"HUGs, Hazards and Heists" Edition.

KiraKira has already ended, HUGtto starts in 7 days.

Kyuranger's final episode is next week as well, Lupinranger vs Patranger starts the week after.

Also Build goes full edge and is going to fight the Hokuto guys next week.

So, the so-called 15th Anniversary season is just one week away! What hopes do you have for it? Will this one be a Gokaiger-tier season, or will they fuck up to Decade levels?



I have a hard time understanding how people enjoyed kirakira past the first twenty or so episodes. I dropped it around 35 or something. I just really hope hugtto is better.


I hope they fight. I'm still mad blue in kirakira wasn't allowed to maul monsters. She's a fucking lion.

Kinda funny considering the first times Gelato went to straight-up punch her enemies, then going for shit like drill punches and some murderfuck lances. Then she had to resign that because muh team attacks. At least they gave the dog a goddamn chocolate sword by the end.


It does feel like it fell flat halfway through. Can't really say, dropped it before reaching ep 15.



>dropped it before reaching ep 15

You did the right thing. It started off just as a bunch of fun sweets making friends, but then it became a bunch of drama and there was little to no character interaction at all. 30 episodes in and they didn't even really feel like friends. I miss mahou.

The final arc of Fresh was way better than I anticipated. Pineapple best girl. Berry worst girl. Tart best mascot so far. I didn't expect to like the show too much, but I did. I'm caught up to where I started now.





I wouldn't bet on it, unless you're a MILFfag.


The new pink is a chuuni and really hope they play that up to make her stand out and fun. Like her cure form, the her normal self still looks odd, the hair just doesn't look right.

>I miss mahou.

There's no possible way KiraKira could be any worse than Maho.


Good hopes.


Aoi is wild in general and I love her for it. Shame she was in KiraKira, and has been wasted potential in general.



I can guarantee you that Hugtto can be worse than Maho.



>There's no possible way KiraKira could be any worse than Maho.

Maho had:

-decent character building

-strong, believable relationships

-great humor

-cute, fun, and relatable MC, mirai was easy to self-insert into and she had a personality too, making her a great MC

-excellent romantic sub plot with leeko

-best and cutest mascot in all of precure (tart can be argued to be better but it's debatable)

-it even had adventures and 20 episodes or so took place in magic land

Maho was innovative, fun, and cute. Meanwhile, when we take a look at kirakira:

>himari, aoi, and ichika are cute

>they talk to each other once or twice

>the next 30 episodes are spent with the five girls hanging out and somehow barely having any meaningful interaction at all

>humor is scarce since most of the show is dedicated to either sweets making DARK BACKSTORIES

>ciel's design is excellent but she's a total fucking meme character SUPER GLOBAL TENSAI

>bibury is cute in theory but the writing was so fucking atrocious that she came across like more of a whiny five-year-old than an actual teenage girl

>all the time that could be spent bonding characters is spent introducing new ones and exploring their DARK PASTS

>pekorin is dumb and looks like a filthy old man

In summary, Kirakira had the potential to be great but it blew it, real hard.


File: f3a891035c4461b⋯.jpg (117.02 KB, 900x810, 10:9, aoi hen.jpg)


Aoi is the best thing to come out of KiraKira and I will enjoy her for years to come.


So, how was Kyuranger? I liked the first few episodes I watched, but never finished it because I got busy.

It's a shame because I felt it was the best Sentai in recent memory.



I haven't watched either one yet, but man. Precure is about bonds between people. Who, especially little girls, would want to watch a Precure like that? I hope KiraKira bombed badly to show them their mistake.



>I haven't watched either one yet

Hey now, form your own opinions before you insult Kirakira. I think it was shit, but I'd hate to turn someone away from it who never gave it a chance. You might like it! At least the OP and EDs were really great!

really though, it was shit



Don't worry, I'll give every one a fair shot. And I won't hold it against any good girls for being in a bad show.


>Directed by Junichi Sato

I can't wait. He has a talent for Magical Girls.



He's already wrong for implying Maho is anything but the worst in the entire franchise.

