Moe Yanagida is one of the supporting characters in the manga and anime series Tokyo Mew Mew. Her name means "sprouting" (Moe), "Willow" (Yanagi), "Rice Field" (Da).


Moe is one of Ichigo's friends and also her classmate, however, she is unaware of the Mew Mews. One of her other friends, Miwa Honjo, is also unaware of the Mew Mews. They are seen together, most of the time, and they are in almost every episode of the anime. In episode 23 of the anime, Ryou Shirogane saved Moe from some thugs, so she developed a crush on him. Moe and Miwa, who has a crush on Keiichiro Akasaka, made gifts for their crushes, as suggested by Ichigo, to win their hearts. They put a lot of effort into making the gifts but the boys rejected them, resulting in Moe and Miwa being upset.

Quiche later stole Moe and Miwa's spirits and used them to create two Chimera Lovebirds. However, Ichigo defeated them, and, luckily for Moe and Miwa, Keiichiro and Ryou revealed that they actually liked their gifts. Still in love with the two boys, Moe and Miwa vowed to open a fan club for Ryou and Keiichiro.

Appearance and Personality

Moe has curly blond hair and light skin. She is the same height as Ichigo and she has red eyes. Like her friend Miwa, Moe likes to look on the bright side of things. She is a loyal friend to Ichigo and she cheers her on and gives her advice about Masaya. Moe is supportive of Ichigo and Masaya's relationship and she and Miwa go with Ichigo to Masaya's kendo competitions. However, in Mew Mew Power, Moe is shown to be quite a mean girl to Ichigo. Moe is late to school, like Ichigo, and told her that she always sleeps through her lessons. One time, she and Miwa heard Ichigo yell in her sleep that she is a mew mew, which nearly blew her cover, but luckily, Moe and Miwa are still unaware of Ichigo's powers.
