Mystery Pretty Cure! (ミステリープリキュア!Misuterī Purikyua!) is a Japanese magical girl anime that is produced by Toei Animation, and is the unofficial thirteenth installment of the Pretty Cure franchise. It is directed and written by Kobayashi Tsubomi. The series' motifs are mysteries, mirrors and dreams.

Production Edit

Mystery Pretty Cure! was confirmed by Kobayashi Tsubomi on July 13, 2015. After she watched an episode of Agatha Christie's Marple, she was inspired to create a Pretty Cure series based on mysteries, and made the team a trio because she loves the teams that have members less than five.

Synopsis Edit

Mystery Pretty Cure! Episodes

The series follows a girl named Kagami Himitsu, who moves to Nazomura, where she meets a fox-like fairy by the name of Secret, and Himitsu suddenly transforms into the Princess of Courage, Cure Mirror, born to oppose Darkness and their leader, Lady Nightlight. Secret then fills Himitsu in with her mission: to find the missing goddess of hope, Chie. Himitsu then realises that Darkness is also looking for Chie, and Himitsu has to a find teammates. Thankfully, she has found those teammates: Mizuno Susumu, the smartest girl in her school, as the Princess of Intelligence, Cure Discover; and the school's Queen Bee, Hoshimura Atsuko, as Cure Radiant, the Princess of Kindness. Now, the girls together have to find Chie, and defeat Darkness, before it's too late.

  • Hoshimura Atsuko (星村敦子 Hoshimura Atsuko)/ Cure Radiant (キュアラディアント Kyua Radianto)
    • One of the main protagonists, Atsuko is her school's Queen Bee, but also has a warm personality and because of this, she is very kind. She likes to help out others.

Allies Edit

  • Secret (シークレット Shīkuretto)
    • A fox-like fairy, Secret is a friendly fairy, and cares for the Cures deeply. She was the best friend of Chie, the goddess of hope. Before Chie went missing, she sent Secret to look for the Pretty Cure and the Diary of Dreams. Secret currently lives with Kagami Himitsu.
  • Chie (千恵 Chie)
    • The missing goddess of hope, and not much is known about her. However, she does appear in the dreams of Kagami Himitsu, Mizuno Susumu and Hoshimura Atsuko, with them witnessing the day she disappeared.

Darkness Edit

  • Lady Nightlight (レディナイトライト Redi Naitoraito)
    • The main villain of the series, Lady Nightlight is the ruthless and cruel leader of Darkness. She aims to eliminate all hope by eliminating the goddess of hope, Chie. It is later revealed that Lady Nightlight is Chie's older sister, the goddess of despair, Hotaru.
  • Midnight (ミッドナイト Middonaito)
    • Lady Nightlight's daughter, Midnight seems to take after her mother in several ways. She believes that dreams are just illusions, and she sees the Pretty Cure as fake princesses. She is later revealed to be the goddess of hope's niece.
  • Spoiler Trio (スポイラートリオ Supoirā Torio) is a trio that serve as Lady Nightlight's subordinates, and are the commanders of Darkness. They have the power to create a Yamibot. The members are:
    • Timore (恐怖 Timore): The first member of the Spoiler Trio to appear. His name means "fear" in Latin.
    • Desperatio (絶望 Desperatio): The second member of the Spoiler Trio to appear. His name means "despair" in Latin.
    • Aspera (厳しい Aspera): The final member of the Spoiler Trio to appear. Her name means "harsh" in Latin.
  • Yamibot (闇ボット Yamibotto)
    • The series' main monsters. Yamibots are created when a person reveals a secret to someone else, when that secret should never have been told. A member of the Spoiler Trio then sprays the person (who heard the secret) with a dark mist, and that person is turned into a Yamibot. "Yamibot" is a hybrid between Yami (which means darkness), and bot (which is a shorter version of robot).
