News Yes! Precure 5 Go Go! Magical Girl Sequel Confirmed
posted on 2007-11-28 06:00 EST
The Japanese website of Asahi TV has confirmed on November 28 that Yes! Precure 5 Go Go!, the fifth television series in the Precure magical girl franchise, will premiere next spring. The title is an apparent wordplay on the seminal anime series Mach Go Go Go! (Speed Racer). (The Japanese words for "series number" and "5," and the English term "go," can be pronounced almost exactly the same way.) An earlier, tentative title ("Yes! Precure Go Go Go!") for the fifth series had been inadvertently revealed when pre-orders for official accessories were posted online.
Toei Animation (Sailor Moon, Ojamajo Doremi) has been producing the Precure franchise since 2004. 4Kids had licensed the original Futari wa Pretty Cure television series for North America, but the company did not release it.
