In this episode we saw a not-so common Cure tradition but one that pops up every now and then.
When we last left the Rangers Cure Star’s pendant started to glow. We resumed immediately after but had to wait a little before getting the answer. As seen above Lala pulled an all-nighter trying to solve the mystery of the pendant. Lady Computer calculated it very likely being connected to the Twinkle Rangers’ mission of finding the Star Princesses. Puruns thought that meant it was a Princess Tracker. Hikaru excitedly began the search but Lala wanted to analyze the pendant some more.
From there it was an argument between Hikaru wanting to go for broke and Lala preferring to plan things out first. Frontal Attack vs Strategic Planning basically. Hikaru got some interesting info but Lala didn’t think much of it. The two were about to clash when a beautiful angel graced them with her presence.

Meet Elena Amamiya. A senpai at Hikaru’s school. Having many younger siblings herself she’s more than familiar with seeing them bickering. Her advice was for the two calmly listen to what the other had to say. That of course would take a bit longer for the duo to grasp.
Hikaru went to find the rumored firefly the Star Donut Shop owner mentioned and Lala followed. The two continued to bicker. Hikaru was about to snap when Lala basically referred to her as just another weirdo Earthling. Luckily Fuwa’s sadness was enough to calm them down. The two were then able to calmly talk things through. They combined the info each one gathered to learn more about the pendant and the princesses. They quickly found what they’re looking for but…
A nearby Notrey swiped the magic pen and delivered it to the 2nd villain general of the season, Tenjou the Tengu. And yes I do find her more interesting than Kappard for obvious reasons. This time the enemy came prepared with a more strategic leader in Tenjou.
What they didn’t expect was the Twinkle Rangers also having a brainiac on their side.
Their team attack not only scattered the Notreys but also distracted Tenjou, allowing the Rangers to get the pen.
Thanks to the Taurus Pen’s power Cure Star’s Star Punch got a power boost forcing Tenjou to retreat.
I’m guessing each time they find a Zodiac Pen we’ll get a Fuwa transformation and a scene where they’re transported to the empty 12 Houses of the Zodiac and reawaken them one by one.
And that’s the Twinkle Rangers’ primary mission: Find the other 11 Zodiac Pens and reawaken all the Star Princesses.
The episode ended with our adorable duo making up and strengthening their relationship by ditching honorifics.
Cool episode. Hikaru X Lala got some brownie points and a more visually appealing villain general appeared.
My body is beyond ready for the next episode. Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssss.
