Blue Heroine in Pretty Cure Series

All Cures from Splash Star to Suite (excluding Cure Windy).
As I say, I will write the next part of the heroine based on theme color from Pretty Cure Series. Now is blue, which is my favorite. There is a list of all Blue Heroine of Pretty Cure Series, as I said blue is my favorite color. Below is all Pretty Cures who has included in this list. (I'm forgot writing Cure Windy so I must update it to this post instead)

Update: I know the characteristic of Blue Heroine when I watch the video, they have some, such as:
  • Each has blue or purple hair and ponytails (except Cure Marine, she's not ponytail)
  • Each has their solo attack based on liquid substance (Water and Ice)For Cure Aqua and Cure Marine are water while Beauty and Diamond are ice.
That's the only characteristic I know. If you have another that you know, please comment me.

Pink Heroine in Pretty Cure Series

Because I have many spare times, I'm going to write Pretty Cure Heroines according to the theme color. There are some theme colors that used in Pretty Cures, such as (the special Cures didn't count, but including Cure Echo and Cure Flower):
  • Black (Cure Black)
  • White (Cure White, Cure Egret, Cure Rhythm, Cure Echo)
  • Pink (Cure Bloom, Cure Dream, Cure Peach, Cure Blossom, Cure Melody, Cure Happy, Cure Heart, Cure Lovely, Cure Flora, Cure Miracle, Cure Whip, Cure Yell)
  • Red (Cure Rouge, Cure Passion, Cure Ace, Cure Chocola)
  • Yellow (Shiny Luminous, Cure Bright, Cure Lemonade, Cure Pine, Cure Sunshine, Cure Muse, Cure Peace, Cure Rosetta, Cure Honey, Cure Twinkle, Cure Custard, Cure Etoile)
  • Green (Cure Mint, Cure March, Cure Felice, Cure Parfait)
  • Blue (Cure Windy, Cure Aqua, Cure Berry, Cure Marine, Cure Beat, Cure Beauty, Cure Diamond, Cure Princess, Cure Mermaid, Cure Gelato, Cure Ange)
  • Purple (Milky Rose, Cure Moonlight, Cure Sword, Cure Fortune, Cure Magical, Cure Macaron)
  • Orange (Cure Sunny)
All Pink Cures to Suite, including Cure Black who is introduced as Black Cure. Of course, Shiny Luminous is also categorized here.
First let's take a look on this first, Characteristics. The type of Pink Heroine Characteristics are (translated by myself from some episode):
  • AHO a.k.a. stupid (except Luminous and Blossom).
  • Genki (If I'm not wrong, it means energetic).
  • Some are also Dojikko (Means careless)
  • For Bloom and Melody, they both have interest to sports.
  • Always optimistic to face all things.
  • Except Luminous, Dream, Blossom and Flower, only the Pink Heroine that has the power-up in the movie.

If that's the case, then first I will introduces all Pink Heroine first. Let's go!

Items in Suite Pretty Cure

Cure Module (キュアモジューレ, Kyua Mojūre)
Debut: Episode 1
The Cure Module is a Brooch-like device that allows transformation of Pretty Cures. They are originated from the person's heart brooch of G-clef. To transform, a Fairy Tone must be inserted in the top slot of the Cure Module, and say "Let's Play! Pretty Cure Modulation!!" (レッツプレイ!プリキュアモジュレーション!!, Rettsu Purei! Purikyua Mojurēshon!!) and then press the button on the bottom side of the brooch. Besides needs Fairy Tone, the person must also in harmony mood usually with the phrase together "Unforgiveable! (絶対に許さない!Zettai ni yurusanai!)," in order this mood to occur.

In Episode 5 and the toy incarnations of the brooch, Hummy explains that the Cure Module also functions as an Ocarina, which is used to play music if a Fairy Tone is inserted and pressing the four button (or each two buttons in toy incarnation, each button [Pink and White, Blue and Purple] can plays 2 different music). Each Fairy Tone has a different abilities, for example Dory has a power of dream.

