Pic related.

I started watching all the Precure a few months ago, at an average rate of 2 episodes a day with small breaks here and there. I'm almost finished with Fresh now. It's good shit. Almost as good as Pripara.

Pretty excited for Heartcatch. Everyone and their mom says that's the best Precure ever, and from the very little I've seen in gifs/webms, I am inclined to believe them. Will it manage to overtake Splash Star as best Precure?

You'd think Precure would have a good chance by debuting on actual television. Especially since there's shows like Miraculous Ladybug which get quite the amount of success.


 No.715052

Finished up Fresh. A bit behind schedule, but ah well, you can't win them all. I really hate to say it, because I enjoyed watching it the entire way through, but it was actually pretty shit. Every aspect of it was simply inferior to all previous Precure. The writing, the animation, the fighting, the music, every single thing.

In particular, I hated that the Precure, with the exception of a few minutes in one or two episodes, never actually fought with the villains or even debated them until the very end. This was the first season (and hopefully the last) in which they only ever fought with the monster of the week. It destroyed any chance of the villains having any sort of believable and properly-paced development through interaction with the Cures as they were too busy beating up Nakewameke and shit. They did try, right at the end before they suddenly got redeemed, but it was precisely that, sudden. There simply wasn't enough build-up to it. It's a damn shame, since Westar was fucking cool and deserved more than being the comedy relief. Soular also needed way more screetime. The ratio of episodes featuring Westar as the villain, as opposed to Soular, was way skewed.

There was also a distinct lack of school. You could count the number of times that any of the Precure's were at school on one hand, and they sure as shit didn't devote many minutes of screentime to those few scenes either. School life, and classmates, are a very important part of any good Precure. Fresh bombed the fuck out there by spending too much time in random filler locations, at the park dancing, or hanging out at Kaoru's doughnut cafe.

The Cures themselves weren't much to write home about either. Since they were all good friends beforehand, there was almost no source of contention, and thus authenticity, to a good majority of their behavior. They simply got along too well; no bickering, no major arguments. Nothing. Even on an individual level, they barely had anything going for them. Miki/Berry was a haughty fashionista bro-con, but then those traits were either dropped or severely reduced. Buki/Pine was extremely shy, hated ferrets, and timidly went with the flow. By the 10th episode all of that was gone. Love/Peach was MC-tier. Everything Eas was good though. Her arc, personality, and faults all shined brilliantly the entire way through. Eas a best.

All in all, I can't shake the feeling that Fresh, the entirety of it, was just filler. Something to buffer you between the endurance run that was Precure 5, and the (apparently) best Precure imaginable, Heartcatch. Maybe my opinion will change as I give it some time to soak it all in, but I doubt it. Fresh is just lame. Enjoyable, but lame. Also had what I am convinced is the shittiest ending in all Precure history.

Onward to Heartcatch.

It's good. It's a bit uncommon to hear her doing a cutesy girly role instead of a mature woman with a deeper voice, so it's quite refreshing. I almost didn't recognize it was her and had to double check during the ED. As it's motherfucking Nana, I'll have to snag the character songs. I wish there was a megatorrent with all character songs from all Precure neatly thrown in, but to my knowledge no such thing exists.

Erika/Marine though man. I'm not even out of the single digit episodes yet, and she's quickly rocketing up to the top of my list of Precure. Her scratchy voice is just love, and she's prime bully-bait. It's almost scary how quickly I'm falling for her. Such a thing.

Didn't think they'd reveal Cure Moonlights real identity so quickly. It was blatantly obvious from the first second Yuri showed up, but usually a reveal like this is strung along a bit more for our heroes. I guess they're reserving that for Mysterious Ikemen X. I'm putting money on him being the Seitokaichou's older brother. The one crippled in a wheel-chair, but who mysteriously knew sick martial arts in the past before he caught GRID or something. It's gotta be him for sure.

