Toei Animation today updated the official website for the next 14th PreCure TV anime series, Kirakira☆PreCure A La Mode, revealing the visuals and names of its five main girls: Usami Ichika/Cure Whip, Himari Arisugawa/Cure Custard, Aoi Tategami/Cure Gelato, Yukari Kotozume/Cure Macaron, and Akira Kenjyo/Cure Chocolat. And it is confirmed to premiere in Japan on February 5, 2017.
The story premise is written as follows:
The protagonist Ichika Usami is a second year middle school student who loves sweets. When making a
shortcake for her mother who will return from abroad soon, she encounters Pekolin who is very hungry.
The shortcake made by Ichika is filled with her heart, and the "Kirakiraru" energy lodged in sweets is
spilled out from it. Then a bad fairy who is looking for "Kirakiraru" appears and makes the cake all black.
To protect the cake filled with her feeling of love, Ichika transforms into a legendary Patissier PreCure,
