Will finish rewatching Precure 5 tonight or tomorrow. Do I rewatch GoGo of Hearcatch next?
I'm thinking GoGo.
At this point when I see a bad girl with the same age of the precures I just think "Yeah, she's going to be a precure around half the season"
It set a bad example for little girls.
In the way that they aren't cures at all. And I'm not talking about the Shiny Luminous or Milky Rose kind of way, I mean they just borrowed some power from Saki and Mai and don't stand on the same level.
That's no kind of logic at all. Also, that's not how the cure powers work anyway. The powers come from the fairies in splash star. Saki and Mai were just borrowing their powers from Flappy and Choppy all along. And it wasn't until Moop and Foop warmed up with Saki and Mai that they even could become Bright and Windy. Michiru and Kaoru have an arguably deeper relationship with Moop and Foop than Saki and Mai do with their own fairies. But most important here is just that, they are in fact Cure Bright and Cure Windy, unless you didn't watch it to the end.
No they're fucking not. I wish I could punch in the face anyone who says so, because you absolutely ruined my watching of Splash Star and made me hate it. They are not cures. They don't have cure names, they don't have a cure transformation, they aren't unique powers. They are two girls who got the powers of spirits and wore special clothes a single time. I'd have rather they never did that shitty subplot at all.
Those are some compelling arguments you make there about wanting to hurt me and how angry it makes you that you can't, but I'm thinking they don't actually counter any of my own about how the powers work in Splash Star or how they're literally standing right there, as Cure Bright and Cure Windy, in the episode, and on some anon's shelf.
Tell me where they're called cures by Toei then. Or how about you show me where they appear in the All Stars movies. Not once have they ever been acknowledged as cures, even in SS. You're just making shit up.
They fight the final bad guy right along side the other two cures as Bright and Windy. Toei already acknowledges it in the form of valuable merchandize. They're not cures because they don't have a henshin? So none of the international cures are either? You just keep raising the burden of proof higher and higher but really, there's no need for anythingmore than just paying attention to Splash Star. Girls become pretty cure by being granted the power to transform by a fairy. After a long drawn out redemtion arc and multiple battles alongisde the pretty cure as plain old Michiru and Kaoru, those girls were granted the power of the pretty cure by those fairies and finished the fight aongside the other pretty cure, as Bright and Windy. I'm not making anything up. You're just irrationally upset about Splash Star.
Burden's on you bro.
You're being an intentionally misleading faggot and you know it. The hawaiian cures are the only international cures with a henshin. By your logic, none of the OTHER international cures are.
No, because this is how you properly extrapolate. They're international CURES. The finale of SS is Cure Bloom, Cure Egret, Michiru, and Kaoru. I still haven't seen you post any evidence that they're called cures. Why not find an image of the merchandise you mentioned?
Your idea of "proper extrapolation" is to look at this
>Girls become pretty cure by being granted the power to transform by a fairy. After a long drawn out redemtion arc and multiple battles alongisde the pretty cure as plain old Michiru and Kaoru, those girls were granted the power of the pretty cure by those fairies and finished the fight aongside the other pretty cure
And conclude that they are not pretty cure. You rely not on the canon source material to determine what is and isn't within the series, but rather on the merchanidising aspects of the franchise moving forward. It's completely ridiculous to conclude that Michiru and Kaoru are somehow not Pretty Cure after watching Splash Star.
The main point, and honestly the only one I care about, is their names. Not being acknowledged a single time after the series ended is just icing on the cake.
I'm salty that I was led to believe they'd be cures earlier on, and then they fucking disappeared for over half the series, and even then when they finally came back were "cures" for about five minutes. What a letdown.
>Smile gets to be the Mighty Morphin of Precure
Remember when Saban was trying to get a Power Rangers anniversary together, so they mailed a letter out to all the actors and suit actors with the letter head "Dear Power Ranger" in comic sans?
For some reason, I have these saved in my "shitty fan art" folder.
You're salty about it being a letdown and I share that sentiment, but doesn't mean that it didn't happen at all, anon. Moop and Foop specifically said they werte granting them their powers, just like when they first did with Saki and Mai. They have the Bright and Windy emblems on their costumes. They use the color coded powers rather than their dark purple beams. They're Cure Bright and Windy. But because they don't strike a pose and say that's who they are, they actually aren't? Or it's because Toei didn't bring them in to fight as Bright and Windy in the crossover movies I guess. For some reason though, the event at the end of Splash Star apparently were meaningless.
>Tell me where they're called cures by Toei then. Or how about you show me where they appear in the All Stars movies
They actually are acknowledged as cures ina the new All Stars movie. They show up alongside Sucky and Meh in their dance, transformed.
It's straws, but I take what I can get.
The Cures are all flat. FLAT! (except Freshes)
Behead those who give the Cures breasts!
They should have never bought it back from Disney.
Not that I think Disney would do a better job, but because buying a show that they know has no value outside of Japan is a boneheaded thing to do.
Whoever drew this shot should be beheaded. I hope they fixed it in the Bluray.
