Sailor Suit Pretty Cure (セーラー戦士プリキュア Sērā Senshi Purikyua, literally translated as: Sailor Warriors Pretty Cure. In the English dub, the name was going to be changed to Sailor Suited Pretty Cure, but it was decided that the name will stay the same) is the first fanseries made by Cure Wonder. It is about a group of magical girls having the powers to transform into Pretty Cure and a magical boy having the power to transform into a Pretty Cure ally. Their outfits are their own school uniforms with an exception. Sailor Suit Pretty Cure is unique in the the sense that it has plenty of jokes, gags, and pop culture references to another magical girl anime Sailor Moon as well as referring to Yes! Pretty Cure 5!, Yes! Pretty Cure 5! GoGo!, and Fresh Pretty Cure. The anime will also reference Lucky Star, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Oreimo, and Stardust Witch Meruru. It will replace Doki Doki Pretty Cure in the timeslot. The motif is friendship and sailor suits--in particular, the sailor uniform that schoolgirls wear. In the English dub, it is the third Pretty Cure series, after the original Pretty Cure and Mirage Bloom Pretty Cure. There is also another English dub by Saban Entertainment called "Sailor Force".
(The link to the list of episodes is here.)
The Moonlight Kingdom has been attacked by the Dark Eclipse Kingdom. The evil forces murdered the Moonlight Princess and the other princesses as well as the prince. The Queen, Queen Artemis, decides to reincarnate the princesses and the prince but the reincarnation process causes them to have no memories of their past lives except for her daughter and the prince who have a dim memory of each others' identities. They were sent to live on Earth to fight evil as the Sailor Suit Pretty Cure. Queen Artemis also sent two talking cat-like mascots named Twilight--the female mascot--and Dusk--the male mascot--to find and awaken the PreCure Senshi.

Bunny Gekkono is 14 years old and is the leader of the Pretty Cure Senshi group as she calls it because she found the name Sailor Suit Pretty Cure to be too long. Bunny Gekkono is a peppy, energetic, and lively girl who is a student at Clover Academy. She is also very cute and a sweetheart, but she can be clumsy, immature at times, a crybaby, and a bit of a ditz. Bunny has a telepathic connection with Kokennin Hatsuno. She calls him Kokokeku-chan and he calls her Bunny-chi which she thinks that the nickname is cute. She is not a "dumb blonde", she's just lazy; she will work hard if she has a motivation to go by. Bunny is a little boy-crazy and a huge flirt around handsome boys. Because of this, she is popular among her male classmates. Her male classmates call her Gekkopi--which causes some people to think that she is an idol--and her friends call her Bunny-chan. Bunny is fond of food; her favorite foods are carrots, omelet rice with ketchup, and chocolate cake.

Such students call her "Tensai-san" (Miss Tensai). She reads textbooks and books that are called "geeky" or "nerdy" to some people at school and on the bus. But, at home, she secretly reads light novels and romance novels. Tensaimi keeps this a secret from others except her family because she feels that people would make fun of her. Some kids tease her by calling her "The Nerdy Beauty" or "Geek Girl", but she ignores them. She loves pop culture references. She doesn't like fighting and stays out fights, but she will defend herself and her friends if needed to. Tensaimi can appear arrogant, cold, and snobbish due to her antisocial personality and her preferring to read books and study rather than socialize.

But she has a kind heart on the inside. She is respected and feared due to her tenacity to fight. She was from Osaka, so she has a Kansai dialect but she speaks without the dialect so people could understand what she is saying though she uses the Kansai honorific -han for people she respects; she slips into the Kansai dialect when she gets excited or angry which is a running gag. When she was in elementary school in Osaka, she was with her babysitter who was named Aisuruto Itoshi but called her Onee-chan or Aisu-han. Itsuki's parents went to the movie theater to watch the movie Airplane but then, jokingly stated by Itsuki herself, ironically, a chemical toilet fell out of an airplane that was planning to safely dispose of it crashed through the theater roof, crushed her father, killing him, and her mother died from breathing in the toxic fumes. In reality, her parents died from a plane crash while they were watching the movie Airplane there. Itsuki was saddened by this news and she was going to be put in an orphange, but her babysitter decided to raise her and Aisuruto became a sister and mother figure to the young Itsuki. This caused her to have a fear of airplanes. When she attended Kansai Middle School, she joined a sukeban girl gang and eventually became the gang's leader. She kept this a secret from her old babysitter though. She was escorted out of her old school for fighting; since she did it in self-defense, she didn't get in trouble. Itsuki attends Clover Academy now, wearing her old school uniform. She is afraid of fighting because she sees herself as a ticking time bomb, and is, but she will defend herself and others if needed. Itsuki lives off of her rich parents' inheritance she brought with her. She is willing to do part-time jobs, odd jobs, and volunteer work.

