>Jewelpet is taking a rest willingly though.

It started in 2009 and has been yearly since. It's never taken a year off.
I'd add all this crap to my shittyfanart folder but then I'd never be able to add anything else in afterwards because no matter how bad it gets, it'll never hold a candle to it.
Maybe it needs to be renamed to "kindashittyfanart".

Yes this is the Glitter Force thread. We should really change the title. Make yourself at home.

To gather despair from you humans.
We need a Cure as mischievous as Lilie from Princess Tutu
I think I can see Precure die happy after that
I'm probably going to use Taima or whatever site is used for the liveblogs since that's easier for people to use for chatting during the stream. Does OBS work with that?
Not even close.
I mean she's no Mana or Nozomi, but Haruharu has a certain charisma that pulls the other GoPris forward when things are tough and whenever any of them are going through troubles she's the one to step forward and try to cheer them up

That bad guy really really pissed me off. Fuck that guy. Don't even remember his name. Tsumugi-chan kawaii. I want to hug her. Sometimes I like when the bad guys are really mean because it gets me into it, but this time it just made me actually mad. Too into it.
Love wants to be a dancer, not an idol. And if you want to talk about Haruka you need to understand that not even she means she wants to be a literal princess. If you're simply born into it, that doesn't make you princess-like (just look at Hime). She wants to be an ideal lady, a princess form of the Renaissance man.
Speaking of Nadja, http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm26184408
can anyone make an edit of this hat, saying "Top Cure"?
God, I fucking hate that kind of voice terrible american VAs do to sound cutesy.
It's so grating. Also, every single name is shit.
I mean, fucking Ulrich? What is he, a bank manager. Is he going to deny the glitters a loan?
I will never fucking get over this. However, I'm actually really impressed with the casting for Miyuki/Emily. I feel like they managed to capture someone with similar voice qualities to Fukuen Misato. Before I saw Smile I was expecting a much higher pitched voice on Miyuki, but they both have this element of depth that brings out more character.
It's always been a mystery to me how so many people can overlook how awful bad English VAs sound, since they're generally 20 to 30-something women voicing teenage girls in exaggeratedly high pitch.
>I can't wait to see what they do with race episode or Joker first battle.
They're not doing those. They're only adapting like 20 something episodes.
And they didn't even redraw her face right, it snaps into her frightened face for a split second as she gets further away.
The Joker episode is important as hell in Smile, is like one of the ten episodes actually important to the plot.
They will do it, just heavily edited.
I imagine they will have Joker win and fuck off without any speech.
>Glitter Force will air before we have real leaks
>it will cut best smile episodes and have terrible VAs
This feels like a nightmare.

Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse.
These are the leaks that /pc/ deserve, but not the ones they need right now.
Would you, /pc/?
I wouldn't buy anything related to Doki. As much as I enjoyed it while it was airing I don't want to support the type of people who thought Doki's ending was a good idea.
Doki is bad though.
The truth never dies.
All kidding aside, how much you like Doki as a whole hinges largely on how you feel about Mana. If you can't see why she's so incredibly polarizing, there may actually be no helping you.
First of all Suite is the gayest Precure. Secondly I want a series with a likable pink and a good ending. Neither of which describes Doki. Doki was fun to watch but that doesn't make it good. Knowing how it ends also goes a long way to making a rewatch impossible for me.
Link? I'm not ashamed of Hacha so I'd gladly buy merch to support it and its creators.
Not him, but Doki is bad for many, many more reasons than just the ending.
Regina is not one of them.
The voice actresses really aren't that bad.
Stop being so tsun for American animation. If Disney could do it 60 years ago it stands to reason we can still make good animation today.
If you're talking about this she clearly meant platonic love.
Girls say they love each other all the time. That doesn't mean they're lesbians who want to spend the rest of their lives together.
I'm the same person who posted >>134760793. Knowing how it ends sucks any enjoyment I would have out of a rewatch.
