These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Futari Wa Pretty Cure Splash Star
Base Breaker: While not as much today, back when this series was first aired, it got quite a bit of backlash at first, due the lowered hand to hand combat elements from the previous seasons of zipping around and flying as well as beam spam and feeling like too much of a retraux of the original. Nowadays, the series is seen with much more respect and is overall much more enjoyed now, due to the fact that it introduced flight mechanics and by the series end, was able to mix the elements it introduced with some new hand to hand fights near the series end, setting a new standard for fight scenes in the series. The darker plot and better-written villains compared to the original series may have something to do with it as well. The series still has some detractors, though not as much or as volatile about it as it used to.
Kintolesky amongst the Generals of Dark fall is also the most well remembered and liked. Moerumba has a few fans as well.
Funny Moments: While Saki is trying to make a drawing of Mai to give to her as a birthday present, Kintolesky shows up while she is drawing by the Sky Tree to give her a letter challenging the Cures to a fight the next day. When Kintolesky notices Saki's drawing, he promptly starts critizing her drawing skills when he realizes the drawing is supposed to be of Mai and even points out which parts Saki must improve on.
The interactions between Karehan and Moerumba after Gohyaan brings the two of them back to life.
Les Yay: Saki and Mai (Principally in the Movie), and later these two with Kaoru and Michiru, combine with Incest Subtext.
The first ED had lots of holding hands shots between Saki and Mai.
Memetic Molester: Or more precisely, Memetic Lolicon; in-series Saki's little sister Minori is the Morality Pet of Kaoru, whose protectiveness and affection then degraded into perverted jokes quickly in fanworks.
Out-of-Character Moment: Many think that the Non-Serial Movie is this, mostly from Saki. As the relationship between Saki and Mai is extremely stable and understanding since the beginning, Feud Episode is just out of character of them note There's an episode already where they have a misunderstanding, but they don't fight like in the movie, instead go for Twice Shy scenario. Not to mention Saki's dense Jerk Ass behavior doesn't endear anyone. Almost all of the fans will recommend to avoid the movie for this very reason.
Tear Jerker: Quite a few... especially Michiru and Kaoru's "deaths" (two times!), and even an Alas, Poor Villain moment for Kintolesky and Shitataare.