>main character is the blandest pink ever seen in the franchise

>the other main character is a magician who is shit at magic (which would be a decent trait with the proper development, see Smile), a tsundere and also she gets over the 'being shit at magic' trait way too quickly

>baby is incredibly wasted, goes from having a gorillion different forms to immediately grow up and be Shiny Luminous: Retard Edition

>Battles boil down to dodge one or two punches, then spam trinket of the episode; as a result, the first gimmick of the show (changing forms a la WizardKuuga) is completely underutilized just to show the finisher/Alexandrite form beam spam

>villains might as well not exist , which is worse considering the fact that there are lots of them and quality VAs are used for them (Joji Nakata and Yu Kobayashi as part of the first villain group, who last less than 20 episodes along their boss); to the point the main characters don't even give a shit about facing them

>The best character of the main group is the fucking fairy

>plot is shoved in way too late into the show

>Reused plots from Smile (eg, the "turn into kids" episode) but worse (they just magic themselves back to normal, no babby Cure forms)

>The final episode which consists of them in the future, only to magic themselves back to teenagers because fuck it

>QUALITY that rivals HaCha


I'll probably give it a try when the batch comes out. Didn't feel it too much because I saw how Lucky had the usual screaming retard red stuff, but apparently he seems to get better. Unlike Ninnigger.



Get the fuck out of here, Maho had the best final episode in all of precure.

>main character is the blandest pink ever seen in the franchise

To be fair, you have to be a little girl to truly understand the genius of Mirai's writing. She's unironically one of the best precure MCs ever right up there with Megumi and Love.

>QUALITY that rivals HaCha

But you see, the quality is acceptable because toei took the SHAFT approach with Maho. The effort was there, they just put all of it into the meme faces and reaction images instead of the animation. Once again, you have to be a little girl like all the rest of us here to really understand the genius of it all.

>But you see, the quality is acceptable because toei took the SHAFT approach with Maho. The effort was there, they just put all of it into the meme faces and reaction images instead of the animation.

They didn't have the budget so they compensated with interesting ideas. Reminder that Mahou aired alonside Dragonball Super, and when Toriyama complained about Super's quality, suddenly it got good at the same time Mahou suffered.

They redirected animators/funds and caused a drop in quality.

So in honor of the first broadcast of Futari Wa, February 1st has been nicknamed "The day of Precure" so you can expect lots of posts by that tag (in nip obviously).

Also, first 15th anniversary video thing dropped: "Their Courage is my Dream".

February is Precure history month



Super is ending or at least taking a break isn't it? Maybe there's hope yet.



Super ends in March. And thankfully the new Captain Tsubasa anime is by David, so we might have a chance of having something good instead of shitty series like Salior Moon stealing their staff.

Does this count as the cute things general thread? Is Pripara allowed in here? Now that I'm caught up with Idol Time its been a few days without any Pripara and the withdraw symptoms are starting to appear.

How deep of a hole is Precure to go down? I already watched the original run and have not been too interested in the sequent precures.



/pc/ and /ai/ have long held a close connection, so it isn't unreasonable to post that sort of stuff here, especially since the board is probably too slow to support each individually.

It's a pretty deep hole if you commit to it. There are almost 700 episodes across 14 or 15 seasons/series. If you do want to start into it, a good place to start would be the upcoming season, which starts this Sunday in Japan, Saturday night in the U.S. or Europe.

>How deep of a hole is Precure to go down? I already watched the original run and have not been too interested in the sequent precures.

It's a deep one, but it has the advantage of almost having no continuity within itself, so you can start with whichever catches your attention. Again, it's a franchise with almost 50 episodes per year, and 15 different entries (only two being direct sequels), plus the respective movies and perhaps the novels if you're into some extra material.

I'm assuming you liked it, right? I'm very happy to hear there's some new blood to talk to, this place is dead enough as it is.

By the way, who do you think has the cutest pubic hair? Personally, I think Aroma does, but Yui must be catching up. I bet Lala is nice and fuzzy in her transformed form though.

I don't know, give Heartcatch a shot. I started there, a lot of people do. It has a good plot, good fighting, good school/family/town stuff, and the main cures look like little girls and if you don't want to take them home then I don't even know what to say.




Heartcatch is fucking shit. Start with Fresh. It's not the best, but it's one of those series that everyone likes.



Were you going to justify that opinion with something?


File: 13efcff35465931⋯.jpg (34.11 KB, 213x213, 1:1, 46t45654.jpg)


HC is literally just about boring victims of the week. It's 95% drama, 5% fun. Tsubomi and Erika are cute but the show is hardly even about them. It's just "HURRRR MUH RANDOM PEOPLE NO ONE GIVES SHIT ABOUT AND THEIR DAILY LIVES" and "HURRRRRR MUH YURI AND HER EDGY BACKSTORY" and "MUH SUPER SERIOUS SEKRIT PRECURE TRIALS" nad "HUIRRRRR YOU KIDDOS JUST AREN'T STRONG ENOUGH" and the list goes on. Meanwhile, if we take a look at a better done series like HaCha, the story is:

-all about the main characters and their friendships

-focused (for a precure series)

-light hearted, fun


-funny, good humor

-drama only when necessary


HC just doesn't even feel like any of the other precure series. I was at least able to enjoy the other ones to a certain extent, but HC just bored me to death and pissed me off. My opinion though.