Heartcatch is dope. Tethering the monster of the week Desertrarian to the depressive state and hidden thoughts of a given individual in their community, instead of solely an object, was one of the greatest decisions ever made. It allowed them to give rudimentary development to an asston of NPC-types, fleshing out the town/setting, and in so doing it not only brought back school-life but it also made the battles good despite not being against the named Generals. This method is a million times more emotionally compelling then what Fresh offered, for example, though still not as good as letting them beat up on them directly. I'm starting to suspect it'll be a rare thing for Precure to hit people from here on.

Whoopsie. I also made the OP as well, and I'm only a few episodes away from seeing and making ED2. I've heard it's quite a doozy. Pretty excited.

I don't want to just instantly declare it since I've got just a little over half of the show to go, but I know deep down that Heartcatch is the pinnacle of Precure thus far (even better than Splash Star) and the remaining air time will not sway me. Erika is the best Precure of all time. Tsubomi is acceptable. The plot moves along at just the right pacing. The show isn't bogged down by incredibly annoying babby-tier mascots like Chiffon or Porun. The Cures don't get shitty new powerups every other episode which dominate all subsequent fights with stock animation. There is a humongous amount of supporting cast, each with at least a minimal amount of development. The villains, while fairly one-note, are entertaining and have some element of depth that I have not seen yet. I could go on and on slurping its dick, but suffice to say Heartcatch is best. Every element meshes incredibly well, slotting right along into its proper position without disrupting any of the others to make a beautiful whole.

Fucking Erika though man. Her imouto power is maximum. She is truly the best.

I watched the first few minutes of Glitter Force because I hate myself. Never again.

It's been so long since I've watched any sort of dub that I had almost forgotten why they are trash, but even just 5 minutes was enough to reignite the seething hatred. The voice acting is dogshit, the dialogue is written for retards, and the blatant Americanization of everything is sickening, among a whole host of other issues. Even without having seen a lick of Smile Precure, I could tell instantly just how much they chopped up and rearranged everything, for instance, or hyper-exaggerated certain character traits (or outright removed some.)

>Would you mind making a clip of Erika at her best?

I'd gladly do so, but unfortunately I'm at the wrong end of the series for that. Plot has kicked into gear, and that leaves little room for cute moments. My memory is too poor to recall any distinct scenes, and more importantly which episode they occured in, so I'm afraid I can't be of much help. Besides, imouto power is not something you can accurately assess from a few clips or so. It needs to radiate off of every single witnessed action, behavior, mannerism, tone, etc etc, and permeate through your entire body.

As a fellow gentleman of The Way, I highly recommend you watch Heartcatch (if not all the other Precures as well, they're quite good), so you might see Erika's cuteness for yourself.


 No.729308

Heartcatch down. 10/10 just as good as everyone said. The only thing that could possibly improve it is removing Moonlight. Not because I dislike her or anything, but because Tsubomi was such a weak character, with 0 presence, that she needed the screentime a smaller cast would bring her. Introducing Sunshine was pushing it, but still doable. A 4th Precure was way too many straws on that camels back. From that point on, they didn't have enough time to adequately develop Sunshine, Moonlight, and kick the plot into overdrive while still giving Tsubomi the attention she required. As is, she felt completely flat as a character, right up until the final episodes where they crammed the culmination of her entire character arc into a few good scenes.

Erika simply stood out too much, hogging all notice in the first half of the series. In the second half where Blossoms was expected, they tried to split focus between too many elements, leaving none to the neglected MC. That was the one major flaw.

I nearly cried at Dark Precure's end. She was just a cute girl trying to win her fathers love and didn't deserve all that. How dare those fuckers not even give her a purification and resurrection, like Kumojacky and the other Generals.

From the small adverts shown at the end of the Heartcatch final episodes, Suite doesn't look all that impressive. I hope it surprises me when I start on it in the next few days.

This ED is actually so fucking good. I'm tentatively ranking it 2nd best ED in all the franchise.

