Shojo & Tell: A Manga Podcast S1:E66
Tokyo Mew Mew (with Mercedez Clewis)
Covers all of TOKYO MEW MEW and TOKYO MEW MEW A LA MODE by Reiko Yoshida and Mia Ikumi.
In the early 2000s, this series about a team of five young girls infused with the DNA of rare animals fighting aliens bent on reclaiming the Earth became a phenomenon. TOKYO MEW MEW is supposed to get a new anime adaptation in the year 2021, so we decided to read the original magical girl series and its sequel. MEW MEW superfan Mercedez Clewis expounds on why the series left such a lasting impact on her and the magical girl genre in general.
Mercedez and Shojo & Tell host Ashley also discuss their favorite Mews, what is and isn’t a magical girl series, how the aliens were kinda right though, how they prefer to eat strawberries, and so much more in this jam-packed episode.
