Nagisa is cool.
>Oh no, how are we gonna win the next lacrosse match!?
>Mepple just ate my chocolate!
>Oh no, FujiP-senpai just looked at me! ARIENAI ARIENAI ARIENAI
There. That's everything there is to know about Nagisa. Rinse and repeat for nearly 100 episodes while ignoring Honoka and Hikari.
Tall order. I suspect it'll be incredibly pretty and girly, but not the festival of animation that GoPri was. The little girls will love it, though.
Precure one-hour draw:
The theme is Komachi. I'm nuts about this girl.
Precards were the most wasted thing about HaCha
Anyone remember the intro to the DS game? THAT is what Precards should have been like.
We had the tools to have another Wizard in terms of fighting and it was thrown away.
I want to do lewd things to Shut
LEWD THINGS I SAY
It's amazing how one episode can change so many people's opinions on him.
Or at least bring his fans out of hiding.He finally won me over this time.
Shut's fucking smile at the end. He knows he's won.
WHY THE FUCK DO I ALWAYS NEED TO HIGHLIGHT THE GOD DAMN SPOILER IN OP'S POST
EVERY SINGLE FUCKING TIME
I'VE NEVER SEEN PRECURE AND I'VE NEVER POSTED IN A PRECURE THREAD
BUT EVERY TIME I SCROLL POST
I JUST FUCKING GOTTA SEE WHAT'S BEHIND THE SPOILER
IS IT SOMETHING DIFFERENT THIS TIME? FUCK NO IT'S FUCKING PRECURE THREAD AGAIN FUCKING DAMNIT WHY DO I KEEP DOING THIS
I was at Pripara all day today and missed it, but I'll watch it as soon as the subs come out! You're really lucky, onee-chan... I wish the fansubbers still visited my room too.
Man, so good. Even better with the 「うるさい！」
Just shut up and watch the damn show.
It's kind of bothering me how without fail, Urara's hair blows in the wind, but Komachi's and Karen's only does sometimes, and Nozomi's doesn't move at all.
This one in particular, by the way.
The Yes5 transformations are so shitty. Even the blowing fabric and hair (looks more like wiggling, really) in Urara's doesn't help it. GoGo is such a blessing with it's stock footage.
You know, the thing I think I'll miss about GoPri is the intro.
It has the best OP and ED songs of any Precure season to date.
Is that pose a parody reference/picture? it feels so familiar
No one thought of the staff we actually got. They're all Precure veterans but haven't been working on the show as much lately.
The good thing is that Studio Guts confirmed they'll be working on Mahoutsukai. They're a pretty great outsource studio and should stay.
Today we take a quick look at the science of fairy-to-human transformations. Here we see how this lovely cat's natural roundess in fairy form translates to her clothing in human form. The more you know!
still forcing this retarded meme
>fall in love with a guy with a girlfriend
>next hint of romance episode is with a ghost
What happened to Rikka
I can't wait to Haruharu to achieve her dream and become a Grand Princess so that Maho Girls can start and we can find out what Mirai's dreams are.
Peachy han da bes
I'm especially amused/disturbed by the fact that this came with a channel populated entirely by precure and train videos.
>GoPri will end
>We will get MahoGirls
>Kirara will be reduced to a one-line role in the next All-stars movie never to be seen again after that
The girls should have waited a minute for her to break out. That would have been cooler.
Someone mentioned last time that they thought Hime was the Chosen. I like this image better anyhow.
>he doesn't know because he doesn't watch the show
I still can't find anything good for this in HaCha either. Never mind that they didn't really do the jump, but everyone flies anyhow. Boo.
Is Arle a magical girl too?
You won't see that shit in Mahou Tsukai since it's pretty damn normal for witches to fly. You know, on brooms and shit. Why jump really fucking high when you can summon a flying broom to anally penetrate someone, then fly on said broom?
so can someone tell me what is up with precure?
i always thought it was some crappy generic mahou shoujou anime full with QUALITY and stock footage, but then i saw crazy webm where some precure girl had a crazy ass kungfu fight with some kungfu dude and then i looked for some more fights and they were all really wel animated and some dbz tier fighting. the biggest suprise for me was that it was made by toei.
so what is up with that?
Being wrong is wrong no matter what, but I don't want to take it farther. Commie is wrong in this particular time because of the French nonsense, but Doremi memes more.
Sage for unrelated.
Think of Precure as an unofficial part of SHT.
That's what you get with freelance animators.
Last season had more armpit service, which is real nice.
something like a monster of the week kind of show with little to no plot full with QUALITY and reused stock footage and created with the purpose to sell figurines to waifufags.
maybe i used to the wrong words to describe it with my previous post did not mean to say it is shit or anything. sorry if i sounded like an asshole.
