    I'm a sucker for magical girl books. All I ask for is cute art (check), a sweet main character (check), some kind of overarching quest (check), and silly catchphrases (check!) and I will love it probably way more than it really deserves. The environmental theme (the Mew Mew girls have all been infused with the DNA of endangered animals, and there's a "saving the environment" thread) is... not exactly well-developed. It's just the backdrop for fighting monsters in adorable costumes. I am totally fine with this.

    Lo dije una vez y lo vuelvo a decir: si hay una serie que me hace sentir nostálgica, entusiasmada y avergonzada al mismo tiempo es, sin duda, Mew Mew Power, porque sólo ella tenía el suficiente mewmewestilo y toda la mewmewgracia necesaria para, que entre mi mejor amiga de la secundaria y yo, fangirlearamos a extremos desconocidos y esas cosas que a veces me temo aceptar que hice cuando niña.Y, como muchos animes, Mew Mew Power inició con un manga (y este es su primer omnibus).Tras una larga reflexión en la que me dije a mí misma que nadie moriría si tomaba mis ahorros y compraba algunas cosas que hicieran feliz a esa parte nostálgica de mí...¡Y no me arrepiento de nada!Pero, volviendo a la reseña:En el primer omnibus fueron compilados el tomo 1 y 2 de la serie, junto a los extras que ambos traían. Dejando la historia, más o menos así:Ichigo Momomiya es una chica común y corriente que ha logrado reunir el valor suficiente para invitar a su amor escolar, Aoyama-kun, a salir. Queriendo lucir interesante a ojos del muchacho, Ichigo opta por ir a un museo, donde se ha montado una exhibición que busca concientizar a las personas sobre los animales en peligro de extinción. Pero lo que Ichigo no sabía era que se encontraba a unos metros del Cafe Mew Mew y que un experimento iba a salir mal, convirtiéndola a ella y a otras cuatro muchachas en las Mew Mew, las defensoras de la justicia y del planeta Tierra.Con su nueva identidad a cuestas, Ichigo no sólo deberá de aparentar que todo es tan normal como era antes, sino que deberá de reunir a su equipo y luchar contra los aliens que quieren apoderarse de la Tierra.Entre amigas testarudas, un sueldo de 12 dólares la hora y un trío de guapos muchachos distrayendola, ¿podrá Ichigo salvar el planeta y algún día volver a ser la niña que era?¡Tener este manga en mis manos me hace extremadamente feliz!Tokyo Mew Mew es una historia que peca de cursi, cargada de clichés y momentos que en un principio encontrarías tiernos, pero que en verdad son muy, muy extraños.¿A qué me refiero? No a la manera en que Kish se comporta en torno a Ichigo, créanme. Si no a la manera en que la autora considera que las niñas visten y actúan xDUna cosa es permitir que tu protagonista menor de edad se enfrente al alien hormonal en una pijama que ni siquiera puede cubrirle enteramente la barriga; otra muy distinta es que el muchacho al que las fans debemos de acpetar como el amor de la vida de Ichigo diga estas cosas y sean consideradas como "el romance correcto" del manga: Pero, bueno, creo que fuera de eso, no tengo tantas quejas. A cada página que leo recuerdo a mi amiga de la secundaria que aspiraba a ser como Zoey/Ichigo y me doy de facepalms al recordar las cosas que hicimos juntas.Para la nostalgia, es un buen manga.Para el aburrimiento, es un buen manga.Para el shipping villano x heroína, es un buen manga.La historia tiene huecos y es un poco deficiente, pero me gusta tomarlo el hecho de que no aspiraba a ser la siguiente gran obra del manga para chicas y que, como Mia Ikumi lo comentó entre sus páginas, fue creado más para la diversión suya y de los editores que para ser la historia de suspenso que ella en un inicio imaginó.Los personajes no son complejos y puedes llegar a quererlos fácilmente por ello. Son como niños. Incluso Masha, que es el acompañante robot de Ichigo, es adorable a su manera (y quiero un peluche de él).Los aliens, que son los malos de la historia, todavía no hacen su gran aparición. Excepto por Kish/Dren, mi favorito. Él aparece al final del primer tomo, durante la famosa escena (esa que las fans vemos una y otra y otra y otra vez, aunque no lo admitamos) en la que roba el primer beso de Ichigo.(No es spoiler, porque hasta enel opening original del anime lo ponen de buenas a primeras. Aparte, me divierte que, no importa cuánto nos quejemos ahora, todas tuvimos ese momento de niñas en que no podíamos dejar de verlo) Me emociona, me enoja y me hace tener mis momentos de fangirl y por eso me encanta. Tuve que recurrir a mi twitter (como pueden notar) para no llenar de mis tonterías esta buena página.Así que, mientras les recomiendo este manga por lo que es, me paso a leer el siguiente de los tomos, para continuar siendo este pedazo de carne weeaboo en negación que soy~

