Do you feel any excitement or tension in this ep? I had been watched Precure for around 5 years...this is the first time I watch ep 45+ without any excitement...the main reason is fighting scene. Do Precure and Minor group fight? I mean even FPC, I still can see the cadres working, preventing Precure to reach the boss...ep 46 Labyrinth duo had done a good job for fighting against Precure fair and square, so does HCPC. It is odd here that Falsetto never do anything to the fight! He is not like Goyan who is hidden boss. In this ep, Beat suddenly persuades Falsetto….I want to say why you didn’t do the same thing in ep 43? So that Mephisto won’t be unconscious!
Secondly, Precure only cast rondos and CT +some kicks...Muse and Beat do slightly more punches and barrier. Also, I wonder if passionate harmony is the most powerful attack. The fight so far shows me that when their weapons can't work, they usually use Passionato Harmony as the secret attack...it become quadruple this time..it is fine but where is super quartet ? and how about arpeggio and piacere? They can upgrade to real super quartet instead of passionato harmony. I like passionato harmony, but according to the beginning of the series, passionate harmony is not supposed to be the strongest attack. If so, why we need those weapons’ attack? (only for toy sale?) Melody and Rhythm can upgrade their weapon up to Super quartet state, why the other two can’t upgrade to the same level as Berither? If you notice, you can find the Berither attacks had been lower down their levels to match Beat and Muse. The strongest attack for Beat is rondo (so-called Heartful Beat Lock) and Muse is those bubbles attack, their level is only reached Precure Musical Rondo. Apparently, Melody and Rhythm are way stronger than Beat and Muse, of course Toei knew it, otherwise they don’t hide Arpeggio attack and above from ep 21 onwards.
Aphrodite is way too weak as a queen...Otokichi is still powerful (at least more useful than the Aphrodite). Well, I don't expect Aphrodite to help Precure much, but don't just sit there and watch. It is weird that she is not as worried as Ako when Otokichi is going to be seal.
Noise finally tells us the whole story of his revenge plan (Please see Hibiki story).
It looks like a complete story, however, there are many plot holes:
-Noise doesn’t mention anything for Siren. (only a picture of her with Minor trio in his memory)
-The singing queen setup had been disappeared
-According to Aphrodite, CT is stored in the castle until one day, a devil body steals it, not her father takes it for fighting against Noise.
- both Noise and CT are injured and thrown away, how he know the location of CT?
- how Mephisto know that CT was sealed in the forest? and why he went there alone?
- the most unreasonable thing is that Noise can control other people even he was sealed! He is not supposed to have any power in sealed condition! Why Otokichi left brainwashing power for Noise?
My thought is…Toei…you still want to change the storyline at the end of the series…
Although there is no tension in this ep, there are some good bits like:
1. Ako/Muse is at rage to Noise for destroying her homeland. She rushes and fight against Noise alone.
2. Noise avenges Otokichi and CT by sealing them.
3. Aphrodite protects the people by assembling them to the castle.
4. Otokichi holds Muse’s hand and pushes her away.
5. CT saves Precure
The only scene give me tension is the preview of =)PC. Well, it really has Pc5 cover, but the action is epic. Happy, Peace and Beauty are awesome. Happy is awesome for the action of “twinkle twinkle little star”, but her appearance still looks like Dream (esp ep 1 scene, like Nozomi meets Coco). Peace and Beauty…at least…they don’t have any shadow of Lemonade and Aqua (because they are not so “fierce”)…and their pose are nice. Sunny and March…sorry…I still can see Rouge and Mint shadow on them….Nevertheless, at least, the number of Precure and the candidates are fixed. They probably appear in the first 5 eps since they show us 5 members in the beginning, like PC5.
Overall, for this ep, it is good to watch the dual between Otokichi+CT and Noise, Muse is fine, but others still look awkward.
The only reason for reopening this section is only for Noise revenge plan:
-Otokichi and CT fought against and defeated him. Otokichi is the one who seal him.
-CT is lost before Otokichi sealed him.
-Noise took CT away and sealed it in the Devil Tune Forest
-Mephisto went to the forest for taking CT back, but being brainwashed by Noise
-Mephisto brainwashed Minor trio and built the country Minor Land.

We can see many awesome action scenes and “super development” from him. The example is HCPC.

I only know he is Urara’s fan XD. His storyboard is cinematic, the examples are Urara eps.
Character Design and Main air director: Kawamura Toshie
Pc5 character design (that’s why =)PC looks like Pc5). We can see beautiful drawings in this series (*sparkle*)

About her: Cure Rhythm’s cast is the person she respects very much. She always work with Mizuki Nana in Mizuki Nana radio (one of the host)

Cure Beauty/Aoki Reika: Nishimura Chinami
Example cast: Dark Dream, Ojamaru (2nd cast)
About her: She is one of my favourite cast (who cares..). I know her since her first debut-Shiratori Nagisa, so I know that she sings very well. Here is her song in Chou Kuseni Narisou:
Ep 11 part 3, double Nagisa, another Nagisa is Dark Precure.
She is the oldest seiyuu among all Smile Precure. Of course, when she cast Reika, she won’t be like Nagisa.

