Maho Tsukai Precure Ep 41: Back to the Magic School!

Cure Up! Rapapa! This is my review of Maho Tsukai Precure Episode 41 Review and the girls returned back to the Magic School!

I wonder how the Magic school calender worked in this series. The opening shot has the girls rushed to catch the Snail Train to the Magic world and attend Magic lessons. But after that, the girls returned to Earth for normal schooling andt they returned to the Magic School again!?

If I am not wrong when it is the school holidays on Earth, it is school season in Magic World. But wouldn't it be very confusing and tired since the girls won't have enough rest as they will be attending both schools all year long?

Maybe why this show is not getting any buzz is the fact that Toei couldn't make up its' mind to focus on one world and instead showed bits and pieces of their school life. If the girls don't get tired, I will get tired and less invested as we hardly scratch the surface of the Magic World.

I do realise that the classes are all girls despite have male students previously appearing. Furthermore, the rest of the class doesn't seem to interact with Mirai and Company at all. At least, the school on Earth are more interesting with Mirai's classmates being bumbling friends!

The fact that almost 2/3 of the episode is the girls studying and relaxing with Jun and company does not make it a good episode. Sure, the girls tried to avoid the head teacher night patrolling as the girls were goofing around in the sleepover. But it didn't add up much although Jun play a prank on Riko (I am sticking to Riko instead of Liko. It is my blog and I can do whatever I want!) and later gave an actual present to her was not much of a big deal.

The headmaster reminiscing of his youth with the young Dokuroxy was odd since Dokuroxy was corrupted after creating a Dark book of spells which I thought he was corrupted by an outer force when the headmaster explained to the girls during their battle with Dokuroxy...

Anyway, why this plot point was brought up is the fact that later Oruba actually found the Dokuroxy's spell book in the place where he was defeated which doesn't make sense? How did the book ended up there? I don't recall seeing it landing in the water after Dokuroxy's spirit was led to rest by Kotoha. How did Oruba took this long to find the book and he just happen to be there and find it?

But the book of spells is now in Oruba's hands, what will happen next is anyone guess. But from next week's episode, it seems Shakinsu got a boost in power and became huge! But the episode title doesn't sound impressed since it is about the girls making pudding. (WTF?!)

A new eyecatch for the last quarter of the series? Isn't that a waste of time?

You can tell I really hate this episode other than Oruba finding Dokuroxy's book of spells. Prepare for my continuing rage of this series until the end which I pray, please make Kirakira Precure better when it come out next February. Until then, see you in the next post!
