What is Megumi's reaction to seeing fairy?
How long until Cure Honey?
>no Doki tomorrow
I'm glad I get to experience this a 2nd time.
Oh, it's not Regina.
Mirage is a cutie.
I think I know where this is going.
Those mook looking guys look like they are ready for SO MANY DANCE OFFS.
Woops, meant this.
>all those ???
Damn these guys look cool.
Reminds me of Salamander.
The last two look interesting.
>guy in military general fatigues with a saiark symbol on his hat like some kind of precure swastika
Fuck these are already the coolest villains.
I already hate that guy. He hasn't spoken a word and I know he's going to be the antithesis of cute.
Oh god I love big poofy hats so much this is perfect!
Guys... I think my happiness has charged beyond the max. If this goes on any longer I'm going to hurt myself.
The villains look like a lot of fun.
Is that a tomato on the pink one? An apple? Is Apple evil?
Hope he turns out to be Nazi Bunbee.
I wonder if this means single villain arcs.
That's it for now.
Does anyone have the link to the site where you can play around with the Cards?
Queen Mirage looks like a lost member of the Death Busters or Sailor Galaxia's group. Kind of a throwback design.
Thanks for the batch, Doremi.
>VA: Tetsuo Kanao
>He hates such things as affection, friendship and effort.
>He disrupts the work of people who are trying their best and he ridicule them as he destroys the very crystallization of their efforts.
>VA: Mariko Kouda
>The evil queen, who leads the evil organization known as the Phantom Empire.
>Choiark (Pun on "A little bad")
>Combatant. They move as ordered by their boss.
That is the scowl of a man dead tired of watching his minions dance til they drop.
Is this a thing? Did this happen?
The guy on the right will be the villain everyone is secretly cheering for.
Now that's what I call a general.
With the release of the villain designs: Yes. Extremely.
No one can say that Magical Girl vs. Nazi danceoffs doesn't sound like the greatest thing.
>>He disrupts the work of people who are trying their best and he ridicule them as he destroys the very crystallization of their efforts.
Victim of the week senses tingling
Is that girl going to be a Cure? She is, isn't she? The fairy will never be a Cure...
>Dapper as fuck notSalamander
>Some slutty looking pink thing
>Fucking Nazi general
>Badass grunts with FUCKING SUNGLASSES AND SCARVES HOLY SHIT
This season man
What am I supposed to click on?
It's from NS3, but not with Miyuki
>Princess tsundere as fuck
>childhood friend yellow
This gonna be a good year.
>Is that girl going to be a Cure?
It's been confirmed days ago.
Cards in the lower right start a transformation sequence.
These generals are going to be awesome
I remember when we first saw the designs. Back then I really wasn't feeling it, but just they really managed to get my happiness charged.
Imagine how /a/ is going tor react in the middle of each transformation.
>Kawarurun, Precure! Kururin Mirror Change!
Cure Princess is the princess, right?
What if the villains are from her kingdom, high members of society who are rebelling because [insert plot contrivance here] and are trying to take down Hime?
Lovely and Honey get dragged into Politics Precure?
>ARMPITS AND COLLARBONES
Even earlier than that, we saw her on the cards a while ago. How often do they take background characters and give them the full merch treatment.
We might have to figure out another name for them, now that we have an actual general among them.
TOO MANY SPOILERS
I CAN'T ACCEPT THIS
Honey and Fortune are close to the only things you can consider spoilers and they're on the show's front page.
>you will never be a precure
Fuck, I'm getting hyped, I don't want to get hyped, but god those villains look fantastic.
>the only point to these threads is to post pictures
As if Toei would be that awesome
Such lewd outfits. Casual clothes haven't been this lewd since Fresh.
I want to believe.
So, the monsters of the week will all look the same because the finisher will be 3dcg and will have them in it.
How do you feel about this?
Yeah, exactly like in HC because they also had mooks.
Well, if it's anything like the Akanbe from Smile, I've gotten used to it.
The whole show is 3DCG. Only the henshin is 2d.
The Precure after this, will probably have quite the hard time.
At best it would mean the generals will fight more often against the cures.
All the villains look cool as FUCK
This is the year Toei saved Precure
I cannot imagine the shitstorm, if Bel were to show up.
How would his reintroduction be like?
Just like the last two episodes of Doki. One would end in a surprise Bel plot twist, the next episode will have him get curbstomped in less than a minute into the episode.
Will have a hard time saving precure from 3dcg cancer you mean?
Maybe like Bumbee in Gogo.
They'll find him curled up at the foot of a giant Mana monument.
Bel mouse is the Queen Mirage pet, but when she used her magic in him, he becomes her loyal mentor
<= To Be Continued |\|
Someone was pretty close to being right.
HYPE TO THE MAX
Help /a/, I think I'm becoming the little girl, I feel like dancing around my room.
Bel mouse is the Queen Mirage pet, but when she used her magic in him, he becomes her >loyal mentor
And to hang out with fellow fans, no matter how (un)pleasant or (un)funny.
That's some top-tier prediction.
What are these guys? The taller ones without scarves are the minion mooks, so what're these ones with scarves?
They are Saiarks. Going by the manga, that's the regular big monster of the week.
