Synopsis

Once upon a time, there was a kingdom of fairy tales called "Märchenland," where many fairy tale characters live together in joy. Suddenly, the evil emperor Pierrot made an invasion on Märchenland, sealing its Queen in the process. To revive the Queen, the symbol of happiness called Cure Decor, "the Queen's scattered power of light of happiness," is required. To collect the Cure Decor, a fairy named Candy searches for the Pretty Cures on Earth. There, Candy meets a girl, who decides to collect the Cure Decor. Now, will the world earn a "happy ending"?

Sugar, spice, and everything nice; these are words commonly associated with Toei’s Pretty Cure franchise. Though understandable, this franchise has garnered criticism for its stagnant plot formulas, characters, and juvenile themes. Unfolding in an identical manner to many traditional magical girl tales, Smile Precure perhaps gives the initial impression that it is just another fish lost in the sea of mass consumerism. However, with just a sprinkle of creativity dust, this installment proves that it is still possible (with no pun intended) to transform a standard formula into something possessing a certain charm of its own.

Have you ever watched a show that is so clearly just trying to have as much fun as possible? That is for the most part so light and fluffy that it doesn’t have a care in the world? That’s the type of show Smile Precure is.

Miyuki Hoshizora and her friends Akane, Yayoi, Nao, and Reika have been enlisted as Pretty Cure to help Candy, the fairy from Marchenland, resurrect the Royal Queen who sacrificed herself to stop the evil Pierrot of the Bad End Kingdom from painting a bad end across the world. Pretty Cure must collect the various decor that hold the Queens read more

I've watched a good number of magical girl series in my 12+ years of watching anime. It's probably one of my favorite genres, tied with shonen and sci-fi. Some of these shows are just fun, some are profound, some are classics in the genre.

Smile Precure isn't any of those.

Story (3/10): If you've ever traversed near the Kamer Rider fandom, you've probably heard the meme 'Decade has no story'. That's as close a descriptor to Smile if I've ever heard one. Also, it's fairly ironic, considering that that show was also written by the same person that wrote Smile (well...the second half, but easily the worst read more