Dark Eclipse Kingdom
Empress Kurai Tamashi (皇后暗い魂 Kōgō Kurai Tamashī)
Voiced by: Keiko Han
The evil ruler of the Dark Eclipse Kingdom. Empress Kurai Tamashi never had children. Because of this, she took an Earth child named Sakkarinno Suppai just so she can make the child evil like her. When she first became empress, she already had a name for the Nameless Kingdom--Dark Eclipse Kingdom. She prefers to be called Empress Tamashi or Your Resplendency. Tamashi is very beautiful; she was also called "The Deadly Beauty" because of this. She is a ruthless, cold-hearted, and merciless person. The empress wants her orders to be completed succesfully if not, she will kill who ever failed her and she lets her adopted daughter kill who ever failed her too, sometimes. Tamashi is also snooty and a snob, she thinks she is superior to everyone else and the Empress is a very strict ruler. Empress Tamashi thinks she deserves the best of everything and should be the talk of her kingdom. When she heard her subjects talk about Artemis' daughter and her friends, she was furious. So, she sent her troops to attack the Moonlight Kingdom to specifically assassinate the princesses and the prince. Empress Kurai Tamashi wants to take over Earth, the Moonlight Kingdom, and to get rid of the PreCure because she believes that she deserves a bigger and better kingdom than Artemis. She is also Kuro Tamashi's sister.
Duchess Zokubutsu (公爵夫人俗物 Kōshaku Fujin Zokubutsu) AKA Zo-chan
Voiced by: Hiromi Konno
The adopted daughter and heir of Empress Kurai Tamashi. She was formerly known as Sakkarinno Suppai, a rich and cute yet mentally and emotionally unstable Earth girl. No one wanted to be around her anymore and all but Itsuki gave up on helping her, so Tamashi took the girl and made her evil. She is a snob like her adopted mother. Zokubutsu seems so sweet and cute, but this is all an act; she's actually a mean-spirited and insane duchess. Zo-chan's rages are frightening and she uses General Night as a punching bag for her rages. The Duchess is sadistic and sometimes her adopted mother lets her kill anyone who failed to do their orders. She loves her adopted mother so much and Tamashi calls her Zo-chan. Zo-chan is the talk of the Dark Eclipse Kingdom. The empress takes the girl all over the Dark Eclipse Kingdom and gives her the best of everything, she is spoiled due to this. She hates Earth, but wants to rule Earth because now everyone will care about her and pay attention to her. She still has a soft spot for Itsuki and often has difficulties fighting Cure Timber. Duchess Zokubutsu wants to destroy the Moonlight Kingdom and the PreCure, but the PreCure could possibly cure her and restore her back to normal. In fact, the Pretty Cure restored her back into Sakkarinno Suppai.
General Night (全般ナイト Zenpan Naito)/Night (ナイト Naito)
Voiced by: Minoru Shiraishi
The first of Empress Kurai Tamashi's generals that appear and he is General Midnight's "little brother"; it is revealed that he does not have a sister, but a brother named Dusk. As a general, he makes mutant monsters called Form-Changers. Any Form-Changer he sends out is a human disguise. He is the weakest of the four generals so he gets pushed around by the other three generals a lot and gets lots of verbal and physical abuse from the Empress. General Night is intimdating, but he can be reckless and easily angered. Night gets teased by the Duchess and she calls him a weakling while teasing him. He often unintentionally annoys Tamashi by giving her excessive praise. He is often a punching bag for Zo-chan's rages. General Night was going to die (no big surprise, for he is weak in Zo-chan and Tamashi's eyes) after reporting that he failed 10 times and confessing his love for Cure River. However, the Cures saved him and transforms into his original cat-like creature form like Twilight and Dusk are.
General Midnight (一般ミッドナイト Ippan Middonaito)
Voiced by: Reiko Kiuchi
The second of Empress Kurai Tamashi's generals that appear and the only female general at her disposal. She is General Night's older sister, but it is later revealed that they are not related at all. Because she is the only female, the other male generals--except for General Night--flirt with her. General Midnight either ignores them, flirts a little back, or just give a smile and a wink. She works hard and is one of the stronger generals. When sending out a Form-Changer, she finds a person whose energy it about to reach its peak, she charges it and the energy reaches its peak, then a Form-Changer comes out of someone's body and leaves the victim unconscious. Midnight has a dark, sadistic sense of humor. For example, she always laughs when she sees the Duchess in a rage beating up her fellow teammate and "brother" General Night. She is one of Tamashi's favorite generals. General Midnight was the second general to die (a big surprise, for she is favored by Zo-chan and Tamashi) after reporting that she failed 9 times.
General Dark (一般ダーク Ippan Dāku)
Voiced by: Daisuke Sakaguchi
The third of Empress Kurai Tamashi's generals that appear. He often flirts with General Midnight. He is the second strongest general and does his training on a weekly basis. When sending out a Form-Changer, he looks into the heart of a person who is thinking selfish or otherwise negative thoughts, steals their soul, and turns it into a Form-Changer. He hates happy, beautiful music. Dark is scared of the Empress and the Duchess, especially the Duchess because of her frightening rages. He is Tamashi's second favorite general, but gets along with Zo-chan only half of the time. Dark was a samurai before being a general and he ends his sentences with "~de gozaru". General Dark was the third general to die when he was defeated by Cure Moonbeam's guitar making beautiful music.
General Shadow (一般シャドウ Ippan Shadō)
Voiced by: Hikaru Midorikawa
The fourth of Empress Kurai Tamashi's generals that appear. He sometimes flirts with General Midnight. He is the strongest general and trains everyday. He used to be a soldier before being a general, so he's a war veteran. He turns people into Form-Changers. Shadow respects Tamashi and Zo-chan. He is Tamashi's favorite general and Zo-chan likes him very much. He is very intimidiating and grins when people fear him. Shadow is cold and calculating, he is also very smart. General Shadow was the last general to die when he and Empress Tamashi was defeated by the Sailor Suit Pretty Cure.
Assassin Nin (アサシンニン Asashin Nin) AKA Nin-kun (ニンくん)
Voiced by: Daisuke Sakaguchi
Empress Tamashi's assassin who is good at sword-fighting and close combat. He is especially talented at doing assassinations. Nin was a ninja in order to support his family before working with the Empress. Nin is not his actual name; it's just a nickname, but he forgot his real name. Tamashi named him Nin, short for ninja because his real name was too long to pronounce. Both the Empress and her adopted daughter call him Nin-kun. He doesn't talk much and is stoic, but he enjoys a little chat with his enemies sometimes before killing them. Nin still wears his ninja clothes. Assassin Nin takes his job seriously and is loyal to Empress Tamashi and Duchess Zokubutsu. The reason why he chose to work for the Empress was because he was forced to work for her, due to being poor as he came from a poor family, and he felt obligated to work for her so he never left even though it would have been right to leave. Every life he has been asked to kill crushes him because he always feels regret for the lives he has killed. He is an anti-villain, instead of a villian. Nin has a crush on Itsuki Oak and tries not to hurt her. He tests the strength of the Pretty Cure rather than trying to defeating them.
Mysterious Robot Girl (謎のロボット少女 Nazo no robotto shōjo)
Voiced by: Natsuko Kuwatani (brief lines)

