Following the registration of its title in the end of September, Toei Animation today opened a teaser site for the next 15th PreCure TV series titled Hugtto! PreCure for a Spring 2018 premiere. It is set to be aired after the ongoing 14th series Kirakira PreCure a la Mode. The tagline is written as: "You can do anything! You can be anything! Embrace a shining future!"
If it follows its pattern, the girls from the 15th series are also expected to appear in the next crossover film PreCure Super Stars! to be released on March 17, 2018, alongside those from the two recent series.
Aftert hitting its bottom with the 12th series Go! Princess PreCure (2015-2016), the 14-year-old PreCure
franchise's commercial power has been increased again. According to Bandai Namco's financial report for
its toy/hobby section, the yearly merchandise sales of the 13th series Maho Girls PreCure! (2016-2017) was
11.1 percent up from Princess PreCure. Also as reported, "Eiga Kirakira PreCure a la Mode: Paritto! Omoide
no Mille-feuille" (Kirakira PreCure a la Mode The Movie: Paris and The Memorable Mille-feuille), the feature
film based on the ongoing series became the top-grossing film in its opening weekend of October 28-29, and
is on the way to be one of the most successful films of the franchise. Let's hope more growing success for the
PreCure franchise in future.
