Akane explained that the comedy duo-Fujiwara is coming to town for a skit talk contest and want to see them live. Meanwhile, Majorina who got hold of the same news, created a pair of neck rings for her next scheme. Wolfrun and Akaoni who are clueless decide to enter the same contest too.


Miyuki and Akane excited for the manzai event

Candy nearly blew her cover which the girls tried to hide it. Fujiwara find them amusing and suggested to them to enter the contest. The contest begin and Wolfrun and Akaoni who are in disguise tried to get their act together but the audience were stumped by their performances. Next it was the girls' turn. However Miyuki and Akane were shocked to find their parents among the audiences and got stage fright. The others tried to help but everything went haywire and the audiences think it was part of the act.


The Cures fighting the Akanbe

They returned backstage disappointed but Fujiwara gave them words of encouragement and began their performance. Majorina used the neck rings on the duo who suddenly lost their sense of humor. She then proceed to suck Bad End Energy on the people. The girls realised what was going on and quickly transformed. Majorina then used both red and blue ball to create two Akanbes from two Fujiwara signboards.


Akanbe sits on the Cures

The girls tried their best but were overwhelmed and the Akanbe landed on them. Majorina told them laughter is useless in this world which Fujiwara overheard and broke free from the Bad End Energy. Fujiwara told Majorina that Laughter is the best weapon in the world and the girls were surprised too. Candy (who blow her cover) claimed they could be the next Precure which they tried to transform like the girls.


Akane makes a crazy expression when she sees Fujiwara imitating the Cures on tv
