Latest Tropri marks roughly 1/5th of the runtime. I've always thought that some focus on school/clubs was a hallmark of the franchise so I'm glad it's been nothing but that, though I wish they would incorporate some side character classmates into it. Previous Precure were able to do this swimmingly, but at some point Toei just kind of stopped in lieu of only the main cast getting any attention, with the occasional singular named classmate showing up infrequently to pay lip service to the convention. I think the Precure get far better character development when they have to balance and juggle themselves amongst non-Precure in low-stakes confrontations like school events, while simultaneously still fighting off MotW and General. Bring back an actual classroom full of at least a few interesting and more fleshed out characters. If there's one thing they should keep taking from their Doremi roots, it's that.
