nihongo|"Yes! PreCure 5"|Yes! プリキュア5|Iesu! PuriKyua Faibu|Lit. "Yes! Pretty Cure 5" is the fourth "Pretty Cure" anime series by Toei Animation. The series started broadcasting on February 4, 2007 and ended on January 27, 2008 in Japan. The 5 in the title refers to the fact that this Pretty Cure team has 5 members.

Its sequel "Yes! PreCure 5 Go Go!" started its run on February 3, 2008. New characters, including a new Pretty Cure warrior, are introduced.

The anime is much very lighter, and more kid-friendly in tone than some of the previous Pretty Cure anime, and it is targeted at a much younger audience in that way.

In November 2007, a Yes! Precure 5 movie was released in Japan under the title Yes! Precure 5! Kagami no Kuni no Miracle Daibouken! (Miracle's Big Adventure Through The Looking Glass)

Yes! Pretty Cure 5

Nozomi Yumehara, a regular student, finds a magical book called the Dream Collet in the library and meets Coco, a creature from the Palmier Kingdom. Nozomi decides to help restore his world, which has been destroyed by an organization called the Nightmare Company, by completing the Dream Collet and finding the 55 Pinkies to make any wish come true. By making her decision to help Coco, she proves she has the heart to be a Pretty Cure and is given her Pinky Catch from a pink butterfly letting her transform into Cure Dream. Meanwhile, the Nightmares are fighting the cures to steal the Dream Collet and defeat Pretty Cure. To help, she must choose a team of four other students to be Pretty Cure so that she may help protect the Dream Collet and save Nuts from his entrapment within. Together with Cure Rouge, Cure Lemonade, Cure Mint and Cure Aqua, they form the Pretty Cure Team.

Yes! Pretty Cure 5 GoGo!

The Cure Rose Garden has always been concealed from human eye. Flora, the area's guardian, watches over it and makes sure the path to the secret area doesn't appear. However Eternal, an art organization known for amassing treasure and artwork from many worlds, is trying to get to the garden. To do this, they first invade the Palmier Kingdom and four other kingdoms. Flora senses her approaching danger and sends a letter to Nozomi and the Pretty Cure 5. Their new mission is to find the four rulers that have fled from their kingdoms since they hold the Rose Garden Keys.

To perform this mission, Nozomi and the others regain their ability to transform into PreCure Five and a new heroine; Milky Rose, appears.

Formed a crush on Coco (in his human form) at first sight, and her feelings grow as the series progresses.

Because she is always busy and is now acting in a TV drama, she has no friends outside of the Cures. Before she joined the team, she learned of Nozomi's and Rin's identities, and was not nearly as shocked as the others, likely because the drama that she had been cast in appears to be based on the Splash Star series. Her mom died when she was young. She is half Japanese (from her mom) and half French (from her dad).

She is a volunteer at the school library, along with Karen/Cure Aqua, and often spends her time there writing stories. Her dream is to become a writer, and she exhibits particular talent in this: Nuts praised her first completed story (upon the 7th revision), and he does not give praise lightly. She has romantic feelings for Nuts, which she expresses in the form of her second novel. Her parents own a traditional Japanese sweetshop.:The green-clad Cure Mint is the counterpart of Cure Aqua.

She misses them, but will not ask for them to come home for fear of disturbing their work, so in spite of her wealth and popularity she is often lonely. Komachi is her best friend and fellow student council member.:Seen around school as cool and inspiring, most of the students look up to her. She, as Nozomi learns, is the most trustworthy Cure. In the beginning, she is reluctant to join the Cure team. This reluctance and lack of team spirit prevented her from transforming in episode 5. In episode 6, as the girls are being manhandled by a pinky-turned-Kowaina, Karen stands up to her friends, vowing to protect them regardless of whether or not she can transform. The butterfly that eluded her previously reappears and successfully lands on her wrist, enabling Karen to transform to Cure Aqua. :As Cure Aqua; counterpart of Cure Mint, she wears deep blue in her outfit, resembling Cure Mint's outfit.

