Retasu was created on the 10th December 2021. It serves as my personal website and a way for me to channel my nostalgia for anime graphics resource and fan sites from the early 2000s.



I named this site after 緑川れたす (Midorikawa Retasu) who is my favourite female character of all time. She is from the series Tokyo Mew Mew, created by Mia Ikumi & Reiko Yoshida.

She's one 1/5th of the team Tokyo Mew Mew, a group of magical girls infused with the DNA of endangered species who have sworn to protect the planet earth from the alien race and anything that threatens its destruction. Retasu is infused with the DNA of a Finless Porpoise.


Despite being on the receiving end of severe emotional and physical bullying at the beginning of the series, Retasu remained such an understanding and kind soul who saw the best in everyone, even those who hurt her. Retasu was the blueprint for me in terms of what characters move me the most in fiction: empathetic, tender-hearted individuals who have been through a lot but still manage to remain joyful and optimistic. For that, Retasu will always be beloved to me.


As most of my HTML/CSS knowledge is from what I learned as a kid in the early 2000s things may not be 100% responsive. I'm currently going through Angela Yu's Complete 2023 Web Development Bootcamp and The Odin Project to bring me up to date. Please bear with me as I'm still learning! I hope to revamp retasu to be completely responsive one day.

Until then, please keep in mind of the following...

  • Site is optimized for PCs and looks best on a 2560 × 1600 screen.
  • Should look fine on tablet and mobile devices but you will probably have to scroll a lot.
