After stealing the show in episode 1 with her outspoken exchange with Miyuki during her self-introduction, we get to take a closer look at the passionately optomistic Akane Hino as she awakens as Cure Sunny.
Akane shows off her volleyball skills in gym class, prompting Miyuki to recruit her and Kise as PreCure. As the first and foremost PreCure in the series, she’s clearly the star of the show, but the responsibility of taking up the most screen-time requires that she doesn’t come off as too much of a dunce, since too much of it can work against her.
That said, Cure Sunny is everything I thought that she would be from what was teased from last week’s episode. Akane’s awakening as Cure Sunny is all about setting off the fire in her that was stoked from the embers of developing friendship, which I will comment later. I understand the concept behind wolfrun, but as far as first impressions go, his appearance in episode 1 left a pretty distinct distaste in my mouth. I disapprove of him to the extent that I’d rather have Cure Sunny as the feature picture for this particular segment. It’s a rumor circulating in fandom that the original cast of five PreCure will be expanded to seven, due a few hints dropped in the show already, as seen above.
Colour-wise, we’re already seeing the relationships between the characters that represent them, with Orange and Yellow hanging out together, and Blue and Green often seen together, relatively speaking.
Smile PreCure has the potential to be the most troperiffic show in the PreCure franchise, very much due to the show’s fairy tale motif, which by itself naturally involves the concept of archetypes and self-realization of unconscious connections with different forms of imagery and narrative. Enter the Power of Friendship, which is the underlying premise of pretty much every PreCure show (and magical girl show, for that matter) in existence.
There’s a wonderful scene as shown in the picture above, where Miyuki tries to cheer Akane up when the latter is practicing her volleyball drills. Genre savvy isn’t limited to simply pointing out the occurrence of genre conventions; it’s also about being capable of playing them in different ways, including straightforwardly. I prefer my characters to be competent too, but so far Miyuki doesn’t really annoy me. I’ve always wanted to watch the Precure franchise ever since the original first aired but I never got an opportunity to since this was before I got high-speed internet.
The original plan was to work my way backwards in time starting from Suite Precure and finishing off with Futari wa Precure and Max Heart. After sampling all of the other Precure series, Cure Black and Cure White are without a doubt the most hardcore of Precure teams at least as far as initial situations are concerned.
Just to make it clear I consider all the Precure to be combinations of sentai and mahou shoujo but Yes 5 is the most sentai-like of them all.
This was the first Precure I ever watched and I fell in love with the music motif used for the naming scheme and design.
After spending time with all of the non-sequel Precure series, I’ve had the opportunity to meet 17 of the 21 Precures proper and had ample time to absorb many of the quirks of the franchise as a whole. I’ve also noticed that my overall preference as far as favorite Precures go tends toward the energetic and enthusiastic ones which in most cases ends up being the lead character.
Sadly, I reached the available episodes for Fresh Precure so I’m watching other Precures while I wait. I guess the same thing is happening to me too since I sometimes feel the urge to dismiss work and watch more Precure. This file contains additional information, probably added from the digital camera or scanner used to create or digitize it. If the file has been modified from its original state, some details may not fully reflect the modified file. Saban Brands has been advertising a new "girls action" TV show in trade magazines under the title of Glitter Force, and the artwork used is from Smile PreCure!, a 2012 TV anime from Toei. Anime News Network notes that Saban Brands applied for the trademark for Glitter Girls in 2013.
She didn’t disappoint, as her debut as a PreCure was filled with bits of fluffy friendship as well as hot-blooded superpower. Akane is confused by the concept of PreCure, but invites Miyuki to volleyball practice to watch her in action. For me, I personally like my main characters to be somewhat competent, but the odd moments of clumsiness here and there help show that as a main character and hero, he or she is still has plenty of room for improvement, even though they’re remarkably strong from the get-go.
I’ve said before that the seiyuu’s overacting is much better than under-acting, which makes Miyuki an interesting case to observe with regards to how much she can balance her clumsiness with her responsibility to lead a band of five girls. As a girl who’s outspoken and passionate about things she cares about, her disposition is appropriately sunny.
What I really love about Sunny’s character is that she really does care about her friends, old and new.
There are a lot of inconsistencies in his abilities as an evil henchman, since he talks pretty big despite not showing just how menacing he tries to be.
All he’s shown to do, power-wise is conjure up the Bad End aura from his book (which by itself is actually really neat in its presentation compared to cop-out negative aura powers like in Fresh and Suite) and summon Akanbe monsters.
