"She's Born! The Perfect Smile, Cure Happy!!" (誕生!笑顔まんてんキュアハッピー‼ Tanjō! Egao Manten Kyua Happī!!?) is the 1st episode of Smile Pretty Cure!, and also the 390th episode of the Pretty Cure franchise overall. This episode focuses Hoshizora Miyuki transforming into Cure Happy. The English title from Glitter Force is "An Exciting Beginning".


While running late for her first day at a new school, Miyuki happens to come across a strange creature. After adjusting to school, Miyuki learns more about Candy and promises to protect her and the world.


Hoshizora Miyuki is late for the first day attending her new school, having just transferred from another town. She introduces herself while running, and remarks that she likes picture books and fairy tales. She still takes the time to look around and thinks that something happy might just happen. As she scoots around a corner she sees nothing at first, but then hears something suddenly cry out. As she starts to look around, a pink book flaps down and opens to a picture of Candy, who becomes real and pops out of the book.


Miyuki hugging Candy

The mascot hits Miyuki in the face, causing both of them to fall back. When Miyuki gets a good look, she picks up Candy and hugs the mascot while saying she's cute. Miyuki starts asking Candy questions about what and who she is. Candy then jumps back to introduce herself while Miyuki thinks this is fate. Candy then runs off, leaving the book behind. After picking it up, Miyuki remembers that she is late for school and runs to class.

Miyuki gets to school and is trying to introduce herself to the class, but she is really nervous and does a very small, un-informative introduction. Its then Hino Akane gets up out of her seat and says she'll do the introduction, saying that Miyuki seems friendly but out of it and has a younger brother who likes to look at the stars and says his name is Mitaro. Akane then attempts to keep telling jokes but is then interrupted by Midorikawa Nao and Aoki Reika who say that Miyuki should do her own introduction. Akane then proceeds to introduce Miyuki to Nao, Reika, and then herself.


Akane talking to Miyuki

Kise Yayoi then chimes in, then apologizes by saying that Akane only did that to break the ice. Akane on the way back to her seat then introduces Yayoi and calls her a crybaby, though Yayoi claims she has only cried three times so far. Since she is a lot less nervous now, Miyuki redoes her introduction and does a better job of it this time. She also says that it is nice to meet the class and that she loves happy things and looks for Happiness everyday. The teacher and Akane remark that Miyuki's seat is right behind her and Miyuki sits down. Shortly after she notices Candy hopping about but when she tries to tell Akane, she looks to see nobody is there which ends up distrupting class...

Later after class Miyuki starts looking for Candy again by exploring the school. First she looks in the music room and then the science lab and finally the library. While looking at the books, she spots a shelf with a glowing book titled "The Magical Door" and pulls out the book before noticing a light behind it. She then shoves some books aside, and it seems to start working something like a combination lock. This continues as she notices several other lights on the shelf that work the same way until a portal opens and pulls Miyuki in. She then finds herself in the Magical Library. Candy is still searching but runs into Wolfrun and has to run away. Inside the magical library, Miyuki puts Candy's book on the shelf and then pulls it off to see Candy running from a crack in one of the books. Trying to get to Candy, she drops the book and manages to operate the same combination that pulls her through the portal and back to the human world, outside of a bookstore near Candy.

Miyuki then manages to follow Candy and catches the mascot as she falls off a lightpost. Candy who is freaked out from Wolfrun tries to run away, again saying that the wolf is coming from the sky. Miyuki doesn't believe Candy at first, but soon sees Wolfrun, who blacks out a book with some ink and creates negative energy from sad people which he absorbs into a book. Wolfrun and Candy explain about the bad end scenario and then Candy says everything will be happy if you work for it.


Cure Happy holding Candy

Miyuki says that Candy is right. She then remembers how her day was earlier and wants to protect Candy. Miyuki's power then triggers,and with Candy's help, she transforms into Cure Happy. At first Miyuki is really scared and she freaks out after transforming. Cure Happy runs away scared and hides behind a wall of a brick house, thinking the wolf wouldn't chase her there. Wolfrun laughs, then turns the house into an Akanbe. When the monster attacks she jumps sky high, but still can't control her powers and gets freaked out more.


Cure Happy preforming Happy Shower

She manages to knock the Akanbe down and lands on it by accident, freaking out again when she sees where she landed. As she again runs away, Candy tells Cure Happy to use "Happy Shower" to purify the monster but nothing comes out. Cure Happy then gets over her fear, and with new found confidence and the determination not to lose to Wolfrun she concentrates really hard, pulls off the attack, and acquires the first piece of Cure Decor. Wolfrun runs away and everyone goes back to normal. Candy then asks Miyuki to help save her world to which Miyuki agrees.

Major Events





Secondary Characters


  • This is the third time that the series mascot falls from the sky and hits the lead Cure in the face.
  • This is the third time that after transforming the lead Cure freaks out and can't use her powers right for a minute.
  • During the scene where Miyuki introduces herself to the class, Akane cracks a joke on Miyuki's family name by making up a little brother for Miyuki and calling him Hoshizora Mitaro. Hoshizora stands for "starry sky", mita means "to see (past tense)", and tarou is a common ending particle for male names. The joke was that the brother's name would mean "I saw the starry sky".
  • The first pink glowing book that caught Miyuki's attention in the library was aptly titled Fushigi na Tobira (ふしぎなとびら "Magical Door" or "Mysterious Door"?).

Edits in Glitter Force

  • An extra scene in the beginning is added, which features Emily dreaming of transforming into the Glitter Force with the rest of her friends.
  • The entire scene of Candy running through the school is replaced with Emily randomly heading into the Library and being distracted by the lights, bringing her into the Magical Library.
    • The backstory behind the series is told here.
  • Kelsey exaggerates Lily more than how Akane introduces Yayoi. Kelsey says almost anything makes Lily cry. Lily defends by saying she never cries, maybe once, three times at the very most. In the Japanese version, Akane says Yayoi cries at the slightest nudge, then Yayoi tells Akane not to talk about her like that since she only cried three times today.
  • Full Bloom*Smile's dance ending (ver. Cure Happy) is used for the ending song. This continues for the rest of the following episodes.
  • During parts of the opening, and parts of Emily's transformation and attack sequences, the screen is darkened heavily, possibly to reduce the risk of viewers having seizures or any other eye problems from the bright or flashing colors. This continues for the rest of the following episodes.