Honoka figure came.
Took a few pictures.
That looks really nice. Congratulations!
What is it standing on? Do you have pinku bedsheets or something?
And the crappy little gasses.
Pillow case I had laying around. I'll have to take a better full picture later.
10 years ago, Precure was born
Well, now I know what to buy eventually.
A pink pillow case?
An essential item for any little girl.
That should be mandatory.
10 years ago, YOUR BEST MY BEST was born
It's weird that it's not a more popular fig. I know it's old, but there isn't even one user photo on MFC, or the entire internet outside one old JP Yahoo blog. It's really cute in person too.
Oh well, probably saved me a bunch of money on it.
Was that the dumbest decor in all of Smile?
Good ol' mid-2000s animation
What would you be doing if Precure didn't exist? If you'd never discovered it at least?
I think that was the Elephant.
Watching toku and the other "spiral of madness" shows like I'm doing already. It will feel emptier though.
Whatever I'd be doing, it wouldn't be as magical.
They still have the best poses.
You underestimate the power of self-esteem boosting.
ohhhh, mooks with scarves!
I've yet to fall into the spiral besides the tentative 'maybe I'll see what's on Aikatsu' for a couple minutes.
Keep going, you wont regret it.
I'm Jewelpet-deep into it. I don't even know what awaits me in the future.
Makes me want to ask the character designer, "Are you me???"
I want to see these guys go Megaman on the Precures.
Somehow I skipped most of the spiral of madness like Aikatsu and went straight from Precure to Jewelpet
Subs when for the first season and Sunshine?
Was worth a shot
Reminder that HaCha has cleavage.
I would be drooling over Hinagiku Katsura and Miku Hatsune more, and watching other anime in Precure's place.
Just the usual.
Sunshine is amazing. Literally one of the best show among the madness spiral that I ever saw. I'd dare put it in the same tier as my favorite precure series. That's how good it is. Learn Japanese and watch it.
LESS THAN A DAY LEFT, ARE YOU CHARGED?
You ever wonder what a magical girl show would be like if it had a boy character on the team?
I guess then it wouldn' be a magical GIRL show, would it?
Stop shouting, you'll wake the baby.
>You ever wonder what a magical girl show would be like if it had a boy character on the team?
Magical Kids? I'd watch it.
I don't have to wonder.
Well, there's Tuxedo Mask, but...It's not like he's an OFFICIAL member of the team, you know?
Someone hasn't watched Shugo Chara it seems.
I've never watched SM, do any male characters transform into magical boys?
Besides, he dies anyways.
You seriously don't know about Tuxedo fucking Mask?
I refuse to believe this is conicidence
Shugo Chara mother fucker
Also Cardcaptor Sakura technically
Well there's Erio from Nanoha Strikers.
>linking images on an imageboard
And we could make the girls be from many countries in one school. How about tech and magic combined, too, like a power suit that flies too. Oh, and if the boy is somehow the only boy that can use that power along with the other girls.
This reminds me, I read there was a manga with a boy who could transform into a magical girl. Completely forgot about it.
Are you talking about IS? Because no.
Not frilly enough.
That was Kampfer. That was shite.
>And we could make the girls be from many countries in one school.
the eyes ruin it
No, it wasn't.
I know Kampfer is shit, and I'm not talking about it.
All I remember was the more he transformed the more like a girl he became when not transformed.
best IS girl
And KoreanZombie, somewhat.
It might also have been Oto x Maho, which was less shite. Not that that's saying much.
I was just throwing ideas around. There's no way something like that could happen.
Your taste is plebeian, unless you are basing yourself on aesthetics only.
fuck you, Kampher was great
Same VA. Same in-universe age.
The fuck am I saying, that wasn't magical girl.
Happiness Charge: Regina Returns a.k.a. DokiDoki: Electric Bugaloo.
She looks more like a queen's servant/henchman than a queen.
Lazy Toei jews.
5th Cure material
no toei no
What if when she goes all out she gets an older form. Maybe one that's really busty like young Majorina.
In terms of the number of Cures in any given show, which is better, more or less?
3-4 is optimum.
Ever wonder how hectic it would be to have 7? One for every color of the rainbow.
3+1 or 2+2.
Less is more, I like to see them develop characters and and have lives outside of being a Precure which doesn't happen as much with large casts.
I found it, LN not manga, also not as magical as I remember.
There is an anime planned.
>vividbutts, Symphogeah, and Twintails
We need more
I was going to post that, but yeah. It's an LN not a manga. I'm kind of excited for the anime.
Well Hime's a Princess
francefags are the worst fags
not the same guy
Jesus, she even has a g̶l̶a̶v̶i̶e̶ staff! Thanks Mana.
I don't think you can pick a single one.
>We will never have a Cure that gratuitously spouts broken English.
3+1, or the HC/HapCha way of 2+1+1
Toei's shown they can't really handle just two that well and when you get to 5, someone gets notably shafted every time (instead of just kinda shafted).
>two shades of blue
Now that's just silly.
No, Kampfer was shit.
I loved the hell out of it and would watch it again and love it but it was still shit.
Grey and Silver, big difference. Actually three shades of blue, but he's not in that picture.
I wish could goback o those days.
