Characters

Pretty Cure

  • Nagato Ryuugu (龍宮永戸 Ryūgū Nagato?) - A deeply cynical second-year student. Overall, he's pretty aloof and down-to-earth, but he doesn't have the patience to deal with people who cant follow his logic. He has difficulty openly expressing his emotions, and would rather act bewildered than take action in difficult situations. He also tends to harshly judge other people, and many of his friends suspect that he's more than a little misanthropic. Nagato doesn't have a funny bone in his body, and ends up accidentally taking things said in jest completely at face value, much to his embarrassment. Unlike most others, he's very unenthusiastic about the supernatural happenings around the town of Minahoro, as he has the unique ability to see the physical forms of Youkai. Nagato forges a pact with Amaterasu to become Cure Asahi (キュアアサヒ Kyua Asahi?), the warrior of the sun. His theme colour is pink and his symbol is a peach blossom.
    • CV: Tasuku Hatanaka / Sean Chiplock
  • Une Kaijou (海城雨音 Kaijō Une?) - A two-faced honour student in Nagato's class. While she makes a great first impression as an upstanding, charismatic, and level-headed young lady, her true nature is a lot more malevolent. As someone who is highly socially aware, Une uses her interpersonal intelligence to purposefully get under people's skin, to manipulate them or otherwise. She acts belligerent and smug to anyone who criticizes her personality, and she hates nothing more than people digging into her personal life. She thinks very highly of herself— at least in the presence of other people. It takes her a long while to treat the other cures like anything but muck scraped from the bottom of her shoe. Une forges a pact with Susano'o to become Cure Nami (キュアナミ Kyua Nami?). Her theme colour is blue and her symbol is a plum blossom.
    • CV: Ayahi Takagaki / Kira Buckland
  • Minari Kumori (雲折美鳴 Kumori Minari?) - A second-year student who is overflowing with vitality and optimism. She loves to make new friends and partake in new experiences. Minari somewhat naively believes there is goodness in everyone, and its for this reason that she ends up feeding the egos of people like Une who have utterly rotten personalities. Even before the story, Minari is Une's cheerleader whether she likes it or not. Her presence can sometimes be overwhelming, and she even diffidently jokes that she sucks the energy out of her classmates in order to keep herself going. Her sense of humour is wholly absurd at times, and she enjoys wordplay. Minari forges a pact with Raijin to become Cure Denki (キュアデンキ Kyua Denki?). Her theme colour is yellow and her symbol is an orange blossom.
    • CV: Kokoro Kikuchi / Kate Higgins
  • Shizuku Hirawa (平輪閑玖 Hirawa Shizuku?) - A delinquent who keeps her distance from her schoolmates. Her reputation is one of rowdiness and rigor, and there are even some adults who'd hate to cross paths with her. She is both physically and mentally tough, and seems to have no fears. When the situation calls for it, Shizuku displays a lot of responsibility and an intense sisterly instinct (especially towards her younger brother). Despite her distant personality, her assertiveness comes in handy when mediation is necessary. Surprisingly, Shizuku appreciates wit, and has a lighthearted side that often creeps out in the heat of the moment. Shizuku forges a pact with Fuujin to become Cure Tatsumaki (キュアタツマキ Kyua Tatsumaki?). Her theme colour is red and her symbol is a strawberry blossom.
    • CV: Sayaka Kinoshita / Dorothy Elias Fahn
  • Youichi Tsukinoe (月ノ会陽一 Tsukinoe Yōichi?) - A second-year student with a calm and lackadaisical demeanour. He is clumsy and kinda clueless, but it's pointless to make fun of him for it. He isn't very high energy, but like Minari he has an overwhelmingly positive aura. In class he loses focus within minutes (and it's not rare to catch him falling asleep), but he could ramble for hours about things he's interested in. He frequently misplaces his belongings and cant parse verbal directions. His favourite hobby is drawing, but he regrettably never finishes his sketches. Although he's introverted, he enjoys the presence of other people. Youichi forges a pact with Tsukuyomi to become Cure Usagi (キュアウサギ Kyua Usagi?). His theme colour is purple and his symbol is an apricot blossom.
    • CV: Junya Enoki / Kyle McCarley
  • Sakuya Morohoshi (諸星朔夜 Morohoshi Sakuya?) - A rather straight-faced middle schooler who lacks friends. She has been deathly shy and very easily startled since she was a child. Although no longer as timid when placed in social situations as she was before, she still prefers to keep to herself, and tends to brace for the worst in any uncertain scenario. She has a very difficult time getting to know other people, and she feels that sometimes her classmates pretend she doesn't exist. Like Nagato, Sakuya can see the physical forms of Youkai, but she's much too worried about standing out to mention it to anyone. She loves fluffy and cute things. Sakuya forges a pact with Amaterasu to become Cure Hikari (キュアヒカリ Kyua Hikari?). Her theme colour is white and her symbol is a cherry blossom.
    • CV: Tsumugi Okura / Eden Riegel

Mascots and Allies

  • Jamu the Swindler (詐欺師ジャム Sagi-shi Jamu?)- A cocky, smooth-talking tanuki from Takamagahara. They are particularly greedy, and used to scam mortals out of their possessions before Amaterasu put an end to their con. Since then, Jamu (and their brother Pai) have become the attendants of the Chrysanthemum Room. When the Youkai breached Takamagahara, Pai disappeared with them, and Jamu made a deal with Amaterasu that she'd let them visit Yomi no Kuni to rescue him if they helped find the cures and retrieved the Ring of Takamagahara.
    • CV: Kayo Ishida
  • Sunao Kourogi (興侶素直 Kōrogi Sunao?) - The boy who sits beside Nagato in class. He is rarely seen without a black surgical mask covering his face. He has a rather sickly appearance that many people are off-put by, and some even believe that he's a ghost or demon who has either possessed one of their classmates or has taken human form. Sunao doesn't really care about the specifics of the rumours, but he's hardly as sinister as they'd suggest. He's actually very smart and particularly well versed in folklores and local ghost stories. After accidentally learning of the cures' identities, he becomes an honorary member of the team.
    • CV: Hikaru Midorikawa

Yomi

  • Izanami (イザナミ Izanami?) - A motherly goddess who commands both creation and death. Once the wife of Izanagi and Japan's co-creator Izanagi, Izanami died a tragic death and was reduced to a decaying monster doomed to rot in the deepest parts of the land of the dead. For eons she has desired to return to Takamagahara, but is unable to due to being one with Yomi no Kuni. She resents her husband, as he willingly abandoned her after witnessing her monstrous new form.
    • CV: You Taichi
  • Pai (パイ Pai?) - Jamu's timid younger brother. After getting lost in Yomi no Kuni, Izanami took him under her wing, and now treats him like a son.
    • CV: Maria Naganawa

The Youkai Generals

    • CV: Akina Abe

Monster

  • Youkai (ヨーカイ Yōkai?) - Demons responsible for the strange happenings in Minahoro. They can be controlled by inhabitants of Yomi no Kuni, which is why they are usually kept sealed away in Takamagahara after being captured by Okuninushi (or historically, the Pretty Cures).
