Would you enjoy a good Shoujo, magical girl anime with enough bishi-ness that would cause even a non-fangirl to squeal? Did you love to watch Sailor Moon, Cardcaptor Sakura, or Mysterious Thief Saint Tail? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you're gonna love Tokyo Mew Mew (a.k.a. Mew Mew Power). This 52 episode series aired in Japan from April, 2002 until March, 2003 and is based off the popular seven volume manga by Mia Ikumi and Reiko Yoshida. (I highly recommend the manga, which has been translated and presented in English by Tokyopop. Both Ms. Ikumi and Ms. Yoshida add background notes and other interesting facts to each volume.)
The following explains what Tokyo Mew Mew is all about:
Tokyo Mew Mew is an entertaining (never boring) anime series that will have you hooked after the very first episode. The character designs and series detail is gorgeous. Not to mention, one can learn about protecting our environment in real life. Let's keep the Earth beautiful and show these aliens (hey, ya never know) we appreciate our Planet (^_^).
Note: My DVD's were obtained through CD Japan. If you order from them, make sure your DVD player can handle the region and be aware of rather large shipping and handling costs.
