When Harumi first met Akiyama Akiko, she was actually busy with her soccer club and tried to get back to it, no matter how badly she wanted to get to know Akiko. However, the next few days, she realised that Tachibana Chiharu was bullying her, and told Chiharu that she disapproved of it. Harumi tried to get Chiharu to stop, but Chiharu refused, and bullied Akiko even more. The next day, when she got to school, Harumi was surprised that Akiko and Chiharu had become friends, and even wore matching necklaces. Harumi smiled, and went up to them and said that she approved of their friendship, which made the two girls even closer.
Meeting Emi & becoming Cure Soul
The next week, Harumi had arrived at the soccer grounds and says that she is the final substitute that Chiharu's soccer team needs because three of them are away sick. When a boy was falling in despair because he was sitting out the next match, Black appeared and stole the boy's Heart Rainbow and merged it with a soccer ball, turning it into a Sakebi. Akiko, Chiharu and Emiko transformed into Cure Legend, Cure Miracle and Cure Fantasy, but the three were defeated by the Sakebi. Then, Harumi runs up to the girls and shouts out loud that no one hurts her teammates. Then a little fairy named Emi flies down to Harumi and asks if Harumi had any dreams about a girl named Cure Love, she said that she did, and Emi began to glow, and changed into a Shining Heart Necklace. Emi put herself around Harumi's neck and helped her to transform into the fourth Pretty Cure, the Pretty Cure of Courage, Cure Soul. With her attack, Soul Strike, Cure Soul purified the Sakebi and returned the Heart Rainbow to the boy. Harumi then became better friends with Akiko, Chiharu and Emiko.
