Hugtto! Pretty Cure
Starts airing on 4 February 2018
Hana Nono may be in her second year in middle school, but she knows that she wants to be someone that others can look up to and mature. Yet, she fails terribly on her first day of school, where she runs late and cuts off way too much of her bangs. However, she has a nice encounter that makes up for it when a mysterious baby called Hagu-tan drops out of the sky with its caretaker (?) Hariham Harry. Hana starts to fight the evil organization that wants to steal the Mirai Crystal from Hagu-tan.
Her strong feelings to protect Hagu-tan give birth to a new Mirai Crystal and Hana transforms into Pretty Cure of High Spirits, Cure Yell. The Mirai Crystals are ‘Tomorrows Powerer’ and what gives this world and everyone in it a future. If they are stolen, everybody’s future will disappear and Hagu-tan as well. The story of Cure Yell and how she protects the precious things in this world starts.
