Akio Fujioka is a genetic scientist who worked on the Galactic Mew project. He commands the Galaxy Mew team and guides them through their missions, along with acting as their mentor and a close friend to the group.
OriginAkio was born and raised in Yokohama, Japan. As a child, he was very carefree and calm, enjoying simple pleasures such as riding his bike and playing with his dog. His mother was kind to him and cared for her son with gentleness. Akio's father, however, was a very rough man who worked very hard and was seldom around. He always reprimanded his son for not being stronger, but luckily, Akio was able to ignore him and go on with life in his own way.
He was never physically able growing up, being very thin and timid, and though Akio never was teased or bullied, he always found himself in the wrong places and times, or in situations that he never meant to enter. As a result, he would always end up in fist fights, and his nose had even been fractured in one incident, resulting in him needing surgery.When Akio was in High School and as he got older, he took an interest in the work of science and medicine, making up his mind to enter the medical field. He had dated several girls and made a few friends, but for the most part, he kept himself busy and isolated with working to reach his goals. As soon as he graduated high school, Akio left his home behind and went abroad to study in an American university. He'd attempted to go for a Doctorate of Medicine so that he could become a Physician, but shortly switched his field to Genetic studies after failing to do so. He went back home to do this, and shortly after receiving his degree years later, the young man received a basic job in a laboratory. Akio did his work well, but he lost all sociability being pent up with his work. Eventually, Akio noticed that strange creatures were beginning to pop up in various parts of the world. People began to panic, and it was clear that these events were threatening to all. Akio decided to create a plan to fight against these creatures, proposing his idea of creating five biological weapons, called Mew Mews, to fight against them. He was given permission to begin, and Akio did his best to work as quickly as possible. Various world leaders came together and decided to build these colonies that could house plenty of people so that they may survive in space, since the monsters were beginning to increase in number and it became unclear whether Akio would finish in time. The colonies were built as quickly as possible, so not everything was perfected or thought out. At the moment, it was purely a last resort of survival. However, it soon became clear that the colonies would be the only way to protect the human race, as the creatures increased in number more and more each day.
Akio was made aware of this, as well as a few select people who would be reserved places on these colonies. He tried his best to complete his research and his Mew project, but when the time came for the ships to board, he had to leave his work behind to rush into the colonies before other civilians could be let aboard. He was broken with the realization that he had failed, but decided to try again from scratch. Akio was granted permission by his colony's captain and placed in a sect to work on his Galactic Mew Project again. It was there that he met a young Danish scientist, Alexander Knudsen, who would ultimately help Akio get off of his feet and learn to be more lively. Four years passed, and the colonies gained new technology and advances in science that helped make life on them more convenient. Akio and Alexander had worked closely together in those four years. and after that time, Akio finally completed the Galactic Mew Project after plenty of pain and having to ask for extension after extension. With the project being finalized, he was ready to test it out. Akio eventually became the commander of the entire operation, keeping watch over the Galaxy Mew team and guiding them.
Akio has always been an generally easygoing young man--thoughtful, kind and always willing to care for his own. Akio has learned to be very tolerant of others and can handle anything from people barking at him to being much too timid around him. He acts as a sort of father to his Galaxy Mew team, always taking great care to keep them safe and healthy. While Akio still gets pent up in his work, often becoming stressed, he has friends around to help him keep his calm, gentle nature. Akio tends to experience bouts of anxiety, especially when it comes to work and the safety of his team.
Relationship with team
Akio respects Niji greatly. With admiration for her strength and determination, he finds that he truly cares for her in a way more so than just as a friend. He enjoys her company, often allowing her to distract him from his work. It is implied that the two are romantically interested.
Akio cares for Hikari in a fatherly manner, much like Niji acts like a mother to her. He takes care of the young Mew and likes to make sure she's safe and sound. He expresses pride in her quite ofen and enjoys the time that he gets to spend with her.
Though Chrysalis can be a handful with her stubborn nature, Akio manages to be patient with her, though not a pushover. He does admire her for being strong and thinking quickly in tricky situations. He considers Chrysalis to be a strong, useful fighter, and knows just how to talk to her in situations where she may shut others out.
Akio treats Hotaru much like Hikari in the fact that he shelters her like a father. He considers her to be quire a handful at times, but understands that she is still a child that has much to learn . However, Akio believes her to be a brave, strong young girl, just as important as any of the other Mews.
Akio enjoys Nexus' company. They work as closely together as Akio had with Alexander. Akio is utterly fascinated by Nexus' world and race, and he will often want to know more about it. He treats Nexus with respect, treating her more like an adult and with consideration for her intelligence. The two get along very well together as close firends.
