… You know I was only planning to cover Episode 19 & 20, but then I got stuck into covering Episode 21 as well because I literally had nothing to say for Episode 19, so I had hoped Episode 20 had something, but nope it only dragged it out further so by default I had to carry on to Episode 21 to write up.
Please forgive me, I don’t think I can even write up five hundred words about Episode 19 without cheating. I was so bored I was quite tempted to skim through it- I really wanted to do that. It also revealed the consequences of 5 weeks of delay, where my interest in the show is virtually non-existent at this point. Episode 19 was merely a minor build up of what was about to happen in Episode 20, which I thought I would have enough to talk about before dropping this.
Here’s a quick run down of what happened in Episode 19: Batty survived the Mega Fusion (by infusing Sparda’s and Gamet’s with his own) and Haa-Chan bailed them out with her super power yet again and by the end of the episode they are able to access the great mystery of the “Unopenable” Door.
Episode 20, we finally got some information and I still couldn’t bring myself to care that much. Though it was funny to see the girls walk into the enemy headquarters where none other the big bad boss is there, alongside with the Headmaster who went to confirm his suspicions of Dokurokushe’s true identity. All I could think of how screwed everyone was, especially after the Headmaster finally unleashed his true power he had sealed in order to stock-pile it for this event- only to be defeated and at the same time become a wrinkly old man.
The girls tried fighting, but we already knew there was no hope since they had enough difficulty fighting against Batty, who was strong enough to have survived- but unfortunately for him, once the Emerald appears, he is vaporized to death. To make matters worse, Kushe has successfully attained the Emerald’s power. And so it is because of that, I couldn’t simply just drop the coverage there- right on a cliffhanger, so off we go to Episode 21. Way to keep me around Precure.
Episode 21: Wow, talk about total lackluster and feels-way-too-premature Big Bad Boss fight. Hard to believe the girls were able to defeat Dokurokushe, with again- Haa-chan’s help. Then Haa-Chan finally has her evolution and makes everything better, including what appears to have freed and cleansed Kushe’s soul from the corruption. And when it’s all said and done Haa-Chan disappears.
That’s it. That’s the episode.
And as a special bonus, I will give you my two cents on Episode 22, where I simply went to see Haa-chan’s Precure Felice’s transformation and power. I gotta say, it s really too bad it took twenty-two episodes to show off this cool stuff, I mean Cure Felice is without a doubt the most BEAUTIFUL precure design and transformation I have ever seen. It is a wonder of what kind of villains will be replacing the old, it feels as though the show is slapping a “restart” button, starting a whole new journey from scratch, only this time with Haa-chan all grown up.
After all being said and done, I am
finally officially dropping this series. Over the course of the five weeks of delay, the simple fact was that I did not miss this series and I returned only to have zero interest or motivation to properly complete a blitz of 5 weeks of entries. It is unfortunate that I do not share the same amount of passion and interest in Mahou Tsukai Precure as I had for the past two Precure series, but I am grateful for the fun time I had with those two. Alas, I must wait for the next one, and perhaps there will be better luck next time. For the rest of you, hope Mahou Tsukai Precure will turn out great in the end, maybe I’ll continue where I left off after it’s all over and done with if it happens to be ten times better than the first half.