>purpose to sell figurines to waifufags
I suppose you should rethink from the beginning with the premise that it's a show aimed at children, not otaku. Also it would help if you used capitalization.
God bless our little flower.
> and created with the purpose to sell figurines to waifufags
Then Precure is not generic.
It's monster of the week show.
There's some plot and there is character development.
It's a show aimed towards little girls, actual little girls.
And don't think of 12 year old girls, the newer seasons are mostly for 8 year olds.
Fresh was popular with an older audience, Heartcatch has most universal praise.
In the end it's a show for little girls.
And I shouldn't have spend time writing more than 2 sentences.
Also if you're interested in colouring books, I can give you a link.
I'm in a good mood.
It is an average fighting mahou shoujo and probably more or less the baseline for the past ten years; contrast with magical girl adventure stories which are pretty different by nature, and the late night MS series intended for teenage boys and young men (think Nanoha). It is indeed rife with QUALITY with some seasons having it pretty much every episode in glaring ways (like Fresh) and some where it's rare and/or very well camouflaged (like Smile). It is also full of stock footage, particularly of a kind to shill cheap plastic toys, but that doesn't keep some of them from being especially pretty or well-done (see Suite's transformation animation if you want examples of some of the nicest).
Seasons range from having "crazy kungfu" every two to four episodes, while others only bust it out for the big climax episodes (that happen every cour or so). Fair warning, you may have seen the best 60 seconds of 50+ episodes worth of content, so it's best not to assume it'll be like that wall-to-wall.
The "plot" is usually pretty average, at best, but since it's also meant to create teaching moments for its very young audience, sometimes the theming is exceptionally well done. And yes, its purpose is to sell merch, of that there's little doubt. But it does have to be good enough to hold up as a 23-minute for that merch.
>Being wrong is wrong no matter what
This is true but I'd still prefer the occasional mistake Doremi makes over Commie deliberately making mistakes and throwing in jokes/memes that weren't in the original.
I love mktn
Why is there a druggie fairy
I'm mad again
> nobody would go and marry HaruHaru just in two weeks.
The seasons only have tongue-in-cheek references to one another, so if you want to be able to start at the beginning of a story, just pick a season other than GoGo or Max Heart and run with it. But you can just relax, too; It's a kids show, so it doesn't necessarily need to be binge-watched in sequence to be enjoyed.
I hear you.
I once opened a Precure Thread - have never heard of it - to see what was behind the spoiler. 4 years later and here I am.
I think you could make a fair argument that they actually were a weak point back then.
Close was fun but a pretty standard angry villain and his hate-on for Flora developed gradually into this more brutal and ruthless violence as the show went on.
Shut started life as the vain okama type, and his obsession with Twilight almost felt like a throwaway until they started showing how conflicted he was about Scarlet. His short scenes with Miss Shamour helped a ton too.
Lock wasn't terribly compelling (unless you like little boys) before he got that magnificent bastard moment with his plot to steal the keys and dragon form, and the split character idea was something different. As Kuroro, though, he's been there largely to represent the everyfairy of the Hope Kingdom and keep Towa and Kanata reminded of their motivations. But is that awesome?
The droids got style.
This episode had so many good shots of Kirara's legs.
I was quite surprised to see it end the way it did, though. To me it felt like it went against the message of the show.
I'm looking forward to it.
I didn't keep up with this one, but Kirara is incredibly hot. is it worth watching it just for her?
The ones I liked where Hearthcatch and Doki. Hapcha was ok.
>That cheap sucker punch he delivers to Shut at the end
What a prick.
I'm going to ruin Kirara's career by making her a mommy.
I had a dream where Erika became a dark angel and had the power to defeat every other precure that stands in her way.
And the first thing she did was blow up her school, just as she wanted in that one episode.
I'll give you the droids, that string of episodes where it was only them was painful.
But Shut and Close have become to motivated for me not to be interested in. Lock too to a lesser extent.
They're still not as charming as past generals but I like the way that Toei has finally gotten round to treating them as individual characters and figures in their own very small stories.
It's basic level story-telling but Toei broke my heart when they threw away the Phantom trio's potential like that.
I hope they continue and improve on GoPri's approach to the Generals in the next season and the one after it.
>I'VE NEVER SEEN PRECURE
anon, you haven't lived if you haven't seen precure
This artist understands my feelings completely.
>Curses...! But how?!
>I won't be led astray but your illusions!!
>But of course!! We've grown a lot in this past year!! (sharply!)
