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.

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.

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.

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]
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.
>> No. 34023 [Edit]
Assuming they're carbon-based, which is quite the assumption.
>> No. 34024 [Edit]
I'd argue that convergent evolution occurs because of a common ancestor and biosphere as well as >>34023.
>> No. 34025 [Edit]
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]
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.

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.

Yeah the movies are kind of a mess. I only got around to watching them all not that long ago. Some are fun and nice, but the majority are horrible. The world building is the least of their problems. I feel like they're an increasingly hard to pull off project each year as more and more characters get added in every time. managing 40+ characters in a single movie while ensuring they make time for all of the characters attacks and transformations and other expected elements, setting up a new story and villain, this on top of still having to work on the main series and another movie in the same year dedicated to the current season... It's amazing they can pull off what they do, even if it is a mess. borrowing just a single character from each series seems like the only logical way to go on.

It's pretty amazing how they took on this topic. Bad people love to take advantage of good people and make them feel like they themselves are bad people if they aren't letting themselves be taken advantage of. I could have sworn they were going to let the main character get used because it's the "right thing to do", after all last weeks ep portrayed her as cowardly and selfish for not giving in when she had all the reason in the world not to. It made this really hard to watch for a bit there, to see Grace get manipulated like that. It's awesome to see her stand up for herself in the end and not just take it. It's a very unexpectedly nice message to send kids, especially from something Japanese, to not just let people walk all over you. Anime tends to encourage the opposite after all.

They don't say it outright (for obvious reasons), but are about as clear as they can be without being blunt about it.

I'll explain. Pretty big spoilers here:

Nodoka, the pink precure of the season, aka Cure Grace was introduced as someone who recently recovered from being very sick before moving into town.
During the series, the villains corrupt random objects and people, which can make them corrupt other things, like a disease. The villains find they can harvest gem like objects from things they corrupted, and when used in later corrupted objects, it makes them even more powerful.
One of the villains named Daruzien decides to say what the hell and j-j-jams one of these into cure grace while fighting her.
This causes Grace/Nodoka to get sick and hospitalized just like when she was younger. After working her way though it, the evil force in her gets expelled, into the form of another villain who looks a lot like Daruzien, the one who assaulted her, just not all there. Like an unwanted pregnancy, she aborts this new creature.
It's at this point we learn that Daruzien was born from Grace/Nodoka when she was hospitalized before.
Needless to say, these two have an odd relationship at this point. Daruzien is still an evil little bastard without a shred of compassion however, and almost seems to enjoy tormenting Grace/Nodoka even more now that he learned she's essentially his mother.
(I still didn't connect the dots myself at this point, maybe because I wasn't looking for them.)
Later, Daruzien gets into some trouble with his boss, the big baddy of the series. He's in rough shape and drops in on Nodoka unexpectedly. He tells her that the only way he can heal, is if she lets him in her again. She doesn't want to and runs away while him and the framing of the show make her feel like a bad selfish person for not giving in. But after some depression and talking it over, she realizes she shouldn't feel bad for not letting that horrible person use and abuse her. She stands up for herself, and kicks his ass while telling him that her body is hers alone and no one else's.

So in short. This girl is hospitalized, gives birth. Is later assaulted, hospitalized again, gives another unwanted birth, gets an abortion, and is then guilt tripped and manipulated into letting an abusive douchebag have his way with her body, again.
Daruzien is basically an abusive stalker boyfriend and rape baby in one.

Wow. Holy shit, that sounds like really serious stuff. I'm surprised the edgy villain kid didn't do all that though.

The last ep of healin' good feels like the most lazily done baton pass ep since they started doing them. Cure Summer literally falls out of the sky, gets knocked out, and flies back into the sky a few minutes later as soon as she wakes up. Made me think "...what the fudge was the point of that?"

I wonder if Sango has 34 older brothers and sisters and her parents just suck at naming their kids?

>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.

I've got a theory about this.
What if, all precure series take place at roughly the same time?
If you look at not only the crossover movies, but the rare cameo appearances from one series to another, the characters don't look any older at all, characters from a 10+ year old series showing up in a modern one should look at least a little older right? The characters -do- in fact age after all, we've seen as much at the end of series like hugtto and maho and star twinkle.
So if these characters age normally, which they do, but show up together looking the same as they did in their original series, that alone should say something about their timeline placement.
Precure Miracle Leap, one of the most recent crossover movies, makes a reference to Kasugano, Urara while showing her looking the way she did in her series. Being a well known actress, a lot of people would notice if she never aged a day over the past ten years, not that there's any reason why she wouldn't anyway, she's just a normal human, Most precure are.

We the viewer assume it all takes place in real time, one event after another year after year, precure in one region fix a problem, then another one pops up somewhere else. But who's to say that's the case? Maybe all of japan is being attacked at roughly the same time? Why would these villain organizations take turns attacking japan anyway? If anything it would make more sense to attack during an attack somewhere else and take advantage of the distraction.
If they really did take turns, as one might assume they are, then why don't old precure help with new villains outside of crossover movies? Well, if they all take place at the same time then they can't, they're busy fighting their own bad guys.
Another thing to take note of here is that it's very hard to date these series. They don't make many real world references, there aren't cars or electronics or what have you to go off of. Unless I'm mistaken, you don't even see characters use smart phones. For all we know the current season could take place 10-20 years ago. We have no idea what year it is for any precure series.

I don't think they all start at the same time mind you. There's just a large and ever increasing overlap. One could say a few weeks go by after the first series before splash star starts, then another couple weeks and Precure 5 starts. Some time goes by, maybe a month or two and these three groups have their first meeting in "Precure All Stars GoGo Dream Live!", then go back to their own fights in their own regions. Maybe a week or two go by and so starts Fresh Precure, and soon after the events of "Precure All Stars Movie DX: Minna Tomodachi☆Kiseki no Zenin Daishuugou!" then yet again, the four groups go their separate ways and continue doing what they do with their own separate problems. And so it continues on, every couple weeks a new organization attacks a new part of japan, and it also becomes a routine tradition at some point shortly after each new group pops up they all get together to welcome them and kick some arse together.

I think this can help explain why there's no military or law enforcement involvement. These attacks are happening so often while being so wide spread, it can be hard to even keep track of. You might have Fresh and Maho fighting off monsters on monday in their individual areas, then Tropical, Splash, Heartcatch and Princess fighting monsters on Tuesday. And in Charge it was mentioned various times that there are precure all around the world fighting their own battles, all at the same time charge takes place.

This might not explain the old attacks, but this is how you can have dead enemies make appearances in later crossover movies, they aren't dead (yet).

Is that actually true? Yes 5 and Yes 5 Go Go are fantastic.

It's unfortunately true. GoGo had some of the worst ratings of any season, yet the kids absolutely loved the slog that was Max Heart. My only explanation is that Japanese children have shit taste.
>> No. 35730 [Edit]
You liked gogo while thinking heart catch is bad, and you think they're the ones with shit taste??
>> No. 35732 [Edit]
Max Heart as in the sequel to Futari Wa, not Heartcatch. And Max Heart was a bit of a slog.
>> No. 35735 [Edit]
Right sorry, don't know how I misread that. Yeah max heart really was a bit much. The inclusion of the most useless precure to date did not help out that season one bit.

Walking(hopping) around on her fins like that is probably going to leave them looking like Muromi-san's.