Why did you bring it up then?
>The only bad PreCure in recent history was HappinessCharge.
Happinesscharge was good though. It only went downhill after Mirage was defeated.
>Happinesscharge was good though.
Both main characters were literally insufferable.
>Knowing how it ends sucks any enjoyment I would have out of a rewatch.
The ending is not that important as the journey to it. Precure isn't just about final bosses.
>Why did you bring it up then?
You asked wheter someone know and I answered.
Hime was great. Too bad she got pushed aside for Megumi but even then Megumi is still more likable than Mana.
Knowing that the show is building up to a terrible ending casts a shadow over the rest of it.
Speak for yourself.
Of course I'm delusional. That's the point.
Like the Mirrage the "true ending", where everything was resolved, was when they rescued the king. There was nothing wrong with that. The episode later was just mandatory candy.
Mirage wasn't the "true ending" though. We knew from the beginning that she was being manipulated. Mirage was just an obstacle to overcome. The true ending was still better than Doki's. I can rewatch Happinesscharge with no problem.
Jesus Christ how horrifying. Is this what Precure looks like to Japanese?
I was expecting worse surprisingly. Still watching it.
The general content of a precure season, like all the dorky themes and punny names, sounds less ridiculous to you because it's in a foreign language probably, if that's what you're getting at. But if you're getting at the quality of the voice acting, I'll have to say that it seems to me like the Japanese take their performances more seriously and act accordingly.
If anything Precure brings me up when I'm down.
And it's funny. And it's cool. AND
I want a goddamn game off of it because there's enough punching and kicking to warrant one.
Is Saban this desperate? It's not even being advertised in their site, a social outlet, and is just thrown on Netflix with 20 episodes. What happened to Digimon Xros Wars? Dead slot or something?
The only despair I get is knowing my favorite Precure will never have a relevant role again.
To be fair, my first time coming to these threads was
midway after watching Smile,and I wanted to come here to see if the other series were as cool, if not better, than what I saw.
Imagine my surprise when I found out there's an entire franchise dedicated to a show about a bunch of teens beating the shit out of people with elemental magic and shit. AND that the dude who did the choreography for DBZ's fights was one of the guys who jump-started the series when it first started.
Am I a dumbass for not having figured out until now that the common colors for Precure are Pink, Blue, Yellow, then Purple?
Because I feel like I should've known this earlier had I not entered the series through Smile.
I have the same suspicious, but with /a/ as a whole.
Sometimes I think some people just see an episode at 8x speed just to shitpost as fast as possible, now more than ever because a guy keeps making those fast forward webms.
Japanese voice acting is a whole lot more professional then whoever they dig up to dub anime in general. That and a lot is always lost in translation.
If anything it probably looks like the old She-Ra cartoons did, obviously aimed at little girls but still able to be appreciated for the campy fun. PC actually manages to have a compelling plot once in a blue moon, too.
Ellen is obviously a purple, and Honoka is a blue.
Because color order.
That'd be about as wrong as saying Red, Blue, Yellow then Green is not standard player order in games.
That would be dumb.
There is everything wrong with it, but I know you're just kidding. For comparison, any sports fan would treat you like a retard and a fake fan if you only watched the first and last five minutes of an important game, or tried to fast forward through it.
Isn't not really that unbelievable, people tend to forget that celebrities are real people too.
I met a (local third world) actress once, it was pretty casual and she was who came to me.
protip: don't be a fat nerd
Better to do another less time demanding hobby, because I doubt that's enjoyable.
The real problem comes when people start arguing as if they knew what they are talking about, when they have seen nothing.
Xros Wars finished it's tv run this past summer. I don't think they have any plans to dub Hunters and will move onto Tri and possibly splice all 6 movies together to make a 90 minute film with terrible early 2000s music.
>every moment is equally important
It isn't. Some parts are less informative so you can skip/fastforward them and some aren't. Don't worry I slow it down when something interesting is happening.
