In the short, the characters of the Tropical-Rouge! Precure anime — Manatsu (Cure Summer), Sango (Cure Coral), Minori (Cure Papaya), Asuka (Cure Flamingo), and the mermaid girl Laura — are heading to the Dancing Island for a dance party when they have an unexpected encounter.
While supplies last, screenings of the feature and short nationwide will hand out 300,000 light-up "Dream Pendants" to filmgoers (junior high school age or younger). A batch of 40,000 advance ticket passes will go on sale on February 5 with a choice of two different "Triple! Precure Assemble Seal" sticker sets (pink "Dream Town" or blue "Dance Party" versions).
The Tropical-Rouge! Precure television series will premiere on February 28 on ABC TV and TV Asahi at 8:30 a.m. The show will have a theme of "the sea" and "makeup." The show will feature a transformation item shaped as a cosmetics compact. The anime's tagline is "Transform with makeup! Invincible motivation!"
The anime centers on Manatsu, who moves from her small island birthplace to a city and starts middle school. On the day she moves she meets a mermaid girl named Laura who is looking for the "legendary warriors" the Precures. Laura's hometown, the mermaid country of Grand Ocean, has been attacked by the "procastination witch," who has stolen the country's "motivation power."
