Just a warning to young readers, this manga does involve some ecchi (slang term in the Japanese language for lewd or lascivious conduct) contents. I advise for a mature audience. Ichigo 100% is such a long manga.. I only read up to chapter 19 so far and still slowly continuing the manga. No explicit scenes for me so far. 😉
