You should watch the original. 4kids dub, Mew Mew Power is just ugh. I don't even know how to describe it. They edited/cut out a lot of things and they changed all the names. The voice acting was okay. Although Aoyama and the aliens had it bad (my poor Kish T-T). The music was okay and I did enjoyed the transformation music. The plot was slightly different. They changed the aliens' backstory a little bit. Besides 4kids never got to finish dubbing the whole series so if you want to know what happens to watch the original.

You know, I might actually register to follow this. How hard is Tumblr to use?


(Also~. Still thinking about turning the series into a fannovel. Should I? [On the side of my numerous other projects.])

Pluto, Tumblr is so simple to use! It's really fun too! It's much better than facebook that's for sure. As for for fannovel go for it! You're not alone on the numerous protects. I have so many stories that I want to write T-T.

XD, maybe I'll register.

And, yeah, XD, I know how you feel. I have about ... 20 different projects to work on, but I'm juggling 4 at the moment. (And when I do do the TMM fannovel, there will be plenty of digging to fill in plot holes and fixing lacking spots of characterization.)

Haha, I have three KxI fanfics in mind right now. I oringally had one, but two pop inside my head today. I was watching an old KxI amv that I made and then I was thinking about how disappointing the endings for both the anime and the manga was. Then bam! Two fanfics ideas. I'll probably go with the idea that came from watching that old amv.

Haha, those are always fun. I have a couple KxI ideas, too. But I'm also wanting to implement the pairing better in the fannovel than it was in the main series. As well as use Masaya a little more realistically. I know the "perfection" is a guise to hide how bitter he really is, but Ichigo can't be that obsessed with him ... can she?

If I remember correctly in the manga he does have a slightly better development. There's a flashback of his life and he mentions how much he hated humans and he acted prefect so he could get adopted into the right family. Then he met Ichigo and that slightly changed his views on people. I wish that was mentioned in the anime. However, I do agree with your idea to make him more realistic. He really needs it despite that little development that the manga him. He's so just plain.

Yeah, I have the TMM manga downloaded onto my computer. And the anime had that flashback too, but in more detail. The anime was, in general, just better, XD.

Oh, and I did make a Tumblr. Not sure what to do with it now, though, XD.

Tokyo mew mew was my second favorite manga besides sailor moon. I first bought it when it came out when I was in 8th grade. I have the entire series and the sequel, the entire subbed series on DVD, 2 UFO maid plushes of minto and ichigo and a super rare figurine and keychain of ichigo. I often shipped ichigoxRyou in my fics. I didn't like kish or Masaya. Mint would be my next favorite character.

I totally thought I shared my two cents on Tokyo Mew Mew. o_o

Tokyo Mew Mew, to me, is like a big rip off of Sailor Moon XDD I see way too many similarities. I mean obviously Tokyo Mew Mew has it's own story line, different characters, blah blah blah, but yeah. I only got into it a tiny bit back in the day, and admittedly when I first picked up the manga and then saw a couple anime I was like "Oh...this completely reminds me of Sailor Moon, but with animals..." XD

It may be a magical girl thing and Sailor Moon set the bar and ever since, magical girl series began to pull ideas from Sailor Moon.

I can say I liked it a bit, even thought it has great similarities with Sailor Moon. (Spirit Crystals reminds me of Hostie / Pure Hearts. The strawberry bell looked like the crystal carillon, etc) But, well, Sailor Moon started a genre, of course they were going to be more of those coming after it. (And Sailor Moon more or less continued what Cutie Honey started)

The big problem for me was the sequel: A la mode is like a bad doujinshi to me. Mia Akumi's style is awesomely cute, yes, but Berry is obviously a Sue. (The BAD kind.) The Saint rose Crusaders could have been way better villains, and the others mews could have been more than being simply there to remind everyone that this is a sequel.

What annoyed me mostly in this serie was all the "omgdoesaoyamakunloveme" parts. I know this is a shoujo, but why must Ichigo always be so... shy? I mean, come on, it's just a guy, don't go in an angst fest because you're afraid of his reactions! Do like Usagi! Have angsts only when you're not hearing of him for ages, even if you know deep inside you that he's dead. (Stars arc)

I liked Lettuce :I But she is pretty much forgotten in the fandom.

poor Lettuce Sad She needs more love.