Don't avert your eyes from reality! Can't you see that it's not healthy?!
is an American actress who provides voices for a number of English-language versions of Japanese anime films and television series as well as voice roles in video games and cartoons. Her notable roles include Maka Albarn in Soul Eater, Kid Trunks in Dragon Ball Z, Tohru Honda in Fruits Basket, Lust in Fullmetal Alchemist, and Shinnosuke "Shin" Nohara in Crayon Shin-Chan, the last of which she also served as the line producer. In video games, she provides the voice of Rayne in the BloodRayne series, Chun-Li in the newer titles of the Street Fighter series, The Female Protagonist in Persona 3 Portable, Rise Kujikawa in the Persona 4 series, Blaze the Cat in Sonic the Hedgehog series, Lucina in Fire Emblem Awakening, Serah Farron in the Final Fantasy XIII series, Serana in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Dawnguard, Spartan Olympia Vale in Halo 5: Guardians, and Jaina Proudmoore in World of Warcraft.
Except their names are Michiru and Kaoru and were meant to be Bright (as the waxing moon) and Windy (scent) from the beginning. Y'know, the second half of the kachou fuugetsu theme.
Bright and Windy are in All Stars, transformed.
Truyl, Toei's expertise with trolling little girls has no equal
Saban was the newest series back when they got the rights, so there's also that.
What do you mean by Disney? I know those magical girl loving Italians couldn't dub anything after Heartcatch after Saban got the rights.
Disney had all of the Sentai, KR, and Pretty Cure rights at one time. That's why they produced several PR seasons.
I don't know anything about PR, but from what I understand; they weren't very good seasons.
But they sat on the KR and Pretty Cure licenses up until Saban bought it all back.
Man I feel so bad for Southern Cross
She didn't ask to be imprisoned for what was years.
Remember when Hime and Megumi celebrated their one-year friendship? She was trapped for that entire year.
I come from the magical land of homolust.
Is it true? Did Saban touch you?
BTW, Toei seem with Maho Tsukai PreCure logo revision. English title was added.
Ancient news, onii-chan.
>tfw precure songs relieve stress
why are they so efficient at spreading happiness, pc?
Where do you all get your precure from? Ive been wanting to get into it, so grabbed all the random batches from nyaa/bakabt but for the most part all are either private/dead. The only ones Ive managed to get have been Smile, Heartscatch, Futari, one movie, and the later half of splash (no one is seeding the first 13 episodes). Not even getting anyone for All Stars/ Suite/ 5/ and most of the movies. Sort of depressing.
Havnt watched any of it yet- Im a completionist and like to watch things in production order.
Oh dear, that's a bit too inappropriate, wouldn't you think? Have this instead, as there's no way Minamin would ever have such a worried expression on her face like in your pic.
>labelled as non-English for some reason
Ill have to check that
the ones I grabbed from baka are all private even though my torrent isnt white listed. I dont really get it, a few other files Ive added (like Brigadoon) are the same.
I need to get on this.
Yeah but that was then. We don't get them now so we definitely won't get them for Glitter Force since that's not even well known.
Speaking of which, there's less than a month left until the first season drops on Netflix and the Glitter Force website still hasn't been updated.
I downloaded subs while they were being released or streamed them back when I was just getting into the series. Try Nyaa.
China has their own Precure that looks good.
America doesn't have Precure. America has torn-up newspaper clippings pasted in the shape of Precure. It's like saying America has Sentai.
This is the only American Precure as far as I'm concerned.
There's a bunch of footage before this with them floating around and shit, but it would have made the video way too long.
You're too spoiled by Precure.
I don't know about the ugly animated series, but they just stand around, sometimes beam spamming in the latest one to keep up the animation quality with its low budget.
>They'll make Smile good
>it's almost confirmed they will cut Yayoi's dad episode
It doesn't seem like that statement will last long, just wait until they cut mecha, March family, Miyuki's grandma and Beauty vs Joker episodes.
I liked how the kingdom had a dungeon with electrified doors.
Apparently when balalas transform the contents of their pockets don't change.
Have precures ever had actual cellphones, I don't remember.
It's got this kind of weird atmosphere where everything is happy like in precure, but they're not afraid to show death or that there are miserable homeless people sleeping in the streets in certain parts of town.
Are we expecting this to be better or worse than Canadian Pretty Cure?
>finally learn enough jap in order to watch raw little girl cartoons
>find out balala exists
Literal Chinese cartoons almost always include burned-on Chinese subtitles on the video itself for some reason. It extends to live-action Chinese dramas and movies too. I think they even get them on the big screen even if the original language is Chinese.
That's one advantage of subbing Chinese cartoons that not much people think about. It only requires knowledge of READING the language, not SPEAKING or HEARING the language like the approach taken with most Japanese anime. Plus, it means bilingual subs too, so that's a big plus.
It also had DOUGHNUTS
I have Chinese cartoons playing in the background right now. I don't watch, but I can hear them. This way I will acclimatize to the ugly Chinese language and be ready for the Balala era.
