Let's Cooking! This is my review of Kira Kira Precure episode 27. From now on, I will just talk about the good, the bad and overall thoughts of the episode since Kira Kira Precure is kinda of getting 'Meh' unless something happened.
The Good: We finally have an Aoi episode after her last one with her butler which is like a few months ago. So when Aoi got to play in the Blue Fes open concert, she felt the pressure especially when her idol, Misaki is playing next field with a capacity crowd and Aoi's concert had a subtle crowd.
Furthermore, she mistaken Ichika's words (about hard and sour gummies) thinking that her friends are looking down at her. It led to an interesting scene that Elysio successfully influenced Aoi/Cure Gelato in creating havoc in the concert which should lead to a better climax however it failed.
The Bad: After 27 episodes, the girls are not really united in both heart and soul. Thanks to many episodes that focus on Ichika, Ciel and Julio, the remaining four girls had little development or even understanding of each others' strength and weakness.
So when Cure Gelato got turned evil, I was expecting some heads on with the girls as they realised one of their own is now creating havoc but because of no-fists rules, the girls just shouted to Cure Gelato about how she feel and she recovered which it is really a face palm on the face. (Yes, it is a facepalm!)
Although Aoi's blue crystal changed into a lion crystal but because Elder and Pekorin are pretty useless throughout so far, we don't know what this means and because we are only halfway through the season so padding is confirmed.
But why didn't Akira and Yukari's crystals changed shape during their episode? Does that mean we are getting another Akira and Yukari centric episode again? (Lord, I have nothing against those two but can we get to the main plot or at least get some ideas what the girls are suppose to do?)
Overall, a mixed bag for me. It will be interesting to at least see one of the Cures joined the bad guys for a while and see how things will work up seeing that the girls are not invulnerable to outside influences.
Next episode, Himari finally get the spotlight as she become an assistant to her favourite author who is Dr Sweets?! (That's what I am calling him next week!) Until then, see you in the next post!
P.S: I have just finished watching Season 1 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and it is pretty interesting and now halfway through Season 2. If you want my thoughts of the first season, Leave a comment and you will probably get the review real soon.
