Beware of the Cute Student Teacher! (イケてる実習生に気をつけろ! "Iketeru Jisshūsei ni ki wo Tsukete!"?), dubbed Who's the New TA? in the English dub, is the 3rd episode of the season Futari wa Pretty Cure, and also the 3rd episode of Pretty Cure franchise overall.

To quickly put an end to Pretty Cure, Pisard infiltrates their school, pretending to be a substitute teacher.


The episode begins with the Evil King having a discussion with Pisard, who explains that he is trying to extract the energy from the Pretty Cures' town. Evil King strikes with a flash of lighting, stating that Pisard can easily be replaced and that he better remember this, making Pisard promise that next time he won't fail him.

Meanwhile at the Wakabadai Station, Nagisa is with Shiho and Rina, thinking about how Pisard a second time came to try and take Mepple and Mipple. She soon begins to think about Fujipi when he suddenly appears behind her and says something. Thinking that he was talking to her, she begins to blush and panic, only to see that it was his friend behind her saying he was late. The two boys run right past her and say nothing.


At Verone Acadamy, the Principal and Vice Principal are discussing how nice the weather is before the Principal asks if the Student Teachers will be coming the following day. After this is confirmed they start chatting about their ages.

In the classroom the students are being given the itinerary for the field trip coming up next week when Yoshimi mentions that one of the girls will have to be the leader. While thinking this over, Nagisa and her friends are quietly discussing the student teachers, only for Yoshimi to catch Nagisa and ask if she was listening. Suspicious, she decides to put her in charge of the organization, only to wonder if she made a poor decision when Nagisa tries to protest. After realizing it won't do any good she stops protesting, with Yoshimi deciding to take precaution by asking Honoka to help Nagisa with the pamphlets.

Later, having just changed after lacrosse practice, Rina brings up her plans to run home before heading off to her appointment at the hair salon. Shiho asks if it's because of the new student teacher coming the following day and considers joining her while Nagisa tries to tell them they are getting too excited. Just then, Honoka comes by, causing Mepple and Mipple to wiggle excitedly and try to communicate with each other. The noise is noticed by the girls, but Nagisa and Honoka quickly change the topic, eventually leaving Nagisa's confused friends behind.

As the two walk home, Nagisa quickly scolds Mepple and asks when he woke up as they arrive at the Yukishiro household. Honoka invites Nagisa in, and she is greeted by Chuutaro while remarking on how quiet it is. Honoka explains that this is because her parents work outside of the country, so it is only her and her grandmother living there at the time. She then excuses herself at her room, leaving Nagisa behind to watch as Mepple and Mipple come out to see one another. Nagisa notices a turned-over picture frame in Honoka's room, of a man named Dr. Breckston.

When Honoka returns she brings up the fairies alternate forms and asks for an explanation. Mepple and Mipple describe their current, stuffed animal forms as being their true forms and explain that because they must conserve their energy, they often change into cellphone-like compact forms when in the Garden of Rainbows. However, this does let them take true form in small incriments each day. Mepple then goes on to explain the Prism Stones, a special life stone with the power of creation, and how their home land, the Garden of Light was protected by the seven Stones. But when the Dotsuku Zone attacked they stole five of them and for safety measures he and Mipple were given the remaining two and was forced to flee. It is Pretty Cure's mission to protect the holders of the Prism Stones and take back the remaining five.

Suddenly, the story comes to a stop as Honoka's grandmother arrives with cookies. She properly introduces herself to Nagisa and takes a moment to observe the duo, commenting on how nice of a pair they make as she leaves.

Meanwhile in town, Pisard is observing the townspeople as they unknowingly continue on with their daily lives. Thinking about when he met Nagisa and Honoka a few days earlier, he begins to plot his next move.

The following day, a mysterious stranger wanders the locker area when a man finds him and ask if he is a student teacher. Surprised, the man tells the stranger that he was told the Student Teacher wouldn't be coming due to a cold, before showing him outside where the introduction ceremony is being held. They introduce the strange man to everyone, but he pays them little to no attention, using the opportunity to scan the crowd in search of the Pretty Cure. While he doesn't notice the attention many of the females are giving him, he happens to spot Nagisa and recognizes her fairly quick.

Pisard and Yoshimi

After the assembly, Mr. Kazama, as the man (Pisard) presented himself, walks with Yoshimi, who introduces herself to him as his mentor. Her attraction to him soon becomes evident, as she ask if he thinks they were destined to meet. He pays her no mind until realizing he can use her to his advantage, and asks her to bring Nagisa to him to talk.

During class, Yoshimi suddenly stops and asks Nagisa to join her. They head towards the gym where Pisard is waiting, only for the Vice Principal to come by and wonder where his students are. He suddenly retreats after the new teacher shoots him a look. When Nagisa arrives to the gym, she sees the teacher from earlier, and he demands the Prism Stones, revealing to have taken Yoshimi captive. He reveals that he cannot guarantee she will be safe if he doesn't get what he wants and Nagisa tries to deny having it, but he doesn't believe her, aiming his sharp nails at Yoshimi.

Suddenly Honoka shows up, holding both Mepple and Mipple. She goes to Yoshimi after Nagisa is knocked down while Mipple tells her and Nagisa to transform. After doing so, Pisard forms a Zakenna which proceeds to possesse the nearby gym device and throws multiple things at the girls. They just barely dodge and climb the nearby gym ropes when they notice a hypnotized Yoshimi walking along the bars on top, causing them to panic and try to reach her while basketballs fly at them.

While Nagisa climbs down with their teacher, Honoka defends them from the basketballs, but ends up taking one to the stomach, temporarily disabling her. They reach the floor as the Zakenna possesses the stage curtains and they spring to life, wrapping the three females in cloth before throwing them at a wall. Angrily the girls use Marble Screw on the Zakenna, causing the dark energy to break apart and the small, remaining stars to run away.

Nagisa flustered-0

Nagisa flustered

Meanwhile in class, Shiho remarks that Honoka, Nagisa, and their teacher have been gone for sometime now. But Rina doesn't really care since she's just happy class isn't going on at the time.

Back in the gym, Nagisa and Honoka try to wake up Yoshimi. She is startled and demands to know why they're not in class, but Honoka's dodgy attempts to make an excuse without revealing the truth causes her to believe they were trying to skip class. As she is pushing them back to the room where the class is waiting, Honoka quietly remarks on her sudden amnesia to Nagisa as the episode ends.
