Who Is The Pretty Cure of Effervescence? (はじけるプリキュアは誰? Hajikeru Purikyua wa Dare??) is the 3rd episode of the season Yes! Pretty Cure 5, and also the 148th episode of the Pretty Cure franchise overall. This episode focuses on Kasugano Urara becoming a Pretty Cure.


Nozomi and Rin meet up with Urara after she catches the girls in their Pretty Cure forms. Nozomi decides to skip class to spend extra time with Urara.


Urara is in the middle of auditioning for a group of people who begin to ask her how she likes school. Urara takes a moment to think it over and unhappy with the answer, she is quick to lie and claim how fun she thinks school is.

After school, Coco discusses what the girls' Pretty Cure forms represent. This being hope and passion. He goes on to bring up that the remaining three: intelligence, tranquility, and effervescence. Rin interrupts to point out they understand what intelligence and tranquility mean, but they are unable to figure out what effervescence is.

At home, Nozomi feeds Coco a snack but they are interrupted. She quickly hides Coco to find her dad, but she was unable to see him as he was sleeping. Her dad decides to start dinner, which surprises Nozomi until he explains that her mother is too busy working at the time, and that she'll be late. Nozomi lectures him for staying up all night and her dad picks Coco up, so she claims he is a stuffed animal and she distracts him by mentioning the girl on the television screen is a girl she knows from school.

In Nightmare HQ, Bunbee was upset at Girinma, coming back twice without results or the Dream Collet. Girinma apologized and said that there were two Cures. Bunbee is still unimpressed and reminded him that their duty is to bring to Dream Collet for Desperaia to grant her wish. He then snapped his fingers, causing Girinma to fall into a trap hole. Bunbee then ordered Gamao to get the Dream Collet.

At school, Nozomi and Rin continue to discuss what Effervescence is. Rin scolds her for just openly discussing Pretty Cure and when the surrounding girls catch them, due to being so loud they quickly lie and claim to be discussing pudding. It happens a second time, but not a third as Nozomi happens to see Urara nearby and approaches her in order to mention how cute she thought she was on the television the other day. She and Rin sit down and Nozomi introduces Rin to Urara. As the duo start to bicker, Urara quickly realizes she saw them yesterday, fighting the bad guy.

Before she can ask Nozomi or Rin any questions, a worker approaches to speak to her. When she walks away, she openly asks what Pretty Cure is. But the bell rings before she can get an answer and they run off. This makes Urara feel sad, but she notices Nozomi left behind her pack, then turns to find her there standing. She suggests they should head to class but Nozomi offers to show Urara around instead, since she's new to the school.

Meanwhile in class, Rin tries to be "subtle" and inform Coco that Nozomi hasn't come back from their lunch break and her concern. Which causes Coco to become annoyed and he leaves after telling the girls to read for a while. Rin then makes an excuse to leave as well and takes off after him.

Nozomi and Urara have fun looking around the school grounds. Laughing and enjoying lovely sights, such as the flowers. They end their fun in the auditorium, where Urara reveals her dream of being on stage. Nozomi is impressed, but tells Urara that her dreams are still far off. But Urara feels like she can agree with this because so far, she's only had a single line as a support character role, the one coming up. Curiously Nozomi asks her if this is true, if she spent all of lunch practicing that one single line. Urara tells her that she reads from the script and then goes straight home due to having to work. She doesn't have time to make friends but she doesn't have that much choice if she wants to make her dream come true. So it's best to be by herself.

However, Nozomi doesn't believe this and she tells Urara that they are friends. Which makes both of them happy. Then she reveals her Pinky Catch to Urara. She explains what they use it for and explains the Nightmares to her and that they have been destroying a country that she plans on restoring. This is why she becomes a Pretty Cure, and she asks Urara not to tell Rin because she would be angry.

Just then, Rin and Coco run in demanding to know where Nozomi was. Rin calls it bad manners and continues to yell at her while Nozomi tries to explain. But before she can tell her what happened, they find a strange man demanding the Dream Collet. Nozomi tells Urara to run, but the main uses this time to transform the stage curtains into a Kowaina. He again demands the Dream Collet and once again Nozomi tells her to run. Coco grabs her and they run while Nozomi and Rin transform into Cure Dream and Cure Rouge.

With that, a fight begins. Students inside seem to be aware of what's going on, and while Karen wants to go and see, Komachi insists they don't due to being in the middle of class. Coco tries to get Urara to leave the auditorium with him and suddenly runs in the way to take a hit from one of the Nightmares. Everyone keeps telling her to run and while she doesn't listen, she is forced to leave anyway after Rin yells at her. The Nightmare keeps trying to get Nozomi to hand over the Dream Collet but they refuse.

As Urara runs away she tries to find someone to tell. But she falls over and hears noise coming from the room again. She wants to go back, but is too frightened until she remembers what Nozomi told her earlier. With that, Urara gets up and makes her way back to the Auditorium.

Just as the nightmare attempts to attack Coco, Urara runs back into the room, stopping him. But suddenly, to everyone's surprise a glowing yellow butterfly appears and floats onto her hand, transforming into a pinky catch.

With that Urara quickly transforms into Cure Lemonade. She is very surprised to see herself, but she doesn't have very long to question it and quickly attacks, allowing Dream and Rouge to release themselves and attack. With the Kowaina gone, Gamao takes his leave.

Outside, the trio congratulate Urara and Coco introduces himself to her, only to inform the girls now that they have detention for skipping out on class. This makes him and Nozomi bicker for a moment, but they all express joy in having found the third Pretty Cure.
