Going by the episode preview, are they going to be fighting inside King Jikochuu next episode? Because it sure looked like they were inside his body.

Well, I haven't watched Precure yet, but that sure is an image that gets the interest of any anon really easily.

What the hell would they fight inside him? Jikochu intestines? Knowing Toei, I wouldn't be surprised if it were the Jikochu forms of the Precure though.

It's bait. Like the real kind, not the ruse kind. You don't really get to see much of that, if at all.

Wouldn't they just have to purify KJ like the rest? Didn't the King have his heart go full Jikochu in the flashback, or did he just get swallowed up by KJ?

We haven't seen the Cures purify a Jikochuu containing the body of the victim, as KJ appears to be. They probably don't want to risk it. Also there's that shot in the preview of the petrified King.

Think of it this way. Y5, fairies are humans half the time. Other seasons, Fairies are humans 0% of the time.

Pride and Lust were hiding inside KJ the whole time. They literally planned for everything this season.

Fixed.
Then the reveal. Cue the reactions.

That's like those porn doujins in SadPanda where the girls kiss while being fucked by two men each that are tagged yuri.
It's my fetish, but it isn't yuri, and shouldn'tbe tagged as such.

That's because soccer moms got pissed after Y5 so they toned down all the Romance. Notice how Komachi disappeared off the face of the earth?

It's as close to canon yuri as you'll get in a Precure series, though.

Is having male characters such a bad thing now? I didn't mind the hetero, though I'd prefer having some more Milk and Kurumi. If anything, the hetero romance was nice. It was unique for a precure series, and helped flesh out the characters, as well as bring actual male MCs into the fray. They could touch on so many more issues that way, either by having girls deal with man issues or having the men insert their opinions on girl issues.

That was pretty lewd, but you have to admit they eschew the romance in favor of lighthearted antics and such.

It's not a bad thing, we got Detective Komachi out of it, but it is a change from Y5

Who the fuck cares about the balloon? It's a fucking pointless shit attack to stall for the finisher, like Ace's mirror thing and I sure as hell don't see people wanting more of that.

Hey, New Stage 3 is gonna be the last NS movie, so MAYBE the next crossover saga could feature old and new shows interacting together so we can get awesome things like Waon as a Cure or Michiro and Kaoru acknowledged...

I'm probably in the minority here, but if they did Precure CG like they are doing for Saint Seiya, I'd watch it. http://saintseiya2014.com/character.html

The CG they use for the ED is just a direct 2D translation, but if they redesigned the characters for 3D first, then it would look interesting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDKPJ18aDFY

But this is Toei we're talking about. The EDs look nice and I doubt a full series would look as bad as say, the goofy cheap CG they use in toku shows, but I'm not sure they'd be able to maintain a consistent level of quality with full CG. They can barely do it with 2D.

At this point it should be possible to basically use the MMD method and make the models move as required with a few simple commands.
Maybe I am mistaken...

I want this. Whether it's one of the ex-SHAFT that have been making DEEN shows watchable for the past few years, someone who studied under Ikuhara, or god willing Ikuhara himself, a full-on theatrical shoujo Precure would be fantastic.

Does it? I haven't gotten very far with it, but I don't think it looks that good. Precure and the current Aikatsu CG seem very much to be trying to mimic the style of the show, while PRRL is deliberately different. They definitely have the motion down, but the look of it isn't good.

From what I've gathered about people complaining about "reddit filenames", Redditors use imgur too, which is only 2MB as well.

And the 3MB file size only applies to the non-/gif/ boards. I've seen 3MB+ on /wsg/, though I don't know the cap.

>>100114548
> make the models move as required with a few simple commands.
That's the issue, even with MMD. There's no such thing as "a few simple commands" when it comes to natural and fluid movement for 3D models; even with motion capture, you have to deal with ensuring fluid transitions between recorded movements (though that does tend to be more automated these days).

