Hi, Everyone! This is Episode 25 of Healin' Good Precure and here are my thoughts of this episode!
After Chiyu and Pegitan watched a horror movie which got Pegitan all frightened, Chiyu commented him of being cute which Pegitan mistook it as a weakness.
Pegitan ran away from home and mistaken by a little girl, Riri who brought him home thinking that he is a doll and even named him Josephine (Although Pegitan might not realise it is a girl's name)
While Chiyu and the others were out looking for him, Riri was enjoying playing with Pegitan as he tried his best to behave like a real penguin. Later that night, he overheard Riri's mother talking to an asleep Riri hoping that she is getting used to her new school and making friends.
The next day, Pegitan want to return to Chiyu but was concerned of what Riri's mother spoke last night and found her at school. Riri saw Pegitan being manhandled by her male classmates and tried her best to stop them. The other classmates step in to help Riri and they were pleased to see Pegitan.
After school, Riri told Pegitan that she just moved to this new town with her mother and is worried that she might not get used to her new school. Chiyu and the others finally found them and Pegitan was glad to see Chiyu again.
Riri was upset and ran off with Pegitan. Chiyu went after her while the other girls handled Shindoine's new Megabyogen. Riri was upset that she might lose Pegitan but Pegitan told her that she was very brave in saving him from her male classmates which gave him the courage to move forward also.
Pegitan then reunited with Chiyu and they also transformed to join in the fight. After defeating the Megabyogen, Chiyu and Pegitan went to visit Riri and Chiyu told her that Pegitan wants to see her and hope they can be friends...
As I stated before, I won't be doing every episode if there is nothing interesting to talk about and the last two episodes which are Asumi-focused episodes are really not interesting. Firstly Asumi has a personality of a piece of wood. I understand that she is like a child who does not understand the concept of emotions but it was very tiring to see her being taught what is right or wrong from the other girls.
So it is a breath of fresh air to have a Chiyu/Pegitan episode and this episode is a very good one which is about taking the first step to a new environment. Riri has problems making new friends in her new school and furthermore, her mother is working late at night which resulted in Riri spending time alone. When she saw Pegitan, she immediately like him and took him home to play with. I am suprised that Pegitan didn't start talking to her until later in the episode when he talked to her through a closed door. Pegitan himself also learn to be more confident after seeing Riri saved him from her classmates.
Overall, a nice episode between Pegitan and Riri. Next episode is back to Asumi and Latte which I can't tell what is actually going on except that is about Asumi keeping a diary. Until then, stay safe and see you in the next post!
