What's on your mind?
I CAN'T DO ANYTHING ON THIS ACCOUNT!!!!!! T~T
Just to let you know, it's me, Jenna, AKA Milky Way Sweetheart, but I made a different account as for some reason I felt like closing my first one, no need to freak, though! I'll be up and running for a long time here on my second account! ;)
This was made by the same person who made the Baby Lala pictures!
The person goes by Crystal Saber, and he's actually one of my friends on Amino Apps AND YouTube! His YouTube Channel has the same name. Anyways, just look at this picture and let me know your thoughts! ;)
I'm curious, what was it that made you watch Pretty Cure?
So this is apparently going to be a thing:
It’s a new Den-O movie called Pretty Den-O Toujoi and while no details have been released at the moment, the title and style of the logo seems to be hinting at a possible Kamen Rider/Precure Crossover.
Now we’re on to Max Heart, and we get a new character transformation and Black and White’s transformation gets an upgrade. However these transformations are some of my least favorites in the series. They can be confusing and have very few redeeming points. Let’s take a closer look at each:
Dual Aura Wave - First of all there were very little actual transforming, and a whole lot of annoying close ups. A lot of the poses are unflattering and awkward. When Cure White lands and does backflip (which I feel is a bit out of character) she is distant and you can see Black quite well, it was White’s time to shine. The outfits were also changed, and for the most part looked worse then the originals, the gold earings clash with the outfits. I do however like the brighter color scheme and the fact that Black’s outfit is more modest.
Shiny Luminous - This transformation shared many of the same problems as Dual Aura Wave. Such as little transforming. The transformation is quite confusing. Hair is a major focus in this one and some of the segments are confusing, like why do we need to see both braids, one took me forever to see on the untransformed Shiny Luminous. Plus we see her bow be created, but in early scenes guess what is seen? Her bow, fully formed! Her transformation doesn’t have as clear of an ending as well, we see a lot of close ups of her face while she says the typical magical girl speeches about life and the electromagnetic spectrum.
All in all these transformations are filled flaws and ask more questions then they answer. I personally am not a fan of them, and may be my least favorite transformations in all of Pretty Cure. Thankfully next is Splash Star which I much prefer.
Ranking in order of best to worse:
I’m back! Those who saw my last installment of Taking a Look at a Cure enjoyed it, so here I am! Cure Diamond’s analysis is here!
Cure Diamond was my original favorite Cure. I loved and still love how she tries to keep Mana under control. Her personality is similar to the stereotypical blue Cure. Unfortunately, that personality is dry and bland to some people. At least sarcasm exists!
I also enjoy her rivalry with Ira (ship bias). It was fun to watch Ira get all flustered in some episodes! As a Cure, Rikka’s appearance is somewhat similar to her civilian appearance. But enough blabbering about appearance, let’s move on!
She was one of my biggest inspirations to follow my dream of being a veterinarian. (Still in middle school, can’t really follow it yet!) Episode 26 of DokiDoki Precure was my favorite episode of the entire franchise until I watched MTPC34. Rikka is very special to me, and will always have the silver medal of my favorite Cures.
Thank you all so much for reading! Sorry, this is too long. I hope you all will be back for Cure Honey!

Hello everyone. I'm need abit of an advice for uploading images. While I was adding more images for the Smile Cures and arranging them (Some of the images are in the wrong order or category), they were deleted since apparently the images are in low quality. Unfortunately, I'm not much of an artist, so I have no idea in how to upgrade them into higher quality. Here are a few samples of the images I tried to upload:
Any tips or advice to improve on these?

Here's a link to the meme tag on my PreCure sideblog on Tumblr. Yes, I made all these memes.
(my main blog is queensparklekitten, and since I posted about precure on main for a while until I made the sideblog, some of the memes will be reblogged from queensparklekitten)
(SPOILERS FOR: Heartcatch, GoPri, Fresh, also mild hugtto and dokidoki spoilers)
And Fandom doesn't let you make a title long enough to add that best girl makes a quick appearance as well... *sigh* (Kapril and her biases these days...)
In the beginning of the episode, Tsubomi, as Cure Blossom, is thanking the "hot guy" for saving her while she was in a pinch, to which he hugs her. She pushes him away, saying he is being too forward. We quickly learn that she's asleep and she has (accidentally) pushed the fairies straight into her wall. She confesses to them that she had a powerful (secret) dream. Tsubomi goes to open the door to her balcony, and Erika is on hers, in her uniform. She asks why Tsubomi isn't ready yet, as school is about to start. Tsubomi runs back inside to change, freaking out. (She forgot to set her alarm clock. I relate. Half the time, I do that.)
After Much Begging, Tsubomi is Finally Calling Erika by Her First Name, Minus "San."
This was required. Remember the previous two episodes? (This section isn't long at all, but I wanted to to include it, for obvious reasons.)