Also, like Heart Seed inserted on Heart Perfume in Heartcatch series, other Fairy Tones can be used by the Cure Module to increase Pretty Cure's abilities. For example, Solry can be used to increase Cure's power when it's blowed.

Photo 95
For Cure Muse, she use this item with Tiry to perform the attacks Shining Circle and Sparkling Shower, although she needs to detaches the Cure Module first. The way to make the attack functioned is also the same, playing Ocarina.

Extra: Where the Cure Modules comes out?
The Cure Modules are normally comes from G-Clef from the chosen Pretty Cures, Aphrodite mentions it Heart Tone Key (ハートのト音記号 Hāto no toonkigō; Heart of Treble Clef) because it also has a heart symbol together with G Clef (left). They can came out if the certain circumstances (right), like if they want to do something to protect (like Ako) or they say "Unforgivable!" (by Hibiki and Kanade, then Ellen), causing the potential to become Pretty Cures will woke up (right). Depending the amount of person who gets Cure Module out from their chest, they must transform in pair or even individually.

Legendary Score (伝説の楽譜 Densetsu no Gakufu)
Debut: Episode 1
The pink book that contains music notes for Music Princess to sing in order to protect everyone's happiness, it's called Happiness Melody (幸せのメロディ Shiawase no Merodi, also called Melody of Happiness). The vice versa is Sorrowful Melody (不幸のメロディ Fukou no Merodi; or Melody of Misfortune) where all people becomes sad whoever hears it and to make things even worse, reviving Noise completely. The 4 G Clefs from Pretty Cure were also needed to completely finish it (Pretty Cures give their G Clefs to Minor Land at Episode 43).

Cure Belltiers

Belltier in Bell Mode
The Cure Berthiers are the weapons used by the Pretty Cures (except Cure Muse). They summons secondary Fairy Tones (with primary if they can) to amplify harmony energy and unleash a powerful purification attack to the Negatone.

  • The first two words (Mi, Fa, and So) is depending their Fairy Tones they use, for example Miry in Miracle Belltier Fary in Fantastic Belltier, and Solry for Soul Rod.
  • Bell Mode appears thanks with Cure Muse's help, with separating the Belltier, they can perform their second attack. This Mode first appears in Episode 12.
  • Cross Rod is another version of Stick Mode but the handle is swapped. With this, they can perform their powerful combination attack Music Rondo (see below). This Mode first appears in Episode 16 when Cure Melody and Cure Rhythm decides to defeat Negatone without Cure Muse's help (at that time Cure Muse was still masked and Cure Beat didn't born yet).
    The Belltiers are follows:

    Miracle Belltier

    Debut: Episode 6
    Cure Melody's Belltier is named Miracle Belltier (ミラクルベルティエ Mirakuru Berutie). She summons Miry (and Dory) to amplify harmony energy and unleash multiple attacks to the Negatone depending on the Modes. 

    There are 3 Modes in this weapon, first is Stick Mode (スティックモード Sutikkumōdo), where this is the normal Belltier using Miry to unleash Music Rondo (ミュージックロンド Myūjikku Rondo) attack. Second is Bell Mode (ベル・モード Beru Mōdo), when both Dory and Miry are inserted and the Belltier was separated into two, where can be used to perform Miracle Heart Arpeggio (ミラクルハートアルペジオ Mirakuru Hāto Arupejio). And last is Cross Rod (クロスロッド Kurosu Roddo), where is the same as Stick Mode, but the other handle (Dory) was switched into another Fantastic handle (Rery), where she, along with Rhythm, can use the powerful version of Music Rondo, Music Rondo Super Quartet (ミュージックロンドスーパーカルテット Myūjikku Rondo Sūpā Karutetto).

