When Tarte goes to the human world with Chiffon to search for Pretty Cure, she worries deeply, and is relieved when he comes back for a short visit with Pretty Cure tagging along.FPC32 However, she is feeling a bit worried about the Pretty Cures with him. After their short visit to the Elder, he told Tarte to go to the Mushy Bean Woods and get the item deep inside the shrine.

Unlocking the Clover Music Box
In the Mushy Bean Woods, Tarte learns that Azukina wanted him to come back, and said that she released the seal of the Mashin monster so he can't get the item the Elder told him. As Tarte learned the truth, he still protects his fiance even if the Mashin monster is proven to be too powerful for both him and the Pretty Cures. Azukina takes matters in her own hands and went to the shrine, evading some of the monster's attacks until it got her. But her determination and her love to Tarte made her to not give up and finally got the item in the shrine, which turns out to be the Clover Box. As the song from the box calms the Mashin monster, Cure Peach purified it using Love Sunshine Fresh and sealed it back. After that, they returned to the Elder and he is amazed that they all got the item and he entrusted the Clover Music Box to Tarte. Azukina apologized to Tarte on what she did back then and how she is a bad fiance. Tarte apologized her and accepted her back as he and the cures returned back to the human world.
