Full-Throttle stress! Being the Madonna is tough (ストレス全開!マドンナはつらいよ "Sutoresu Zenkai! Madon'na Hatsurai yo?), dubbed Practice Makes Perfect in the English dub, is the 16th episode of the season Futari wa Pretty Cure, and also the 16th episode of Pretty Cure franchise overall.


Nagisa struggles to try to understand the school superstar after she believes the girl doesn't like her. Meanwhile, Poisony decides to use Yuka as part of her plan to defeat Pretty Cure. 


In the Dotsuku Zone, the Evil King speaks with the remaining villains. Kiriya begins to make comments causing Poisony to rudely respond. Evil King goes on to say that with the cures already possessing two of the Prism Stones, they cannot allow the girls to get any more. 

On the way to school in a limo is a pretty girl who steps out of it upon arrival. She thanks the driver and heads inside of the school, unaware that Poisony is watching her. 

Nagisa is in the middle of Lacrosse practice and watches as everyone takes off to observe the school superstar as she plays volleyball. They all want to watch her play, and because of her talents the team wins. Impressed, Nagisa and her friends chat about Yuka while walking away, commenting that she isn't even on the volleyball team. It turns out she was only helping out, just as she had done for the Tennis club. They try to determine which club Yuka actually is in when Honoka comes by to reveal that she is another member of the Science Club.

As Honoka and Nagisa begin to leave, they are approached by Yuka. She apologizes for not being around lately and asks for an update as to what has been going on in the club lately, then mentions how beautifully Nagisa handled a situation earlier. Although she asks her to be more careful next time and takes off.

Nagisa notices a limo

The following morning Nagisa rushes to school and decides to take a shortcut when suddenly she notices a limo behind her. She moves out of the way and spots Yuka in the limo, who after locking eyes quickly ducks down to avoid being seen as the driver drops her off in a nearby alleyway that leads to Verone Academy.

Nagisa continues to rush to school but unfortunately doesn't make it to class in time and has to clean the blackboard erasers as punishment. 

As she is doing this, Honoka comes by and offers to help Nagisa, and they begin to play around, causing Yuka to walk by and observe them when she notices how much fun they are having. Nagisa asks if she would like to join them, and at first Yuka considers it- only to quickly reconsider and call it childish. She walks away as Nagisa remarks that Yuka must hate her, although Honoka isn't sure this is the truth, with both of them unaware that Yuka is still there listening.

As the girls leave Yuka is still watching them, now feeling saddned. She hurriedly attempts to rid of it and takes off, only to come across a fortune tellers stand. She is there only a moment before the woman there releases a Zakenna that takes the shape of Yuka's shadow, causing many clones of her to appear after she takes off.

At the park Nagisa and Honoka are walking when they see Yuka. Honoka greets her but she does not say anything, causing Nagisa to claim she hates her again. After Honoka mentions that she's acting weird, a bunch of other Yuka begin to walk by as the girls stare in disbelief. Seeing Poisony they quickly transform into Pretty Cure and are surrounded by many Yuka, only to learn the real one is actually in the crowd as well causing them to realize they can't fight too roughly or else risk hurting her. They recall being told that the Zakenna possessed her shadow, so they get an idea to turn on nearby lights to make the shadows vanish; but Poisony easily summons more.

By now Nagisa has gotten a new idea, and she uses a marker to mark the real Yuka, which they can find because she was the only one to remain before Poisony summoned more. Honoka draws facial details with the marker, along with a heart on her forehead. Poisony refuses to admit defeat and she makes the Zakenna transform into one giant one, but Nagisa isn't worried since they can attack this one with no problem. They quickly rid of it and Poisony and return to normal.

That following day at school, Nagisa ask if Honoka thinks the scribbling is gone from Yuka's face. They picture it and burst into laughter, but Yuka, who was walking by gets flustered and runs away, believing she still has the marker on her face. This causes them to laugh more.
