Cure Mint of Tranquility! (やすらぎのキュアミント! Yasuragi no Kyua Minto!?) is the 4th episode of the season Yes! Pretty Cure 5, and also the 149th episode of Pretty Cure franchise overall. This episode focuses on Akimoto Komachi turning into a Pretty Cure.


Coco alerts Nozomi, Rin, and Urara to quickly find the last two Cures. At the same time, Komachi and Karen, suspicious that the three are causing strange events to happen at school, try to question them. From this, Nozomi is led to believe they would make great Pretty Cure.


In the library, Akimoto Komachi is writing a paper until a student comes to ask to borrow a book. She stamps the book and informs the girl that she can have it for a week. After she takes it and thanks Komachi, another student came up to her saying that the library is haunted and when it gets dark, you can hear someone struggling. The gossip begins to make Komachi start to worry.

The next morning in school, all the students in the halls start to gossip about an evil spirit in the library and a monster in the auditorium, which scared some of them. Komachi is eavesdropping on their conversations and worries even more until Karen greets her and brings up the rumors. She asks Karen if they can talk in private when they see Nozomi, Rin, and Urara talking about breakfast. They walk to class and pass Komachi and Karen, causing Karen to wonder why Urara quickly became friends with Rin and Nozomi, even though they are different.

In Nightmare, Arachnea was summoned by Bunbee to get the Dream Collet. Arachnea said that she had heard the rumors of Girinma and Gamao failing, but Gamao hasn't come back yet. Bunbee is impressed and warns her about Pretty Cure, but she assures him that she can be trusted to get the Dream Collet.

After class everyone begins to head to lunch until Mr. Kokoda asks them to go to the guidance counseling room with Urara so that he could talk to them privately. After everyone gathers, Coco changes into his normal form and explains how important it is that they find the remaining two cures: tranquility and intelligence, in order to release his friend. Suddenly someone knocks on the door and he quickly hides as Komachi and Karen come in to ask questions. They went to the cafeteria to talk to them because of the rumors that had been spreading around the school, and Karen and Komachi heard that they were the only three that were near the disturbances.

Nozomi attempts to say something but Rin stops her. This only makes Karen more suspicious and she asks them for an answer. Komachi tries to calm down everyone by explaining that Karen just wants to know what is going on. Then without thinking it over, Nozomi asks them if they would be interested in joining the Pretty Cure, because she thinks Komachi is good at calming things and Karen is really smart. She thinks they are the perfect candidates, but Karen leaves after claiming it to be made up. Komachi doesn't believe it either but she is happy with the story they made and asks them to be more clear the next time before leaving as well.

Nozomi can't understand why they didn't believe her and Rin claims nobody would believe them before insisting that Karen wouldn't work. But Nozomi still has faith that Karen and Komachi would fit their group and she doesn't have any plans on giving up to recruit them. But suddenly, the bell rings, causing Nozomi and Rin to get depressed since they didn't get to finish their food.

After school, Rin attends to soccer club while Nozomi tries to talk to Komachi about becoming a Pretty Cure in the library. Komachi was busy writing and when Nozomi begins to ask her about it, she stops to explain her dream of becoming a novelist. Meanwhile, Coco finds Urara outside of the meeting room in hopes of speaking to Karen about Pretty Cure. She informs him of where Rin and Nozomi are and Coco transforms back into his cute form after realizing that a Pinky is near. Urara's Pinky Catch comes out and a harp forms that Coco begins to play. Then, a Pinky appears and went into Urara's Catch and they begin to discuss it.

Back in the library, Komachi explains where her novelist dreams have come from. Komachi loved to read books since she was little, but people laughed at her while saying she would never become a novelist and should just give up. Nozomi encourages her to continue her dream though and tells her not to give up so easily. Because if she keeps believing in herself then one day it will come true. Komachi feels happier now and thanks Nozomi, then asks her to tell her some more about Pretty Cure.

Leaving the library, Nozomi explains Pretty Cure and the Nightmares to Komachi and this time she almost believes them. But Karen still refuses. A manhole suddenly pops open and the girls fall into the sewers, landing safely on a mattress. Arachnea appeared on the sewer river and turns into her true form while ordering them to hand over the Dream Collet. Nozomi objects and she and Komachi run away causing Arachnea to chase them.

On the surface, Coco sensed Nightmares and tells Urara. Komachi and Nozomi keep running until they reach a dead end. Arachnea now got them and demands that they hand over the Dream Collet again, but Nozomi refuses and transforms into Cure Dream. This surprises Komachi and Arachnea throws a mask onto the water to turn it into a Kowaina. After she kicks it, Cure Dream and Komachi flee again. 

Urara and Coco find Rin and attempt to find Nozomi, but inside the library they see nobody is there. But they spot the opened manhole and quickly jump inside.

Cure Dream and Komachi continue to try to escape the Kowaina chasing them. They end up in a big room with no trail and as the Kowaina gets closer, Cure Dream has Komachi grab onto her an she umps out of the hole. As Rin, Urara, and Coco find them, they quickly transform into Cure Rouge and Cure Lemonade. Which surprises Komachi even further as she and Coco hide behind some nearby pillars. The Kowaina and Arachnea manage to find them and she ends up angering Komachi when she calls dreams illusions. Komachi confronts her and claims her to be lying, but Arachnea only grabs ahold of her and catches her in her web.

Cure Dream attempts to save her but gets stuck herself. Arachnea goes on to call Komachi weak, as well as saying those with no dreams are powerless. Cure Dream argues against this by informing her of Komachi's writing and how she kept at it, no matter what other people told her. She's working hard to make her dream come true.

With her strength, Cure Dream manages to save herself by pulling out of the web. As the Kowaina attacks the Pretty Cure fight back. Komachi sees how much Cure Dream suffers and begins to feel badly, wanting to support her. She thinks about how Nozomi treated her upon learning of her dreams, so now she wants to help her. A green butterfly suddenly appears and lands onto the web, causing it to break. The butterfly floats onto her wrist and turns into a Pinky Catch, allowing her to transform into Cure Mint.

Cure Mint uses Mint Protection to protect everyone from the Kowaina and allowing the other three to use their own abilities. Allowing them to destroy the Kowaina. Arachnea flees after to report the events of today while Coco cheers for them.

On the surface, Nozomi, Rin and Urara get out of the sewers and find themselves surrounded by students asking what's been going on and wonder why they were underground. Karen pushes her way through to see them, shocked when she finds Komachi with them. She walks up to her and asks what she was doing, but this only makes Komachi giggle while the others laugh, leaving Karen confused.
