Can you believe it? We're coming up on 20 years of the Pretty Cure franchise dominating the magical girl world.
Since Futari wa Pretty Cure, each series has been a unique wonderful adventure. It can't have been simple to tackle subjects like the importance of imagination and diversity, fighting in the face of adversity, and other hard-hitting life lessons in such a fun way, yet the brand has become well-known for it over the course of its two-decade existence.
Even though each series has its own group of ardent fans, the yearly team-up films featuring that year's current squad plus a few teams from previous series are also hugely popular. One such movie, titled Pretty Cure All Stars F, is slated to be released on September 15, 2023, and will star 77 of the franchise's heroines. This new film will shatter the Guinness World Record for “Most Magical Warriors in an Anime Film” previously held by Hug! Pretty Cure Futari wa Pretty Cure: All Stars Memories, the film that celebrated the franchise’s 15th anniversary.
We've gathered some of the most incredible fan artwork showcasing characters from the franchise up through the most recent season, Soaring Sky! Pretty Cure, which debuted in early February of this year, to help you celebrate this momentous event!