    In episode 9, Kanade ever dreams about Cure Melody using Miracle Belltier to save her, and not only Cure Melody has the Belltier, also Hummy, Siren, Trio the Minor, her family, Ako and Ouji also have, making her shout why she doesn't have one and wakes up.

    Left: Using Miracle Belltiers to release energy bolts in Episode 14. ; Right: When her hands are trapped by enemy with Cure Rhythm in the movie, summoning Miracle Belltier or Cross Rod are impossible, only getting hurt afterwards.

    Aside from purification attacks, the Miracle Belltier can also release energy bolts onto enemies upon contact. One weakness is that summoning the Belltier requires the use of both hands, so Cure Melody cannot summon her Belltier if her hands are trapped by the enemy (as seen in episode 9 and movie).

    Fantastic Belltier

    Debut: Pretty Cure All Stars DX3, Episode 9
    Cure Rhythm's Belltier is named Fantastic Belltier (ファンタスティックベルティエ Fantasutikku Berutie). She summons Fary (and Rery) to amplify harmony energy and unleash multiple attacks to the Negatone depending on the Modes.

    Like Miracle Belltier, there are 3 Modes in this weapon, the differences are the Fairy Tone used and the attack. For Stick Mode (スティックモード Sutikkumōdo), Rhythm uses Fary to unleash Music Rondo (ミュージックロンド Myūjikku Rondo) attack. In Bell Mode (ベル・モード Beru Mōdo), both Rery and Fary are needed to perform Fantastic Piachere (ファンタスティックピアチェーレ Fantasutikku Piachēre). While in Cross Rod (クロスロッド Kurosu Roddo), the other handle (Rery) was switched into another Miracle handle (Dory) [if you forgot the Cross Rod attack, see Miracle Belltier section].

    Love Guitar Rod

    Debut: Episode 22
    Cure Beat's Belltier is not named of Belltier, instead she named this Love Guitar Rod, and shaped like guitar.

    Unlike the Cure Belltiers, the Love Guitar Rod has two modes on which Cure Beat utilizes for her battle style. These mode are the Guitar Mode (ギターモード Gitā Mōdo), on which Cure Beat uses the Love Guitar Rod as a normal guitar and uses Lary to dispel or protect people from attacks, mainly Beat Sonic (ビートソニック Bīto Sonikku) and Beat Barrier (ビートバリア Bīto Baria). And the Soul Rod Mode (ソウルロッドモード Souru Roddo Mōdo), on which she uses it to amplify harmony energy and unleash a powerful purification attack which in this case, is the attack Heartful Beat Rock (ハートフルビートロック Hātofuru Bīto Rokku) which will purify a Negatone.

    Healing Chest (ヒーリングチェスト Hīringu Chesuto)
    Debut: Episode 29 (24 in 2nd eyecatch)
    A lengendary item in Major Land, and is the residing place of the Crescendo Fairy Tone, as revealed by both Hummy and Cure Muse. The Crescendo Tone can heal the other Fairy Tones, as well as lend great power to the Pretty Cure at times. When it's scanned by hand, the Cresendo Tone will appear from the crystal ball in second eyecatch, also playing piano in the chest will feed the Fairy Tones. It also enable the Pretty Cures to use the attack Suite Session Ensemble (Crescendo with Cure Muse).

    Disney Friends

    Disney Friends Box Front
    I have played this since I'm in Primary School. This is the awesome game that is realeased in February 26 2008. In this game, this is kinda simulatic game but important thing, real time setting! Much I say that the day is set by the time on your DS settings (like Tinker Bell on DS, right?).
    Disney Friends ScreenshotDisney Friends Screenshot
    Anyway, I will let you tell some part of the story. The story starts with you as Guardian. Tinker Bell will guide you for the tutorial. The tutorial first with the Alien in Toy Story. After tutorial, the door leading to Stitch's world (as I remember, he is from Lilo and Stitch) will open. At first, only Stitch's door can you access, but as you earn more Guardian Points, more character will unlock.
    Disney Friends ScreenshotDisney Friends Screenshot
    You usually use stylus to interact with the character. But you can use the button, either. You can speak into MIC on your DS to speak with your character. There are some phrase that only lead to one character only. Hakuna Matata, for example. It's only lead to Simba. Also, you can dress up your character like give them a hat, glasses. Sometimes, they can yawn, hungry, or bored, so give them either time to sleep, food, or something like a toy. But keep in mind that once you play this game, your point of review will be in 1st person view.

