Little Girl Anime Power Rankings Season 2 – Week 43

If you happen to be a US resident, then Happy Fourth of July. And even if you’re not, Happy Fourth of July. There’s probably better things you could be doing than reading this post, and I appreciate that you took some of your free time to spend it in this neck of the internet woods.

Alright, who forgot to pay the art team again?

I feel like I should be hired to draw quality panels like these. I’d be really good at it.

1) Aikatsu Stars! – 335 Points
2) Mahou Tsukai Precure! – 280 Points
3) PriPara – 238 Points

Fairilu is really trying to sneak into third place, and I’m too lazy to calculate if it’s even possible at this point.

A Word From the Big Man
This week is a not so subtle mix of experimentation, aspirations, bad jokes, great storytelling, movie making, adorable smiles, and disaster.

Idols are like onions.

In this week’s Stars, you’re forced to watch a movie where the entire cast acts goofy and bastardizes a handful of classic fairy tales. In other words, Stars made you watch a horrible, watered down version of Shrek…the greatest Disney film of all time.

Look at me! I’m adorable!

Precure hasn’t fallen out of it’s high just yet. There’s a lot of new developments and elements they had to introduce this week, and it really just made it feel like a new show with familiar faces. Honestly, I think MahoPri staff could have made something even more spectacular with more time. But I think a lot of decisions they’re forced into making (and why the pacing feels a little fast at times) is just based on the fact that they only have a year to do everything they want to do. But it does work in the favor of having a very sparse amount of dull episodes, and that’s something that’s incredibly rare for Precure series as of recent. It honestly feels a lot like the fourth season of Aikatsu. A lot of really well thought out writing forced into a very small amount of space.

Well, this is awkward.

In this week’s PriPara, you’re forced to watch a movie where the entire cast acts goofy and take on one another’s personalities. In other words, PriPara made you watch a horrible, watered down version of The Hot Chick…the greatest Disney film of all time.

If you turn this into an idol anime, then I’ll break you in half.

Fairilu this week is honestly just that episode we’ve been waiting for (or maybe some people were dreading it). Either way, it’s something that has been foreshadowed a lot, and it was just kind of fun to see it finally unfold. Fairilu has introduced a ton of potential directions as of recent, and it’s pretty darn healthy for it from a writing standpoint. I just hope the idol thing doesn’t become too big of a plot point. It’s fine if Lip has a future career that she wants to pursue, but I don’t want the young ones forced to watch another pure idol anime. I’m about 99.9% sure the staff has no intentions of doing that though. They have a ton of fun things that make Fairilu what it is, and I don’t see them throwing that all away just to ensure easy plot direction.

Wrap-Up
Before anybody says it, yes, I am aware that Shrek is by DreamWorks and not in anyway related to Disney. But if you couldn’t tell I was fucking with you after PriPara or just didn’t read the PriPara section…I was fucking with you. Also, I know PriPara wasn’t anywhere near a “body swap” situation, but, to be frank, that would have been a hundred times better episode to watch. Oh, whoops! I just gave them a free episode idea.