There are seven coloured jewels on the Cure tact, as well as seven colours in the rainbow, which seems to be one of the visual tie-ins with regards to the structure and dynamics of the cast. That leaves Red and Purple, which are also chromatically close to each other in the rainbow, allowing for a logical opportunity to introduce the 6th and 7th PreCure later on. It also provides the opportunity for this show to laugh at itself with regards to all of the PreCure stock elements that it uses. What I like about PreCure is that they really emphasize both aspects of the trope, which is simply the proportional relationship between the Friendship between the characters and the prowess that they exude.


Even though Miyuki is barely new to the school, her comfort level with Akane, built from the previous episode’s self-introduction scene naturally progresses to a genuine concern. Smile is capable of doing this for the most part, at least with regards to the fundamental elements of PreCure. I kind of want to see 7 Cures since I think it’ll be pretty cool, as long as they find a way to balance them properly and not sacrifice too much air time. She still has her moments, but I feel she toned it down just enough for me to like her again.
Even when I did get it, the episode count had grown to the point that it was intimidating just to think about watching it. However I somehow or another got the idea to instead watch all of the six non-sequel series concurrently. Saki and Mai are pretty similar to Nagisa and Honoka respectively and even have similar fairies and transformation devices.
It just has so many things that I like such as the dancing and the heart and clover motifs used. I also enjoy the character dynamic between Hibiki and Kanade because it falls outside of the Precure norm.
For one I like the little bits that carry across the series such as the Double Precure Kick.
In other words characters such as Nozomi and Love rank as my favorites which is somewhat strange since these types of characters don’t usually become my top choices in many anime.
On the most extreme end I could be called a Precure addict which I will have to admit I am. But I decided to go in order (finished one so far), that didn’t last long because I really wanted to see Fresh Precure (and Eas)!
Glitter Force is described as being a 40 episode series, with each episode being 22 minutes long. No further information, such as a broadcast schedule or home video release plans, is currently available at this time. It has thirty-three tracks from the first half of the anime, an encore song, and two bonus tracks which brings the soundtrack to a grand total of thirty-six tracks.
Overall, I really enjoyed it, and Smile, despite its potential challenges with balancing out the cast throughout the show, has been reasonably maintaining a solid standard of watchability for PreCure fans and newbies alike. She doesn’t live up to the ace billing that she displayed in class, and practices under a bridge due to her disappointing outing. Such examples include heroes like Maka from Soul Eater and Sosuke Sagara from Full Metal Panic.
As the secondary and point-of-view character in this episode, I’ll give her a passing mark this week; since she readily defers the spotlight to Sunny, while supporting her in helping with her awakening as a PreCure.
Akane is already friends with Kise (Cure Peace), and readily accepts Miyuki as one as well. He doesn’t show any other abilities with regards to fighting, and depends too much on his summons. Furthermore, the name of the theme-named village is Nanairogakura, which loosely translates to “Raibow village.” As it stands, five of the seven colours are already represented by precure withOrange, Yellow, Blue, and Green represented by Sunny, Peace, Beauty, and March, respectively. This is a casting decision that I support, despite my worries about the show’s ability to balance out an already large cast. We’ve already seen it with Miyuki’s inability to use her PreCure powers, as well as her remarkable failure to do so in this episode. Both manage to increase gradually because we get to see them become closer to each other throughout the show, and the believability of those bonds rest on how likeable the characters are. At first she tries to pull off the somewhat tired “I want to protect my friend’s sadness” card, but Akane wants none of that.
However after a little advice I decided to take the plunge a couple of weeks ago to watch all of the series starting with Suite Precure.
Unlike the other series in the franchise which have more-or-less equal heroines, this is the only one with a clear cut and explicitly stated leader.
The main lead this time around is not the energetic type like usual but instead the more shy type. Unlike the usual duos with the fairly friendly relationships seasoned with the occasional straining moments, Hibiki and Kanade are always at it.
Speaking of which I also appreciate the well-choreographed fight scenes which do a great job of showing how tough the girls are while maintaining a certain level of tension. The speed at which I’m going through episodes and the fact that I am constantly thinking about it should prove that. Very attracted by Fresh Precure in particular since I really like Eas’s character design.
