Isn't there at least one Nana Mizuki song in the HC vocal album?
Nishishi sounds fucking retarded.
I can't believe people talks like that.
So much nice fanart of nishishi face.
I can't wait for more of Fortune and Honey, after we get to know them better.
inb4 one of them get shafted
They don't. It's anime-speak.
I want to pull on her hair tassels.
Any Tsubomi songs?
Or do you mean Nana using her normal voice? Nope.
What are the odds of an actual group transformation, /pc/?
>character song with the wrong voice
Even if it's water tree, do not want.
You mean like a transformation with everyone together instead of separated into squares? 50-50.
Well, we can be pessimistic and expect both Honey and Fortune getting shafted.
Let's not hope for a repeat of Dokidoki in that sense.
I'd like to say that I'd be completely okay with both of them getting shafted in favor of glorious Megumi and Hime, but that's the first episode high talking.
I miss Yasuharu Takanashi.
Actual group transformation?
Group transformation consists of Lovely+Hime having a true duo transformation with cut-ins from Honey and Fortune's transformation scenes.
That's in singular you nigger.
>hating on Hitoshi Sakimoto level glorious orchestra
Not on my watch
You can't hide from us.
I think some insensitive janitor deleted the post.
Well that didn't sound as intended so let me try it again
That's talk not talks nigger.
What a nigger that janitor is.
Whaaaat. Princess's henshin is so good, hopefully they'll make Lovely's just as lovely and then blow them both out of the water with typical yellow fuck you got mine.
Doki in a nutshell.
Wall scrolls cost more in shipping than I thought
But we already saw Lovely's sequence
The only time I didn't see that shit eating grin on during the henshin Mana was during the final Leva/Gula battle, when they used the Lovely iPad for the first time.
>not like the ba ba ba ba daaaa happiness charge~
I refuse to believe something as clearly inferior as that is the final product.
Her hair looks like Erika's there.
>expecting a lowborn to match up to a princess
Anon, did you buy it just to burn it?
I really hope we get one of Hime a la Kanzaki Hiro.
extremely unliikely ;____;
Just in doubt, as someone who only watched the original Precure, are the fight scenes worth it?
No, not a janitor. Was suposed to point out his derp yet ended up saying something retarded as well.
Cure Princess the worst Blue Cure, ruined the whole Blue Cures are smart Cures image
depends on the season in question
If you are trying to decide on what to watch next based on that, go for Heartcatch.
Watch Heartcatch and possibly Splash Star and fuck off shonenfag.
As a whole, maybe not, but there's more than just fights here. Also ignore all instances of boasted fights outside of HC.
The ones with cute girls are. So all of them but Suite, really.
>fuck off shonenfag
There's no need for hostility.
IT WON'T LOSE TO SHONEN ANIME.
No, I bought it because blonde pinks are the best
Mana a lovely, Rikka a cool beauty, Alice a dignified lady and MakoP a smug.
>all but Suite
Best Cure sibling not from Splash Star?
Higher than the other naysayers responding to this are estimating.
Waiting for Hime to embarrass herself at school in her clumsy attempt to make friends, and be WAY more sheltered and naive than Makopi was.
Mana's beatdown did remind me of some DBZ episodes.
Hapiness Charge will be my first precure
From a rate of 1 to Ellen, how retarded will she be?
Yeah Cure Prince should fuck off from Blue and stick to Yellow since Yellow is the perfect color for useless Cures like Cure Princess
That's been dead since Fresh. Rikka and Reika are the only smart blues since Karen and Reika was only book smart.
Good. Now watch Heartcatch and Smile alongside it. The trio of fun.
I can't see Yuuyuu as a blue. At all.
I almost found your post cute, but then remembered that yellows are all sluts.
No. Fuck you. Go away.
I don't watch this show but I came in here to say that those eyebrows make me hard
Garden of Bitches
Old-style dot eyebrows are making a comeback.
Would you play horsey with Hime?
And boy does it make me happy
do you know megumi?
Yeah well, that's just like your opinion man.
Which Precure has the best plot?
Yeah, aino her.
I have less than 50 pics in my HaCha folder. It's not sorted. I am going to fix this today or die trying.
You shall not become the mess my other Precure folders are, hacha.
Kono kyua raburi ha muteki nandakara!!
How many times does a Lovely have to get hit for a Princess to get to the center of her cowardice?
She is deeply furious and annoyed with whatever you are doing.
But that's backstory anon.
Are her pupils bigger than normal? Super creepy.
Pretty cute, would play the cello for.
Why is this considered funny?
