Dear Netflix

Glitter Force is not a "Netflix Original".  It's a bastardised version of season nine of Pretty Cure

Speaking of which, Pretty Cure is up to season 13 with no signs of slowing.  Unfortunately only the first season is worth watching unless you're a girl between the ages of five and ten.  With the second season they narrowed their target audience, and since then their targeting has become laser-precise.  But on the fourth hand, the franchise is a massive commercial success, so I can't exactly blame them for that.

Season one - the real Pretty Cure - was directed by Daisuke Nishio, who also directed the little-known Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z.  It's a lot more action-oriented than the later seasons, and that would go a long way to explain why.

I've never watched any of Pretty Cure, but I had the impression that each season had an entirely new set of Cures, replacing the previous set. Is that right?

At this point the alumni number something like a hundred; I saw a fan picture of all of them and it was immense.

2 Also, wasn't there a movie that brought all the older Cures back together again?

3 Of thirteen seasons, I think only two directly continue from the previous season; all the rest switch out the entire cast.  (Season two has the same cast as season one, but isn't nearly as good.)

And yes, Pretty Cure All Stars brings the casts of various seasons together.  Not just a movie though - there's nine or ten of them, plus thirteen movies with just the cast of one particular season.  This thing is huge.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
