Apple Salsa

Apple Salsa (アップルサルサ Appuru Sarusa?) is the second Form Change that Cure Cherry uses but fails at using the powers on her first go. This Form Change's power is based of fire. She can use the attack, Sweetheart Fireblaster, in this form.


  • Passionate Rose Attack (パッショネートローズアタック Passhonēto Rōzu Atakku?) - Her first solo finisher, where she uses her LovePreBrace to summon a pink colored rose, in which she kicks it hard towards the enemy, eventually purifying it. She first uses it in episode 1.
  • Poppin' Shield (ポッピンシールド Poppin Shīrudo?) - Marshmallow Pop's main attack, that she first performed in episode 6.
  • Sweetheart Fireblaster (スイートハートファイアブラスター Suītohāto Faiaburasutā?) - Apple Salsa's main attack, that she first performed in episode 9.


Akamiya (赤宮?): Aka (?) means 'red' while Miya (?) means either 'temple' or 'shrine'.

Sakura (さくら?): Sakura has one basic meaning which is 'cherry blossom', which is normally written as 桜 in Kanji. Sakura may be her name since it refers to how she is represented by cherry blossoms.


Sakura's voice actress, Minase Inori, has participated in several image songs for the character she voices. Many of them include duets with Asumi Kana, who voices Hirata Risa, and Hikasa Yōko, who voices Yozora Chouko.