It's not. A lot of memes aren't, but being funny isn't why people do them.
Because Miya best girl.
YOLO should be on HIme's. cause she value's her life so much, you see?
It also has the worst execution of a plot.
Not HaCha. Not anymore.
You mean Plot or PLOT?
Watch Amagami and you'll understand
>Tsubomi taller than Setsuna, Nozomi and Miyuki
>Mana, who is smaller than Rikka, is taller than all the FWs, SS and except Reika
My bullshit senses are tingling
Fresh has the deepest plot.
>3 days until HaCha episode 2
I thought Urara was the shortest Yellow
Her right leg is in no way connected to her body.
Do we know the names of the other Hapcha generals yet?
>thigh is wider than entire frame
Hell yeah nigga.
Tsubomi's feet aren't even touching the ground. That's definitely wrong. Mana is believable, though. She's taller than Jun and though of as Prince-like by her classmates so her being a little tall makes sense.
Apparently legs are very difficult to draw.
Speedwagon, Stroheim, Nui, and Red. And Queen Ikuyo.
>So, anon? Any girls you've fallen in love with before now? I know there definitely aren't, but surely there are girls that have at least piqued your interest. It's fine if there are. I'm not trying to condemn you. I don't really like it, but I can at least tolerate it. That's stuff from before we met, anyway. Now that we've met, I know you'll ignore other girls so nothing will change between us. I kinda feel bad for the other girls since I have a monopoly on you, but oh well. That's just how love is. You have already picked me, so that's just the fate we've chosen. I'll have to be happy for the sake of all the other girls, too. But you can mingle just a bit with other girls without me getting angry. I'd feel sorry for them if I was the only one happy. Don't you think so too?
>Anyway, what kind of food do you like? You may be wondering why I'm asking something like that, but from tomorrow on I'm going to be making your bentos... that is to say, starting tomorrow everything that goes into your mouth will be made by me, so I want to know what you like. You shouldn't be picky, but I truly want you to enjoy your food. Lately I've been thinking of making a menu full of food you like. You don't have to thank me; it's natural for a girl to make her boyfriend's bentos, right? I just have one favor to ask you. I've always wanted to go "aaah" and be fed, so please do that tomorrow during lunch. But don't go running off in embarrassment! That would just hurt me too much. I wouldn't be able to recover. I might even kill you out of shock! ...Just kidding.
Anatomy is hard. You should do as the artists do and ignore it.
Ako is 9 years old, no Cure can be shorter.
That's silly. Aguri is 2. Hikari is 1.
Cure Fetus when?
A lot of them don't look properly lined up.
Tsubomi is hovering at least 10-15cm above the floor.
I don't even want to try and imagine it.
that feel when Moonraito is taller then me
Dokidoki is a very well-drawn anime.
Raburi puriti yay kawaii~♪
There's no shame in being a little girl. Though as a bigger friend, I'm over 20cm higher than Yuri.
I guess I have time to start making dinner.
Do you want me to cap the HC pose or otherwise put the last frame from it's transformation scene? Well do you?
This place is suicide, why are you here?
I want to fuck cure fetus
I'm glad we got a Blue whose powers are weaponry related and not just water/ice
Agreed, but water/ice are awesome.
For Toei, it is pretty good
It's funny because the dance forms have ice and wood elemental affinity.
What about knpk attacks?
>water/ice are awesome
Electric > Air > Ice > Fire > Water > Metal > Earth > Wood
Imagine how OP GANGAN MACHINE GUN is going to be when Hime can actually use it right
I love me some bangbangmachinegun, but I'm not into balls.
Wishful thinking. Nothing more.
ATASHI WA GUNDAM
>forgetting about guitar hair
Not wanting to see Princess toss her balls to Lovely and spike them into the enemy
Black magic is real
You're all going to be so pissed when the dance attack stock footage is ripped straight from the ED.
Crossover of this shot and pose with Lupin holding a pistol, the two of them back-to-back, when?
complete with any random scrolling text at the bottom
Damn right I will.
Did she steal Honey's frames?
It was over 50 seconds long.
i want to lick not-nagisa's salty eyebrows
That wouldn't make any sense
That would mean in-episode Loli Pop Hip Hop bottom. There would be much rejoicing.
I hope the proper way of using princess ball is shooting it out of her fingers like that.
I will cum buckets if they ever use Princess Ball like a sentai attack.
I should check the boorus more often. I was worried itomugi wouldn't draw the HaChas like this for some reason.
I hope it can be used to double-jump.
What does that mean?
So should I pick up Fresh? I want to watch it for the cute girls but I'm afraid this is like doremi.
