PlotOne day as she's running to school from home, a young girl named Usagi Tsukino runs into a black cat being squashed and tortured by some children. She chases them off and removes a bandage from its forehead, finding underneath what she calls a "crescent-shaped bald spot". Meanwhile, the evil Queen Beryl of the Dark Kingdom is planning with her servant, Jadeite, to steal energy for the Queen Metalia. Jadeite sends a monster named Morga to the diamond shop run by Usagi's friend Naru's mother, and she drains energy by selling cursed jewelry. After failing an exam, and later running into Mamoru Chiba, who calls her "Bun-head" because of her results and the hairstyle that she wears resembles Buns on her head.
Later at home the cat comes and talks to her. It tells her that she is the Pretty Guardians that Fights for Love and For Justice, Sailor Moon. It is her destiny to save the world from the Dark Kingdom. The cat, named Luna, gives Usagi a magic brooch and tells her to say "Moon Prism Power, Make Up". She does and is transformed into Sailor Moon. Sailor Moon goes to the jewelry store to save Naru and the others from Morga. A mysterious masked man named Tuxedo Mask appears to help Sailor Moon, and she throws her tiara at Morga and says "Moon Tiara Action!" Morga is destroyed, and Jadeite's energy is lost.Sailor Moon foils three more of Jadeite's plans, destroying the monsters Fro and Derella, and releasing some musclemen from Jadeite's control. Usagi meets a girl named Ami whom Luna suspects to be from the Dark Kingdom, but fighting off an attack from Jadeite's monster Garoben, Luna realizes that Ami is Sailor Mercury, so she gives her a transformation pen that, when she says "Mercury Power, Make Up", transforms her into Sailor Mercury. She weakens Garoben with Bubble Spray and Sailor Moon destroys her.
After Sailor Moon and Sailor Mercury defeat Jadeite's monster Ramua, Sailor Moon goes aboard a bus that Jadeite's monster Kigaan is taking into another dimension. Rei Hino discovers Jadeite's intentions so he sends her there as well. Luna gives her a transformation pen so she can transform into Sailor Mars, and she destroys Kigaan with Fire Soul. Sailor Mercury stops the black hole from closing, and Tuxedo Mask rescues all the girls from the dimension.After the three Sailor Guardians foil two more of Jadeite's plans and destroy his monsters Murid and Thetis, Queen Beryl threatens to put Jadeite to Eternal Sleep if he fails again. He challenges the Sailor Guardians to a battle at the airport, but eventually they defeat him and he is run over by a jet. Beryl puts him into an eternal frozen state and freezes him into endless darkness (Eternal Sleep). Nephrite becomes her new commander, but Zoisite dislikes him and wants to have his turn.
Nephrite's plans to gather energy for Queen Metalia involved draining one person's energy at its peak (as opposed to Jadeite gathering energy from several people at once) by charging an item close to them with dark energy, and eventually a monster would appear from the item. However, each of his plans was foiled when Sailor Moon destroys his monsters: Tesunī, Petasos, Black Widow, Cameran, and Jumo. While he is posing as a millionaire named Masato Sanjouin, Naru falls in love with him.After sending a monster named Regulus after Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask, and later attacking them in an elevator shaft, Nephrite discovers Tuxedo Mask's true identity. After one more of Nephrite's plans is foiled (Castor and Pollux being destroyed by the Sailor Guardians), Queen Beryl turns her attention to getting the Silver Crystal, and searches for the Moon Princess. He mistakenly thinks Princess Diamond is the Moon Princess and implants Soul Shadow in her, but he is driven out, and Sailor Moon destroys him.
Eventually Usagi discovers that Naru is in love with Nephrite, and tries to tell her that he is evil. The Sailor Guardians fight Nephrite and defeat him. Sailor Moon is about to destroy him with her tiara when Naru jumps in front of him, forcing Sailor Moon to stop her attack. Nephrite in turn protects Naru from an attack by Zoisite's monster, Yasha, and Sailor Moon destroys her with her tiara. When Nephrite, in an attempt to find Sailor Moon, tells Naru his real name and that he wants to fight alongside the Sailor Guardians, she calls Usagi, and Nephrite soon discovers (though Naru does not know) that she is Sailor Moon. However, Zoisite has three monsters, Housenka, Grape, and Suzuran, kidnap Naru, and Nephrite saves her from them. But the monsters return and Housenka stabs Nephrite with thorns from her arm. The Sailor Guardians destroy all three monsters, but Nephrite dies of his injuries and dissolves into dust.Queen Beryl gets some energy for the Queen Metalia, who tells her to find the seven Rainbow Crystals, each of which is inside an earthling, with one of the Seven Great Youma inside it. Zoisite tracks down the first, Game Machine Joe, who becomes friends with a girl named Makoto , and extracts the crystal from him, then awakens the shadow within him, transforming him into Game Machine Man. Luna gives Makoto a transformation pen and she uses it to transform into Sailor Jupiter. Luna gives Sailor Moon the Moon Stick, and she uses it to heal Joe.
The other six crystal carriers are a priest, Ryo Urawa (who becomes friends with Ami), an artist named Yumemi Yumeno, Motoki's girlfriend Reika, Rei's grandpa, and a fat cat named Rhett Butler. One by one, Zoisite extracts their crystals and transforms them into (respectively) Boxy, Bunbo, Binah, Rikoukeidar, Jiji, and Bakene. The Sailor Guardians get one of the crystals, Tuxedo Mask gets two, and Zoisite gets three, bringing his total up to four. All six monsters are healed by Sailor Moon (killing the shadows within them). Eventually, after fighting off an attack from Akan (an actor turned into a monster by Zoisite), Sailor Moon is forced to hand her crystal over to Zoisite, even though she heals the actor.Queen Beryl's fourth general, Kunzite, who is in love with Zoisite, goes with him to attack the Sailor Guardians, and he traps them in a dark dome, while Zoisite impersonates Sailor Moon to trick Tuxedo Mask, and stabs him. However, he is attacked by Sailor Venus, who then attacks Kunzite, releasing the Sailor Guardians from the dome. Sailor Venus has with her a talking cat like Luna. His name is Artemis.
Zoisite challenges Mamoru (who is really Tuxedo Mask) to a battle at Starlight Tower over the crystals. Usagi comes with him, unaware of what Zoisite is going to do. Before they can fight, Kunzite appears and takes the crystals. Mamoru scratches Zoisite's face. Despite the fact that Queen Beryl ordered him to take Mamoru alive (so she can turn him to her side), Zoisite tries to kill him, forcing Usagi to transform into Sailor Moon in front of him. Mamoru then reveals himself as Tuxedo Mask. Zoisite stabs him with an ice crystal, nearly killing him. Sailor Moon cries for him, and the seven Rainbow Crystals merge with her tears to form the Silver Crystal. She is revealed to be the Moon Princess, Princess Serenity, and Mamoru is Prince Endymion of Earth.
