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.

Smile Precure was the very first anime I ever watched. I was pretty young when it first came out, and it was later dubbed and localized as Glitter Force on Netflix. A lot of people bash on dubs, so this one is no exception. After all, the localization also resulted in a ton of episodes being removed from the run. So, obviously, the dub isn’t well-received by Precure fans. However, I have to say that I really love the dub. I just love this anime in general. It is just the perfect magical girl show with tons of lighthearted slice of life moments and action-packed ...

Mixed Feelings
The theme for this Precure season is Fairytales! Stories like Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel, Momotaro, etc. Can this season replicate that kind of magic?

1) zero creativity in monster design. Every single monster is copy and paste. The first enemy is every enemy for 99% of the episodes.
2) the animation is usually consistent except for some rare occasions

1) unlike every season of Precure up to this one, the seiyuus cast have been very experienced with tons of roles and popularity. This one decided to mix legendary seiyuus with less experienced ones. This is not a complaint just something I ...

To begin the final rating of Smile, I'm going to begin by stating that the season quality has been inconsistent as a whole, which can make this type of analysis somewhat difficult; there are an equal number of moments from the plot that are both highly remarkable (even for a franchise such as Precure) as the number of moments that makes one wonder where exactly they were heading with this season. To begin with, it seems that a lot of elements from the series had potential which never saw the light of day, or rather, weren't accurately touched upon in an in-depth manner. For instance, ...