Her civilian name is Mimino Kurumi and her name backwards has the same pronunciation with nihongo|"Miruku no Mimi"|ミルクの耳 meaning "Milk's ears." She has long, violet, curly hair and fuchsia eyes. Transformed, she wears violet with blue flower decorations. A calm, smart character, her cool persona acts as a mask to her bizarre personality.

:She is actually Milk in human form, who got her powers from a blue colored seed left behind after the events of episode 7. Kurumi makes her official appearance as Milky Rose in episode 10 to help the PreCure. Her civilian form is introduced in episode 12, and we first see her transformation in episode 11. Milk/Kurumi can't stay in this form for too long, as it drains her energy and reverts her back to mascot form, as seen in episode 14.

Mascots

;nihongo|Coco|ココ|Koko / nihongo|Kōji Kokoda|小々田 コージ|Kokoda Kōji:anime voice|Takeshi Kusao:One of the mascot creatures from the Palmier Kingdom, Coco is a yellow-furred tanuki searching for the Dream Collet to restore his kingdom. He can transform into a human, and later becomes a teacher at Nozomi's school to keep watch of her. Coco has expressed that he has strong feelings for Nozomi, but is hesitant to act on them because of the knowledge that they will have to go their separate ways as soon as his kingdom is restored. Fittingly, his human name "Kokoda" sounds like the way one would say "I'm Coco" in Japanese.:Halfway through the series, it is revealed that he and Nuts are actually princes from separate parts of the Palmier Kingdom.:He is given Palmier's crown in episode 24 of Yes! PreCure 5 Go Go, allowing PreCure 5 to use Cure Fleur.

;nihongo|Nuts|ナッツ|Nattsu / nihongo|Natts|夏|Nattsu:anime voice|Miyu Irino:The other creature from the Palmier Kingdom, Nuts is a brown squirrel that can transform into a human, the clerk of a jewelry shop called Nuts House. In the beginning of the series, he is sealed within the Dream Collet and can only be freed after the 5 Cures have received their powers. Coco describes him as a good friend, comparable to the relationship between Nozomi and Rin. In Episode 7 Nuts is released from the Dream Collet and is revealed to have an aloof, somewhat cold personality. Because of the events of his past he has difficulty trusting anyone, and did not trust Coco at first. His human form is so good looking that it causes the other Pretty Cure girls to blush, as well as most other girls who see him.:Komachi exhibits romantic feelings for Nuts, and though his stoicism does not make him an easy character to read, it is made clear that he feels a special bond with Komachi.:Some episodes of the series, as well as a set of character cards, give his human name as "Natts"; however, this is generally accepted as Engrish.:He is given Palmier's crown in episode 31 of Yes! PreCure 5 Go Go, allowing Milky Rose to use the Milky Mirror.

;nihongo|Milk|ミルク|Miruku / nihongo|Kurumi Mimino|美々野 くるみ|Mimino Kurumi:anime voice|Eri Sendai:Debuts in episode 21. A white-and-pink flop-eared rabbit who, unlike Nuts and Coco, is unable to transform into a human. Milk and Nozomi are always in constant disagreements over food, especially chocolate. In Gogo she obtained the ability to turn into a human, her alias Kurumi Mimino, after picking up a glowing blue seed in episode 7. Milk may also have a crush on Coco, as she has shown affection around him, and is jealous when Nozomi shows affection to him.:Like Coco is close to Nozomi and Nuts is close to Komachi, Milk and Karen share a close friendship.

;nihongo|Syrup|シロップ|Shiroppu / nihongo|Shiroh Amai|甘井 シロー|Amai Shirō:anime voice|Romi Paku:Debuts in episode 1 of the sequel. A tan feathered, bird-like mascot that can turn to human form and take on an aerial transport form when necessary. He is slightly arrogant and a delivery-boy. Syrup once worked for Eternal, the villains of the sequel, because he was looking for something in the Cure Rose Garden and needed to get there. He quit for reasons currently unknown.:Syrup has amnesia and forgot who he was. He wanted to find the Cure Rose Garden so he can regain his memories.:Syrup may be developing a bond with Urara, as he is concerned about her when he sees her crying in episode 18 and helped to deliver her script in episode 4.