Zoisite attacks Serenity, but she defeats her using Moon Stick, made stronger by the Silver Crystal. Kunzite captures Mamoru and returns to the Dark Kingdom with Zoisite, whom Queen Beryl kills with an energy blast from her crystal ball as a punishment for disobeying her. Queen Metalia begins to turn Mamoru evil. Kunzite attacks the Sailor Guardians, but Sailor Moon defeats him with Moon Healing Escalation.Kunzite is assigned the task of finding and destroying Sailor Moon, and getting the Silver Crystal back from her. He turns several people into monsters, like Mitsuami, Shakoukai, Blizzar, and Misha and Janelle, but they are all healed by Sailor Moon. Endymion, though he is now evil, often gets into arguments with Kunzite and even helps the Sailor Guardians out on a few occasions. Kunzite summons the Ancient Creature of the Lake, but she is healed by Sailor Moon, turning back into the spirit of a girl. Kunzite later tries to recapture the crystal carriers in the hope that he can revive the Seven Great Youma, but his plan is foiled by Sailor Moon, who heals Endymion. However, Kunzite recaptures him.
The Sailor Guardians pretend to fight each other so they can find the entrance to the Dark Kingdom, and fight off Kunzite's monster, Oniwabandana, Sailor Moon restoring her to her original form. The Sailor Guardians find a tunnel leading to the Dark Kingdom and fight Kunzite. In the middle of the battle, they are taken back in time, where Queen Serenity tells them the story: Princess Serenity from the Moon Kingdom was in love with Prince Endymion from Earth. But Queen Beryl and her followers attacked from the Dark Kingdom. They killed Princess Serenity, Prince Endymion, and all the Sailor Guardians, so Queen Serenity was forced to use the Silver Crystal and use up all her power to seal everyone inside the crystal, and all the Sailor Guardians reborn on Earth. After returning to the present, they are attacked by Kunzite again, who gets much stronger each time they see him, but Sailor Moon uses Moon Healing Escalation and reflects one of his own energy blades at him, killing him.The Sailor Guardians head for the entrance to the Dark Kingdom to fight Queen Beryl, who sends the DD Girls after them. In the end, the DD Girls and all the Sailor Guardians except Sailor Moon destroy each other, and Beryl teleports Sailor Moon to the Dark Kingdom to fight Prince Endymion, who has been turned evil again. Moon Healing Escalation doesn't work, but Sailor Moon is able to heal him with her orgel, and he injures Queen Beryl. Queen Metalia combines with Beryl, transforming her into a gigantic form. Sailor Moon fights her and transforms into Princess Serenity. They enter a beam struggle, and, powered up by the other Sailor Guardians, Serenity uses Moon Prism Power to completely destroy Beryl.
All the Sailor Guardians and Mamoru return to Earth safely, with their memories of being friends and Sailor Guardians have been erased.

Special: Make Up! Sailor GuardiansJapanese theaters showed a trailer before the Sailor Moon R movie: a 15-minute short named Make Up! Sailor Guardians. Usagi and Chibi-usa overhear two girls talking about the Sailor Guardians after they see a poster. As the girls debate over the smartest, most elegant, strongest, and the leader of the Guardians, Usagi grandly claims those titles for herself. Chibi-usa shakes her head at Usagi's delusion. Clips appear from the debut of each Sailor Guardians, and that girl's image song plays in the background. When even Tuxedo Mask has been mentioned, and the girls are about to leave, Usagi butts in on their conversation and asks them directly about Sailor Moon. The girls give a series of glowing compliments about Sailor Moon, but unlike they did for the other Guardians, they also list her faults. After the girls leave, Usagi sarcastically apologizes for being a clumsy cry-baby and then bursts into exaggerated tears.
The poster the girls see uses artwork from the R movie advertisements, with a new background and sans logo.
Movie: Promise of the RoseAirdate: December 5, 1993
In his youth, Mamoru hands a mysterious boy a rose before he disappears, vowing to bring Mamoru a flower. In the present day, Mamoru meets up with Usagi Tsukino and the Sailor Guardians at the Jindai Botanical Garden. Usagi attempts to kiss Mamoru, but when he suspects the other Sailor Guardians of spying on him, he walks off outside alone.
The stranger appears from the garden's fountain. Usagi tries to break the man's grasp from Mamoru, but is knocked down. The man vows that no one will prevent him from keeping his promise before disappearing again. Mamoru tells Usagi that the stranger's name is Fiore. At Rei's temple, the senshi discuss an asteroid which has started to approach Earth and on which Luna and Artemis have discovered traces of vegetal life. The talk turns into gossip about Mamoru's and Fiore's possible relationship, while Usagi thinks about how Mamoru had told her that he had no family and was alone, and how she had promised him she would be his family from now on.
Fiore sends a flower-monster, Glycina, to Tokyo in order to drain the population's life-energy, but the Sailor Guardians free them and destroy the monster. Fiore appears, revealing his responsibility for the attack, and uses a Xenian flower before severely injuring the Sailor Guardians. Tuxedo Mask saves Sailor Moon from death and tries to talk Fiore out of fighting. However, the Xenian flower controls Fiore's mind and has him attack Sailor Moon. After Tuxedo Mask saves her from being killed, Fiore takes Mamoru to an asteroid rapidly approaching Earth and begins to revive him in a crystal filled with liquid. While in the crystal, Mamoru remembers meeting Fiore after his parents died in a car accident. Mamoru had previously assumed that he had made up the boy as an imaginary friend. Fiore explains that he had to leave Mamoru because of the Earth's unsuitable atmosphere; Mamoru gave Fiore a rose before disappearing. Fiore searched the galaxy to find a flower for Mamoru, finding the Xenian flower in the process. Seeking revenge on the humans for his loneliness, Fiore returns to Earth.
Meanwhile, Luna and Artemis tell the Sailor Guardians that the Xenian flower can destroy planets using weak-hearted people. Sailor Mercury realizes that the energy from the asteroid matches the flower-monster's evil energy, deducing that Fiore has hidden there. The Senshi decide to rescue Mamoru; Sailor Moon is reluctant to do so, but the Sailor Guardians and Chibi-usa convince Sailor Moon to save Mamoru and confront Fiore.
