The Second Cure is Full of Motivation! (2人目のプリキュアはやる気まんまんです! Futarime no Purikyua wa Yaruki Manman Desu!?) is the 3rd episode for the season Heartcatch Pretty Cure! and also the 295th episode of the Pretty Cure franchise overall. The episode focuses on introducing Kurumi Erika as the second Cure.


Tsubomi attempts to figure out what it means to be a Cure while hesitating to help Erika restore the Fashion Club - who reveals she had the same dream of Cure Moonlight as she had recently.


Cure Blossom finds herself on a hill one evening and thanks the mystery man for saving her. He surprises her by suddenly embracing her, but she comments that he is too forward and pushes him away. She realizes she accidentally pushed Chypre and Coffret and was dreaming, and she starts to blush when they ask what she was doing.

At her bedroom window she meets with Erika, who greets her before Tsubomi realizes how late it is when Erika asks why she isn't changed yet. On their way to school, Erika expresses her happiness when pointing out that Tsubomi followed her advice about taking off her glasses and changing her hairstyle. Tsubomi admits that she thinks that if she changes her outer look, her personality might change, as well, which Erika agrees on. The school clock rings, but when Tsubomi calls Erika "Erika-san", she tells her to stop using "-san", or else Tsubomi will have to buy her milk.


Coffret asks Erika to become his partner.

At lunch, Erika takes Tsubomi to the roof, saying how nice the view is. As they eat, she mentions the dream she had about Cure Moonlight, and suddenly, Chypre and Coffret jump out from Tsubomi's lunch box and claim this to be a sign. This shocks Erika and alarms Tsubomi as they go on to say she's a Cure. Tsubomi explains everything to Erika, saying that her dreams about Pretty Cure were all real, and that she is Cure Blossom, further surprising her.

Erika thinks back to Cure Blossom's cute outfit, but before she can give an answer on wether or not to become a Cure, the student council president Myoudouin Itsuki appears, asking her where the member list for the fashion club is. He is unable to allocate clubs without it, and he takes off as Tsubomi blushes. She comments on how cool Itsuki is, and Erika states that he is the grandchild of the schoolchairman. Chypre and Coffret return from hiding and ask Erika about becoming a Pretty Cure again. While she likes the idea she declines, saying she is without time to do it. She takes off afterwards and thanks Tsubomi for her help. Unsure of what to do now, the fairies go to Cure Flower for advice.

Meanwhile at the Desert Apostles' head quarter, Sasorina reports the news of the new Pretty Cure after Cure Moonlight's defeat. Sabaku states that it will be a bother if she continues to collect Heart Seeds, but Sasorina claims that since Tsubomi became Cure Blossom just recently, she will be easily defeated. Then she takes off.

Back at school, Tsubomi and Erika, now with banners promoting the fashion club, visit a first-year classroom to ask them to join, but nobody is interested. However, Erika notices a girl looking out at the window. She asks her

if she wants to join the club, but the girl Ueshima Sayaka, states that she does not want to join such a weak club. Seeing Erika getting angry, Tsubomi takes her away before a fight starts.

At the end of the day, Erika is depressed that they did not recruit any new members when they hear Sayaka asking the soccer coach to join but he refuses as girls cannot join this club. Erika tries to recruit her again, saying that soccer is stupid, but Saya tells her to insult the club before running away in tears.

Under a bridge, Sayaka asks herself why they can't let girls play soccer. She decides to train with the ball while Sasorina watches her from nearby and notices her wilting Heart Flower. Sayaka sees some elementary students play soccer, and she is reminded of when both genders could play soccer, back when she was younger and genders didn't mean much. She kicks the ball a final time, when Sasorina suddenly grabs it and steals her Heart Flower.

Chypre and Coffret happen to see this and quick grab the crystal while a Desertrian appears.

Erika about to transform.

They rush back to inform Tsubomi of the news and they ask Erika once more to become a Pretty Cure. But before she can give them another answer, they see the Desertrian threatening elementary students - asking them why girls can't play soccer in high school. Seeing the chaos, Tsubomi transforms into Cure Blossom in front of Erika, who admires how cool she looks. Cure Blossom tries to fight the Desertrian, but is fairing poorly. As Erika sees how dedicated Blossom is to try to protect everyone's hearts, she decides to do it.

She is given the second Heart Perfume by Coffret, and transforms, making herself Cure Marine. They are surprised that she didn't need any instructions though, causing Marine to explain that she thought about the name since the secret was revealed at lunch.

They watch as Cure Marine proves to be a capable fighter, compared to Blossom. She quickly purifies the Desertrian,

which causes a furious Sasorina to attempt to attack her. But when Blossom comes to Marine's side, she refuses to fight the both of them and storms off.

They put the Heart Flower back to the body crystal, and Sayaka wakes up wondering what happened. Tsubomi claims that she fell asleep while training and Sayaka apologizes for her insults earlier. She then decides that she'd like to start a soccer club for females, and happily runs toward the sunset while Tsubomi explains the red pionsettia's meaning to Erika.

On their way home, Erika gives Tsubomi back the doll from yesterday, now all repaired, but a little girl and her mother come by, causing the little girl to recognize the doll as her own. Tsubomi explains that Erika fixed it up for her a few days ago, so they give it back to the little girl and she thanks Erika. Doing this has given Erika a happy feeling, and the girls vow to do their best to protect people's Heart Flowers and save the fashion club.

Major Events





Secondary Characters


  • Erika tells Tsubomi that if she ever uses the suffix "-san" while referring to her again, she has to buy her milk. This is probably a reference to the fact that Erika's surname, Kurumi, is also the given name of Milk's human form, Mimino Kurumi.
