The second key visual shows us the smiling faces of Retasu Midorikawa, Minto Aizawa, Ichigo Momomiya, Purin Fong and Zakuro Fujiwara at Café Mew Mew. Their lacy pastel maid dresses are standard attire for workdays at the café. Their waitress uniforms are nearly identical to their looks in the original series, from the heart-shaped aprons to the chunky black boots.
The voice actresses behind the upcoming anime also modeled similar uniforms in real life.