After the Sailor Guardians fly to the asteroid, Fiore reveals that he will scatter flower-seeds to drain humanity's energy on Earth. The Sailor Guardians then fight hundreds of flower-monsters, but the Sailor Guardians are captured. After Fiore orders Sailor Moon to surrender,Sailor Moon is unable to feel his loneliness; Fiore begins to drain her life-force. Mamoru escapes and saves Sailor Moon by throwing a rose at Fiore. The rose embedded in Fiore's chest blossoms, freeing him from the Xenian's control. The flowers on the asteroid disappear, but it continues to hurtle towards Earth. Usagi uses the Silver Crystal to transform into Princess Serenity in order to change the course of the asteroid. Fiore tries to stop Usagi's transformation, but he soon realizes that when Usagi and Mamoru were children, she had given Mamoru the rose that was once given to him after Fiore had left. The immense power and energy from the Silver Crystal obliterate Fiore and the Xenian. Mamoru and the Sailor Guardians lend Princess Serenity their powers and abilities to sustain the Silver Crystal as the asteroid descends towards Earth. The Silver Crystal shatters, the asteroid disintegrates and Usagi dies. On Earth, despite Luna and Artemis' concern over why the Sailor Guardians are taking too long, Chibi-usa assures them that the Sailor Guardians are all right.
Meanwhile, on the disintegrated asteroid, the girls and Mamoru cry over Usagi, but Fiore reappears and thanks Mamoru. Using a nectar-filled flower with Fiore's life-energy, Mamoru wets his lips with the nectar and kisses Usagi, reviving her and repowering the Silver Crystal. Fiore, reduced to the form of a child again, returns to space to live in peace.

PlotRei has been having visions about the world being destroyed by Silence. Professor Tomoe and his assistant Kaolinite seek out Pure Heart Crystals to extract from people. They are currently searching for three particular Pure Heart Crystals called Talismans that will help them rule the world. Kaolinite sends a Daimon pod into a tree to summon a Daimon named Mikusi, which extracts Rei's Pure Heart Crystal. Two unknown figures dressed as Sailor Guardians appear and destroy Mikusi, and return the Pure Heart Crystal to Rei, as it is not one of the Talismans.
Soon they meet two girls named Haruka and Michiru, who (unknown to them) are the two unknown figures, Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune. They are also after Pure Heart Crystals, and are willing to sacrifice the lives of the three who have the Talismans to stop the Heart Snatchers, and do not want to work with the Sailor Guardians. After several failed attempts (with Makoto and Ami as two of the targets), Kaolinite and a Daimon named Cenicienta attack Usagi and extract her Pure Heart Crystal, but eventually she destroys Senishenta and they fight Kaolinite. Kaolinite is killed when Sailor Uranus uses World Shaking to reflect her crystal beam back at her and knock her over the edge of Tokyo Tower.Eudial, one of the Witches 5, takes over for Kaolinite, and extracts people's Pure Heart Crystals with a gun, sending Daimons created in a Daimon oven to fight the Sailor Guardians and prevent their interference. During this time, Chibi-usa returns from the future as Sailor Chibi Moon. After many failed attempts, she extracts Minako's Pure Heart Crystal, and against a Daimon named Doorknobder, Usagi is forced to transform into Sailor Moon in front of Haruka and Michiru, who transform into Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune. Doorknobder is destroyed.
Eudial discovers Haruka and Michiru to have two of the Talismans they are seeking, so she sets a trap for them on an island and extracts Sailor Neptune's Talisman. Sailor Uranus extracts her own Talisman with Eudial's gun after Usagi fights her off. The two Talismans turn into a mirror and a saber. Sailor Pluto arrives, her human form being a girl named Setsuna, and reveals the third Talisman to be the crystal ball on her staff, and she also restores the Talismans to Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune. Combined, the three Talismans summon the Holy Grail. Sailor Moon gets it, becomes Super Sailor Moon and defeats Eudial, who is then killed when she crashes her car as a result of Mimete, another of the Witches 5, putting acid snails in her car to dissolve the brakes.Professor Tomoe's master, the Messiah of Silence, needs Pure Heart Crystals to increase her power, so Mimete takes over for Eudial and has Daimons suck Pure Heart Crystals out of well-known young men through their mouths, but the Sailor Guardians foil each of her plans. Meanwhile, Chibi-usa makes friends with Professor Tomoe's daughter, Hotaru. Usagi discovers that Kaolinite has been revived, and is now acting as Hotaru's guardian. Eventually, Mimete uses Eudial's power device to increase her size and power on a TV screen, but is killed when another of the Witches 5, Tellu, pulls the plug on her, apparently seeking revenge for taking her job from her.
Hotaru is snatched away by Kaolinite, as she is possessed by the Messiah of Silence and could transform into her or Sailor Saturn, the Sailor Guardian of destruction. Telllu uses plants called Venus Heart Traps to extract Pure Heart Crystals, but they are destroyed by Sailor Moon. She turns her final plant into a giant plant monster, but it grabs her and self-destructs, killing her. The fourth of the Witches 5, Viluy, uses a master computer to extract Pure Heart Crystals, and fights the Sailor Guardians with a nano ray from the nanocuff bracelet on her arm, but when it is damaged by Sailor Moon, the nanocuff turns on her and the nano ray dissolves her.The last of the Witches 5, Cyprine, extracts Pure Heart Crystals with a glass statue. The Sailor Senshi fight her and her other half, Ptitol, and eventually trick them into destroying each other. Kaolinite, who is given a hard time about not doing any of Tomoe's evil plans, captures Chibi-usa, and the Messiah of Silence within Hotaru extracts Chibi-usa's Pure Heart Crystal and awakens as Mistress 9. Sailors Uranus and Neptune are shocked as they expected Sailor Saturn. Feeling like she doesn't need her anymore, she strikes Kaorinite with lightning, killing her. She then uses the remaining Daimon pods to create several gel-like Daimons that help power a barrier around their base, Mugen Academy. Sailor Uranus, Sailor Neptune, and Sailor Pluto are attacked inside a helicopter, which is blown up. Sailor Pluto stops time and helps teleports Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune into the school. Before doing so, she tells them that using the time stop attack was expressly forbidden by Queen Serenity and she dies in the helicopter explosion. Mistress 9 brings Sailor Moon into the school to take the Holy Grail from her, and sends Professor Tomoe after Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune. Germatoid, the monster who possessed Tomoe turning him evil, leaves him to fight them, and is killed by Sailor Uranus.