Grey and Silver
Blue and Navy
I want to stroke not-Regina's bare armpits.
so, speaking of young majorina...
If she was actually a fairy all along, why the heck did she have a "younger" sexy form?
It's her outfit that doesn't convey "queen" in any way.
Oh shit. Never thought about that.
It's magic I don't have to explain shit.
Neither did the writers.
the witch from Snow White took on an old form when approaching Show White, which is Majorina's basis
her younger form should have been her true form
Because fuck you, I'm a witch.
How does all of the stuff they drop end up on earth?
Are the villain mooks from Kamina city or something?
her more comical "little old hag" better fits with her concept as a bumbling schemer/inventor, now that I think about it
They're sunakies with sweet glasses.
Because she's the evil queen in snow white. Don't tell me you have no childhood?
I wonder if the HaCha will kill a couple and wear their broken skins as disguises.
I think they're more reminiscent of Mouser from Super Mario Bros. 2, or they are also inspired by Kamina, or whatever inspired Mouser/Kamina/BelRodent's appearance.
I really, REALLY have to watch all of HC again.
Just so happiness overcharge don't reach cause an maelstrom when the livestream starts, let's envision what could go wrong.
Too much pink/blue/yellow/purple/green/black/white pandering
Cures from other countries never meet with the main cures and/or all other countries are 100% irrelevant. (Personally, I'd be fine if at least one was false)
Horrid stock CG and/or non-stock CG is abused
The Honey candidate childhood friend is a massive ruse. Ribbon sacrifices her soul so she can inhabit her body and become a Cure.
Fortune isn't a battle miko, but an ordinary
miko. She prays her enemies into oblivion without throwing a single punch or any other physical sign of aggression.
Toei doesn't abuse ethnic stereotypes/They are somehow annoying rather than amusing.
There is only one general for most of the season. The other generals are all busy attacking different countries and are killed off screen.
Princess doesn't get a machine gun or speak any Hawaiian whatsoever.
No fighting, not even dance fighting. Just dance offs.
Dance forms are discarded soon after the midseason climax and are replaced with generic white dresses.
Both of the endings are shit.
They drop the legacy Cure segments after they run out of Cures.
There is no funny /y/ pandering whatsoever, only hetero angst.
Blue appears very rarely, and does jack shit when he does appear.
HaCha is retooled for whatever reason for the worse. Timeskip and everything.
Or to make it more ridiculous, they blend in with the shades, boots, and gloves alone.
Alternatively, I'm a faggot.
And that episode where they steal Marine's tact after a training montage
>Dance forms are discarded soon after the midseason climax and are replaced with generic white dresses.
This feels like it has a real chance of happening.
>Princess doesn't get a machine gun or speak any Hawaiian whatsoever.
You need to stop thinking for a minute.
Instead of "no sexualizing precures" or "sexualize all the precures", let's come up with two lists. One of precures that can be sexualized, and one with the pure ones.
Rin (not that anyone would bother sexualizing her)
Will we ever see another cure transforming just for fun?
Please buy this action figure and make Honoka pose with it.
Can't we just say that you can only sexualize yellows and leave it at that?
Oh god, that would be amazing.
I'm laughing, you asshole.
Yayoi is a yellow and you really shouldn't sexualise her.
Not that that's stopped anyone.
Bait harder, nerd.
Do not sexualize the precures.
Swap Tsubomi and Aguri, and I'll be satisfied.
Oh wow, 0/10 you didn't even make me feel uncomfortable.
You, I like you.
Suite seems kinda... meandering
It's like, yeah, we got the notes, we got the trio, but it feels like it just takes so long to get to what it's trying to do.
Out of what seasons I've seen so far, I reckon Suite is the weakest.
The ending in particular is just asspull after asspull.
It starts going faster after 35. But yeah, until then, it feels like it's stalling.
Yeah, it sort of stalls. Normally I'd say it's post mid-season syndrome, but it doesn't feel like that's all there is to it.
It's gonna get itself together around episode 35.
Suite's ending is the best in the franchise together with SS.
They take their time instead of rushing it in one episode like they normally do.
>asspull after asspull
Okay, I'll give you the Trio the Minor and probably even the Flying Cathedral, but the rest didn't seem like an asspull to me.
Is Rhythm a yellow? Her outfit isn't yellow...
She's a blue.
She's obviously a Blue
But her outfit isn't blue.
I don't know much about Precure.
She's a white.
She's a yellow.
✓actually yellow color scheme
Save it before I delete it.
Usually Blues and Whites are kept under the same category, to the point Whites can be considered a Blue.
Whites count as blues.
It bet you don't even realize that Cure Bright is a pink.
No, I know she's a canon yellow because I saw that Toei picture that was posted yesterday. Can't trick this newfag I got the street smarts.
i want to lick not-nagisa's salty eyebrows
All characters must pander to their audience, moron.
And in Toei's case, perhaps a little more than just the main target audience...
Every Cure is "pandering".
She's a canon blue.
That's not Regina or Yayoi.
You are a FAGGOT.
Toei is retarded. Saki was Cure Bloom for the whole season, way before she got her Cure Bright, and she was the first wholly Pink cure. I don't even know why that magazine page even exists. Of course, you can call it color duality if you want, but she's still Pink to us.