File: effcd647ca43f13⋯.jpg (30.51 KB, 370x363, 370:363, effcd647ca43f137eccb573b56….jpg)

Its heartwarming and reassuring to see five replies. I thought there were only two or three in this thread.


Youre the pervert that wants to lewd Aroma from the other thread. Get away.


>almost having no continuity within itself, so you can start with whichever catches your attention

Sold. I look forward to hearing [autistic precure noises] and kashikoma~ from a deep grave



I'm not a pervert, I simply have an aesthetic preference for pubescent 幼女. They are the prettiest. You might understand too someday.



I much prefer the victim of the week style of HC and Gopri than just inanimate object of the week. There's more stakes there, someone is being threatened and in the later stages of both the victim is shown to be in pain.



>all about the main characters and their friendships

>drama only when necessary

Is this a troll post?



>There's more stakes

I don't like stakes. It's a show about little girls with superpowers, I just want them to have silly gags, hang out after school, be vaguely gay for each other, and save the day.


The romance bullshit was hilarious and you know it. It had entertainment value unlike the DAMAGED backstory stuff that heartcatch had. And yes, all the girls in HaCha actually felt like friends, and really good ones. They were always hanging out and doing stuff together besides precuring, and you could feel them bonding. Compare it to Kirakira, where all the characters felt like total robots who talk to each other only because they're programmed to.

Im in love with this boy (girl)



I like the victim of the week because it emphasized the bonds of everyone in the community they were protecting. Often it was someone they directly cared about. It didn't feel like drama because it was very contained and short, and the point was to uplift them and change their minds. And I don't know but it still felt like it was mostly cute and funny stuff. They spent a lot of the show doing things together and being friends and making faces. The DRAMA was Yuri. I didn't like her but it didn't ruin the show for me.

But yeah the show does lack the "girls hanging around as their own little family in their precure base". And there was almost nothing to the fantasy side, just a tree and some indistinguishable fairies. That's why GoGo was my favorite season and I'd sooner rewatch Fresh than HC.


Both Heart Catch and Happiness Charge are decent introductions to PreCure because the differences they have aren't unusual to a new viewer. Yuri's family issues and HaCha's romance-focused subplot stick out when compared to the rest of PreCure, but aren't actually bad in and of themselves, especially since succeeding shows didn't adopt those themes. Calling either of them "fucking shit" is hopefully just banter, because it's clearly wrong.



Maybe they felt like friends in the first half, but as the show approaches the last cour, it gets more and more consumed by Megumi's love triangle with Blue and Queen Mirage to the point where the other girls hardly matter anymore. Heartcatch does have melodrama, but to accept HaCha's nonsense, in particular the forced Seiji part at the end, while rejecting HC's can only be about your (awful of course, this is /a/) taste rather than actual content.

On top of that, HC used its melodrama for very entertaining resolutions, mostly expressed through fights. Is there a remotely good resolution to the romance bullshit in HaCha except Mirage? This isn't a rhethorical question, I don't remember it too well and don't want to rewatch it, but from what I remember most subplots were hastily resolved if they weren't outright dropped.

>Compare it to Kirakira

That's like calling HaCha's characterization shit because Yes5 did it better. Kirakira doesn't enter into it.

I'd call HaCha shit if only because for an anniversary series they do nothing with it aside from intro cameos. While I do understand Precure's big brothers did celebrations past the 30 year mark (in the case of Sentai) and by the tenth/fifteenth entry of a certain period it feels weird since they actually acknowledge it's the 10th anniversary unlike their previous cases.



Oh I do understand fully. You are a hopeless pervert and I'm just as bad for wanting to do many things with Non and Lala. Aroma is still for pure evil terrorism and crow noises only.


You can do better than that


Villains confirmed for Hugtto:

>Shinichiro Miki (Ristol, villain boss) Sieg finally joins Precure along with the other Imagin

>Masanori Machida (Daigan) another guy with no big roles but he's done a gorillion toku roles as an extra

>Sayaka Ohara (Papple) Kirara's mom turned heel

>Fukushi Ochiai (Charareet) apparently he's the son of a baseball player and the cousin of a deceased pro wrestler, not many big roles

>Yukari Tamura (RuuRuu) This is the closest we're getting to Nanoha vs Precure Also she's the parrot from Gokaiger. From an anniversary show to the other.