The dumplings sold by that one chick were referred to as "doughnuts" for the entire series.
English is not my main language but I think "Pretty Cure" sounda kinda weird, japs usually just throw random cool-sounding english words in their animes.
What does "Cure" in the context even mean?
Are they like beautiful nurses or what?
>/pc/ suddenly likes Blue now
How long have I been gone?
There is a surprising lack of discussion about GoPri ITT. Even DokiDoki and Suite had followers this late in the year. Did it turn out that badly?
>That dub was pretty good at times.
And that's saying much considering Blue Water Studios is a notorious second rate dubbing studio which makes their G Gundam dub pretty damn lucky
It's hard to nitpick a show that's actually solid.
Second question: Why is everyone watching a literally Chinese cartoon?
>Favorite Sentai series to date has been Mahou Sentai Magiranger
>Now Toei's making Mahou Tsukai Precure
Oh, I'm gonna watch this shit!
Because the better alternative isn’t /a/.
I just saw this pretty amazing gif on someone's signature on Baidu. Does anyone know the source and if there's anything like it for the other Smiles?
a certain clash between lighthearted atmosphere and the things actually happening is great. it fuels all kinds of
>wait a minute
GoPri is a good season and I already had my fill funposting and discussing the previous episode. I don't have to keep bringing it up to make it seem relevant, the show doesn't need my help since it delivers every week.
And I'm not surprised that your initial thought about the lack of discussion is that it's bad since you probably haven't seen it.
And I'm also a proBalala anon so it's a win-win situation for me. Everyone talks about Balala while I wait for the next GoPri episode to air.
As a /co/mrade, color me disguste-
-interested. Mildly interested.
First season is bland. Watch the movie instead.
A's is GREAT, but I haven't seen the film version and thus cannot provide a comparison.
STRIKERS is fucking horrible, and anyone who disagrees has objectively shit taste.
>Haven't seen A's movie
Nigga what are you doing with your life
starts off as your typical monster of the week/fetch quest magical girl show and then diverges into /m/-flavored magical girls over time.
don't listen to >>133815956, he is a faggot
>First season is bland. Watch the movie instead.
the movie is for people with ADHD / eye-candy once you've seen s1. s1 builds out the characters better.
and the movies aren't canon anyway.
>STRIKERS is fucking horrible, and anyone who disagrees has objectively shit taste.
strikers is worse in comparison, but it's still way above seasonal garbage.
It has its moments.
Totally Spies was just worse version of Cat's Eye.
Which prcures are playing Fallout 4 right now?
I think North Korean animation usually this good. I don't remember why, probably has something to do with it being state funded and the only cartoons they're exposed to are old Disney movies. (My assumption.)
>best balala is blue
>best lolirock is blue
First season begins slow, but becomes great around the time Fate appears.
A's is top tier and a must watch when it comes to Mahou Shoujo.
StrickerS is roll-coaster with a lot of highs and lows.
Be sure to play the PSP games if you know moon and hear the drama CDs.
The movies are just eye candy and in-universe propaganda.
tentacles and magical girls go hand in hand
Unfortunately the pacing get's worse and the effects of having a 'no continuity' rule forced on them starts showing towards the end.
But the writing in the individual episodes is usually snappy and the characters likeable, the twins make the show.
Yes, unmute the internet volume. It's a common issue.
>has a mark on her face from sleeping on the desk
That's actually a pretty neat detail.
>let's show all the old characters of the day
>except Ichijou Ranko
>Didn't even rescue herself
>thinks she can be a cure.
You can't protect ANYONE
NOT EVEN YOURSELF
>This episode was just for a teasing for Yui cure
>be a Reginafag
>be an International Curefag
>be a Yuifag
Everyone says that every dog has his day, but I'm convinced some people are just born losers and they can't do anything to change that fact.
No, she stopped because she realized that she could and should be following her own dream. In all honesty, only Haruka and Towa want to be princesses, whereas Minami and Kirara are in it because they were chosen and have all the qualities of them.
But this was a good episode. We don't need every single episode to be focused on what the four cures do: we get 48 episodes of them, a few can be spared for their friend. It showed a very simple story of where Yui is right now, a reaffirmation of her own dream and what she really wants out of it. It was extremely similar to Haruka's climax two episodes ago where she recalled herself as a child, and here we see a little girl say she loves drawing because "it's fun". And that's really all you need to have a dream. Yui is growing, and it is in fact significant that she can fight against the villains to protect herself. She resisted her dream getting taken again, and fought against both Freeze and Shut together when both have the power to individually seal dreams. Then she awoke and stopped the Zetsuborg in its tracks, allowing the cures to finish it off. Unlike what some retards (>>133818487) think, she is the first and only person ever to do that. For a series about dreams, Toei is doing a good job showing that you don't need to want something as grand as being a princess, or a model, or a marine biologist to go through your own struggles and fight against them. And Yui's art is lovely; I can't wait to see this drawing in good quality.
