  10. 'The Cursed Bus: Enter Mars, the Guardian of Fire': The Shinto Temple: Come to recruit your new ally, stay to be sexually harassed by your new ally's Dirty Old Man grandfather. Also, why do they keep running buses to this stop after the first one vanished?

  18. 'Shingoís Love: the Grieving Doll': Usagi's brother crushes on a girl that makes creepy dolls that turn creepier when The Dark Kingdom gets their hands on them. Shingo's not much of a sculptor but his heart's in the right place.
  19. 'Usagiís Joy: A Love Letter from Tuxedo Mask': Nephrite wears a bad Tuxedo Mask costume, but Naru falls in love with him anyway while Usagi is jealous when everyone else gets a letter from the caped one.
  20. 'The Summer, the Beach, Youth and Ghosts': Mid-summer is the perfect time for a Halloween Episode, right?
  21. 'Protect the Childrenís Dreams: Friendship Through Anime': The show goes meta when an overworked animator is targeted via her worn-down pencils. The sailor scouts combine forces to destroy friendship. Shot on location at the animation studio.

  28. 'The Painting of Love: Usagi and Mamoru Get Closer': Usagi misplaces an important magical artifact and reenacts Duck Amuck with a demon who used to be a reclusive painter whose artwork only got popular because she didn't go by her real name (just like almost every celebrity ever). And Sailor Moon actually saves Tuxedo Mask for a change.
  29. 'Total Chaos: The Messy Love Rectangle': Mamoru thinks Motoki is weird for dating a fellow university student instead of Middle School students. That's the opposite of weird, you creepazoid, but hey, that's Japan for ya. Meanwhile, Makoto enters housewife mode to try and seduce the video game arcade clerk, which is also kinda messed up...
  30. 'Grandpa Loses Control: Rei in Danger': Rei's grandpa goes more than a little crazy, Rei meets a traveling vagabond who falls madly in love with her, Usagi tries to play matchmaker.

  32. 'Umino's Resolve: I'll Protect Naru': Usagi decides to play matchmaker for Umino and Naru by encouraging Umino to be brave and strong like Tuxedo Mask. It doesn't go as planned. Zoisite uses dirty tricks to steal the yellow crystal.
  33. 'Enter Venus, the Last Sailor Guardian': The villain's most successful plan yet revolves primarily around cross-dressing, and they would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for that meddling Sailor V!
  34. 'The Sparkling Silver Crystal: The Moon Princess Appears': Despite mounting evidence, Usagi still can't figure out who Tuxedo Mask is until it's basically too late. Zoisite tops the charts with two named character kills, making him more effective than 99% of villains in pretty much all media.
  35. 'Returning Memories: Usagi and Mamoru's Past': Tuxedo Mask gets pretty kidnapped, and Zoisite gets pretty dead. Sailor Moon has a mental break over being The Moon Princess and humanity's only hope for survival as Kunzite beats the rest of the Sailor Scouts senseless before she snaps out of it.
  36. 'Usagiís Confusion: Is Tuxedo Mask Evil?': Usagi is feeling a bit bummed over losing Mamoru and her new responsibilities, so Minako takes her out to get her hair did...and all the hairstylists turn into the unholy union between a Barbie salon playset and a G1 Transformer. Meanwhile, Tuxedo Mask has totally defected to the Dark Kingdom. Oh dear.
  37. 'Let's Become a Princess: Usagi's Bizarre Training': Usagi enrolls in a program on how to act like a proper lady. Tuxedo Mask and Kunzite work at cross purposes, while an oyster-based demon lady shoots snot out of her boobs and turns her star students into the latest works of art for Madame Tussaud's museum.
  38. 'The Snow, the Mountains, Friendship and Monsters': The crew go skiing, and it goes as well as you might expect. Usagi employs her secret flailing technique and sets a land speed record, and Rei gets over Tuxedo Mask and way into that Suicidal Shrine Guy. No accounting for taste...