Four Rulers

:In the sequel, the Kings and Queens of four Kingdoms hold the Rose Garden Keys. For this, Eternal attacks their Kingdoms and they flee. Once a ruler is found, he or she must stay in the Rose Pact for a certain amount of time to recover. After which, they can go back and restore the Kingdom destroyed. Each have a special power that benefits themselves and the team, and the rulers can communicate with their crowns.

;nihongo|King Donuts|ドーナツ国王|Donatsu Kokuō:anime voice|Yasunori Matsumoto:The first ruler to be found. A small, blue Dragon, he is the ruler of the Donut Kingdom, which is east of Palmier. Dignified, he is smart and arrogant. He appreciates people who work hard for others. Should he be attacked, he will stun the enemy with a blue light emitting from his hands. The King leaves in episode 14, but not before giving a calling card.

;nihongo|Queen Babaroa|パパロア女王|Babaroa Joō:anime voice|Mari Adachi:Second ruler holding a Rose Garden Key. She is a pink and red colored bird, the Queen of the Babaroa Kingdom, which is south of Palmier. Sociable and energetic, but very talkative to the point of causing problems for others. Her power allows communication between PreCure 5 by making their transformation items act as a mobile phone. In episode 25, she gives her calling card and goes back to her kingdom.

;nihongo|Princess Crepe|クレープ王女|Kurēpu Ōjo:anime voice|Kumiko Nishihara:The third ruler with a Rose Garden Key. She is a lemon chiffon, orange striped tiger. Is in love with Coco and claims to be his fiancee. Her Kingdom, the Crepe Kingdom, is west of Palmier. She hopes that her marriage to Coco will unify both kingdoms. Crepe's power activates the Milky Note, a laptop. Crepe leaves in episode 34, remaining friends with Coco after he rejects her confession, and giving her calling card.

Villains

Eternal

;nihongo|Anacondy|アナコンディ|Anakondi:anime voice|Kaori Yamagata:She's kind of an administrator among Eternal, always telling her members what they should do and controlling rare objects they bring her. She also always claims report papers from her members and is very strict to them. In fact she seems to be doing all that only for the boss of Eternal, the director.

;nihongo|Isohgin|イソーギン|Isōgin:anime voice|Chō:Isohgin is one of the "nightmare-duo" from Eternal that are said to be the best hunters there. He is the tall one of the two and mostly just repeats what Yadohkan says. Together, the two of them transform into a weird creature looking like a leg-less human creature on a cancer.

;nihongo|Yadokhan|ヤドカーン|Yadokān:anime voice|Kenji Nomura:Yadokhan is the partner of Isohgin and the small, fat one of the two. He mainly does the talking, although he is also very short of words. Together, the two of them transform into a weird creature looking like a leg-less human creature on a cancer.

;nihongo|Mucardia|ムカーディア|Mukādia:The currently newest member of Eternal is an extremely good-looking guy. He uses his good looks to approach Precure and find out something about them. He hasn't revealed his monster form yet and watches the fight of Precure vs Hoshiina from far away so they don't see him.

;nihongo|Shibiretta|シビレッタ|Shibiretta:This old woman wearing kind of a mushroom on her head manipulates fairy tales (European and also Japanese ones) to fight Precure. To do so, she pulls the girls into the world of the fairy tales where she can find ideal material to create a Hoshiina. She does not like Anacondy very much.

;nihongo|Scorp|スコルプ|Sukorupu:anime voice|Takehito Koyasu:Scorp is the first Eternal member to be shown in the series. He seems to know a lot about Syrup and his circumstances. When coming to fight, he transforms into a scorpion. Although they do not get along too well at first, he gradually becomes kind of friends with Bunbee.

