This is the first volume of the manga behind the hit series Tokyo Mew Mew, which is a Japaneses anime. The english adapted anime, which is called Mew Mew Power, only made it halfway throught the series, so for American fans the manga is the best way to go, unless you want to watch the Japanese anime with english subtitles which can be found on YouTube. The Tokyo Mew Mew series has 7 volumes and the second season has 2 volumes.
