Futari wa Pretty Cure!
Futari wa Pretty Cure is the first series in the franchise, and is the show that started it all. Featuring a focused cast of only two PreCure, Cures Black and White face off against the Dark Zone while developing their chemistry with each other. The two are as different as night and day, but as their namesakes are concerned, they’re simply two sides of a single duality capable of bringing about their awesome power.
Futari wa is rough around the edges with production, but there are a lot of interesting things that highlighted this show amongst other Magical Girl series at the time, and those choice elements have persisted over the course of the franchise’s life. Futari wa Pretty Cure is an enjoyable and fascinating series, and has a direct sequel called Futari wa Pretty Cure Max Heart, which introduces a third Cure-like character named Shiny Luminous.