If I were to watch a LONG anime series, like Detective Conan, I would just watch 1 or 2 episodes a day form the very beginning… and keep going and going… until years pass and I arrive to the last episode without even noticing! Her passion for volleyball also brings out a competitive spirit in her in which she wants to show off her abilities to Miyuki, but her failing to do so initially shouldn’t be overstated. At least with the incompetence of Trio the Minor from Suite, they were purposely bad due to their role as comedic relief (not that they were effective at that role anyway, to say the least). Loosely speaking, Cure Happy is visually pink, coinciding with the pink jewel in the cure tact, but dynamically falls under indigo with regards to the colour spectrum, since indigo is often regarded as the miscellaneous colour.
It continues to be a hit, but at the same time, it still manages to play some tropes fairly straight, and fairly effectively.


If we as an audience are capable of liking these characters, then we are then capable of liking them liking each other.
Instead, we’re treated to a nice little heartwarming moment where Akane instead enlists Miyuki to help her with her volleyball practice. This is without a doubt the largest anime watching project I’ve ever had and at this point I may be partly insane.
To put it another way I could have finished a single Precure series already if I had concentrated all of those episodes into one show. It’s quite funny since Nozomi despite being the leader is the only one without a very obvious talent except maybe always smiling.
Cure Peach was quite impressive during her first fight and looked so cool giving such a beating to the enemy to protect her idol.
Erika takes the more energetic role and though it took me a little while to get used to her my pace style, she’s started to grow on me. Actually I have done that on multiple occasions so at this rate I’ll have them memorized in no time. The Precure franchise is really fun to watch and I’ll continue to look forward to each new episode as I make my way through this project. Actually, I DO want to watch all of Detective Conan… but once I have a decent level of Japanese hehe.
Akane’s improvement significantly shows in the next practice, but is interrupted by Wolfrun, who captures the bad energy of the volleyball team.
As far as Osakans go, they’re often characterized as boisterous braggarts, which comes into play quite effectively when Akane fails to live up to her big talking. Sasorina takes her insecurities out on the PreCure with her snarky laugh and potent scorpion hair. If Wolfrun is intended to be played straight as a villain, then he’s not doing a particularly convincing job at doing so.
I’m not certain, but I believe for the most part that it will, and I’ll look forward to it happening later, rather than sooner. A simple reversal like that is what I truly love about this show and its approach to the tried-and-true elements of friendship; it takes a realistic, yet still fluffy approach to the scene, while at the same time, introduces a humorous element with Candy, who brings up Miyuki’s short attention span surrounding her search for new PreCure members. When the percentage drops to about 20% when Reika joins, it should be good enough for me to tolerate her antics. I’ve even sidelined all but currently airing anime to make room for all of the Precure.
However I do not regret my spread watching method since it gives me a good look into all the Precures. In the latest episode, Siren’s situation also felt a little similar to Eas so I see a lot of potential for that. Miyuki transforms into Cure Happy, but is unable to defeat the volleyball-shaped Akanbe monster.
She falls pretty hard, but doesn’t give up; she’s immediately seen doing spiking drills by herself. It’s too early to make any judgments here, since we’re yet to see March and Beauty in any considerable spotlight at the moment. Anyway the expanded line-up and the ability of the Precures to transform independently of one another allows opportunities to mix-and-match the main girls and explore many relationships and situations.
Love’s relationship with Setsuna is yet another reason I love this show and I find myself watching this the most in the hopes of seeing this befriending develop further. Akane escapes the clutch of Wolfrun’s bad energy, and defends Cure Happy from the Akanbe, and awakens as Cure Sunny in the process.
The Nagisa and Honoka duo are also the most distant team since they don’t know each other prior and take longer to become close in comparison to say Tsubomi and Erika. Cure Bloom and Cure Egret’s basic repertoire of energy powers also mix up the fights enough to keep things exciting. For example it was amusing to watch how Rin and Karen’s personalities clashed in episode 8. At times Fresh feels like the wackiest of the shows which only helps to further my enjoyment. Of course the large team also means that the transformations and special attacks don’t look as flashy as could be. Fresh has one of my favorite ending songs so far too and though the dance itself is relatively simple, it fits the chill nature so well. The overall design aesthetic such as the bright color pallet and more stylized proportions is quite interesting especially how it contrasts with the other shows in the franchise. A lot of the later series, though still in Japan somewhere, have much quirkier settings and situations.
I also find it amusing that the fairies in this series can assume the forms of good-looking guys which leads to some hilarious situations.
HeartCatch also happens to have my favorite opening sequence which I can never seem to get out of my head.
