Tsubomi and Erika befriend the legendary delinquent boss, Ban Kenji and learn there is a lot more to him than anyone thinks.


Ban Kenji purposely slams the door, causing everyone to laugh until he glares. Very frantic, everyone panic except for a clueless Tsubomi. Seeing this, a shocked Erika informs her that he is a "legendary delinquent", and a scary leader.

Curious to learn more they pay his mother a visit while Ban sneaks past his mother and hides into the bushes into Erika spots him. He panics by this and incidentally startles Erika when he makes his usualy response with his left eye. Frightened the girls run away from him until Tsubomi trips on the stairs, causing them to stop and help her.

After snapping out of their daze, Kenji reveals the truth he was trying to keep secret: He makes shoujo manga staring Pretty Cure. This surprises the girls, and he explains that Cure Blossom plays the role of a love cupid while Marine accidentally fell in love with him. But he hasn't finished the manga yet, so the girls offer to lend him a hand.

At his house, Kenji tutors the girls how to draw the manga, but his
