Re: Episode 1
I like the character designs here more than Suite, not as much as Heartcatch.
The way the show introduced the other four Precures-to-be bugged me, but whatever, I'll give the show a pass on the heavy handed, awkward introductions due to its intended target audience.
But "crybaby" is the defining character trait of one of them. Ugh.
Miyuki's genki klutziness and airheadedness was turned up a bit too high for my tastes. Her nervousness over her introduction was ratcheted up to ridiculous levels, having "I'm looking for happiness" as some sort of life goal is excessively cheesy even for a kids show and makes it rather hard to connect with the character, and she was just very tiring to watch for most of the episode up until she became a PreCure. And her "Look everyone, its Candy!" bit was incredibly obnoxious.
The transformation scene was decent. Not as good as Heartcatch, but at least on par with Suite.... though to be honest, I barely remember them already.
The wolf is the least silly and/or annoying PreCure villain I've met yet. He's actually menacing and comes across as at least semi-competent rather than a bumbling idiot or otherwise having some irritating character trait.
By the end of the episode, I'm not remotely able to ship her with any of the other girls. ;_;
Okay first episode, I guess. I just hope they tone down Miyuki a bit in future episodes. I liked her the first 30-60 seconds she was on screen and after she became a PreCure, but it was just too much for the rest of the episode. I suppose if nothing else, sharing screentime with the other girls will help with that.
