At the start of the series, a young girl named Ichigo Momomiya attends an endangered species exhibit with her ‘crush’ and future boyfriend, Masaya Aoyama. After an earthquake, Ichigo and four other girls are bathed in a strange light. A cat appears before Ichigo, then merges with her. The next day she begins acting like a cat and, after meeting Ryou Shirogane and Keiichiro Akasaka, learns that she was infused with the DNA of the Iriomote Cat. Ryou and Keiichiro explain that this allows her to transform into Mew Ichigo, a powerful heroic cat girl. She is ordered to defeat chimera animas—alien parasites—which infect animals and turn them into monsters. Ryou and Keiichiro instruct Ichigo to find the four other girls from the exhibit—the remaining Mew Mews. They are Minto Aizawa, a spoiled, wealthy girl who is infused with the genes of the Ultramarine Lorikeet; Retasu Midorikawa, a meek but smart girl who endures constant bullying and absorbs the genes of the Finless Porpoise; young Bu-Ling Huang, who receives the genes of the Golden Lion Tamarin; and Zakuro Fujiwara, a professional model infused with the genes of the Gray Wolf.
What I think of the anime:
I think the anime and the mood from it feels cheery because of the colors as they remind me of rainbows. I’ve watched it more than once and their uniforms are cute. The hero saving vibe reminds me of Sailor Moon where TMM saves people also. I don’t think there’s much to say about it that would catch your interest. I haven’t watched anime much lately and TMM was the last anime I had rewatched. If you’re new to watching anime I think you should try watching it as you might like it. There’s 26 episodes. Tokyo Mew Mew New is out but I’m assuming it’s a continuation of the first one or same storyline with new characters? I didn’t do a thorough research but that’s just my guess. I’d rate it ten out of ten stars of the first one. If you’ve seen it before let me know what you thought of it.
