Unless we get toy leaks I doubt we'll be getting new forms until Mid-season. Those usually leak when everything else for the start of the season does cause they need to sell toys

there's at least 13 princesses and each one has a unique power to give the girls

there's plenty of time to draw stuff out. and like. this is the Maho Girls writer, and that show upset the status quo very regularly.

yeah but if we had different forms we had have different toys and merchandise and they'd have it in stores or coming to stores soon. The fact we have no toy store leaks is a pretty good sign we don't have different forms

Magical girls fighting space youkai with the power of the Zodiac is a hell of a concept to base a season around, I hope it manages to keep up its current momentum the whole way through. Also if they're really not doing MotW this season I hope they at least find some way to keep things interesting (like maybe have a general that can transform ala Elisio and Bibury's doll from KiraKira).

The one thing that surprises me about the generals is that I can't think of a single other show that's tried its hand at a sexy kappa before now. With how popular they are and how artists being horny is a universal constant, it just seems unlikely.

I'm hoping that Kappard and Tenjou aren't just flukes and all of the NotRaiders turn out to just be evil space youkai (which seems to be the case based on the silhouettes in the OP). I'm also hoping that we'll get form changes based on the Princesses for the Cures themselves and not just Fuwa.

On another note, I kind of hope Aoi, Emiru and Lulu get a chance to preform together at some point in the next crossover movie. Speaking of which, it might be nice if they started doing Returns specials for Precure like they've done for some Sentai and Rider shows (though there apparently was a Smile novel that picked up 10 years after the end of the series and Maho Girls' finale was technically an epilogue).

Mostly I just want to see what the older characters have been up to post-series (particularly the ones that wound up revealing their identities at the end) and see some Magical Women kicking rear end (also, Prime Minister Mana Aida).

Hell, do a Splash Star and/or Doki Doki sequel and use it as an opportunity to finally make Regina and the Kiryuu sisters into proper Cures.

Nodosaur

Regina is literally made of darkness/selfishness, so I'm not sure she can become a Precure.

but I do think Dokidoki has the most interesting implications for things post-series.

She still was somehow redeemed and joined their side at the end anyway, plus if fairies and robots can be Cures then why not (maybe call her Cure Joker or something to match her "sister").

Smile had an official post-series novel where all the characters were in their (IIRC) mid-twenties and it seemed to imply that they're going to be Precure again and I would legitimately watch something like that.

Larryb
Oct 5, 2010



Regarding DokiDoki it would be interesting to see how their lives are now that the public is aware of their identities as Precure (I imagine that being a superhero wouldn't exactly hurt your social life/future political aspirations at any rate) as well as how relations between Japan and the Trump Kingdom are going. Similarly, it could be interesting to see a Fresh or Go Princess sequel as well since they also revealed themselves by the end.

But yeah, a 10 Years After special for any season could be fun (or at the very least let some of the older Cures grow a bit rather than leaving everyone perpetually the same age). The past 3 seasons already had straight up timeskips by the end after all.

Alice probably is the most likely of the rich cures to use her money for capitalism thhough she'd do whatever Mana said she should do.

Look, the Trump Kingdom needs to be rebuilt, and it's not like their money's worth anything on Earth, so maybe Alice doesn't get anything out of it.

Alice can do what she pleases. She's the daughter of one of the wealthiest families in the country and is also a superhero whose best friend and current prime minister once took down a giant demon (almost singlehandedly at that), are you going to argue with her?

Off the subject but is it just me or do the Kiryuu sisters look really out of place compared to the other inhabitants of Dark Fall? Everyone else is some kind of weird demon thing but those two just look like ordinary human girls (albeit with weird eyes and energy powers). In fact, when I first watched Splash Star I initially thought it was going to turn out that they actually were humans who had been brainwashed (which also makes me wonder exactly what they were created from, what with all the other generals being some kind of ordinary object enchanted by magic).

The generals were based on the elements of the days of the week, being the sun, moon, fire, water, wood, earth, and metal. Because of the opposing nature of the sun and moon, it would be best if they were a pair, and and they were designed as young women to make their whole "pretend to be friends" plot articulation work.

Michiru and Kaoru were also voiced by the same actresses who played Moop and Foop respectively (though in Kaoru's case it was her second actress as the original left the show after becoming pregnant).

On a similar note, the villains in DokiDoki are all meant to correspond to one of the Seven Deadly Sins: Ira (Wrath), Marmo (Greed), Bel (Sloth), Leva (Envy), Gula (Gluttony), Regina (Lust) and Selfish King (Pride). Also in Yes 5 the employees of Nightmare are all based on animals/insects that eat/bother butterflies (mantis, spider, frog, bird, bat, chameleon, bee)

Off the subject but a few new Star Twinkle characters have been revealed. Starting from the top we have a pair of NotRaider generals named Garuuga (the blue guy) and Iwan (the one eyed alien girl) as well as a new classmate at Hikaru's school named Sakurako Himenoji.

I should note that there is a chance Iwan is an ushi-oni rather than the conventional kind of oni, which would explain his blue skin (they're aquatic) and his heavy cloak (they're part-spider, so there may be a whole bunch of legs under there). His jowls also look kind of like a spider's fangs. Yes, I know blue oni exist, and that they seeem to be going for big-name yokai rather than more obscure ones, but it'd be a cool twist if they do choose it.

The top one is Garuuga actually (who is also apparently voiced by Dogold from Kyoryuger), Iwan is the female general below him (not entirely sure what kind of yokai she's supposed to be though).

Subs are out for Star Twinkle 4. I really like Elena so far and it's nice that we finally saw some of the inner workings of the NotRaiders.

Like I've said before, if you're really not going to have MOTW in this season then you should at least do something unique with the villains to keep things interesting (like maybe give some of the generals a transforming gimmick like with Bibury and Elisio from KiraKira).

Again a very likpatous story


There was a lot of good stuff this episode, I see we have another wolfman general. At least, I assume he's a general? Could just be a butler for the one-eyed girl. Also looks like, based on the link from earlier, the girl in that is the one who saw Lala and Puruns this episode.

And Elena has the best version of the song.
