Overview

THE MEW MEWS ARE BACK!

Berry Shirayuki is a completely normal high school girl—until she's hit by the Mew Mew beam, giving her the powers of both the Amami Black Rabbit and the Andean Mountain Cat! Now Berry has super-hearing, super-speed, and can leap (small) builings in a single bound. But her new super powers come at a price—with their leader Ichigo studying abroad in England, the Mew Mews need Berry's help fighting the remaining chimera terrorizing Tokyo. As if that wasn't bad enough, there's a new gang in town, the Saint Rose Crusaders. They've made it their mission to destroy the Mew Mews, and they're starting with Berry! 

This omnibus edition collects Tokyo Mew Mew à la Mode volumes 1 & 2!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The cuteness doesn't stop with the Mew Mew gang, a team of girl heroes who have each been injected with animal genes and endowed with supernatural powers. Their mission is to fight aliens who use animals to attack Earth. A la Mode continues the popular series Tokyo Mew Mew, which inspired the equally admired cartoon. This story introduces a new member, Berry Shirayuki, whose French grandfather explains the title. She's just getting used to her new school when she is mistakenly injected with the genes of an Amami black rabbit and an Andes mountain cat. Suddenly she finds herself fighting dragons and the evil Saint Rose Crusaders, who like to dine on bunny blood. Berry has to adjust to her new Mew Mew powers: super hearing, the ability to leap much higher than expected and a strange desire to snack on carrots. Ikumi knows how to mix action sequences, romantic interludes and schoolgirl anxieties to maximum effect. Darker elements combine with sugary ones for a fun, energetic and ultimately irresistible read. The adorable girls are well-drawn by Yoshida, who adds an appendix of commentary on the process of manga creation. (July) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
KLIATT
When Berry Shirayuki, age 12, follows a cute guy into the mysterious cafe, she has no idea that she's about to become the newest Mew Mew. Mew Mews, in case you forgot, are young girls imbued with the genes of animals. They use their powers to protect the Earth from various threats. In this volume the villains are the Saint Rose Crusaders, a group of poseurs who like to dress up in Victorian-era ballroom outfits. Berry is the only Mew Mew to have two animal genes in her, rabbit and mountain cat, which explains the bunny ears and cat tail, and also her craving for carrots. Tokyo Mew Mew a la Mode is aimed at young girls; the action scenes are tame, and this manga places a lot of emphasis on Berry's budding friendship with her childhood pal, Tasuku, and her relationship with the five other Mew Mews. I must confess that I don't understand the nature of the Mew Mews' powers, which have cute names like Ribbon Mint Echo, Pudding Ring Inferno, and Ribbon Loveberry Check, but I don't think it really matters. Please note that when Berry gets her powers, there is a scene where she is naked. The author draws her like a doll (no genitals or nipples), but purchasing librarians should be aware of this fact. Recommended for libraries with manga collections aimed at younger readers. KLIATT Codes: J—Recommended for junior high school students. 2005, Tokyopop, l97p. illus., Ages 12 to 15.
