About Pretty Cure

Also known as PreCure in Japan, it is a franchise consisting of several Japanese magical girl animes usually geared toward young girls. The series has been around for nearly 20 years now with the original series Futari wa Pretty Cure debuting in 2004. The franchise has been adapted into several types of media from films, anime, games, manga series, live-action dramas, and of course toys.

The original ‘Yes! Precure 5’ and its 2008 sequel ‘Yes! Precure 5 GoGo!’ first aired as the fourth and fifth series of the franchise. Both were notable for establishing the characters as a team instead of the precedented setup of having the heroes be a duo. The series moving forward would continue to carry the magical girl themes for its sequel anime, opting for a team of three or more characters as part of the teams.