How do you even make a gif that size and that quality?
I use Photoshop, and I can't chose having no dithering or w/e...
Perhaps this video will help you understand.
Who knows, maybe we'll get it for the finale. We did get Rosetta Balloon after all.
>but I'm afraid this is like doremi.
Why would you be afraid for something to be like Doremi?
Beat the first Amuletto Haato henshin by 10 seconds, I think?
I like mahou shoujo in general but I have a hate-passion towards Doremi, that's all.
Then you're in good company. Doremi gets us pretty fluttered these days!
Why would you hate the Ojamajos?
Doremi the show or Doremi the fansubber?
If you're referring to the show I can tell you have absolute shit taste. Doremi is fucking good.
>not keeping the Ojamajos at the center of your heart
I was a kid and I already hated them, I'm sorry.
Doremi in general. I'm sorry your opinion isn't the same as mine, I could also say your taste is shit but I'm not uneducated.
No you couldn't because Doremi is good and your taste is shit for not liking it.
I hope that attack gets used often.
I've only just noticed Aphrodite has legs there.
Whatever helps you sleep at night, pleb.
What kind of freaky anatomy is this
He's right though.
You've got objectively shit taste.
>hoping for beamspam
3rd era is pretty cool.
Classic Toei's sense of perspective
You won't hurt my feelings.
Princess ball, bullet machine gun, and stardust shoot are not beams
she looks like some monster from monmusu quest
Is it even technically beam spam? It's more like a long distance punch.
Of course there are:
Tsubomi -Future Flower-
OPEN THE WORLD
Compared to normal punching and kicking, they're close enough.
I'd call it pellet spamming, if anything.
Are you a pizzaboo, /pc/?
Speaking of songs, I hope we're gonna get a song like Heart Goes On played in a battle again.
That episode with MakoP doesn't count.
Being that much of a scaredy-cat must be crippling.
Believe in based Nagamine
>Tsubomi will never be real
Can't help it, nya
There is a difference between beamspam and ORAORAORAORA'ing the air.
The same as how there is a difference between shooting your finisher out your hands and PUNCHING YOUR FINISHER like Fortune
She will always live in your heart.
Go to /x/ and post this, they're gonna love it
But it helped him outlive anons who did not outlive Suite.
Fear is strength.
>There are anons who've died before HaCha aired.
So what is that costume supposed to be?
The clothes look civilian, but her hair means she's in Cure form.
Fuck off, dokidoki sucks.
>The light of life that ripens in the earth! Cure Honey!
Yeah it's lesbian propaganda
>I'll fight alongside Cure Lovely
No, go back to Fortune, Honey.
Are there doujins of Mana mindbreaking Regina?
I wonder if little girls understand what is happening here?
>not "Sugary sweet, a delicious treat. Cure Honey!"
There are doujins of Regina mind breaking Mana
Why would she go back to fortune if they haven't even met?
Yuko's VA is a noob VA... she is the one that's supposed to sing, right?
Why wouldn't they?
Yes. Just a guess, but she may be a debuting idol IRL
> Seeders: 5
This is gonna take a while...
You don't understand
GanGan Machine Gun now >>101575548
GanGan Machine Gun by the end of the show
Dropped, saged, called the cops.
Kill yourself shit taste faggot
Is she making some kind of reference or is she just retarded?
According to anons, she's making some kind of joke of some sort that doesn't translate into English well
When exactly did you fall under the impression that it's over?
I guess someone doesn't want to keep smiling.
It's Dangan Machine Gun.
HaCha's here to save Precure from DokiDoki with armpits, legs, and Kamen Rider-esque mooks.
Isn't it sign language? Why she would do that I have no clue.
She's just special.
Hime is a baka gaijin.
Well, now I can only see this as an advertisement for a roll on deodorant .
>When exactly did you fall under the impression that it's over?
When Toei just moves on from it like they do every season except the first one
Maybe there's some kind of joke I don't get, but I think it's only that it kind of rhymes this way.
Whether she's making a joke or not, she's probably slightly retarded as well.
>tfw Takatora's gonna have DJ Sagara killed when he finds out what he did
She's a pink, that comes with the territory.
She's a regular Billy Crystal.
Sure. You don't make that face without having at least a little bit o' brain problems.
No anon, Sagara and Statesman are playing everyone like a drum.
According to who? If it's I joke, I don't get it,
>implying Sagara isn't potential final boss material
The dude is way too chaotic neutral to just be off'd before causing more shit.