    The characters from Disney you will access for besides the Alien are:
    1. Stitch: As mentioned, he is the monster-like creature from Lilo and Stitch.
    2. Dory: Dory from Suite Pretty Cure? No, this blue fish is from Finding Nemo. She is forgetful and absent minded. You can unlock her world's door by receiving Rookie Guardian rank.
    3. Winnie the Pooh: The yellow bear who wears the red shirt from Winnie the Pooh. I know that he always hungry only for honey. You can unlock his world's door by receiving Associate Guardian rank.
    4. Simba: From The Lion King, you can unlock his world's door by achieving Novice Guardian rank.
    Each character has 3 area you can choose to play specific minigames. In there, you can find other character from the movie. You can play multiple times on some minigames at the same day, though some isn't.

    Besides that, certain days is special activities for specified character. Take an example: Tuesday is Two's Day for Pooh, because all the honey values are doubled. Another is Sandwich Day for Stitch, you can pudge the fish with sandwich you buy in the store.

    Disney Friends is somewhat like Nintedogs game. It's very basic though, and I'm not fan of Disney cartoon either. For Disney fans who likes the virtual game, you can play the game just for fun.

    Harvest Moon The Tale of Two Towns

    Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns Box FrontHarvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns Box Front
    Japan and English (DS and 3DS) cover.
    Harvest Moon: The Tale Of Two Towns (牧場物語 ふたごの村 Bokujō Monogatari: Futago no Mura, lit. "Farm Story: Twin Villages") is a good games if you want to choose villages! First released in Japan on 8 July 2010 (previously February 25). The happy news comes to America where this game will released on 1 November 2011 on 3DS and 20 September 2011 on NDS!

    Now comes to the story. Bluebell and Konohana villages were once the friendliest of neighbors. Then a huge dispute erupted between them over food! Both towns were certain that their cooking was the best in the world. This feud went on for a while until things got so bad that the tunnel connecting the two villages was closed off by Harvest Goddess! This feud has transformed these happy neighbors into bitter rivals.

    Choosing a 
GenderThe Crash
    To avoid hitting the fox, the protagonist (again, you can choose as either male or female) accidentally falls down from the horse and collapsed, the mayor Rutger (ルドガー Rudogā; Rudger in Japan; Bluebell) and Ina (イルサ Irusa; Ilsa in Japan; Konohana) wake him/her up. They welcome him/her to their village, but they start arguing, so you (player) choose which village to live in, Eastern-styled Konohana with its abundant fields of crops, or the animal-loving, European-styled Bluebell. Players will pick a home, build a thriving farm, and compete in a huge variety of festivals. If they develop their skills enough, and they might even find a way to bring these two towns together once again!

    Luckily, there are more changes. Here are some:
    First of all, crops. Konohana the “farming” village, so if you like farming choose this instead. Once I have bought the game, I will choose this village because I like farming.

    Anyway, the new crops like Watermelon, Daikon and Bok Choy are appeared here. Yay for you, the crops still grow even in winter! You can till a hoe in a row or in column, as I see in a screenshot. By pressing and holding A button and the direction when you’re tilling your field, you can plant your crops in a row instead of on individual spots called Irrigation Trenches. The more interesting thing, when you water one plant in the row, you water all of them as far as the water in your can will allow. This saves a lot of time and effort when watering. In the same way if you stick a bottle of fertilizer into your field, it affects all the crops in the row instead of just those in the immediate squares. The more thing, you can grow flowers again (but not wild mountain flowers)! Sunflower, Rose, Carnation, and other flowers all in here!

