"Aguri"...? I can't help but think of it as the Japanese pronunciation of "ugly" when I read that... I was hoping her name would be something different... ^^;

Oh well... maybe the name will sound prettier than I think it will...

I've watched a few episodes of this here and there based on a friend's recommendation. It's pretty good!

However, this show simply screams for a particular AMV. This is based on one of the first things that really stood out to me, and left me chuckling heartily - Specifically, what Alice Yotsuba is constantly driving around in.

That alone begs for this anime to have an AMV done to Bruce Springsteen's "Pink Cadillac".

(The part dealing with temptations could easily be done to people getting turned into Selfish monsters of the week - It would fit nicely!)

If anybody could do this AMV, I'd greatly appreciate it. I'll probably do it myself at some point if nobody else wants to give it a try, but I'm sure some folks here could do a better job than me since the only video editing program I've managed to master is Windows Movie Maker.

Episode 22. She Appears in the Midst of Danger! The New Warrior, Cure Ace!

TBH, I wasn't impressed with Cure Ace's debut, since TOEI doing all the advertising made her a commonality to be expected within the storyline.

No. What truly captivated me in this episode was Regina feeling some sort of heartbreak and little jealousy after getting to live one day and night with Mana and her family.

What sort of father King Jikochuu is for not spending time with its daughter? - Regina was aching from within, although she did her best to stay at ease.

Spoiler:


The best highlight of the episode came with Cure Heart falling into despair and feeling heartbreak, as she tried in vain to reach the now-evilized Regina back with her voice but was swatted away.
That level of drama on that scene alone became so memorable to me.

You know I feel that Doki Doki will be a little bit reminiscent about the first Pretty Cure series.

That dress isn't for the series. It's for the upcoming movie. That's her wedding dress.

I have to say the whole figuring out "who Cure Ace really is" kind of reminds me of the old days of Power Rangers Zeo where they threw in a lot of red herrings just to get kids to figure out who the mysterious Gold Ranger is.

Oh budget. Cure Ace has the best transformation ever in any precure series. And look how goddamn strong she is.

Well of course. She's Iori Minase, no wonder she's strong.

Cure Ace being badass (even her transformation makes me shiver...), though her voice as a Precure is better than her civilian form's...

Still sad by the fact that most of the issues get resolved pretty quickly..

What's with the bouncing jelly? She's like a kid in her civilian form. It's like her entire character change after she transformed.
Also, Anyone else think that Ai is cute in this episode? I still remember the days when they said that the baby will ruin the show.

I still think she serves no purpose. Also, the introduction of Ace like this will create a situation like Suite, in which a lot of episodes will be "wasted" to bring her up to par, character wise.

I don't think anyone said that Ai would ruin the show - just that her design was weird and that she might if she was anything like Chiffon. Ai as a character really hasn't done much and has been nothing but a deus ex machina who had an episode or two centered around her. These episodes appeared much earlier in the series and were pretty much forgotten after Regina appeared.

^It's the same format for any Sentai show when 6th ranger show up. Also the same for Kamen Rider when 2nd rider show up. Their power will going down soon. And in the end they'll never be as strong as the red/mainchar. That's just the first time they do that in precure and all.
