Directed by Sato Junichi and Zako Akifumi and produced by Toei Animation, the series premiered on TV Asahi on February 4, 2018, succeeding KiraKira Pretty Cure A La Mode in its timeslot. The series' themes are destiny, future, heroism, parenting, and jobs.

This series celebrates the 15th anniversary of the Pretty Cure franchise.


Hana Nono is a second-year middle school student who aims to become a stylish, mature big sister like figure. When she realizes she is late for her first day of school, she cuts her bangs in a hurry, causing her hair to look like a mess!

However, there's a nice turn of events when she meets Hugtan and her guardian, Harry, who had fallen from the sky. But suddenly, the Criasu Corporation appears in hopes of stealing Hugtan's Mirai Crystal, so they create a scary monster to attack them!

With the strong desire to protect Hugtan, a new Mirai Crystal appears and transforms Hana into the Pretty Cure of High Spirits, Cure Yell. The Mirai Crystals are a crystallized form of Tomorrow Powerer, the magical power overflowing this world that creates a shining future for everyone. If it's stolen, everyone's futures will disappear, including Hugtan's future.

The story of Cure Yell who should protect important things is about to begin!