Mistress 9 tricks Sailor Moon into giving her the Holy Grail, by pretending to go back into Hotaru. Sailors Uranus and Neptune sees past it and warns her to protect the Holy Grail. Believing that Hotaru is still there she does give up the grail and it allows Mistress 9 summons her master, Pharaoh 90, who begins to use the Silence to destroy the world. However, Hotaru is able to fight Mistress 9 from within and destroys her, transforming into Sailor Saturn. She gives back Chibi-usa's Pure Heart Crystal before returning to face Sailor Moon. Sailor Saturn thanks her for protecting her, but now she's the only one who can defeat Pharaoh 90 as Sailor Moon in her current state is poweless against him. She mentions that if she was Super Sailor Moon, she would've been a great assistance to her. Against Moon's wishes, Saturn enters the core and tries to use her power to destroy Pharaoh 90, but is unable to. In that moment, Sailor Uranus blames Sailor Moon for putting the world at risk as she struggled to transform into her super form, Though the Holy Grail was destroyed when Pharaoh 90 was summoned, Sailor Moon is able to transform into Super Sailor Moon with the help of her friends, Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune loaning her their powers and enter Pharaoh 90 and defeats him by destroying his core. The world is saved and Hotaru is reborn as a baby.
Haruka and Michiru care for a baby Hotaru for a while. Soon they give her to Professor Tomoe, who is no longer evil, and during the battle suffered amnesia, a broken arm, and a broken leg, but will make a full recovery. Chibi-Usa is visited by a deceased Sailor Pluto and tells her what was really going on in Hotaru's body before her rebirth. She is depressed when she leaves her, but is comforted by Professor Tomoe. She soon notices baby Hotaru in his lap and realized what Sailor Pluto said was true. During that time, Usagi and her friends are looking for Hotaru when they hear violin music coming from Haruka and Michiru. They then challenge Sailor Moon to a battle, believing her unworthy of being their future queen because of her idealisms she put the Earth at risk, which is something that Neo Queen Serenity would never do. The Inner Guardians were outraged by their accusation and transformed. Once transformed, Venus accuses Uranus and Neptune for putting blame on their leader just because she wanted to save Hotaru. Mercury defends Venus' accusations by telling them Sailor Moon fought to the best of her abilities. They were ready to fight them, but are told to step aside by Sailor Moon. However, Sailors Uranus and Neptune are defeated when a strange light flashes from her tiara, and they finally acknowledge her as moon princess and future queen, and say that they have found the true Messiah and that Hotaru wasn't the only one she saved. They then drive off in their car. Chibi-Usa returns to the future, but comes back in time to help the Sailor Guardians defeat a final Daimon, Rangy.

Princess Snow Kaguya arrives on Earth in an attempt to cover the world in solid ice, after her initial failure several years ago. A piece of her comet has been lost and she cannot proceed without it. She sends her minions, the Snow Dancers, to search for the missing fragment. A young astronomer named Kakeru Ozora finds the fragment and keeps it in his observatory to study if further.
Meanwhile, the Sailor Guardians are enjoying a day in town. Luna develops a cold and leaves the Sailor Guardians to go back to Usagi's house. On the way there, she collapses while crossing the road, and is almost hit by a car, but is rescued and nursed to health by Kakeru. Luna then develops strong romantic feelings for him, even kissing him on the cheek in his sleep, leaving Artemis feeling rejected. Luna herself ends up with unrequited love because it turns out that Kakeru has a sweetheart and girlfriend of his own, an astronaut named Himeko Nayotake, and more importantly, because Luna is a cat. It turns out the two are unhappy because the scientific Himeko cannot come to terms with Kakeru's belief of the existence of the mythological Princess Kaguya; Himeko later leaves on a space mission without reconciling with him.
The shard of the comet that Kakeru collected attaches itself to his life force, and begins slowly stealing his life-force energy, causing him to become very ill. Princess Snow Kaguya later takes the shard, but because it is linked to his life-force, he is brought even closer to death when Snow Kaguya throws the shard into the Pacific Ocean and creates an enormous ice crystal that will continue to draw away Kakeru's life force energy until he dies. She and her Snow Dancers then begin to freeze the Earth. The Sailor Guardians attempt to stop her, but none of their attacks seem to work, as every time they destroy the Snow Dancers, Kaguya keeps reviving them using the crystal. Just before Snow Kaguya could finish the Sailor Guardians off, Sailor Moon tries to stop her and uses the Holy Grail/Purity Chalice to transform into Super Sailor Moon. She uses her Rainbow Moon Heartache, attack but is easily overpowered by greatly enhanced Kaguya's strength and power. Determined to protect the Earth, Super Sailor Moon prepares to activate the Imperium Silver Crystal's immense energy and power. All of the nine Sailor Guardians combine their Sailor powers and abilities all at once to activate the Legendary Silver Crystal's immense power, which destroys Princess Snow Kaguya, her Snow Dancers, the ice crystal in the ocean, and her comet once again.
When the nine Sailor Guardians defeat Princess Snow Kaguya, Sailor Moon wishes for Luna to become Princess Kaguya. Kakeru, worried about Himeko's safety, had been wandering in the snowstorm and is saved by Luna at the exact point Kakeru saved her, transformed into a beautiful human woman. She takes him near the moon, where Himeko, on her space mission, witnesses the odd phenomenon. Luna tells him that he needs to stop focusing on his work so much and to pay more attention to Himeko. She shares a sad loving kiss with him, then they return to normal. Kakeru takes up Luna's advice and meets Himeko, who now believes in Kaguya, at the airport. Artemis then comforts Luna and they reconcile.

PlotChibi-usa sees a winged unicorn named Pegasus in her dreams. At a solar eclipse, the Dead Moon Circus arrives in a circus tent. The leader, Zirconia, sends the Amazon Trio to look for Pegasus. Since he cannot exist in the real world (except as an illusion), he is hiding in a person's dreams, and so their job is to find that person. The Amazon Trio - Tiger's Eye, Hawk's Eye, and Fisheye- search through photos of targets given to them by Zirconia's pet eyeball, Zircon.They take it in turns (with Tiger's Eye going the most often) to target a person and extract their Dream Mirror and look into it to search their dreams for Pegasus. Whenever the Sailor Guardians come to stop them, they will summon a monster called a Lemures to fight them off.
On the first two attacks, Pegasus would appear and transform Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon into Super Sailors.