Nah, the choice was between going for the perv club that disgusted him and only worked on one kind of photo and joining the respected club with a lack of members that could better fulfill what he wanted to do, according to his own thoughts.

Again, if you don't like it then just drop it. Let me tell you in advance, this is pretty much the Mana show so if you don't like her or want focus on other characters you are just going to hate it.

I like Mana but the later half of the show is so Mana-centric that in a way it feels a little obnoxious. I don't think there was an episode in the latest 6 or 7 episodes where they didn't show or have a character say they like Mana at least once.

>>100120596
It's not that Mana doesn't have a goal, it's that her goal is a bit more ambitious than other cures. At some point she states (I don't consider it a spoiler but in case you do: that she wants to become the Prime Minister. Whereas other Student Council President cures were focused on improving their performance at their current duty, Mana is more or less just gaining experience for something way further in the future.

It's not just Mana that is more ambitious either. Rikka wants to be a Doctor, which requires a relatively absurd amount of work, and Alice is already set up to be a CEO at a very young age. And Makoto's ambitious include saving a princess, and her means are becoming a massively popular idol, something many girls would have as their end goal. We have the most ambitious team in cure history.

I'm not saying this necessarily makes the show more interesting to everyone, but to me it's very refreshing.

Whilst I've enjoyed the large amount of plot focus, they really didn't have enough to fill a year-long series. And the filler wasn't really up to snuff.

I dunno about that. Little girls can be pretty smart. Never forget that little girl who had the same reaction to Ace as the majority here.
>>
>>100122199
I think that kaioken arc when Ace was first introduced was dreadful watching week to week. It got slightly better after that, but the plot-of-the-week wasn't enjoyable for me until Regina woke herself and the plot up from their comas.

The beginning and end though are definitely enjoyable to watch weekly though. I miss all that speculah from when the season started.

>>100122785
Personally, I think if you ignore the plot entirely, Doki becomes a very strong season. It's also pretty strong if you focus on the plot and ignore the filler.

The real problems with Doki break down into two things:
Animation content (Fights and Stock)
Pacing and episode ordering.

It's kind of like the Doki production team had a jigsaw puzzle that should have made a beautiful picture, but they put a lot of pieces in the wrong places and even lost a few.
>>
>>100122637
Now that I think about it, there were a lot fewer actual filler episodes than I remember. And most of them were great.

Fuck it, I love Doki. Bar one or two things it's been really enjoyable. People are focusing so much on one part that they're completely ignoring the stuff that makes it fun.

The fights being bad is something I'd say is blown out of proportions. Some of them were average or less than average but it did have some very exciting ones once in a while. But I agree on the episode ordering, they could have balanced the filler and plot better than they did.

It'd would have been nice if the animation in general has gotten some more budget but I have a feeling HaCha is going to have a pretty fat budget, at least in comparison.

>>100122950
Well, being the on-going show means getting criticized the most too, I guess. Personally, I don't think there's a single bad precure season so far.
I love Doki too but I've been having mixed feelings about some of the latest episodes. Never mind, I just hope the next two episodes will be great so It could finish leaving a good taste in my mouth.

It was an Alice episode. It was when she got her powerup. She trained at home, transformed first, and fought Cuite Madam 1v1. All throughout the episode there was development between her and Sabastian as well, including one of the most memorable and heartwarming final shots in the series.

>Rose festival sucked
Your opinion sucks. It was the first real Alice episode, and right away we got to see her dealing with the struggles of running the business in her father's absence.
>Furious loli Alice beats the shit out of middle schoolers
The rest of the episode she beats the shit out of Reina in every competition in creative ways. In the fight against the Jikochu, she proves her worth as a Precure and SHOOTS THE FUCKING BARRIER at it. The whole episode confirms how much she has matured as both a person, and a Precure.

Alice may not have had the most screen time, but calling her boring is stupid.

No there wasn't. Their relationship didn't change nor did we learn anything new about it that wasn't previously apparent.

