Yes! Pretty Cure 5

This is the fourth instalment (and second reboot) of the Futari Wa Pretty Cure franchise.  Gone are Nagisa and Honoka (sadly) and Mipple and Mepple (thankfully).  Cure White and Cure Black are replaced with Cure Dream, Cure Rouge, Cure... Cure Lemonade?!  Oy.  I won't look up the other two to avoid spoiling the surprise.*

The original was quite a good show, though it did to some extent fall into the monster-of-the-week trap as magical girl shows so often do.  The heroines were very engaging, and the opening and closing themes kicked ass.

The sequel and reboots haven't managed the charm or originality of the first season, though it's been successful enough to run to nearly 200 episodes and several movies - as much as the entire run of Sailor Moon.

I'd give this season a miss unless you're a Pretty Cure completist or a mahou shoujo addict - or a ten-year-old Japanese girl, in which case, I must congratulate you on your grasp of the English language!

Quote almost worthy of Gir: I wish I could go to sleep at night wrapped in fried eggs!

* It's called Pretty Cure 5 not because it's season five, but because of the mandatory number of any sentai team.

I'm sorry to comment waaaay off the topic here, Pixy, but could you drop me an e-mail?  I have a couple of things to ask you, and I can't find your real address.

7 Hi WP.  At the time you wrote that first comment, the daily backup had just kicked in, and made comments run sloooow for a couple of minutes.  I'll tweak things to try to improve that.

thanks pixy,

Makes me feel better know that I have yet to complain without reason.  I feel guilty doing it anyways, but I figure this is a more direct route to notifiy you.

Randome question:   Is Ace's your highest volume blog?

9 Most months Ace is the biggest, but sometimes it's the Jawa Report.
