I maratonned Heartcatch over four days with a friend and loved it. I'm actually really interested in Smile Precure, but schoolwork has been keeping me busy a lot. However, this'll probably go on for a year, so I'll have lots of time to catch up.

I'm loving how insanely fast Smile's pacing is, if they really go and introduce 5 Cures in 5 episodes this might be really fun. The characters are really likable too, it's been a while since we had such great girls.

I'm curious about where the show will be heading to, since it hasn't been hinted yet. We should expect monster_of_the_week for a while after the characters have been introduced because this is fucking Precure, but what after that? If the rainbow pattern and their Pacts aren't red herrings there will be 7 Cures, that's something to consider.
As far as Precure goes, getting stale should be everyone's first concern. Some series like Heartcatch avoided the issue, while others like Max Heart suffered greatly because of it. I want to think the strong cast will be enough to sustain the show, especially if we get a couple more Cures later on.

Everytime the furry and oni collected bad energy, the hour hand on that "clock" moved. It goes up to 22 so I'm assuming there'll be light hearted monster-of-the-week until episode 22 (or possibly earlier) when Pierot is revived and shit gets real.

Whoa, shy moe, easily scared, yellow in color, and her name kinda sounds like Cure Piss? The writers sure are harsh on her.

Anyway, Smile is my first Precure, and I'm greatly enjoying what I'm watching here. Misaton's voice is delicious as usual, too.

So. Which other season should I watch? Heartcatch seems pretty interesting since I remembered /m/ talking about it quite a bit when it aired; what else do you recommend? Are there anything that's really essential or just screams 'MUST WATCH THIS', or just plain awesome?

>Are there anything that's really essential or just screams 'MUST WATCH THIS', or just plain awesome?

Allstar DX movie 1 isn't too bad, mostly just an introduction to each of the Precure sets, some interactions between the different pre-cure sets learning they aren't the only Precure in the world, and then all the hang-out places are shown.

DX 2 is very, very bad. In terms of CGI use. Adds the heartcatch girls to the mix with cure useless as the overall main character, but Cure love simply steals the show early on, and the overall experience leaves a *lot* to be desired.

DX 3 is very, very good. Incredibly good. Easily one of the best Precure movies to date, some will argue it is. Highly recommended to watch this, but a fair chunk of Heartcatch will be spoiled for you if you haven't watched it in it's ENTIRETY.

As for the series, many of them aren't completely subbed, which is a shame. Futari wa (season one) is highly recommended, while Max Heart's execution is the reason why there are new precure/mascotts/etc. every new season instead of a continuation of the previous season's characters (it's rather bad, in rather many ways, but not unwatchable). I'd also note that Max Heart Movie 2 is one of the best precure movies to date, if not THE best.
Skipping seasons 3-5, which aren't fully subbed,
Heartcatch is widely considered to be the best PreCure series (at least among those with subs)
Suite... gets off to a rather rough start (after the two-episode intro), but it mostly sort of redeems itself after the mid-season climax.
And then there's Smile, which is looking to be even better than heartcatch if they keep up what they're doing.

Note also that my opinion may not be the same as yours, or anybody else reading this.

I remember seeing some people complaining about Chihiro subs being retarded for using a separate file for the ED chapter, which changed every week anyway. If any of you are here, I just found out that they're actually doing it right. I read in some 2ch comments that the show actually runs at native 29.9fps (which is very rare for anime by the way) but the ED sequence runs at 23.9fps (TC'd). Using a separate file to keep their respective FPS was actually a good idea. Check it yourself (CTRL+J on MPC-HC).

Alright. So the only other precure series I've seen is Futari wa Precure. So my opinion of Smile is based on that.


But anyway, Smile Precure is pretty boring. It's like, the only focus of the show, is cute girls. And that's it. The characters themselves are kind of retarded and have little depth to them, the fight scenes are a joke, the bad guys are completely lame, and although it's only a Precure series, the plot still manages to be pretty shitty.

