Regina: Who are you?!

Cure Ace: Love's trump card, Cure Ace!


Part 1

Title: Bring Back the Love! The Five Precure Oaths!

Rikka: Cure... Ace?

Davi: A warrior I've never seen before!

Regina: {\i1}What's with her?{\i0}
{\i1}Just looking at her makes me queasy.{\i0}
Begone from before me!

Cure Ace: Where were you looking at, I wonder?

Mammo: She's fast!

Cure Ace: I'll settle this with one blow!
Make up! Love Kiss Rouge!
I'll make your heart race!
Ace Shot!

Mana: Regina!

Bel: Cure Ace, you said?
I'll remember that name...

Mana: Wait!
Don't take Regina!

Regina: Precure...
I'll never forgive you for this!

Mana: Regina!

Rikka: Mana!

Cure Ace: You think that your tears alone can bring her back?
On your feet now!
This is no time to be faltering.

Rikka: Hang on a second!

Makoto: You don't understand!
You don't know how much Mana cares for Regina!

Alice: I don't know who you are or where you came from, but I won't permit such an offhand dismissal of Mana's feelings!

Cure Ace: The Five Precure Oaths!
One of which is, "Those who are Precure always keep going with pride and perseverance!"{She says 一つ here, but she's not saying number one, she's saying "One of which is..." The reason why I say that is in later eps, she says 一つ again, but says a different one, meaning that she's not meaning to number them off, but just say (as I already said) that it's just one of the five oaths. --K}
You need to become much stronger.

Mana: I can't...
I can't get any stronger than this...

Cure Ace: I have no choice then.{"You are hereby relieved of command." ;_; --K}
I will hang on to this until you have recovered your love.
Okay? Adieu!

Rikka: W-Wait!

Davi: She's gone...

Mana: I'm sorry, guys...
It's just like she said.
I'm not qualified to be a Precure.

Alice: Mana-chan...

Rikka: It's not your fault!
So please stop crying!

King Selfishe: My poor, poor daughter...
Go to sleep now...
Sleep deeply, and ever so deeply...
Who in blazes is this Cure Ace?

Bel: We do not know.
However, she {\i1}is{\i0} a fearsome opponent.

Leva: Seems like she's more than you can handle, Bel-chan!

Bel: Stop calling me that, Leva!
You guys haven't captured a single world yet, have you?

Gula: We've already wiped out three whole worlds!

Mammo: Gula!

Ira: They must have been boring worlds filled with monkeys or something.

Leva: That's quite the sweet mouth you have. {With a kinda, "Look at him, isn't he so precious? Trying to act all big and tough..." vibe, I think. w --K}

Gula: Want me to take a big bite outta your head?

Ira: Try it if you can!

King Selfishe: Cut it out!
Leva and Gula!
I'm counting on you to exterminate the Precure!

Leva + Gula: Yes sir!

Sign: Ohgai Shopping District Festival

Rikka + Makoto: Hello!

Kentarou + Ayumi: Welcome!

Rikka: That smells {\i1}good{\i0}!

Kentarou: Want a bite?

Rikka + Makoto: Thanks.

Makoto: Umm, how's Mana?

Ayumi: She's been holed up in her room since yesterday, and hasn't eaten a bite.

Makoto: I see...

Kentarou: Did something happen?

Rikka: Hmm? What do you mean?

Kentarou: Mana's not one to mope often.
I'm thinking she probably had a fight with Regina or something.

Rikka: It wasn't exactly a "fight", per se.

Kentarou: Huh?

Makoto: It'll be okay.
Mana's going through some hard times right now, but I'm sure she'll be back to her cheerful self in no time.

Kentarou: That's true.
Mana has some really good friends.

Makoto: Mana's probably depressed.

Raquel: That's not hard to believe.
Regina was snatched away, and on top of that...

Davi: ...Her Lovie was confiscated.

Rikka: Cure Ace... I wonder exactly who she is, anyway.

Alice: About that...

Sebastian: Since she appeared, we've been probing into the whereabouts of Cure Ace.
However, we haven't been able to garner any solid information.

Lance: She's quite the tenacious opponent.

Alice: What's this?
It's Mana-chan's grandfather.

Rikka + Alice + Makoto: Hello!

Grandfather: Oh, hello.

Rikka: What's up with those boxes?

Grandfather: There's a flea market at the festival.
Mana promised to help out, but...

Rikka: We'd love to help out, if that's okay.

Grandfather: Really?

Alice: Of course!

Makoto: Um... I'll help out, too.

Red shirt girl: I'll take this, Makopi!

