Dance and Pretty Cure... Which to Choose? (ダンスとプリキュア…どちらを選ぶ? "Dansu to Purikyua... Dochira o Erabu?"?) is the 20th episode of the season Fresh Pretty Cure! and also the 262nd episode of the Pretty Cure franchise overall.


In preparation for the dance competition, the Pretty Cure attempt to balance that with school, home lives, and their duties as Pretty Cure - but this takes a large toll on their health and leaves them exhuasted and irritable.


Miyuki watches Love, Inori, and Miki train when they tiredly come to a stop after finishing the finale. Miyuki warns them not to slack off, causing them to grow anxious. She also points out that they only have a week before the contest starts, and scolds them for tiring out so easily. In an attempt to get on her good side again, the trio attempt to show Miyuki that they are energetic and encouraged to keep going - but they grow embaressed and hungry, so she calls a break.

At Kaoru's Cafe, Miki and Inori talk about being scolded and worry they aren't good enough as they notice Love dozing off. They ask about the strange monster they they faced last time, and Love comments on how much more powerful it was compared to their previous fights. They wonder if they can really continue to fight like this, depressing Miki and Inori. Love cheers them up though, claiming they will be fine if they continue to work together. Miyuki calls for them, saying they had a long enough break. The girls return before thanking Kaoru for the donuts, but when he comes to the table he sees they didn't even eat any. 


Love failed to jump over the boxes

The next morning, Love was late for school and immediately went out of the house eating a few bites of breakfast. After she left, Ayumi was worried for her health and comments that barely eating isn't good for the body. Tarte and Chiffon express concern over her; with Tarte eying the remaining food.

During Gym Class, Love's class were doing jump and when Love starts, she became dizzy and falls over, injuring herself. They take a break a bit later and she attempts to reach a bar until Daisuke came up to her. He brings up the box and Love comments that she assumed he was going to taunt her for this, so she asks that he leaves her alone. Daisuke confesses that he worried due to her strange behavior, like sleeping in class and not finishing lunch. However, Love shows disgust at this, since he was watching her. This upsets Daisuke and he tells Love not to overdo it before taking off.


The cameraman not agreeing with Miki's smile

Meanwhile, at a studio the cameraman tries to help Miki open up a little. She is in the middle of modeling but he notes how she doesn't seem like herself and isn't bringing her usual spirit and energy. They call a break in hopes of waking her up, but after Miki trips she starts to worry she isn't perfect enough.

Inori feeding the rabbits

At Inori's school she is busy feeding the rabbits at their pen. She goes to fetch them water but dizzily tries to balance herself to avoid falling. When she trips on a pitch fork it winds up scaring the rabbits. She appears weakened and tired, so the rabbits approach her - as if checking on her. She claims to be fine and apologizes for scaring and worrying them. 

With school over, Love is heading home until she walks past Kaoru's Cafe. He asks if she still likes his donuts and she claims she does, but she doesn't have any money on hand right now. He offers to let her have the donut though, and suggests she just pays later, knowing she would. But Love rejects the offer and takes off. Kaoru promises to make special donuts for her the next day to give them plenty of energy, seemingly aware that something concerning is going on.


Setsuna talking to Love

As Love continues to walk hoome she happens to see Setsuna approaching her. Setsuna asks her how dance is going, and Love lies by saying its going good, and that she is full of energy - but Setsuna is aware of her lie and asks her what the problem is. Love attempts to tell her, but she stops herself from doing so and quickly takes off instead.

The following morning, Love is busy packing up and preparing to head off to her dance lessons. Much to Tarte and Chiffon's alarm, she suddenly faints. She slowly awakens and Tarte tells her she is too tired to keep doing this. Chiffon begs for her to stay home, but Love comforts her by saying she is fine. She quickly finishes and takes off, leaving the saddened Chiffon to watch.


The girls confronting Eas and the Nakisakebe

Once again Love meets up with Setsuna, who tells Love that by doing two things she can always achieve both of them. Secretly her plans are to tire Love out even further, knowing she couldn't do well as Pretty Cure if she was worn out. Love thanks her before taking off, and Setsuna transforms into Eas and summons a Nakisakebe.

When the girls spot it, they run to the construction site and Love demands to know where Setsuna went, since she saw her around there. This angers Eas and she claims nobody was there, which causes Love to calm down. They transform and attempt to fight the Nakisakebe, but with their lack of strength they are barely able to beat it. As soon as they do, they faint on the street as Miyuki contnues to wait for them.
