Firstly, Happy Halloween!
This picture has more Halloween feel than this ep.
The main thing we should focus on this ep is not Halloween, it is Muse attacks and group transformation. The animation is good as usual. Since they can make Beat transform with Melody and Rhythm together, so does Muse. For the group pose, as Muse is short enough, so she bends into the group well by putting her in front of Melody.
About the attack, my first thought is ...they are quite lazy for her weapon. What we see her piano attack previously is family attack (i.e. any of major family members can use, like Otokichi.). However, from her attack,it can be confirmed that she is defensive Precure. Oh yes, what she use for her attack? it is Cure Module. You may ask why Melody, Rhythm and Beat have their weapons, whereas she doesn't have... In commercial wise, starting from 5GG, they usually promote two weapons only, such as Cure Fleur & Milky Palette, Cure Stick & Passion Harp, Flower Tact & Shiny Tambourine, and now Berither and Lovely Guitar. Hence, Muse use Cure Module, the only item can put Tiri in.
If she has a weapon, hers may be a small organ/piano. Perhaps they think that Module can represent as a small organ. However, there will cause a problem for Cure Module. Melody, Rhythm and Beat's Module only can use as if Heart Purfume(their original setting is like this), suddenly Muse can use it as attack...since she can use as attack, the other three should have the same function, shouldn't they?
I am quite appreciated on her shadow star attack(although it looks like LCGF), but the finisher...is Lemonade Flash/Shining in music version. We had seen Lemonade Flash in sunflower version, now it is music ver., so next series...smiling face ver.(I had heard next series is called Smile Precure...about the short form of that series, that's easy- =)PC)
The story is divided into three parts- Otokichi history with Noise, Mephisto's love of Ako, Ako's experience in Halloween. Ako is another Tsuntere(well, four of them are tsuntere). We know her from the beginning, this ep is just a recap. That Otokichi history...looks like an additional setting for Noise. I find it is not logical for sucking peoples' sadness power because this series is unlike Fresh, telling us that they make people unfortunate for Fuko juice in the beginning. Their initial setting is making the people in the world sad only. Moreover, Noise has an ability to make the notes disappear (from what I heard,Noise can suck all the notes in different world), then why Minor Trio collect the notes for, from ep 1 until now? Also, Falsetto now doesn't require Baritone and Bassdra to collect notes for him. For the purpose of building that big organ, I expected he uses for defeating Noise since I knew he belonged to Major family last ep. Mephisto's love of Ako...well, in the beginning, I found him comical like Bunbee, but I couldn't see he is so crazy of daughter (Loli)...anyway, after this ep, there is none of his business until the end of the series.
Regarding to the fight, apart from Muse's performance, I can't see Minor Trio really power up. Baritone and Bassdra has nothing to do after being monsters. Falsetto can defend from CT attack, but he can't defend from PH? It looks weird! Previously, Golem was defeated by PH (because they don't have fairy tones, they have to use this attack.). Few eps ago, Mephisto can defend from PH, but he can't defend from CT. I remembered I had commented that he is too weak as a king. Now Falsetto can't even defend from PH...it means PH>CT!? then why SPC need the Healing Box? I know this ep is for Muse attack, but they should not show CT attack before Muse attack. (or CT attack should not appear in this ep)
Story wise...because their setting now is almost different from the beginning...I just want to know how they end the series with Minor Trio + Noise...and Ouji-kun...it had been a long time not seeing him. The fight today is worse than Beat's introduction.
There is an issue I would like to discuss is the storyline after adding new members.
In FwPC series and PC5, there is no such problem because the member are fixed to the end of the series. Luminous is added in MH, but they introduce her in the beginning of the series. They provide enough space for her development.
In 5GG, Milky Rose is added in ep 10, but Milky Rose=Milk, so after her identity is revealed, the story won't be affected. The story still goes with
Pc5 find 4 kings>go to Cure Rose Garden>accept Flora's offer.
The enemy always want to have Rose Pad and Cure Rose Garden.
The only setting change is Monblanc's rank, from Prince to King.
Starting from FPC, the new members usually appears in ep 23-24.
In FPC, after Passion joins in, they spend many eps to describe her...which doesn't affect the main storyline. Labyrinth still collect Fuko juice, however, since FPC never make the juice drip away, Labyrinth can finish the task earlier than expected.
