Hugtto Precure Ep 46 Top 3 Moments: Crisis Descends! Part 1 (Plus Star Twinkle Precure Trailer Thoughts)

Horray! Horray! This is my review of Hugtto Precure Ep 46 and this is the first post for 2019 and the beginning of the end for Hugtto Precure!

No 3: Happy New Year!

Saya love spicy stuff!

The girls were having their celebration for the New Year from playing games to eating sweets made by Hana's grandmother. Even Papple and company joined in the festivals.

Dr Trauma was invited to join Hana's family for the occasion and he went all daddy love on Ruru which embarrassed her.

No 2: Hana and George.

At the start of the episode, Hana was having a dream of her wearing a wedding dress and seeing pictures of people who inspired others. However George appeared in her dream and claimed that their efforts are in vain as people grew to be selfish and untrustworthy.

Later, Hana was in the same lift with George and he offered a bouquet of Craspedia which he claimed it means eternal happiness. (It is more to good health according to some sources) Hana rejected his bouquet and he started preaching of how humans have become selfish as a result of civilization advances and cause civilization to collapse.


George even claimed he froze time so that no one including the Precures from the future will not suffer any more pain. Hana tried to argue back saying that there is still hope for humanity after they managed to save people from their pain. But George insisted that it is futile and want Hana to remember how her peers humiliated her in her former school.

But Hana stood up and announced that she believe in her friends and the future before Saya and Homare came to her aid. George retreated and decided to go all out immediately!

No 1: Crisis Descends!

George make the Crisis Building landed near the beach and fired a beam at the town causing everyone to froze in time. The girls who are not affected by the time froze immediately went into battle to stop George and his hordes of Oshimaida!

The girls fought hard with the aid of the Mirai Pad and managed to clear a large number of Oshimaida. George turned the building into the Giant Shadowy figure from the early episodes and captured Hug-Tan.

Cure Yell tried to save her but was knocked back down and the girls were confronted by Ristle, Bishin and a new horde of Oshimaida...

So we are finally at the endgame as George's motives is slightly revealed. It looked like George lose someone very dear to him (Which everyone is probably speculating it is an adult Hana) and his idea of freezing time so that Adult Hana will not be taken away is probably out of desperation. But it probably drove him mad that he blamed the whole world for his pain. Even Dr Trauma mentioned to Ruru that George's ideals is a mystery and no one really knew what he is thinking.

George was further disgusted by how humans behave like savages and loathed at humanity destruction claiming they deserve it. But of course Hana being the optimistic and positive girl she is, does not believe that all humans are bad and people and the future can changed.

But that didn't stop George and he went all out freezing the townspeople and the girls has no choice but to battle him and his horde of Oshimaida. With Hug-Tan captured by him, can the girls save her and stop George's plan? Until then, see you in the next post!

Thoughts on Star Twinkle Precure:

We finally get a trailer for Star Twinkle Precure with our Pink Cure of 2019, Hoshina Hikaru aka Cure Star introducing herself. The trailer doesn't really show much other than seeing Hikaru meeting Fuwa and a silhouette of Hagoromo Lala and Prunce coming out of their spaceship. Plus a sneak peek of Hikaru's transformation of Cure Star!

Fuwa look cute but I still like Hug-Tan!

Is that real Flying Saucers!?

It looked pretty colorful and Hikaru sounds a bit too high pitched but it might grow on me after several times. The transformation item looked like a Quill pen and a pendant so if you lose one of it which I am guessing is the pen, you are screwed.

The Pendant has the symbols of all 12 Zodiac..


Star Twinkle has a lot to live up to since Hugtto Precure has outdone and improved many of the Precures cliches. My hope is that there is a return of physical fights as Hugtto Precure is still playing it safe. The villains and side characters hopefully are interesting enough like Hugtto Precure and a plot that doesn't involve time travel.

Cure Star! Our Pink Cure for 2019!

Until then, let's see how Team Star Twinkle fare when the show premise on 3rd February! (Yes, I am aware of the Precure Universe Movie but I am more focus on the main show itself)

  1. What you said about Star Twinkle having a lot to live up to, and your hope of the return of physical fights...Im with you, lol. Hugtto Precure, while it has its flaws, was IMO a big step up from the previous 2 seasons. Hugtto had mature topics, fresh ideas, and brought something new to the table. And I hope Precure continues to go in that path.

    Im not going to lie. After looking at the preview, it sort of gave me Kirakira vibes, and although I like that series, I hope Star Twinkle isnt like that. But Im still skeptical because it seems like every time we have a deep/mature season, the next one is either bubbly and cute or extremely boring. Toei never continues with the maturity...its like they want to give the viewers a cool down, which in hindsight is understandable but Id much rather prefer stories like Heartcatch, GoPre & Hugtto. Even Dokidoki's and Happiness Charge's backstory was pretty good IMO.

    Guess we'll see...Im excited!
