I haven't seen the whole series, just episodes 17-20 from a UFA DVD, "German" title "Pretty Cure", from the bargain bin (2 being a good deal, I think). But watching all four of them in a row gives quite some impression already, especially the ritual executed once per episode ("Cure White!"- "Cure Black!"- "White thunder!"- "Black thunder!"- "Marble beam!") Two schoolgirl with the typical maximal eyes and minimal noses go through the troubles of normal life, as well as saving the earth from eery foes. A nice addition are Mipple and Mepple, kind of live Tamagotchis living each in one cell-phone, and having their tempers sometimes.
Of the episodes, I liked 17 (pupils help harvesting on a farm) best. Maybe I'll get a better feeling for the others on repeat viewing. In any case, with Japanese soundtrack this is a decent addition to an anime fan's collection.. :)
