How Much of the Tokyo Mew Mew Manga Did the New Reboot Cover?
The Tokyo Mew Mew New reboot covers four volumes of the Tokyo Mew Mew manga. However, it is widely assumed that the second season of the reboot will cover the remainder of the Tokyo Mew Mew manga.
While Pierrot's original anime adaptation was 52 episodes long, the first season of the Tokyo Mew Mew New reboot is only 12 episodes.
The pacing of the anime resulted in mixed reviews from fans. Despite this, Tokyo Mew Mew New breathed new life into the original series by putting its own whimsical spin on the magical girl premise.
Understandably, the new reboot began as a project to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Tokyo Mew Mew manga.
Because it was well-received by genre fans, a second season has been announced for April 2023.
