This week we have to say farewell to Wester and Soular...Sayonara...
The first ep in 2010, Toei gives us a good ep! The director and art director are Narita and Kawamura (the main director and character design for PC5 series), so the story and drawing are guaranteed. Let's review the story:
According to last ep, they go to Labyrinth by Akarun...but why it take such a long time to go there?
Ok, they reach Labyrinth at last.
This composition... as if Passion is the main character...
Labyrinth is Setsuna's homeland...Setsuna's feeling is complicated now...
Peach comforts her by holding her hand.
In the main base, Cline is managing the world they dominate...
Cline: We had dominated 73% of the whole parallel world...We can dominate all of them after 3 hours 27 minutes and 51 seconds
Moebius: The world will be in my hand soon...
All the citizen are heading to the base...to Moebius...
FPC want to go to the base, but the citizens are going to there too...
Pine: Let's release our transformation!
In 2ch (the forum that post the ep once it is aired), someone asks why FPC didn't use Blrun...
I agree with that at first. Why they didn't think of using Blrun? They are too obvious in this picture (except Miki, her clothes is partially matched other citizens' clothes)...However, these people don't really care of them.
According to Setsuna, Labyrinth people are indifferent. They won't care of anything and help others.
There is only a thought in their mind--to be the servant of Moebius
Hence, when FPC talk to this Labyrinth girl,
She is shocked...at least she has some expression.
Now come to our MAIN characters--Soular and Wester!
As it is the last ep for them, they will try our best to be very cool guys!
They request Moebius to let them defeat FPC...
Moebius: you two lose to them so many times...
Soular & Wester: Please give us one more chance!
Soular & Wester lose sometimes is not because of FPC, Chiffon and the director lead to their failure too.
Moebius: Ok, this is your last chance.
Norza is sneering1? it seems she know that this is their last day...
Wester and Soular want to say to Norza "Don't be so happy! We will be back!"
and their cool face become the title picture.
Meanwhile, FPC reach the entrance of the base successfully.
Sorewatase is waiting for them!!
This part looks like those RPG game..
It may be the last time we see this henshin, it shows partially full henshin of all cures.
Is it because the director and art director are related to PC5? FPC suddenly has this new attack--
*Peach: Quadruple Precure Shooting Star!
*she doesn't say that in the show
The master of Precure Shooting StarXD
Due to Shooting Star, they get into the building. (but Sorewatase hasn't die yet).
They keep walking around...
Pine: We are walking in the same place aren't we?
Why Pine is the one who notice?
It seems that she is in Aqua's position (intelligent)
I feel that FPC members don't have a fixed 'position'...such as:
-Black manage the punch attack; White is kicking and throwing... Black is leader type, White is intelligent type; Luminous is support type
-Bloom/Bright deals with light(earth) attack; Egret/Windy deals with speed (heaven/sky) attack...
Bloom does not like Black who has strong leadership in the series..(I think)
- Dream: leader type
Rouge: attack type
Lemonade: support type
Mint: Protect/defense type
Aqua: intelligent type
Milky Rose: Power type
but FPC...sometimes Peach is leader, Berry is intelligence, Pine is attack type; another time Berry become attack type, Passion is leader, Pine is support type etc...
I don't know if this kind of arrangement for FPC..
They still can't find the exit...
That Sorewatase comes!!
Berry and Passion are trapped!!
Following by Peach and Pine !!
I like this arrangement, so that the pairing doesn't like on purpose.
Tart and Azukina...actually they do nothing in this ep...what we can see are the screens which show their close relationship.
The following part is the main part+climax of this ep:
Expectedly, both of them land successfully.
So where are they? It looks like rubbish area...
Berry and Passion:!!
Wester and Soular are very serious now!
Soular: This is the place for waste treatment, it is so-called garbage dump!
...it is actually garbage dump, isn't it?
Wester: We should settle our matter by a duel!
Firstly, *Wester vs Passion (*as they are going to die soon, I put Wester/Soular first)
I like this fight! These two are Power type, so they won't fight like Soular vs Berry.
This fight can commpare to Eas vs Peach (I think this is better than that)
Wester: Eas! This is your last chance!
Wester still want Setsuna to return Labyrinth as his partner...What a nice guy!
Passion, of course, her answer is the same: I am not Eas anymore!
Then they change topic:
Passion: You have eaten Donut when you're in Clover Town Street, haven't you?
Wester: Yes! that's delicious!
