I've only just begun watching the whole PreCure franchise. Finished the first Futari Wa the other day, and have Max Heart and movies lined up next.

Only half of Splash Star has been subbed, isn't it? Pity Sad

And now there's going to be even more PreCure. Wow, it just keeps going and going Smile

Wow, it really does just keep going ._.;;; I haven't even gotten past the few eps of Yes! Pretty Cure 5! either. All the raws for that series + GoGo are just occupying too much disk space on my external drive. xD Argh, why do they have to have that kind of background work that takes up so much more disk space. xD

You haven't. All I can say from the first few eps. I saw when it first aired is that it's good. It's almost like an apology for 'Splash Star'. But again 'PC:SS' wasn't so bad, it was that they were catering to a younger audience. What I liked about 'PC5' was that they added characters that would appeals to both younger and older audiences while bringing back some kick ass action. They went back to what made the first series such a success.

I'm sure you can find some eps around. I enjoyed what little I saw, but I had to put it off because I just didn't feel like doing another 50 eps, magical girl show. But I may go back. Check it out.

*I'm not surprised they were doing another series. So lets see what they come up with next.

6, actually.

Yes! Pretty Cure 5 was season 4, Yes! Pretty Cure 5 Gogo! was season 5.

No, it'll be four or six, depending on how you count:

Futari Wa Pretty Cure
- Max Heart
Splash Star
Yes! PreCure 5
- Yes! PreCure 5 Go Go!


Max Heart is a continuation of the first series, and Go Go! is a continuation of Yes! PreCure 5.

Yes fine, whatever... As far as Toei Animation is concerned each year is a different series. Continuity is a separate consideration. They're listed as separate series on the corporate website.

Oops. Seems you mistook my "No, .." as aimed at you. It wasn't. I was typing my reply to Conan at the same time as you posted yours. So I wasn't trying to correct you or anything.

And you're right. For all we know at the moment, the new series might even be a sequel to Go Go!.

Doubtful if they are switching to only 3 main characters.

I suppose they could have Karen and Komachi finally graduate (they've been seniors for 2 years now!) Smile.

Umm, Power Rangers is Japanese. Well, sort of. Footage of the transformed rangers comes from Japanese sentai series. The English-language show shoots new scenes with American actors for the non-transformed part (and makes up their own lame plot which usually has absolutely nothing in common with the Japanese series. Rolling Eyes )
