Precure thread: Alice is best Doki edition
You better cultivate some love for Cure Heart or you're going to be a sad camper.
While her episodes are all great, she does suffer from a lack of screen time.
Still better than Buki, Miki, Itsuki, and Nao though.
Lemonade please Alice is Itsuki tier as far as yellows goes. At first she looked like she would be cool but soon enough she just faded into the background with a few good episodes and a nice shield save every now and again.
You forgot Rin don't worry most people do
Itsuki didn't even get a few good episodes. Her debut episode and the episode after was cool and her finale fight was decent, but that's it.
Rin was shat on, but she didn't suffer from a lack of screen time.
Which Precure has the most porn?
This is a very important question.
Makoto is the only one that doesn't look terrible.
The answer is so easy I'm surprised you even need to ask.
Not Splashstar that's for sure
Your favorite. If your imagination is worth shite.
Why couldn't she find love
Yellow Cure Power Ranking
Plot Important/Screen time hog
3+ stand out episodes
1 arc wonder
I like Itsuki.
Makopi can swing any outfit, damn.
Hibiki looks pretty good.
Mana looks halfway decent.
Kanade is shrugging too hard.
Ako is somehow even bitchier than usual.
It's a shame she got eclipsed by Moonlight.
Although I do find it funny when she first showed up people were mad about how OP she was. Then Moonlight comes back and facerolls everyone and no one has a problem with it.
Rin got about 10 more episodes of screentime than she deserved
The only instrument Suite never plays is the love triangle.
Forgot my pic
>she got eclipsed by Moonlight
I admit I laughed
Moonlight was sold early on as super-powerful but emotionally broken, so when she got her swag back, it was pretty natural for her to steamroll the usual foes.
Sunshine girl was a n00b to the Cure gig so her being super-powerful was kind of unexpected, even if it nicely showcased how weak Tsubomi was in battle.
i want to lick not-nagisa's salty eyebrows
That would have been a good plot line to go down even if we all know that a love triangle would never find it's way into precure.
What I would have liked to see was a Ellen/Ako bonding episodes with a little Hummy on the side.
Why does Tsubomi have a crush on every boy?
I just noticed how absurdly slutty Mana's casual skirt is
A natural breeder.
She's a fujoshi in training.
The relationship(s) would never go anywhere, of course, but they could have done some fun things with jealousy.
How would you improve Rin so that boys (or girls) want to be her romantic partner?
Someone needs to edit Queen Bavarois next to Rin in this picture.
>Sunshine girl was a n00b to the Cure gig so her being super-powerful was kind of unexpected
Itsuki was a martial artist set to heir her own Dojo.
I'd be surprised if she wasn't superpowered.
At CQC, sure.
Is it just me or Rikka is the only DokiDoki that did her hand sign only once.
No one expected her to go Macross though.
Rikka did her second one during summer.
When? the Ira episode?
Fun things are MANDATORY.
Yeah, during the fight with Gula.
I forgot she even had a roll call.
This is going to be our collective albatross, isn't it.
>subs are delayed
>low budget HaCha episode
>Sunshine could take on the Queen of CQC
Your memory's fucked up if you can't remember when she did it in the helicopter episode. That was only a few months ago.
Imagine if she actually was a character in HaCha.
Hey, I just said she ought to be powerful at CQC, not that she ought to beat Honoka.
Nobody is allowed to beat Honoka.
>Imagine if she actually was a character in HaCha.
No, she's the prime minister mandating Precure subsidies.
I want a 3 cure team. No additions, no red herrings, no starting with 2 and ending with 3. Just exactly 3 all season. I wonder if 2015 will be the year of 3.
Not enough toys aside, why do you want a boring season?
I haven't seen this one yet.
I am fine with the lack of love triangles in Suite cause it focused on the one ship I really did care about.
Bandai is too in love with the "sixth ranger" trope. That'll never happen.
Thanks for the pic.
>Queen Mirage is Cure age
I'm not a... whatever you call a Pretty Cure fan. Just a lurker slowly getting into things, but... there are men in Precure?
I want an OVA of Teen Ako's Embarrassing Love Adventure.
Hey a three person team can be pretty fun if done right
Not stars, and not magical fighters (mostly), but yes. There are men. Sometimes the girls even like them.
Why would 3 be boring? Or no additions?
3 is actually a great number because it allows for a good number of combinatorial stock footage things, which probably means more toys.
Doki Doki has a lot of bara material if you're into that. A lot of series have pretty boys as well. I'd recommend Yes 5.
Precure is het as hell, yes.
Precure sometimes have romances as sideplots, other times they are fully developed and important, and other times it's just barely hinted.
Poor Daisuke, he'll never win the Love
>Souta walking home from High school
>A girl that likes him walks up
>They talk when they a hear a tune on the wind
>Souta remembers a girl he liked from his youth
>The tune gets louder and a rainbow road shows up
>Ako in full princess gear shows up with instruments that are playing themselves
Souta I chose you to be my consort
The one in the pic is said Queen Mirage/Cure age?
>Souta I chose you to be my concert
He should have earned his cure waifu like westar did. If you want to have sex with a cure then you need to work for it.
or be rich
No, the pic only says that she's Queen Mirage. I simply was pointing out that she looked about the same age as a usual Cure.
Her battle form will be an old hag, believe it.
Queen is Hime's mirror image.
Better than being forced to share with others.
>I already did the stage greeting yesterday, but anyway they're telling me now that the movie was a big hit!
>Thanks so much to everyone! ♥
>Hey you there, you who hasn't watched it yet!
