Well, it was the same for Yes 5. Dream, lemon, red, aqua...

Well, if I remember correctly, in addition to the butterflies theme the names in Yes 5 were based by French perfumes/cologne which also coincide the series 's western reference & settings:

Dream - Incanto Dream
Rouge - Chypre Rouge
Lemonade - Pink Lemonade
Mint - Jo Malone White Jasmine & Mint
Aqua - Carolina Herrera Aqua Eau de Toilette。

Another year, another new Precure series.

The character designs don't look bad at all, and the plot is generic as usual, so this will be another series where characters and interactions will have to drive the show.

Unfortunately, I can't be too optimistic, since I have no confidence in Toei's ability to write a good KR show (which Fourze is), a good Super Sentai show, and a good Precure show all in the same year. So between Smile Precure and Gobusters, one of those will probably suck, or both will be mediocre.

Ergh, while I don't want to go OT too much, calling Fourze "good" is out of the question for me (including, but not limited to, the awful acting), and the same can be said for Gokaiger and Suite Precure. I'm honestly waiting just for Smile.

No need to go OT. There are Kamen Rider and Super Sentai threads buried in the General Discussion forum.

While I'm still strapped for information on Go-busters, information for this series just went up. The preliminary character profiles.

I am not a professional translator, mind.

Cure Happy
"The glittering light of the future!"
Likes picture books, a cheerful, energetic girl. Optimistic and almost never gets depressed. Catchphrase is "Ultra Happy!".

Her civilian form is giving me Akari Akaza vibes.

Cure Sunny
"The brilliant sun's hotblooded power!"
A girl with a burning heart, likes to make people laugh. Works at an okonomiyaki shop. Member of the volleyball club.

The group's tomboy, pretty much.

Cure Peace
"Sparkling light jan-ken-pon!"
A crybaby with a strong heart. Good at sympathizing with others, and will never break a promise. Has skill at drawing manga, but is too shy to show people.

Her design pretty much looks like 97% of all humanized Fluttershy art. Also, a manga drawing Cure? (Besides Kenji, I mean.) I'm in.

Cure March
"Awe-inspiring courage, an honest fight!"
A bold girl who won't let people get away with unfair things. A popular, honest older sister character type. Likes cute girly things, but is also good at sports. Member of the soccer club.

I can foresee her and Akane having some sexy tension with each other.

Cure Beauty
"Falling and accumulating, gathering on my heart!"
Elegant, dignified and kind girl. Reliable student council vice president. Doesn't get angry very much, but you won't like here when she's angry. Member of the archery club.

Her appearance reflects her demeanor.

And there you have it.

I was initially hesitant on trying out this new Precure show, but after seeing that the yellow haired girl is a LOT like me (what's her name?), I'm gonna at least give the show a try. I wonder if the seiyuus are announced yet?

As of now, no. There's a supposedly cast list floating around but it has not been confirmed.

If you can't recognize superior writing quality and consequential intentional avoidance of problems that normally plague the newer installmens of the franchise, I don't really know what to say to you. Fourze has been brilliant so far... well, as brilliant as these shows go anyway.


Now, I'm interested in Smile staff. Because really only producers and writers determine whether or not it's gonna be a shallow YPC5 remake that it shapes up to be.

Oh yes, I can see it, but the awful acting can't make up for a good script no matter what.

I assume nothing will be known for about two more weeks I think.

I'm not sure what you mean by awful acting. The characters were written to be over the top, and the actors seem to manage it. Unless you're referring to Shun's crying a few episodes back.

As for Smile Precure:
* Cure Happy: the genki girl, nothing different from Nozomi/Dream.
* Cure Sunny: a tomboy? Yeah, it's Rin/Rouge, but please let her not be screwed over this time.
* Cure Peace: oh god, another useless yellow cure.
* Cure March: huh? sounds like another tomboy, but there's already Sunny on the team. That hair in cure form is terrible, btw.
* Cure Beauty: the student council vice president. almost like Karen/Aqua.

Yep, it's YPC5, take two. Please let this be better. (Though with orange and green seeming to be redundant characters, I'm not holding much hope here.)

We haven't even seen her in action yet, calling her "useless" is a bit of stretch. She may not be the most assertive of characters, but a foil is needed for everyone else. (And if pixiv is any indication, the older fanbase loves her.)

Well people who are shy just aren't the type to impose themselves on others, whether socially or in a fight. From appearances, her role is to stand around and be moe, unless she's holding herself in until she goes ballistic.

From the descriptions holding herself in seems to be Beauty's thing.

I don't think Peace will be useless since there are some shy characters who aren't useless

What on earth? This is 2011, being a tomboy isn't a personality defining characteristic.

I'm really looking forward to seeing yellow and green in action, seeing as they're basically totally new archetypes for the franchise. A sporty confident big sister type sounds awesome.