Jaakunakyoku Majono is a witch who appears in the form of a gorgeous idol named Kyonko. Her songs hypnotized people and she used them as slaves to make them rob jewelry stores so she could get the jewels she wanted. She has a strong love of jewels and has a wonderful singing voice which she uses to hypnotize whoever listens to it. She would do anything to get them even if she has to steal them or hypnotize people with her voice to make them steal. If a jewelry store did not have anymore jewels, she would burn it down to the ground. When she was not performing, her civilian name was Nise Shōjo (meaning false girl, referring to her not really being a human). She pretended to be friends with the girls, insisting that they call her "Ni-chan". Then she betrayed them by revealing her true identity. Jaakuna, as the Cures called her due to her having a long name, was defeated by Cure Moonbeam's guitar and Cure Lovely's singing voice. She appeared in the movie "Sailor Suit Pretty Cure: Kyonko's Evil Melodies".
Kashikoi Kusabana AKA Miko-san
Voiced by: Minori Chihara
Kashikoi Kusabana is a miko, or shrine maiden, of the Sayaku Shrine. She attends a private Catholic school. She is a serious person and may appear emotionless, but she has a sense of humor, is lively, and likes anime and manga. In fact, she gets things done as quickly--yet efficiently--as possible so she can watch her favorite anime The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and read her favorite manga Codename: Sailor V. She likes other anime and manga, like Mermaid Melody (anime) and Shugo Chara (manga) but she likes these two the most. She was called Miko-san, Kusabana-san, and Kashikoi-san (by the other Cures; not by Bunny, Itsuki, and Amaimomo), but then she was called Kashi-chan by all of the Cures. Kashikoi was the Cures' ally and had the ability to tell if someone is a human, a non-human, an alien, a time-traveler, an esper, and a shape-shifter; she inherited this ability from her mother. Kashi hates Jaakuna because she hypnotized innocent people to steal jewels for her selfish desires. She can also do really good impressions of Minami Iwasaki and Yuki Nagato; Kashi works at the same cosplay cafe that Bunny, Itsuki, Amaimomo, and Daisy work at. She appeared in the movie "Sailor Suit Pretty Cure: Kyonko's Evil Melodies". Kashikoi is also Harutsuki Kusabana's younger sister.

