The leader of the Mew Mews in Tokyo Mew Mew, Ichigo Momomiya, has gone to England to study endangered species with her boyfriend Masaya Aoyama. While she's gone, a group of teen aged humans take control of the remaining Chimera Anima, which cause trouble for the other Mew Mews, Mint Aizawa, Lettuce Midorikawa, Pudding Fong and Zakuro Fujiwara, and use the monsters to try and finish what the previous antagonists, the Aliens, did not complete; they want to conquer the world and create an ideal community or society. Under the name of Saint Rose Crusaders, they pose as teachers at a private, all-girls school that Berry Shirayuki, this series' main heroine, attends.
Berry goes to Café Mew Mew, the Mew Mew's workplace and secret headquarters, to look at the food displays, but is startled when she bumps into Ryou Shirogane and walks into a machine. The machine fuses her D.N.A with not one, but two red data animals: The Andean Mountain Cat, and the Amami Rabbit. She passes out after this and, when she wakes up, she is given R2003, also known as Ucha, by Ryou. Berry Shirayuki becomes the sixth Mew Mew and temporarily takes Ichigo's place as the leader. As one of the strongest Mew Mews, Berry is targeted by two of the Crusaders, who attack her at school. Ichigo returns to provide assistance during this battle. For their final attack, two Crusaders hypnotize the citizens of Tokyo and set them against the Mew Mews. Berry and her childhood friend Tasuku Meguro use their new-found feelings of love to reverse the hypnosis and cause a change of heart in the Crusaders.
At the end of the series, Berry and Tasuku are still a couple, the "lovebirds” of the café, work side-by-side as the cafe's new door-to-door delivery service and celebrate being in love.
