SPACE IN YOUR HAND Edition
==IT'S MOTHERFUCKING SPACE TIME==
Little more than a month until Fagtto dies, but enough of that, Star Twinkle got a shitton of info.
>Naruse Aimi (singing voice for Ichigo Hoshimiya's mom, actual idol) is Hikaru Hoshina/Cure Star, a middleschooler with lots of imagination and a curious spirit who loves constellations and space. Also has a catchphrase.
>Konomi Kohara (Kukuri in Mahoujin Guruguru, Kasumi Nomura in Asobi Asobase) is Lala Hagorumo/Cure Milky, an alien from planet Summern (sp?), 13 years old in earth years but treated as an adult in her home planet. Apparently came in a rocket along with fairies Fuwa and Prunce (romanization according to the site) in search of the Legendary Warriors, Precure.
>Kiyono Yasuno (sang the 2nd OP to CCS Clear Card, that's the most relevant thing I could put in) is Elena Amamiya/Cure Soleil, nicknamed "The Sun of MIhoshi"
>Mikako Komatsu (Marika from Moretsu Pirates, also a fuckload of other roles) is Madoka Kaguya/Cure Selene, daughter of a politician and a world-class pianist, your typical yamato nadeshiko character. Her nickname is "The Moon of Mihoshi".
Fuwa (voiced by Hina Kino) is the main fairy that somehow can summon warp holes, how Lala came to Earth.
Prunce (voiced by Hiroyuki Yoshino) is apparently a fairy that doubles as an UFO and has tentacles.
The items this time around are the Star Twinkle Book and the Henshin Star Color Pens along with the Star Color Pendants.
The story also involves gathering the 12 Princess Star Color Pens and protect them from the Note Raiders.
Opening is "Kirari☆彡Star☆Twinkle Precure" by Rie Kitagawa (GoPri ED1, Mahou OP1&2), ending is "PaPePiPu☆Romantic" by Chiha Yoshitake (doesn't have a wiki page apparently but a few YT videos)
Director is Hiroaki Miyamoto, known for the movie One Piece GOLD; Writer is Isao Murayama from the AllStars DX movies and a few episodes from assorted Precure series, mostly from Mahou (20 eps); Yuki Hayashi does music for the third year in a row.
There we go, that was a lot of stuff ripped straight from the website.
I can't wait to see Star's autism and lewds because shes pretty good looking. Either Milky or Selene are going to be fun police. I'm betting on Selene being the fun police given her character and matching kneesocks.
>twintails+single stocking+bare shoulders+exposed back+exposed armpits for pink
>cutest girl is a legal loli
>writer is the guy behind most of mahou tsukai the best season, not the 3DPD hag with a yaoi/trap/pretty boy fetish from fagtto
<i can already tell that soleil won't be popular such is the yellow curse, yet she will get a lot of screentime thanks to the color of her skin, like it or not the jewish west already got their hands on anime and they will push the shit out of her
<selene will hopefully be a reika/saaya 2.0, but since saaya was a literal angel she'll be bitchy and annoying like karen instead
Please don't fuck this up, i've never felt embarrassed watching precure or any other mahou shoujo anime, but hugtto broke me with the faggot frog, faggot brother, the progressive themes and overly lesbian precure duo, maybe it's the massive "age gap" and the fact that one of them isn't even human, but their relationship feels forced, mirai and liko's relationship was pure.
Can't wait for space 'tism too.
Also the fanart has already begun, and they're really liking Star.

>That last image
It's a reference to this meme.
>one of the fairies has tentacles
Thank god, a standard plot again. Collect the X Y's and don't let Z get them. It keeps things ticking along with a clear victory condition. Hugtto was bad there.
>13 years old in earth years but treated as an adult in her home planet
No words needed.
I'm still worried that they will use the alien theme to make a point about xenophobia because it's 2019.
>I'm still worried that they will use the alien theme to make a point about xenophobia because it's 2019.
I really want to hope Fagtto's shit was Junichi Sato's fault or whoever the writer was, and not Toei trying to push shit.
I've been hearing this a few times already. Sachiko's voice hits the right spots.
>my post got deleted
Cure nigger's still pretty cute though
Can we get a good kamen rider story this time or will it just be lukewarm kamen rider?
I like her design much more than Etoile. I hope she makes it onto the team in february so we can celebrate the first african american precure during black history month.
As long as Shirakura exists, probably not. Having a hard time caring about Zi-O save for the .5 episodes, and apparently 16.5 will be the last one so there goes that good thing. You'd expect the part about the Heisei Riders to be more relevant, but aside from Decade not many of the others got as much of a spotlight or influence in the plot.
Too many writers (and not even the right ones, you'd think someone would've brought Butcher back for the Gaim episodes) and overuse of CG (the Time Mazine and the one-note toy gimmicks, mostly), it ain't looking too good.
With that, Build's latter half, LuPat existing fuck phantom thieves as a concept and Fagtto being a trainwreck aside from Episode 15 (managing to fuck up even something as basic as the crossover episode with Nagisa and Honoka) it was an awful year for Super Hero Time, and the start of the end of the Heisei era.
She's more of a Cure Mutt. I'm retarded and I forgot to put it in the OP, but Elena has around 6 siblings and works at a flower shop called "Sonrisa".
Shame, they could've gone for the gyaru approach.
She isn't a gyaru after all? What does the official material say specifically?
I like the simple outfits, hugs got too cluttered. Star is fucking cute, can't wait to see what kazuma muramasa and kanyapyi do with her.
So I found more info on the gimmicks already.
>there are 12 Star Princess Color Pens, each representing a Zodiac constellation. They not only unlock an attack for the Precure to use (Taurus unlocks Star Punch, Leo unlocks Milky Shock, Libra unlocks Soleil Shoot,
SagittariusCapricorn unlocks Selene Arrow) but also give something to feed Fuwa in the Twinkle Book. Yes, we're doing this shit again for the fourth time in a row, enjoy the Cure Fuwa leaks by episode 2, Toei you retards. Also Fuwa changes forms according to the Princess Pen used, so there's that but it's probably going to get as much use as Haa-chan's forms.
>The Star Pendant is used for the actual Precure transformation, as well as the Princess Star Color Pen attacks. By sticking the Pen into the Pendant, you charge it up, draw a thing in the air and make the pen touch the center of the pendant and that completes the henshin sequence. The attacks work in a similar manner, but just sticking the Princess Pen into the Pendant.
Here's a translation of the description on the website.
>Elena is a third year student who shines just like the sun and has a wonderful smile. She's very popular and is nicknamed "The Sun of Mihoshi Town". Her family owns a flower shop in the shopping district known as "Sonrisa" and often looks after her 6 little brothers when her parents are off working at the store. She transforms into the Precure of the Sun, Cure Soleil.
>Sonrisa (Spanish for smile)
>Soleil (French for sun and contains "sol" which is Spanish for sun)
I'm betting her family is from a Central American or South American country. We will never know for sure though since it will be far removed from her character and she will act as Japanese as the non-alien girls. I don't want her character to be wrapped up stupid political screeching so I pray this is the case.
Yeah I would bet she's half south/central american.
>We will never know for sure though since it will be far removed from her character and she will act as Japanese as the non-alien girls.
I hope her whole family talks like pic related.
How long until you all start to hate the new season? I'm betting 2 months.
Just after the tranny faggot joins the cast,
<still almost no art
If they have to to that again, then I hope I get at least something out of it this time. Lewds or at least something funny but that faggot got neither, not even that much art in general.
>writer of maho
Me, too. Maho was good up until the quarter way mark, then everyone stopped watching it around half way. I'm not sure what happened.
Yeah but it had the best last episode in all of precure so who really gives a shit
According to an anon in a previous thread, DBS happened. Toriyama bitched about it's low quality.
