Healin’ Good ♡ PreCure Episode 22: Unstoppable Feelings

In the twenty-second episode of Healin’ Good ♡ PreCure, you’ll be able to see right through Asumi. Asumi’s feelings prove to be a little much for Latte, and apparently Asumi has quite a unique way of expressing sadness.

Asumi & Latte

Asumi is overprotective of Latte

In this episode, Asumi insists on taking care of Latte. However, she goes to extreme lengths to do so, which results in Latte avoiding her. Asumi doesn’t take well to being rejected and starts fading away. Chiyu takes it upon herself to help Asumi understand the feelings she has.

Fading Asumi

Asumi’s looking a little transparent

The previous episode was about Nodoka’s interactions with Asumi, and this time around it is Chiyu. Don’t worry; Hinata will get her turn. I’m glad to see that Asumi is completely hogging the spotlight.

Chiyu helps Asumi understand her feelings

Part of this episode is quite simply Chiyu spending some quality time with Asumi, talking about what it means to “like” something. Asumi is still pretty naive in the ways of the world, so it is up to Nodoka, Chiyu and Hinata to help her out.

Chiyu practicing high jump

It is nice to see Chiyu back at the high jump again. Of course, that is something she likes, and will keep doing even with repeated failures. This is all just to demonstrate a point to Asumi. Regardless of what it is, I’m happy to see Chiyu jumping again. I’m still convinced there’s going to be a point where she’ll have to choose between innkeeping and high jump, but that’s potentially a story for a future episode.

Monster of the Week

Powered up Mega Byo-gen

Right on schedule, Shindoine brings a Mega Byo-gen along to disrupt proceedings. Whilst Asumi’s busy fading away, Nodoka, Chiyu and Hinata take it upon themselves to fight. They do fine, until the Mega Byo-gen is powered up with Mega Parts.

Asumi goes back to normal

Whilst Grace, Fontaine and Sparkle do their thing, Asumi is able to come to terms with her own feelings and make amends with Latte. No longer fading away, she joins the fight.

Cure Earth joins the fight

Better late than never, I suppose

The fight against the Mega Byo-gen concludes. One thing that I want to note is that the way PreCure use the Element Bottles during battle brings to mind the Linkle Stones from Maho Girls PreCure! – or more specifically, the ones that Cure Miracle and Cure Magical use in Diamond Style. I think that’s a neat little similarity.

There’s all kinds of things out there that Asumi will experience

This episode wraps up, and it was yet another enjoyable one. I had thought that it might have specifically focused on Asumi, so it was certainly a pleasant surprise to see Chiyu get some focus, too.
Seems like this set of episodes are all about Asumi’s interactions with Nodoka, Chiyu and Hinata respectively. Two down, and one to go.

So next time, it is Hinata’s turn. Seems like she’ll be teaching Asumi the concept of cute.
