The Japan Platform for Patent Information (J-PlatPat) has recorded the information that a ‘Delicious Party PreCure’ trademark has been filed by Toei Animation on 19th October.
Speculation from the PreCure community has been evident, noting that said trademark application could potentially be a new series involving the franchise.
Said information was filed under the application number ‘2021-129248’, which has the trademark registration, alongside with a logo.
Fans have speculated that the trademark application potentially hints to a food-related ‘PreCure’ series due to the motifs present. This draws similarity to the series’ 12th generation title ‘Kirakira Pretty Cure a la Mode’. Said series revolves around a student who makes sweets and wishes to work in a patisserie, but struggles to make anything good.