>implying Sagara hasn't already thought of that beforehand
Why do you think he gave the Lemon Energy Lockseed and slot away?
Unless it was part of their plan.
The joke is that Megumi rhymes with Ureshii. That's it.
Megumi is very silly
That's not how rhymes work, not here nor in Japan.
Maybe there is no rhyme or joke or anything and Megumi is just weird like that. And does sign language for no reason. I don't know.
How many people have fapped to this?
I'd buy it!
Because they're both girls.
I can fap to it right now if you want.
Not to that specific frame but I've fapped to Hime at least ten times now
I want to stick my fingers in her nose.
Didn't seem to be a reference from what I could pick up from watching it on Himado.
Power Rangers is suprisingly big in Japan.
Why doesn't Oda just kill himself? His daughters will never love him as much as Precure.
Is Aikatsu! S2 good yet?
Power rangers? Where is super sentai
It's the sales figure for Sentai, you doofus.
I want to make Megumi ureshii
Exactly what does this signify?
He should end OP and start on something new.
It's getting pretty tiresome.
Exchanged places with Sentai.
Hapicha will save Precure.
So big, they re-dubbed MMPR in Japanese.
think about that for a moment.
It's supposed to be Sentai. The translator is retarded
For satellite and late-night broadcast.
Wow, so big.
HaCha, HapCha, or HapiCha?
You're quite ignorant, aren't you.
Hapcha sounds better
>everything steady or rising
>one piece tanking
From the kindergarten song kimi ni aete ureshii
I named the folder Hapcha.
Next episode getting closer.
SPD was in Akibaranger too. Therefore, Power Rangers and Super Sentai are in the same universe. Which is also shared with Kamen Rider because crossovers. Which is also shared with Precure because Yoko Honna.
Therefore, we should add together the Power Rangers and Super Hero Time block sales. Take that, Aikatsu.
Sweet cherrypicking, batman
A couple of shit taste faggots who prefer a kike adaptation, you sure proved him wrong.
>Gosei defense force
I hate Japan.
So she's retarded.
Huge filesize is actually a tag?
HaCha. The others are inconsistent and sound dumb.
>hating based Goseiger
Why the capital 'C'? Happinesscharge is clearly just one word.
A western company would probably consider something like that to save face in front of investors over just canning a project. Not sure if it's the same over in the land of the rising sun.
With some different music this would be absolutely horrifying.
Finally someone with an answer.
That's so cute.
Because then you would just be calling it "H" Precure which has awkward connotations
>I-it's c-cherry picking! my glorious Japan must not know of our inferior counterparts!
I bet you think they're Xenophobic.
/pol/ please go. If it's a kike adaptation, why is every Red Ranger except RPM white?
If we're basing this on how it appears in the logo, it should obviously be HACHA.
It's spelled out as HappinessCharge, not Happinesscharge.
It's a kike adaption because Saban is literally jewish and the other colors suffer their multiculturalism propaganda.
Similar lyrics in GoGo OP and HaCha ED
That's probably from the same thread too.
350 posts in 2 months? That's barely a community.
>If it's a kike adaptation, why is every Red Ranger except RPM white?
Because Saban believed RPM sold badly because the MC was not white. And when push comes to shove, Jews care more about money than their racist agenda.
No, you just want to associate it with multiculturalism propaganda.
You were deceived twice, you know how?
1.The assumption that there's some propaganda ruining society
2.The fear and pointing fingers at people, causing disarray and mistrust.
You were afraid of your own shadow and those Jews didn't even try, they practically made you guys fight and hate each other for some goddamn reason.
Then again, I'm taking this out on a limb. I just like my costumed Super Heroes. American or not.
You support pairings like Seiji x Megumi, you are guaranteed to be one of those retarded shippers who will disgrace the name of Precure and ruin it. Toei sure is really making the biggest mistake a company has done to its great franchise. Yeah Toei, pander to the retards who likes crappy cheesy heterofagging romance. I’m sure it will help attract your target audience in a great way.
We don’t need romance and we sure as hell don’t need generic bishonen/shota bullshitters like Seiji Sagara. You think adding more bastards in our Precure will help improve the series? You think it’s best to give yuri and its fans the middle finger in favor for those bastards? Huh, Toei?! A “goat-face troll” who has great charisma and the ability to channel his fans is 10,000x better than dull, bland, boring, generic, “childhood friend” shota shitface who exists just to tell yuri shipper to fuck off and goddamn hetfags to support him and Megumi. SAGARA SEIJI SUCKS MAJOR FUCKING DONKEY’S ASS!!!!!
