Go To

Widescreen Pretty Cure is a Curefic by Ryanasaurus0077 with a widescreen thematic.

This Curefic contains examples of:

  • Apologetic Attacker: Ignis and Glace do this quite a bit when fighting Pretty Cure.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: From episode 1, after Hikaru gets abducted: "Considering the professional look to the camera, I wondered to myself if my captor was not only a stalker and a kidnapper, but also a thief."
    • Arson, Murder, and Admiration: In episode 1, Hikaru notes in reference to how his Involuntary Dance didn't feel forced, "Yeah, not only was my captor a stalker, kidnapper, and possibly a thief, but also one very skilled at mind control, and at that he was no amateur."

  • Boomerang Bigot: Erica is hinted to be one; she actually outright states in episode 1 that she doesn't "feel very comfortable around other honkies".
  • Crash-Into Hello: How Hikaru meets his ballet teacher after his first PE class at Anamorph Junior High.
  • Creepy Twins: Ignis and Glace.
  • Dance Battler: Hikaru. Also Black Widow's fraternal twin assistants, Ignis and Glace, who do all the fighting for her.
  • Dragged into Drag: Hikaru during dance class.
  • Everything Is Racist: One film studies student is quick to tag another as sexist simply for voicing her thoughts about the football coach ("I knew she was a football coach, but I thought she'd be an association football coach!").
    • Discussed early on in episode 2. "It just goes to show how far bigotry has gone. It seems everyone these days is a bigot whether they like it or not. Blame it on the times, I guess."
  • First-Person Perspective: The story is told by Hikaru for the most part; however, there are some scenes, particularly set in Silent Scream's HQ, that are presented in third person.

  • 555: Hikaru's phone number.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: Initially played straight with Ignis and Glace, though it's hinted that it may be otherwise.
  • Genre Savvy: Hikaru takes a level in it after gender-inverting the Distressed Damsel trope.
  • The Glasses Come Off: Hikaru as Cure Cinemascope, in reference to how the real Cinemascope was advertised as viewable without special glasses (as a Take That! to the 3-D Movie craze going on back then).
  • Gratuitous German: Erica has her moments; justified, as her surname is of Germanic origin.
  • Involuntary Dance: Hikaru is subjected to this after being captured in episode 1.
  • Lady and Knight: Inverted with Cure Cinerama and Cure Cinemascope.
  • Lady of War: Glace, one of the two twins accompanying Black Widow in her appearances.
  • Mafia Princess: Erica is the daughter of one. This is actually a more sympathetic example.
  • Advertisement:
  • Malicious Misnaming: Subverted; it's more a case of ??? not understanding that Hikaru feels embarrassed by her constantly calling him "princess" and Hikaru not understanding that she isn't doing it to be mean. In other words: simple miscommunication.
  • Megane: Hikaru, again.
  • Meganekko: Erica.
  • Modesty Shorts: Worn by ??? with her school uniform.
  • Multiethnic Name: Played with; Word of God is that Erica Hahn got her name so it'd easily blend in with other Japanese names. Case in point: in Japanese, it's rendered as Han Erika (漢 恵梨香).
  • Noble Bigot: Erica may not like the company of other white people, but she's a good person to be around.
  • The One Thing I Don't Hate About You: In episode 2, Erica notes, "If there was one good thing about being around other whiteys, it's that back in California, my dancing was something to be admired."
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: The bloomers worn during gym class reflect this.
  • Prim and Proper Bun: Erica is always seen wearing a bun even outside of dance class.
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt: Part of Erica's wardrobe.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Ignis and Glace are hinted to be this when they first appear.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Hikaru, a shotokan karate student, doesn't just go to ballet class but also does so while wearing a pink leotard, skirt, and ballet shoes. When Erica calls him on it, he counters by bringing up a couple of Real Life examples of this trope in action (though the second one is technically inaccurate, the organization he's referring to is actually one affiliated with the Maritime SDF).
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Played straight with Ignis, but Played for Laughs with Shimizu-sensei in episode 1.
  • Rule of Three: In episode 1, Hikaru performs selections from three different ballets while in captivity. He completes the third one right before Cure Cinerama rescues him.
  • Shout-Out: In episode 2, ??? refers to the in-development fantasy novel and film series, Queen of the Tearling.
  • Shrinking Violet: Yumi.
  • Take That!: The author gets in a potshot at the Disney executive gang led by Michael Eisner by referring to them as "the Paramount Mafia".
  • Tap on the Head: How Hikaru falls into the hands of his captor in episode 1.
  • Tempting Fate: Done at the start of the first episode and again shortly before the eyecatch of the same episode.
  • Token White: Erica's the only foreigner in Anamorph's first-year ballet class.
  • True Blue Femininity: Glace, again.
  • Years Too Early: Ririko Oba, a Prima from the third-year ballet class, tells Hikaru on his first day of pointe training that he's "light years away from reaching the same heights as Anna Pavlova, Ekaterina Maksimova, Maria Tallchief, Dame Margot Fonteyn, Monica Mason, Lynn Seymour, and the other greats that came before [him]". Given the context, it's not being used as an insult, but rather to motivate him to practice hard and practice often.

How well does it match the trope?
