I'm Hoshina Hikaru!
I'm a second year middle school student who loves space and constellations!
While observing the starry sky to draw a constellation in my notepad, a mysterious creature known as "Fuwa" warped before my eyes!
And then, a rocket fell from the sky, which had the aliens "Lala" and "Prunce" come with it!
...You guys, are actually aliens!? Glitterific~☆
Faraway from Earth is a planet called "Starry Sky World" and in the center of it is a holy ground called "Star Palace", which contains the "12 Star Princesses of Constellations" who protect the balance of the whole universe...
But one day, someone attacked and the princesses turned themselves into "12 Princess Star Color Pens" and scattered themselves across the universe!
If this situation continues, the stars will disappear, meaning Earth and the whole universe will be swallowed by darkness...!
"When the star's light are lost, the legendary warriors Pretty Cure will rise together with the Twinkle Book in hand to regain the brilliance again."
Lala says she is searching for the Pretty Cure along with Fuwa in hope that the legend the princesses conveyed will make the universe go back to how it was before.
But then a Notraider who wishes to control the universe appeared and attacked Fuwa...
When I thought "I want to save Fuwa!", my strong emotions made the Twinkle Book create a "Star Color Pendent" and a "Transformation Star Color Pen" which, transformed me into a Pretty Cure!?
Alright, let's leave Earth and jump into space~☆