Don't worry I still enjoy it if that show is enjoyable.
¿Como se supone que deba traducir esto? ¿Destello Propagación?
[Spoiler]btw, Peace doesn't cry using Peace Thunder[/Spoiler]
>tfw you skip the stock footage/openings/endings after the 6th episode
I save up to 5 mins per episode, watching a lot of precure episodes in a row can be a little heavy.
(Except with Full Throttle GoGo!, that shit is god tier)
A-am I a casual /pc/?
Listen baka, if you don't enjoy it, then don't watch it. It's absurd to think that you would not want to enjoy watching an episode of anime, your hobby that you chose completely of your own free will, of a show you want to see out of thousands of possible options, in time that you have devoted specifically to watching and enjoying yourself, and decide to skip through it. There are endless other options. Maybe if you find yourself bored or wanting to skip stuff, then use your time more productively elsewhere.
Force your way into the livestream on Saturday/Sunday depending on your time zone and live post. Then if you don't know Japanese, watch again when subs come out and bring up exactly the same conversations again.

God, goosebumps, and really not the good kind. No matter what my brain thinks, my body tried to reject this a few times there. I think I even wretched once.
And it really doesn't make it look good. Admittedly this certainly isn't worse than any commercially made dub, sadly.
Jesus, they took all the air out of her. That's just sad.
She sounds every bit as old as the original, but sure.
Ow ow ow ow.
Yuri mai waifu.
Do not steal.
The edit is honestly not so bad in itself, apart from being worst the original.
I'm more fearful about how much has her character been changed, they wouldn't make her full positive and energetic, right?
Momoka steals your waifu every other day.
I don't know if it's a psychological effect, but knowing they aren't payed actresses while being on the level of a "pro" dub and in some cases even better is what makes it look good.
Who doesn't? I'd pay Momoka to fuck my waifu.
Could be. You certainly have to admire the dedication. There are technical details, though, like if it's obvious that they're talking outside a comfortable voice register for them, it's pretty bad; It just sounds fake and hollow, but it's also that you lose all the emotional expression that comes with being able to modulate your tone to places where it does sound unusual or forced.
They're doing 40 episodes out of the original 48, split across two seasons.
Also I never understood why they don't use young girls to voice characters. I understand that takes time to search for them, but I feel like it would be a step up from the same pool of women in their mid 20's to early 50's
I think it's more that it's difficult to find actors who are young, serious and actually trained who ALSO want to do a big cartoon. It's more what it would take to convince someone like that to come aboard, and whether a shop like this has the resources for that.
I never kept tabs on this shit aside from the announcement it was even a thing. Plus I just assumed that she was done doing anime seeing as she's only had maybe 3-4 roles in the past three years that weren't video games (Maka in Soul Eater Not, Rise in P4: The Animation, and Digimon)
Because Aikatsu took them.
>Laura Bailey voicing Pink
Eh, not too bad
>Jimmy Neutron as Candy
I don't know how I feel about this, but I'm cautious to say the least.
>Some dude, who is voicing BOTH Wolfrun and Akaoni at the same time.
WELP. It's not like I wanted that episode where Miyuki gets turned into a giant robot anyway.
>Jimmy Neutron as Candy
Oh god, I don't know what to think
>Some dude is voicing both Wolfrun and Akaoni at the same time
Keith Silverstein has some decent range. He did a great accent for Speedwagon in JJBA, but the only other role of his I can name off the top of my head Zen in Persona Q which was alright
>Glitter Force Debuts the same day as the new Star Wars
>On a medium that requires discussion and word-of-mouth as advertisement
Saban are you just dense or is this some kind of mental condition?
>Saban are you just dense or is this some kind of mental condition?
Hold up. First of all, they're making a 4kids-tier english dub of a show on Netflix, not advertising it, and then also getting a terrible idol group nobody has heard of together to try and promote it.
You better believe they went full retard.