Isn't Suite just a rehashed Fresh? I'm about 35 episodes in, pretty close to the end, and so far absolutely nothing revolutionary has happened. It's just been all the same concepts and shit that Fresh did, but better. I'm starting to develop a working theory that every other Precure is just "okay," as staff gets takes a breather, gets their bearings, and recharges for the next Precure.

What a beautiful smile. I cried a bit.

I've heard that many people didn't like Suite, or thought it was just a very weak season, and I can understand that. Some of the arcs were dragged-on forever and had weak writing, the best arc (Seiren arc) was just ripped from Fresh, Ako a shit, the villains were a bit too comedic and Saturday-morning tier, and the musical message of good (happy) vs bad (sad) music was, well, simple.

But what the fuck ever. I liked Suite. It was good. Seiren was mega cute, especially when she was still a villain, I liked the dynamic between Hibiki/Kanade, especially when they weren't 100% BFFs, and the music theme spoke to my soul. In particular, I loved the villains. Not Trio the Minor, because those guys were (lovable) losers, but Noise and Mephisto. Even the Negatones were pretty cool. They definitely had the best transformation sequence, from the varied summonings by Seiren/Trio/Mephisto, to the skeletal bird made of malevolent energy swirling around and possessing things. That was all cool shit. And I always got a kick out of when they said "NEGA" cause it would sound a bit like nigga. Very enjoyable villains.

Overall, even though it was a bit lackluster coming off the heels of Heartcatch, I think Suite had enough soul packed into it to overcome its shortcomings. A by-the-books Precure with enough polish to slightly elevate it.

I don't think I'd chalk it up all up to one event. Starting from 5 GoGo, the series has slowly been toning things down. Villains have been more comical, the Precure almost never beat them up directly, and the messages and themes have become more appropriate for children. Most importantly, outside of (what seems like) the exception of Heartcatch, the fights have been dramatically simplified. Way too much so.

I'm very sad about that last point. Every season up till GoGo had been ramping up the budget and choreography for the fight scenes, leading to some seriously cool shit, but then immediately after it was all flushed down the drain for repetitive stock animation attacks and Precure Kicks. Maybe gogo had really bad reception by the legitimate target demographic and the suits made the decision to scale things down and truly focus on them?

Smile may be orientated to children far more than any other Precure, but that intent is undermined by just how sexual they are.

Regardless, it's a minor nitpick. It's a clear design choice and I'll get over it. There are far worse offenders, anyways, like the super form that almost all Precure get nowadays. Those are almost always pure shit that ruin everything good the initial designs bring.

I legitimately like all the adult fairies, but I can't stand the childish or, god forbid, the babby ones.

Going back to the first one can be a bit jarring because it's really obvious Toei had no idea the series would last four cours- expect the plot to completely fall apart in the third cour and only sorta wrap up at the end. It's also a little janky, since they didn't really have any idea what they were doing, which ends up being part of its charm.

This post is three months old, so you might have found it already, but there is a fuckhuge torrent full of all Precure audio releases (OST, character songs, OP/EDs… + scans) from the first two generations. You can find it on the new Nyaa, though be warned that it's a set of goddamn .wav files, so set ~35GB aside if you want it.

Nothing like it seems to exist for the third generation and in particular Doki's stuff is a pain in the ass to hunt down, but it's better than searching for 5+ year old torrents. Seeders are few but in two weeks or so I can seed it again.

You're welcome. Note that in Suite's OST, the songs continue past the tracks, but this release splits them off properly. Maybe this was a problem with the physical release; every torrent of it has that issue.

> How does one define a "generation" of Precure?

Seems to be a somewhat vague term, but usually people Futari Wa up to GoGo into the first gen, Fresh up to Smile into the second, and everything afterwards into the third gen. It kind of fits stylistically but the only hard common ground I can see is the composer (Sato, Takanashi, Takaki respectively). Then again, the composer isn't unimportant if you compare say Futari Wa and Heartcatch.

