Toei Animation posted a "A Message for Passing the Baton from Cure Miracle to Cure Whip" video on Saturday and a story introduction trailer earlier this month.

The anime, which is the 14th entry in the Precure animated series, will premiere on February 5 at 8:30 a.m. on the ABC and TV Asahi channels and their affiliates. The show's theme is a crossover of colorful sweets with cool and cute animals. The main characters run a sweet shop and must face off against evil fairies to protect their beloved confections.

Akira Tanaka, Risa Endō, and Yu Kaminoki (Go! Princess Precure, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal) are producing the series. Kōhei Kureta (One Piece Film Z assistant director) and Yukio Kaizawa (Digimon Frontier, Jigoku Sensei Nube director) are the series directors, and Jin Tanaka (Go! Princess Precure, Anne-Happy) is handling the series composition. Yuuki Hayashi (My Hero Academia, Death Parade) is composing the music, and Marie Ino (Death Note, Heartcatch Precure! key animator) is designing the characters. Cake designer and café owner Junko Fukuda is serving as the "sweets supervisor" for the series.

Yuri Komagata (Mangirl!) is performing the anime's opening theme song "SHINE!! Kirakira ☆ Precure a la Mode," and Kanako Miyamoto (Yes! Precure 5) is performing the ending theme song "Let's La Cooking ☆ Showtime."

Kodansha's Nakayoshi magazine will launch the Kirakira ☆ Precure a la Mode manga series in its March issue, which ships on February 3. Manga artist duo Futago Kamikita (Pretty Cure, Dokidoki! Precure) is drawing the series based on an original concept by Izumi Todo (the collective pseudonym for Toei Animation's staff).

The previous Precure (Pretty Cure) series, Mahō Tsukai Precure!, premiered in February 2016. The Eiga Mahō Tsukai Precure! Kiseki no Henshin! Cure Mofurun! film opened in October in Japan.

The 2012-2013 Precure anime series Smile Precure! has been localized in English as Glitter Force, and is available streaming on Netflix.
