IIMHO it lacks raw, emotional drama. The characters are too nice and effective so they hardly ever screw up or display their "ugly" side. Suite has Melody/Rhythm quarrel and bitchiness of Seiren and Ako, Fresh has Love/Setsuna enmity/betrayal and heartcatch has every fucking cast. Even smile cure has their despair faces. I still haven't found the moment that princess cure or even side character (Yui etc) in significant emotion breakdown yet.
Haruka has had insecurities from time to time about whether she can accomplish her dream. Minami had moments of weakness when she tried and failed to defeat the ghost zetsuborg on her own, when Tina got hurt trying to defend her, and now she's got some doubts over her dream. Towa's entire arc after joining the team was about coming to terms with her actions as Twilight, and in Kirara's episode with her mother things got a bit ugly between them.
They are definitely missing best Cure, alright.
>Lock was actually a fairy and he was purified mid-season instead of waiting until the end
>but he doesn't remember anything and will be inconsequential from here on
Bad idea. It's taking something potentially interesting and throwing it away for the usual brainwashing / amnesia Toei is obsessed with.
Stop harassing Onee-sama, get back to /ai/.
the ride never ends
Why the cures love donut so much? Is there some sublimal commercial intended?
donuts are simply a miracle of the universe
Why this picture make me so sad and somewhat angry?
Tennis guy is fine, he's a reformed bully and his teasing of Haruka is cute.
It's that fucking rich faggot with the action man hair that needs to get fucked off the edge of a cliff overlooking a nail factory.
1st appearance: Make fun of Haruka and tell her to BTFO during pair match instead of trying to coach her because his dream demand him not to spare any time for helping classmate in school activity. (And Haruka supposed to be his crush? WTF?)
2 nd appearance: Rage quit his so call dream just because he got sideline for probably first time in his life, tell his worried fanclab to BTFO, then whine about his life story to girl who just saved his ass and in middle of fighting an abomination.
The worst thing is however we supposed to SYMPATHISED with him (and in the 1st episode even to admire his dream like how Haruka does). I don't care about rich faggot because everyone already hated him and audience are supposed to laugh at his failure.
Well, at least we're safe, right?
i want sex between Haruharu and Kanata
Purification by fire. Start over again. Toei has become exceedingly efficient at making profitable franchises, they just need to make one on what's 'hot' right now, which happens to be idols as of lately.
Urara didn't save precure
MakoPi didn't save precure
No, not really. I'm not sure it really needs to be saved, unless you really need to see it become an incredibly long legacy series like KBM/SS. Maybe it needs a break and revival, maybe it needs a regroup so that every single season is about friendship at its core so that it becomes The dependable series for that. Because all kidding aside, I'm not sure a one- or two-year gimmick will save the series, other than letting it drag on for another couple of years past that despite sub-par standards.
Or maybe that should be the model, one great year every 3-4. I dunno.
It has been exactly one year since Himelda Window Cure Queen of the Blue Sky stuffed her Halloween party dress with unidentified spherical objects to appear more physically attractive to the opposite sex. I can't remember what else went on in that episode but it probably involved Seiji getting cucked again.
i recall something about churros and blue getting all of the cake
there was definitely food, in any case
Oh yeah, because the TV suits definitely know how to sell shit
Stop, I already jacked off to your post last night.
yasuko kobayashi fucking when
Character designs by Aoki Ume.
I want my wide PreCure series.
Reminder that junior high school students are awesome.
But now the Sad Panda will become even sadder!
1-hour drawing incoming.
The flower that flutters by the ocean winds, today's theme is Kurumi Erika aka Cure Marine.
An old article about the 2004 children's TV slate from Animation World Magazine where they talked about each network/company and had short statements from their brass (Al Kahn was the former head of 4kids)
To his credit, TMM was a success but they fucked it up by having no shit to sell
jesus look at all those angry tokyo mew mew fans
i read through the manga earlier this year, definitely underwhelming
The writer does a ton of screenplays, so it really must have been a side project she didn't expect to catch on given how half-assed the sequel series was
Also Precure has more balls-to-the-wall "action" that a lot shows aimed at boys and the idea that these people casually looked it over until now when they were searching for something like this is hilarious in a sense.
