Really Busy! Makoto's Idol Days! (大いそがし!真琴のアイドルな日々! Dai Isogashi! Makoto no Aidoru na Hibi!?) is the 15th episode of the season Doki Doki! Pretty Cure, and also the 452nd episode of the Pretty Cure franchise overall. In the English dub, Glitter Force Doki Doki, it is called "Lights... Camera... Distraction!"


Makoto gains the lead role in the movie, Snow White, but deals with a rival who also vies for the role. Meanwhile Makoto runs herself tired trying to learn her role and continue the search for Marie-Ange. As this is going on, Regina makes plans to defeat Pretty Cure.



Makoto falls asleep in class.

Mana spots a poster featuring Makoto as Snow White. Dabyi comes by to inform them that she has been busy searching for the Princess again, but got accepted for this role.

As class is going on she watches as Makoto falls asleep. The girls decide to pay her a visit to the studio later on in the day to make sure she is doing alright. They find her trying to practice the role with everyone pleased with the effort, but across the room is Tamaki, an actor envious that she got the role.

The girls saw Makoto worrying while playing and Mana had a plan. The girls went to Makoto's room and told her to give up on searching for the Princess for the time being. While she is busy with this role they will take over. Makoto accepted it and left it to them.


Regina telling them about plans

Meanwhile the Selfish Trio serves Regina corn on the cob, as she wished to eat corn, but she complains that the corn she wants to eat is "rich, luxurious buttered corn". When the Selfish Trio becomes annoyed by her orders, Regina goes off on her own to find a "rich, luxurious buttered corn"- a selfish  person which she can make a Jikochū out of.


Regina about to summon a Jikochuu.

It is Makoto's last day of shooting. However, she and Tamaki are interrupted by Regina, who announces that she has found her "rich, luxurious buttered corn" - Tamaki, despite the actress having no selfishness in her heart whatsoever. Regina attemps to get closer to Tamaki, but Makoto protects her, telling Regina to leave at once. Regina becomes annoyed, and uses her powers to force Tamaki's Psyche to become black with selfishness, thus giving birth to a mirror Jikochū.

Mana and the others arrive to aid Makoto, and they transform while Sebastian leads the bystanders away. Cure Sword tries to weaken the Jikochū with Sparkle Sword, but Regina once again interrupts her and the Jikochū attacks. Rosetta protects Sword with Rosetta Reflection, while Diamond freezes the Jikochū with Diamond Shower.

Cure Heart tries to purify the Jikochū with Heart Shoot, but the Jikochū simply reflects it back. Cure Heart, Cure Diamond, and Cure Rosetta worry that there is no way to defeat the Jikochū, but Cure Sword tells them that if they combine their powers, there will surely be a way to defeat the Jikochū. Ai-chan arrives and produces four new Loveads for the Cures. The Cures then used them and performed Lovely Force Arrow, purifying the Jikochū. Everything goes back to normal, and Regina introduces herself to the Cures as Selfish King's daughter.

The third Crystal is collected.

As a thank you for what she has learned, Tamaki gives Makoto a somewhat beaten up script. She accepts it and when Ai-chan touches it, a glow forms to summon a purple Royal Crystal.

Major Events

  • Regina creates her first Jikochuu, done by corrupting a Psyche without a victim being selfish.
  • After Makoto lets the other Cures help her while she prepares for a movie role, the Cures gain the Lovead to perform Lovely Force Arrow for the first time.
  • Makoto gains the Purple Royal Crystal from the script of her co-star in a movie rendition of Snow White.
