I normally don't watch/read crossovers. Not for any reason. They just never appealed to me. The only crossovers I've ever seen are the Fairly Oddparents and Jimmy Neutron crossovers called the Jimmy Timmy Power Hours. I have some memories of them, but I don't have any interest in watching them again. Speaking of crossovers, Toei LOVES to do these with the Pretty Cure franchise, and has been doing it since 2009, when Fresh Pretty Cure was first made. While it is fun to see characters from other related series interact, Toei's had a habit of making these movies more about milking it's cash cow, selling toys, and catering to children rather than making the crossovers actually mean something. I will admit, I haven't seen the All Star movies 1 through 3, though I hear they're pretty bad, so I won't watch them. However, my interest became piqued when I read about the story for a new series of Precure All Stars movies, the New Stage, the first movie having a completely movie original character as a main character, even moreso when I learned the girl is shy, moved to a new town, makes a new friend who happens to be the movie's villain, and other issues normal people like her can relate to. Out of curiosity, I downloaded the movie and watched it all the way through. I expected nothing but a really bad, choppy, cheesy story put together for the purpose of selling toys. What I got was...entirely different. (Source: myanimelist.net)
