Prétear is about a girl named Himeno Awayuki who aims to live a happy life especially
after the death of her mother. Himeno meets Hayate, and eventually discovers that he is
one of the seven Leafe Knights. The group consists of Hayate (Knight of Wind), Sasame
(Knight of Sound), Goh (Knight of Fire), Kei (Knight of Light), Mannen (Knight of Ice),
Hajime (Knight of Water), and Shin (Knight of Plants). The knights explain that Takako (or
Fenrir), the 'Princess of Calamity', or 'Princess of Disaster' in the ADV translations,
escaped and sent demon larvae (monster worms in Odex translations) to Himeno's town, and
that the Leafe, which the larvae are absorbing, is the energy for all life itself. The
only way to destroy the demons is for Himeno to become the Prétear and fight them
alongside the Leafe Knights.

picked on both by her new family, and by her peers at school. Himeno's alienation grows,
and she begins to question her place with her new life, she meets Hayate and the other
Leafe Knights, who tell her that she's the Prétear who is needed to save the world.

Princesses'. In the Manga, Natsue is possessed by the Princess of Disaster; her hatred is