It's furikake. Put it on your rice and look at the pretty picture while eating, just like American cereal boxes.
I was trying to get hyped for a PreCure that is simple, and might work after the trainwreck bullshit Hugtto's turned into, but seems like they just can't keep it simple anymore.
Anyways, it can only be an improvement over current season, unless they try to focus too much on propaganda shit yet again.
>but seems like they just can't keep it simple anymore.
For the gimmicks you mean? Not really that complicated, it's your standard toku gimmick procedure. Also it has been stated that henshin sequences will include 'singing and dancing' to make them 'more easy to understand' and now you understand why the cast this time around has actually some experience related to that.
Fuck, I hate the talking during henshin. I blame glitter force for this shit.
I'm betting never. As long as the story is not a copy of Hugtto it will be good.
>'singing and dancing'
This could be good. I'm one of the kids who would learn the lyrics to stuff like this and practice it
We symphogear now.
Why does everyone hate Hugtto? I haven't watched it since right before Emiru and Lulu became cures, but it seemed to be well received early on.
I was planning on going back and finishing it once the season ended, which is what I end up doing for most Precure shows, but all the shit its getting makes me wonder if its even worth it.
It's just how Precure fans are. They always hate the currently airing show towards the end and hail the next as the coming of Cure Jesus.
Pay them no mind. It's a good season if you like creative directing.
Hugtto has been going through a bit of an identity crisis, Sometimes it follows the tried and true Precure spirit of cute girls protecting the people and eventually beating the bad guys for good. Sometimes the girls and the rest of the cast are genuinely enjoyable. The bad guys this time have a strong on going theme too. The problem is precisely "sometimes" though. At times Hugtto has brought up some highly political themes such as crossdressing boys, methods of childbirth, and non-heterosexual romance that anons are highly critical of. Regardless of each anons individual views the only common ground is that Precure isn't the place for such topics at the cost of skipping or rushing through the more interesting material in the story.
One anon in the last thread made a good post on this topic that asked everyone else to look at the glass half full instead of half empty. I think this anon is right. A year or two from now we could be screaming about wanting Emiruru back and how Hana was a great pink. I'd rather look back on Hugtto for what it did right than what we were perhaps overly critical of. Yes its absolutely worth your time to watch.
Because it nosedived right after emiru and ruru became cures.
Emiruru is basically a single person and they hardly interact with the other girls, even in fights, notice how their transformation is separate and their finisher requires the other three to step out, emiru has only talked to homare about two times and ruru tends to talk loudly without addressing homare or saaya, as if they don't exist.
The gay henri/masato shit was forced and meaningless, it was just propaganda for the sake of propaganda, masato also physically hurt his grandfather over his gay boyfriend and his sister's lesbian robot, keep in mind that respecting your elders is a thing in japan and he's obviously the patriarch of their rich family which means this dumbass got disowned, and with his gay boyfriend no longer being able to rake in the cash with professional skating they'll have to either suck dick to survive or try their hand at twitch-whoring, both of which are equally shameful, and with emiru being a lesbian the true aisaki bloodline effectively ends with them, poor grandpa, so this dumb shit was obviously the work of a foreigner most likely from israel, i bet the writer and animators were forced at gunpoint to include it.
Hana, the main character, didn't get enough character development, we were shown that she acted overly cheery and clumsy because she wanted to start over after getting bullied in her previous school, but then she goes back to being gloomy and insecure, she legitimately cannot stop sulking in a corner while her friends have fun (with the most notorious examples of this behavior being the pool and halloween episodes), the worst part is that they did NOTHING with this, we could've had an arc about a dark/corrupted hana that gets purified, and it would lead into hana's ultimate form ala ultra happy/forever lovely, but no, she has PTSD flashbacks all the time even though she has a loving family, friends that truly care about her and even a suitor, this is most likely why the next episode will feature hana in a wedding dress, the writer can't do shit in 6 episodes so she'll just throw away her entire character (you can do anything! you can be anything! except not really), pair her up with a man and have him "fix" hana.
Saaya is a literal angel, she has no real flaws and is set for life, this is what hana should have been.
Homare has a bright future, but she probably won't be able to handle harry's rejection and thus will give up and be unhappy for the rest of her life.
Kotori didn't get to be a cure, yet the gay blonde faggot did, what a waste, she could have offered emotional support to hana.
There's also hugtan's fluctuating power level, how come they lost against george in the future, when she can summon cures from all over the world and is most likely also some sort of goddess? She was a threat as a baby, imagine just how immensely powerful she'll be as a teen/adult.
Ignore this >>894859 fucker, he's probably a twitter tranny who got into precure with hugtto's episode 19 and can't understand why anyone would dislike sjw shit in their anime.
It's bad on all of what I consider to be the fundamentals of fights, relationships, and relatable life/problems. That's not to say it's never good, but the average episode is not. I'm also not that into many of the stylistic choices (designs, monsters, music, etc). Then it has multiple "I mean come on, it's 2018!" episodes.
I do like a lot of things in it and it's been an interesting season, it's just unsatisfying and sometimes obnoxious.

I'm a NatSoc who doesn't let politics color my opinion of anime. If you want to bitch and moan about how Hugtto is literally jewish, >>>/pol/
>I'm a NatSoc
Come on now.
Politics did shit up hugtto though, this is not grasping at straws, you can clearly see that the west got their hands all over hugtto since the last two seasons also featured trannies/crossdressers but as creepy villains, henri isn't the first male cure either, there's the joke cure gorilla and cure fire.
Stop trying to make it sound like there's nothing wrong in the show and it's just "people hate it because".
> I haven't watched it since right before Emiru and Lulu became cures, but it seemed to be well received early on.
Well, that's when the drop starts happening. While Emiru and Ruru are objectively the best part of the show, at least in civilian form, it just doesn't translate as well with them being precure. Part of the drama on them was "well shit, there's only one Driver and only one of us can be Cure", which was interesting on its own, then Hugtan's adult soul or something shits out a driver out of the ether. It would've been something actually creative if they had to take turns or something. Also, let's talk about how Ruru being a robot is rarely brought up since then, only for gags instead of having her be an ally who can fight without needing to transform.
Then the FW episode happened, which was weird because aside of the Guitar Oni duo getting their guitar rifles not much was really done, Nagisa and Honoka were kinda there just to teach "hey, it's normal to have a fight while you're friends, you pair of autists", even their transformation sequence was cut short, the GBF collab managed to do better justice to FW.
When it's executed like shit it isn't. Masato's existance is retarded, his excuse to antagonise Emiru is retarded and would've been much more understandable if he proposed that she's wasting her potential with the guitar and friends and silly shit but we already had the fag doing that beforehand so they wrote it like a grandfather. Henri just out of fucking nowhere, without development, becomes a cure because writers forget that you can have an ally without necessarily making him one. What's even better, absolutely nothing's gained from it.
Now I haven't watched Huggto just like any cure series, it's on my backlog but I wouldn't be surprised if gay characters are more common in future series. Propaganda or not, love is often a theme in mahou shoujo series and they usually somewhat reflect the real world in.
Now if Hana has to choose to save the future while ensuring that she'll die young without getting to see her child grown up. I'm down. But they'll wuss out and say "The future is open!".
>EmiRuru hair service
Delicious. Along with the new years celebration. This should have been a whole episode by itself.
>Wall of plot after it
Why wasn't this split into like 4 episodes? The future that led humanity to ruin could have been one episode by itself. The revelation that Hana was the bad guys wife in the future could have spanned like 4 episodes. Hana being reminded of her past and how she overcame that toge power back then (which is still not explained) would be another. The invasion and all the ooshimaeda could have been a long battle especially with the bad hamsters returning. This episode had so many flashes of brilliance from the Precure past. The story had all the makings of an instant classic. Its decent as is but it could have been awesome. Worst of all is
>final battle is next week.
