The pair of artists created the first edition of the work on Nakayoshi from 2000 to 2003 for a total of 7 volumes. In Italy, the work is available for purchase in its entirety for Play Press. Ikumi also made from 2003 to 2004 a sequel to the manga in question entitled Tokyo Mew Mew a la Mode and, again, a mini-series in December 2019 entitled Tokyo Mew Mew 2020 Re-Turn.

The series manga inspired a 52-episode animated series and aired from 2002 to 2003 with the production of Studio Pierrot (Naruto). In Italy, the rights were acquired by Mediaset which broadcast the anime on Italia 1 in 2004. The Italian abbreviation was interpreted by Cristina D'Avena:

On her first date with the cutest boy in school, Ichigo is exposed to a mysterious ray that intertwines her DNA with that of the endangered wild cat, Iriomote. She soon discovers that she has developed superhuman abilities and increased agility. Her new powers are put to the test accompanied by a team of four other girls, each with special abilities. Together, they must now protect Earth from an alien threat known as Deep Blue.