Listen dude, neither of us are perverts. It is normal to lust after, pretty and cute members of the same species and the opposite sex, as God intended. This idea that we're weird for liking cute rokunenseis is a modern fabrication made up by feminists and you-know-whos. People who get off to being covered in shit or guro: they're the real perverts. Nino's cute green cunny was literally designed to be admired and sought after. Don't let anyone tell you your'e a pervert. You're a decent human being and I love you.

HaCha's biggest failing was failing to live up to the hype. Some anons actually hoped for dozens of PreCure after the worldwide setting was revealed; others thought we might get an All-Stars-like PreCure universe with previous Cures showing up (lots of Decade jokes were tossed around). Instead, we got a fairly standard show with a heavier romance twist. In retrospect, Toei would never have done all the cool things they could have done due to sheer miserlinessbudget constraints..

Gotta get the little girls hooked on makeup when they're the most vulnerable.

Aside from that and the really silly catchphrase during the transformation, Huggto looks like a it'll be alright. Though I wonder after how many episodes they will drop the "feed the toy crystal to the baby" thing, because that seems like a wave of complaints/lawsuits waiting to happen.




Now that you mention it. Somehow that has become a running gag where at the start of each season after Dream Parade she says




it feels like a gag on her loud speaking voice but is it something else, a VA mistake at a live event maybe?

You make a good argument. Is this a confession?! I haven't even debuted yet!

That first episode was actually really good. Hana is sexy and cute, and even though the other two cures have really generic designs, their actual characters seem interesting. Time will tell. Kirakira's first episode was good too.

But hugtto is different. It will stay good. Surely.


The first episode was very very solid. There's a good set-up from the get-go, it has foundation, definition. It doesn't feel like it's gonna meander through it's whole air-time and there's someplace it wants to reach and things it wants to do.

I have high hopes for Neo Nightmare/Eternal 2.0. They had a really good introduction scene.

Overall it felt a lot like Classic Precure. I hope it delivers my expectations of being a mix of Yes! 5/GoGo and Fresh.

That said, I'm worried about the baby. It looks like it's gonna be really but REALLY important so hopefully it won't be that much of screentime black hole. With some luck the baby will grow up and become the extra cure quickly.


>HugCure episode 1

I want to compare this to Jululu but will refrain from doing so. Anyways, its like I never stopped watching the original Precure now. My only complaint is that the heart shoot didn't have a nice glowing beam behind it.


Gomen. I can't accept your feelings.



>Hana is sexy and cute

And it ends there.

Can't wait till HagCure ends.




Glad I wasn't the only one to think 13 (JC1?) is a bit too old. Thought it was a target audience thing so didn't mind very much.



Age doesn't matter, their designs are 18-ish this time bar Hana.



Cures are all chuunis with a few exceptions.

Hey now, it's about the writing and the comedy. Sexiness is the icing on the cake. What's most important is quality writing and storytelling. All the girls in Fresh look like they could be 20, but Fresh is still one the best precure series regardless because it's written very well and it's just fun to watch. Kirakira had some of the sexiest cures yet, but the show was trash because it was written poorly.

>The only thing bugging me is the lipstick

Really? Normally I think lipstick looks dumb on little girls (like in happiness charge), but I feel like they did it really well this time. When it closed in on Hana's lips, I actually felt a little tingle. The artwork in this episode was really good, in general. The animation was great, the characters looked great, the backgrounds looked great.

I don't know, it just bothered me. I'm not used to it and I like the balance of their faces without it. I think it also gives them more of an honest and pure feeling. I'll be used to it within 2 episodes.



I see what you mean. They look more down to earth without the lipstick. I kind of like what is implied by the lipstick though. It's like they want to be adults. The theme is MIRAI and stuff and hana wants to be a kakkoii oneesan. It makes sense here honestly.



I hadn't thought about that. Anyway it's ok, it just makes the gap moe even stronger.


Hana's フレ!フレ! does strange things to me.



Absolutely. Ichika had a million dime-a-dozen catchphrases that never stuck too much, but FUREFURE honestly might be ARIENAI or KETTEI. I really like where they're going with this new series.

Do we already know who's going to sub Hugtto? Either way, I can only recommend you to learn Japanese. Precure especially is very easy to understand and Kitsunekko has (the official?) nip subtitles. No sub drama necessary.



