First Stage (Anza, '93-'97)

    Gaiden Dark Kingdom Fukkatsu Hen (Side Story: Dark Kingdom Revival Chapter
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/81ovkltj8hl_sl1500.jpg
Usagi dreams of having fun with her friends ("Mystery Sagashi (Mystery Search)"). The dream grows dark as she hears the voices of the Dark Kingdom, including Queen Beryl. They announce that they have been revived and briefly appear before Usagi wakes up.

The next morning, Luna searches for Artemis in a panic to tell him that the Dark Kingdom has revived. The cats then set off to tell the girls.

The girls shop for swimsuits at a department store. Usagi arrives late and is still sleepy. Usagi tells the rest of the girls about her dream. She's initially panicked about the return of the Dark Kingdom, but eventually brushes it off as just a dream since they already defeated them. The group is joined by Haruna-sensei, who is also shopping for a swimsuit. Haruna-sensei suggests that they go to the beach with her ("Natsu wo Shimashou Vacation (Let's Do Summer Vacation)"). Rei senses something off and reveals that Haruna-sensei is a youma by using Akuryo Taisan.

Haruna-sensei transforms into the youma Manneguin and summons a squad of youma. They prevent the Senshi from transforming with their attacks. Manneguin questions the girls about where the Silver Crystal is, but after getting nowhere, she threatens to drain their energy instead. She is interrupted by a rose thrown by Tuxedo Mask. He enters the fray and immobilizes the youma with roses ("Bara no Himitsu (The Secret of the Rose)"). Luna and Artemis catch up to Usagi and confirm that the Dark Kingdom was indeed resurrected, but Usagi is still distracted by Tuxedo Mask. Luna reminds Usagi of her past life. Luna and Artemis get nostalgic as the scene fades to a flashback.

Princess Serenity and Prince Endymion dance together at a Moon Kingdom ball ("Waltz ni Koi wo Nosete (Love on a Waltz)"). The Sailor Senshi and Shitennou also dance together. The festivities are interrupted by news that Queen Beryl has manipulated the people of Earth into attacking the Moon Kingdom. Endymion attempts to rally everyone to fight off Queen Beryl, but the Shitennou attack the Inner Senshi as Queen Beryl reveals that they are under her control. The flashback ends when Usagi doesn't want to remember her sad past anymore and runs away.

Luna and Artemis go looking for Usagi in a park. Usagi meets up with the other Senshi and wants to go to the beach, but the others are no longer sure about going since youma have appeared again. Saitou Kun enters and goes backflipping past them. Minako reveals that he used to go to her school and she had a crush on him. The other girls push her into him, and he says that he remembers her as the cutest girl in school. He asks her if she likes anyone, and she reveals in a roundabout way that he was her first love ("Namikimichi no Koi (Love on the Tree-Lined Street"). Saitou confesses that he went to the tree-lined road to see her, and he asks her out.

Ami, Rei, and Makoto follow Minako and eavesdrop. When Minako catches them, Saitou introduces them to his gymnastics teammates, High School Students A, B, and C. They pair off, leaving Usagi all alone ("Saikyou no Couple Gundan (The Strongest Couple Squad)"). The four new couples run off to an astrology booth to have their love fortunes told.

Mamoru runs into Usagi and briefly teases her about being alone at an amusement park. Usagi starts to cry about being left alone, so Mamoru stays to comfort her. He offers to take Usagi to the beach once she's finished all of her summer vacation homework. She runs off crying since that won't happen until the end of summer, and Mamoru runs after her.

Luna and Artemis are still looking for the senshi, but the amusement park crowds are making it difficult. Artemis complains about women being fickle and sentimental, and Luna scolds him for his out-of-date views on women ("Onna no Ko no Shinsou (The Truth About Girls)"). Artemis apologizes, and they resume their search.

At the fortune-telling booth, the fortune-teller tells the couples that someone has a grudge against them. Ami and Rei realize that something is off. Just as Rei realizes that the fortune teller is cursing them, Usagi enters, and the fortune teller reveals herself as Queen Beryl. Beryl freezes the four Inner Senshi in place. The Inner Senshi call out for their boyfriends to help them, but they turn out to be the Shitennou in disguise. The Shitennou attack the Inner Senshi, demanding the Silver Crystal. Beryl demands the crystal from Usagi in exchange for her friends' safety, and Luna and Artemis enter to tell to tell her to not give it up. Tuxedo Mask arrives in time to stop Beryl from harming Usagi. He fights off the Shitennou and the youma squad, but is struck down and captured by Beryl. Beryl tells the Sailor Senshi to come to her castle with the Silver Crystal if they want him back. As the girls recover, Artemis tells them that the Dark Kingdom is once again at D Point, and Luna says that dark spots are now appearing on the sun. The girls resolve to stop the Dark Kingdom ("Sailor War").

At D Point, the Dark Kingdom are eager for Beryl to engulf the world in darkness ("Yami Koso Utsukushii (Darkness Is So Beautiful)"). Beryl plans to make Tuxedo Mask her husband once she is done using him as bait. The Senshi arrive and fight Beryl, the Shitennou, and the youma as Sailor Moon frees an unconscious Tuxedo Mask from his restraints. The Inner Senshi fight the Shitennou one-on-one. The Senshi deal each of them fatal blows, but the Shitennou manage to take the Senshi out with them as Sailor Moon looks on in horror. Tuxedo Mask, barely conscious, begs Sailor Moon to leave and return to being a normal girl. Beryl approaches from behind Sailor Moon to kill her, but Tuxedo Mask pushes her out of the way and takes the fatal blow instead. He apologizes to Sailor Moon as he dies, while Beryl gloats.

On a rooftop in Tokyo, Luna and Artemis look at the sun and worry that the end of the world is coming. They also worry that Usagi will use the Silver Crystal and die like Queen Serenity did. Luna wants to go to D Point, but Artemis restrains her, saying that there's nothing they can do now.

Beryl continues to gloat about her impending victory. Sailor Moon hears her friends' voices, but when she calls to them, they don’t reply. Moon says that she will never forgive Beryl. Beryl knocks her down and tells her that the world is an evil place, which is why she could gather so much energy. Sailor Moon declares that she believes in love, trust, and friendship, produces the Cutie Moon Rod, and resolves to use the Silver Crystal to stop Beryl, even if it costs her her life. Beryl attacks her again. Sailor Moon imagines her friends lending her their power. She thanks them and defeats Beryl. Before disappearing, Beryl swears that she will be revived so long as there is hatred in human hearts.

Luna and Artemis see the sky clear, but fear that Usagi is dead. As she dies, Sailor Moon wishes that she and her friends can return to normal lives before collapsing. Luna and Artemis arrive at the D Point, searching for the Senshi to no avail. Just as they are about to give up, Luna looks up at the moon. The Sailor Senshi and Tuxedo Mask are resurrected by the Silver Crystal, and everyone celebrates. ("La Soldier")

Notable Kaiteiban changes:

  • Mochizuki Yuuta (Kunzite in the original) replaces Mizuki Sano as Tuxedo Mask. Kasahara Ryuuji replaces him as Kunzite.
  • The story takes place in winter instead of summer, so the song "Natsu wo Shimashou Vacation" becomes “Fuyu wa Nantatte (What Winter is About)”.
  • The DD Girls have a slightly bigger role.

    Sailor Moon S - Usagi - Ai no Senshi e no Michi (The Path to Being a Soldier of Love
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/71unoqt57vl_sl1417.jpg
King Endymion tells the Sailor Senshi about an approaching crisis. Sailor Moon and the Inner Senshi are ready for the coming fight (“Solar Miracle, Make Up!”).

The Death Busters prepare to put their plans into action (“Talisman wo Sagase (Search For the Talismans!)"). The Professor has successfully created a Daimon Egg, which they plan to use to search for the Talismans. Their machine detects a Pure Heart, so the Professor sends out a Daimon Egg, and Kaolinite orders the Death Nightmares to follow it.

Usagi and Mamoru take a boat ride on a lake for their date (“Gondola no Koibito-tachi (Gondola Sweethearts)"). Just when things get romantic, their date is interrupted by Chibi-Usa's arrival ("Matamata Chibiusa Desu (Once Again, It's Chibi-Usa)"). Neo-Queen Serenity and King Endymion sent her to the 20th century to train as a Sailor Senshi. Chibi-Usa seems interested in hanging out with Mamoru, much to Usagi's chagrin. Suddenly, the lake freezes solid and their boat transforms into a Daimon. Daimon Gondola and the Death Nightmares appear and attack them. Gondola takes Chibi-Usa's heart crystal, but is thwarted by the arrival of Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune ("Chou Bi! Uranus to Neptune (Super Beauty! Uranus and Neptune)"). They destroy Gondola, drive away the Death Nightmares, and return Chibi-Usa's heart crystal when they see that it is not a Talisman.

The Death Mannetjes are convinced that their mimicking skills make them better suited for the job than the Death Nightmares. While waiting for them, Debu Re, who has the ability to smell pure hearts, catches the scent of one. They track it to a blue-haired girl at Hikawa Shrine.

Ami has been feeling restless lately. She wants to test herself and considers moving to Germany to study medicine. It turns out that she is not alone in her feelings; Rei wants to meditate in Tibet, Makoto wants to learn real Chinese cooking in China, and Minako has received an offer to join an international tour with the national volleyball team ("Dream Yume wa Ookiku (Dream, Dreams Are Big)"). Ami decides to go through with her plan.

When Usagi, Mamoru, and Chibi-Usa join up with them, Usagi is irritated that Chibi-Usa gets the girls' sympathies and attention, and she blames them for not being there when the enemies attacked (even though she had told them to stay away from her date). While they argue, the Death Mannetjes disguise themselves as Phobos, Deimos, Haruka and Michiru to kidnap Ami. The attempt fails miserably and a fight ensues, during which Usagi mostly chases Chibi-Usa around. She gets scolded for this afterwards and storms off. The others decide to go home. Chibi-Usa lingers outside the shrine for a while, wondering why those men seemed to be after Ami. Kaolinite and the Death Nightmares successfully lure Chibi-Usa into following them to the Death Busters' lair ("Chouhatsu (Provocation)”).

Professor Tomoe is not pleased. The Death Nightmares ("Muma no Odori (Nightmares' Dance)") failed to bring Chibiusa's Heart Crystal and lost the Daimon Gondola, and the Death Mannetjes lost a fight with a group of ordinary girls. They try to appease him with the news of Ami's pure heart, but it turns out Kaolinite is already aware of that fact and has secured Chibi-Usa as bait. Sailor Chibi Moon comes out of hiding. She puts up a fight, but Kaolinite seizes her. Tuxedo Mask appears and tries to save Chibi Moon, but the Death Busters retreat behind an energy screen and carry her into the shadows.

Rei, Makoto, and Minako meet up with Usagi to inform her about their plans to move away. She fears being left alone and asks if it is because of her. They tell her that Ami has already gone to the airport; she could not bear to face Usagi and say goodbye. Usagi goes to the airport and looks for Ami, but is unable to find her. She begins to surrender to the notion of being left behind as Ami prepares to board her flight ("Tabidachi (Departing)"). Suddenly, she hears Ami scream her name over the communicator - Kaolinite found her first and took her heart crystal. Usagi tries to go to her, but is stopped by the Death Nightmares. Tuxedo Mask appears and fights them back, but the Death Mannetjes dressed as Tuxedo Masks intercede (“Tuxedo Mission”). Tuxedo Mask tells Usagi that Chibi-Usa has been captured, but all five Tuxedo Masks talk and move in the same way and Usagi cannot tell who is the real one. When she finds one with Mamoru’s voice and scent, he claims to be one of the fakes and points out the one who is wearing a misanga (promise bracelet) identical to the one Usagi gave him on their date. This Tuxedo Mask protests, but the others beat him badly and throw him out a window, declaring Tuxedo Mask dead.

Usagi is stricken with grief. She finds Ami lying on a flight of stairs, her pure heart stolen. Ami asks Usagi's forgiveness for leaving without saying anything, and then slumps down lifeless. Uranus and Neptune arrive to see that they are too late, so they head for the Death Busters' base.

Usagi cannot bear any more, and collapses sobbing on the floor. The voices of Sailor Pluto and King Endymion reach her, telling her that she is strong and has a loving heart, and that she should extinguish her hatred because her true strength is in her kindness. Pluto offers to bring Usagi to the enemies' lair. She accepts and walks into the shadows, transforming into Princess Serenity as she goes.

Professor Tomoe gloats that Ami's pure heart crystal is in his possession. He sees that the Death Mannetjes are still dressed as Tuxedo Mask and tells them to remove their disguises. They do so, except one - the real Tuxedo Mask slipped his misanga onto Death Ru's wrist and took his place. Tuxedo Mask demands that they release Sailor Chibi-Moon and the heart crystal, but surrenders when Kaolinite threatens to kill her. Death Ra powers up. Uranus and Neptune arrive and fight the Death Busters. Tuxedo Mask tries to help them, but even together, they are no match for Death Ra's brute strength. Princess Serenity arrives and tries to protect the others with her own body. Serenity pleads with the Death Busters to stop their hatred and violence. They laugh and continue to fight. Kaolinite beats Sailor Chibi-Moon and is just about to kill her and Serenity when Sailor Jupiter, Sailor Mars, and Sailor Venus arrive.

A battle ensues. Sailor Uranus seizes Ami's heart crystal, sees that it is not a Talisman, and sends it off. The Death Mannetjes and Death Nightmares fall in combat one by one. Kaolinite rises up in a new powerful form and attacks the Senshi with lightning. Death Ra grabs Chibi-Moon and holds her up to Kaolinite, who sends bolts of energy through her. Serenity screams as Death Ra coolly hands over Chibi-Moon's lifeless body. She tries in vain to wake her, and transforms into Sailor Moon. Sailor Moon unleashes her Moon Spiral Heart Attack on Kaolinite, vaporizing her.

Professor Tomoe and Death Ra are the only Death Busters left. Tomoe brandishes the egg of a Daimon Atomic Bomber that will blast them all to oblivion. Just then, Sailor Mercury appears and blows the remaining enemies offstage. However, Chibi-Moon shows no sign of life and Sailor Moon is overwhelmed with grief. Tomoe taunts them, saying that the hatred Sailor Moon feels in her heart is what will make the Daimon Atomic Bomber hatch and explode.

The others try to get Sailor Moon to pull herself together. They remind her that she came there to protect those that she loves and that they all believe in her. Sailor Moon remembers King Endymion's words and begins to respond. Professor Tomoe is enraged by their talk of love and courage. The Senshi vow to combine their power ("Sailor War '94"). Just as the Daimon begins to hatch, Sailor Moon raises her Spiral Heart Moon Rod, and together they use Sailor Planet Attack. The energies cause an explosion, followed by an aftershock.

When the air clears, the Senshi are still standing in what is left of the Death Busters' lair. Sailor Chibi-Moon wakes up. She says she had a dream where her mama told her that she was doing well. She and Sailor Moon hug each other. The Death Busters are puzzled to be alive; Sailor Moon's final attack revived them instead of killing them off. Professor Tomoe says the Senshi will regret saving them because the battle will continue. Sailor Moon replies that the Senshi will be ready for them. When the time comes, the Death Busters will learn that nothing is resolved through battle, only through love.

Sailor Chibi-Moon returns to the 30th century, and the Senshi see a glimpse of her standing together with her parents and waving goodbye. (“L’Amour D’Amour Moonlight”)

Notable Kaiteiban changes:

  • Super Sailor Moon and the rest of the Super Senshi are introduced.
  • Sailor Pluto makes her first appearance and has an image song, “Stay Alone”.
    Sailor Moon Super S - Yume Senshi - Ai - Eien ni... (Dream Soldiers - Love - Eternally...

Act 1

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/memorial3_01.jpg
In a crystal forest within Chibi-Usa's dreams, Pegasus is attacked by a mysterious girl who saps away his energy. Chibi-Usa arrives and promises to protect him. Pegasus thanks his maiden, and they sing about their fated meeting while elsewhere, Usagi and Mamoru sing of their eternal love ("Double Moonlight Romance").

The dream fades to Chibi-Usa and Usagi in a real forest. The girls have organized a picnic for Chibi-Usa, and Usagi is annoyed that she had wandered off and made the others search for her. Chibi-Usa apologizes. Usagi admits that she also got lost in the forest while looking for her. They argue until the others find them, thanks to the candies Usagi unknowingly dropped behind her. They settle down for their picnic and begin having fun together ("Mori de Tanoshiku (Fun In The Forest)"), but when they go to eat, they find that their food has disappeared. Ami, Rei, Makoto, and Minako immediately accuse Usagi, and even Mamoru believes she's responsible. Three strange creatures appear. The girls realize they are the true culprits, and the creatures attack the Senshi. The beasts are called back to order by the crack of a whip. The Amazon Trio arrive and take responsibility for the usagizaru. They introduce themselves and announcing that the Dead Moon Circus is holding auditions that they are all welcome to attend ("Amazon Kara Circus Dan ga Yatte Kita (The Circus Has Come From The Amazon)"). The girls are excited to try out, but Chibi-Usa is less enthusiastic when she overhears the Trio talking about finding a person with a beautiful dream.

The Amazon Trio reconvene and congratulate each other for fooling the girls, but wonder if any of them could really be the owner of a beautiful dream. Hawk's Eye assures them that Zirconia said it had to be one of them. The Trio mourn the fact that none of the group is their type until Fish Eye finds a picture of Mamoru. The others tease him for liking a guy, but Fish Eye swears that this man has a beautiful dream. Hawk's Eye points out that they, however, do not, and the Trio wonders why they seem to be the only ones without dreams. Zirconia overhears the conversation and reminds them that they have to fulfill their mission to find the one hiding Pegasus in their dream ("Dead Moon no Kuroi Yume (The Dead Moon's Black Dream)"). The mysterious girl arrives and Zirconia imbues her with dark energy so that she will be able to follow Pegasus into dreams. Zirconia orders her to hate and destroy everyone who has a beautiful dream.

The mysterious girl tortures Pegasus within Chibi-Usa's dream. Chibi-Usa begs her to stop. Lemures surround her bed until Sailor Pluto arrives in her nightmare and repels them, but the girl knocks the her aside. Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune join in the fight and, with Pluto's help, they force the enemies to flee ("Fukkatsu! Crisis Yurusumaji (Revival! Unforgivable Crisis)"). Tuxedo Mask arrives and is shocked to see that the Outer Senshi have returned. The three of them argue over whether the unknown girl is a threat, and they conclude that she can only be Sailor Saturn. Tuxedo Mask demands that they remain inactive until he says otherwise, but thanks them for protecting his daughter.

At the auditions, the Amazon Trio and their Pierrot show off their various skills before allowing the girls to try out. Makoto, Minako, Ami and Rei (who shows up as Sailor Mars) all pass the audition, but Usagi fails horribly and even accidentally sticks Tiger's Eye with a knife. Everyone gets in except Usagi, but the others beg the Trio to find a way to take her in anyway. Usagi is put in charge of cleaning up while everyone is hurried out of the room to go sign their contracts. Although disappointed at first, Usagi resolves to do her best ("Mop, Hop, Step, Jump").

A couple of circus workers bully the mysterious girl. Hawk's Eye says that it's part of her training to make her obedient, but Usagi cannot idly by. She chases the bullies away. The girl says that Usagi shouldn't bother with her, but Usagi refuses to believe it's okay for her to be treated like that. Usagi asks the other girl what her name is; the girl says that she doesn't remember who she is. Usagi declares that from now on she will be the girl's friend, and asks about the locket she wears. The girl opens it, revealing it to be a music box, and says it was the only thing she had with her when she was found. She is only known as "Miss Dream," a girl who sees beautiful dreams ("Miss Dream"). She and Usagi promise to meet again tomorrow.

Tiger's Eye and Ami meet late at night, and he begins flirting with her while the other girls spy on them. He reveals his true form and attacks her. The other Senshi try to intervene but are grabbed by the Lemures. The rest of the Trio arrive and examine the girls' Dream Mirrors, but do not find Pegasus. They order the Lemures to finish them off, but Zirconia stops them. Miss Dream says the girls have powerful energies and Zirconia forces her to take away their dreams and make them servants of the Dead Moon.

Elsewhere, Usagi and Mamoru share a tender moment while sitting on a pair of swings. Mamoru asks Usagi what she would do if he disappeared. While she is shocked by the question, Usagi replies that everything would disappear for her if that happened. He reassures her that their love is eternal. The Dead Moon prepare to overthrow the White Moon, and the Outer Senshi vow to protect the Earth. Chibi-Usa begs Miss Dream to stop hurting Pegasus, but the she refuses to listen and succeeds in making him disappear ("Triple Dreams").

Act 2

The Dead Moon Circus presents their great "Usagi Rabbit Show," starring Usagi and her friends, who perform many impressive tricks. The show is an amazing success ("Usagi Circus Show Time"). For the final performance, Usagi prepares for a leap into the darkness; after she gathers all of her courage, she jumps, and everything goes dark.

Tiger's Eye welcomes the audience to the Dead Moon Circus. He informs them that while they are enjoying their evening, his Lemures are slowly entering their minds, changing beautiful dreams into nightmares. He orders a Pierrot to destroy the exit so none of them can escape. He reassures everyone that it is nothing to fear, since they're all going to help the Amazon Trio spread the nightmares across the world. Since the four Guardian Senshi are now the Dead Moon's allies, that only leaves Usagi to take care of.

The Usagi Rabbit Show was only a dream. Usagi wakes up, relieved that her scary fantasy is over. Makoto, Minako, and Rei arrive to check up on her, but they are mean to her, leaving Usagi very worried. Fish Eye arrives with Mamoru, and Usagi hides behind a trash can to spy on them. Fish Eye asks if Usagi is Mamoru's girlfriend, and he confirms it, saying that they're even married in the future. Fish Eye asks what is so great about her, and Mamoru says that it's her many dreams, which confuses Fish Eye even more. When Mamoru continues to refuse him, Fish Eye prepares to attack, but the sound of a cat drives him away in a panic. Usagi emerges from her hiding place, and the "cat" is revealed to be none other than Chibi-Usa. Chibi-Usa is sad that Pegasus disappeared. Mamoru asks who Pegasus is. Chibi-Usa doesn't know, but she believes that she shares a special connection with him. She begs her father to protect Pegasus. Mamoru warns Usagi to be careful since it appears that the Dead Moon Circus is their enemy. Chibi-Usa adds that the mysterious girl is their greatest opponent.

Miss Dream arrives, pursued by her bullies, and Usagi chases them away again. Ami enters and begins bullying Miss Dream as well. When Usagi asks what's wrong with her, Ami says that she's fed up being the kind and sweet girl everybody expects her to be. Miss Dream says that she grew up being deceived by the lies about love and justice, and the other girls join in ("Ii Ko wa Yameta (The Good Kid Quit)"). Usagi insists that they're wrong and wonders what happened to them. Chibi-Usa accuses Miss Dream of deceiving them, but Usagi swears that she'll protect everyone because they are all precious to her. She begs her friends to recall their shared dream. With some help from Neo-Queen Serenity’s spirit, she makes them remember that they're all the princesses of their respective planets with a common mission ("Omoidashite Anata wo (Please Remember Yourself)").

The girls remember that Miss Dream was the one responsible for brainwashing them. Even so, Usagi insists that she's not a bad girl and they must believe in her. Uranus voices her disagreement as the Outer Senshi arrive. On the day of a total solar eclipse, the Space-Time Door opened, the invaders of the Dead Moon appeared, and they created a dream black hole inside of Miss Dream. Sensing the dark energy, the three Senshi were revived and now intend to destroy that girl. Fearing for her life, Miss Dream attacks them all. Before the Outer Senshi can retaliate, Chibi-Usa summons Pegasus with the Crystal Carillon. He appears and puts the girl into a deep sleep. He suggests that if he enters her mind and brings back her beautiful dreams, her memory will return as well. Despite the danger, Chibi-Usa and Mamoru accompany Pegasus into the girl's dream world. Usagi begs her friends to trust Pegasus. As soon as he is inside the girl's mind, Zirconia appears,and congratulates the Senshi for delivering Pegasus to the Dead Moon. Now that Pegasus is inside Miss Dream's dark and corrupted dreams, he has no chance of survival. She tries to wake the girl up, but Usagi interferes and Zirconia knocks her aside.

The Inner Senshi transform while the Outer Senshi fight the Amazon Trio. Zirconia realizes that they are the Sailor Senshi of the White Moon and sends a flock of Lemures to attack them. The monsters manage to overpower them until the Inner Senshi appear. Sailor Moon swears to protect Miss Dream because she has many beautiful dreams, like all humans do. Fish Eye is once again confused and angered by all this talk of dreams, and Tiger's Eye sends more Lemures against the Senshi, but they unite their powers to repel the enemies.

Pluto arrives and says that the girl is nowhere to be found. The Dead Moon Circus prepare to enter the girl’s dreams. Sailor Moon tries to stop them, but is not fast enough, and they find themselves alone in the circus with wild animals approaching. There is no way for them to enter the dream world without Pegasus. Mercury suggests that they concentrate on the girl's dream and make their hearts into one. The eight Sailor Senshi unite their powers and teleport into Miss Dream's mind.

Chibi-Usa and Mamoru are separated inside the dream. Scared and alone, Chibi-Usa falls to the ground sobbing. The Amazon Trio and Zirconia arrive. The Trio is bewildered to see a dream so filled with blackness, while Zirconia rejoices at this vision of chaos which reminds her of their dark world. She orders the Trio to find Pegasus. Chibi-Usa tries to sneak away, but they catch her and release a band of usagizaru to attack her. Tuxedo Mask arrives in time to save her, and battles the enemy until the Sailor Senshi appear ("Tuxedo Loyal").

A mysterious mirror appears behind him. The shadow of a woman within the mirror speaks through Zirconia and announces herself as Queen Nehellenia, the Queen of the Black Moon. She relishes the chance to finally speak with the Queen of the White Moon and her guardians. She declares that they cannot understand the pain of always being in the shadow, and she intends to rule the Earth in darkness. Nehellenia unleashes her ultimate weapon, Miss Dream, who attacks despite Sailor Moon's best efforts to get through to her.

Tuxedo Mask tries to reason with Nehellenia, but she is set on being the true ruler of the moon. Tuxedo Mask realizes that all the dark power Miss Dream is using against them is in fact Nehellenia's sadness. He urges the others to stay away and protect their dreams while he protects his - that is, Usagi. He receives blow after blow from Miss Dream until he is able to wrap her in his arms, which releases her from Nehellenia's control. However, he is badly injured and collapses soon after. Sailor Moon rushes to his side, upset that he would jeopardize his safety for her. He reassures her that their love is forever no matter what happens, but she says that it doesn't matter if they can't be together. As he dies in her arms, he thanks everyone for all they've done and promises to always be near Usagi somehow. His last wish is to be reborn as a regular Mamoru with Usagi and share a normal happiness with everyone.

Usagi tries desperately to wake Mamoru and cries in anguish that her dream is dead. Zirconia is satisfied with this outcome. Fish Eye asks his mistress why he and the rest of the Trio do not shed tears, and why they don't have dreams of their own. Zirconia replies that they are nothing more than animals granted human forms and prepares to destroy them. Sailor Moon intervenes and defends them; if they were touched by Mamoru's kindness and understand her sadness, then they are human. Sailor Moon insists that her mission is to protect all humans and all life. Zirconia orders the Trio to attack, claiming that she can make their human forms permanent with Pegasus's power. Sailor Moon demands that her Senshi let the Trio do as they want, because the dream that Mamoru gave them is to protect all life. Although the Trio seems to be willing to attack at first, they turn around to shield Sailor Moon and her friends.

Zirconia unleashes the ultimate Lemures, who makes Mamoru disappear. The Trio try to fight him off and protect the Sailor Senshi, but they are quickly overpowered and trapped. Before they are destroyed, the Trio thank Sailor Moon and wish to be reborn with many dreams and be friends with the Sailor Senshi. Zirconia orders her Lemures to attack, and Sailor Moon tells the Senshi that no matter what, they must protect Miss Dream. The girl wakes up and fells everyone with her powers. The image of Sailor Saturn flickers briefly, but she manages to completely break the Dead Moon's hold over her and declares that she is only herself and no one else. Sailor Moon agrees happily, saying she's just a normal girl who sees dreams, and hugs her.

More furious than ever, Zirconia summons Pegasus and threatens to bury the Sailor Senshi in darkness. Chibi-Usa begs Pegasus not to come, but he does so anyway. Zirconia offers the Senshi's lives in exchange for the Golden Crystal, but Pegasus says that not even Zirconia's evil can defeat their purity. He offers the Sailor Senshi new powers, allowing Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon to transform into their "Super" forms. Zirconia is frustrated that they are still defying her and releases all of her Lemures. With their new powers, the Sailor Senshi enter battle the Dead Moon until Sailor Moon is finally able to drive Zirconia and her Lemures away ("La Moon").

The battle is won, but Usagi is still grieving because Mamoru is gone and she couldn’t save the Amazon Trio. Pegasus arrives and says that she is wrong because the souls of the Trio are now with him in the forest of Elysion, where they can see beautiful dreams. Sailor Moon thanks Pegasus. She feels a warm breeze against her skin and hears the voice of her beloved telling her that he was also saved. His spirit appears and tells her that he has become King Endymion, and is now by Neo-Queen Serenity's side. He assures Usagi that their love is forever, and that the past and present will soon meet. Neo-Queen Serenity’s spirits appears before them and gives the Sailor Senshi a hopeful message of love. The mysterious girl wakes up from her bad dream and joins the other girls, who warmly welcome her as Pegasus flies by ("Over the Moon").

    Sailor Moon Super S Kaiteiban - Saturn Fukkatsu Hen (Saturn Revival Chapter

Act 1

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/anza_yume_senshi_ai_eien_ni_kaiteiban.jpg
A band of Lemures attack Pegasus as someone saps away his energy. The Inner Senshi arrive and drive the monsters away. Chibi-Usa appears and promises to protect him, and Pegasus thanks his maiden. They sing about their fated meeting and the Senshi join in, while elsewhere, Neo-Queen Serenity and King Endymion sing of their eternal love ("Double Moonlight Romance").

The dream fades to Chibi-Usa in a real forest, wondering what she was just doing and where she is. She remembers going to a picnic and getting lost in the forest. Mamoru and Usagi find her and are soon joined by Ami, Rei, Makoto, Minako, and a group of forest creatures, including some usagizaru. They settle down in a clearing and begin having fun together ("Mori de Tanoshiku (Fun In The Forest)"). Usagi tries to delay the picnic so the girls won't find out that she ate all of their lunches while she was looking for Chibi-Usa. When she opens the bag, she is surprised to discover that the lunches are still there. A whip crack echoes across the forest and the Amazon Trio appears. They introduce themselves and declare that those lunches are a gift from them. They announce that the Dead Moon Circus is holding auditions that they are all welcome to attend ("Amazon Kara Circus Dan ga Yatte Kita (The Circus Has Come From The Amazon)"). Fish Eye is particularly interested in Mamoru trying out. The girls are all excited to audition, but Chibi-Usa overhears the Trio talking about finding a person with a beautiful dream and is less enthusiastic.

The Amazon Trio reconvene to discuss the girls they just encountered. Hawk's Eye brags about his good looks. He and Tiger's Eye then begin arguing until Fish Eye reminds them that they have yet to find out if those girls really hold beautiful dreams. Hawk's Eye says he's uninterested in them, Tiger's Eye remarks that Ami is cute, and Fish Eye has a big crush on Mamoru. Their conversation drifts off topic and they begin to wonder why they are the only ones without dreams. Zirconia overhears the conversation and reminds them that they have to fulfill their mission to find the one hiding Pegasus in their dream ("Dead Moon no Kuroi Yume (The Dead Moon's Black Dream)"). The mysterious girl arrives and Zirconia imbues her with dark energy so that she will be able to follow Pegasus into dreams. Zirconia orders her to hate and destroy everyone who has a beautiful dream.

The mysterious girl tortures Pegasus within Chibi-Usa's dream. Chibi-Usa begs her to stop. Lemures surround her bed until Sailor Pluto arrives in her nightmare and repels them, but the girl knocks the her aside. Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune join in the fight and, with Pluto's help, they force the enemies to flee ("Fukkatsu! Crisis Yurusumaji (Revival! Unforgivable Crisis)"). Tuxedo Mask arrives and is shocked to see that the Outer Senshi have returned. They inform him that baby Hotaru has disappeared, and not only does the mysterious girl have the same energy as she does, she also has the pendant that Sailor Pluto gave to Hotaru. They conclude that the enemy must have abducted Hotaru, erased her memory, and made her grow. This girl is Sailor Saturn, a threat to them all. Tuxedo Mask demands that they remain inactive until he says otherwise, but thanks them for protecting his daughter.

At the auditions, the Amazon Trio and their Pierrot show off their various skills before allowing the girls to try out. Makoto, Minako, Ami and Rei (who shows up as Sailor Mars) all pass the audition, but Usagi fails horribly and even accidentally sticks Tiger's Eye with a knife. Everyone gets in except Usagi, but the others beg the Trio to find a way to take her in anyway. Usagi is put in charge of cleaning up while everyone is hurried out of the room to go sign their contracts. Although disappointed at first, Usagi resolves to do her best ("Mop, Hop, Step, Jump").

A couple of circus workers bully the mysterious girl. Hawk's Eye says that it's part of her training to make her obedient, but Usagi cannot idly by. She chases the bullies away. The girl says that Usagi shouldn't bother with her, but Usagi refuses to believe it's okay for her to be treated like that. Usagi asks the other girl what her name is; the girl says that she doesn't remember who she is. Usagi declares that from now on she will be the girl's friend, and asks about the locket she wears. The girl opens it, revealing it to be a music box, and says it was the only thing she had with her when she was found. She is only known as "Miss Dream," a girl who sees beautiful dreams ("Miss Dream"). She and Usagi promise to meet again tomorrow. After Miss Dream leaves, Usagi realizes that she doesn't know how to get down from the swing.

Fish Eye flirts with Mamoru while Usagi spies on them. Fish Eye is disappointed that Mamoru didn't show up at the audition, but is glad that Mamoru came to see him. Mamoru corrects him, saying he came to see Usagi because he was worried about her. Fish Eye asks if Usagi is Mamoru's girlfriend, and he confirms it, saying that they're even married in the future. Fish Eye proposes that he break up with Usagi in order to be with him, in exchange for Fish Eye guaranteeing his safety. Usagi reveals herself and tells Fish Eye off. When Fish Eye asks what's so great about her, Mamoru replies that she has many dreams, which confuses Fish Eye even more. He leaves and Usagi asks Mamoru to help her down from the swing, but he says that he'll come join her instead.

Tiger's Eye and Ami meet late at night, and he begins flirting with her while the other girls spy on them. He reveals his true form and attacks her. The other Senshi try to intervene but are grabbed by the Lemures. The rest of the Trio arrive and examine the girls' Dream Mirrors, but do not find Pegasus. They order the Lemures to finish them off, but Zirconia stops them. Miss Dream says the girls have powerful energies and Zirconia forces her to use her powers on Ami, whose personality changes drastically. When the others ask her what is wrong with her, she replies that she's fed up being the kind and sweet girl everybody expects her to be ("Ii Ko wa Yameta (The Good Kid Quit)"). Miss Dream then removes the other girls' dreams and makes them servants of the Dead Moon. Zirconia orders them to find Pegasus and get the Golden Crystal.

Elsewhere, Usagi and Mamoru share a tender moment while sitting on a pair of swings. Mamoru asks Usagi what she would do if he disappeared. While she is shocked by the question, Usagi replies that everything would disappear for her if that happened. He reassures her that their love is eternal. The Dead Moon prepare to overthrow the White Moon, and the Outer Senshi vow to protect the Earth. Chibi-Usa begs Miss Dream to stop hurting Pegasus, but the she refuses to listen and succeeds in making him disappear ("Triple Dreams").

Act 2

The Dead Moon Circus presents their great "Usagi Rabbit Show," starring Usagi and her friends, who perform many impressive tricks. The show is an amazing success ("Usagi Circus Show Time"). For the final performance, Usagi prepares for a leap into the darkness; after she gathers all of her courage, she jumps, and everything goes dark.

Tiger's Eye welcomes the audience to the Dead Moon Circus. He informs them that while they are enjoying their evening, his Lemures are slowly entering their minds, changing beautiful dreams into nightmares. He orders a Pierrot to destroy the exit so none of them can escape. He reassures everyone that it is nothing to fear, since they're all going to help the Amazon Trio spread the nightmares across the world. Since the four Guardian Senshi are now the Dead Moon's allies, that only leaves Usagi to take care of.

The Usagi Rabbit Show was only a dream. Usagi wakes up, relieved that her scary fantasy is over. Ami, Makoto, Minako, and Rei arrive to check up on her, but they are mean to her. Usagi asks what's wrong with them, and they reply that they are done being friends of justice, saying they want to be carefree, and that no one appreciates them anyway. Usagi says that she doesn't care if they don't want to protect her anymore, but she does care about their friendship. She begs her friends to recall their shared dream. With some help from Neo-Queen Serenity’s spirit, she makes them remember that they're all the princesses of their respective planets with a common mission ("Omoidashite Anata wo (Please Remember Yourself)").

Miss Dream arrives, saying the moonlight allowed her to hear the song. The girls remember that the mysterious girl was responsible for brainwashing them. Usagi insists that she's not a bad girl and that they must believe in her. Mamoru says that her memory was erased by the Dead Moon in their plot to take over the Earth. Usagi realizes that the circus is a cover for their enemy. The Outer Senshi arrive and reveal that the Dead Moon created a dream black hole in this girl; Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune intend to destroy her because Sailor Saturn is too much of a danger. Sailor Pluto tries in vain to make her remember that she is really Hotaru.

Afraid and confused, Miss Dream releases her power and knocks them all down. Sailor Saturn’s form appears for a moment. The girls try to approach her but, unable to handle Sailor Saturn's power, she attacks them. Before the Outer Senshi can retaliate, Chibi-Usa summons Pegasus with the Crystal Carillon. He appears and puts Hotaru into a deep sleep. He suggests that if he enters her mind and brings back her beautiful dreams, her memory will return as well. Despite the danger, Chibi-Usa and Mamoru accompany Pegasus into the girl's dream world. Usagi begs her friends to trust Pegasus. As soon as he is inside the girl's mind, Zirconia appears,and congratulates the Senshi for delivering Pegasus to the Dead Moon. Now that Pegasus is inside Miss Dream's dark and corrupted dreams, he has no chance of survival. She tries to wake the girl up, but Usagi interferes and Zirconia knocks her aside.

