As a male who's named Mackenzie, I have to hope this doesn't take off or I'll never hear the end of it. Razz

Strange they didn't localize the "Doki Doki" part of the title. So I guess Toei is doing this without Saban, wonder if it will be uncut?

To anyone wondering, Saban is attached to this. They finished production of doki doki before the announcement of giving the rights of glitter force to toei. It's much of the first season.

Can someone fix the ANNcyclopedia entry for this anime? For some reason it now has the Glitter Force one as primary title instead of the PreCure one. Smile PreCure kept the proper title, so I'm not sure how this one went worng.

Happens all the time in dubs, some theorize companies are paid by the change.

Oh great, another diasterpeace, this can be compared to how Puyo Puyo and Panel de Pon was treated for almost a decade outside of Japan on consoles. Seriously, this should not be happening in this day and age.

Anachronistic edits aside, this is some weird casting. I love Debi Derryberry, but she's the last person I'd expect to be the lead here.

It is rather amusing. Heck, Stephanie Sheh now plays an experienced, seasoned magical girl, and Cassandra Lee finally gets to play one instead of trolling them to despair. Laughing

You'd be surprised. Most people know her for her Jimmy Neutron voice, but she has proven to be capable of doing distinctly female voices, too. Listen to her as the girl Alois from that old anime movie called The Dog of Flanders. She also does Diana in Sailor Moon Crystal too, though I haven't heard her performance in that one.

I can hope for now is Toei learned their lesson and don't do another Precure series as Glitter force
