Started watching the original Pretty Cure in the meantime, got to the end of Pissard's episodes yesterday. I think even Jadeite would be embarrassed by him.

A decent amount since they're before Sentai and Rider anyway, and I watched a bit of this one years and years ago. I appreciate how much it feels like they were trying stuff out since it wasn't really a standardized franchise yet. Like the ending of episode six, where Black and White just go and hit Gekidrago with Marble Screw right away once he appears before he even realizes what's going on. That doesn't really happen today.

This week's episode of Kirameiger ended with a preview of their Sixth Ranger blatantly being advertised for next week. So once we're past whatever they had animated/planned out for Healin' Good I imagine Earth will show up quickly herself, not that that's a surprise at this point.

Those look pretty good, aesthetically pleasing and it does look like a super mode (looking at you, Hugtto).

One thing I found interesting about this episode: if you count the bird was a Monster of the Week, was he the first Precure one to be more like something you'd see on Sailor Moon, with a unique personality and speech? Even when they came out of a victim of the week in other seasons they'd always tended to be mindless and have one-word vocabularies.

Oh yeah I forgot about those. Kira in general shook up that usual formula, which was nice.

Finally, they've had that bit in the opening since HG started and they've only gotten what, ten minutes of screentime together?

I imagine they'll bring it up a bit with Daruizen now, but I kinda wish they'd touched on the morality of just blowing away Daruizen Jr. after he was alive, what, a couple minutes? At least it felt more questionable than the animal generals since he barely seemed to have any agency beyond his base instincts.

Nanoha and Symphogear have content in their first seasons that sound like they may not be what you'd enjoy, Physics. Specifically, the former has kind of an extreme scene of physical abuse from a parent to their child, the latter has very heavy implications of past sexual assault on a main character, something they wisely never brought up again for them in seasons afterward. I like them both but it seems worth mentioning.

Technically they didn't try to make him look like the lead, they just started the series at where he showed up to try to make it look like there was a male lead around just as much.

Which didn't work since eventually they had to go back to the episodes with just Sakura.

Are there any other magical girl (or magical girl adjacent) shows out there with a duo dynamic a la Futari wa Precure? It's my favorite type of dynamic for this genre but most of the shows I've found focus either on a single heroine or on a team.

The second season of Nanoha, kind of?

Wonder if they're just going for the obvious mermaid angle or something a bit more out there? The villains seem like they'd write themselves in such a premise at least.

A focus on make-up for a Precure season reads kind of ominously after Happiness Charge.

If he is, the mid-season attack involved the girls putting on very thick, unappealing make-up to do it that made them look like clowns at best. The actual attack also had them singing, which at least made it feel like it went on for a lot longer than equivalent finishers.

They probably did, all the images I could find of Innocent Form weren't as bad as I remember. Hugtto also managed to do it the whole show okay anyway, so I was kinda being facetious.

Ah, probably should have expected an Ursula equivalent if we're doing mermaids. Nice to see the HG composer is being used again, he's done great work.

I will say though, I hope we see more of the main villain this time after the last two seasons.

Also it seems that King Byogen is voiced by Hozumi Goda.

King Byogen drinks, and the coffee of Sukoyaka is bitter indeed.

The first person gets pretty uncomfortable with a particular character and implies some very unnecessary things, but it gets kind of walked back in following ones since there's a director change.

It wrapped up pretty conclusively with the fifth season. It could have something more, and obviously the mobile game is still putting out content, but for the moment there's nothing animated in the works.

You'd be hard pressed to look up anything about Tropical Rouge without seeing Laura, you couldn't really say the same for Regina.

It's odd that they used a new villain for Minori's first episode, but not Asuka's. It probably doesn't mean anything but it'd be funny if the maid was the strongest of the generals.

I feel like the cannon will end up being an imagine spot/excuse to reference JAKQ, just because Precure finishers tend not to work like that.

The in-universe reasoning for it happening also ends up being kind of a letdown that's resolved way too fast.
