Fresh Pretty Cure! (フレッシュプリキュア! Furesshu PuriKyua!) or Fresh PreCure!, is a Japanese anime series and the sixth in the Pretty Cure metaseries by Izumi Todo. Produced by Toei Animation, the series was directed by Junji Shimizu (who also directed Jigoku Sensei Nube The Movie) and written by Atsushi Maekawa (writer for Bakugan Battle Brawlers and Jewelpet). Character designs were created by Hisashi Kagawa, who previously designed the characters in the anime Saikano, Bomberman Jetters and Phantom Thief Jeanne. The series aired on TV Asahi's ANN network between February 1, 2009 and January 31, 2010, replacing Yes! PreCure 5 Go Go! in its initial time slot, and was succeeded by HeartCatch PreCure!. This is the first Pretty Cure series to extend the target-audience demographic beyond young girls, as well as the first to introduce CG-animated end credits focused on dance routines.
The series' main themes involve traditional playing-card suits, fruits and clovers, symbols that are associated with the cures, magical devices and attacks used by the series characters.
Love Momozono is a 14-year-old student at Yotsuba Junior High School who at her own expense, one day, visits a show by the well-known Trinity dance company and decides to become a dancer. At the show subordinates of the Labyrinth Kingdom are also present to collect the unhappiness of the audience. Love receives the power to change into Cure Peach and fights them. Soon afterwards, she is joined by her friends Miki (Cure Berry) and Inori (Cure Pine) and later onwards, Setsuna Higashi (Cure Passion) to begin her life as a protector of all worlds (and to compete in the dance contest).