Kuro Tamashi is Empress Kurai Tamashi's brother; he is evil like his sister. The reason why he chose to work alone instead of working with his sister was because he was the youngest and was forgotten. He also was useless and weak in Kurai's eyes. Kuro wanted to prove that he was strong, so he caused a blackout to Yumehara Town which caused all light sources to be turned off and unable to be turned back on. He also made a solar eclipse and a lunar eclipse, causing entire darkness. Tamashi hates light, so that is why he got rid of it. He was defeated by the power of the Rainbow Teardrop Prism Diamond. He appeared in the movie "Sailor Suit Pretty Cure: Blackout in Yumehara Town!".

There was a manga every week published in Mahō Shōjo of Sailor Suit Pretty Cure, a short part of the story every day that was 10 pages long; the amount of pages varied depending on how long or short it was, and the purpose of the stories was to promote Sailor Suit Pretty Cure. Later, a manga series is printed, using the same manga used in the story. For more, see Sailor Suit Pretty Cure (manga).
I do not own Pretty Cure. Pretty Cure belongs to Toei Animation. But I own Sailor Suit Pretty Cure.
- The majority of the voice actors/actresses came from either Sailor Moon, Fresh Pretty Cure, Yes! Pretty Cure 5! (GoGo!), Lucky Star, or The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya; Aya Hirano also voices both Konata and Haruhi. The rest came from Smile Pretty Cure and Doki Doki Pretty Cure.
- Sailor Suit Pretty Cure has many firsts:
- It has jokes, gags, and references to Sailor Moon and other anime.
- It is the first show to air a pilot that was planned to be part of an episode, but became a pilot due to it just introducing the charcters, their personalties, and how they interact with each other.
- It was the first to show a gradual change in tone. (Episodes 1-24 have light-hearted humor, drama over-exaggered for humor with a realistic feel, comedy-oriented with action, and pokes fun of the show occasionally. Though 20-24 begin to have hints of a dark tone and dark humor. Episodes 25-50 have dark humor, drama having a realistic feel, action-oriented, and starts taking itself seriously though it has some light humor occasionally, particularly the last few episodes.)
- The Cures' outfits consist of their school uniforms--but modified--with longer hair and accessories.
- All of the Cures are really princesses but they have no memory of this except for Amaimomo who found out by herself.
- The characters are based on the Sailor Moon characters, but have their own personalties, backstories, and fears.
- 3 of the cures work at a cosplay cafe as a part-time job--one of them is also an idol--and their work outfits reference Yes! Pretty Cure 5! (GoGo!), Fresh Pretty Cure and Smile Pretty Cure.
- This show was the first to have an ending song--or any song--that represents the innocence of the girls, especially Bunny and their sailor uniforms.
- In their upgraded forms, their cure names start with "Caped".
- Although the show is mostly based on Sailor Moon, it is also based on Let's Mirage! Pretty Cure
- In fact, the two shows have a crossover together, Let's Mirage! Sailor Suit Pretty Cure.
- Nozomi's last name Yumehara is the same as Yumehara Town.