What a enjoyable mess. It feels like they wasted almost the entirety of the first half of the season on monster of the week and random shenanigans, only to attempt to railroad all plot progression, character development, and themes into a few episodes here or there, mostly in the end. It's a damn shame, as I could tell they were hitting their stride somewhere around episode 30 or so. Everything slowly started meshing together, they were better able to weave the bare-bone plot into the random hijinks, and the three generals interaction with the Precure was stepping outside of the bounds of Saturday-morning tier and thus was getting a bit more interesting. Both the Precure and the villains even started getting more actual development and time devoted to them individually. The only problem is that it was just too little, too late.

As much as it pains me to say it, since I rather liked them, Wolfrun and company should have had their role and arcs done and over with by the end of the first season when the Precure went to rescue Candy and stomped them flat. That would have left the second part more open to properly pacing the plot, developing Joker and Pierrot (practically a non-character and Noise:redux, respectively,) as the primary villains, and giving more time for the Bad End Precure. I am actually outrageously buttmad about that last bit. Not only were they way too cute to last barely a single episode, but there was so much they could have done as recurring villains, or even with just 2 or 3 episodes, to flesh out Happy and the gang. Super wasted potential, which really sums up Smile entirely. Pretty weak season.

Looking forward to Dokidoki though. Looks good.

Futari ha, particularly Splash Star, is great stuff. It might feel like a bit of a rip-off of the original two, but I think it more than succeeds in establishing its individuality. It was made in the sweetspot of Precure history before they doubled down on the children demographic, so it still had some deeper themes and writing to it. It's just really good and features the strongest Precures in existence, as well as what is arguably the best villain cast. I shed a manly tear for Kintoleski erry tiem.

I didn't think much of it as I was watching it, but I've come to seriously love and appreciate Precure 5 in retrospect. That series, despite existing in the end of the strange and brief twilight zone of being halfway children orientated but with simultaneous adult appeal, was just incredibly solid. The villains were good, the Cures had more than enough development (as expected of a rare Precure with 100 episodes), the mascots weren't annoying and were even bordering dangerously on being good additions, and the fighting and animation was simply superb. I miss the hope and expectations I had for the franchise as I finished gogo.

This is all just opinions in the end, though. I'm sure there's only one real universal answer to which Precure firmly deserves the slot as 'one of the better ones'. That's Heartcatch for sure.

Someone else would be more qualified to answer that, as I've only just reached Dokidoki. For what it's worth, Fresh was lame, Suite was endearing, and Smile was very children friendly with glimmers of potential here and there. All were enjoyable, as I don't think it's rightly possible for Precure to be outright bad, but none of them were hitting it out of the park, as it were.

Ain't that the truth. Has honor and a great mustache, gives /fit/ advice, invites you to his gym, teaches you how to draw correctly and appreciates good pastry. It sure feels bad to know that you'll never become best buds with him.

I originally dropped SS because Nagisa/Honoka clones were just too much after the insane slog that was Max Heart, but it turned out to be one of the best seasons. I honestly liked it more than Heartcatch because it was more fun throughout and because I unashamedly daughterfufagged Saki from episode 11 onwards. The Michiru/Kaoru arc felt a little awkward and forced at times, especially w.r.t. voice acting. Maybe the VA was intentionally bad to show that they don't know how to act in a human manner, but it was so stilted at times that it threw me out of the scene. Kiriya was done better. The way they split up the hissatsu phrase among the four at the end was amazing though.

I think they're about equal. I consider them as the pinnacle of their respective Precure generation, managing to be more solid in theme, writing, staples, etc etc, than the others. What they each lack is more than compensated by their strengths, leading to a really strong impression overall. Both were great stuff.

>>766835

You should've seen it as it was airing. We get an entire arc building up Regina as friends with the Cures, and then Cure Ace's design leaks and it's of course assumed that Regina would be Ace. This is not only the obvious answer but would also be a popular development because Regina was (and continues to be) arguably the most popular character in Dokidoki, especially among the target audience of little girls.