Also is the DokiDoki movie any good?
God damn that was a good episode I missed the livewatch for. Minimizing the fight time and focusing on the episode's plot was awesome and long-coming, as was having it on two side characters while still developing Haruka and Kanata. While the entire thing was a great expression of Haruka's determination, the way she turned everyone's expectations on their head and rejected Kanata joining the play blew me away. I love Haruka so much, especially because she has the guts and ability to pull off what she preaches. Oh yeah, and that fucking awesome floral burst in the battle, she ain't got time for their shit.
>Just realized that Towa's name follows the same pattern as Haruka Kanata
Well now I feel stupid. And that guy in the preview looked like Ban-kun from behind. Looks like next week will be full of a ton of different things and betrayal everywhere.
Now I feel bad for laughing because you might actually be retarded for real.
>covering it in shit, and turning it into an attraction
He's as dense as an actual Precure character.
>Look up her up only to see she wrote Rurouni Kenshin: Reflection as well
Even talented people have duds. I liked the premise, but maybe i'm a stickler for mediocrity. I enjoyed Mermaid Melody was well
But she is a girl. A cute one! Worth cuddling!
did dragon ball s get good yet?
Even after watching every season, Fresh is still my favorite.
peeking around corners is always cute
Are you saying this doesn't look like Ban-kun?
Hurr durr it's Close blah blah that's not the point I was trying to make.
You saying that gives me some hope, since I plan on watching it soon-ish. The last one I've watched was Splash Star, and it ended being quite boring in the episodes without Michiru and Kaoru, and being the only one other than Yes and HapCha and GoPri that I haven't watched it's nice hearing that Fresh holds some promise.
>it's nice hearing that Fresh holds some promise.
It's got all the QUALITY, fun and tits you could ever want in Precure.
It's also the only one to have all three of them in the first place.
is it time for more fresh posting?
oh god that's amazing
Her hair is ice cream. And her belly button is beautiful.
because it takes a show that's really good and makes it too fucking long
Due to a shortage in magical energy, many magical girls today are opting to manually change into their magical outfits. This lovely cat is no exception, and her we managed to catch her about to fix her hair.
It'd be kind of fun to see this power shortage thing be put to use in something like another Sentai parody.
One of the many things I've always wanted to see in Precure is the Cures in their Cure outfits, but with civilain hair, doing their poses and catchphrases. Basically like a helmetless rollcall in Sentai.
I would love that, but I think it should be reserved for dramatic moments.
Unless it's Aguri, Cure Ace should just be replaced with Cure Aguri.
>they've had a record of being much poorer in quality
Then why do I like GoGo more than Yes?
Also, why is Anacondy so great?
Most would believe she tastes like cupcakes but the truth is, she tastes like shirataki noodles and is best in sukiyaki.
>Buki was on time and got triple dubs
Sasuga best girl.
Oh. It's morning already.
Anon, I'm trying to not be depressed for a little.
>5 more submissions than yesterday when the theme was Tsubomi
Go!pre's 3DCG makes my penis harder. I can't wait coming movie.
CCS' problem is that it outright tried to replace the main character.
It won't even about giving the boys something, they genuinely thought a kids show that didn't star a boy would be a flop.
I'm getting mixed message here. Earlier, it looks like this ep was trying to convey the lesson of "never giving up something you started", and now it goes to "know your limit and know when to quit"?
Im not watching the current season. Is this girl any good? and why cant I stop downloading doujin with her on the cover?
I miss notNagisa and her salty eyebrows.
Is Tsubomi's grandmother also somebody with fairy fever like Nozomi?
but they're ALREADY MAGIC GIRLS
Just let Precure die already
Finally a theme I can get behind. Assuming it's real.
I like where this is going
This could be the birth of a new golden era of Precure.
Why, hello there /pc/. I've come to become next year's Cure.
MY DREAM HAS COME TRUE
That's just Sugar Sugar Rune.
i'm sure toei will make every plot device matter for real this time
This is a good idea, we can have a Cure from each house.
Daily Minamin!! Minaharu edition!
Oh nice! I wonder what will be the Cures themed after
>not an enlgish name
We old school now.
>Magical girl show: Magical girl edition