The Outer Senshi and the Amazon Trio begin to fight. As Zirconia sends a flock of Lemures to attack them, the Inner Senshi transform and drive them away ("Solar Miracle, Make Up!"). The Dead Moon Circus prepare to enter the girl’s dreams. Sailor Moon tries to stop them, but is not fast enough, and the Senshi find themselves alone in the circus with wild animals approaching. There is no way for them to enter the dream world without Pegasus. Mercury suggests that they concentrate on the girl's dream and make their hearts into one. The eight Sailor Senshi unite their powers and teleport into Miss Dream's mind.

Chibi-Usa and Mamoru are separated inside the dream. Scared and alone, Chibi-Usa falls to the ground sobbing. The Amazon Trio and Zirconia arrive, and the Trio is bewildered to see a dream so filled with blackness. Zirconia rejoices at this vision of chaos, but wonders what would happen if the people of the White Moon succeeded in entering Hotaru's dream. Chibi-Usa tries to sneak away but is caught, but thankfully, the Sailor Senshi arrive in time to save her. However, Sailor Moon is not with them.

Zirconia reveals that she has captured Pegasus. She demands the Golden Crystal or else she will kill the Senshi, but Pegasus says that not even Zirconia's evil can defeat their purity. Tuxedo Mask arrives and begins battling Tiger's Eye ("Tuxedo Loyal"). He frees Pegasus, who gives his powers to Chibi Moon and the very tardy Sailor Moon, allowing them to upgrade to their Super forms.

Zirconia feels pains in her chest and collapses as a mysterious mirror appears behind her. Through Zirconia, the The shadow of a woman within the mirror speaks through Zirconia and announces herself as Queen Nehellenia, the Queen of the Black Moon. She relishes he chance to finally speak with the grown-up Princess of the White Moon and her guardians. She wants to take revenge on Sailor Moon for the pain her mother, Queen Serenity, caused Nehellenia in the past, and intends to rule the Earth in darkness. Nehellenia unleashes Hotaru, who attacks despite Sailor Moon's best efforts to get through to her.

Tuxedo Mask tries to reason with Nehellenia, but she is set on being the true ruler of the moon. Tuxedo Mask realizes that all the dark power Hotaru is using against them is in fact Nehellenia's sadness. He urges the others to stay away and protect their dreams while he protects his - that is, Usagi. He receives blow after blow from Hotaru until he is able to wrap her in his arms, which releases her from Nehellenia's control. However, he is badly injured and collapses soon after. Sailor Moon rushes to his side, upset that he would jeopardize his safety for her. He reassures her that their love is forever no matter what happens, but she says that it doesn't matter if they can't be together. As he dies in her arms, he thanks everyone for all they've done and promises to always be near Usagi somehow. His last wish is to be reborn as a regular Mamoru with Usagi and share a normal happiness with everyone.

Usagi tries desperately to wake Mamoru and cries in anguish that her dream is dead. Zirconia returns, satisfied with this outcome. Fish Eye asks his mistress why he and the rest of the Trio do not shed tears, and why they don't have dreams of their own. Zirconia replies that they are nothing more than animals granted human forms and prepares to destroy them. Sailor Moon intervenes and defends them; if they were touched by Mamoru's kindness and understand her sadness, then they are human. Sailor Moon insists that her mission is to protect all humans and all life. Zirconia orders the Trio to attack, claiming that she can make their human forms permanent with Pegasus's power. Sailor Moon demands that her Senshi let the Trio do as they want, because the dream that Mamoru gave them is to protect all life. Although the Trio seems to be willing to attack at first, they turn around to shield Sailor Moon and her friends.

Zirconia unleashes the ultimate Lemures and the Trio tries to fight him off and protect the Sailor Senshi, but they are quickly overpowered, trapped, and killed. The Lemures fell all the Senshi except for Sailor Moon. Zirconia calls forth Queen Nehellenia to deliver her judgment upon the princess. Sailor Saturn appears and declares that Zirconia will be the only one to face judgment. She uses her powers to revive Mamoru, release the souls of the Amazon Trio, and awaken the fallen Sailor Senshi ("To a Brand-New World"). She thanks Sailor Moon and orders Zirconia to get out of her dream.

Queen Nehellenia frees herself from her mirror and casts a curse. Everyone tries to fight it off, and Nehellenia gloats that they don't have enough strength left to see dreams. Sailor Moon tries to go up against her on her own, but Nehellenia attacks her and she falls unconscious. The others beg her to wake up. Sailor Mars tells the other Senshi to give all of their powers to Sailor Moon. After it fails, Mars begs the audience to call out Sailor Moon's name. Sailor Moon slowly wakes up and the Golden Crystal shines in Mamoru's chest. The legendary Holy Grail appears, and together with everyone's powers, it allows Usagi to become Eternal Sailor Moon. She thanks everyone, then warns Queen Nehellenia that she will soon be punished and see the true power of everyone's beautiful dreams. The queen releases all of her Lemures. The Sailor Senshi destroy Zirconia and all of the Lemures. Nehellenia fades into an old, wrinkled woman and declares that the Senshi haven't won yet and that this planet will definitely be hers. Eternal Sailor Moon destroys her once and for all ("La Moon").

The battle is won, and Sailor Moon has reached her eternal form. Pegasus joins them and Mamoru remarks that his chest still feels warm, as though a star is being born inside his heart. Sailor Moon says that everyone has a star inside of them. She recalls Queen Serenity telling her about it in her past life. She encourages everyone to always let their star shine. The spirit of Neo-Queen Serenity appears and gives a hopeful message of love to the Sailor Senshi, who all join in ("Over the Moon").

Act 1

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stars_vhs.jpg
Michiru and Haruka perform a violin and piano duet ("Overture ~Haruka to Michiru no Ensoukai~ (Haruka and Michiru's Concert)"). The Three Lights then take the stage and perform their own song ("Chasin' After You"). The MC arrives and thanks the performers for participating in the Azabu Juuban Municipal High School Music Festival. Michiru, Haruka, and the Three Lights congratulate each other. When Haruka shakes Seiya's hand, she feels the aura of the stars emanating from him. As the two groups go their separate ways, Haruka ponders who those three might really be. The MC introduces the next performers: The Chou Very Bad Mates ("It's Chou Very Bad (It's Super Very Bad)"). During the performance, Shadow Bee uses a pair of scissors to cut the electricity. The project manager, Usagi, discovers a fire and Seiya extinguishes it for her. Makoto, Minako, Rei, and Ami also discover that one of the wires has been cut. Rei blames Usagi for not being careful enough and the girls start arguing. The Chou Very Bad Mates complain about the situation, but Usagi tells them to go wait either backstage or at the nearby aquarium.

The other girls are disappointed to have lost their chance to sing, but Ami reminds them that today is only a rehearsal. They all start raving about the Three Lights, making Rei jealous that the others get to go to school with celebrities. Usagi comes back and declares that she will be singing with Seiya at the main event tomorrow because Seiya requested it. The others call her selfish and refuse to let her, especially Ami, the biggest Three Lights fan of their group. Upset, Usagi goes home. The girls start to feel bad about their behavior, remembering that Usagi must feel lonely since Mamoru went abroad and Chibi-Usa returned to the 30th Century. They resolve to perform with just the four of them, and ask the MC to pick which of them has the best voice. He chooses Ami and Rei.

Elsewhere, the MC speaks ominously about the fate of shooting stars and is giddy that the rehearsal was canceled.

On the rooftop of Juuban High School, the Three Lights talk about the person they are searching for and wonder if she will ever hear their song. They resolve to keep their true identities concealed until they find her. They hear someone coming and hide. Usagi arrives and sadly reads a postcard from Mamoru aloud. Meanwhile in America, Mamoru is also feeling sad and misses Usagi terribly ("Lonely Distance"). Setsuna arrives and comforts Usagi, reminding her that she shouldn't be ashamed to cry if she feels sad. The Three Lights emerge from hiding and Usagi excitedly asks for an autograph. Seiya says that he wants to sing with Usagi because she reminds him so much of the one they are looking for. Setsuna feels the aura of stars from the Three Lights and demands to know who they really are. The idols instead start to leave, even though Usagi asks them to stay, and suddenly Setsuna feels the Space-Time Door opening. A moment later, Chibi-Usa lands on the roof in her pajamas, looking exhausted and worn. Usagi and Setsuna catch her, but Chibi-Usa collapses before she can tell them what happened.

Elsewhere, the Sailor Animamates, MC Fly, Sailor Buttress, Shadow Bug, Shadow Bee, and Shadow Mantis discuss their plan to use the festival to find the bearers of true Star Seeds. Their main targets are the Three Lights, Michiru, and Haruka. They intend to create an accident to force the Sailor Senshi to transform in order to discover their true identities and take their Sailor Crystals ("Star Hunter").

At the school infirmary, Setsuna informs the girls that Chibi-Usa is going to be all right. They wonder what could have caused her injuries. Setsuna tells them that she found a shawl belonging to Neo-Queen Serenity around Small Lady. They wonder if new enemies might have appeared in the 30th Century. Although Usagi acts annoyed, Setsuna is convinced that she's actually glad to see her future daughter again. Chibi-Usa begins whispering "Mama" in her sleep and in a flashback, Neo-Queen Serenity is attacked by Sailor Galaxia. Usagi believes that Chibi-Usa got angry at her mother and ran away, much to the others' dismay.

Haruka and Michiru arrive and inform the others that they were just attacked. MC Fly enters and declares that members of the bands are being attacked one by one and that someone must be doing it to prevent the concert from happening. He leaves, and Michiru, Haruka, and Setsuna declare their suspicion that the Three Lights are behind this. Another MC Fly appears in the back of the room and agrees that those three are very suspicious. Usagi is convinced that they are not bad people. The Inner Senshi form a detective squad to investigate ("Sailor Busters"). As the girls, later joined by Hotaru, search for clues, the Animamates drop clues pointing to the Three Lights. MC Fly reappears and the girls report their findings: many places and objects around the concert hall have either been tampered with or sabotaged. Ami reports that her supercomputer detected the presence of many suspicious individuals, and Rei concurs that she also felt many wicked auras. They also found the items belonging to the Three Lights that were planted for them to find. The MC tries to convince them that those items prove the idols' involvement, but Ami finds animal hair belonging to the Animamates (fox, mouse, cat, and frog). This discovery prompts MC Fly to flee and the girls rejoice that the Three Lights are not the real culprits - at least, until Usagi reveals that she did feel the same aura of the stars that the idols possess.

They hear Chibi-Usa scream, and MC Fly enters and tells them to hurry to the roof. Although Usagi is confused about this other MC, she quickly follows the other girls. On the roof, Chibi-Usa is fighting the shadows until Sailor Pluto, Sailor Uranus, and Sailor Neptune arrive and drive them off ("Fukitsu na Kaze ~ Fukkatsu wa Higeki no Zenchou (An Ominous Wind ~ Revival Is A Sign of Tragedy)"). The Sailor Animamates appear and overpower the Outer Senshi until Sailor Saturn and the Inner Senshi join them. Sailor Buttress arrives and summons MC Fly, who appears in his real form and fells all the Sailor Senshi at once. Super Sailor Moon shows up and introduces herself. MC Fly introduces himself in return and presents the Sailor Senshi from Shadow Galactica.

The girls are shocked to learn that their new enemies are Sailor Senshi with their own Sailor Crystals who work for Sailor Galaxia. MC Fly and Sailor Moon begin fighting, then both sides use group attacks against one another. The Shadow Galactica members seem to be more powerful, but the Sailor Starlights appear and Sailor Star Fighter uses her powers to repeal the entire evil army. The Senshi of this Solar System and the Sailor Starlights introduce themselves and their missions. Although defensive at first, they all agree to work together for the common cause of protecting those they love ("Sailor War Supreme"). Chibi-Usa reappears and tries to warn to others about a danger in the 30th Century, but before she can finish, Sailor Galaxia arrives and attacks the girl, and she collapses.

Act 2

In Shadow Galactica, the assembled Animamates declare that they have conquered 80% of the Milky Way and all that remains are the Solar System's planets. Galaxia is displeased that they are still making her wait. Galaxia asks her prisoner, Neo-Queen Serenity, if she has changed her mind, but the queen replies that she will never submit to Galaxia because people cannot be controlled by force. Galaxia replies that force is the only thing that unites the galaxy and that she'll make them all bow down to her ("Galaxia no Dokusai (Galaxia's Dictatorship)"). Sailor Buttress informs Galaxia that an incredibly strong power protects the queen, and Galaxia resolves to alter history so that the present-day Moon Princess will never become this world's future ruler.

Hotaru and Chibi-Usa arrive at the Music Festival live performance. Chibi-Usa is worried because since she collapsed she feels like she has forgotten about something very important. Hotaru reassures her that she'll remember sooner or later, and they enjoy Makoto, Minako, Ami, and Rei's performance ("Light ni Aventure (Adventure to Light)"). After their song, the girls introduce the Three Lights, while MC Fly gives a bouquet of flowers to a disguised Sailor Buttress and the singers begin their performance ("See Me, Boku-tachi no Jidai (See Me, Our Era)"). They then introduce Usagi who, although nervous, performs with all her heart ("Knockin' Down Hesitation"). Buttress gives the bouquet to Seiya, who intends to give it to Usagi as a "thank you" from the group. The other MC Fly warns her not to take it, however, and the Outer Senshi arrive and throw the bouquet away before it explodes.

The former MC Fly comes back and traps the Sailor Senshi in subspace. The Animamates and Shadows arrive and Usagi recognizes them. Galaxia appears and demands to know who the group is protecting. Pluto replies that Usagi is their princess. MC Fly informs the Senshi that they will take their Sailor Crystals so that Galaxia may become ruler of the galaxy. Chibi-Usa retorts that as the future queen, Sailor Moon is the true ruler. In return, MC Fly presents their captive, Neo-Queen Serenity, and Galaxia declares that their future is already no more. Chibi-Usa remembers that Galaxia is the one who attacked her mother. Makoto and Minako attempt to transform, but Galaxia sends them and Usagi elsewhere. Galaxia prepares to destroy the remaining Sailor Senshi, but the Three Lights interrupt her. Instead, she uses her powers to bend space and time, scattering everyone to different locations. Pluto holds on to Chibi-Usa and Hotaru and stops time, despite the other girls warning that it will kill her. It seems to work for a moment, but then Pluto's and Galaxia's powers clash together, and Pluto is knocked away while Hotaru and Chibi-Usa land together somewhere in the Edo period.

Both girls wake up and as they wonder where they are, they hear the sound of people approaching. A group of people dressed in kimono appear and begin a traditional Japanese dance, and a young nobleman arrives, blindfolded and playfully trying to catch the dancing girls. Chibi-Usa and Hotaru notice that three of the girls look exactly like Rei, Minako, and Makoto, while the nobleman looks just like Mamoru. The girls are confused by Chibi-Usa and Hotaru's clothing and wonder who they are. Hotaru and Chibi-Usa realize that they have just arrived in the middle of Azabu Castle's art festival, somewhere in the Edo Period. A young girl who looks just like Ami arrives, pursued by a swordsman. Chibi-Usa and Hotaru try unsuccessfully to defend the girl, and are saved by "Usanosuke Isshin," a self-declared pretty boy fishmonger of love and justice. Chibi-Usa exclaims that he must be Usagi's previous incarnation, and a fight ensues between him and the villain. Usanosuke is initially successful, but when he strikes a pose with his pole he gets stuck. The nobleman returns and engages the villain in combat, finally driving him off. The girl who looks like Ami thanks the ones who helped her, and Chibi-Usa gives her medicine to heal her sick father. Usanosuke declares his admiration for the young lord, and the two realize they share a fateful connection with each other. Usanosuke gives Chibi-Usa and Hotaru his carrying pole, believing it will somehow end up being helpful to them. The nobleman invites the fishmonger to have tea with him and he gladly accepts. Time and space warp again. Thanks to the carrying pole and the assistance of the other MC Fly, Chibi-Usa and Hotaru are able to stick together.

In the present time, the Three Lights, Uranus, and Neptune have regrouped, while elsewhere in the labyrinth of time and space, Sailor Venus and Sailor Jupiter are attacked and killed by Sailor Galaxia. Neptune feels them die, but tries to reassure herself. The Three Lights are cynical; Taiki says that he clearly felt Galaxia's power and Yaten adds that their Sailor Crystals must have been taken away by now. Sailor Mars and Sailor Mercury angrily refuse to believe that their comrades are dead. Mars convinces Uranus and Neptune to go look for them, and Mercury observes that if this place is a maze, then there must be an exit somewhere. As the Sailor Senshi are leaving, Seiya asks if they will go even if it means losing their lives, to which they reply that their lives mean nothing to them if they can't protect their princess. Taiki remarks that their comrades died with the same dedication, and they finally reveal their true identity as the Sailor Starlights. Time and space abruptly distort again, and the Sailor Senshi are scattered once more.

Elsewhere in the maze, Usagi tries to find her friends. She attempts to transform, but it doesn't work. Galaxia appears and mocks her, saying she is starting to like ruling this Solar System in her place. Usagi retorts that she and her friends are not rulers, but protectors. Galaxia remarks that all her "weapons" are meant to fight, but Usagi replies that her companions are not her weapons, but her precious friends. Usagi wonders if Galaxia herself has any friends. She says that she doesn't understand why fellow Sailor Senshi should have to fight each other. Galaxia declares that a Senshi exists only to fight, and that she will show Usagi her friends' last stand. Galaxia uses her powers to let her watch Mars and Neptune. Neptune tells Mars to use her sixth sense to find the exit. While Mars tries to concentrate, Sailor Tin Nyanko appears and tries to attack her, but Neptune steps in the way. As soon as Mars finds the exit, Neptune is knocked down by the Animamate's power. Mars tries to fight off Tin Nyanko but is knocked down as well. Nyanko leaves, allowing Galaxia to have the final blow, but Neptune once again takes the attack and protects Mars. As Neptune dies in Sailor Mars's arms, she calls out Sailor Uranus' name.

Elsewhere, Mercury attempts to analyze the place she and Uranus are in with the aid of her visor and computer. Uranus suddenly calls out Neptune's name, feeling that her lover has died. Mercury does not believe it, but Uranus angrily replies that she of all people would know. Projections of the Sailor Animamates appear in mirrors around the two Senshi and begin taunting them. Despite Mercury's warning that those are simply illusions, Uranus attacks them, and her attack is sent right back to her. Mercury discovers where the reflections are coming from and sends her attack that direction, knocking down Sailor Pewter Fox, who mockingly congratulates her for seeing through her illusions and flies away, allowing Galaxia the final move. Uranus pushes Mercury down and takes the entire blast from Galaxia. Uranus dies in Mercury's arms, congratulating her and encouraging her to protect the princess.

Usagi is deeply shaken and begs her friends not to look for her anymore. Mercury and Mars realize they can hear her and each other but can't find one another. Usagi tells them to give up on her and save themselves. The girls firmly disagree because as long as Usagi lives, their dream will live on with her. Despite Usagi's wishes, they stand by their decision and reaffirm their everlasting love and devotion to Usagi. Galaxia appears and kills the remaining Senshi. Elsewhere, as Sailor Pluto dies, her voice reaches her princess and tells her that even if the world disappears, her love will survive ("Sorezore no Elegy (Each One's Elegy)"). Faced with the deaths of all of her companions, Usagi cries out in grief and releases a burst of power.

In Shadow Galactica, Galaxia's minions rejoice at their capture of the Sailor Crystal Seeds and declare that all that remains is to get the Silver Crystal and Golden Crystal. Sailor Buttress quiets them so that Galaxia can think. Galaxia wonders if her underlings could ever muster the kind of power her adversary just displayed. MC Fly feels someone approaching, and Galaxia realizes that the energy of grief and anger allowed Sailor Moon to transform. Sailor Moon appears before them and orders them to return her friends' Sailor Crystals. The Animamates try to attack her, but Sailor Moon blasts them away. She says that she came here to fight, just like Galaxia wanted. Galaxia congratulates her on making this far, but wonders if Sailor Moon really believes she has what it takes to defeat her. Sailor Moon answers that she has nothing to protect anymore because Galaxia stole it from her. Galaxia mocks her, saying that her friends' pathetic way of fighting led them to die in vain. This prompts Sailor Moon to blast Galaxia with her power, declaring that she's the first person Sailor Moon has ever hated. Galaxia rises and informs Sailor Moon that if both of their powers collide, the whole universe might be destroyed, but Sailor Moon replies that even if that should happen, at least she will have defeated Galaxia. The two prepare to engage in battle but a rose flies in and interrupts them. The other MC Fly appears and takes off his disguise, revealing himself as Tuxedo Mask. He takes Sailor Moon in his arms and calms her. He declares that hatred only calls out for more hatred and prepares to engage the villains ("A Knight for Sailor Soldiers"). MC Fly declares that he's been waiting to settle things with Tuxedo Mask; he takes off his own costume, revealing an outfit similar to Tuxedo Mask's, only in white. The two begin fighting until MC Fly knocks Tuxedo Mask's cane away. Just in time, a carrying pole lands in Tuxedo Mask's hands and he uses it to knock MC Fly away before Sailor Chibi Moon and Sailor Saturn make their entrance.

Chibi Moon wakes Usagi, telling her that she must go on to protect their future and her mother. The Starlights arrive and tell them not to worry about that, because they came from the future and Neo-Queen Serenity is fine. They are prepared to settle their grudge with Galaxia. Galaxia and her minions recognize the survivors of their attacks and are ready to take them on. Tuxedo Mask tries to reason with Galaxia, telling her that all this violence will only create more endless fighting. Galaxia retorts that all she has to do then is destroy all those who oppose her. Sailor Moon declares that she will fight to protect the future, but that she will not kill Galaxia. The battle begins and Sailor Moon transforms into Eternal Sailor Moon. Using the Eternal Tiare, she unites the powers of all the Sailor Crystal Seeds of the Solar System with Sailor Saturn's power and revives the fallen Sailor Senshi. The girls rejoice at being reunited. Galaxia's minions turn to their leader for answers, but Galaxia herself seems to have doubts. Sailor Moon explains that everyone has someone for whom they would gladly throw away their future, and wonders if Galaxia feels entitled to that.

After both groups conclude they cannot understand each other, Sailor Moon tells her friends that even though she is afraid, she is ready to fight, and Galaxia orders her troops to attack. A battle ensues, and the Sailor Senshi and Tuxedo Mask use their powers to destroy Galaxia's minions. Sailor Galaxia repeats that only one of them can survive this battle, and Eternal Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon unite their powers into one final blast ("La Moon"). Although visibly affected by the attack, Sailor Galaxia still stands proudly; she declares that fighting will always call for more fighting before she flies away laughing. The Sailor Senshi observe the night sky as a multitude of shooting stars fly by. Sailor Moon remarks that those shooting stars are each someone's dreams, and as her friends call her name, she says that she wants to keep being only called simply "Usagi" as it reflects what she really wants to be: a normal girl. She believes that those moments when she is just that simple girl are the ones in which she shines the most. The Sailor Senshi all sit together and reflect upon the battle they just faced ("Densetsu Seitan (Legendary Birth)").

    Eien Densetsu (Eternal Legend

Act 1

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eien_densetsu_dvd_cover.jpg
The Sailor Animamates dance in the shadows before exiting, followed by a confrontation between Tuxedo Mask and Sailor Galaxia. Tuxedo Mask is quickly knocked aside, leaving Galaxia alone to begin a ritual to revive an unnamed evil being as two men in uniforms stand behind her.

A prince and a princess fight three dark figures, the Black Knights, amidst a larger battle. The prince drives the knights away, but is wounded. He urges the princess to leave him, but the princess tells him that she can endure losing everything as long as they are together. Their romantic moment is cut short as the knights come back and prepare to kill them. However, a team of four female knights, the Holy Warriors of Orleans, appear to save the day ("Orleans no Sei Senshi (Holy Soldiers of Orleans)"). After the knights are defeated, a director calls "cut", and the whole thing is reavealed to be just a rehearsal for a TV special to be broadcast on Ginga TV during summer vacation. The Black Knights are being played by the famous new idol group, the Three Lights, the prince and princess roles by Haruka and Michiru, and the Holy Warriors by Usagi, Minako, Makoto, and Ami.

The girls rejoice as the director tells them that they got the parts. Rei and two girls from another school arrive and complain that it is unfair that Juuban Municipal High School gets to use the Three Lights; as students at other schools, they do not get the chance to participate in the drama, and are upset because of it. Rei is particularly disappointed as she is the only one of her friends to be left out. The director then agrees to give her a role and they start filming the next scene, in which the prince and princess have one last heroic moment. Three of the Holy Warriors lie dead on the floor, with Usagi's character witnessing the scene as the prince and princess give their last goodbyes. As the princess dies, the prince tries to grab her hand one last time, but is unable to reach it before collapsing. Usagi looks shaken at this vision of her friends. In the shadows the director, who is in truth Kyaosu, watches them and laughs, observing that they have yet to experience real darkness. The two girls from the other school, revealed to be the disguised Sailor Mitis Kerokko and Sailor Tin Nyanko, scowl at him and tell him to get on with his job and make them dinner. He apologizes, but makes one last ominous comment before laughing and disappearing into the darkness.

Sailor Galaxia finishes her ritual to awaken the one she calls the "Queen of Hatred". The queen’s voice asks who has awakened her from her deep slumber, and Galaxia requests that the queen return in order to fill the Galaxy with her hatred and dark appetite once more. The voice seems interested, and Sailor Galaxia uses her sword to break the queen free from her prison.

In a flashback, a young girl struggles through a blizzard before finally collapsing, overcome by the cold. She takes out her last match, saying that until the match dies out, she wants to be left alone to dream. The voice of the queen replies that she cannot grant that wish; she says the girl must have realized by now that the world is too polluted and filthy. The girl refuses to believe this, but the queen reminds her that she only has this single match to keep her warm and that when it goes out she will die alone. The girl insists that she doesn't care, and though the queen insists that there are no dreams left on this planet, she lights the match, saying that there is still the fire of hope. Even as she watches the small flame of the match burn low, she repeats that she believes in dreams, and only a few moments later the flame goes out and she collapses. The queen observes that the girl who dreamed of a beautiful future only became a frozen corpse, and all that remained was a coffin of darkness. She curses the rotten Earth, and the rebirth of the Queen of Darkness, Queen Beryl, truly begins ("Yami no Hitsugi (Coffin of Darkness)").

Zoisite and Kunzite welcome her return and present Prince Endymion to her. The prince demands to know what is going on. Beryl attacks him and asks if he will choose her passion or her vengeance. Endymion says that she hasn’t changed, which infuriates her; she accuses him of having abandoned her in the past and says he will still forsake her today. She launches a series of relentless attacks against him, but Zoisite and Kunzite stop her and ask that she save her hatred for Usagi. Queen Beryl relents and tells them that now that the Dark Kingdom has been restored, they will settle their grudges against the Sailor Senshi. Kunzite and Zoisite tell her they have a plan set in motion, and she tells them to proceed one by one with the girls.

Back at school, Usagi, Haruka, Makoto, Minako, and Rei are in the gymnasium playing a basketball game against five girls from another school (who are the Sailor Animamates in disguise), while the other girls and Chibi Chibi look on. Usagi’s team wins the game, but a teacher appears and yells at them for not going home as they had been told to do. One of the girls asks him if he found out who the culprit was, but he says he hasn’t. The girl explains that the day before, students who had stayed late after school were attacked by an unknown individual, and now she is frightened. The teacher tells them to report any suspicious people to him and sends them all home. Everyone leaves except for Ami, who meets Saitou Izou, a handsome senior and member of the basketball team. He begins to flirt with her, and though Ami is shy at first, she seems easily taken in by his charms ("Itsuwari no Forevermore (False Forevermore)"). While they sing, the other girls come back and enjoy the romantic scene.

Just before they kiss, another basketball player makes his entrance and interrupts. He introduces himself as Saitou Izou’s cousin, Saitou Kun, and although Minako is visibly attracted to the newcomer, he barely notices her. Saitou Izou then invites them to a karaoke party organized by the basketball team. However, just as the girls rejoice, they hear a cry of pain. One of the girls from the other school has been attacked, and the group sees a miko running away from the scene. Rei arrives shortly afterward, wearing her miko robes, and asks if they heard the scream. The teacher and the two boys immediately accuse her, and the girls explain the circumstantial evidence to Rei. She cannot believe that her friends would even suspect her of being the culprit and runs away. Haruka and Michiru go on their own investigation while Usagi, Makoto, Ami, Hotaru, Chibi Chibi, and Setsuna start looking for the real culprit ("Kick Out a Bloody Mystery"), and are soon joined by Saitou Izou and Saitou Kun. Rei continues to pursue the other miko, while Haruka and Michiru run into the Three Lights as they also play detectives. Another girl from the other school is attacked and the girls see the false miko; thinking it might be Rei after all, they start running after her.

The teacher, who is really Kyaosu in disguise, reunites with Sailor Theta, Sailor Phi (the fake miko), Sailor Mitis Kerokko, and Sailor Tin Nyanko, and they explain their plan to frame Rei in order to create conflict between the Sailor Senshi. However, as they start making fun of the Sailor Senshi and mocking Rei in particular, Sailor Mars appears and attacks Sailor Phi and Sailor Theta, forcing them to retreat. The teacher tries to fake his innocence and says he was forced to help the villains. Sailor Mars doesn’t believe him, but is knocked down by Sailor Mitis Kerokko and Sailor Tin Nyanko. The girls arrive and find Rei unconscious, but before they can transform, Sailor Mitis Kerokko attacks them. Before the Sailor Animamates can attack again, the Sailor Starlights appear; Sailor Star Fighter attacks and forces them to retreat. Sailor Star Maker and Sailor Star Healer remark that, as always, the Sailor Senshi can’t do a thing on their own. Haruka retorts that they only let them handle the trash.

Setsuna calms both parties and reminds them that the important thing is to find out who these enemies were. Saitou Kun answers that they were probably Rei’s friends and Saitou Izou declares that the miko robes Sailor Phi left behind are the proof that she is guilty. Rei wakes up and the teacher immediately brings her to the police. The girls cannot believe that Rei is truly the culprit, but the boys convince them that no good will come out of staying at the school any longer. Minako, Makoto, and Ami all agree to go home, but Usagi asks that they go without her because she wants to be alone. Sailor Star Fighter tries to talk to her, but Sailor Star Healer says they have no time to waste with them and Sailor Star Maker observes that betrayal is a common thing in the universe, even among friends. The latter two Starlights depart, but Sailor Star Fighter encourages Usagi one last time before following them.

Usagi is deeply affected by the whole situation, even though Hotaru is convinced that it is all a trap and is determine to find the truth. Setsuna tries to discourage her, as she fears she might push herself too hard. Hotaru replies that even though she still cannot transform yet, she is still a Sailor Senshi, and runs off. Haruka and Michiru go after her. Usagi envies the couple because she doesn’t know what to think anymore and misses Mamoru terribly. She doesn’t understand why he hasn’t called or written to her since he left, and she just doesn’t know what to do anymore. Setsuna tells her to believe in him no matter what, that no matter how hard it is, she must have faith that Mamoru is watching over her and smiling; all she needs is to keep a strong memory of him in her heart. Setsuna adds that in Usagi's place she would be able to tolerate anything just for that, because love is something that can be waited for in quiet faith. Usagi is touched, but visibly surprised by Setsuna’s words. Before she can say anything, though, Usagi, Setsuna and Chibi Chibi are surprised by an ominous voice that speaks of the darkness inside the hearts of men. They turn around and are faced with Queen Beryl, who uses her powers to plunge them into darkness, separating them and altering the flow of space-time. The Garnet Rod appears and Setsuna realizes that she must go back to her post as the Space-Time Door has been opened.

In Shadow Galactica, Sailor Galaxia and her minions sing about their ambition of collecting all the Sailor Crystals in the Galaxy ("Galaxia Gorgeous"). Galaxia reveals that Queen Beryl’s revival was merely a device to force the awakening of Sailor Saturn, as she cannot let any true Star Seed escape her grasp. Elsewhere, Hotaru prays for the power to awaken in order to fight. Galaxia gladly answers Hotaru's prayers by attacking, but her power is stopped by a powerful light, which she and her minions quickly identify as Princess Kakyuu. Galaxia orders her troops to destroy Kakyuu for good as soon as possible, because as long as Kakyuu remains, Galaxia cannot control the entire universe, no matter how many Star Seeds she collects.

The Three Lights sing at a rehearsal ("Chasin' After You"), and after the song, the director congratulates them on their work. Once alone, Taiki and Yaten talk of how they are losing hope of ever reaching the person they are searching for, but Seiya says they must have faith and keep singing for her. Seiya decides to go back to school to be by Usagi’s side, even though Yaten tries to discourage him. Taiki sarcastically remarks that their leader is as reliable as ever. Yaten and Taiki are then surprised by the arrival of Rei, who is pursued by the teacher, who still accuses her of being the criminal. Rei declares that the teacher is a fraud, but he says she’s just lying again. Taiki, however, notices that the teacher and their director look very much alike. Realizing his charade has been discovered, the teacher says the director is his twin brother. The group calls for the director to come back out, and Kyaosu attempts to switch back and forth between his two personas until he cracks under the pressure and begs for mercy. They wait for him to give them the whole truth, but he’s too afraid to reveal anything. The Sailor Animamates arrive and save him the trouble by giving one of their human disguises to Taiki, allowing him to realize that both the director/teacher and his students were impostors. A battle then ensues; Kyaosu runs away with Rei in pursuit, and Taiki and Yaten are grabbed from behind by Sailor Phi, Sailor Chi, and Sailor Theta while the Animamates prepare to attack.

Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune arrive just in time and force the Animamates to fall back. Taiki and Yaten thank the Sailor Senshi for returning their earlier favor. Kyaosu returns only to find himself cornered. He decides to run away, but Rei also corners him and brings him back. Yaten, Taiki, Sailor Uranus, and Sailor Neptune declare that she may do as she pleases with him. Kyaosu begs the people in the audience who believe she should let him go to clap their hands, but Rei demands that those who believe he is absolutely unforgivable clap as well. Unfortunately for Kyaosu, the audience agrees with Rei, whereupon she cracks her knuckles and sets to work.

On top of the school roof, Usagi sings about her loneliness and longing for Mamoru, while Seiya joins her and sings of his desire to be by her side, protecting her ("I Miss You"). Seiya ask why she is there all by herself, and she replies that she is worried something horrible is coming. They are interrupted by Ami, Saitou Izou, and Saitou Kun; the latter says he’s glad that the criminal was arrested, but Ami reminds him that nothing was proven. Yaten and Taiki arrive and reveal that the real culprit, the teacher/director, has been apprehended. Usagi and Ami rejoice and everybody agrees to go get the truth out of him downtown, leaving Ami and Saitou Izou on their date. This is a ruse, however, as Kyaosu has previously admitted that both boys are working with the enemies. In order to trick them, while Saitou Izou has his back turned and starts to reveal his true identity to his past love, Yaten replaces Ami with a disguised Kyaosu. When Izou turns around and discovers with great shock and confusion who he was actually confessing to, Sailor Mars, Sailor Venus, Sailor Jupiter, Sailor Uranus, and Sailor Neptune make their entrance. Yaten and Taiki also arrive and push Saitou Kun to the ground. Sailor Mars orders them to expose their true identities. Saitou Izou reveals himself as Zoisite and Saitou Kun as Kunzite, their enemies from the Dark Kingdom.

A fight ensues and the Senshi are knocked down by the Shitennou after dealing with three of their minions. However, they are saved by the arrival of Sailor Moon and Sailor Mercury, who happily attacks the man who played with her heart. She is knocked away by Queen Beryl. Sailor Moon demands to know who she is, and the queen presents herself before attacking the Senshi. Sailor Star Fighter steps in the way to protect Sailor Moon, and Sailor Star Healer and Sailor Star Maker move to protect Sailor Star Fighter. The group seems in great peril but Queen Beryl’s attack is blocked by Sailor Pluto and the newly awakened Sailor Saturn, who uses her powers to render the queen and her followers unconscious ("To a Brand-New World"). Sailor Galaxia appears and sends the members of the Dark Kingdom back to the base. The Sailor Starlights recognize the one who destroyed their home world, and thus the Senshi learn the identity of their new enemy. They face off against her, but Galaxia quickly overpowers everyone and prepares to take their Star Seeds until she is interrupted by the arrival of Sailor Chibi Chibi Moon. She tells everyone not to lose hope, and Sailor Galaxia is forced to retreat as Princess Kakyuu finally reveals herself to her loyal Starlights, who are moved to tears at her return ("Toki Michite Kourin (Arrival When the Time Has Come)"). The princess joins forces with Sailor Moon, who welcomes her.

Act 2

In Shadow Galactica, the Shitennou and Endymion sing about their queen and she rejoices at having finally found an appropriate husband in Endymion; meanwhile, in Galaxia’s throne room, she and her followers mock the foolishness of the Dark Kingdom, who are merely puppets in their plan. The two groups rejoin and rejoice at the defeat of their mutual enemies ("Tenkuu no Utage (Banquet of the Heavens)"). Kunzite asks Sailor Galaxia if she will really keep her promise to let the Dark Kingdom have the Earth. The Animamates assure them that they would gladly give them a planet like this, but remind them that their plan was a failure; Kunzite points out that their repeated attacks also failed. Kyaosu explains that in short, both sides failed, but they angrily remind him that he was the one to blame for that. Galaxia warns all of them that she will not be as forgiving of failure next time before she sends them off. She then asks Queen Beryl about her secret weapon, Endymion; Beryl reveals he has become her personal puppet and that she plans to use him against Usagi. Sailor Galaxia says the most important thing is to get rid of Princess Kakyuu before dealing with Sailor Moon and her allies, and she sends Beryl to complete this task.

