started as a Nakayoshi artist's desire to do a series with a Cat Girl, and ended up as a sweet tale of choosing the right guy, protecting the environment, and throwing some sparkly Stock Footage around to solve the world's problems.
Ichigo Momomiya's only care in the world is getting kendo idol Masaya Aoyama to notice her.
Not only that, but she can use a Transformation Trinket to transform into a magical catgirl and defeat the parasitic aliens that are transforming normal animals into monstrous Chimera Anima.
There is also a manga-only sequel written by the head illustrator after the head writer left.
At first, she thought Masaya was oblivious to her feelings, but he later reveals that he shares her feelings and they begin dating.
Masaya is the only person outside the Mew Project to know Mew Ichigo's real identity, but initially pretends otherwise as he knows Ichigo does not want him to know.
He was supportive of it when she finally told him in episode 38, and said he would help her hide it.
Towards the end of the series, Masaya reveals that as an orphan, he began acting like a "perfect child" to be adopted.
