I'd suggest starting with the original. It is one of the best and might give you a feel of what everything else stems from if you decide to continue with any of the latter series. That's just me though.

HeartCatch or GoPre.
Futari wa would be a pretty good start, like >>30802 said, but I think it's kind of dated; depending on how you feel about older anime, it may be hard to get into.

Yeah, you know... The running joke that Shinzo Abe (Prime Minister of Japan) constantly pushes for pro-family elements in anime to spike birth rates in Japan.
>> No. 30895 [Edit]

I wouldn't be surprised.
The baby this time around is particularly annoying and needy. It's crying can apparently pause time and be heard from miles away. They spent most of one ep just hunting down a mother to shut the baby up.
It feels a bit shoehorned, but does make some sense. Little girls play with dolls after all and in many cases it might be those baby style ones. If they like seeing this sort of thing in precure however, who knows.

I'm surprised this didn't bother her at all. I guess they want to spike birth rates at any cost.

Well that was disappointing. Aside from some last ep baton passing in the past two seasons, we've never seen precure from previous seasons meet up like this outside of the movies which always felt like they existed in their own sort of canon.
It was cool seeing the strongest precure show up to completely own this enemy, but it was disappointing and kind of jarring how they were swept into the background almost as soon as they showed up. There's very little interest shown into how they got there or why, what their own experiences as precure were like, who or what they fought, what they can learn from each other, how many others are out there and so on. Instead they're treated like cousins visiting from out of town there to just hang out and not get in the way as the main characters deal with main character issues. "Who gives a shit if precure from an alternate dimension or something just fell out of the sky, our friends are having a mild disagreement of some sort." But to be fair, one of their friends is an android so I guess at this point nothing would surprise the main cast. Still, even if it is just a cheap gimmick in a show made for kids, I would have loved to see them do more with the cross over, like explore the connection between all the different precure groups and do some world building or something. The cross over movies never really touch on this and basically toss all the characters together like they're just part of a big club hanging out untill a bad guy starts trouble. Maybe I was expecting too much, but I was hoping for something here, anything, and got nothing. It does make me wonder if we'll see more of this in the future.

(and yeah I realize at the time of posting this I'm really far behind, so sue me.)

But the bad guys ended up doing the same thing, getting lumped into the other precure worlds, and having an overall grand 'ol time.

While I agree that more cross-series character bonding would be amazing, there's so god damned many of them that a single movie wouldn't give enough time to really do it justice -- which is made all that much worse when they add in a new girl and waste the entire movie on her.

What we really need is a more expanded version of all the cures split into teams by color and playing juumangi-like board games against each other.

Also, world building goes out the window in many ways just to make the crossover: it generally messes up the timelines of the series itself in order to bring back dead enemies, while at the same time using the 'old' precure attacks from the beginning/middle of their respective series inspite of the newer mid-season cure already being there.

What a crappy moral lesson. You can't and shouldn't compare emotional strength to physical strength. That fire creature deciding to live on a water planet is NOT the same thing as these girls using their physical strength to pump up that fire and working themselves to the point of collapsing. These girls did their best and have nothing to be ashamed of, especially as no one helped.

Why is it that aliens in scifi from around the world almost always have humanoid bodies with only the head being weird?
>> No. 34022 [Edit]
>>34020
It's actually highly likely they would look quite similar to us. We see in Madagascar this occurrence where animals will evolve to look similar to an animal elsewhere even though they are not actually related. It's likely advanced life would be similar with animals evolving for certain roles and then some of those evolving into human like life. They would not be exactly the same but they would be quite similar.

I'd argue that convergent evolution occurs because of a common ancestor and biosphere as well as >>34023.
>> No. 34025 [Edit]
>>34024
well that's the thing, they don't have such a common ancestor that would explain it, they are unrelated. It would not be convergent evolution if they had such a common ancestor, the definition of convergent evolution is that they share a trait or form that was not present in their nearest shared ancestor.

As for Carbon based life, it's possible. It's been proven that non-carbon based life is possible to create. However, the ability for that life to developed into advanced life and how common that kind of life would be are completely different things.
>> No. 34026 [Edit]
>>34025
What I meant to say is that ultimately all life form on earth can possibly be traced back to a single common ancestor, there is a possibility of carbon-based life form evolving elsewhere that are completely independent of life on earth and their evolutionary pathway and selection could be divergent to the ones we know. Perhaps there are certain traits that might be similar and necessary for intellectual life to form such as the use of language and a method to use tools (i.e. opposable thumb) but other than that they could have evolved very differently. I've read that dolphins could have potentially evolved to become human-like but are held back by the fact that they lack opposable thumbs.

Being underwater also has to do with it. You can't start fires there and being able to cook was a component of humans getting so smart.

Healin' Good Precure Had a really strong start.
The production design and direction felt top notch. It seemed very polished.

Felt to me like they were doing tons of callbacks to older seasons too.
The monsters seem like the Oshimaida from HUGtto! Pretty Cure. The outfit designs look like the ones from Princess precure while having a flower theme and mascots like the ones from Heart Catch.. There's a pastry van featured a few times that seems like a possible callback to the Tako Café in the original. The ocean side setting looks a lot like the one from Splash Star. The background art is styled in a way like yes precure 5. This is also the first time since the original series we've had a black haired main character, not counting dark blue/purple here. People also kept pointing out early on that the group shared the same color theme as heart catch, and princess, but I don't think that's too weird. There's probably more I'm missing.

For anyone who might be curious. Rather than having dead air during the usual time precure would air, They've been filling the time slots by reairing the season again from the start. Question is at the moment if they're going to pick back up once they get to ep 12, or if they'll delay this again due to the second outbreak in japan, and if so if they'd repeat this season a third time.

Seems Crunchy Roll Finally picked up Precure, starting with the currently airing season for now.
