Tokyo Mew Mew, the shoujo series from the early 2000s, had won over hearts with its powerful female protagonists who fought against villains.
The anime is inspiring a remake that goes by the name Tokyo Mew Mew New in 2022, and it’s high time we enjoyed Ichigo and her team in amped-up costumes and transformation sequences.
Tokyo Mew Mew New will be released on July 6, 2022. Check out this cute trailer that shows the otherworldly powers of the Mew Mew team:
In the video, Ichigo is on a date with her crush and notices a cat that only she can see. After a mysterious Earthquake, the cat’s shadow will enter her body, thus resulting in her receiving new powers.
Along with Ichigo, four other girls will also feel the spirits of different animals entering them. These girls will form a new and revamped group to protect the Earth from threats.
Check out some of the extra cast members that the trailer revealed as well:
|Quiche||Nobuhiko Okamoto as||Karma Akabane (Assassination Classroom)|

During the run of the original series, Tokyo Mew Mew’s plot was inspiring to many women, can the new installation serve the same purpose? It has some big shoes to fill, and I hope that the anime serves us some sparkly new twists.
