Episode 15. So Busy! Makoto's Day as an Idol!

The climax for this episode to me turned average, taking into account the obvious predictability of Ai-chan randomly flying into scene and unknowingly delivering Cure Lovies for everyone. Likely, to me the only thing new in this kind of trope would be that Ai-chan did not feel threatened or distressed to call out new power accesories for the girls rather it was the opposite.

Now, Regina is growing quite likeable on me. She has a very gung-ho personality, though quite forceful and asking to be given things without earning them. She doesn't spare to adopt false identities, but instead reveals herself straightforwardly to the Cures; she goes where she pleases, and does what she pleases.
As far as I can discern, she only wants to have fun with the Cures, and to be able to forcefully convert the hearts of people into Jikochuu when the latter are able to contain their selfish thoughts at bay, then that's to be reckoned with.

Mana-chan is a bloody saint who dosen't realize she is in a morally black and white universe of a grade-schooler anime rather than a "shades-of-gray" one for seinen audiences.

In morally black-and-white gradeschooler's anime, some people are just born bad, like being bad and cannot be changed. Still, she gets an A for effort for trying to change that sociopathic little she-Joker in the making called Regina. The kid's got heart.

I hope Regina some how redeems herself. It would be bad to teach kids that if you are born in a family with a bad rep, it means you too are bad.

Oh man, Regina is a horrifying little monster so cute and awesome
She single-handedly fulfill my dark magical girl quota; she's right up there with Toshino Sakura Kyouko
When you want someone or something, you better get her/it, and be undeniable in your advance.

I hope Regina wins the competition for Mana's heart, and not in the jikochu-making way

Hasn't at least one character in most Precure series swapped sides, whether passively or actively, regardless of their origins?

Oh sorry, this is actually the FIRST Precure series that I have watched, Mainly because I am a HUGE Nabatame Hitomi (Mana) and Kotobuki Minako (Rikka) fan!!

Episode 16. Regina's Fierce Attack! Mana's Mine!



As of late, I'm a week behind the episodes.


On-Topic

Plot wise, the Cures got no crystal this episode. Nonetheless, Regina's tour was very fun to watch, and she's just adorable when she throws a tantrum.

To the issue if Regina's truly evil, well she got very close to Ai-chan, but the baby did not cry. Actually, she and Regina enjoy together the dance to the rhythm of the music. However, that doesn't necessarily be an indicator to tell if Regina has an ulterior nature aside from her usual selfishness.

As far as the episodes go, while she's taking the lead stages in each episode Regina will continue to forcefully making Jikochuu out of unwilling people; now that's the recent thread.

From the start of the show the trends about how the "Selfishness" kingdom approaches the Earth and do battle Pretty Cure have delivered varied mixes.

- The trio stimulating the victim's selfishness in order to create Jikochuu.
- The trio each one of them fusing with the Jikochuu to turn to Beast Mode.
- A few of the victims became properly developed characters in the respective episodes in which they appeared in before being turned to Jikochuu.
- Most recently, Regina taking the spotlight and forcing hearts of their respective people to turn into Jikochuu.

After all the reveals of this episode, there is this nagging feeling inside me that suggests Regina isn't actually the daughter of King Selfish, but rather the daughter of the princess and Mr. Klondike Bar. Notice the princess having blue eyes and Jonathan Klondike with blonde hair, both the same color as Regina's.

Hmmm, maybe. I feel like Doki Doki is the most ambiguous when it comes to extra cures compared to other Precure series.
