    The final two Twisted Wonderland fancures! The girl on the left is Cure Eidenai and she's the cure for Ignihyde. Her design reminds me of the Cyber set from Love Live, and I just think she looks really cute. The girl on the right is Cure Briar and she is the cure for Diasomnia. She's the only member on her team who is not from earth or human. She's is a fae and grew up in Briar Valley, so she is the most skilled (magic wise) out of her team. Hope you've enjoyed these cures so far and I'll have more to share about them later!

    think you'll get around to watching the pretty cure all stars movies? it's pretty understandable if you don't, considering it's a series of crossovers between the cures from each season. though, if you're willing to give it a go, i'd say there's little major continuity lockout asides from spoiling mid-season cures from seasons that've finished by the time a movie rolls out.

    I decided to check out the first three, seeing how it’s a trilogy.

    Precure All Stars DX

    This one’s a crossover between the first four teams: Team Fresh, Team Five, Team Splash Star, and the OG Team. Granted, they take their sweet-ass time to actually get together. This is a 65-minute movie, and we don’t see two teams fighting together at the same time until the 45-minute mark. Of course, I’m not exactly complaining, as we still get to see them fight, and the slow assembly is pretty cool.

    The first half pretty much introduces the old teams to the audience like myself going to places usually frequented by another team. Team Five stops at the takoyaki truck the OG team likes to go to, the OG Team gets some chocolate cornets from the bakery run by the parents of one of Team Splash Star’s members, and Team Splash Star goes to the accessory shop owned by the fairy allies of Team Five. It seems like padding at first, but it leads to a pretty wholesome scene where all the Cures reflect on how similar they are towards the end, kind of like that scene in Batman vs. Superman if actual effort was placed into it.

    The villain of the movie, Fusion, is also really cool. He’s basically this amalgamation of the monsters defeated by the Cures who wants to absorb their powers, engaging them by taking on the forms of past monsters that he’s somehow. He even manages to capture Chiffon, though it’s unclear if he knows that she’s really Infinity or not.

    Things get better towards the end, because the final battle with Fusion is just awesome. There are so many creative action sequences that really take advantage of the sheer scale of the conflict with this small army of magical girls taking on a giant monster. I especially loved this one bit where this one veteran Cure, Milky Rose (not sure why she isn’t called Cure Rose, but that’s just me), punches a huge hole in the ground just to disorient Fusion with, and you can just feel the impact. The whole climax is just a pure spectacle for the eyes.

    The only other problem I had was that I thought the current team didn’t get to do much due to being captured by Fusion and not getting nearly as much screentime as the veterans, but I still thought it was a pretty good movie.

    Precure All Stars DX2

    This movie centers around an amusement part owned by the Cures’ fairy companions, where everyone plans to celebrate something called the Rainbow Jewel, which a new threat, Bottom, wants to seize for himself.

    This one’s a direct sequel that follows Team Heartcatch in their early days, back when it was just Tsubomi and Erika. I say this because unlike the last movie (which was set just as early judging from the absence of Team Fresh’s weapons), you can really tell the writers didn’t have a lot to work off with Tsubomi and Erika. Not only does Tsubomi act more energetically in some scenes while Erika plays the straight man, a far cry from their usual dynamic, there’s another scene where they’re confused at the existence of past Cures... when both of them should know that when not only have they dreamed of Cure Moonlight, they know that Tsubomi’s grandma used to be a Precure.

    Other than that, the movie’s plot is somewhat similar, though obviously, the stakes are far higher. I like how the actual team-up is set up far quicker than the last one. It only takes until the 23-minute mark to see all seventeen Cures together. I also like how instead of Fusion taking on multiple forms to engage the Cures with, he revives several past villains to form his own Legion of Doom, while one of the old villains destroys the bridge connecting the amusement park to the road, essentially stranding the Cures there.

    Things get even more tense when right as the Cures unite, Bottom ambushes them, causing them to get separated in the process. There was something like this in the last movie where all of the fairies were away and talking about how to stop Fusion, so it seemed like when Fusion tried to attack some of the past Cures whose powers are dependent on their fairy allies, it would be bad... until the fairies conveniently showed up anyway. This movie really plays this aspect up for drama, as Tsubomi and Erika get separated from Chypre and Coffret, and can’t transform while having the OG Team’s fairies, Mepple and Mipple, so this is bad for both the oldest and most recent teams. Even when Tsubomi and Erika get their fairy partners back, they still need to get Mepple and Mipple back to their predecessors while the other teams help hold off any villains who get in their way. It’s a really cool sequence of events that gives each team a chance to shine.

    Even Team Heartcatch actually gets to do stuff, as they’re the first to directly engage Bottom before being backed up by the other teams and the Miracle Lights which supercharge all of their powers.

    Even the ending credits were a blast to watch, essentially serving as an anthem for all the teams getting to dance to their theme songs.

    Overall, I think it’s just as good as the first one, with a few improvements in other aspects.

    Precure All Stars DX3

    This film is essentially Precure: Endgame with how high the stakes are. They seriously went from fighting an amalgamation of the past monsters to the literal God of Evil, Black Hole. Okay, technically, he was created from the spirits of all the past villain groups (think Fusion on steroids), but with the sheer scale of the conflict being to stop the Earth itself from being consumed by Black Hole, the Cures might as well be fighting a god.

    This movie just doesn't screw around, as it shows realities bleeding into each other as a result of Black Hole's mere presence, and there's another team of past villains to lead the charge who do the smart thing and immediately separate the Cures, trapping them in pocket dimensions with armies of monsters to face. It's a really clever way to show some interesting character dynamics, as all the Cures are grouped into teams that make it hard for them to work together. The Pinks are in one team and can't really work together due to each of them trying to take charge, the Blues, Whites, and one Green are in another team and can't come up with a plan without a consistent leader like the Pinks can, and the rest are clearly overwhelmed by the villain's board game that's rigged against them. Yes, I just said that.

