Dotabata! The TV Reporter Challenge nya ♪ (ドタバタ! テレビレポーターに挑戦だニャ♪ Dotabata! Terebi Repōtā ni Kyōsen da nya ♪?) is the 5th episode of Suite Pretty Cure♪, and also the 346th episode of the Pretty Cure franchise overall.


Hibiki's mother volunteers Hibiki and Kanade to do a report on the town for Television. Initially the girls refuse until the perks offered to them sway their decision - but they start to clash over their styles of reporting until remembering how fun it is to work together.



Hibiki and Kanade continue to have piano problems.

Battling a Negatone, Cure Melody and Cure Rhythm could not unite, and thus failed to conjure their final attack. In order to boost their Harmony Power, Hummy suggested that Hibiki and Kanade practice piano together. However, Hibiki was still not enthusiastic about music and refused to practise, resulting in a quarrel with Kanade again.

Depressed at home, Hibiki received a call from her mother, who was working overseas. She had volunteered Hibiki and Kanade as reporters for a friend's TV show, which would focus on Kaon Town. Although Hibiki and Kanade thought that they would reject the offer, they were tempted by a buffet and an interview with Ouji respectively, and agreed to become reporters.

On the day of filming, Kanade was nervous about being a reporter, while Hibiki was too relaxed. With their contrasting personalities, their reporting style was totally opposite as well. On one hand, having written a script and memorized it, Kanade explained the town's history, as if giving a lecture.

On the other hand, Hibiki reported on anything and everything she could lay her eyes on. Pointing out each other's faults, "You're too precise", "You're too vague", the two start to bicker again.

Witnessing this scene, Siren and Trio the Minor smiled. Siren then decided to take over the TV camera and use the network to broadcast the Melody of Sadness.


The girls encounter "the princes".

Hibiki started to introduce the busking musicians about town, but soon met an old lady along the way and started to chat about irrelevant things. Just as things were getting out of hand, Kanade stepped in and followed up on Hibiki's report. Next, it was Kanade's turn to report on the Musical Princes. Being too nervous, Kanade could not deliver her report well.

Just then, Hibiki delivered a pinch to Kanade's butt, bringing her back to herself, prompting Kanade to ask Ouji about why he loved playing music. "Why do I love playing music?... Because I managed to meet these precious bandmates whom I can unite with," he told Hibiki and Kanade. He added that Hibiki and Kanade were at that moment united.


Hibiki and Kanade improve with their piano work.

Hibiki and Kanade had finally come together as one. At that point, Siren and Trio the Minor appeared, planning to use TV to broadcast Siren's voice. However, Siren spotted a musical note hiding inside the TV camera, and changed it into a Negatone. Melody and Rhythm had a hard time battling the Negatone, until they remembered how they helped each other during the reporting session. Working in harmony, they rained strong blows upon the Negatone, and subdued it successfully with their final attack.

Knowing that their hearts have become one, Hibiki and Kanade raised their Harmony Power, and began their piano practice.