>If you don't see it, it's your loss~ (lol)
>Since Nikaidou-kun told me he didn't see it yet, I decided to go see it with him this weekend~!
>I invited Rikka too, so it will be the three of us ♪
>Though it will be the third time I see it~ (^_^)
You know at first I wasn't down with how in Suite their eye color didn't match their hair, however now I see that it really brings out a lot in each of the girls cure forms
No, that's Namakeruda. He becomes the Green Cure.
>He becomes the Green Cure.
Oh, then fuck my reading comprehension.
She somehow doesn't have that big bad feeling
>Queen is Hime's mirror image.
I consider myself very positive about DokiDoki, but maybe this fucking time they could do the whole "Regina and Aguri" thing right.
Why does Toei hate green cures? Do little girls not like the color green? I heard on TV that the color green isn't very popular in fashion. Maybe that's why we only have two green cures.
Originally I found the Suite designs to be over-complicated, with too much detail, but I grew to like them during the show.
The eyes never bothered me.
I posted that originally, but I personally don't consider middle schoolers lolis.
It's still surprising though.
Are there only two generals?
These are certainly unique designs.
Alice is a Yellorangreen.
The two green cures we've had have been bad, so it's OK.
Who is better at befriending Mana or Genta? I have to but my money on Genta for befriending someone who killed him
Bite your tongue.
I doubt it. One of them is the main boss and the other is the general. I really doubt that there's only one; after all, there's the whole international invasion thing.
Queen Mirage isn't a general, she's the main villain (until black goo monster appears anyway, I'd guess)
Maybe we're back to one bad guy at a time scheme
Oh wait, that girl is Mirage? Fuck
I'm not completely sure that's something I'd like. It does lend itself to faster pacing though.
The civilian form's eye color is actually the color of Fairy Tones used for their attacks, although they're switched between two Cures.
Hibiki > dark blue > Tiry
Kanade > green > Sory
Ellen > yellow > Fary
Ako > orange > Miry
The twist is that she's a literal mirage meant to lure the Cures into a trap.
Ban this filth
Well, fuck you.
Would it hurt to pick up two Precure series at once? I've narrowed down the one I'm starting with to Heartcatch and Smile but I can't decide which, so I'm thinking of just watching both and hopping inbetween them every time I've had too much of one.
No. Watching as many seasons simultaneously as you can stomach is the best way to experience Precure.
Just do it, you'll probably focus on one eventually and finish it first.
Start with Futari wa or Splash Star
Precure is usually pretty episodic, so it should be fine.
Do not listen to this little girl.
Okay, okay. Siry.
I thought it's Ti in English. Like in that old song.
Sounds good, I'll go boot up those torrents and be back with wrong opinions in a week.
I really with we get another hard hitting fist fighting cure season again. All this beam spamming is getting old
Holy shit why haven't I picked this up yet
Why don't you tell him to start Heisei Kamen Rider with Kuuga and Agito. One should work their way up to the best, because if you start with the best seasons then all the other don't look as good
Smile references in GoGo? Toei confirmed for bros.
But Kuuga and Agito are the best seasons
Hime is weak warrior, a poor princess, shy, but good at heart.
She stares into her Pretty Change Mirror, and on the other side, a strong willed girl crowns herself queen, surrounds herself with comrades, and sets out on a course of villainy.
As Hime become stronger, the Queen becomes weaker. As Hime gains friends, the Queen finds her generals scheming against her. As Hime becomes a beacon of good, the Queen becomes hated itself.
As the finale draws near, a weak, angry, Queen is surrounded by her own minions. Can the Precure save her? WILL they?!
Because you're doing it wrong. The original Precure is in fact one of the best. Go watch it now.
With the dancing theme we'll probably end up with purification barriers and stuff.
Then again Seiji could end up being some sort of martial arts mentor for the girls.
The Japs try to save her, but the Americans blast her into oblivion.
It has a lot of good elements, but is also flawed.
That is the point one shouldn't start with the best cause then it sets the bar too high. You should start with a cure series that is W or OOO tier and work your way up. It is better to start with a ok series so you know what the standard is and then check out the best of the best.
>It has a lot of good elements, but is also flawed.
Nothing is perfect, Anon.
Aida Mana is perfect.
Nehelenia 2.0? Oh man that sounds wild.
I really hope Hapcha knocks it out. It looks good on paper however the last show I was hyped for that looked good on paper was Wizard and we all know how that turned out
Not him, but I remember they actually transmitted that series a year or two ago here in my country Mexico, but they did it like at 3am and the episodes order was all fucked up. I've also seen DVDs of the series, literally piles of them, around $0.90 US (I believe they had 3 or 4 episodes), in grocery stores.
>That first scene (and that first episode in general, I guess)
It was so fucking good.
Imagine if this was Young Hunters tier.
You'ld think that Toei would care about a anniversary season, but no.
Ah well, it has HC's director and Yes 5's writer. I don't think it'll turn out too bad. I'm expecting it to be Fresh tier.
>You'ld think that Toei would care about a anniversary season, but no.
No what? What do you expect them to do? All Stars for anniversary is a terrible idea.
In my shitty opinion I'll never understand why so many people like Agito THAT much, it was a fest of wasted potential.
>it was a fest of wasted potential.
Everything ever, I'm really tired of reading this type of "con" here.
I would a Bunbee.
Is it too much to hope they hit gold twice just think if two Super hero time show were watchable.
ps too bad trainranger is going to be a train wreak
>it was a fest of wasted potential.
Elaborate or bait.
Why the hell would they air a little girls anime at fucking 3am?
