After purifying the Crab Selfish at the top of Clover Tower, Cure Heart extends an offer of alliance to Cure Sword, which she refuses. As mentioned earlier, Doki Doki’s second episode takes special care to examine the immediate consequences of becoming a PreCure (and in the context of the genre, a magical girl in general).
Like Rikka (and most people in general), being introduced to such a farfetched circumstance is likely to result in disbelief, and as the childhood friend, Rin has to fare that line of her belief in the rules of reality and trust in her best friend, and her eventual answer to the call to become a PreCure arises out of necessity to protect her useless and clumsy friend. PreCure foregoes this tension altogether by turning the closest friend into a PreCure, and Rikka’s civilian involvement highlights the primary message in the episode, that the struggle between the Trump Kingdom and the Selflish is a war that affects everyone that gets involved. That threat makes Rikka’s involvement with Cure Heart in the last battle all the more interesting. The relationship between the swallow and the Happy Prince is a two-way street between the two characters, and while Doki Doki examines the Prince’s side of the tale, through which his selfless acts come at the expense of losing his livelihood, drawing the help of a meager swallow. What Rikka doesn’t tell Mana, despite all of this, is that the swallow eventually dies in the story, and that the Happy Prince, after giving out every lavish decoration that made up his being, was eventually deemed unfit for a statue in the town, and was eventually melted away for scraps, except for its leaden heart. How this fits into the grand scheme of a four-cure team of Heart, Diamond, Rosetta, and Sword, is a fantastic concept to take note as the series progresses when the other cures join in.
It’s a pretty awesome one-sided relationship going on, at least as far as alliances go.
As for anyone else blogging DokiDoki episodically, the ones I know so far are Metanorn, Desu Ex Machina, and Open Your Mind. I know I mentioned this before, but I really wish that the Rikka’s induction into the ranks of the Precure was delayed in order to further explore the dynamic between the two friends when they are in different worlds. I’m also very curious as to what the relationship will be like between the characters as well, and what tensions will arise as a result of their incorporation into the Doki Doki group.
These concepts certainly *feel* new, and I think that’s the main thing to take away from the franchise whenever a series is viewed.
Actually when you mentioned the tension between the magical girl world and the real world with Cardcaptor Sakura, my first thought wasn’t really Tomoyo but Meiling. You didn’t talk about Cure Sword, and rightly so, but do you think the reason she refuses help is because she views the current situation as her fault? As far as Cure Sword is concerned, I agree with you with regards to Cure Sword shouldering her own burdens. With Miyuki’s power-up episode in the bag, we can finally see where her episode fits with the others. Most of the meat of the show comes from the story of Miyuki’s past, which hits a number of great points in its inclusion. Miyuki’s younger self was adorably depicted, but still managed to remain more complex than just a cute kid doing cute things (a la episode 38). That said, the charm given to Miyuki by her grandma, Tae,  is what allows her to break out of her shell; however, there’s a very strange folklore mythology permeating in this episode that’s unlike the usual magic bestowed upon PreCure that we’re used to. This is a magical girl show, but there’s an extra layer of magic that’s relatively unknown to the girls, and the mysterious charm only adds to the effectiveness of this episode as well as episode 27, which also involves Tae and the youkai that protect her house. Regardless of how reliable Miyuki’s story is (having recalled a story from her formative childhood years), the story is still there, and it’s a wonderfully-told one at that, and it really brings out a different side to Smile’s main character. With this cycle of episodes drawing to a close, there exists a finality in every story involved, such that each of these girls have made the final stride necessary to become complete individuals (at least, within the context of their stage of development).
We could close the books on this show after this cycle because it’s as if there’s nothing else that could stop these girls from reaching their happy ending. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.
Precure Family Reminder!Sorry for all the sudden posts!Just sending a reminder that there are still many great characters open for the Precure Family!
The reaction to becoming a PreCure is explored beyond a typical self-narration from the main character (a cornerstone to the structure of series during the Futari wa period) and is incorporated into the plot of the episode itself.
