Berry Berry Mew Mew (베리베리 뮤우뮤우, Beriberi myuumyuu) is the name of the Korean Tokyo Mew Mew dub. In this dub, the show takes place in Seoul, South Korea, thus changing some of the city landmarks (ex: Tokyo Tower being changed to it's South Korean equivilant, Namsan Tower). Despite it being dubbed, localized, and edited for a younger audience, most of the dialogue stays true to the original Japanese version.
Berry Berry Mew Mew was aired on the SBS channel in South Korea.
The opening and ending songs are nearly identical to the original Japanese in terms of translation but the music instrumentals were redone, giving it a remixed sound. Insert songs (ex: episode 16 and 26) were replaced with songs made by the dubbing studio or even openings from other Korean dubbed anime (ex: In episode 26 "Glider" was replaced with the Korean dubbed opening of Fushigi Yuugi).
Home Video Release
All 52 episodes of Berry Berry Mew Mew aired on the SBS channel in South Korea. Later it was relased on VHS(26 volumes with 2 episodes on each tape) by SCM. VOD are also available on the SBS website(you have to be a citizen to watch). It was never given a DVD release.
Cuts and Edits
Since the Korean dub was made with a younger demographic in mind, there were some minor cuts and edits done to the show but none bad enough to actually change any plot to the story.
In some scenes, Kisshyu's pants are raised up to keep his stomach lines from showing and the blood on him was removed in episode 39. All close up, onscreen human kissing was cut out but it was still said by the characters that Kisshyu stole Berry's first kiss and that she has to get kissed to turn into a cat and back, so kissing wasn't totally taken away from the show. The Chimera Anima in episode 51 was also edited slightly to keep its breast lines from showing. Despite that, all the death and dark tones of the 2nd half of the series were kept in.
