I'm a Princess!? Cure Flora is Born! (私がプリンセス!?キュアフローラ誕生! Watashi ga Purinsesu!? Kyua Furōra Tanjō!?) is the 1st episode of Go! Princess Pretty Cure and is the 536th episode of the Pretty Cure franchise overall.


Haruka moves to the prestigious Noble Academy, where only those with dreams may attend. She befriends her roommate, Yui, and goes on a tour of the school, but embarrassed, she distracts Yui so she doesn’t have to reveal her dream.


The episode begins with a flashback of a young Haruno Haruka, who wants to be a princess, but a couple of boys taunt her, saying that dream will never come true. As she cries a young boy named Kanata tells her that she can become a princess if she keeps holding on to her dream. Encouraged, Haruka says she will do her best and he rewards her with a charm to help protect her dream. After sharing introductions Kanata takes off, and with that, young Haruka decides to continue to strive to become a princess.

In the present, Haruka's parents are taking her to Noble Academy, a boarding school that she wanted to attend. With growing excitement she marvels over the size of the school and quickly locates her dorm room. She practices her curtsy in the mirror when her roommate, Nanase Yui, arrives- embarrassing Haruka. They introduced themselves before taking a tour of the dorm, learning the lesson room, and the school's main greeting, "gokigenyou." Along the way, she sees student council president, Kaido Minami, passing through the hall. Minami also passes by another new student, Amanogawa Kirara, who is looking for her room.

Haruka and Yui then head outside and discuss the history of the school, with Yui admitting her dream to become a picture book author and asking Haruka what her dream is. She is about to announce her dream of becoming a princess when she once again becomes embarrassed and runs off after distracting Yui. Haruka runs into the forest and stops, taking out the charm she received from Kanata. As she puts forth doubt over her dream, a light pink dog pops out of the bushes and trips on one of her ears. Haruka is horrified when the dog begins to talk, then out of nowhere, a small purple bird carrying a chest swoops down from the sky and started to attack her. The agitated bird says that he and his sister are royal fairies from the Hope Kingdom.

In the distance, Close is seen on a rooftop and he overhears them.

As Haruka calms down, she fixes the puppy fairy's ears and the bird introduces them as Aroma and Pafu, and brings up the Hope Kingdom, their homeland, and how it is in danger. Just as Aroma is about to speak, the sky and forest darken and the flowers around them wither, and Close appears, not wanting them to revive the legendary Princess Pretty Cure, which intrigues Haruka.

It's then Yui manages to catch up to her and Close decides to target her dream. He uses his powers to lock Yui's dream of being a picture book author and creates a Picture Book Zetsuborg, ordering it to attack the group. The trio run away until Haruka realize that Yui is locked inside a cage as a result of her dream being taken, and in this distraction Aroma drops the chest he was carrying, revealing a Princess Perfume. Haruka eyes it curiously noticing a keyhole and she asks why Close did this to Yui. He comments on the worthlessness of dreams and Haruka, quickly taking offense in this and brings up her own dream of becoming a Princess. She reaches for the charm in her pocket and proudly states it before noticing the charm begin to glow and change into a key.

Noticing this Close demands she hands it over, but Haruka refuses and Aroma instructs her on how to use it. She is hesitant at first so the fairies attempt to hold Close away from her- with him easily pushing them aside. In this moment Haruka gains enough confidence to protect Yui's dream and goes to fight it. Using the Princess Perfume and Dress Up Key she transforms into Cure Flora, the princess of flowers. As she transformed, the flowers around them were restored and the sky became light again.

Surprised, Cure Flora takes a moment to observe herself as Aroma tells her she has to fight. She is shown not knowing much at first but is able to push the Zetsuborg back and overpower it before changing into her Mode Elegant and using Floral Tourbillon to purify it. Close then teleports away as she uses the Dress Up Key to unlock the cage Yui was restricted within, freeing her dreams. Aroma then continued to explain what they were doing, in that they have to locate the legendary Pretty Cure to help defend Hope Kingdom and were representatives of Prince Kanata.

Flora recognizes this name and is surprised to find out that this is the same boy who gave her the Dress Up Key years back as Aroma shows her a projection.