Nigga if you had real street smarts you'd know not even Toei know what color each cure is.
>I saw that Toei picture that was posted yesterday.
>>101299345 was posted recently, too.
Read the caption
>Blue & White Precure
Whites are the most beautiful.
>I know better than the creators
Sounds like /u/ logic to me.
Mana pls go.
Not what's written in Japanese, that's what counts. It's blue.
But anyways, how would you try to classify them with the colors they wear? Even Toei is stumped about it too.
The Japanese says they combine blue and whites together, not that whites ARE blue.
There just aren't enough whites to give them their own category, but too many that they can't be ignored like orange.
So why isn't Beat a blue?
Because she has purple hair.
Edgy cures are purple.
So does Berry, and Egret.
>No, I know she's a canon yellow
Smile can be really good when it wants to.
When it comes to two-Cure teams even if it only starts out as one, the first one is always the pink and the second is a blue, no exceptions
But they clearly say that "Blue is the color of the partner you yearn for". They could have said "Blue and white are etc." but they didn't.
So it's blue.
She's also canon yellow.
Pinks: Nagisa, Saki, Nozomi, Love, Erika, Miyuki, Mana
Pirates: Hibiki, Alice
Red/Orange: Rin, Setsuna, Itsuki, Akane, Nao, Aguri
Yellow: Hikari, Urara, Kanade, Yayoi
Blue/White: Honoka, Mai, Karen, Tsubomi, Reika, Rikka
Purple: Yuri, Milk, Makopi, Michiru, Kaoru
Smile can be really good when it wants to. Thing is, it doesn't want to be most of the time. It's happy to be simple and fun.
Don't do this too me man.
You've got my brain firing on all cylinders trying to figure this shit out.
Oh and btw, Kanade is also canon pink/white. Not pink and/or white, pink/white as you can see in pic related.
Not sure I'm quite happy with Tsubomi being blue. She's to silly for that. She's clearly orange.
>that entire episode
>yellow is the sparkling idol color.
Gee Kanade, how comes Toei lets you have three colors?
Ellen is a purple
I want to make Princess Peace my own princess, if you know what I mean.
She's a Blurple
She used her yellow powers to convince Toei devs to give her more colors
She's canon blue and also canon not blue, as can be clearly seen in the images posted thus far.
Why would I bother sexualizing Precure when Toei does it for me?
That's not Miyuki's mom.
>But they clearly say that
Read the rest of it, stupid. Not just the flavor blurb at the top of the page.
When it wants to be good, Smile is fucking amazing
She's the sexy one. Yayoi's mom is the cute one.
Well I'm sold.
Ellen is a cat
Okay you may have a point.
That's fine too
What if cure fortune is a double agent?
Like, she's one of the generals, and is actively working against the rest?
that could be cool
depends on its execution
it will suck
That might be fun. She hangs out with the cures and tries to sabotage their work. Eventually turned of course. I don't think it'll happen though.
There are not enough images of Yayoi making use of her Beauty.
That would be pretty different
Either she's working with the cures against the villains, or she's one of the villains working against the cures from within
Either way, we win
>She will never sing in-show
cross your fingers, but not too hard
I wonder if Yayoi enjoys GAIM.
she's probably a fan of them all
So, what happened with this?
'twas a mighty deception that you fell prey to!
I'm sure she dreams about Baron every night in bed.
Hoo boy. Good morning Precure thread. I had a dream of my school class from years ago dancing and singing Eien no Tomodachi together. Eien no Tomodachi doesn't even have a dance!
I'm that charged.
Dat official art.
19 hours left!
You gonna be up for it?
I just downloaded the first season because these threads make the series look interesting. There's a lot of fucking content here; lots of episodes per season and lots of seasons. Anything I should skip or is it all pretty good?
Circle the girl that is most appealing in this image
Start with Heartcatch
If you don't like that, don't even bother with the rest
Going in order should be just fine. Just skip to the next one if you don't like what the current season is doing. That goes for sequels. If you are bored at any point during Max Heart, just move on. It never gets better. If you're not, great. Other than that, it's really all down to preference.
>here's a lot of fucking content here; lots of episodes per season and lots of seasons
It's a ten years old and counting anime franchise to promote toys to little girls. It's quite a given, really.
>Anything I should skip or is it all pretty good?
Rather good, really. Not bad to introduce you to the franchise. Also, every season is quite different, so don't be surprised if you don't see certain elements in the rest.
Only the Y5s with canon boyfriends are to be sexualized.
Being a Precure past middle school is shameful!
>you'll never feel that hidamari poka poka ;_;
ZING ZING ZING AMAZING
It took me way too long to get this pic.
Top right girl from the first season looks pretty cool but from what I can tell that's all I'm going to get of her. Jesus that's a lot of characters. Guess that makes sense given the age of the franchise as someone else pointed out. Makes it seem a little daunting to get into now though.
Thanks for the tips. I generally like mahou shoujo but I haven't really watched one since Sakura (not counting Madoka). I'll just start from the beginning then and keep in mind that I can skip anything that seems boring without risking much in the way of understanding.