  39. 'Paired with a Monster: Mako, the Ice Skating Queen': There are free skating lessons at a local rink by a pair of Olympic athletes. Usagi and one of the demons gets upset at Mako after she deadlifts a pretty-boy skater, showing girls everywhere the fun side of emasculating men. We witness an awesome demonic transformation sequence, and learn why short skirts might not be the best cold weather gear.
  40. 'The Legendary Lake Yokai: The Bond of Usagiís Family': Usagi's family goes on a lake trip to a hot spring. Endymion wakes up an ancient spirit and immediately regrets it because of her incredibly irritating voice acting. The Sailor Soldiers appear to be stalking Usagi and just waiting for her to screw up. Some friends they are.
  41. 'I Won't Run Away from Love Anymore: Ami vs. Mamoru': The Dark Kingdom run out of ideas and just plan to stick the Seven Youma together as if they were a combining robot. Ami still pretty much only knows how to shoot bubbles at things.
  42. 'Sailor Venusís Past: Minakoís Tragic Love'note : We learn about Sailor V's history as a badass vigilante, learn she can survive a grenade at close range, and witness somebody actually being mature about a relationship for a change. Usagi transforms in a sailor that isn't Sailor Moon.
  43. 'Usagi Abandoned: The Falling-Out of the Sailor Guardians': The Sailor Soldiers finally chuck Sailor Moon out for incompetence. We meet a ninja demon chick posing as a tabloid reporter with a strange verbal tic (and an even stranger work outfit), and it turns out Sailor Moon has customized stationery.
  44. 'Usagiís Awakening: A Message from the Distant Past': Kunzite sends the Sailor Soldiers on an excellent adventure through time to learn of their past lives. Sailor Moon comes back hardcore and waxes Kunzite with his own magic blade.
  45. 'Death of the Sailor Guardians: The Tragic Final Battle': The Sailor Scouts launch a suicide mission on the Dark Kingdom. They promptly all die, leaving the fate of the world in the hands of Sailor Moon. We're doomed.
  46. 'Usagiís Eternal Wish: a Brand New Life': Sailor Moon redeems Endymion, becomes the Princess, and presses the Reset Button located directly in Queen Beryl/Metaria's face. That's the Power of Love, folks!note 

    Sailor Moon R 

The second series, 43 episodes (episodes 47-89 overall)

  1. 'Moon Returns: The Mysterious Aliens Appear': While the former Sailor Scouts and Usagi are enjoying life as normal girls, a pair of plant aliens show up and immediately drag things into some super dumb relationship nonsense. Apparently all you need to be a vampire is to yell "Vampire!" as if you were a Pokemon. Luna is forced to restore Usagi's memories, power, and the Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder that accompanies it.
  2. 'For Love and for Justice: Sailor Guardians Once Again': The former Sailor Soldiers all get scouted for the same audition somehow. Plus Naru??? Unsurprisingly, Usagi isn't up to the challenge so Luna has to restore everyone else's power.
  3. 'For Whom is the White Rose? The Moonlight Knight Appears': A guy that totally isn't Tuxedo Mask in Aladdin cosplay shows up to save the Sailor Soldiers from a furry. Makoto fights on despite recently donating blood to the only boy that she considers a platonic friend.
  4. 'Usagiís Crisis: The Tiara Stops Working': It sure is the '90s as Usagi goes to a "virtual reality" arcade. Usagi tries and fails to rekindle the romance between her and Mamoru, and has some performance issues regarding her tiara. And wait, how the heck is Mamoru not Moonlight Knight?
  5. 'A New Transformation: Usagi's Power Up': On Cherry Blossom Day, the villains unleash a freaky ghost lady that kicks the Sailor Soldiers around a bit, necessitating Sailor Moon go on a vision quest to get a shiny new wand to beat them up with.
  6. 'The Targeted Kindergarteners: Venus to the Rescue': In which nobody knows who Sailor Venus is, kindergarteners are bizarrely sarcastic and philosophical, and Usagi cares nothing for the plight of children.
