"Protect it! Nao's precious bonds with family!!" (守り抜け!なおと家族のたいせつな絆!! Mamorinuke! Nao to kazoku no taisetsu na kizuna!!?) is the 42nd episode of Smile Pretty Cure!, the 34th episode of Glitter Force, and also the 431st episode of the Pretty Cure franchise overall. The English title is "April's Babysitting Blues".


After Nao's mother is hospitalized to deliver her seventh child- she takes it upon herself to help out more. She decides to make curry but forgets an apple, essential for the meal and her younger siblings, Hina and Yuuta offer to get one for her.


Nao's siblings get trapped

Nao decides to make the same curry her mother is known for making when she realizes she forgot to pick up an apple. Hina and Yuuta offer to get one for her and she agrees, realizing she doesn't have much of a choice.

Along the way they are captured by Majorina, using a strange apple to take them captive. She decides to use them as a way to lure Cure March to her.

Keita, Haru, and Kouta meet up with Nao and they try to locate their missing siblings; as they should have been back by this point. By now, everyone except for Nao is worn out and has no energy left.

After they manage to find Majorina and the missing siblings, Nao transforms into Cure March upon realizing she doesn't have a choice. This surprises her family but she doesn't waste time speaking. She quickly fights to defend everyone from the apple Akanbe Majorina made. Her younger brothers and sister attempt to defend her and Majorina threatens to rid of them. 

Nao's siblings protecting Nao

Nao remembers everything she's done with her younger siblings and protects them from being hurt before she proclaims, "I'll definitely protect my family!", than Cure March turns into her ultimate form and starts fighting. To keep going, Majorina changes into her younger form as well.

Angered with her, she releases her new attack, March Shoot Impact, but it doesn't do much against the Akanbe- and she can only watch as it grows stronger. It releases a powerful attack to kill her siblings, and she starts to freak out. Out of strength again, all she can do is helplessly watch as they

supposedly die. However, to her shock, she looks on to find Cure Sunny and Happy there defending them. 

With relief, she sees that Cure Beauty and Peace are freeing Hina and Yuuta from the Akanbe. The girls get together and transform into Princess Mode in order to use Royal Rainbow Burst and everything goes back to normal. Majorina takes off with the Akanbe destroyed.

Everyone at the hospital cheering that a baby was born

The girls look on to find Nao in tears over their help. She thanks her friends and Miyuki hugs her. But suddenly, Nao's father shows up to tell them the baby was born.