Makoto: 100 yen please.

Light green shirt girl: We're rooting for you!

Yellow shirt boy: Keep up the good work!

Makoto: Thank you.

Rikka: Aren't they kind of missing the point?

Alice: I see no problem, as it's attracting a lively crowd.

Grandpa: That's right, things get lively when people gather together.
And a lively town is a happy town.

Alice: We should do our best to liven things up in Mana's place.

Rikka: You're right.

Regina: Mana... Mana!
It's you and me! How's it look?{にてる? here is asking, "How well does the image I have drawn resemble what it's supposed to be?" --K}
Look! Your randsell fits me perfectly.{I'm good with either "randoseru" or "randsell", but not "ransel" or "backpack", as randoseru has a specific connotation of the Japanese elementary school backpack. --K}
This pillow smells like you!

Mana: Regina...

Regina: Precure...
I'll never forgive you for this!{Flashback to earlier in the episode --K}

Cheryl: Mana, not eating anything's going to be bad for you.

Mana: I don't wanna.

Cheryl: Pull yourself together!
You are one of the legendary Precure!

Mana: Not anymore...

Ai-chan: Kewpietwump!

Mana: Wh-What?!
What was that just now?

Ayumi: It's kinda busy in the kitchen, so can you watch Ai-chan for a bit?{表 meaning "the back", but "the back" of a restaurant is the kitchen, so that's why I TLed it as such. --K}

Ai-chan: Kewpie!

Mana: Whaaaaa-?


Part 2

Mana: Ai-chan, why are you {\i1}here{\i0}?

Ayumi: Where else would your little sister be?

Mana: L-Little sister?!

Ayumi: Okay, thanks.

Cheryl: What's going on?

Mana: Well... that magic from earlier probably planted the idea in her head that she's my little sister.

Cheryl: Whaaa-?

Ai-chan: Mana...

Mana: Hmm? Ai-chan, did you just say my name?

Ai-chan: Ai-chan, Mana, togedder!{Trying to imitate the baby talk here with "togedder". --K}

Mana: Ai-chan!

Ai-chan: Yah!

Mana: Hmm?
A Care Lovie?
You want me to use this?

Ai-chan: Ai.
Mana cheer! Cheer!

Mana: Did you come to cheer me up?

Ai-chan: Ai!

Mana: Ai-chan!
You're taking care of {\i1}me{\10}.
Thank you, Ai-chan.

Mana: The festival certainly is bustling.
Regina'd probably be really happy to see this...
Yeah, like that'd happen...

Aguri: How long do you plan to keep sulking?

Ai-chan: Kewpie!

Mana: Ah! Ai-chan, wait!

Ai-chan: Kewpie-pie!

Aguri: You'll lose the thing you hold most dear if you stay like this, Aida Mana-san.

Male Fans: Can we have your autograph, please?

DB: Sorry, but today's not an official appearance, so no autographs.

Male Fans: Aw, man...

Shorter Male Fan: Oh well.

Taller Male Fan: At least we got to see Makopi in person.

Leva: There's no need to hold back...
We're gonna help your desires come true.

Gula: Rampage, and unleash the darkness within your heart!

Selfishe: Selfishe!

Marker Selfishe: Give us...

Shikishi Selfishe: Your autograph!{I switched these two lines around because it's more natural in English --K}

Sebastian: Everyone evacuate!

Makoto: Let's go, girls!

3 Girls: Precure Love Link!

3 Mascots: L O V E

Cure Diamond: We'll do what we can in her place, since Mana can't transform.

Rosetta + Sword: Yeah.

Leva: Oh, aren't you quick to the party!

Cure Sword: Who are you?!

Leva: I'm Leva.

Gula: I'm Gula.

Leva: Pleased to make your acquaintance.

Gula: I'll gobble you up if you're not watching.

Shikishi Selfishe: Give us...

Marker Selfishe: Your autograph!

Selfishe: Self self self...

Mana: You're...

Cheryl: Mana, there's a dark heartbeat!

Sword: Sparkle Sword has no effect!

Selfishe: Self self self...

Leva: It's time to end this...{Said over top of the previous line --K}

Mana: Let's go find the others, Cheryl.

Cheryl: But you can't transform!

Mana: I'm still going.
Thank you very much.

Aguri: Huh?

Mana: My head's been so full since Regina left that I was unable to see what was important.
It's not about what's the most important.
I just want to protect everyone's happiness!
The smiling faces of my comrades, of Regina, I'll protect them all!

Ai-chan: Kewpie!

Marker Selfishe: Give us...

Shikishi Selfishe: Your autograph!
Self self self...

