Personal Quote: "The unexamined life is not worth living." - Socrates
Smile Precure character designs feels like catchy songs; once you see them, they will never leave your head.
Found it amusing that Thomas Romain, a Frenchman who used to work on shows that took cues from anime (Like Code Lyoko and Oban Star Racers) went on to actually work on anime, and not just normal anime, but the "out there" kinds (Romain serve as ship designers in Space Dandy and art director for first season of Symphogear)
Umakoshi made a long-running show about cute newbie witches that is so popular that a new movie installment is coming out soon.
Then he went on to make Casshern Sins, a gritty post-apocalyptic take on a classic Tatsunoko cartoon.
Then he make Saint Seiya Omega, the Yu-Gi-Oh GX-esque follow up to the original Saint Seiya (Both Omega and GX got a female protag with well-plotted character development and reputation as a show that divide fans on whether its actually good or not)
the next thing he know, he's a character designer in an actual Shonen anime, My Hero Academia.
What i'm saying is...believe in your dreams.
