Hana Nono (Cure Yell)
Hana Nono (Cure Yell)
Voiced by: Rie HikisakaOur lively Pink Heroine. She is a New Transfer Student who dreams of becoming a stylish and mature big sister figure due to her comparatively short height. Though she is prone to making mistakes, she always sticks by her beliefs and gets back up every time she falls down.
- Bare Your Midriff: Keeping in line with the cheerleader motif, her outfit has this when transformed.
- Chronic Hero Syndrome: The only reason she ended up being late to her first day of class was because she stopped to help an old lady carry her bags after already shielding her from a stray baseball. Her drive to not back down when someone needs help is also what leads her to protect Hugtan and become Cure Yell.
- Expository Hairstyle Change: The first episode has her trying to give herself one before the first day of school, but it doesn't exactly go as well as she'd hoped.
- Genki Girl: On top of being extremely cheerful, she's also the Cure of high spirits/energy. In other words, she's literally the "Cure of Genki".
- Heart Beat-Down: Her main attack, appropriately named "Heart For You", shoots a giant heart that purifies an enemy.
- Height Angst: Is noted to be shorter than most other girls her age, which is why she wants to become a mature big sister figure.
- Meaningful Name: "Hana" can mean "flower", relating to the light flower-theme in her Cure form.
- New Transfer Student: Transfers into a new school at the start, and immediately makes a fool of herself.
- Older Than She Looks: Downplayed compared to more prominent examples, but she is still prone to being mistaken for an elementary school student due to her short height and personality, much to her chagrin.
- Oneesama: What she strives to become. She wants to be a mature older figure for others, although she fails miserably.
- Pink Heroine: Standard for a lead Cure.
- Pom-Pom Girl: Her uniform as a Cure has this motif. The bracelets on her arms can even turn into real pom-poms to use in her finisher or for simply cheering on others.
- Rose-Haired Sweetie: Has magenta/light-pink hair and a very cheerful personality.
Saaya Yakushiji (Cure Ange)
Saaya Yakushiji (Cure Ange)
Voiced by: Rina Hon'izumiThe class representative of Hana's classroom. She is a kind and gentle individual who is often compared by those around her to an angel, but she is also uncertain about what she wants to do for the future.
- Adorkable: To everyone's surprise, she has a hilariously passionate fangirl moment over a display of power tools, of all things, in episode 6.
- Angelic Beauty: Though not an angel herself, her uniform as a Cure has this motif, complete with lots of feathers. Of course, that isn't to say that she doesn't have the "beauty" part nailed down.
- Barrier Warrior: Her main attack, Heart Feather, is used to block enemy attacks.
- Former Child Star: Downplayed, but Saaya was a famous child actor at one point. Though she still attends auditions for acting roles, she's unsure of what she wants to do as she's pressured to be as great as her famous mother.
- Gold and White Are Divine: Though these colors are common accent colors for uniforms in a lot of works, including Precure, and despite not actually being divine, Cure Ange gets bonus points for having them and being angelic in design.
- Heavenly Blue: Is the blue Cure, and has angels as her motif. The majority of the blue in her Cure form is a light shade, as most usages of Heavenly Blue are.
- Luminescent Blush: Is often prone to exhibiting this whenever people compare her to an angel due to her looks or her personality.
- Meaningful Name: Her last name contains "yakushi" (薬師), which is an archaic form of the word "doctor", relating to her status as the healing Cure. Her first name being in hiragana means it can have multiple interpretations, but one possible one is "wise coloring" (慧彩).
- Nice Girl: As expected of the class representative, Saaya is always thinking of others and acts kindly towards everyone. Notably, she is the first person to personally reach out to Hana on her first day of school and even gives her a tour of the school.
- The Smart Girl: She's the Pretty Cure of Wisdom.
- True Blue Femininity: She wears a blue dress in both civilian and Cure forms, fitting her sweet and ladylike personality.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Wouldn't be a blue Cure without it. She has dark blue hair in her civilian form and sky blue hair in her Cure form.
Homare Kagayaki (Cure Étoile)
Homare Kagayaki (Cure Étoile)
Voiced by: Yui OguraAnother girl in Hana’s class. She was once a figure-skating prodigy before she sustained an injury that would prematurely end her career. Though her injury has healed, she has since become colder and more aloof, although she still retains a strong desire to help those in need.
- Adventure Rebuff: She's able to successfully create her Mirai Crystal but when attempting to jump for it for the first time, she triggers a painful memory and misses the jump, causing it to disappear. She is able to successfully claim it in episode 5.
- Ambiguous Disorder: Shows textbook signs of PTSD such as jumping causing her to remember her failed figure skating jump, her sadness, distancing herself others and from figure skating, and a loss of interest in other activities (not going to school that often).
- The Big Guy: She's the Pretty Cure of Strength.
