The first two episodes win THREE awards for defying the standard formula of the Precure franchise. First, having Mamo wait until Ira's Monster of the Week was taken down to throw her own into the ring. Second, As soon as both monsters are vanquished, rather than simply teleport away, both step into the fray to battle Cure Heart themselves. And just when it couldn't get any more awesome, she manages to hold her own against BOTH of them.
Bel breaks the rules as well in episode 6, he sends the Precures to a different realm!
Makoto manages to cut through a cutting board with a knife. It's an accident, but still!
In Episode 7, rather than falling into despair at Bel's triumphant Evil Laugh at having (apparently) trapped the Precures in the ruined Trump Kingdom, Mana counter-EvilLaughs him and confidently challenges that if he can hop between dimensions, they will just beat him until he transports them back. Pure. Bad. Ass.
Episode 12, Mana was able to serve a mob of hungry students from overrunning the cafeteria lady, hearing and then matching half-a-dozen rapidly shouted orders of bread and refreshments, as well as matching the right change to each corresponding student. Even outside battle, Mana-chan is a force to be reckoned with.
Episode 13, Mamo manages to ensnare Heart, Diamond and Sword. She also believe that Rosetta is the weakest because she uses barriers. Rosetta then proceeds to use her martial arts skills and kick Mamo's ass.
