Ribbon's Tenderness!! Cooking is Caring!! (リボンの優しさ!!料理って愛情なんです!! Ribon no Yūshisa!! Ryōritte Aijō Nan Desu!!?) is the 6th episode of Happiness Charge Pretty Cure! and also the 492nd episode of the Pretty Cure franchise overall.


Hime demands pancakes to eat, refusing to eat the fish that Ribbon already prepared for her and gets kicked out of their home after they get into a fight.


One day Ribbon is busy preparing lunch for Hime, who is beginning to feel hungry. She removes it from the oven and comments on how well she did, but Hime is disappointed to see that she made fish. Ribbon accuses her of being selfish as she continues to complain and is allowed to pick what she eats. This frustrates Ribbon and she tries to get Hime to be reasonable- which only ends with Hime throwing a tantrum. She doesn't understand why Ribbon can't make something easy, and Ribbon points out that Hime can't even crack an egg, so she has no right to call it easy. At this point they are both angry.

Later on, Megumi arrives just in time to see Hime leaving the home. She doesn't understand and stays behind to speak to Ribbon while trying the food. She really likes it and feels bad that Hime wont try it. However, Ribbon is still angry and doesn't care, saying that she needs to learn a lesson for being so selfish.

Outside, Hime is walking around in a slump, while Seiji and Yuko are both outside running. They happen to spot each other and stop for a chat when they see her. Hime runs straight into Yuko's arms and begs for candy, but she doesn't have any right now. Seiji asks Hime what the problem is, but she hostily responds and Yuko is able to deduce that she's hungry. So she drags her back to her place.

It's getting late and Megumi thinks they should go out to look for Hime now. But Ribbon stubbornly refuses to help, only to be interupted by a call from Seiji. He informs her that they saw Hime and tells them that Yuko took her back to her place.

There, Hime has finished eating. Yuko brings her a drink and is glad to see that Hime really liked it. But she is sure that someone back at Hime's place feels sad now and thinks that Hime should return. She explains Ribbon's feeling to her, which seems to make Hime think about how selfish she was until recalling that Ribbon ignored her feelings anyway. It's then Yuko asks Hime if she ever helped Ribbon make a meal before. Of course Hime hasn't, since it isn't her job. Yuko then asks Hime if she would be able to help her with the work today at the shop because it's a busy, special event. Hime is excited and feels that she should repay Yuko, so she agrees.

Megumi continues to talk with Seiji about the turn of events and she claims that they should hurry up to fix the problem. But Seiji thinks she is being too forward and forceful again and believes she should think some more about their feelings. Megumi asks Ribbon to come find Hime again, but she refuses until Blue is able to convince her to do it.

At the playground, Namakelder was in the middle of napping until the pleasent smell of happiness woke him up. He claims his nap to be ruined and decides to make them pay for it.

Hime changes into a chef to help Yuko and her family out. They get started and she watches carefully, finding it all to be pretty cool. Yuko is surprise to see that she changed her clothing and the two of them get to work preparing potato. Hime is disappointed by this, but Yuko explains how important the prep work is. The kitchen work is only the finishing details and they will be peeling potato all day, due to how popular their croquette is. Yuko's dad brings in more potato and Yuko explains how much fun cooking is, and how she wants everyone who eats their food to be happy. She believes that anyone who cooks feels the same way, and also thinks that the one who cooks for Hime probably feels the same way. Hime claims it to be untrue though, and says that Ribbon doesn't understand her. But Yuko doesn't think this at all. She thinks Ribbon works so hard because of Hime. She then gets up to take the potato to the kitchen.

Hime continues to think this over while peeling the potato. She also thinks about the special times they had previously and begins to realize that she may have been wrong after all. Yuko returns with a reward for Hime then, seeing how well she was able to peel the potato. One of their special, freshly fried make-up Croquette. Hime enjoys the croquette and Yuko suggests that she take some back to Ribbon.

It's suddenly that Megumi and Ribbon show up. She wants them to make up, and when she mentions that Ribbon will forgive Hime, Hime angrily claims it wasn't her fault again. It's then the hear yelling outside in the shopping district and they spot Namakelder. He tells the Saiark to ruin the shop, while Yuko stands to protect it. Seeing that Yuko is in danger, they transform into Cure Princess and Cure Lovely.

Before Namakelder can attack the store, Lovely and Princess show up to defeat the Saiark. They begin to fight while promising to protect it and they tell Yuko to run off. As they Choiarks show up, the girls attack them, nearly crushed by the Saiark. Namakelder tells it to forget about the cures and attack the shop, but they wont let it by using their barriers and shields, with even Ribbon helping out.

While they hold up the shields, they ask him why he even wants to ruin the shop anyway. Namakelder explains that it's because it's a waste of time to cook for others, but Princess is quick to call him out on this. At first she felt the same way and didn't even think about how the ones that cook the food work so hard to make others happy. She was being selfish and didn't even think about Ribbon at all.

With that they are able to send the Saiark backwards and Ribbon gives Hime her Macadamia Hula Dance cards to use. Hime changes and uses Pretty Cure Hawaiian Alohahoe. But instead of it just working on the Choiarks, it works on everyone. She snaps Lovely out of it, and she is able to use Pinky Love Shoot in order to defeat the Saiark. The mold vanishes from the area and Namakelder takes off.

The girls turn back to normal and see how many customers showed up at the shop. Hime apologizes to Ribbon for how badly she behaved and she gives Ribbon a Croquette. Ribbon compliments it while Megumi expresses joy that they made up. Ribbon then makes two new cards appear and they put them away, and Hime points out they should head home since she's still hungry. She requests pancakes and Ribbon asks if she's still being selfish and reminds her of how unhealthy they are. They begin to bicker and Megumi claims that people who care a lot for each other tend to argue, so this must be what it means.
