For those of you who follow the various anime news sites, I’m sure you’re well aware of what this piece of news is, but I’ll be sharing it anyway.
This piece of news also contains spoilers for episode 22 of Maho Girls PreCure!, so if you’d rather go into that episode completely blind, you might want to give this post a miss.
With that said and done, what, exactly, does Maho Girls PreCure! have in store for us?
Right, this piece of news concerns Haa, and has been announced on Toei’s official website for Maho Girls PreCure!. I’m pretty sure us PreCure fans saw this coming from a mile away, but it’s nice to have some official confirmation.
As you can see above, episode 22 is where Cure Felice will make her debut. It also seems that Haa’s rapid growth will continue, as the news states that she will become a teenager. As Kotoha Hanami, she will transform into Cure Felice to fight alongside Cure Miracle and Cure Magical. She wields the Flower Echo Wand. Saori Hayami will continue to voice the character.
Cure Felice is expected to appear in the upcoming feature film due to be released on October 29th as well.
All right, that’s all the official news. I think I’ll indulge in a bit of speculation now.
Going by her colour scheme, Cure Felice will be using the power of the Emerald Linkle Stone. I don’t know whether she’ll be able to use the different Styles that Cure Miracle and Cure Magical do. Though if I’m correct about her using the power of the Emerald, than it’s likely that Cure Felice will solely use ‘Emerald Style’, at least until the inevitable super power-up Cures tend to get at the end of the end of a season.
However, like I said, this is only speculation. I’m sure other fans have their own theories as to how Cure Felice’s powers will work, and I invite you to share them here.
I’m a fan of Cure Felice’s design, though I’d still say the Sapphire Style is my favourite overall. Of course, I’m also interested to see what fellow PreCure fans think of Cure Felice’s new design as well.
So, in episode 22, Haa completes her evolution and it looks like she’ll be a Fairy and Grass type. Actually, I’m glad that Haa has been confirmed as the third Cure – I feel like she’s really the only one that deserves that honour. Don’t get me wrong, the other characters have been pretty great thus far, it’s just that at this point, Mirai, Riko, Mofurun and Haa are pretty much a family. I feel like the 22nd episode is going to be quite a good one.
Hopefully Haa – or rather, Kotoha, will find someone to be close to – of course, another female character would be ideal. If Mirai and Riko are comparable Nanoha and Fate, then Haa would be Vivio and hopefully she’ll find her Einhart.
OK, that’s wishful thinking, but considering how Maho Girls PreCure! has been thus far… well, it wouldn’t be a surprise.
So, as I’ve said, if you have any thoughts on Cure Felice – whether it’s speculation about her powers, opinions on her design, anything else – feel free to leave a comment.