Princess Kakyuu, now reunited with her allies, explains to them that she has been in search of the Light of Hope and that they must now protect Sailor Moon. Seiya eagerly agrees and says he’ll defend this planet with his life. Yaten and especially Taiki disagree and say that they must return to Kinmoku. Kakyuu asks that they believe in her once more and unite their heart with the Silver Crystal ("Kakyuu-ouhi to Three Lights (Princess Kakyuu and the Three Lights)"). Usagi arrives with Chibi Chibi and congratulates Seiya and the others for having finally found their princess, but she says they should return to their home planet. Seiya protests that the Earth will be destroyed, but Usagi refuses to believe that. Princess Kakyuu insists that Usagi is the only one who can save the galaxy, as she is the princess who holds the Silver Crystal. The Three lights are shocked to learn this, but Chibi Chibi tells them that they must believe even if it is difficult. Kakyuu then thanks her, for it was her light that guided her to Earth. Usagi uses this moment to ask Chibi Chibi just who she is, but they are interrupted by a television broadcast of Galaxia’s threat to humanity; her announcement is followed by Queen Beryl, who says she will give Endymion back to the Sailor Senshi if they eliminate Princess Kakyuu. Princess Kakyuu says she will go to meet the enemy, despite Taiki's protests, because she cannot let this planet or the Light of Hope disappear.

As the rain pours down, the Senshi look upon the destruction of their city, and resolve to fight no matter the scale of their enemy. Haruka and Michiru separate from the group, and Sailor Moon appears to them and assures that they will protect the city so dear to them. Kyaosu suddenly appears and reveals that Ginga TV’s headquarters is the entrance to the enemy’s base and that the exit is the center of the galaxy, the Galaxy Cauldron. The Senshi are immediately suspicious of him, but he swears he only wants to help them defeat Galaxia. He says he will guide them to the enemy’s base but they must first decided who will go fight and in what order. To this end, he organises a game contest assisted by his three shadows ("Mizusakiannainin no Game (The Pilot's Game)"). The girls agree but refuse to let Usagi participate in case it’s a trap. The game is a scavenger hunt. The girls pair up in team and each team must send one of Kyaosu’s shadows to retrieve a certain object hidden in the audience. Once all three objects are found, the girls are sent to Ginga TV. They ask that Usagi have faith in them and she is left alone with Kyaosu who as yet another special game in store for her. He asks that she tell him in ten seconds all the memories she can’t forget. She takes too long to answer, but Kyaosu still says she can trust him and asks if she’s prepared, then sends her to Ginga TV.

Sailor Moon arrives in a room with televisions displaying Queen Beryl. Usagi asks where she has taken Endymion, and Beryl replies that he has become her husband. Queen Beryl says that she will relieve Usagi of all those memories she can’t forget and knocks her down with an attack before appearing in person. She reminds Usagi of her past life and of how she stole Endymion away from Beryl, who holds her responsible for the battle between the Earth and the Moon. Usagi begs the queen to stop making her remember those awful memories, but Queen Beryl replies that she will be the one to die this time. Beryl prepares to strike, but Kakyuu stops her, saying that if it is her life they are after, she will gladly give it to protect Sailor Moon. Sailor Moon begs the princess to go home to her planet, but Kakyuu says she is done running away. Princess Kakyuu asks Beryl why she would help Galaxia knowing that all stars will disappear under her reign, and if she doesn’t love this planet of which she was once the ruler. Queen Beryl replies that Sailor Galaxia promised to let her have Earth, but the Starlights laugh at her gullibility, saying she is being deceived. Just then, the Shitennou arrive and announce that Endymion has been killed.

The Animamates also appear and are revealed to be the ones who killed Tuxedo Mask. Distraught, Queen Beryl and her followers leave the scene, followed by the arrival of Galaxia, who holds the Earth’s Star Seed in her hands and tells Sailor Moon that Tuxedo Mask died crying her name. Usagi pleads for Galaxia to give back Mamoru’s Star Seed, but Sailor Galaxia knocks her down and says she will have to fight for it. Sailor Moon says she doesn’t want to fight. Galaxia is infuriated to hear this from a Sailor Senshi and sends a deadly blast at her, but Kakyuu steps in to protect her. As she dies, Princess Kakyuu begs her Starlights to keep protecting their last hope, Sailor Moon. The Starlights weep at the loss of their beloved princess, and Sailor Galaxia laughs at the foolishness of the Senshi who have faith in each other and sends the group elsewhere before flying away.

The Inner Senshi battle the Sailor Animamates, but when Galaxia appears, they are all overpowered. Still, they refuse to join with the Shadow Galactica as they do not care to give their lives to protect their princess. Sailor Galaxia wonders why she is so important to them, and they say that she represents their dream, a Senshi like Galaxia who doesn’t believe in anything will never understand that. This greatly angers Sailor Galaxia, who summons Sailor Moon, Sailor Uranus, and Sailor Neptune just so they can witness her killing their allies. As they die, the Inner Senshi sing about their love for Usagi ("Sorezore no Elegy (Each One's Elegy)"). Galaxia delivers the final blow and the Senshi disappear. Sailor Moon is completely devastated and blames herself for her friends’ deaths, but Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune tell her to stop crying as it won’t bring them back. Sailor Star Maker says they can’t possibly beat Galaxia, but Sailor Neptune tells her that it’s because of that kind of mindset that they were unable to protect their own princess. Sailor Star Maker admits that they are right and that the Starlights have no one to protect anymore.

Sailor Pluto and Sailor Saturn arrive, and the latter asks them if they really have no one to protect, hinting that they still have Sailor Moon, which Sailor Star Fighter seems to understand. Sailor Uranus says it’s up to Sailor Pluto and Sailor Saturn to protect Sailor Moon. The two of them want to join Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune in battle, but Sailor Uranus reminds them that they promised that someone had to stay behind with the princess. Sailor Moon tries to stop Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune, saying that she doesn’t want to lose any more important people, but the two Senshi remain firm and challenge Sailor Galaxia, demanding that she leave the other Senshi out of it.

Sailor Galaxia accepts and teleports the others away so that she is left alone with her two opponents. Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune fight with all their strength but they are no match for her, and before she can finish them off her two Animamates arrive and request the finishing blow. Before they can attack, though, they are stopped by the Shitennou and Queen Beryl. The queen asks Galaxia if she was only revived to be used as a puppet. Sailor Galaxia admits without fear that they were all just her tools. The Shitennou say that they are Endymion's guard and Queen Beryl’s knights and therefore are more than glad to give up their lives for their beloved queen and planet. Sailor Galaxia replies that they should just be quiet and die, to which they answer that they will, as long as she joins them in death. Beryl is shocked by their loyalty and devotion, and they add that dying for her has always been their dream, and that because they killed their master, Sailor Galaxia and her minions have become their worst enemy. Infuriated, the Animamates attack them, but the Shitennou show they are more powerful. The Animamates ask their leader for help, but Sailor Galaxia simply dismisses their weakness and finishes them off before killing the Shitennou herself. Queen Beryl tries attacking her but is knocked down, and as Sailor Galaxia prepares to give her a dignified death, she is stopped by Sailor Saturn and Sailor Pluto. Beryl wonders why they saved her. Pluto answers that she did because they share the same unrequited love ("Onna no Ronsou (The Women's Dispute)"). Sailor Saturn then uses her powers to allow the queen to escape to the other end of space-time.

Sailor Galaxia says the people of this planet keep entertaining her. Sailor Pluto prepares to attack, but Sailor Uranus says she’s interested in serving Galaxia and asks Sailor Neptune if she will join her. Sailor Neptune says she would follow her even to hell. Sailor Galaxia observes that she is pleased to see that there are still some Senshi with brains and takes their Star Seeds. The two Senshi then appear with Galactica Bracelets on their wrists, ready to attack their former allies. Sailor Pluto cannot believe what is happening and asks why they did such a thing; they answer by saying that the others should know it is their way of fighting ("Orleans no Sei Senshi ~ Uranus to Neptune no Uragiri (Holy Soldiers of Orleans ~ Uranus and Neptune's Betrayal)"). Sailor Galaxia is more than pleased with this display of betrayal, and summons Sailor Moon so she can witness her friends killing each other. As Sailor Pluto and Sailor Saturn die, they beg Sailor Moon to not stop believing in people. Sailor Galaxia gloats that her bracelets have turned Sailor Moon's former allies into her slaves and she orders them to kill Sailor Moon. At the last moment, the two turn against Sailor Galaxia and blast her with their bracelets in order to get her Star Seed, but discover that she doesn’t have one. Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune are shocked, and Sailor Galaxia calls them idiots before striking them with a deadly blast of power. As they die, they entrust their princess to the care of the Sailor Starlights, and hold hands one last time before disappearing.

Sailor Galaxia laughs, but Sailor Moon wonders if she really enjoys killing fellow Sailor Senshi, because she believes that in Galaxia's heart she knows this is not the way. This angers Galaxia, who orders her to shut up, but Sailor Moon refuses to stay silent. Beryl then reappears, proclaiming this is Galaxia’s defeat. Sailor Galaxia wonders how she came back and the queen explains that with Sailor Pluto dead, there is no one protecting space-time anymore. Sailor Galaxia taunts Beryl, saying she probably came back to die as she felt lonely, but Beryl says the real lonely one is none other than Galaxia, pointing out that even though Sailor Galaxia killed her friends, Sailor Moon would rather try to save her than hate her. She says that always fighting has made Galaxia the real miserable one. Galaxia then says she will make them hate her and takes her leave, revealing her strongest soldier, Tuxedo Mask. He quickly overpowers the Starlights and attacks Sailor Moon. Queen Beryl tries to reason with Galaxia, but is knocked down by Tuxedo Mask. The queen begs Sailor Moon to fight as this Tuxedo Mask is not the real one, but is in truth one of Galaxia’s puppets. Even so, Sailor Moon cannot bring herself to fight her beloved. He tries to get her to fight, saying her reluctance to do battle caused her to lose her friends, but Sailor Moon says that they are not dead and that she believes she will see them again. Tuxedo Mask then prepares to kill her, but Queen Beryl steps in front of her and takes the blow in Sailor Moon's place. Before vanishing, Beryl says that without the Moon Princess, this world will be destroyed and she cannot allow that to happen. Even now with nothing left, she cannot hate Sailor Moon anymore and she can go meet with that girl who had a beautiful dream and froze to death.

Tuxedo Mask says his mission is to destroy the world, and for that, he must kill Sailor Moon. However, as the Starlights try to intervene, Sailor Chibi Chibi Moon arrives and says that they must stand back and let Sailor Moon act alone as this battle will determine the fate of the world. Tuxedo Mask says that all the endless suffering will end with Sailor Moon’s death, but Sailor Moon is not ready to die yet and she sends a powerful blast at her opponent. She says she loves this world and that’s why she will once again fight to get her friends and Mamoru back ("Oitsumerarete (Cornered)"). She kills the fake Tuxedo Mask and Chibi Chibi reappears. She reveals herself to be the Light of Hope and takes Sailor Moon and the Starlights to the birthplace of all stars, the Galaxy Cauldron. She explains the story of the past: the source of all evil in the galaxy, Chaos, was born and threatened to plunge the world into his darkness. In order to stop him, the strongest Sailor Senshi in the galaxy, Sailor Galaxia, imprisoned him into her own body. As she felt him corrupting her, she sent her Star Seed to other end of the galaxy, where Chaos would not find it. Chibi Chibi explains that she the personification of this Star Seed and that now, without her, Galaxia has become a tyrant.

Sailor Moon and the Sailor Starlights arrive. Galaxia is glad to see Sailor Moon finally ready to fight but she explains that unlike Sailor Galaxia, her power does not come from hatred, but rather from her love and faith in her friends and their future. Sailor Galaxia shows them all the Star Seeds she has collected throughout the galaxy and says they'll have to fight to get them back. The Starlights decide to avenge their princess and entrust all their hope for the future to Sailor Moon and her Crystal. They combine all of their powers in one blast and manage to knock Galaxia away. Their joy is cut short when Galaxia reappears in a darker version of her sailor fuku. She attacks them, but Sailor Moon is convinced that this appearance is neither a real Sailor Senshi nor the real Galaxia, and she calls out to Galaxia, asking for her light. Sailor Chibi Chibi Moon answers her prayers and appears to persuade the corrupted Galaxia to give up all the fighting ("Mou Ii no (Enough)"). Galaxia refuses to listen and attacks her, but Chibi Chibi flies away.

Chibi Chibi gives her powers to Sailor Moon, allowing her to transform into Eternal Sailor Moon. The Light of Hope then transforms into the Sealing Sword. Sailor Moon concentrates all the power of the sword into one powerful attack against Galaxia, who is freed from Chaos’ influence. She thanks Sailor Moon before disappearing. Kyaosu than appears and is filled with joy at Galaxia’s defeat and his recovered freedom. He gives thanks to Sailor Moon and the Starlights. However, just as they are leaving, his voice suddenly turns very deep and he reveals that he is in fact Chaos, and that they actually just freed him from Galaxia’s body. He jumps into the Galaxy Cauldron and becomes one with it, then knocks them all down with his power. He says that now that he is free, he has become the greatest force of destruction in the galaxy. He plans to take Sailor Moon’s Silver Crystal in order to return the galaxy to its original state of complete darkness.

The Senshi feel their strength being taken away. Chaos says that the Galaxy Cauldron, the birthplace of all stars, will become their grave. However, just as the Senshi are ready to give up, Sailor Galaxia appears with her hair loose and wearing a gold and silver cape. She attacks and severely weakens Chaos. She explains that the Cauldron is the origin of all lights, and entrusts all of her hope for the future in Sailor Moon before plunging into the primordial sea of the Cauldron. Chaos then accuses Sailor Moon of murdering her siblings. He explains that all the enemies she has fought and killed in the past were all born from the Cauldron, as she was. He says that she is the light and that he is the darkness, and that the time has come for them to become one again so that he may rule the entire universe. Sailor Moon is distraught after learning this, uncertain what to fight for anymore.

She begins to hear the voices of her friends cheering her on and telling her not to give up. They all appear before her, and Sailor Mercury explains that Galaxia’s light released and guided them to her. Sailor Pluto says that no one can destroy the place where the stars are born and Sailor Mars adds that so long as this place exists, they will keep on living and that nothing can change that. They then hear the voices of Mamoru and Princess Kakyuu encouraging them all to fight, and Sailor Moon gives up all of her fear and hesitation. The Sailor Senshi are once again ready to fight to save the Galaxy ("La Fatalité Sei Senshi (The Fated Holy Soldiers)"). They unite all of their powers in one final blow and manage to finally destroy Chaos.

The victorious Sailor Senshi are amazed at the sudden flood of light. Princess Kakyuu appears and explains that they are all the stolen Sailor Crystals returning to their home planets. The Starlights wonder if it is due to the Silver Crystal's power, but Tuxedo Mask arrives and explains that it is due to the union of all the Sailor Crystals. Sailor Moon falls into the arms of her beloved, and he tells her that the reason why all of their enemies seek her power is because they really seek the feeling that she gets from being loved by him and all of her friends. Sailor Moon understands that this is also why everybody wants to be one, because that is the way they all began, and Queen Beryl and even Chaos are also part of it. She is confident that they will be able to create a future for themselves, because everyone has their own Star Seed. That is why they must keep going forward: so they can create a story of love that lasts for all eternity ("Densetsu Seitan (Legendary Birth)"). Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask stand together, and all present kneel before the royal couple.

    Eien Densetsu Kaiteiban - The Final First Stage 

Act 1

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eienkdvd.jpg
Sailors Chi, Phi, and Theta dance in the shadows before exiting, followed by a quick confrontation between Tuxedo Mask and Sailor Galaxia. Tuxedo Mask is defeated and his Star Seed taken. Galaxia comments on its beauty and shares her desire for more Star Seeds before exiting.

A princess flees from three Black Knights amidst a larger battle. She is cornered, and it appears that all is lost. However, a team of four female knights, the Holy Warriors of Orleans, appear to save the day ("Orleans no Sei Senshi (Holy Soldiers of Orleans)"). After the knights are defeated, a director calls "cut", and the whole thing is reavealed to be just a rehearsal for a TV special to be broadcast on Ginga TV during summer vacation. The Black Knights are being played by the famous new idol group, the Three Lights, the princess role by Hotaru, and the Holy Warriors by Usagi, Minako, Makoto, and Ami.

The girls take a brief break. Rei arrives and complains that it is unfair that Juuban Municipal High School gets to use the Three Lights; as a student at another school, she did not get the chance to participate in the drama, and is upset because of it. Rei is particularly disappointed as she is the only one of her friends to be left out. The sponsor, Banzai, then agrees to give her a role in her own drama. Banzai wants to do a scene where the hero and heroine are separated, and gets the director to be a stand-in. As he gets dressed up for the part, Usagi mistakes the director for Mamoru. They start filming the next scene, in which Usagi and the director's characters have one last heroic moment. As the hero dies, he tries to grab the heroine's hand one last time, but is unable to reach it before collapsing. Usagi looks shaken. After everyone leaves, Banzai, who is in truth Kyaosu, watches them and observes that the drama is already half reality.

Sailor Galaxia is about to awaken the one she calls the "Queen of Hatred." The queen’s voice asks who has awakened her from her deep slumber, and Galaxia requests that the queen return in order to fill the Galaxy with her hatred and dark appetite once more. The voice seems interested, and Sailor Galaxia uses her sword to break the queen free from her prison. The rebirth of the Queen of Darkness, Queen Beryl, truly begins ("Yami no Hitsugi (Coffin of Darkness)"). Prince Endymion appears before her. Thinking that he is an enemy, Beryl attacks him and asks if he will choose her passion or her vengeance. Endymion says that she hasn’t changed, which infuriates her; she accuses him of having abandoned her in the past and says he will still forsake her today. She launches a series of relentless attacks against him, but Kyaosu intervenes and asks that she save her hatred for Usagi. Queen Beryl relents and tells them that now that the Dark Kingdom has been restored, they will settle their grudges against the Sailor Senshi.

Back at school, Usagi, Haruka, Makoto, Minako, Rei, and Michiru are in the gymnasium playing a basketball game against five girls from another school (who are the Sailor Animamates in disguise), while Hotaru and Chibi Chibi look on. A teacher, Kyoto-sensei, appears and yells at them for not going home as they had been told to. A gym teacher (Endymion in disguise) also shows up and reprimands the girls for being in the gym without permission. Students have been attacked lately, so the teachers shoo them out of the gym. The teachers discuss their plan and engage in some self-referential humor while alone in the room. They hide as Ami approaches, trying to sort through some feelings ("Dream Yume wa Ookiku (Dream, Dreams are Big)"). The gym teacher, Tony Chiba, enters and attempts to converse with Ami in English. He and Kyoto-sensei encourage Ami to consider studying abroad. The rest of the group enters and everyone begins to congratulate Ami on studying abroad. Usagi is sullen for a moment, but she cheers up and congratulates Ami as well.

Just then, they hear a cry of pain. One of the girls from the other school has been attacked, and the group sees a miko running away from the scene. Rei arrives shortly afterward, wearing her miko robes, and asks if they heard the scream. The teachers immediately accuse her, and the girls explain the circumstantial evidence to Rei. She cannot believe that her friends would even suspect her of being the culprit and runs away. Haruka and Michiru go on their own investigation while Usagi, Makoto, Ami, Hotaru, Chibi Chibi, and Setsuna start looking for the real culprit ("Kick Out a Bloody Mystery"). Rei continues to pursue the other miko, while Haruka and Michiru run into the Three Lights as they also play detectives. Another girl from the other school is attacked and the girls see the false miko; thinking it might be Rei after all, they start running after her.

The teacher, who is really Kyaosu in disguise, reunites with Sailor Theta, Sailor Phi (the fake miko), and Sailor Chi, and they explain their plan to frame Rei in order to create conflict between the Sailor Senshi. However, as they start making fun of the Sailor Senshi and mocking Rei in particular, Sailor Mars appears and attacks Sailor Phi and Sailor Theta, forcing them to retreat. The teacher tries to fake his innocence and says he was forced to help the villains. Sailor Mars doesn’t believe him, but is knocked down by two of the Animamates. The girls arrive and find Rei unconscious, but before they can transform, the Animamates attack them. Before the Animamates can attack again, the Sailor Starlights appear; Sailor Star Fighter attacks and forces them to retreat. Sailor Star Maker and Sailor Star Healer remark that, as always, the Sailor Senshi can’t do a thing on their own. Haruka retorts that they only let them handle the trash.

Setsuna calms both parties and reminds them that the important thing is to find out who these enemies were. Tony Chiba answers that they were probably Rei’s friends, and Kyoto-sensei declares that the miko robes Sailor Phi left behind are the proof that she is guilty. Rei wakes up and the teacher immediately brings her to the police. The girls cannot believe that Rei is truly the culprit, but the teachers convince them that no good will come out of staying at the school any longer. Minako, Makoto, and Ami all agree to go home, but Usagi asks that they go without her because she wants to be alone. Sailor Star Fighter tries to talk to her, but Sailor Star Healer says they have no time to waste with them and Sailor Star Maker observes that betrayal is a common thing in the universe, even among friends. The latter two Starlights depart, but Sailor Star Fighter encourages Usagi one last time before following them.

Usagi is deeply affected by the whole situation, even though Hotaru is convinced that it is all a trap and is determine to find the truth. Setsuna tries to discourage her, as she fears she might push herself too hard. Hotaru replies that even though she still cannot transform yet, she is still a Sailor Senshi, and runs off. Haruka and Michiru go after her. Usagi envies the couple because she doesn’t know what to think anymore and misses Mamoru terribly. She doesn’t understand why he hasn’t called or written to her since he left, and she just doesn’t know what to do anymore. Setsuna tells her to believe in him no matter what, that no matter how hard it is, she must have faith that Mamoru is watching over her and smiling; all she needs is to keep a strong memory of him in her heart. Setsuna adds that in Usagi's place she would be able to tolerate anything just for that, because love is something that can be waited for in quiet faith. Usagi is touched, but visibly surprised by Setsuna’s words. Before she can say anything, though, Usagi, Setsuna and Chibi Chibi are surprised by an ominous voice that speaks of the darkness inside the hearts of men. They turn around and are faced with Queen Beryl, who uses her powers to plunge them into darkness, separating them and altering the flow of space-time. The Garnet Rod appears and Setsuna realizes that she must go back to her post as the Space-Time Door has been opened.

In Shadow Galactica, Sailor Galaxia and her minions sing about their ambition of collecting all the Sailor Crystals in the galaxy ("Galaxia Gorgeous"). Galaxia reveals that Queen Beryl’s revival was merely a device to force the awakening of Sailor Saturn, as she cannot let any true Star Seed escape her grasp. Elsewhere, Hotaru prays for the power to awaken in order to fight. Galaxia gladly answers Hotaru's prayers by attacking, but her power is stopped by a powerful light, which she and her minions quickly identify as Princess Kakyuu. Galaxia orders her troops to destroy Kakyuu for good as soon as possible, because as long as Kakyuu remains, Galaxia cannot control the entire universe, no matter how many Star Seeds she collects.

The Three Lights sing at a rehearsal ("Chasin' After You"), and after the song, Banzai congratulates them on their work. Once alone, Taiki and Yaten talk of how they are losing hope of ever reaching the person they are searching for, but Seiya says they must have faith and keep singing for her. Seiya decides to go back to school to be by Usagi’s side, even though Yaten tries to discourage him. Taiki sarcastically remarks that their leader is as reliable as ever. Yaten and Taiki are then surprised by the arrival of Rei, who is pursued by the teacher, who still accuses her of being the criminal. Rei declares that the teacher is a fraud, but he says she’s just lying again. Taiki, however, notices that the teacher and their director look very much alike. Realizing his charade has been discovered, the teacher says the director is his twin brother. The group calls for the director to come back out, and Kyaosu attempts to switch back and forth between his two personas until he cracks under the pressure and begs for mercy. They wait for him to give them the whole truth, but he’s too afraid to reveal anything. The Sailor Animamates arrive and save him the trouble by giving one of their human disguises to Taiki, allowing him to realize that both the director/teacher and his students were impostors. A battle then ensues; Kyaosu runs away with Rei in pursuit, and Taiki and Yaten are knocked down by the Animamates

Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune arrive just in time and force the Animamates to fall back. Taiki and Yaten thank the Sailor Senshi for returning their earlier favor. Kyaosu returns only to find himself cornered. He decides to run away, but Rei also corners him and brings him back. Yaten, Taiki, Sailor Uranus, and Sailor Neptune declare that she may do as she pleases with him. Kyaosu tries to convince Rei to let him off the hook, whereupon she cracks her knuckles and gets to work.

On top of the school roof, Usagi reminisces about Mamoru ("Gondola no Koibito-tachi (Gondola Sweethearts)"). She then sings about her loneliness and longing for Mamoru, while Seiya joins her and sings of his desire to be by her side, protecting her ("I Miss You"). Seiya asks why she is there all by herself, and she replies that she is worried something horrible is coming. They are interrupted by Yaten and Taiki arrive with Kyaosu in tow. Kyaosu claims to be on their side, and eventually, they leave him alone on the rooftop. Endymion enters and the two begin to discuss their plan, only to be ambushed by the four Inner Senshi, Uranus, and Neptune. They attempt to attack Endymion, who knocks them down. Before he can attack again, Super Sailor Moon enters. Mercury and Mars both attack him, at which point, Moon realizes that it's Endymion, who introduces himself as "Shadow Galactica's ultimate soldier".

Queen Beryl then herself before attacking the Senshi. Sailor Star Fighter steps in the way to protect Sailor Moon, and Sailor Star Healer and Sailor Star Maker move to protect Sailor Star Fighter. The group seems to be in great peril, but Queen Beryl’s attack is blocked by Sailor Pluto and the newly awakened Sailor Saturn, who uses her powers to render the queen and her followers unconscious ("To a Brand-New World"). Sailor Galaxia appears and sends the members of the Dark Kingdom back to the base. The Sailor Starlights recognize the one who destroyed their home world, and thus the Senshi learn the identity of their new enemy. They face off against her, but Galaxia quickly overpowers everyone and prepares to take their Star Seeds until she is interrupted by the arrival of Sailor Chibi Chibi Moon. She tells everyone not to lose hope, and Sailor Galaxia is forced to retreat as Princess Kakyuu finally reveals herself to her loyal Starlights, who are moved to tears at her return ("Toki Michite Kourin (Arrival When the Time Has Come)"). The princess joins forces with Sailor Moon, who welcomes her.

Act 2

In Shadow Galactica, it is revealed that Shadow Galactica has now conquered 80% of the universe. However, Galaxia is less than pleased with how things have been progressing, and orders her followers to defeat Kakyuu ("Galaxia no Dokusai (Galaxia's Dictatorship)"). Beryl and Endymion enter. Beryl asks Galaxia if she will let the Dark Kingdom have the Earth. Galaxia assures her that she would gladly give them a planet like this. She then asks Queen Beryl about her secret weapon, Endymion; Beryl reveals he has become her personal puppet and that she plans to use him against Usagi. Sailor Galaxia says the most important thing is to get rid of Princess Kakyuu before dealing with Sailor Moon and her allies, and she sends Beryl to complete this task.

Princess Kakyuu, now reunited with her allies, explains to them that she has been in search of the Light of Hope and that they must now protect Sailor Moon. Seiya eagerly agrees and says he’ll defend this planet with his life. Yaten and especially Taiki disagree and say that they must return to Kinmoku. Kakyuu asks that they believe in her once more and unite their heart with the Silver Crystal ("Kakyuu-ouhi to Three Lights (Princess Kakyuu and the Three Lights)"). Usagi arrives with Chibi Chibi and congratulates Seiya and the others for having finally found their princess, but she says they should return to their home planet. Seiya protests that the Earth will be destroyed, but Usagi refuses to believe that. Princess Kakyuu insists that Usagi is the only one who can save the galaxy, as she is the princess who holds the Silver Crystal. The Three lights are shocked to learn this, but Chibi Chibi tells them that they must believe even if it is difficult. Kakyuu then thanks her, for it was her light that guided her to Earth. Usagi uses this moment to ask Chibi Chibi just who she is, but they are interrupted by a television broadcast of Galaxia’s threat to humanity; her announcement is followed by Queen Beryl, who lets Usagi know that she has Endymion and wants Usagi to face her alone. Princess Kakyuu says she will go to meet the enemy, despite Taiki's protests, because she cannot let this planet or the Light of Hope disappear.

As it rains, the girls look upon the destruction of their city, and resolve to fight no matter the scale of their enemy. Ami then enters, already transformed into Sailor Mercury, and the senshi decide to go ahead and fight, just so long as one of them stays alive for Usagi. Elsewhere, Usagi has already transformed into Super Sailor Moon and is preparing to sneak away to fight ("Tabidachi (Departing)"). Kyaosu appears to Moon and reveals that Ginga TV’s headquarters is the entrance to the enemy’s base and that the exit is the center of the galaxy, the Galaxy Cauldron. She is suspicious of him, but he swears he only wants to help her defeat Galaxia. He also reveals that the Light of Hope is Galaxia's weakness, and that the Endymion she has seen is a fake. In return, Moon gets him to agree to save one of her friends.

Sailor Moon encounters Queen Beryl. Usagi asks where she has taken Endymion, and Beryl replies that he has become her husband. Queen Beryl says that she will relieve Usagi of all those memories she can’t forget and knocks her down with an attack before appearing in person. She reminds Usagi of her past life and of how she stole Endymion away from Beryl, who holds her responsible for the battle between the Earth and the Moon. Usagi begs the queen to stop making her remember those awful memories, but Queen Beryl replies that she will be the one to die this time. Beryl prepares to strike, but Kakyuu stops her, saying that if it is her life they are after, she will gladly give it to protect Sailor Moon. Sailor Moon begs the princess to go home to her planet, but Kakyuu says she is done running away. Princess Kakyuu asks Beryl why she would help Galaxia knowing that all stars will disappear under her reign, and if she doesn’t love this planet of which she was once the ruler. Queen Beryl replies that Sailor Galaxia promised to let her have Earth. Endymion enters, and Moon points out that he is an imposter, and that Beryl is being deceived.

Galaxia arrives, holding the Earth’s Star Seed in her hands. She tells Sailor Moon that Tuxedo Mask died crying her name. Usagi pleads for Galaxia to give back Mamoru’s Star Seed. Galaxia knocks her down and confirms that Endymion is dead; this Endymion nothing more than a mud puppet created by her. Beryl is distraught, and attempts to get near Galaxia, but is knocked aside. Galaxia tells Moon that if she wants the Star Seed, then she will have to fight for it. Sailor Moon says she doesn’t want to fight. Galaxia is infuriated to hear this from a Sailor Senshi and sends a deadly blast at her, but Kakyuu steps in to protect her. As she dies, Princess Kakyuu manages to tell the Starlights about the Light of Hope, and only manages to get out the words "Sailor Moon" with regard to her last request. The Starlights weep at the loss of their beloved princess, and Sailor Galaxia laughs at the foolishness of the Senshi who have faith in each other and sends the group elsewhere.

The Inner Senshi battle the Sailor Animamates, but when Galaxia appears, they are all overpowered. Still, they refuse to join with the Shadow Galactica as they do not care to give their lives to protect their princess. Sailor Galaxia wonders why she is so important to them, and they say that she represents their dream, a Senshi like Galaxia who doesn’t believe in anything will never understand that. This greatly angers Sailor Galaxia, who summons Sailor Moon, Sailor Uranus, and Sailor Neptune just so they can witness her killing their allies. As they die, the Inner Senshi sing about their love for Usagi ("Sorezore no Elegy (Each One's Elegy)"). Galaxia delivers the final blow and the Senshi disappear. Sailor Moon is completely devastated and blames herself for her friends’ deaths, but Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune tell her to stop crying as it won’t bring them back. Sailor Star Maker says they can’t possibly beat Galaxia, but Sailor Neptune tells her that it’s because of that kind of mindset that they were unable to protect their own princess. Sailor Star Maker admits that they are right and that the Starlights have no one to protect anymore.

Sailor Pluto and Sailor Saturn arrive, and the latter asks them if they really have no one to protect, hinting that they still have Sailor Moon, which Sailor Star Fighter seems to understand. Sailor Uranus says it’s up to Sailor Pluto and Sailor Saturn to protect Sailor Moon. The two of them want to join Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune in battle, but Sailor Uranus reminds them that they promised that someone had to stay behind with the princess. Sailor Moon tries to stop Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune, saying that she doesn’t want to lose any more important people, but the two Senshi remain firm and challenge Sailor Galaxia, demanding that she leave the other Senshi out of it.

Sailor Galaxia accepts and teleports the others away so that she is left alone with her two opponents. Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune fight with all their strength but they are no match for her. Before she can finish them off, the Animamates arrive and request the finishing blow. Before they can attack, though, they are stopped by Queen Beryl. The queen asks Galaxia if she was only revived to be used as a puppet. Sailor Galaxia admits without fear that she was just her tool. Sailor Galaxia replies that they should just be quiet and die, to which she answers that she will, as long as she joins her in death. Beryl declares that Galaxia and her minions have become her enemy. Infuriated, the Animamates attack her. The Animamates ask their leader for help, but Sailor Galaxia simply dismisses their weakness and finishes them off. Queen Beryl tries attacking her but is knocked down, and as Sailor Galaxia prepares to give her a dignified death, she is stopped by Sailor Saturn and Sailor Pluto. Beryl wonders why they saved her. Pluto answers that she did because they share the same unrequited love ("Onna no Ronsou (The Women's Dispute)"). Sailor Saturn then uses her powers to allow the queen to escape to the other end of space-time.

Sailor Galaxia says the people of this planet keep entertaining her. Sailor Pluto prepares to attack, but Sailor Uranus says she’s interested in serving Galaxia and asks Sailor Neptune if she will join her. Sailor Neptune says she would follow her even to hell. Sailor Galaxia observes that she is pleased to see that there are still some Senshi with brains and takes their Star Seeds. The two Senshi then appear with Galactica Bracelets on their wrists, ready to attack their former allies. Sailor Pluto cannot believe what is happening and asks why they did such a thing; they answer by saying that the others should know it is their way of fighting ("Orleans no Sei Senshi ~ Uranus to Neptune no Uragiri (Holy Soldiers of Orleans ~ Uranus and Neptune's Betrayal)"). Sailor Galaxia is more than pleased with this display of betrayal, and summons Sailor Moon so she can witness her friends killing each other. As Sailor Pluto and Sailor Saturn die, they beg Sailor Moon to not stop believing in people. Sailor Galaxia gloats that her bracelets have turned Sailor Moon's former allies into her slaves and she orders them to kill Sailor Moon. At the last moment, the two turn against Sailor Galaxia and blast her with their bracelets in order to get her Star Seed, but discover that she doesn’t have one. Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune are shocked, and Sailor Galaxia calls them idiots before striking them with a deadly blast of power. As they die, they entrust their princess to the care of the Sailor Starlights, and hold hands one last time before disappearing.

Sailor Galaxia laughs, but Sailor Moon wonders if she really enjoys killing fellow Sailor Senshi, because she believes that in Galaxia's heart she knows this is not the way. This angers Galaxia, who orders her to shut up, but Sailor Moon refuses to stay silent. Beryl then reappears, proclaiming this is Galaxia’s defeat. Sailor Galaxia wonders how she came back and the queen explains that with Sailor Pluto dead, there is no one protecting space-time anymore. Sailor Galaxia taunts Beryl, saying she probably came back to die as she felt lonely, but Beryl says the real lonely one is none other than Galaxia, pointing out that even though Sailor Galaxia killed her friends, Sailor Moon would rather try to save her than hate her. She says that always fighting has made Galaxia the real miserable one. Galaxia then says she will make them hate her and takes her leave, revealing her strongest soldier, Tuxedo Mask. He quickly overpowers the Starlights and attacks Sailor Moon. Queen Beryl tries to reason with Galaxia, but is knocked down by Tuxedo Mask. The queen begs Sailor Moon to fight as this Tuxedo Mask is not the real one, but is in truth one of Galaxia’s puppets. Even so, Sailor Moon cannot bring herself to fight her beloved. He tries to get her to fight, saying her reluctance to do battle caused her to lose her friends, but Sailor Moon says that they are not dead and that she believes she will see them again. Tuxedo Mask then prepares to kill her, but Queen Beryl steps in front of her and takes the blow in Sailor Moon's place. Before vanishing, Beryl says that without the Moon Princess, this world will be destroyed and she cannot allow that to happen. Even now with nothing left, she cannot hate Sailor Moon anymore and she can go meet with that girl who had a beautiful dream and froze to death.

Tuxedo Mask says his mission is to destroy the world, and for that, he must kill Sailor Moon. However, as the Starlights try to intervene, Sailor Chibi Chibi Moon arrives and says that they must stand back and let Sailor Moon act alone as this battle will determine the fate of the world. Tuxedo Mask says that all the endless suffering will end with Sailor Moon’s death, but Sailor Moon is not ready to die yet and she sends a powerful blast at her opponent. She says she loves this world and that’s why she will once again fight to get her friends and Mamoru back. She kisses the fake Tuxedo Mask and he gives her some encouragement before fading away. Mercury enters, and it is revealed that Kyaosu managed to spare her life. Chiba Chibi enters and reveals herself to be the Light of Hope and takes Sailor Moon and the Starlights to the birthplace of all stars, the Galaxy Cauldron. She explains the story of the past: the source of all evil in the galaxy, Chaos, was born and threatened to plunge the world into his darkness. In order to stop him, the strongest Sailor Senshi in the galaxy, Sailor Galaxia, imprisoned him into her own body. As she felt him corrupting her, she sent her Star Seed to other end of the galaxy, where Chaos would not find it. Chibi Chibi explains that she the personification of this Star Seed and that now, without her, Galaxia has become a tyrant.

Sailor Moon. Sailor Mercury, and the Sailor Starlights arrive. Galaxia is glad to see Sailor Moon finally ready to fight but she explains that unlike Sailor Galaxia, her power does not come from hatred, but rather from her love and faith in her friends and their future. Sailor Galaxia shows them all the Star Seeds she has collected throughout the galaxy and says they'll have to fight to get them back. The Starlights decide to avenge their princess and entrust all their hope for the future to Sailor Moon and her Crystal. They combine all of their powers in one blast and manage to knock Galaxia away. Their joy is cut short when Galaxia reappears in a darker version of her sailor fuku. She attacks them, but Sailor Moon is convinced that this appearance is neither a real Sailor Senshi nor the real Galaxia, and she calls out to Galaxia, asking for her light. Sailor Chibi Chibi Moon answers her prayers and appears to persuade the corrupted Galaxia to give up all the fighting ("Mou Ii no (Enough)"). Galaxia refuses to listen and attacks her, but Chibi Chibi flies away.