Alice didn't grow at all or learn anything in that episode that she shouldn't have already known. It was like the show felt like making her dumber or more ignorant to give an excuse for her power up.

Yes there was. Their relationship had trust issues. Sebastion went behind her back to try to do something for her that ended up causing all the trouble. It made Alice realize how much Sebastion had really been doing for her behind the scenes throughout her life.
>This time, I'll be the one to protect you.
Queue fighting with Cutie Madam, and through the dedication she had to train alone at home against simulated Jikochus and shit, combined with her newly strengthened relationship with her long time friend and mentor, she gets her powerup. They didn't make her dumber.

See, my problem with Doki has never been the plot or the bad fighting, given that I enjoyed the heck out of Smile and I'm well aware it has no plot and reuses stock footage like nobody else.

The difference is that I like most of the Smile characters, and even if a character isn't my favorite I never dislike them.

In Doki, there's only one cure I actually like. The rest of the team I either don't care about or downright dislike, and that massively decreases my enjoyment of the show.

Doki really did go through a bunch of cycles of introducing seemingly unlikeable characters, then explaining why they aren't all that bad over time. I think every new character, with the exception of maybe Regina, was disliked at first. Seems like a lot of people either didn't want to stick around for weeks on end to see if they'd like those characters, or just decided they'd dislike them regardless of what happened next. At the end of the day, it's Toei's fault for cramming the plot and filler together in such an obtuse manner.

Doki was never really a team, more like a harem.
The characters don't really have a bound together as a team, but are more connected to mana.
I think this whole harem group thing of doki really became worse when a fifth character was added.

I wouldn't reccomend it. There's not really anything to be gained by going chronologically. The first five seasons in a row are much more similar than the seasons that came after, so it's easy to get burnt out that way.

I'm having plenty of fun but after a few episodes I just lose motivation to keep watching the next episode and then kind of browse 4chan instead.

She already overworked herself to achieve stuff. After the royal crystal thing, she was at the best point possible to demand more effort.

>>100131912
Well, let's put it differently then because I admit I formulated it badly. Ace and Makoto both are the same archetype and have similar motivations to the point where Makoto's already weak role gets completely lost in the noise.

Doki's biggest mistake was crowding up the season so much.

Ace would have been interesting even if there were no sympathetic Regina, if she were the counterpart to Queen Jikochuu or whatever.

Likewise, a sympathetic Regina would have been interesting even if Ace didn't exist at all, and Makoto did all the backstory / veteran / drill sgt / commander stuff.

Doki was great in that it stuffed a lot into the PreCure format, but it tried to do too much and lost its way for a while.

Okay, but then how is Makoto being Ace? That's jst removing Ace completely.

>>100132154
Again, not really. Makoto's motivations were about finding the princess out of one-sided orphan-mother love. She also wasn't big on teamwork because of trauma over watching all her comrades die. Ace's motivations are to get stronger and retake the Trump Kingdom by force out of duty to / love for her country. Given that one of Doki's main themes is the contrast between selfish love and selfless love, I don't think that two characters on opposite sides of that division should be equated.
>>
>>100132328
>a sympathetic Regina would have been interesting even if Ace didn't exist at all
Well, she was before Ace showed up. And would have been even better (and cuter) were it not for that couple TWEESTS.

Let's play "how would you fix dokidoki?"
One major complaint of dokidoki is Regina, or rather the Regina arc.
I have an idea; let's expand it!
But instead of focusing only on Regina and Mana, also focus on the other doki's.
Make a whole episode or more about what they think of Regina and how they slowly befriend her and accept her intro the group.
Another problem; everything about ace.
Let's just get rid of her entirely.
The whole "light and shadow of ange" can easlily get changed into "jikochu of ange" with only regins and ai.
Ai doesn't need to become someone's fairy, all she does is just kyupirapa'ing.