I'm happy because its the climax and plot is happening but simultaneously deeply disappointed.
I like the story a lot and it deserved more time, for sure. It all came in short bursts that rushed by. Several episodes really needed to be 2 parters, like the one where they went to Harry-town (it was just nonsense). I was also really hoping to have the end arc be multiple episodes in the future with the other cures involved.
I'm glad that it got better again, though. The character stuff has been very good.
Suddenly final! I miss back in Heartcatch when the last five episodes or so were a running battle on-board a space station over a ruined earth.
Or in Fresh where the last five episodes were Precure liberating a sci-fi dystopia. I was dreaming of that kind of ending for Hugtto because the setup was perfect for it. Alas, not so much.
The problem is that the movie tie-in episode did this already. In a way it spoiled the climax we are now witnessing. Imagine if Traum and Ruru had been building their own stories each seeking happiness with each other in different ways (future vs eternal today). We could get a wonderful battle between just those two. Emiru and her brother have a similar theme regarding music. Homare and Harry could work as Homare might want Hugtan to stay as a baby so Harry notices her. Saaya fighting with herself (dark precure opportunity) to be just like mom or her own person. Hana with her past, present and future. Some of these have happened in some way as standalone but not under a single bad guy take over arc that would really drive home the fure fure for the future message.
What is this, Heartcatch?
There mere fact that it brings out this kind of passion makes it an instant classic.

She's had pink hair. Maybe she knew in advance.
How can Star be so lewd?
>There mere fact that it brings out this kind of passion makes it an instant classic.
You can say the same about stuff like SAO and other (particularly, Western) trainwrecks.
Personally I'm glad Hugtto found its footing, perhaps a bit too late in its run (didn't the same happen with Maho, where it was a bunch of nothing with a SUDDENLY PLOT right at the end?), but calling it a 'classic' might be too exaggerated.
Pink is a lewd color to begin with.
The theme sounds good so far.

Some Cures deserve the abuse!
>pregnant loli mother being aroused while my penis is tangling with her growing fetus girl
Yes but exposed leg, back, neck, armpit and twintails before airing is a whole other level.
Oh yes, I was only remarking on her lewd bonus on top of all that. But Star is so good you can practically see ero waves rising off of her. Same designer as Suite too, I guess he likes pinks with gigantic twintails.
>same designer as suite
So that's why star gives off lewd enjo kosai/gyaru vibes as well i can't explain it well, but they both look like popular girls that are easily approachable, if you can afford them that is, the only difference is that hibiki leans more towards being beautiful rather than cute.
Hibiki's both a beautiful and a cute Oni.
That's also the same designer as Dokidoki.
Hibiki looks very expensive. Is it worth working yourself into an early grave to have her waiting at home for you?
She's my least favorite pink actually.
Those twintails are gigantic. I hope she smacks people with the ends of them.
No, not when there are many other pinks to choose from.
After catching up with Aifure I went back to watching MaxHeart. The Baldez battle at episode 22 to 24 is great.
Can someone edit the erogenous zone arrows from that reisen picture onto Star's three view portrait?
Which Pink is the most cost effective? Mana and her big dreams are right out. Miyuki is beautiful and dumb, if she never understands how far her looks could take her she'd be fine with a working-class life. Haruka's family is new money and she's gotten used to being around rich and famous people, so not likely.
Hibiki grew up in a mansion with world class musician parents, so no. Nozomi seems humble, just wants to eat pancakes and teach kids, but no her last boyfriend was a fucking king so nevermind. Tsubomi has big science/space dreams that you'd have to support (she'd probably want you to give half your income to charity too). Love is too hot and will end up needing a pop celebrity lifestyle. Nagisa's not so high class as others but she seems like she'd never be satisfied either. Hana doesn't have a lot going for her and likes to live through other people, she could be good as long as mental health costs don't add up later.
I'm going with Saki. Saki has no great looks or ambitions and grew up working in a bakery. She would be fine with some kids and a small family business.
What about Lovely? Assuming she doesn't use you as a boxing glove.
I haven't watched HaCha yet. What do you think?
She's going to beat your ass, then ride you dry. All with a smile on her face.
Pretty much this >>896588. You will need to budget for your medical expenses. If you can survive that then everything else will be fine. In a way this is the best choice since your body will be paying most of it directly as opposed to your checkbook.
They don't look slutty.
Plebian taste, i'd become a criminal for her sake.
Mana canonically married an average guy so she's not out of the question, miyuki is dumb as bricks so she'd remain loyal as long as you let her publish her story books, haruka also chased after a prince like nozomi so she's a no go.
Tsubomi looks like the kind that works herself to death and barely pays attention to you, she'd be a bad wife anyway. Love wouldn't even give you the time of the day. Nagisa has smelly feet. Hana is just a terrible choice, are you not keeping up with hugtto? She's george's wife and she's giving him shit even though his only crime was loving her so much he'd stop time for her sake because she dies pretty young, also emotional baggage, she just can't be happy, and the one time she was she ended up dying.
>Saki has no great looks or ambitions and grew up working in a bakery
Rude, she's cuter than nagisa.
She's not overly violent, just hotblooded and almost as dumb as miyuki, she'd treat you like a king right until the moment you piss her off.
tl;dr all the pinks are either unattainable or would make bad wives, pic related are the only girls who would make excellent wives and mothers
You're getting precure magic on your dick and you're gonna like it.
>tl;dr all the pinks are either unattainable or would make bad wives, pic related are the only girls who would make excellent wives and mothers
That's agreeable, but the discussion only involved pinks. Also
Weeaboo or not involved, you should know that the Osakan daughter of Shadowmoon makes one of the best wives in the franchise.
I know that doujin.
>Rude, she's cuter than nagisa.
Agreed, but it's not so much that it would be a problem.
>pic related are the only girls who would make excellent wives and mothers
Ah, I see you accidentally left one out. Here, glad to help.
>only girls who would make excellent wives and mothers
>Not posting Honoka
You had one job.
>until the moment you piss her off.
I hope you agree on the number of kids to have although disagreeing might be nice too.
5 picture limit, sorry.
Honoka is a lesbian, sadly.
She is a good girl with refined tastes.
> one of the best wives in the franchise
As much as I enjoy characters like her, I like the girlier ones (basically all pinks and most yellows) as wife material.
The Smiles are so damn pretty. Shame Saaya was the only huggto to get close to their beauty.
Saaya was traditional, collected/cool beauty (like Smile's Beauty), and while that's great, not really my type.
But yeah, other Hugttos aren't really pretty.
You do have watch out with those good, refined girls.
I don't think Yayoi would make a great wife, her goal of being a mangaka might take a toll on her. At least you could cozy up and watch toku/mecha shows together while she's not worrying about deadlines.
She fits what I look for in a wife.
Hugtto was a big miss in subtle fanservice, but I'm already drooling for Star Twinkle.
No hot sweating tomboy again this season.
I don't really like tomboys (unless they are very genki/short/fang type), but yeah, not having one for such a long time is not a nice thing to do.
Sometimes it's hard to tell if it's tomboys are just that the smiles are so perfect. Wasn't very fond of Homare, and she's sporty I guess.
Why are the Precures such massive sluts? They get some of the most depraved porn I have seen.
If you must sexualize precure, only do so in pure wholesome fashion.
It's not my fault they are drug addicted sluts hooked on abortion orgasms.
Besides from that, also the fact that it's been the biggest magical girl franchise of the last decade, and magic is basically the device to bring it. Be it tentacles, overt drug abuse, insects or whatever you prefer.