Now go watch pripara



Since the thread became Spiral of Madness General, where do you start with PriPara? Is it like Aikatsu where it's pretty much a straight line from start to current broadcast, or does it have a lot of spinoffs and such?


File: c9390e3833c86d7⋯.jpg (87.39 KB, 1280x720, 16:9, [Ohys-Raws] Idol Time PriP….jpg)


Yep, straight line. It's basically like Aikatsu but not total shit. Take Aikatsu's middle schoolers, replace them with rokunenseis, take Aikatsu's melodrama and bullshit about NATURAL TALENT and HARD WORK and maybe cut it in fourths and replace three of those fourths with fun and comedy, take the boring nothingness, replace that with fun, and you get the idea. Pripara is pretty good but honestly, idol time is possibly one of the best little girl anime ever. But you have to get through all 190 episodes of pripara first. Just start with episode one, finish it, then watch idol time.

Anyway, good luck.

Straight line it is, thanks. Also, Aikatsu is good fun.



What do you mean? When it comes to 2D, baby/toddlercon was always something I enjoy, yet rarely find.

Hug-tan, with her rosy skin, adorable face and diapers is a direct hit.

I don't know, I watched the first two episodes and I could see where it was going. (Forgive me, I forgot the names) Ichigo was just worshiping the purple haired girls cock and it looked like that was gonna last another million episodes. It just seemed like they were going to take singing and dancing and regurgitating shitty mass-produced pop music way too seriously and there was going to be plenty of drama and "HURRRRR DORYOKU VS. SAINOU THE AGE OLD BATTLE" and a lack of actual fun. And to top it all off, the girls are canonically heterosexual. To summarize, it seemed like, to enjoy Aikatsu, I needed to enjoy watching stupid bullshit drama without fun or jokes full of vapid teenage philosophical questions starring sluts fuck boys on screen. I mean the sainou vs doryoku crap makes me feel insecure enough as it is, but then seeing middle school boys and girls crush on each other is the nail in the coffin. I'm dead at that point. I don't want to die. Jesus fucking christ, I want my little girls shows to star fellow virgins who aren't planning on losing their virginity any time soon, unless it's with another girl, in which case, I'm not jealous or threatened. Pripara is unoffensive, cute, and fun, and Aikatsu is the antithesis of all those traits I desire in a little girls show.

At least, you know, that's what it seemed like it was gonna be after two episodes.



>seeing middle school boys and girls crush on each other is the nail in the coffin

Romance has no place in idol anime. I was scared about this with DanPri but nothing has happened thankfully. This came up when Hibiki was being Hibiki. The JC characters mostly are aware of romance but the JS ones, maybe except Non, are entirely clueless. It is a gap made very clear.



>I was scared about this with DanPri but nothing has happened thankfully

I was really scared at first. Thank God they're faggots.

Yeah, you jumped to incorrect conclusions very quickly. There's no hetero romance. Also no DORYOKU VS SAINOU at all- in fact, the series emphasizes how hard all the idols train, even Mizuki (the "purple haired girl"). Every single girl who makes it big in Aikatsu earned it.

The show is about cute girls training hard to become great idols while having friendly rivalries and grand aspirations. It turned out well, start at 1 and give it another shot sometime.




Yeah I mean I ran out of shit to watch a while ago so I might as well. I always get fuzzy feeling when an anon recommends me something anyway. Maybe I'll like it this time.

Honestly hetero romance doesn't bother me that much if it's between an older male and a little girl. It just pisses me off when teenage boys/younger boys are in a romantic relationship with girls their own age. It reminds me of the past I never had. It's a bitchy first world problem, I know, but it is undeniably hard to control what pisses you off. I was more talking about the romance I saw in screenshots of Aikatsu stars. It looked like the cat girl had a boyfriend or something. Whatever though, that's 200 episodes away from me still.

Aikatsu Stars has some romance in it but it's a completely different series from the original Aikatsu and is ending in a few months. Looks like no one else liked the romance either.

Pics just to be faithful to the thread title.


The only thing I know about Aikatsu is that they like doing the Brave Stance with chainsaws, use bazookas and all kinds of weaponry.

Do they do something with it? Also is it too big on the yurishit?

The Obari/Brave stance is a running joke whenever they have to cut a tree down, which is roughly once a year for Christmas. As for the yuri, they're just really good friends anon.



Oh well, I guess I'll stay on Precure And catch up on Build if only to listen to Norio Wakamoto as a Driver.

