Sorry I had an opinion.

I don't care much for the "Prekatsu" designs, but I'm sure that the rest of the series will be better.


Or maybe we could just wait for more information before leaping to ridiculous conclusions.


What do you mean "ridiculous conclusions"?


That the mere presence of vests indicates that they are idols.

I didn't state that they were idols, I said that they looked like idols. Perhaps that's an indication to how much typical idol costumes try to emulate magical girl outfits?

There's nothing wrong with discussing something that we're interested in. Most people don't argue for the sake of arguing.

I love these new designs! Cure Princess has now become my 2nd favorite Blue Cure design (Cure Marine of course taking the top spot)

Cure Lovely's nice too. I wish she had maybe a cute little hat to match Princess' crown but that's what fanart is for Anime hyper

I wonder what the overall theme will be~

I didn't like DokiDoki's designs much at all because each cure had a different looking uniform, but these look much more complimentary.

I really hope this isn't a rehash of Heartcatch Precure!....

I really hope is IS. Heartcatch was by far the best season. For one... dead people STAYED DEAD.

Rehash means using the exact same ideas over again.

Dead people staying dead can occur independent of that.

They sure do look like Pretty Cure designs to me. Well, that's another batch of doujins to wait for, Precure's always such a hot topic.

By "ridiculous conclusions" he means "any opinion that doesn't line up 100% with my own".

This is an anime forum, and less specifically, a nerd forum. Nerds tend to spend pages of virtual ink arguing about EVERYTHING.

I always doubt Precure designs the first time I see them but then end up loving them.

Can't wait to see their civilian personas.

There alter ego names are contextually from a foreign language, it would be much more cliché if they were named after colors like Shiro and Kuro. (oh god Cure Kuro)

As for the costumes, they don't bother me as they seem to be annoying some people, though certainly I can see the Idol look that people are pointing out, then again ever closer since Fresh season Precure has had a 3d CG dance and music number, so why not just make the costumes' be made after an Idol when you make them dance like Idol's anyway?

Something that I do notice is that there hair, other than being crazy long, isn't overly stylized as the previous few seasons.

And hell yeah I would buy a 3ds cover of Precure for my XL 3DS (assuming the pricing isn't ridiculous)

"They look like idols..."

And what Cure doesn't?
Idols are HUGELY popular with little girls in Japan. When little girls see PreCure, the same fashion sense gathers their interest. This isn't a coincidence or a flaw or unoriginality, people. This is active, intentional marketing. It's basically PreCure tradition. And for those who know the history of Magical Girls, it should come as no surprise. Especially when you consider that part of the evolution of the evil-fighting Magical Girl genre came directly from the Magical Girl genre where little girls used transformation items to turn themselves into whatever they desired, which was frequently an idol. Along the way, they gained their own recognition and following, semi-separating themselves from their previous iterations, but they still kept the popular fashion sense. Albeit somewhat updated to appeal to more modern audiences.

In other words, the whole Magical Girl genre we know best in the West today basically came from the popularity of transforming, crime-fighting idols. Literally. =P

I think it's because most knowledge of mahou shoujo extends to Meduka or Sailor Moon. Creamy Mami was about transforming into an idol, and Pastel Yumi has Magical Idol right in the show's title.
