Asuka's alter ego is Cure Flamingo (キュアフラミンゴ?), and her charm point is her hair.
Asuka has sharp purple eyes and long, rust red hair with her spiked bangs layered towards the side. Casually, she wears a cropped pale blue tank-top beneath a cropped, loose red shirt, along with a choker, short blue pants with black stripes on each side, and blue sandals. She also wears the red Heart Kuru Ring on her left ring finger.
As Cure Flamingo, her hair grows out and becomes bright crimson with turquoise streaks and she gains light pink heart-shaped flecks on her eyes. She wears a feathery pink and blue piece attached to a gold triangle. She wears a single gold earring with a feather dangling on her left ear. She wears a white cropped shirt with off-shoulder feathered sleeves and a peach collar lined in white and red. At the center is a gold shell with red ribbon strands. She wears a short white skirt with a shorter ruffled red skirt over it and her Tropical Pact rests on a white bow. On her right are thick light green ruffles. She also gains fishnet stockings with red and white boots, and white finger-less gloves with a red cuff.
Asuka is an athletic 3rd year middle school student with a strong sense of justice. At first glance, she appears to be cool and unapproachable, especially towards Yuriko. However, she is actually a very reliable big sister type. In fact, she really loves to cook and play cute animal games.
- Laura: Asuka started out not particularly fond of Laura, even stating she didn't become Cure Flamingo for her, but to protect the others. However, as she spent more time with Laura, she grew to appreciate her more.
- Shiratori Yuriko: Asuka appears to have an unpleasant past with Yuriko, which explains why they are cold towards one another.
- Natsuumi Manatsu, Suzumura Sango and Ichinose Minori: Her juniors and friends. Asuka met Manatsu when the latter is threatened by some thugs, and through Manatsu she meets Sango and Minori. At first, Asuka acts distant towards them, but soon accepts them as her friends.
Cure Flamingo is a large bird with pink feathers, long, thin legs, a long neck, and a beak that curves down .
Meeting her Juniors and Becoming Cure Flamingo
One day when Manatsu and Laura are threatened by some thugs, Asuka comes across them and stands up for Manatsu, though she leaves after telling Manatsu her name. The next day, Manatsu, Sango and Laura want to scout her as part of their team, only for them to be rejected by her, as she says she does not believe in teamwork. However, she still helps out Manatsu and Sango when Yuriko is about to reject their club registration, and helps them and Minori clean up the shed.
When realizing that the three girls are potentially endangered, Asuka heads to the recycle center, and finds out that they are fighting Numeri's Yaraneeda. Despite initially being a person who does not like teamwork, Asuka vows to protect them, and becomes Cure Flamingo for the first time.TRPC05

The transformation starts with Asuka's Tropical Pact appearing. She then holds the pact while removing her Heart Kuru Ring, inserting it into the lock and turning it. The pact opens up, revealing her reflection. Then Asuka takes the brush and flips, shouting "Let's make up! Bling!", touching the center of the pact with it, causing it to glow. She then shouts "Cheeks"! as she presses the brush against her cheeks, giving them a rosy glow. Then she taps the center again and shouts "Eyes!", giving her pink eyeshadow and adding light pink heart-shaped flecks to her eyes. Then she taps the center again and shouts "Lips!" as she applies lipstick. She taps the middle yet again and shouts "Hair!", running her hand through her hair as it turns bright red with turquoise streaks. She taps the middle one more time and shouts "Dress!" as she draws a turquoise diamond with the brush, which splits into seven diamonds. Each of the diamonds strike her body, making parts of her outfit appear. First are her shoes, followed by her gloves, then her top, skirt, hairpiece, and earring. A pouch for her Tropical Pact appears on the left, dropping in. With the transformation complete, Flamingo does a couple of kicks and moves before landing on the ground. She then turns around and introduces herself, doing several quick moves before striking her final pose.
- Buttobi Flamingo Smash (ぶっとびフラミンゴスマッシュ?): Cure Flamingo's solo attack that she can perform with her Heart Rouge Rod.
- Mix Tropical (ミックストロピカル?): A group attack that Cure Flamingo performs with Summer, Coral and Papaya. To perform it, she and her teammates need their Heart Rouge Rods and the Heart Quartet Ring.