Chibi Chibi gives her powers to Sailor Moon, allowing her to transform into Eternal Sailor Moon. The Light of Hope then transforms into the Sealing Sword. Sailor Moon concentrates all the power of the sword into one powerful attack against Galaxia, who is freed from Chaos’ influence. She thanks Sailor Moon before disappearing. Kyaosu than appears and is filled with joy at Galaxia’s defeat and his recovered freedom. He gives thanks to Sailor Moon and the Starlights. However, just as they are leaving, his voice suddenly turns very deep and he reveals that he is in fact Chaos, and that they actually just freed him from Galaxia’s body. He jumps into the Galaxy Cauldron and becomes one with it, then knocks them all down with his power. He says that now that he is free, he has become the greatest force of destruction in the galaxy. He plans to take Sailor Moon’s Silver Crystal in order to return the galaxy to its original state of complete darkness.

The Senshi feel their strength being taken away. Chaos says that the Galaxy Cauldron, the birthplace of all stars, will become their grave. However, just as the Senshi are ready to give up, Sailor Galaxia appears with her hair loose and wearing a gold and silver cape. She attacks and severely weakens Chaos. She explains that the Cauldron is the origin of all lights, and entrusts all of her hope for the future in Sailor Moon before plunging into the primordial sea of the Cauldron. Chaos then accuses Sailor Moon of murdering her siblings. He explains that all the enemies she has fought and killed in the past were all born from the Cauldron, as she was. He says that she is the light and that he is the darkness, and that the time has come for them to become one again so that he may rule the entire universe. Sailor Moon is distraught after learning this, uncertain what to fight for anymore.

She begins to hear the voices of her friends cheering her on and telling her not to give up. They all appear before her, and Sailor Mercury explains that Galaxia’s light released and guided them to her. Sailor Pluto says that no one can destroy the place where the stars are born and Sailor Mars adds that so long as this place exists, they will keep on living and that nothing can change that. They then hear the voices of Mamoru and Princess Kakyuu encouraging them all to fight, and Sailor Moon gives up all of her fear and hesitation. The Sailor Senshi are once again ready to fight to save the Galaxy ("La Fatalité Sei Senshi (The Fated Holy Soldiers)"). They unite all of their powers in one final blow and manage to finally destroy Chaos.

The victorious Sailor Senshi are amazed at the sudden flood of light. Princess Kakyuu appears and explains that they are all the stolen Sailor Crystals returning to their home planets. The Starlights wonder if it is due to the Silver Crystal's power, but Tuxedo Mask arrives and explains that it is due to the union of all the Sailor Crystals. Sailor Moon falls into the arms of her beloved, and he tells her that the reason why all of their enemies seek her power is because they really seek the feeling that she gets from being loved by him and all of her friends. Sailor Moon understands that this is also why everybody wants to be one, because that is the way they all began, and Queen Beryl and even Chaos are also part of it. She is confident that they will be able to create a future for themselves, because everyone has their own Star Seed. That is why they must keep going forward: so they can create a story of love that lasts for all eternity ("Densetsu Seitan (Legendary Birth)").

Second Stage (Fumina, Miyuki, Marina; '98-'04)

    Shin Densetsu Kourin (Beginning of the New Legend

Act 1

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/beginning_of_the_new_legend_flyer_shining_moon_pl.jpg
Somewhere, Sailor Chibi Moon is chased and attacked by Dark Moon, Lemures, and Nightmare, but she manages to fight them off and escape. In an interlude, Tuxedo Mask, King Endymion, Usagi, and Sailor Chibi Chibi Moon sing "Double Moonlight Romance".

Elsewhere, Sailor Galaxia fells Tuxedo Mask and takes his Star Seed, raising it triumphantly overhead.

Usagi stands by herself on the roof of Juuban Municipal High School in the evening. She feels like everyone is happy except her; her love, Mamoru, has gone to America to study, but hasn't written or called her. Setsuna finds her and kindly tries to console her. However, although Usagi imagines Mamoru's voice, she is still troubled ("Shadow on My Sweet Memories"). Usagi comments that Setsuna is very understanding. Setsuna, clearly nursing private feelings, tells Usagi that as long as one has a true love, one can keep living. Suddenly, falling stars pierce the night sky, and thunder crashes. Usagi and Setsuna are perturbed.

Galaxia revives Queen Beryl, the Queen of Darkness, saying that she needs her hatred and dark desire. Beryl sings about her former glory, and how she turned to rule the darkness after losing her love ("Yami no Hitsugi (Coffin of Darkness)"). King Endymion approaches Beryl, saying that he has wanted to see her, and explaining that he is the future form of the man she loves. Beryl, however, does not easily forgive him for abandoning her for Princess Serenity in the past. Endymion insists that he is now older and wiser. Galaxia shows herself and kneels before Beryl, explaining that she is the one who revived her and returned Endymion to her. She encourages Beryl to carry out her revenge against Sailor Moon and take back her planet. Beryl, now convinced of Galaxia and Endymion's sincerity, eagerly agrees. Galaxia also presents Beryl with three servants: the Amazon Trio.

In the school courtyard, Usagi and her friends (Ami, Rei, Makoto, Minako, Haruka, and Michiru) exercise, with the enthusiasm of youth ("Seishun no Shoumi Kigen (Time to Enjoy Our Youth)"). Their new P.E. teacher, Mantle Chiba (actually Endymion), arrives to encourage them. Usagi is shocked by how similar he looks to Mamoru, but the others tell her that the resemblance is all in her head. Mantle tries to convince everyone to practice riding unicycles, but they think that is not very cool. Chibi Chibi and a young clown ride in on unicycles of their own. The clown tries to convey why she is there through charades, but things are only cleared up when Hotaru arrives with a flier for the Dead Moon Circus from the Amazon, which is opening in town tomorrow. The crack of a whip heralds the stars of the circus, the Amazon Trio: Tiger's Eye, Hawk's Eye, and Fisheye. They introduce themselves and explain that they are looking for new stars for their show ("Amazon Kara Circus Dan ga Yatte Kita (The Circus Has Come from the Amazon)"). Everyone is excited, and Mantle encourages his students to audition. Haruka and Michiru, however, think the situation is suspicious, and decline to participate.

It starts to rain, and everyone is driven inside. The Amazon Trio, left alone, talk amongst themselves; they are transformed animals, and are looking for beautiful dreams to steal that will allow them to be human forever.

Galaxia and her minions sing about her efforts to destroy or conquer all the stars that stand in her way, and collect the Sailor Crystals ("Galaxia Gorgeous"). King Endymion assures Galaxia that Beryl is completely preoccupied with her revenge, and Galaxia notes that with Tuxedo Mask dead, there is no King Endymion in the future; this one is just a "puppet made from mud" that she created. She also explains that she has revived Beryl so that Sailor Saturn will reawaken. Unexpectedly, Galaxia feels a painful presence: a light that she'd thought was extinguished long ago. She orders her minions to quickly finish their attack on the planet.

The Amazon Trio meet at their circus tent and discuss their targets: the Inner Senshi, who all have beautiful dreams. They sing that it does not matter who they serve, as long as they can search for beautiful dreams to become human ("Amazon Trio no Yume Sagashi (The Amazon Trio's Search for Dreams)"). They and their Pierrot minions practice their show. Beryl contacts them by cell phone and tells them not to harm the Moon Princess, because that is her grudge to settle.

Mantle Chiba leads Usagi, Ami, Rei, Makoto, and Minako into the tent, but strangely, the performers are not anywhere to be found, and Mantle soon disappears as well. As the Amazon Trio watch from the shadows, Rei senses a presence that feels like animals. Everyone is creeped out and decides to leave, but suddenly the lights go out and evil laughter is heard. When light returns, Ami, Rei, Makoto, and Minako find themselves strapped to the walls. The Amazon Trio and their allies emerge. They welcome the Senshi to their dark dream, which is inescapable ("Muma no Odori (Nightmares' Dance)"). The Inner Senshi are freed, but fall under the influence of the Dead Moon Circus and Queen Beryl, who stops by briefly to look over their catch.

Afterwards, the Amazon Trio examine their captives' dreams. Although the dreams of the Inner Senshi are beautiful, none of them is the one they need. As they prepare to look inside Usagi's dream, they are interrupted by Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune, who attack. They in turn are driven back when Queen Beryl returns. Beryl summons the captured Usagi and magically restores her memories of the past: how she stole Beryl's fiancee, Prince Endymion, and broke the law that the Earth and Moon people should never associate. This, Beryl explains, is why the Earth and Moon warred, why she killed Endymion as he protected the princess, and why Beryl was burned by the light and sealed in the darkness. Usagi is horrified to remember such things.

Beryl attacks Usagi, and Uranus and Neptune try futilely to protect her. Her attack is halted by Sailor Pluto, who sings of her own loneliness at the Space-Time Door ("Stay Alone"). She accuses Beryl of being a weak person, but also claims to understand her. Usagi apologizes if any of Beryl's pain is her fault and says that if Mamoru loved someone else, it would be as painful as death, but she would let him go because she loves him. Pluto explains that she admires that in Usagi, and confesses her love for the future King Endymion.

Beryl is not comforted by sympathy, and adds that she especially hates princesses like Usagi. She reveals that she has captured the Inner Senshi, and tells Usagi to come to the place where they had their last battle if she wants them back. Usagi does not know where that is, and Beryl says to ask Pluto. Beryl unleashes her power and disappears, recklessly hurting the Amazon Trio in the backlash and leaving them behind. However, nobody was severely wounded, and Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto confront the Amazon Trio, who want to see their dreams as well. They summon their servants, who significantly outnumber the Senshi.

A rose interrupts the faceoff, and Tuxedo Mask appears, singing about his mission ("Tuxedo Mission"). King Endymion confronts him, and they fight. Endymion uses his power to strike down his opponent, and holds his cane to Tuxedo Mask's throat. Beryl announces that Endymion is in her hands, and now, so is Tuxedo Mask; Endymion escapes with him, reminding Usagi to come to the "place of memories".

Afterwards, the sky goes dark; Pluto says that the Space-Time Door is opening. Sailor Chibi Moon emerges, announcing that in the 30th Century, her papa suddenly disappeared. Suddenly, Sailor Saturn arrives, telling Usagi to take "Small Lady" and escape, because the Outer Senshi will deal with this. The four are disturbed that the situation is dire enough for Saturn to awaken, and Saturn confirms that the Earth, Moon, and entire Solar System are in danger of destruction. They resolve to stop the danger and protect their princess ("Kokoro Tabanete Makin' for the Right (Bundle the Heart, Makin' for the Right)"). They teleport away.

Somewhere cold, Beryl is waiting with Tuxedo Mask and King Endymion. A little ways away, Sailor Chi, Sailor Phi, and Sailor Theta laugh quietly to themselves about how Galaxia is fooling everyone, including Beryl: both Tuxedo Mask and King Endymion are only Galaxia's puppets. The Amazon Trio rejoin the group, and Beryl commands all assembled to kill all their enemies in the next fight. The four Inner Senshi, now evil, join the group as well and condescendingly lord over the Amazon Trio. The Outer Senshi break into the scene and attack, scattering the enemies. The Amazon Trio fight back, but their power is reflected by Saturn. The Senshi demand the return of their Prince, but are shocked when Tuxedo Mask returns leading the former Inner Senshi, who declare their changed loyalties. Beryl intends to forcefully recruit the Outer Senshi, too.

Sailor Chibi Moon suddenly runs in and insultingly tells Beryl that King Endymion is not the real thing. Sailor Moon accompanies her - she still did not remember the location Beryl was talking about, but was led there by a mysterious light. They overcome Queen Beryl's power and put her to sleep without hurting her. Tuxedo Mask claims that he was freed by this as well, and he rejoins Moon. Ami, Rei, Makoto, and Minako, however, are still brainwashed; they confront Sailor Moon and declare that they are tired of subserviently coddling her. Sailor Moon is going to try to free them, but Sailor Galaxia intervenes and knocks them away, commenting that Queen Beryl was sloppy. She introduces herself, and smites all the Sailor Senshi when they try to fight against her. She is about to take their Star Seeds when a light drives her away - the same light that led Usagi to the location. It quickly departs, but Sailor Chibi Moon runs after it, saying that she will discover what it is. The Outer Senshi run after her.

Sailor Moon resolves to save her friends. Tuxedo Mask makes her promise to go on even if he disappears. Usagi adds that until then, their love will go on. Meanwhile, elsewhere, the assembled dark forces and the Outer Senshi reaffirm their own missions - everyone has their own dreams ("Triple Dreams '98"). At the end, Sailor Chibi Chibi Moon appears and breaks the curse on the Inner Senshi.

Act 2

Queen Beryl, flanked by Tuxedo Mask and Endymion, sings about her intention to smash the light; meanwhile, Galaxia sings about her disdain for Queen Beryl, and how she is only using her for her own ends ("Yami koso Utsukushii ~Galaxia no Iradachi~ (Darkness Is So Beautiful ~Galaxia's Impatience~)"). Galaxia commands Beryl to hurry and go slaughter everyone, taking their Star Seeds - with the Light of Hope around, they can waste no time. The Amazon Trio assure Galaxia that they have a two-part plan. However, everyone wants to know who Chibi Chibi is, if she scares Galaxia so much. Galaxia refuses to tell them and leaves, frustrating the Amazon Trio to no end. Beryl and her two beaus depart. The Trio discuss their plan to serve Galaxia so she will give them people with beautiful dreams, but then they realize that Chibi Chibi herself might be the perfect target for them. They resolve not to lose.

Ginga TV is hosting a high school quiz show which is being broadcast across the country, and Usagi and the rest of the Sailor Team are all competing in it. The five girls introduce themselves, as do the hosts, Toranosuke Moribashi (Tiger's Eye) and assistant Youko Uonome (Fish Eye in drag). They also introduce a special guest, rock artist Hikari Toriatama (Hawk's Eye).

The game is about international facts. Only one contestant will be eliminated, and the others will win a trip to Hawaii. However, when anyone guesses a question correctly, golden bracelets appear on their upper arms, and they become evil. This happens to everyone except Usagi, who fails so much that her podium is lowered underneath the set. The Amazon Trio are happy - now that the four girls are in their clutches again, they will use them as bait to draw out Chibi Chibi and take her dreams. They wonder why they have no dreams of their own.

Elsewhere, Chibiusa is upset because the 20th century is such a terrible state, and she resolves to save the 30th century timeline ("Chibi-Usa no Kokoroiki (Chibi-Usa's Mood)").

After the show, Usagi emerges from Ginga TV, upset that she was the only one dropped. She assumes the others are off to Hawaii by now. Chibiusa tells Usagi that she followed the light, and it disappeared in the TV station; the fact that this quiz show was happening here as well is suspicious. Haruka, Michiru, and Hotaru arrive to confirm those suspicions, saying that those who won the quiz show were brainwashed. Setsuna also says that there is a hole in time and space at the TV station - it is absorbing energy and getting bigger, and will destroy the city if left unchecked. They all resolve to sneak into the station and put a stop to the situation ("Tekichi wa Ginga TV Kyoku! (The Enemy's Territory is the Ginga TV Station!)").

In the TV station, Fish Eye wants to talk to King Endymion about something, but Queen Beryl interrupts at an inconvenient moment. Fish Eye expresses his concern that Beryl is being deceived by Galaxia. He is afraid that if the Earth is destroyed, he will never see any dreams. Tiger's Eye and Hawk's Eye drag Fish Eye away, and Beryl assures him that Galaxia promised to leave her the Earth.

The Outer Senshi, Usagi, and Chibiusa emerge, having overheard the previous conversation. However, the Inner Senshi, now Galaxia's troops, find and attack them. Haruka is about to transform, but Usagi says not to fight them. Instead, she tries to plead with her friends. The Amazon Trio enter, telling Usagi that this time, it is useless - the nightmare goes too deep. Usagi asks why they have to do such cruel things, and the Amazon Trio explains that they are doing it to get dreams of their own. Usagi calls out for Chibi Chibi to lend her her light again so that she can save her friends, but nothing happens. Galaxia enters and commands the Inner Senshi to take the others' Star Seeds. Instead, though, they turn and unleash their attacks on Galaxia. This time, they resisted the influence and were only playing along. Unfortunately, Galaxia cannot be hurt by her own Star Seed-stealing bracelets, because she discarded her Star Seed long ago.

The Light of Hope appears again, but this time, Galaxia is prepared for it. She responds by manipulating space and time.

Usagi and Chibiusa find themselves elsewhere. Queen Beryl is waiting for them. Usagi tries to convince her that she is only being used, and that Galaxia had Beryl awaken Saturn hoping that the Earth would be destroyed in the process. However, King Endymion shows up, telling Beryl to hurry up and kill the two of them. Chibiusa accuses him of being a fake again, and convinces the uncertain Beryl by demonstrating that "Endymion" doesn't even know his wedding anniversary date.

The ruse foiled, Galaxia appears holding the Star Seed of Earth, revealing that she killed Tuxedo Mask, and that King Endymion and Tuxedo Mask are just her mud puppets with no minds of their own. Beryl, Usagi, and Chibi-Usa are all heartbroken. Usagi pleads with Galaxia to give the Star Seed back, but Galaxia attacks her in response. Chibiusa throws herself in the way of the attack and saves Usagi. Before she dies, she makes Usagi promise to save the future, and admits that her dream is to be a strong Senshi like Sailor Moon. Galaxia and her allies (including a very quiet Queen Beryl) teleport away.

Elsewhere, the four Inner Senshi, Uranus, and Neptune face off against the Amazon Trio. Galaxia enters, and even the Senshi's combined powers are unable to penetrate her defenses. She counterattacks, wounding them all severely, but they refuse to join her forces. They explain that Sailor Moon is the symbol of their dreams, and that they will fight for her to the end. Galaxia, done playing around, strikes them all down just as Sailor Moon arrives to witness it. Dying, Moon's friends explain that they have no regrets ("Sorezore no Elegy (Each One's Elegy)"). Galaxia finishes them off during their goodbyes, then vanishes again. Moon is not sure she can go on without them, but Sailor Pluto and Sailor Saturn arrive and tell her to persevere and carry on her friends' dreams.

Sailor Pluto and Sailor Saturn try to fight Galaxia, but she beats them as well. Her minions move to finish them, but they are distracted by Beryl, who confronts Galaxia. Galaxia freely admits to her manipulation of Beryl, but offers her the choice of true subservience or death. Beryl chooses the latter, but resolves that she will take Galaxia with her. In response, Sailor Phi, Sailor Chi, and Sailor Theta attack Beryl, but she overpowers them. They plead to Galaxia for help, but instead she finishes them off, saying that they are shamefully weak. Then Galaxia attacks Beryl herself, and, saying that she will give her a special death, summons the Amazon Trio to deliver the finishing blow. They are sorry, but if they do not do this, they will never become human. Surprisingly, Beryl is protected by Sailor Saturn and Sailor Pluto. Beryl asks why, and Pluto explains that they are the same in their unrequited love. Beryl's love, however, has turned to hatred ("Onna no Ronsou (The Women's Dispute)"). Saturn allows Beryl to escape through the Space-Time Door.

Galaxia returns, summons Sailor Moon, and kills Pluto and Saturn in front of her. She comments that it is hard to find good subordinates, but Moon tearfully tells her that they are friends. Moon appeals to Galaxia's emotions, saying that she belives this hurts her, too. This throws Galaxia off, but she tells the Amazon Trio to get her. First, however, Fish Eye wants to know why they do not have dreams. "What do you expect from animals?" asks Galaxia, in response. Irritated with them, she strikes them down and prepares to kill them. Moon tells Galaxia to stop, saying that if they understand sadness, they are not animals. Galaxia is going to return them to their true forms, but Moon pledges to protect them as well. In response, Galaxia tells them again to kill Sailor Moon if they want to remain human. Instead, they move to join Moon's side.

Beryl returns as well - with Pluto dead, there is nobody guarding the Space-Time Corridor. Galaxia asks if she returned because she was lonely, but Beryl accuses Galaxia of loneliness and unhappiness herself. In response, Galaxia excuses herself and sends out the Imperial Galactica's ultimate warriors, Tuxedo Mask and Endymion. The Amazon Trio try to fight the two men, but are knocked back. Unfortunately, even though he is a puppet, Moon cannot bring herself to fight Tuxedo Mask. Beryl is struck down, and the two men demand that Moon fight. She does not, though, and she still has faith that she will see her friends again. Endymion is going to let Moon rejoin them in death, but Beryl blocks his sword with her body, saying that she cannot let the world and universe be destroyed. "Even with nothing, I can't hate you anymore," she tells Moon, and sacrifices herself to destroy Endymion.

Tuxedo Mask declares that his goal is to make the world disappear, and confronts Moon with his sword extended. The Amazon Trio try to intervene, but Sailor Chibi Chibi Moon arrives and tells them not to interfere; the fate of the universe rests on this battle. Tuxedo Mask suggests that she die and end all the needless suffering, but Moon talks about her love of the world, and how she wants everyone back, including her Mamo-chan. He is stunned by her light, and then she goes to hug him. She tells him that she sees Mamo-chan in his eyes. King Endymion's echoing voice talks about how killing and punishment will not stop the threat to the life of the universe - only courage and love will. Tuxedo Mask also tells Moon not to lose, then falls, lifeless.

Sailor Chibi Chibi Moon, the Light of Hope, teleports Sailor Moon and the Amazon Trio to the birthplace and graveyard of the stars, the Galaxy Cauldron. She narrates how Chaos was born from the Galaxy Cauldron with the rest of the galaxy, and spawned evil that defeated the Sailor Senshi one by one, until Sailor Galaxia challenged it. However, no matter how many times they fought, Chaos revived itself again and again, so she trapped it in her own body. Unfortunately, her body started to be corrupted, so she ejected her own Star Seed and sent it to the other side of the galaxy. Chibi Chibi is the personification of that Star Seed.

At the Galaxy Cauldron, Galaxia is upset that Chibi Chibi has awakened. Sailor Moon confronts her, full of power, but it is not because she hates Galaxia - it is because she has hope for a future full of love. Galaxia shows Moon her collection of Star Seeds, and demands that she fight for them. Determined, Moon agrees, and the Amazon Trio back her up, saying the Sailor Senshi have shown them the power of courage. Galaxia unleashes her power on the four, but her attack is broken by Chibi Chibi, who tells Galaxia it is all right, and she does not have to fight anymore ("Mou Ii no"). Galaxia, panicked, tells her to stay away, but Chibi Chibi glows brightly and Galaxia falls back before her. Sailor Moon transforms into Eternal Sailor Moon and uses her power to return Chibi Chibi to Galaxia's body.

Unfortunately, this has the side effect of releasing Chaos. It explains that it gave birth to stars and rules the Galaxy's darkness. It wants Sailor Moon's Silver Crystal, with which it will return the universe to its original, primordial state and rule it. The newly purified Sailor Galaxia intervenes and attacks Chaos. She thanks Moon for saving her, but says that now she is returning to the sea of space. She enters the Galaxy Cauldron, the Sealing Sword in hand. The Amazon Trio follow her, hoping that one day they will eventually be reborn.

Chaos accuses Moon of murdering her siblings, born from the same cosmic sea as her: the entities of darkness that sought out the light of her Silver Crystal. Moon is distressed, and uncertain what she is fighting for. However, she hears her friends' voices encouraging her, followed soon by the Inner and Outer Senshi themselves, alive; Galaxia sacrificed herself in order to revive their Star Seeds. Eternal Sailor Moon no longer hesitates. Together, the nine Senshi fight Chaos and three minions that it spawns ("La Soldier"). Sailor Moon uses Silver Moon Crystal Eternal Power, then combines her power with the other Solar System Senshi to defeat Chaos using Sailor Planet Super Attack.

Afterwards, the power of the Silver Crystal causes the Sailor Crystals of all the Sailor Senshi return to their original forms and scatter throughout the universe - in time, all the planets will be revived. The real Tuxedo Mask is revived as well, and he sings about how only love has this kind of power ("Miracle Twister"). King Endymion and Sailor Chibi Moon appear, and the Amazon Trio are reborn as well, presumably as humans with dreams. Tuxedo Mask asks if Moon understands why all her enemies were after her and the Silver Crystal, and says it is because of her love. Moon understands - everyone is a lonely star, and seek each other wishing to be one. She thinks of this as a new beginning, and promises to work towards a bright future ("Everlasting Moonlight").

    Kaguya Shima Densetsu (Legend of Kaguya Island

Act 1

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kaguya_front.jpg
As the overture plays, a male voice narrates a text scroll. In 3,000 B.C., Dark Plasman, the personification of the comet Coatl, appeared in the Solar System. He wanted to become a planet, so he destroyed asteroids and attacked the Earth, causing natural disasters. The Earth empire of Artuka borrowed the power of the Silver Crystal in order to change the Earth's orbit. This caused a great flood, which destroyed their civilization. Now, 5,000 years later, Dark Plasman has reappeared on the other side of the Solar System.

Dark Plasman and his minions (Dark Menorah, Leah Ruby, Bilhah Emerald, and Zilpah Sapphire) have designs on the planet Earth ("Overture ~Suisei Coatl no Hibou~ (The Comet Coatl's Inordinate Ambition)"). Dark Plasman sends Leah Ruby to lure the Sailor Senshi onto a certain island before singing about his desire to destroy the Earth and take its place in the Solar System.

Leah Ruby heads to Azabu Juuban High School in order to lay the trap ("Ruby no Aka ~Yume wo Kaimasu Shima no Tabi~ (The Red of a Ruby ~An Island Trip to Buy Our Dreams)"). After school, the Inner Senshi are excited for their spring break. They have plans to leave tomorrow morning on a trip to Kaguya Island. They are joined by the Outer Senshi and Mamoru. Leah Ruby shows up as a tour guide and talks up how fun Kaguya Island will be. Mamoru thinks that it sounds too good to be true. Conveniently, the trip is free of charge. Leah Ruby tells everyone to meet at 6 AM the next morning so that they can arrive on Kaguya Island by boat before sunset. Everyone goes their separate ways: the Senshi and Mamoru to pack, and Leah Ruby to prepare the boat.

As Leah leaves, a mysterious person shows up and identifies her as one of Dark Plasman's minions. Her name is Loof Merrow and she has also been waiting 5,000 years. She is joined by Cern, Serpen, and Kraken, and they plot to attack the boat so that it doesn't reach the island ("Onna Kaizoku no Sakusen (The Female Pirate's Strategy)"). Specifically, they intend to attack the boat and sink it in the Loof Triangle.

The next morning, everyone is on the boat headed for Kaguya Island. Usagi is fast asleep on deck. Ami mentions that she was able to see falling stars while it was still dark outside, including one that came awfully close. Meanwhile, Usagi keeps getting woken up and going back to sleep. Eventually, she stays awake and shares the dream she had, in which she found a whole mountain of jewels. Mamoru questions if the jewels are really so important. Usagi reassures him that he's still more important, but still, the jewel hunt is exciting to the group ("Ai Yori Houseki Kaguya Shima (Jewels Over Love, Kaguya Island)"). Leah Ruby comes out on deck and explains that Kaguya Island is the legendary moon princess Kaguya's island. She narrates a legend about the moon princess and the prince of Earth being separated when the moon princess left, and the princess's tears turning into jewels. Afterward, Mamoru suggests planning for the upcoming treasure hunt in the cabins, since he feels like he's being watched.

Once the deck hands (really Cern and Serpen in disguise) are alone, Loof Merrow tells them to stop messing around and force the Senshi to transform so that they can figure out who has the Silver Crystal and take it. Loof summons a storm in order to sink the ship. The Inner Senshi huddle in the cabins, and Rei senses something unearthly about the storm. The jewel trio are confused at what is happening. Cern and Serpen appear in monster form on deck, and the Outer Senshi arrive to fight them off. They are followed shortly thereafter by the Inner Senshi, then Sailor Moon. Loof Merrow appears and introduces herself. Tuxedo Kamen enters, and Loof makes the storm stronger. Dark Plasman also appears, and he and Loof briefly struggle before he summons an even larger wave to carry the ship to Kaguya Island ("Arashi no Naka no Zenshousen (Skirmish in a Storm)"). Loof declares that she will return for the Silver Crystal before fleeing.

On the island, three cats wearing jewels emerge as the storm dissipates. They are surprised by the ship and humans, since no one has been on this island in many years ("Natsukashii no wa Naze?"). They scamper away when they hear people coming.

The Senshi regroup on the beach and notice that their transformations have reverted. Rei senses a tremendous amount of evil energy on the island. Usagi enters last, struggling with being "attacked" by kelp. The "tour guides" (the jewel trio and Dark Menorah in disguise) enter and welcome everyone to the island. Leah is eager to get everyone started on the treasure hunt, and the four sing a welcome song ("Welcome Hare Hare Hire Hare"). The Senshi and Dark Menorah head off on the treasure hunt. Now alone, the jewel trio strategize. Zilpah notes that Mamoru is the most suspicious of everything going on. They then reminisce about the last time they were on the island, and Leah expresses sadness over what happened 5,000 years ago ("5000-nen Kaguya Shima (5,000 Years Kaguya Shima)").

Usagi and Mamoru explore a cave. Mamoru is startled by bats and is jumpy afterward, but he tries to play it cool. He wants to leave, but Usagi refuses to until she finds some jewels. She sees some and goes to examine them. Mamoru has a bad feeling of being watched. They leave once Usagi picks up the small handful of jewels. Outside, Usagi says that she can see the moon. Mamoru mentions that the Earth and Moon used to move together - but it's just a theory. With their combined cycles, the year would have been 364 days long, but there are 365. Mamoru wonders if it was due to a great shock such as, say, a flood, and if something happened between the Earth and Moon. Usagi replies that the Earth and Moon are connected, just like them. The two then proceed to sweet-talk each other ("You're My Jewelry").

Chibi-Usa interrupts by falling from the sky. Chibi-Usa is fed up after having a fight with her mother, and has run away from home ("Chibi-Usa no Hanran (Chibi-Usa's Rebellion)"). Usagi bristles because they're not in a position to take care of her, but she sympathizes with Chibi-Usa when she describes what Neo-Queen Serenity has been doing that made her so mad (taking away her video games and manga, etc.). The cats enter and meow loudly. Chibi-Usa can understand them, and tells Usagi that they want her to give the jewels back. Usagi doesn't believe her. The rest of the Inner Senshi enter and are surprised to see Chibi-Usa there as well.

Cern, Serpen, and Kraken show up and demand that the group hand something over. Everyone thinks that they're part of the attraction, which is not helped by the pirate trio being silly. They figure out that something is amiss when Ami realizes that Kraken has a real sword. Loof enters, and everyone attempts to transform, only to realize that they can't. Loof orders Cern, Serpen, and Kraken to attack, but they goof around instead, much to her frustration. The jewel trio and Dark Menorah enter to drive them off, and a fight ensues. Suddenly, a masked man appears. He calls himself Space Knight, and proceeds to defend Usagi from both groups ("I Do Justice"). After the battle, he helps Loof up and tells her not to push herself too hard before leaving. The jewel trio re-enter, attack, and confirms that Dark Plasman has entered the Solar System.

Just as they attack again, Hotaru enters in a long layered kimono. She tells the jewels to go back to their star, tells them that hate is a waste of time, and that their aims are unreasonable ("Hitosuji no Hikari no Kokoro ~Yabou no Kao~ (The Heart of a Ray of Light ~The Face of Ambition~)"). Dark Plasman appears and sings that the Earth is now within his reach, but he is shaken as he recognizes Usagi as Princess Moon.

Act 2

Dark Plasman is concerned by Princess Moon's appearance. The jewel trio tells him that the Dark Crystals they left on the island have matured, and the Senshi's ability to transform has been sealed. Still, Dark Plasman is not pleased with his subordinates' failure to take the Silver Crystal. They sing about their determination to not be humiliated again in their quest to become a star ("Star Glory"). Dark Plasman also reminisces about Princess Moon's involvement in the events 5,000 years ago. He considers her an enemy, yet he gravitates toward her and refers to her as "[his] goddess".

On the island, the Inner Senshi are growing anxious ("Hyouchaku Shita Keredo... (We Washed Ashore, But...)"). They're hungry, they have no way home, and no powers. Usagi enters with a lot of food - enough to feed everyone! She claims that she collected all of the food - the fish were even jumping out of the water ("Usagi Papparanpapaa")! She's called out on that because the food includes freshly sliced sashimi, fully cooked food, and even sauces. Setsuna catches sight of King Endymion in an apron hiding nearby, but keeps quiet as he goes off to stay hidden.

Usagi shows off the jewels that she found in the cave while Mamoru wants everyone to think about how to get off of the island. The cats show up again to ask for their jewels back. Usagi thinks that Chibi-Usa just wants the jewels for herself, and they quarrel for a bit. The Senshi split up to find shelter, firewood, and a way to send an SOS. Everyone agrees to meet at the beach at sunset. Chibi-Usa stays behind with the cats. The cats explain that they have been waiting for their mothers on this island for thousands of years. Their guardian is someone named "Kon", who is the one who possessed Hotaru. The cats are mostly hopeful, though Cook is getting impatient. Chibi-Usa tells them that mothers are not as great as they're making them out to be because all mothers do is scold their kids ("Okaa-san te Nan Darou? (What's a 'Mother'?)"). The cats don't know what it means to be scolded, and they go on to reminisce about what little they remember of their mothers. The jewels that they wore were their mothers' crystallized tears. Chibi-Usa wonders if a "mother" is such a good thing after all. From afar, King Endymion sings about mothers needing to scold their children when they have been bad, and that a mother is someone who wishes for her children's happiness. After learning what the gems are, Chibi-Usa tells the cats that Usagi will definitely give them back. As thanks, the cats take her around the island.

King Endymion comes out from hiding. Setsuna arrives and recognizes that he brought everyone food. She figured that he would come to keep an eye on Chibi-Usa. They talk briefly about Chibi-Usa and Neo-Queen Serenity's fight, and Setsuna explains the present situation to Endymion. Endymion remembers something about the island from the archives, but they are interrupted when the cats enter again. It seems that something has happened to Chibi-Usa.

Elsewhere, Loof is upset with the rest of the pirates. She seems to be in some kind of pain, but they have no idea what is wrong with her. She describes various symptoms of lovesickness, but the best diagnosis they can come up with is "heartburn", so Cern, Serpen, and Kraken leave to find her some medicine. Loof sings about her loneliness and budding feelings of affection for Space Knight ("Just Love Wasurerarenai (Just Love, Can't Forget)").

Space Knight and Setsuna enter, in a fight with Dark Menorah. Loof intervenes by shooting Menorah with her sword/gun. As Menorah escapes, Space Knight yells after her to return Small Lady. Loof orders Cern, Serpen, and Kraken to go after her and find where they have imprisoned Chibi-Usa. Space Knight thanks her, and she calls it repayment for the last battle. He's hurt, so she helps him find a place to rest. He recognizes the crest that she wears as the symbol of a princess. Loof properly introduces herself to him and begins to tell him about what happened to the Artuka Empire and its princess.

The Senshi look for Chibi-Usa and Setsuna in a bamboo forest, near a dilapidated house. The kittens find them, and Usagi gives their jewels back. They call to Kon, who introduces herself as the collected feelings of stars destroyed by Coatl. She gives the cats the ability to communicate with the Senshi. The cats introduce themselves, and Kon informs the group that they were children turned into cats so that no one would bother them.

The jewel trio does not seem to have been able to find who they were looking for - their children. Leah is insistent that they must have survived, but Bilhah is less optimistic.

Loof explains that there was a temple in the Artuka Empire that governed the order of the Solar System. Dark Plasman cast dark crystals that it had brought with it into the temple. Three landed in the temple, but the fourth missed (or was otherwise unaccounted for). Princess Moon used the temple's power to change the Earth's orbit, placing the Moon between it and Coatl. The resulting tidal disruptions fought off Coatl, but the resulting earthquakes and tsunami sank the Artuka Empire. Only one part of the temple remains on Kaguya Island.

Kon explains that the dark crystals will have their full power when all four are together. Due to humanity's damage to the planet, the three dark crystals have matured and drawn Coatl to Earth once more. The Senshi can't transform because of those crystals - they have sealed their powers away. The cats inform the Senshi that Chibi-Usa was imprisoned in the temple, and everyone wants to rush off to find her, but Haruka points out that they can't transform. Ion says that there is a way, since the Princess Moon who saved the Earth in the past was Usagi's ancestor. Dark Plasman appears. Kon declares that this island needs a new Kaguya legend. Everyone converges on the temple.

In the temple, Dark Menorah is guarding the bound Chibi-Usa. The jewel trio return and announce that Plasman is descending. Cern, Serpen, and Kraken enter, hot on their heels, followed by Setsuna. Cern, Serpen, and Kraken decide to assist her by fighting off the jewel trio. Dark Plasman enters and attacks the pirate trio. Loof and a cloaked King Endymion enter, followed by the Senshi and cats. King Endymion informs everyone that Loof is the princess of Artuka. Dark Plasman tries to attack, but King Endymion blocks his plasma attack and reveals himself as the King of Earth of the 30th Century. Dark Menorah is revealed to have the fourth dark crystal within her body. Loof tells everyone to run away, since casting the last crystal into the foundation of the temple will cause serious damage. Cern, Serpen, and Kraken are fatally injured. Just before he dies, Serpen reveals that they were androids created to protect Loof.

Loof cuts off her ponytail and reveals that the way to break the dark crystals' seal on the Senshi's power is to use the sword/gun/key of the Artuka royal family. She climbs the steps to the door and thanks King Endymion before turning the key, sacrificing her life in the process. The Senshi transform and fight Coatl's personifications ("Solar Miracle, Make-Up!"). King Endymion realizes that the comet was in two pieces. Dark Plasman remarks that it's too late, and demands the Silver Crystal.

