First of all, I really have to say thank you to all the people who were talking nicely about Hugtto, without them I wouldn't have given a chance to a franchise that is now giving me endless hours of fun between all the entries. I hope this review helps other people to do the same.

As I did with the provisional version of this review while the series was airing, I want to tackle some points that people have against giving a chance to Hugtto, or this franchise in general:

- "This is a kids show": Locking yourself to demographics is such a waste, a good ...

<This review is spoiler-free!>

This was my first contact with the Pretty Cure franchise.

It was pretty much the result of my boyfriend constantly fanboying over the series as he's a huge fan of it. I wasn't too hot on the idea, as I had this initial conception of a magical girl show as being for kids and thus, having naive values I wouldn't really relate a lot with. Still, after some brief searching, season comparing and some input from my lover, I gave the latest season a try anyways, because hey, everyone looked cute, and this was bound to be a nice little watch regardless.

Needless to ...

One year ago, smart PreCure fans were devastated. KiraKira had been terrible and hurt the franchise for all time. But there was hope left, for Hugtto was starting. Surely a more traditional season that brought back physical battles would be much better, right? ...Right?


Story: Easily the worst part of this season. The story is awful beyond words. Now I'm not expecting any masterpiece from little girl anime created to sell toys, but at least some sort of consistency and logic and basic writing skills are expected. However series composer Tsubota blows her nose at things like proper writing and consistency. The series is choke ...

Pretty Cure is all grown up.

For those of us who have seen a Precure before, that tagline is effectively TL;DR. We know what to expect. But honestly, there are very few of us, for reasons beyond the scope of this document. This is aimed at the rest of humanity ... who, for some reason, haunt underutilized sections of MAL.

Pretty Cure is, for better and for worse, a merchandise-driven show. On the plus side, it has steady returns that aren't based on BD/DVD sales figures. This means that it has a level of polish and craftsmanship that isn't usually seen in ...

Hugtto Precure is the third season I watched in the Pretty Cure franchise and is also to this day one of the best seasons I've watched. With the mediocre setback of its prior two seasons since 2015, this season did an amazing job. I may not exactly have the experience with Precure to write a 100% accurate review but I might as well give my own take.

Story: 9/10
Okay, so I know this is going to trigger a lot of people. But at the time I was still relatively new to Precure and what I saw in this season blew my mind. The theme was an ...

🇺🇸🇬🇧 My god where I start.
First of all this anime is the best so far over other Precure's shows. All character are written perfectly both the protagonists and the villains. Every character has a perfect life written. The villains are bad guys for them true intentions and the protagonists are good for them reasons. The art and dessings were pretty cool. Harry and Hugton are supposed to be the mascots of this show and they aren't that. The principal villain has a incredible art and story line. And for finish this review the finish chapter was awesome, a perfect episode to end this great anime.

As someone who have watch every single series of Pretty Cure, I should say that HUGtto is one of the best. In my opinion, it has been a while since precure actually have a decent series where they use fist fights and does not too focused on the lead a.k.a pink cure.

The story keeps getting better and involves not only on Hana. I am very pleased that other cures also got man chances to shine. Not only one or two, but each also got their own "highlight" on the opening and ending. If you miss watching a precure series with some fist fights, not only ...

Overall: 8.5

This anime is nothing if not inconsistent, which is a shame given it has so much to offer the Magical Girl genre.

Character: 9.6

Like most Precure, this is where HUGTTO really shines. Each character goes through some serious troubles, and subsequent development. I very much enjoyed the way the 'relationship-but-not' and 'rejection' elements were handled. Each character is unique, without being too over exaggerated, and the friendships, while unconventional, seem very natural and believable.

Story: 8

The villain concept and plot is definitely unique, as is Hana's and Henri's character development. The pacing is decent, though it wouldn't have hurt to cut down on the ...

*This review contains spoilers.*

From what I've gathered, fans consider Hugtto Precure to be Pretty Cures best installment. I haven't seen any other Precure Anime, nor am I an expert in the magical girl genre, but I think it's reasonable to say that Hugtto Precure is a generally good Anime on it's own. I especially liked its themes and characters and the values and life lessons it's trying to get across to its viewers.

One of Hugtto Precures strengths is it's simplicity. It doesn't try to be a deconstruction of its own genre like Madoka Magica, it doesn't try to be as edgy as Mahou Shoujo ...

This is an insult to not only fans of the series, but also an insult to the series itself. Sure, Doki Doki is a season that made us mad, but this season feels like a modern take on that. While Hana is better than Mana, they brought back physical fights, and had cute moments, but those aren't enough to save it for a few reasons.

The parenting theme is OK something that will make kids learn the responsibilities of parenting and working, but the time travel theme is a gimmick that is bound to leave more questions than answers, creating plotholes. Hana is the only best ...

I've watched everything Precure up to this season and got excited about this one after looking at the average MAL score. However, it was a major disappointment and I'll explain why.

Visuals: pretty but very inconsistent

1) rookies and very experienced seiyuus share the main roles, which is somewhat surprising considering most of Precure seasons. In fact, some of them have worked on the same projects before this one. I think they all did a good job, though
2) too much singing

Story and characters:
1) I'm really sick and tired of baby characters and this one didn't shut up and became very, very annoying ...

Hugtto PreCure did not look impressive to me. However, it surpassed my expectations and is now my second favorite PreCure series. I will admit, the first 12 or so episodes are...not the best. I found them very boring. But, when things get good, they get REAL good. While this show may look childish, it made me cry so much. It has mature themes, slice of life, action, and heart-touching scenes. I overall enjoyed the characters, especially Ruru and Hana, but Saaya and Homare are not great in my opinion. And, if you don't want to be spoiled other series, you should wait to watch it, ...