I just want some damn cure dom but it's all them doing lines off cocks and going retarded.
This exists in any form? If so I didn't know I needed this until now.
How long before it starts airing and where did you get this screenshot? That is anything but subtle since its a few centimeters from a panchira.
Definitely fine too.
>This exists in any form?
There is actually quite a bit, but it rarely hits the mark I'm looking for.
Black precure looks sexy. And she is Yellow - the most most lewd type. I hope there will be some good cosplay JAV.
>where did you get this screenshot
The latest all stars PV.
I need to see her civilian form before i pass judgment, i hope she looks like the brown girl from that shitty cooking manga.
>another episode where Hana does nothing, and even gives up
How many episodes left of this shit?>>897457
Hana still has to solo the boss, then an epilogue.
This is the best its been in a while. All the saved adult characters showing up and fighting the battle for the Cures. Their story is more interesting than Saaya for example. Also we finally saw the cures fight without the attack calls. Homare and Emiruru had some new ones too.
I'm looking forward to Twinkle. I hope I can end up liking it.
It's the first time I've liked the designs of ALL the cures, even the Pink.
Space is space, you have to be a massive raging faggot to not like space themes in your chinese cartoons for kids.
The staff doesn't look like it's full of pretentious faggots like Ikuhara is and with Maho writer hopefully it'll be the good kind of stupid fun.
The only things that are iffy is another plot-important baby fairy and the fucking pink voice. Seriously why can't they go back to hiring actual experienced VAs for the pinks?
Never another Nana level pink, those are expensive.
I know and it sucks. I miss when the Cures weren't voiced mostly by literally whos.
Toei has more or less figured out the bare minimum cash necessary to make a Cure series and isn't going to budge an inch from it.
Hana's VA has a good voice, I just don't like how she usually talks like she's trying to rile up a crowd of preschoolers. But Star's doesn't even sound good. If Japan has a surplus of anything it's low-rent idols. They couldn't find one better?
>has to solo the boss
You mean she has been given the solo, but nobody cares, since she has been depicted as incompetent for 40 episode straight now, and even gave up right away this time? What a main character, what a Pink!
I certainly didn't want to see that disgusting male hugging and random guys stealing the spotlight and saving the day, yet again. While Hana still does absolutely nothing, like always.
Also, why are those two guys THIS hard into Harry to begin with is beyond me, he literally didn't have to do anything all this time, but to step up before them just once, and they all became healed.
Traum was the only one with a decent entrance, and reason to fight.
>It's not how I remember Precure being!
I'm one of the anons who always really liked this season, but damn the action is some of the worst. I know Toei had to cut down on it, but it sucks.
>The real heroes show up.
>Everyone solves everything through hugs and ah yes, this is what I watch youjo for.
>Hana shows she is still depressed.
>Good directing with the images in the final boss sphere.
>Wait, I get it now. Hana doesn't know what she wants in life like everyone else because she's actually destined to be a great wife and mother. That's her actual dream for the future, she just doesn't know it yet. She wants to fure fure her husband and daughter like a real cheerleader.
I like it. These types of themes are things we've never seen in Precure before.
And I hate you for liking it.
>Everyone solves everything through hugs and ah yes, this is what I watch youjo for
You mean 3 guys. One of them (which is fagboy) #2 wearing a skintight bodysuit and being extremely gay for Harry?
All the while the PreCure are sidelined, and useless like usual, and now Hana didn't even earn the right to have the final episode dedicated, but she gets it.
It is just horrible for anyone who likes the Cures, and cute little girls at that, and especially for ones who care about the main girl.
Hopefully we will have a pink lead next season, and I can forget about this Propaganda Cure with extreme faggotry, propaganda and male character focus.
Having conflicts solved by emotional appeals and love are one of the good qualities of these shows, yes. But what Precure does better is combine love with overwhelming and spectacular violence. That's what I watch for.
Someone gets what Precure is actually about.
Not seen before doesn't mean it's good or that it couldn't have been made better.
Could've grabbed the Zi-O route where the main character is as well responsible for the world's destruction in the future, but he's made aware of it earlier and tries to change his fate one way or the other.
Should've grabbed the sword, Hana you faggot.
One more week until Fagtto dies and two more for Cure Fourze. And three more for a fourth dino Sentai.
Everyone became a Precure and furefure'd until they won. Cue your screaming about gay men cures and such, it doesnt matter at all since Kotori got to be a cure. Doesn't seem like we will get a proper resolution to the underlying HanaxBadguy romance. During the fight there was a scene with Traum and I assume the bad guy in a room together. Was that a flashback or some other universe? Also when did Hana pick up something to give back to the bad guy and ultimately what happened to him?
>Was that a flashback or some other universe?
I saw it as present timeline George and Traum.
Hana's dad is fucking massive.
Kotori got a super generic magical girl form and she still looks ten times better than pastel pink tenga egg-chan, poor girl got the bad genes, no wonder she's depressed all the time. I pity george, dealing with hana's random mood swings must be a pain. but the pussy game ridiculous
They thought that making it a super confusing meta shit is somehow good idea. Haven't seen such a sketchy, low tier writing in PreCure yet, not even at its worst.
That's reassuring to me. I have not watched the last few series yet and I was afraid that this was normal.
This song is so much better with Yukari Tamura/Nao. Feels like something that was missing has been restored. It will eat me inside that we will NEVER EVER get an animated version with them included in it.
Should I use my dick?
That's a dangerous amount of peace signs.
You can clearly differ poor precure from the slut ones. I am surprised to see double peace from Himari, though.
Always bet on Haruharu.
>Yayoi, the one whose literal transformation is Cure Peace, doesn't do a peace sign
I'm not surprised by it being shovelware but we've been suffering this since Fresh.But still, it's infuriating how Bamco and co. treat their SHT games.
>Super Sentai is on the same shovelware shitpile as Precure
>Kamen Rider has been oscillating between beat 'em ups and now Gundam VS/Naruto clones
The size and scale Junichi is able to portray is refreshing to say the least. Also, Big Guy Papa is best Precure. I loved it. You gotta fure fure at your screen to get maximum enjoyment. I know you toge anons will always find something to bitch about, but whatever.
>You've met me at a very strange time in my life.
Grandmas, Hana's dad and Traum deserve a spinoff. Shame they don't fight and instead do the boring furefure shit, faggots were a given but I just couldn't care for the show after the grandma episode.
But don't worry, since it's hinted at that DBS will continue expect Star Twinkle to be awful as well, thanks Toriyama you nigger.
>I know you toge anons will always find something to bitch about, but whatever.
I'm sorry I don't have a high opinion on a show with a bland-ass main cast, watered down fighting and blatant faggotry along with misunderstanding what Precure is about. You can go back to MAL, cuckchannel or whatever shithole you came from where your taste will be lauded as progressive and upvoted.
Anon, I agree with you on all those points. I'm just a Junichi fangirl who can see the good points, too.
>The size and scale Junichi is able to portray is refreshing to say the least.
Have you seen any other Precures?
Star's armpits and chest are ready for lewd.
Making everyone into a cure for the finale attack was pretty cool even if I didnt post much about it. It would be the kind of scene where we get little reminders of each of their character arcs. Although such a thing would fill whole episodes with such a big cast.
Of course. I'm talking about direction again, anon. I will never not praise the direction in Hugtto. This is stuff that should be from Eva.
The transforms looked really cute, and I love the preview music.
>Hana's dad is fucking massive.
Its both lewd and scary when you think about what he did to Hana's mom. They would probably have more kids if he didn't destroy her into pregnancy the two times they did lewd things.
Is there a limit to how many we can pick?
I feel a bit ashamed that it took me this long to get the joke.
