Concept / Plot
Futari wa Nervous is a fictional magical girl anime that only exists inside "Sket Dance" real anime. Also it seems to be a parody of the real anime "Futari wa Pretty Cure". It is targeted at preteen girls, but is essentially part of the superhero genre. Despite the fact that the pre-transformation drama content accounts for about 90% of the show, due to the high quality of its action scenes, it has received wide acclaim and popularity. Marriage Blue (マリッジ・ブルー) is one of the protagonists of the anime. She is a young woman with twin ponytails who shows anxiety about her engagement and upcoming wedding, wondering if marrying her fiance is the right thing to do. Maternity Blue (マタニティ・ブルー) is the other protagonist of the anime. She is a young woman with a ponytail who is both married and pregnant, but who worries about the environment into which she is bringing a child. The storyline centers on how the two protagonists manage to defeat the mysterious villain despite their many personal anxieties.