He's the SKURRRASSSSSHHHU DORRRRRAIBAAA. It's every bit as good as you'd expect.



>Nip subs

Fug, why didn't I think of that before watching hundreds of episodes? I already noticed how I was understanding a lot of it. This is just one more reason why little girl shows are the best.



>This is just one more reason why little girl shows are the best.

It is an interesting feeling watching without subtitles. The first time I did it with Pripara I had to pay far more attention and actually think to translate everything in time for the next voice. It was quite a bit of work.

At some point you will realize the series for /a/ are ones in the little girl category. Cute girls, music, various creatures to fight, friendship, no romance to fight over, elementary school japanese, lots of episodes for reaction face gathering, and plenty of buyfag material put these franchises squarely in the path of /a/.

Why did this seem like a good idea? Consider the chart. Purity of girls decreases every year through high school graduation while lewdness in wearing costumes like your picture rises then falls. The ideal time is between JS5 and JC3 where the girls are still pure but know they are wearing something lewd. Once high school begins they are all sluts craving dicks. If they were going for a kind of gap moe they went the wrong way. JS2 to JS4 is the best time for putting the girls in lewd clothes to achieve gap moe as the girls are initially unaware of the lewdness but slowly realize it while still being cute and pure.

Unrelated. After 12 hours of work with no breaks or food, I started hearing dekirudekirudekirudekirudekirudekirudekirudekirudekirudekirudekirudekirudekirudekirudekirudekirudekirudekirudekirudekirudekirudekirudekirudekiru and managed a few more hours. Might need to start rewatching Idol Time.



Please label your axes.



At least Moooonlight's age was necessarily older because she was the previous Cure. And I get them making her 3 years older to make her feel separate and washed up. There's no reason to just bring in two new JKs. They could have made them JC3 like Mint and Aqua if they wanted a couple of notably mature girls in the group.



It looks like its actually two different graphs 2D graphs superimposed upon each other. It would be a total mess if he tried to label anything. He should have just made it 3D since there are two dependent variables.



It would work if the Y axis was min to max and the values were redone to fit. I don't need to know what unit lewdness is, just that the ideal zone is when it's above purity.



That, but PreCure feels more and more like "mature and strong women with their futures already settled >>> little girls who enjoy life".

This is really evident with Hagtto as well.

>boxing and categorizing yourself as having certain set preferences

Don't be stupid. The best way to evaluate the appearance of a female is by her aesthetic appeal. Younger ones (JC and JS) do tend to be more aesthetically pleasing due to the subtlety of their build, their manner of behavior and purity of mind and emotion, and their tightness, but restricting yourself to them because you "identify" as having a preference for them is a attitude quite lacking in refinement and dignity, and it pains me to see someone who acts like this who also happens to be a fellow connoisseur of taiwanese middle schooler drawings. The developed artist realizes that categories as large as "adult women" and "young girls" are not to be generalized and discarded by mere preferences. Of course, there are exceptions (like scat or guro or other genres meant for the mentally ill) but I just find it hard to believe that so-called lolicons can never be into more developed women simply because of their build, and that "normal" people can never be into little girls because "it's wrong." The normal male sexual orientation is directed towards the vagina of a healthy female. Sexual preferences cannot be that specific (generally), however, aesthetic preferences and artistic insight can. However, they are still malleable. The "normalfag" sees a middle schooler and rejects any sexual thoughts because he has been trained to reject those certain aesthetics. The snowflake teenager sees "3DPD" and rejects the aesthetic due to a sort of self-inflicted conditioning. The teenager and the normalfag are still attracted to both 3D and little girls though. What is holding them back from fully realizing all of the beauty of the world around them are their preconceived notions of what is and isn't beautiful, due primarily to these pesky labels that modern man is so eager to put on everyone.

Don't box yourself. Free your mind. Think like an artist.

>I specifically used the word "prefer"

That doesn't mean anything. The whole point of my post was to underline the importance of the distinction between sexual and aesthetic preferences.



>the vagina of a healthy female.

Those things are terrifying and should be mosaic covered at all times.

>Sexual preferences cannot be that specific

This is what I have never understood in those shitflinging big breasts or flat chest threads. How can those people be so strict in their preferences? I have a strong preference toward little girl characters on an appearance level but that does not mean every character I like must be a little girl. Same logic applies to ntr bickering. Some people try to use whatever reasoning they can to justify their interests, moral compass or otherwise, but I just do not see a reason for it most of the time.