  7. 'Mamoru and Usagi's Babysitting Mayhem': The baddies, outclassed at every turn, start targeting babies, which hits Ami's Berserk Button. Meanwhile, Mamoru and Usagi basically kidnap a child.
  8. 'The School Festival Is for Me?! Queen Reiís Song': Rei takes over her school's culture festival for her own selfish desires. The aliens are found out by ordinary high school students, but unfortunately survive the experience.
  9. 'Is Seijuro the Moonlight Knight? Mako on Fire': Mako thinks the alien dude might be Moonlight Knight and goes on a lunch date with him, while Usagi searches for food after forgetting her lunch. Later, the sailor scouts fight a cardian who would be right at home in a hair metal band.
  10. 'Steal a Kiss from Mamoru! An's Project Snow White': We learn Mamoru is a thespian, and the Sailor Scouts are roped into his terrible play, but despite Makoto's convincing argument nobody can agree who will play the lead.
  11. 'After School Trouble: Usagi is a Target': Natsumi and Usagi have to stay late because of Ms. Sakurada's personal problems. Also, it's opposite day for Cardians.
  12. 'The Lovers' Hearts Disagree! The Angry Makaiju': Natsumi and Seijuuro skip class, prompting Usagi to drop in unannounced and start poking through their stuff. Meanwhile, Luna uses Artemis as a test subject for a dangerous biohazard.
  13. 'True Love Awakens! The Makaiju's Secret': The aliens learn the meaning of love, the Doom Tree speaks, and Moonlight Knight was Mamoru all along... somehow.
  14. 'An Angel? A Devil? Mysterious Girl From the Sky': A tiny, somehow even more irritating version of Usagi retcons her way into Usagi's life at the point of a gun, on the run from a team of evil, tastelessly dressed aerobics instructors (Cocktail waitresses? Hookers?) from the future.
  15. 'Huge Shock for Usagi! Mamoru Declares a Break Up': Mamoru finally comes to his senses about being with Usagi, and Usagi tries to find solace in a cosmetics boutique.
  16. 'The Friendship of the Sailor Senshi! Goodbye Ami': Ami very nearly takes a cue from Mamoru and tries to bail to Germany to be a doctor, but is stopped by some last-ditch emotional manipulation. Meanwhile, the rest of the Sailor Senshei nearly freeze to death in an ice cream shop possessed by the Dark Moon Clan.
  17. 'Women Should Be Strong and Beautiful! Rei's New Killer Move': Rei's grandpa opens the shrine for women's wrestling practice to downplay the fact that he's a Dirty Old Man (yeah...that's not really a good idea). Koan and a wrestler droid named Rhonda try to put a stop to it, but Sailor Moon and Co. intervene to save the old creep.
  18. 'In Search of the Silver Crystal! Chibiusa's Secret': Usagi and Chibiusa are roughly equally afraid of lightning...and an obnxious, drum-playing droid. And Usagi? On behalf of all the men in this city: Thanks for wearing a short skirt while flying. You've given me a lot to think about.
  19. 'Dispute Over Love! Minako and Makoto Face Off': Two of the Sailor Scouts get in a fight over their respective tragic backstories while Usagi drinks potion to excess because of her breakup.
  20. 'Usagi's Parental Love? A Curry Triangle Relationship': Usagi still can't cook, Minako nearly goes to the hospital, and there's some bizarre racial imagery with this week's Droid.
  21. 'The Ocean! The Island! A Vacation! A Break for the Sailor Senshi': Obligatory beach episode go! Apparently Rei just straight up owns an entire island or something? Also, dinosaurs for some reason? Yeah, Let's just pretend this episode didn't happen. DiC sure as hell did.
  22. 'Protect Chibiusa! Clash of the Ten Warriors': Somebody gets peed on for the second time this season. We finally learn a bit about the villains and a little bit about why Chibiusa is here.
