Homare Withdraws!? The Skating Prince's Fast Approach! (ほまれ脱退!? スケート王子が急接近! Homare Dattai!? Sukēto Ōji ga Kyūsekkin!?) is the 8th episode of HUGtto! Pretty Cure and is the 692nd episode of the Pretty Cure franchise overall.


A boy from Homare's past named Wakamiya Henri returns to Japan upon learning about her taking up ice skating again. He wants her to come back to Moscow to help bring her back up to her full potential after being away for some time, believing her current friends are holding her back. With her friends worried, Homare continues to practice normally.


The man from the last episode is revealed to be Henri Wakamiya, Homare's prior figure skating trainer. He heard Homare is getting back into it, and he wants her to return with him to Moscow to pursue the sport further. He also says to Hana and Saaya's faces that they are holding Homare back.

Later, Hana decides to call Homare whilst she is training. Hana doesn't exactly know what to say, but Homare finds comfort in hearing her friend's voice. She goes on to invite her and Saaya to go out with her the following day.

The trio go out as promised. Saaya talks a little with Homare, and says that her first memories of them sparkle more and more when she is together with them. Harry suggests that the girls may a little bit too nice, and should be honest with their own hearts as well. Homare then approaches Henri, noticing him nearby. He tells her that she could only have a top level coach if she goes to Moscow with him, and Hana overhears this. She promises to cheer Homare on, but this causes Henri to remark that she is only putting extra pressure on Homare, but this is acceptable. He assumes Homare is coming back with him and he prepares to leave them alone, but Homare stops him by pointing out that she has something to show the both of them.

This being her ice skating, and how being with Hana and Saaya has introduced her to a new world. She astounds her new friends with her finesse, but it doesn't go as well as she'd hoped. She decides to attempt the jump that led to her temporary career-ending injury, but she falls once more. But she stands up with determination, and the girls rush out onto the ice to express how proud they are.

Papple then appears to summon an Oshimaida and the trio transform. Papple then mentions something about wasting time and Cure Étoile states that there is no thing as wasting time, and her earnest dedication to reaching new heights earns her the Orange Mirai Crystal and upgrades her main attack.

After Papple retreats, Henri decides to give up on trying to convince her to return to Moscow with him. Hana then offers to continue supporting Homare however she can, and she happens to encounter a mysterious man with a book. A flashback from the man is shown, where people looking full of hope, forward to the bright future are shown.

At school the following day, Henri shows up and reveals that Homare is a Pretty Cure.
