Note: I wrote a more in-depth review here- http://aminoapps.com/p/stlaa
MahouTsukai Precure is not particularly a deep or plot-centric anime. I guess it could be considered your typical magical girl series. However, that's not what I'm looking for in this series. I'm looking for a cute and enjoyable magical girl show, and I'd say this fits the bill. Some Precure fans dislike it because they say it doesn't live up to it's predecessor, and some do like it, but I can't judge it on that, as this is kind of my introduction to Precure and I can't say I'm disappointed. If you want a serious, deep
mahou shoujo, then I recommend Princess Tutu or PMMM, but if you're a magical girl fan who wants an anime to pass the time, I'd say MahouTsukai is for you.
Story: Mirai a middle school girl who still carries her teddy bear accidentally finds a witch named Riko. A magical miracle happens when both of them hold their hands together as they wear same kind of linkle stone and there are 12 more which they must gather.
At first i got a feel of looking 'harry potter series 1" with only female students ( especially train station as converging point to magical world station, snail train etc). Introduction of Principal was good. For me the only character that was good in it is Maffurin ( the teddy bear) For about 20 episodes, the series was unpredictable
and creative. We wanted to see it what happens next with curiosity. There is so much adventure that can be feast to your eyes .
Art: Too good. Beautiful scenery is shown in the anime. For instance there were lot of flower garden, mythical pegasus and fairy world.
Sound: Perfect sound tracks.
But the most boring part is "transformation" scenes. It is unbearable to see a single transformation once in this kind of anime but here there are 2 levels of transformations which occupied lot of time in an episode. Villains are just dummy. There is stupidity in confusing the viewers by trying to introduce "dark magic" is different from mugic and mugic lead to dark magic concepts. It may have confused you here. But if you see the entire series.
Enjoyment: I enjoyed only the first 20 episodes ( later 6 episodes or so) as the next episodes seem to be dragging the series unnecessarily.
Overall: This shoujo anime is just for little kids to whom we want to teach the value of friendship. But for grown ups, when Mirai constantly says about Friendship in obsessive manner, it irritates. Her cries to see Riko at the End seemed unnatural and gave me the feeling of shoujo ai and awkward. I was not able to comprehend here longing for Riko alone when there is Haa-chan too. For me that spoiled my interest in the series.
The beautiful Witch Liko are crash landing in to the sakura trees on a calm night when the full moon are at its highest point on the night sky. In a distance Mirai stand witness and mistaken it for a falling star,, What she don't know is that this "star" is going to brighten up her life more than she ever could have dreamed of!
Early the next morning after the sun have just raised! Mirai takes her beloved teddy-bear Mofurun to seek out the falling star!! After some searching the star finds Mirai and together their magical adventure beyond their wildest of dreams have just
Characters are extremely important to me.I need my girls, and to feel for them, and their cause. Most importantly they need to love and cherish each other.My girls deliver on every plane. The immense love and passion they share is remarkably deep and creates a immersive experience .That makes this a very charming and entertaining media. This shines through on every level when it comes to their relationship .I cheer for my girls I laugh with them and I cry with them,,Most importantly I'm there with them. It also have interesting side characters that adds a lot to the story!!!
Not the best.But neither the worsted ,, It's even! They pick a tone and stick with it!! Its warm lovely and cute!
The story is alluring charming beautiful sad and everything in between! I love the world build and how it drags you in. and hypothesise you in way that makes you wanna watch the next episode right away,,It's hard to put down!!! A fantastic fun fantasy world full with wonders and joyful adventures!!
I like the monsters battle-cry , And the music overall especially in the transformations!!
I have so much fun! And sometimes i was angry and sometime i have feelings of sorrow .Everything that i want to feel is there and i got so invested .And it was really even throughout out at the whole thing.It started great and just keep going.For me the most enjoyable part is my girls. And their strong love for each other and that they always cared so much! They don't just talk about the big game they show it!! Words are cheap my girls love for each other are not
I consider this to be one of the best media ever created.Its the Precures chef-d'oeuvre in my meaning,It have a lot of heartwarming moment and are at the top of the magical girl shows .It's truly brilliant and I cant recommend it enough!! Matter the fact I'm going to re watch it again. Got the graving after writing so much about it
With the most impressive, in-depth world building of all the Precure shows, you'd think it would go to great places... except that it mostly does not.
You could divide this show into two halves - the first half, which is well thought out and consistent, and the latter half, which goes from unique and interesting to a messy abomination and back within a few episodes. While there is some filler, most of it does actually contribute to the character's relationships, and aren't totally useless for a change.
Not the most unique set in the Precure universe, nor the most developed. But they're not irritatingly
exaggerated, either, and it's their relationships as a group that really makes the show watchable. In fact, the side characters are all surprisingly well fleshed out and involved, given they're barely ever on screen.
There's three different magical outfits for the duo, which are all wonderfully unique and befitting of their characters. The uniform and clothing designs are adorable, and definitely worthy of a cosplay or two. There's some gorgeously drawn and unique scenery, and a few cool angles from Mofurun - the teddy bear- 's perspective. Even the CGI dancing is visually interesting, though by no means a masterpiece. It's perhaps the most consistent of all the Precure series in terms of visual style.
The ED's are... annoying. They're exactly what you'd expect from an off-beat children's anime. The OP is fast-past and interesting, but ultimately nothing special.