Do you have any good idea's?
>>
>>100132732
Then since Ace is plot relevant, it would probably be a smarter idea to can Makoto.
Which would be terrible, but still.
>>
>>100132590
Sword showed concern for both Ange and the Kingdom separately.
She didn't hold a grudge against Regina because of what happened to Ange, for instance.
And in her case, that duality isn't even divisive.
>>
>>100132732
And I'm saying there wasn't. Sword never played a role similar to Ace. Maybe people would have liked her to, but she never did. And as she was at that point, it wouldn't make sense for her to. It would be a significant change in her character.

If anyone should have taken Ace's role, it should have been Jonathan.
>>
>>100132328
Is the theme here midriffs, or am I looking at a deeper joke?

>Ace would have been interesting even if there were no sympathetic Regina, if she were the counterpart to Queen Jikochuu or whatever.

> Likewise, a sympathetic Regina would have been interesting even if Ace didn't exist at all, and Makoto did all the backstory / veteran / drill sgt / commander stuff.
Facts. The writers need someone to tell them to shut up once in a while without it being toy-related. Also, why don't Cures use fashion and such more? It would make the series more interesting and allow more things that aren't power ups to be pushed.

>>100132590

>>100132820
>Make a whole episode or more about what they think of Regina and how they slowly befriend her and accept her intro the group.
Well, they did. In her first arc and her purple arc. You can say that they didn't do it well, but both of Regina's arcs are definitely divided into character episodes for each Cure.

I think Dokidoki is pretty good already, but while we're wishing, I'd give MakoP more focus. Because she's really cute.
>>
>>100132820
Delete Aguri. Fold Ace into Ai-chan.

Regina's arc and the way the show handled the other characters warming up to her was fine.
>>
>>100133090
It was rather strange when that happened in the purple regina arc.
The characters autimatically agree with mana and want regina to return mana's love.
They are talking to regina as if it supposed to look like they had a strong bound with her while in reality the first regina arc was more mana who got a strong bound with regina.
The episode's where each induvidual character show her love to regina should have been used much earlier during the first regina arc.

I think you can go 2 ways: one would be as you said, cut out Ace. The other would be to shaft everyone and just go with Cure Dead and her companions. Or if that's impossible, make it a two cure show and have plenty of flashbacks with Cure Dead. If they did that, it would help containing Mana's sueness as she would be contending screentime with another powerful cure, even more powerful then her possibly.

Mana is only a bad character if you're taking Doki as a serious narrative work and not just "friendship trumps all, fuck everything else".

As a friendship machine Mana is goddamn great.
>>
>>100133571
Actually, let me expand on that.
Have Mana and Makopi be the only cures. I liked Rikka and Alice as characters, but their role in the story just isn't much. Instead, show that Mana has no friends because her perfection alienates her from other people.
Makopi will eventually become her friend of course, and being the only other cure would mean she could get enough development (unless they fuck up of course). Retain the main plot about finding Ange, but cut off Joe (instead make Makopi do the useful stuff he did, like, you know, finding Ange). Lower Ange's age considerably. Have Regina and Ai combine and become a cure.
Mix in more footage about past cures and the treasures and stuff (even as filler, since there's only 2 cures it's fine).
There you go, 10/10 would favorite.
>>
>>100134082

I don't like this.

Keep Rikka and Alice. Rikka is Mana's best friend and confidant. Alice is a good friend and financial benefactor. Neither of them need to be Cures to fulfill those roles.
>>
>>100134179
It's still hard to go with so few characters. Besides the issue with Sword becoming more relevant than Heart, what would happen in Regina's arc? There's only so much you can do with two cures. And with Makoto being he ronly friend but now angry at Mana for befriending the enemy, things would probably have worked out very differently.

That sounds fucking awesome, except I do like Joe existing because I like how he highlights the difference between absurdly accepting Mana and the sensible one (in your case that would be Makoπ rather than canon which had Rikka in that role). I like how Joe is objectively a fishy character.