    Next is Animal. Bluebell is the “ranching” village, if you dislikes farming and likes ranching, choose this instead. There are new animals here, Alpaca and Owl. Unfortunately, Alpaca's has a maximum lifespan of 2 years. For the Owl, you can call it outside the village and it will bring you home. Bluebell is kinda boring or so.

    Here are some little guides for all animals from ranchstory.co.uk (with some changes):
    Animals (can be raised)
    Cows: Profitable animals. As of previous Harvest Moon games, cows provide milk as always.
    Sheep: Profitable animals. Sheep do what they have done, provide the wool. As of now, there are three types: pink, white, and black.
    Alpaca: Profitable animals. New member to the HM family, no one knows what these cute creatures do yet. There are two types of them, white and brown. Alpacas seem to give you high quality wool.

    From the Wild Animal (you can feed them to become friends)
    Bears: You can spot them at the mountain, but at first it will attack you!
    Boar: Same as bears, it also attacks you.
    Monkey: Seems it likes Bananas.
    Panda: You can spot them at the mountain between 9pm to 5am.
    Fox: There's a place in the mountains where these little yellow animals inhibit.
    There also more, Duck, Mouse, Rabbit, Racoon, Sparrow, and Weasel.

    Pets (can be raised in your farm)
    Cat: Like Grand Bazaar, it will raise chicken (I mean, took the chicken into outside the barn).
    Dog: Like Grand Bazaar, but there are 2 types. There are Small Dog (raise cows) and Big Dog (raise sheeps and alpacas)
    Horses: Profitable animals. Horses can pull carts that contain goods.
    Fish: Domestic animal. When you catch fish, you can put them in your pond and start feeding them. Slowly they will get bigger and becomes high quality.
    Bees: Profitable animals. Also a new animal, they give honey once a week except Winter.
    Owl: Profitable animals. An adorable owl, another new member, they allow transportation between villages. Apparently they can sit on your head.

    For the non-domestic animals, usually you can saw them in the Mountain. You can use the mushroom to jump into new heights, find wild items, fishing (bare hand or with rod), and more! You can also find bugs in here.

    Mining is back! But with some changes, you can enter the mine after you complete Eileen's quest (in Bluebell village). You are in dark area when you come to the stairs. Go to some area and 'press' to get the ore. Watch out to the water hole that sprinkles a water or you will pulled out from the mine and lost some stamina!

    To do mining, you must do this difficult way, so pay attention! (thanks to Owen by his/her guide in Harvest Moon Forum, with changes!)

    You have to 1st upgrade one of the farms to 100% by getting every expansion possible. Then Eileen will post a request at the beginning of the next season to open the mine, or she might also offer to build a hotspring. But keep in mind, you have to be living on the fully upgraded farm at the change of the season for the request to appear. If you get a farm to 100% then move to the other one at the end of the season and it isnt at 100%, then you won't get the request.

    But until then, the only way to get different gems, minerals and ores is by finding them, inside the tunnel or in the mountains, usually in the cracks in the walls behind the waterfall on the Konohana side and in the crack on the lower Bluebell area.

    The new here is request like Rune Factory. A lot of requests are random, a villager will ask you for a random item that can be found during that season, and also possibly ask you to deliver it to a random person, pretty boring. You can find out the item, and the person who you're supposed to deliver it to, by pressing Y while selecting that request on the requests screen. But it's good after I play it, when I saw the shelves on the Konohana Town Hall (I live in Konohana) there are 5 ranks on the request, D, C, B, A, and S. I don't know what the color of A and S, but be careful, the higher the rank, the more difficult the request, but you will get rare items!

    Extra: (The item will be in the body of the message, the person will be at the top. It will also show a cow if the person lives in Bluebell, or a turnip if the person lives in Konohana).

