Happiness Charge Precure Ep 10


My name is Eva, I've been watching Anime since 2003, and I became a fan later in 2005. I am a passionate writer, so it's a wonderful experience and incredibly thrilling to blog reviews/critics and just express myself about the series.

    In terms of plot progress… well, it is, you know, a Precure series. At least 48 episodes long, mainly episodic, primary demographic is intended to be children. Out of the Precure series that I’ve now watched, the only one in which I can remember there having been plot progress a mere ten episodes in was DokiDoki, and that’s because it was unique in that it had every episode move the plot forward in some way.

    I’m here for colorful sparkly magical girl combat and power of friendship speeches and yuri undertones and such. Of course those are better when they’ve got a strong ongoing plot to support them, but I take what I can get.

      The thing is, plots are what usually makes it easier for me to blog because it’s hard to write up entries when there isn’t much to talk about except for sitting back an enjoying the show. I see a potential in this show story-wise, and that is why I can’t help but be impatient because I do want to still be covering it when the plot finally comes around. Ten episodes in often doesn’t have much progress in series like Precure, it’s really only the true kick off and only around the 20th episode is when the plot starts to simmer more at the surface before disappearing again after the girls achieve their powerup. It’s that kind of pattern. XD

      The undertones of Yuri were strong in Doki Doki Precure. XD

        DokiDoki’s undertones of yuri were so trong at times they kind of stopped being “under.” I’m fairly certain I caught an “aishiteru” passing between Mana and Regina at at least one point, rather than the standard “daisuke.”

        And yeah, usually somewhere in the 20s the girls will get a powerup or a late-arrival-Cure will appear and we’ll get some plot development before things shift back to being episodic for a while. That’s just the nature of these series.

        Anyway, now that I’ve had a chance to watch the episode, I can see what you mean about the quality. The characters get pretty badly off-model at some points in this episode: it was kind of disturbing, actually.

        Speaking as a singer, Hoshiiwa’s song was actually not all that good. She just took Honey’s tune and put her own greedy lyrics in it. And she wasn’t really singing it all that well, either. Her voice came across as rather harsh at several points, actually.

        It’s nice that Yuuko’s song is powerful and heartfelt and all, but I do hope she comes up with a new one. They kind of overdosed us on this one, and it’s really a pretty silly song to begin with.

        I hope you can stick with blogging this some more, but if not thank you for taking the time to blog it this far. It gave me the push to go watch a bunch of Precure series that I’d never quite worked up the will to get started on before, so it’s very much appreciated. :)

  2. In my opinion, Heartcatch was the best, and then they just started deteriorating after.
