Operation Maximum Trolling:
1) Release HeartCatch 39 just after Smile 39 airs. See how many people get massively confused.
2) Then take people off guard by doing it again with HC40 after Smile 40. See how many people weren’t expecting it to happen again.
3) Reveal that I only had pretimes and raws from back in the day for those two episodes, so don’t expect anymore after this unless someone wants to do a lot of thankless work for me. :V
That said, doing these two eps has kind of done a lot to remind me how much I do love the franchise, despite Smile being… Smile. I actually hadn’t watched them before, having basically stopped watching the show when all the ~fansub drama~ occured that made us drop it originally, basically just watching the final ep and that’s it after that. But HC39 is really the perfect filler ep, and this is the perfect plot ep. The same scene sent chills down my spine each one of the four times I saw it in the process of working on this episode, and god damn it reminds me just how good Precure can be when it tries.