    The next section is festival. There are many more festival, some festival is the one village-only. There are: Cherry Blossom Viewing, Children's Day, Critter Contest, Angling Contest, Star Gazing FestivalMoon Viewing Festival, and Snow Festival (*Blue is Bluebell only and Red is Konohana only). ALMOST all seasons have Cooking Festival! First is Salad category, next is Soup category, then Main Dishes category, and finally Desert category! OMG! But, if you don't have high quality dishes to participate, you can also cheer them if you want (I ever choose to cheer Team Konohana and won, I also get the reward too). For my record, I participate Winter Cooking Festival at Main Dish in Year 2, I brought Omelet Rice and my team wons, and I get Shrine Cart! So depending your year, win or lose, you can get Seeds, Wine, and Carts (if you can, can you also tell me another reward beside these?).

    About Cooking Festival, let's see... In your Spring of the 1st Year, depending on village you are living in, different recipe. Thanks to Youtube video contains lives in Bluebell (at that Year I live in Konohana) so I can write this (incomplete yet, if you have information about this, comment me):
    Salad: Caprese Salad (Bluebell), Cucumber Namul (Konohana)
    Soup: Herb Soup (Konohana)
    Main Dish: Spaghetti (Konohana)
    Dessert: Pudding (Konohana)
    Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns ArtworkHarvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns Artwork
    Then, the village. As I say, Bluebell is the “ranching” village and Konohana the “farming” village, but you can start keeping cows and chickens in Konohana right away, and you can grow crops in Bluebell too, but more cons. For example, when you enter Bluebell, you can buy seeds, but only flower seeds in that town. So, to get crop and tree seeds and also green fertilizer, you should travel on the mountain (or cross the tunnel if the 3 tunnel expansion request was complete) to get them. Same as Konohana, if you want raising animals in Konohana you should travel all away to Bluebell to get some (except pets in Kana Animals, though). Even better, you can up and move to the other village between the 23rd and the 30th of every season if you want.
    The brand new in this game are clothes. You will start as village clothes (depending the village you choose). Its unknown how to get this, either from request from Nori (from Konohana village) or Oracle (who want you to be a guinea pig). But, you need some wool or alpaca wool and money in order to get it.

    The bachelor and bachelorettes are both reappears. As mentioned, you can play either as a male or female. The only difference is the person will you married later.

    The mentioned bachelors are: Ash (アーシュ Āshu) who is responsible for take care of animals from animal shop, Cam (カミル Kamiru; Kamil in Japan) who sells flowers, Dirk (ディルカ Diruka; from Grand Bazaar) who takes his job as a postman, Hiro (チヒロ Chihiro; Chihiro in Japan) who is Ayame's apprentice doctor, Kana (キリク Kiriku; Kiriku in Japan) who opens a pet shop, and Mikhail (ミハイル  Mihairu; Michael in Japan; special bachelor). While the bachelorettes are: Alisa (アリエラ Ariera; from Island of Happiness and Sunshine Islands) who is the priestess, Georgia (ラズベリー Razuberī; Raspberry in Japan), Laney (リア Ria; Lia in Japan) who is Howard's father,  Nori (ナナ  Nana; Nana in Japan) who can give you clothes if you complete her request, Oracle (賢者さま Kenja-sama; Sage in Japan; special bachelorette) who works on alchemy a lot and Reina (リコリス   Rikorisu, Licorice in Japan) who studies plants.

    This game has a very awesome feature, if you a beginner or ever played Harvest Moon, this game is very recommended.

    Thank you for fogu.com with some help with me! More coming soon!

    I also found this site: http://udccf.org/hm10/
    Anyway, I also play the game on my DSi and with R4 3DS and I chose Konohana (my character is girl and named Himawa, I have successfully reconicled two towns again and I focus to expanding my Konohana farm to 100% to unlock another construction request by Eileen).
