Beware of the Cute Student Teacher! (イケてる実習生に気をつけろ! "Iketeru Jisshūsei ni ki wo Tsukete!"?), dubbed Who's the New TA? in the English dub, is the 3rd episode of the season Futari wa Pretty Cure, and also the 3rd episode of Pretty Cure franchise overall.

Summary

To quickly put an end to Pretty Cure, Pisard infiltrates their school, pretending to be a substitute teacher.

Synopsis

In the Dotsuku Zone, Pisard tells an impatient Evil King that he is trying to extract energy from the area where Pretty Cure lives, as it is filled with the "power of life." The King, not being presented with this energy, tells Pisard to stop messing around, telling him that he is expendable.

Nagisa flustered.

Meanwhile, at Wakabadai Station, Nagisa is with Shiho and Rina, thinking to herself about her duties as Pretty Cure, but becomes distracted thinking about the boy on the soccer team who accidentally broke a window at school with a soccer ball recentlyFwPC02, only for him to suddenly appear behind her. She watches as he runs past and she gets excited as thinking he might be trying to catch up to her, only for him to run past to his friend. The friend remarks that "Fuji-P" is late, leaving an embarrassed Nagisa to continue on her way.

At Verone Acadamy, the Principal and Vice-Principal look out at the students entering the building, talking about how nice the weather is while remembering that the student-teachers are set to arrive the next day. In the classroom, the 2nd-year Sakura students are given the itinerary for the field trip coming up next week. Yoshimi mentions that one of the girls will have to be the leader. While thinking this over, Nagisa and her friends are quietly discussing the new student-teachers arriving, only for Yoshimi to catch Nagisa goofing off. Not convinced she was paying attention, Yoshimi decides to put her in charge of the field trip but wonders if she can handle it alone, so she assigns Honoka to assist Nagisa with the planning.

Once school is over, Rina brings up her plans to go to the beauty salon. Shiho asks if it's because of the student-teachers coming the following day and considers joining her, while Nagisa tells them they're getting too excited. Just then, Honoka comes by, causing Mepple and Mipple to sense each other and shake excitedly. When Shiho and Rina hear their noises, Honoka and Nagisa brush it off, using the field trip planning as an excuse to quickly leave.

Chuutaro licks Mepple.

Making their way home, Nagisa scolds Mepple for making an outburst in public, but he denies fault. They arrive at the Yukishiro household and Honoka invites Nagisa in, as she and Mepple are greeted by Chuutaro. Nagisa comments on how quiet it is here, with Honoka explaining that her parents work outside of the country, so only she and her grandmother live here at the time. She then excuses herself for a bit, leaving Nagisa and the fairies in her bedroom, allowing them to transform into their normal forms and embrace each other.

When Honoka returns, she brings up the fairies' alternating forms and asks for an explanation. Mepple and Mipple describe their current, plush-like forms as being their true forms. But in order to converse energy, they transform into their phone-like forms when in the Garden of Rainbows, however, for a small amount of time each day they can transform back to their true forms. Mepple then goes on to explain the Prism Stones, a set of seven stones with the power of creation, and how their homeland, the Garden of Light, was protected by them. However, one day, the Dotsuku Zone attacked and stole five of them. For safety measures, he and Mipple were given the remaining two and escaped to the Garden of Rainbow. It's up to Pretty Cure to protect them and take back the remaining five.

Suddenly, Honoka's grandmother arrives with cookies and introduces herself to Nagisa. She takes a moment to observe the duo and comments that they make a nice pair before leaving.

In town, Pisard overlooks people walking in the city, as he thinks about his previous recent encounters with Pretty Cure. The next day, a mysterious person enters Verone Academy where they are noticed by one of the teachers, who recognizes them as a student-teacher. The full-time teacher is surprised, as he was told that the trainee had a cold and couldn't come. Later, the students are introduced to several of the student-teachers, and the mysterious man, revealed to be Pisard, is introduced as Mr. "Kazama Yuuichi" (風間竜一?). Shiho and even Ms. Yoshimi are instantly smitten by him. Instead of making a speech, Pisard stays silent, surveying the crowd of girls to locate Pretty Cure, finding Nagisa.

FwPC03 Kazama and Yoshimi

Mr. Kazama and Ms. Yoshimi.

After the introduction ceremony, Mr. Kazama walks with Yoshimi, who introduces herself as his mentor. Still attracted to him, she asks if he thinks they were destined to meet. He ignores her initially, before realizing he could use her to his advantage, and hypnotizes her into bringing Nagisa to him. Back in class, a mind-controlled Ms. Yoshimi asks Nagisa to help her with something outside. The Vice-Principal notices Mr. Kazama outside the classroom and ask what he's doing, only to be frightened away with a glare. The 2nd-year Sakura students begin to notice that their teacher still hasn't returned, prompting Honoka to go check on them.

Ms. Yoshimi leads Nagisa into the gym, only to find Mr. Kazama demanding the Prism Stones from her. She soon realizes who it is, as Pisard changes back to his true form and holds Ms. Yoshimi hostage. Nagisa, not bringing Mepple with her, states that she doesn't have them, but Pisard doesn't believe her. Honoka then shows up, holding both Mepple and Mipple. As Pisard tells Honoka to hand them over, Nagisa tries to run to Ms. Yoshimi, but is stopped and pushed back by Pisard. Mipple tells the two girls to transform, so Honoka throws Mipple over to Nagisa.

FwPC03 - PreCure saves Yoshimi

Ms. Yoshimi is stopped from being put in danger.

Pisard summons a Zakenna which possesses a nearby stack of vaulting boxes, which hurls itself at the girls who dodge. They then notice the still hypnotized Ms. Yoshimi dangerously walking on the steel frames connected to the ceiling, so they climb after her on a rope. However, several Zakenna-possessed basketballs fly at them. The girls block them until they make it to the top and protect their hypnotized teacher from harm. Cure White protects them from more flying basketballs while Cure Black safely gets down with Ms. Yoshimi. Pisard orders another Zakenna to possess the nearby stage curtains, wrapping the three up in fabric before flinging them towards a wall, as Pretty Cure cushion the impact for their teacher. After getting up, the duo launch their Marble Screw attack at the Zakenna, even catching Pisard in the blast, as he is sent out of the gym. The remaining Zakenna break down and scatter.

Meanwhile, Shiho curiously wonders what could be keeping their teacher, Nagisa, and Honoka. Rina doesn't really care though, because she's just happy that class was disrupted.

Back in the gym, the girls try to wake up Yoshimi. She is startled and demands to know why they're not in class, but their attempts to make an excuse without revealing the truth causes her to believe they were trying to skip class. She shoves the two back to the classroom, as they remark on her sudden amnesia.