Rest in fucking peace, Pretty Cure. Even a great 13-episode anime like Sakura Trick can beat you into oblivion.
R.I.F.P. Pretty Cure
2004 - 2014
I think this may be reaching a little bit
You don't know how Toei works, do you?
> arguing seriously with /pol/tards
>Responding to him
No. Come on, you guys were doing so well. Just report and hid
God, CG Nagisa is so ugly.
Talking about dreams and believes isn't all that uncommon in pop songs.
Hime Tactical Espionage Action game when?
That's not CG. It's animated by the original character designer.
Well I mean, I feel like when it comes to Precure OPs, they are full of generic lyrics all the time so there's normally some overlap.
Hey, I'm just saying. I'm all for saving my race and whatnot, but to conquer and bother people's right to live in this country is practically laughable.
It's like walking in the bad part of Puerto Rico and assuming I won't get shot by a stray bullet. Liberty is where it's at, Equality is just bullshit.
Now let's get back to Precure.
>God, CG Nagisa is so ugly.
That's not CG you ass
After Grape Solid Micchy.
Don't reply to it. Just report it.
Why is he such a terrible fighter? Even Hime is better.
Maybe it's the filters or something then, but I just don't like it.
She's the stealthiest.
It looks better than 10 years ago man. Just look at that detailed hair
Just look at this holy shit.
Maybe they all noticed her and just don't want to hurt her feelings.
Every day, Toei wishes for another year like Heartcatch when they were rolling in dosh
She skilled hiding and stealth so much, there weren't any points left for actual combat abilities.
Get it together, Ultraman.
I want to fondle Yuuko's Heart Pockets.
>Talking about dreams and believes isn't all that uncommon in pop songs.
Talking about flower buds which don't give up while they are seeing a dream and how they will go on even in troubled times is not common in pop songs.
It's two complex sentences repeated identically (if not for auxiliary verbs)
This was obviously copied/referenced.
I want to Honey's honey.
Yellow is the sparkling color of idols.
Fuck off, pal.
Let's stat Precure!
How would I play MKTN in D&D 3.5e?

It would be a shame. If you look carefully at the merch with her, she's almost always making a fist.
Yuuko is the prettiest Yellow
Guys it's only episode 1. Wait at least until 5 for that kind of lewd
That's not Sunshine
Sunshine isn't pretty though. Third/fourth cour Itsuki might qualify, but not Sunshine.

>All dump stats
Hikari, Ayumi, Hime
>All max stats
I'm fairly certain that at least Yuuko spotted the two.
A few seconds after this, she has a somewhat surprised look on her face, despite Megumi not saying anything that would cause Yuuko's expression to change.
Flower also goes in All max stats
who select the titles for the series
happinees charge soudns so ... fitting for precure
As expected of Yuuyuu. So best.
Considering how many big friends that have been charmed by Hime, don't you think she should have a decent Charisma score? She also charmed Megumi on their first encounter.
Does anyone else have the suspicion that Yuuko is actually already a Precure?
In addition to being cute, Cha is also the governing ability of social skills. If she gets to Yayoi level, then maybe.
You're doing god's work.
Now that you mention it, yes. Her smile is knowing somehow. As if she has a secret. That would also explain the discrepancy between her being introduced early and her pairing up with the late-joining Fortune.
It's time for "Are You Smarter than a Cure Gorilla?"
A bit of backstory. One of the comedians on the Smile Manzai episode is a fan of Precure, watching it with his daughter. He was invited onto a game show where they asked him trivia about the series.
The first four were quite easy, ranging from putting the shows in order to naming the Y5s and matching the toy to the attack. This final one's a little tough though. He couldn't get it, let's see if you can.
Without pulling up the episode, or watching to the end of the video, what does she say? Put your answer in spoilers so you don't ruin it for everyone else.
Nope, can't remember.
It's possible. Would be pretty unique. Don't think Toei has the individuality to do it though
>Literally dumber than a Cure Gorilla
After the third quarter, Bandai is expecting DokiDoki will have the lowest toy sales in the entire Cure franchise since Splash Star. Aikatsu now also seems to be bigger than Pretty Cure, and was placed among Bandai's main franchises, while Cure was dropped to the secondary level.
The answer is Precure is a children's cartoon and you'd have to be a gorilla to find it enjoyable/
Not even soccer moms could afford the Magical iPad.
I have absolutely no idea. It's been over three years, give me a break.
How do Fresh and Suite compare? I'm almost done watching Heartcatch and I didn't like what little I've seen of Smile and DokiDoki so I'm thinking of watching one between Fresh and Suite next.