>it was a fest of wasted potential.
Just like your mom and every show fucking ever.
Nah, I was referring to Digimon. Only good things about Young Hunters were any nostalgia from previous seasons, Arresterdramon, and the terribly animated crossover episode.
Sorry but Salamander is my villain Husbando he good looking and good with kids what is not to like
The mooks look pretty swag. The mech is shit, but I wouldn't count it out yet. In fact, I'm expecting it to be traintastic.
One can only hope Hapcha has a true ally of justice like Sid
I love that doujin.
A good thing it's cannon.
People would complain too much about HaCha not being Precure though, which is arguably the point of a new era.
Don't for get that the suits are ugly as sin and the cast looks like rejects from Gokaiger and Goseiger.
Fuck I could live with shitty ranger suits if the cast was ok. They really need to get the guy who did the casting for Shinkenger that man knew what he was doing
>Still called precure
>Trying to not be precure
>They really need to get the guy who did the casting for Shinkenger that man knew what he was doing
They did get that guy for Tokkyuger
I don't get people who watch Sentai not for cool hotblooded action but for fucking LOOKS OF THE CAST. Are you all girls?
Fuck that shit. Its only redeeming points are what >>101256542 said. And it's mainly because of pic related.
> Are you all girls?
I wouldn't be surprised at the amount of 3D pigs who post here with such terrible taste.
Holy fuck calm down! "Wasted potential" was probably me being too much of a prick. It's just that for the most part of the series I disliked pretty much every single character (the bad acting, even for a Tokusatsu series, didn't help), the changeforms were all boring, the Akatsuki members story was pretty much irrelevant if it weren't for Kino (I admit I liked him and Gills quite a lot), the rushed ending and the bad drama, the terrible G3 team story, the amnesia was also barely relevant even once it was cured.
These are all opinions, ok? I myself have Kuuga as my favorite and I can understand some people don't like it.
Have you seen the new cast. Hell they might as well have gone all in and just make this the sentai series to have a female red lead the team from the start.
They've been doing this for a while now with male leads.
Alata looked like a fuccboi and was fucking badass when it counted. I'm sorry, I don't subscribe to your profiling narration.
Probably not a virgin
Do we know who voices the dude yet?
Alata and Gosei Knight were the only good things to come out of Goseiger. More so the females look like they aren't going to be much fun at all. Granted Sentai has been dropping the ball with female characters for a while now.
Why can't we have another Sakura
>no loli daki for Rin
It might have existed at some point deleted for some reason.
Well, the point of this and these
is that the characters share names. Except in the second pic, only one of them share his name with a Cure (guess who).
You're such a cool kid.
Would still cuddle that Tsubomi.
I can't get behind this one, I'm afraid.
10/10 would Yaranaika
I'm conflicted guys, the more I watch Precure the harder it is to sexualize them. How'd you guys deal with this?
I just popped a boner over Ellen.
Just... don't sexualize them? Fap to other things.
But who's going to be Ace?
Mephisto. He even has the red hair.
I pay more attention to fan works. Canon doesn't sexualize, of course you're going to have trouble if you only pay attention to canon.
That... actually works, I suppose.
Fap to the men instead.
Nothing out of the ordinary.
Why is Baritone so moe?
Wow those costumes suck.
You'd think they'd shell out at least more than five bucks to advertise their toys.
All the more to put into their Maserati fund.
I don't think it's necessary for them to sell.
I like their legs.
Can you guess which eye belong to which Cure?
Even Moonlight's eyes are edgy.
20 is Hibiki and 31 is Makopi
I'm pretty sure 3, 8, 17, 28, and 32 belong to the Smiles.
I think I got most of them, but I really can't be bothered writing it all out.
Fuck the rest (although it's very easy to tell Doki and Fresh apart)
Pretty sure 29 is not Nagisa. I can tell from the salty eyebrow.
Her eyes almost make her look like a character from Kasshern
And I misspelled his name while it was RIGHT FUCKING THERE. brb. Killing myself
She's the edgiest.
who is 3? Those are some amazing eye lashes
So edgy, that she her hair bands shines like a sword in every transformation.
The anime was void of any location, yet the colors were kinda vivid.
Pretty average for a remake.
I didn't follow it very much. It was kinda one of those shows that you have on while you're doing something else entirely to me.
>The anime was void of any location
These are sad words.
Casshan Sins was great. You're supposed to immerse yourself in the empty loneliness so deeply that you're cut on all the edge.
I mean, I got it. I kinda liked it...but I guess I didn't give it much of a chance willit was on Toonami...especially considering how late it always came on.
I hate myself for involuntarily wincing at this.
It's never really been the same since the old days. It's still okay now, but...remember the good old days when Outlaw Star and Tenchi Muyo were on there?
Pepperidge Farm remembers.
I miss Precure series with younger looking designs ;_;
Hey, I enjoy Toonami, but I'm not as casual as you think.
You don't sound very convincing.
Well you gotta give me some credit, I watch Precure.
You're not supposed to turn your TV on at any time other than Sunday mornings.
But...but the weather...
Little girls watch precure. It's not an accomplishment.
Date A Live?
Full Metal Panic?
HC, Futari wa and HC is probably the youngest we've had.
C'mon, what do you want from me, man?
I can guess by eyebrows.
21 edgy Yuri
24 Ako with dem eyelashes
25 or 14 Erika's rape eye
You're really going to have to try harder than that.
Okay, what do you recommend?
Going away and posting your own rec thread. /a/ loves that.
>Okay, what do you recommend?
This thread is a kind and gentle place, but please go away.