Leva: You've made quite a nice fish print, or rather, Cure print.{魚拓 -- From some light research, gyotaku seems to be a loanword used in the art community for these prints. However, our audience likely don't have that kind of background, and using it as a loanword instead of translating it wouldn't lend itself to the pun Leva's making, so it was translated as "fish print". --K}

Shikishi Selfishe: Self?

Leva: You still hanging in there?

Cure Sword: There's no way we're giving up!

Cure Rosetta: We'll put in Mana's share too of protecting this town!

Cure Diamond: And everyone's happiness! {Yes, there's an "And" at the beginning of the sentence, that's because it's really a continuation of Rosetta's sentence. The verb "protect" in Rosetta's line above is actually implied in hers and stated in Rikka's. People completing each others sentences is annoying to TL, w. --K}

Leva: How dull...

Marker Selfishe: Selfishe!

Mana: HOLD ON JUST A MINUTE!{Yes, CAPS because Mana is yelling so hard that the force of her voice knocks the selfishe back, w. --K}

Cure Diamond: Mana!

Cure Rosetta: You shouldn't have come!

Cure Sword: You can't transform!

Mana: I'm not running away any longer!
I will fight to protect those dear to me!

Marker Selfishe: Selfishe!

Mana: Is that all you've got?!

Shikishi Selfishe:{Sputters}What're you doing?!

Marker Selfishe: What's your deal?

Shikishi Selfishe: You want a piece of me?!

Marker Selfishe: Bring it on!

Mana: Hah!

Cure Diamond: Nice work!

Cure Rosetta: Amazing as usual, Mana-chan.

Ai-chan: Ai!

Cure Sword: Mana...

Aguri: Well done, Aida Mana.
Or rather, Cure Heart!
The Five Precure Oaths!
One of which is...

Mana: "Those who are Precure always keep going with pride and perseverance!"

Cure Diamond: Don't tell me...

Aguri: It seems you've recovered your love.
Now, let's fight together!

Mana: Yeah!

Cheryl: Cheryl!

Mana: Precure Love Link!

Cheryl: L O V E

Cure Love: Abundant love, Cure Heart!

Cure Heart: Poor, sad, and lovelorn stationery...
I, Cure Heart, will make your heart beat with love again!

Cure Diamond: Cure Heart!

Leva: Make her face as black as the others'!

Aguri: Can you really do that, I wonder?

Selfishe: Self?

Aguri: Let's go, Ai-chan!

Ai-chan: Kewpie!

Aguri: Precure Dress Up!

Ai-chan: Kewpietwump!

Cure Ace: Love's trump card, Cure Ace!
Beauty is the testament of justice.
I'll shoot straight through your heart with a single wink!

Cure Diamond: Whaaa-!?

Cure Ace: Let's go!

Cure Heart: Right!

Shikishi Selfishe: Give us...

Marker Selfishe: Your autograph! Your autograph!
Self... Self!

Cure Ace: You ready?

Cure Heart: You bet!

Cure Ace: Make up! Love Kiss Rouge!
I'll make your heart race!
Ace Shot!

Shikishi Selfishe: Love! Love Loooooove!

Cure Heart: Precure Heart Shoot!

Marker Selfishe: Love! Love Loooooove!

Male Fans: Huh?

Gula: Cure Ace...

Leva: We won't go so easy on you next time.

Cure Diamond: Cure Heart!
Thank goodness, I'm so glad!

Cure Heart: Sorry to worry you...

Cure Sword: It's fine, we're just glad your back to your normal cheerful self...

Cure Rosetta: Indeed.

Cure Ace: This is no time to be celebrating.
Your ordeal has only just begun.
You will need to quickly ascend to the stage I am on.
I'll be waiting for you. Adieu!

Cure Heart: Cure Ace...

Cure Rosetta: Who on Earth is she?



Makoto: I'm going to retire from being an idol.
I just can't handle singing anymore.{I heard だから、もう歌もたまんない。 Where たまんない is a slang form of たまらない, meaning "intolerable" or "unbearable". --K}

Mana: You can't quit singing, Makopi!
Okay! Starting Operation: Make Her Want to Sing Again!

Alice: I'm sure a full orchestra will work wonderfully.

Rikka: That'll just make it harder for her to sing.

Mana: Well then, if the Princess asks her to, I'm sure she'll sing.

Rikka: Huh? The Princess? What are you planning?

{\i1}DokiDoki! Precure:{\i0}

Next episode title: A Shock! Makopi's Idol Retirement Announcement!

Mana: Be still my beating heart!
