Ryusei Kanda is a character from the spin-off manga Tokyo Mew Mew Au Lait, and a main protagonist of the series.
Tokyo Mew Mew Au Lait
Ryusei appears as an acrobatic with a keen sense of smell. Upon saving Anzu and bringing her back to the group, he transforms into his Mew Mew form. With his ability he is able to knock the armor off the White Rhino Chimera Anima, giving Mew Aoi the chance to finish it off. He is the third Mew Mew to join the team.
He appears to be living with and/or helping his grandfather.
Many assume Ryusei to have a confident, "genki" personality based on the excitement and confidence he embodies in his promotional art.
Ryusei has a happy-go-lucky attitude and can be described as a little bit 'ditzy' - he doesn't know the name of the Komodo Dragon and is missing a stroke for the kanji of 'Ryu' on the back of his shirt.
When Ryusei is transformed, he wears a white croptop with a cheongsam collar decorated with yellow claw marks and scale accents. His pants are white to match and covered in golden chains. His hair is given three silver clips on the right side and is done up in a braid. His nails also elongate and are painted black. He also gains a lizard tongue while in Mew form.
- Ryusei is named after the Kanda train station in Tokyo, the 13th stop of the Ginza subway line.
- In Ryusei's promotional art, he asks the viewer to call him, "Ryu-Chan"
