(dokidoki supposedly sucks, but i'll probably watch anyways for completeness)


I'll never understand why so many think this though. Personally, I think its one of the more enjoyable ones of the series. But you'll form your own opinion when you watch it.

probably because the series focus more on the main character, and less on the other precures
that seemed the main complaint, anyways.

i can't comment on the show itself, but the ending theme is gorgeous and catchy =]
it helps that one of the VAs is one that i like (Rie, her voice is just adorable...<3 )

I know the main reason why they say it, I just really see it personally. l'm not going to say that they're wrong simply because I didn't see it, but for such a simple flaw to the main reason an entire series sucks seems like such an exaggeration to me.

Wow. I finally come onto the forums for the first time, find a thread about Princess Precure and decide to read it ... and it's three pages of people saying "congrats on being the first to make this thread" and "what is this show?"

So ... has anyone actually been watching Princess Precure? Just me?

I'm a major fan of the magical girl genre, so when I saw there was a magical girl anime that had been running for years, I had to watch it. I started a few years ago, and had 500 episodes, who-knows-how-many movies and a new series starting. Managed to catch up, been watching new Precure series since Doki Doki (which I actually loved, despite criticism.)

Princess Precure is ... not my favourite. But Happiness Charge Precure didn't really capture me into towards the end, either, so I guess it's got time to be loved by me.

it's on my to-watch list. i already watched Splash Star!, Fresh, Yes 5/ Gogo, Heartcatch, Suite, Smile.
i'll watch it after i'm done with the DX movies and dokidoki / happiness charge.
(Smile remains a favorite so far)

Princess Precure is fun so far, don't really have a problem with it. Looking foward to Towa and Kirara antics.

I've never actually heard anyone say they disliked Doki Doki, and it's one of my favorites.

Happiness Charge on the other hand...

I can't choose a favourite, I don't think.
Suite always comes back to me with fond memories, I loved the connection between the main characters.
Loved Smile, that theme song is forever in my head.
Yes! Precure 5 had me hooked on that title song, and I loved the little romances, though I wasn't so sold on Gogo.
I think Heartcatch was too hyped for me, so I didn't get everyone's call of it being "the best".
I think I may go back and watch Futari Wa again, I have some fond memories of that relationship as well.

How can you chooooooooose? Haha.

Happiness Charge didn't capture your heart with happiness?
I wanted to like it. They threw in a lot of things that I wanted. Blue kinda screwed up some between-series mythologies, though. Amongst other problems.

Happiness Charge started out fine and I wanted to like it, but Blue represents almost everything thing that I didn't like about it. I really liked the initial enemy group when they were around and a lot of other stuff but the steam kinda went out after a while.

I'm glad it wasn't just me that Blue didn't sit well with. He was kinda ... ... why was he there? I felt like his "choosing" of the Precure was weird and certainly inconsistent. And why didn't he help any of the other precure? Why didn't he actually usefully help the Happiness Charge girls, either? He was just ... there. With mirrors. And even he didn't seem to know what was actually going on.

It's baffling, then. Pretty Cure is a monster franchise, man.

Either way, I'm excited. Just one more PreCure series to watch, and they're all fun. I love it when the fights suddenly go from standard fare to "OH IT'S ON NOW", too.



This isn't even one of their best, either.




Literally don't understand how peeps here don't know about the PreCures.


I mean, not even knowing 'em through the doujins?......


AK was right, they need to watch more anime.

What hooked me on Heartcatch was the eyes. Just WOW like gemstones

Started on PRincess last week. Not bad so far. Been wondering when the CG would become part of the show. The dance number at the end just seemed to get better every year.

One thing I can't help think when I watch it though

"Disney should totally cash in on this one"

Disney in Japan airs Lovelive!, so it seems like a great fit as well.

Doesn't matter who, *someone* needs to cash in on Precure. We need an official English distribution, already.

Always makes me sad that they've missed such a great opportunity at the "kids" market that people seems to think anime is all about.

(a little story about anime – especially magical girl anime – not necessarily being for kids, I heard they aired Madoka Magica on a free-to-air channel at prime-time here in Australia. Oops.)

I love PreCure! What got me hooked was the first season Black being one of my all time favourites. I've only watched the original season, HeartCatch, Smile, DokiDoki, Happiness Charge and currently Go! Princess. HeartCatch is by far the best season as it is very different from the other seasons and also has a lot more darker tones to it.