I mean, why in every fight do they all spam their move, get tired, and then that's it? In Futari wa Precure, at least the characters actually fought. And I think the show was better with less characters.

Every character needs their moment of glory when they are introduced, and without making everybody else seem like a group of assclowns in the process. Mascott reoccurring character that shows up once every 6 or so eps included.

Because it's boring when they just spam it. And besides, it's silly when every time they introduce a new Precure they follow the exact same pattern. All the current Precure's attack fails and can't go again, so the new girl has to do it. I could probably write those episodes.

Hard to say. While I really like the focus on comedy (seriously, Smile has some of the best comedy I've seen in anime) I miss the heavier themes from Heartcatch. The designs are good and all, but comparing them to Heartcatch's is unfair, really.
I've won't comment on the action scenes before the show's at least half way, but they can be impressive from time to time.

They only get a little bit of screen time to show off their personality, and there isn't enough screen time of them for those eccentric personalities to grow dull.

Hardly, nearly every one of the baddie character's personalities is demonstrated through gag-type interactions with the other baddies.

Who directed this episode? Because he's a fucking genius.
The story was great, it handled the theme of loss without feeling any forced or melodramatic at all. It also successfully tugged at my heartstrings, a rare occurrence, for me, at least. The fight scene was awesome, so much sakuga. And the atmosphere was excellent. You could blame that on the rainymood, bloom effects and dull colours, but for me it was the calm and serenity of the episode that did it. It was the little things, from the way Nao interacted with her dad to Yayoi's expression when she used her Peace Thunder. To be honest, I'd like every episode of Smile to be like this, even though it's not possible for a multitude of reasons, but it's obvious that we're back to the regular, hyperactive shenanigans in the next episode. But I don't really mind that either.
This was probably one of the best things I've seen so far this year though, I'd just like to throw that out.

It was directed by Suite's guy, surprisingly. He's a Toei guy who's been working on One Piece for ages and joined the precure department last year.
The visuals being absolutely amazing was due to the Ken Ueno (AD in Heartcatch's movie) and Nagisa Nishida team, which appears to be the best combination in Smile.

He was stupid enough to open with beam spam against the pretty cure. You never try to out beam the pretty cure, it just doesn't happen. It's not like Pierrot won't get ressurected again and and again.

and it looks like the DX # scheme was axed for the new all star movie. Lots of quality and when the different art styles of each of the characters are put next to each other, it is a little jarring.

not to mention the precure being side characters in the movie named after them

I think Akibaranger will attract new viewers to tokusatsu but the people who have been hyping the latest precure don't seem to have the stamina to follow it all the way.

I'm not him, but I agree. Akibaranger was my first sentai show (because I didn't know where to start, and the first episode was fun), and it really made me want to watch more tokusatsu.

I also started with Heartcatch (that's a new one, right?), and finished it in four days. Now I'm following Smile, and I intend to do so until it's finished. The length of other anime doesn't count if the show is good enough to hook you.

I watch Doremi's release. I've never had the problem of being unable to pick up on the verbal nuances of characters while the subs go; though I can read hella fast, so I have time to watch the character's faces and what is going on after I read what they are about to say.

otherwise, last ep was fucking painful to watch (almost as painful as the S1 play), this ep was beck; however, next episode looks like it will be quite good.

and then there's going to be the wait for the queen happy movie.

Oh, and I just noticed the precure's clock ticks every time they use an attack. Now we have the akanbe clock, the decor count down, AND this. I'm curious as to whether the precure clock will stop working after it strikes midnight, or give another power up.

I have really mixed feelings about this episode. One the one hand, it was cute. Like really cute. And I love foreigners I can actually like in my animes. I know that this is for four year old girls, but it's not too early to show a little skinship. Especially with all the lesbian innuendo we're getting. Needs more 好きやねん, methinks. Still, good episode.