Yeah but releasing it on Netflix the same day as STAR WARS?!
The rest is forgivable, I can understand making those mistakes if you're working on a children's show on a shoestring budget. If you just want to make your returns back in name only, what else could you expect?
But fucking up the release day to coincide with something that has been known for almost a year? Something that will consume all the airwaves, social media networks, advertising mediums, and even Netflix itself?
It's like they have a little drinking bird working on the project.
And for what? So the show can fail and they can try to copyright-lawyer bigger and more successful Magical Girl franchises? That's about all they can do to get returns on this is to call in the lawyers to sue distributors of Madoka.
>Saban are you just dense or is this some kind of mental condition?
They're just acting in a way that's thematically in keeping with Smile.
Hrm. I get where you're coming from, that going head-to-head with Star Wars is an awful idea, and certainly for any scif-themed movie/show/whatever, particularly one that's fully dependent on hype, I can see why that would be total marketing suicide.
But do you really think that release is going to make it impossible for anything else in show business to function or get any kind of press? Sure, it's going to eat up the big headlines but it's hard to imagine this shitty dub's release to be sharing any kind of bandwidth with Star Wars. At all. Shitty little stories will still come out that day, and this is just another one of them, isn't it?
>Why would Star Wars matter if the demographics for both don't collide?
Because the demographics for both DO collide. Star Wars is something everyone is going to watch.
For instance, Parents who would find kids shows on netflix, and kids who would be watching GF.
This isn't even counting the denial-of-service that will occur on every possible communication medium. On Friday, no one is going to be talking about GF, everyone is going to be talking about Star Wars. No forum, facebook post, review site anywhere is going to seriously make a post saying "So I just watched the new GLITTER FORCE!" when there are reviewers camping outside of theatres right now.
GF will be like a leaf in a stream.
Come Friday, WE will probably be talking more about Star Wars than Glitter Force.
I doubt it. I'm going to guess that exercising whatever option they took to get its English rights was cheap. Does anyone know whether they'd be getting their cash up front from Netflix, or whether it's an advance + royalties, or whatever?
It's hard to know how it'll go over with little white girls. If it actually gets seen, they might remember it in ten years but I doubt it'll be the new hotness in pre-k.
Us? We didn't decide shit.
The U.S.? Yes, this is just another step in supporting the fetishization of east Asia for Americans. They should be spending their efforts on what actually makes America great and promoting that with their kids.
>But do you really think that release is going to make it impossible for anything else in show business to function or get any kind of press?
Because I feel this is exactly what is going to happen.
This happens with every gigantic movie release. Anything, no matter the genre, is basically ignored because new-big-thing is here.
Same thing happens in video games. Doesn't matter the genre; if your game released alongside the new CoD or Halo, it's dead in the water.
Now here, we have Glitter Force, something that requires word-of-mouth and investment from a sizable portion of people in order to spread around. Something people might watch on a boring day just because it's new and on netflix.
Now they don't have the boring day anymore. All they have is the 'new and on netflix' part.
>I doubt it. I'm going to guess that exercising whatever option they took to get its English rights was cheap. Does anyone know whether they'd be getting their cash up front from Netflix, or whether it's an advance + royalties, or whatever?
My guess is going to be that the royalties will primarily come from deploying the lawyer bullies on other magical girl shows that have been localized but made after Smile Precure.
That's how they made their money on PR when it got into one-of-many slumps.
Netlix is a long tail game. It doesn't matter what the first day publicity or numbers are since once the show is in there it will stay for years. Saban already made bank when they put it on Netflix, so they won't lose out. It's not like on tv where ratings matter. As long as someone is watching it at all, across at least a year, then they don't have to worry about Star Wars.
Star Wars and Glitter Force don't even have anything to do with each other. Besides, girl shows have found a profitable market on Netflix and I'm sure Glitter Force will do fairly well. Will it do as good as it would've if it aired on Disney XD or something? Probably not, but it'll more than likely do as well as it can on Netflix.
