Following Cure Peace and Cure Happy, the retailers in Japan will start accepting pre-orders for Bandai's S.H. Figuarts Cure Beauty, the third entry from one of the most successful PreCure TV anime series Smile PreCure! at 4:00 pm on today July 25. Smile PreCure! was 9th installment of Toei Animation's long-running PreCure series and aired between February 5th, 2012 and January 27th, 2013.
14-year-old Cure Beauty/Reika Aoki is the spiritual leader of the Smile team. She is always calm, humble, and the most reliable character. Beauty/Reika was voiced by 42-year-old voice actress Chinami Nishimura who also played Dark Dream in the 2007 film Yes! Precure 5: Great Miraculous Adventure in the Mirror Kingdom!. In a recent PreCure character popularity vote which was taken at Warner Mycal Cinema in Kanagawa, Cure Beauty took a 8th place, following Cure Happy (4th) and
Cure Peace (5th).
The 130mm tall S.H. Figuarts Cure Beauty which comes with an ice sword she used in the series a few times
is scheduled to be released in Japan in December. The suggested retail price is 4,410 yen (about US$ 44).
This must be the best Christmas gift for the PreCure fan!