Can't wait for Ponkichi's ZING ZING AMAZING and shiawase no VIBRATION.
I'm okay with that.
Why do they have to ruin the songs?
You guys realize that dancing is inherently erotic in its very nature and that every single season Toei has sexualized their cures, right?
Cute not lewd.
T-there's nothing erotic in this!
Shut up non-virgin
We try to hold ourselves to a higher standard.
Is this also will become aspect of the 3rd era? Aside ikemen and disguising, we also get gaijin cure in each series?
Oh, a clear list of early attacks.
Precure Pinky Love Shoot
Precure Blue Happy Shoot
(CF) Precure! Passion Dynamite! Ole`!
(LH) Precure! Pop'n'Sonic Attack!
(MH) Precure! Hawaiian Alo-Hello-E
(CB) Precure! Arabesque Shower
Precure Twin Miracle Happy Shoot! ("Delivery of Happiness Straight to You!')
And personal non-finishers?
Lovely Punching Punch
Lovely Rising Sword
Princess Explosion Bomber
Princess Shooting Machinegun
Okay, I'm lost on that Alohaloe. It's "Aloha Oe", which is hawaiian for "Goodbye", but Japanese also dropped a "Hello" in there making it "Hello and Goodbye to you"
Himelda is dangerous.
18 hours 52 minutes 12 seconds
Is it too early for Kono Ato Sugu?
Even though I hate Mana, I'll miss her for how mad she used to make me and the shitstorms she'd cause.
R.I.P Mana Sue. Unless you hog screentime and get worshipped in the crossover movie too.
>Lovely Punching Punch
10 years of cuteness.
10 years of fights.
10 years of whining about screentime.
10 years of Kawano.
10 years of kigs.
>(MH) Precure! Hawaiian Alo-Hello-E
Seriously, what the hell? Sounds hilarious when she says it too.
My mind is full of fuck.
>10 years of whining about screentime.
I doubt ikemen is st
>Shooting Machine Gun
I swear, if Lovely doesn't get a sword and Princess a machine gun, blood will be spilled. Princess only getting bombs is acceptable, I guess.
Nozomi is canonically the most likely to become a teen mom
>All those attack
>There aren't even Honey's and Fortune's in there
>Nor final group attacks
Do we even get 5 minute of non-stock footage?
I want to lick loli Miyuki's feet.
Her croissants don't seem ripe yet so I will wait for those.
Non-finishers might be non-stock. HC's non finishers were at least. I think.
>Lovely Punching Punch
>Lovely Rising Sword
>Princess Explosion Bomber
>Princess Shooting Machinegun
I'd be okay with Nozomi becoming a teen mom if I was her dad, as long as the kid was mine.
Oh god you guys have to stop it. At this rate I'm getting so hype that I'm going to be disappointed when I actually watch it. I'm going to have to spend my night thinking of all the ways this could go wrong so I don't disappoint myself because of overcharged happiness.
I'm pretty sure most of those are non-finishers like in HC. It had a lot of those
In HC the cures just seemed to come up with attacks as they went along.
My happiness is deflating because I nearly 100% sure that there won't be actual swords and machine guns involved.
If Toei decided to say fuck you to parents as a gamble to get higher ratings, I will be impressed.
Toei needs to start targeting dads. Moms have proven to fuzzy and unreliable, and thus they must be abandoned.
Looks like this is the case too.
Lovely Punch was in one of those manga and that was just a regular super punch
>Princess is the weakest Precure they said
>Uses bombs and machine guns instead of beamspam
Personally I'm disappointed there's never any dynamite.
Yes, exactly. Girly girls are long gone! All hail violent tomboys and feminists!
I'm curious as to what Rising Sword looks like. I mean, I know it won't actually a sword but still
>Toei needs to start targeting dads
Dads in Japan don't stay at home to watch children's shows. Moms do though
I wouldn't mind a Lovely Butt Punch.
If hacha turns out to be not world war precure, we should burn up toei's headquarters.
Megumi can Lovely Butt Punch my dick.
You don't need magic to use those. She's stealing Emiya's techniques.
It would be great. Sure, it might trigger an actual WWIII next generation, but it'll all be worth it.
The problem with Japan's population right now are mostly that moms don't, and that women don't want to become moms because of the pressure to do so.
>MFW she will have character development from coward cure to cure who enjoy battle and grinning while punching enemies.
>yfw Princess Shooting Machinegun is just Hime picking up a normal gun and firing it
We Homu now.
Hime is going to have the best character arc. Going from runaway coward to defender of Earth
It'll be similar to Tsubomi's except she already has basic social skills and can put up a front and will be more like accepting her role as future queen.
Also, I know they probably won't do this but I would love to see Hime running away from the kingdom as a frequent thing that pops up in her head as kind of a failure thing that she overcomes
B-but little girls should not be using bombs and machineguns.
I guess little girls were tougher back then.
Honoka made robbers with guns surrender.
And she do that in her civilian form.
Damn it all. I know my expectations are completely unrealistic, but fuck it. I'm ready for disappointment.
>mfw Toei really makes an age appropriate version of this on an MOTW
But they weren't bad guys, they were just businessmen with bad luck.
