Dancing Stars Pretty Cure episodes

Once upon a time, there was a kingdom called the Star Kingdom. Everyone who lived there was happy, and led a long and healthy life. It was ruled over by the Six Witches of Balance: Astra, the Witch of Kindness, Nekane, the Witch of Despair, Bahija, the Witch of Joy, Hanan, the Witch of Compassion, Meri, the Witch of Rebelliousness, and Ulyssa, the Witch of Hate. Everything was in peace and harmony. One day, Nekane grew rebellious, and her sister Meri saw a change in this. Meri had called Astra to find out what happened, Nekane grew furious, and she decided that she wouldn't sit still and listen to her older sisters. She used her powers and destroyed the Star Kingdom, and the five other witches were frightened, so they sent a fairy named Peridot to find warriors to defend their kingdom, and once Peridot was gone, the five witches fled to Earth, in search of the legendary treasures, the Jewels of Dance, Dress Up Cards and the Magical Dance Tiaras. Meanwhile at night on Earth, a 14-year-old girl named Yamamoto Hitomi was standing on her balcony, watching the stars and singing her favourite song. Suddenly, there was a bright flash on the stars, and the flash grew bigger, into a pink light and circled around Hitomi's room. The light landed in Hitomi's hands, and turned into a white perfume bottle with pink swirled lines on it, with blue, yellow and purple pearls around it. The next day, Hitomi was walking home from school, thinking the same question that she had her mind on all day: what was that perfume bottle? Just then, a fox jumped out of the bushes, and began to talk! The fox said that she was a fairy named Peridot, and that she was looking for the legendary warriors, Pretty Cure. Just then, a monster appeared, and when Peridot saw that Hitomi had a Dance Perfume, she told her that she was a Chosen One, a legendary Pretty Cure warrior. Hitomi then used the Dance Perfume to transform into Cure Destiny! Now being joined by Koizumi Hotaru/Cure Belief, Kawaguchi Madoka/Cure Sparkle and Kiyomizu Sumiko/Cure Glimmer, the girls must join forces in order to defeat Nekane and restore the peace and harmony of the Star Kingdom!