I want to watch HaCha first ep live but all streams were are full, at least for Doki finale.
Are there gonna be other streams other than the justin one? Cause that one doesn't work well for me.
You clearly weren't trying hard enough. There are multiple streams for which "full" is not a thing.
There always are. Check /m/'s SHT thread if none get posted here.
Pardon my image; meant for >>101260072
Guess I'll just see myself out and make that thread or something.
Child-bearing loli hips
My god, 2D is such a wonderful world.
>I want to watch HaCha first ep live but all streams were are full, at least for Doki finale.
I'm working on a backup.
Ok, will check /m/ then, thanks!
How do you think Yayoi would feel if her mother got a much younger gaijin boyfriend? This is important.
I want to be that boyfriend.
She would cry?
She'd either be completely terrified or think he's pretty neat.
Or somewhere in between.
Quick, give me an ETA for HaCha first episode.
I would be the boyfriend to randomly dress as a Kamen Rider and impress her
~32.5 hours to go
Did I get my maths and timezones right?
I think the better route would be to dress as Spiderman or Green Latern to harp on your mysterious and KAKKOI~ factor.
Does "impress" mean rape?
It airs on the 2nd of February at 8:30pm UTC+9.
You tell me.
That only works if I get her full affection.
1 day, 10 hours, 5 minutes.
>Implying rape isn't the fastest way into Yayoi's heart
Rape is worst fetish next only to NTR.
why is Passion so pale? This is vampire-tier
What? with like Stockholm syndrome?
No, not at all.
Vampires usually have ashen skin.
Is there a tinge of pink? It's not nearly pale enough.
No, with a lot of force and a very long dick.
That would be kidnapping.
Dokidoki reference in Fresh? Toei confirmed for bros.
I want to kidnap Yoyo.
All the Labyrinth people are pale.
Tried giving her a tan. It looked awful.
Makes sense, it's not exactly a place of happy sunshine.
Typing that long argument yesterday made me wonder: who are the Cures' close friends who called them with just their given name? I could only think of Waon and Souta.
Who cares? Make one up if you need one for your fanfiction.
That's it. Goodbye forever, /pc/. See you again when HapCha finale kicks in.
First you're using stethoscopes to listen to trees, now you're going to stare at the sun?
How did Honoka end up as club president?
Because everyone is secretly scared of her. With good reason.
All the other nerds thought they'd get bullied less if they put the super-hot girl in charge.
Because she's really cute.
I'll drop by again sometimes, don't worry.
I'm going to finish my backlogged games. Also, college. And I'll continue writing my long-abandoned Ragnarok Online fic.
Goodbye for real now.
Don't question science.
>that face censoring method
I wouldn't question Honoka.
You can hear trees pretty well in the spring, just pick something with thin bark.
See, that's Doki's problem right there. It didn't have any healthy eaters. Aguri liked sweets, but we only ever see her indulging during her introduction arc, and even then it was om small things here and there.
Rikka or Makopi should have been healthy.
If I wanted to listen to bark, I'd play with my dogs.
Who is Malmo, that gluttonous pig.
Something about this feels off somehow.
...I thought Honoka was smart. In fact, I don't remember this scene at all. I must've forced myself to forget
It should feel off. It's the smiles using the Yes5's transformation items.
That's a given, but they also altered the color palette. Rin's isn't red and Nao has a lighter shade of green.
From what I understand you listen for the water getting pulled up by the roots up the tree and how it mixes with natural pockets of air in it. Sounds feasible enough though I've just read about it now so can't really be sure. I ain't as smart as Honoka.
And Echo isn't purple.
What are you expecting from HaCha's first episode?
How high will the new pink jump?
tfw the only justification for wearing that in public is being a little girl or a young grill
I just want to see Cure Princess pull off the Joestar secret technique
She won't jump at all, she's gonna go straight to punching the monster
Please let the Cures have friends with significant screentime this season.
Please no, we don't need anything taking screentime from cures
I'm excited guys, new season is so close
Chiari's becoming a Precure...
At least she'll get to transform more than twice.
But what if the bad guys make a pitfall monster?
Miyuki made the mistake that she didn't have a toast in her mouth, which is why she met Candy.
Damn i started to watch this shit in 2011, and im still excited for the new season. And now i barely watch anime besides this.
I'm horribly excited to see Cherry Flamenco in action but most likely it won't show in the first episode. It's Wizard-level fabulous.
She'll jump towards the monster and thus cause a shitload of collateral damage. Afterward all is said and done, Blue descends from the heavens with tons of swag and snaps to fix everything.
I want one
So will the Hapcha forms not have any actual powers? I guess it's just going to be a different finisher dance thing?
Nice blog but here is not the place.
We don't know at all. It'll be weird if humanoid MotW didn't fight.
>ever having swag
A scaredycat like her will never solve a conflict with style.
/r/ HaCha Decade
It's still a blog, faggot. Length doesn't matter.
It looks a lot better with golden accents instead of yellow. I wish they would have kept that on the animation.
I could have sworn that the ikemen spirit of the earth was named Blue.
wow rude and uncalled for
But Megumi isn't fighting until episode 2, Anon.
JP Happiness main human character, same VA as Cure Princess.
The pompadour card will save her.
QUICK, I NEED AN ETA
All those outfits are lewd somehow.
1d 07h 45m
The time has come and so have I.
How often will they change outfits? Can I dream for a new outfit every episode?
Why can't their hair be longer
What, they only have two each
Gen with his hair down makes me feel strange things.
It needs to show Hime's super short air hostess skirt.
