Serious Trouble! A Desperate Pisard (マジヤバ!捨て身のピーサード "Majiyaba! Sutemi no Pīsādo"?), dubbed Is It Over Yet? in the edited English dub, is the 5th episode of the season Futari wa Pretty Cure, and also the 5th episode of Pretty Cure franchise overall.


Pisard is given his final chance to defeat Pretty Cure, so he attempts to seperate the girls.


Mepple begins to compliment Nagisa on her looks as she gets dressed for the day, in order to goad her into giving him breakfast. She summons Omp on the Card Commune, who gives Mepple his "Kitsune Udon" after two failed attempts with natto and rice omelette. Nagisa calls him spoiled, but Mepple prefers to be labeled a "domineering husband" instead, future husband to Mipple.

In the Dotsuku Zone, Pisard pleads with the Evil King to give him another chance, who tells him that his own existence is linked to the Dotsuku Zone's, and thus if he perishes so will Pisard. As he leaves, Pisard overhears his comrades doubting his prowess, calling him weak and to plan ahead in case of another failure, such as deciding who will go next after him. This lack of trust angers Pisard as he storms off.

FwPC05 -11- Nagisa and FujiP

Nagisa talks to the soccer boy from her school again.

A reluctant Nagisa takes Mepple to Honoka's house so that he can see Mipple. She doubts if the two will even be at home, given that they're arriving uninvited, but Mepple brushes this aside arrogantly, making fun of Nagisa for not having a boyfriend. Just as this occurs, the teenage soccer player from before passes by, prompting Mepple to hide away as Nagisa greets the boy and introduces herself as the girl who helped return his soccer ball to him earlier. The boy thanks her and leaves for his soccer practice, prompting Mepple to come out and continue teasing Nagisa, who notes "it's not like that" and that she doesn't even know the upperclassman's full name.

Once at the Yukishiro household, Mepple asks Nagisa to shout out to make their presence known, but Nagisa mentions that while Mepple and Mipple may be "deeply in love," she herself and Honoka are not that close. Chuutaro comes out to greet them, followed by Honoka and Mipple. Honoka sees this as perfect timing, given how she wanted to see Nagisa as well, due to Mipple's insistence on seeing Mepple. The group then goes to a nearby park as the lovey-dovey couple play together on a swingset.

FwPC05 -20- Pickup artists

"Ladies' Man" and his friend, who hit on Nagisa and Honoka.

Nagisa and Honoka discuss their mutual lack of a boyfriend despite receiving many love letters when suddenly, Mepple and Mipple note a "dangerous presence" nearby, prompting them to hide. The girls panic, thinking it's Pisard, but it turns out to be two older teens who have taken a liking to them. The two boys try to grab the girls to go for a ride, but startled by their impoliteness, Honoka tells them off, prompting a startled Nagisa to pull her away and leave the park.

Now in town, the girls start to get hungry and discuss where they should eat. Honoka makes fun of Nagisa for listing foods that have the word "yaki" in them, giving Nagisa an idea to take her out for some takoyaki. Nagisa introduces Honoka to Fujita Akane for the first time, a former lacrosse player at Verone and owner of the Tako Cafe. Akane notes that Honoka is a "new friend" for Nagisa, to which the latter tries to deny a bit. Upon receiving their takoyaki orders, Nagisa explains that she always stops at Akane's after practice, and that Akane used to work for a big company before leaving to start her own business. Honoka lends Nagisa a handkerchief so that she can wipe her face after eating.

FwPC05 -31- Mature dress

The girls go to the mall.

The girls then head off to the mall under Nagisa's suggestion, where she goes windowshopping for clothes. Honoka notes that Nagisa is an interesting person who is fun to be around. Once finished, the girls part ways for the day. Nagisa wonders if she and Honoka really are friends, despite living in two separate worlds, before noticing that she accidentally took Honoka's handkerchief from earlier with her. Mepple tells Nagisa to go back and return it. Meanwhile, Mipple notices that Pisard is following her and Honoka, prompting her to run away. Nagisa learns from Honoka's grandmother that she hasn't arrived back home yet, and after dropping off the handkerchief, Mepple senses a bad feeling about Honoka and Mipple's whereabouts, prompting the two to search for them.

Honoka is cornered into a currently unoccupied construction site, still refusing to give up the Prism Stone that Mipple has to Pisard, who notes that when the girls are by themselves, they cannot transform individually. He chases Honoka around the site, eventually causing her to trip and let go of Mipple's Card Commune which falls into his hands. As this happens, Nagisa and Mepple arrive on the scene. Pisard, again noting that the girls cannot transform together without their Card Communes, hands the one he had back to Honoka, demanding they come at him with their full power.

FwPC05 -51- Pisard jumps into the sky

Pisard jumps into the sky to attack Pretty Cure from above.

Rather than send out a Zakenna to fight, Pisard himself takes on Pretty Cure. The fight moves from the construction site to ontop a nearby passenger train, where Cure Black and Cure White continue to struggle. After jumping off the train onto a riverbank, the fight continues, with Pisard chastizing the two for acting selflessly while trying to save themselves. The girls then pull out a Marble Screw attack, which Pisard is able to push back on with his own blast at first, causing a struggle between the two sides, before the girls are finally able to overpower him, leaving behind just his green pendant. Honoka worries over what they did to Pisard, but Mepple assures her that he returned to the darkness from which he came, Mipple adding that he won't return in that form either. The group then retrieves the Emerald Prism Stone that forms from Pisard's discarded pendant.
