Episode 09 - Pretty Cure Discovered?!

Probably I am awared that I will receive a scolding for complaining about the unreal DEUS-EX-MACHINA the writers pulled out in order to make Masuko forget about Pretty Cure.

I am as well appalled and unhappy with the outcome. With Masuko's sharp intuition and reporter sense, I was hoping she would be a regular character for this series but seemingly that would not be the case. Maybe, she'll return in about other 20 episodes again.

Spoiler:


I am also of your opinion, that she should have found out the identities of Pretty Cure, or a more plausible solution to the dilemma would had been for either Nuts or Coco to cast a memory charm on her to delete her memories on what she saw that day.

It is obvious that TOEI is playing or toying with the magic-girl genre rules (not bending them), but those guys should at least come with some believable DEUS-EX-MACHINA stuff.

And after watching this episode I was struck with an epiphany. That may well be a high possibility for a sixth Pretty Cure character appearing, but that would be around the second half of this series. Probably, around the late 20's or early 30's of episodes.

What would give you that idea?

It does come off as rather odd, but I guess in the end they decided rather than a serious scene to solve the dilemma they'd instead use a humorous scene. Which as shown can backfire. I'm not sure what to think about it myself. Other than to say hopefully they won't make a habit of it.

Episode 10 - Save the Starving Nuts

Have we come that far into the storyline? I mean it's been almost three months since Pretty Cure 5 began, and the show has already reached its 10th episode.

What surprises me is the activity going smoothly at this thread and that is due thanks to Arienai fansubs, since they continue to be consistent with their episode releases.
I once again thank you so much for the hard work Arienai


Spoiler:


I wonder if this episode tried to make a reference or a mock to all the publicity and merchandising the Pretty Cure franchise gets from TOEI to its target audience?
It's certain that Pretty Cure is still popular among girls from the 4-12 age group, but I heard that the effect of the whole franchise is wanning away.


On another note, I have already caught up with Arienais' releases for Max Heart. Took quite long.

If ratings I've seen are any indication, Yes! has reenvigorated the franchise, garning about 25-50% higher ratings than splash star did (about what max heart did near the end). Whether that has translated into merchandise sales, etc, I'm not sure.

And by the way, the "timely" release is due to me deciding to prioritize speed and not fancy typesetting or multi-layered editing/qcing.

I download the ep, translate it and time it simultaneously, typeset it (which generally is nothing more than a sign or two and coloring the character's text with find/replace), make a qc encode and alert my 2 qcers. They get back to me in a few days and I final encode it and release. The encode itself takes longer than the rest of the process for me . They aren't the best scripts I've ever made, but they're pretty good and the show is quite simple, plus, I like keeping up with the airing, it's a good feeling.

Maybe I fail at the internet or something, but I just can't seem to find any good sites with Precure art. I know of this place

http://diary.fc2.com/cgi-sys/ed.cgi/kazuharoom/

and the art is good except that some of it is too "fanservicey" for me.

I've come across these at 4chan:

(Random Evil Kaoru)

but I can't find the artist sources for them.

There's also this that I found:

And I would really like to have the whole set.

Ok, I'm in. I really didn't want to start another magical girl show (Considering I never was a 'SM' fan, but started with 'PC'). But...

I watched ep. 10 this past Sat. and I have to agree that this installment has definitely revitalized the franchise. It's like they took everything they could find in most shows and combined them to make this show. I do like the way that all 5 characters have their own personality. The oddest combination having 2 3rd years, 2 seconds and 1 first all hanging out. And while 'Nozomi' sort of reminds me of 'Arika' from 'Otome', she's pretty gung-ho when it comes to getting the job done. And is relentless if anything downright scary when her mind is made up. The fact that the gang gave her leadership and her managing to live up to it was surprising. Not only that but the support her team-mates gave when she came up with a plan that worked. Well, only in a kid show. Episode 10 was the one that convinced me.

Not to mention having cute animals that turn into cute guys which plenty of chances to make tons of "naughty" jokes. Even the grandmother 'PC' didn't have that. Seems like 'PC' to 'MH' and 'Ye5! Might be the ones. Not saying 'SS' wasn't bad either but it doesn't have what the others have. And that's not necessarily a bad thing considering the audience it was aimed at.

They can call it Tom, Dick and Harry's (no-not Potter)wild escapade and I'll still watch it-mascot creatures, lolicon magical girls and all-I was hooked on the originial series when I saw it at a local anime clubs meeting 3 years ago-goofy ending theme and all.

Yeah, I guess we know where that particular aspect of Nagisa's personality went. I.e. the "don't make her mad" part...

Episode 11 - Nozomi and Coco's Hot-Air Balloon

I really missed you guys from Arienai fansubs over the past two weeks. Thanks to you the thread is back to business.

I do have my complain concerning the animation issues for this episode, as it was plainly bad. I really dislike when the animation staff is rotated or changed, and I was fearing it would happen for this season and did.


Fortunately, this episode has a lot of strong points to its favor that made me interested and enjoyed it.

What surprises me is this one being subbed even before season 2 and 3 are even finished.

Why not? It's fun and it's really a completely different series.

As long as I plan on finishing max heart too, I don't see an issue with it.

Why not? It isn't as though season 2, 3 or 4 have any relationship with each other.