>Princess Explosion Bomber is actually hime summon blue sky's kingdom most advanced airplane fighter and bombing shit with it.
Why the fuck are you expecting this kind of over-the-top thing in a kid's show?
>Moshimoshi? Hime desu. Akutibeeto it.
I just found out that her VA not only voiced Miyuki's mother but also pic related.
Kid's shows are exactly the place where you expect crazy shit.
Watching the Y5 movie, adoring the het.
Also, who would enjoy going to a princess theme park?
>Also, who would enjoy going to a princess theme park?
It's a good thing Urobuchi isn't writing HaCha.
I love this gif. It shows that not even Nozomi likes Rin.
>Lovely Punching Punch
>Lovely Rising Sword
>Princess Explosion Bomber
>Princess Shooting Machinegun
So Lovely is single target attack for boss, Princess is AOE attacks for mobs.
>you will never get to be a princess for a day
Or is he? The leaks are a lie! Urobuchi is taking over Toei!
I hope hime can call forth her kingdom's armies.
Certainly not only the enemies can have mooks in the battle aren't they?
She isn't actually a cat. It was all her collar forcing her into cat form.
Wonder who put that collar on her as a baby since she thought she always had been a cat.
Bunbee what are you doing there you aren't a Cure.
He is really near it though.
SO THAT'S WHO THE LAST GENERAL IS! Toei confirmed for bros!
The Futari Was are looking good there.
People are liking GAIM. I wouldn't be surprised to see Urobuchi work on precure at some point. Though I wouldn't expect anything darker than Gargantia, which was pretty tame most of the time. If they did put him on precure, I'd hope they're smart enough to set ground rules.
Then what does that make Hummy?
>FW Black and White
10/10. You did good, Toei.
Less than a minute of screentime and I already like Dark Dream.
Holy shit I gotta have that Bunbee!
>ORE NO TAAN
Hummy is a natural fairy cat. There seems to be tons of those are Major Land. Seiren was probably tricked by Noise into thinking she was a cat.
Urobuchi knows that working on a kid's show means limits. I doubt anything he would do anything that much darker than what we got already.
Gaim toys are selling well? I know that the ratings are worse than Wizard.
I actually don't know how well GAIM is doing other than what I've seen in these threads. Maybe someone has a chart or something?
What was Doki's final rating average?
Something between bad and shit.
Am I the only one who thinks that the mooks this season look like Sniper Joes?
At the very least, you could say some thing less boring like "This is all Cure Heart's fault!"
Shitposting needs soul!
>Gaim toys are selling well?
The toys are selling out everywhere and going for insane prices on the aftermarket. It's nuts.
>Karen holding Milk
Just noticed that.
Can they get any more gay?
And Sniper Joes look like the common Casshern robots.
Everyone has copied everything but Precure is notorious for copying casshern
You did good Toei. You did good.
Holy shit Bunbee what?
Rosetta what are you doing
What's with that hand position
What do you mean strong and stiff
That's good news. Nice to see kids warming up to the seemingly silly theme.
But also fruits
You know what's good about this in a way is that between Smile and Doki, people really can't make that much fun of SS being Precure's least popular thing
I didn't think I'd like it either. I guess Bandai knows how to make shit work.
SS's sales are much much worse than Doki's. If ratings were the only issue, then SS would be more popular than Suite.
Doki outsold SS not even counting the entire last quarter of sales. Smile too. SS is still by far the least popular series.
>This is the ultimate attack of cure princess!!!
>No Shiny Luminous
>Or Miyuki (seriously what? She's a pink)
But Bunbee's there at least!
To me SS's unpopularity and Max Heart's popularity shows that there is absolutely no correlation between what little girls like and actual quality.
You're just realizing that now?
>Am I the only one
But seriously, I'm getting those vibes too.
Japan having shit taste is a known fact in /a/. It's because ultimately, their tastes are more mainstream than ours.
>shitty FW rehash
Outside of /pc/, most people don't even remember SS.
Nope. I just never brought it up during Doki or Smile because the ratingsfags love to circlejerk over how unpopular the shows they dislike are even though they're still about 5 times as popular as they average anime. Talking to them about "facts" such as the fact that no one watches TV any more or that the bottom line of income is more important than how that income is made gets in the way of their delusions that later seasons have been killing precure, so I just kept quiet.
That's out the window after Michiru and Kaoru show up
THIS IS IT
THIS IS THE SEASON WE GET SIX CURES
Most people don't even try Splash Star.
Because they're retards who literally think it's similar to Futari wa because hurr designs.
dear god no
WHAT IF THERE ARE MORE!
You know that there technically will be because of international Cures, right?
Gogo doesn't count?
Six cures + 1 fairy cure
Milky Rose is not a Cure. It's still Precure 5, not Precure 6.
A lot of people don't think Milk counts for reasons. They never state those reasons.
But can you really blame them?
In show, she's technically not. It's like with Shiny Luminous.
Yes. That's a dumb reason to not watch something.
Urobuchi is insanely close to Toei right now. Not just with Gaim, but with that upcoming 3DCG movie Expelled from Paradise movie he is making with them.