Passion: If the world is being controlled by Moebius, you can't eat what you like! You can't eat Donut anymore!
Wester: You don't need to worry about that! I remember how to make Donut, so I can eat whenever I like!
....Passion...are you trying to use Donut to persuade Wester betraying Labyrinth? Really want to make miracle using Donut? er...this is not the moment yet. Also, Wester is childish sometimes, but he is not dumb...he won't get convinced easily by Donut...BTW, when he know how to make Donut? (I want to see him making Donut) Honestly, this conversation make me laugh..
Berry: For the sake of Moebius...everyone in Labyrinth said this...
Soular: that's right...We live for Moebius, as a citizen of Labyrinth..
Berry: Everyone's happiness should be different...The world which people are saying the same thing..is weird! What is your happiness!?
Soular: of course..My happiness is serving Moebius...
Have a nice Soular close up.
Soular:We belong to Moebius..The one who don't understand happiness is you, Precure. What are you fighting for?
Soular: Oh yes, the people in the street always laugh..
(I think I should stop translating..)
Berry and Soular conversation is more meaningful than Wester & Passion. Their conversation is very close to the theme of this series--happiness.
Labyrinth's happiness is different from what we know about happiness.
Labyrinth people is happy when they serve Moebius...their happiness is the same.
Berry point out that people should not have the same happiness. That is the message Toei want to deliver in this series.
Moebius: Execution starts!
Suddenly, a black hole appears!!
All Labyrinth people know what it is. This is Delete Hole...
Soular recalls the order Moebius gave them, and he realise..
Soular: Moebius want to abandon us in the beginning...with Precure..
but Soular doesn't believe Moebius does that to him...
Passion: Berry, run!!
Delete hole is like black hole, it absorbs everything.
Passion is hindered by the old wires.
Oh no! a fan is coming towards her!!
Gentle reminder: there will be many Wester shots (only 4 actually)in the following.
I think of Coco when I see this..the expression like Coco (well, the art director is PC5 designer...)
Wester suddenly become so handsome...
Wester: Eas...I am clear now...
Wester: I look like rubbish to Moebius...hahaha
Passion: No, you're not, Wester!
Yes, you're not rubbish, Wester! You give us a lot of fun throughout the series! Without you, the series may be boring...
Passion: You are considerate to your partners...
I agree totally! Wester always want Eas back to be his partner instead of exploit her like Norza.
Wester: I am not so good...
Passion: You still call me Eas even I betray Labyrinth, you still think that I am your partner! I'm sorry, but thank you.
You are as nice as Bunbee~Wester~
Wester: When I eat Donut alone, I have a thought--I may be happier if I eat Donut with you all...
Great! you understand that! otherwise you will be like Mushiban...
and...Wester x Passion is born! (so my Wester x Inori~...)
Oh yes, I also have a thought--if Wester is the human version of Donut King, that will be great! Do you agree? (esp their voice actor is the same)
However, another waste breaks them apart!
Wester, together with that waste, are absorbed into that hole!
Passion (and us): Wester-----!
Let's say farewell to Wester....Wester, we will remember you always!
----THE END OF WESTER----
On the other hand, Soular still think of begging Moebius for saving his life.
Soular: Moebius-sama, I'm here!
Soular doesn't think that Moebius will treat him like this.
Soular: Moebius-sama, why---!?
His expression is like Shin Asuka in GSD ep 1...
According to Labyrinth rule, Moebius won't save/help anyone.
Before continuing Soular & Berry, let me synchronize this situation with Wedding Peach ep 16:
Pluie...the enemy who has the longest life in the series, he is being abandoned by Devila in this ep. Devila asks him to take Wedding Peach into the darkness whirl together, and Pluie does what she said in order to show his loyalty.
Why I compare Soular to Pluie? they have the similar personalities--high pride, very loyal to their boss...
If Moebius asks him to do this to Berry, he will do it too.
Of course WPeach (we have Cure Peach here, so I call her WPeach) doesn't want to go to that hole with Pluie...she manage to escape from him and....
Now I continue Soular & Berry scene with WP ep 16:
Fifteen years ago, Wedding Peach saved Pluie like this; 15 years after, Berry does the similar thing...
Both Pluie and Soular ask the same question: Why you save me? I'm your enemy!
Berry: Smiling is better than fighting, isn't it?
WPeach: I don't know, but it is tragical that you are absorbed into that whirl.
Berry: I said that my happiness is seeing everyone's smile. You are included in the group "Everyone"!