We know op singer, but we don’t know much for ed singer. She had sung op for Sora no Odoshi Mono (H anime). You can listen to that op if you want to know more about her voice.

Recap from last ep:
Otokichi: This is Noise true form!!
Noise: I finally get rid of Angry Bird!
SPC: We won't forgive you!
They successfully create new Modules...
and a new series: Macross Suite!
Aphrodite: my dear...
have you asked any doctor for Mephisto?
Breaking News! Noise invades Major Land!
Parrot: All Major people are gathered!
but my concern is...where is the soldiers for fighting against Noise?
Oh! Noise is here!
Aphrodite: Precure Happiness Hurricane!
This is a AT Field for defense from Noise attack!
On the other hand, Parrot informs Precure about the invasion.
Is it necessary? SPC is flying to there too (with Macross Suite)
Aphrodite, Happiness Hurricane is not used for barrier...
by the way, why don't you use this attack earlier during ep 36-37?
Aphrodite can't be too strong, otherwise SPC has no reason to be here.
I really don't know Hummy can cast piano too....she didn't do much things so far...
Noise: Precure is not important, the most important is CT.
What a...Even the big boss ignores Precure....poor thing...this season's Precure....
CT: This is our story!
but there is nothing to do with Precure....
Once upon the time, Noise was absorbing all the sound in Major land...
A brave warrior appears with CT in front of Noise!
In the battle, both Noise and CT were injured.
so...it is supposed to be the battle between Noise and CT? not Otokichi?
When Noise was injured, Otokichi quickly sealed him!
but CT was caught and sealed by Noise....(how?)
Noise was injured and sealed...but he told us he still had the power to control others (again...how? Even Saga(in Seiya) want to control others, he can't control people far away...)
Noise brainwashed Mephisto by that Golem (who is defeated by Precure...!)
and built Minor Land....
Do you believe this story is original setting? I don't believe, strongly...
Muse is very angry at Noise with multiple punches! It is a good scene, but after this...
I can't feel the rage from Beat....she looks like playing with Noise...
She even can persuade Falsetto at the same time!
Beat: Falsetto, you are exploited by Noise!!
I thought it is supposed for Minor duo to persuade?
Falsetto: ? (I thought originally I am one of the main villains of the series...)
How can he understand? He is not abandoned by Noise yet. (and Noise is not going to abandon him)
Precure stand up and cast Rondos to Noise. Please, he is the last boss, this attack won't take effect on him....Noise tries to counterattack, but CT defends for SPC (very good, this cheat code...)
CT: Don't worry, don't you forget, Precure. We still have a secret weapon.
Suddenly, a beam goes through Noise body!!
Yes! Macross Suite!
Noise: This is not robot anime....Otokichi.....
CT: Let you see our scientific power! CT---crusher---!
Otokichi: Noise! Take this!
Otokichi: Macross Cannon! Shoot!
Noise: ah------! Precure....Otokichi...CT...you are cunning.....!!
How can a last boss be defeated in this ep! Noise uses his full power to defend CT+Macross Cannon!
Otokichi: He is not Noise in the past!
Of course, otherwise, why we need Precure?
Noise: Noise Cannon!!
Ah...our Macross Suite.....
Captain Otokichi is caught!!
Otokichi: The world is counted on you.
Otokichi becomes the same state as Noise in the past! (also becomes like PC5 in 5GG ep 46.)
CT Don't give up! SPC!
Noise chooses to catch CT more than SPC.....our heroine seems not valuable....
Beat finally moves! Beat Sonic!
Beat: Don't touch our cheat code!!
If Otokichi is still here....are you fighting like this, Precure?
Don't give out the clef so easily!! You just get it last ep!
What!? Noise will be defeated by PH!? How weak!
Falsetto: I won't let it happen!!
It seems Falsetto is the last boss....
Noise is down! but he still has seven sense to....
collect SPC sculpture!!
CT: I won't let this happen!!
She takes the last grasp to save SPC....
Finally, Noise completes his revenge!! CT is sealed!
but Noise is also KO. They have to retreat.
Muse: Macross Suite is destroyed...
Beat: our cheat code CT is sealed....
Rhythm: What should we do...?
Melody:.....let's go to next ep!
I know you all had watched =)Pc trailer. Just wanna show once more:
SPC's junior-Smile Precure are ready to take over SPC.
SPC is in pinch!
They quickly deal with Noise before the handover!
Why Noise can be human form? Probably he is combined with Falsetto...
Title: Zugon! Precure's last battle!
I thought this ep is also part of the last battle....
End card: Let's go! Suite and Smile Precure! (smile Precure even "invades" end card....I thought there is still 3 eps left..?)
