Mew Crystal Power... ACTIVATE!Tokyo Crystal Mew
*Logo subject to change whenever the creator gets bored with the opening Title Sequence
is an infamous fanime
created by YouTube
AKA Elena Hull. It is a Fan Film
and unofficial sequel
for the anime
series Tokyo Mew Mew
The plot is centered around Toya Aoyama, the daughter of Masaya and Ichigo, and her best friend Mina Shirogane, the daughter of Ryou and Minto. Shortly after being attacked by a monster, they learn from Ryou's cousin, Yuko Shirogane, that they have the right DNA to be Mew Mews and recruits them into participating in "Mew Project 2.0", which has been created to fight off an alien force known as the Seekon Anima, as Mew Cherry and Mew Blueberry, respectively. Eventually, they meet 8 other Mew Mews, some of whom are also daughters of the original team members.Click here
for a list of episodes. (Don't worry, the ear-raping karaoke opening is only used in the old 1st episode.)
This fanime contains examples of (most of the tropes listed on the Tokyo Mew Mew page also apply.):
- Alpha Bitch — Chi, who is essentially a brattier version of Chiyo from Azumanga Daioh in a fursuit.
- Art Evolution
- As Long as It Sounds Foreign — Most of the characters' names.
- Child Prodigy — Chi and Cookie. Both of them are elementary school aged (7 and 10 years old, respectively), yet go to Toya and Mina's high school. (Chi had some help from her parents too.)
- Curtains Match the Window - Toya, Mina, and Crystal
- Cute Machines — R2012
- Enemy Within — Cookie, this little fact is spoiled numerously in one of the openings and in a short, long before it is brought up in the actual show.
- Foreshadowing — Chi hums U.G.L.Y. when she first appears.
- She also sings a line of it after Cookie trips over her.
- Girl Posse — Two nameless girls who follow Chi around.
- Gratuitous Japanese — "Oi, Cookie-chan!"
- Idiot Hero — Toya, so, so much
- Kewpie Doll Surprise
- Late for School — Mina in Episode 3.
- Live-Action Adaptation — Well... just Episode 3.
- Mr. Exposition — Masaya in the old Episode 1.
- MS Ting / Retsupurae — Done by Follow the Leader Retsupuraers Iotametroid and Boring Trousers.
- Odd Couple — Toya and Mina
- Odd Name Out — All of the characters except Cookie break the usual convention of being named after food.
- Off Model — And how!
- Omake — "Toya The Mew Mew", a series of (near) stick figure shorts supposedly created by Toya (whose personality has been flanderized to make her more annoying and stupid) after getting a hold of the creator's computer.
- Original Character — Most of the cast; the canon characters have been reduced to Satellite Characters.
- Pet the Dog — According to the creator, Chi dresses like a cat in order to honor her dead kitten.
- The Remake — In between making new episodes, the creator is also going back and redoing older episodes. The difference between the two versions of the 1st episode is... staggering.
- Re Write — Large chunks of the original 1st episode's plot were changed when it was remade. In the original 1st episode, Yuko's name was Saki, Toya's parents had already told her that they were superheroes, Toya and Mina just stumbled into Crystal Cafe one day after school instead of being attacked by an enemy, "Mew Project 2.0" was the "Crystal Mew Project", and the girls didn't need to be injected with animal DNA and had simply inherited their mothers' powers. (Though the latter still seems to be true and is the reason why both of them are infused with cat DNA.)
- Straw Critic — MeLOWdee (a character from Tokyo Moay Mew, a parody series) in the 4th Toya The Mew Mew short. No, really.
- Superpowerful Genetics
- Too Dumb to Live — Toya.
- Tsundere — Cookie, whose personality is either "bubbly and sweet" or "snarky and confrontational" depending on the situation.
- You Can't Fight Fate — According to the creator, Mystica, one of the Mews, went back into the past to avoid the future getting destroyed by an enemy. Upon going back into the past, she met and fell in love with her current husband, and became pregnant with Cookie. It turns out Mystica had been harboring an alien entity who became attached to Cookie during the pregnancy, resulting in "Evil Cookie".
- Zettai Ryouiki — Both Toya and Mina in episode R1.
