To be fair to Makoto's VA I kind of like her speaking voice and don't have a problem with the song apart from the FURAAAAAi. It's like someone told her to scream but hold back at the end. I think the idea was to get kids to do the crane pose and sing with her at events.

Episode 6. Wow! MakoPi is Coming to my House!?

I came really late, but still in time before this week's episode starts airing.

I got to say that the serialization from episode to episode keeps getting better and better. The drama was nicely focused on Makoto recalling her memories about why she loved singing for that person with so much enthusiasm and spirit; the loss of that person and continued obsession to search for that person cause the shining within Makotos' singing to fade.

But, it was thanks to the interaction with Mana and co., that she experienced how it felt to live a normal live and doing things one loves with all heart, that she recovered her light.

Now, the only bad thing I have to say about the sixth episode was that making a Jikochuu out of a cameraman that was filming Makoto's segment at Mana's in no way made sense to me.
It would have made sense had it been a jealous, rival chef or hungry customer not wanting to wait until the filming would be over.
I guess that as for the rival chef story the writers would be pulling out on that one for a later episode.

But, everything else about the fight was gorgeous, and I pretty much enjoyed the Pig Jikochuu since it only cared about overeating rather than fighting, which made the whole ruckus not a real fight but a comedy episode.

It wasn't a cooking competition, and the store was probably closed that day. I think it's fair to assume that the pawns aren't going to be anyone significant, since the villains just target whoever has a half-hearted selfish thought. It's not like Heartcatch where the villains take advantage of people's actual worries. The targets so far have had minor issues like "I wish I could cut the line" or "I wish there wasn't a street-light there". Jealous idol girl was about the closest to breaking the norm but even she's like "Oh nevermind, she's much better than me."

I Never meant a cooking competition. All I said was stating a different scenario, which could possibly be used as a singular and minor plot for a later episode; another chef feeling envious towards the success that Mana's father gets but gets healed and flush those worries as quickly as they come.

Was watching the Precure All Stars movie's ending dance and it struck me that green is the rarest color among Precures. There's like only 2 of them, ever. Is that so?

This series may be inferior to Smile Precure in terms of character design and animation quality, but it's already a lot more interesting.

Smile had a pretty terrible story in the end. This one is kind of bad ass.

Doki Doki will never have Yayoi, and Yayoi is my favorite Cure ever. Ultimately, I'd say that characters are more important than story, and in that regard, Smile and Doki Doki stand about equal. Though I can appreciate a more serialized plot, too.

Yayoi is very cute indeed but just herself wasn't enough to save the show for me sadly.

I feel like Slime tried putting everything into Yayoi and Reika, who had more interesting and quality episodes. Miyuki isn't anything special character-wise, and Nao and Akane got far less focus and just felt like similar characters as a result.

So far, Doki's been balanced pretty well. Rikka's the only character that feels similar to previous Cures, but she's got Mana as a foil, which helps her stand out. I don't feel like any one character is ever getting less focus and for once, I've got no real issues with the lead Cure.

Basically, while Smile does have Yayoi, Doki's has its entire Cure cast, at least for now.

Really enjoying this so far. If they manage to consistently keep the show at or near the level of the early episodes, it will be the best series since Heartcatch.

Episode 7

Back story time! We learn all about the Trump Kingdom, and the whole setup with the Selfish King's invasion. Not a whole lot actually happens this episode, but we do get some pretty nice animation, a good fight scene, and one of the better good queens in Precure.

The bit with Mana laughing and the queen using her spear/staff was pretty good. But what really struck me was how many Sailor Moon elements were in the episode, even beyond the regular ones that all Precures have - there's the mirror motif from Nehellenia, Search For Your Love, and lots of Sailor Moon 44 in general.

Anyways, it's good episode, and I hope that there's more of this quality. I just hope that that baby thing doesn't turn out to be the queen (which would also be Sailor Moon-ish).

The eyecatch pose looks a lot better than the one in the show.

I'm pretty sure that black is the rarest color.

Mana has had only the one good showing so far, and Rikka hasn't really had anything to do since her intro episode. The art and animation has been pretty inconsistent at times. Even without looking at other Precure shows, Dokidoki still has quite a ways to go to being good. More episodes like this one would be a promising step.

Watched episode 7:

So this time it's a princess and not a queen who is the leader of the kingdom to be saved. And Cure Sword is her close friend. Rather interesting story.

Mana and her two friends finally succeed in befriending Makoto in this episode - group is now complete. Well, Mana would probably be enjoying the fact that a famous idol would be visiting her place from now on.

Looking forward to next week.

Nabatame Hitomi playing an adorable and upbeat Nice Girl (Mana), okay, nothing out of the blue.

But next week we get to see her evolve into playing a gentle, nurturing and maternal character. Boy the world has gone topsy-turvey!! She has come a LONG way since Kanu of Ikkitousen, she has.

Mana's counter-Evil-Laugh was priceless. Easily the coolest part of the episode.

I liked the fact that Mana used her brain. Surprising how she was the only one who realized that the bad guys can travel from one place to the other, so the mirror can't be the only way. I was thinking about it just before she started her evil laugh. I'm proud of her, for now she is a very capable leader.
