HappinessCharge Precure! Episode 11 Review -Home on the Range

This is one of the most anticipated Precure episodes ever, the transformation of Cure Honey!! and Namakelder really gets into rice!

So it is in this episode that Honey offers to tell the Precure about why she hid her secret. I wonder how she knew they were the Precure though…


Cure March greets us today; she wants everything to be a clear cut match from now on!

Megumi’s is very excited that her dearest Yuu-Yuu is a Precure and Hime asks why Honey. Yuuko replies it is because Honey is her favorite food of all. Poor Hime, that isn’t exactly what she meant…




Hime is (understandably) angry at Yuuko from hiding it from them and demands she tell them when she became a Precure but then Yuuko collapses due to hunger and they go back to the embassy for pancakes, who’s creation she compliments Ribbon on and adds honey to make them even more sweet.

Blue comes back and brings the curry spices that Yuuko asked for. Hime immediately exclaims her surprise at Yuuko knowing Blue. Blue explains that she became a Precure right before Megumi did, also fighting the Saiark. Hime then asks again why Yuuko hid the secret and Yuuko replies that she thought it would be delicious if she saved the Precure from a pinch. I don’t think Seji was impressed.



Yuuko cunningly decides to leave before Hime can grill her any longer but she tells the Cures to meet her at the Pikarigaoka station at 6am on Sunday (the next day) and she will tell them about Cure Honey’s secret. To be honest, there isn’t much more to reveal. Yuuko was Honey before Megumi, fought Saiark then revealed herself.

Deep Mirror divulges information to Queen Mirage about Cure Honey and says that her song heals hearts. Queen Mirage states that her broken heart wont be healed by her song. Here is a massive plot point. It seems that the theory that Queen Mirage was a Precure that fell in love and had her heart broken could indeed come true!! (My money is on Blue being whom she loved and the preview for episode 13 hints at this.)

The Cures + Seji get off at Pikari Mountain, following earlier instructions from Yuuko to do so. Megumi promotes the PreCards by changing into a mountain girl!

They get to the top and see many rice fields which Seji tells them is a terraced field. Megumi calls out for the Oomori household and for whatever reason is surprised when Yuu-Yuu tuns around =.=” I mean, Yuuko said to meet  here, the place is owned by Oomoris, Yuuko’s family has a bento shop which uses a lot of rice I mean come on! Why would Megumi at all be surprised to find her there…

Whilst Megumi and Yuuko get stuck in, Hime is clearly not used to hard labour like this. Also frogs scare her for some reason. And, it took a lot of practise but I managed to get this screenshot of Hime…the  thing with a little Hime in her mouth was funny at first but now it just looks really scary…


vlcsnap-2014-04-21-20h05m43s82 vlcsnap-2014-04-21-20h05m46s110 vlcsnap-2014-04-21-20h06m16s156

Ok, so she falls and Yuuko goes to help her, Hime momentarily overwhelmed by Yuuko’s kindness says she can get up herself…only to fall over again and have Yuuko save her. Upon discovering a scratch, Yuuko goes off to find medicine and Ribbon comments that she’s a really nice girl.




Of course, nothing in Precure is happy for long; Namakelder shows up and turns Yuuko’s grandparents into a Saiark.



(Choiarks how DARE you disrespect the rice by playing in it!!


vlcsnap-2014-04-21-20h29m12s87 vlcsnap-2014-04-21-21h05m43s237

The water makes it extremely hard for the Cures to fight and instead they just resort to randomly kicking and punching at places where the Choiarks aren’t even there sometimes…


vlcsnap-2014-04-21-21h05m55s97 vlcsnap-2014-04-21-21h05m59s140 vlcsnap-2014-04-21-21h06m05s202

And to add insult to injury the Cures are plucked and then planted like rice seeds… seems like the Saiark is much better at this than you Hime xD



This (understandably) gets Yuuko really mad, especially as Namakelder tried to sweep away her Honey candy (how rude)


vlcsnap-2014-04-21-21h20m36s101 vlcsnap-2014-04-21-21h20m52s110 vlcsnap-2014-04-21-21h21m36s42 vlcsnap-2014-04-21-21h21m51s189

“Bearing Earth’s Fruits, the light of life! Cure Honey!”


vlcsnap-2014-04-21-21h22m30s69 vlcsnap-2014-04-21-21h22m47s237 vlcsnap-2014-04-21-21h23m10s215 vlcsnap-2014-04-21-21h23m21s69

Whilst Honey’s song affects the Cures, Ribbon and the ever-adoring Choiarks, Namakelder is so lazy that he wont’t even listen to the song. And therefore it doesn’t affect him. (nice loophole eh?)


vlcsnap-2014-04-21-21h23m42s22 vlcsnap-2014-04-21-21h23m59s190

Cure Lovely sticks up for Honey and says she will fight with her. Hime is still angry but she loves her as her friend and so is willing to help…if she gets an explanation that is xD



“Happiness Injection, happiness charge! HappinessCharge Precure!”


vlcsnap-2014-04-21-21h24m47s160 vlcsnap-2014-04-21-21h24m59s19 vlcsnap-2014-04-21-21h25m02s50

Ribbon throws Honey some PreCards (when did they obtain those?? I feel it was in a previous episiode but am not sure) and she defeats the Choiarks with Popcorn Cheer.


vlcsnap-2014-04-21-21h25m39s171 vlcsnap-2014-04-21-21h25m59s112

She then goes on to defeat the Saiark with a massive clover meteor from the heavens. Quite fitting.


vlcsnap-2014-04-21-21h26m42s32 vlcsnap-2014-04-21-21h27m29s240

Yuuko afterwards explains that her power and secret is the rice, the people who work hard to grow it and the smiles of people who eat it. Also it seems she was so happy to the point of embarrassment  and therefore couldn’t tell Megumi and Hime she was a Precure. Hime doesn’t think this a valid reason but she understands and her anger vanishes.


vlcsnap-2014-04-21-21h27m58s18 vlcsnap-2014-04-21-21h28m41s196

Hime shows her feelings and let’s Yuuko know how happy she is to be her friend and they make up.


Interesting about how naturally shy Yuuko is!! I really wasn’t expecting it. The transformation is absolutely beautiful. I like Yuuko very much but Hime still is and will always be my favourite! I cannot wait for Fortune to join the team!

It seems that Mirage has given more info as to what went on, meaning that the Axia box legend is not 100% true. The theory is that Hime opened it but I think she gave the box to Mirage as a Cure who then opened it.


On another note, I really think Yuuko should sing this song!