Theres a difference between appreciating appearances and being attracted to appearances. 3DPD can look good the way an object looks good, for example, but they are not attractive in a sexual manner.



>for example,

"for example, a car"

Is what I meant to say there



>Those things are terrifying and should be mosaic covered at all times.

Hana's adorable, been a while since I've seen a nerdy blue, and while there's not much fighting yet at least there's a punch in the preview could be a bit better.

It's to give what little physical contact there is less impact. Before Kirakira cures would beat the fuck out of monsters with their bare hands. Now they have a magical effect between them and the violence. I had brief hope that Yell was gonna use that beam as a bludgeon, but that's too much for cures in the post kirakira world.

Hana is fun to watch and Saaya is lovely even if her lesson of 'hugoogle' it is like a decade too late. And I always like the idea that there were previous cures that failed, putting a bit more pressure on the new group that success isn't guaranteed. Even if we watching know it is.

Nobody フレ!フレ! here?





Just got around to episode 3. Are we really anticipating 8 cures (1 for each mirai crystal) in this show? Three are obvious already but I suppose with 50+ episodes and a whole corporation of antagonists the story can take its time.

>Idol Time is Money 40 to 42

Its like a whole other writing team showed up and decided to turn the story on. This would have been fatal if the build up took 40+ weeks though so its a blessing in a way. Its very unfair to do this for Shuuka after spending so much time on yumekawa for her to amount to essentially nothing but the MC label now.

Everything went as expected. Its a bit of a slap in the face but if you made it this far you know exactly what it is. At least we got some Aroma faces out of it. I'll stop samefagging now since theres nothing else to watch



I don't know, they implied there were already cures when the show started. Harry had 4 of the henshin items so I expect 4 main and maybe some odd plot extras. The villains might have some too. Or maybe once they get all 8 they'll be able to plug 2 into their things and go super cure.



I enjoy it when dark cures use the same tools as the cures. Maybe the bot will get her own transformation.



Also did nobody mention fucking Yukarin voicing that "bad girl"?

I already think she's going to get the Bibury treatment, or turned into an outright Precure.

She was the most anticipated seiyuu for a Precure in a poll years ago.

This just in. Local little girls are known to be hanging around a shady looking guy who is believed to be involved with real estate scams.

He's seen to have a child with him as well. Could this baby have anything to do with the girls, and is it being used as blackmail against them?

If you see something suspicious like this, please inform your police department.



Yeah, a young man who would be seen speaking with middle school girls, and holding baby alongside them would be arrested on spot, without questions in less than 10 minutes in real life.



>in real life.

This is banned logic here. The little girls should be arrested for black mailing him and possible kidnapping.

I'm not liking how the fighting went in episode 3. Maybe I didn't notice before, but they switched the angle to a very distant shot of the Cures punching as soon as it landed. Hope this doesn't continue.

I had to watch that great shot of Ange getting knocked into the background a couple times. It's also nice to see that old blood-soaked battlefield, the town river.

That whole fight scene felt like a shounen anime. Is this what I should be expecting from almost every older Precure? Currently watching heartcatch.

That fight was unusually well-directed. It varies a lot by episode anyway. But if you mean "fighting that's sometimes much better than you'd expect from a little girl show", then sure.

I need to learn how to mess with stuff on GIMP.


Only if your ass-powower is high enough. Same concept goes for the Build/Scrush Driver, you need a certain Hazard Level for it to work.


That's a staple of most Precure shows, and what sets it apart from the rest of the mahou shoujo genre, while still keeping the franchise kdi-friendly. FW, HC, GoPri and HaCha are the most fighty ones if you're looking for action, without including the movies.



>without including the movies

Yeah the movies have a crazy amount of fighting and with a lot of production put into it. Especially the DX movies. I was watching them like, little girls went to see this?



Why the fuck wouldn't they?

I swear to god people mistake little girls for some kind of critters these days, of course when there is cruel fight that focuses on brutality, it's a different story, but magical girls fighting should be totally up their alley.


>After 9 episodes of heartcatch

Tsubomi is a good girl and I feel a vague need to lightly bully her. Erika is best girl.



It's outside my experience. I knew they liked fighting because Precure is popular in the first place, but I didn't know they cared about it that much where the studio would put such effort into it for the movies.

The two of them work off each other well.


File: 7a83876f3a0c296⋯.jpg (445.19 KB, 1920x1080, 16:9, mpv-shot0028.jpg)


It was a fun experiment to reverse the "physical"/"mental" relationship of pink and blue, since Tsubomi is still a silly naive idiot and the dynamics go both ways. But you can really see how Erika sticks out from the others in DX.



