Chiharu n yayoi

Yayoi excited for April Fools

On the morning of April Fool's Day, Yayoi was lured out of bed by her mother Chiharu's promise of hotcakes for breakfast. In fact, Chiharu was telling a lie. In return, Yayoi lied that she had gotten a boyfriend, and seeing her mother's shocked expression, Yayoi got excited at the thought of shocking her friends at school as well. Before she left, Chiharu warned Yayoi to be sure to clarify the situation if she decided to play any pranks.


Akaoni drawing a picture

In Bad End Kingdom, Akaoni was also getting into the mood of April Fool's, drawing up a new bad ending in which he defeats Momotarou. Wolfrun commented that since their job was to create bad endings, Akaoni technically was not lying. This got Akaoni confused, and he decided to go out to the human world to steal everyone's happiness through lies.


Miyuki surprised that Yayoi's changing schools

In school, Yayoi first met up with Miyuki and Candy at the shoe lockers. Wanting to surprise her friends, Yayoi came up with a lie about having to transfer to another school. After seeing Miyuki's shocked expression, Yayoi decided to have a little more fun, adding that today was her last day in school. But just when she decides to confess to her lie, she turns to find Miyuki gone.


Akane telling Yayoi not to feel sad

A panicked Miyuki ran to look for Akane, telling her about Yayoi's imminent transfer. Akane insisted that they keep the fact a secret; as the both of them had experiences with school transfers, they felt that Yayoi would have wanted to keep it a secret so as not to make a fuss.

Just then, Yayoi came to confess her lie, but with the two fussing over her, she could not get a word in. In the end, she still could not get her confession out.


Everyone feels bad for Yayoi

After homeroom period, Miyuki and Akane told Reika and Nao about Yayoi's transfer, and the four were devastated. Nao and Reika came to confront Yayoi before music class, asking why she did not tell them about the transfer earlier, but Miyuki and Akane, the two transfer students, came to her defence, saying that it was understandable as Yayoi wanted to spend her last day happily with her good friends. In her mind, Yayoi knew that she had to confess to stop things from getting worse, but she was constantly interrupted by the others and could not say a word.


Everyone telling Yayoi that she'll always be a Pretty Cure

After music class, Yayoi was staring at the mirror in her Smile Pact when the others came to look for her. Mistakenly thinking that Yayoi was worried about leaving the Pretty Cure team, the other girls assured her that they would do their best to cover for her, and told her not to worry.

During lunch break, Yayoi went to the school rooftop alone, drawing a manga picture to help her in apologizing to the rest since she was now too afraid to confess in words. However, her drawing was blown away by the wind before she could show it to the rest.


Everyone angry in Yayoi's imagination

Just then, Miyuki came to fetch Yayoi back to class, where the entire class had prepared a farewell party, organized by Reika, for Yayoi. Panicked that the entire class would be angry should she confess and not want to be her friend anymore, Yayoi started to cry and ended up running out of class.

Just then, Akaoni found Yayoi's drawing, and created a Bad End alternate reality and stole everyone's happiness. The girls transformed into Pretty Cure to fight.


Cure Peace crying

Akaoni created a tennis court roller Akanbe to battle the Cures, and successfully beat them by lying about his next moves. Angered, the Cures demanded a fair fight, stating that they hated liars. Akaoni then teased Peace about being a liar herself, and Peace had no choice but to confess her lie. However, the Cures were relieved at hearing the truth, and were glad that Peace was not going to transfer after all. With renewed determination, Peace easily defeated the Akanbe and purified it with Peace Thunder, earning the pudding Cure Decor piece.

Back in class, Yayoi apologized to the entire class for lying, and everyone was relieved. However, the other girls stated that they did not like Yayoi much anymore because of this incident, causing her to panic, but she was relieved when they confessed that they were lying too, and actually really liked Yayoi.
