Deltora Quest anime is an example to name among many anime shows that follow this format.

In addition, there's semi-serialization or pseudo-serialization, that which one episode follows up from the conclusion of a previous episode, but that one current episode builds the characters by focusing on standalone problems that are self-concluding in that episode, while the next one follows a new standalone story in order to develop another character.

Monster Rancher is an example to name other anime out there that follow this kind of story format.

From my experience with Pretty Cure seasons, generally speaking, Pretty Cure becomes a serialized continuity of episodes once it reaches the last story arc which usually involves one last confrontation against the Big Bad of the season that serves as the final boss.

But, from what I've been witnessing so far in Doki Doki is that this current season is becoming a hybrid of sorts. Right now the episodes are following a semi-serialization continuity. They're following from the conclusion of a previous episode, but, at the same time, introducing their own standalone tale that gets resolved within the scope of their respective episodes. However, at the long term broadcasting, the continuity of the show heads towards a clear road: Dealing with the Jikochuu and finding out the answers as to why they're set up at invading the Earth.

That was a welcome twist, at least I didn't see it coming.

Spoiler for Episode 4:


I'm sure this has been pointed out before, but the hideout of the bad guys seems to be an homage to the Amazon Trio from Sailor Moon SuperS. Even the music sounds similar. I like it. Maybe this'll turn out to be a PreCure series I end up finishing after all.

I feel like Alice/Cure Rosetta is gonna be my favorite Cure of all time. I'm really really enjoying this series and episode 4 is definitely my favorite, week after week I find myself rather eager to watch the next episode which doesn't usually happen with Pretty Cure. I've been impressed with every episode so far.

Same and I find myself surprised. I hope they can keep getting me back for more as the show goes on.

Episode 4

Overall, this was a pretty decent episode. The editing could be tightened up a bit, but it served its purpose. I'm a bit less fond of Arisu's character concept, but that'd be a different issue altogether.

Lookswise, episode 4 might be the best episode yet: the fight scene was sort of fun, and Cure Rosetta gets the best transformation yet. It looks like another case of Yellow Cure favoritism! I particularly like this shot here:



It doesn't look spectacular, but I like the composition, with Arisu leaning against the railing, with her hands behind her back, and her shoulders perpendicular to Sebastian. It shows us that she's not all that happy with her decision, and that she's looking for some reassurance. The lighting is a nice choice as well.

Finally, it looks like Arisu is actually an evil overlord: she has secret surveillance everywhere, and she can remotely delete any information that she wants to. She also knows all secret identities. Either that, or she's Batman.

I doubt that there would be a Fisheye though.

The fan reaction to Alice on pixiv is amazing. One of my favorite tags that appeared within the last day or three is 武神ありす, or "Alice the War God". It doesn't matter what future episodes do (though I expect they will do it), Alice will forever be immortalized in fanon as one step away from being a berserker. Just the same way that Rikka's devotion to Mana is receiving a very similar treatment to Homura.

Really, seeing the fan reactions are almost as fun as the show itself. It's a secondary, supplementary universe that the actual show only reinforces.

Episode 4. I'll Have to Refuse! I Won't Become a PreCure!!

I should enjoy the weekly episode discussion as soon as I get to watch the episode itself before the cheering dies down.

Ahem! Ok, I got to fasten my seat belt, because the fourth episode way exceeded the previous one with Alice possessing such a personal past and well-rounded depth into her character.

Basically, we got ourselves with a magical-girl rule now being broken; nobody else outside the magical-girl party should know about the secret identities of their members, but Sebastian does and keeps everything private and secret so as to protect his milady along with her friends.

It was just plain cool and funny awesome that for this season the Cures get their own vehicle to reach in time whenever the alarm goes on signaling Jikochuu presence nearby; technology of a billionaire corporation vs magical creatures to detect the presence of evil is put to the test by both sides in this episode; Cure Heart, however, couldn't handle the ride on car, well.

Moreover, it was good to learn this episode followed from our girl's mishap in the previous one forgetting about Lance. Furthermore, Alice's pack a superb spice in her background, personality traits, and moé convictions.
I do not know for sure whether her parents are dead or not, although this episode by itself seems to imply so, but I do agree she's sort of a billionaire heiress turned to magical-heroine type, and she's so badass when she gets serious at fighting.

I really enjoyed lots the piece of score played during her conversation with her grandfather, and theme about not being overwhelmed but using power for the sake of others greatly reminded about Spiderman's iconic quote, "With great power comes a great responsibility".

Episode 4:

(no longer placing in spoiler because it's been awhile already)

That's unexpected, the calm ojou-sama has a brutal side.
And two monsters in one episode. They sure want plenty of action in the early episodes.

And lastly, obtaining Cure Rosetta opened up an easy path towards finding the next pretty cure. This is going to be interesting, I've never seen a precure series where the cures have a reliable butler as a backup.

Nice to see one more liking the song. There's one time that I repeated the ending three times to listen to it.

I know the official pixiv name is ManaMako, but I'm severely tempted to call them the Shinobu Combination, since 忍 is, of course, Heart Under Blade.