>Tsubomi is still a silly naive idiot

I don't know how one can even come to this conclusion.

Sorry to say this, but you're watching it wrong if you think that's the case.



I should not have phrased it like it was her major character. I mean she shows those traits at times and Erika ends up as the one reacting to her, even though Erika is the clowny one.



Tsubomi has confidence problems, and a bit of a dork/socially awkward, but other than that she has a good head on her shoulders, and is reliable, so it comes off as pretty much the opposite of what you have said.

I guess I kinda get the other part of your post, as it still leads to Erika being the one who has to react to Tsubomi's "silly" moments, but that comes from her awkwardness, not her naivety.



Maybe the wrong word? I mean her lack of experience, like how she had no clue that that boy liked her.

>that boy liked her.

Theres no romance allowed in little girl anime right? Right? This is important.



Tsubomi has a crush on every boy. But nothing ever comes of it.



That is fine. I would leave if there was any time spent on the generic romance games from other generic romance series.



Tsubomi crashing on guys is a gag. Don't watch Yes/Yes555 or HaCha though.





That was such a weird situation though. A relationship beween a JC and who was simultaneously a squirrel prince, an adult man, and her teacher. I wish it had gone farther.



Oops, I meant to say, there is some, but honestly I didn't find it bad. Like in the original series Nagisa has a crush on some boy but she completely and utterly fails to confess through both seasons because she's nervous.



They kissed in the movie, precure will likely never go that far again.

buy more toys


Don't really know where else to post this but its too painful and good to forget. I had a dream I was dating Hanazono Shuuka. She was every bit as cute in my dream as she usually is in IT. We spent the whole date shopping and she prefers the discount parts of stores so that she can redesign last years products into something new and turn a profit. It hurt how cute she was and we hugged a few times which was lewd. I woke up while we were still shopping and am overcome with a bittersweet feeling.


Looking forward to watching this



I really wish I kept up with watching that when it was airing. It was so fun, but there was so much other stuff airing that I stopped 3 episodes in.


Other than PreCure and PriPara, what else is good out there in the world of youjo anime? Since I'm here forever, I might as well get acquainted.


I want to フレ!フレ! little Homare. Now that the team is assembled, how long before they figure out a combo attack?

Watching hugtto at the same time as heartcatch has made one thing very obvious. Tsubomi and Erika are much better friends than the three hugttos. These three feel somewhat forced together by hugtan.





Sometimes they do get forced together and have to become friends after the fact. These 3 don't have much chemistry but that scene where they exchanged names was the start of something. They need to go through a few more お互いピンチ.



I agree, they don't really feel like friends now. So I'm glad the next one looks to be more slice of life with the cures working together. Right now the three really need some bonding time.



One of the issues with Toei pumping out movies so fast is how the Cures have to form a team really quickly. HeartCatch actually had Cure Honey in the movie before she showed up in the series, that's how tight a schedule they run these on. While I like the bigger Cure teams, the early two-girl teams could really focus on their developing friendship.



That looks so cheap. Couldn't afford plastic?

First episode was pretty bad but the other episodes after are better fight wise. It at least took a break before fully forming the team unlike A La Mode did and that played characterization catch up throughout. Anyone picking up Huggto since that anon that was doing it before apparently is dropping subbing it?

Trying to catch-up to all the series since I only got on at around the 13th iteration with harry potter magic. Should I watch it in order or skip to the better seasons? Kind of wish someone would help pick up the pace with Rilu Rilu Fairilu since that is still stuck on Season 1 and it's going to get a 3rd season.



Maho was a pretty weak season. I suggest starting with Go! Princess and if you like that move to Heartcatch. GoPrin has the best animation of all the seasons.

Hugtto is looking better than the last two seasons, maybe that'll get some subbers to pick it up.

Lulu is voiced by Yukarin, which brings certain speculations. But holy hell Lulu has a body that hasn't been seen on a cure since Fresh. She'd really stand out from the current younger looking cast. If she is some kind of robot, maybe she'll get a new body to fit in with them should that happen.

The majority of the show looked like ass, it's sad how ridiculously people overrate something that has a select few extraorinarily well done scenes.

Not all of the 48 episodes are gonna have the same high production. But I disagree that most of the show looks bad. Every three episodes would have some great fights scenes and between those it was still good. Even ep4 of Hugtto that has been praised so much was directed by the series director of Go Princess. Hope he does more episodes in the future.

Which precure do you think has better overall animation than Go Princess?
