Re: episode 8
Aahahaha, oh god, we got to see Cure "Candy" complete with the transformation sequence. And Cure Candy's fight was actually pretty awesome.
This show has always had a good sense of humor and fun, but this episode was particularly funny. More than it should have been, given the premise of the episode.
Normally a body switch plot like this would annoy me with issues related to behavioral slip-ups, particularly with someone like Candy being put in a human body. But it actually worked really well here and the things that would normally bother me still happened (that's the entire source of the joke, after all) but weren't an issue.
The other girls' attempts to cover for Candy/"Miyuki" were actually just cute and funny, and not also cringe-inducing. I particularly liked Reika's attempt to justify "Miyuki's" work of art on the chalk board. "Um, it must symbolize fairy tails." And the whole time, Yayoi just kept hoping the whole thing was a horrible, horrible dream. <3 Yayoi
And somehow, the policebox scene with the witch was actually amusing. A scene in a PreCure series with just a villain and nameless NPC was actually worth a damn. I didn't know that was possible.