  23. 'Awaken, Sleeping Beauty! Mamoru's Distress': Mamoru still blows off Usagi, who becomes so depressed she eats her feelings and lets a droid named Hypnotica put her in a deep sleep. Will Mamoru swallow his pride and rescue his true love? Of course he will!
  24. 'A Battle of the Flames of Love! Mars vs Koan': Rei and Rubeus still treat their respective love interests like crap, but Rubeus wins when he disses Koan for wearing too much perfume and make-up and, to add injury to insult, hands Koan a bomb as a break-up gift. Cold.
  25. 'For Friendship! Ami and Berthier Clash': Ami enters a chess tournament — and so does Berthier, who's on thin ice after a failed capture. And speaking of thin ice, Berthier attempts to freeze herself and everyone around her when Calaveras and Petz refuse to help her.
  26. 'Cold Hearted Rubeus! The Four Sisters of Sorrow': Ruebeus gives Petz a super-powered wand and it drives her crazy. Calaveras' poor choice of words gets her nuked, and the Sailor Scouts climb into a black hole and magic it to death.
  27. 'A UFO Appears! The Sailor Senshi are Abducted': Chibiusa steals the Silver Crystal and basically hands it over to the villains. Usagi devours cookies too quickly for the animation to follow and, for some reason, Mamoru owns a tiny Tuxedo Mask puppet.
  28. 'Defeat Rubeus! The Battle in Space': Sailor Moon and Chibusa teleport up to space. Rubeus does what every sci-fi villain ought to do and kicks her ass with the artificial gravity of his ship, but after some clever sabotage, Rubeus is left to die on his exploding spaceship.
  29. 'A Mysterious New Warrior, Sailor Pluto Appears': The Sailor Scouts take a journey into Chibiusa's mind to save her from a demon. Usagi must have spent her experience points from defeating Ruben because she swordfights Death, gives an awesome speech, and is generally bad-ass the entire episode. Wait, what show is this again?
  30. 'Magical Power of Darkness! Esmeraude's Invasion': Sailor Moon decides to drown her sorrows in sweets. The new villain comes along and joins her. The droid of the week is made out of sugar, so Sailor Mercury finally gets to do something useful with her water powers.
  31. 'Our Feelings are the Same! Usagi and Mamoru in Love Once Again': Usagi gets into making those little promise bracelet things, just in case you forgot this was the 1990s. Surprise! It's an evil plot. And we learn that you can actually run after Tuxedo Mask when he does his Batman disappearing-into-the-night act.
  32. 'Venus Minako's Nurse Mayhem': Everyone has the flu (it's an evil plot) and Minako decides she's going to "help". It goes just about as well as you'd expect from a Dumb Blonde like Minako.
  33. 'Artemis' Adventure! The Evil Animal Kingdom': Artemis has had enough of Luna being awful to him and wanders off to prove his feline masculinity. This leads him to the world's most awesome animal shelter, which is promptly taken over by the Black Moon. People getting peed on makes a triumphant return.
  34. 'Terrifying Illusion! Ami All Alone': The villains strike Ami where she's weak — right in the friendship, which turns her into a paranoid schizophrenic when she sees images of her friends bad-mouthing her and violently beats them. Fortunately, she sees through the illusions and defeats the monster of the episode. Moving on...
  35. 'Dark Gate Completed? A Grade School in Danger': The villains turn Chibiusa's grade school into Thunderdome. The Sailor Scouts straight up murder the bad guys this week. No, they weren't demons or robots, but they just got Moon Princess Eliminated for real.
  36. 'Journey to the Future! Battle in the Space-Time Corridor': The gang do the time warp again, meet Sailor Pluto, and get lost in space-time forever. Chibiusa finally stands up for herself in a shockingly ineffective manner.
  37. 'The Shocking Future! Demande's Dark Ambition': In the grim darkness of the third millennium, there is only war. Future!Usagi is of course sleeping through it. The gang meet a hologram of Future!Tuxedo Mask, who finally explains everything. Rei asks the important questions about Chibiusa's conception, while Demande abducts Usagi and brainwashes her into kissing him. Gross.
