- Mythical Mew Mew

Ichijiku Aitani (藍谷 いちじく) is one of the main heroines of Mythical Mew Mew. Her Mew form is Mew Fig.

Appearance

Ichijiku

Ichijiku is a fair skinned girl with thigh length mauve hair and cornflower blue eyes. Her casual clothes are rather feminine, usually consisting of skirts or dresses. Her school uniform is a pale lavender sweater over a white shirt with a red bow and a red plaid skirt.

Her café uniform is a knee length violet dress with a white heart-shaped apron with pale lavender frills around the heart and pale lavender ribbons. Her white socks reach her upper shins with frills at the top, a violet bow is attached to each sock, her shoes are black with a violet heart on the tongue and violet laces. Lastly, she wears a lace headband.

Mew Fig

When transformed, Ichijiku's hair and eyes turn violet, and her hair is held in long pigtails with white bows. Her outfit is a violet, thigh length dress that curves towards her legs at the end. Her shoes are violet flats, and her violet gloves reach her elbows.

She also has violet garters on both arms, her left thigh, and a choker. The tops and bottoms of her garters and chokers are lined with white lace. Her Mew Mark, a ring with a diamond in the middle, is on her left thigh, below her garter.

Personality

Despite being the oldest of the team, Ichijiku is far from responsible. She spends most of her time sleeping or reading comics. She wants to become a famous comic artist but is unable to finish any of her drawings.

Abilities

Transformation

Ichijiku’s transformation begins with her kissing her pendant and declaring her metamorphosis. The next scene shows Ichijiku with her DNA morphing in the background. A streak of light hits her body, forming her dress and putting her hair in pigtails, rings of light glide up her arms and legs, making her gloves, shoes, and garters dissolve onto her body. The light then forms her choker and pendant.

Weapon and Attack

Ichijiku's weapon is the Fig Ribbon, a white ribbon whip with a violet handle and a dark purple jewel-like knob on the bottom. On the upper end of the handle is a golden bow with a pink heart in the middle.

Her attack is Ribbon Fig Shine, in which her ribbon begins to shine and spiral around her body, she then cracks the whip, sending a lash of energy towards her opponent.

Kyoho Aitani
