Ahh April Fool’s. I even wrote my own post for that. Yayoi got the brilliant idea to tell Miyuki that she’s transferring soon, but Miyuki ran off before she could say it was a joke. Honestly, I don’t know who I blame more for this mess. The whole group catches wind of the lie, and everyone tries to comfort Yayoi – who was too quiet and shy to be able to tell them to stop talking and explain that it was a lie. Continue reading


Smile Precure 08: Beware of Rings

The Freaky Friday Flip episode! A pair of rings swap Miyuki and Candy’s minds into each other’s bodies, and hilarity ensues. One can only question the logic of trying to have Candy pass as Miyuki at school instead of just returning home. Candy makes an absolute fool of Miyuki in every class, utterly destroying her reputation, failing her tests and giving her a bunch of extra homework to do. It was funny at first, then it just made me cringe (I have a fear of embarrassing situations). Continue reading


Smile Precure 06: DecorCEPTION. But Really, Great Episode!

So you take the Cure Decor, and put them inside the Decor Decor, which then goes into the Decor Decor Cure before going into the Decor Decor De- well you get my point. Decor Decor = possibly dumbest name for a toy, where’d the awesome names like Cure Module or Blossom Tact go?!!?!? Anyways…

This was such a great episode! We finally get to see the 5 characters interact together as one group, as well as their combined transformation sequence. The episode also introduced us to a few new characters, and explained the backstory of what happened before the show started. I also really like the stylistic choices they made here. Continue reading


Smile Precure 05: Finally, Cure Beauty!

Kyaaaaaaaaaaaaaa~ Reika<3 after waiting for a month, she finally gets her episode! As many of you probably know by now (considering I never shut up about it), she’s my favorite of the Cures this season. I love elegant ojou-samas ^^ but I’ll leave most of the fangirling for later.  Continue reading


Smile Precure 04: Banchou!

Nao-banchou-sama! Krizzly was hyped about this character since before the show started airing, because she’s voiced by Marina Inoue (Yozora of Haganai). She was my second favorite Cure in this series judging from the character profiles and descriptions, but things might get shuffled around next episode when Reika (Cure Beauty, my favorite Cure based on descriptions) gets her featured episode.  Continue reading


12 Days of Anime, Day 2: Year of Mahou Shoujos

Infinite Hope and Infinite Love

I came across a few mahou shoujo shows before this year, but they were minor and easily forgettable. There were several shows that I watched in 2011 – most didn’t air this year, but this is the year that I came across them. The year opened with the big hit Madoka Magica, with a fanbase that soared way past critical mass after the 3rd episode. GGGGGGGGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII (psst, that’s the

wrong name) (what) (it’s Mami) (oh) MAMIIIIIII!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (wait who’s Mami?)
