Happiness Charge Pretty Cure!

Another exciting series which will be interesting if you read more! This will be airing in February 2, 2014 and directed by Tatsuya Nagamine after a 49-episode DokiDoki! Pretty Cure ends and airs alongside Kyoryuger for last two episodes for two weeks before being replaced by Tokkyuger, as well as Kamen Rider Gaim 30 minutes before. Let's take a look, folks!

All around the world, Pretty Cures have been fighting against the invasion of the enemy known as Saiark! Hime Shirayuki, the Blue Sky Kingdom princess is in fact a Pretty Cure, but unable to defeat the enemy alone, she is fallen behind the others and is in a quite a terrible situation. Then, on her quest to find a partner, she meets Megumi Aino (Cure Lovely) and they begin to battle the enemy together. Having learned that assembling all PreCards, one can get any one wish fulfilled, the team up with the fairy Ribbon to protect the world peace, transform, dress up and form change as they fight! With the dress-up theme beloved by girls, a completely different Pretty Cure story begins!

Pretty Cures
Like Cure Sword previous series, Cure Honey and Cure Fortune aren't introduced her civilian form by Toei itself until the middle of the series. For more information later when the series airs, please check: http://himawarimawari.blogspot.com/2011/06/pink-heroine-of-pretty-cure.htmlhttp://himawarimawari.blogspot.com/2011/06/blue-heroine-in-pretty-cure-series.htmlhttp://himawarimawari.blogspot.com/2011/07/yellow-heroine-in-pretty-cure.html, and http://himawarimawari.blogspot.com/2011/08/purple-and-red-heroine-in-pretty-cure.html

Unfortunately, all first names for the Cures in this series are all hiragana again, let's hope that the next series didn't hold this tradition like what Futari wa, Yes! 5, Heartcatch, and Smile does.

Seiyuu: Megumi Nakajima
Like Tsubomi from Heartcatch, she's the only one to usually tie her hair among her team in civilian form, this time in ponytail. The protagonist whose redeeming features are her happy-go-lucky attitude and smile. When people who feel troubled or depressed want to be left alone, she unintentionally meddles in their issues but her awkward personality often her attempts for doing so ended in failure. However she thoroughly looks to the positive and is skilled at seeing the good in people. She has an interest in cute fashion, but her sense of it isn't as good as Hime. Her standard signature color is pink, and she can change into two alternate forms, the red Cherry Flamenco (チェリーフラメンコ Cherī Furamenko) and the yellow Lollipop Hip Hop"(ロリポップヒップホップ Roripoppu Hippu Hoppu).

Hime Shirayuki  (白雪 ひめ Shirayuki Hime) / Cure Princess (キュアプリンセス Kyua Purinsesu)

The princess of the Blue Sky Kingdom, a rather selfish and spoiled fashion victim. To save the Blue Sky Kingdom from being totally ruled by the evil organization of the Phantom Kingdom (where she curiously open the Axia Box to cause this happen), she becomes a Pretty Cure, except she is easily scared and will immediately try to escape from in the middle of fights. Because of her shyness, she never had friends until meeting Megumi. Her standard signature color is light blue, and she can change into two alternate forms, the dark blue / purple Sherbet Ballet (シャーベットバレエ Shābetto Baree) and the green Macadamia Hula Dance (マカダミアフラダンスMakadamia Fura Dansu)

In episode 10, she reveals herself to be the singing Pretty Cure, Cure Honey, who had received a Crystal of Love from Blue prior to the series and first appeared in Pretty Cure All Stars New Stage 3: Eien no Tomodachi, officially joining the team in episode 11. Her main weapon is the Honey Baton (Triple Dance Honey Baton in roleplay toy and CM), which uses three modes; Baton / Microphone Mode for singing soothing melodies that put her enemies in a trance, Ribbon Mode which lets her tie up her opponents with ribbons, and Maracas Mode which lets her heal her allies. Her alternate forms are blue Popcorn Cheer (ポップコーンチア Poppukōn Chiā) and orange Coconuts Samba (ココナッツサンバ Kokonattsu Sanba).
Iona Hikawa / Cure Fortune (キュアフォーチュン Kyua Fōchun)
Seiyuu: Haruka Tomatsu
Previously aloof Cure helps the weak and has a strong sense of justice and a gentleness when she consoles people. With her sense of duty as a Cure and her excellent fighting skills, she goes on her own to bring down the Saiark one by one and wants to avenge her sister, Maria Hikawa (Cure Tender), who was one of the victim Cure by Phantom, but holds a grudge against Hime who was responsible for opening the Axia Box, causing that to happen. Her standard signature color is purple. Although has PreChanMirror and LovePreBrace, she lost it at her hopeless battle against Phantom in Episode 22, and was replaced by Fortune Piano and Fortune Tambourine as exchange, as well as two alternate forms which are pink Anmitsu Komachi (あんみつこまち Anmitsu Komachi) and turqoise Pine Arabian (パインアラビアン Pain Arabian).

3 out of 10 (as of September 22nd, 2016)
-    Attacks are quite good, main or sub attack.
-   I love how they can use Disguise card.
-     The story giving us the total turn halfway through the story, forgetting the second wish on PreCard.
-     3D attacks for Form Change. Become less often used after obtaining Innocent Form.
-   Shining Make Dresser attacks, Happiness Big Bang of makeups and Innocent Purification using song.
