Alright so it's been a hot minute since I saw this anime when I was a kid (as it was my first anime besides the usual pokemon on cartoonnetwork) but that doesn't mean I'll be blinded by nostalgia.    It's the classical magical girl anime storyline with kemonomimi characters named after desserts. That concept alone pulled me in right away as a child while reading the manga.   And I still hold true to that! The character designs are cute just like the art, that gives off a very early 2000s anime vibe that I enjoy! The music, I find, can be a bit...badly put together. As a kid I tried to convince myself that the girl's transformation music was totally epic cool but it's really not.  As for the story, it can get super repetitive at times and the main love interest is the only bland character to me. Like his only motivation is being a cool dude™ tree-hugger that makes the main magical girl's heart go doki doki Even when he's in his *spoilers* other form(s).  I hate to say it but having passed my "subz>dubz!!11!1" days, the 4kids version holds my attention way more, even if only in a funny type of way. The 4kids transformation music is much better as well so it also has that going for it. (Ps. If you plan on watching any version of Tokyo Mew Mew, you ought to know that the original and the 4kids version are so different they're like completely different shows so just keep that in mind,, it's not just a regular english dub. They were cutting and splitting hairs at every crossroads which was the main reason why I never respected it as a kid. But I mean, now that I've gotten older, I get creative liberties and all, I don't care as much about that now so yeah what I said above still stands) In Summary: Best Part of this Anime: Magical girl character designs (I will love to draw them all the time!) Worst Part of this Anime: The bland ass tree hugging gary stu of a love interest like wtf this boy is blander than the early disney movie princes tf


Tokyo Mew Mew isn't perfect. There are some things that are amazing, but there is also a lot that could have been done much better. I love nekomimi, and the main chacter being part cat was what originally drew me in. Overall it is a decent series.   Story:I love how in the final episodes a lot of small things come together and make sense, yet the actual ending is pure cliche. It truely dissapointed me. Not that i don't like happy ending's but how everything magicly gets resolved in the final epidode is just a terrible story line which seems to have no real thought put into the ending. A bit of Tradegy never hurt anyone.Animation:This is the only thing that truely annoyed me every time I watched this. Espicially in the fighting sceenes the background would always stay  the same when Ichigo used her move (Cloudy sky) even if it was nightime or she was in building. The other's I could understand because the backgrounds went with their Red Data Animals, But i don't get hers. If I ever watched many episodes in a row I got to the point where I would skip the long metomorphisis Sceenes, simply becaus they happened to often (EVERY TIME) and when all 5 transformed at once it took almost two minutes of the same thing i saw over and over again.Sound: I honestly didn't listen to rate the sound. Besides talking i don't think I ever picked up on background noise unless it was part of the story.Characters:In the begining the charictors are all cliched, and as the story progresses only a few of them actally develop and change. Unless there was an episode focus solely on one character you never got much background information on their lifes, For example you never see Lettuce's Family or house, or ever hear of them i don't think. However for the characters that did chaneg their stories were very good. For some reason I grew attached to Kish and he became my favorite character even with his insane evil outbursts.