The cats run to defend Chibi-Usa, but are wounded by Dark Plasman's attack. Their jewels shine, and the jewel trio recognize them as theirs. Dark Plasman calls them "trash" that he cast off 5,000 years ago - the cats are, in fact, the jewel trio's long-lost children. Kon speaks through Saturn and explains the cats' appearance and their 5,000-year wait to their mothers. The mothers and children finally meet and embrace as the cats near death ("Yatto Aeta Ne (At Last, We Met)"). After the cats die, Dark Plasman commands the jewel trio to attack, but in their grief, they turn against him. Their ambitions mean nothing now that their children are dead. Dark Plasman defeats them in a single blow, and they disappear.

Sailor Moon, now upset, rebukes Dark Plasman, saying that he doesn't have it in him to become a star. Dark Plasman is frustrated at not having been chosen, and the Senshi each tell him exactly why that is. Dark Menorah grabs Sailor Moon and restrains her. Dark Plasman wants the Senshi to be bitter and use the power of hate. Yet, Sailor Moon pities him. Tuxedo Mask enters and attacks Dark Plasman alongside King Endymion, singing about the power of love and having faith in others ("And Believe In All"). Saturn uses Silent Wall, and Dark Menorah disappears.

The comet draws closer still. So long as Dark Plasman is on Earth, the comet's trajectory will not change. Chibi-Usa asks Kon to lend them her power. Kon does so, and gives Sailor Moon her power, allowing her to transform into Eternal Sailor Moon for the final battle ("LINK"). Dark Plasman is finally defeated, and the comet disappears. The Senshi sing about everyone being loved by someone ("Minna Dareka ni Aisarete (Everyone Is Loved by Someone)"). The jewel trio and the kittens are revived and reunited, and they plan to travel together from now on. Chibi-Usa says that she will properly apologize to her mother.

Changes made in the Kaiteiban:

  • Neo-Queen Serenity narrates some of the backstory before the Overture and King Endymion's narration begins.
  • The story is set in summer, rather than spring. There are a few swimsuit-related gags at the beginning.

  • There is an added scene with Chibi-Usa, Neo-Queen Serenity, and King Endymion showing the argument that led Chibi-Usa to run away from home.
  • Leah's storytelling scene on the boat is expanded, and she tells a different story (it resembles Tsuru no Ongaeshi, "The Crane's Return of a Favor"). Bilhah and Zilpah also join in to act out the story.
  • There are "waves" during the storm scene, and Loof summons a giant sea serpent as well as sending all three of the pirates in monster form to attack. Mamoru also does his best to fight them before the Outer Senshi enter.

  • There are references to the other jewel hunting teams.
  • The cats briefly pop out from their hiding place when Usagi and Rei find their jewels.
  • Team Ami has some comedy with the disguised pirates. Loof runs off, and the others explain her away as someone who's part of the tour attractions.
    • Following this, Loof gives the pirate trio orders to make sure that they don't get to the temple, which is likely where Plasman wants to trap the Senshi.
  • Usagi and Mamoru's conversation about the number of days in the year is replaced with a conversation about why women love jewels.
  • Usagi and Mamoru manage to kiss before they're interrupted and teased by Team Setsuna.
  • The Kaiteiban introduces a subplot about a mysterious illness spreading among the main characters (except Usagi, Mamoru, and Chibi-Usa).
  • Space Knight's exchange with Bilhah is slightly changed. He uses "I Do Justice" as an answer when she asks what his goal is.

  • Mamoru explains that they found the food and took it.
  • King Endymion surreptitiously hands more food to Mamoru.
  • Chibi-Usa talks about parents more with the cats - she also mentions her father, and talks about adults being self-centered before "Okaa-san te Nan Darou?"

  • During the "diagnosis" scene, Cern, Serpen, and Kraken yell "Moon Spiral Heart Attack!".
  • Space Knight, Setsuna, and Mamoru appear at the end of "Just Love Wasurarenai". Dark Menorah appears after Setsuna and Mamoru leave, and admits that they're using Chibi-Usa to draw out Princess Moon. She also reveals the Dark Crystal in her chest in this battle.
  • Space Knight refers to Small Lady as his daughter, and Loof acknowledges it.
  • Loof Merrow is rendered more Adorkable by her crush.

  • Usagi, Rei, and Minako give the jewels back to the cats.
  • The cats recognize the Dark Illness and go to the temple for medicinal plants.
  • Loof explains that there was an outbreak of illness after the comet appeared, and that the holder of the Silver Crystal was unaffected. The illness is the reason for the island staying uninhabited.
  • It's explained that there was a crystal (the Artuka Crystal) governing the order of the Solar System in the temple. Loof made her bullets out of crystal shards.

  • The cats have seeds of the final dark crystal within them. The jewel trio hesitate to cut them open when they realize that they're their children.
  • Tuxedo Mask gives the silver moss to the Senshi at the beginning of "And Believe In All". The Senshi sing harmony during the chorus. King Endymion also sings with Tuxedo Mask. Dark Plasman and Dark Menorah are defeated at the end of the number.
  • The Eternal Sailor Moon transformation happens with a stand-in at the beginning of "LINK".
  • The attack at the end of "LINK" is used to turn the comet away instead of destroying it because it's a friend. Sailor Moon wants Coatl to have hope.
  • Sailor Moon uses the Silver Crystal to bring back Loof Merrow for "Minna Dareka ni Aisarete", and she appears in full princess attire. Sailor Moon extends her hand to Loof, and they walk forward hand-in-hand.
  • The jewel trio and their children emerge from the dark crystals when they are revived. The children are no longer cats, and are wearing outfits that complement their mothers'.
  • There is no additional dialogue during "Minna Dareka ni Aisarete".
    Shin - Henshin - Super Senshi e no Michi ~Last Dracul Jokyoku~ (New - Transformation - The Path to Being a Super Senshi ~Last Dracul Overture~

Act 1

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lastdracul_front.jpg
Usagi prepares for her date with Mamoru the next day before going to bed, but her sleep is troubled. Her friends appear before her one by one, delivering dire warnings about a new enemy on its way. A woman named Death Lamia and her Death Nightmares appear and introduce themselves as the ones showing her this nightmare. Lamia tells Usagi that if she transforms, disasters will occur. Sailor Mars, Sailor Venus, and Sailor Jupiter tell Usagi that it is time for them to return to their respective planets. Ami also emerges carrying luggage and also tells Usagi that it is time for them to part. Sailor Saturn appears and says that the "phantom planet" is coming. Haruka and Michiru, dressed in dark robes, warn of the beings of darkness like themselves, for they are now Undead. The dark figure of Count Dracul comes to Michiru and bites her neck. Usagi sings about her bad dream as the Nightmares cavort around her ("An Evil Dream").

The next morning, Usagi oversleeps, and Minako, Makoto, and Rei appear and yell at her to wake up ("Wake Up! Usagi!"). Mamoru, Ami, Haruka, Michiru, and Setsuna soon join them, and they tease Usagi for oversleeping. Usagi, disturbed by her dreams the previous night, says that she hopes they will always be together. Chibiusa appears out of nowhere and rejoices at seeing Mamoru ("Matamata Chibiusa Desu (Once Again, It's Chibi-Usa)"). She presents a letter from Neo-Queen Serenity, which says that the Queen had a bad dream, and requests that everyone be careful. Chibiusa claims that she was sent back to protect Usagi, but is soon forced to admit that she wrote the letter herself. Still, she insists that her mother really did have a bad dream. Despite the warning, Usagi decides that they should forget it and go have a good time; if they don't hurry, she and Mamo-chan won't be able to ride the boats. Everyone else is a bit more worried, but follows.

Hotaru approaches her father's lab, but is intercepted by his assistant, Death Lamia, who says she cannot enter. Hotaru leaves the message that she is going to Inoshiri Shizen Park with her friends. Death Lamia and the Death Nightmares sing about what it is like to be a dream demon, and how one cannot escape from their dreams ("Muma no Odori (Nightmares' Dance)"). Professor Tomoe enters and declares that he has successfully made the Homunculus eggs. He addresses those assembled, saying that all living beings rely on their soul: a Pure Heart. Putting a flawed soul into the Homunculus eggs will result in nothing but failures, like the four Death Mannetjes, who are also present. He asks Lamia to get Pure Hearts for him. Her plan is to go after Hotaru's friends.

Suddenly, Death Vulcan's presence fills the room and explains to them that every planet has its own heart, that being the Star Seeds. He says the ideal Star Seed for their work belongs to Chibiusa, who is also with the bearer of the Silver Crystal. Vulcan's presence then fades. Tomoe calls out for Hotaru, and Lamia tells him she is at the park. Tomoe excitedly remembers a "trump card" that they can play, located in that same park. However, Death Lamia and her Death Nightmares are slightly impatient about getting the blood that Tomoe promised them. Tomoe assures them that everything will work out. After everyone else leaves, the four Mannetjes (Death Pa, Death Pi, Death Pu, and Death Pe) complain about how everyone thinks they are useless failures. They decide to try to steal Chibiusa's heart to prove their worth, and come up with a theme song for good measure.

In the park, Mamoru and Usagi float in a gondola over a lake ("Gondola no Koibito-tachi (Gondola Sweethearts)"), and Mamoru reassures Usagi that they will always be together. Usagi tries to press Mamoru for a kiss, but in the meantime another boat containing Chibiusa and Hotaru, as well as three waterfowl, have glided up near them on the lake. As they pass each other, Usagi angrily shouts at the girls for ruining her moment.

The three birds follow Chibiusa and Hotaru, as does a small boat. Suddenly, the small boat stands up, and it and the birds fall upon Chibiusa and Hotaru, revealing themselves to be the four Mannetjes in disguise. They freeze the lake so it can be stood upon, and Mamoru and Usagi jump out of their boat, but Usagi slips on the ice. The Mannetjes seize Chibiusa, but a rose strikes; the Mannetjes leap away and Chibiusa flees to the side of Tuxedo Mask, who has just arrived on the scene. The Mannetjes attack him, but he fights them off easily and they retreat. The others run up to the scene and Usagi admits that she did not transform because of her bad dream. Everyone is concerned, but a thunderstorm arrives, prompting them to leave.

The Mannetjes return to the lab and find it empty. They lament over how badly they screwed up, but quickly distract themselves by dancing. Professor Tomoe enters. He is annoyed with the Mannetjes, but admits that as their "parent" he should take responsibility for them. They all beg him to give them Chibiusa's Star Seed if they manage to capture her, so they can become perfect humans. He agrees, but warns them that if they fail, they are going back into the Samael Flasks. Done dealing with his creations, Tomoe says that it is time for him to pay a visit to an old friend: Count Dracul.

In the darkness, the Count rises from his coffin, smelling Professor Tomoe, who reveals himself. Dracul seems to hold Tomoe in contempt, but Tomoe seems unaffected and asks for a favor. Dracul offers to do a magic act. Tomoe asks Dracul what he would do if he could escape his destiny as an Undead creature, and Dracul says he does not care. Tomoe does not believe him and, as they hear the door open, he says he will soon meet their targets. He offers Dracul two Death Nightmare servants as gifts and departs.

The lights come up. The Inner Senshi, Mamoru, Hotaru, and Chibiusa run into the mansion, having fled for cover from the storm. Inside the castle-like mansion they find a stage and a beautiful white dress on a stand. Everyone is surprised that they've never heard of this place. Rei senses something bad, but is distracted when Dracul walks in, carrying Chibiusa, who had gone exploring. He introduces himself as Dracul the Magician, and offers to distract them with a show until the rain stops.

As Dracul performs his magic act, he levitates Chibiusa, then puts Hotaru in a box and thrusts swords into it before pulling them out and releasing her unharmed. Everyone is very impressed. He retreats into the back of the stage and disappears, revealing Death Lamia and her Death Nightmares, who accompany her in dancing and singing ("Kubisuji wo Sashidase (Hold Out Your Neck!)"). At first, the Senshi think this is another performance, but soon it becomes clear that the supposed performers are threatening them. After they reveal themselves as the ones from Usagi's nightmare, Usagi begins to transform, but Death Lamia reminds her about the disasters and she hesitates. The Nightmares begin to absorb everyone's energy, and Lamia grabs Chibiusa.

Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune arrive and confront the villains ("Chou Bi! Uranus to Neptune (Super Beauty! Uranus and Neptune)"). They are joined by Sailor Pluto, who frees the captive Chibiusa. The Death Nightmares are joined by some hungry monsters (the Mannetjes in disguise), and when Uranus attempts to destroy them, her attack is blocked by Professor Tomoe, now in his Undead Berserk form and wielding a large weapon that he calls the Samael Sword. The Guardian Senshi transform and intervene, joining the others in the fight ("Solar Miracle, Make Up"). In the confusion, Count Dracul bites Mamoru. Sailor Moon finally transforms and unsuccessfully attempts to purify their enemies with the Moon Stick. She admits that she did not transform into Super Sailor Moon out of fear of her dream; she did still transform, though, and as an example of a disaster, Lamia presents a stumbling Mamoru, clutching his neck. The enemies leave.

Lamia is now alone, but Dracul appears and converses with her. She tries to convince Dracul to join their cause; if they get the Sailor Senshi's Star Seeds, they will destroy the humans and create a world of just Homunculi. Dracul, as the leader of the vampires, holds the power to awaken all the sleeping ones. Dracul, however, turns her down angrily, saying that he will exist as long as humans do, but they do not exist for vampires. Lamia is disgusted with him, but she is confident that he will change his mind. Dracul remembers his wife, Le Fay. He calls forth one of the servants that Tomoe gave him, and bites her neck. He wonders if it is okay to drink the blood even of artificial people and if he's really supposed to satisfy himself with just the promise of blood.

At the high school, Ami contemplatively sings about her conflicting desires to expand her horizons, and keep things as they are ("Dream Yume wa Ookiku (Dream, Dreams are Big)"). Makoto, Rei, and Minako join her and sing about what they dream of doing. Inspired by them, Ami makes her decision to go study medicine in Germany, departing tomorrow. They congratulate her, but are surprised she is leaving so soon. Ami is anxious about not telling Usagi yet. Chibiusa and Usagi arrive, the latter looking a bit down, saying that Mamoru has a light anemia, but should get better. She feels like the disaster was her fault. Rei blurts out that Ami is leaving, and Usagi starts crying, saying it is because she transformed. The others insist it is not related.

The four Death Mannetjes arrive dressed as the Outer Senshi, but nobody is fooled, especially when the real ones turn up and everyone chases them off. Ami apologizes to Usagi for not telling her about traveling abroad, but Usagi is angry that everyone knew about it and kept it a secret from her. She feels like they are condescending to her because they think she is childish and selfish. She runs off, yelling that she hates Ami and that they should not follow her. The Outer Senshi decide to follow her anyway, since the enemies might come back. Ami, now upset, says she is leaving today and departs. Chibiusa goes after her, saying she'll take care of it. Minako, Makoto, and Rei are left behind, depressed by the realization that with the new enemies around, their dreams will have to be put on hold. Suddenly, it grows dark and they are attacked by Lamia and her Nightmares who sap their energy away. Hypnotized, the three follow the enemies into the dark dream.

In Tomoe's lab, the enemies talk about Dracul. Lamia explains that he has a half-human daughter, Bloody Dracul Vampir, who Dracul left behind in his Transylvania castle because her body detests human blood. Tomoe understand that she is Dracul's weakness. Sailor Chibi Moon transforms and enters, but is completely ineffectual against the enemies and is easily captured. Hotaru arrives and is shocked to discover what actually goes on in her father's lab. She and Chibi Moon attempt to escape, but are stopped by Minako, Makoto, and Rei, now vampires. Tomoe tries to convince Hotaru of the rightness of his cause, but Death Vulcan's presence returns and tells them that Hotaru is Sailor Saturn. If she awakens, she will destroy everything. Chibi Moon is hauled off and Hotaru is restrained.

Elsewhere, Usagi regrets having fought with Ami and wants to congratulate her, but she is still sad that things are starting to change. Ami, on her way to the plane, sings that if she had seen Usagi's face, it would have been too painful for her to go ("Tabidachi (Departing)"). Suddenly, Ami is seized by the Death Nightmares and Death Lamia, who bites her neck. She calls out for help to Usagi through her watch communicator before collapsing. Haruka and Michiru arrive at Usagi's side just after Ami's voice cuts off.

Act 2

Professor Tomoe and his minions celebrate the artificial life they are creating and their coming victory ("Homunculus Tanjou Zenya (Eve of the Homunculus' Birth)"). Death Vulcan's presence returns and encourages them. Lamia asks if they should insert Chibi Moon's Star Seed into the Samael Flasks now, but Tomoe tells her to wait until they have dealt with the other Sailor Senshi. Dracul arrives, and Tomoe explains that if they use the Sailor Senshi's Star Seeds as their base, the Homunculi should turn out well. Dracul comments that it is perfect, since human blood has become unclean. Tomoe and Lamia welcome him into the group. Dracul wonders if this can save his wife, chained in purgatory, or their daughter.

By herself, Chibiusa prays to her mother. She feels terrible for being so useless, and for thinking she could do everything herself. She calls out for Usagi to save her, so they can fight again together. Hotaru enters with some food. She is fairly distressed at the discoveries she has made today about her father. She thinks that if she could transform, she could make the house disappear, even if she does not really understand Sailor Saturn's mission. A bat flies by, and Chibiusa finds the door key on the ground. Thinking that her wish must have reached her mother, she escapes and runs off to let Usagi know what is going on.

Elsewhere, Usagi talks about how scary it is to be alone, and strengthens her determination to fight for the people she loves. Mamoru arrives with an umbrella. Usagi is afraid that he will go away as well. He replies that even if he does, his love will remain. Then, the vampires Ami, Rei, Makoto, and Minako appear along with Death Lamia. Luckily, Uranus and Neptune arrive to protect the couple. Uranus is about to attack the Inner Senshi, but Usagi stops her, instead pleading for them to remember that they are friends, though it doesn't seem to work.

Usagi says that she will give Lamia the Silver Crystal, if that is what she wants. Tuxedo Mask breaks into the confrontation, however, and Usagi flees to his side. He, Uranus, and Neptune fight off the monsters, and the Sailor Senshi pursue them as they flee. More and more Tuxedo Masks join the first one, and there are soon five in all ("Tuxedo Mission"). Usagi is quite confused, but she manages to narrow it down to two. She remembers that the real one has a bandage on his neck, at which point Death Pu, the fake Tuxedo Mask, realizes that he is about to be identified and stabs the real one in the stomach. The other Mannetjes react in horror at what Death Pu has done, but he says that he had no other choice, and they all flee.

Tuxedo Mask collapses, clutching his chest. He tells Usagi it is not her fault, and reminds her that even if he dies, she will be able to see him in the mirror of their love. He tries to kiss her, but collapses. Usagi cries over his body in grief, accusing him of being a liar. She thinks that it is again her fault because she transformed. She feels as though she cannot go on, and tries to kill herself with the dagger, but Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto intervene. Pluto insists that Usagi must remain strong. She explains that Usagi simply does not know yet how strong she really is and that she in truth possess an infinite power capable of saving the world. She needs to believe in other people's love and in her own courage. Neptune agrees and adds that as Sailor Senshi, they fight for love. Uranus concludes that no matter what fate brings them, they will always have courage.

Suddenly, Tuxedo Mask stirs and rises as a vampire. Dracul emerges from the shadows and tells the Senshi that death has no meaning for his vampires. Usagi and the others recognize him as the magician, and he reintroduces himself. He informs them that Tuxedo Mask is now his underling. He rhetorically asks Usagi if she's happy that her boyfriend is not dead, and they disappear into the night. Usagi tries to run after him, but Death Lamia and her Death Nightmares appear again and the fight escalates. Chibi Moon joins the others, informing them that the enemy's base is Hotaru's home and that Hotaru is waiting for them. The Mannetjes return to fight, though they are quickly felled. Dracul appears and mocks the henchmen, as does the sword-wielding Undead Berserk.

The two sides are about to charge each other when Super Sailor Moon appears; no longer afraid of disasters, she attacks the Undead. Dracul grabs Neptune and bites her neck, then flees laughing into the night when Sailor Moon demands that he return Tuxedo Mask to her. The five Sailor Senshi combine the powers of the Silver Crystals of present and future with the Talismans, and Sailor Moon and Chibi Moon use Moon Princess Halation to purify their friends, driving away the other creatures of the night.

Alone, Dracul sings about the endless emptiness of his undead curse, wondering if he has brought it upon himself ("Dracul Hakushaku no Kodoku (Count Dracul's Solitude)"). He tells the Death Nightmare he bit earlier that he will let her care for his wife's name, and dubs her "Le Fay." Dracul also names Tuxedo Mask "Krusnik," as he would have his son, if had had one. He tells his new family about Transylvania and his daughter.

The Sailor Senshi investigate Tomoe's seemingly abandoned lab, but Hotaru is nowhere to be found. They also comment on the Homonculi, and Mercury lectures the others about the work of the alchemist, Paracelsus. They hear pounding and moaning coming from a tall cabinet off to the side of the lab, and after freeing a bound and gagged man dressed in a lab coat they realize he is Hotaru's father. He does not know much of what is going on, however.

Voices come from above, and three men in dark cloaks emerge, claiming to be the Count Bloody Dracul. Nobody is impressed, especially since the Mannetjes obviously just raised the collars from their Tuxedo Mask costumes. They're joined by "Hotaru's father," Death Pi, and they do many imitations. The Senshi beat them up, but Neptune, standing off to the side, seems strangely detached. Professor Tomoe enters and apologizes for his failed creations. The Senshi ask where Hotaru is, and he points to where Death Lamia is holding her as a hostage. The Death Nightmares come out and surround the Senshi. Hotaru demands to know where her real papa is and Tomoe explains that he is really Undead Berserk controlling the professor's body.

Lamia and Tomoe ask the Sailor Senshi to surrender their Star Seeds for the sake of the perfect Homunculi, saying that they would then be able to enter the Homunculi's bodies, the youkai would all awaken, and the humans would all die. In a swift motion, Tomoe draws his sword and stabs Chibi Moon. She collapses as the Samael Flasks briefly glow pink. Before the fighting can start Dracul arrives and throws aside those in his path, demanding the Samael Flasks for himself. Tomoe and Lamia are outraged by his betrayal. When the Death Nightmares and Sailor Uranus move to attack him, he is protected by "Le Fay" and the now-vampire Neptune. Everyone is shocked, and Dracul and his minions flee into the night with the Samael Flasks.

A dying Sailor Chibi Moon apologizes for being a brat all this time, saying she wanted to become strong like Sailor Moon. Sailor Moon, desperate, muses that if Count Dracul turns Chibi Moon into an Undead, at least she will not die and will be with her beloved Tuxedo Mask, but nobody else thinks this is a good idea. Uranus says that if Neptune is an enemy, she will kill her. Hotaru says that she cannot forgive the Undead for this death. Energy gathers, and she and Chibi Moon's body disappear. Realizing that the reborn Sailor Saturn might destroy the world, the remaining Senshi pursue her.

Dracul and his three servants are out in a cemetery with the Samael Flasks. Dracul explains that with these, his daughter will no longer need human blood and will maybe hate him less because of it. "Le Fay" says she will return to Transylvania to be Vampir's new mother. Dracul then tells the fate of his wife who never got a chance to wear the white dress because she was killed at the hands of her own father. He wonders why humans spill blood, thinking it may be because of Cain; they do not need to do it to survive, like vampires do. For this reason, he argues that the cursed ones are not the vampires, but rather the humans.

Suddenly Sailor Saturn appears, willing to swing the Silence Glaive and destroy the world ("To a Brand-New World"). However, after a moment, Saturn collapses from the strain of her resurrection. The five Inner Senshi arrive. They have brought mirrors, garlic, crosses, stakes, and milk (because Usagi was told it would eliminate "bad blood"). Dracul is highly insulted, and delivers an impromptu lecture on vampire myths, and how recent most of them are; for instance, in Carmilla, vampires can walk around in daylight. He does admit to being the inspiration for Bram Stroker's novel, Dracula. He asks the Senshi if they know what a person born from a human and a vampire is.

Undead Berserk and his crew arrive, and Lamia explains that such a Dhampir would have the power to kill vampires. The two sides move to engage each other. The Senshi and a recovered Saturn are joined by Pluto and Uranus. Deciding to take an active hand in the fight, Jupiter leads the Inner Senshi in pushing back all the Undead. Sailor Moon is about to blast Berserk, but Dracul warns that they shouldn't attack him. Berserk attacks Moon with the Samael Sword, but she's shielded from the blast by Dracul. Dying, Dracul tells Berserk that darkness is simply light's shadow. He also says that unlike Berserk, he was not swayed by Samael, the fallen angel. He tells a concerned "Le Fay" that she really does look like his wife, and repeats that the cursed ones are the warring humans, then disappears in red smoke. "Le Fay", blaming Sailor Moon for Dracul's death, joins Berserk's side.

Uranus confronts Neptune. She thanks her for always being by her side, no matter how fast she ran, and how painful it must have been, then raises her sword. Before Uranus can deliver her blow, however, Sailor Moon pleads with the Undead, who she knows have dreams and wishes like everyone else. Echoing Dracul's last words, she says that if light and shadow were not both needed, then God would not have created them. Death Vulcan declares that their god is right there, and orders Berserk to resume the fight. Berserk is willing, but Lamia seems less certain about her role in this affair. She notes that if Dracul is dead, then his curse should be lifted, but only for the humans. "Le Fay" flees the scene, killing one of her fellow Nightmares, but Lamia orders that they let her go, since she has a mission. Berserk reminds Lamia of their own mission, and, now that all the interference is gone, prepares to attack.

A rose flies across the fight, and Tuxedo Mask arrives ("Tuxedo Loyal"). He explains that the Samael Sword is neither good nor evil, it simply depends on the purpose for which it is used. He awakens Neptune, for whom the undead curse is also broken. Sailor Moon and the others hear Chibi Moon's voice coming from the Samael Flasks, asking them to free her. Berserk tries to stop them, but the Senshi disagree with his goal to create flawless humans. They fight for the ordinary humans who just want to live out their lives and find happiness, however short. Saturn says that is why she cannot destroy the Earth. Berserk is surprised that they are so unconcerned with their own mortality. He attacks with his sword's power again, but Saturn blocks it, and the Senshi attack him.

Berserk rises and roars, charging and swinging wildly, and ends up killing the Mannetjes. They are quite surprised to find that they are dying, and very dismayed to discover that they will never become the flawless humans that they wanted to be. Lamia informs the Senshi that this is why Dracul tried to stop them; she says that Berserk has gone into a frenzy and there is nothing that can be done to save them, and she leaves for good. The Sailor Senshi are still determined to win and Sailor Moon transforms into Eternal Sailor Moon ("FIRE"). Moon uses her power to free Chibi Moon's Star Seed from the Samael Flasks and revive her, and she joins the fight. The Sailor Senshi surround Berserk, and Moon and Chibi Moon destroy him.

Moon expresses her doubts that creating artificial life would have made people happy. She repeats her sentiments that both light and darkness are needed, and that she wants to live a normal life, protecting the ones she loves and the people who want the same thing ("L'Amour D'Amour Moonlight"). Later on, a woman's ominous voice and a beating heart can be heard. Blood red light shines upon Count Dracul's dead wife's white dress, and Eternal Sailor Moon stands alone, looking into the darkness.

    Kessen - Transylvania no Mori ~Shin Toujou! Chibi-Usa wo Mamoru Senshi-Tachi (Decisive Battle - Transylvania Forest ~New Appearance! The Soldiers Who Protect Chibi-Usa

Act 1

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/transylvania_front.jpg
The opening text and narration explains that humans used to live alongside youkai (spirits). Over time, humans expanded their homes and destroyed forests, and began to believe that they could govern the planet by themselves. Spirits are being forgotten. A man and woman are seen onstage. The man (Gilles de Rais) appears and calls humans "arrogant", and the woman (Elizabeth Bathory) wonders what will happen to tonight's victims. The two of them chant "yumeyume utagau koto nakare yumemiru mori no yume no yume" (do not doubt the dreams of the dreams of the forest that dreams).

Super Sailor Moon stands in what appears to be a church with the Samael Sword resting in an altar, and explains the events of Last Dracul Jokyoku. She is joined by Sailor Uranus, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter and Venus. Someone can be heard chanting the "dream" chant, and a mysterious cloaked figure can be briefly seen. Sailor Moon is joined by the rest of the Sailor Senshi ("Millennium - Koi no Senshi ja Irarenai (Can't Just Be Soldiers of Love)"). Super Sailor Moon draws another sword from the Samael Sword and declares that she will definitely come to this "Transylvania".

Elsewhere, Bloody Dracul Vampir is mourning her father's death and musing about being burdened with the fate of the vampire clan ("Image De Mon Pere (Image of My Father)"). As she sings, four small figures quietly enter. Le Fay appears and declares that it is Vampir's duty to take revenge on those responsible for Count Dracul's death, but Vampir refuses, saying that she is not a monster. A voice says that there is no such thing as monsters. A woman enters, holding a staff, flanked by four other people (Elizabeth Bathory, Gilles de Rais, Lilit, and Lilim). Elizabeth Bathory asks what makes them monsters. Gilles de Rais answers that the forest creatures see humans as monsters. The woman with the staff insists that Heaven has selected Vampir as the leader of the vampires, but Vampir refuses again. The woman warns her that Vampir's defiance will lead to her clan's ruin. The man kneels and refers to himself as Vampir's servant. The other newcomers want to celebrate, and even offer Vampir a drink. Vampir refuses again, but the woman with a staff (Lilith of Darkness) declares that she cannot reject the fate that was decided by Heaven. Lilith utters an incantation and uses her blood in a ritual. Elizabeth, Gilles de Rais, Vampir, and Le Fay all drink from the glasses that she gives to them.

Lilith orders Elizabeth to go to Japan. She states that the next step in the revenge plan is to revive Count Dracul with the Silver Crystal (the power of which has sealed him in the underworld), which is owned by Sailor Moon. Gilles de Rais interrupts Lilith's rant about the Ginzuishou. Vampir protests again, but Lilith reminds her that her mother, Le Fay, was murdered for being with a vampire. Lilith insists that if God were real, no living thing would suffer. Separating the underworld from the mortal realm, is, in her terms, unacceptable, and the Ginzuishou is doing just that. Gilles de Rais asks Vampir to destroy the Silver Crystal. Lilith imbues the four children present with the power of Samael, and they become the Samael Quartet ("Yume Yume Utagau Koto Nakare (Don't Doubt Dreams)").

Cere Cere is doing flower fortunes, and it appears that something is coming. The Quartet and the Baron are in the process of looking for an Alraune, but they stumble upon a Mandragora instead. He introduces himself as Mandrake, a plant that needs another 100 years underground to be a full-fledged Mandragora. He claims to be a healing plant who can heal problems of the heart. Gilles de Rais is interested in this, and offers to bring Mandrake back in 100 years. To him, 100 years is nothing, and he mentions someone named "Jeanne". He also mentions that the Devil resembles God by its very nature.

At Azabu Juuban High School, Usagi, Minako, and Makoto melodramatically mourn their poor marks on their English exam. Even Ami admits that she had trouble with one of the questions - there was a lot of Medieval English on the exam. Rei enters, excited for summer vacation and hoping that they don't get tricked into a trip like "that horrible Kaguya Island tour last year". The girls about to head for Shibuya when Haruka shows up and mentions Europe. Setsuna and Hotaru enter, and Setsuna tells Usagi that the English teacher is looking for her. Michiru is performing on a concert tour in Europe, and everyone offers their services so that they can go with her. Michiru invites everyone and mentions that the trip includes trips to old European castles. The group is thrilled with the prospect ("Set Me Free ~Euro~ Wasurenai Natsuyasumi (Won't Forget Summer Vacation)"). Mamoru enters and asks if Usagi passed her test. If she doesn't pass, she won't get to go on to the next year in school. The English teacher (Elizabeth Bathory in disguise) enters and reminds Usagi that she got a zero in English. If Usagi can't get full marks, then she will not get a summer vacation. Makoto and Minako also did poorly, so the three of them need to improve their scores in 6 days along with a new student. Rei comes up with the idea for a training camp from hell at Hikawa Shrine in order to get their scores up, and some of the group leave. Usagi talks to the new transfer student, who introduces herself as Sheba Shingetsu Astarte. Usagi asks if she wants to join their study group, but Sheba calls it the "enemy language" and seems to be on the fence about it. Usagi tells her where to meet them, and Sheba leaves. Hotaru remarks that Sheba's shadow tends to disappear, but brushes it off as her imagination. It looks like a storm is coming, so everyone leaves for the shrine.

Lilith laments her current state of being and the world ("Ankoku no Madonna (Madonna of Darkness)"). She has suffered under a male God and is determined to rise to power. She wants the virgin mother goddess to be revered instead, and wants to be honored as the Mother. Lilith has found Astarte, who is now biding her time as the "trump card" of Heaven and Earth. Sheba enters, wearing a cloak. Lilith awakens and contacts Astarte, the goddess within Sheba. Astarte is currently in purgatory, and Lilith intends to release her from it. It is also revealed that something called Death Vulcan is emitting light from within her. Sheba snaps out of her trance, saying that there's someone inside of her.

In the catacombs of Dracul's mansion, Le Fay introduces Vampir to the house and shows her her mother's wedding gown. Vampir bristles at the Nightmare being given her mother's name, and Le Fay explains that she was entrusted with watching over Vampir by Dracul. Vampir does not buy it. Le Fay also reminds Vampir that she has no memory of her mother and tells her that Le Fay was killed by Dracul because Le Fay wanted to die a human. Vampir thought that she had committed suicide. Le Fay expresses her hate for human beings. Gilles de Rais enters and also throws in with Le Fay's hatred for humanity, noting that humans will kill their own great heroes and children for their selfish desires. Elizabeth enters and informs them that the Sailor Senshi are on their way. Le Fay warns them that the Sailor Senshi did defeat Berserk and the Samael Sword didn't work on them, but Gilles de Rais claims that was because of who was wielding it.

The group talks strategy. Le Fay points out that the Senshi are strongest when combined. Uranus is the best at hand-to-hand combat, Jupiter has the most raw power, and Mars has the strongest foresight. Without them, the Senshi fall apart. However, Mercury is the most intelligent, and Neptune is the most likely to think of a way to victory (the "worthiest" skill, according to Gilles de Rais), Venus is the fastest, and Pluto has time itself on her side. Saturn and Moon are both wild cards. Gilles de Rais decides to target Mars because of her sixth sense. Elizabeth asks if it's because her power is like Joan of Arc's, but he dodges the question. Vampir doesn't believe that such a power exists, and decides to go and see it for herself. Elizabeth expresses her misgiving about Vampir being the leader of the vampires before the rest of the group leaves.

Mandrake and the Quartet enter, at odds with each other the whole way. He doesn't like that Cere Cere is picking apart flowers, but she refuses to use fewer flowers. The Quartet are trying to find their purpose. Cere Cere tries to find it through divination, but she hears a voice saying "no" and telling her to not ruin the dream. It appears that only the Quartet can hear this voice. Jun Jun and Palla Palla begin to look for weaknesses in their enemies. Elsewhere, Chibi-Usa has been having strange dreams about four girls who have had their dreams taken away. All the while, Cere Cere has been having dreams about a girl in a castle with lots of dreams - and they both feel familiar to each other. It appears to be linked to Chibi-Usa's star seed being taken in the previous show.

At Hikawa Shrine, Rei is praying to the sacred fire as Usagi and Makoto are studying with Ami and Mamoru. It is not going well, and the group is getting hungry. Setsuna and Haruka arrive with food, and the group takes a break as Michiru plays the violin outside. Hotaru notices that someone is outside. It's Sheba, who joins the study group. Michiru runs in, distressed - she has seen a vampire outside. Gilles de Rais and Elizabeth appear from behind a screen and introduce themselves. They are looking for Sailor Mars, who appears to fight them off ("Honoo no Messenger (Messenger of Flame)"). Uranus, Neptune, and Jupiter transform as well. Sailor Mars attacks the intruders, but the Samael Quartet show up and block her attack. Before they can launch an offensive, they hear Chibi-Usa's voice again. The intruders leave, and Elizabeth tells the Sailor Senshi that they will meet again on the next full moon. While chasing them off, Sailor Mars is bitten by Vampir, who leaves behind a note signed "Bloody Dracul". Uranus is incensed upon finding this note.

Mandrake gives a brief soliloquy about humans not caring about plans. He is joined by Elizabeth and Gilles. Elizabeth is not happy about the earlier attack being "just a test", and there is some comedy about her hatred of the word "wrinkle" and anything that sounds like it. More comedy ensues with puns and the uses of Mandrake ("Guoul Guoul Guoula"). The Quartet return, and some more barbs are exchanged.

Bloody Dracul Vampir plans to drive a wedge between the Sailor Senshi in order to exact her revenge on them ("All Of You Shall Die"). She is eventually joined by the rest of the antagonists. Vampir confirms that she's "taken care of" Mars, and that she will handle the rest. Death Vulcan then speaks through the Quartet. On the night of the full moon, there will be a feast in Transylvania. A celestial body will emerge, allowing Death Vulcan to counter its imprisonment. The last thing it needs is the power of the Silver Crystal. If they give it the Crystal, it will give them the Earth. Gilles de Rais reveals that the vampires exist as Death Vulcan's vassals, which is news to Vampir, who states that only she can destroy vampires.

The Outer Senshi arrive, ready to fight ("Kokoro Tabanete Watchin' on the Sight (Bundle the Heart, Watchin' on the Sight)"). They are joined by Sailor Jupiter ("Zigzag Slash"). Uranus is about to attack when Lilith arrives. She easily knocks over the Senshi and is about to attack when Sailor Moon and the rest of the Sailor Senshi arrive. Sailor Moon attempts to use Moon Healing Escalation, but to no avail.

Lilith summons her Dark Tarot to trap everyone in an illusion, and the Senshi are attacked one by one, starting with Vampir biting Jupiter. Chibi-Usa and the Samael Quartet meet in the depths of the dream summoned by Lilith ("Yumemiru Mori no Yume no Yume (A Dream of the Dreaming Forest's Dream)"). Lilith appears and tells the Quartet that Chibi-Usa has a Silver Crystal, and turns them against her. Tuxedo Mask arrives to save Chibi-Usa ("Here Comes the Tuxedo Mask"). Lilith brings the Quartet under her thrall again and it becomes dark. Tuxedo Mask has apparently been separated from Chibi-Usa.

