Let's Mirage! Pretty Cure (レッツミラージュ！プリキュア Rettsu Mirāju! Purikyua?) is created by Cure Believe. It will begin airing February 9, 2014, replacing Doki Doki! Pretty Cure in its initial timeslot. The theme for the series is mirage.
Note: The official 2014 Pretty Cure is called "Happiness Charge Pretty Cure!" Still, please enjoy this fan series!
One peaceful day in the Mirage Kingdom, a villain by the name of Taika destroyed everything and everyone living there. One citizen, who was princess Cure Moonlight Mirage, tried to defend, but failed. She, along with Kira, escaped to Earth. She tells three other mascots to search for the other Mirage Pretty Cures.
That is what Hanasaki Cherry dreamed about. Before she knows it, she meets a mascot from the dream by the name of Hana. Hana explains to Cherry that was no dream. It was informing her of what was happening to the kingdom and what will later happen to Earth, and Taika will take people's Mirage Souls and turn them into Kurokokoros!
When her friend's Mirage Soul is taken out, Cherry can not believe it is all true! Hana turns into a Mirage Module for Cherry to transform into Cure Blossom Mirage! It is her duty to help find the other Mirage Cures, as well as to protect everybody.

Cherry is a 14 year old student who attends Sakura Middle & High School's middle school division and is the leader of the series. Although she can be energetic in sports, she doesn't study well, and usually gets low grades in school, which also leads to not wanting to make many friends due to her only interest being in sports. Her alter ego is Cure Blossom Mirage and her theme color is scarlet.
Kurumi Daisy (来海デイジー Kurumi Deijī?)
Voiced by: Tanaka Rie
Daisy is a 13 year old student who attends the same classes as Cherry. Daisy likes to hang out with her friends while shopping and doesn't care about school.

Taika is the main villain of the series. Her goal is not just to destroy the Mirage Kingdom, but the planet Earth as well. Her biggest rival appears to be Cure Moonlight Mirage, after the events of the destruction of the kingdom. Her name is her short version of "kuro taiyou", but reversed and an "a" is added.

The Kurokokoros are the monsters of the day, created by a person's black Mirage Soul. They are similar to Jikochuus from Doki Doki! Pretty Cure. Later on, some can appear as both an illusion and the actual, confusing the Cures. The name means "black heart".
A handful of people have become Kurokokoros:
- Episode 1: Kurumi Daisy - One of Cherry's hyper, shopping addict classmates who later becomes Cure Marine Mirage
- Episode 2: Kano Miyu - A young girl who couldn't find her parents at a park
- Episode 3: Isobe Kiyabu - An adult who is dealing with the divorce of her and her husband
- Episode 4: Anastasia Johnson - A British transfer student who is struggling with Japanese