If things play out, he may end up becoming a Toei writer on call like Kobayashi or Yonemura or Riku Sanjo, pic related (even wrote some episodes of Fourze). Seriously, I'm pretty sure this guy is going to write a Precure season after he finishes Kyoryuger
I have a feeling that ratingsfags will be annoying in HaCha as well, except maybe for the opposite reason.
Actually yeah, yeah I can. It's a stupid reason and I'd think people in these threads at the least would know better
Didn't that guy do MD Geist
Yes. Yes he did. He also did the Dragon Quest and Beet the Vandal Buster manga
Guy has kind of a weird resume
I don't blame them for disliking Splash Star's cure designs.
I DO blame them if they parrot the retarded sentiment of Splash Star being a poorly conceived ripoff of Futari Wa. It's just not true. The characters act completely differently from the characters of FW. The combat has a different style. The villains are different, the story is different, there's an actual redemption arc. On a very shallow level, it looks similar. (Sporty lead cure who is kind of tomboyish working with a more elegant and smarter girl, in a duo). That's about it. The similarities end there.
>Urobuchi working for Toei
I'd bet he gets a few episodes before he gets a season. I'd doubt he would get, or even want a season. But a single episode where it gets ALMOST really dark, and then gets fixed in some way could work really well.
You can hipster about Madoka all you want but as a writer his technical level is way above half the clueless hacks that usually work there.
MD Precure would be fun, but I'm sure those days are long behind him.
Awaiting Precure W, Precure Wars, Dinosaur Cure, or Cure Queen the Great
>Urobuchi decides to write the next Digimon season
I'd be be extremely aroused and nervous at the same time
Sorry to tell you this, people watch precure for the girls, not the story. When the girls look like the exact copy of the last season, it's not a good impression to begin with.
I would be amused to see another season as dark as Tamers.
I could almost feel that cockblock.
Can't stop, she's just a Precure
We're not talking about Japanese children here, they can just take their shit taste and swallow it, I'm talking about around here where people should know better
I like Gaim and all, I'd just be surprised to see him become a Toei guy on call
Get a load of this guy
And what I'm saying is that's a shallow reason to dislike a season.
If it's your reason, go ahead and have it. Just admit it's shallow, while us who have actually watched it see how much it has improved from Futari Wa's mistakes and that it's simply a better season in all regards except that singular issue of the character designs.
Also I watch it mostly for the girls too, and Saki civ form is one of the loveliest girls in the franchise.
Mai is better.
Mai I would actually agree is a little too close to Honoka in appearance. Saki on the other hand looks way different (see: better) than Nagisa.
I want to lick not-Nagisa's salty eyebrows
You had one job, Bucky.
You just missed your chance, bud. Now it's gone. You can't lick her eyebrows any more.
Hibiki, Rikka, Rosetta, Tsubomi, Erika and Kanade are better.
What is this?
can't beat Legina
You monster, what have you done?
Look like ~$4 buttons.
Where can I get them? I want bumbee
I could agree with those, and I'd put Alice, Reika, Regina, and quite a few other lovelies at the top too. Except Kanade. She's bad.
My point is just that Saki is pretty damn underrated because of what I admit is a terrible cure form. Also, it's way more personality in her case, than looks.
Science. I was paid well to do it.
Exact change only, please.
>it's way more personality in her case, than looks
Well, I have to respect that, maybe you're not that much of a faggot. But still a faglord.
~$4.10 + tax, I suppose.
Then whatever overseas method of your choice.
Ha Ha, time for more Yes!5
Nuts is an ass. Stories don't need to be DEEP to be enjoyable.
>Except Kanade. She's bad.
Fucking kill yourself.
He meant in civie form. She is one of the most gorgeous in her Cure form.
As shallow as it is, would you drive a lamborghini that looks like a dumpster truck? It may as well be much better than any current car - outside of its one flaw, but would people buy it?
Same with precure. The reason to watch it is shallow to begin with. It's not rocket science after all.
Honestly I kind of like her at times, but I feel like she owns way more of the blame in every instance of her catfights with Hibiki early on, in almost all instances. She didn't grow on me as much as other cures.
I also don't like her color scheme very much.
And actually I prefer Kanade's civie form specifically.
>Stories don't need to be DEEP to be enjoyable.
That's basically what he is saying.
But he's right. If it's confusing as fuck without any kind of deductible value or meaning then what's the point?
But at first I think he meant the opposite. That sentence could have been worded better.
Or he needs to work on his Japanese and reading skills.
>As shallow as it is, would you drive a lamborghini that looks like a dumpster truck?
The great things about analogies is that you can't spend them without saying where they came from
I think this is the first time I've actually seen Despariah.
Oh, as I read it it sounded like "There's no meaning to the story so it's pointless". Maybe because I just paused on that moment to screenshot it I didn't get it.
What disgusting art.
No, I'm pretty sure those aren't the same at all considering one is a car and the other is ignoring an entire 50 episode show because of retarded visual biases and ignoring everything else
Bunbee is pretty great.
First of all, let's be honest. It's a Lamborghini that looks like a Porsche at worst. The criticism is rarely that it looks bad, but that it looks similar but isn't the same thing.
Distance yourself from that and you still have a pretty fucking nice Porsche. Sometimes it transforms into a kind of ugly TOG II or something, but that's no big deal really.
