The manga was written by Reiko Yoshida and illustrated by Mia Ikumi (who later took over as writer). It is licensed by TokyoPop and the anime by Creator/FourKidsEntertainment (who retitled it ''Mew Mew Power''). Only the first half of the series was dubbed and broadcast in the United States before it was dropped after 4Kids was unsuccessful in getting a merchandise deal. Rumors flew around that the show would be re-licensed like ''Manga/OnePiece'' was, but as of yet, it remains in limbo. Tokyopop also lost the license to the manga, which ''was'' rescued by Kodansha USA, who re-released it in omnibus form (along with ALA Mode).

* {{Macekre}}: They change the setting from Japan to America, despite it being probably the most Japanese show they've ever dealt with. It was initially touted by 4Kids as "Hollywood Mew Mew" (which eventually became an episode name). Al Kahn is quoted in a press release for this as having said "By the time we localize the programs, kids won't even know they're from Japan any more." They actually made episode 12 in Japan into episode 1 in America and threw it straight into CanonDiscontinuity, not to mention the ending of that episode in the dub.

* TheChosenOne: Although the injections are initially presented as an "accident", it becomes clear that the girls were singled out after a search because they were the planet's chosen protectors.

* [[AliensSpeakingEnglish Aliens Speaking Japanese]]: The aliens all speak fluent Japanese, but it is unknown if they learnt it or it's the language they use normally. Even more confusing when their InnerMonologue is in Japanese.

Added DiffLines:

* EasilyForgiven: The girls remain on remarkably good terms with the aliens throughout the entire duration of the series, despite the aliens' repeated attempts to kill them all and purge the planet of humanity. This is especially the case for Pudding, who constantly seeks to befriend Tart despite all the prior murder attempts.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalAlternateEnding: The manga version ends with Ichigo and Masaya getting together by celebrating a fake wedding, with a brief SequelHook with Berry (the main character in the sequel manga, ''Tokyo Mew Mew - à la mode'') passing by the Mew Mew Café only to discover it's closed. The anime instead ends on a more generic HereWeGoAgain with the main characters going to fight an undescribed new menace.

Added DiffLines:

* PrematureEmpowerment: All five girls had this (they were given their powers without being asked) and Ichigo's quest was to find the others after Ryou had injected them. Zakuro and Lettuce had the worst reactions to it, Zakuro just didn't want to join them (I think I remember something about her feeling like Ryou should've asked her first) and Lettuce's powers went out of control until she was told what was happening to her.