I want to lick sherbert ballet's collarbones
I would follow her into battle
Would five megabytes on images kill moot's servers forever?
Princess keeps turning around to run away, sees your expectant face, and hesitantly marches forward
finally she gets the maid oufit or the cheerleader outfit once every 20 episodes
Go eat a fox dick, Nozomi.
If she was afraid then I would lay down my life to protect her
He's talking about their disguises
Like ninja, detective, etc.
I also hope this gimmick will be used often.
God, I can't wait to see how they transform fully.
Haven't been this excited since Gaim's transformation last year.
That's just what Cures need, more ways to alienate themselves from their peers.
This reminds me, this week's a double whammy of new transformations.
That doesn't look so good. Gaim's designs started out strong, but have been getting shittier and shittier every episode.
Donning costumes to trick enemies / solve problems are a staple of classical mahou shoujo anon
I like the concept of using the Genesis Driver's part with the Sengoku Driver.
Makes for an insane combination.
Here's hoping for Ichigo Arms, Jinba Cherry.
That's some real shit taste you have
And they stopped being used because people realized how shit they were. The classics are classics for a reason.
Look at it, it barely has a theme anymore. It's just a bunch of grey and black slabs with tribal marks on them.
Silly Hibiki, you can't go to the sweets kingdom. That's Fresh's territory.
In Kamen Rider, what matters is not what the suits look like, but how do they put them on.
The Japanese samurai theme is still there, stop being stupid.
Doremi used them and its the greatest mahou shoujo of our times.
It's like 6 years old. Not my times.
How do I posted image?
It's more than 10 years old.
Kanade, you're not mktn, stop being knpk.
Wow, I don't think I knew what anime was back then.
You can only choose one.
Springy hair girl.
He is kind of right in that it's more and more samurai and less and less fruit. Compare the usual Gaim that's like 80% orange to this that only has the coat of lemons and the rest is just classic armor.
>>101267014 has a point about >>101266808. I still think most of the designs are good though, with the exception of Bravo, Sigurd, Knuckle and Fifteen.
It's okay kid, you will understand one day.
The fruit thing is to sell toys, the overall theme is the sengoku period and samurai. Gaim is going to be a shogun by the end of the show.
>Not liking Bravo
This is Bananas!
Sasorina or Majorina.
what does Rina or Ina mean in japanese? Or its just a coincidence?
Just to make the name sound female.
If you're going to have recurring side characters at all, they need at least some screentime otherwise why have them at all
SS was the best at this
No side characters then, I watch this shit for the cures
Alright, this has officially gotten 2lewd for children's cartoon. Dem Hime legs
No side characters at all though and you run into Smile's problem which made everything feel removed from the antics of the Cures.
Magical girl shows need side characters in some capacity, particularly when it comes to parents, especially parents
On scale of hetero to Doki, how gay do you want HaCha to be?
I want the most bisexual season ever.
I've never watched PreCure, but I know it's probably something I would enjoy. Are there any series that are complete shit and are to be avoided? Where should I start?
Throw in fairysexual too.
Just pick one that isn't gogo or max heart
>Are there any series that are complete shit and are to be avoided?
>Where should I start?
Mammo = Sasorina > Majorina > Northa > Desparia > Poisonny > The rest
Sigurd has an outstanding design. Knuckle is a nut tier design that works well for an underling. Fifteen is a movie design, doesn't count.
But he's right
You can start with anything other than the sequel seasons >>101268223
Heartcatch or Splash Star are generally regarded as the best. Dokidoki is the gayest, if you're into that.
If you're up for following weekly, the newest season is starting tomorrow.
I started with Heartcatch, then Fresh. Both were good, though the latter gets it's fair share of quality.
Then went on to Smile, Futari Wa and Doki, though I personally wasn't impressed.
I don't think anybody's translated HaCha's OP yet, so I went ahead and tried to make my own translation.
Start with Happinesscharge Precure, premiering tomorrow and watch with us. Every other comment saying you should avoid a non-sequel season should be ignored.
I suggest we put this in every OP.
Shou ga nai, /a/. I'm getting on this wild ride with you.
Link to this?
Warning: We will spoil all the seasons if you hang around here.
Thanks. I'm out.
>I'm getting on this wild ride with you.
The ride never ends.
>I don't think anybody's translated HaCha's OP yet
I have, but Precure generals are doing a terrible job at keeping the news visible (although it's also posted at the LJ, so it's your fault~)
Come TL check for me on Hapicha? Complementary cookies will be offered.
Somewhere around Fresh level but with development at Y5's level.
I used to kind of be against the whole guy thing but after Doki, I think focusing too much in the other direction isn't really that good either and considering Narita's writing, I want to see him at his best.
Well, I'll be honest, I wouldn't use Doki as a starter season either. It'd be like recommending Wizard as a first KR
>(although it's also posted at the LJ, so it's your fault~)
I don't know LJ as anything other than the place that sometimes pops up in google search results for Precure.
>actually having a LJ
It was my starter season and I loved it. It made me completely unable to enjoy FW because Nagisa is so terrible compared to Mana.
This is bait
Also, I've actually been trying to refine the OP TL during the week
You'll find if you're posting about watching a series, the spoilers for that season mysteriously disappear.
As an MC or as a person?
ZING ZING AMAZING.
ZING ZING ZING ZING AMAZING.
Damn that's poofy.
There's a Precure LJ community. It's pretty lively although there's a lot of kids and non-native English speakers so it's kinda painful at times. They can be helpful.
Hahahaaaaa... Not true. You'll start discussing them when you think the watcher is out of earshot.
