My friend and partner Potsticker is still trapped inside a mirror and I’m not strong enough a PreCure to defeat the Saiark on my own. So we’re not going to have our usual style of episode review. Instead, I’ll be handling this one solo. I’ll also be doing two episodes in one go so that we don’t fall three weeks behind! [ChiPsiUp]
So, this week it’s totes my fault this is going up so late. I am a lazy butt and so I apologize. ヽ(￣д￣;)ノ [Potsticker]
That’s what you’re going to start with, huh? [ChiPsiUp]
Well, I feel bad. I’m a lazy butt who is going to cover this blog with mold. Saiark! （；¬＿¬)
This week was fun. Hime goes to school. She’s a pretty manic character, going from super excited and full of energy one moment to completely unable to interact in a meaningful social manner. On one hand, it totally fits her character as the PreCure Queen of Blue Sky and as a sympathetic character to the audience who also may feel awkward in social situations. Megumi learns the lesson that it’s okay to not take things a million miles an hour and it’s okay to let people ease into things at whatever they are comfortable with– even though two minutes later she’s back pushing Hime again– but the point is that it’s a good message and HappinessCharge does well with showing it through the character personalities. Unlike some previous seasons where this sort of thing feels out of left field for whatever focus character is given the episode. Continue reading
Recap: Megumi is now a PreCure! However, the god Blue tells her that she must keep her identity a secret, otherwise her friends and family may be in danger. Unfortunately for Megumi, she is terribly at lying or keeping secrets, and no sooner than she walks out the door does she cause her childhood friend Seiji to be very suspicious about what she’s been up to. Later that evening, Seiji not-so-subtly tests her when he’s over at her house for dinner, and while Megumi doesn’t spill the beans her reactions basically give everything away! The secret doesn’t stay hidden for long when a monster attacks the next morning. Seiji jumps in to help fight, despite being just a normal boy, in order to rescue an old lady and her dog. Megumi and Hime arrive on the scene and transform to defeat the monster, revealing their secret identities to Seiji in the process. Blue eventually allows Megumi to tell Seiji everything, but on one condition. They must not be dating, because PreCures are never allowed to have romantic relationships!
We’re now three episodes in. On most other anime, this would be the point of the “three episode test”, where one can form an opinion about the show. Sadly, that doesn’t work very well for an anime that’ll run for close to 50 episodes. So far, we haven’t really gotten much past the world building and premise yet. [ChiPsiUp]
I for one am excited that we have three Kamen Rider shows airing on Super Hero Time currently. [Potsticker]
Two episodes in and the Pink Cure still hasn’t defeated a monster! I feel like this is some sort of record. Even though Megumi and Hime are still filling their traditional color roles, it really feels like so far these first few episodes are about teaching Hime what it is really to be a friend. [Potsticker]
Maybe Hime is actually the main character, despite the fact that she’s not pink. To make up for the fact that our last PreCure pink is a character who decided to just do every single thing herself. [ChiPsiUp]
DokiDoki Precure – Chi’s Review
The newest PreCure series is about to start next Saturday. We here at Comet-Scans are huge PreCure otaku, and plan to blog about it. Before it starts though, we’re going to take some time and go through some of the PreCure series in seasons past. First up is the series that just concluded last week… DokiDoki PreCure!