At one point, a kitten named Diana appears. She is the daughter of Luna and Artemis from the future, and Chibi-usa's companion.At one point, Fish Eye's Lemures, Mawashitaro, creates a barrier to prevent Pegasus from giving Sailor Moon the wand she uses to destroy the Lemures, and Pegasus turns Sailor Mercury, Sailor Mars, Sailor Jupiter, and Sailor Venus into Super Sailors, giving them new attacks (Mercury Aqua Rhapsody, Mars Flame Sniper, Jupiter Oak Evolution, and Venus Love and Beauty Shock) to destroy the barrier, and Sailor Moon destroys Mawashitaro. Four of Tiger's Eye's targets are Rei, Minako, Ami, and Makoto.
Soon, Zirconia reveals to the Amazon Trio that they were turned into humanlike forms by the magic of an orb, and that they were once a tiger, a hawk, and a fish.

When she tells Zirconia that she knows whose dreams Pegasus is hiding in, and questions whether he really intended them to have humanlike forms, he assumes that Pegasus is in Usagi's dreams and sends Hawk's Eye after her. After Fish Eye and Tiger's Eye leave, Zirconia sends the Amazoness Quartet - Ves Ves, Cere Cere, Jun Jun, and Palla Palla - to eliminate them, and Palla Palla sends a Lemures named Mr. Magic Pierrot to do the job.
Mr. Magic Pierrot finds that Pegasus is not in Usagi's dreams, and fights the Amazon Trio. He destroys Usagi's dream mirror and kills Hawk's Eye. Tiger's Eye and Fish Eye are no match for him, so they destroy the orb that transformed them and give up the power that made them human to rebuild Usagi's dream mirror. Usagi transforms into Sailor Moon and destroys Mr. Magic Pierrot. Tiger's Eye and Fisheye die from losing their power, and they and Hawk's Eye revert to their original forms. Pegasus restores them, giving them true human forms and dream mirrors, and takes them to live in the forest of Elysion, his dream world.
The Amazoness Quartet takes over, and Queen Nehelenia, who is trapped inside a mirror, tells Zirconia that the dream mirror of the holder of Pegasus will be gold. The Amazoness Quartet target several people in search of the golden mirror, but do not find it, and send The Lemures to fight the Sailor Guardians whenever they stop them, but Sailor Moon destroys the Lemures every time. Eventually, Pegasus reveals to Chibi-usa that his real name is Helios, and he was captured by the Dead Moon Circus when they invaded Elysion in search of the Golden Crystal (his horn) which will give them the power to rule the world or destroy it, and Chibiusa's dream light turned his soul into Pegasus. Elysion was weakened when people gave up on their dreams.Eventually, Queen Nehelenia plunges the world into darkness. The Sailor Guardians discover the source to be the circus tent, so they enter it to stop the Dead Moon Circus. Mamoru, however, must stay behind because Earth is being suffocated, and his life force is connected to Earth. Queen Nehelenia makes the Amazoness Quartet more powerful and they fight the Sailor Guardians, but are defeated by Sailor Moon. In the process, Nehelenia discovers that Chibi-usa is the one whose dreams Pegasus was hiding in, Zirconia appears and extracts Sailor Chibi Moon's dream mirror (the golden mirror), but she takes it back, so when he realizes it imprisons her in Nehelenia's mirror. There, Nehelenia tells Sailor Chibi Moon that she wanted to rule the Moon Kingdom using the Golden Crystal, but was sealed in a mirror by Queen Serenity. The Amazoness Quartet switch Sailor Chibi Moon around with a doll made by Palla Palla, and they attempt to ride Pegasus and take the Golden Crystal, but are unsuccessful, and Pegasus starts a fire, which Sailor Chibi Moon runs through and gets to him, and the flames vanish. Zirconia traps the Amazoness Quartet insides mirrors, and sends Sailor Chibi Moon to Nehellenia's mirror again. The Sailor Guardians fight Zirconia, who brings the Amazoness Quartet into the room and drains their power. The Sailor Guardians convince them to smash their orbs, releasing them from Nehellenia's power, and also giving up their eternal childhood, and must one day grow up. Zirconia retreats, while Nehellenia extracts the golden mirror from Sailor Chibi Moon and forces Pegasus to reenter his body and become Helios again. She takes the Golden Crystal and walks out of the mirror, destroying Zirconia and Zircon, and puts Sailor Chibi Moon in eternal sleep.
The Sailor Guardians fight Nehellenia, but she is unbeatable with the power of the Golden Crystal. Helios uses what remains of his power to break the eternal sleep over Sailor Chibi Moon. The Amazoness Quartet switch the Golden Crystal with a pineapple and give it to Sailor Moon. Sailor Chibi Moon speaks to everyone on Earth through the crystal and tells them to say "Moon Crisis Power" They do, and the power is restored to the crystal, and Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon shoot a gold energy beam at Nehellenia, defeating her and destroying the circus tents.However, Nehellenia survives, and kidnaps Sailor Chibi Moon. Sailor Moon follows her to the top of what remains of the main circus tent. However, the damage she took from the previous battle destroys her beauty, turning her into ugly and old. She lifts the circus tent up toward the Dead Moon, which is eclipsing the sun, and plans to take her revenge on Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon for destroying her dream of ruling the world, then return to her mirror. She reveals that she looked into a mirror to see her future and saw that she would become old and ugly, and became obsessed with eternal beauty, which she obtained by consuming the dream mirrors of her subjects and turning them into Lemure, and Zirconia was created from her fear of becoming ugly. Nehellenia throws Sailor Chibi Moon over the edge, and Sailor Moon jumps over the edge to save her. Nehellenia then seals herself back inside her mirror, restoring her beauty and leaving Earth in the mirror. The light is returned to Earth when the Dead Moon leaves. Helios turns into Pegasus and saves Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon from the fall by turning them into Princess Serenity and Princess Chibi-usa with wings. He then returns to Elysion to guard the Golden Crystal.
Movie: The Nine Sailor Soldiers Unite! Miracle of the Black Dream HoleAirdate: December 23, 1995
(Sērā Kyū Senshi Shūketsu! Burakku Dorīmu Hōru no Kiseki)Somewhere in Europe, Poupelin plays a song on his flute to hypnotize children, following him into a mysterious ship before sailing off into the sky. Meanwhile, Usagi, Chibi-usa, and the other girls bake cookies together at Makoto's apartment. Usagi ends up with cookies that look perfect but taste terrible; Chibi-usa produces the reverse. Chibi-usa sets out to give her cookies to Mamoru, but is stopped by a butterfly wing-shaped boy in strange white clothing standing outside the sweets shop. They befriend each other, and he causes some of the treats inside the shop window to dance by playing a tune on his flute before revealing himself as Perle. Meanwhile, Usagi visits Mamoru with her cookies, and they argue over his strong and close friendship with Chibi-usa. They hear a report on the radio about the mass disappearance of children all over the world. Around the same time, Chibiusa gives her bag of cookies to Perle before going their separate ways.