- Bilingual Bonus: Her alias is French for "star".
- Broken Bird: Is troubled at the start of the series due to having failed a figure skating jump at one point, badly injuring her leg and destroying her dreams.
- Dance Battler: Being a former figure skater, her fighting style incorporates ballet elements.
- Expository Hairstyle Change: In her backstory, she cut her hair short after her Career-Ending Injury, she has it back as Cure Étoile.
- Idiot Hair: Has a lock of hair that sticks out, but of the Cures, she seems the most serious.
- Japanese Delinquents: Is seen as this due to her normally cold nature in school. Hana doesn't even realize she's in the same class as she is until she shows up for the first time in episode 4, indicating she skips class.
- Meaningful Name: The kanji for her last name translates to "sparkling tree", and is also a pun on "Kagayaki", the Japanese word for "sparkle/radiance", which fits her star motif.
- Stocking Filler: Cure Étoile wears a thin blue garter on her left thigh.
- Trauma Button: Everytime she attempts to jump, it will remind her of the incident involving failing a figure skating jump and injuring her leg, causing her to quit figure skating.
Voiced by: Konomi Tada
- Cuteness Proximity: Evokes this in everyone who meets her.
- Expy: She's a pretty obvious one of Hana-chan of Ojamajo Doremi (which, coincidentally, is another Toei-made Magical Girl anime). Like Hana, Hugtan is a magical baby with blond hair who the main characters raise as their own.
- Fearless Infant: Notable in that when she comes face-to-face with a giant monster, her first instinct isn't to cry or run away. Rather, she outright tries to confront the monster.
Voiced by: Junko Noda (Hamster Form), Jun Fukushima (Human Form)
- Bag of Holding: His yellow suitcase is barely bigger than his hamster body, but he manages to fit in all of Hugtan's supplies, the four Prehearts, and his miniature house.
- Bishōnen: He can transform into a gorgeous redhead.
- Butt-Monkey: Plenty of recurring jokes, including being mistaken for something other than a hamster and having to take care of Hugtan, are made at his expense. Not surprising, considering he's voiced by Kazuma.
- Expy: Take Coco's status as the main mascot and transforming abilities, Natts's occupation of running a shop, Tarte's status as the caretaker of a plot-relevant baby, put them in a blender, add some Bishōnen, and you get Harry in a nutshell.
- Insistent Terminology: In regards to his hamster form. He is not a mouse; he is Hariham Harry!
- I Thought Everyone Could Do That: When Hana expresses her shock at him talking, Harry seems surprised and tells Hana that he thought all animals in this world could talk. They don't.
- Kansai Regional Accent: Speaks in this dialect.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: Like many other fairies before him, he can turn into a human.
Dark Tomorrow Company
- Bad Boss: The president of the Dark Tomorrow Company who is making his employees search for the Mirai Crystals lest they face serious consequences.
- Big Bad: He's the main antagonist of the series as the President of the Dark Tomorrow Company who wants to eradicate the future.
- Corrupt Corporate Executive: The one calling the shots for Dark Tomorrow Company.
Voiced by: Shin-ichiro Miki
- Meaningful Name: Named after the Japanese slang word "risutora" (short for "restructuration", which is synonymous in Japan with "layoffs").
- The Dragon: For the Big Bad Kurai, as his secretary.
Voiced by: Masanori Machida
Voiced by: Sayaka Ohara
- Meaningful Name: Named after the Showa "bubble" period. Her mannerisms are full of references to that period, using vocabulary and words that were in fashion back then, but not as much now.
Voiced by: Fukushi Ochiai
- Dark-Skinned Blond: He has tanned skin and blond hair, reminiscence of Ganguro fashion.
- Gyaru Girl: The more rare male version. His tanned skin, blond hair, and more "party guy" image brings to mind a certain stereotype of gals.
- Meaningful Name: The "chara" in his name evokes the party-goer and lazy bum/slacker/unfaithful stereotype of a charai otoko ("shallow guy").
- Starter Villain: The first of the villains to confront the Cures in the story.
Voiced by: Yukari Tamura
- Emotionless Girl: She expresses the same stoic face regardless of the situation, and doesn't emote much to Charalit's laziness at reporting the status on the search for the Mirai Crystals.
- Enigmatic Minion: Downplayed. She dutifully follows orders from her higher-ups without question and is proven to be far more competent than the likes of Charalit, to whom she is subservient, but she's not above telling on him when he fails three times and does not report the incidents. Her status as a part-time worker despite her prowess is also rather suspicious.
- Horned Hairdo: Her hair buns.
- Meaningful Name: Her name is pronounced in a way that is reminiscent of "rule".
- Punch-Clock Villain: Unlike the rest of the members of the Dark Tomorrow Company, Lulu works part time in the Azababu branch office as an assistant.
