But when the Kurogane started advancing to her, Yuuka suddenly says she will protect her and a Changer Brace appeared, and Yuuka refused to transform, but after realizing what the transformaion phrase was, Yuuka transformed in Cure Mirage, but stood int he alley way shocked. To help Yuuka, Etsuko transformed into Cure Change but was easily defeated by the Kurogane.