Precure threads cretainly have the strangest OC.
I've made more OC for this Precure than any other. I hope next one can inspire me just as much.
Sign of the Emiru was one of the best ones. Arguably Hugtto has great opportunity for fan content, especially with so much of Hana's life left open for the audience to interpret.

It also took the most work. I was going to do another when she and Ruru got their guitars using "Thor (The Powerhead)", but I never got around to it. I took a small break from Precure around then, too, so I really missed striking when the iron was hot.
I think it's crazy that we were memeing her as the Heavy Metal Loli, Daughter of Odin and then it turns out she rocks out in her spare time on an electric guitar. She and Ruru were seriously the best part of the show and I wish they had their own season with just the two of them.
>I wish they had their own season with just the two of them.
I want Emiruru with Kotori and Cure Tomorrow in the future fighting to bring idol rock to the people. Why is Kotori there? I don't know, fell in the time rift with them.
Honestly it's one of the best parts of the thread. Like something extra to the discussion of the shows and the big brother shows, speaking of I'm almost caught up with Zi-O and will start Ryusouger, so expect more clockposting and dinoposting alongside UCHUU KITAAAAAA. and the franchise in general. You've done good, but hopefully you won't be the only one inspired to do OC.
Just rock really, the idol part really hindered the potential of both Emiru and Ruru. I mean if they tried to make an "even boys can be
faggotsprincesses" they could've also gone with "even little girls can be heavy metal". Also that way we could get something more powerful in the OST, Yasuharu Takanashi needs to come back.
I've always found it incredibly weird that never once Toei had tried siblings being Cures. Either they're artificial, or they're teased, or it's just a one-off. It can't be that hard, can it? Have sisters that bond with each other, occasionally fight, all that.
YouTube embed. Click thumbnail to play.
Or metal, sure. Ruru would have insane technical skills and Emiru is a source of fury. They would be legendary.
His style of happy miraculous power metal was such a perfect fit for Precure. I think even more than the 1st gen music (which I like more when it comes to battle music, but this is still a better spiritual match).
Think I'll actually watch the new Sentai. I always liked the dino ones.
That must have been a weird scene when Emiru found present day Traum and explained to him what she wanted.
That was a complicated epilogue episode. Star showed up which implies shes in the same universe as the Hugtto's and is stronger than Hana right off the bat. I'm so excited for her autism and her voice is cute. The flash forward was expected and ending on Hana giving birth is the strangest of all. Obviously the father is the once bad guy who didnt arrive in time. We got to see the future of the main cast though. Big Emiru looked hilariously disproportional, like they took the young Emiru head and stuck it on a cardboard cutout. Tiny Ruru is a miracle of the universe. Homare and Saaya did exactly what they said. Hana's dad lost muscle which is an expected but sad ending. Kotori is a teacher. Skater boy is some kind of choreographer or something and still as gay as ever. The second half of the episode was a mixed bag of good and odd that pretty well fit Hugtto as a whole.
Somehow despite all my previous complaints about battles, characters, bizarre and odd storylines, I still loved this show and its cast enough to cry my eyes out at the train scene. What a complicated feeling to initially enjoy, whine and complain, be confused, cannot wait for it to end, and somehow still love it once it does end. Hugtto did some things differently than past precures and stirred up quite the conversation but overall it still managed to best easily 50% of the seasonal anime that aired in 2018 through to now. ありがと、はな.
Star Twinkle starts next week right? Next Sunday cannot arrive fast enough.
Generally agreed. It was a strange and special Precure that will linger in my head.
I'm just glad it's over, i won't miss anyone this time around, Heartcatch and Happiness Charge left me devastated when i realized that i won't hear Erika and Hime's angelic shrill voices ever again.
>ending on Hana giving birth is the strangest of all.
I thought it was quite beautiful, but kind of awkward for a youjo anime. I felt like cheering for Hana, with Kimi to tomodachi playing and her narrating how hard it is to be an adult and how much you have to work hard made me choke up. It's as if the values present in all youjo anime were made to help girls in their time of giving birth, and this is the only one brave enough to point it out directly. But then again, what the fuck, this is for little girls.
Really fits with Hugtto as a whole. This was the strangest Precure to ever exist and I won't soon forget it. Sasuga this maniac.
I didn't think about this before, but I wonder if the idea is that bad timeline Hana alrighted herself.
Problem with Hugtto was not the ending, but the stuff between.
That may be it. Maybe she dies during childbirth, leading her husband down the path he went, or maybe it was Post childbirth depression and she an hero's. In any case, she couldn't fure fure with her friends to get through it like in this timeline.
She seriously seems like she actually has manic depression or something due to an inferiority complex over not being the Nono Hana she wanted to be in life, and only in the proper timeline could she make something out of herself through the fure fure, which also saved her. Even in the first episode, the first thing she does is cut her hair because she's dissatisfied with who she is. She's trying to change herself, to not give in to despair, but even in the 3rd to last episode she seems like she's going to give up, if not for her friends. She very well could have died in childbirth if not for them.
There might be some subtle shit in this that we missed because we were too busy talking about gay fags.
Regardless of what SatoJun's onahole right here >>902206 believes I think it's more of a problem of sloppy execution. Going through the main plot, you'd think that the reveal of Hana being the big villain's wife would be presented earlier, or even the concept of time travel would have more weight on it. For example, what would exactly be the divergent point of it? If George (or any of the time
jackerstravelers) had already gone through the bad timeline, wouldn't they actually be aware that something changed it? And it that happened there should've been an even bigger villain, trying to prevent changes from it and fooling the others into doing his will. Was grabbing the sword of not actually important? If not, why bother? If yes why not have it be more prominent and reappear? Did Hana's backstory out of fucking nowhere matter?
Then there's the minor plot stuff that I feel I haven't point out yet: Saaya and Homare's motivations remain the same since their character conflicts were solved half a show ago, Emiru and Ruru don't really do much after joining the team (personally the grandfather should've been the main source of conflict for Emiru instead of her brother, or at least give Masato something that's a better source of drama than 'girls can't') and Emiru's hard rock gets downgraded to shitty poprock, then there's secondary characters that feel like they should've done more (case in point: the first villain trio, Kotori, grandmas, the only person that showed romantic interest in Hana prior to the George reveal) and their time was cut short for the fags. Then there's the production stuff that pissed me off but I've already repeated myself long enough. Also look at all those wasted designs by the end of the show, fuck you Fagtto.
Pic unrelated, but shilling Tokusatsu GaGaGa's live action adaptation since I'm at it. Fun start.
>the first thing she does is cut her hair
Didn't she do that in the last episode or was that a flashback?
>Alternate timeline Hana grabs the sword, exacts revenge on her bullies, and abuses Criasu
This sounds too good. I think the sword scene was to set the tone of hugs over violence for this Precure.
>Alternate timeline Hana grabs the sword, exacts revenge on her bullies, and abuses Criasu
Not a bad idea, but I thought that somehow picking up the Sword of Precure and using it would've resulted in a battle-hardened Hana, maybe at the cost of her vitality or something, and what actually causes her to die while birthing Hugtan. Hugtan goes back in time from prevent her from picking it up, hoping that would result in her living.
>Didn't she do that in the last episode
That was a call back to the first.
It was also part of the whole message of the show. Be the kind of person you want to be and dakishimete your future.
The bit with Cure Star was jarring. I hope there's no more crossover in Star Twinkle. The shows should be isolated from each other, otherwise it devalues everyone and takes away from the feeling that it's all on this one group of girls and their associated critters to save the world. It's fine to have the crossover films and then never acknowledge them.
Hugtto should have spent WAY more time on Hana. Her backstory with bullying and being a nobody, her suffering, and being the goddamned dead wife of the main villain and the mom of the show's baby. They could have cut anything else in service of that and it would have been a good decision.