How? On arcade games and cards alone?
They're kind of similar than not. Even to having divisive opinions regarding their first and second halves. That said, Fresh is good. Watch Fresh.
>/pc/ is full of gorillas
Can a single person step up? Come on, there has to be one obsessed enough HC fag out there.
I'm currently watching Heartcatch, HaCha, and Smile. I'll progress backwards from Smile to Suite, then Fresh, then Yes5. But what do I do when I reach Splash Star? I could potentially be in a situation where I'm watching HaCha, HC and SS all at once, which wouldn't be good.
Don't expect any other season to be like Heartcatch to begin with. Suite is better than Fresh in terms of animation, music, stock footage, and production in general. Fresh is silly, but still good if you look over its rough edges.
They're only a tiny bit similar. Fresh is better. Watch Fresh.
There's a new HC in town. The third impact of Precure comes in the form of HaCha usurping Heartcatch's place as the #1 newfriend Precure.
Wait, why wouldn't that be good? Just watch the series in whatever order you want. Feel free to watch FW and SS at the same time if you want.
I don't like HaCha. There has to be a better name.
Everything else but Fresh and Suite have 2 letter abbreviations. And even those don't need me to hit shift twice. Can't we call it like HCha or C(Ha) or something?
>the #1 newfriend Precure.
I thought that was Smile. For all the wrong reasons of course
The first one is something about Dune's hate being most painful to himself.
Can't remember then second one.
>watching HaCha, HC and SS all at once
No one could handle that.
My rule of thumb is to avoid watching SS so close to Futari wa and Max Heart. Unless you're a perfect human being, it'll ruin your perception of at least one of those two series, depending on which you watch first, at least a bit.
I guess I'll watch SS before Yes 5 and GoGo.
That'll mean that I finish with Max Heart, though. It feels strange going backwards through a franchise like this.
No. We've been calling it HapCha for like over two months now
We can't use 2 letters because of Heartcatch anyway
>How? On arcade games and cards alone?
Well, the numbers by themselves don't show how it was done, but 9 months into the year Aikatsu has already surpassed DokiDoki by quite a bit ((9.9 billion yens vs 6.5 billions for DokiDoki).
Really, it seems like Ace really killed DokiDoki. If you compare it to the last financial report, in the third quarter, when Ace debuted, DokiDoki only moved 1.6 billion yens in toys for the third quarter, VERY low numbers for Pretty Cure, almost Splash Star level.
I watched SS first. First two seasons are unwatchable now.
Reverse chronological order is actually great. Stick to it. Watching GoGo before Yes 5 and Max Heart before Futari wa is the best way to do it.
>HCha or C(Ha)
That's some real chemistry shit right there.
>#1 newfriend Precure
That's very likely. I would be amused by HaCha is the only good Precure fags upsurping the HC is the only Precure fags, especially if HaCha somehow becomes my favorite. It might if they go G Gundam on us, if only by a small margin.
Here's what I think is the truth. Bandai's sales on Precure are low, but Bandai is not the only partner. They only do the DX line of toys like the henshin items and the attack rods. The bulk of the merch is the general store goods with the characters on them and in that Precure is still bigger than Aikatsu and many others.
Should I leave it till last then?
It's not like I'll finish them any time soon. I won't even start Suite for another 8 weeks or so, going by my current pace.
Only lamers have been calling it HapCha. HaCha is the superior abbreviation.
I bet elevens use HapiPre. That's kind of nice because it rhymes.
>Ace really killed DokiDoki
Let me find my secret stash of 'I told you so's.
>Let me find my secret stash of 'I told you so's.
I'm sure everybody knew Ace's intro had killed the show. The ones saying otherwise were just trying really hard to be in denail
They use Hapicha, as far as I remember.
I knew it from the start, as soon as she came and tanked the fuck out of Regina, I thought "Welp, Dokidoki is set to fail. well done, Toei."
I liked Ace/Aguri. I guess the point at which she was introduced was an issue, but I think the real problem lies with Regina and the start of a plot before Ace got there.
Introducing Ace at that point just removed the plot for 10 episodes or so. If she joined earlier, and Regina later, I think it would have worked better. Sure, all the plot would be condensed into the last third, but I think it would work.
It's just one of those things that no one wants to be right about and everyone would have been a lot happier had it never happened.
No use crying over spilled milk though. I feel kind of cheated in the fact that it was the first Precure season I watched with /a/.
I wager that everyone thinking otherwise just wanted to believe that little Japanese girls have good taste. But it was not to be.
