Worries Fly Away! Everyone's Bonds Tied to Hikari (悩みぶっ飛び!ひかりを結ぶみんなの絆 Nayumi Buttobi! Hikari wo Musubu Minna no Kizuna?) is the 8th episode of the season Futari wa Pretty Cure Max Heart, the sequel to Futari wa Pretty Cure, and also the 57th episode of Pretty Cure franchise overall.


Nakao, a colleague of Akane's tries to convince her to close the Tako Cafe, to return to her original job. As she tries to deal with her feelings about this, Hikari worries over her decision and the girls try to lend her a hand so that she doesn't have to close.



Hikari asks Akane if she was going to close the Cafe

Akane worries over the recent changes she has made to her menu. She welcomes Hikari as she returns, but is surprised when Hikari asks her if she was going to close the Cafe. She asks Hikari why she would ask something like this, and she answers that she recalled what Naoko asked of her, and how he wanted her to return to the company. Akane asks where Hikari got this information, but she quickly tells her that she doesn't have to worry about anything - since she has no intention of shutting the Cafe down. It's then Nakao appears, surprising both girls.

Hikari informs Nagisa and Honoka that Akane will be closing the Cafe

Meanwhile, Nagisa and Honoka are walking while having a chat about chocolate. They are surprised to see Hikari so upset and wave to her. She quickly informs them that Akane will be closing the Cafe, shocking Nagisa. Hikari points out that she isn't entirely sure of this, but she believes this to be what will happen. Honoka mentions how hard it is to decide between two very good things, and it must be why Akane is struggling to decide.

Meanwhile, the boy at the mansion is playing with the Zakenna, only for the swing he is on to go too high up; forcing Uraganos to save him from falling. The little boy then runs into the nearby woods to play as Circulas speaks with Uraganos regarding Shiny Luminous.

Hikari returns to the Cafe, about thirty minutes late, causing Akane to scold her and command her to clean up the garbage. Pollun peaks from her pocket and after a moment of surprise, Hikari realizes that Akane was probably worried about her.

Hikari and Pollun practice a new word they have recently learned

That evening, Hikari and Pollun practice a new word they have recently learned. Pollun accidentally breaks a tea cup that was sitting nearby and quickly apologizes, but Hikari claims it is fine - as her thoughts are more or less focused on Akane anyway. She decides to go to bed soon after, with Akane proceeding to do the same. The next day, Nagisa and Honoka head to school, discussing Akane before they make the decision to meet up with her and Hikari at the Cafe.

Nagisa and Honoka meet up with Hikari at the Cafe

Upon arrival, they ask Hikari about her location as they notice that Akane isn't there. Hikari informs them that she had a shopping trip to take to the Supermarket near the Train Station. Pollun suddenly appears and requests to play with Nagisa, but she shows shock in this and scolds him for not thinking clearly; considering the fact that a customer could have showed up just then and seen him. Hikari claims that it is fine though, and allows Pollun to play with Nagisa. So Nagisa runs off with the Mascots to the forest while Honoka stays behind with Hikari.

Together they play, until Nagisa seems to lose her patient with Pollun and asks him to stop, or else she would get mad. To her surprise, Pollun claims that it would be okay if Nagisa got angry with him - in fact encouraging just a little bit in hopes that she will.

At the Cafe, Hikari and Honoka chat about Akane. Honoka asks if Hikari could do anything to help her, and Hikari admits that she knows Akane is really upset by this. She recalls how sad she looked earlier, and Honoka suddenly spots a Cherry Blossom tree. She comments that it may bloom after other trees, but it is always beautiful.

Akane answers her cellphone, where she tells the person she plans to head over to Nakao's house after work ends.


Nagisa sits down to talk with the Mascots

Nagisa sits down to talk with the Mascots, still in the woods. Pollun asks her why Hikari doesn't get mad at him, like Nagisa herself does, when Honoka suddenly appears to say "If you really care about someone, you can get angry at them without even meaning it". But this only saddens Pollun and he takes off while crying.

Hikari serving an old woman

In this time, Akane returns to the Cafe to see that Hikari is serving an older woman. She is surprised by how seriously Hikari is working and compliments her and the impressive business she is able to do on her own. She recalls her young granddaughter, who wishes to help out just like Hikari does.

This causes Akane to shed a few tears over the overwhelming happiness. She returns inside the Cafe and asks Hikari if she has been practicing how to make Takoyaki. Hikari answers that she has, then tells her what she has truly been feeling this entire time, then voices how glad she is for everything she has said to her up until this point.

It's suddenly that Pollun appears, waving a can of whip cream. He wishes to help but Hikari claims she is doing fine and that he can go to play with the others. This causes him more sadness and he runs elsewhere.


Akane tells Naoko that they need to follow their own paths

Nagisa and Honoka return to the Cafe in this time and they ask for an update from Akane. They tell her that they know she may have something on her mind, and they want her to know that she can tell them the truth if she wishes to. Akane says that she is already decided and Nakao walks to the Cafe. She tells him that they need to follow their own paths and that the Business will be fine without her. Her little Cafe will grow bigger some day and this is the right place for her to be.

Nakao admits that he expected her to say, then he goes on to bring up something else; only for her to interrupt and say they should save it for somewhere else. So the two of them walk away to chat more personally.

Suddenly, Uraganos appears and Nagisa and Honoka transform to Cure Black and Cure White. Uraganos says that he does not have time to fight with them and demands that they bring Shiny Luminous to him. The girls refuse, saying that they won't let him take Hikari away. He responds by attacking them with a blast of orange energy.

Honoka and Hikari watching the Cherry Blossoms bloom

In this time, Hikari searches for Pollun and finds a huge mess in the kitchen. She sees him doing something and scolds him, saying that he was being naughty. Touched that she actually scolded him, they embrace and suddenly are caught by Uraganos.

Hikari runs to front of him and transforms to Shiny Luminous, saying that he can't touch the Cafe because it is Akane's dream kingdom, along with her own. Uraganos tries to destroy the Cafe but Luminous stops him with her Heartiel Baton. Cure Black and Cure White stop him with Marble Screw Max to drive him away.

As things return to calm, the girls sit together to have ice cream while watching the Cherry Blossoms bloom.
