I was hesitant to jump into the Precure Franchise due to the large number of seasons, and how similar people said they were. I asked around for the best of all seasons. All signs pointed to Heartcatch and even now watching the very good Smile Precure, I agree that Heartcatch wins by a mile.

[ Story ]

The story is pretty typical for even a Precure season. A great evil was sealed away long ago and is returning to wreck it's own special brand of havoc on the world. Since Heartcatch is flower themed, this comes in the form of desolate wastelands, specifically of the desert variety. read more

So I go and I discover this little girls' anime, having never watched a series of Precure in my life, and I come out, after about 3 months of watching the series front to back, and I've truly become a man.

What this anime is, is about 40 episodes of filler. Filler seems to be the no-no word for an anime to be a very good anime, see anime like Naruto for instance. However, as some hallmarks of anime like Cowboy Bebop prove, filler doesn't have to make an anime bad, and can make the series even greater. This is the case with Heartcatch as read more

Story: Story has never been a strong point for any tokusatsu/magical-girl anime. This is proven again as we're treated to a fun, albeit predictable story. If you've seen Sailor Moon or Power Rangers growing up (and let's face it, who hasn't?) you know the monster-of-the-week formula by heart. Having said that there is enjoyment to be found in it's light hearted fluffy plot, assuming you don't take it too seriously.

Art: Definitely a strong point for Heartcatch. The animation is very smooth and colourful, making the series a treat for the eyes. Bright colours, explosions, Dragonball level beam-spam and fun to watch battles make up read more

Heart­catch has one massive point in its favour over every single other Pre­cure: It can do drama. It’s not stu­pid. I can’t stress enough how import­ant this is. In Heart­catch, the evil mon­sters that fight the Pre­cure are cre­ated using the waver­ing hearts of humans. What that means is every epis­ode has someone wor­ried about some­thing hap­pen­ing in their life, and the epis­ode tends to revolve around how they get over that prob­lem. Usu­ally the issue is just that they don’t have enough con­fid­ence in them­selves. A girl is afraid of talk­ing to the Stu­dent Coun­cil Pres­id­ent she admires so much because she gets all read more

They use these powers to help others.In lilpri, they spread happiness by singing while in Heartcatch Precure they fight to protect the earth from darkness.
both animes have adventures and they are fun to watch!

Heartcatch Precure is basically Casshern Sins with Magical Girls. Both have art made by the same dude. If you want good characters with awesome fight scenes these anime are for you. 
reportRecommended by ZeroBurningblade
Both have the same artstyle, both aired in the same timeslot, both are magical girl shows, and both had them collecting some sort of magic object (spelldrops in DoReMi and heart seeds in Heartcatch). 
reportRecommended by mimitchi33
The main duos in these shows are strikingly similar in that the protagonist is the quiet, low-key, and well-reserved type who needs the confidence to face the world and her partner is the loud, in-your-face, eternally optimistic, and energetic type who is the main reason why the protagonist gets out of her shell. These two shows are among the most unique representations of their respective genres with huge multiple demographic appeal. From their amazing soundtracks to their eye-catchingly amazing visuals and well-done voice acting (especially from Figure 17's English dub), both shows just scream epic and enjoyable with masterful narratives, interesting premises, and generally great  read more

Both are great, action-packed kids shows with the same animation style.
