 Akaihi Asa (赤い火朝 Akaihi Asa) is one of the main cures of Elemental Circle ~ Pretty Cure. She is the lead Cure of the team who never gives up (or admits defeat).

Her catchphrase is "Never Give Up!" (決してあきらめない!Kesshite akiramenai!)


Asa wears a dark red blouse with short sleeves and in the middle of the shirt, there is a white heart. She wears  gray shorts and red sneakers. Her hair is tied in a ponytail.

As Cure Sunset, her hair turns crimson and longer, as her eyes turn red. Her hair goes free with only a red butterfly shaped barrette. Her clothes has a midriff which is a red top with some white and black transparent ribbons. Her skirt is black with some stripes in red on her skirt. She wears black boots with white laces. Also, there is a white ribbon in the middle of her chest. 


Asa is very stubborn and never give up on her dreams. She also is terrible at studying.


Coming Soon


Kaminari Dia - They became friends in episode 2. Dia talks a lot which makes Asa very angry.

Chikyū Kusa - Asa didn't find Kusa since episode 4. Kusa was controlled by Seigyo in one of the episodes, and then Asa saves her, making them become friends.

Fuyusato Kori - Kori, with her cold personality, didn't want to become Asa's friend in the start. She became friends with Dia and Kusa, but not with Asa. Kori thinks she is very immature and stubborn, but later realizes that Asa is a good girl with a pure heart.

Nissho Hikari - Asa doesn't like much about Hikari, but later learns to trust her.