Yeah that's what bother me about the IchigoxAoyama ship. Now I don't hate the guy, but Ichigo constantly going crazy over the guy is a bit annoying. Like how in the anime right after Kisshu stole her first kiss she was freaking out and couldn't face Aoyama. Why does that matter Ichigo? I mean I understand getting your first kiss should be by a guy you actually like, but come on! Aoyama won't know! It wasn't like he was there! If he was then yeah I guess it would be embarrassing having your first kiss stolen by a weird alien. Plus she's only 13 years old shes acting like he'll be the only man she'll ever love. Sorry for the mini rant. >.>

@ Lady
A lot magical series borrow ideas from Sailor Moon. What's so neat about TMM is that you can actually feel sorry for the villains. They live on a terrible planet and the only place they dream of is taken by us humans.

shameful add for my forum:

This happens in lots of shoujo anime though. I think this has to do with cultural differences. I don't know how to describe it, but its the same reason Usagi and the girls get all blushy when they are talking about kissing. It's a cultural thing and if you don't understand how those sorts of things are in japan it will always seem weird to us.

I have the first omnibus edition of the TMM manga but I haven't gotten around to reading it yet so I haven't formed an opinion about it. I've seen all of the anime subbed though and I enjoyed it a lot. I love all the environmentalist themes and how the Aliens aren't really as evil as they appear at the beginning but have their own reasons for their actions. If I had to pick a favorite character, it would be Zakuro just because I love how cool and butt kicking she is and Mint x Zakuro is one of my favorite pairings. I know I'm in the minority in TMM fandom but I actually love Ichigo x Masaya and I don't understand why people think their relationship is dull considering that
Spoiler:
 
. Personally I never understood the love for Ichigo x Quiche as frankly Quiche comes a bit too stalkery to me and I don't like that he keeps trying to kiss Ichigo even when she tells him no. It's like in real life Quiche would probably be arrested for sexual harassment. I also hated the 4Kids dub, particularly the really bad voice acting though I do actually like the English soundtrack, especially the English opening theme and the dub transformation music. I also wish there was a second season of TMM or at least a movie.

Yep the Aoyama twist is awesome and he is really a complex character. I like said in my earlier post Ichigo going competently crazy over the guy ruin the AoyamaxIchigo pairing to me. Also in the manga he's almost on very page. At least in the anime they space out his appearance.

I know Kisshu is quite stalkerish and such, but I still love Kishigo pairing. I love how his love for Ichigo gets in the way of his mission. I just love this aspect. Also I feel like the only thing he wants for Ichigo is love and attention. Something he probably doesn't get from his planet. But forcing someone to kiss you isn't cool. I could go on. ^^

@Brit
Maybe it is a cultural difference, but I feel like other shojo seires the main character's feelings for their crush isn't extreme like Ichigo's.

I guess I love Ichigo x Masaya so much because Ichigo actually gets the nice guy that she actually wanted at the start. It seems like in most shoujo anime, the main heroine crushes after the nice bishounen guy but he always dumps her for someone else and she winds up getting paired up randomly with the big jerk that has a dark past but really has a heart of gold at the end and that just gets kind of cliche after while. It's nice and refreshing to have a simple "girl meets boy" storyline for a change and that the girl actually gets what she wants. Plus, I prefer Ryo with Keiichiro than with Ichigo. And Masaya is voiced by Megumi Ogata in the Japanese version!

Aoyama's voice actor as voices Yukito from CCS!! I always think of Yukito when Aoyama talks.

You do make a good point Neon that Ichigo actually ends up with the guy she likes from the beginning.

As for Ryou. I don't mind the IchigoxRyou pairing. I don't ship him with Keiichiro because well after the episode about how his family died I think he raised Ryou after that. I seem them having a brotherly love for each other. The same goes for MintoxZakuro. I view Minto's crush on Zakuro as admiration and sisterly love.

Karin I think takes the whole embarrased about who you like to a whole nother level...and i've seen some other series that do it tot he extreme of Ichigo. I think there are some girls in japan that act like this, and anime is just exaggerating it to extremes for humor or something.

I don't think it's even much of a cultural issue. I think it's just a conventional way of creating drama in a romance story. Bella acted the same way abotu Edward in the Twilight novels for example.

This isn't what I'd call a nice exemple. x)
I saw some comparison between the Kodansha and Tokyopop version on youtube, and even thought the reviewer quickly passed on the detail, apparently, they inherited of Flanagan's weird choices of words...
It personally doesn't bothers me. If I ever actively get into TMM, I guess I'd buy the omnibuses

I read a la mode with Tokyopop's translation, and liked it ^^ Actually, the comparison review I saw wasn't meant to criticize Tokyopop, it just also pointed the same big default Flanagan did with Sailor Moon.
