  • Episodes: 201
  • Aired: April 2006 - March 2010

Synopsis

Life isn't easy in feudal Japan... especially since the aliens landed and conquered everything! Oh sure, the new health care is great, but the public ban on the use of swords has left a lot of defeated samurai with a difficult decision to make concerning their future career paths! This is especially true if, as in the case of Gintoki Sakata, they're not particularly inclined towards holding a day job, which is why Gintoki's opted for the freelance route, taking any job that's offered to him as long as the financial remuneration sounds right. Unfortunately, in a brave new world filled with stray bug-eyed monsters, upwardly mobile Yakuza and overly ambitious E.T. entrepreneurs, those jobs usually don't pay as well as they should for the pain, suffering and indignities endured!

Endowed with new and startling powers, Nagisa and Honoka become Cure Black and Cure White, magical defenders of the light—together, they are Pretty Cure.

Reactions Around the Web

Fairy Tail would be easy to make because there are lots of characters, and alliances are clearly divided by guilds.
If this was asked a long time ago, it would've been Inuyasha for sure
I also wanted a PreCure Musou, but I didn't expect it to be first place
