general How did you first get interested in Precure?

Recommended Posts

The first series I watched was Smile Pretty Cure! My best friend introduced me to the Pretty Cure franchise, and it was love. 
I love the wonderful, happy feeling the seasons give you, but when things get dark, they manage to pull it off! The heroes are strong, independant role models, and it seems like many people (both children, and adults!) can relate to the characters!
Every season is fresh and creative, but I like that the plot sometimes follows the same line as the last. The lead role (usually pink) never seems to be overpowered, in that of a "Mary Sue". Smile Pretty Cure is still my favorite to this day :)

To be honest, I didn't even know what Precure was until I saw Glitter Force. I thought that it was a literal "Netflix Original" at first. But then I found it was Precure and I began looking at the other series'

Next thing you know, I'm in love with the franchise.

I may have heard the words Pretty Cure and Precure once in a while before watching Glitter Force but I don't remember.

Boy its been sooo long.  It started during the teen episodes of Splash; I don't remember exactly which.  While visiting one of my parents friends, their daughter was watching it and I found it very interesting.  I asked for the name and she told me Pretty Cure Star Splash.  They used a longer english name which later got shortened to Precure.   I don't speak Japanese but since I was young enough, after a while I kind of understood what they were saying.  I particularly liked their core values: do not give up, always do your best, fight on, stand up for the people you love and no matter how bad the situation is there is almost always a way out.  I owe them quite a lot.  It changed my attitude, made me more confident and raised my grades.

It all started with Sailor Moon back in the 90's. I've always been a Magical Girl fan. My friends would look at me like I was gay when I said something like "Have you seen Full Moon?" Around 2006 I discovered Pretty Cure and have been a fan ever since.

To be honest, I grew up watching Magical girl anime, like Minky Momo, Creamy Mami, Lalabel and Tickle, so I was always watching new mahou shoujo shows.

 

I was currently going through the newest incarnation of Comet-san at the time when a new show was announced, - Futari wa Pretty Cure!  it looked awesome -like girls who knew how to fight.  Not to mention, I was a sucker for yuri romance, and it was just so easy to see Nagisa and Honoka together, with all the handholding they did. :)

 

The fights were excellent, and they didn't need any guy to come in and throw a rose to save them!  Nope! From the very beginning they were on their own, and just had to learn to adapt.

 

I admit, I was a bit let down after season 2 when Splash Star came out and I felt it was a rip off of Futari wa, and then when Pretty Cure 5 came out, I thought it was a rip off of Sailor Moon. (I've since gone through both of them completely, and know it's not true of course) Either way, sadly, I turned my back on Pretty Cure.

 

Then... Erika happened! A friend brought me the first 5 episodes of Heartcatch and I was hooked again! I devoured Heartcatch fully, Watched Fresh, and then Suite came, and there was no going back. I have found different things to love in every Precure team, although eventually the "Go! Princess Precure" team became the one deepest in my heart. (for now anyways).  

 

Anyways, I've now seen all of the Cure shows and am a complete Precure Slave... I have traded my soul for Precure Merchandise, and when I die, my sould will become the property of Bibury and Iru.  BLISS! :D
