As it heads into its winter finale, Tropical-Rouge Pretty Cure seems to have truly found its stride.
To be fair, the show does try to make Maria face up to her own philosophies.
Maria constantly finds ways around this by casting magic when she is not looking and pretending it wasn't her doing, or having her familiars blindfold her, which frustrates Ezekiel.
A good set of soundtrack has to go with the flow to get the job done.
You see, she hates war, and her unique amongst witches status as a virgin gives her enough clout with the Catholic Church to watch over her local village unimpeded.
Not that sexy is bad, it's just that Maria and Artemis' revealing character designs easily could have been exploited in service of cheesecake, and yet such shots are surprisingly absent.