In a mausoleum, Lilith sings to Astarte ("Kaikou ~Lilith to Astarte~ (A Chance Meeting ~Lilith and Astarte~)"). She wishes to destroy this world and create one that Astarte rules over as the true goddess. Sheba appears, and Astarte declares herself the true goddess of the moon. The Quartet arrive and stand before Astarte. Gilles de Rais reveals to the Quartet that they are Homunculi - artificial life forms. Lilith offers them the chance to be Neonates - real humans - if they help her obtain the Silver Crystal.

The Outer Senshi are scattered throughout subspace. Uranus meets Vampir, who says that Uranus can be "useful" to her. Uranus responds sarcastically, but insists that she will avenge Neptune (who was previously turned into a vampire by Count Dracul). She skirmishes with the Nightmares, and Vampir taunts her. Vampir manages to bite her before the rest of the Outers catch up with Uranus. The rest of the Senshi catch up with them, as do the Quartet. They are joined by the vampires, including Gilles de Rais, who now has the Samael Sword. Just then, Sheba attacks, and reveals herself as Sailor Astarte, the tenth Sailor Senshi from beyond the sun. Her attack forces Gilles to drop the sword.

Act 2

The Sailor Senshi are at the airport, ready to travel to Europe ("Set Me Free ~Hitomi wa Sora e~ (Eyes to the Sky)). Their English teacher has offered to guide them around the area. As everyone else goes on ahead, Usagi voices her determination to save everyone, but she is also trying to hide her worry and sadness ("Mitsumeteite yo (Watch over Me)"). Mamoru tries to reassure her before the rest of the Senshi join them. Haruka, clearly concerned about her vampire bite, says that if anything should happen to her, they should get rid of her before Michiru catches on. Usagi wants to meet Vampir to tell her that Count Dracul saved her.

Gilles de Rais is concerned, since nothing should surpass the Samael Sword's power. Lilith says that it depends on the wielder. The sword appears to be aligning itself with another heart. Lilith doesn't consider Sailor Astarte's appearance a betrayal since there is no such thing as pure evil; rather, she seems to be reacting to Samael, the demon in the sword. If they can use that power to their advantage, it will be helpful. Vampir calls Lilith out for manipulating everyone present, and in her frustration, she exclaims that there are "too many mothers" in the castle before storming out. The vampires and the Quartet sing "Guoul Guoul Guoula" in full.

Vampir is cooling off and thinking in the forest ("Koshuuki (A Period of Lonely Contemplation)"). She is joined by Chibi-Usa, who is lost in the forest. Chibi-Usa asks who Vampir's lost her way from, and says that she'll definitely find them. Chibi-Usa tells Vampir a bit about her search for the Quartet. Le Fay enters, and Chibi-Usa recognizes her. Vampir asks her to leave Chibi-Usa alone, but Lilith enters and summons Super Sailor Moon to their location ("The Last Change"). Sailor Astarte also arrives to protect the Silver Crystal. Sailor Astarte wants Moon to go home, but is struggling with staying in this form. She thanks Sailor Moon for believing in her. Sailor Astarte explains that Sheba's mother disappeared while traveling in Eastern Europe, which broke Sheba. She warns Moon about her other personality, which is becoming stronger. Her time left as Sheba and Sailor Astarte is growing short. She also knows that something is wrong with everything that has happened so far, but she can't articulate exactly what it is before she collapses.

Meanwhile, at Dracul's castle, the antagonists have reconvened and imprisoned Chibi-Usa. Vampir calls out Le Fay for trying to be her mother, and expresses distaste for using children to get the Silver Crystal. Gilles de Rais breaks up the argument, but not without taking a verbal jab from Le Fay. The moon is now full and Astarte's other personality has completely taken over - now is the time to attack. Lilith shows the Quartet the flasks they came from to refute Chibi-Usa and Vampir's protests. The Sailor Senshi have arrived in Transylvania, and the antagonists prepare for the Sabbath feast.

The Senshi's guides have gone, one of Michiru's concerts was canceled, and the group is now lost. Sheba makes a pun, and Usagi breaks the fourth wall while laughing at the joke. Elizabeth arrives in her teacher disguise and leads them to then mansion, presenting the rest of the antagonists as her "family". The Quartet and Chibi-Usa are also there, disguised as bears ("Guoul Guoul Guoula ~Sabbath Ver.~"). Chibi-Usa lets Usagi know that it's her, and when the jig is up, Lilith appears. The antagonists prepare to take the Silver Crystal. Sheba enters and attempts to transform, but collapses. Vampir appears and attacks. Usagi also attempts to transform, but to no avail. Sheba finally awakens as the goddess Astarte, and attacks. The antagonists head for the castle once more. Makoto, Haruka, and Rei realize that they don't have much time left before they turn into vampires, and the group resolves to fight ("Sailor War!").

At Dracul's castle, Elizabeth reflects on the 600 girls she killed and how God doesn't understand just how cold she is as she continues to live on. Murder made her feel alive. Vampir wonders what sin humans have committed. Elizabeth says that it is living, and that spirits are there to kill humans. Le Fay points out that if humans are killed, the spirits will die too. This is why Gilles de Rais doesn't believe in gods - only in Death Vulcan, a being above a god. Vampir is asking this question because she is wrestling with her own fate and why the Quartet were created. She thirsts for blood, and Elizabeth reveals that the homunculi were made for the purpose of feeding her.

The Sailor Senshi arrive (including Sailor Moon in her normal form). Moon wants to speak with Vampir, but everyone else is ready to fight, and a battle ensues ("Millennium - Koi no Senshi ja Irarenai (Can't Just Be Soldiers of Love)"). Sailor Moon transforms into Super Sailor Moon during the battle. Death Vulcan commands Gilles de Rais to unsheathe he Samael sword, and he easily counters Uranus with Death Vulcan's power. Death Vulcan's voice can be heard, and Moon has had enough of its games. She attacks it.

In Dark Cain's temple, each faction is ready for the final confrontation ("We'll Be the Last Victory"). The temple sits on what is left of Eden. Lilith recounts that she was cursed to birth 100 children a day, who would all die, and she threw herself into the ocean. She was saved by Lucifer, and her children with him became demons. She claims that humans were once immortal, but the planet now calls for the death of humanity. Sailor Moon wants to know who told her that, but Lilith dodges the question by telling Vampir to attack. Vampir does not want to take orders from her, though. Moon tries to reason with Astarte, who instead attacks her. Moon then tries to tell Vampir what really happened to Count Dracul, but Le Fay insists that Moon killed him, and Vampir refuses to talk anymore. The battle begins again.

Uranus, Mars, and Jupiter begin to succumb to their bites. Moon tries to heal them, but it has no effect. They rise under Vampir's control. Neptune protects Moon from Uranus and resolves to take all of Uranus's attacks, because she doesn't want to live if she has to fight Uranus. Moon offers to give Vampir the Silver Crystal because she doesn't want to fight her friends. She tries to appeal to Vampir's humanity, since Vampir protected Chibi-Usa and the Quartet. Mandrake has come around to humans and reveals that he grew where Joan of Arc died. Sailor Moon reminds him of her, so Gilles de Rais mustn't let her die. Lilith strikes Mandrake down. Astarte reveals that she made the undead - they're homunculi meant to fight humans. Le Fay takes an attack meant for Vampir and realizes that Dracul knew that this fighting was pointless all along. She apologizes to Vampir before dying.

On Astarte's orders, the Senshi begin to fight each other. Mars and Mercury, Jupiter and Venus, and Uranus and Pluto end up killing each other. Astarte is apparently calling to another planet - and something has been awakened inside of her. The Quartet appears once more with Lilith. Astarte - or rather, whatever is possessing her - claims to be the strongest. Gilles de Rais and Elizabeth Bathory re-enter, wearing armor and carrying swords. Tuxedo Mask, healed by Mandrake, reveals that Cain, humanity's first murderer, is now possessing Sheba. The Quartet attempt to attack, but Chibi-Usa appears and reveals that they were created from her star seed.

Vampir has lost her patience for following Astarte/Cain's directions. The "magic race" and this fight with humans was all a trick by him. After Sailor Moon delivers a speech about why she wants to protect humanity, Gilles de Rais blocks Cain's attack. As he is dying, he draws the Orleans Piercer, a sword he made for Joan of Arc, from the Samael Sword. Elizabeth kills herself with the sword, as does Vampir, which lifts her curse. Cain is not impressed and casts a dark spell, but Chibi-Moon enters with the newly awakened Asteroid Senshi, and they attack. In retaliation, Cain reverses the flow of life, which opens the door of death and allows the Sailor Senshi to come back for the final battle ("FIRE"). During the battle, Sailor Moon purifies Lilith, and transforms into Eternal Sailor Moon to defeat Cain. She demands that Cain release Astarte, but it is never clear as to whether he does.

When all is said and done, Eternal Sailor Moon gives a speech about love conquering all and lullabies defeating sadness. Before the curtain falls, she calls out to Death Vulcan - is it really out there?

    Kessen - Transylvania no Mori Kaiteiban - Saikyou no Kataki Dark Cain no Nazo (The Mystery of Dark Cain, The Ultimate Enemy

Act 1

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/001_1_3.jpg
A voice (Bloody Dracul Vampir) delivers an opening narration about mankind's arrogance. The scene opens on Count Dracul and a female character in the underworld. They talk about the Ginzuishou, the power of which is keeping Count Dracul in the underworld, but is resisted by Vulcan. The Ginzuishou has not chosen "that planet" again, but the woman says that it's alright - the Ginzuishou is only an intermediary in a larger conflict. Humans, spirits, and the Earth will all be destroyed - and so will she. She refers to Dracul as "Abel" before the lights go down.

At Azabu Juuban High School, Usagi, Minako, Makoto, and Haruka melodramatically mourn their poor marks on their Chemistry exam. Usagi managed to get a hold of the question sheet, which doesn't prove to be particularly helpful. There were confusing things like "belladonna" and "digitalis" on the exam. Ami enters and admits that even she had trouble with one of the questions - it was about belladonna, which they hadn't been taught about. As she reads the book she is carrying, she explains that belladonna was once used by European women to make their eyes appear larger.

Rei enters, excited for winter vacation, holding a bottle of eye drops that she wants to use to attract boys. Michiru enters with the last available bottle and mentions Europe. Setsuna and Hotaru enter, and Setsuna tells Usagi that the Chemistry teacher is looking for her. Michiru is performing on a concert tour in Europe, and she invites everyone along. The trip also includes outings to old European castles. The group is thrilled with the prospect ("Set Me Free ~Euro~").

Mamoru enters and asks if Usagi passed her test. If she doesn't pass, she won't get to go on to the next year in school. The English teacher (Marquise de Brinvilliers in disguise) enters and reminds Usagi that she got a zero. If Usagi can't get full marks, then she will not get a vacation. Makoto, Minako, and Haruka also did poorly, so the four of them need to improve their scores in 6 days along with a new student. Brinvilliers-sensei takes Ami's book and talks about the use of atropine (belladonna) to hide a murder by morphine poisoning before leaving. Michiru jokes about leaving the four behind, and Usagi bristles at the idea of Mamoru being in Europe with big eyes, surrounded by other women. Rei comes up with the idea for a training camp from hell at Hikawa Shrine in order to get their scores up, and some of the group leave. Usagi talks to the new transfer student, who introduces herself as Sheba Shingetsu Astarte. Usagi asks if she wants to join their study group, but Sheba seems to be on the fence about it. Usagi tells her where to meet them, and Sheba leaves.

Hotaru remarks that Sheba's shadow tends to disappear, but brushes it off as her imagination. Setsuna and Hotaru mention that lately, animals have been going missing. Mamoru notes that it's even been quieter at night, as if there are fewer dogs about. Usagi brushes it off. It looks like a storm is coming, so everyone leaves for the shrine. She hangs back for a moment, claiming that she left something behind in a classroom. In reality, she can feel that everyone has been anxious since their conflict with Count Dracul ("Shadow on My Sweet Memories"). Mamoru comes back to reassure her, and tells her that with just one happy memory, she can be strong. Usagi and Mamoru leave together. Brinvilliers appears and says that even unpleasant memories can make one stronger before disappearing again.

Vampir is quietly reflecting in the Transylvania forest church ruins ("Koshuuki (A Period of Lonely Contemplation)"). She is eventually joined by four young girls and Le Fay. Le Fay declares that it is Vampir's duty to take revenge on those responsible for Count Dracul's death, but Vampir refuses, saying that she is not a monster. A voice says that there is no such thing as monsters. A woman enters, holding a staff, flanked by four other people (Marquise de Brinvilliers, Gilles de Rais, Lilit, and Lilim). Gilles de Rais states that the forest creatures see humans as monsters. The woman with the staff insists that Heaven has selected Vampir as the leader of the vampires, but Vampir refuses again. The woman warns her that Vampir's defiance will lead to her clan's ruin. The man kneels and refers to himself as Vampir's servant. The other newcomers want to celebrate, and even offer Vampir a drink. Vampir refuses again, but the woman with a staff (Lilith of Darkness) declares that she cannot reject the fate that was decided by Heaven. Lilith utters an incantation and uses her blood in a ritual to invoke Samuel's power. de Brinvilliers, Gilles de Rais, Vampir, and Le Fay all drink from the glasses that she gives to them.

Lilith claims that destroying the Silver Crystal will free Vampir's mother from the underworld and insists that if God were real, no living thing would suffer. Separating the underworld from the mortal realm, is, in her terms, unacceptable, and the Ginzuishou is doing just that. She claims that Sailor Moon is the source of calamity. Gilles de Rais asks Vampir to destroy the Silver Crystal. Lilith imbues the four children present with the power of the Samael (disregarding Vampir's protest), and they become the Samael Quartet ("Yume Yume Utagau Koto Nakare (Don't Doubt Dreams)").

The Quartet believe that the voice they hear in their dreams is coming. For the time being, their assignment is to find an alraune. They find some kind of plant, and they are joined by Gilles de Rais. Lilith enters and identifies it as a Mandragora, warning them of its deadly scream when uprooted. She is about to uproot it with a spell when it uproots itself to spare itself the pain. He introduces himself as Mandrake, a plant that needs another 100 years underground to be a full-fledged Mandragora. He claims to be a healing plant who can heal problems of the heart. Gilles de Rais is interested in this, and offers to bring Mandrake back in 100 years. To him, 100 years is nothing, and he mentions someone named "Jeanne". He also mentions that the Devil resembles God by its very nature. Lilith then transports the group to Japan.

At Hikawa Shrine, Rei is praying to the sacred fire as Usagi and Makoto are studying with Ami and Mamoru and Haruka is reading by herself. It is not going well, and the group is getting hungry. Minako, Hotaru, and Setsuna finish preparing some food, and the group takes a break as Michiru plays the violin outside. Hotaru notices that someone is outside. It's Sheba, who joins the study group. Michiru runs in, distressed - she has seen a vampire outside. Gilles de Rais, Lilit, and Lilim appear from behind a screen, and Gilles introduces himself. Sailor Mars appears to fight them off ("Honoo no Messenger (Messenger of Flame)"). Uranus and Neptune transform as well, and de Brinvilliers also joins the fight. Sailor Mars attacks the intruders, but the Samael Quartet show up and block her attack. Ves Ves connects an attack, and de Brinvilliers reveals that she poisoned the food. Sailor Moon enters and reveals that the poison didn't work because Minako messed up the dish. She tries to use Moon Healing Escalation, but it is ineffective. Lilith appears and delivers an invitation from a "familiar figure", signed "Bloody Dracul". Uranus is incensed upon reading it.

Gilles de Rais, de Brinvilliers, Mandrake, and the Quartet sing "Guoul Guoul Guoula". Afterward, the Quartet are alone. Chibi-Usa has been having strange dreams about four girls who have had their dreams taken away. All the while, the Quartet have been having dreams about a girl in a castle with lots of dreams - and they both feel familiar to each other. It appears to be linked to Chibi-Usa's star seed being taken in the previous show.

At Count Dracul's mansion, Vampir lays out her plan to drive a wedge between the Sailor Senshi ("All of You Shall Die"). She is joined by the rest of the antagonists, and declares that she will be the one to take out the Senshi. Death Vulcan then speaks through the Quartet. On the night of the full moon, there will be a feast in Transylvania. A celestial body will emerge, allowing Death Vulcan to counter its imprisonment. The last thing it needs is the power of the Silver Crystal. If they give it the Crystal, it will give them the Earth. Gilles de Rais reveals that the vampires exist as Death Vulcan's vassals, which is news to Vampir, who states that only she can destroy vampires.

The Outer Senshi arrive, ready to fight ("Kokoro Tabanete Watchin' on the Sight (Bundle the Heart, Watchin' on the Sight)"). They are joined by Sailor Jupiter ("Zigzag Slash"). Uranus is about to attack when Lilith arrives. She easily knocks over the Senshi and is about to attack when Sailor Moon and the rest of the Sailor Senshi arrive. Sailor Moon attempts to use Moon Healing Escalation, but to no avail.

Lilith summons her Dark Tarot to trap everyone in an illusion, and she sends the Quartet to meet their "destined enemy". Chibi-Usa and the Samael Quartet meet in the depths of the dream summoned by Lilith ("Yumemiru Mori no Yume no Yume (A Dream of the Dreaming Forest's Dream)"). Lilith appears with de Brinvilliers and Gilles de Rais and tells the Quartet that Chibi-Usa has a Silver Crystal, and turns them against her. Tuxedo Mask arrives to save Chibi-Usa ("Here Comes the Tuxedo Mask"). Sheba enters, but Lilith refers to her as "Dark Cain". Cain orders Lilith to let the vampires deal with the Senshi, and tells Gilles de Rais that the Samael Sword has been revived. Lilith casts a dark spell, and they all disappear.

Elsewhere in subspace, Vampir reflects on her father's death and the burden of her clan's fate ("Image De Mon Pere (Image of My Father)"). She then resolves to go after the strongest Senshi first, and engages Uranus. Uranus refers to her as "Neptune's enemy", and they exchange barbs before they are joined by Mars and Jupiter. Vampir manages to bite all three and escape, telling them that she will be waiting in the mausoleum. The rest of the Senshi show up, as do the Samael Quartet and Gilles de Rais, who is now carrying the Samael Sword. Sheba appears, attacks the antagonists, and reveals herself as the tenth Sailor Senshi from beyond the sun: Sailor Astarte. She attacks again, and her attack breaks the Samael Sword.

It grows dark and misty as Count Dracul appears before everyone ("Dracul Hakushaku no Kodoku (Count Dracul's Solitude)").

Act 2

In a mausoleum, Lilith sings to Astarte ("Kaikou ~Lilith to Astarte~ (A Chance Meeting ~Lilith and Astarte~)"). She wishes to destroy this world and create one that Astarte rules over as the true goddess. Sheba appears, and Astarte declares herself the true goddess of the moon. The Quartet arrive and stand before Astarte. Gilles de Rais reveals to the Quartet that they are Homunculi - artificial life forms. Lilith offers them the chance to be Neonates - real humans - if they help her destroy the Silver Crystal. It appears that the Senshi are due to arrive in Bucharest soon. Gilles de Rais asks Sheba why the Samael Sword broke. She states that it was because it could not withstand the Senshi's power. Cain speaks through her to warn them of the "other" Vulcan, who is trying to use Sheba's body to help Sailor Moon. He states that it will send guidance, but when Astarte awakens, they cannot be sure if she will work for or against them. Gilles de Rais wonders if Astarte, too, is a double-edged sword.

The Senshi have arrived in Bucharest ("Set Me Free ~Hitomi wa Sora e~ (Eyes to the Sky)"). Michiru's concert in Vienna was canceled, but they run into Brinvilliers-sensei, who offers to show them her family's home, and they leave. Mandrake and the Quartet enter, apparently trailing the Senshi. Chibi-Usa stumbles upon them and some comedy ensues before she and Mamoru rejoin their group.

Back at Dracul's mansion, Le Fay is looking at the wedding dress. Vampir enters, still disgruntled about Le Fay trying to mother her. Vampir takes the dress and is about to leave when Le Fay tells her that her mother was killed by her father for falling in love with a vampire. Vampir had been under the impression that she had committed suicide. Le Fay expresses her hate for human beings. Gilles de Rais also throws in his lot with Le Fay's hatred for humanity, noting that humans will kill their own great heroes and children for their selfish desires.

Lilith enters and asks about Dracul's progress. Le Fay tells her that the Samael Sword was broken and asks why Dracul has not yet revived. Lilith informs them that Dracul is on the path from the underworld, but the Ginzuishou stands in his way. Gilles de Rais states that with tonight's lunar eclipse, its power will be weakened, but he is concerned about the power of the Sailor Senshi as a group. Le Fay briefly talks strategy; without Uranus, Jupiter, and Mars, the Sailor Senshi don't amount to much. As Gilles de Rais' sword matures, Lilith states that Vulcan is drawing near. With her power, she can steal the Ginzuishou. Vampir asks her for confirmation that her mother will be revived with its power. She tells Le Fay that she will have no need of her when her mother is revived. As she leaves, Lilith muses that a "mother" is an enigma. Astarte enters and states that there is another enigma sleeping in the graveyard of Dracul Castle - one that even those living there don't know about. A bell sounds, signaling that the Sailor Senshi have arrived, and the villains scatter.

de Brinvilliers introduces the mansion as her grandmother's home. Usagi is cold and hungry, and it's currently raining outside. Haruka mentions that it's a lot like Count Dracul's mansion from last time. The power goes out. Mandrake and the Quartet use the opportunity to sneak in, but Rei uses Akuryo Taisan to expose them. Lilith enters, along with Gilles de Rais, who is now wearing a suit of armor. The Senshi attempt to transform, but fail because of the presence of the Samael flasks. Lilith attacks, but Sailor Venus counters ("Traditional The Grace ~Ai no Arashi~ (Storm of Love)"). de Brinvilliers joins the fight. Vampir and Le Fay enter and knock Venus down, but she points out that vampires can't live without humans. The rest of the Senshi transform and enter to help her ("21st Century Koi no Senshi ja Irarenai (Can't Just Be Soldiers of Love)").

Gilles de Rais draws the Samael Sword, but he still can't use it properly. Tuxedo Mask enters, scuffles with him, and Sailor Moon picks up the sword. The Samael Quartet enter, chanting the dream chant. Sailor Moon doesn't want to fight them and does her best to resist their attack. Sailor Chibi-Moon suddenly enters and reveals that the Quartet are offshoots of her. Astarte enters, and Lilith introduces her as Dark Cain. An all-out fight ensues, which only ends when Sailor Moon uses Moon Spiral Heart Attack to break up the fighting. Dark Cain opens Dracul's coffin and brings him all the way out of his sleep. Dracul arises and asks where the Ginzuishou is. Sailor Moon wants to talk to him, but he doesn't respond and draws the Samael Sword, appearing to side with the antagonists. They will all meet at a temple for the final confrontation.

The Senshi regroup, but they hear a voice saying "I Am that I Am" (a name of God in the Hebrew Bible). Sailor Moon uses Moon Gorgeous Meditation to get them to reveal themselves, but to seemingly no avail. Jupiter, Uranus, and Mars realize that their time is running out, and the Senshi resolve to fight ("Sailor War! 2001"). The voice says that it will fight with them, and it guides them to Dark Cain's temple. Both sides begin the final confrontation ("We'll Be the Last Victory").

Dark Cain introduces this temple as the place where Eden once was. Sailor Moon tries to ask Astarte who is within her, but is attacked for her trouble. She tries to refute Vampir's claims about Dracul's death, but Dracul ends the discussion by saying that talking is futile. Mars, Jupiter, and Uranus, attempt an attack, but they finally succumb to the vampire curse. They rise under Vampir's control. Neptune protects Moon from Uranus and resolves to take all of Uranus's attacks, because she doesn't want to live if she has to fight Uranus. Moon offers to give Vampir the Silver Crystal because she doesn't want to fight her friends. She tries to appeal to Vampir's humanity, since Vampir protected Chibi-Usa and the Quartet.

Mandrake has come around to humans and reveals that he grew where Joan of Arc died. Sailor Moon reminds him of her, so Gilles de Rais mustn't let her die. Lilith strikes Mandrake down. Astarte reveals that she made the undead - they're homunculi meant to fight humans so that Dark Cain could destroy the world as quickly as possible. Le Fay takes an attack meant for Vampir and realizes that Dracul knew that this fighting was pointless. She apologizes to Vampir before dying.

Dracul calls Dark Cain out and reveals that his plan is to die along with everything else. Cain responds by using his power to manipulate the Quartet, who he intends to use as demons from now on. Sailor Mercury has had enough ("Drive Me the Mercury"). She and Moon call on Cain to release Astarte. Cain refers to Dracul as the brother he murdered and mentions that he needed a 'trick' to kill everything. The Senshi take attack after attack, and Moon refuses to give up. Dracul asks why they keep on fighting, and Moon responds that it's because humans are weak. Gilles de Rais defends her from Dark Cain's attack and calls her "Jeanne". As he is dying, he draws the Orleans Piercer, a sword he made for Joan of Arc, from the Samael Sword. de Brinvilliers also dies from Dark Cain's attack.

Vampir screams at Dracul. Dracul says that as long as humans exist, the vampires will be destroyed. He takes the holy sword and raises it against Cain, demanding to know how he has so much power. Vampir realizes that Death Vulcan is involved - that was the real "trick". Before Dark Cain can attack again, Sailor Chibi-Moon attacks with the Samael Quartet, who have now transformed into Sailor Senshi - the Sailor Quartet. The power of Vulcan allowed them all to transform. They attack, and the Silver Crystal shines ("The Last Change - 21st Century"). On Dracul's advice, Vampir uses her blood and the sign of the cross to cure Uranus, Jupiter, and Mars of the vampire curse. Mandrake and Tuxedo Mask enter, and Tuxedo Mask reveals that Vulcan is a multiple star.

Cain summons Vulcan, and it approaches Earth. The Senshi are determined to stop him and save Astarte as the final battle begins ("FIRE"). Sailor Moon purifies Lilith and transforms into Eternal Sailor Moon to defeat Cain. Dracul warns that Dark Cain will not disappear unless the world and/or Dracul does. Humans are not the only ones inhabiting this world, and if its orbit changes, Death Vulcan will come. Sailor Moon recalls her foreboding dream ("An Evil Dream"). Before the curtain falls, a voice states that man does not understand the Solar System, but most of all, it does not understand the darkness in people's hearts.

    Last Dracul Saishuu Shou ~Chou Wakusei Death Vulcan no Fuuin~ (Last Dracul Final Chapter ~The Seal of the Super-Planet Death Vulcan~

Act 1

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/001_4.jpg
The show opens on Sailor Moon standing in the ruins of an abandoned church. She recounts the events of the two previous shows as she is joined by the rest of the Sailor Senshi. They now have to contend with the planet Vulcan, a multiple star that is both scorching hot and at absolute zero. Moon then sings the final chorus of "The Last Change".

In a ruined mausoleum, three figures (the Death Nightmares) can be seen in shadow. They exposit that no one knows that the light causes darkness, darkness gives birth to the light, and that a world full of darkness will proceed to destroy a world full of light. A man with a staff (Magi Saint Germain) declares that he will lead half of this world to ruin. Dark Cain confirms that all of the Undead he created are now destroyed and have returned to soil. The Nightmares speak of a "zero world". Saint Germain says that it will come soon, but Cain says that there is one "eyesore" left: the plants. Saint Germain assures him that he has a plan to take out the Mandragora by way of using a "pistil".

Once it strikes midnight, Dark Cain commands Death Vulcan to turn towards Earth. Saint Germain and the Nightmares begin a magical incantation, but are interrupted by the howl of a small werewolf. They are surprised to see that one survived, and Dark Cain orders them to exterminate it. Saint Germain tries, but his attack is repelled. Cain tries next, but is interrupted by Count Dracul, Vampir, and Mandrake. Saint Germain points out that each time Dracul and Cain fight, it will end in a draw. He offers to trade the lycan child for Mandrake. Mandrake engages in some combat puns and gets the lycan child away from the antagonists. In the ensuing scuffle, Vampir comes face to face with Le Fay. Le Fay knocks her down and laughs; according to Dracul, she has turned back into a Nightmare. Cain attacks, but the lycan child nullifies it. After doing so, she collapses. Cain tries to approach her, but Vulcan intervenes. Cain refers to Dracul as "Abel", and says that although their fight may end in a draw, he must proceed with destroying "this pitiful thing". He casts a dark spell. In the darkness, Le Fay declares that she must feast on dreams; humans who live and dream must suffer. She vows to give Vampir a nightmare before disappearing.

Mandrake, Dracul, Vampir, and the lycan child are now alone in the mausoleum. Mandrake notes that just about anyone could be manipulated now. Vampir asks Dracul what the Nightmares are. He explains that Nightmares are demons who feast on the dreams in humans' hearts. They have no bodies of their own, so they covet humans' bodies. They weaken humans' hearts with their nightmares and drag their souls into the underworld. The lycan child comes to. Dracul says that the child will be a target, and approaches her with the intent to kill. Dracul recognizes the child as a vampire, and says that Vampir is the only one who can kill it. Vampir refuses. Dracul tells her to think on how her kindness is really mercilessness before storming out. Vampir vents about her father never telling her anything and never saying what is really important. If she doesn't do it, he will, so she prepares to kill the child. Mandrake intervenes, and Vampir loses her nerve, instead entrusting the child to him. She leaves to convince Dracul to not kill the lycan child.

Mandrake wonders if what Dracul said was right. The child asks if "those two from the castle" are gone, and Mandrake is surprised that she can speak. She believes that Dracul and Vampir are scary and awful, and tells Mandrake that her father told her to never speak to them. According to her, all of the other lycan children are gone. She was supposed to meet her mother here, but she too has gone. She asks Mandrake where everyone went and why. Mandrake tries to console her by telling her not to worry and that everyone will definitely come. He offers to take her on a trip for the time being, and suggests that she leave a note for her parents. He asks her name, and she introduces herself as Levy. Mandrake and Levy hear the sound of waves. In comes Mandrako, who introduces herself as Mandrake's little sister who has been away in Japan. Levy and Mandrake are headed for Japan as well, and the trio set off together.

The Senshi meet up in a park in Azabu ("Wake Up Shining"). The Outer Senshi are planning on going to Monaco. Chibi-Usa wants to go, and Haruka jokes that she won't be allowed there. Ami is nervous after how badly their last trip went, but Setsuna reassures her that it will be fine since they are paying for the trip themselves. Mamoru asks Haruka if she'll be competing in the Grand Prix. Hotaru says that they'll bring back souvenirs for everyone, but Chibi-Usa is upset that she's being left behind. Usagi chides her, saying that if she's going to be so selfish, she might as well go back to the 30th century - but Chibi-Usa can't go back. The school bell rings, and the Inner Senshi leave so that they aren't late to school. Chibi-Usa is still upset and she snaps at Hotaru. Mamoru tries to take her elsewhere, and she snaps at Setsuna as well. She calms down when Mamoru takes her to an amusement park, and tries to rub that in the Outer Senshi's faces as she leaves.

As soon as Chibi-Usa and Mamoru leave, Haruka begins to talk about their mission as the Outer Senshi. Apparently, time-space has been distorting for about a month, and a cold vapor similar to that of the Ice Age has began emanating from Europe. Something appears to be intercepting sunlight on its way to Earth. Setsuna uses the Garnet Orb to open the Time-Space Door, but to no avail. This has been caused by Death Vulcan entering Earth's orbit. The Outer Senshi resolve to leave, but they are interrupted by Usagi and Makoto, who overheard their conversation. Haruka doesn't want Usagi to interfere, but Usagi holds her ground, saying that the people who get left behind are in pain too. She can't stand it when people are hurt for her sake. Rei walks back in as well. Usagi talks about loneliness, and the Outers respond with talking about how they were always thinking of their princess when they were far away and alone. She is their ray of light, and they will sacrifice everything for that. They leave, and Setsuna asks Usagi to forgive them. Usagi tries to go after them, but Makoto blocks her and Rei says that they're entrusting the planet to her. Usagi says that she knows, and that she regrets talking about her loneliness.

The rest of the Senshi enter as they are being accosted by a biker gang. Usagi doesn't want to transform because then the Outer Senshi will come back. They try to fight the gang off, but are not able to do much damage when not transformed. Magi Saint Germain appears and asks them to transform so that he can measure their power. Usagi and Minako respond by insulting his gaudy outfit. The gang and the Senshi run back and forth for a bit while Saint Germain keeps insisting that the girls transform. The girls respond with an akanbe. Saint Germain uses an explanation of akanbe to segue into an explanation of magical words and items, all the while casting a spell on each of the Senshi as he talks to Usagi. Usagi tries an incantation of desserts, which works, and an incantation of things she hates, which backfires. Saint Germain once again demands that she transforms, but is interrupted by a rose. Tuxedo Mask enters and a skirmish ensues. Chibi-Usa transforms, and she and Tuxedo Mask attack together.

A voice asks, "Shall we get serious?" and a more serious fight breaks out. Someone rides in on a motorcycle and helps to fight off the biker gang. Vampir reveals herself and explains that Death Vulcan has entered Earth's orbit. She doesn't care about what happens to the humans, but she is furious with Cain. Saint Germain refers to one of the bikers as Cain. Sailor Moon enters and tries to use Moon Healing Escalation on the biker, but it is absorbed. He removes his helmet to reveal himself as Cain, but he's actually an illusion. The Nightmares appear and introduce themselves as Roi Malkuth, Elyon Yesod, and Olam Tiphareth. Moon recognizes Olam as Le Fay.

Saint Germain and the Nightmares ask Death Vulcan for power so that they can weaken the Senshi. Everyone hears Vulcan's voice, once again introducing himself as "I am that I am". It won't be long until he has arrived. Chibi-Moon is knocked down and the Nightmares chant a spell that traps the Senshi in a nightmare, rendering them helpless. They try to to force the star seeds from their hearts as a form of torture to get Sailor Moon to give up the Ginzuishou. Sailor Moon can hold out no longer and gives up the Ginzuishou so that her friends will not be hurt. Saint Germain offers the crystal to Death Vulcan, who does not seem particularly impressed by it. Death Vulcan orders that Moon, Chibi-Moon, and Tuxedo Mask be brought to Dark Cain's mausoleum, along with Vampir, and they are whisked away with magic.

The Inner Senshi are alone and upset that their star seeds were defiled. They want to tell Haruka and the Outer Senshi about what has happened, but they can't. Rei and Makoto try to transform, but it doesn't work. Minako proposes that they all go to Vulcan anyway in order to try and change its orbit somehow. They try to use their powers to transport themselves there. They are approached by the benevolent personification of Vulcan, who explains that their star seeds can never be defiled; rather, they must overcome their weaknesses. Death Vulcan taunts them and challenges them to come to his planet.

In Dracul's Castle, Usagi, Mamoru, and Chibi-Usa have lost their transformations. Vampir welcomes them to her home. She doesn't know why they aren't at the mausoleum and chalks it up to her father not telling her anything. Chibi-Usa asks where the others are. Vampir calls Usagi out for her naïvet&eacute, since it will come back to bite her. Usagi berates herself for not being strong enough to use the Ginzuishou properly; she doesn't know the full extent of its power. She starts to wonder about what would happen if someone else had the Ginzuishou. Vampir tells her that probably has it because the crystal chose her. She can see why people gather around Usagi; even someone as cold as she is can feel that warmth. She then vents about her father's coldness and why he hasn't told her anything aru what is going on. Mamoru tries to chime in with the fact that Cain is Dracul's brother, but Usagi and Chibi-Usa both tell him that now is not the best time to bring that particular point up. Vampir hears someone coming and tells everyone to hide.

The Mandrakes and Levy arrive. Mandrake has trouble finding the underground entrance to go to Japan so that Sailor Moon can help them with her Ginzuishou. Dracul enters and tells them that the entrance is closed because Vampir isn't allowed to come back from Japan. He wants it all to end first. Magi Saint Germain enters, and everyone comes out from their hiding places. Vampir blames Dracul for not telling her anything, and they quarrel about her new style of dress. She also yells at Mandrake for calling her a "twisted disobedient daughter". Saint Germain then reveals that Usagi does not have the Ginzuishou. Dracul, Vampir, and Levy all call her an idiot. Saint Germain wants Dracul to open the underground path. Cain appears and reveals that his domain is beneath the castle. He uses his power to freeze over the Dark Tablet, which gives Dark Vulcan a physical form. Cain, the Nightmares, and Saint Germain utter a magical incantation. The Samael Sword shines, and Death Vulcan appears.

Both Vulcans sing about their torn destiny and their place in the Solar System ("Itan no Juusei (Heretic Multiple Star)"). Death Vulcan wants to obliterate Earth and become the supreme ruler of the universe. Dark Cain sends the good Vulcan away and reveals his intent to disappear along with Earth. The Outer Senshi enter and have no intention of letting either of them continue ("Chikyuu! Crisis Yurusumaji (Earth! Unforgivable Crisis)"). Pluto is about to stop time in order to put a stop to Cain and Death Vulcan's plans, but she is interrupted by Usagi and Chibi-Usa. Magi Saint Germain reveals that he has the Ginzuishou, and the Outer Senshi are upset with Usagi for hurting the Senshi like this. Dark Cain intends to seal everyone in the mausoleum, and casts a spell to take away their ability to move. Usagi, Chibi-Usa, and Mamoru are trapped in the magic circle and are attacked, and Usagi refuses to give up. Saint Germain starts to lose patience with this. Mandrake enters to help, but Mandrako takes Levy hostage. The planet Vulcan's angle changes. Dark Vulcan says that he will show Cain his planet, and everyone is transported there ("Ankoku no Sonnet (Sonnet of Darkness)").

Death Vulcan reveals that his plan is to both freeze and burn the planet to death, and taunts the captured Senshi with the slowly freezing Earth. When Minako asks why they hate humans, a Nightmare replies that it is because God chose the humans. The Nightmares explain that long ago, Earth was only light. Then, the humans, drowning in their own knowledge, were corrupted. God allowed Vulcan to appear in order to cleanse and purify the Earth. Heaven chose Abel, so Cain killed him. The Silver Millenium interrupted Earth's destruction, which kept Death Vulcan from becoming the ruler of the Solar System. Vulcan appears and asks how long Death Vulcan intends to continue on like this. Death Vulcan reveals that the Ginzuishou destroyed the planet Vulcan and separated it into two, hence the two personifications of the planet. Vulcan reveals that she was Sailor Astarte. However, she could not save Sheba Shingetsu Astarte. Death Vulcan is about to use the Ginzuishou to destroy Vulcan, but Princess Serenity appears, carrying her own Crystal. She says that Death Vulcan will be unable to use the Ginzuishou because it chooses its wielder. She then uses its power to transport the captured Senshi back to Earth.

