I enjoyed the first few episodes I watched of Hayate! :) Nagi in particular was adorable to me, but I liked all the characters. I would definitely like to watch more, and your excitement about it definitely added to that interest. So thanks for the advice/opinion, its length aside I would like to watch more soon.

I also hope your holidays were safe and enjoyable, and your new year has started well.

I see that you really like maids, so here's something from me, cute Haru in a maid costume (from the anime Yesterday wo Utatte)

How'd you feel about Hayate the Combat Butler? I really want to watch it because it seems funny and the girls are cute but I've heard mixed opinions about its quality and I'm not great with finishing longer shows. I might check it out soon though because a goofy otaku-humor show is usually like medicine to me.

I'm unable to access that blog of yours. Is it down or something?

A friend of mine said that my opinion on Futari wa Precure is like something from the show "Shiki" lol

I disagree with the morality of the show.

I didn't like what they did with the 'Seeds' of the Dark King. They didn't really do anything morally reprehensible. Their demise pained me. It was very unfair. They didn't choose to be what they are yet the Precure blamed them for their actions. They're in a similar situation yet they show no sympathy. And when it got to the point where the seeds were going to go up against Dark King they didn't do jack shit to help them.
The Seeds just don't want to unexist, nothing wrong with that.
And then the implied reincarnation of Kiriya shows up making stuff more awkward, implying the Seeds were wrong for desiring freedom and that accepting "nothingness" (Kiriya's willful acceptance of his demise which happened when he has realised that desiring and living is ideal; it says that earthly desires such as freedom from a preordained fate is wrong which echos Buddhist rhetoric afaik) is correct.
It shit itself essentially.

I think the previous paragraph covers my thoughts about Futari wa Precure's view on what is "good" or "evil" and how I feel about such conflicts, where characters are being antagonized for reasons beyond their control. It's par for the course I suppose.
I must say that I haven't seen a story like Futari wa's so it's cool.
I suppose I understand why you would call it "pure". It is quite genuine with the ideals that it pushes no matter how much I disagree with it.
I don't know what you mean by "older series" though.
I'm gonna say that such "good and evil" stories you see in things like Futari wa Precure aren't really in a vacuum like what you are implying and are always going to be based on a particular school of thought or philosophy.

"it helped me to understand the feminine world view"
I think this is one of the reasons I have been getting an interest in female child-oriented programmes. Although child/youth-oriented media tend to fall into the trap of propagandizing and occasionally dogmatism which goes against understanding.

I have more to say like comparing Futari wa with a show that showcases a similar conflict and how I prefer that particular show but I'll save it for later if you're interested. Shit's too long already

What'd you think of Futari wa Precure?
To sum up my thoughts:
I wanted to like it but the morality of a children's cartoon aimed at young females irked (being generous here) me.

Lol, forcing people to watch anime you like is the best. There are still people who haven't forgiven me for screening Excel Saga. Yeah it's gonna be a challenge this year but I think our new committee is up for it.

There's a lot of magical girl stuff I would like to watch as well, I really like the genre and I enjoy seeing the different variations of powers the characters take on. I'm thinking about watching Heartcatch soon for sure, do you recommend any other Precure series? I am drawn to that one in particular for the lovely character designs. I also need to finish Sailor Moon and Ojamajo Doremi, I really enjoyed what I watched of both of them. Just as you said, magical girl shows are long, and typically repetitive. I think they're best watched over a long period, I will usually just chill and watch an episode or two at the end of the day.

Nice to meet you! Thank you reading my blog, it's nice to know its reaching someone. Likewise, I was Cardiff's president last year but I'm still around on the committee for this coming year.

That's good to hear! I am craving the beach right now, it would be nice if I can get away within the remainder of this summer as well. And just as you said, I have been taking advantage of the added free time to get through shows faster too. Despite a lot of the problems Covid has brought for the world, I do think many people on this website and just fans in general are enjoying the ability to watch more, and use the shows as escapism (or is it just me?)

Hey man! We haven't talked in a while, how have you been?




And your wish is my command, Nobue is the best :)