It's funnier that they tried to damage control it with this "seemingly" mysterious past that was practically obvious from the start.
It makes the whole Wiseman/White Wizard shtick look like a masterpiece in comparison.
A quick pixiv search reveals that they use both hapicha and hapipuri or "HapiPre" like that anon said. Though I personally prefer the latter since it's easy to create an abbreviation with puri at the end for every season.
I'm glad that it was Doki Doki rather than what I've heard of the Smile or Suite days. Maybe HC livestream wouldn't have been so bad, but then I would angst about most seasons not being done.
> If she joined earlier, and Regina later, I think it would have worked better.
Yeah. I think so too. Doki Doki is frustrating because it had all the pieces to be pretty good if it was just rearranged differently and small changes made here and there.
Yeah, that was why I thought they did. Convention. I remember seeing DokiPre on some of the stream schedules.
Maybe the children ratings stayed the same and the "other" demographic lowered instead.
Same. I watched FW last and still found it boring.
>I wager that everyone thinking otherwise just wanted to believe that little Japanese girls have good taste.
Well, Japanese bigger friends have pretty bad taste overall, too.
Liking Dokidoki is good taste. Even if you dislike Ace, she wasn't enough to bring down a show as great as Dokidoki.
While SS is the better season, FW has some charms of its own. I'll admit that it's unpolished though.
I'm almost tempted to say that FW would be better off with only 2 cour, but the series feels incomplete without the finale of Max Heart.
>she wasn't enough to bring down a show as great as Dokidoki.
please give me all the drugs you are currently on. I want to see the world through your eyes.
Truly a brave thing to say in these times. I honestly agree.
Wasn't it said that FW was originally a 2 cour anime that was extended because it was more popular than expected?
It's a good show if you don't expect it to be anything else than Mana chan power hour and friends.
It certainly seemed like one, but I don't know the details.
2 cour kids shows are rare
What a ripoff.
But Precure was a big gamble at the time. Planning for a full year of it would have seemed risky.
How? It's not like magical girl shows with violence were anything new.
What flavor is the yellow one?
The entire second half, sans the finale, was removed. Right after the training arc, we jumped into the Ai arc which is also nothing but filler.
Like others have said, Ace could have worked if they did things differently, but the way it happened in reality almost felt like they were stalling for time until Regina got off her bus.
Most of those catered to older audiences, or were adaptations of already popular works like Sailor Moon. Anime originals are risky.
Not him, and my mahou shoujo power level is embarrassingly low, but don't most, if not all, mahou shoujo have a bit of adult humor in them?
Precure seems pretty forward in that regard, trying to create a show entirely about girls, and for girls, without falling back on adult or crude humor.
pretty forward thinking*
Not really. I guess you could say Precure is more "children" and less "all-ages", but there were plenty of all-ages magical girl shows. And Precure still attracts a big friend audience anyway.
This is just a tiny part of the total profits though.

That's fiscal 2012, but still it shows that Bandai's plastic toys are just a tiny part of PreCure profits.
Sword stuck between things.
I love how that scene still gets fanart
All that fujobait. And people complain the lolicon are ruining anime.
Are you going to show your loli daughter Precure, /a/?
She didn't like it much.
Huh, so even Jewelpet is higher than Aikatsu
If I get one down the line.
>having a kid
>having a money sink detract from buying more Precure merch
As if I'll ever reproduce.
As far as I can tell it was first appeared 51 weeks (to the day) ago on /pc/. So this is something we should feel some pride over.
51 weeks is one week away from 52 weeks which is a whole year.
Fiscal 2012 is 04.2011 to 03.2012. It's obviously much bigger now.
Nah, I'll make her watch Sentai.
So wait, /pol/tards thing multiculturalism is bad, and that jews have some international conspiracy to promote multiculuturalism in otherwise-pure nations?
Do I have this right?
Even though the largest cultural influx in pretty much every part of the western world is jew-hating arabs
>responding to a post 3 hours ago
The idea of breeding and fighting the "bad" racism is stupid, as we didn't have the same problem as we did back then
Is that this artist?
>Fiscal 2012 is 04.2011 to 03.2012.
The Aikatsu anime started airing October 2012, no surprise it doesn't show up on the list.
This crayonwork puts Kawano's to shame.
Mmm... Cheek peek.
Nopan is best pan.
One of the best Haruyamas.
I wanna get into Precure, how many seasons can I take before QUALITY can kill me?
Man, inflation hit anime hard.
QUALITY won't kill you.
It'll only make you stronger.
Start by watching the current airing season.
Then you can pick and chose a season that has the cutest character designs or w/e.
