Go To



* AllStarCast: Since the dub was recorded in Studiopolis, expect some familiar faces like Todd Haberkorn, Debi Derryberry, Laura Bailey, Colleen O'Shaughnessy, just to name a few.
* {{Blooper}}: In the English dub's "Battle On The Beach" episode, Kelsey calls what is usually called "Japanese pizza" "okonomiyaki", only for Emily to correct her and say "Snowcones? No! Japanese pizza!", pointing out that Kelsey's voice actress made a mistake.
* ContractualObligationProject: Basically how the ''Glitter Force'' dub came to be. Despite {{Website/Crunchyroll}} trying to get the streaming rights to the rest of the Pretty Cure series, Toei decided to include Pretty Cure in the same licencing deal that also gave Creator/SabanBrands the rights to ''{{Franchise/Digimon}}'' (should be noted that Saban wanted nothing to do with the Pretty Cure series to begin with). This resulted in ''Smile'' (and eventually ''Anime/DokiDokiPrecure'') getting an AshcanCopy dub work from upper management.
* DistancedFromCurrentEvents: This particular incarnation was created to make kids happy after the Sendai earthquake the year prior, as it is LighterAndSofter than past installments of ''Franchise/PrettyCure''.
* IKnewIt:
** Since the revelation of ''Smile'''s original dub name "Gangnam Girls", many fans figured that this series would be the one dubbed, based on the description of the series.
** Many fans called out Episodes 10, 17 and 19 being removed due to their subjects, 19 especially.
* MissingEpisode: Eight episodes of ''Smile'' were removed from the ''Glitter Force'' dub, [[WhatCouldHaveBeen due to the fact that Saban originally planned to air the show on]] {{Creator/Nickelodeon}} [[WhatCouldHaveBeen before getting picked up by]] {{Creator/Netflix}}. The cut episodes are 10, 17, [[NeverSayDie 19]], 26, 27, 33, 34, and 36.
* NamesTheSame: There is an Akane Hino in the [[VideoGame/TheIdolmaster Cinderella Girls]] series.
** The villain Joker shares his name with a [[ComicBook/TheJoker mad clown of Gotham]] as well as one half of Series/KamenRiderDouble. The latter coincidence eventually led to fanartists on Pixiv [[CrackPairing shipping him with Nao]] -- the [[WindIsGreen green-clad]] [[BlowYouAway wind-elemental]] Cure -- [[ShipsThatPassInTheNight despite the fact that they barely even interact]].
** There is a Shadow Realm from [[Manga/YuGiOh a certain series we're familiar with]].
* NoExportForYou: AvertedTrope! This is only [[Anime/FutariWaPrettyCure the second]] season to get an English dub, only with Creator/{{Netflix}} distributing it, and the recent worldwide expansion.
** Unfortunately, the toys didn't got a western release, meaning that the only way to get the toys is the Japanese version or the Korean version.
* PlayingAgainstType: The majority of Creator/ChinamiNishimura's characters are... let's just say [[GenkiGirl always have a hyperactive element with them]]. Reika is instead very calm and calculated.
** Actor Yūji Mitsuya tends to play comic relief characters, or the young and cute hero. Here, he's the thoroughly evil Joker.
* RelationshipVoiceActor: When dubbed, you'll notice that there are lots of Franchise/{{Naruto}} veterans on board, four of the Glitter Force girls have them ([[Creator/LauraBailey Kushina]], [[Creator/ColleenOShaughnessey Ino]], [[Creator/DanielleJudovits Tenten]] and [[Creator/KateHiggins Sakura]])
** One example from the Japanese version; it seems that [[Creator/MisatoFukuen Rika Shiguma]] [[LightNovel/{{Haganai}} and]] [[Creator/MarinaInoue Yozora Mikazuki]] have returned to team up together, this time as magical girls.
** Another example from the English version; [[Creator/LauraBailey Emily]] and [[Creator/ColleenOShaughnessey Kelsey]] [[VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles were veterans in the Second Europan War as Isara and Alicia, repectively]].
* SequelFirst: With exceptions of Australia, Canada, Germany, Italy, parts of Latin America, Spain, and the U.K; Smile is this as it's the ninth series in the franchise, but first overall to hit daylights in a few countries like US, Brazil, and France.
* ShoutOut: Miyuki's frequent shouting of "KIAI DA!!!" is one to ''Anime/GenjiTsuushinAgedama''...for pretty much the same purpose
* SoMyKidsCanWatch: According to a segment on their show ''Akashiya-san Channel'', manzai act FUJIWARA took a guest role in this show because Toshifumi Fujimoto's daughter was a huge fan of the franchise and had a massive collection of merchandise, with ''Anime/HeartCatchPrettyCure'' being her favorite series.
* TeasingCreator: Is Cure Sunny orange or red? Most would say the former, but there are some things that suggest the latter:
** The Smile Pact glows the same color as the Cure Decor that is inserted. Although Cure Sunny is orange, Akane's Cure Decor is red, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=dXL2D3B3gL8 as is the light that comes from the Pact when it's used]].
** [[http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lyyfweibj71qbckot.jpg This screenshot]] of the opening title screen shows her holding both an orange and a red balloon (the other girls carry their own colors).
** It doesn't help that in some International versions of ''Glitter Force'', Cure Sunny/Glitter Sunny is referred to as "Glitter Orange".
* TalkingToHimself: The Bad End Cures share their respective [=VAs=] with their counterparts in both versions.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Cure March was originally designed to be a purple Cure, and all the girls were going to have long hair.
** Before going with the name ''Glitter Force'', the series' English name went with the name "Gangnam Girls"
** The reason why eight episodes were cut from the ''Glitter Force'' dub was because Saban originally tried to get the show aired on Nickelodeon, which had a 20-episode limit per season.
