Pretty Cure Max Heart

Yata! More Nagisa and Honoka!

I've just watched the first three eps of this.
And I'm happy to have Cure Black and Cure White back (just couldn't watch the other two).
I could have done with out Mepple, Mipple, and Porun, but I guess you have to take the good with the bad.

The transformation sequence is good, although Nagisa make some pretty funny faces during it.

And let's not forget about the mysterious Hikari.

Thanks go out to Arienai for subbing!

I like cutsey-poo, but they're less like sugar and more like saccharine.

Totally, most shoujo transformations are spinny little affairs consisting of hearts and pirouettes. Pretty Cures are explosive, tumbling, dynamic changes. The first time I saw them transform all I could say was "COOL"

Well, I can manage to watch some of these...but the scenes for Tokyo Mew Mew were just sad to see. I always skipped forward. Ichigo's transforming scene took about 2 minutes of the episode's total time... lol.

Yatta! At last, I have downloaded and watched the first Max Heart episode; I always looked forward to see the second series to the classic one.

Near the end of the previous year, December 28th to be exact, I was blissed to grace my eyes with the ending of the first Pretty Cure. There was a little sobbing from my part when the whole show ended in a bittersweet note.
Spoiler:


At that time I thought the ending needed more momentum to nicely wrap melancholic tone to Nagisa and Honoka's state of desolation.
Spoiler:


Then, yesterday I saw the first Max Heart episode, and the introduction blasted me.
It introduces a new sense of unshrouded mystery from the very beginning.
Spoiler:


Good relief! I'm happy to see again both girls in action; I indeed really missed Nagisa's quirks and tantrums.

The new transform sequences are vibrant, explosive, jittery with blasts of different color shades rather than opting to use the traditional girly decorations like swirls of hearts, rainbow effects, etc.

As far episode one goes, Zakenna gets blasted but afterwards reappears seemingly unscathed until the Marble Screws' aftereffects take their toll.

You don't get mp4. You need to decode it, and Combined Community Codec Pack is the answer.

Question

I got a question?

I've been watching 'MH' since I fnished the first season. I had been wondering something when the group started. Was the source material being used different in quality than the broadcast versions? The resolution is really clear for the DVD. But I had wondered since there were earlier ep. taken from the broadcasts.

Man, I love this show. And I don't really care much for shows like these. As I was never into 'Sailor Moon'. But now I can see why this show was favored so much. They kick soooo much 'Zakenna' ass! Hahaha!!! Pretty damn rough for a magical girl show. But with the directors of 'Air Master' behind it how could I not love it!

Every pretty cure release since episode 14 of the original series or so is based off of R2 DVD sources. And those DVDs themselves are generally excellent quality.

Ah, so everything afterwards were sourced from the DVDs. Then I guess the broadcasts were pretty standard fare imagewise then. Meaning the images were probably not as slick or cleaned up as the DVD versions. I'm guessing if that's the case.

It's more simply a function of the analgoue video capture TV broadcast based raws use, combined with a reencode compared with DVDs are clean sources with little to no noise, and are much much better sources to encode from (almost always). With the exception of the few digitally broadcast HDTV anime which has only started recently, DVDs are the best raw source one can get.
The actual animation is probably mostly identical.

After watching the first season and just the first two episodes of Max Heart, one question has been really nagging at me:

Spoiler for my question might have spoilers...:

Porun is just SOOOOOO adorable in Pretty Cure Max Heart, way more than in the first Pretty Cure anime. Episode 6 (00:03:10) has one really cute Porun scene. All Porun scenes are just uber cute!

Actually the art for some of the episodes are horrible. Take episode 11 for example, just look at the fighting scenes between Hikari & Zakenna.

If you thought that was bad you should have seen the character shots in the beginning of ep. 17 for the camping trip. Oh well, it's a kid show.

And yes 'Porun' is kawai~iii! Actually I think my cutest deal with him I think in the earlier season. I can't remember if it was first season or second. Think it was first season. This was during his mischievous days. He was mistaken for a bean bag at a outdoor event. But it was afterward watching him throw the bean bags in the basket after all the equipment was returned to storage. He just sat there going,

"Ouchy-ouchy po-po, ouchy-ouchy popo!"

I think that was my cutest moment for him. Can't believe I'm still thinking about that.

Shiny Luminous.

Her transformation speach is:

Kagayaku Inochi, Shiny Luminous! (Sparkling Life, Shiny Luminous!)
Hikari no Kokoro to Hikari no Ishi, (Heart of Light and Wills of Light)
Subete wa hitotsu ni suru tame ni! (For them all to become one)

(And yes, I did that from memory ).

The timing of this release was brilliant. I remember thinking to myself, "Argh! Why hasn't anyone done the second movie?" But then after finally watching it, I realized that they released it when they did in order to line up with the stuff that happened in the Max Heart series. If I had watched the movie any earlier, I wouldn't have known who the heck Lulun was. Bravo once again, Arienai. Bravo.

Okay, I finally finished the show, yay!

Now watch it all or I will cry. Actually, I already did cry a little. It was dust, I say, dust!
