Thank you Papa! Yayoi's treasure (パパ、ありがとう!やよいのたからもの Papa, arigatō! Yayoi no takaramono?) is the 19th episode of Smile Pretty Cure!, and the 408th episode of the Pretty Cure franchise overall.


Kise Yayoi struggles to remember a secret she once shared with her late father after the class is asked to research the meaning of their names.



Yayoi worries about the assignment

One rainy day, the class is asked to do a bit of research by asking their parents the meanings behind their names. Everyone is excited, except for Kise Yayoi, who seems worried. Meanwhile, a fussy Wolfrun reads a book of names to find out the meaning of his own name. After reading that "Wolfrun" means "impatient, violent liar" and that nobody loves him, Wolfrun angrily decides that his name is Wolfrun because he's a wolf, and that due to the inevitable Bad End, love is useless.

After school, Yayoi's mother has returned from work, and she and Yayoi get to work making dinner. Yayoi asks Chiharu what her name means, and Chiharu says that her father named her and that she doesn't know it's meaning, leaving Yayoi unsatisfied. Due to Yayoi only being five when he passed away, she barely remembers anything about him.


Yayoi finds her name in the dictionary

As Yayoi's friends are finding out the meanings of their names, Yayoi looks up her name in a name dictionary and discovers that Yayoi is the old Japanese word for March. Yayoi then gets a flashback to a dark building and the shadow of a tree, but she can't remember anything more.

The next day in class everyone gives their report. Hoshizora Miyuki says that her family named her Miyuki (meaning "happiness") because they wanted her to grow up to be happy. Hino Akane says that her family named her Akane ("madder red") because Akane's father wanted a name that started with A, and because the sky was madder red the day Akane was born and Akane's mother wanted Akane to have a heart as beautiful as the sky. Nao says that her father named her Nao (meaning "straight" or "straightforward") because he wanted her to be straightforward and honest. Aoki Reika says that her name means "flower beauty" and that her grandfather gave her the name because he wanted her to be as lovely as a flower and have a beautiful heart.

Finally, Yayoi says that her name means March. Nao says that the name fits because Yayoi is as lively as spring, but Miyuki can't help but notice how sad Yayoi looks.

After school the girls make their way home as Yayoi brings up what she does remember about her father to the rest. They encourage her to speak to her mother, thinking she might feel better if she does, and she agrees with nothing else to lose.


The girls walking in the rain

When Yayoi goes to see Chiharu, Chiharu is working at a fashion store called the Fairy Drop. Nonetheless, Chiharu is willing to talk to Yayoi. Yayoi's friends decide to leave in order to give her space, and she explains how she has been feeling to Chiharu. Seeing how unhappy her daughter is, she stops for a moment and reaches for a nearby drawing and hands it to her. The drawing was done by Yayoi when she was young for her father, and in return he made an origami fox as a present for her. While Yayoi feels happy, she can't recall these precious memories.

Suddenly, Wolfrun appears and sucks the Bad End energy from everyone in the area and turns the origami fox into an Akanbe.

The girls arrive and transform with Yayoi before they fight it. Peace struggles to attack it, due to being reminded of her father as she punches it out of her way and lands on the ground. As she sees sliding water nearby, something suddenly dawns on her.


Little Yayoi with her father

Before his death, she remembered being brought to the church one day, where she pretended to have a wedding with her father. Her father explained that Chiharu's name means "a thousand springs", so he named Yayoi after a type of spring. Her name represented the gentleness he saw in her mother and he hoped she would grow up to be a gentle person as well.

Having remembered her precious memory, Peace feels at ease, and with newfound determination, she begins to fight the Akanbe with everything she has.


Cure Peace fights the Akanbe

She uses Peace Thunder on it, not crying out when the lightning hits her like she usually does, and the girls gain a brand new Cure Decor, the Cherry Decor. Wolfrun takes off and everything returns to normal.

Yayoi meets up with her mother again and they head back to the church. They appreciate their names even more than they did before, and they thank Yuuichi for the love he gave them. All the while, Yayoi's friends stand behind and smile while observing them.

Major Events

  • Cure Peace uses Peace Thunder without shocking herself for the first time.
  • The girls switch to their summer uniforms/casual clothes from this episode onward.
  • The meanings behind the girls' names are revealed.





Secondary Characters


  • The fashion show featured in this episode was hosted by Fairy Drop, while Heartcatch Pretty Cure!'s Erika's character image song Special*Colorful was played as background music. In addition, when Kise Chiharu left the room to answer a phone call, the person she was talking to over the phone was a fashion designer by the name of "Kurumi".
  • This episode is one of the eight omitted from the English dub Glitter Force, because of two reasons. It could either be due to it relying on the girls' Japanese names or due to the subject matter of a parent's death.
  • The edited stock footage from this episode of Cure Peace using Peace Thunder without letting it hurt her is reused in Pretty Cure All Stars New Stage 2: Kokoro no Tomodachi when she fights alongside Cure Sword.