While it MIGHT help get money for Toei, there's also the possibility of shitposters attracted by the dub coming here.
I suppose the possibility is unlikely, but that's probably the reason.
>Same thing happens in video games. Doesn't matter the genre; if your game released alongside the new CoD or Halo, it's dead in the water.
I agree, L.A. Noire and Binding of Isaac Rebirth, and Yo-Kai watch, all gigantic flops.
But that's beside the point, you seem to be massively overestimating star wars, to the point that you think literally everyone everywhere will be doing nothing but watching it, and that demographics or people who don't care that much or are going to do things other than talk about it on release day don't exist. Is the marketing campaign that effective?
>you seem to be massively overestimating star wars
That was my impression as well. My first guess would've been that it wouldn't matter at all. And I genuinely wonder whether Star Wars is as culturally significant in the larger world as its fanboys seem to think it is.
>come to discuss PreCure
>instead discuss Star Wars
I imagine that anon is a male twentysomething, the target audience of star wars, and probably mostly hangs out and talks with other people who are roughly his age and demographic, all of whom are really interested in star wars, so he gets the false impression that since everyone he knows is super hyped for star wars, everyone everywhere must be excited about it. There's probably a term for this effect.
How would you dress up if you knew they were coming?
Star Wars is very important in greater society, but like someone said Netflix is for the long game. Glitter Force won't fail or falter if nobody watches it day one. Hell, I bet we're the only ones who'll be watching it (besides tumblr and stuff). New fans won't come in for a while yet.
I have literally never watched Star Wars so I have no idea.
My prettiest dress, of course
But that's true. Ellen is blue and Nagisa isn't pink.
>Skipping OPs, EDs, and stock footage
No but it makes you a dumbass.
No it doesn't. That fandub isn't half as good as that trailer.
PreCures be gay, man.
I'm seeing segments of normally anime and game radio being devoted to seiyuu talking about Star Wars so it must be a bit of a thing I guess.
Also Disney paid four fucking billion burgerbucks for it.
The latest episode was pretty good, I guess.
But I can't say I really care what's going to happen to them.
Maho Girls better come soon, and better be good.
If it's not, I'm going to complain about it.
Hey, you know those girls who you meet who are like, "Oh, no, I've never actually seen Star Wars!"? Well they totally exist, and there are MILLIONS of them. As well as men who didn't care about scifi at all, or grew up at a time when it wasn't the go-to action movie, or aren't part of a nerdy fandom. There are many, many, many people for whom this premiere isn't the biggest deal in the world at all.
Those shows you're watching, even if you don't think the key demographic of the original product is a traditional Star Wars fan, think about who the hosts, directors and writers of those shows are.
They're not little girls.
>please i beg on floor
That's a good boy. Beg on the floor nicely and maybe Mana will give you a taste of her leaks.
>implying Rina Hidaka is not a little girl
I will not have your lies and slander.
But I was just trying to answer whether Star Wars is a big deal outside of like, New York Comic Con. Being one of the biggest movie and entertainment franchises in the world period it kind of is. Its relevance to little girls is something better qualified people can debate.
I for one didn't think little girls watch a lot of Netflix to start with.
>I for one didn't think little girls watch a lot of Netflix to start with.
From what I hear from
concernedparents, proper parental controls on Netflix is a bit of a concern (they're kind of shit). So in that in-between age where they can operate a TV ably and all the content they're being exposed to isn't tightly controlled, and the teen years where parents probably won't care anymore is this dead zone, particularly that young primary school bracket, where it's uncertain whether you can really count on full access. Yet.
Mana is very dominant, but despite this scene, she's not really the "female prince" type I like.
>My guess is going to be that the royalties will primarily come from deploying the lawyer bullies on other magical girl shows that have been localized but made after Smile Precure.
