I wanted to see more for this series and didn’t.

I have loved Tokyo Mew Mew since I was little and was so excited about getting the chance to own the manga for my collection. The problem I found soon after receiving it and reading it, was that KC (Kodansha) didn’t really do the series what it deserved. Some of the images inside the manga were hard to read and no color pages?! I mean this is well loved series and it wasn’t given much in ways to show it off. I wish they could haven taken a bit more time with it and tried just a little harder like VIZ did for Loveless 😿

Annoying translation, though a solid manga itself

Magical girl isn't really my go-to, but after a turn of events I found myself buying the entire series of Tokyo Mewmew. Yes, it's cheesy and predictable but it's charming (though some moments are seriously too sugary). The art is standard. Again, not my style but I can't bash it for what it is; it's not the best but not the worst at all either. I'd say slightly above average.

The translation, however is not charming. For some reason they only kept a couple of character's names in Japanese (Ichigo and Zakuro). But they translate some which makes for an awkward transition. It's hard to take the character's seriously when they are screaming "Lettuce" (though they kept Ichigo *strawberry* and Zakuro *pomegranate* which would have been just as awkward). The names of Chimera Anima/Animal change between volumes. This makes the story harder to take seriously. Some text placement is awkward, overall it just distracts from the manga itself; it's accurate but awkward.

Excellent

Compared to the original Tokyo Pop version, this Kodansha version blows tokyopop out of the water! The images were so hard to see in Tokyo pop's version but Kodansha fixes this drastically. Important details were erased when Tokyopop was putting in english text, however Kodansha's version fixes up all the artwork after translating the text so that no important details are missed. I recommend this version simply for that reason alone.
