Miyuki and Akane watching Yayoi draw

Yayoi, a girl from Miyuki and Akane's class, is a crybaby and a weakling. However, she loves manga and anime, and is really good at drawing.

One day, Miyuki and Akane were having lunch on the rooftop, when they spot Yayoi sitting alone. Creeping up on her, they notice that she was drawing a manga scene of superheroes. Miyuki and Akane praised Yayoi's drawing and said that she should show it off to the rest of the class, but Yayoi asks them not to say anything and ran away.

In class, Reika was telling everyone about a poster competition the school was organizing, and requests for volunteers to take part. Nobody came forward, and Miyuki, remembering Yayoi's talent for drawing, nominated Yayoi to be their class representative. Yayoi was afraid at first, pointing out how the representatives of other classes were better than her. However, Miyuki told her to just try her best, and Yayoi admits that she really wanted to try this out too. Thus, Yayoi started working on the poster. Miyuki and Akane also happily volunteered to help her out by modelling and providing refreshments.

A few days later, the results of the competition were announced. Yayoi was a little disappointed that she had only been awarded the "Good Effort Award", and when students from the winning class jeered at her, she tore her poster from the board and ran away with it.

Sitting outside on the steps, Yayoi was feeling depressed about her lack of talent when Akaoni appeared. Calling her a "weakling" and feeding off her sadness, Akaoni created a Bad End alternate reality and plunged everyone into sorrow. Miyuki and Akane appear when Akaoni creates an Akanbe to fight them.

The girls transform into Pretty Cure, but the Akanbe was strong and they had a hard time fighting it. Frustrated, the Cures perform their finishing moves on the Akanbe, but as they did not have enough fighting spirit, the Akanbe could not be purified. Angry at Akaoni for insulting Yayoi, Happy shouted that she would never forgive him. Hearing this woke Yayoi up, and the Cures did their best to protect her from the Akanbe. However, they were easily defeated. Feeling afraid, Yayoi almost ran away, but in the end, she plucked up her courage and ran to protect her friends.


Peace running from an Akanbe

Yayoi's strong wish to protect her friends gained her the Smile Pact, and she transformed into Cure Peace. Although excited at becoming a real-life superhero, Peace was still a timid girl inside, and ran away from the frightening Akanbe instead of fighting it.

In her terror, she unknowingly released a bolt of lightning which struck the Akanbe and stopped it in its tracks. Candy explained that Peace has the power of lightning, and taught her to use her finishing move.

Charging up her Smile Pact, Peace performed her move Peace Thunder, successfully purifying the Akanbe and gaining a Cure Decor piece.

Peace preforming Peace Thunder

After the battle, Yayoi admitted that although she lost the competition, she learned that friends will always be there for her. Shyly, she asked if she could call Miyuki "Miyuki-chan" instead of the formal term "Hoshizora-san", and Miyuki happily agreed. Still a crybaby, Yayoi started to cry out of happiness.

Major Events

  • Akaoni makes his first attack for the Bad End Kingdom.

Secondary Characters


Edits in Glitter Force

  • When Cure Peace runs away, Candy says the Pretty Cure are legendary warriors. Cure Peace says "Even if you tell me that, I'm scared." In Glitter Force, Candy tells Lily the Glitter Force would never run away, but Lily couldn't help it saying the Buffoon is scary.
  • At the end of the episode, Yayoi asks Miyuki if she can call her "Miyuki-chan" instead of "Hoshizora-san." In Glitter Force, Lily asks Emily if she can be her friend. This is because characters in Glitter Force aren't given last names.
