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.

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.

Regarding overall fan reception, Hugtto is No. 2 on any site that allows ratings besides AniDB. It's barely beaten by Gopri there. Heartcatch is No. 1 everywhere.

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.

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.

Reminder that you HAVE to read Milk Hunters after you finish the first series, or at least after you start watching.
It has been inducted into official Precure canon.

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.
