This one's gonna be tasty!
that looks so cute! should i watch any other precure before this? i like foods anime, but never watched any precure before
Generally they're all self contained stories with nothing at all to do with each other.
The exception being cross over movies, but those have their own canon.
...although in this particular case the main character does make a quick appearance in the last ep of the previous season, which is the first time they've ever done that.
Still, no you don't need to watch any other precure before hand.
Protect Cure Chocolat at all costs
CURE CHOCOLAT AND CURE MACARON ARE IN LOVE!!!
She's going to spread ebola virus to Japan
I don't think I'm crazy about this Mew Mew / yumeiro patissiere mixture, or the general direction they're going with.
This sums up my feelings on the first ep.
Cure Chocolate seems like they can take care of themselves.
Is that actually a thing?
Yes. Especially anything whipped. Overmixing can destroy air bubbles in whipped eeg whites or batters, making the product denser.
I haven't watched any of the eps yet, so i'm not sure what they're making there.
sorry bro, but if they're foaming up eegs like that they're not making shortcakes. short cakes can be overmixed, but shortcakes are not made with that amount of eeg & shortcake dough is a dry powdery solid, not a fluid.
because the fats shorten the protein chains, overmixing and eeg foam is impossible for most conventional kitchen gear.
the kind of cake they're making is chiffon cake or genoise or something like that.
saging for fake news in my animes
I guess they don't expect seven year olds to know the difference?
Pretty Cure☆Fake News
Shortcake and sponge cake seem interchangeable in Japanese.
Style reminds me a bit of heart catch, but without the substance.
I love the way the show looks, but I'm not sure about the rest of it. I'm enjoying it but I'm not getting a "wow, this is awesome" feeling like I did with Mahou Tsukai and GoPri.
Another cute girl gets corrupted by rock.
The Mahoutsukai movie's been subbed, y'all.
Awesome, thanks for the heads up!
And I'll protect you, Cure Chocolat!
I guess they're gonna be going full cgi with the movies now. I suppose it was just a matter of time.
Is it just me or does anyone else find the practice of taking store bought chocolate and melting it down into a different (yet similar) shape to be kind of redundant? Seems like a nice gesture, but doesn't feel like they're really 'making' anything.
It's a little strange, I guess. But you gotta figure these girls are like 13, and making candy from scratch can be very difficult.
Heh, yeah good point. Don't somewhat older girls do it too though? It's not just limited to little kids in anime after all.
Would it then not make sense for some companies to sell pre-cut/grounded chocolate specifically for that purpose? Much like cake mix that only requires eegs, water, and oil. I would assume there must be some that actually already do that, but characters are always shown in anime buying bars of chocolate and cutting it into smaller bits.
You can buy baking chocolate by the chunk in the States, and I assume in Japan, but it usually isn't sweetened. If you're in a hurry or don't know what you're doing that might still be too much work. Or maybe it's some kind of cultural thing.
It might be rash to call this season 'bad' but it is very lacking in substance and is proving to be very uninteresting and forgettable. It's also got some of the worst monsters to day, and after seven ep there's still no sign of the villains controlling them, if there are any (unless I missed them or forgot). I'd still take it over Charge at least.
Yeah. I like the food stuff and the girls are cute, but there should really be some kind of story by now. The fights aren't all that great either.
I really wanna see the characters do things other than cooking or Precureing.
I wanna see their school lives and what they're afraid of and stuff like that. and I wanna see Yukari and Akira go on a date.
Same. It's getting to be extremely boring, shallow, and repetitive.
Looks like something might finally start happening next week. This was a nice change from episodes about nothing.
This looks like it takes place in the same town as Slash Star.
That would be interesting. Outside of the All-Stars movies, previous Precure teams are very seldom mentioned.
Wow, Ichika's dad is cray-cray.
Happy birthday, Himari!
I like this character already.
Himari's adorable. I hope she starts getting some character development soon.
Gotta catch em all!
I hope these aren't going to be the enemies for the entire season. Fighting evil variation of the cookie monster every week is getting kind of old.
I assume Char Aznabel's cousin will be stepping up soon. Hopefully that will mean some some monster variety.
Finally, the plot thickens. Having the villain so close to the Precure should be pretty interesting, although I think Yukari is already wise to his bullshit. Next week's a Himari episode!
Such a cool character...
I like that there's a new OP animation. I wonder if they'll continue to change it every 4 episodes?
>I like that there's a new OP animation.
You talking about how they advertise the precure movies by showing clips of them in the OP?
i guess... this is the first pretty cure that i've watched
They always put clips of the new movie in the opening to advertise it.
Kira Kira isn't one I would recommend to people that haven't seen Precure before, but I hope you're enjoying it.
I'm enjoying it. I like that they make sweets in every episode, and talk about friendship and teamwork and things like that.
It is introducing new characters rather quickly though. As well, the recipes at the end show measurements, but how could anyone copy the recipe that quickly off the TV? Maybe there's a website where they have all the recipes listed.
There is a recipe website, but I don't know the address.
>how could anyone copy the recipe that quickly off the TV?
I kinda figured they didn't really expect anyone to actually follow along with it, rather than give an idea of how it's done. That said, there's always recording the program and playing back the segment.
>Kira Kira isn't one I would recommend to people that haven't seen Precure before,
Yeah, this is easily one of the weaker seasons so far. Hard to beat charge but this is down there along with gogo5. Best seasons to start precure with are Heart Catch, Suite, Smile. Those being back when they decided to change up the demographic and include older viewers. Now it feels like they gave up on that and went back to just focusing on kids. But hey, if people like this season then more power to em.
In addition to Smile and Heartcatch (I haven't seen Suite yet), I really enjoyed GoPri and Mahoutsukai. The original series is also a lot of fun, but it seems a bit dated to me.
Nice find anon-kun!
Paused it on a random frame and got this. Wouldn't have noticed otherwise.
Cure Chocolat's transformation scene seems a bit awkward. It's like they can't decide on what pose to take.
It looks to me like they just threw dice for craps.