Too much stuff planned for the season. They shoved in the "all the Cures" thing as well as the "Very Important Diversity Lessons" thing so the main plot took a fall for the team.
Nothing can possibly be as important as giving our main girl enough focus to feel like she's special.
They could easily have dropped at least two other girls too, so everyone would have felt like they have their own role in the series.
As an anon who loved the series, I agree wholeheartedly. This would have been the greatest choice for the show. All those crossover episodes fucked the series up.
Oh, it begins this week. I have skipped huggto, but I guess I will watch this one. I like the space theme.
I hope the music isn't so shitty this time around, hugtto is the only season where i skipped the transformations and special attacks.
YouTube embed. Click thumbnail to play.
Same here. It's so uninspirational and unheroic. The transformation music pales next to the others, which can really get you amped up for pretty justice. Actually it's a bit better on its own without the gyuuu~s, now that I listen to it here. Still weak.
February 1st was the actual 15th Anniversary of Precure, and also labeled "Precure Day".
Cure FourzeStar Twinkle airs in a few hours. Apparently Milky has some sort of thing where she goes "oyo~".
I can see why, especially listening the video of how their transformation sequence music changes. Started with heroines of justice and ended with the most sugar coated positive new tomorrow ever.
This video reminded me of how much I like Futari wa's soundtrack. It's seriously underrated.
>Futari wa's soundtrack is underrated.
The OP is still my favourite of all Precure openings. Right from the very start.
YouTube embed. Click thumbnail to play.
It's not just the henshin themes, but also goes for the whole soundtrack. Futari Wa to Yes5GoGo have very heroic, almost Showa-esque composition resembles more of something that could easily fit in an 80s shonen or Super Robot anime, then Fresh to Smile have Yasuharu Takanashi's work, who at this point needs no mention Even if his themes might eventually sound quite similar between each other, they gave quite a new look for the franchise IMO. After he left, we got Hiroshi Takaki from Doki to Maho and Yuuki Hayashi from KiraKira onwards. I can't really judge the first since I only watched GoPri in full and dropped Maho halfway through, can't remember anything aside from a few GoPri tracks, and the second I can't recall anything aside from the title card and the start of the henshin sequence and Emiru and Ruru grabbing their guitar shotguns.

Yeah when I watched FW I kept having to remind myself that it was from 2004. It's not only the music but the art, especially the backgrounds. Naoki Satou's battle themes are my favorite too.
Music is just so important. If you did nothing but swap in one of the better OST's into Hugtto it would make it like twice as good.
GOOD FUCKING JOB TOEI
THE FIRST EPISODE DIDN'T EVEN AIR
Maybe it is time to join in with the new one coming up.
Which are you thinking of joining in on, anon?
I'm iffy on the energy punch thing again and pink and blue fairy's voices, but at least the episode had more action than Fagtto, and it's looking quite lewd.
Before I forget.
Looks like it's going to be the one character in the OP.

New precure looks great. First episode had masterful direction and composition Henshin had really nice song too. Also, that yuri... I nearly died imagining the softness and the fragrance of her tiny pale loli-hand.
I did not expect there to actually be HAND TO HAND SPACE COMBAT. Glad to see mob enemies back too. And that was some very pretty space scenery, magic effects, and other colorful stuff. Good music too. That was great, except for Star's fucking voice, but I'll get used to that.
> And that was some very pretty space scenery
Yeah, I liked it too. It was filled with magic and imagination. I used to imagine space like this when I was a child.
> There's never gonna be yuri in PreCure
But it was always filled with yuri.
Honoka and Nagisa, Saki and Mai, Kurumi and Karen, Love and Setsuna, Tsubomi and Erika, Hibiki and Kanade, Mirai and Riko, Akira and Yukari...
There are more yuri pairs than precure seasons.
New pink sounds pretty bad, hope they give her some on the job training.
WITH A STAR ON HER FIRST
Either this first episode set the bar really high or we are in for a great show. The thigh service is awesome. きらやま is good autism. and better than めしょっく. This is how you be a pink, Hana. Even the puff ball is better than hugtan. Its good to have the little bad guys back for fun hand/star to hand combat.
In all the excitement I forgot how to spell fist. The singing during the transformation is a bit awkward since theres no meaningful lyrics. Hopefully they come up with a character song to take that place. Its going to be strange to not have meaningful lyrics for the group transformation later on.
Every week will not be a space battle so we won't get to enjoy something like this battle too often. The big battles should be in space though. I pray these bad guys bring giant enemies for the big fights like the ones from HaCha and HeartCatch. Hikaru needs to get every possible opportunity to use her space autism. We need to see a Star Punch backed by gravitational slingshot. I haven't been this excited by a first episode of anything in a long time.
> We need to see a Star Punch backed by gravitational slingshot.
It would be nice to see some space autism. Black Holes, neutron stars, turning Jupiter into a star and pinching it into an enemy. I love space since the childhood, so this season gets me excited.
Not really sure what to think of this so far. The concept is kinda fun and has a lot of potential, and it seems like we're going for a somewhat sillier season, but I hate pink's voice to the point I had to stop the episode a few times in the beginning. The introduction also felt as if it was treated like a chore, if this makes sense. As if they had a checklist of things that had to happen and just went along that.
How does he not stab himself with that thing?
Let's hope so.
> How does he not stab himself with that thing?
He had a good teacher.
I was rewatching parts of it, and thankfully I began to adjust already to where it didn't take me out of every single scene. Still, whose dick did she suck to get there?
Apparently she's some big time idol or some shit, so we can assume she might've sucked off the whole stuff and even lewded the kigs. Also expect lots of singing from her.
Well that was a short season.
Jokes aside, I really loved this first episode. Haven't watched Precure since Futari wa on TV but I'll be sure to follow this one. I've been meaning to watch Hugtto but didn't really get into it.
Hikaru looks cute, has really cool hobbies for a littlegirl and her catchphrase is way more natural too. Maybe it's just me but I don't mind her voice at all. Especially when compared to Hana who really annoyed me during the 3 episodes I watched.
Lala is just a pure miracle. I love her starry eyed space-elf design. I even like Puruns, he kinda reminds me of the martians from metal slug. Also that Ryo-jii build the book out of Getta-energy, didn't he?
The action was great. I doubt the animation will be like that for the whole series but I hope they put that much money in all major battles.
The ending look pretty good to. I don't know about all the others but Hugtto's ED looked liked dancing barbie dolls, terrible. The kinda-cellshading look in this one is much better, as is the general costume design. Lala's armpit-fishbowls are pretty lewd though.
Sorry, can't help it. I always sound like a massive shill when I'm excited about a show.,
I love how this guy looks like he's part of Frieza's troops. Good thing they call themselves the Notraiders, else they might seem like some aggressive conquering army.
It's not my cup of tea, but her singing wasn't too bad. You can tell she's really a singer more than a VA. You still wonder what the fuck Toei was thinking.
I admit to not being Japanese enough.
I liked it. It was cute and if Hikaru is the kind of character I hope she is then its perfect.
Being excited is a good thing.
One last thing I forgot, I really loved the music from 4:00-4:40. I'm not sure what to call it but it reminds me of something from PSO or other sci-fi games of that era.
>Being excited is a good thing.
I guess, but I still hate to sound like a shill.
>I liked [pink's voice]
I like the character of it but I find the sound of it distracting. But I know I'll get used to it. I have to, for the sake of the earth below.
Did anyone else enjoy the OP?
Don't be rude to Eitaso. She's a good girl who reads doujins and probably watches more anime than you.
>You still wonder what the fuck Toei was thinking.