>Nagisa worse than Mana Sue
Get out and never come back please.
ZING ZING ZING ZING
The fact that it's Advanced SubStation Alpha will never not make me giggle immaturely.
>Precure generals are doing a terrible job at keeping the news visible
That's the way it always is though, things get posted once or twice and they disappear. You don't want the alternative.
Is there a frontpage for this or something?
I will fight you nigga
You'd better change that regular font styling.
I expect a "CHARGE FOR YOU" doujin from the same artist who did "SMILE FOR YOU".
Yeah, we're gonna need some Comic Sans if this supposed to be a serious sub.
I think 16 is Komachi, not Honoka.
Now that's some shit taste right there.
No, LT Finnegan or bust.
Which one exactly?
Translation font is the same one Commie used for OPEDs, I think it's pretty fitting when it's next to kanji lyrics.
As for the romaji, well, you'll see where that choice came from.
You will never silence my hatred for Nagisa.
SHIAWASE NO VIBRATIONS
I used to like Nagisa. Then I watched Max Heart...
Full HaCha OP when?
Second week of march
That comparison is pretty much the reason why Doki should not be watched as the first season. It gives sort of a wrong impression about the franchise,
Nagisa's all about the chemistry she has with Honoka along the way. She isn't by any means the great leader Mana is, but simply Honoka's best friend. Which is really all that matters.
Which season is the "typical" one then? Which one is representative for all the other seasons?
Good, can´t wait.
Is it me or have you forgot
? You have it translated but not romanized.
From shit to just be avoided as a first season is a long way mate.
That may be true, but I'm glad I didn't watch FW first. I would have stopped there.
There is no exact representatise I think, but I personally suppose FW/Yes! 5/Heartcatch (maybe I can iclude Suite too) are a good starting point.
It doesn't have romaji because it's a spoken line, not part of the song. Presumably, is going to change between episodes.
Oh, that makes sense.
Have not watched it, are the two on the bottom right lesbians?
Yes. Yes they are.
>skin color inbetween each button
I like what you are implying here, Haruyama.
Finally some stock that I like.
Remember when haruyama used to depict pubic hair on cures too, not only on milfs/cure moms?
I sure do because that was my fetish. ;_;
No, they're perfectly normal young ladies
Sasuga haruyama, but I find it difficult to care this time, maybe because she's not one of those gorgeous Cures.
Pure girls don't have pubic hair. It's a well-known fact.
Most Cures aren't pure.
Oh, and I completely forgot to mention why I'm again Doki as starter season in more detail.
Basically, it plays with and defies usual franchise standarts A LOT (it lightly trolls the franchise while still being part of it, if I may say that, I'm not exactly sure how I should put this), therefore it gives wrong impression. It is also PACKED with insane loads of references to everything, LOTS of yuri moments, and is more one-character-who-saves-the-day-centered (there IS a reason why Mana is called Mana Sue) instead of usual teamwork (it's not completely forgotten though, but still). Therefore it is not really suited to be a starter season.
Yayoi smiling all the way through this episode warms my heart.
Nobody cares. Doki is pretty much one of the worst Precure series.
It's time to stop.
It's not even suited to be a Precure season to begin with.
CANDY ISNT SCARED AT ALL KURU
This reminds me of when Smile finished airing.
enough of your funposting
Other way around, pal.
Only sluts shave themselves outside of bathing seasons.
People said the same about Smile.
I think she's losing her path
And Doki somehow did worse.
>Only sluts shave themselves outside of bathing seasons.
I knew there was a reason why I liked paipan. Sluts are the best.
Well, yeah, Doki wasn't around yet.
>People said the same about Smile.
IMO, it's accurate to both. Both Smile and Doki have the exact opposite problems and go too far in different directions for either of them to be decent
you will never feel that hidamari pokapoka
If you started with Doki and you liked it, that's all that matters. Not everyone has the time and patience to watch the other 400 episodes. If they do want to go back, that's fine, but absolutist statements of should or shouldn't are too narrow minded.
Keep posting that, you might attract others with tastes as shit as yours to join in. Fact still remains though, your tastes are shit.
On a scale from Pure to Mktn: not having pubic hair is on the pure end, having it is in the middle, having it but shaving is all the way to the right.
Except Smile is fun and Doki is 2serious4me.
Also, fun is a buzzword
>tomorrow HappinessCharge PreCure! will finally help me forget the shitty excuse of a PreCure season that Dokidoki! PreCure was
Yeah, but I guess there are people who think the other way around as well.
>hating on smile
I liked my team of damedame precures.
Your mum is buzzword
Smile was fun, but it was so fun that it forgot that it was a Precure season except when it really counted (which was admittedly more than Doki in that regard), more importantly its bias towards big friends didn't help at all
>Smile more fun than Doki
I'll fight you mate.
What if HapCha ends up being worse than Doki?
Not in Haruyama's canon. Or mine.
>hating on doki
I liked my not-team of reliant on Mana precures.
It's just like when Wizard ended!
The funposters are really genki today.
No doubt about that
>A few months later, you'll be pretend to hate it
Come at me
I kill myself and my neighbors too.
They managed to make a season even worse than Suite, I wouldn't put it past them but I'm hoping for the best.
Not even important enough to be counted: Hikari
It's just different from others, with a different approach, but not different enough to not belong to the franchise. I'm not sure if it worked for me if it wasn't connected to the franchise; Doki actually heavily depends on other seasons, it needs them to play with the usual standarts and defy them to some degree.
