The second day of Smile PreCure brings us the most horrid face to ever grace the Pretty Cure franchise:
The fish-eye lens miyuki reaction face is among the most absurd renditions of an anime girl’s face in quite some time, even outside the realm of Pretty Cure. The franchise itself, renowned for its highly expressive facial depictions from characters like Erika Kurumi (Heartcatch) and Saki Hyuuga (Splash Star), completely outdid itself with this little moment from episode 13, where the class goes on a field trip to Kyoto.
The girls have their fortune read through O-mikuji, and Miyuki, who had already suffered an initial string of unlucky events, picked out daikyou (大凶), the worst possible luck.
The three shots from above have taken on a life of its own, spawning memes within the fanart community. There is even a separate pixiv tag that showcases this ridiculous animation style, with its own unbelievable variations from characters other than Miyuki, and even series other than Smile PreCure:
While other experiences from Smile PreCure may come down as ones that will have a lasting impression on my experience as a fan of the franchise, there is no single image from the show will ever top that of Daikyou Miyuki.