The day comes where Ace is introduced, and it's some fucking nobody who hadn't appeared at all before the episode. Not only that, but she fights Regina and causes her to fuck off and leave the main cast. It was horrible, not only on /a/ but in Japan as well where there were parents on Twitter saying that their kids were crying by the end of the episode. To make it worse, Ace's character arc calls for her being a huge bitch for the better part of her development. People hated her to the point where it just started to be funny.

Aguri was a fucking mistake.


 No.766867

>>766850

I just don't know man. I feel conflicted because I actually like Aguri, but her entrance into the show is just so bad. They couldn't have possibly done this worse. Since she was introduced in episode 22/23, nearly every episodes writing has since focused heavily on her (as of 32). It needs to stop. Other characters need time in the spotlight (especially literally who Alice) and they need to bring back Regina, whose arc was just paused wholesale in favor of Aguri antics.

That's what really gets me. They've mentioned Regina maybe two times since Aguri has appeared, and they were right in the damn middle of the finale of her character arc when she was replaced, not to mention just how important she is to Mana the main Cures. You can't just cast away and memoryhole a pivotal character like that.

I can understand the anger though. If I were watching this weekly, I would be apocalyptic. Forgive the double post. I screwed up.

Infinity is an engineering answer, not a mathematics answer. Saying that 26/0 is infinity is an approximate assumption, one that must be stated clearly to justify your result. Pure math knows that 26/0 is undefined and can go into a laundry list of proofs to show why, but engineering just wants the god damn fucking integral to come out somewhere in the ballpark so they're fine with infinity because it allows you to simplify a lot of stuff.

Yes5 is pretty fun. The comedy actually makes me laugh, the romance is well-executed unlike HaCha and everybody is so incredibly smug all the time. Only complaints so far are the repeated QUALITY and the somewhat boring battles. Speaking of battles, their animation seems to vary between great sakuga and cheesy 70s cartoon from episode to episode. Did Yes5 not get a lot of budget after SS bombed? Where would I even get info on stuff like that (nip sources are fine)?

I am mad. Mad about terrible pacing. Dokidoki was well on its way to being one of the better Precures. It had a solid story with tight focus, good characters, strong theme, and a nice ratio of SoL to plot. There was even a nice amount of fisticuffs, which is always a bonus. Then Aguri happened. Aguri, as a character, wasn't bad. I liked her and her role in the overall story. But her introduction into the series and what it signified was so bad, so poorly executed, that it dragged the entire show down for a full third of its runtime. It's a darn shame, since it ruined a Precure that would otherwise be solidly in the top 3 (of what I've watched.)

My favorite thing was that they brought back the humanized version of the mascots. I really liked that back in Yes 5, and always vainly hope they will bring it back on a more permanent basis for the franchise. Sharuru was cute.

To be fair, TV ratings are on the decline in general: Red is Precure, blue is Rider, green is Sentai. For what it's worth, the total approval ratings (rather than TV) stayed the same after they took a nosedive during HaCha and GoPri, though interestingly enough Mahou was more popular among "older" girls whereas Kira was more popular among younger ones. This squares with my feeling that Toei doesn't really know where to go with the franchise. Let's hope Hugtto is good.

Last third was more of the same. Nozomi is still the cutest, everybody is still smug, and the battles are okay but not amazing — except for the duel between Karen and Hadenya, which was A class stuff out of nowhere. The second generals were good, too. I liked in particular how the old-timer had a completely different battle style and was at odds with Kawarino over the way to run Nightmare. Speaking of which, Kawarino is a completely irredeemable piece of shit, fuck him for killing Bunbee. At least he had a good monster form and got his just deserts at the end.

>giving your crush a coupon for a ride on you

This boy just doesn't know how to pace himself. Not that I do, considering I just watched 19 episodes in two days.

