Tokyo Mew Mew New Debuts First Trailer

Tokyo Mew Mew has been hiding out on its own for years, but at last, the hit series is set to make a comeback. Fans learned last year the shojo classic was gearing up for a special revival, and Tokyo Mew Mew New promises it will do right by fans. Now, the anime’s first full trailer has dropped, and it will take fans back to the days when cat girls ran the industry.

As you can see below, the new trailer gives fans a good look at Tokyo Mew Mew New, and it is as pretty as ever. Some familiar faces can be found throughout the promo, and its music is pretty much perfect. The song “Cat!! Shite Super Girls” by Smewthie is used to hype the clip, and the promo ends with a premiere update.

TV???????????? ?????


It turns out Tokyo Mew Mew New will begin screening this July. We were also given a slew of casting announcements including Yuma Uchiha as Masaya Aoyama, Yuichi Nakamura as Ryo Shirogane, Yusuke Shirai as Keiichiro Akasaka, and Kaori Ishihara as Masha. These stars will join the main cast including Yuki Tenma, Mirai Hinata, Ryoko Juni, Rian Toda, and Momoka Ishii.

For those unfamiliar with Tokyo Mew Mew New, the manga got its start in September 2000 under Reiko Yoshida and Mia Ikumi. The magical girl franchise ran for just three years, but its impact on shojo readers lingers to this day. The series’ legacy pushes on thanks to Pierrot’s anime adaptation back in 2002 and the manga’s 2020 sequel. Now, Tokyo Mew Mew New is ready to revamp the franchise for a new generation, so you can read up on its official synopsis below:

“On her first date with the cutest boy in school, Ichigo is exposed to a mysterious ray that meshes her DNA with that of the endangered Iriomote wildcat. She soon discovers that she has developed superhuman abilities and enhanced agility. Her new powers are put to the test when she leads a team with four other girls, each endowed with special abilities of their own. Together, they must now protect the Earth from an alien menace known as Deep Blue.”
