In the latest 10th episode of “TOKYO MEW MEW NEW Prologue!” streamed on YouTube last night, the five main voice actresses of the upcoming all-new anime Tokyo Mew Mew New were finally announced. The open audition for the role of the protagonist Ichigo Momomiya had been held since April 2020 and you can watch its selection process in the YouTube program.
