PostSubject: Character Discussion - Yuri Tsukikage/Cure Moonlight   Sat Dec 07, 2013 4:37 am



Oh yea, she's here! The most hardcore awesome Magical Girl since the White Devil herself! Though unlike Nanoha there's so much more to Yuri's character. XD

I admit I didn't like her when I first saw her. In the first episode Moonlight came off as one of those perfect mystical waif-goddess/plot device characters. Then we meet her civilian self and she talks in riddles. I did not get her thing about understanding friendship around episode 10 or so. 

She's considered to be one of the more angsty characters in the Precure series, and for good reason, but unlike some angsty people we all know, there's more to her than just a tragic backstory, and she gives us plenty of reason to still like her.

Of the the most poignant things about Yuri's backstory is her selflessness and confidence. Her fairy partner, Cologne, implores her to seek out the future partners of Chypre and Coffret, but Moonlight declines, saying that as long as she's strong enough to handle the threat, no one else will have to suffer like she has.

Naturally it comes back to bite her, resulting in the loss of Cologne and her ability to transform. She spends much of the series broken as a result. But being as awesome as she is that doesn't stop her from being awesome once in a while, like jumping into a swarm of Snackies to save her mom.

It takes the others dragging her back into the saddle before the glorious return of Cure Moonlight happens, and it was awesome. 



I love that she's still capable enough to take down Snakies despite being essentially powerless. And unlike Itsuki, she's not a trained martial artist. She's a friggin scholar.

I love how this woman has the misfortune of being named "Yuri" in a franchise where girl love undertones are frequent.

She is a high school student. The rest of the Heartcatch cast is 14, and Yuri's 17. 

This poor woman's life is a complete whirlwind of tragedy and feels, pretty much the most out of any character in the Precure franchise.

To put it in perspective...

Yuri is the only reason I want to watch Heartcatch, but the annoying mascots and the painful fillers are stopping me.

@Ami: You could just skip ahead to her debut episode and read summaries of the other ones. That's what I did for Cure Muse.

I could just watch the Yuri episodes. Hmm that's a good idea, but I like to watching a whole series though.

Oh, and while we're at it, I'd like to say that Yuri is my favorite Precure (and 5th favorite magical girl overall), as well as the reason I decided to watch it, for all the reasons stated above?

It's been about five years coming, I've been eyeing it on Amazon for so long..



It took about a month to get here, because you know, Japan, but just the box alone is so gorgeous. I don't know if I even wanna open it tbh. I've always been kind of space conscious, so I feel like I don't have anywhere to display it properly despite my dresser and night table being largely vacant. They just don't seem right for it. A tall bookshelf or something would be better.

Either way, my life goal as a Precure fan is over. <3
