Go! Princess Precure Episode 24
This week’s episode of Go! Princess Precure turned out to be a lot more milder than I had anticipated it to be. There is nothing wrong with that of course because they still managed to deliver the charms. Last week I had thought Kirara’s and Towa’s personalities were going to clash, the independent VS the dependent, but instead it wasn’t he case at all. Instead, we saw Kirara have great patience working with Towa, encouraging her to ask questions when she doesn’t understand, covering up for her when she tends to speak too honestly about herself. And it is admirable especially when we were seeing Kirara facing her busiest schedule to date. Her success at the runway had provided her many new opportunities, including one where she was scouted to be the star model of a new magazine. But the result of her havoc schedule was catching up on her, and Kirara was absolutely drained. So when we see Towa have some mess ups, it was assuring to see how Kirara had the ability to control her expected grumpiness. It makes me excited to see how their friendship will blossom.
As the episode went on, we were able to see Towa slowly but surely adapt to her new environment and lifestyle. It was entertaining how her habits would kick in, and even more so when she brought up about having attendants get her lunch, and two of her newest fans did just that.
But while Towa had her own struggles adapting, we were able to see the kindness we weren’t able to see when she was Twilight. She was concerned about Kirara’s well-being, she wanted to help her when she was tired (calling Aroma and Pafu to bring tea in the middle of class). It’s that side of Towa we haven’t been able to see before because she was Twilight, and I look forward of seeing more of her true heart as the show goes on.
Aside from the focus on Towa and Kirara, there was one key plot detail that was brought up today. The girls now have twelve keys, but… Towa explained to us that isn’t actually the case because the three keys she has were created by Dyspear, so that means her keys cannot be used to save her Kingdom. With the three remaining true keys left to be found, I am a bit at loss of how they will be divided or used since there are now four of them in the group. It also makes me wonder how does Dyspear’s purified keys which Towa is using right now will affect her ability to become the Grand Princess. Would she swich keys or would there end up being a forth member to the team? Could it also be only exclusively distributed to the original three, pr will the remaining three keys either face some sort of peril? There are still 25 Episodes left, so there is certainly more than enough time to throw in another member

Overall, this was a strong ‘quiet’ episode. The pacing was set just right. Anything slower or anything faster wouldn’t have felt right. My favourite scene however, was Shut facing grown up Lock for the first time. What I loved was how Shut was smart enough not to do anything stupid. He was quick to pick up that the Lock knew is not the same was the one he is now facing, and sitting on Dyspear’s throne. I am sure he has a million things running through his head, so I wonder how he will handle the second round of turn of events. Well luckily for us, Shut will finally be back in some sort of action next week. He is seen holding Dyspear’s Despair Container, so it is a possibility Lock might send him out into the field. Here’s to hoping he and Towa will get the chance to talk (but it might be too soon for that).
Next week, although the girls are going over to Haruka’s house for a sleepover, it appears it may be a Minami and Towa central episode.
