I'm always up for some good Aoi Yuuki noises in Precure.

Ooo, Aoi Yuuki is the lead! I wonder if this magical girl will become a God too...

And Machico is singing! Her singing is so bright and cheerful, she's a great choice!

I wonder if there will be a 4th. With that starting combination it could either be a red themed villain turned cure, or it could a purple themed loner who was already a cure before the rest of them.

Can't say no to Aoi Yuki voicing a Precure for a year and so! Now if only they decided to do some casting stunt and get Chiwa Saito to voice the "4th Precure." Surprised

I have to say, if this Precure season is going to have more of an environmental bent to it, it's going to seem rather ironic that it's going to generate a ton more plastic toys with their at least 1 year shelf life (unless they have a toy recycling program).

Toei is just recycling Kamen Rider premises now.(this time it's similar to Ex-Aid. I want to see the girls say Fourze's catch phrase at least once) Though modern magical girls as we know them owe their existence entire existence to Ishinomori. When you've been in the business as long as they have you can reference yourself.

Aoi Yūki voicing a Precure is long overdue.

Unless they're also powered up by video games, I wouldn't call this recycled from Ex-Aid just because they're medical personnel.


Cure Sparkle is easily my favorite looking yellow in a long time, though.

If by long time we mean since Kira, then I agree with Sparkle being my favorite yellow design.
Anywas I would have been glad for Aoi Yuuki voicing a PreCure a few years ago, but I didn't like any of her recent roles, so I fell out of being Yuuki's fan.

Custard was cute, but the last one I adored was Twinkle

The concept is good and all, but I'm starting to notice some...recycling. Whilest Pegitan and Nyatoran look cute like most Precure mascots, Rapirin just looks like a clone of Sharuru (though Rapirin looks much cuter), and Cure Grace with the bunny theme looks too similar to Cure Whip (this isn't the first time Toei's recycled/lazily reused Pink Cure color schemes), sans the bunny ears and tail, and for the dog mascot, don't we already have Pafu and Pekorin?

But the animation looks good, it's nice to see the mascot in the transformation device thing again (haven't seen that since Splash Star and Doki Doki), and this looks like it'll use the whole animal theme better than Kira Kira (that season in my eyes felt like a poor fanfiction/fan spin off of Tokyo Mew Mew, which is saying something as both did have different plots despite both having to do with desserts and animals).

But one more question I'm wondering is, when are we gonna get the franchise, all of it, shows, movies, etc., in the states? Only closest thing to that is a convention I went to that sold some stuff.

I like the character designs, the story seems to be ok for what it is, but I still hope it's not too preachy though.

Yeah, we wouldn't want to get a "Cure Planet", if you catch my drift.
