Hikaru meets aliens Lala, Prunce, and Fuwa while watching the night sky. She learns of the "Star Palace," where the 12 Star Princesses of the constellations kept the balance of the universe until they were attacked. Lala is searching for the legendary Precure warriors to help find the 12 scattered "Princess Star Color Pens" and revive the princesses. When Fuwa is captured by an enemy, Hikaru wishes to save Fuwa, and a Star Color Pendent and a Star Color Pen appear to allow her to transform into Cure Star. From then on she works to collect the pens and raise Fuwa, who is the key to reviving the princesses.
Normally, I would wait until the run of a series before offering a review. It could well be that I will update my review once Star Twinkle completes the last dozen or so episodes. This is, more or less, a modest suggestion for the cast of the show (and the people that make them go). If you could invest the time to take in a course on epistemology. Please. Honestly, the flow of ideas on this version of Pretty Cure scares me (by the way, looking forward to the Halloween episode). I’m happy that Cure Star in the closing theme “Just wants to know the truth,” but gaining insight from the stars via the powers of telepathy. HMMMMMM! Hikaru Hoshina (Cure Star) is a novelty among the leaders of the Precure teams, an eccentric at best. But to describe her (this is very difficult matter of proper word choice … insane is not accurate, nor nice … the same goes with demented, not the word, not the word, just not the word!) … well, think of the boat with the wonderfully matched set of oars which do not extend far enough to make contact with the bay. There are features of Star Twinkle which take contrasting strides away from the usual formula. For example, Nagisa’s (Cure Black) parents run a bakery; in New Stage 3, Nagisa’s dream is to be a baker. Much the same throughout. Cure Diamond desires to follow her mother’s role as doctor Cure Ange is concerned that her mother’s dream of having her pursue acting will not be fulfilled as she wishes to be a pediatrist. Hikaru’s mother is a mangaista, which is fine (such is Cure Peace’s dream); but her father is a wandering adventurer in search of aliens. Even the grandfather is concerned about the issue of parental abandonment. But this is what we've come to accept as the 'norm.' Hikaru is unsteady in personality. In a recent episode, Madoka will withdraw from her position as student council president, and she suggests that Hikaru will be an ideal president. Hikaru campaigns but doesn’t know her mind well enough to develop her own vision of presidency, just do what Madoka would do. She learns that her opponent does have a good platform and concedes the election. I first thought this was noble, but then wondered what compelled Hikaru to run. More inconsistency. This, and the trouble I am having with this curious blending of the genres of fantasy and science fiction. The elements of both are evident, but in the Pretty Cure structure, at best the two genres stumble over each other. At worst, they hurl on each other. Charming stories, yes, but space travel has an edge to it which fantasy seems to co-opt, not adopt. I hope that a clear strategy toward the defeat of the Not-raiders and the forces of Darkenest snaps forward. At this point, I pause to wonder which way will it go. It's as if the show is awash in a sea of confusion and the wind swept dinghy (Wait ... could it be ... ultra revelation, this is the word I've been searching for! Not insane, not demented ... dinghy ... or something that sounds like that) is short of capsizing.
There is no discussion yet for this series.