At first, the storyline goes...FPC prevent the FUKO gauge full>The enemy make the gauge full at the end of the series>Get the infinity>the world is in danger
In ep 35, the enemy complete the task too early. Hence, the storyline becomes.... FPC and Labyrinth strive for Chiffon>Get the infinity>the world is in danger
They put one more step here, so that the series can stretch to ep 40+
In HCPC, because Moonlight is leading the whole story, as long as Moonlight is there, the storyline won't out of the topic.
It goes..Moonlight was defeated by DA>Moonlight can't be Precure> other Precure appears to encourage her fighting against DA> Moonlight & others duet with DA
Moonlight line is fixed, but Coupe and Dune line are lost. Coupe, so-called Zetsubou II, after ep 13, he never appears until ep 32. Ep 27 is a clue for Zetsubou II's identity. Some of you may disagree, but I can feel that Zetsubou II=Coupe is the setting they add after the series starts. If this setting is already there in the beginning, they can still make him appears between ep 14-31. Dune...his setting is quite rush, esp the last ep...we can only know what he hate in the comic version...Sabaku=Yuri's father I believe it is set in the beginning, but his past seems to be an additional setting due to the appearance of movie characters.
and SPC now, in the beginning, the story goes...SPC and Minor group strive for notes> complete the score>sing the song>the world is in danger. However, after Muse joins in, the story becomes...SPC prevent Minor group collecting the sadness power>wake Noise up> the world is in danger>Otokichi's organ vs Noise
What I want to say is that after 5GG, they tend to create additional settings when the new members join in. Among three recent series, only HCPC keeps the main storyline (without additional settings, those additional settings like Coupe, Precure Palace, Dune won't affect the main line) from the beginning to the end.
Next series, =)PC, I really hope that they plan the whole story wisely.
1. Otokichi history-It is about Otokichi's brave warrior legend. XD What he does is the same as Cure Flower. The difference is Otokichi successfully seal Noise into a stone. (but how Minor group find that stone?*A*) He also can use the attack, which is the same as Muse. Both Ako and Otokichi can use piano attack, i.e. Aphrodite also can use. (but I don't know if Mephisto can)
2. Mephisto's apology and his love of Ako- Knowing his crime in the past, he feel guilty (Be Guilty?). He apologize to all family members (but mainly to Otokichi). On the other hand, he wants Ako to be back to Major Land, Ako intends to stay. SPC volunteer themselves to be Ako's guardian (Otokichi is already her guardian...), so Mephisto let Ako stay in the human world without worries. According to last ep, we know that he is so-called silly father. He loves his daughter very much. Ako knows about this, but sometimes he goes too far (like the echoic phrase"very very cute Ako"), making her embarrass.
3. Minor Trio power up- Falsetto had been "powered up" (his case can be called Chara Nari)in last ep; Baritone and Bassdra also can power up...but they have to sacrifice their beautiful faces..(Bassdra's can't say beautiful, but he has a viewable look)However, we can't see their new power in this ep. Falsetto's new ability is using his voice to disturb SPC CT attack.
4. Souta x Ako- Finally, this pair is proved. Please see Picture Rhythm for details.
5. Muse attacks- Her weapon is Cure Module. The attack name are Precure Shining Circle and Sparkling Shower. She also can do CT attack with others.
#############################Hibiki Story fine################################
Most of the pictures are from 2ch.
The first shocking scene should be this one- meeting parent! Souta (Ako's boyfriend) meet Mephisto (Ako's father)! When you meet Sousuke (Souta's Dad), Ako? XD
This kind of Yuri play can't be omitted in the movie.
Beat Vs Nuts II?
This scene...is almost the same as the Dessert Queen in 5GG movie.
Let us review Minor Trio in the past...
and now they still argue for leader position...by the way, when they collect notes again?
Falsetto: the leader is me.
His power can press them down, they can't argue for leader anymore.
Falsetto is also aesthetic, he doesn't allow his subordinate more beautiful than him.
Baritone:....my beautiful face.....
Although they always quarrel for leader, when Bassdra is in danger, Baritone will save him. What an Ikemen!
