THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.

Holly shi...

That was intense. I mean I know more or less what was going to happen but, as often with this series, way it was done surprised me.
I really love how consistently great this show is.

And next week we are going mecha! I also look forward to how they are going to tie it with Emiru story, I still want this duo of dummies working together.

Homare's episodes are the best so far. Not that the others aren't good, but I find her episodes really compelling.
This episode really was great, with a great story, great development, great bits of animation. I really liked the two girl's relationship and how they broke from Oshimaida's power together. Really cool.

Also, I love how the Precure Franchise is going all out with the bait lately.


Also, the end of that ep wrecked me. I wasn't expecting it at all. It was kind of violent.
I can't wait for next week, ever more since it will be MECHA.

wow! Toei really pulled out all the stops on this episode 0.o
The little squabble between the two girls reminded me little bit of Hibiki x Kanade from Suit Precure... good memories...
superb art style and animation made the shocking revelation at the end even more impactful... especially with the sound effect as the best girl fell on concrete followed by Hana shivering at the sight... just wow...
here's to hoping for more episodes like this!

this is too good, this keeps being too good, this is so good each damn week, every episode brings something to the table, each episode is unique, i can't with this anime, it's my favorite of the year without a doubt. i wish people in the anime community would give this a chance. somebody needs to write a WT!

lulu's progression has been so realistic, i was afraid it would feel unbelievable but it's pretty amazing what they've done with her character.

homare x harry yeesss i knew it. there where many signals before this episode and i'm surprised not many people noticed them before. i think they are well suited for each other...

also the guy under the rain, he's the final boss i think and every scene he's in is kinda beautiful.

Wasn't expecting that ending, that's for sure.

Anyway, can't wait for the next episode as it seems Lulu is going full-on MECHA while Hana, Saya and Homare try and get her to remember...them and all that.

Also, can I just say how amazing the animation style (especially for the fight as well as Lulu falling down at the end of the episode, et cetera) was?!

I've only watched 3 seasons of Precure as they aired before this one, and I can easily say that this has been the most painful to be forced to wait a week between episodes. I need more. Now. (Though that's not saying much, since the 3 I watched as they aired before this were bad, then average, then awful...)

There's also no real way to lose with Ruru... either she joins them and she's still all monotone and awkward, which would be hilarious, or she joins them and shows more emotion, which would still be awkward and hilarious.

This has been one of the best seasons of Precure in several years. I hope it keeps up the good work all the way to the end. It's already a strong contender to be in my top 3.

I'm going to assume "Major Malfunction" was a somewhat creative Sub choice.

This episode did not disappoint. Seriously great all around. The individual story was good, the developments with Homare/Harry were good, another very-atmospheric appearance of who I’m now suspecting as a top-tier antagonist, great developments related to Lulu, better animation than usual...

Also, tfw we’re going mecha next episode and it doesn’t feel out of place.

I’m super happy with this season so far all-around. The characters are well developed, the theme is well developed, and the action is on-point (though not quite as impressive overall as Heartcatch/Go! Princess). It’s just really quality.

Also, I really like this mystery guy since virtually every scene he appears in has nearly the level of atmosphere as the Hall of Precure in Heartcatch or the House of Dreams in Go! Princess. His atmosphere is more subtle, but it always leaves an impression. I haven’t seen that kind of charisma from a character I currently suspect as an antagonist since Dune.

THE BEST EPISODE EVER! THE SHIP HAS SAILED! Its been such a very long time since precure brought romance to the series. Pretty interesting though. The show is getting much better.

I CAN'T BELIEVE ICE SKATING PRODIGY FELT IN LOVE WITH A HAMSTER!

Really though... It's my first Precure. I started this one because I like mahou shoujo for seinen, like Madoka, Yuki Yuna or Princess Tutu, just to see how ms aimed for actual shoujo are done now and... This friggin' episode. This show is just too good for something made for little girls.

It's actually not just him since Akifumi Zako is also the director of the series.

Makes sense. I know him from his healing anime more, like Aria or Tamayura and these were really good. That explains why directing here is so good.

So Ruru really is a terminator, explains all her computer powers.
Damn that ending! Looks like next ep will be a great one.
