Glitter Force Doki Doki launches August 18th on Netflix


Netflix and Toei Animation are bringing Glitter Force Doki Doki to the streaming giant next week. The series, which is an adaptation of 2013-2014’s Doki! Doki! Pretty Cure, follows up the Netflix original Glitter Force, itself an adaptation of 2012-2013’s Smile PreCure! series. The magical girl series is set to drop its latest batch of episodes on the 18th. You can already queue up the series here.

Four girls summon their inner superheroes to defend Earth and the magical kingdom of Splendorius from King Mercenare and his minions.

The English version of the show stars Stephanie Sheh, Melissa Fahn, Cassandra Lee Morris and Debi Derryberry, with Erica Mendez and Tara Sands as the cute assistants, Davi and Kippie, respectively. Glitter Force Doki Doki was directed by Todd Haberkorn.

The Pretty Cure franchise debuted in Japan back in 2004 and has been running with a new series every year since. In 2006, 4Kids Entertainment announced they had licensed the series, though nothing ever came from that partnership. Toei Animation’s US division later partnered up with Ocean Productions to create an English dub of the first series in 2009. It aired on YTV in Canada, Pop Girl in the United Kingdom and a few select other markets. In 2014, Saban Brands acquired the rights to one of the spinoffs and adapted that into the first Glitter Force.

Saban’s Glitter Force has received a mixed reaction from fans of the original Japanese version. While many are happy the series is receiving a wide official English release, many are disappointed by the alterations made to the show. Scripts are rewritten, characters and places are renamed, the music is replaced, episodes are skipped as well as edited. There’s been some reason to believe Saban has dropped the franchise. Earlier this year, the trademark for Glitter Force was transferred to Toei Animation, but no official word has been said. Any changes in adaptation style aren’t expected for the first batch of episodes as they were produced under Saban.