;nihongo|Nebatakos|ネバタコス|Nebatakosu:anime voice|Bin Shimada:This guy is the third Eternal member (not counting Bunbee as one).

;nihongo|Hoshiina|ホシイナー|Hoshiinā:anime voice|Shinya Fukumatsu:The monster in the new season is called forth by throwing a yellow ball onto the object that then turns into a Hoshiina. The name is from "hoshii", which means "I want this".

Nightmare

;nihongo|Kawarino|カワリーノ|Kawarīno:anime voice|Hiro Yuki:Desparaia's secretary. He conveys her intentions and orders to other Nightmares, and report to her on the missions. Most of the other Nightmares fear him. His name may be based on japanes "kawari" which means substitute.

;nihongo|Hadenya|ハデーニャ|Hadēnya:anime voice|Kazue Komiya:One of the villains appearing in the second part of the season. She can transform into a bird-like, very colorful costume reminding of Brazil Carnival. She likes to take what she wants and often lets Bunbee serve her in some way.

Bloody can transform into a bat-like creature, shooting sonic waves at his enemies. In the first place, however, he tries to win by persuasion and talking, only using Kowaina to help him. He always uses rooms or places to transform into Kowaina rather than objects.

;nihongo|Girinma|ギリンマ|Girinma:anime voice|Nobuyuki Hiyama:The first of the villains to appear. He can transform into a deadly praying mantis with arms that slice. He greatly fears his superiors, and is often threatened by Bunbee.

Many episodes featuring her have her pulling the girls into the sewers to fight, for reasons unknown. Her name is based on greek "arachne" (spider).

;nihongo|Kowaina|コワイナー|Kowainā :anime voice|Chihiro Sakurai:A Kowaina is a catastrophic entity that can be inserted into any inanimate object, causing it to "come alive" and cause destruction. The villains often use it as both an offense and a defense to add more helpers onto their side during the battle. The name is a pun off of the Japanese adjective, "kowai na", which means "frightening."

;nihongo|Desparaia|デスパライア|Desuparaia:anime voice|Kazuko Sugiyama:The top of the Nightmares. She intends to gain eternal life to bring despair to all the world, and has ordered her subordinates to obtain the Dream Collet.

He is very respectful to her and calls her 'ojou-sama' ("young lady"), but he also seems to be fond of her, like a father.

*Butterflies have been incorporated as the transformation theme for this series.
*Merchandise preorders and advertisements have released this information about the magical items::The cards used this season will be shaped like regular playing cards, much like the original Futari wa Pretty Cure;:Other items include the "Pinky Catch", a jewel box to keep Pinkies in that doubles as a transformation item, and the "Dream Collet", the book that Nozomi needs to complete. The Pinky Catch is romanized in some official merchandise as Pinky Catchu, but Catch makes more sense considering its use.:Transformation items are watches rather than cellular telephones.
*In contrast to the transformations in the earlier series, it should be noted that the girls can be by themselves to transform.
*The girls transform with the phrase "Pretty Cure, Metamorphose!", referring back to the butterfly theme.
*This series seems to take place in a French Country, and makes references to many words and phrases in French. For instance:
**The Palmier Kingdom's name comes from the French word for "coconut tree", hence the characters Coco and Nuts. "Palmiers" is also a french kind of bakery that connects the name of the kingdom to the also bakery-related surrounding kingdoms.
**The beauty shop run by Nozomi's mother is called "Espoir", which is the French word for hope.
**École Cinq Lumièrs is a direct translation of "school of the five lights".
*In Episode 11, Mint and Aqua's attacks are used not just for attacking, but for helping others as well. Mint uses "Pretty Cure Mint Protection!" to bounce the falling Rouge and Lemonade, and Aqua follows up with "Pretty Cure Aqua Stream!" to send Rouge and Lemonade down a river and back on the ground.