But second of all, there are different shallow reasons to like precure. Some of those reasons include enjoying the characters for their personalities on a shallow level. Slightly less shallow than looks, but still shallow.
And thirdly, and finally, we don't just watch the shows as they air on TV. We also watch past seasons. We have the time, knowledge, and resources to give all the shows a full chance, and shallow visual problems put up way less of a barrier for us than for a little girl who knows nothing about computers and thinks she has to wait for the precure she wants to watch to air as reruns (probably never happens for SS). So even if our reasons for watching are shallow, we can get something more out of the seasons, and Splash Star has so much more to offer for people who are willing to overcome the initial problems.
What are you doing Komachi you can't drive a motorbike
>that script clench
Looks like I will like these guys already.
Carry on then.
That shade of green looks a lot better though. Mint's green looks very washed-out.
There simply isn't enough porn of Madoka
Oh, so far, I kinda like the storybook feel of Yes 5's bgs.
I like them, but they don't fit.
Ooh, that's a good way to put it. It's very different to the other seasons.
If people can ignore a car because of its looks, then people can ignore an entire 50 episode show because of retarded visual biases.
You get the car to show off your wealth, and you watch precure for the cute girls. If it fails at that to begin with, the rest is rather unimportant.
Looks like you aren't following either. I say that imagine if I gave you a dumpster truck that's actually the best sport car inside, would you believe it would sell?
Also, read back on the replies please before replying. I was talking about why SS isn't popular, not why you should not watch SS. When the staff fails at what's most important, it's not just "a perfect series with only one mistake" and then blame people not watching it for being shallow. You may have the time to go through 500 episodes, but most people don't.
>You may have the time to go through 500 episodes, but most people don't.
That's an odd statement considering Splash Star dropped off some months after it started, not right away. So people DID come to watch it.
And then were disappointed that it was the same thing all over again?
I want everyone's opinions to match my opinions.
Can I be a Precure villain?
I could stay paused on this frame for a while.
>16 Hours, 30 Minutes, 33 Seconds
Which civilian-form Cures do not smell bad?
Akane after a good game of volleyball and baking some okonomiyaki
That's how it started but certainly not how it ended up turning into
Fuck, it's already Saturday. It's really going to happen later.
I just looked back, the discussion got derailed at this point:
>But can you really blame them?
>I don't blame them for disliking Splash Star's cure designs.
>I DO blame them if they parrot the retarded sentiment of Splash Star being a poorly conceived ripoff of Futari Wa. It's just not true. The characters act completely differently from the characters of FW. The combat has a different style. The villains are different, the story is different, there's an actual redemption arc. On a very shallow level, it looks similar. (Sporty lead cure who is kind of tomboyish working with a more elegant and smarter girl, in a duo). That's about it. The similarities end there.
At this point, I stopped talking about Japanese little girls and their giving their show its one chance that they're going to give them. I shifted my focus to the people who should know better, and yet don't. People who talk about Splash Star as if it is actually a clone of Futari wa. When they do that, they expose themselves as not really having watched the show. Which is fine, again, because watching cartoons isn't a job for most people and they don't have any reason to watch something that doesn't appeal to them. But they also don't have to talk about how lame their least favorite precure season is for (reason that is only superficially true, and becomes less true the more you watch the series)
I don't care at all whether it sells or not, beyond the possibility of a bad year actually killing precure (and even so I'd find something else). Two of my favorite anime literally sold about 400 dvds to all of Japan, and those are shows that rely on DVD/BD sales unlike precure. I agree that the staff failed to market well. Just as a car manufacturer would fail if they made the car you describe. That is a flaw. But people who actually drive that car shouldn't tell people that it drives like a dump truck when it just clearly doesn't.
What if it actually doesn't. I wonder what /pc/'s reaction would be if the airing got delayed by a week because kawano spilled ink all over the fight scene.
But anon, fight scenes are 3DCG
CG ink. Kawano finds a way.
I feel like this is a boring episode. At least Girinma is in it so the fight should be good.
And thus Rin's suffering continues
Okay so last week cc's Justin stream was booting off some people with bandwidth exceed error and this week there's maybe going to be even more viewers; thereby I bought pro so you don't have to. I will set up a restream at twitch dot tv slash misterfrumix which shouldn't get blocked off unless twitch mods catch us.
After the broadcasting I might sub the episode live or something, so get charged.
How would that even work
I love page 10.
But what about the SHT thread stream?
>As for me
TokuNMecha? It's just embedding Justin's stream so it will knock you off regardless.
Or fengyunzibo? It's great if it works for you, but for some people it doesn't.
If you're going to cherrypick translations for natural yet grammatically incorrect things, at least mention the honorific that's right there.
>M to anyone
This picture is unrealistic
Poor lizard, it's probably going to get eaten by this green haired monster
Splash Star is the Deep Space Nine of precure.
Hardcore fans of the franchise from the beginning sneeze at it.
People who watch it end up loving it the most.
It can be done, as for my master.
Yayoi go go!
Does the taser give Yayoi pleasure? I can't think of any other reason for it to be included.
The taser gives Yayoi's VA pleasure.
Forced peace signs make my dick super hard.
