Netflix Premieres Glitter Force Doki Doki Anime Streaming (Update)
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Netflix began streaming the first 15 episodes of Glitter Force Doki Doki, its localized version of the Dokidoki! Precure television anime, on Friday. As with the first Glitter Force series, some content has been cut: the first 15 episodes of Glitter Force Doki Doki take the story up to the original anime's episode 21.
The dub stars Debi Derryberry, Cassandra Morris, Melissa Fahn, Stephanie Sheh, and Erica Lindbeck. Blush performed a new version of the Glitter Force theme song as well as the ending theme song "You and I."
The lead characters are renamed Maya/Glitter Heart (Mana/Cure Heart), Rachel/Cure Diamond (Rikka/Cure Diamond), Clara/Glitter Clover (Alice/Cure Rosetta), and Mackenzie/Glitter Spade (Makoto/Cure Sword). Netflix describes the story:
Four girls summon their inner superheroes to defend Earth and the magical kingdom of Splendorius from King Mercenare and his minions.
The 49-episode Dokidoki! Precure television anime ran from 2013-2014 as the next series in the Precure franchise after Smile Precure!, which Saban Brands localized as Glitter Force.
The first season of Glitter Force premiered in December 2015 and the second season, covering the second half of Smile Precure!, premiered in August 2016. The trademark for "Glitter Force" has since moved from Saban Brands to Toei Animation, but Saban Brands is still credited with production on Glitter Force Doki Doki.
