Let's Cooking! This is my review of Kira Kira Precure episode 34 and Yukari switch bodies with her Crystal Animal!
The Good: Cat Yukari was playing everyone in order to lure Diable's shadows out so that she can take them since she knew that they are behind the conflict between the cats and the fairies. As seem from the last two episodes, Diable's influences are enough to turn humans against each other, let alone the cats and the fairies were also affected by the same magic.
Although Diable is not really strong but the amount of negative energy from the town is enough to regain his full form which we will see how it goes in the next episode.
The Bad: Cat Yukari maybe cool and calculated however Yukari took her cat form like a normal issue and didn't freak out which to be honest, any normal person will have panic at the sight of being turning into an animal. It will have nice to see Yukari panicking or at least filled with anxiety to get back to normal but no, she rather choose to be a cat for the whole duration until the battle start.
On the other hand, it was more disappointing not to see her Crystal animal fooling around in her human body. Instead, we only have one scene of her Crystal animal munching off Akira's packet of dried anchovies. It was even weird to see the rest of the girls transformed already and didn't question Yukari (Cat) on why she hasn't transform.
Yukari and Ciel's little conflict was not even that interesting and Yukari didn't bother telling Ciel that she is a cat and just play along until Ciel found it out by herself. The reason why Yukari and her Crystal animal switch bodies? It was never resolved at the end and happen so randomly.
In the end, despite Yukari turning into a cat, it did not develop her character or even got a chance for Yukari to be out of her comfort zone and freak her out but no, Yukari is as boring as the fight in this episode.
Next episode, Aoi invited Himari to her party which got Himari all freak out since she is not used to seeing a large crowd in a party. Until then, see you in the next post!
