Heartcatch Precure is a very good Magical Girls series with a lot of good humor, great fight animation, and some absolutely wonderful handling of character and gender.

Discussion of character arcs behind the cut. )

So yeah, watch Heartcatch Precure, it is a really, really good show.

That was really good and amazing and emotionally satisfying and epic and hilarious and moving and was a very well executed final arc for the series and after I've had a chance to decompress and look back at it all without turning into a big pile of ooey-gooey emotions going "bwaa-waa-waa-waa" like I've been hit by a Precure Fortissimo, I will be able to post a more thorough overview of the whole series.

Hint: it was really good.

Yay, Kaoruko got to be Cure Flower again for a Christmas Miracle! Oh crap, Dune is on Earth and is going to start wrecking everything.

The remaining episodes are going to be a bit tense I'm imagining.

Two things; one, LOL at the one little boy who didn't want to watch Precure until Yuri said that he was just scared of the monster, and two, it seemed like the fight animation in this one was really smooth and well done, even more so than usual.
cypsiman2: badass lady of my heart (Nami)
Well! Now we know what happens if the Precures don't pretty cure a rampaging desertian now don't we? I hope the lady-formerly-known-as-Sasorina gets to come into play again before the end.

That was a really nice little movie; I liked all the scenes with Olivier bonding with everyone, though I kept expecting there to be this bit where Olivier would reveal that he was actually a girl and Tsubomi would freak out about it. Also, for a guy supposedly consumed with hatred, Salamander never got very mad at all that I noticed, he always seemed calm and composed even when Olivier was betraying him and stuff.

TSUBOMI! SHE DID IT, THEY ALL DID IT, THEY CONFRONTED THEMSELVES AND GOT SUPER MODES AND THE MOST BADASS FINISHING MOVE EVER! THIS SHOW, THIS SHOW!!!
cypsiman2: badass lady of my heart (Nami)
The management would like to assure everyone that this episode was not little more than a heavy-handed and shameless excuse to shill Nana Mizuki's new song, but since we in the management have no shame, and Nana Mizuki's singing is more awesome than your face, we are not going to bother about that and will instead direct you to buy our albums immediately.

On a more serious note though, since the show's started advertising for the movie, is there a certain point in the series where it is most appropriate to watch the movie or can I watch it any old time?
cypsiman2: badass lady of my heart (Nami)
Yay, Cure Moonlight is back! And it figures that her fairy was lean and cool and her transformation sequence is so much shorter than the others. Also, that fight with all the precures and all the apostles and the dark precure was just amazing. Also, new theory, Sabaaku Yuri's dad.
cypsiman2: badass lady of my heart (Nami)
Huh, so mystery handsome protector dude was in fact Coupe; well, there goes my theory about mystery handsome protector dude and Dune being the same dude. And don't worry Tsubomi, there is someone else; why, I bet that someone else is closer than you think, with long golden hair and everything.

Also, yay, Yuri's going to get her powers back, yay!
cypsiman2: badass lady of my heart (Nami)
Okay, I would like to collaborate with everyone on a gift for Yuri. That gift? All the hugs in the world, because she could really use them.
cypsiman2: badass lady of my heart (Nami)
The last few episodes; Cure Sunlight is amazing forever and will beat up all the badguys and will always win Tsubomi's heart forever and ever...which becomes a minor issue in this episode as even Tsubomi's childhood friend can see what's going on here. Also, it turns out that mystery protector dude looks just like Grandma Kaoruko's husband and first love. Also, Grandma Kaoruko was a total Karate BAMF to the surprise of absolutely no one. This show is so good to me.
cypsiman2: badass lady of my heart (Nami)
I could watch Cure Sunshine's henshin sequence forever; I don't know what it is about it, but it is wonderful and she is beautiful and everything is sunlight and happiness forever and ever.

Regarding episode 19: I found the bit where they specifically pointed out the proper way to cut vegetables to be very amusing, especially given my rant back in episode 12.  And yes, Tsubomi was exceptionally adorable with that camera.  I would have liked it if the guest character's fiance had been there as well, but its not anything important to the story, so there it is.

Regarding episode 20: Professor Sabaak has a boss and is all "I totally knew you were alive the whole time and I definitely wasn't taking over your organization for you, nope nope nope.  Also, given the efforts made to conceal his identity, I'm going to say that Dune is the mystery pretty boy who's been protecting our heroes.  Also, I found the part where Sasorina yelled at everyone to stop fawning over the new merchandise and to pay attention to her very amusing.
cypsiman2: badass lady of my heart (Nami)
Personally, I found it incredibly appropriate that Ban, who wants to be a mangaka, had hair like a protagonist from a Shotaro Ishinomori manga. Also, Tsubomi is love for not only not being scared of Ban, but not even realizing that she was supposed to be. Also, Kumojacky was surprisingly okay with being used as a giant ink brush.
cypsiman2: badass lady of my heart (Nami)
During the bit where Yurika is using her broken Precure Seed to protect Blossom and Marine, I couldn't help thinking to myself "I guess there was some magic in that old top hat after all." My brain goes into weird places. Also, the bit about not worrying about getting approval from others for your hard work, it was kind of reminiscent of what happened in Legend of Korra. I think that's kind of neat.
cypsiman2: badass lady of my heart (Nami)
Oh hey, it's another episode that says "SCREW YOU" to the gender binary! Also, Itsuki manages to go toe-to-toe with Kumojacky and manages not to be pulped inside of 10 seconds, nice. Gee, that's the second character who could fight without Precure powers, and the other was a former Precure. Gee, I wonder if anything is being foreshadowed at? :3
cypsiman2: badass lady of my heart (Nami)
Most of this episode went much as I expected, save for the part where Yuri/Cure Moonlight's dad has been searching for the Great Heart Tree for the past three years. I almost began to think that this might have something to do with the mystery pretty boy who protects the Precures every so often, but Yuri had no special reaction to seeing him, so I'm thinking no. Instead, I'm going with the theory that Sabark and Mystery Pretty Boy are connected, probably the same dude.

Also, the mooks are called snackies. Wasn't expecting them to work in the desert/dessert pun, since I don't it exists in Japanese.

THAT IS NOT HOW YOU CUT VEGETABLES! YOU DO NOT LEAVE YOUR FINGERS OUT LIKE THAT ON THE VEGETABLE YOU ARE CUTTING, YOU ONLY LEAVE YOUR KNUCKLES OUT, THIS REDUCES THE DANGER OF CUTTING YOUR FINGERS OFF!

Oh, and the fairies giving Marine a bamboo shoot to breathe through while stuck inside the water monster was very cute, as was Tsubomi being little miss love expert.

BUT SERIOUSLY, DID NONE OF THE ANIMATORS EVER WATCH SOMEONE CUT VEGETABLES BEFORE? GAHH!
