You're Kidding?! Spring Scenery and the Voice of Cicadas (うっそー!? 春の景色とセミの声 "Usso?! Haru no keshiki to Semi no Koe"?) is the 4th episode of the season Futari wa Pretty Cure Splash Star, and also the 100th episode of Pretty Cure franchise overall.


Mai attempts to discover the true meaning of to the Scenery of Spring for a contest.


Mai is busy drawing a picture of the Sakura Trees when Saki approaches to watch her. Mai, surprised, scolds Saki for this, and she apologizes before complimenting the picture. She tells Mai that she could focus on a career in art, and someone else agrees with the girls, introducing herself as Takeuchi Ayano, a second year student of Art Club. She goes on to ask Mai about joining the Art Club and an upcoming contest, to which Saki starts to answer for Mai until Ayano tells her off for it.

When lunch approaches, the girls sit together but Saki notices how quiet Mai is being. She tries to ask if she is alright, and Mai insists that she is.

Later that evening, Mai explains the theme to her brother, and asks him what he thinks of it. He replies with frogs and she gets flustered until their mom shows up to mention that they may catch a cold if they stay outside too long during the evening. Mai decides to ask her dad, calling him at work, but he suggests a Lynx, not understand why a Spring Constellation wouldn't be a good idea. She hangs up and lays on her bed, determined to think of something she can enter. 

Saki asks

Saki asking Mai about her picture

The next morning, Mai chats with Saki and they share a laugh recalling the prior morning. She brings up that she only has until Sunday to decide what to do, but she still has no ideas. To show support Saki decides to go with Mai as she decides to leave in order to search for inspiration. Flappy suddenly appears and claims that Spring reminds him of New Love, but as Choppy appears, she is unable to think of anything herself- not realizing that Flappy was trying to confess his own feelings to her.

For inspiration the girls travel up the mountain side and see the whole view of town: including water, several buildings, and greenery. Mai glances down the hill to notice a cabbage field, and Saki mentions how well a Spring Cabbage fits with Spring, so they head down to investigate them a bit more closely. Mai decides this can be what she enters and sits down to start her project. In this time Saki takes off to grab drinks and returns, sitting down as Mai points out that Spring Cabbage usually doesn't grow this quickly. Saki offers to take a look for her while she continues to draw, but stops to help an elderly woman struggling with a cart. 

As thanks, the woman invites Mai inside for a drink. Mai asks to lend a hand to the woman for the upcoming harvest. The woman hesitates, insisting she doesn't have to, but since Mai really wants to she agrees.

Saki travels in the forest with Flappy and tries to find her way through it. She notices that it is only growing darker and darker, and he asks her if she is sure she knows the way back. She insists that she does, since she used to play there as a child all of the time.

Meanwhile, Mai helps the woman and at first she struggles- but she soon manages to get the hang of it. She soon finds it fun, and the woman tells her that now they are finished she can go if she would like since she only has to clean now. Mai lifts up the last box when Choppy detects something weird.

At the time, Flappy says the same with Saki, causing her to express disbelief. Suddenly, many cicada fly by and head towards Mai's location as Karehan reveals himself. He notices that both girls are not present, and is ready to attack knowing that he has an advantage without them together to transform.

Saki is quick to take off to find Mai while he chases after her. She manages to locate her as she runs outside, just in time to see a glowing cicada transform into an Uzaina. The girls waste no time transforming into Pretty Cure, and at first, it seems that the Uzaina hardly uses any effort to toss them aside. They fend it off with the power in their arms and legs before launching their Twin Stream Splash on the cicadas to free them from the Uzaina. They fly away and Karehan retreats, allowing the girls to change back to normal.

Saki and Mai get excited

They wait for the elderly woman to wake up, but to their surprise, they are joined by Ayano. She explains that the elderly woman is her grandmother.

Later at school the girls walk through a hallway full of submissions for the contest. As they observe the various pictures Mai decides she doesn't actually feel all that bad about losing when Ayano joins them and mentions that Spring isn't very apparent in the entry that did win. They head over to Mai's picture, a portrait of the woman she met and helped, and Saki asks Mai why she changed her mind. Rather then answer, Mai just asks for an opinion, explaining that she was trying to draw a picture of the woman holding one of her cabbages- but her smile distracted her and it ended up covering the entire picture. Ayano claims this picture is the best and the girls take off for home afterwards.

As they walk home, Mai explains that because of Saki she had decided to join the Art Club. Saki tries to deny having any involvement, but she is clearly happy about it. Flappy appears and tells Saki he is hungry, and they begin to bicker until Choppy starts crying, leading to more bickering as Mai tries to calm her.
