Precure Franchise: It's Space Time!
I saw one thread from before, but that was just focusing on the current PC series. Thought I'd make one for the entire series in general.

So anyway, as one who read the WITCH comics, and watched the WITCH and Winx Clubs cartoons, for a while I seemed to have a sort of liking for magical girl series (Ironically, I hardly watched Sailor Moon). So then I saw Fresh Pretty Cure, and thought it was decent. Watched a couple of episodes. Eventually I started watching some of the PreCure 5 series and liked it.

But what really caught my eye of the entire franchise in general was this:


I love crossovers. I'd like to watch it if it were subbed, and it might get me into watching the other 2 PC series.

Anyone else watch the series?

I used to be indifferent about this series, but the designs in the newest show are pretty cute while not completely lolicon for once (i.e. they have boobs)

Also, [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dPLNhs5uqWo]the music is good.[/url]

Spider-Phoenix August 24th, 2009 12:47 PM

I watch and now i'm a big fan!

I'm currently watching Fresh PreCure and i totally love it!The characters are great, perfect and the story is fascinating!Specially all the mistery about the 4th, that was a big mistery in the beggining even for older audience because the series make you think another person was going to the 4th, but after it was another!

It's like a fusion between Sailor Moon, Super Sentai and DBZ (the first series had the same director who did DBZ)

This series is great.I'm turned into a great fan of the series.

Wait, there's a dub of the first series? I gotta see that! Is it any good?

Also I'm hearing that the 2nd one, Splash Star, is the least popular one. Is that justifiable?

I'd say my favorite is PreCure 5 and 5 GoGo. Having 5/6 characters as opposed to 2 or 3 makes for better character chemistry.

It was Card Captors / Mew Mew Power-ized, from what I've heard.

It stars "Hannah" and "Natalie."

Paraphrased from Wikipedia. [QUOTE]Fresh Pretty Cure! (フレッシュプリキュア! ,Furesshu PuriKyua!) is the sixth Pretty Cure anime series by Toei Animation, having started its run on February 1, 2009. The series focuses on three new Pretty Cures, Love, Miki, and Inori, who transform into Cure Peach, Cure Berry, and Cure Pine, respectively. Their job is to defend this world and the parallel worlds from Labyrinth. Midway a fourth Pretty Cure is introduced, Setsuna aka, Cure Passion.

After spending time with the girls as a spy, she begins to wonder what makes her happy and slowly opens up to them. Following a final battle with Cure Peach, her life was offered to fill the Life Gauge and she died. However, she was saved by the Akarun and Chiffon, and is reborn as a normal human girl with a Pretty Cure identity as Cure Passion. [SIZE="1"](But you should know this already.)[/SIZE] Her Pickrun, the Akarun, is red, wears a ribbon on its head and has angel wings.

G Gundam sounded like super robots instead of real robots... I mean a JAKQ ripoff.

Xalfrea August 24th, 2009 09:43 PM

So did only the first PC series get adapted, or did Max Heart get adapted as well? Or are there any words for Toei to allow the other series to get adapted as well?

Spider-Phoenix August 25th, 2009 01:20 PM

Fresh is great.Setsuna backstory is awesome!

Xalfrea August 26th, 2009 04:09 AM

So I just finished watching All Stars DX. Twas pretty awesome seeing all 14 (No Setsuna back then) PC's together.

Yeah, its actually pretty good. Toei is doing it themselves through Ocean Group. No 4Kids included.


Xalfrea August 27th, 2009 07:53 AM

^Hmm... that's actually OK. I like it. Is it me or is Natalie channeling Naruto?

So I gave All Stars DX a second watch, and as a massive teamup, I can still say its good, but there's some stuff that bothered me:


1. The Precure 5's really got a little too much exposure in the movie. Even though the 5's are my favorite group, they're shown a little too much, and even then, Nozomi (Cure Dream) was the only one who really did a lot of the talking.

2. For being the original 2, Nagisa (Cure Black) and Honoka (Cure White) didn't get too much to do during the non-fighting scenes. Sadly the same happened with the 2 from Splash Star. I did like though how Nagisa and Honoka were in the fights, them being the main 2 that got up close and personal with so many Rider kicks and melee fighting as opposed to the other 3 groups with constant projectiles and magical attacks.

3. The main baddie; where the heck did he come from? Is he some evil entity composed of the main evils of the previous Precure series? No explanation whatsoever.

4. Are we to assume that all of those cute, magical plushy mascots are part of one kingdom? Now granted that begs the question if all the Precures are taking place in the same Japan. But then again Super Sentai does that all the time, so...

5. A little too bad they didn't pull a Super Sentai and have one gigantic henshin sequence, a gigantic roll call and an "Ore wa! Pretty Cure!". But then again, their ******** do pull a Sailor Moon and are long, so...

6. I know this is plot related and nitpicking, but during the whole montage thing when all 14 are down, their motivation to fight was a tad cheesy. So the Fresh Precures want to continue fighting because they need to do a dance competition, the Precure 5's because they want to eat dumplings, the Splash Precures because they want accessories, and the original Precures because they want to eat chocolate stuffed bread?

7. I kinda felt that this should have come out a bit later. Otherwise Setsuna would have joined in on the fun as well.

Spider-Phoenix August 27th, 2009 09:40 AM

The villain was nicknamed "Silver Surfer" for some fans XD

Xalfrea November 14th, 2009 05:59 AM

Alright haven't kept up with this until now, so here's come news.

Fresh Precure will be ending this month, about 6 more episodes left.


The seventh Precure series, Heartcatch precure, will begin around February 2010. Reportedly it will go back to the duo format.

Finally, a second All Stars DX movie will be airing March 20.

Video was removed.

Quantum what do you mean by duo format? I never seen the original series but want to.

Xalfrea November 14th, 2009 08:25 AM

You know, they way it was in the original Futari Wa and in Splash Star: just two girls.

Precure 5 was detested at first simply because it wasn't two. And originally there were rumors that Fresh Precure would have 7.

Knight Rider November 14th, 2009 08:29 AM

Gotcha. I wonder if they would ever do a series with one sorta like Cutie Honey.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 04:17 AM.