Too often in previous series, the girls who transform into PreCure immediately acclimate to their new superhero lifestyle without nary a change to their civilian lives. Rikka is no different with regards to Mana’s clumsiness, but in a wonderfully novel approach, she answers the call to help Mana without having to become a PreCure. Not only is Rikka concerned with Mana’s unspoken involvement with her new PreCure duties, but Mana’s family as well. Civilians are rarely involved in a monster fight, but under special circumstances, the weight of their decision to aid the PreCure is considerable and holds merit due to the novelty of its occurrence.
Mana’s insistence to help everyone as a result of her stature and role as the student council president is a trying one, and with the added role of becoming Cure Heart, Rikka’s role as the swallow arises out of meaningful necessity.


Rikka likely has her own issues that she needs to sort out, but by answering the call and becoming Cure Diamond, she essentailly follows suit (pun totally intended) with Mana’s selflessness and buys into her charitable philosophy.
It would make a lot of sense for them to take out the most competent character the franchise has seen thus far (I mean, she *is* smart and athletic as well as outgoing, honest, and friendly, plus she’s the StuCo president on top of all that). I can see Rikka’s heart getting corrupted and turning to the dark side and having Mana snap her out of it. I mean, I can’t think of a more competent *character* in PreCure history, so to have what looks to be a nigh unstoppable force completely dominated?
Though there have been posts out there that do talk about the show, even though it may not be on a week-by-week basis.
That said, I’m still liking where this show is going especially with the connection to The Happy Prince.
That doesn’t fit into the best friend dynamic, but they did have an episode where they really focused on whether or not she could contribute to capturing the Clow cards despite her lack of any magical powers whatsoever. There definitely is a sort of tension in her arc because of her civilian status, but she’s still a capable fighter compared to the average human.
Like… we all know the immediate Precure-civilian inequality will be, at least at the time, balanced next episode (thank you, episode titles).
I feel that potentially, her primary concern is to not get others involved, because she doesn’t want to see anyone else suffer.
This particular cycle was really well-done, given the formulaic constraints that were issued for the sake of further driving the plot.
The girl in the mirror (tagged on pixiv as Smile-chan) adds to that mystique, but in this case, there’s a warmness through which she aided Miyuki. Not only does she love reading stories and fairy tales, but she’s also a fairly proficient storyteller herself. The connection that she made with her friends was strengthened by the performer-audience dynamic formed during the episode, and it’s through her memories that the important things have become clear after a lifetime of searching for that happiness.
They come to realizations that many adults don’t ever get until the later years, and it’s absolutely necessary for the girls to have them as part of their culminating strength as PreCure.
It tells me that Smile Precure is going to the happy ending, overcoming the biggest enemy, Pierot. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud EXERCITATION ULLAMCO laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.
Everyone is welcome!Many adorable mascots are still available as are Splash Star’s Michiru and Kaoru! Also many characters of royalty are open! Any questions about these, the Precure Family or any other subjects really are always welcome in the ask box or through fanmail!
In Yes 5, Nozomi’s immediately recruits her childhood friend, Rin, to become a Pretty Cure and help her restore the SweetsKingdom by collecting pinkys and defeating Nightmare. This establishes a sort of tension that exists within the double-life led by a magical girl, seen in other shows outside of PreCure, such as Cardcaptor Sakura and the Sailor Moon anime.
Mana’s father brings up a point that Mana is unable to disclose what exactly she is involved in, but she simply cannot be ignored by those closest to her. What made Rikka’s involvement particularly fascinating are the parallels between the Rikka and Mana’s relationship and the story of the Happy Prince (an actual fairy tale written by Oscar Wilde), which run deeper than the concept of selflessness and interdependence that Rikka tries to explain to her friend. This is possibly for the better, but the tension between Diamond’s own needs and that of Mana and the others can come at great cost. If the relationship between Rikka and Mana is that of the swallow and the prince, then the current situation of Mana being Cure Heart alone and Rikka staying civilian cannot simply last.
We’re only two episodes into Doki Doki, I have a great feeling that this show is being given a careful treatment as far as storytelling goes; for better or for worse, this could be the most intense PreCure story yet. So making her the villain’spawn or just capturing her (after the team was built of course) would be an amazing turn.