>(Hmph) There's no way anyone would be fooled by such a pathetic illusion in the final cour
>You insolent... No matter
>Then I'll just have to take these girls' despair instead
>She's absorbing so much Bad Energy from our Team Smile senpai?!
>Just what happened to you, Senpai?!
The burning desire to win at any cost. Even if it means hitting people from behind.
I guess that's what happens when you get old and cynical.
do you a webm where she rekts Dark?
The first time, yeah. This is the first half of it.
Not the finale, though. That was them just zipping in fortissimo around so I never bothered.
>i always thought it was some crappy generic mahou shoujou anime full with QUALITY and stock footage
It is 95% of the time. Standard motw fare, stock transformations and all that.
and 5% sakuga.
At least it gave us a canonical instance of one of the most powerful beings in mahou shoujo fiction
>literally defeating bishounen Galactus in a single girly punch
I actually really liked MarinexKumojacky. It was a bit brutal, actually meaningful for their personal conflict, and they actually had things to say to each other. It was just as much a battle of ideologies as fists.
SunshinexCobraja was less exciting for me, though, on all of those fronts. They weren't nearly as well done as characters as the other two though, so it's not entirely surprising.
Precure one-hour draw:
Today's theme is Lovely Pink.
Is there an image with all the heel shots after the cures land?
>In the end, the only one who can fulfill your dreams... is yourself!
From Episode 48: "Encroaching despair...! Princesses in a Pinch!"
>Haruka-chan and the others have always been protecting our dreams
>They've all been...
>Yes, we have kept it a secret until now
>That we are Precure
>That after this battle, Haruka and I will be getting married!
>Minamin, let's go already
Oops, that would be better as "the only one who can make your dream come true".
If HaCha had had a solid finale all the way through, I think that should've been a surprise considering the kinds of balls (in writing in particular) they had dropped earlier in the series, so any disappointment would be coming from unreasonably high expectations. GoPri probably won't be earthshatteringly innovative or boundary-pushing in its ending, but so far they've delivered on most of what they've promised or foreshadowed so I think you can expect good things. Maybe they'll even throw in a pleasant surprise or two.
This is how i'll remember GoPri
That Zetsuborg has to be one of my favourite monsters from the franchise. The way it moves and uses the cover & pages like as a mouth is done really interestingly.
Actually I'm glad GoPri decided to go with a lock instead of the goofy eyes we've had recently, or even the more serious ones. Just looks more intimidating.
I wonder if Miss Sham taught Kanata and Towa about the birds and the bees.
Congratulations. How does it feel to be such a special snowflake? I'm sure you are the only one person in the world who thinks that way. You must truly be the most special snowflake among all the snowflakes.
I find GoPri to be the best series from a technical stand-point, even better than HC. Which makes me sad, because I find everything else about it from characters to plot to be mind numbingly boring and lame. What a waste of talent.
>I honestly believe GoPri is the best season we've had since HC.
Do you feel like Haruka carries the show?
Or is it an ensemble success?
>best girl and best bad get best fight
What are they so disgusted about?
Thank you, onee-chan! You're the best!
Too much effort to greentext it all.
Seriously? Haruno and them are Precure?!
F-For a second weren't they totally naked?
I-I saw a classmate totally change in front of me!
S-Stupid! Just shut up, you boys!!
N-Nice! I got it on video!
Th-That's against school regulations!!
I saw it!
Damn, so JC models are like that...
Ah... lets, leeeegs!!!
Shit, this is crazy!
M-Minami, don't worry about it!
Hold iiiiiiit!! What are you doing standing out more than me?!!!
P-President, sorry but I saw everything!
Y-You're not lewd or anything! In fact, I'd say you're beautiful...!!
I-I'm about to...
Please henshin responsibly
I want to hug Nagisa's feet.
>aroma will never complete the trifecta
I hope you're prepared for the four hundred hour grind.
This is quite possibly the most satisfying punch in anime in recent years for me. To think that I initally didn't care for Shut and now he's Bunbee and Westar tier.
What the fuck, I had no idea about this.
>january half over
>still no maho cutie figures announced
PLEASE BANDAI I DON'T WANT TO BUY PLASTIC JEWELRY
On that note, how the fuck did they decide on Ellen for her name?
I don't remember them ever having any explanation or talk about it, they just started calling her that.
Maybe I missed it.
Nothing, and I like Seiren more anyways.
To be fair Ako's grandad's name is Otokichi and both of them have Japanese last names. The real question you should be asking is why Otokichi and his wife named their daughter Aphrodite instead of something Japanese and why Mephisto's parents chose that name for him.
