Setsuna's Anguish: I Can't Become Your Comrade!!! (せつなの苦悩 わたしは仲間になれない! "Setsuna no Kunō: Watashi wa Nakama ni Narenai!!"?) is the 24th episode of Fresh Pretty Cure! and also the 266th episode of the Pretty Cure franchise overall.


Setsuna feels remorse for the damage she has caused and refuses to become a Pretty Cure as the others try reaching out to her.


Setsuna is sitting on a hill and thinking when Love's mom, Ayumi, walks past to see her. Sensing she is troubled, Ayumi sits down and begins to make conversation.

Meanwhile Love, Miki and Inori are wondering what to do and how to get Setsuna to join them. Love comes up with an idea and runs to ask her mom, who just got back home. They set out to find Setsuna and try to look around various places in hopes of finding her- such as the Clover Bowl, hospital, and they even ask birds and people but with no luck.

At the fortune telling mansion, Westar also decides to go look for her, unwilling to accept that she is not Eas any longer.

As this is going on Setsuna continues to think over things. She is unsure of what to do since she cannot return to Labyrinth anymore, and being a Pretty Cure is out of the question. Seeing a light up ahead, she begins to follow it and finds the girls. She is surprised when Love invites her to have dinner with them and she hesitantly agrees- recognizing Ayumi when they meet up with her. Ayumi believes this must be a sign, and as dinner starts Setsuna is very distant until she sees how happy Love's family is. She realizes in this time that she was wrong in trying to destroy everyone's smiles and happiness and finds herself having fun after a while.

Just then Westar appears and makes a bell tower Nakewameke. Love and Setsuna run out to see what is going on and Love quickly transforms into Cure Peach. Setsuna is only capable of watching, not wanting to transform and help when she still can't forgive herself. Cure Peach tries to fight the Nakewameke but is thrown to the floor. Setsuna runs up to help her but is then faced with Westar. He tries getting her back to Labyrinth by showing her the misfortune he was bringing. She appears genuinely shocked and in dismay, transforming into Cure Passion before fighting him and claiming that she isn't Eas anymore. She is attacked by the Nakewameke and saved by Peach as Berry and Pine arrive. Passion uses Happiness Hurricane to finish off the Nakewameke.

The four girls, and Love's parents walk home after changing back to normal. Seeing how lost she has become in this time, Love asks Setsuna if she would like to live at her house with her, with her parents agreeing on this. Further surprised, Setsuna begins to cry and accepts, making everyone feel happy.
