Production

Manga

Main article: Tokyo Mew Mew (manga)

The Tokyo Mew Mew series began as a manga written by Reiko Yoshida and drawn by Mia Ikumi. They first met in a Chinese restaurant in a metropolitan hotel. Reiko describes Mia as a generous and fun person to work with, and Reiko is the supervisor for the project.[9] Tokyo Mew Mew (東京ミュウミュウ Tōkyō Myū Myū) is a shōjo (girl-oriented) manga series, created by illustrator Mia Ikumi and writer Reiko Yoshida. ...

For each volume of Tokyo Mew Mew, the basic story plot is determined by Reiko and two other editors. They then turn it into a scenario, then finalize it. They then present it to Mia, who adds her own ideas to the scenario. The end result is a first draft of the manuscript.[9] A scenario (from the Italian, that which is pinned to the scenery) is a brief description of an event or a series of events. ... A manuscript (Latin manu scriptus, written by hand), strictly speaking, is any written document that is put down by hand, in contrast to being printed or reproduced some other way. ...


Tokyo Mew Mew appears to be influenced from Mia's earlier work, Tokyo Black Cat Girl; they both have a female heroine who can transform into a cat with animal influenced moves, antagonists who appear monstrous, and having a love life. The basic plot of Tokyo Black Cat Girl was expanded; there is now a group of animal-influenced heroines. The connection between them is strengthened by that after Ikumi finished Tokyo Black Cat Girl in February 2000, her next big project was Tokyo Mew Mew.[10] The character Masha is in both stories, and has similar abilities.

Spanning 29 issues, the manga was serialized in the Kodansha's shōjo magazine Nakayoshi from September 2000 to February 2003. The story is succeeded by Tokyo Mew Mew à la Mode, a two-volume sequel to Tokyo Mew Mew, originally serialized in Nakayoshi from April 2003 to February 2004, spanning ten issues.

The anime adaptation is very different from the manga. While the basic plot of the anime is the same, there are new characters, Chimera Anima and attacks for the Mew Mews.

In the manga, Ichigo receives nearly all the attention, as if she was the only Mew against the Aliens; the other major characters are treated as if they were minor characters. In the anime, the other main characters have much more backstory and unique personaities, with whole episodes are devoted to them as individuals. Keiichiro is probably the character who received the most development; in the manga, he is seen very briefly, and his only history was helping Ryou with the Mew Project.


Ichigo and Pudding's family were the only ones shown in the manga[11], and only briefly. In the anime, Mint and Pudding's families were given an episode each, Lettuce's family is shown briefly, and Zakuro's family and her childhood is mentioned.


Relationships between characters are also deepened. Ichigo is the only one in the manga to have a love life. Three of the five Mew Mews have an episode devoted to love lives in the anime. In the manga, it is shown briefly the Lettuce may like Ryou, but in the anime, it is given more detail. The relationship between Mint and Zakuro is also deepened; in the manga, Zakuro rarely said anything to Mint, giving the impression of ignoring her. In the anime, she appears to acknowledge Mint more, with their relationship like that of siblings.


Events are in different places; in the manga, Zakuro first faces a Chimera Anima in the dance studio.[citation needed] In the anime, she first sees one in a church.[citation needed] Events are changed; in the manga, the girls meet up before their DNA is injected. In the anime, they do not know each other until Ichigo finds out that they are Mew Mews. Some events also happen in a different order; in the anime the Blue Knight's introduction is moved to before the first Mew Aqua is found and before Ichigo and Masaya reveal their feelings for each other.


According to Mia, she was the only one who helped with the production of the anime.[citation needed] She was able to give her opinion on everything but the voices.[citation needed]


The anime series was produced by Studio Pierrot and aired on TV Aichi (broadcasts in Nagoya) and TV Tokyo (broadcasts in Tokyo) in Japan. It started airing one day after the forth volume of the Japanese manga was released, and ended on March 29, 2003. It consists of 52 half hour episodes.[2] “Animé” redirects here. ...

Later in the series, the animation/artwork changed starting around episode 40 – the characters start to look more detailed and more bishojo/bishonen; The Mew Mew's eyes changed, and their hair color when in Mew form is brighter. The animation style experienced other minor changes during the series, but this is the most noticeable.

Characters' names origin

The main characters in Tokyo Mew Mew are named after foods.[14][15]

The Mew Mews are named after fruits – or other foods – that are similar to their signature colors: Ichigo's pink is similar to the red of a strawberry, Lettuce's green is similar to types of lettuce, Pudding's yellow is similar to the color of flan,[16] Zakuro's color is a red-violet similar to the red of a pomegranate, and Ringo's red is the same as a red apple's color. Mint is the only Mew whereas it is unclear of the connection of her signature color, blue, to the herb she is named after; however, her signature color may be referring to one of the colors of mint candies, which are made from the herb's oil. Homemade flan, Florida style Crème caramel, flan, or caramel custard is a kind of rich custard dessert with a layer of soft caramel on top, as opposed to crème brûlée, which is custard with a hard caramel top. ...

The main characters in Tokyo Mew Mew have the kanji for colors in their last names, with the exception of Ichigo and Zakuro.

Ichigo's kanji ( momo?) means "peach", and Zakuro's kanji ( fuji?), means "wisteria". In Japanese, "pink" is called "peach color"."Peach color" (桃色 momo-iro?)[17] does not refer to the color of the peach fruit — a peach's color is called "skin color" (肌色 hada-iro?).[17] Although "Purple" has its own kanji ( murasaki?),[17] "light purple" is written wisteria color (藤色 fuji-iro?).

On September 5, 2007, the Mew Mew Power page on 4kids' site was removed,[25] and on September 6, 2007, the forum was removed from 4Kids.TV,[26] confriming that 4Kids was not able to obtain the second half. Around September 19, the Mew Mew Power page from their properties on the "4kidsentertainment.com" site was deleted, implying that they lost the rights to the first half, or it expired.

When 4kids announced that it licensed Tokyo Mew Mew in 2004, this caused disdain for fans of the original show. The "Mew Mew Alliance" was launched shortly afterwards, asking fans of the original show to write to 4kids to release an uncut, bilingual version, which they do not typically do.[32]


Tokyo Mew Mew has been described as "fun and entertaining", as a great show for kids and for fans of Sailor moon. Reviewers have compared Tokyo Mew Mew to Sailor Moon[14][33]since they both have a female protagonist, five original members who have a signature color and power, and same basic plot. Because of this, Tokyo Mew Mew might be seen as a clone of Sailor Moon.[14] For the title character, see Sailor Moon (character) and for the first story arc, see Sailor Moon (arc). ...


Very notable about Tokyo Mew Mew is the message of saving the environment; the Mew Mews are infused with an endangered animal's DNA, the aliens cause environmental damage, and the Mew Aquas repair said damage. However, this message does not stay throughout the series.
