YTV’s website has updated with a few new shows beginning this Spring and that includes the premiere of the previously announced anime, Pretty Cure. As you may recall, Pretty Cure is coming to Canadian television dubbed due to a deal directly between YTV and Toei Animation, definitely an interesting surprise move by them when we first heard about it in December.
YTV’s synopsis of the show (with lead character dub names):
“Natalie and Hannah are suddenly thrown together as the legendary warriors known as “Pretty Cure”. They’re each entrusted with a Card Commune, a device that looks like a cell phone, and by sliding their Pretty Cure Cards through them they are able to transform. As Cure Black and Cure White, they must fight against the evil monsters of the Dark Zone who are after the magical gems called “Prism Stones”. It’s up to these ordinary girls with extraordinary powers to collect all seven Prism Stones and restore the Garden of Light before the darkness devours everything.”
Outfits may be silly in the way only animes can be, but with some pretty slick looking animation and magical girls who literally kick their enemies’ butts, I’ll certainly be catching a rerun of the first episode (would watch the premiere but I’ll be busy that weekend!).
