The official BBS of "Fresh Precure!" was temporarily closed this month. Toei Animation explained that some users have posted unpleasant comments, which were against the rule of the BBS. According to Tech Insight, the users, supposedly grown-ups, started communicating with each other and created a "closed community-like" atmosphere. Other users criticized them that their behaviors had been repelling kids, who were supposed to be the main target of the anime. The intensive arguments between the adult fans resulted in the closure of the BBS.

The majority of the people on those BBS are usually adults and it is no surprise that the kids felt left out, as the argument intensifies..

Everyone's a child at heart, I guess their hearts are just a little closer to the surface. ^^;

Calm down guys, it's just a mahou shoujo series. :/

Lol, those who posted something like that ... should be the reason. I guess they didn't get enough troll messages like "ILUVTHISANIMESOMUCH!'' I_i

Yeah, I heard about this a while ago. I wonder if the show attracts more otaku than it does kids- sounds like it does.

I don't think they are boys/girls. They were talking about "Sentimental Journey", "Wedding Peach", "Steel Angel Kurumi". Pretty much sounds like in their 30's.

Silly fanboys/girls xD

Although personally I find lurking places like that amusing~
In a series like this I'm sure the crazy fans are slightly more amusing to watch than the series xD
