Nowadays not as big of a TMM fan as I was back then but WHOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA THAT KEY VISUAL!!!!
All right let's see what we got here...
First off, elephant (or I guess cat XD) in the room: Mew Ichigo looks HELLA different here. Not only is she a lot more red, but also a lot less pink too. Can't hate on there being a more red magical girl though, main characters in magical girl shows are almost ALWAYS pink so this is a bit of a nice shake-up. Even though Mew Ringo's supposed to be the red Mew Mew, but I guess she's not canon :P
Looks like the new anime will be going with the character redesigns from last year's Tokyo Mew Mew 2020 ReTurn one-shot. Interesting.
Don't know anything about director's past work, looks like they've worked with Junichi Sato a few times with stuff like Aria and Tamayura... again, interesting. Series compostion here....... ooh boy they worked on Umi Monogatari............ I mean, that show was okay, I definitely recommend it, but the writing in that show is probably not one of that series' highlights... oh looks like they also worked on Tamayura. Still need to watch that show. I guess I have a good feeling based on these bits of information that these people might pace this new adaptation a bit more slowly. Maybe that's a good thing. Who knows. At least there's an older-style magical girl show after so many years of seinen titles in the genre. 2022 looks somewhat promising already. I just hope Mia Ikumi works on new manga again, her art style and character designs are great but this is pretty much the only thing she's known for lol.
Still hoping that A La Mode gets adapted this time. Mew Berry is probably my favorite Mew Mew.

Can't wait, I'm used to Ichigo's hair being pink, but this is a nice take.
I don't think I've known these two studios to work on a lot of big name things, but since there are two of them, and they've had/have so much time, I have no doubt that it'll be a good episode count with good or decent animation

are producers run out of material to adapt that they keep rebooting old stuff?????????
No, there are plenty of series to adapt, but remakes are all the rage these days, and of course they prove to be extremely profitable, not to mention in demand since a lot of these readaptations are of series that were filler fests, didn't finish, or made up their own ending
