Oh man, that's so sweet. I hope the series keeps garnering success for many years to come! Let's still be weirdos watching Precure when we're shriveled old ladies in our 60s. :D

More All Stars movies to go with this means less attention for all involved. Laughing

As long as merchandise keep selling like hot cakes, it shouldn't be a problem.

I'm still kinda bummed Precure never made it to the states.... See these are the sad times we live in, 10-15 years ago any shonen or Magical girl anime could have made it on TV or at least to home video no problem, these days, not so much.... *sigh*

Well, it did make it to Canada at least, with all the typical heavy localization kids shows are known for, like changing the girls to American names and totally censoring transformation scenes:

Oh I know, I was actually jealous of Canada, still am, heavy Americanization or not, I would have loved for it to have gotten a brief stint on U.S. TV.

Oh well, I guess theres always streams.. I know Funimation used to have the first series up.

Also since Discotek seems to have a fairly good relationship with Toei, I wonder if they would ever consider getting the series, at this point a sub-only release would be fine & dandy with me.

But i'm rambling, so I digress.

Actually, it wasn't all that censored.

They kept the majority of the show intact. The only explicit things they changed were character names and maybe one or two scenes in the actual show. Otherwise, it's a pretty solid localization.

They even had a Translator and a Script Adaptor and assistance from Toei with the English version.

I think people are just preoccupied with the fact that they took out the nude-silhouette beginning part of the transformation sequences (though I doubt that the editors had that much work to do, since after an episode or two, that shot gets cut even out of the Japanese version to save for time!)

There are still chunks of the franchise without even fansubs. That said, I recall reading somewhere that Toei's commissioned English subtitles of the whole shebang for other-language dubs, so they could unleash it in its entirety today if they felt like it.

I didn't think that reference to WW2 would work well so far away from the fronts. Even if the Aleutian battles did such heavy damage, not many people live there.

It's only Gogo that's left now and that's, like, half finished.

Well to be honest, Go Go was relatively poor follow up to its prequel and not to mention that Smile is now doing everything that Yes! did but better.

Seriously they need to just stop. Even if it is popular it is just such a rehash and I would like something new.
