Hugtto! PreCure Episode 28: True Love Lessons

As mentioned when I talked about my plans to start covering Aikatsu Friends! I would skip “filler” episodes of Hugtto! where not much of interest happened. Episode 27 was one of them. All readers need to know was that it helped develop Saaya some more and that Dr Traum(a) labeling himself as Ruru’s creator/father figure. Episode 28 could have been another episode to skip…were it not for one HUGE DEVELOPMENT!

Mogumogu in love.

The episode started with Homare’s pet dog Mogumogu watching a cat food commercial starring Lily the Purple Cat (Like Rory she reminded me of a certain someone from the previous PreCure.), who he immediately fell in love with. So yes, it’s a dog in love with a cat.

“Insert pleas for a 2nd season of Inugami-san and Nekoyama-san here”.

When Homare told everyone about it Hana the resident cupid (she also helps het couples) was the first to volunteer her services. Ruru however, had a hard time computing the concept of inter-species romance. In any case the other Rangers wanted to help Mogumogu too. Luckily for him Saaya saw a dog competition with the grand prize of meeting Lily in person.

Thus we got an adorable training montage complete with Monster Emiru (it’s as cute as it sounds) and several instances of Hugtan patting the doggy (also as cute as it sounds.). However, Ruru still felt uncertain about the noble canine’s quest for love.

Of course her little lover caught wind of her troubled expression and went to her. Ruru explained her doubts over Mogumogu’s quest due to his love interest being of a different species and related it with her own situation. She feared it would be impossible for an android and a human to love each other. Emiru did what she did best, sing a song to cheer her sweetie up. She told her that when it came to love species didn’t matter. She liked Ruru very much and that’s all that mattered. Her words brought Ruru great joy and the two would go on to perform at the dog competition.

Such a wonderful duo and couple.

After the song the reformed talent agency appeared and introduced her own dog, Haru entering the competition. It was neat while it lasted with both dogs getting one win apiece.

Bishin summoning the MotW.

Before the last round of the competition Bishin made her move and I have to say that while her MotW summoning ritual was brief it took the #1 spot formerly held by Ruru’s because of that creepy moment at the end. Good stuff.

Mogumogu to the rescue!

The MotW gave the Power Rangers a hard time and was about to attack a little girl. Luckily Mogumogu was able to conquer his fear of monsters and distract it long enough for EmiRuru to finish it off with style. Bishin’s personal mission to capture Harry had failed again.

Predictably the girl he saved was Lily’s owner who had a special reward for the brave little pooch. Speaking of rewards…

Emiru and Ruru's love hug.jpg

#TrueLove conquers all, including species.

Ruru: “Emiru. I love you very much”

Emiru: “Huh? Oh my! This is so sudden. I-”

Ruru: “Hug me baby.”

Keep in mind that while the two have said those magic words to each other before the power of them this time around was stronger than ever. Their love for each other grew much, much stronger that day.

Besides this magical moment there’s one more VERY important thing of note.

Dat sweet gay android ASS! Also yes it does look like they’re kissing. Give it time folks. It might not happen on screen but rest assured they’re set for life…after they beat Dr Traum(a) and the Dark Corporation of course.

Rory old bean. I summon you!

EmiRuru are the best thing about this already fantastic entry in the Pretty Cure franchise. They help make something awesome incredible.

    EmiRuru is just the best thing.
    I thought that this was going to be a Homare episode, but boom! EmiRuru. I absolutely adore both Emiru and Ruru, and the development we got in this episode is so good.

    We’re in the second half and things are still going well o_O I am very on the edge every episode that things will begin to drop. But so far, it has been fantastic!

    Very interesting how they used a love between a dog and a cat to broach the subject of a love between a human and an android, let alone that they’re both girls. This is quite the precure!

    Truly is shaping up to be the best precure ever!

    EmiRuu are so freakin adorable~

    And so much amazing fanart has been made of them, and it doesn’t even feel like fans are stretching characters a tad to get it to happen! Toei has done so much right with those two~!

    I also was one who thought this would be a homare episode. What a wonderful surprise it was~

      No need to worry dood.

      Better than how Citrus.did the human X android romance.

      Certainly is up there as one of the best.

      So many good RTs. EmiRuru’s love is beautiful.

      A most welcome surprise.

  3. I second that Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san 2nd season proposal! I need more of that!


    Bishin’s MotW summoning was indeed pretty cool. I agree.(Though I was distracted by another thing at the time so I should probably watch it again in all it’s glory.)

    EmiRuru: Oh my. Oh my. OH MY. I approve of this very greatly. SO GOOD! Relationship development, I am happy. Already at the (indecent) public hugging level, oh my indeed.

    I guess the dog was good too at the end with selflessly saving the little girl.

    Emiru in that dragon costume was so cute.
    Bishin summoning scene was pretty cool. (still unsure if that’s a boy or a girl, did they mention anything about it before?)
    More Emiru and Lulu being cute together is always welcome, that at the end looked like a legitimate confession.
    I never heard of Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san before but I read your review and now I’m really interested. I’ll watch it asap since it’s a really short one.