Act 2

Usagi, Mamoru, Chibi-Usa, Vampir, Mandrake, and Levy are in the church ruins. Chibi-Usa wants to go home, and they all talk and cry for a bit. Usagi is sure that Mandrako is under a spell of some sort, but Mamoru is more suspicious, suggesting that she may have been pretending. Everyone lies down as Vampir talks. She points out that there is a lot of royalty here - two kings and two princesses. She says that Levy will be a bridge between the races, which is why Dark Cain fears her. There seems to be one of everyone, like Noah's Ark. She maintains that the mausoleum cannot seal away the seeds of a race. Dracul enters and explains that he and Vampir are the vampires who can live like humans. Vampirism is not linked to blood, it is linked to a holy power of staying alive. Vampir's uniqueness also makes her a target, and he implies that he was trying to keep her safe. Usagi suggests that Vampir might have a mission, along with everything else on the planet.

They see a shooting star and hear the Senshi's voices as they are transported back from Vulcan. Vulcan presents the transformed Inner Senshi as a "gift" from Princess Serenity, who saved their star seeds. Even with the Time-Space Door out of commission, the Ginzuishou called to itself across time. Cain miscalculated with his plan to obtain the Ginzuishou. Usagi comedically claims that she knew that all along, and Mercury earnestly asks her to never hand over the Ginzuishou again. Usagi uses the Ginzuishou and transforms into Sailor Moon ("The Last Change"). The Outer Senshi have been sealed away, so the Senshi go to Cain's mausoleum.

Vampir asks if Mandrake will go after them, but he is still crestfallen after Mandrako's betrayal. Levy tries to console him, but is not able to be of much help. Cain enters and claims that he is of the same race as Vampir. She says that may be so, but she will not forgive him. Mandrako enters and asks Mandrake why he allies himself with the humans when they were the ones who destroyed their race. He answers that it is because they were born from humans' tears. The Nightmares enter and taunt them. Dracul enters before they can corrupt Vampir. She refuses to turn on people, and Dracul has had enough with the manipulations. A battle ensues ("Akuma no Ragnarok (Devil's Ragnarok)"). The Nightmares exposit that God ordered humans to kneel, but they rebelled, making them the "opponents" (i.e. demons). Dracul points out that Cain did not, in fact, write the Bible, though he did create these "succubi". The Nightmares chain up Vampir and Cain uses a dark spell to take everyone else away as Death Vulcan can be heard laughing.

Cain and Dracul are left alone. Dracul asks if Vampir has been saved, but Cain evades the question. Cain threatens to seal Dracul away again, but Dracul calls him a fool and tells him to stop making a display of the Samael Sword. It was Dracul's, and was made to be sacrificed to God. Dracul's sword was the one chosen by Heaven, not Cain's, confirming that the holy sword within the Samael Sword was made by Dracul. Cain claims this was because of Dracul's knowledge. Cain also claims that his being here is the result of wisdom and knowledge, rather than magic. Death Vulcan prepares for the Dark Tablet to arrive.

When Vulcan was split in two, it used its last power to carve a seal into the earth for the Ultimate Wisdom. Civilization was created with just a little bit of it. Cain found it 2,000 years later, and took another 5,000 to decipher and understand it. Dracul asks if he intends to wage the final battle using it, and Vulcan confirms that it is what they both want. Dracul asks if he intends for this world to become a contradiction like him, but Death Vulcan points out that Dracul is a contradiction too. The heavens chose Dracul, but he was killed. He became the ruler of the underworld to create dark in a world of light. He was at the head of the vampire clan, but humanity did not accept them.

Cain says that Dracul, too, has been used. Death Vulcan says that the three of them should join forces to become the perfect composition. Dracul wonders if he would be at the bottom of said triangle, which would be "unstable". Death Vulcan explains that Cain will destroy life, Death Vulcan will destroy the planet, and Dracul will create a new world of darkness. Dracul points out that Cain crossed into his castle to create homunculi. For that, Dracul decided on a plan for punishment for Cain. The punishment is that they both share the same destiny. Cain says that Dracul's punishment has been planned, and it goes dark.

Vampir has been brought in and chained up. The villains intend to kill both Vampir and Dracul in this sanctuary along with Mandrake and Levy. Pluto and Saturn show up to use Dark Dome Close, but it doesn't quite work. It's enough to break the seal, though, and they are joined by Uranus and Neptune. They use the Sailor Planet Attack. The magical barrier weakens their attack, and Death Vulcan uses the Dark Tablet to weaken them. He intends to collect their star seeds in the tablet. Levy howls to gather the wolves of the forest, and in so doing, inadvertently reveals that she was the High Lycan's child. Cain attacks and seriously injures her. She resolves to give Vampir her blood, and manages to stumble over to her to give her a little bit of blood before collapsing. Vampir breaks her chains and the magic barrier, replacing it with one created by her own heart. She fights off Death Vulcan before the rest of the Senshi arrive.

Sailor Moon uses Rainbow Moon Heart Ache to bring Vampir out from her frenzy. Vulcan appears and says that Levi is just sleeping. Death Vulcan voices his resentment at never being allowed to be a part of the Solar System. Vulcan warns him that his ambitions will destroy his body. Moon asks Death Vulcan what he wants. He answers that he wants the whole universe. Cain wants a zero world. Moon says that she will make both come true, if that is what they wish. However, that is not what each of them truly wishes for. Dracul enters and says that they have lost. The tidal forces caused by Vulcan's approach shake the Earth.

Moon refers to Death Vulcan as a friend and the Senshi state that Queen Serenity believe that there was a tenth planet out there. Death Vulcan is embittered by Serenity protecting only the Earth while his planet died. The Senshi explain that they help each other. Moon realizes that she felt Vulcan's pain from the other side of the sun, and asks Vulcan to forgive her for not being a good princess. Vulcan states that the pain Moon felt was their pain of being torn apart. Death Vulcan claims that no one can understand that pain. Moon says that the pain is there because the stars in everyone's hearts try to become one. Death Vulcan is still resolved to fight. Vampir says that it's the Ragnarok of the gods, and Cain says that it's the final battle between stars and planets. The battle begins, and Sailor Moon transforms into her Eternal form ("21st Century Koi no Senshi Ja Irarenai (Can't Just Be Soldiers of Love)").

Mandrako is released from the spell she was under, and can't remember how she got there. Cain comments that this must be as far as Saint Germain's magic goes. Dracul asks if Cain really thinks he'll disappear. Cain asks what a Senshi victory means. As long as Dracul lives, Cain can't die, and he is angry at the paradox. Vampir scoffs at the man who called himself history's greatest and calls him a "pitiful madman". Death Vulcan taunts Moon with the fact that Cain's conduct of life runs counter to hers. She says it is okay to go back to the past. Everyone was born in the light, and that is why they love the star in their hearts. She offers Cain the chance to go back, and he asks her what will happen if he does. She doesn't know, but believes that there's still a way to fix everything. She implores him to just go back. Death Vulcan butts in with the assertion that stars are also born from darkness and have no light. Vulcan says that stars don't shine all on their own; they shine because they have light. Death Vulcan says that a star that has not been chosen cannot shine, and he is clearly envious of how Moon continues to shine. The Universe is manipulated by her light, something he both respects and hates. Death Vulcan wants to destroy the Ginzuishou.

Tuxedo Mask yells at them to stop this pointless battle. Death Vulcan responds by using the tablet to attack him in order to hurt the Earth by way of the Golden Crystal. He turns on the Senshi next. Uranus and Mars attack, but he repels it. Vulcan stops him from extracting the Golden Crystal. The Golden Crystal came to Earth to protect it from people going after the Ginzuishou, and Vulcan's mission was to protect them both. Death Vulcan strikes at Vulcan, and the Senshi protect her. Death Vulcan tries to provoke them into attacking, but Moon can't bring herself to do it because she still views him as a friend. Before Death Vulcan can attack again, Dracul steps in and asks how a torn planet has such power. He reveals the Nightmares, who did not, in fact, disappear.

The Nightmares devised this battle to purify the "mistakes" on the planet. Cain asks if Dracul is the Abel he killed. Dracul says that if he understands that, then he may go to the Underworld. The Nightmares use their chanting on Tuxedo Mask, and the Senshi step in to defend him. Death Vulcan tries to attack, but Vampir intervenes, calling herself History's Greatest Vampire. Olam attacks her, and tells her that all she remembers is the hatred. Vampir kills her and tells her that all she remembered was the love, calling her Le Fay. Dracul says that he was turn this fallen angel back to light. He rises up and sentences Cain and the Nightmares to rest in the underworld until the final judgment. Vampir screams "FATHER!" as he seemingly disappears.

With them out of the way, Death Vulcan is ready to destroy everything. Moon appeals to Serenity to release the Golden Crystal. She does, and the final battle begins ("FIRE"). Vulcan grabs Death Vulcan and his tablet, and Moon and Chibi-Moon use Starlight Honeymoon Double Therapy Kiss to seal them both into one tablet. Eternal Sailor Moon then transforms into Princess Serenity. After the battle, Serenity says that Vampir has the power to purify the earth. Mandrake is a plant sovereign, who can bring forth life. Vampir asks Serenity about her father. Serenity says that light and darkness are one, and they have the same mission. She then leads the company in singing "Ginga no Sanctuary (Sanctuary of the Galaxy)".

    Tanjou! Ankoku no Princess Black Lady (Birth! Black Lady, The Princess of Darkness

Act 1

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/blacklady_front.jpg
The show opens on Sailor Pluto at the Space-Time Door ("Forbidden Hades"). Chibi-Usa runs in, wearing the Ginzuishou, and Pluto introduces herself to her. Pluto asks her why she is here. Chibi-Usa is upset, saying that she is nothing like her mother and gets made fun of. She thinks that she will be tiny forever. Pluto comforts the upset Chibi-Usa and presents her with a time key and shows her the "Abracadabra" charm. Just then, the Crystal Palace is attacked, and Chibi-Usa runs away, crying that it wasn't her fault. Uranus and Neptune enter and inform Pluto that Neo Queen Serenity has been sealed away, and Crystal Tokyo has been destroyed. They are joined by Saturn, and the Outer Senshi prepare for the fight to come as Chibi-Usa goes through the Space-Time Door ("Broken Möbius"). They realize that she has gone through the door too late to stop her, and Pluto calls after Small Lady.

In 21st century Tokyo, strange figures gather around a park bench. A passing old man is alarmed at the strange display and runs away yelling about aliens. The next day, the Inner Senshi gather in a park ("Private Mystery Circle"). The group is abuzz with rumors of a UFO sighting the previous night. Rei shares that the previous night, the prayer flame went out. Just for a moment, before it went out, she saw a black moon sigil. A strange light appears in the sky, and Chibi-Usa lands in the 21st century and introduces herself as Usagi. Usagi, incensed by this, mentions that her name is Usagi. The girl demands the Ginzuishou while brandishing a gun. Mamoru distracts her with the "hey look over there" ploy by claiming that there are choux cream puffs, and Rei takes the gun away. She jumps into Mamoru's arms, apparently somehow familiar with him. They are joined by HyuruHyuru Ruggerman, who engages in some physical comedy. The sky darkens, and he turns into Doki Doki Ruggerman. The comedy scene is interrupted by three sisters: Calaveras, Petz, and Cooan, who demand the "Rabbit"'s Ginzuishou. Ruggerman gets a hold of Chibi-Usa, but Sailor Moon arrives and attacks him. Ruggerman was a droid created by Petz. The two subordinates with the sisters move to attack, but are ordered to stay back since they are Saphir's perfect droids. The sisters quarrel before retreating; they mention that they are of the Black Moon Clan before they disappear.

The group ask the girl if she knows anything about them. She asks if Moon is the Sailor Moon, and begs her to save her mother in the 30th century. She then introduces herself by her full name and reveals that she is the future kid. When pressed for more information on how she got there, she becomes visibly distressed when talking about the destruction of Crystal Tokyo and runs away screaming about the dark Crystal coming.

On Planet Nemesis, the Black Moon Clan sings about their motives in rewriting history ("Kekki! Hangyaku Ichizoku (Rise Up! Rebel Clan)"). They see the people in a world without aging or strife as "fat" and "weak", and wish to overthrow the rule of the white moon. Demand is also fixated on Neo Queen Serenity, even in her past form. Apparently the droid was sent on Demand's whim, but Saphir is not particularly pleased. Petz tries to take the fall, but Demand brushes it off. Esmeraude proposes going to get the Ginzuishou. The Ayakashi sisters protest, so Demand suggests that they aim for one kill each. Wiseman enters and asks about the child, but Tilmun isn't comfortable going after a child, so Wiseman sends two children.

When everyone leaves, Demand and Saphir talk. Saphir talks about his plan to replace humanity with droids, and doesn't approve of invading so abruptly. After a brief outburst, Demand reminds him of when they were children and wanted to see flowers. Saphir doesn't trust Wiseman and warns him of the third eye. That sets Demand on a rant about Neo Queen Serenity's eyes - he will have Serenity, no matter what. He leaves.

Esmeraude enters and suggests that they work together to remove the source of Demand's clouded judgment. Saphir leaves, and Tilmun and the kids show up. She orders Tilmun to send the two children, who are eager to do so. Since Chibi-Usa is a "half-breed", she proposes using the children to well up some emotions in her. Tilmun touches a nerve when it comes to Neo-Queen Serenity, and Esmeraude rants about her hatred of her before storming off. Tilmun and the children talk. The children were born on Nemesis, but don't have the black crescent mark. Tilmun does have half of a mark, though. The girls share a little bit of their sadness at being half-breeds and not fitting in. They want to live on earth because there are flowers there. Cooan fetches Tilmun for a strategy meeting, and the girls are left alone. Wiseman enters. He tells them about Small Lady's loneliness, and encourages them to use their loneliness and sadness to lead her to Wiseman. After he leaves, they sing about wanting to see Earth ("Niji-Iro no Monochrome (Rainbow Monochrome)").

At Azabu Silver Crystal Hall, the Inner Senshi rehearse for a performance contest ("La Soldier"). The rehearsal is not going particularly well; the girls argue about mistakes in the choreography. Usagi wonders if they'll be recognized as the Sailor Senshi by performing "La Soldier". Mamoru and Chibi-Usa come to watch them rehearse, and Chibi-Usa complains that everyone is just fighting. The hosts, Roppongi Tilmun and Azabu Kouan, enter and usher everyone off since their rehearsal time has ended. HyuruHyuru Baseballer comes on next and rehearses briefly. His act is followed by Esmeraude entering with her "twin daughters" as an act while she and other members of the Black Moon Clan dance backup in disguise ("La Soldier - Full Orchestral Ver."). The Senshi object to Esmeraude throwing money around, and Minako blurts out that Usagi has the Ginzuishou.

The Black Moon Clan reveal themselves and attack. HyuruHyuru Baseballer joins the fight as well. During the scuffle, Tilmun gets a hold of Usagi, but is interrupted by a rose. Tuxedo Mask enters and fights the enemies off ("Tuxedo Versus"). In the confusion, Aaron and Manna get Chibi-Usa to escape with them. Mars enters next, and Cooan targets her, followed by Jupiter, who is targeted by Petz. Mercury is next, and Calaveras decides to engage her. Calaveras then manages to immobilize Mars and Jupiter with her powers. Venus joins the fight and breaks the spell before taking on Tilmun ("Traditional The Grace ~Ai no Arashi~ (Storm of Love)"). Venus also defeats HyuruHyuru Baseballer with a Crescent Beam. Sailor Moon finally enters and joins the fight. Esmeraude is eager to take her on. The Senshi notice the energy from the Clan's earrings. Moon attempts to use Moon Healing Escalation, but it doesn't work. The Clan attack and Mars, Jupiter, and Mercury are at their mercy. They declare that they won't deal the final blow here on Demand's orders. Moon manages to deflect one of the Clan's attacks, injuring Esmeraude in the process. Esmeraude wonders how much power the Ginzuishou holds before the Clan disappears, leaving Moon with Venus and Tuxedo Mask. They realize that Chibi-Usa is missing.

Elsewhere, Chibi-Usa is with Aaron and Manna. She tells them about Sailor Moon, and they question her relationship with her mother. Chibi-Usa recalls a time when everyone forgot her birthday. Aaron and Manna discuss how parents are bad because they don't pay attention their children. Aaron wonders about the rose that she picked up from the earlier fight. The twins talk about their desire to live on Earth. Chibi-Usa says that her father will help them, and uses her time key to take them with her to Crystal Tokyo. Moon, Venus, and Tuxedo Mask manage to catch up to her as the time warp opens, and are transported as well.

On Nemesis, Saphir notices the time warp and the presence of several energies. Saphir deems it too dangerous to attack them for the Ginzuishou, but Demand wants to attack them anyway. Demand refuses to consider Earth his until he sees its ruler's corpse. The rest of the Clan return and report that they have captured the Senshi. Saphir wants to kill them out of caution. He tries to call Demand out for his recklessness, and gets slapped for his trouble. Wiseman enters and says that as long as the Ginzuishou exists, their Black Crystal won't be invincible. He comments on Esmeraude's injured hand just to rub salt into the wound. The Black Moon Clan go to the 30th Century to intercept the time travelers.

Moon, Venus, and Tuxedo Mask arrive at the Time-Space Door, where they are met by the Black Moon Clan, who attack Venus. Tilmun has finally gotten a pair of Black Crystal earrings. They fight, and Moon's attack doesn't work due to the energy of the Black Crystal. Pluto and the rest of the Outer Senshi arrive from the Time-Space Door and intervene. The fight begins again. It ends when Demand attacks and is introduced to the Senshi. He uses his third eye to immobilize Moon and capture her and Venus, leaving Tuxedo Mask to travel to the Crystal Palace with the Outer Senshi.

Chibi-Usa and the twins arrive at the Time-Space Door. Chibi-Usa calls for Pluto, but gets no response. Wiseman speaks to tell her that no one will answer her. He enters, talks to her about her parents' coldness, and tells her that they don't love her. He offers her everything she ever wanted - she will become a truly strong person. Chibi-Usa takes his hand, and the transformation begins. She disappears, and in her place stands the newly awakened Black Lady.

Act 2

On Planet Nemesis, Usagi sleeps on an altar in a white gown. Demand (now with a more prominent third eye) and the Black Moon Clan sing "Innocent Demand". Demand forces Usagi to wake up and rise from the alter. She demands to know if he is the one who attacked the future. Saphir explains what has happened and the Clan's motives. They see the extended lifespans granted by the Ginizuishou as blasphemy. Usagi stands her ground, and Demand demonstrates his psychic powers. He explains that the Clan is descended from rebels exiled to Nemesis by Neo-Queen Serenity. Usagi tries to transform, but fails. The Clan taunt her attempt, and Demand allows her to wander the castle as she pleases. She leaves to find her friends, and Demand leaves shortly thereafter.

There is dissatisfaction in the ranks of the Black Moon Clan. Saphir is not thrilled with Usagi being held on Nemesis, and Esmeraude is furious about Demand being so fixated on her. The Ayakashi Sisters taunt her for not killing Usagi when she had the chance. Saphir warns them that the planet is more dangerous than they know; lately, it appears as though it has a will of its own, and the Black Crystal's reaction has increased. A female voice claims that it is her power. She and Wiseman enter, and he refers to her as the "rabbit". She introduces herself as Black Lady, and declares that Wiseman's will is absolute. She reminds Saphir about wearing the Black Crystal earrings and calls him "useless" when he leaves. She tells Esmeraude to stay behind, since she's useless as well. She leaves with the rest of the Clan, leaving Esmeraude alone with Wiseman. She asks him for power, and he gives her a Black Crystal tiara that he claims will increase her power and beauty. It shocks her and she collapses as Wiseman taunts her for thinking that she could handle the Crystal's power. She rises with one arm now transformed into the Arm of the Bewitching Beast. Black Lady sings "Black Moon Signal".

The Outer Senshi and Tuxedo Mask arrive in the heart of the Crystal Palace. They find Neo-Queen Serenity's sleeping body, encased in crystal, and approached by Wiseman (who introduces himself as a mere fortune teller). He tells the story of a man with psychic power who was feared by Neo-Queen Serenity enough that she banished him to Planet Nemesis. Later on, a group of rebels was also exiled to Nemesis, and their descendants became the Black Moon Clan. Neptune and Saturn question how he managed to survive here when everything was destroyed, seeing through his ruse. The Black Moon Clan ambush them, and they fight. The Outer Senshi demand that they be taken to where Usagi is, and by their request, Wiseman transports them to Nemesis.

Usagi wanders the dungeons, looking for the Inner Senshi. She encounters Esmeraude, who explains that the Crystal is stealing Usagi's power and tells her that they are in the Dungeon of Darkness. Esmeraude attacks her, but Demand drives her off. Saphir enters and calls Demand out for also receiving power from Wiseman and giving Serenity higher priority than his clan. Saphir questions Wiseman's influence, but Demand claims that he will take care of him when the time is right. Demand and Esmeraude leave. Saphir lets Usagi continue to wander, but he lets her know that he wants her dead. She calls to her friends, and they hear her in their dungeon. Their power is being drained, and they are becoming frustrated. Usagi hears their voices as well. They see a rotted corpse in the dungeon and are distressed at the thought of dying in this dungeon. They try to call to Usagi again ("Minna no Ai wo Kaesenai (I Can't Return Everyone's Love)").

The Outer Senshi arrive with Tuxedo Mask. They help Sailor Moon transform by reminding her that the power of the Ginzuishou is the power of her heart. Saphir and Demand arrive with Saphir's droids, joined shortly thereafter by Esmeraude, and they fight. Sailor Moon arrives and Uses her attack to free the Inner Senshi. She warns Demand of the Dark Crystal's danger and maintains that the Ginzuishou is a Crystal of love and peace. Demand disagrees, saying that love and peace are illusions.

Black Lady enters with Aaron and Manna and introduces herself. She attacks the and immobilizes the Senshi, and shows them Crystal Tokyo as she throws Dark Crystals into the planet. Demand does not agree with this course of action, and Wiseman enters. He insists on getting the Ginzuishou. He immobilizes Demand and Saphir, and Black Lady forces the earrings onto Saphir to ensure his compliance. Sailor Moon protests, and Black Lady attacks again. Tuxedo Mask hears the voice of King Endymion, gathers his power, and uses Tuxedo La Smoking Bomber to break her attack. It works, but Tilmun grabs the rose and throws it away. Aaron and Manna find it and talk about how they want to see flowers. Esmeraude tries to get them to let it go, but they refuse. Pluto tries to get through to Black Lady, but she will not listen. She uses her power to control Tuxedo Mask and bring him to her, using him to strike Sailor Moon along the way.

The Dark Gate opens. Moon tries to attack, but Wiseman tells her that the gate will redirect it to the past. The Clan demands the Ginzuishou, and Moon gives it to them. Demand regains his senses, and he fights Saphir and Tilmun. The droids try to protect Saphir. Demand attacks Wiseman, but he just disappears, leaving behind his cloak. Black Lady reveals that his true form was Planet Nemesis itself. Everyone's power is drained, and the situation looks dire. Aaron and Manna give the roses to Tux, who snaps out of Black Lady's control. He takes Black Lady's Ginzuishou, but is attacked. Tilmun gives it to Demand, who now has the past and present Ginzuishou in his hands. He tries to touch them together, intending to destroy everything.

Pluto stops time, and Moon and Saturn take the crystals away from him. As the flow of time resumes, Pluto collapses, tells Black Lady the "abracadabra" charm, and dies. Black Lady begins to cry, triggering her transformation into Sailor Chibi-Moon ("Kono Kodou Kara Yoru wa Umarenai (Night Won't Be Born From This Pulse)"). Chibi-Moon tries to show Pluto her transformation, but Uranus sternly tells her that a soldier is at rest. Demand orders Saphir to give him the key to the fusion core. Death Phantom, now with a physical form, emerges from the Dark Gate. Moon attempts to use Moon Princess Halation, but he absorbs it. Death Phantom attacks Demand. Saphir dies protecting Demand, as does Esmeraude. Tilmun dies defending the kids and gives them a flower he found on Nemesis. Death Phantom kills Aaron and Manna as well. The Senshi (except Uranus, who objects) try to use Sailor Planet Attack, and it is absorbed as well. Death Phantom kills Saphir's droids. Uranus and Neptune are about to move in on Death Phantom, but Demand insists on going in himself. He berates Death Phantom for using the Black Moon Clan as mere tools. He manages to land a hit on Death Phantom, but it does not do very much damage. Death Phantom strikes him, and Demand declares himself king. Demand holds Death Phantom's body to create an opening for the Outer Senshi to send him back into the Dark Gate.

Neo-Queen Serenity awakens and sends Moon her power. The Senshi rally, and the final battle begins. The Senshi send their power to the Crystal Palace, and Eternal Sailor Moon arrives with Pluto, Chibi-Moon, and Tuxedo Mask. Demand uses his third eye headband to weaken Death Phantom before he is sent into the gate.

After the battle, Demand collapses, and he recalls a memory from his and Saphir's childhood. Moon says that his clan is waiting for him on Nemesis, and Demand sets off to return to his planet. Moon says that though there may be pretty flowers on Nemesis, Earth will have the prettiest ones. The Senshi sing "Moment Fatal".

    Ai no Sanctuary (Sanctuary of Love
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/7121.jpg
The show opens on the Inner Senshi gathering in a park in Azabu wearing matching jackets, joined later by the Outer Senshi in similarly matching jackets ("Set Me Free ~Hitomi wa Sora e~ (Eyes to the Sky)") The Inner Senshi talk about how the jackets were designed (Usagi was just a "nuisance"). Everyone is off to see Sensational Jaguar Mask, a pro wrestler, compete. Haruka and Michiru do not seem to know much about him. Chibi-Usa and Mamoru have not arrived yet, so Usagi stays behind to wait for them while the rest of the group goes on ahead to get autographs. Mamoru finally arrives, and he and Usagi flirt for a bit, and Usagi wants him to kiss her ("Negaeba Kiss! (If I Wish for a Kiss!)"). Chibi-Usa arrives and joins in, and both Usagi and Chibi-Usa ask for kisses. Haruka arrives to break up the nonsense, and Mamoru goes on ahead, followed by everyone else.

A figure enters and says that peace is for fools. He is joined by an army ("Dark Sirius Gundan (Dark Sirius Army)"). The army is from the Dark Sirius Star Cluster, and their aim is to take over the universe. Naturally, they target the Sailor Senshi and want to get Moon by herself to destroy her and take her Ginzuishou.

At Azabu Super Dome, the referee begins the Lucha Shooting World Champion Tournament. The match is being commented on by Kurozuki Hikaru. In the red corner is Sensational Jaguar Mask, the international world champion. In the blue corner is Black Sirius Scorpion, the "ultimate heel", along with his manager, Devil Miki. The girls get fired up. Miki's "long time rival", White Crow Ado, joins Hikaru in commentating on the match.

The fight begins. During the match, Scorpion draws a weapon of some kind and uses it to attack Jaguar. They continue to fight until Scorpion manages to pin him to the ground. It goes dark, and Hikaru talks about Orion's third star and the destruction of a land called Sirius. Scorpion starts dancing about the ring. Jaguar starts flailing as if he is about to fight back, but Scorpion has him in the Death Lock. After some more fighting, Scorpion removes Jaguar's mask and picks him up by his neck before dropping him to the mat and delivering the final blow.

Jaguar rises and begins to attack the audience before carrying off an audience member. Haruka and Rei go after him, and Hikaru yells to cancel the broadcast. Mamo also runs off and tells Chibi-Usa to stay behind, and Usagi goes with him. Another female audience member runs in screaming with what is ostensibly blood on her shirt before running away again. The Senshi who went to investigate come back, and Ado says that Jaguar Mask has vanished. The Senshi don't believe that Jaguar is a criminal, and begin to investigate. ("Take Out a Sirius Mystery"). Meanwhile, the Sirius is not particularly impressed by the Sailor Senshi. Chibi-Usa points out the army as villains to Hikaru, and he goofs off. The Senshi find Scorpion's mask and Jaguar's jacket, and they briefly accuse Hikaru. They want to call a policeman, but Hikaru gives them an emphatic no. As the promoter and commentator, he doesn't want negative attention on the event. Hikaru suggests that they transform in a rather roundabout way. In the meantime, the Senshi brainstorm. Usagi asks about getting Mamoru or a policeman to help them (which Hikaru refuses yet again). Hikaru then slips by exasperatedly asking "aren't you guys the Sailor Senshi?" Chibi-Usa screams, and runs in, followed by the villains.

Scorpion introduces himself as Dark Nibiru. He is of an ancient civilization from 6,000 years ago, and considers himself the correct owner of the Ginzuishou. He is interrupted by a rose as Tuxedo Mask enters and fights the Dark Sirius Army ("Tuxedo Versus"). Sailor Moon arrives and uses Moon Healing Escalation. It doesn't work. Nibiru attacks her, and she calls for everyone ("21st Century Koi no Senshi Ja Irarenai (Can't Just Be Soldiers of Love)"). Nibiru has Jaguar bring Chibi-Usa in. Hikaru protests that this wasn't what they agreed to. Jaguar has been brainwashed into becoming part of the army, now going by Dark Dogon. Tux calls to him to come to his senses, but gets captured by the army as well. Nibiru says that if they want the Crystal back, they will have to come to his planet: Dark Sirius. Pluto takes a key from her belt and throws it to Chibi-Usa, sending her and Tuxedo Mask to the future. The Senshi go after them to the future ("Sailor War! 2002").

Chibi-Usa and Tuxedo Mask are at the Space-Time Door. The army ambushes them, and they begin to fight ("Fukitsu na Kaze ~Fukkatsu wa Higeki no Zenchou~ (An Ominous Wind ~Revival is a Sign of Tragedy)"). They are joined by the Outer Senshi, and the fight continues. Nibiru then joins the fight, followed by the Inner Senshi, who enter one at a time. Finally, Super Sailor Moon and Chibi-Moon join the fight. Moon uses Moon Spiral Heart Attack, but it doesn't work. Uranus tries World Shaking, but it also doesn't work. Mercury realizes that the army is not actually physically there. Nibiru casts some kind of wind spell. Mars uses Burning Mandala, but it, too, is of no avail. Nibiru opens the door and Dark Dogon/Jaguar Mask enters. Nibiru uses an attack to knock down the Inner Senshi. Dogon takes the Inners' Star Seeds and tells the rest of the Senshi to come to Dark Sirius. Pluto and Uranus go after him as the door closes.

The remaining group is about to go after them, but Moon has her doubts and asks why they have to fight. She thinks that the Ginzuishou would be better off as the sun of Dark Sirius if it will bring everyone back. After some persuasion, she insists that she and Chibi-Moon should go alone, and they prepare to set off when they are interrupted by Hikaru stumbling out of the door.

They ask him what he knows about what is happening. He doesn't totally understand who the villains are. However, since childhood, he has been hearing some kind of pulse telling him to destroy mankind. But two years ago, He began hearing something else. He heard voices talking about how they had lost their shining light and that the Earth had stolen it. Apparently the voice was calling through telepathy powers from Orion. The pulse wanted him to hold out the light to Sirius, which is dark, even in the daytime. And then the army came, seeking their sun: the Ginzuishou. He doesn't understand what the pulse is asking of him or what his power is, and Sailor Moon seems to believe him. Nibiru appears and says that it's Kurozuki's 'final role'. He attacks him. Nibiru intends to send them into dark space, but Hikaru strikes back.

Moon is now in sub space, where the Senshi now are, weakened and defeated. Moon calls out. She finds the Senshi, close to death after having their Star Seeds removed. They manage to communicate with each other before the Inner Senshi die ("Sorezore no Elegy (Each One's Elegy)"). Uranus and Pluto use their talismans to help them in the sub space. Pluto opens the Time-Space Door and manages to bring the remaining Senshi, Tuxedo Mask, and Hikaru to their location. Moon asks about the Inners, but there is nothing that Pluto and Uranus can do about them. Hikaru feels the pulse again, and hears Nibiru's voice, asking why they were called to him. The army arrives, led by Dogon. Miki calls Hikaru a traitor. The army intends to kill him, but he smirks and laughs, saying that they are afraid of him. He monologues about a lonely boy on a monochrome road. He then transforms into Prince Demand and fights off Nibiru's army alongside the Senshi ("New Innocent Demand"). He immobilizes the army so that the Senshi can attack, and the Senshi defeat them.

Demand explains that he tried to speak from the future to Hikaru, who is a past form of himself. He says that Sailor Moon's greatest power is never leaving anyone alone. He opens the Time-Space door, revealing Sailor Venus, who is then joined by the rest of the Inner Senshi ("Over the Moon"). Moon and Venus enjoy their reunion and talk about how they will always be together. Neo-Queen Serenity appears and says that Dark Sirius hasn't been purified. Dark Nibiru appears and declares that the Senshi merely eliminated the satellites that surrounded him. He vows to steal their light, and the final battle begins ("FIRE"). Sailor Moon transforms into Eternal Sailor Moon, and Sensational Jaguar Mask joins in the fight as well. Nibiru is defeated, and Jaguar Mask leaves with the championship belt.

Moon gives a speech about how everyone has a tiny light within them, and if Sirius understands that, then it will become a shining star ("Densetsu Seitan (Legendary Birth)"). After the curtain call, the company sings "Ginga no Sanctuary (Sanctuary of the Galaxy)".

    Mugen Gakuen - Mistress Labyrinth (Infinity Academy - Mistress Labyrinth

Act 1

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/001_17.jpg
Two figures stand in a park in the Infinity District of Tokyo. A voice says that this world has a great deal of power. Here, they will begin their mission anew. The woman, Kaolinite, addresses the voice as Pharaoh 90. The man, Professor Tomoe, says that the Daimons he makes will conquer Earth for the Tau System. The voice says it feels a power similar to the Taioron Crystal within the planet's protection, and demands that they destroy the light that leads to ruin.

The scene transitions to the sound of bells and Usagi's voice. Usagi thinks that she hears wedding bells, and she and Mamoru meet in the park ("Usagi Love Magic"). Usagi thinks that Mamoru is proposing, but Mamo is confused by her behavior. It's actually 6 AM, and she is apparently still half-asleep. She hears bells again as Chibi-Usa walks in with an alarm clock. She tried to get Usagi awake with the sound, but it didn't work. They are joined by the rest of the Inner Senshi ("Unubore Shoujo ga Yatte Kita (The Conceited Girls Have Come!)"). The four girls leave for a day of fun in Azabu-Juuban. As Mamoru goes to follow them, he passes by Michiru, who drops a mirror. She comments on his eyes, noting that he must have been a prince in a past life. She apologizes for saying something weird. She is joined by Haruka, and they leave for school together.

Usagi and Mamoru are temporarily dazed at how cool the couple is. Usagi wonders where their uniforms are from. A classmate of hers, Hoshino Shintarou, enters and tells them they're from Infinity Academy. Usagi and Mamoru ask him for more information on Infinity Academy, and he explains it's a new school that's opened in the Infinity District. His older sister, Hanako, enters with his little sisters, Kibou and Seika, and explains that it's where "geniuses" have gathered. They leave to go to school, and Shintarou proceeds to be weird in front of Usagi, Mamoru, and Chibi-Usa.

A woman enters and says that the strangeness may be from the winds coming from the Infinity District. She strongly resembles Pluto to the point that Chibi-Usa calls her "Puu", but she introduces herself as Meiou Setsuna, a graduate student at Infinity Academy. She warns them to stay away from the area. As she is leaving, an Infinity Academy student catches up her to her and asks her for help. When the girl walks by Usagi, Usagi's brooch glows, and the girl suddenly turns into the Daimon Ganguro. Shintarou "transforms" into a hero from the Planet Grimm, but he is defeated without much effort on the Daimon's part. The Inner Senshi arrive and quickly defeat the Daimon. Apparently many monsters have been around lately, and they have all been Infinity Academy students. The group decides to split up to investigate.

Haruka, Michiru, and Setsuna enter. They are not please with the prospect of the Inner Senshi causing trouble. Setsuna goes to follow after Small Lady, and Haruka and Michiru stay behind and affirm that they won't allow even the princess to interfere with the mission before leaving..

At Tomoe Laboratories, the Death Busters continue with their plans to devour humanity and build their new holy land on Earth for Pharaoh 90 ("Isei Nottori Keikaku (Plan to Conquer the Foreign Star)"). The daimon Tomoe is currently working on is almost ready, and he prepares to put another egg into a host. As it stands, 90% of the implanted eggs mutate, but he daimon losses have allowed them to identify the Sailor Senshi. Tomoe thinks they will make good Hostie. The Witches 5 and Kaolinite set up their strategy going forward. The Witches 5 leave to put their plan into action. Hotaru enters the laboratory with difficulty breathing and rejects Kaolinite's attempts to help her. Professor Tomoe gives her an amulet, saying it was a family heirloom from Hotaru's mother. It appears to help with her symptoms.

In the Infinity District, the Inner Senshi go about investigating Infinity Academy while the Hoshinos (now joined by Barako) talk about the Ginzuishou and the Witches 5 prepare to lay the trap ("Triangle Secret"). While the Inner Senshi are off investigating elsewhere in Infinity Academy, Chibi-Usa wanders around, lost. She meets Hotaru, who feels as though someone is calling to her. Hotaru offers to help her, but collapses in a fit. Chibi-Usa tries to help her, and Hotaru feels better as soon as Chibi-Usa touches her. Hotaru hears someone coming, so she helps Chibi-Usa hide. The Inner Senshi find the place creepy, and Rei feels an aura. They are joined by Chibi-Usa, and the group is attacked by the Witches 5. The attack is interrupted by a rose, and Tuxedo Mask appears to fight the Witches 5 off ("Tuxedo Misson"). He attacks, and Kaolinite uses her magic to immobilize him.