    I didn't plan on reading Tokyo Mew Mew so soon, but when the opportunity presented itself, it was hard to say no to such a pretty pink package. I actually watched the first part of the English dubbed anime of Tokyo Mew Mew, so coming into this I already have a certain fondness for these characters. However, reading this, I was surprised how hard it was for me to get into the characters. The story is fun, and cute, and a little flirty, but something about the dialogue didn't sit right with me. A lot is going on in these first two volumes as we're introduced to every main character and the role they play in the story. Each girl of this bio-weapon squad has to discover their power and join team Mew Mew, so introductions are fast and boss battles are happening every few pages to get them into the fighting spirit. This I had no problem with, but the dialogue kind of ruined it for me.I don't know whether to blame the translation to English or the original text, but the conversations between characters did not sound natural. It was hard for me to just let loose and enjoy these adorable girls being adorable when I keep having to stop and cringe at lines that are either way too hyperbolic for the situation or just don't sound right in English. I wish I could give you examples of what I mean, but I don't have the book in front of me. It may just have been the style of the manga, I could understand that these girls are like the super-cute x1000 versions of normal people, so some things in the manga are just going to sound ridiculous and purposely so. But then there would be this stretch were I wouldn't notice any problems with their speech and then BAM! awkward sentence.Unfortunately my problems didn't stop there... Masaya. He's apparently this great guy, which came across pretty well in the anime, but here his most stand out moment is when he gives Ichigo her signature cat collar. And what is suppose to be this adorable gesture was not only very possessive, but rather unsettling for me. It's difficult for me to describe exactly what it was about this moment without pointing at the page and going "there, look at that", but keep in mind he's giving her a collar meant for an animal and I'm sorry, but that pushes one of my buttons. His possessiveness in his dialogue coupled with his expressions in the art made me uncomfortable. So here's the equation that inadvertently happened in my mind when I saw this.GIRL: Very sweet, but pretty much does whatever other people want her to do without much objection.GUY: Totally perfect till things don't go exactly how he wants it too, which is when he suddenly does a complete 180 and gets really possessive giving GIRL a collar meant for a pet. Wow, how incredibly romantic. That in no way remind me of any sort of unhealthy relationship dynamic. Nope. None whatsoever.I know I'm probably thinking about this way to hard and being too harsh. I mean, Tokyo Mew Mew is suppose to be this fun manga with an interesting plot about endangered animals, and aliens, and cute girls in equally cute costumes. I need to step back and remember to enjoy those parts. Which I did! The girls were so much fun and I can see how the plot is going to get more and more interesting. ... but I just can't get past that moment. I know that this guy is the romantic lead of the entire story and I am just so uncomfortable with how this blah moment just barged into the middle of my good time. However, I've decided that I will keep reading the series, it deservers an honest shot and who am I to deny it that. I just hope that I don't encounter more of these sort of moments.

