Go! Princess Precure Episode 6
This week revolved around where Haruka is at in her progress to become a Princess. While Minami and Kirara already have ‘Princess’ aura around them, their peers perceive her as a bud, and I like that. I too consider Haruka as a small bud waiting to blossom into a beautiful flower. She has a lot of flaws, and she is working hard on addressing them. However while Haruka aspires to be the Princess from the story she loved when she was a child, I think somewhere down the line, Haruka will learn to appreciate her own unique qualities and flaws as an individual to become the princess she wants to be.
Prince Kanata revealed to us the main mission of the series. In order to return the dreams to the people of Hope Kingdom, the girls need to locate and retrieve the remaining nine out of twelve Dress Up Keys that had fled into their world when the Dys Dark invaded. Once they they have all twelve keys, only one person can then become the Grand Princess. Kanata however does not understand the motive and reasoning behind Dyspear’s invasion, so the reasoning behind stripping people of their dreams remains a mystery. He is frustrated how he wasn’t able to protect his people and is on the run within his own Kingdom, making it difficult for him to try and communicate with the royal fairies without being detected by Dyspear.
Due to those circumstances, we probably won’t hear too much from him. Now I don’t know about you, but they were killing my shipper heart with all the tease of Kanata x Haruka.
NO, STOP IT EVA, DON’T FALL FOR IT.
OH NO, NOT THE GOO GO EYES. NOPE, NOPE, I CAN DO THIS.
SHIT. THEY PLAYED THE FATED MEETING CARD.
I CAN’T MY EMOTIONS, MY FEELINGS I CAN’T I SHIP IT!!!!! THEY ARE SO CUTE TOGETHERRRRRRRR!
SO IN LOVE! /SQUEALS
My shipper goggles are locked on tight and all I can see are the two exchanging lovey eyes of first love, and I can’t help but squeal about it. I mean come on, fated meeting of the Dress-Up key traveling across realms with little!Kanata following behind and meeting Haruka who was chosen by the key, I CAN’T!!!! I SHIP IT SO HARD!!!!!!! But alas! I must remove these shipping goggles, and avoid getting my hopes up for romance to blossom.
With the revelation of one of them becoming the Grand Princess, Haruka makes it her mission to inherit the role. I am excited to see how Haruka will grow, how she will overcome her struggles and see whether or not she will be chosen to fulfill the role. Right now, most of us know that it is bound to be Haruka – but the ultimate question is, when the moment comes, will she be chosen? Will there be a failure before she gains the role? I am curious to see if they will do something of the sort to make it more challenging. But perhaps the things she must go through will be just that. Next week certainly jumps onto that right away as Haruka is forced to be partnered up with a boy who had bullied her in the past. In order to blossom she must weather whatever the storm she faces. And I look forward to watching her grow into the Grand Princess she aspires to be.
I was pleased to see that the event with Miss Shamour was short and sweet. She is the royal instructor fairy (or something of the sort, since we know she can transform) who today started off with the lessons of Afternoon Tea. I don’t know how much we will see of her, but I do love her design. She is stored in this mirror/tablet thingy when she isn’t needed, so bizarre- it makes me think consider her like a genie in a lantern, except she doesn’t grant wishes. She is already thinks highly of Minami and Kirara, but considers Haruka the clumsiest one of all. I anticapte how she will help Haruka grow as a princess since while she may not be the star pupil, she is the most enthusiastic student of the group.
Dyspear’s character was revealed today, and HOLY SHIT. SHE LOOKS AMAZING. I AM IN LOVE WITH HER CHARACTER DESIGN! She looks so wicked and so intimdating, hands down best Precure Villain Character Design to date! I am curious to see what sort of abilities she possesses as she is able to simply detect Kanata attempting to make communications with his allies. Then there is Lock, whose design is also awesome. He piped my curiousity of how strong he actually is considering the girls didn’t sense his presence until he started making comments. On top of that, he brushed off their encounter as his form of greetings to them. Interestingly he too identified Haruka as a mere bud, so I love that the writers are already forming a pattern to identify her character growth.
