The Futari wa Pretty Cure Max Heart manga was created by the Kamikita Twins and replaced the Futari wa Pretty Cure manga in the Nakayoshi magazine.

The first chapter came out in the March 2005 issue, and it continued monthly to the August 2005 issue, and from the October 2005 issue to the February 2006 issue (skipping September). It was replaced in 2006 by the Futari wa Pretty Cure Splash Star manga.

Summary

In content, it seems similar to the first manga - original slice of life stories. However, with Hikari's introduction, the focus went from Nagisa's love troubles to the relationship between Nagisa, Honoka and Hikari, with FujiP only occasionally appearing. Fujita Akane is a major character as well.

The Nakayoshi chapters weren't published until 2014, where they were collected in the tankobon Futari wa Pretty Cure Max Heart Pretty Cure Collection.

On the other hand, the Twins were commissioned to draw manga adaptions of Futari wa Pretty Cure Max Heart: The Movie and Futari wa Pretty Cure Max Heart 2: Yukizora no Tomodachi. They were published in 2005 under the names Futari wa Pretty Cure Max Heart: The Movie and Futari wa Pretty Cure Max Heart: The Movie 2 and were reprinted in 2015 under the Pretty Cure Collection label.

The Kamikita Twins switched to digital art for these manga, making the art look cleaner and the backgrounds often richer.

Chapters

Chapter 01
Nagisa and Honoka meet Kujou Hikari for the first time in school. Afterwards, they meet again by chance at Akane's Tako Café, where Akane introduces Hikari as her cousin. As Akane has to do deliveries, the three girls manage the café together for a short while, which brings them closer. FujiP, now a high schooler, also makes a brief appearance.
Chapter 02
Hikari is established as Shiny Luminous on the first page, and some events of the anime are briefly recapped. Nagisa misunderstands a comment from Pollun and thinks Hikari and FujiP are going to start a romantic relationship, which makes her jealous.

Chapter 04
FujiP invites Nagisa to the amusement park, and Nagisa has trouble picking out an outfit. Meanwhile, Hikari worries about not being dependable. Wanting to help out Nagisa, she buys a wedding dress for her - sadly unfitting for a simple date, but nice for a photoshoot, which the three girls end up doing together.
Chapter 05

It becomes an argument as Honoka is irritated with Nagisa, but doesn't tell her why. In their bickering they squish a cake that Honoka bought. Nagisa apologizes when she finds out about the lengths Honoka went through to get the cake for her, while Honoka admits that she needs to be more honest about her feelings.
Chapter 08
After a comment by her classmates, Nagisa wonders about the future and if they will all go their seperate ways. She has a dream about her birthday party.

Both follow the plot of the movies faithfully, with some events mixed or shortened, and others portrayed more seriously. The first movie's manga was released the same time as the movie, while the second released two weeks before the movie, basically spoiling its plot.
