Milk (ミルク Miruku?) is a white-and-pink lop rabbit who debuted in Yes! Pretty Cure 5. She ends her sentences with -miru. Unlike Coco and Natts she was unable to transform into a human. She takes her role as caretaker seriously, along with most other things. Most of the time, she is seen nagging with Nozomi because of the latter's goofy attitude. However, Milk learns to have faith in Pretty Cure, and has a strong urge to help them whenever they are struggling.
In the events of Yes! Pretty Cure 5 GoGo!, she obtains the ability to turn into a human and the power of the Blue Rose after picking up a glowing blue seed and growing it. Her human alias is Mimino Kurumi (美々野 くるみ Mimino Kurumi?) and her Cure alter ego is Milky Rose (ミルキィローズ Miruki Rōzu?). Despite showing herself as Kurumi at first, it is evident that her personality has not changed, as stated by Natts.
Yes! Pretty Cure 5
Milk is first seen walking trough the alley dragging a small wheeled suitcase while Nozomi runs past on her way to catch the bus to school.YPC521 Milk comments to herself that she has found another sucker and wanders out into Nozomi's path and pretends to be a stuffed animal which Nozomi picks up. Nozomi comments that she thinks it is cute and briefly looks around to see who might of dropped it but then Rin yells that she is about to miss the bus to school so she puts Milk in her bag and runs to catch it. Milk can be seen inside Nozomi's bag eating her lunch which makes Nozomi mad when Milk is finally discovered at Natts' store later in the episode. Milk introduces herself and reveals that Coco and Natts are princes which surprises the girls somewhat and even though Milk is told that the girls are Pretty Cure she does not think that they are taking good care them.
Yes! Pretty Cure 5 GoGo!
After the battle against the Nightmare, Milk resumes her duties as a caretaker to both the new kings of the Palmier Kingdom. But when the kingdom got attacked by Eternal, both Coco and Natts were again needed to the human world to support the Cures, leaving her behind. In the events of episode 7, she picked up a glowing blue seed which believed to be the Blue Rose of Miracles and grew it, giving her powers of the Blue Rose and the ability to turn into a human, as well as a Pretty Cure.
In both forms, she acts the same. She is a strict, no-nonsense type when it comes to Coco and Natts. She tries her best to watch over them and make sure they don't make any foolish decisions, and whenever she can't be there to help them she tends to feel useless and worried. She is unable to tolerate anyone who shows rudeness to either of the two. She treats Coco and Natts like an adult, and while caring for them, she may lecture or scold them if they do something foolish.
However, Milk is also a lot like Nozomi. She can be childish most of the time and only cause problems for others, even if it isn't her intention. She is also somewhat greedy and spoiled at first, and came off as uncaring for anyone who wasn't Coco or Natts. But over time she learned to trust the Cures and befriended them. In her human form, Milk is very mature, scolds Nozomi for her childishness and is also very selfless.
Milk is a pale pink lop rabbit with slightly darker pink tuft of hair and coloring on her ears. Her eyes are mauve, and on top of her head is a light red bow to match the ribbon around her neck, held with a gold medallion.
As Kurumi, she has shoulder length wavy purple hair with her bangs pulled back, worn with a rose pink ribbon on the back and a matching ribbon for her bangs. Her casual outfit consists of a white waist length and 3/4 sleeved shirt with a frilly collar, middle and hem. On the bottom left hand corner of her shirt appears to be a large blue rose with two green leaves. She also wears violet legging and red slip on shoes with a tiny wedge.
As Milky Rose, Kurumi's hair turns brighter purple and reaches past her waist with a portion of it held up in equal length pigtails. She gains a pink vine headdress with a tiny blue rose in the middle to match the leafy ornaments holding up her pigtails, accented with small yellow pearls that match her earrings. A pale blue ruffled two-piece outfit. The top resembles a purple corset with a blue rose sewn to the center attached to four pale blue leaf and a single yellow pearl, with the sleeves in three pale blue leafy layers. The skirt is plain, but the hem is purple with a matching ruffled section of material sewn around it. Included are pale blue and purple boots with ruffled cuff and bow on the back, amethyst shorts, and white sleeves accented with purple and pale blue material on the lower portion, along with a single blue flower accented with a single yellow pearl.
Coco and Natts: At the beginning, Milk only shows deep respect toward her fellow mascots and princes, Coco and Natts, always using the respectful suffix "-sama" (様?) when saying their names. She may have a crush on Coco, as she has shown affection around him, and is jealous when Nozomi shows attention to him. However, this may just be a great admiration that has developed through her service in the past.