  38. 'Wiseman's Evil Hand! Chibiusa Disappears': Chibiusa wanders off and gets kidnapped (yup, definitely related to Usagi). Meanwhile, Esmeralda goes to Wiseman for a power-up, and enjoys it for all but two minutes.
  39. 'The Birth of Black Lady, The Queen of Darkness': Wiseman casts some hypnosis whammy on Chibiusa and ages her up to Evil. Sailor Moon used The Power of Love! It's not very effective...
  40. 'Saphir Dies! Wiseman's Trap': Saphir decides that maybe listening to the Evil Space Lich is a bad idea and defects to hang out with the Weird Sisters (one of whom he used to date). In response, Wiseman energy beams him to death in front of his own brother.
  41. 'Believe in Love and the Future! Usagi's Determination': The Sailor Scouts go charging off into a giant evil crystal because, yeah, that's definitely a good idea. Sailor Moon gets separated and Demande comes back for round two of his brand of creepy seduction, but Usagi gets the drop on him, and Demande goes the way of his brother seconds later, proving that he does have a good heart underneath the Pepe Le Pew-esque stalker-rapist vibe.
  42. 'The Final Battle Between Light and Darkness! Love Sworn to the Future': Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask use The Power of Love to cure Wickednote  Lady Chibiusa! It's Super Effective! Wiseman's Evil Dark Crystal is no match for Silver Crystal Double Trouble! Chibiusa bids a sad goodbye, gets in her deLorean and goes back to the future.
  43. 'Usagi and the Girls' Resolve! Prelude to a New Battle': The girls get ultimate power of space and time in order to break the forth wall, and use it to do a clip show/next season preview.

The Movie
  • Sailor Moon R Movie: Mamoru's ex-boyfriend returns with a vengeance. No, really, he's bringing a giant asteroid that will destroy the Earth with killer flowers.
  • 'Make up! Sailor Senshi': Some Sailor Guardian fangirls helpfully run down the first season. AKA: "Let's All Go To The Lobby"

    Sailor Moon S 

The third series, 38 episodes (episodes 90-127 overall)

  1. 'Premonition of World's End? Mysterious New Warriors': Rei has some serious Terminator 2 flashbacks. An evil scientist unleashes a monster that steals Rei's heart with her cleavage, which is defeated by two silhouettes. New recording of the opening theme!
  2. 'The Rod of Love is Born! Usagi's New Transformation': There's a house filled with stray cats... and an evil catgirl demon which beats up the Sailor Scouts like it was no thing. The new Sailor Silhouettes leave the team hanging. Usagi and Mamoru get together to create a new transformation sequence and final attack!
  3. 'A Beautiful Boy? The Secret of Haruka Tenou': We're introduced to Sailors Uranus and Nepture. Haruka begins her seduction of the entire cast with Usagi and Minako. Features probably the silliest monster design in the entire series so far, and that's saying something.
  4. 'Usagi's Idol! The Graceful Genius Michiru': Usagi is jealous of Michiru's charm, skill, and access to Haruka. A classy recital is interrupted by another extremely silly monster.
  5. 'Protect the Pure Heart! A Three-Way Battle': The villains target Motoki's sister Unazuki and steal her heart. The new Sailor Scouts turn out to not actually be in the business of saving lives. The monster this week really sucks. Someone almost gets kissed.
  6. 'Leave it to the Moon for Love Aid': Umino and Naru are having relationship trubs. Usagi "helps". Haruka and Michiru are objectively better at romance than anyone else. I have the numbers right here.
  7. 'Cold-Hearted Uranus? Makoto in Trouble': Makoto falls head over heels for Haruka. Yes, sure, you just admire her. Right. We get some hints as to the difficult job of the Outer Sensei and their cynical worldview. The villain this week turns out to be weirdly adorable under her flasher coat.