GoGo is amazing so far. The QUALITY is almost gone — the only episode where fights were janky like in Yes5 was, ironically, a cameo episode for some comedian, who always show that there is actual work behind the silly voice acting. Not only that, but episodes occasionally (especially in the beginning) feature actual "camera" work, which is rare enough in anime, let alone a Sunday morning show.

Honestly, it was so good that during the first few episodes I was worried they'll focus too much on the new characters and the fights now that the old protags are already characterized, but the hijinks came back shortly afterwards. Silly nonsense like Detective Komachi are what made Yes5 good and Urara as surprise boke never gets old. In fact, Kurumi is almost underdeveloped. She doesn't behave enough like Milk to be a comeback of (what I assume was) a popular character but since her situation isn't handled like the shocking development it should be in-universe, it isn't the start of a big character arc either. Then again the latter would probably turn her into the dreaded screentime hog that new girls tend to be, so I don't know how you'd fix this. Maybe problems like these are why they don't do sequel seasons anymore. That said, I absolutely love her eyebrows and every part she plays in the ED, even if her cure design is a little bit tacky with all the roses.

Eternal is a surprisingly good team of villains, and not just because of the dynamic between Bombee and Yamamoto. The Hoshiinas are much better than the Kowainaas for some reason even though their only real difference is a sphere full of eyes instead of a mask. Finally, it was impressive how the characters actually use all the magical bullshit they are loaded with. Shows where people pinpoint someone in a different dimension with a mailbox that can find anyone, then go there with a courier that can go anywhere provided he knows where it is are rare and I didn't expect Precure to be one of them. It also came as somewhat of a surprise that the transformation cellphones are actual phones. If this show wasn't so old you'd think it's a jab at smartphones.

Consider me blown away. This might actually turn out to be my favorite season if they pull out the stops during the mid-season and grand finale as much as you'd expect from here.

I'm rather enjoying HaCha so far. It's outrageously silly, the characters are good and likeable, especially Hime, and the fisticuffs are satisfying. If it keeps the course (I'm told it won't,) then it'd be a masterpiece right on Heartcatchs level.

The core theme of the series is "child care".

"Looking forward to the future" is related to this theme.

They want to make moms cool again.

"Heroism and work" are themes little girls might identify with their own mothers.

"Moms are strong, kind and cool", and they show this best "when they're protecting their children."

The hug in the title it's indeed from HUG as an act of showing love, friendship and tenderness.

>no mermaid cure forms in the Little Mermaid episode

Dropped.

The second half is good, but not as amazing as the first one. I'm not even sure why, but it might be related to the criminally underutilized foils and the Rose Pact. You can't give the cures fucking light swords named after their old second tier attacks and then only use them for stock footage that is very cheesy on top. As for the Rose Pact, I know it's supposed to be a mystery item, but the fact that we never really know what it does hurts the mid-season finale a lot. The fights weren't bad at all, but in Yes5 you know or at least think at that point that when Nightmare gets the Dream Collet, the resurrection of Palmier is dead in the water. In GoGo, if Eternal gets the Pact, they will, uh… I guess Syrup can't go to the Rose Garden anymore, but even he himself doesn't know why he wants to go there, so nothing is visibly at stake. The only thing they reveal before the last arc (which I haven't watched yet) is that the director knows Flora and is bothered that she chose the Precure over him, whatever that means concretely. From the way Anacondy and Sybiletta act I expect something romance-related, but as a whole the plot is very thin, which is weird if you consider how good and present the villains are.

Before it sounds like I'm shitting on GoGo, it's still very good. The game show episode was great and Bunbee offering to become Precure's leader was some good stuff out of the blue. Something I forgot to mention last time is how well they fixed issues with the special attacks from Yes5: Mint's ability forced her into a passive role every time and Lemonade Flash didn't do anything other attacks didn't do better, but the saucer and chains make them useful. Also Hoshiinas a cute. Maybe this is why I like them more.

Onto the final arc.
