Ill-Literature: Environmentally Friendly . . . “Tokyo Mew Mew”

Tokyo Mew Mew

By Mia Ikumi and Reiko Yoshida

So, a few months ago, one of my friends suggested to me that I read one of her childhood favorites, “Tokyo Mew Mew,” by Mia Ikumi and Reiko Yoshida. I was at first a little hesitant about reading it though because the story is made for a middle school audience and it seemed a little silly as well. But when I started to read the story, I realized that it is actually a sweet story.

“Tokyo Mew Mew,” provides morals based on the affects we place upon our surroundings. The story starts out when a group of young guys try to find a way to fight aliens and prevent them from destroying the human race. (The aliens are angry at humans for destroying the environment.) By accident, the guys inject animal DNA into a girl named, Ichigo, allowing her to transform into a cat-girl. Her duty is to find the other girls affected and then work together to stop the aliens.

The story is a little random and silly, but I think it has a good moral. I also think it is a good way to remember childhood days whenever things were much simpler.  Another interesting part to the books were that the authors mentioned some endangered species, that aren’t often spoken of, and gives us information on them.