    Talk about a trip down nostalgia lane! The first time I read Tokyo Mew Mew was going into my freshman year of high school, back when it was being published by Tokyopop. I didn't own the series myself but between all the friends who collected it, I was able to read it. Recently I was hit with the urge to re-read the manga, and thus decided to buy the Kodansha Comics omnibus editions with the updated translations.For those unfamiliar, Tokyo Mew Mew is a magical girl series centered on Ichigo Momomiya and four girls that become her teammates in an on-going battle against a race of aliens who are trying to take over the Earth by infecting animals with alien parasites to use as biological weapons. Ichigo and the girls are all fused with the DNA of various "red data" animals that are near extinction to help them combat the alien threat.Cynics will probably take one look at this series and denounce it as uninteresting due to the heavy number of magical girl tropes, cues borrowed from other magical girls series (especially Sailor Moon,) and the additional slice-of-life aspect that pervades the storyline.Personally, I don't think that anyone should let that prevent them from giving this series a try. It tends to be pretty light-hearted, and for a lot of younger individuals who were still cutting their teeth on anime back in the early 2000s, this was the gateway defining magical girl series for them. It's fun and the characters have a lot of heart, and my opinion of it hasn't diminished since the first time I read them as a young teen. I do recommend reading the omnibus editions by Kodansha Comics if you want to pick it up; Tokyopop doesn't deserve anyone's money, and even if you could find Tokyopop's single volumes of the manga, the translations are lacking compared to the Kodansha editions. (The only issues I really take with Kodansha's English translations are the shortening of Zakuro's name to "Zacro", and translating Pudding's speech tag of "no da!" into the longer "na no da!", which feels a bit excessive.)I've enjoyed this first volume and can't wait to continue on with the second~.

    4.5 starsThis was fantastic! What a lucky break--I didn't even know this existed until I happened upon it at the library. I loved this so much! Tokyo Mew Mew is exciting, funny, adorable, and just overall outstanding! Ichigo is so fun and cute; she is a wonderful main character! The art style is also very pretty and easily readable; I didn't get confused during the actions sequences at all. I can't wait to read the next omnibus volume and see what comes next. Honestly, reading this reminded me of why I love manga so much!

    It isn't sailor moon, but I liked the idea of magical girls with the dna of endangered animals and of course, my favorite is Lettuce. She's quiet and makes mistakes when sometimes the other characters come of as perfect.

    So this series does not start off really well. This series is supposed to by kind of corny, which is usually rather ok with me. I'm not sure what it is with this one, but we didn't quite hit it off. Though I do like the rest of the series.

    I’d say 3.5 stars. It wasn’t the greatest manga (Sailor Moon is better) but it was super nostalgic and I’m a sucker for ships. Overall, it was an enjoyable trip down memory lane.

    I loved this book. I wish I had known about it awhile ago. It is so much like sailor moon because there are five girls who were injected with this serum that turns them into a new species of human/animals. These girls do not know about their animal powers yet, so it is up to a young girl named Ichigo to find the other four girls so they can unite and fight aliens who are trying to destroy earth so they can take it over. The girls do not get along when they meet each other, but they begin to develop a bond with each other overtime. I would have to say I like this manga more than sailor-moon because the girls are not fit into a stereotypical identity, and they are named as food such as lettuce, mint and strawberry (Ichigo). They are not afraid to hide their identities from the public. They were posted in the newspaper for fighting evil, and the sailor scouts were not. I like that these girls get public attention, are not afraid to be themselves and are not fit into stereotypical labels.

    Love it! I grew up watching the English dubbed anime and I was so upset when they discontinued the show. -.- So, I decided to eventually pick up the manga to "refresh" my memory and to try and catch up to the part where they left off in the show.It was a bit hard to get used to the names at first. Zoey was called Ichigo, Renee was called Zacro, Bridgette was called Lettuce, Corina was called Mint, etc.I love that the manga had a notes section where you could find the definitions of the Japanese words/phrases that I wasn't familiar with.Overall, I really enjoyed it considering it was the very FIRST manga I had ever read. :)

    Loved it! I watched the anime when I was a kid and was thoroughly upset that they discontinued the show. -.- And just when it was getting sooo good! :( So, I picked up the manga to "refresh" my mind and to catch up to the part where they left off in the show.It was a bit hard to get used to the names at first. Zoey was called Ichigo. Renee was called Zacro. Bridgette was called Lettuce. Corina was called Mint, etc. Loved that the manga had a notes section where it had the definitions of a few Japanese terms/phrases that I wasn't familiar with.Overall, I really enjoyed it considering it was the very FIRST manga I ever read. :)

    I really liked this series. I wish there were more books like these! Manga is filled with violence and....... too many boy stuff. This makes me sad......

    Think I'll try the anime instead, really wasn't that fussed on the manga. It's like it couldn't work out if it for kids or for teenagers...

    Doing a marathon of my magical girl manga and I loved this as much as I did my first read. Goodreads really need a feature that allows me to re read something!