  8. 'The Labyrinth of Water! Ami the Targeted': Shocking everyone, Ami comes into direct contact with Haruka and Michiru and doesn't fall in love with either of them. Either she's the only straight Sailor Scout, or she's some kind of robot. The water-themed enemy of the week can't swim.
  9. 'Save Friends! Moon and Uranus Join Forces': A bunch of idiots try to murder Haruka over a dirtbike race. Usagi kinda gets into being handcuffed to Sailor Uranus.
  10. 'The Kindness of a Man! Yuuichirou, Heartbroken by Rei?': Rei continues to treat her sorta-boyfriend like dirt. Next stop: Super-weird train demon.
  11. 'Retire From the Sailor Senshi? Minako's Concerns': Minako wants out of the Sailor Soldier business to do normal teenager things like play volleyball, but it turns out that she can do both kinda.
  12. 'Usagi in Tears! Glass Shoes for her Birthday': I'm not saying she's a gold digger, but she ain't messing with no broke... uh, Usagi she gets Mamoru to buy her some glass slippers as a birthday present, and then they immediately get turned into a demon. This is why we can't have nice things, Usagi!
  13. 'The Pure Heart Stolen! Usagi's Biggest Crisis': Picking up from the previous episode...without her transforming trinket, Usagi can finally be replaced as Sailor Moon by somebody competent (Read: LOL, no!) The new Sailor Scouts take out the first of the villains. Four more to go!
  14. 'The Arrival of the Tiny Pretty Senshi': At a local festival, the new arrival from the Witches 5 dispenses with the BS and employs drive-by shooting. Chibiusa pops back in from the future with Baby's First Special Attack.
  15. 'Seeking Friends! Chibi Moon's Actions': Chibi-Usa tries to find friends her age in the present, and meets a boy (who for some reason is a girl in the Cloverway dub) who wants to be a Sailor scout just like her.
  16. 'Wanting More Power! Mako's Lost Path': Makoto takes a sabbatical in the country after fearing she may not be strong enough. Come on, a girl like her, who fought while reeling from blood loss, took out a crane game monster before getting her powers, and can lift a pretty-boy Russian figure skater?
  17. 'The Bond of Destiny! The Distant Days of Uranus': Butt-pinching Schoolgirl Lesbians are HUGE targets for monsters. Also, we learn how Haruka and Michiru met. You can tell Ikuhara had fun with this episode.
  18. 'Art is an Explosion of Love! Chibiusa's First Love' Usagi, honey, you haven't improved as a matchmaker. Go fight the monster that stole the pure heart of Chibi-Usa's crush instead.
  19. 'Usagi's Dance, In Time to a Waltz': The girls are invited to a dance held by one of Mamoru's friends. Usagi gets wasted (again) and Eudial crashes the festivities.
  20. 'Shocking Moment! Mutual Identities Revealed': Apparently, being targeted for having a pure heart is just like being the first in your circle of friends to wear a bra or lose your virginity and not being targeted means you're a late bloomer. At least that's what Minako thinks in this episode...
  21. 'Death of Uranus and Neptune? Talismans Appear': Suicide is only painless if the gun you're using to blow your chest out reveals that you and your lesbian partner are the very Talisman holders you were looking for.
  22. 'The Grail's Divine Power! Moon's Double Transformation': Continuing from the previous episode, Haruka and Michiru aren't convinced that Sailor Moon is their messiah. Meanwhile, Eudial picks a bad time to freak out over snails, and that time is "while driving on a cliff overlooking the ocean in a car with failing brakes."
  23. 'Who is the True Messiah? Chaos of Light and Darkness': The girls go down to the park to watch a local shooting of a movie and Mimette becomes the new head of Witches 4.
  24. 'A House Full of Evil Presence! The Secret of the Beautiful Girl, Hotaru': Chibi-Usa makes a new friend...who may be related to the enemy. And Haruka and Michiru declare Usagi to be a nuisance. Get in line, ladies.
  25. 'Crazy for Celebrities! Mimete in Doubt': Japanese idol singers are no different than the pop singers we have in the Western world. They have their share of loony, obsessive fans, like Minako and Mimette, who unwittingly become friends in their pursuit of this celebrity.
