HappinessCharge Precure's 1st Ad Showcases New Heroines
posted on by Egan Loo
The first commercial for this year's new Precure television anime, HappinessCharge Precure!, aired during Sunday's episode of the current Dokidoki! Precure anime. The ad introduces the two main lead characters, Cure Lovely/Megumi Aino voiced by Megumi Nakajima and Cure Princess/Hime voiced by Megumi Han. Haruka Tomatsu and Naoko Matsui will also play Cure Fortune and the fairy Ribbon, respectively.
In the story, the Illusionary Empire led by Queen Mirage has begun attacking Earth. The Precure teams that are on every continent of the world fend off the rampaging Saiaaku, and word spreads on global television news about the Precure girls who fight for humanity. "Precure" becomes a well-known word throughout the world.
Hime, the princess of the Blue Sky Kingdom that was invaded by the Saiaaku, fled to Japan. Hime was ordered by the Blue Sky Kingdom's deity Blue to fight as a Precure girl, but even though she became a Precure girl, she simply fled. Blue advises Hime to look for Precure friends, and gives the Crystal of Love. With this crystal, one can be led to a partner. To the shy Hime, this is a convenient item. However, Hime has no idea how to use it, and she lobs the Crystal of Love, saying, "Whoever this hits is my friend!" As it turns out, the crystal strikes Megumi Aino….
Cure Fortune is an aloof Precure girl whose true identity is unknown. With her strong sense of duty and excellent fighting prowess, she can take on wave after wave of the Saiaaku enemies by herself.
Ribbon is an aide to Hime and the partner fairy to Cure Lovely and Cure Princess.
The weekly series will premiere on Sunday, February 2 at 8:30 a.m. on ABC, TV Asahi, and affiliates.
