Let's Mirage! Pretty Cure (レッツミラージュ！プリキュア Rettsu Mirāju! Purikyua?, Pretty Cure Mirage Bloom in the English dub) is the first fan season created by Cure Believe. It began airing February 9, 2014. The themes for the series are "mirage" and "flower". In the English dub, it is the second Pretty Cure series, after the original Pretty Cure.
One day in the Mirage Kingdom, a villain by the name of Taika destroyed everything and everyone living there. One citizen, who was princess Cure Moonlight Mirage, tried to defend, but failed. She, along with Kira, escaped to Earth. She tells three other mascots to search for the other Mirage Pretty Cures.
That is what Hanasaki Cherry dreamed about. Before she knows it, she meets a mascot from the dream by the name of Hana. Hana explains to Cherry that was no dream. It was informing her of what was happening to the kingdom and what will later happen to Earth, and Taika will take people's Mirage Souls and turn them into Kurokokoros!
When her friend's Mirage Soul is taken out, Cherry can not believe it is all true! Hana turns into a Mirage Module for Cherry to transform into Cure Blossom Mirage! It is her duty to help find the other Mirage Cures, as well as to protect everybody.
After a strange dream Hanasaki Cherry had, she meets the mascot Hana as Daisy's Mirage Soul is taken out. With the monster, Kurokokoro, in sight, Hana helps Cherry transform into Cure Blossom Mirage! Cherry, along with best friend Daisy, shy transfer student Sunny, and the mysterious Cure Moonlight Mirage, they will save our world from the hands of darkness!
English Dub Version
Cherry Hanford is your average 14 year old. Like any, she's not very good at her studies, but she is more of the sports type.
At least, she's normal until after having a dream about a princess's failure to protect her kingdom. The next day, Cherry meets a mascot from that kingdom, Hana. With the help of her partner, Cherry can transform into one of the legendary Pretty Cure, Cure Blossom Mirage! But there's still three more to find, and one of them is the princess! Cherry will find the remaining members of the Pretty Cure and save the world from evil!

Mirage Module - This is the item Cherry and Daisy use to transform by shouting, "Pretty Cure! Let's Mirage!"
Shining Mirage Module - This is the item Sunny uses to transform. The name fits her theme accurately, but she transforms the same way by shouting, "Pretty Cure! Let's Mirage!"

I do not own Pretty Cure. All rights belong to Toei Animation, so this is unlikely to be the series after Doki Doki! Pretty Cure. -wishes the show would still come later, just with different civilian and villain names, as well as song names-
- Let's Mirage! Pretty Cure marks the beginning of Cure Believe's fan series creations!
- Every year since 2014, the anniversary of Let's Mirage! Pretty Cure has been celebrated with series which also became long-running series:
- Alongside Shining Jewels Pretty Cure, Let's Mirage! Pretty Cure will reboot in 2017, although under the same name.
- Let's Mirage! Pretty Cure has many firsts:
- No hair ornaments for all characters
- Voice changes during transformation
- Outfits are different from the usual ones
- Cure names have been used before, but not for real Cures
- Share surnames of previous Cures
- Has one villain to summon a monster
- All Cures in civilian form have the same eye color
- In two episodes, two of the Cures (Marine Mirage and Sunshine Mirage) were brainwashed, and the other two had to fight against them to save them.
- Sunny's character is highly based on myself: shy, a transfer student, and attends classes with new best friends.
- Although there are many similarities to Heartcatch, these that are listed are only a few similarities:
- The beginning of the first episode is also in the lead Cure's dream.
- The last Cure joins the team around the middle of the series.
- All have dark counterparts, although Heartcatch's dark counterparts, the Mirage Cures, are the Cures of Let's Mirage!, who also have the Kuro Cures.
- In their super forms, their Cure names start with "Super".
- Let's Mirage! Pretty Cure is very similar to Sailor Suit Pretty Cure. In fact, Sailor Suit Pretty Cure is half-based on this.
- Let's Mirage! Pretty Cure has many similarities, coincidentally, to Happiness Charge Pretty Cure!, the official 2014 Pretty Cure.
- Both series have four main Cures of the same color schemes (pink - Blossom Mirage and Lovely, blue - Marine Mirage and Princess, yellow - Sunshine Mirage and Honey, and purple - Moonlight Mirage and Fortune)
- Both have Cures that gained their powers prior to the beginning of the story (Moonlight Mirage and Princess)
- Coincidentally, they are both princesses
- Both have female main villains (albeit Queen Mirage was not the true one)
- Both have a character named Queen Mirage (Let's Mirage case is a minor character, while Happiness Charge case is the primary main villain)
- One of Cure Lovely's secondary forms is Cherry Flamenco, which happens to contain the name of Let's Mirage! Pretty Cure's lead Cure
- This form has a red theme color, the same as Cherry's theme color as a Pretty Cure
- The Cures in both series have three shared colors in their outfits: white, black, and their theme color
- There are shared personalities between some Cures (Hime and Sunny, and Iona and Rose)
- At least one Cure has been brainwashed
