I was seriously considering just combining Episode 34 and 35 together just because there is little to talk about. Once again we sat through an episode that served no purpose to the plot. I am crossing my fingers that next week’s will be the last and quickly return back on track for the storyline. As Megumi had failed the first time to obtain her innocent form, I more or less am expecting her second attempt during the plot related event taking place.
Speaking of the Innocent Form, today’s case with Hime had confirmed that the Shining Makeup Dresser will respond to genuinely powerful feelings that does not necessarily have to solely innocence. Hime’s will and desire to protect the students’ hard work and efforts they had put into the Cultural Festival was simply strong enough to connect with the Shining Makeup Dresser. That being said though, it was underwhelming and came off a bit of a surprise considering how under budget this episode turned out to be. I mean it wasn’t ugly but it had its derpy moments where as you compare it to the cinematic atmosphere Iona’s episode had. Next week it will be Yuuko’s turn, and while I have my doubts it will give me anything more to talk about, (perhaps a brief cliff-hanger to draw out attention to the next upcoming episode, that would be nice…).
I honestly can’t see myself getting used to the the Innocent Form makeup anytime soon, it just… especially for Hime’s today- her lipstick UGH, and then they threw in the eyeshadow/eyeliner, whatever the hell they were doing and it only made her look ridiculous. I have a difficult time wrapping the very reality around my head of how complicated it is to draw characters with make-up on without looking ridiculous. Like it is almost like they feel the need to put it in our faces just so ensure that we notice the details!
The upcoming Happiness Charge Precure! Ningyou no Kuni no Ballerina movie was featured in the OP this week and is expected to continue to do so over the next couple of episodes. It looks like a cute movie so I will probably be tunning in to watch this one (despite the fact I usually skip Precure movies). I have to say though it was amusing to see how they used Hime’s ideal prince as the actual prince to be featured in the film.