    The climax has a lot more emotional weight to it, as there's the chance that all the fairy allies will have to leave Earth after channeling the rest of the Prism Flower's power to give the Cures their powers back as an absolute last resort. As soon as everyone figures this out, they all break down crying, but they all realize that they have no choice but to press on. I don't even know half of these characters, but I can totally see how hard this is for them. Hell, the sequence where they got their powers back managed to make the Miracle Lights look cool, leading to a final attack to rival the Giga Drill Break in terms of sheer awesomeness.

    Of course, the fairies come back, but I'm imagining Yuri was going to cling to her magic jar like in that one episode of Heartcatch, considering her fairy was the only one to stay dead.

    Overall, even though I'm sure a lot of these references flew over my head, I still thought these were some really good movies. From most of the references I did get, I could clearly tell there was a lot of effort put into writing these crossovers born from a clear understanding of the Precure franchise. It didn't just focus on mindless action and all these magical girls teaming up. It went out of its way to showcase each Cure in a grand story that feels like a celebration of the franchise, while still providing some spectacular fight scenes.

    If only the people at another of Toei's TV divisions took the success of this trilogy into consideration when working on a certain other big crossover film that would hit theaters the very next year...

    The Definition of "Always"

    "But are you sure you're okay?" Nagisa asked.

    "Yes," Honoka smiled again.  The two were walking home after a big battle, and Nagisa had already asked the question multiple times.  This particular battle had been especially fierce.  The enemy had separated Cure White from Cure Black, and Cure Black had had to fight her way through an army of zakenna in order to get her partner back before she disappeared.  But now the battle was done and they had to go home and pretend that nothing had happened.  It was extremely surreal, Honoka thought... but that was just how things went as Pretty Cure, she supposed.  "I'm sure that I'm fine," she stressed again, because it was true.  So far as she could tell, she was completely back to normal now.  "My hand was disappearing when I was taken, but now it's fine... you can feel that, I think."  She said that bit because Nagisa was holding onto her hand.  Very tightly.

    Nagisa squeezed her hand.  "Yeah, I guess you're right," she said.  "I was just so worried... I was really scared I wouldn't see you again."

    "We won't let that happen, I don't think," said Honoka.  "We're always going to be together."

    "Do you promise?"  Nagisa looked over at her.  Her warm eyes were full of concern.

    "Yes," Honoka said.  She believed this firmly.

    "Ugh.  I'm sorry I'm like this."  Nagisa sighed as they continued walking.

    "You don't have to be.  It was very scary."

    "I guess so," said Nagisa.

    They continued walking for a few moments.  Then Honoka said, "Nagisa?"

    "Yeah?"

    "You're squeezing my hand a little tight..."

    "Oh!  Sorry."  Nagisa let go completely.

    "Oh, Nagisa.  You didn't have to let go. " She reached out to take Nagisa's hand again, but Nagisa stopped walking and looked down.  Honoka stopped, too.  "Nagisa?"

    Nagisa threw herself at Honoka, wrapping her up in her arms tightly and burying her face into Honoka's neck.  "I was so, so scared..."

    Honoka held her.  "It's okay.  I'm here.  We're both here together."

    "I don't know what I would have done if you'd disappeared.  I don't know how to live without you anymore."

    This was a surprisingly vulnerable statement, and it touched Honoka.  "I promise we won't ever be apart," she said, stroking Nagisa's hair gently.  As she did so, she couldn't help but wonder if Nagisa truly knew what she was saying.  Did she understand the implications of telling someone that she never wanted to live without them?  She had made similar statements towards Honoka before.  In fact, just recently she had promised Honoka that they would always be together.  She'd said that while holding hands with her in bed, even.

    Was Nagisa genuinely thinking about the future when she said these things?  Did she truly mean always? Or was she just saying what was in her mind at the moment?

    Well, either way, these emotions were important ones, Honoka thought.  "I promise," she said again, a little softer this time.

    "Really?"

    "Yes."

    Nagisa pulled away just a little so she could look at Honoka.  There were tears in her eyes, Honoka noticed.  "And you're sure you're okay, right?" Nagisa pressed.  "You're not hurt or anything?  I'm just worried... maybe those people did something to you and you don't know it yet."

    "I'll keep a special lookout just in case," said Honoka.  "If I think something is wrong, I'll let you know immediately."  She reached out and took Nagisa's hands in hers.

    This seemed to satisfy Nagisa, and she sniffled as she looked down at their hands.  "Okay."

    Honoka smiled at her.  "Did you want to go out for snacks?  Maybe choco parfaits?"

    "Choco parfaits, really?" Nagisa's face lit up like a shining star.

    Honoka couldn't help but giggle at her dear Nagisa's enthusiasm.  "Let's go," she said.

    For the longest time, Pretty Cure franchise was about young girls gaining magic powers to save people. But times are changing, and the series do as well.

    We’ve seen a boy become a Cure. We have one mermaid and two aliens as Cures. Duh, we have one android Cure! Not even counting HUGtto finale that did impossible and made EVERYONE Pretty Cure!

    Well, apart from Pikario, I’m afraid.

    #JUSTICE FOR PIKARIO #CURE WAFFLE LIVES IN MY HEART #like. that was one thing that I remember really liking in Kirakira. the whole season was pretty lame for me but Cure Waffle moment was EPIC #and sometimes it just appears in my head and i go. kurna. #precure#pretty cure #kirakira pretty cure a la mode #kirakira pretty cure #pikario #jagi talks about stuff