This isn't /v/. Nobody is going to accuse you of getting paychecks from Toei for saying you like something.
I guess there will be a space tengu also.
Sadly I'm already feeling worried because of the previous season. The grandpa looks like he's going to be a strawman for "mean old man that doesn't understand how wonderful the brave new world is", just like Emiru's brother. Seriously hoping that it'll be more measured than that.
I'll just wait and see. Cranky old people weren't invented in "current year"-world.
That's true. I'm still going to wait and hope, just had to get that out there.
Just shows how deep your Hugtto wounds are. There are so many ways to do the grumpy old man character that its too soon to say anything yet. Even if he goes full no-fun-allowed police like Babaria (Pripara) he can still be enjoyable.
WataTen doesn't sell millions in toys.
Alright Japan. You are right. These doll masks don't look all that bad after all. >>903714
And I thought the pics from that Madoka stage play looked awkward.
Kigposters are fine! as long as they don't spam the thread like in the halfchan days
That brown girl looks so lewd.
Brown girls with long blond hair are a treasure.
Did somebody say Kigposting?
Now all we need is bukki posting.
With the addition of きらやば〜 which lead precure autism phrase is your favorite? ありえない is immortal but しあわせＧＥＴ is my favorite.
I liked Tsubomi's "kanninbukuro" line because she probably got it from being a granny's kid and only said it when she decided to quit waffling and start fighting.
It's great! I was suffering withdrawl symptoms since the last animu with that dance move was Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou.
けって〜い！ was good for its regularity, which my own autism enjoyed.
I have rewatched the little hip shake near the end of the ED dozens of times now.
KiraKira had much better hip shakes.
At least a cranky old man would make more sense than the previous strawman. And aside from that, it's natural for old people to be mad at kids being chuuni as fuck. Or maybe they can pull some decent backstory where he's upset because he couldn't achieve his dreams or something, too early to judge yet.
That's true but she's especially sexy, at least in that shot. The look in her eyes, complemented by the mole and the way she points down are pure sexual energy!
Oh yeah, that's something else I didn't like about Hugtto. The lipstick and makeup. It looked a bit too gaudy for my taste.
Maybe he just thinks he has to act strict in order to be a replacement father figure for Hikaru? Not like we saw a dad in EP 1.
> he couldn't achieve his dreams
That would be the expected heart warming story. Oyaji wanted to be an astronaut but failed and has lived with a broken heart ever since.
Who said this one? Come to think of it, what was Lovely's war cry?
Tsubomi only works in Heartcatch. If her character was in hugtto and that line was the lead in to the furefure finale it would be lame but Tsubomi and HC put effort into actual fighting after that line that made it shine.
>Who said this one?
>Who said this one?
>Oh yeah, that's something else I didn't like about Hugtto. The lipstick and makeup. It looked a bit too gaudy for my taste.
I never liked how that looked either. I'm really glad they went back on it since I'd assumed it was just a new way that things were going to be worse from now on.
Is this lewd like handholding?
Sorry I haven't watched your series yet, precure-that-often-falls-on-her-face.
You know what to watch next. Yes5 has kinda bad animation, but it's worth it for the cuteness and GoGo.
Also for those interested, Ryusoulger actually starts on March 17th. While LuPat is already done, we're getting a Sentai battle royale mini-series with several returning actors (GaoRed being the oldest, but a few older ones reappear in voice only) and of course, a tease for the new sentai.
Cast was already revealed, and plotwise is nothing special, aliens return after the meteor that killed the dinosaurs, there's some tribe that entrusted the power to chosen warriors, etc. What's interesting is that there's a mascot character, and instead of looking cute or anything it's just a big ass dinosaur robot voiced by Shadowmoon/Kintaros/Cure Sunny's dad. Apparently the robots will have several points of combination which for Sentai toys is quite ambitious.
Speaking of VAs, a few familiar voices: Jouji Nakata once more takes the role of a general, and Tomokazu Seki voices this guy that more likely than not will be the sixth ranger of the show.
That's a pretty lewd CM. Did any of the previous ones have them feeding each other?
I started watching Hugutto Precure and I must say that I am enjoying it a lot. I feel it's probably one of the best latest Precure anime, even though I watched only 6 episodes. The Homare episodes were especially good and made me cry, she is my favourite Huggto. Saaya is a pretty and cute moe geek, I like her. Hana annoyed me a bit at first with her constant fure, but I am slowly staring to like her, especially her emotes. 6th episode was a bit underwhelming, compared to the first five, but it's a norm for Precure and other longer series, so I don't really see it as a minus. I have really high hopes for this season.
P.S. Henshins are extremely beautiful. They have done a great work on showing the beauty of girl. Makeup on JC is just great too. I hope there would be makeup applying scenes.
>Makeup on JC is just great too.
Eh, too each their own. I don't like makeup most of the time, that's why I liked their costumes less.
It goes to shit in chapter 16, how the hell can you call Hugtto one of the best precure seasons when the whole thing is already out and thus can see that it is absolutely not? Gay propaganda aside, that season was nothing but wasted potential, the whole point was teaching girls that they could be more than a mother/housewife, and then it ends with Hana getting pregnant and even giving birth onscreen? How did she deal with her random moodswings, did she even get rid of those at all or is she doomed to die young and leave her husband miserable? Saaya and Homare had successful careers, but have no children or husband, and Emiru became a lonely, childish she looks exactly like she did when she was 9, she's just taller and wears makeup lesbian who poured all her money on a guy who was building a lolibot that could grow old, that and the revelation that Hana ultimately never had a choice, she absolutely had to get married to George and get pregnant, as Hugtan wouldn't have been born otherwise and the villain would have won.
>Makeup on JC is great too
Ehh not really, even in your own pictures you can see that hana looks prettier in her civilian form, Hugtto's makeup is less garish than the makeup in HaCha at least.
I wish i was born a japanese salaryman so i could buy my daughter cute precure merch.
Next episode: Cures arguing with each other, which hasn't really happened in a long time.
Homare is usually the better written of the main three, which says less about Homare's writing/plots and more about how poor Saaya's was, but especially Hana's. The attempts at development that Hana has are so hamfisted that are almost a sidenote. In fact, Hana's (and Hugtto's as a whole) actual plot kicks off in the last few episodes, but in the middle you get a whole bunch of nothing. What's worse, it's not even a fun kind of nothing like Smile's where the main characters can carry the show and you get a lot of mileage thanks to their interactions with their world. Instead you get a bunch of props/plot devices disguised as secondary characters, but unlike GoPri or HC they have little impact on the characters, at least after the beginning. Even the hamster gets better writing and even a better fight. I warn you, after ep15 it all goes downhill with a few small bumps.
At least makeup in HaCha was reserved for the upgrade. Hugtto's was in all the time.
Congratulations, Tengu titties next episode. You did already see her fan in the OP
Lala is such a good girl.
>Next episode: Cures arguing with each other
With that, these two will likely feel closer than the Hugttos did for most of their series. And Hikaru just implicitly furefure'd the fuck out of Lala. What was Hana good for again?
Fuck, I didn't know this before. Does she get together with that boy she has a crush on or can I keep the slightest bit of hope for an off-screen /u/ ending?
I really, really like this new season. Both Hikaru and Lala are very likable so far and while we don't know the other two yet, I like the design of all four girls. Both in regular and Cure form. The art looks solid and the space-theme feels so fresh and interesting.
I do wonder what the transformations will be like when they all do it at the same time, since hearing that song every episode might get a bit repetitive but at least it looks good. And a bit lewd, in Lala's case. It's the way she "paints" the costume on herself with a grin.
Also, I missed that wink last week,
I'm pretty sure she completely fails to confess through all 96 episodes and two movies, and he never makes a move on her either.
