Tokyo Mew Mew is a Japanese shōjo manga series written by Reiko Yoshida
and illustrated by Mia Ikumi. It was originally serialized in Nakayoshi
from September 2000 to February 2003, and later published in seven
tankōbon volumes by Kodansha from February 2001 to April 2003. It
focuses on five girls infused with the DNA of rare animals that gives
them special powers and allows them to transform into "Mew Mews". Led
by Ichigo Momomiya, the girls protect the earth from aliens who wish to
"reclaim" it. The series was quickly adapted into a fifty-two episode
anime series by Studio Pierrot. It debuted in Japan on April 6, 2002,
on both TV Aichi and TV Tokyo; the final episode aired on March 29,
2003. A two-volume sequel to the manga, Tokyo Mew Mew a la Mode, was
serialized in Nakayoshi from April 2003 to February 2004. The sequel
introduces a new Mew Mew, Berry Shirayuki, who becomes the temporary
leader of the Mew Mews whilst Ichigo is on a trip to England. Two video
games were also created for the series.

Wikiquote quote of the day:
All men live not by the thought they spend on their own welfare, but
because love exists in man.
I knew before that God gave life to men and desires that they should
live; now I understood more than that.
I understood that God does not wish men to live apart, and therefore
he does not reveal to them what each one needs for himself; but he
wishes them to live united, and therefore reveals to each of them what
is necessary for all.
I have now understood that though it seems to men that they live by
care for themselves, in truth it is love alone by which they live. He
who has love, is in God, and God is in him, for God is love.
