The short version is the magic flowers that was supposedly used for the night fireworks were dying despite the Sun is shining although the viewers will know that it was probably Deusmast that is affecting the entire Ecosystem.
A suggestion from Mr Issac to get a similar breed of flowers spring the girls into action with Mirai, Kotoha and Emily looking to find the flowers and Riko, Jun and Kei finding more details about the flowers in the library. This make me think why in the entire school these six girls went to get the flowers and the rest of the students didn't offer to help them? I mean, more hands can get things faster but then we won't have any character developments if that happened.
But that is the flaw of this episode! The search for the flowers was not a dangerous one since nothing really happened when gathering the flowers. It was only when they were returning back to the school premises, Mr Genie appeared and just randomly created a Don Yokubal to hinder the girls.
I really don't understand what is the security of this magic school? If you know that there are dark forces attacking the school on a regular basic, shouldn't there be some kinda of defences against it? My god, Hogwarts has better security than this!
The fight scene was really bad in my opinion. For a team that is called Maho Tsukai, the focus should be using magic to fight offensively or defensively but so far, the way the girls are fighting is really no different from previous teams. Sure, the girls does use the various Linkle stones to assist but it was more of a distraction rather than being effective. (Go and watch some episodes of Go Princess and you can tell that the girls are very creative when using their Princess keys and compared it to Maho Tsukai)
I am not sure but I am noticing a pattern in Precure is that usually the girls will be in some trap and the villain started tauting them and that will make the girls more angrier and they will used their will powers to break free and defeat the villain in one sweep. The last few episodes has been following this trend recently. This episode is no different after Mr Genie threw one of the flowers away and the girls went all berserk and overwhelm the Don Yokubal.
I am not saying that you can't have such moments in Precure but this type of moments should be saved for dire situations like the fate of the world or facing the big bad. Not every time we have to go all "Super Saiyan" just because the villain did something to piss the girls off.
Guys and Gals, you can tell that I am kinda of disappointed with the last few episodes and the way Maho Tsukai is going, I am very worried of this seasons' future. I am now having the same feeling that I have when I reviewed Happiness Charge which is this season has no tension, the villains has no personality and there is no final objective the girls are heading.
Sure, we will probably know what is the connection between Kotoha and a giant field of pink flowers in the future and Deusmast coming to Earth to do some damages which I hope that he do something that is equivalent to a Big Bad otherwise he might end up being a one-trick pony like Dokuroxy.

Next week look like a weird episode since everyone is role playing a character from Cinderella and Morfurn is Cinderella? What is going on? Until then, see you in the next post!
P.S: If you like this episode or Maho Tsukai in general, more power to you. I am just disappointed with how the series has been going so far which I hope the story will get better (and not going downhill) in the near future.
