An e-mail from Zyl reminded me about the lesbian danger in Precure. I was rather nonchalant about it, since Evirus did not post anything, and he is sensitive like a radio. However, based on one episode, there’s a significant, possibly meaningful asymmetry built into the character set of Precure: Nagisa is popular with girls, Honoka is popular with boys. It would not surprise me at all if one of the three unread letters that Nagisa discarded before being decked by her “phone” in fact came from Honoka (as Naruko Hanaharu was intimating). For now I continue to think that it is nothing but fan shipping, a-la Aria, but we shall see.
