Anime fans of the Precure franchise have something exciting to look forward to, as two beloved series are getting sequels aimed at grown-up audiences. Toei Animation announced that “Yes! Precure 5” and “Maho Girls Precure!” will be getting new anime series that will cater to adult viewers.
The first series, titled “Kibō no Chikara
Otona Precure 23,” is set to premiere in October of this year. It will follow the adventures of the former Precure team, who are now grown-ups facing new challenges in life. The series promises to have a more mature tone and tackle themes that resonate with adult viewers.
On the other hand, the sequel for “Maho Girls Precure!” will be released in 2024, according to the announcement. The original series aired from 2016 to 2017 and followed a group of girls who train to become witch-like magical girls. The sequel will also be aimed at grown-up audiences and is expected to bring back familiar characters while exploring new storylines.
It’s worth noting that these sequels are not the first time that the Precure franchise has targeted adult viewers. In 2018, “Hugtto! Precure” featured an episode that tackled the sensitive topic of single motherhood, which received praise for its mature approach. Moreover, “Star Twinkle Precure” in 2019 explored themes of self-love and acceptance, resonating with viewers of all ages.
The Precure franchise has been around for over 18 years, with numerous anime series, movies, and merchandise. Its popularity continues to grow not only in Japan but also worldwide, with fans of all ages enjoying the colorful and heartwarming stories of young girls becoming superheroes.
The announcement of these sequels proves that the Precure franchise is not slowing down anytime soon and is continuing to evolve and cater to different audiences.