That night, Chibi-Usa wakes up, and begins walking through the city. Diana wakes Usagi, who along with the other girls, follow Chibi-Usa, and the other children. They save Chibi-Usa, but get into a fight with Poupelin, and his "Bonbon Babies." Poupelin then hypnotizes the girls into seeing a Gingerbread House. In turn, Tuxedo Mask appears, and snaps the girls out of the spell. Queen Badiane orders her henchman Poupelin and the fairies to hurry up. Perle says outright that he does not believe in her anymore, but she seems unconcerned and orders that Super Sailor Chibi Moon be captured. The ship lands, along with two others, in Marzipan Castle. When the doors are opened, the children run out into the darkness, except for Chibi Moon. Looking into the shadows, she witnesses "Dream Coffins," each containing a sleeping child. Badiane lifts her into the air, commenting on the power she senses from Super Sailor Chibi Moon, and explains her purpose. In the castle's center, a massive Black Dream Hole is forming, gathering the magical "sugar energy" of the sleeping children. Eventually it will overtake Earth, and all humans will enter into Dream Coffins.
Meanwhile, Perle leads the other Super Sailor Guardians to a flying ship of his own. He tells them that Badiane promised that the children would be happy and safe in her world of dreams and where they can remain children indefinitely, but he thinks also of Chibi-usa, his friend. As they reach the castle, they are attacked, and after crash-landing fight Poupelin, Banane, and Orangeat, as well as three sets of Bonbon Babies. Just when the situation seems hopeless, the Super Sailor Guardians are saved by Sailors Neptune, Uranus, and Pluto. With this advantage, they are able to break the flutes of the three fairies, changing them into small birds. The Sailor Guardians infiltrate the castle and confront Queen Badiane, who has drained enough dream energy from the children, including Chibiusa, to create the Black Dream Hole. The power drain is enough to force all the Sailor Guardians except Super Sailor Moon into a half-detransformation. Taking Chibi-Usa with her, Badiane enters the hole itself, and Super Sailor Moon follows. Sailor Moon then finds herself in Mamoru's apartment, carrying Chibi-Usa. Mamoru lays her on the bed, then wraps his arms around Super Sailor Moon and tells her not to worry about anything,just to stay there with him. She asks him again who is more important, herself or Chibi-usa; he eventually tells her that she is. Super Sailor Moon lifts Chibi-usa in her arms once again, and eventually realizes that this experience is all just a dream.
As Sailor Moon tries to flee, Badiane demands Super Sailor Moon to give back Chibi-Usa, but Sailor Moon refuses. Badiane assimilates herself into the black dream hole and attacks Super Sailor Moon with fire. Hearing her mental cry, the other seven Super Sailor Guardians send their power and strength to Super Sailor Moon, awakening Super Sailor Chibi Moon. Together, they Killed Badiane using a double Moon Gorgeous Meditation attack. After the battle, Marzipan Castle is destroyed, and with Perle's help, the Super Sailor Guardians escape. The airships, each carrying children, return to Earth.
Later, at a beach, Perle gives Chibi-usa his glass flute, telling her that he is the fairy who protects children's dreams, and will always be with her, and Chibi Moon kisses him goodbye on the cheek. As Perle flies away, the Sailor Guardians watch the sun rise.

Italian Title: Petali di stelle per Sailor Moon
Polish Title: Czarodziejka z Księżyca: Sailor Moon Sailor Stars
Chinese Title: 美少女戰士Sailor Stars(TW)/美少女戰士最後星光(HK)
PlotIn the first arc of Sailor Stars, Nehellenia returns to seek revenge on Sailor Moon and the Sailor Guardians for thwarting her plans in SuperS. Breaking her soul mirror, the pieces fall to Earth and enter people's eyes, brainwashing them. This of course happens to Mamoru. The Outer Guardians return to fight as Haruka and Michiru are attacked by Nehellenia's minions, and Pluto brings baby Hotaru too since she says they will need her help. Hotaru, using her powers, gives the Outers all power-ups, and she grows rapidly until she remembers her previous life and can transform into Sailor Saturn. When reunited, the powers of all the Sailor Guardians combine to give Sailor Moon her final form, Eternal Sailor Moon.
Because of the mirror part in his eye, Mamoru becomes brainwashed by Nehellenia, and she kidnaps him. This throws Chibi-usa into a time paradox because with her father gone, she will not be able to be born and thus starts to fade. The Sailor Guardians all go to confront Nehellenia and rescue Mamoru; however they all become separated along the way, and each becomes trapped by Nehellenia in mirrors. Usagi finally manages to reach Nehellenia. It turns out that Neherenia really wanted a friend and was lonely by herself, so she gained beauty from a mirror to gain admiration from others, but once she discovered that she couldn't remain beautiful forever, she turned evil. Usagi feels deep sympathy for her, as do the other Sailor Guardians (all of them are crying), and they break free of their mirrors. Mamoru is freed from Nehellenia's spell, Sailor Chibi Moon returns, and then Sailor Moon returns Nehellenia to her home to start over, where she wakes up as a small child having a bad dream.
The second arc introduces Sailor Galaxia and the Anima mates who are after the star seeds of the Sailor Guardians. The Anima mates target people who they think will have the light of the star seeds, but they always fail. All of them discover the identities of the Sailor Guardians, but all of them die before they can actually reveal this information to Sailor Galaxia.
The Three Lights, an idol rock band, appear in Tokyo at the same time as the Animamates. Their true identities are the Sailor Starlights, Sailor Guardians from a different galaxy. Their goal is to find their Princess.
Mamoru leaves to Harvard for a year or so in a plane, but it turns out that while in flight, Sailor Galaxia came and took his star seed. In the meantime in Tokyo, Chibi-usa has gone home to the future, and in her stead, Chibi-chibi arrives, posing as Usagi's little sister after brainwashing Usagi's mom. She has the chalice, which she uses to help Princess Fireball come to Earth. She also gives Eternal Sailor Moon her new power-up and is revealed to be a Guardian.
Most of Sailor Stars focuses on the Three Lights interacting with the Sailor Guardians and the search for the star seeds. Seiya has a crush on Usagi, but Usagi does not feel the same. The Outer Senshi are extremely hostile to the Starlights because they feel they do not belong on Earth. Eventually the Sailor Starlights find their princess, Princess Fireball, who saves Usagi and Chibi-Chibi from Tin Nyanko. However, she is soon killed by Sailor Galaxia after her star seed is extracted from her.
