There is also a manga-only sequel written by the head illustrator after the head writer left. ''Tokyo Mew Mew a la mode'' renders Ichigo utterly useless (no, really) so that a [[CreatorsPet shiny new character]] named Berii Shirayuki/Mew Berry can take her place. Many fans [[FanonDiscontinuity like to pretend it doesn't exist]].

The manga was written by Reiko Yoshida and illustrated by Mia Ikumi (who later took over as writer). It is licensed by TokyoPop, an anime adaptation by Studio Pierrot directed by Noriyuki Abe (who also directed Manga/YuYuHakusho for Pierrot, and would later go on to helm Manga/{{Bleach}}), and the anime licenced 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, not to mention the fact 4Kids butchered the anime so the series could pass the American censors (as the original Japanese version had sexual innuendo and blatant Christian symbolism; some edits, though, were either for time, to remove anything that could confuse American audiences, stunts that could be imitated such as Bu-ling's fire breathing, and of course, the names). 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).

* YouKilledMyFather: Ryou's parents were killed by a chimera. Goes farther in the anime, where ''the actual monster responsible'' is the final MonsterOfTheWeek.

* {{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.