And personally I don't find any Precure season really bad and unbearable (I still have to watch Smile and GoGo though, and I heard pretty opposite opinions about them).
So much Doki hate. It's alright to admit you enjoyed a show that's not afraid to take risks.
I want HaCha to air already.
I thought the same when Mana went heavy close combat with the generals in the first episodes. I was naive and thought they went back to regular good fights and stuff like that. Smile was going to be just a bad year and that would be it.
Only months after I realized that it was only the first symptom of Mana being a Sue.
Now I try to have no expectations for HaCha and pray I will not be let down.
I have significant more faith in Narita
About the only risk it took was Toei having such a loose handling of the inexperienced staff.
Remember that we are on 4chan, after all.
You know, I'm trying to articulate my opinions without just calling it all "its shit" here. That doesn't mean I'm shitposting
Are Doki and Smile the most divisive seasons yet?
She's technically not a Cure.
It's interesting to see that a season as tame and non-offensive as Smile can be so divisive.
Reminder that the dance attack is in 3DCG
Business as usual in /pc/
What risks? The "let's fuck up the flow of our own show by making the character that everyone thinks is going to become a Cure not become a Cure just to be different" risk and the "let's make our circlejerking over our wish fulfillment waifu evident in every episode ever and forget about the other characters" risk?
>Kono Kyua Laburi muteki nandakara!
That really scares me. I hope she is not serious.
No, they're just the most recent. We never agree on anything, we just get tired of arguing after a couple years.
You still see people talk abot how ugly Suite is how much better GoGo is than Yes 5 occasionally, but it doesn't draw up the same amount of interest.
It offended the viewers intelligence repeatedly.
Smile is objectively the best season, because it did what it said in the title. It made me smile.
I think she's just super-excited at becoming a Precure.
Please don't remind me. The height of shitposting mid-Smile was the only time in years I actually abandoned /a/ completely. It was too much.
Fresh was pretty fresh.
That's when it was finally chased out of /a/.
It's not alone; Dokidoki make my heart beat faster. Or really, MakoP did. And HaCha is charging my happiness already.
>that fairy voice
>there will never be another Precure thread as fun as the Smile threads
Makopi is so fucking ugly.
You're not taking it in context. The full line is "As long as I have love in my heart, I'm invincible!" or something like that. There's nothing wrong with her being super-enthusiastic about love.
Though, honestly, I'd prefer Mana 2.0: Gay Harder.
And just when I thought taste couldn't get shittier.
In terms of fan reaction, maybe.
In terms of like the actual shows themselves, completely. They are literally the opposite of each other (neither way good)
I used to think Makoto was ugly, then she started singing in the middle of a fight.
Please do not bully the MakoP
I watched Futari wa, and I'm still alone...
Yeah, no. That is not business as usual. That was just shit
Oh god, why would you want a repeat of the first half Smile threads? That wasn't fun, that was awful
If your cardiac pulse were based on Doki's stock footage quality, you should be dead already before even reaching that episode.
Say what you want about MakoP, but Cure Sword looks fantastic.
Sorry, I can't hear you over the beating of my heart.
She said it. You said she wouldn't but she said it.
Why does she likes frogs so much?
Because her parents never come home.
>FEMALE TRAINER Megumi wants to battle!
>FEMALE TRAINER Megumi sent out LICKITUNG!
They're cute, anon.
Because they're kawaii as fuck
I can't pretend to henshin if I put in a picture of a Cure.
because they're cute, duh
>Inserts the card
>"Can't read the card"
What a shitty toy
That transformation theme doesn't sound very charging.
Welcome to Precure merchandise.
Is any of it any good?
Previous ones were better, yes.
Agreed. They should bring back more functional toys.
Still better than a tablet
They are cheap plastic toys with sound effect for little girls. Do you really expect anything good or worthwhile?
If I ever had a young daughter, I would never buy her such things
Not really. It's crazy how much worse Precure toys are than Kamen Rider and Super Sentai toys.
Previous ones were fucking tablet computers.
But Sentai toys are the same fucking thing, just not in pink
I bet you could get a real guitar used for around the same price.
I can't really see how you would play with that, except by yourself (and only until you've tried out all the effects). Toys you can actually play with (swords, dolls, etc.) are better.
can someone post the ad for this toy? I can find it in youtube
Thats the point. The kids get bored and want the next toy.
Yeah but what use would that be?
Which is the more practical baton used by Honey
This business model isn't charging my happiness at all...
>Yeah but what use would that be?
Dunno, maybe have some fun together with your daughter while teaching her how to play it?
I mean, what use would it be for the Japanese plastic toy industry?
This thing is too full of spoilers!
Any parent in Japan who has enough money to buy a guitar (or Precure toys) don't have time to either play with their child or learn any musical instrument themselves.
Gotta work hard so my child will have money to buy Precure toys for their child while they work hard too!
6 CURES CONFIRMED
I am mad at these videos for existing. Why do you spoil your own series with plastic?
Toys are the cancer killing Precure.
Maybe they'll finally give us a preexisting duo as a later addition.
You haven't been watching Precure for long, have you?
bet you said the same thing with Smile, and we all know how that turned out
>PRECURE PASSION DYNAMITE
You're greatly underestimating Toei.
>PRINCESS BAKUDAN BOMBER
>PRINCES DANGER MACHINE GUN
>not even the finishers attack
The armband is a lot cooler than the mirror. I love wrist-mounted items.
I wish the damn toys would shut up telling me what to do though. If you watch the damn show, you'll understand how to use the thing. Sentai toys aren't constantly telling you what to do, so why do these things?
Girls are dumb.
