Pisard is talking to the Dark King and begs him for one more chance to defeat Pretty Cure. The Dark King is very upset by all of Pisard's failures but agrees to give him one more chance. He walks past a conference table where the other villains are discussing who will go next. Pisard gets mad at them because they are doing it in a way that makes fun of all his failures to this point.
Nagisa and Honoka are hanging out together and shopping when they stop by the Tako Cafe to have lunch. Honoka lends Nagisa a handkerchief and after finishing, they sseperate to head home. But Mipple notices that Pisard is following Honoka and she runs to a currently unoccupied construction site where Pisard demands she hands over the Prism Stone that Mipple has. Pisard manages to get Mipple away from Honoka but she refuses to give up.
Meanwhile Nagisa and Mepple are worried about something and head to Honoka's home to return her handkerchief but they find out she's not home! Wondering what happened to her, Nagisa begins to search by first visiting places Honoka likes, such as the library but to no luck.
She continues to search, eventually finding her just as Pisard is about to harm her!
Deciding to be somewhat fair, Pisard allows them to fight full on as Pretty Cure in order to prove he's as good as the other villians back in the Dusk Zone. So he throws Mipple back to Honoka and the two girls are allowed to transform into Pretty Cure.

But stating its not his job, Flappy once again claims she better hurry. As she runs to school Saki slowly comes to a stop, seeing a cute boy staring at the sky. Staring for a moment Saki acccidentally interupts at the sight of the plane trail.
She apologizes before explaining that as a child she used to think the planes and clouds were filled with cotton candy and she used to dream of going up to eating it. The male laughs, stating that he likes the idea before having to leave.
....after a moment, Saki remembers she was rushing to school!
After school, Saki is lamenting the fact that she was given a lot of english homework (her least favorite class) due to being late and that she thinks its unfair when suddenly, Kenta runs by while making a joke. She scolds him instead, to which he responds that if she was in a better mood, she would have left. He leaves as Mai mentions they must be close having grown up together. But Saki denies this and instead says he is just a kid he grew up with, nothing more. Its then Mai offers to help her with the homework, as long as Saki doesn't expect her to do all of the work. Agreeing to this, Saki and Mai head over to the MIshou household.
Once they arrive, Saki begins to examine the surrounding area before she notices a very nice bookshelf, then goes on to say all of the books look too complicated for her. She then turns her attention to the gleeful Choppy, holding a clay figure Mai's mother has due to being an archeology teacher. As the two girls sit, Flappy goes on to say that Choppy must be hungry, to which Choppy shyly agrees to. Holding up their Mix Communes, somehow the cookie made by using NigiNigi and another Diamond Card is then transfered to Choppy so that she can eat it. Saki and Mai realize that Flappy gave her a present and think its very adorable, before going on to say that he must really love Choppy.

Very angry, Karehan summons a huge gust of wind and destroys part of the wall he's standing by, while stating he WILL defeat Pretty Cure.
Back at Mai's, Saki is very happy to have finished her homework just in time for the crepes Mai made for a snack. She thanks Kazuya for helping her, stating that it sounded much easier when he explained it, and even fun. He begins to talk about the things Mai said about Saki, then goes on to say she is very much as he imagined. Embaressed, Saki quickly tries to change the subject when she points to the book she saw earlier. Kazuya mentions its one of his favorites, then insist she borrows it. Saki at first denies this, but after a moment reconsiders it and accepts the book.

He is rather annoyed when he begins to ask what's keeping her anyway when they notice her walking by, peaceful and content. She sits down while talking about how wonderful Mai's older brother is, stating that he helped her finish the homework. Saki begins to read the book with Minori but soon finds herself very bored and not at all understanding such scientific terms. It's then Kenta mockingly mumbles that she'd never understand such a book when he accidentally spills tea on it! Saki Added by Chrismhbegins to panic and yell at him while running inside to get a cloth to clean it. She locks herself in her bedroom, stating that no matter how hard she cleans it the stain won't come out.
Flappy tries to insist Kenta didn't do it on purpose so she shouldn't be so hard on him, but Saki doesn't listen. The following day she is still angry, as shown when Kenta approaches her to try and apologize, but Saki instead walks around him and claims she doesn't know him as her and Mai leave. That afternoon soon comes and Mai goes to speak with Kenta, who explains he accidentally spilled tea on the book and Saki won't forgive him. Mai thinks she will if he just sincerely apologizes, but Kenta doesn't see the point since Saki is too stubborn. He then thinks if Mai apologizes to both Saki and her brother, he'll be forgiven but Mai thinks of a better way...
As soon as school ends Saki quickly runs through town while asking if they have the book. Unfortuantly its out of print so nobody makes it anymore, and finding it for sale would be very rare, even the publishers don't have any copies left. In defeat Saki leaves only to over hear Kenta begging for the book at a nearby bookstore. With an annoyed tone she quickly drags the male from the store, scolding him as he tries to apologize once more. Before he can finish though, Saki apologizes to him for getting so angry, despite it being an accident. So they agree to search for the book together....until Kenta states that they both looked through the book stores already...
It's then Mai suddenly arrives and suggest instead of checking book stores, they should check used book stores instead. As they are more likely to have out of print or low on copy books. Going inside, Saki and Mai don't see it but try to ask the clerk, who is revealed to be Karehan!