The Inner Guardians and the Sailor Starlights confront Sailor Galaxia, but Sailor Galaxia merely kills off the Inner Guardians, taking their star seeds as well. She then starts to do massive star seed collecting all over Tokyo, taking any and every one from all the people. The Outer Guardians go by themselves to fight Galaxia, but they are also ineffective. Uranus and Neptune then agree to give up their star seeds to work under Sailor Galaxia, killing Pluto and Saturn to prove their loyalty. They also attack the Sailor Starlights and Sailor Moon, but when given their final order to destroy their former allies, Uranus and Neptune turn on Sailor Galaxia, trying to take her star seed. Since Sailor Galaxia doesn't have a star seed, this doesn't do much, and she kills them instead.
Sailor Moon, Chibi-chibi, and the Sailor Starlights are left, and actually the Sailor Starlights do pretty little in the battle except to protect Sailor Moon. Chibi-chibi finally reveals her nature- she is the hope of Sailor Galaxia's star seed who was released when Chaos entered Sailor Galaxia's body, turning her evil. Chibi-Chibi transforms into a sword for Sailor Moon/Princess Serenity to destroy Galaxia, but Sailor Moon refuses to use it. Sailor Moon finally wins the battle by reaching towards the goodness left inside of Sailor Galaxia, and Sailor Galaxia becomes good again once Chaos leaves her body. She releases all the star seeds, and then she leaves. The other Sailor Guardians, Princess Fireball, and Mamoru return to life, and then the Sailor Starlights leave with their princess as life returns to normal at the end of the series.

Vietnamese Title: Thủy thủ Mặt trăng Pha lê
PlotThe first two seasons of the new anime consists of twenty-six episodes; of thirteen each. It focuses mainly on how the Sailor Team was formed, battling and defeating new and stronger enemies, and meeting new Sailor Guardians along the way. It focuses only on the first two arcs of the manga.
First Arc: Dark KingdomWhile she is hurrying to get to her school on time one day, fourteen-year-old Usagi Tsukino accidentally steps on a black cat. When she picks it up and takes off the band aids on its forehead, she notices a crescent shaped symbol on the cat's forehead. Usagi, however, thinks that it's just a bald spot and runs off to school. Later that day, Usagi takes a nap, only to be awakened by the cat from earlier that day. To her surprise, the cat starts talking to her and introduces itself as Luna. Luna tells Usagi that she is destined to become a Sailor Guardian, and gives her a mystical brooch that enables her to transform into Sailor Moon by calling out Moon Prism Power! Make Up! After transforming, Sailor Moon hears her good friend, Naru, screaming and goes to rescue her from a Youma. After defeating the Youma, she meets Tuxedo Mask, a mysterious man who encouraged her to defeat the Youma during the fight. The next day, Usagi wakes up to go to school thinking that what happened that night was dream, that is, until she hears Naru telling her friends about what happened the previous night. Soon, Usagi finds out that not only does she need to find the other Sailor Guardians, but she also has to find the Moon Princess and protect the supremely powerful Silver Crystal from the Dark Kingdom; a mysterious group of villains that attempt to steal life energy from humans to strengthen and revitalize their ruler Queen Metaria to dominate Earth and exact their vengeance on the people of the White Moon, who have been reborn and reincarnated as "ordinary" teenage girls on Earth. Usagi eventually finds the other five Sailor Guardians -Sailor Mercury, Sailor Mars, Sailor Jupiter, and Sailor Venus- and finds out that Tuxedo Mask is actually Mamoru Chiba, a man that had previously made fun of her about multiple things, including her low test grades and her Buns-like hairstyle. He and Usagi later begin to fall in love with each other. However, during a battle with Kunzite, Tuxedo Mask injures himself while trying to protect Sailor Moon from an attack, causing him to lose consciousness as well. Sailor Moon is overwhelmed with sadness when this happens and after crying out in anguish, her tiara breaks, revealing a crescent moon symbol on her forehead and instantly transforms into Princess Serenity, the Princess of the Moon Kingdom, Silver Millennium. After regaining her memories of her past life, one of her teardrops reveals the vastly powerful, legendary Silver Crystal itself, which starts to send out immense healing energy throughout the city. After attempting to attack the newly awakened Serenity, Queen Beryl and Kunzite abduct an unconscious Tuxedo Mask.
To find answers, Luna takes the five Sailor Guardians to the Moon, where the ruins of Silver Millennium lie. The spirit of a young woman with silver hair appears before them and thanks Luna for bringing them here. She reveals to Sailor Moon that she is/was her mother in her past life, Queen Serenity. She explains that they all lived happily on the Moon with their beloved kingdom, the very first era of Silver Millennium. However, an evil entity from the cosmos, Queen Metalia, arrived out of the blue and brainwashed the humans of Earth to plan a major assault on the Moon Kingdom.After returning home, Usagi runs into Mamoru, who she is shocked to discover has been brainwashed by Queen Beryl. A battle in another dimension takes place between Queen Beryl and the five Sailor Guardians. Sailor Venus manages to kill her by using the holy sword. Endymion runs off with Sailor Moon in pursuit. Elsewhere, the four Inner Sailors are confronted by the four Knights, who they succeed in freeing from Queen Metalia's control. Before they can embrace, Queen Metalia kills them all. Saddened at the loss of their sweethearts, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Venus are told by Kunzite to keep on fighting to protect their princess. In the headquarters of Dark Kingdom, Sailor Moon uses the sword to stab Endymion in the chest and then herself.
She collapses on top of Tuxedo Mask and the others are horrified to have the tragedy repeated yet again. The complete Silver Crystal suddenly grows and envelops Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask in it before disappearing. Sailors' Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Venus all teleport after them. A hurt Luna asks Artemis to teleport her to the Moon. He does so, and Luna desperately pleads for Queen Serenity to show herself once more.
Second Arc: Black MoonA few weeks after the obliteration of Queen Metalia and her bewitched Earth minions, the five Sailor Guardians' are living a time of peace and harmony. Usagi receives a brand new and much stronger transformation brooch, called the Crystal Star, from the ghostly spirit of Queen Serenity, and transforms into an even stronger evolution of her standard Sailor form. She also obtains a much stronger mystical scepter to defeat any new enemies she might encounter: The Cutie Moon Rod, whose purifying/destroying moon-based attack is Moon Princess Halation.