We're on school campus, and Erika is happy that Tsubomi followed her advice- to change her hairstyle into the twintails we are familiar with these days and to remove her glasses. Tsubomi says that changing her outside appearance will help her to change her on the inside, just one of the steps to change her shy and introverted personality.
After a tad of discussion, Erika insists. AGAIN. on Tsubomi calling her "Erika," and to drop the "san." Tsubomi... erm, just look at her facial expression; it says it all. She almost calls Erika "Erika-san," but catches herself in time, nearly finishing "san." Erika declares it "safe" in an umpire-style and they run into school. It's gone from " Kurumi-san" to "Erika-san" to "Erika." (NOTE: They're late. The bell has already went.)
(Was that section necessary? Yes.)
Erika Reveals She Has Had the Dream, Causing Chypre And Coffret to Reveal Themselves To Her. And the Student Council President Debuts.
"...Causing Chypre And Coffret to Reveal Themselves To Her, and Literally Beg For Her To Become The Second Pretty Cure." (LOOOOONG title had to be shortened a tad)
(And, add to that, we're not going to be using the Student Council President's name, so as to do it as the episode did it. Sorry, Episode 7 must be a thing for that to happen.)
ALSO LONG SECTION INCOMINGGGGGGG!
It's lunchtime on the school rooftop, and Erika tells Tsubomi that she had a strange dream... where someone called "Pretty Cure" was defeated. Tsubomi asks her if it was Cure Moonlight, and Erika confirms this. (Tsubomi's reaction is amazing. What is it with this series' superb reactions?) She asks Erika if Erika had the same dream (she's not a psychic, so how would she know?!?!) Chypre and Coffret then pop out of Tsubomi's bag, saying that Erika can become a Pretty Cure, as she has had the dream. Freaking out, Tsubomi glances around for other people while Erika simply stares at the fairies in shock, with a hilarious facial expression.
Tsubomi asks why they are there, then asks the more pressing matter: where's her lunch? They say her lunch isn't as important as Erika having the dream. The poor darling, you must suffer from M.C.S. (main character syndrome.) a little longer. Like, 23 more episodes.
They fly next to Erika, saying she has met the qualifications to become a Pretty Cure. Without any hesitation, Erika asks who the fairies are. Logical question. Tsubomi says they're the fairies who protect the Heart Tree. Both fairies reveal their names. Erika says Tsubomi mentioned the Heart Tree, in which she says it appeared in her dream as well.
Tsubomi tells her the dream she had while she was unconscious was real, and that she is Cure Blossom, who defeated the monster. Coffret says that he would never have thought that someone so close would be the 2nd PreCure. Erika questions herself being the next Pretty Cure, before commenting that Blossom's costume was cute. Yes, it is. HeartCatch (in my opinion and maybe in the opinion of some others) has some of the best costume designs as Cures, and some great civilian designs as well. The character designer ended up winning an award for their designs, after the cartoonish style was criticised originally.
Erika is the first of her season to remember how cute the costumes are and remark on this before she becomes a Cure, but she isn't the last. Sixth Ranger reference incoming. Or not. I've said enough here.
Snapping Erika out of her fantasy, Coffret asks her to become the 2nd PreCure. But, this is interrupted by the door opening abruptly. They hide the fairies, and then I started fangirling here.
Erika stands up, freaking out. (Erika knows that she was specifically tracked down for this reason. Serious props for going to these lengths, president.) Meanwhile, a confused Tsubomi is... confused?? And about to fall in love.
Erika is told that she hasn't turned in the member list yet, then apologizes, saying she'll turn it in this week. (Abridged ended up making a 2 weeks later joke in HPCA04.) The president then says that without a member list, club funds cannot be allocated, so please hurry. (Erika will not be terminated. Yet.)
The council leave, and Tsubomi says that the president is so cool. (Yes. The president is amazing. I'm avoiding pronouns for no reason.) Then, the fairies leap out of the bag again, and Coffret asks Erika to become a Cure. She says it sounds great, but now's not the time- she needs more members for the Fashion Club, after yet ANOTHER reminder. And that's an inference, judging by exactly how the president worded things. (PRONOUNS, YOU HAVE NOW BECOME MY WORST ENEMY!) She persuades Tsubomi to help her recruit members. Erika pulls Tsubomi away at a running pace. The fairies wonder what they should do, before deciding on talking to Cure Flower. And we don't get to see that.
Desert Apostles' Lair Debuts
The title of this section says it all, really. Sabaaku/someone will call him "Sabark" is shocked that a new PreCure has appeared, but Sasorina quickly confirms that she just became Cure Blossom, and Sasorina can defeat her on her own with her current level. Of course Sasorina didn't watch any trailers.