This episode was by far much more enjoyable than I was expecting.
In fact, it's the single best episode of the Smile series so far.
Loaded with miyuki feet (there is a bit of QUALITY, but that can be forgiven due to the sheer amount of perfectly good quality feets)
princess form outside of the cut-scene group transformation attack
CHOGETSU POWA UPPU BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAM
purest form of love (x2)

While kids are obviously wetting their pants over any kind of storytelling, the nature of the show doesn't really let the story develop to anything real.

Of course we're not the main target audience, but I thought Smile was great because it didn't really even try to do anything with the "real" story. Instead it had focus on single episodes that weren't overblown with anime cliches that keep on dragging for many episodes.

Though maybe this is how all Precure shows are and Smile was an exception, dunno.

Does anyone else think Doki would be a lot better if there were only 2 cures? I don't hate Mako or Arisu, but they seem totally irrelevant to anything.
Rikka and Mana and their relationship is pretty much the only reason I'm still watching (nohomo), if there was a heavier focus on them I think the show would be far less disjointed than it currently is.

Without arisu and makoto, the series would be pink nagisa and uppity honoka manzai duo, which has been done to death by previous precure seasons and then the writers would end up with filler eps consisting of other memebers of their class/clubs happening every 3rd week to compensate.

Not that it's a bad idea, just Toei doesn't want to fork out enough money for the manpower to make it work. There's 4 cures, of which half of them are really fleshed out, and 4 baddies, only one of which so far is going to get actual characterization, as the theme for next week's ep. Also, we've already had one ep. of random classmate filler and we aren't even up to the half way point.

In short: Nigger please, that's a terrible idea.
>> No.45712  
>>45701
>>45705
Makopi at least has a reason to be connected to the other two, the show should be about Rikka and Mana meeting the famous idol/Precure Makopi and work on those three rather than adding a 4th cure who does nothing and has zero bearing on the story, just because this theme is playing card suits and they need someone to be Clubs.
The manzai duo thing has always been in Precure, but there is only one series with only 2 cures. Doki was clearly written to be about Mana and Rikka, so why not go back to a 2 cure series; if anything, the 'more cures than necessary' thing has been done far more to death. Also Toei being lazy is not a valid reason.

so I can expect a rainbow eyed Regina episode in the near future, with each eye color being a different personality? Right, Toei?

otherwise, Johnathan putting off tieing the knot until after babby formed is a rather indecent turn of events for a little girl's show. Even if the bride is a tad round about the belly, the marriage should've happened before child came out.

My, don't you (and the rest of the internet) love to form premature assertions. I'm not saying this couldn't be Toei trolling the fans for the sake of trolling, but couldn't you wait until next week's episode, when they expose the details (or not), before casting your presumptions?

And regarding A's' identity, we might've already gotten some cryptic hint in the latest episode, in the form of her catchphrase. Sure, one way of spelling it is "愛の切り札", but through the power of wordplay, it's also possible to write it as "アイの切り札", right? As in, "Ai's trump card." As in, you know, the babby's name is Ai? Taking it at face value, A's is a product of Ai's plotfuckery, and Ai is already a crawling (flying?) asspull machine anyway, so it's okay!

Also Regina being the new member would be boring. That will be like, what, the third time? Though the absence of RegiMana is surely regrettable. RikkaMana just isn't as delicious.

Fuck no. What else am I going to do to pass time for an ENTIRE GOD FORSAKEN WEEK for the next episode? I'm not the type who can sit idly around with my thumb up my ass for such a long period of time. And since they've given us nothing beyond a slight portion of her personality and what she looks like (not even a fucking name has been given), I have yet one more week with nothing to work with. Still sticking to her being the princess. How else would Ai know her aside from John introducing them, and whoelse would he introduce her to besides the princess? Unless Toei really is pulling her straight out of their collective ass, though allegedly her appearance as this was thought up and put into the story before the other four heroines were finalized and that's justification that she's not an asspull.