  26. 'Shadow of Silence!? The Pale Glimmer of a Firefly': Worried over her seizures and blackouts, Hotaru takes a page from Mamoru in the previous season and breaks off her friendship with Chibi-Usa with nothing to go on but the old "I'm afraid I might hurt you" excuse. Also, we get a great back view of Harukanote .
  27. 'Sunny Skies After a Storm! A Friendship Dedicated to Hotaru': It's dťjŗ vu all over again when the girls (and Mamoru) go on a picnic (like they did in "A New Transformation: Usagi's Power Up") and meet the park's botanist (like they did in "Usagiís Panic: Reiís First Date").
  28. 'Higher, Stronger! Cheers by Usagi': A runner can't keep up when Witches 4 goes after him for his pure heart. Also, Mimette enjoys her game of Twister a bit too much in both the Japanese version and the English dub note 
  29. 'The Battle in a Demonic Dimension! The Sailor Soldier's Bet': You know that expression, "Too many cooks spoil the broth"? Well, Mimette learns that too many objects in the daimon-making oven send their house into another dimension. Yeah, not as catchy as that other one...
  30. 'Awakening of the Messiah of Silence? Stars of Destiny': Rei's Terminator 2 style visions of death and destruction begin to come to fruition when the Inner and Outer Senshei discover who the Sovereign of Silence is. American viewers also learn that two red stars tastefully pasted on a pair of bare breasts is too much even for Cartoon Network's censors, which is why this highly-anticipated episode was temporarily banned.
  31. 'Invasion from an Alternate Dimension! The Mystery of Mugen Academy': Chibi-Usa searches for her missing friend (a stupid thing to do, considering the previous episode), and Mimette is the next to go after her appearance on television gets pulled.
  32. 'A Mystic Flower that Steals Hearts! The Third Witch, Tellu': Tellu now goes up to bat and uses plants to get pure hearts, only for it to go "Little Shop of Horrors" on her butt. Next!
  33. 'Believe in Love! Ami, a Kind-Hearted Soldier': Continuing from the previous episode, the Witches 5 is now down to 2 (and the next one gets destroyed just as quick as the previous one), Sailor Senshei use Tellu's student ID to investigate the mysterious Mugen School, and Ami worries over a student who tied with her as the highest-grading student in class.
  34. 'Shadows of Destruction! The Awakening of the Messiah of Silence': The last witch of the Witches 5 is one half of a twin set and the two destroy each other. Meanwhile, Kaolinite targets Chibi-Usa's pure heart and Mistress 9 (what happened to Mistresses 1-8?) awakens.
  35. 'The Horror of the Approaching Shadow! Eight Senshi in a Tough Battle': Tensions run high as Mistress 9 sends a blob monster made from daimon eggs after the Sailor Scouts and nearly lures Chibi-Usa into giving her the Purity Chalice.
  36. 'A Bright Shooting Star! Saturn, and the Messiah': Sailors Uranus, Neptune, and Moon are the only ones who can stop Mistress 9 and Pharaoh 90...and, if their teamwork is anything to go by, then humanity has nothing to do but put their heads between their legs and kiss their sorry asses goodbye.
  37. 'A New Life! Time for Separation of the Destined Stars': Haruka and Michiru are pissed over Usagi's little "use the Purity Chalice to turn one of their greatest enemies back into a baby to give her a second chance at life" stunt and decide to hand her ass to her in a junkyard fight...until Usagi proves what Haruka and Michiru should have known from the start about their messiah.
  38. 'Self-Awareness as a Soldier! Strength Lies in the Pure Heart': Once again, Chibi-Usa is called home to the future, but thinks the upcoming going-away party is the Inner and Outer Senshei's way of saying, "Go away, you little brat." And don't be fooled by Chibi-Usa's "That's the end of the story! Thank you for watching!" ending. There's about two more seasons of this show left.

The Movie
