To teenager Miyuki Hoshizora, fairy tales are a world of wondrous encounters and happy endings. Inspired by her love for these stories, she lives every day searching for happiness. While running late on her first day of school as a transfer student, Miyuki meets Candy—a mysterious fairy from the world of fairy tales, Märchenland. However, when Candy disappears as quickly as she appeared, Miyuki is left believing the encounter was only a dream.

After an eventful first day, Miyuki finds a mysterious library at school. While combing through the bookshelves, she is transported next to Candy, who claims to be searching for the so-called legendary warriors, Precure. When forced to protect Candy's and everyone else's happiness, Miyuki transforms into "Cure Happy," one of the Precure warriors! As Cure Happy, Miyuki is now tasked with finding the other legendary warriors and protecting the world from destruction, all while possibly discovering her very own happy ending.

Please bear with me as this is my first review for this site.

Smile Pretty Cure is among the best in the franchise alongside Heartcatch and the original Futari Wa Pretty Cure not because it tries to outshine them but rather it explores our imaginations and emotions like the way Disney would. Case in point, it asks its viewers (both children and young adults) "What is happiness? Where does it come from? Why are dreams and goals so important in the grand scheme of happiness? What do friends have to do with being happy?" These are very deep questions, even for young men to bear; but ...

The show is enjoyable for what it is, but don't expect too much. It's just a cutesy group of friends doing the same thing over and over again. It does start to pick up in the last few episodes and some actual plot starts to come into play, but it's really not all too high-stakes.

I'd started watching it for the first time when I was about 13 or so, and I was definitely more invested back then, but I was still able to enjoy watching it now.

This is one of many Precure series, there are about 500 episodes in all. If you enjoy this ...

Smile Precure, known on Netflix as Glitter Force, is the most overrated Precure series. I pity those who have this one as their first Pretty Cure show, because it is among the worst. The characters are generic and forgettable, and there are absolutely no mature messages. There’s just a furry that everyone pairs with the characters, who are little girls.

• The most well written character is Cure Peace, but she’s only well-written in one episode. That one episode explains how she has had to struggle being raised by a single mother and how her father’s death affected her. But after that ONE episode, never ...
