Tokyo Mew Mew Theme Covers On Piano And Bass

These videos are sweet! I love to find people out there who do Tokyo Mew Mew song covers!!! The first song played on the piano is My Sweet Heart. (AKA Tokyo Mew Mew theme.)
And the video below shows a base cover of the same song. It's harder to hear, but still awesome. So enjoy, nya! ^-^

For some reason the bass video wasn't working when I posted it, so here's a link to the video instead. ;) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2DFaCuqhoY

4Kids Dub...Would you take this chance?

These questions have been pondering my mind lately about the 4Kids dub Mew Mew Power...Most Tokyo Mew Mew fans hate what 4 Kids did to the show. And I have to say, I can't blame them. But others liked Mew Mew Power for what it was. Sure, it was no Tokyo Mew Mew, but it was a decent cartoon. (That's what got me into watching TMM anyway.) But what about if you wanted to get your friend into Tokyo Mew Mew?
Let's say your friend has no idea anime even exists. You want to get them into it and decide to start them off by bringing them into the world of Mew Mew. But which version would you start them off with; Tokyo Mew Mew or Mew Mew Power. The answer may seem obvious to some, but what if your friend doesn't like to read subtitles? Or maybe they'd want to watch the show in English first and see how they like it?  Well, here's my opinion:

Start your friend off with Tokyo Mew Mew if...
-They already know what anime is and they watch it a lot.
-They hate dubs and prefer subs.
-They've aready seen what 4 Kids does to it's shows.

Start your friend off on Mew Mew Power if...
-They don't like to read subs, or watch cartoons in different languages
-You want them to get a feel for what anime looks like
-Your friend insists they watch it in English first to see if they like it.

Also, lets not forget that 4 Kids did not dub the whole series, so even if your friend really enjoyed the English dub, they would have to convert to finish the anime. And also, if you trully want to get your friend into anime, get them used to the Japanese voices with English subs. So..

What would you do? Watch Tokyo Mew Mew with English subs with your friend or go for the shorter version of TMM (Mew Mew Power) to try and get them hooked?

Will Tokyo Mew Mew Ever Make A Comeback?

 Hey guys! So here we are: One of my very raer discussion posts! It's to try to help bring this blog back to life, so I hope at least one person reads and comments on this!

Tokyo Mew Mew: Will it ever come back to television? Would it thrive if it were to ever be aired again?

Let's look at the facts:
-Tokyo Mew Mew is an older anime. (It's tenth anniversary already passed.)
-It wasn't as popular as some of the other big animes. (Sailor Moon anyone?)
-However, it did get national attenton, getting dubbed in many different languages.
-It aired in America under Mew Mew Power, making it somewhat known here in the US.
-Many fans continue to promote and support it today. (My site, Hika Yagami's sites, etc.)
-Sequals and extras were made after the main story line, including Tokyo Mew Mew A La Mode, and some video games.
-Berry and Ringo were additional Mew Mews that never made it to television, but were known in the mangas and video games.
- No one has picked up a licence on it yet for it to continue to air here in the US.

Do you guys remember the post I had a little over a year ago, having to do with picking out the next network to air Tokyo Mew Mew? Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network stood out as being the two networks most likely to air it. But is that really the case? What's your opinion?

In my opinion, there is still a small chance Tokyo Mew Mew could come back and re-air here in the US. But we do have that Sailor Moon rival...

After Sailor Moon's 20th anniversary passed, it was announced that something similar to Sailor Moon (using some of the original VA's) would air world wide, starting in Japan this summer. I was kind of hoping something like that would hppen with Tokyo Mew Mew, but sadly, it did not. (Hey we still have the 15th and 20th anniversary to hope for, right?)

What do you guys think? Could Tokyo Mew Mew ever come back to television?