I'd suggest Yes! and/or Heartcatch.
>mfw I plan on using this in quality subtitle threads
That looks awesome.
Also, I just realized I saved a lot of pretty bad art for DokiDoki. I guess that's what happen when you watch precure on-going instead of just grabbing the best art when you finish a season.
It's not nice to make fun of little innocent mistakes. You should make fun of the big mistakes instead.
You do realize something completely different is off with that picture right?
Other than the video encode? Because I'm too blind to notice the artifacts unless it's in motion.
Well, the subtitle IS incorrect.
It's not, though. That's actually what she says.
It's a little joke between her and the shopkeeper.
This is going to sound really silly but today I learned Japan puts Arabic numerals on its coins
It's not like it's the first time I've seen coins in anime, but for some reason all this talk about 20,000 yen made me notice it.
Nope. She does make the joke of saying a big number, but that number is not 20,000.
>today I learned Japan puts Arabic numerals on its coins
Yes, except on one of them.
But that's wrong
Which Precure season has the best OST?
Or rather, what's the best Precure song?
Smile ED 1.
Not really though
In fact, all of Smile's scoring is fantastic.
Whos the pixiv artist?
I like Eien no Tomodachi, myself.
>what is saucenao
>Which Precure season has the best OST?
Lately I have been really enjoying Doki's OST, but HaCha looks promising.
Soundtrack is pretty hard to decide since the majority of seasons are pretty kickass when it comes to soundtrack.
Best precure song is also too hard to pick. If I had to say Smile probably has the best vocal album, and Futari Wa precure has the best OP and ED.
Dat 100% Hero, Dat Only Wonderful.
Suite and Smile best OSTs.
Rosetta and Moonlight best character songs.
It's funny to think that Buki is the most popular Fresh on /pc/, despite being so irrelevant in her season. I wonder how she would feel about it.
Is she a Touhou?
First time I heard it I thought her song sounded more like a Touhou remix than a Precure song.
What's this pic about?
I bet she's soft. Real soft.
I wish the second vocal album was as good as the first. Dance at dawn was good but that's pretty much the only one I remember.
And yeah, the Moonlight song is also amazing. So good they re-used it in one of Suite's background tracks.
Out of the Doki ones I really liked 5minutes which was Ace's song.
Like a marshmallow.
Best character song.
It's pretty good, but it's not even the best Smile song.
Both of Akane's and Yayoi's are top notch
The Bad End kingdom is also awesome.
Akane is a girl!
But guys, what about Happy Song?
Good too, but overshadowed by the others.
I can't see even the most dedicated Smile haters not liking the relay race episode.
Heart goes on.
Not as memorable but still alright. Moving a little from Smile.
I loved Smile but that actually wasn't amongst my most favorite Smile episodes. It's still a strong episode though.
I need good Tsubomi doujins.
Throw them this way.
Will Heartcatchman work his magic and bring Precure back to Heartcatch-level profits?
Who said they had to be porn?
But yes, porn would be nice.
So far, it looks to have more in common with Doki than HC, at least in terms of visuals.
[アンソロジー] キュアビッチマリンHC ~あたしだって攻め責めしたーい~
Is there such a thing as a hag loli?
Hag or not, she's one fine girl.
I just wanted to find one of my favorite Fresh songs on YouTube, damn it.
Yayoi looks pretty good in that outfit.
You should click those links.
I want to deflower Tsubomi
>Pure Non-H yuri love
Why is Yayoi trying to destroy happiness?
She's noy Yayoi, she's Ikuyo. Get it right.
>Yayoi's manga got canceled
>I'll give the world a bad end
O-oh... Hey, cut me some slack though, I couldn't know unless I opened them. And in most cases, doujin links lead to porn.
I want evil buki to lick me
We need a HaCha doujin similar titled "Happiness is Having a penis".
Only if you're a girl or a fairy.
Better yet, "Happiness is a Warm Cum." Because Nips can't into English and it's a reference.
So I already know I'm in the minority here when it comes to this but does anyone else think the best part of Doki was when Regina was gone?
Since it actually worked on developing other characters and their relationships, had more good episodes, and the action improved a little.
>developing other characters and their relationships
With Mana. Everything about Doki revolved around Mana. If you removed all the other Cures except maybe Cure Sword, the whole show would have been the same, more or less.
Personally, I think the best part was before she showed up. But the part in between her appearances was still the worst part. Cour 1 > 4 > 2 > 3.
>So far, it looks to have more in common with Doki than HC
This is wrong in like every possible capacity
Fine with me, I loved Mana.