I agree on this. I watched Doki staying out of threads for as long as I could, and I was surprised at how much hate she got. People just don't watch many children shows outside of Precure to realize this.

The same thing that happened in the show itself - Mana wants to be her friend and Makoto wants her to fuck off. Everything that was done can be done with those two alone, since Rikka and Alice are ultimately irrelevant even in the show right now.

Alice is completely useless as a Cure, though. It would be better to keep her as a producer and expand that concept throughout the show. Imagine the Cure Batman episode going from filler comedy to something heartfelt and cute when Alice tries to become a Cure through outside means but ultimately doesn't accomplish anything and makes Mana worry about her.

That could work.
I like that idea.
Maybe even create a little subplot about alice being some forgotten childhood friend of mana and trying to get close to her again?
Rikka could also become plot relevant very easily.
Place that ira episode somewhere earlier in the season and use that of the start of another subplot or part of the main plot in some kind of way.

The number of Cures doesn't matter, it's how they're used that's important. Doki's problem is that Diamond and Rosetta aren't even there for the most part. I'm perfectly fine with Manacentricity because I like her as a character and I'm a big fan of "I'M GOING TO BEFRIEND THE SHIT OUT OF YOU" characters, but Doki wasted too much filler on nothing at all.

Take the Ira/Diamond thing and make that more important. Take the Cure Batman thing and make that more important. Even if they're meaningless to the overall Regina/Ace/Ange/BK plot they've at least got some bearing on the minute-by-minute events and interactions with the characters and the world.
>>
>>100133869
Let's face it. If the current staff had any influence whatsoever in HaCha, Mana would be a prominent side character at the very least.

Doki Cures being important in NS3 was granted, but the princess-style carry was a bit much.

In my opinion, a good writer, specially one who is working with Toei and Bandai and specially a kid show should be able to adapt to the toy commercial whims and don't let it affect their story. Just look at Urobuchi and Gaim right now.

>Yomiuri: A lot of the Kamen Rider Gaim viewers are watching the show, purely after seeing your job on Madoka. How does that make you feel?
Gen Urobuchi: It does make me happy that the show is getting attention, but I’d like to remind people that it’s two different shows. I might be writing both and they’re both airing on TV, but it’s two completely different things. Kamen Rider isn’t airing during the night, it’s a children’s TV show airing Sunday mornings. I have to think about the toys when I’m writing, so this isn’t gonna be like anything I’ve written before.

Nigga knew how to adapt.

And honestly? It didn't affect the story, from day 1 Doki has been The Mana Show, which is the original intention of the writers as they have said many times. The only way Alice's becoming a Cure affected anything was make Alicefags mad because her character ended up a big ball of nothing like 3/4 of the cast.

But hey, at least Alice's character was not assassinated like Makoto.

Sounds good to me. Maybe they could go out for a chocolate parfait.

I'm not saying that they should stop making teams of 4 or more Cures, jsut saying to maybe make one team with 2 or 3 Cures every once in a while. At least we're getting 2/3 starting Cures now.

Urobuchi is much better at writing long-form works than simple anime series, and he has a lot more time to develop characters and character relationships with Gaim so I'm sure that helps, but it's really surprising how well he's adapted to writing around toys and upgrades and stuff. We're 13 episodes into Gaim and nothing feels superfluous at all.

Precure would be much better if the writers could approach it in the same way, with an unfolding plot and arcs rather than having to shoehorn a bunch of stock footage into every episode.

Haven't watched SS yet saving the best for later but the formula I mean is adding one Cure mid-season and another Cure near the end.

I guess it's also the HC formula?

He has more leeway when it comes to the story since he's allowed to have more violence, and the age range is higher, so he can have deeper stories and dialogues. It's weird to admit, but the stories in Precure are the way they are because they don't want anything complicated that would confuse little girls. Doki is as complicated as it's ever gotten.
