Let's Cooking! This is my review of Kira Kira Precure episode 19 and Kirahoshi Ciel make her appearance!
Before we start the review, Happy Birthday to Yukari as her birthday fall on 11th June! We also bid farewell to Batman '66 TV series Actor Adam West who played Batman/Bruce Wayne as he passed away at the age of 88 on 9th June 2017. Adam West was my first Batman when I grow up and he is still my top three actors to play Batman of all time. Farewell, Old Chum!
So how is this week's episode? I originally thought of Ciel as an arrogant person since genius type characters have that flaw in them but surprisingly, she came off as friendly and humble especially her first appearance at the market and later at her opening shop. Ciel also behave like a typical foreigner as she spurt out French and English words and was taken aback when Ichika wanted to become her apprentice.
Ciel offered Ichika to make a recipe that represent herself before allowing her to become her apprentice. But Ichika being Ichika tried to show off during the preparation and Ciel immediately failed her. However she got an inspiration from Ichika's dish and created a better dish which blow Ichika away. (Seriously, why don't Toei just follow Shougeki no Soma method of tasting food? But then the show will immediately end up in the midnight hours)
Ichika also realised that she and Ciel has a lot in common since she also want to use her food to spread love around the world. Of course, Bibury arrived to ruin everything and Ciel caught a glimpse of the Precures in action before knocked unconscious.
However I was a bit disappointed that because of the leaked information week before that Ciel is also a Spirit like Pekorin and in the beginning of the episode, she changed into her true form while searching the mystery forest.
But a bigger question is her connection with Julio as she was the person in his flashback. Ciel was even more interested of the Precure's appearance as we see in the next episode, Ciel and Ichika went to the mystery forest and they began to learn more of each other.
Until then, see you in two week for the next episode review!