Touching indeed! It means "I want to see you smile, Soular."
WPeach: I can't stand how Devila abandons you. I can't!
How Soular and Pluie react when they hear this?
Soular: I always think my life style is right...so I deserve this result...
Soular seems to regret what he had done so far...
Pluie: Because of such feeling, Angel and Devil have to fight against each other...
Pluie has no regret...
He still want to pull WPeach into the whirl!
Until WPeach's tear come across him...he feel her "Love wave".
It seems that Pluie is touched for WPEach crying for him.
Although his feeling is like Soular, he said WPeach is too silly...
Soular: Everyone smile when they are saved, doesn't it?
To save Berry, he punches the waste where Berry is standing, in order to..
Get the same result as Pluie--release Berry's/WPeach's hand
For Pluie, he released her hand by force.
The last close up of Soular....
Both of them are "absorbed" into the dying holes.
Esp. this pose, they are really similar...
For WPeach case, Pluie returns the ring to her.
Farewell, Soular, you only appear few eps in the series, but we remember your intelligence (and cunning?)
Oh yes, when I read the intro of Wester and Soular, I feel that Wester and Soular are enemy side of Coco and Nuts. Wester always go out for journey like Coco; Soular get information from books like Nuts...but Wester is more dumb than Coco.
Due to Soular, Berry and Passion can escape from that rubbish dump....
Wester and Soular will always be in their hearts (in our hearts as well)
BTW, Wester and Soular are the first (becoming good)enemies that they could not alive till the end of the series.
Recall our betrayed enemies in Precure series":
PCMH- Hikaru (?can he be said as betray?): be Hikari's brother
PCSS- Michiru & Kaoru: being normal human
PC5/GG-Bunbee: alive and open Bunbee's company...
FPC-Eas: being Cure Passion
-Wester & Soular: died
I had not talked about Peach and Pine...um...where are they now...?
Anyway, we know that they are going to meet one of the strongest boss--Norza!
On Tart's side...
Tart and Azukina reach the Infinity control.
and they find Chiffon!!
--To be continued--
Jeffrey look child is watching Peach and Pine suffering, together with Tart and Azukina.
Why this child looks like Jeffrey?
Labyrinth people are going to celebrate "*National Doughnut Day"?
It is a special day in USA, details is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Do
I think Donut miracle is related to National Doughnut Day, don't you agree?
Title: The world is changed! Donut causes miracle!
This ep we are able to see HCPC:
Close up of Blossom and Marine...Marine looks distorted...Blossom is cute...
oh no..another pink character I like...
I have the tendency liking pink coloured hair characters-- e.g. Shiratori Nagisa, WPeach, Milfeulle, Lacus, Nozomi...and this one (but Blossom is not in pink hair when she is not Precure)
Exception of pink coloured hair characters are: Chibiusa, Hinagiku, Doremi (does she consider as pink character?)..
Their pose...compare to FPC, is better...
Some info about the staff:
The series director is 長峰達也, the person who is in charge of all Precure movies
The character designer...I think some of us realise this: the enemy design looks like Casshern SIN, because HCPC character designer is Casshern SIN character designer. He had drawn rough animation for PCSS and PC5 series before.. oh yes, his name is 馬越嘉彦. I think we will see better animations in this new series.
The end card...Tart and Azukina is so small, and Peach & Pine are not there...
There is a Extra--
I bought Cure Dream on Christmas Eve, the price is HKD$188, the cheapest price I get.
The cover-- two faces, 5 hands and a fleur attached
The following pictures are taken by mobile phone camera, so the picture quality may not be nice. (in addition, the background I had been blurred)
Dream can't really sit because of her skirt.
The great power of hope! Cure Dream!
Precure Dream Attack!
Same pose with Magenta BG(from the case)
Crystal Fleur! The light of Hope!
The day before I manage to find a machine for Precure toy. (PC5 weapon) It seems that PC5 is not very hit in HK, so far I only see Pinky catcher, Dream Collet, SHF FigureArt (Dream, Aqua & Lemonade), DreamLive (only one machine in Toy's R us) and the machine for PC5 weapon. I am lucky that I get Dream Torch.(a good start of the year?) There is a very small photo of Dream in the center. The photo can change to Nozomi when it turns. I will show it next time once I take the photo on it.
About this action figure, I am satified everything except the gloves and faces. I want to have a closed mouth Dream....for the gloves, the modeler draw it wrongly...