We Continue To Nag Erika About Becoming a Pretty Cure While She Works on Recruiting Members
(Insert Special*Colourful here)
Erika and Tsubomi interrupt the first years' lunch to advertise the Fashion Club. This doesn't go too well, so registration forms are the next tactic. No one wants one, and Tsubomi says that this class isn't any good. Erika asks a red-haired girl looking out the window (Sayaka) if she wants to join, but she says she doesn't want to join such a weak club. Erika is annoyed by this, and the duo leave before Erika annoys anyone else.
On the grass outside, they discuss further tactics, including wearing clothes from the Fairy Drop. Just don't get a dress code violation. Please. We also hear the same girl from before asking the soccer club's coach to join, but he says she is bothering their practice and leaves. She is saddened by this. Erika tries to recruit her again, but it doesn't work. It does not go well.
Under a bridge, she is sad that girls can't join the soccer club (because gender rules in the episode the president debuts. Yup. Because Toei.) and that boys and girls used to be able to play together in elementary school. She loves soccer so much and wants to play, but gender rules step in to stop her. Meanwhile, Sasorina spies her, and steals her Heart Flower and then fuses it with a soccer ball to make it a Desertrian.
And With This We Fight the Desertrian, and Introduce Erika as the Second Cure While We're At It. Also Forte Wave.
That title is long for no reason. In other words, Erika becomes the second PreCure. Done. (No, not yet.) Length is incoming.
Walking home from school, the two spy the Desertrian and Tsubomi begs Erika to become a Pretty Cure, saying she will help tomorrow. Erika says that that has nothing to do with the Fashion Club, then we see the action: the soccer ball Desertrian chasing the soccer players around. Chypre and Coffret return with the crystal, and with that Tsubomi transforms into Cure Blossom again.
Erika LOVES Blossom's outfit so much, she could rival the "KAWAIIIIIIIIII!" from the movie. Seriously. Okay, maybe not. (Definitely not.) Blossom then leaps in to battle to stop the Desertrian from hurting the soccer players. The chance that none of them saw her transform is slim, but okay.
Meanwhile, the Desertrian speaks of Sayaka's feelings and Blossom isn't doing so well against the Desertrian. From the path above, Erika is watching the battle with the fairies. After realising what Blossom does (fight to protect everyone's Heart Flowers), Erika now wants to become a Pretty Cure. The Heart Perfume reacts to her feelings, and Coffret says he knew she had what it took to become a Pretty Cure. Blossom is then slammed in to the back of the goal's net. Sasorina tells the Desertrian to beat her up, and Erika yells that she won't let Blossom be beat up. Sasorina asks who she is, and Erika introduces herself as the second PreCure.
Erika then transforms into Cure Marine. Coffret asks how she knew what to do, as he didn't teach her everything. She says that she remembers everything from her dream yesterday, and was thinking of her name since Tsubomi told her about Pretty Cure earlier.
Marine leaps in front of the goal, and Blossom is overjoyed to see her. She takes the Desertrian on, and lands some punches. She then kicks the Desertrian, land on the ground, and uses Marine Shoot against it, knocking it over. That's the first sub attack you'll see, and how she knew how to use it, I don't know. Coffret then flies in next to her, and tells her to take Sayaka's Heart Flower back.
Marine uses the Blue Forte Wave, which is unleashed on the Desertrian, purifying it and freeing the Heart Flower. Sasorina then says she will be Marine's opponent, and Blossom steps in, and the duo say that they will be her opponents, should she keep this up. Sasorina then teleports away, leaving the Cures to turn Sayaka back to normal.
Sayaka wakes up on the ground, and Tsubomi tells her she practiced too hard and fell down where she is. Her soccer ball is handed back to her, and Sayaka is rather quiet. She then says that she had this dream, (because Desertrian) where she turned into a soccer ball monster and was wreaking havoc. Not too far off, actually.
She says that she was wrong- she thought her passion for soccer would have to dwindle down as she was a girl who wanted to play in middle school. Sayaka then says that she will make her own girls' soccer club, thanks the duo, and runs off.
This episode's Hanakotoba is the poinsettia, which represents passion. A red Heart Seed makes its way into the Heart Pot, making it the second Heart Seed collected. Will we fill it and cure (no pun there) the Heart Tree, now that there are two Pretty Cures? Stay tuned for more!
Walking home, Erika shows Tsubomi the doll from the previous episode, which she has fixed up. The child who it belongs to and her mother are passing by, and they return the doll to her. The child thanks Erika for rescuing her doll, and then she and her mother keep walking.
After this, Tsubomi tells Erika that they will do their best as Pretty Cures from now on. Erika says that she will also do her best in recruiting members. They are famished, and head to a crepe store on their way home.
OVERALL, a fun episode that introduces the second Cure. It's interesting how Erika said "not now" earlier in the episode, but didn't refuse to join Blossom. Now they're a duo, and what lies in their future? Keep watching for more!
NEXT UP: Will the girls' partnership stand the test of Tsubomi's clumsiness, or will the duo be gone that quickly~~?! And a new attack appears: Pretty Cure, Floral Power Fortissimo!
