Magic Girls Precure! tells a tale across two vastly different worlds. Aside from our realm, a land known only as The Magical World exists as a place where witches and wizards call their own. The magically gifted refer to the world of humans as “Nashi Mahou-kai”, or “The World Without Witchraft.” Mirai Asahina is a 13-year-old girl who lives in the world of humans.

One day, a strange twist of fate sees Mirai meeting Riko, a girl of her own age from the world of witches. Riko was sent to the human world to find a powerful artifact known as the “Rincle Stone Emerald.” One thing leads to another, and the two girls discover that they can transform into legendary warriors Cure Miracle and Cure Magical by holding each others’ hands. With this knowledge in-hand, Mirai makes the decision to travel to the Magical World, so she can enroll in the Witches’ academy, and to be close to her new bestie Riko.
