A Surprising Reunion! Who Are We Exactly!? (おっどろきの再会! ふたりは何者なの!? Oddoroki no Saikai! Futari wa Nani Mono Nano!??) is the 1st episode of the season Futari wa Pretty Cure Splash Star, and also the 97th episode of Pretty Cure franchise overall.


Two girls are reunited after a fateful encounter in the past, and in the process they learn about their destiny as the next Pretty Cure.


A girl practices her softball pitching with her team as a strange cloud passes by, casting a dark shadow. The team continues to practice as Saki strikes out one bater after another and mentions her plans of getting an ice cream if she is able to strike out at least ten. When asked who had promised her something so odd, she and the catcher, Yuuko confess and apologize.

Meanwhile, the Mishou family drives into the town and discuss how five years have passed since they were last there. Kazuya asks his little sister, Mai how she feels about it, and she comments that it feels nice while the car pulls up to a small observatory. The family steps inside.


Saki and Mai's reunion at the Sky Tree.

Saki sits below the Sky Tree with an ice cream and starts eating as she spots Mai staring at the tree. She is surprised and starts to choke. As she calms down the girls stare at each other- only for a light to suddenly fall from the sky and form a crater in the ground, which transforms into a blue fairy-like creature, Flappy. He comments that he didn't plan to land that hard, only for a white fairy to land on top of him by the name of Choppy.

Seeing the girls they explain themselves as beings from the Land of Fountains, and explain to the girls how they know each other. They remind the girls of an event from five years back, when the girls were younger. The fairies resume by explaining they have come to seek help, when a little girl by the named of Minori runs up to Saki, her older sister. Saki tries to show her the strange creatures but they see that they have vanished, unaware that they have transformed into objects and hid themselves in their pockets.

Minori explains to Saki that she has some deliveries to do for the Bakery, as the car broke down.

Hearing this, Saki takes off for home and picks up the items, hopping onto her bike and taking off. She is stopped by Flappy not long after, and he explains how his form change works. He needed to change into an item that seems natural at this time and age in order to blend in. As he witnesses the dark shadow form again, he tells her that they need to find Choppy and Mai, so they rush back to the Sky Tree.

Happy Flappy and Choppy after Saki and Mai's reunion.

At the Tree, Mai is chatting with Choppy when the other two show up. The girls are still unable to recall how they knew each other, and impatiently the fairies remind them. They had met at a Festival when they were younger and they followed a shooting star near the Sky Tree. Their meeting was only for a moment, and their conversation was cut short as Saki's mom, and Kazuya showed up to retrieve the missing children.

Suddenly, Karehan shows up and demands that Mai hands over Choppy and the location of the Fountain of the Sun. Mai refuses, knowing that this can't be good, and the fairies attempt to fight on their own, using their light to protect the girls but wind up injured.

Cure Bloom and Cure Egret's expressions after their first transformation.

Saki and Mai pick up them up and try to protect them, and with their aid they find themselves changing transforming into Cure Bloom and Cure Egret.

Karehan uses a nearby tree to summon an Uzaina and the girls quickly make work of it with the use of Twin Stream Splash.

The next day at school, Saki starts to wonder who that girl she met really was. They were unable to properly introduce themselves to each other, even as children, so she is very curious. To her surprise, Mai suddenly walks in and is introduced to the class as the new transfer student. As Saki recognizes her, Mai starts to introduce herself as the episode ends.
