It’s been a long old wait, but all the episodes up to number 29 of Maho Girls PreCure! have now been subbed at the time of writing. I’m going to continue covering each one, with one post a day for each episode until I’ve caught up.
In episode 26, Kotoha makes a decision, and there’s an important battle.
They do that in order to show their gratitude. Kotoha decides she should show gratitude to Mirai and Riko by baking some cookies for them.
Haa struggles through, and bakes the cookies. Of course, she gives them to Mirai, Riko and Mofurun.
Elsewhere, Yamoh confirms that he only has one of Dokurokushe’s bones left, and swears to obtain the Emerald – you know, the usual stuff.
During the night, or early hours of the morning, Kotoha leaves the house.
The next morning, Mirai and Riko discover that Mofurun has disappeared as well as Kotoha. Whilst out in the town, Kotoha finds herself followed by someone.
Kotoha assumes its the enemy, and makes a break for it. Her magic stops working, so she isn’t able to fly away on her broom. Of course, this allows her pursuer to catch up to her.
Kotoha and Mofurun go and sit on a bench, where Mofurun suggests that Kotoha couldn’t use her magic because of her emotional state. Kotoha also tries one of the cookies she baked.
Yamoh approaches Kotoha, and uses the last of Dokurokushe’s power to transform.
Kotoha attempts to transform, but her magic fails her. This makes her easy prey for Yamoh.
Probably owing to Mirai and Riko’s motherly instincts, they arrive almost immediately.
Kotoha tells them to run away, but Miracle and Magical have no such plans. The Pink Tourmaline Linkle Stone ends up responding to kindness and caring, thus freeing Kotoha. With her emotions sorted out, she transforms.
Of course, Cure Felice gets the honour of finishing their foe. Yamoh is defeated, and then we learn something about Rabu.
I guess this type of episode is inevitable in shows like this – the one where a character feels they’re endangering their friends because they possess something an enemy desires. Still, that doesn’t mean it’s not enjoyable.
Of course, the battle against Yamoh is the highlight of this episode for me – particularly as during the first half Cure Miracle and Cure Magical have a chance to actually do something. It’s also confirmed that Cure Felice can use Linkle Stones other than the Emerald on her Flower Echo Wand.
This is also the end of an arc. It would seem that we have finished with all the stuff involving Dokurokushe, which means it’s about time to move on to the next enemy.
Next time, it’s back to the Magic World for a summer break, and Rabu finally starts actively doing stuff.
