Toei Animation is co-producing Kibou no Chikara ~Otona Precure 23~ with Studio Deen.

Yes! Precure 5 premiered in 2007 and was both the fourth Precure title and the first to feature more than a pair of Pretty Cures (Yes! Precure 5 featured five, while 2008’s Yes! Precure 5 GoGo! increased the number to six). On the other hand, Futari wa Pretty Cure Splash Star was the third entry in the franchise.

The Pretty Cure franchise began with 2004’s Futari wa Precure (titled Pretty Cure in English), which had a 2005 second season subtitled Max Heart that began airing right after its end. The latest series is Soaring Sky! Pretty Cure (Hirogaru Sky! Precure), which premiered in Japan on February 5 this year.