Yumehara Nozomi: Milk and Nozomi are always in constant disagreements over food, especially chocolate. Milk criticizes Nozomi often because she does not think Nozomi is capable to be neither a leader or a good caretaker for her princes and does that because she is jealous of Nozomi giving attention to Coco and Coco gives back and criticizes her ever since. However, they begin a friendship later on and work together as Cures.
Minazuki Karen: Milk also shares a close friendship with Karen, which resembles that of Nozomi and Coco, Komachi and Natts, and Urara and Syrup. They became close after Karen sacrificed herself for Milk in a battleYPC534.
"The blue rose is my secret emblem! Milky Rose!"
Aoi bara wa himitsu no shirushi! Miruki Rōzu!
Milky Rose (ミルキィローズ Miruki Rōzu?) is an ally of the Pretty Cure who appeared in the episode 10 of Yes! Pretty Cure 5 GoGo!. She has long, violet, curly hair, fuchsia eyes and wears violet with blue rose decorations. She is significantly stronger than the Cures, being able to defeat her foes with ease. However, she has to be careful using these powers, or else she could de-transform back to her mascot form.
In order to transform into Milky Rose, Milk must be in her human form Kurumi and have her Milky Palette at hand. To transform she calls out "Skyrose Translate!". The first time she aided the Cures, Milky Rose did not reveal who she really was and ran off, making all the Cures wondering if she was really on their side. Her powers are related to winds and blizzards.
Milky Rose's signature attack is Blizzard. When Natts was granted his Palmier crown, Milky Rose could use the Milky Note and the Milky Mirror to perform Metal Blizzard. In the final episode, she can use Floral Explosion together with the other 5 Cures.
Rainbow Milky RoseRainbow Milky Rose (レインボーミルキィローズ Reinbō Miruki Rōzu?) is an upgrade Milky Rose gains in Pretty Cure All Stars DX 2: Kibou no Hikari - Rainbow Jewel o Mamore!. Together with the others' upgrades, the group of seventeen girls form the group Cure Rainbow. This upgraded outfit resembles Milky Rose's ordinary outfit, except for a longer skirt and cloth covering her shoulders, along with a pair of small golden wings.
Skyrose Translate! - "Skyrose Translate!" is the official transformation phrase used by Kurumi to transform into Milky Rose.
A large rose first blooms and turns into the Milky Palette, which Kurumi grabs with her left hand. Using the Palette Pen, she taps on the leftmost white screen, then the three buttons on the Palette's bottom row in sequence. This causes the rightmost white screen to shine. Kurumi then crosses her arms and shouts, "Skyrose Translate!", causing her body to shine with light and blue roses to bloom at her feet. All the blue roses explode in a storm of petals, and Kurumi is seen in their mist, her body shining in purple light. She crosses her arms in front of her chest, and petals surround them to form her arm protectors. She spins around as the petals come to form her skirt, then her shoes. Last, the petals form her top, and the two ribbons in her hair explode in petals, which then forms her rose tiara as her hair lengthens. Finally, Milky Rose opens her eyes and recites her introductory speech.
Blizzard - Milky Rose puts together the pen on the Milky Palette and presses on all the buttons to activate the powers. After saying the incantation, she points at the enemy with the device and a giant blue rose appears before her, pointing the same way. After swinging the Milky Palette, the gesture makes the rose separate into numerous petals attacking the enemy. The latter is then surrounded by the petals, which together forms an even greater blue rose afterward. The blue rose then explodes.
Metal Blizzard - Natts calls the power for Milky Rose, the Milky Note appears, pressing together the buttons resembling a red and blue rose each. The Milky Note then sends out a blue rose to Milky Rose's Milky Palette. When the rose touches the Milky Palette, they fuse together and become the Milky Mirror. Milky Rose then repeats the same way she uses Blizzard, except the Blue Rose now has a more metallic appearance, being gray and reflecting.
Milk (ミルク?): A type of teatime beverage, much like Coco(a), Natts (nuts) and Syrup. Also, when combined with coconut(s), makes "coconut milk".
Mimino Kurumi (美々野 くるみ?) : This entire name is a pun. When written backwards, it spells out miruku no mimi (ミルク の 耳?), which translates to "Milk's ears". Her surname is written out using common kanji to make it more convincing. Mi (美?) translates to "beauty", mi (々?) has no specific pronunciation and is only used to indicate that the syllable that came before it is repeated, and no (野?) means "plain" or "field". Kurumi (くるみ?) is a common Japanese girl's name and can mean "walnut".
Milky Rose: A name that is also inspired from Milk's name, as well as the second season's second theme, the rose, particularly the blue rose, which is the reason Milk can transform at all.