As their regular and basic transformation pens were destroyed during their final showdown with Queen Metalia, Ami, Rei, Makoto and Minako are each given the much stronger and more powerful Star Power Sticks by Luna, as well as newer wristwatch communicators. Usagi and Mamoru have now grown closer in an official romantic relationship, but are interrupted by a young, bright pink-haired girl falling from the sky from a mysterious portal. This girl, calling herself "Usagi," demands the vastly powerful Silver Crystal from Usagi. Unfortunately, the Black Moon clan have arrived on Earth and are after Chibi-usa (whom they refer to as "the Rabbit") in order to obtain the legendary Silver Crystal of the future and destroy it, as it is no match for the increasingly vast amounts of evil energies from the Malefic Black Crystal that they possess. To accomplish this, they seek to abduct Chibi-usa for their own purposes.
Things get more and more difficult and uncertain when Sailor Mars, Sailor Mercury and Sailor Jupiter are all abducted and taken to planet Nemesis as captives. Fortunately, with the help of Chibiusa and another Sailor Soldier, Sailor Moon and her closest friends' go the future to learn more about the Black Moon and what are their ultimate goals involving Chibi-usa and the all-powerful Silver Crystal are.Ultimately, Wiseman finally takes charge and reveals himself as the embodiment of Nemesis itself: the Death Phantom. Desiring to help her fellow Sailor Senshi from beyond her post, Sailor Pluto (with the encouragement from Diana) gladly goes through the Space-Time Door with the young Guardian-kitten guarding it in her stead; breaking the second taboo. No longer trusting anyone, Prince Demande succeeds in taking both Silver Crystals of the past and future with the intention of merging them into one large Silver Crystal, which would result in the utter annihilation and nonexistence of both eras. In a desperate attempt to stop this disastrous catastrophe from occurring, Sailor Pluto breaks the third and last taboo: she freezes all of time. This gives Sailor Moon an opportunity to take the Silver Crystals from Prince Demande and use them to eliminate Death Phantom once and for all. Having violated the third and final code she was forever bound to, Sailor Pluto dies to serve her "punishment" of eternal rest in Crystal Tokyo. Seeing her closest friend "die" before her very eyes, causes the real Chibi-usa to awaken and drive Black Lady out of her subconscious mind, and becomes Sailor Chibi Moon for the first time. Her true awakening as a Sailor Guardians results in Neo Queen Serenity's own awakening from her longtime slumber.
Now awake, Neo Queen Serenity bestows much stronger planet powers on Sailors' Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Venus, and gifts Sailor Moon with the third evolution of her standard Sailor form with the Cosmic Heart Compact and a more powerful weapon-the Spiral Heart Moon Rod-to fight new enemies. With the past and future saved from nonexistence, Chibi-usa decides to stay in the twentieth century to continue her training in order to become a full-fledged Sailor Guardian.
Third Arc: Death BustersA few months have passed since the defeat of Death Phantom, and Usagi, Ami, Rei, Makoto, Minako, and Chibi-usa have all enjoyed their daily lives in peace and harmony. With the third evolution of their standard Sailor forms and much stronger elemental abilities, the four Inner Sailor Senshi are prepared for anything. Chibiusa is glad to train in order to become the sixth Sailor Guardian of the team by transforming into Sailor Chibi Moon. With the mystical Cosmic Heart Compact in her possession, Usagi now transforms into the third evolution of her regular Sailor form and is even stronger than ever with the Heart Moon Rod as her newest weapon. However, new forces arise out the blue, using vile monsters called Daimon. In addition to this new threat, two new mysterious Sailor Senshi appear, but have ambiguous intentions. To make matters worse, Mamoru and Rei begin to have vividly recurring nightmares about the annihilation of the world, where the Messiah obliterates everything and everyone with a long sickle-like weapon.
As new mysteries and disturbing secrets are brought to light, these new villains (who are called "the Death Busters") are gradually harnessing a great power within someone that will lead the Earth toward annihilation. In addition, a tenth Sailor Guardian is introduced; one who is considered the strongest and most feared of all.
In the climax, Sailor Chibi Moon evolves into Super Sailor Chibi Moon (with the sacred power of her very own Holy Grail), and combines her new-found Super Sailor abilities with those of Super Sailor Moon to annihilate Mistress 9. Unfortunately, their efforts prove futile as she merges with Pharaoh 90. Super Sailor Moon seemingly sacrifices herself to exterminate Pharaoh 90 by entering him directly and releasing the immense powers of both the Holy Grail and the Silver Crystal against him. It is then that three talismans glow and resonate; therefore awakening the last and strongest of the Sailor Guardian - Sailor Saturn, the Guardian of Death and Destruction.
Once awakened, she unleashes her supremely powerful destructive and deathly abilities upon Pharaoh 90, and ultimately brings about the complete annihilation and nonexistence of the entire world by dropping her Silence Glaive down on its edge. Fortunately, Super Sailor Moon appears unscathed; thus giving the four Inner Sailor Guardians and three of the Outer Guardians to evolve into their own Super Sailor forms. Reveling in the agony and disintegration she has brought upon Pharaoh 90, Sailor Saturn assures everyone that "always with the end comes hope and rebirth" and that the only one capable of bringing such holy power forth is Super Sailor Moon herself. The Guardian of Death and Ruin then urges Super Sailor Pluto to forever close the door to the forbidden realm, even though she would be taken as well. Super Sailor Pluto calls on the mighty power of her guardian deity, Chronos himself, and seals the Door; thus sealing both Pharaoh 90 and Sailor Saturn away. Super Sailor Moon then becomes Neo Queen Serenity and uses the great healing powers of the Spiral Heart Moon Scepter to revitalize the Earth and reverse all that was wiped out by Pharaoh 90 and Sailor Saturn's supreme deadly powers. It is then that a bright purple light emanates from the ruins, where the cries of a newborn are heard by Super Sailor Neptune, who realizes that it is indeed Sailor Saturn; her spirit once again reborn and reincarnated as Hotaru Tomoe. She, along with Super Sailor Uranus and Super Sailor Pluto make the vow to raise her as their own "sister," being all alone in the world. The trio part ways with the others, stating they will surely meet again someday, as they are all allies and friends. To symbolize that promise, Super Sailor Neptune gives her mystical Deep Aqua Mirror to Super Sailor Chibi Moon and tells her to look in it for guidance, and to become an even stronger Guardian of the Future Moon by the next time they meet.
A few days later, Usagi, Ami, Makoto and Minako have all enrolled in High School and discuss their respective interests and future careers, with Mamoru as a first-year university student. Chibiusa and Diana appear, ready to return home to the thirtieth century. In the papers, a solar eclipse is imminent that very night, which sparks Usagi's curiosity. As she Chibiusa look on at the sunset with their eclipse glasses, they both have a mysterious vision of jingling bells and pink flower petals and white feathers.