Alternatively, as far as rescue arcs are concerned, I like the idea of the lead cure getting captured and having her friends rescue her, as you said. Rikka has absolutely *no* combat experience whatsoever, and she’s not athletic to any extent either, so watching her try to help Heart despite her position of weakness makes for a good source of tension. I used Tomoyo as an example here because of contrast between the degree of her involvement compared to Naru, who actively tried to avoid Usagi’s mysterious lifestyle (and got caught in a lot of stuff in the anime and live-action). You mentioned how it gives an idea of Rikka’s backstory, but it could mean a lot of sacrifice in the future, if taken further, too. Having Rikka switch sides (unwillingly or not) would be an interesting means to get a reaction from Mana, as you said, because she would probably shoulder a lot of the responsibility after realizing how much Rikka has suffered for Mana’s sake.


Each girl had to bring out their inner-power in different ways, and Miyuki’s x-factor were not as urgent as Nao or Reika’s, but was probably as personally meaningful as Yayoi’s. There’s a supernatural element with the mirror and the mysterious girl that helps Miyuki break out of her shell.
There’s a strange connection between the PreCure and Tae, but the fact that it remains unknown makes the connection all the more meaningful and interesting. There’s wonder in a good story, whether it is read or written, and this other half completes Miyuki’s fascination with the medium. Smile Precure gave a chance to be into Precure series which I actually rediculed in the past when I was told by one of my friends that Precure was a really good anime series.
Such as Queen, Flora, Aprodite and Prince Kanata to name some examples~There’s also still many villain characters and lots of other still free! Mana is told by the Trump Kingdom fairies to keep her PreCure identity a secret from Rikka, but when a Selfish attacks the school the next morning, she decides to transform into Cure Heart in Rikka’s presence, and asks for her help in purifying the Selfish. Combined with the fact that the second girl is often the closest friend to the main character, there is little to no opportunity to show any sort of dynamic involving the lead cure and her best friend before the second cure awakens.
Like Doki Doki, Rin’s initial reaction to Nozomi’s revelation is utter disbelief, and playing off of her snarky “straight man” personality, the exchange is played for laughs at the beginning of the show. Both shows stretch the gamut of roles that the best friend plays in the magical girl’s life; where Tomoyo is immediately involved with Sakura’s adventures through her resourcefulness in the former series, where Naru remains distant and removed from Usagi’s battle, but nonetheless finds herself unintentionally involved with countless mysterious occurrences in the latter. From a distance, all they can do is provide support, but due to the message of the episode, there’s a real threat to their safety that may or may not be addressed later on. They have to join forces as equals, and help each other by making up for each other’s shortfalls. Either of the two would make a captivating midseries arc, and would be the coolest thing ever. Plus, I’ve found that commenting on sites with Disqus drives traffic back to my site.
Of course the audience knows that she’s going to pull through somehow, but I liked that she did get caught and got frozen as well after managing to push the button.
Two people who try taking on burdens alone, and the only difference is that Mana’s willing to accept help. In fact, Mana would probably fault herself for getting Rikka into this mess since she herself initially recruited Rikka despite knowing the consequences. In the meantime, Smile PreCure is about to get into its highly anticipated final arc, and we finally say goodbye to this final cycle of spotlight episodes. There’s a storytelling element that the Miyuki in the present shows off which is really interesting, too. This episode essentially extends this concept to the other facets of her life, which in this case, primarily involved her backstory.
Even after Nozomi introduces her to the mascot character Coco, Rin has a difficult time of making sense out of it all. As Cure Diamond, we can potentially see a very intense partnership that develops between her and Cure Heart. And there’s the added benefit of Disqus possibly promoting your blog and the potential for monetary kickback.
It provides an opportunity to examine both characters’ sides in this potentially harmful relationship.
In the end, the only real line between selfishness and selflessness, is who are you doing it for? The hard part about character spotlight episodes is arbitrarily comparing all of them once the cycle is over. There was a very believable tension in Miyuki’s inability to speak with other people, and it hit home for a number of people who have had similar childhoods.
Bad End PreCure!!” My guess is that they will face one final test before facing Pierrot, and it will come in the form of their dark counterparts, in the same tradition as the Mirage PreCure from Heartcatch and the Dark Pretty Cure 5 from Yes 5. This is my favourite magical girl trope, so I’ll definitely be writing a separate post on this before the episode airs, so look out for it.
