Tokyo Mew Mew by Lentyrn Tokyo Mew Mew by Lentyrn
So I was reading my Tokyo Mew Mews about a month ago for the first time in . . . I dunno, five years? It was so nostalgic I had to draw the Mews! TMM was the first manga I bought and I was a total fangirl back in the day.

---BEFORE YOU START POINTING OUT THEIR OUTFITS--- I know these are not what they wear in the manga. While I was in my happy stupor rereading mangas of my n00b days, I couldn't help but think 'ya know, if I drew Tokyo Mew Mew' . . .
So I did. If I drew Tokyo Mew Mew, this is what they would look like, and this is what outfits they would wear. At the same time I did try to be reminiscent of their true costumes.

Actually, the above is a slight lie. If I drew Tokyo Mew Mew, there would be no Lettuce. I think she's a boring character. Also, there would be a whole lot more backstory in my TMM. The story would also probably revolve around Mint and Kish (not as a couple!)

But mostly no Lettuce.

Tokyo Mew Mew belongs to Mia Ikumi (and Tokyopop)

but i would probably do lettuce. its unfortunate that you dont like her character/didnt like it back when you drew this (i know its been quite a while!) because i think her character is really quite interesting and rather complex (mildly psychotic, anyone????)
actually im really sorta bummed they never addressed lettuce's obvious mental problems ever again. like, ok. just gonna ignore her entire first character arc cause u dont wanna deal with it. i see how it is

Beautiful! The costumes are very original, and the style is great! I especially love Mint's buns! They actually look prettier that way. The picture gives me a...French feeling for some reason. XD

Thanks. I love redrawing their costumes. It's way fun! I need to do an updated version of these costumes.

And French? Ha ha! That's kind of funny. Maybe it's all the funky lace.

Tokyo Mew Mew had the potential to have a better fleshed out storyline with all the characters, I just think Mia Ikumi got a little lazy (I mean look at the terrible sequel she made).

Except for Ichigo and her love interests the characters didn't have to go on as far as back stories were concerned. I honestly liked Lettuce and if I could have done Tokyo Mew Mew I would have done better with the character. The character I wasn't too fond of was Zakuro. She was just plain boring to me! I defiantly would have changed her or would like to know why she was such a mono-toned ice queen... Mint was defiantly my favorite character because of her spunky attitude not to mention I liked how much she bugged poor Ichigo :giggle: Pudding damn near drove me crazy because hyper characters like that just aren't my thing. She's cute but I'd take her over Zakuro any day.

And as much as they read into Kisshu I think they could have done more with him as well as the aliens. It seemed like every time we heard about him it was his bi-polar attitude on how he felt about Ichigo which got a little annoying with me. (I don't hate IchigoXKisshu but I just don't understand why %80 of the TMM fandom likes the pairing because unless Kisshu stopped being psycho Ichigo probably wouldn't go for him besides: hey he's kind of cute and exotic!)

I don't mind Ichigo as the main character personally, but besides her 'spazziness' I think she's just your typical middle/junior school girl. I like your idea of having Mint or Kisshu as your main characters (they looks nice as a pairing art wise but not a big fan of them together either but I do have pairings on my list lol)

The only real character that they really had a good back story for that I liked was Masaya once they revealed he was an alien (can't remember how to spell their race lol).

Other characters I would have looked into would have been Keiichiro or Pai since they were a little ignored as well. They did go a little into Keiichiro's but they could have done better.

I think with a good writer(s) and a good artist(s) a good fan-revising of Tokyo Mew Mew I think would be done a lot better as well as be interesting~

And my GOD I ranted way too much here! I think I'll leave you with this and see what you have to say~ It was nice to see your artwork here. What you did to the costumes or more interesting as well as fits some of them better (quick note: I don't see Lettuce who is the shy girl wearing almost a leotard but that's just me)

By the time I got to Lettuce and Zakuro I was kind of sick of drawing, so their costumes suck. And Lettuce does wear an almost leotard, in case you've forgotten, lol.

Lettuce is much more interesting in the anime. In fact she has a lot of little plot arcs in the anime. XD

This is beautiful :) I haven't actually been into TMM for what feels like a while now...odd since I was absolutely obsessed with it maybe just a year ago...but I've started reading Harry Potter fanfiction and the quality of a bad fanfic over there is usually better than most of the stuff I find in the TMM section and overall I'm into much darker or interesting stuff like Durarara, Bokurano, Narutaru...though I haven't watched anime in a while, either...the last one I watched was Mai HIME...or maybe Read or Die...eh. Rambling. So...anyways. I have the manga, but I mostly paid attention to the anime since I made AMVs, I think. And also I got into TMM by Mew Mew Power so I kinda already knew how everything was going to end because of spoilers being discussed that had been changed in the dub and all that. Minto was my favorite character. I used to be a MintoKisshu fan (mostly because they're my favorite characters, I suppose...I think contrast between them would make them more interesting than Ichigo and Kisshu, anyways) and I think if you had the series revolve around them than most people would pair them up, anyways. I think they'd certainly be more interesting main characters than the one provided, though. I love the outfits, the coloring, the hair... Purin is probably my favorite here...she's just so shiny :) I think TMM would be way better if the story gave more history to...anything. The aliens, Aoyama, Deep Blue, how the Mews came to be... You don't even know if any of the aliens have last names or how old they are...it's ridiculous. It would also be more interesting if it were darker, in my opinion. It's really the perfect opportunity for the fans to express their creativity and make up all that stuff, though...and some fan fiction I've come across does a decent job of making TMM out to be more complex or semi interesting...but most of it is just girls making up Mary Sue OCs to pair with Kish or Ryou or people have Aoyama run over by a semi or cheating so Kish or Ryou can comfort her...and the decent fics don't usually get finished. Sorry for rambling on about everything but your lovely picture. I love the background, the shining and posing...overall, I think you have a very unique look when it comes to the anime style and I'd like to see more anime art that manages that rather than the generic anime style I see so often. I apologize for my very unintelligible/self-centered comment

i agree, lettuce was a bit more pointless. i think she'd still be in there if i re-wrote it, but she'd be more of a side-character than a main character. not to mention, zakuro would have much more of a back-story than she did... i think Mia Ikumi basically created all these characters but only cared about ichigo & masaya... and it shows in the way she wrote it... nobody else had IMPORTANT back-stories.
