YMMV / Tokyo Mew Mew

  • Americans Hate Tingle: Aoyama Masaya, poster boy for Die for Our Ship, gets none of that in Japan.
  • Complete Monster: The anime version of Deep Blue forsakes the well-intentioned extremism of his manga counterpart and becomes a cold, self-concerned sociopath. The leader of the aliens who come to reclaim Earth, Deep Blue creates a human alias named Masaya to stay hidden and oversees his flunkies' attacks. In the climax of the series, Deep Blue overtakes Masaya, and the very first thing he does upon awakening is stoically torture his former identity's Love Interest, Ichigo, with electrical energy, unleashing a burst of energy that obliterates the nearby city. Deep Blue kills anybody who gets in his way, not excepting his own loyal servants, and is interested solely in wiping out all humanity so that he can have Earth to himself. Deep Blue's callous nature ends up turning even his own servants against him, and he shows himself to be thoroughly exempt of any humanizing traits that flesh out the other villains of the show.
  • Crack Pairing: Masaya/Berii.
  • Die for Our Ship:
  • Draco in Leather Pants:
    • Quiche. Many fans seemed to forget that his "OMG TWU WUB" for Ichigo is Stalker with a Crush played dead straight, complete with "I'll kill you if I can't have you" and "I'll kill him just because you like him better than me" moments.
    • Even if Deep Blue is a Complete Monster, fans have even bought him leather pants as well. It may have to do with the manga version apparently intending to help the aliens.
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: Masaya/Ichigo fans are a small minority, despite that being the Official Couple. Ichigo's other harem boys, Ryou and Quiche are much more opular.
  • Fanon Discontinuity: Many fans refuse to acknowledge the existence of the sequel series, A la Mode.
  • Foe Yay:
    • Bu-ling/Taruto is canon and Pai/Retasu semi-canon if you squint.
    • While not as common, there are people who ship Ichigo/Deep Blue.
    • Not to mention Zakuro/Pai. It's still overshadowed by Pai/Retasu, though.
  • Les Yay: Minto and Zakuro, to the point where it probably goes beyond Sub Text.
  • Periphery Demographic: (Mostly) adult male doujinshika.
  • Replacement Scrappy: Berry Shirayuki, the new girl as the star of A la mode, is hated by audiences for taking the spotlight from all the other established cast. The fan reaction to her is parodied with Dr. Alphys in Undertale and Mew Mew Kissy Cutie 2, where the mere thought of not-Berry results in an angry, rambling wall of text about how she's "neither kissy nor cutie".
  • Ron the Death Eater: Masaya. Sure, he may be a Stepford Smiler because he hates all of humanity, at least prior to meeting Ichigo, but he wasn't born evil, although most people who hate him seem to not be aware of- or deliberately ignore- that spoilered part, which happens after the American dub ended, and instead demonize him as a Gary Stu.
  • Sequelitis: To say that A la Mode is not as well received as the original series is an understatement. With unlikable new characters, derailing old characters, and a lazily written plot, many fans don't even acknowledge its existence.
  • Toy Ship: Bu-ling and Tart, which actually becomes canon.
