Years after Dune's defeat, the Great Tree of Hearts is attacked by a dark Cure again, this time one called Cure Fade. One of the surviving fairies, Petal, tries her best to protect the tree but is defeated. Days later, Aira Yumetsuki is getting ready for her last year of Myōdō Academy's Junior High School. She was picked on the last day of her second year to be the vice-school council president. She is showing the first years around the year when a monster came and attacked Aira and the group of first years. Aira stands up to the monster and braces herself for a deadly blow, only for Petal to rescue her, granting her the ability to become a new Pretty Cure, Cure Saffron.
