Thirteen-year-old Ichigo Momomiya is at an endangered animal exhibit with her crush Masaya Aoyama when she is hit by a beam of light and sees a cat entering her body. She begins to demonstrate cat-like behavior the following day. A giant monster attacks Masaya and forces Ichigo to transform into a pink magical girl with cat ears and a tail.

A boy named Ryou Shirogane explains that the monster she fought was a Chimera Anima—alien parasites that infect animals and turn them into giant monsters. Ryou and Keiichiro Akasaka, the owner of a pink cafe called Cafe Mew Mew, planned to take the DNA of five Red Data Animals and use them as biological weapons by injecting them into Chimera Anima—an experiment they called the Mew Project. But due to an earthquake the day before, the DNA was accidentally shot into Ichigo and four other girls that she met outside the museum instead!

Now a "biological weapon," Ichigo must fight against the aliens and find her potential teammates—all while keeping her feline identity a secret from Masaya.

She is with those 4 girls she doesn't know, and then BOOM ! She doesn't know what's happening, but she remembers a cat : ) Cool isn't it ? :D She became Mew Mew and got to save the world with help from Ryou, who's pretty hot. She has to find another ...

I believe this was alot of girls first mangas,(And maybe some boys first mangas), including mine(Unless you count abunch I never finished that I only read afew volumes of).

Tokyo Mew Mew is a mix between romance, adventure, comedy, and the ever so popular neko characters.
But instead of all nekos, they added other animals too. Birds, fish(I think?), wolves and monkeys.

I'm glad that the artist decided to use their own style, even if it's only slightly different from the standard shoujo style. It bothers me that so many shoujo have the same style. Without the same artist, I mean.

The characters were nice, but ...
