Let's Cooking! This is my review of Kira Kira Precure episode 41 and Rio is being framed for stealing the Kiraru energy again?
The Bad: It is a plot we have seen from countless shows especially Toei produced shows where a former villain joined the team and how to redeem the troubles he/she caused. For Rio's case, he was framed for ruining the sweets in town and the town people are raising pitchforks on him and Ciel.
Of course, this is a scheme by Elsio as he was behind the frame up and the negative influences on the townspeople. The girls teamed up to restore Rio's innocence and defeated Elsio in his new Dark Knight form.
If you are expecting for Rio to become a Precure again, well you are disappointed since the power up he got last episode was a one-off thing. Probably towards the finale, he might get it again to aid the girls. So dream on to those wanted Rio to be a permanent member of the team.
The Good: Noir and Elsio have decided in the beginning of the episode that to go all out to defeat the Precures which is why they targeted Rio. The relationship between Rio and Ciel was rekindled since Ciel blamed herself for taking Rio for granted which led Rio to be becoming Julio.
Elsio's Dark Knight Form was interesting since there was no monster of the week which means it is full on boss fight in this episode. The girls were clearly a disadvantage since Elsio could fly but Cure Parfait which is based on the Pegasus flow up to knock Elsio down.
Since we are at the final quarter, it seems that every episode from now on is a spotlight episode for the girls which will have some closure for everyone of them before the finale. Like next week, it is Aoi's episode and whether her dream of being a real singer could be realised.
Not much else to say about this episode. So until, see you in the next post!
P.S: To answer Pat Daddy's question that he asked last week, for the time being, this will be the current format for the Kira Kira Precure which I will talk about the Good, the Bad and Overall thoughts. As most of you who have been following my posts on Precure, I usually go for the best moments for an episode. However Kira Kira Precure overall story so far isn't really that good that there is not enough moments to cover in an episode.
Like this particular episode, I can count maybe three best moments which is really not worth the effort. Some episodes I can only count maybe 1 or 2 best moments which is really bad in my opinion. Maybe when the finale begins, I might try to do a best moments review (If Toei is willing to go all out) otherwise when Hugtto Precure aired next year, I will perharps start again for the best moments.