Falsetto, beware of that stone =p
Meanwhile, SPC has a discussion on the current situation...(we also want to know)
Hummy and fairy tone prepares (and eats) snacks while listening..we should do the same thing.
(When I watch this ep, I am eating my breakfast)
This is old man story time.
Otokichi: Once upon a time (when?), when Major land is invaded...
What? this Godzilla shadow is Noise...? Please have a better look at the end of the series.
I thought I am watching SPC movie ad...
Ako can use, so does Otokichi! This series is the first series having
human warrior! FwPC also has a warrior, but he is a mascot.
Otokichi: I manage to seal Noise.
My concern is how you deal with this huge stone in the past. How can you let other discover this stone?
According to Otokichi, Negatone makes the people in order to produce the sad energy to Noise.
What is this FPC+Wedding Peach setting?
If so, please tell us in the first place!
This is the organ (secret weapon) Otokichi build over 30 eps....it is ready to play.
Actually, Major couple are listening to this old man story as well.
To be responsible as a Major king, firstly he has to apologize...
and then he promise to protect Major Land from Noise....
However, when Ako appears on the mirror, Mephisto become silly father...
Mephisto is worried about Ako staying in the human world.
Don't worry! SPC Trio already treat her as little sister.
Mephisto: Please take care my very cute Ako, very cute Ako, very cute Ako...(infinite)
To adapt into human world, the first festival she should know today is Halloween!
In this ep, Ako can act as princess without telling others her identity.
Mephisto will be crazy when he see Ako like this.
Souta is stunned for her appearance...(blush as well)
Kanade: Um~Souta, you like Ako?
Souta Who say!?
Ellen: You are blushed!
Ako is also blushed. Souta x Ako is proved!
On another moment, Souta's rival XD appears! He cosplays Ako's prince!
Westar: This is called romance....
Nameke: (node) (node)
Being comment on Minor Duo's appearance as disguise...
Minor Duo: This is not DISGUISE!!T^T (We also hope our face now is only a disguise...)
Pumpkin Negatone! Expected...
A line up of their cosplay....
Hibiki-Gokai-red (human form)
Kanade- Ojamajo Urara, this one:
Expectedly, we can see 4 cure transformation today. Ako has to stand more to center because she is too short. There is one thing I have to point out, she doesn't wear glasses before henshin.
This earing scene must be included.
This group pose looks better than individual for Muse...but she give me Chibimoon feel.
Don't misunderstand this scene, she is not promoting Cure Module...
This attack is called Shining circle. Why it is called circle, not star?Creating 4 more shadows and form a star platform to freeze the enemy, is a nice magical attack, but it is nothing to do with music (unlike Beat sonic)
What is Muse eating?
Melody: Yes, it is Melody Candy. (The candy is given by Melody, so it is called Melody Candy)
If human who is not summoned by My Melo and eat this candy, they will faint. (because it is too sweet)
but it won't be affected to Major Princess.
See, she can even use CT attack with SPC.
Falsetto: Listen to my song!!
His singing voice had been powered up that..
It cause uncomfort to SPC...
Rhythm: This is Unfortunate Melody?
No, it is just his singing voice.
What? the first CT attack 4 cure ver. is failed?
SPC: Don't worry! Passionato Harmony!!
but I am worried...
Can't you use weapon attack?
and Falsetto can't defend....
Another Open heart? Muse, you really watch anime too much....
I don't know what she form the circle for, since this circle is not musical rondo..
She is blowing something...before next picture, I notice of her inner hair. It seems a long wig cover her short hair...(so Muse herself is also a cosplay?)
Look carefully, they are notes!
So-called Sparkling Shower is just another Lemonade Flash in music ver.
Her attack is not musical rondo, but she throws out notes, she need to count beat as well.
10! 10! 10!
Yet it is a bad example for children- you should not stand in front of the explosion (Rhythm's walk away is a better option for kid Precure)
If we want to know more about Muse, ask Dodori.
Muse: Don't voice out my feeling without my permission!!
Falsetto also has this funny face?
What is this Syrup+Angry Bird creature?
Title: PachiPachiPachi! Mysterious encounter is a new start!
6th Nov...what a important day... it is Otokichi's birthday, as well as a voting day for Hong Kong District Council...