Do I hear "Lovely Punching Punch"? 3:10 ish.
That's not good. It means there will be tons of stock, tons of beamspam.
Tacticool cures when?
The mirror lights up from behind. The vests are dark colored to create a contrast with the light. If they were white or any light color it wouldn't look good with the transparencies and effects. Sasuga Bandai/Toei!
>>not even the finishers attack
So you're telling me these are going to be exactly like Sword's attack that didn't work whose name I can't remember?
It's Heartcatch all over again
esto flipa en colores
No, like Bossom Shower as opposed to Pink Forte Wave.
But the various SHOOTs worked pretty well throughout the series.
You say that like you aren't watching Precure for the beamspam.
Will HaCha finally free is from the tyranny of fisticuffs?
Sometimes you just have to smack your enemies head-on.
>watching Precure for the beamspam
Jesus Christ, have you only seen Doki and/or Smile?
I miss the physical combat...
Fuck you, why'd you have to remind me of that...
Physical combat is overrated.
Especially when looking back at scenes like >>101256007
>that Cherry Flamenco
I hope she fights a bull MoTW
It can't save a shitty season, that's true. But if the season is any better than Doki or Smile (not that hard) it will add much to the overall enjoyment.
If you're a little boy who is into shonenshit, sure.
I wonder how show-accurate these jingles are. Other toys don't always have the same music they use in the stock.
or this >>101272421
It only adds enjoyment if I like the characters, in my experience. And if I like the characters, give me more dialogue over combat of any sort.
Good characters > *
Look, I'm not even a fightfag, if you give me some drama instead I will be fine. Just don't give me stock beamspam because that's less interesting than shounenshit.
>I will casually imply that both Doki and Smile were shit and put them in the same boat at the same time
>No one will ever know
I'm not sure the main problem with beamspam in regards to beamspam vs fisticuffs is the beamspam itself. Isn't it rather that beamspam tends to be stock, and out of stock fighting is always more fun than stock?
literally the worst cure
Literally the worst taste.
FW is unrepresentative because it gets away with stuff other seasons don't have because of being the first.
>We'll never have such god-tier lacrosse episodes again.
Yes!5 has even screentime and maximum hetero. Neither really disqualify it, but it can skew expectations for the other seasons a bit. Not to mention that the Cures are unusually ruthless.
HC is disqualified purely for being VotW.
>Princess Dangan Machinegun
HIMALDA CONFIRMED FOR BEST CURE OF ALL TIME
THEY DON'T CALL HER WORLD WAR FOR NOTHING
Non-stock beamspam is the best.
I want to lick Hime's salty eyebrows
I'm already watching everything in the "spiral of madness" category.
I haven't watched Pretty Rhythm yet. What kind of little girl am I?
Fresh is probably the most representative of the series as a whole.
Not a ton of fisticuffs, but still some
Plenty of beams
Not often loved or hated, just generally liked
Standard team setup
Mix of humourous and serious episodes
> be a leg man
> this fuckign scene
Shitty Idol Show Propagandists please go.
One with sense. Try it, you might like it.
if you do, you have shit taste
The balance between close combat and beamspam in Fresh was perfect. Of course there's the problem with QUALITY, but that's another thing.
Nobody made that up, it was in the magazine interviews.
Well, if there's one lesson /a/ taught me is that the stuff I might not be into might just be that one thing I love the most and might end up taking it as my personal favorite. Another lesson is that the thing is question is also shit no matter what.
That's also an area where it represents the series well. There are more off-model shots than on, in Precure as a whole.
So was it the saying that Dokidoki's ED would be 2D.
RIP in pieces.
He was too pure for this world.
Dokidoki's EDs were so awesome they might as well have been 2D.
I will be disappointed if she doesn't pull out an actual machine gun, but ah well.
I wonder if she is supposed to be not-German or not-Italian. I hope it's the former.
He was the hero we deserved but not the one we needed right now.
Why is suite's second ED so much worse than it's first?
Except we have the pictures of the part that says 3DCG in the show.
It's okay, but the first one had fucking disco.
At least he redeemed himself before painfully dying disintegrated.
In that video, is she saying "Pururinrin, Precure!"
Couldn't hear clearly.
My favorite dancing ED is still Fresh's first ending.
I don't know they both look and sound amazing to me.
So Queen Mirage is not English? It all makes sense now!
Cure Princess burned on the stake when?
M-maybe they're exaggerating. Suite was said to have 3DCG stock footage and it was barely noticable.
Ska ED when?
> wonder if she is supposed to be not-German or not-Italian.
Himalda is supposedly an Italian name.
My body will not be ready.
It's not. If anything, it's vaguely German.
It's not. Not even Italian or Latin origin.
Italian or French, she gets her shit kicked in for being inadequate at combat but gets better when they get support.
I've always thought she looked Italian.
How does Himalda sound even remotely german?
Himelda is Hime and Imelda mixed together.
Possibly, but they alluded to their experiences in ED making
Imelda also German.
Himelda is a Spanish name.
I don't think anyone's body will be ready.
It would be glorious
Why is Reika such a bitch?
It's from Proto-Germanic *ermunaz (“all, whole”) + *hildiz (“battle”).
This should settle it.
You can't post that on a Christian imageboard!
I can on page 10 of a christian image board
So Himelda is Hitler's grandma? Sounds good enough to me!
>Himelda is German/Italian/Spanish
>Megimu is Japanese
The American, British, French, and Russian Cures are all bitches.
World War Cures! Fighting in WW2. On the right side.
No Doremi Mana, you stop.
Last post if for Hummy.
