Personality

Saki is a cheerful athletic girl and a member of Yuunagi Middle School's girls' softball team. Her family runs the PANPAKA Pan Bakery. She is very energetic and optimistic girl whose hopeful nature often inspires or encourages others. She is often bored easily on subjects she isn't interested in. She is selfless and kind but has a short temper at times. While she is good at baking delicious bread, she seems to struggle with making other things.

Relationships

Mishou Mai is Saki's closest friend. They seem to have met five years prior to the series but didn't really get the chance to talk. As Splash Star begins they become best friends rather quickly and grow closer by helping Flappy and Choppy.

Flappy is Saki's fairy partner. Although they sometimes argue, they still care for each other and Saki is always there to protect and aid Flappy.

Hyuuga Minori is Saki's little sister. They usually do not bicker or argue, but Minori often does make mischief when with or around Saki. While she normally gets along with her little sister, she can be stern with her when she feels the need to be. Once Saki scolded her, causing her to run away after a big fight occurred between Mai and Saki. They share a bedroom and get along better over the course of the series.

Mishou Kazuya is Mai's older brother, who Saki becomes immediately infatuated with upon their first meeting when she was late for school. She often blushes in front of him. He seems to like her, but as nothing more then his little sister's friend.

Hoshino Kenta is Saki's oldest close friend, they grew up together and have a good-friend relationship. Often joking or taunting each other. Though Kenta seems to have a short fuse with Saki, he also has a crush on her that she doesn't seem to realize.

Hino Akane - Akane as Cure Sunny appears to be interacting with Bloom/Bright as seen here in the pre-credits image of Pretty Cure All Stars New Stage 2: Kokoro no Tomodachi.

Etymology

Hyuuga (日向?): Hyuu (?) translates to sun, and ga (?) translates to facing; toward. The two kanji can also mean sunny place or in the sun when used in normal speech rather than as a surname, in which case they are pronounced hinata. This could be a reference to Saki being compared to a sunflower many times throughout the season, and also in relation to brightness, which is represented by her Cure Bright persona.

Saki (?): Comes from the verb saku (咲く?), meaning for a flower to smile, or to bloom, obviously referring to her alter ego Cure Bloom and her flower-based powers.[1]

Her name means "sun facing toward to bloom."

History

Reuniting and becoming a Pretty Cure

In episode 1, while Saki was eating her ice cream wafer, Mai showed up suddenly at the Sky Tree. The girls felt as though they had met before when Flappy and Choppy suddenly fell from the sky and confirmed their thoughts. But before they could go further, Minori showed up, so Saki was forced to leave. She returned later to see Mai still there, and it was then that the girls were shown how they met in the past before being attacked. Vowing to protect Flappy and Choppy, they became Cure Bloom and Cure Egret, the new Pretty Cures.

Cure Bloom

Cure Bloom (キュアブルーム Kyua Burūmu?) is Saki's alter ego, blessed with the power of the earth. When Karehan attacks Flappy and Choppy and creates an Uzaina, Flappy becomes the Mix Commune by chanting "Dual Spiritual Power!", allowing her to become Cure Bloom while Choppy allows Mai to become Cure Egret. Like the previous Pretty Cure, they need to hold hands to transform and launch a group attack. Both take down the Uzaina for the very first time, and fight evil regularly thereafter until the final defeat of the Dark Fall.

Cure Bloom can engage in physical combat, set up energy shields, fly freely using spiritual power, and is protected by a passive force field. Cure Bloom runs on the ground more often due to her abilities pertaining to the earth. Her spiritual powers take the form of solar light, and Cure Bloom exhibits a golden aura. Cure Bloom bears the Flower symbol from Flappy on the back of her gloves. These symbols are always used for launching a group attack and retained when they attain their second form.

Together with Cure Egret, they can perform the Twin Stream Splash. Midway in the show, two additional spirits from the Land of Fountains, Moop and Foop use the Splash Commune to provide them a pair of Spiral Rings so they can perform a more powerful group attack, the Spiral Heart Splash. After attaining her second form, Cure Bright, Saki can freely choose and switch between her two forms, and she has been using both forms in the later half of the show. She also finishes the final battle as Cure Bloom, as only Cure Bloom can access the Flower power of Flappy. Together with Cure Egret, Kiryuu Michiru and Kiryuu Kaoru, with the latter carrying a portion of Moop and Foop's powers respectively, the four have launched the final finisher, the Spiral Heart Splash Star.

As shown from one of the movies, Cure Bloom's image attack is the Bloom Shield.

Cure Bright

Cure Bright (キュアブライト Kyua Buraito?) is Cure Bloom's alternative form that she obtains halfway through the series. She gets her spiritual power from the moon, which is collected by Moop and used by Flappy. Cure Bright has a yellow and green outfit. Cure Bright's outfit coloring scheme is significantly different from Cure Bloom's, but the design is quite similar. Saki and Mai arrive at the Dark Fall to rescue Flappy and Choppy, only to find them seriously injured. The spirits Moop and Foop heal them, upgrading them from the Mix Commune Set to the Crystal Commune Set and allowing Saki to become Cure Bright.

After the upgrade, Flappy attains its ability to use the Moon power collected by Moop to maintain Saki's Cure Bright transformation. Contrast to Cure Bloom, who pertains to the Earth and runs the on ground more often, Cure Bright stays the in air more often for pertaining to the Sky. In addition to all of Cure Bloom's capability, Cure Bright can use the Light power of the Moon to make beam blasts and for defense. Cure Bright exhibits a yellow-green aura. Cure Bright bears the Moon symbol from Moop as her belt buckle, but she still bears the Flower symbols on her gloves and still uses such symbols to launch a group attack. Together with Cure Windy, their new group attack is the Spiral Star Splash, which is actually the same attack as the Spiral Heart Splash except the powers are different. Cure Bright and Cure Windy require the Spiral Ring Set to launch a group attack, which is supplied by the same pair of spirits as their Cure transformation.

Flappy and Choppy still retain their ability to collect spiritual power from the earth and the sky after this upgrade, so the girls can freely choose and switch between the two forms. Their two forms look different and bear different Cure titles, but they are actually two different representations of the same transformation, and the girls can only access two of the four powers available to them in either form. Saki fights more frequently as Cure Bright in the later half of the show, and fights as Cure Bright for three of the four episodes for the final battle.
