No 6: Hug-Tan can't stop crying and the Mirai Pad!
After Harry had a sleepless night trying to make Hug-tan to behave, the girls tried to help and Saya used her laptop to check that babies are curious for new environments and Harry introduced the girls with the Mirai Pad that could assist the girls.
|Like I said, get a mobile phone. It is much easier to carry than a laptop.|
Somehow the Pad seems to be pointing at a particular direction and from the streets, a garden and finally a petting zoo. (Although I am thinking that Saya should get a mobile phone with internet connection since bringing a laptop is not visible and where did she kept that laptop on her? Furthermore, does that laptop run on wifi or her own data plan? I doubt that a park has wifi connection either)
No 5: Lulu talks!
After two episodes, we finally get to hear Tamura Yukari's Lulu spoke in the episode as expected, Lulu spoke in a monotone voice and she behave like a computer with her brain processing the information. She told Charalit that the White Mirai Crystal will appear when the Precures are around as such Charalit went to look for his next victim to lure the girls out and even commented that Lulu is great part-timer. (So what does Lulu do when she is not working?)
No 4: Cool Nee-Chan Homare and let Mother handle the baby.
Homare step in to help the two girls after a grumpy salaryman complained of Hug-tan's crying. The girls also saw Homare has a weakness for cute things. Hana's mother Sumire and Kotori also arrived and Sumire managed to let Hug-Tan fell asleep. When Sumire asked where is Hug-tan's parent, Harry in his human form immediately claimed he is her father. (Which Sumire commented that Harry seems young to be a father)
No 3: Where is Hug-Tan's mother?
When Hana asked Harry where is Hug-Tan's mother, he told the two girls that Hug-Tan's mother entrusted him with her child and escaped using the White Mirai Crystal. His world was ruined by the Cryasse Corporation as everybody's futures were taken away and time stopped forever.
Harry also explained that they need to find the remaining Six Mirai Crystals (including Hana and Saya's Crystals which is a total of 8) in order to restore their world and save everyone. Hana had a shiver when she imagine the world around her will become like Harry's world if they failed.
No 2: For Hug-Tan and the Future!
Charalit created an Oshimaida from the grumpy salesman earlier and started wrecking havoc. The two girls transformed and battled it. The Oshimaida which is a balloon became larger after taking in more air.
But Cure Yell who was more determined to save Harry and Hug-Tan's world, punched the Oshimaida so hard and defeated it quickly.
No 1: Homare envied the Precure.
During the battle, Homare witnessed the girls' battles and saw how they could jump in the air with such grace and agility. Furthermore as everyone were at Hana's house, the Mirai Pad showed a figure walking away from Hana's house which so happened to be Homare...
There was some confusion of whether is it two or three Cures that Hana need to find based on last week's episode. In today's opening, Hana said it is three person which means after Saya/Cure Ange, there are two more Cures left-One is Homare/Cure Etolie and the unknown Fourth Cure.
Despite not having Homare to join the team yet, this episode actually gave us some motives for the girls to work to since they do not know what is the purpose of become a Precure.
Harry's explanation of Hug-Tan's mother, the destroyed Future and the White Mirai Crystal which is the Macguffin of the series since the Cryasse Corporation are also searching for it based on what Lulu told Charalit of the possibility of the appearance of the White Mirai Crystal. Furthermore, a total of 8 Mirai Crystals are needed to save the future which I am guessing every Cure will get two Crystals each.
We get to see Homare behave outside school and she is definitely the Tsundere of the trio as she talked back to the grumpy salesman and afterwards, she went all gaga over a guinea pig and later Hug-Tan. At least, we know Homare's weakness! The Mirai Pad seems to be pointing at her all these while but the two girls were oblivious to put two and two together.
The fight scene was pretty good and after knowing what Harry and Hug-Tan went through, Cure Yell became more determined to defeat the Cryasse Corporation and really gave a good one on the Oshimaida! Hana thinking of the possibility of their world ending up like Harry's world was pretty dark as people froze in time and turning into statues. (At least, it is not as dumb as Kiraru energy that is produced out of sweets)
Overall, a good episode with some interesting highlights and the race for the White Mirai Crystal is on! However Hana and Saya need to find their new comrades to begin so the scouting for the third Cure begin! What does Homare got to do with them and what is her reason for her laid-back attitude? Until then, see you in the next post!
To those who are celebrating Chinese New Year, Happy Chinese New Year!