That's not how it works dummy
>/pc/ is actually denying that everyone and their mom from the most normal normalfag to the biggest manchildren will not be watched Star Wars this Friday
C'mon son. Even people who have never watched a single Star Wars movie in their lives because it's "nerd shit" or something like that will be watching it because Star Wars is a fucking worldwide sensation. Who the fuck cares if some basement dwellet from /pc/ will not go watch it, for every one that doesn't go there will be millions that will. 10 years on people will not be saying DARTH VADER IS LUKE'S FATHER but instead will say the identity of the super edgelord that is the movie's villain.
I know some of you guys try to avoid the rest of the world by staying only in /pc/ but goddamn son. You people are completely ignorant of how the real world works.
>There are people who don't know the basic functions of VoD
>Year of our Lord 2015
Holy shit please tell me you're some kind of former Luddite or something, or at the very least live in a country where such services have not proliferated
You have to earn that. Start by kissing Mana's boots and maybe she'll take them off and let you smell her feet.
Mana's leaks are high quality. Her urine is the nectar of the gods.
The debate here isn't Star Wars popularity, but rather whether or not it'll destroy GF's chances in the States.
For starters, even beginning to compare something like Star Wars to something so obscure is already fucking dumb. However since GF is on Netflix, you don't need to tune it at a certain time once a week. You can watch the first 20 episodes whenever the fuck you want so it's no big deal if you don't watch it day one
I don't use netflix. I thought it released on a weekly schedule.
That luddite country I live in is America where my connection is so shit that I cannot watch netflix AND browse the internet
It's not a matter of whether or not you use it, but at the very least understanding the simple concept of "You can watch it whenever".
I don't use it either (though I do have an Amazon Prime membership, but mostly for their deals. The streaming coming with it is inconsequential)
If it released weekly then Netflix would have probably tanked years ago
Because Twilight was one hundred times better than Towa
>If it released weekly then Netflix would have probably tanked years ago
I knew VOD existed for shows that had been on cable since forever.
But I didn't know they also did that for new shows. I thought for new shows they tried to keep them lined up week after week.
In the early days of VOD the did do that in order to keep users steady, but after Netflix struck gold with the "binge model" (putting every episode of a season up at once) everyone else hopped on board
To think it took this long for Saban to localize this despite them having the rights for what appears to be years.
I want to think it was because it was originally planned for the Vortexx cartoon block, but the CW put the nail in that coffin so they suffered a setback. Aside from Laura Bailey the cast is largely what I expected, which is to say still terrible
Hey, little sis. When's the adaptation crossover?
YEARS and years.
Here's the curious thing though, For a while Disney held the rights to it. They held the rights the same time they were producing PR seasons.
Same with Kamen Rider
It's why I think there's an actual marketing/target demographic reason that they decided not to attempt serious localization (Dragon Knight is a good start, but they basically shelved it in an asshole-of-the-morning time slot).
It's why I think the reason they haven't tried to do anything is more related to the fact that they think it wouldn't be very popular due to market research. I'm sure if Disney thought it would go somewhere, they would have given it front and center stage on their network.
Well, at least I'm not gonna watch it that day.
While I like SW, I'm wasn't really into this new movie since it was announced a year ago, and I've felt very indifferent towards it. Plus, all this oversaturation makes me even more indifferent.
I know I'm gonna have fun when I'll see it, but for the moment, I'm actually more excited for Akuma in Tekken 7. And see how bad Glitter Force is gonna be.
>Miyuki pops in
>She sounds like her lines were recorded inside of a pringles can
PUT SOME FUCKING EMOTION INTO IT IF YOU'RE NOT GONNA USE ACTUAL RECORDING EQUIPMENT
1-hour drawing incoming.
I haven't go through the thread yet, but I can take a guess that Glitter Force happened. But don't lose heart /pc/, today's theme of Mode Elegant will make you feel strong, kind and beautiful again like a princess like little
She got her teeth fixed and that picture is like 3 years old I think.
This is what she looks like now.
