I forget, do any other Cures besides the Futari Wa and Splash Star girls actually need their fairies in order to transform? Mostly they just seem to serve more of a mentor role these days.
Didn't the Heartcatch girls need them? They don't actually transform into the Heart Perfumes but provide the seed, right? I suppose the Pickruns and Tones might qualify, technically, but the Tones don't need to stick around.

Certainly not so much in the more recent series, though.

Oh yeah, that's right (or at the very least the orginal two did, not sure about Sunshine and Moonlight).

Sunshine needed Potpourri: that was the big deal for several episodes that when Potpourri was born, she basically meant a third Cure was going to be on the team leading to the search and eventually Itsuki joining them.

When it comes to fairy usage, one thing I find that they try to do to integrate them as part of the team but gets supremely annoying...is the final form. I know they want to keep fairies as important but seeing them as the instigator of the final forms as opposed to their old position as power sources just...bugs me.

Star Twinkle teaser website open.

The tagline is "Paint the sky (space)! My imagination!"

The kanji used for space is 宇宙, the same space in the context of something like Kyuranger or Fourze. Doesn't mean it can't have idol elements, but for now space is what they're promoting. Also Imagination.

I guess with the streaks off the star, we are once again getting a Pink, Blue, Yellow, and Purple Cure again, a la Happiness Charge Precure and Heartcatch Pretty Cure. I sometimes wish we would get a main cure who is another color than Pink. Never gonna happen, but still ...

Technically we had that in the original series (Nagisa's suit and Cure designation are both Black), but she's still officially classified as a Pink. Also contrary to what I've said before, Cure Bloom actually is pink, it's just a much darker shade (though she does technically become a Green in her upgraded form).

At any rate, looking forward to Precure in Space in a few months (wonder if they're going to sneak some Sailor Moon references in there somewhere).

When I see "space" and "imagination", somehow I think of the ToQ movie....and funny thing: the girl from that movie was Cure Pudding's VA!

ToQger by way of Fourze sounds like it might make for a fun Precure season to be honest. Looking forward to seeing more.

I'm curious if the naming theme this time is going to be planets/moons/stars, constellations, or just space themed stuff in general.

Just a tweet from the official Precure merch store about tickets for something that's expected to be popular.

A green member gifted with temporary powers, but also setting a precedent. Henri (or Cure Infini) is now the X-1 Mask of Precure. And the first official male Cure. Miracles can happen.

I posted that literally minutes after it happened. While the episode was still airing.

Yeah some have been pushing for a "male Cure" for a while...guess they got their wish. Probably not going to be a regular thing but there are female Riders so...

Ah, right. Subs don't usually drop until Sunday night so I forgot when the show actually aired in Japan

I saw a clip and it looks interesting enough (and if we were going to get a male Cure then Henri was probably the most logical choice, though there was sort of something like that in Kira Kira as well). Assuming Cure Tomorrow returns at some point would this be the first series to have more than six total Cures?

Here's the clip in question if anyone's curious:

Holy crap that'sepic! I do like Henri quite a lot so this doesn't bother me at all. Henri' s character is so damn good in this series.

I especially like how respectful the writers are to his character. Henri isn't a stereotype, he's never the butt of a joke, he's just a dude who likes to wear women's clothes and doesn't care about traditional gender roles and the show doesn't treat this as weird or wrong in the slightest.

So yeah, I'm completely fine with him becoming a Cure and look forward to seeing the episode for myself.

I suppose you could say Henri's love of women's clothes got taken to a logical extreme here. No Mirai Crystal though, so we're not gonna be seeing Cure Infini again for at least a while. At least he gets a better Win record than "Cure Waffle" did.

This is why I love Henri. The writing behind him is excellent. Other companies could learn a lot.

I can't wait to see this episode as that scene makes me hyped.

Look like Henri's case make Hugtto team realize that The Future of people will not always bright or have uncertainty but still cheer up them to find new goal
