Redemption arcs as a whole are pretty popular in all forms of media, most likely due to the fact that the concept of redemption usually requires a lot of focus and development of the character being redeemed. Precure too has had various different redemption arcs for its villains, but the most known arcs are the ones where the villain ends up becoming a Precure as well. In the currently airing Go! Princess Precure, we also have a villain who sees the light and becomes a Precure, but with three other varying redemption arcs straddling behind it, how does it fare compared to its redemption arc ancestors?   Note! Spoilers for Futari wa Precure: Splash Star, Fresh Precure, Suite Precure, and Go! Princess Precure will be discussed here.

b12336a03c587e6c630417d68331d4fa
