A new website has popped up with a teaser image and countdown to announce an upcoming Tokyo Mew Mew project. The countdown will end on April 2nd, so we have a little over a month to ponder the possibilities!
Since the original manga and its anime adaption in the early 2000’s, there have been some recent manga projects, including an all male team version called Tokyo Mew Mew Ore and a sequel to the original called Tokyo Mew Mew 2020 Re-Turn. My speculation would be the latter being green lit for a new anime project.
However it’s not unusual for older anime franchises to be completely rebooted, as we’ve seen with series like Sailor Moon Crystal and Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood, which give more faithful to the manga story adaptions than their earlier counterparts.