However, when they meet Cobraja's image was shown.Added by Penamesolenthe son, Miura Akira, he coldly tells them to not come to the opening. Erika proceeds to tells Tsubomi how he would proudly promote the first Miura Ramen Shop a year prior, so his present attitude is strange.
It is revealed that Akira thinks his father has stopped to care about him and his baseball activities ever since he started with ramen, and so his Heart Flower is withering. This makes him easy target for Cobraja, who is skipping his job to take pictures of himself. Then, he reveals that Akira's Heart Flower was wilting, before he steals it.

Added by CureMisaBattling a Negatone, Cure Melody and Cure Rhythm could not unite, and thus failed to conjure their final attack. In order to boost their Harmony Power, Hummy suggested that Hibiki and Kanade practice piano together. However, Hibiki was still not enthusiastic about music and refused to practise, resulting in a quarrel with Kanade again.
Depressed at home, Hibiki received a call from her mother Maria, who was working overseas. She had volunteered Hibiki and Kanade as reporters for a friend's TV show, which would focus on Kaon Town. Although Hibiki and Kanade thought that they would reject the offer, they were tempted by a buffet and an interview with Ouji respectively, and agreed to become reporters.
Added by CureMisaOn the day of filming, Kanade was nervous about being a reporter, while Hibiki was too relaxed. With their contrasting personalities, their reporting style was totally opposite as well. On one hand, having written a script and memorized it, Kanade explained the town's history, as if giving a lecture. On the other hand, Hibiki reported on anything and everything she could lay her eyes on. Pointing out each other's faults, "You're too precise", "You're too vague", the two started to bicker again. Witnessing this scene, Siren and Trio the Minor smiled. Siren then decided to take over the TV camera and use the network to broadcast the Melody of Sadness.
Added by CureMisaHibiki started to introduce the busking musicians about town, but soon met an old lady along the way and started to chat about irrelevant things. Just as things were getting out of hand, Kanade stepped in and followed up on Hibiki's report. Next, it was Kanade's turn to report on the Musical Princes. Being too nervous, Kanade could not deliver her report well. Just then, Hibiki delivered a pinch to Kanade's butt, bringing her back to herself, prompting Kanade to ask Ouji about why he loved playing music. "Why do I love playing music?... Because I managed to meet these precious bandmates whom I can unite with," he told Hibiki and Kanade. He added that Hibiki and Kanade were at that moment united.
Added by CureMisaHibiki and Kanade had finally come together as one. At that point, Siren and Trio the Minor appeared, planning to use TV to broadcast Siren's voice. However, Siren spotted a musical note hiding inside the TV camera, and changed it into a Negatone. Melody and Rhythm had a hard time battling the Negatone, until they remembered how they helped each other during the reporting session. Working in harmony, they rained strong blows upon the Negatone, and subdued it successfully with their final attack. Knowing that their hearts have become one, Hibiki and Kanade raised their Harmony Power, and began their piano practice.
One day, Miyuki was late and running to school again, when she spotted Reika watering the flowers outside the school building. Reika told Miyuki that she loves flowers, and having lots of them in school made everyone feel happy. Hearing the bell, the two rushed off to class. Miyuki continued keeping a close eye on Reika, and thinking her responsible, clever and gentle, she decided to ask Reika to become the fifth Pretty Cure.
Added by CureMisaDuring their lunch break, Miyuki announced to Akane, Yayoi and Nao that she had decided on a potential person to become the last Pretty Cure. She then led them to the sports hall where Reika was practising archery. The four asked for Reika to become Pretty Cure, but Reika turned down the offer as she was busy. When asked why she was busy, Reika admitted that the student council was busy preparing for a storytelling event which they organize for a nearby elementary school each year. As the council president was sick, Reika as vice-president had to take over his duties.
Added by CureMisaUpon hearing that the story to be told was "Snow White", Miyuki enthusiastically agreed to help out. Reika was initially hesistant at first, not wanting to burden the girls with work, but when the other girls also happily volunteered to help with the preparations, she gave in with gratitude. Everyone worked together, drawing and designing various props, and at the end, Reika was extremely grateful for their help.
The next day, the girls continued to help out at the storytelling event. Just as everyone was enjoying the show, Majorina suddenly appeared and offered her poisoned apple to the girls. She then created a Bad End alternate reality and plunged everyone into sorrow. The girls transformed into Pretty Cure to fight.
Added by CureMisaMajorina summoned a mirror Akanbe, which reflected itself to create 7 other replicas to surround the Cures. Unable to tell which was the real monster, the Cures aimed their purification attacks at different monsters, only to fail each time. In the midst of battle, the Snow White prop for the storytelling event flew towards Majorina, who called it meaningless and stepped on it. Seeing this woke Reika up from her sorrow, and when she heard Majorina insult the efforts everyone put into the event, she stepped out to shield the Cures and said that she would not forgive Majorina for what she did. This gained Reika her Smile Pact, and with Candy's guidance, she transformed into Cure Beauty!
Added by CureMisaThe remaining Akanbe replicas attacked Beauty at once, but with her wisdom, Beauty easily spotted the real monster and hit it to the ground. Then gathering her fighting spirit into her Smile Pact, she performed Beauty Blizzard and purified the Akanbe.
Added by CureMisaIn the end, the girls finished the storytelling event successfully, and Reika asked to become part of the Pretty Cure team. The others were overjoyed and said that they really liked Reika, and welcomed her to the team.
