For some ‘Glitter Force Doki Doki’ is actually the worst version of the ‘Pretty Cure’ Franchise, while for others, it is actually a breath of fresh air from the overall repetitive formula of every version of the anime in the franchise. This version of it actually proves that despite being a well-established franchise, it is often necessary to adapt with respect to the changing targeted audience.
While most other series relied more on fantasy elements, this one brings in more relatable ideas such as the selfishness of the characters. Pretty much every episode focuses on the individual selfish desires of each of the characters. Apart from that, it also gives some advice to the children of today about various topics such as loneliness, depression, and abundance of information.
‘Glitter Force Doki Doki’ should not be watched as it was made for someone born in the 90s because clearly, it has been created for an audience that belongs to the same age group but a whole different generation. In fact, if you’re starting off the ‘Pretty Cure’ series at this point of time, my advice would be to start off with this version and not the ones that come before it in the franchise.
Overall, ‘Glitter Force Doki Doki’ is able to present itself as anime that has some great characters, incredible artwork and also has effective use of music. It is one of those few rare long-running series that have actually managed to move on ahead by adapting to the times instead of not being able to risk change. Definitely, a must watch for anyone who has recently entered the world of anime.
Glitter Force Doki Doki Season 3 Release Date: When will it premiere?
‘Glitter Force Doki Doki’ season 1 premiered on February 3, 2013 and ended on January 26, 2013. During this span, the anime released a total of 49 episodes. Apart from the main Season, the series has had several alternate settings, side stories, and even spin-offs. Being an original anime, whose story does not rely on a manga or a light novel series, the scope for the further expansion of the series is endless. Most of these different versions of the anime have done fairly well and if you consider all the alternate settings that the creators have come up with, you’ll realize that they are still creating a lot of new content. So clearly, the whole franchise is still running and is doing fairly well.
Now, these “alternate settings” have similar stories and are, in a way, related to the main story of Season 1. But even then, these cannot be considered to be direct adaptations or sequels. So this means that a proper Season 2 of the show is yet to be released. Speaking of which, it seems like the creators of the anime are busy focusing more on other alternate versions of the anime. So a direct season 2 seems very less likely. Even then, if there’s any news regarding the creators getting back to its new season, we’ll make sure that we update ‘Glitter Force Doki Doki’ season 2 release date right here. Till then, you can always catch up with all the different adaptations of the anime.
[Note: The anime has been broken into two seasons and released on Netflix. So, some readers might refer ‘Glitter Force Doki Doki’ season 2 to as ‘Glitter Force Doki Doki’ season 3]