The guy who made Smile episode 43, the Reika one, is going to be in charge of that ep so at least we have that to look forward at.

Not really a fan of the Ira x Rikka thing to be honest but the episode summaries talk about the episode will be about Rikka's realizing what she wants to do in her life, that she's on the student council and is a Precure only because of Mana which parallels with her desire of wanting to be a doctor but because that's what her mom is. So basically the episode will be about Rikka sorting her life out and Amnesia Ira is the catalyst or something like that. Hopefully the "romance" will be kept at minimum.

Seriously, Toei. Stop ruining all my favorite Cures... Last year it was Nao and she practically ignored by the show and now you ruin Rikka with all the Mana/Regina business and now with trying to ship her with Ira... I honestly don't feel like picking a favorite Cure next year because I know Toei will ruin her for me one way or another...

I can see where using a screen of the preview for this week would cause one to make such a mistake. that's why posts have dates on them.

I was pleasantly surprised that the ep wasn't nearly as painful as it could've been. Still, compared to the entire ep. the other two cures needed to find themselves and power up, Arisu only got a 30 second montage of her as a baby. I was a bit let down by that, though it's not like she had much room for improvement; the ojou-sama is just too perfect for the problems that the commoners face to be of any issue.

I feel you for the next episode, though. That's going to suck. On the bright side, the writers won't run so dry on ideas for the ep that they use 1/4 of the episode on repeated animation with the transformations and the repeated long-versions of the attacks. Hopefully.

Oh dear, I just found out the blu-ray for New Stage 2 was released a while ago.

And this scene is still as satisfying as ever. Totally made sitting through the rest of the movie, silent Cures and all, and even the crapfest that was New Stage 1, worth it.

Early Dokidoki was great, it wasn't until Ace appeared that it freefalled. Actually Heartacth had the same problem as Dokidoki, but it's nowhere as worse.

Only HC had the whole Umakoshi thing going for it and was actually great throughout.

They're now Kamen Rider instead of Super Sentai, I don't see the problem?

Also Cure Lovely is really lovely. She is such a cutie!
Can't wait for Inazuma to slut her up~

Heartcatch had similar complaints for it's simple designs, if I remember correctly, but the stylistic choices made by the production crew made it very much worthwhile.

That's not to say Happycharge will be great like Heartcatch was, but at least wait until the first episode before judging it based on the designs alone. I just hope that choice wasn't made because Toei wanted to be lazy for year and have things simple to animate.

I liked Heartcatch a lot, and I am quite happy with just having watched that and Smile.

Smile, HC and FwP are the only series I'd recommend watching of the franchise.

This is wonderfully great.
The name puns, the manly toku baddie design, and the facial expressions are 10/10
The half-assed CG segments (that last <1 second each) are still jarring as they were in heartcatch, but the ED really takes the cake. The ED's CG mouth expressions range from impressively good to HOLY SHIT UNCANNY VALLEY.

Also Cherry Flamenco.

ugh, another new stage.

where's DX 4....
>> No.48202  
What's the difference?
>> No.48206  
>>48202

the new stages introduce new main characters (who are promptly forgotten after the movie ends, even between the new stage movies) and have all of the cures that show up mostly be side characters.

Note that I have no issue with that premise, but the execution is terrible; I really don't enjoy sitting through 45 mins. of the writers introducing and attempting to flesh out a new set of characters when it's done so half-assed when the only enjoyable section is the last 15 mins where the cures show up, deliver 1-2 lines each (if any) and then go through the motions of their combo attacks and big finale group mega combination attack.

The DX series is enjoyable because it is just the cures (who each have 1 full year of character development under their belts) interacting with each other in entertaining ways, with perhaps 5-15 mins of fleshing out the big bad so the movie would have a plot.
And with DX 3, the writers executed it flawlessly to the point where it is tied for best precure movie to date.

Well, shit. I'll eat my own words there.
Not saying that alone means the movie will be good, but it's hopefully not going to be as bad as the other two new stages.
