THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
They did it!
Those crazy people did it!

For the first time... character in Precure has been hit by a truck.
I wasn't expecting that and it felt brutal to be fair.
Did they also changed OP with Henri as one of generals? That was pretty neat.

Than Henri became a Precure.
FINALLY! It took them a while to get there but Hugtto is just kind of series that would do crazy stuff like that. Wished for more complicated transformation but I'll take that one.
And moment Masato saves him at the end was cute, such adorable couple.

Next week, we're dealing with Homare and then Hana is going to snap, it seems.

God bless Toei for pushing forward and making Henri become a Precure, I don't think that he will join the cast for real after this event but I loved seeing it happening so much, props to them.

Fantastic episode, Henri was already pushing himself way too far and not even being able to put an end to his career after a performance due to the truck accident was tragic (kids show btw), hopefully this event will make him overcome the situation and find another thing he can put his everything into.

God bless Juni Sato. Too bad he probably won't be a permanent addition to the cures though.

yeah, but hey, if Precure last long enough for another mega-crossover thing like what Hugtto did during ep 37 he'd be eligible to appear again :D

Also uh, Kurai can just re-brainwash his minions? He didn't bother to do that with everyone else but he did so for Ristor?

The only thing that irritated me was that Hana reached out to Henri when he was trapped. I thought that it would be Homare or at least Emiru's brother because I personally think they share a deeper connection with Henri than Hana.

Never expected in 15 years of Precure to see a boy become Precure! (even for a moment) Also seems Cure Yell should be Cure Aile, all the other Precure have french names.

This episode was far beyond my expectations. I was afraid it would turn out to be redundant, but not at all.

Like, emotionally, it was a blow. Henri's breakdown felt pretty real, even though Truck-san's apparition was maybe a little too much. But, like, is that really Precure ?? Madmen ! I like that !
Then, the first male Precure. I'm kinda disappointed by his lack of real action though, but it still blows my mind that it actually happend for real. We got a little bit of it last season, but here he gets a name, and I like it a lot.
Finally, Cure Yell's name explanation blowed my mind !! I'm French and I didn't even noticed it sounded like "Aile". I was really like "WOAW, IT MAKES SO MUCH SENSE!". This season is so, so good.

Seeing the preview, everything is wrapping up slowly and nicely for our characters's struggles as the end of the season approches. Let's hope the same happens for the themes and the plot of the series.

I quite agree. But I guess it's because of Cure Yell's encouragement and the strength of it that she was the one reaching out. The episode made a point to highlight the fact that Hana is a strong emotional support to her friends, so it was natural that she should be the one to reach out, otherwhise the whole point was kind of lost.

I'm ecstatic over Henri's inclusion, I can't believe I'm seeing this right now, haha.

That fall.. and the proceeding slide and catch. Super charming.

As a fan of the series, and like other boys who are fans of the series, this is a really bad idea to make Henri a Pretty Cure. We never demanded a boy to be a Pretty Cure. Pretty Cure has always been a magical girl genre, and we accepted that only females can be a Pretty Cure. He is not even a good Cure either because he wasn't even hitting the monster, and we never wanted a 7th Cure. If Henri is only going to be a Cure for 1 episode, it's not going to be any better. Tarte from Fresh Pretty Cure is a much better male Pretty Cure than Henri. This is when Hugtto Pretty Cure is jumping the shark for a ratings trap. This is the most disappointing thing that the Precure series has ever done since Doki Doki.

News flash: Nobody cares.
You're scared a boy appeared on your screen in girly outfits before you can nut.
