i'm going to attempt to get into the precure franchise. perhaps franchise is the wrong term, as i'm only interested in watching a select few seasons, but nonetheless i am interested in watching the series. i have watched some of Futari wa Pretty Cure and Heartcatch Precure! but only have at surface level at less than ten episodes of each.
based on immediate visual appeal, previous knowledge of the season, and what seemed popular during/now according to fans of series i have constructed a list of seasons i'm interested in watching from most interested to least.

1. Heartcatch! Precure
2. Futari wa Pretty Cure/Max Heart/Splash Star
3. Smile Precure!
4. Kirakirea Precure ☆ a-la Mode

after i watch these shows i'm probably going to watch ojamajo doremi or finally close the book on cardcaptor sakura and watch the final ten episodes, something i didn't want to end for a long time. what are your thoughts?

Each season gets called a masterpiece or absolute garbage or everything in between by fans every day so you might want to take anything you've heard with a grain of salt and watch whatever you think looks cuter
If you ask me mahoutsukai is the cutest and also the most fun.

No.441917

haha, so it's a lot like the toei tokusatsu hero shows in that regard. in that case i'm 90% sure i'll be starting with heartcatch as i'm a big fan of its style and abundant use of sakuga thanks to that. maybe i'll give mahou tsukai a try after my list if i don't burn out. i'm a little bit wary of the magic-user genre for kids shows after watching kamen rider wizard.

I began an almost identical journey last year. Futari wa was good and I'm glad it was my first. I started watching Hugtto afterward since it was airing, and that was also a good decision. It might be hard to catch up on since it's almost finished, but it had several very strong episodes and it was nice to watch with the rest of the world. Coincidentally, Hugtto was directed by Junichi Satou who handled Ojamajo Doremi. I chose Gopri after that because it was directed by the episode director of my favorite Hugtto episodes, but outside of some occasional standout animation it hasn't been as impressive.

Ojamajo has been charming. I was a bit underwhelmed with S1 relative to the rabid adoration it receives from fans, but I've genuinely enjoyed S2 and am looking forward to the rest. I don't see any reason to wait to watch it, there's no parallel to Precure.

i'm glad to hear your journey has been fruitful brother. i also enjoyed what i watched of futari wa, probably for the same reason i enjoyed heartcatch as well; the strong dynamic between the two lead heroines.

as for waiting on ojamajo, it is another show where i gave a couple of episodes a watch and enjoyed but never finished. for the reason that these shows a very big commitment i'm sticking to one show at a time, though i'm having a hard time keeping up with shows this season as it is (mob psycho, kemofure2, kemikusa).

at the moment my heart is telling me to watch heartcatch, so i am watching that. in fact, i just finished the first episode and it was exactly what i was looking for, nothing i have to invest too much focus on while still retaining what is going on and am able to a little work on the side as i watch it. i recently picked up my japanese studies once again this year so it's really nice to be able to understand the show verbally.

you may see a japanese-language thread from me in the near future depending on how i am feeling.

This is going to be a very long post.

Okay, I started watching a while ago but I only got through Futari wa and Max Heart so far. I was watching Hugtto for the first 6 episodes but then I forgot to watch more and I kept telling myself I would catch up but before I knew it, it was over. So I guess that's on hold for a much longer time now.

Futari wa was pretty fun, it's kinda thematically strong, in the beginning at least. I liked how there was duality between the two leads and they struggled to get along with each other at first. Anyway they have a pretty strong synergy I guess you could say. You said you only watched the first ten episodes though, right? Yeah the first ten episodes is pretty much 95% of their relationship development, don't go into the rest of the show thinking it's going to be like that.
The fights were pretty good too, the show does climaxes well at the very least. I honestly did get very tired of it around the 3/4 mark, the show is kinda split in half by two arcs, and the second arc just is not as interesting and gets stale fast. Hence why it took me like a year and a half to get through it. And there was a new character that was annoying as hell. But a the same time the guardian of the stones, Wisdom, (you should have seen him by epsiode 10) sticks around and he's pretty funny and cool.

Continuing on…
Max Heart was kinda bad. It was a complete rehash of the Futari wa but even more tiring. Unlike Futari wa the villains stay the same and don't get defeated, the ENTIRE time. The individual plots at worst are a straight up copy of something from Futari wa, or don't expand much on anything. The worst part is the absolute lack of a sense of progression whatsoever. You could honestly skip about 40 of the 49 episodes and not miss a single thing of any note. I know it's not a series you should be watching for the plot, but it's not my fault when they pretend it is. God it's frustrating me just thinking about it. It has its moments though, which keep you going. Like I said for Futari wa, it does climaxes well and though there is very few you can't help but feel hype from them. The nice thing about Max Heart compared to Futai wa at least, is there's a bit more variety in attacks, and the new attacks are pretty cool in my opinion. It's still really nowhere near a good variety for 50 episodes of fights, but eh, it was better than Futari Wa where there were only 2, basically 1.

No.442016

AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH FUCK I ACCIDENTLY DELETED THE ENTIRE LAST HALF OF THE ENTIRE THING
it was a lot too, more than both the past two posts.
I'll try to summarize but basically the important thing was I said I wouldn't really recommend Max Heart right after Futari wa unless you end up really liking Nagisa because Honoka is basically a side character.

Welp, the only part that didn't get deleted was this last part that was supposed to go in a fourth post.
"Right now I'm on like epsiode 15 of Splash Star, still a bit of a copy of Futari wa, but it's a lot more polished I guess. The different settings and characters help I guess. If I remember I'll tell you how it was when I'm done.
Sorry for writing so much…"

although the fight scenes are a little underwhelming, the arcs are a whole lot more interesting and touching than their kamen rider counter-parts. perhaps because it is anime as well the humor has better delivery. as for overall story so far i can't say but i am enjoying how easy it is to watch.

Hm no I don't think so. If I pirate it then they won't get any money but this way netflix helps pay for new precure stuff. My faves so far are kelsey and lily!

It must be on Crunchy with a sub. Or check out nyaa and torrent it for free and buy cds and figures to support Precure more directly.

By watching it on Netflix you're giving Netflix a reason to butcher even more anime. What you're watching is not the real Smile Precure. They changed all of the names, skipped some episodes, removed most of the references to Japanese culture, and added a bunch of outdated Western memes that no one finds funny anymore. It's just as bad as those old 4kids dubs.

no, people can only watch what I want them to watch. Or rather they shouldn't want to watch what I don't want them to want to watch.

on the topic of glitter force though, it's actually pretty popular with its targeted american demographic. though i don't think numbers were significant enough to continue producing more dubbed content; though it is clear that anime is a very popular medium on netflix in general. it is a good thing as it acts as a gateway anime, creating more epic! anime-loving girls in the future and giving popularity back to japan from the corean menace, aka the new hotness among teens and women in their early-20s
