Heartcatch PreCure is a wonderful series, and is the best-received show in the franchise from viewers outside of the PreCure fandom. It initially stars two girls, Tsubomi Hanasaki/Cure Blossom and Erika Kurumi/Cure Marine, but introduces a third and fourth PreCure as the show progresses. It combines the fantastic signature art style and character designs of Yoshihiko Umakoshi (Casshern Sins, Mushishi, Ojamajo Doremi) with a creative take on the monster-of-the-week formula to emphasize the weight of its week-to-week storylines.
Heartcatch is notable for its aloof fallen PreCure, Cure Moonlight, as well as her dark counterpart, Dark PreCure. The two of them form a formidable rivalry that always results in fantastic fight choreography and animation. Those who watch Heartcatch first are in for a wonderful visual feast. This show will definitely catch its viewers’ hearts!