This is great. Hikaru learned multi-star fist and Lala learned thunderbolt. The Milky transformation is cool at first then suddenly super lewd with the leg face and chest closeups. God bless the director and character designer. Its great that Hikaru actually gets mad and frustrated, being perpetually (fake) happy was Hana's weakness.
>hearing that song every episode
They will likely keep playing it until you and all the other girls memorize it. I assume the pens and notebooks will be toys that play it. About halfway through the show they will change it for group transformations to sell more stuff.
>I wish i was born a japanese salaryman so i could buy my daughter cute precure merch.
Why not buy a plane ticket and buy it yourself? Speaking of merchandise that gummy CM got its tie-in which should help. I do concede that buying the gummies and feeding them to your daughter who you taught to say kirayabai~has a certain appeal.
>Next episode: Cures arguing with each other, which hasn't really happened in a long time.
Its two episodes and already deeper characters than 90% of Hugtto.
I don't want to get too far into flaming Hugtto though. There were three really important plot points brought up so far. The first is that Hikaru's dad is the spacefag but he hasn't appeared yet I think. Is it off working or dead? If its the latter brace for a hopefully really well written backstory on Hikaru, dad and grandpa. The second is the universe itself. There are 12 heartiels, I mean zodiac girls to be found. Each one will likely bring some kind of power up (see OP for transforming pen) and probably new dresses. If its like HaCha level of transformation but smoothed out in battle to have a shorter kawarunrun lead in, it will be gold. I'm glad to have a clear target and finality to this story right from the outset. At some point we will get precures adventuring to find the next zodiac ball and if God exists at least one SoL space travel episode where its just precures talking and getting closer to each other.
The third part is Lala is from a planet where you can marry 13 year old (potential) cures like her. No make up needed.
After I did some training on episode 1, Hikaru's voice no longer feels like someone is playing a trumpet next to my ear, and I was able to completely enjoy episode 2.
It doesn't look like Kappafag is in this picture. I hope this means we get a return of the precure vs villain rivalries and one and one finale battles later. キラやば~
>It doesn't look like Kappafag is in this picture
That screenshot is from the OP and he was already visible as shadowy figure in the first ep.
I want to get legally drunk with Lala.
>the whole point was teaching girls that they could be more than a mother/housewife
You missed the fucking point.
Eitaso is doing her best.
She knows her stuff. This is making the /x/phile in me happy.
I was hoping that it would pretty quickly go from hate to love, and that seems to be the case.
Girls wearing mascots on their head is a tiny but powerful miracle. It brings me joy every time I see it.
I think they're referencing it themselves now.
This is my first Precure anime but I am loving it so far
Even the melody is a bit similar.
You just have to accept that some people like Hugtto, fag.
I'm just waiting for the group transformation.

It actually originally comes from this.
WHICH ONE OF YOU FUCKERS WAS IT
YOU WEREN'T SUPPOSED TO TEACH HER THAT
Don't blame her. Hikaru didn't know that was how aliens breed.
Another great episode. The clash between Lala's and Hikaru's personalities is excellent and a breath of fresh air even if the conflict is kind of solved in the same episode. Hopefully there's more of that. Also, having the generals actually behave different with their mooks is also a nice bonus. Who would've thought Miyuki Takara and Saber would show up in Precure?
She's an adult, she can handle it.
The internal conflict was good. This is just making Hikaru a better character for almost dropping the k word, which I dont think has been said recently by any cures to other cures. I hope she does it again to go on a rampage later on. Its even better than she genuinely apologized. The twin transformation was good and this money shot was great. Elena becoming a cure next week is a bit too soon I think. However this implies she will be an important character in relationship building instead of someone who appears like a 3rd wheel later. Getting the first of the pens is a bit fast but again implies its going to take much longer to get one from here onward. Since school was brought up we need to get some school episodes, especially Lala in school uniform.
Shes an adult this is what adults do. Given how much she uses the sensors for everything its possible getting her pregnant involves touching them in some way.
I lack the experience to compare it to other seasons but I'm really enjoying this. A lot. I was actually looking forward to this episode and I'm hyped for the next.
>Elena becoming a cure next week is a bit too soon I think
The sooner we get all the cures the more time they have to interact with each other. I wonder if we get purple by ep 6.
>Getting the first of the pens is a bit fast
I think it works just fine for establishing their "quest". That doesn't mean they'll get the next pen anytime soon.
How did you feel about the Ares/Taurus power up? It was a mild variation on star punch and we got Fuwa in a special edition. I was hoping to see Hikaru in some kind of bull themed cosplay.
I did not expect the Fuwa. It was also nice seeing a cure get rekt.
It's good enough, keeps stuff fresh without changing up stuff too much. Perhaps giving it the "different keys give the attack different properties" approach will be better if the cures strategize more and show them being ineffective under certain conditions.
As for Fuwa, at least this time they should give the form changes some use instead of wasting them like they did with Ha-chan.
>The sooner we get all the cures the more time they have to interact with each other. I wonder if we get purple by ep 6.
If too many Cures are introduced too quickly, it can spread the screentime too thinly, turning everything into group gags; alternatively, if they're all introduced but everything is focused on a few of them, it feels like the others are just baggage. Introducing a Cure is a big event, so saving it for later can shake up the plodding filler arcs that usually pop up between the first and last cour.
Personally I'm hoping Yellow does more of a sempai thing until Purple shows up, with the two of them having their own dynamic while being sempais to Pink and Blue. It'd be similar to Yes! 5, where Green and Blue had their own relationship while still working with everyone else. Apparently a fifth Cure has been leaked, she can help fight the filler doldrums later on.
This season is great, Lala's voice and verbal tick are adorable and Hikaru is more or less Erika/Hime but pink, oh and that ending is fantastic, i'm gonna be sad when they replace it. Hikaru is such a cute dork i cannot bring myself to lewd her despite her revealing cure outfit, it feels like i'm taking advantage of her.
Unrelated to the new season but i refuse to finish hugtto, at first i watched it as it was airing but dropped it after episode 15 or was it 19 when they introduced the blonde crossdressing homo?, now i'm at episode 31 and i fucking hate it, never mind the frenchie, none of the girls have charisma or interesting quirks, they hardly interact except for giving each other asspats and emiruru is taking up way too much screentime, the music and cure designs are lame, the fights are unsatisfying and hana is a terrible protagonist, why is she unhappy all the time? She just got shunned in middle school, not beaten or even molested, and now she has superpowers, a cute baby daughter, a handsome man that acts as hugtan's babysitter and 4 team mates kissing her ass 24/7, being miserable must be her fetish.
I watched the crossover and final episodes then deleted all the episodes, this thing isn't even worth being in my hard drive.
It was just a bigger/stronger star punch as fitting of the bull/cow constellation, still i hope Star relies on raw strength like Lovely did, too many pinks have opted for flashing lights and energy balls/beams instead of fisticuffs like Nagisa.
Now that is something to look forward to and explains why Soleil is appearing early on.
I'd argue Erika and Hime being a higher level of autism than Hikaru. That said we havent seen in-school Hikaru yet. Its possible she has little to no friends and eats lunch in an empty room where she uses a night sky projector. Give it 3 to 6 more weeks and you will have no trouble lewding her. Hikaru is the kind of person to use outright strength. She has a strong enough will to use brute force where necessary.
See >>903826, and you can already see her identity in the OP.
Frog faggot was introduced alongside Homare practically, and even part of his faggot status shows up there. 19 was the fashion show episode where Emiru's brother goes full retard.
I want to do lewd things with legal adult Lala.

Selene and school confirmed for next episode already. So either we're getting lots of padding or character focused episodes before we get a new arc, hopefully.
Thread seems to be way past bump limit or something, should there be a new thread?