Barako and Hanako intervene as the school "staff", joined by Kibou and Seika, who fly in and declare that they won't be enslaved by the Death Busters anymore. Tomoe enters, carrying a large gun. Shintarou joins the fight as well. The gun is too heavy for Tomoe to aim properly, so he fires wildly. Sailor Moon enters and attacks to no effect. Tomoe momentarily gloats before expressing discontent at being double-crossed by the Hoshinos. Tuxedo Mask tries to intervene, but to no avail. Uranus and Neptune attack and join the fight ("Harsh! Saint Cry!!"). They manage to force the Death Busters to retreat, but not before Kaolinite comments that the best Hostie have gathered.

Uranus and Neptune mention an approaching destruction and tell the Inner Senshi to stay away. Moon tries to ask them why they can't fight together, and Uranus uses World Shaking as a warning to leave them alone. The Inners refuse to accept Uranus and Neptune as Senshi because they attacked them, but Pluto appears and tells them that she was sent by Neo-Queen Serenity and the Outers' mission is different. As to what that mission is, she only mentions a goddess of destruction before leaving.

The Hoshino family talk about the Ginzuishou and their origins. They are from the planet Grimm, whose people can fly. Barako tells the story of the Pied Piper of Hameln and explains that the Death Busters used the Taioron Crystal to kill the children of Grimm, thereby dooming the planet. The family laments their endangered home ("Chinmoku no Hameln (Silent Hameln)").

At Hikawa Shrine, Usagi and the Inners don't agree on the Outer Senshi. Usagi doesn't think they can conclude that they're enemies, but the Inners are apprehensive ("Usagi to Yonin no Zureru Omoi (Usagi and Her Four Friends' Shifting Feelings)"). Rei storms off. Mamoru enters with a file on Prof. Tomoe and Infinity Academy, including information about a large laboratory fire and Hotaru's survival without a single injury. Chibi-Usa enters, asking about a cute girl. Apparently they promised to meet at the shrine, but it's been an hour since their meeting time. Chibi-Usa connects the information in the file with Hotaru and Hotaru's father - Professor Tomoe. They are attacked by the Grimm (now introducing themselves by their real names), who demand the Ginzuishou. Sailor Mars enters to drive them off ("Honoo no Messenger (Messenger of Flame)").

Usagi transforms into Super Sailor Moon and flies in to stop the fighting. She asks the Grimm why they want the Ginzuishou and if there's some way she can help them. She offers it to them so that they can return home, and recognizes Damask as Shintarou. The family tell them about their endangered planet and the stolen Hostie. Moon tries to give them the crystal, but the Death Busters arrive to lay claim to it, which leads to a fight. The rest of the Inners and Tux show up to help.

Hotaru arrives, and knocks everyone down with a mysterious power. There's apparently something "evil" inside her. Holding the amulet, she demands that Chibi-Usa "hand it over". The Outers arrive and announce that they need to kill Hotaru, the bringer of destruction. Moon blocks Uranus' path and protests that Sailor Senshi shouldn't fight each other. Professor Tomoe arrives just before the scene ends.

Act 2

At a park overlooking the Infinity District, the Outers kneel and apologize to Moon. They introduce themselves properly to her. They explain that they watch from afar, and the Death Busters are their responsibility. There is no more time left, and they don't want any interference from the Inner Senshi. Tuxedo Mask asks them about the last Senshi - the god of destruction. Uranus explains that with their Talismans, they can stop "her" - Saturn. When she awakens, the world will be destroyed. The talismans called to them, and Saturn has been reborn. They must halt her awakening, and they intend to seal her by killing her.

The Inners protest, and Uranus admonishes Moon for her naivete. Moon insists that there has to be a way to save everyone, and pleads with them to save her. Uranus says that that reaction is exactly why they couldn't fight together. Uranus insists that Moon not dirty her hands with this, and Moon runs off. Uranus and Neptune reflect on the nature of their mission ("Destined Couple"). Pluto warns them that Hotaru's body doesn't have much time. The only way to save her is for Saturn to awaken and use her power, but they can't let that happen because they have to prevent destruction.

At Tomoe Labs, the villains prepare for the next stage of their plan ("Magus Collection"). Tomoe thinks that the light that guides destruction is the Ginzuishou. Kaolinite warns him that the Taioron crystal is dangerous, and he brushes it off, instead ordering her to find their enemies' identities. Tomoe threatens that they will be 'crossed out' if they should fail. Kaolinite and the Witches 5 plan to invite the Senshi to the Academy so that they can fight in their own territory. Kaolinite has Cyprine stay behind for a moment and tells her that she will drive the Senshi into a corner. Cyprine picks up on what she is implying and leaves to join the rest of the Witches 5.

Kaolinite's reflecting pool is in in chaos, and she is uneasy about the confusion it reflects. Chibi-Usa wanders into the lab, looking for Hotaru, and Kaolinite hides. Chibi-Usa and Prof. Tomoe run into each other. Tomoe recognizes her from what Hotaru told him about her. He explains to Chibi-Usa that Hotaru is in ill health. Hotaru enters without her amulet, having another fit. She says that there is someone inside her head. The amulet apparently went dark - it ran out of power. Chibi-Usa tries to comfort her. Hotaru touches Chibi-Usa's brooch and feels better, but her tone changes and she begins to act strangely. Chibi-Usa lets slip that she has the Ginzuishou. Hotaru snaps out of her urge to have the amulet. Kaolinite asks why Chibi-Usa has the ginzuishou, and Tomoe is confused as to why there are two. Hotaru tries to protect Chibi-Usa from Kaolinite and Tomoe, but to no avail.

Shintarou enters and tries to rescue Chibi-Usa, but fails. The rest of the Hoshinos join the effort, and Tellu uses her flower magic to incapacitate them and Chibi-Usa ("Muma no Odori (Nightmares' Dance)"). Kaolinite uses her magic to bring the Hoshinos under her control, making them loyal to the Death Busters. Hotaru takes Chibi-Usa's brooch, and Chibi-Usa collapses.

The Inner Senshi and Tux look for Chibi-Usa in the Infinity District labyrinth. The Inners go on to scout ahead and leave Moon with Tux. He has a bad feeling about the whole thing. The Hoshinos welcome them to the labyrinth and tell her to give them the Ginzuishou to keep her out of danger. They offer to fight alongside her, and lead her to a secret entrance in the basement. The Senshi split up. Mars goes to Homeroom, and is met by Eudial, who begins the student orientation. Venus goes to the art class and joins Mimete in an idol performance. Mercury goes to the science class, and Viluy leads a class on nanobots and a machine for creating Hostie. Jupiter goes to the greenhouse, and Tellu introduces her to her strength-sapping flowers. Cyprine uses her magic to amplify the darkness in the Senshi's hearts and turn them against the Outer Senshi.

The Outer Senshi enter and break the spell, driving off the Witches 5. Moon thanks them, but the Outer Senshi remind them that they do not want the Prince and Princess to fight. Barako and Shintarou enter the classroom, conveniently knowing where everyone was supposed to be. Moon questions why the Outer Senshi are doing this for their princess. The Outer Senshi explain that it is because they allowed the moon kingdom to be destroyed. Pluto watched as Saturn ended the Silver Millennium. The Inner Senshi protest that it wasn't their fault, but the Outers stand firm in their resolve. They begin to leave, but Kaolinite uses her magic to trap them there. They return a barely conscious Chibi-Usa to them, and she collapses. Kaolinite immobilizes them, and Centi reveals that they have Chibi-Usa's Ginzuishou. Kaolinite reveals her manipulation, and Cyprine tries to take Chibiusa's hostie.

Hotaru intervenes, and demands that Cyprine give her back. She uses her power to knock everyone down. Something begins to emerge from within Hotaru. Kaolinite tries to use her magic, but Hotaru nullifies it, and it goes dark. In Hotaru's place stands a sinister figure who takes Chibi-Usa's Ginzuishou. The Death Busters disappear, leaving Chibi-Usa on the verge of death.

What has awakened is not Saturn, but rather an enemy using Hotaru's body as a vessel. The Outers set off to finish her off and end Hotaru's suffering. Tuxedo Mask swears to protect Chibi-Usa with his life. The Inner Senshi are resolved to fight. ("Sailor War '94").At the water mirror palace, Mistress 9 properly introduces herself ("Seijaku no Hostie (Seitai) (Hostie (The Host) of Silence)"). The Death Busters gather. Mistress 9 is not pleased with her body's condition. She makes it clear that she is their master and Pharaoh 90's partner in this endeavor, and is not happy with their incompetence. Pharaoh 90 asks what the source of Mistress 9's surging power is. It is the Ginzuishou, which Pharaoh 90 says is more brilliant than the Taioron Crystal. Mistress 9 hears Hotaru's voice crying out from within her. Kaolinite cattily suggests that it might be because she's awakened, but Mistress 9 threatens to put a Daimon in her body. She refers to Tomoe as "Germanoid" before leaving.

Tomoe recalls the lab accident and how he saved Hotaru with a Daimon, and he refers to himself as a god. He is interrupted by the Outer Senshi ("Broken Mobius ~Talisman Ver.~"). The Death Busters bring in the Hoshinos to help them in the fight. Uranus doesn't want to hurt the Hoshinos, and aims for the Death Busters. The Hoshinos offer to help the Outer Senshi. Barako reveals that Moss and Alba are not actually his kids, but he saved them. Centi offers their help to the Outer Senshi once more. Uranus and Neptune don't have time for this and don't believe it. Centi draws a sword and fights the Outer Senshi. Neptune asks her why she is fighting, and Centi reveals that Moss is the last princess of Grimm. Barako joins the fight as well, and reveals that they were only pretending to be under Kaolinite's control.

Barako calls out Mistress 9, and she enters. She tries to attack, but has some difficulty doing so, attributing it to being newly awakened. Barako introduces himself as Gallica and attacks. Mistress 9 draws power from the Ginzuishou and uses it to attack. Uranus realizes that Saturn is awakening within her. The Outers try to use the talismans. Hotaru continues to fight from the inside, causing Mistress 9 pain. Kaolinite tries to prevent Saturn from awakening, but Mistress 9 strikes her down. Mistress 9 wants to take Pharaoh 90 into herself and be released from her body.

The Senshi arrive, and Mistress 9 calls herself invincible. She's having none of it, but Moon points out that Hotaru is still there within her. Tomoe arrives, having turned into the human-Daimon hybrid Germanoid. Hotaru realizes that he is no longer her "papa". He attacks the Grimm, and the adults and Alba try to fight him off as Damask flies away with Moss. Germanoid strikes down Alba, Centi, and Gallica, and they entrust their planet to Moon as they die. Hotaru won't forgive them, and begins to speak through Mistress 9.

Saturn, the Light of Destruction, awakens, to the Outers' horror ("The World Died Out"). She prepares to purge the world into silence and carry out her duty, regardless of anyone's protests. Germanoid and Pharaoh 90 try to persuade her to their side, and Moon tries to stop her, but she goes through with it. Uranus angrily asks Moon if she's satisfied before she dies.

Moon is the only one left alive, and she laments that she just wanted to save everyone. She hears the voices of Damask and Gallica, and realizes that since Mistress 9 is gone, Chibi-Usa's Ginzuishou is now free. Chibi-Usa tells her to use it, and she uses it to bring Sailor Chibi-Moon to her. They both use their power to bring everyone back and restore the world - including the Death Busters. The final battle begins ("21st Now Millenium Koi no Senshi ja Irarenai (Can't Just Be Soldiers of Love)").

Pluto uses Dark Dome Close to send away the remaining Death Busters. Saturn and the Outers kneel before Moon, and they promise to fight by her side from now on because they are all Sailor Senshi ("Hereafter"). Moon wonders if the Hoshinos made it back to Planet Grimm, and Mars reassures her that they did.

    Starlights - Ryuusei Densetsu (Starlights - Legend of the Shooting Stars

Act 1

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/starlights_front.jpg
Usagi performs "Tsuki-iro no Syndicate (Moon-Colored Syndicate)" on stage at the outdoor theater, joined by the rest of the Inner Senshi as her backup. Michiru enters and asks if they're excited to be the opening act for her concert, letting on that she has "other guests". Chibi-Usa wants to sing, too, but she can't say the tongue twister that Usagi challenges her to say. Haruka arrives, followed shortly thereafter by a little girl holding an umbrella with Setsuna in hot pursuit. The girl has apparently stolen Setsuna's umbrella. Chibi-Usa tries to ask the girl some questions, but she only answers with "chibi chibi", so the group decides to call the girl Chibi-Chibi. Hotaru arrives on a bicycle being pushed by Mamoru. Chibi-Chibi appears to recognize him, and begins to say something about the universe.

She is interrupted by the arrival of the Dancing Animamates (Manila Karasu, Chuu Rat, and Miss Butterfly), a professional dance troupe, and the Jewel Metalias (J. Taitou, Raito Mifune, Saito Izo, and Saito Kun), the directors and promoters in charge of the concert ("Dancing Mistress"). The promoters also have an interest in jewels on the side. Saito Izo and Ami briefly flirt. The Dancing Animamates are revealed to be the backup dancers for the idol group Three Lights. The Three Lights arrive, and the girls run off to see them. Saito Kun and Mamoru are the last two people left, and they share a brief exchange before Saito Kun leaves, leaving Mamoru on stage alone.

Mamoru reminisces about being in the hospital as a child, and picks up a guitar. Chibi-Chibi enters and says "memory" and "song". Mamoru asks her what she wants to hear, and she replies with "the song of this planet". He plays her the song he remembers from the hospital ("Kaze no Shijin (Poet of the Wind)"). A mysterious masked soprano interrupts and sings the final verse and chorus. The mysterious woman lingers, asking Mamoru why he won't sing for her, and speaks of strange stars falling on a certain day. She sounds familiar to him, but he can't quite seem to place it. She threatens that the love between him and Usagi will soon disappear. Usagi enters, complaining that it's suddenly become dark. Mamoru collapses, and the mysterious woman prepares to attack. The Sailor Starlights enter and Sailor Star Fighter attacks, driving the woman away. The trio warn Usagi to treat everyone who approaches her as an enemy before disappearing.

The rest of the Senshi arrive, having felt a large energy. Haruka is suspicious at the mention of other Senshi, but Usagi and Mamoru are more hopeful. Mamoru finds a strange necklace lying on the ground. J. Taitou examines it and identifies it as beryl - one that seems to have a history. Chibi-Chibi gets a hold of the necklace and gets in the way of anyone else taking away from Mamoru. Minako enters with a stack of autograph books, but the Three Lights are apparently nowhere to be found. After some complaining on Minako's part, the Three Lights finally arrive, and the Inner Senshi are starstruck. Usagi observes that the Three Lights missed their stage show. Haruka and Michiru shake hands with Seiya and Taiki, and feel star energy from them when they do. The dancers return, and the Three Lights finally rehearse ("Chasin' After You"). Usagi comments that their song is somehow sad. The Three Lights and the dancers go offstage. The girls briefly try to question Chibi-Chibi, but she stonewalls them.

Saito Izo admits that he likes Ami, and the rest of the managers flirt with the rest of the Inner Senshi. The rest of the girls lightly tease Ami ("Koi no Dangerous (Love is Dangerous)"). The girls leave one by one. Usagi decides to stay behind and wait for Mamoru and Chibi-Usa to come back. She has a bad feeling as it becomes dark again, but it wears off when Seiya enters. Seiya tells Usagi about a monster that is rumored to drag people who get separated from their group down to hell. Yaten and Taiki enter and elaborate that the monster only goes after men and "reeks" of unrequited love. They reiterate that Usagi should take care, and it appears as though they are hiding something. Usagi recognizes them as the ones who saved her earlier. She asks them about their enemy, and they tell her that she is the destroyer of all space: Galaxia ("Galaxia Gorgeous").

Galaxia issues orders to her subordinates. She says that if the Animamates take the Star Seeds on Earth, she will make them real Sailor Senshi. She calls Usagi "unusual" for staying surrounded by such dim star seeds when hers is so strong. The Shitennou ask about the Earth and their empire, but are talked over by the Animamates. Galaxia assures them that they will have the Earth. She spots the remains of a planet she destroyed, now turned to shooting stars. A phantom of Queen Beryl appears and voices her resentments about her past and the moon princess. Galaxia orders Beryl to take the Earth's star seed in return for reviving her, and sends the Shitennou off after her.

Back at the outdoor theater, Ami is musing about her budding feelings for Saito Izo ("Dream Koi no Mebae (Dream, Buds of Romance)"). Saito Izo meets up with her and presents her with a first edition copy of The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux. The rest of the managers and Inner Senshi show up, and it turns into a group date. Usagi enters by herself and kills the mood. Sailor Iron Mouse arrives and attacks, quickly joined by the other Animamates. The managers move to protect their dates. Usagi wants them to transform, but the girls play dumb in order to protect their identities. The Animamates try to attack Usagi, but Tuxedo Mask interrupts and challenges them ("Prince of the Earth"). He tries to use Tuxedo La Smoking Bomber, but Beryl appears and renders it useless. She finally jogs his memory of the fall of the Silver Millennium.

Usagi interrupts by transforming into Sailor Moon. She attacks, but it also fails. Beryl continues relating the story of her life in the Silver Millennium, and Moon finally realizes that the mysterious concert hall ghost was Beryl all along. The Outer Senshi arrive to protect Sailor Moon, and attack Beryl. Queen Beryl and the Shitennou introduce themselves as the Dark Kingdom. The Inner Senshi also arrive. Moon hesitates to attack the Animamates, since they appear to be Sailor Senshi. The Animamates take advantage of her hesitation and attack, and the rest of the Sailor Senshi respond with a Sailor Planet Attack.

Galaxia arrives and introduces herself. She shows the Senshi her conquest of space, and challenges Sailor Moon. The Starlights enter and reveal that Galaxia destroyed their planet. Galaxia recognizes them and scoffs. The Starlights attack her, but to no avail. Galaxia counters them and taunts the Senshi. Sailor Moon stands defiant, and the battle begins as the Sailor Senshi unite ("Sailor War Supreme"). Queen Beryl takes Tuxedo Mask's star seed and announces that she will at last be revived.

Act 2

Now revived, Queen Beryl is working alongside Galaxia ("Yami Koso Utsukushii ~Galaxia no Sakui~ (Darkness Is So Beautiful ~Galaxia's Intent~)"). Galaxia is not particularly impressed with Mamoru's star seed, and tells Beryl that she can have it at any time. Beryl and the Shitennou leave. Galaxia and the Animamates don't care much for the Dark Kingdom's goals, and prepare themselves to collect more star seeds. Galaxia wants Moon to rise to her level.

On the Juuban High School rooftop, Usagi is upset and full of uncertainty without Mamoru by her side ("Moon Memories"). Seiya joins her and tries to reassure her that Mamoru will get better. Usagi asks Seiya about who the Starlights are looking for. Seiya tells her about Planet Kinmoku, a peaceful planet which was ruled by the compassionate Princess Kakyuu until the planet was destroyed by Galaxia. The Starlights followed Kakyuu's star seed to Earth, and are singing so that she can hear them. Taiki and Yaten join them, not pleased with Seiya for divulging that information, and frustrated that the Sailor Senshi are not handling their own business (the Dark Kingdom). Rei and Makoto arrive and tell them off before relaying the message to Usagi that Mamoru has woken up. Usagi leaves with Makoto to check on him. Rei warns the trio to leave her princess out of their matters before leaving. Chibi-Chibi enters and says that she heard their song. She's followed by Chibi-Usa, who came to tell Usagi that Mamoru vanished. In the meantime, Chibi-Chibi wanders off. According to Chibi-Usa, Chibi-Chibi began to mumble "the princess is coming" when the Three Lights sang.

At the auditorium, the Inner Senshi are excited for their group date with Hotaru as their chaperone ("Seishun no Shoumi Kigen (Time to Enjoy Our Youth)"). The girls and the managers flirt some more. The managers appear to know their secret identities as Sailor Senshi. Saitou Izo urges Ami to consider following her dream of being a doctor instead of fighting. Usagi enters and comments on the group date. Mamoru enters and abruptly tells Usagi that he is leaving to study abroad, and that he can't protect her anymore. He collapses, and Usagi suddenly has a feeling that something like this happened long ago. Mamoru gets up and walks away, and a couple of the managers and senshi go after him.

Saito Izo asks what was taken from Mamoru during the last battle. Chibi-Chibi appears and says "star seed". Usagi tries to ask her about what she knows, but she goes back to answering with "chibi chibi". Ami explains what Star Seeds are. Saito Izo appears to put two and two together, but keeps it to himself. He asks Usagi why she isn't trying to help Mamoru. J. Taitou and Saito Izo try to talk her into helping everyone vis-a-vis helping Mamoru. Rei and Makoto admonish them for not considering Usagi's burden.

Sailors Iron Mouse and Lead Crow interrupt and attack. The Outer Senshi ambush them, only for the Animamates to reveal that Metal Butterfly, Tuxedo Mask, and a disguised Kunzite and Nephrite have them surrounded. Beryl arrives, introduces Tuxedo Mask as her husband, and orders him to attack Usagi. Usagi struggles to remember who Beryl is as Beryl and the Animamates attack. Usagi tries to get everyone to fight back, but the disguised Shitennou threaten J. Taitou and Saito Izo. Usagi recognizes that hate is all that Beryl lives for, and asks her forgiveness by way of offering her the Ginzuishou. Beryl attacks the untransformed Senshi. The Outers try to intervene, but Tuxedo Mask fights them off. Galaxia arrives and knocks out all of the Senshi in one hit, leaving them weakened ("Minna no Ai wo Kaesenai (I Can't Return Everyone's Love)"). Galaxia takes the Inner Senshi's star seeds, prompting Usagi to declare that she hates her. Galaxia challenges Usagi to fight her, and Usagi transforms.

The Outers prepare for the coming fight ("Kokoro Tabanete Makin' for the Right (Bundle the Heart, Makin' for the Right)"). They teleport away just as Chibi-Chibi catches up to them. Chibi-Moon is ready to go after everyone, but Chibi-Chibi stops her, telling her that this is not an enemy that she should face. Chibi-Chibi takes out her star seed and reveals that her body is temporary - she ran away from the Galaxy Cauldron. She says that she won't be able to win without this star seed. Chibi-Chibi cowers when the Starlights arrive. Chibi-Moon tells them that everyone has gone to the Cauldron, and the Starlights argue about whether they should go. Chibi-Moon says that she's going, and they try to dissuade her, but her determination gets them to stop squabbling and decide to go. They offer to help Chibi-Moon look for the Cauldron, and Chibi-Chibi guides them all to Galactica Palace.

The Dark Kingdom regroup at Galactica Palace ("By Heaven! Kami Nomi zo Shiru (Only God Knows)"). Galaxia shows them the star seeds collected from the Inner Senshi. There is some brief infighting between the Animamates and the Dark Kingdom, and Galaxia makes it clear that only the strong will survive and everyone is an enemy. She senses Moon's arrival and prepares for the coming battle ("Get Across the Moon"). Super Sailor Moon arrives, and Galaxia notices that she is stronger than before. Moon maintains that she isn't stronger because of hate; rather, she is strengthened by the love she has for everyone. Galaxia shows her all of the star seeds she has gathered and issues her challenge. She sends the Dark Kingdom at Sailor Moon first, and they all introduce themselves. Tuxedo Mask fights her first, and Moon is visibly shaken. Galaxia also summons the Inner Senshi under her control, and Moon is shocked by her methods. The Outers arrive to help Moon. Moon argues over ethics with Galaxia, who is unyielding in her use of force.

Moon is still reluctant to fight, but the battle begins all the same. Tuxedo Mask tells Moon that he still loves her, even without his star seed. Beryl prepares to dispose of him for failing her, but she is interrupted by the Starlights ("A Shooting Star Light"). They try to attack Galaxia, but do little damage, and she taunts them. Moon reminds Galaxia that she is her opponent. Galaxia attacks, downing the Outers and the Starlights. Beryl blames Moon for inviting these battles. Moon apologizes to everyone, maintains her love for the planet, and vows to bring everyone back. Galaxia tries to goad Moon into fighting her, but Moon says that combat isn't the only way to fight. Moon offers her the Ginzuishou and asks if she will spare everyone, for if the Ginzuishou and Saffer Crystal clash, the universe could be destroyed. Galaxia is perplexed by Moon's behavior. Moon maintains that Sailor Senshi don't desire destruction, and tries to reach out to Galaxia as a fellow Sailor Senshi.

Beryl asks Galaxia for permission to return to Earth so that she won't be caught in the crossfire. The Shitennou are not pleased with Beryl's readiness to abandon Endymion, and they vow to stay with him - their true king. The reveal that they were never under her control, and Kunzite take Mamoru's star seed. Galaxia reveals that she gave the star seed to them and orders the Shitennou to dispose of Beryl, who does not take this revelation well. Moon wonders how a Senshi could do something so horrible. Just as Galaxia is about to attack, Chibi-Chibi enters and tells her to remember her, for she is her. Galaxia tries to back away, but Chibi-Chibi catches up and they unite. The star seeds go back to where they belong, allowing the Inner Senshi and Tuxedo Mask to return. The Senshi now face off against the Dark Kingdom. Zoisite taunts them, prompting Mercury to lead the charge ("Drive Me the Mercury").

Sailor Chaos appears with the Animamates. The Sailor Senshi struggle to withstand Chaos's power as Chaos prepares to battle Moon. Moon tries to get through to Galaxia, but to no avail. Chibi-Moon arrives to fight alongside Sailor Moon ("Pinky Typhoon"). Chaos reveals that all of the enemies the Senshi have fought so far were Chaos and Moon's brethren, also born from the Galaxy Cauldron. The final battle begins ("What For! Shinjitsu no Kajitsu (The Fruit of Truth)"). Moon uses Moon Healing Escalation to bring the Shitennou out from Beryl's thrall. The Shitennou join the fight against Beryl and Shadow Galactica and make up with Tuxedo Mask, who apologizes for letting them down. Sailor Moon transforms into Eternal Sailor Moon and defeats Chaos with Chibi-Moon's help. Since the Galaxy Cauldron is still there, the universe will go on living. Moon says that Galaxia will make a new history for her planet, and reassures the Starlights that they will find their princess. The show ends with "Here Goes! Shooting Star".

    Kakyuu-Ouhi Kourin (Advent of Princess Kakyuu) - The Second Stage Final 

Act 1

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_advent_of_princess_kakyu_2nd_stage_final_poster.jpg
Super Sailor Moon, Endymion, Sailor Pluto, and the Shitennou fight off Beryl and the Animamates. Endymion, Sailor Chibi-Moon, and Super Sailor Moon sing "New Double Moonlight Romance".

At a performance hall, the Inner Senshi and Hotaru are excited about being young and stuff ("Seishun no Shoumi Kigen (Time to Enjoy Our Youth)"). Mamoru and Haruka have apparently been racing bicycles. The Senshi have been waiting for the Three Lights to show up, since they're supposed to be on before Michiru at this concert. Minako, Makoto, and Usagi fantasize about flirting with Yaten, Taiki, and Seiya, respectively. A little pink haired girl flies in, holding the Garnet Rod. When caught and questioned by the group, she only responds with "chibi chibi". She surprises and confuses everyone by recognizing Mamoru, and says that right now, the universe is…

She is interrupted by arrival the Jewel Managers (Luka Naito, Yoruno Hideo, Taito Hemahachiro, and Saito Kun), the directors and promoters of the concert ("Jewel Managers Toujou (The Jewel Managers Appear)"). They are evidently looking for the Senshi. The Dancing Animamates (Manila Karasu, Chuu Rat, Half Bird, and Miss Butterfly) arrive shortly thereafter ("Dancing Mistress"). The Three Lights then begin their rehearsal, much to everyone's excitement ("See Me, Boku-tachi no Jidai (See Me, Our Era)"). Everyone there mingles briefly.

The Jewel Managers usher the Three Lights out for some more rehearsal. The girls gradually go their separate ways, leaving Hotaru, Mamoru, and Saito Kun behind. Saito Kun and Mamoru share a brief exchange before Saito Kun leaves, and Setsuna enters. Chibi-Chibi enters and the group try to get some more information out of her, but to no avail. Mamoru reminisces about being in the hospital as a child, and picks up a guitar. Chibi-Chibi says "memory" and "song". Mamoru asks her what she wants to hear, and she replies with "the song of this planet". He plays her the song he remembers from the hospital ("Kaze no Shijin (Poet of the Wind)"). A mysterious masked soprano interrupts and sings the final verse and chorus. The woman lingers and speaks of strange stars falling on a certain day. She is joined by four other mysterious figures. She sounds familiar to Mamoru, but he can't quite seem to place it. Usagi enters, and the mysterious people prepare to attack. Three mysterious Sailor Senshi, the Sailor Starlights, enter and drive the attackers away. The trio warn Usagi to treat everyone who approaches her as an enemy before disappearing.

It appears that the enemies were after Mamoru and Hotaru. Chibi-Usa finds a necklace lying around. Usagi takes it from her, but it's so cold that she drops it. Hemahachiro enters disguised as a janitor as Setsuna leads the Senshi in trying to solve this mystery by looking at the facts. Hemahachiro shares the legend of the performance hall ghost: once someone has seen it, they will hallucinate. Mamoru offers him the necklace as proof that it wasn't just a hallucination. Luka claims to have put it there, and identifies the stone as chrysoberyl. Haruka takes the necklace and feels a power from it.

A scream is heard from offstage. The Animamates and Hideo run in, claiming to have seen a ghost in the dressing room. Something goes flying past, and an investigation into the strange phenomena begins ("Excite a Ghost Mystery"). The Animamates and Managers are in cahoots in creating the "ghost" phenomena. Hotaru disappears during the investigation, and the group splits up to find her. Usagi and Ami end up alone together, and the mystery woman reappears. Sailor Saturn appears and tells them that the the woman's form is insubstantial, but they should be careful. The woman calls Saturn her "trump card" and warns that darkness will soon cover the planet. Usagi is on the verge of remembering who the woman is, but is interrupted by Seiya, with Yaten and Taiki following close behind. Saturn asks the trio why they are there. The Three Lights are pessimistic about this planet. They let on that they are Sailor Senshi, and Usagi realizes that they are the ones who saved her. She asks them about their enemy, and they tell her that she is the destroyer of all space: Galaxia ("Galaxia Gorgeous").

The Shitennou see Sailor Saturn as a threat to the Earth's existence and warn the Animamates not to attack recklessly. The Animamates and Shitennou almost come to blows. Beryl wants them to stop fighting, but Galaxia takes a kind of pleasure in seeing them fight. Galaxia wants to see what will happen when the Silver Crystal and her Saffer Crystal come to blows. The Dark Kingdom want to use the Earth's star seed to restore the Earth Kingdom and complete Queen Beryl's resurrection, so they target Chiba Mamoru. Galaxia - or rather, what appears to be speaking through Galaxia - makes it clear that the Dark Kingdom are nothing but tools; she intends for the Earth to be destroyed through the Dark Kingdom and Sailor Senshi's fighting. The Animamates are all eager to get Sailor Saturn out of the picture. Suddenly, Galaxia senses a familiar light from Earth, that of Princess Kakyuu. She immediately orders the Animamates to head for Earth and find her.

Back at the performance hall, the Three Lights are rehearsing, but are visibly frustrated ("Chasin' After You"). They are filled with doubts about finding their princess and the Light of Hope. Seiya is sure that they will find her on this planet and does his best to ease Yaten and Taiki's worries. He is worried about Usagi, so he goes off to find her. Hemahachiro engages in a bit of comedy with his managing duties. Taiki and Yaten leave, leaving Hemahachiro alone.

Hemahachiro is joined by the rest of the Shitennou. Hamahachiro reveals that 1 year ago, a light from Sagittarius Alpha struck their land and disappeared at around the same time that Galaxia conquered Planet Kinmoku. Three lights then slipped through Leo and struck the land. He identifies those three lights as the Three Lights - the lights that even Galaxia couldn't capture. The Shitennou intend to use them against Galaxia. They're frustrated with how the Animamates treat them. Queen Beryl appears and warns them that if they make just one mistake, they will be annihilated. She doesn't want to hand Saturn over to Galaxia, but rather use her as their own trump card, and voices her frustration at not having her full power. The Dark Kingdom hatch a plan to steal Mamoru's Star Seed and get the Sailor Senshi and Animamates to fight each other until they're too weak and/or distracted to stop them.

The strategy meeting is interrupted by Usagi, and Beryl runs away. Haruka and Michiru enter and let Usagi know that Setsuna is keeping a close eye on Hotaru elsewhere. The Managers chalk up everyone's worries to the previous day's fuss. Mamoru thinks that it would be best for everyone to focus on the concert. The Animamates attack the group, and the Inner Senshi quickly arrive to fight them off. Mamoru enters as Tuxedo Mask and challenges the Animamates ("Prince of the Earth"). He tries to use Tuxedo La Smoking Bomber, but the mysterious woman appears and renders it useless. She reveals herself as Queen Beryl and jogs his memory of his past life and the fall of the Silver Millennium. The Shitennou also reveal themselves. Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto join the fight ("Broken Mobius - Talisman Ver."). As the Outer Senshi and Dark Kingdom face off, Tuxedo Mask recognizes the Shitennou as his guardians. The Shitennou try to take his Star Seed, and Sailor Saturn arrives. The Animamates taunt her. Pluto tries to reason with everyone to stop the fighting because the battle's true cause is a greater darkness, but Beryl refuses, and the battle continues. Tuxedo Mask also makes an attempt to stop the battle, and Beryl tries to get him to give up his Star Seed.

Sailor Moon finally arrives. She does not appear to recognize Beryl. Beryl heaps blame for the tragedies of the past onto Moon, while Tuxedo Mask begs her to not listen to Beryl's words. A fight breaks out as Moon struggles to remember what happened ("The Last Change (21st Century)"). Moon fights Beryl and tries to reason with her. She makes an attempt to purify everything, but to no avail.

Galaxia arrives, unimpressed with the power of the Silver Crystal. She taunts Moon with the threat of destroying the Solar System. The Starlights arrive and tell everyone that Galaxia is responsible for destroying their home planet. They attack her, but Galaxia and the Animamates shrug it off. Galaxia is pleased with the conflict before her. She calls the Starlights "trash" as the rest of the Senshi move to protect them. The Starlights try to tell Moon that Galaxia cannot be reasoned with. They tell her about their home, Planet Kinmoku, a peaceful planet which was ruled by the compassionate Princess Kakyuu until the planet was destroyed by Galaxia. The Starlights followed Kakyuu's star seed to Earth. Galaxia and the Dark Kingdom continue to attack. Galaxia is about to take the Senshi's Star Seeds when Chibi-Chibi floats in, urging them to not lose hope. The Starlights catch a familiar scent - it is Princess Kakyuu, who reveals herself at last ("Toki Michite Kourin (Arrival When the Time Has Come)").

Act 2

The Dark Kingdom regroup at Galactica Palace, headed by a now fully revived Queen Beryl ("Tenkuu no Utage (Banquet of the Heavens)"). Kunzite apologizes for not taking Endymion's Star Seed, but Queen Beryl brushes it off. They gloat about how Galaxia lost her bearings. Beryl observes that Galaxia didn't fear Kakyuu - rather, she feared Chibi-Chibi. She orders the Shitennou to go after Chibi-Chibi. The Animamates enter and taunt them for having to resort to schemes, rather than taking what they need by force. A furious Galaxia enters and sends everyone off after the Sailor Crystals ("Galaxia no Dokusai (Galaxia's Dictatorship)").

On the rooftop of Juuban High School, Princess Kakyuu reunites with the Three Lights ("Kakyuu-Ouhi to Three Lights (Princess Kakyuu and the Three Lights)"). The trio argue about what they should do now, and Kakyuu tells them to believe in her and the Silver Crystal. Usagi and Ami arrive on the rooftop. Usagi congratulates the Three Lights on finding their princess. She thinks that they are going back to Kinmoku, and Seiya corrects her, saying that this planet will be destroyed. Ami tries to protest that the Solar System Senshi have it under control, but Yaten doesn't believe it. Princess Kakyuu formally introduces herself to Usagi; she has been looking forward to meeting the holder of the Silver Crystal. She apologizes for the Three Lights' rudeness and tells Usagi that she came to Earth because Usagi is the only one who can save the galaxy. Ami apologizes and asks Kakyuu about Galaxia. Galaxia was originally from a distant planet. Some time ago, she began attacking planets and building the Shadow Galactica empire while stealing Sailor Crystals. The Animamates are not true Sailor Senshi; they are bodies of those taken advantage of by Galaxia and are controlled by the bracelets that they wear. Kakyuu believes that Galaxia's aim is fixed on Usagi because she holds the Silver Crystal. Sudden loud noises are heard. The city is under attack and is being destroyed bit by bit. It's a declaration of war. Kakyuu declares that it is time to go to Shadow Galactica, and she guides the group there.

Chibi-Chibi and Galaxia tell the story of an entity called Chaos. It came from the Galaxy Cauldron and brought forth evil, felling many Sailor Senshi. When the universe was about to fall into darkness, Galaxia, the strongest Sailor Senshi, faced Chaos. After a long and difficult battle, Galaxia sealed Chaos into herself. However, her body decayed over time. Before she was completely taken over, she released her Star Seed, which has now appeared as Chibi-Chibi.

Hemahachiro appears in a Sailor Chibi-Moon disguise in order to capture Chibi-Chibi. Hideo also dresses up as an old lady to lure Chibi-Chibi with apples. The real Sailor Chibi-Moon arrives to put a stop to their plan and protect Chibi-Chibi. The Shitennou attack her. Chibi-Chibi manages to repel their attack and escape, but Chibi-Moon is captured.

On a hill overlooking the city, Tuxedo Mask and the Sailor Senshi gather and observe the destruction. They acknowledge that what they are about to do is dangerous, but agree that at least one of them must survive for Sailor Moon's sake. They are attacked just as they try to teleport. Tuxedo Mask stays behind and is approached by Queen Beryl. He confronts her about her "delusions" of the past. The Shitennou join her with Chibi-Moon in tow. They threaten Chibi-Moon's life, so Tuxedo Mask willingly gives up his Star Seed to protect her. With his Star Seed in hand, the Dark Kingdom go back to Galactica Palace ("By Heaven! Kami Nomi zo Shiru (Only God Knows)").

The Inner Senshi and Animamates confront each other. The Inner Senshi want to know what the Animamates are fighting for. Venus tries to reason with them, but Lead Crow rejects her, and they attack. Galaxia arrives and joins the fight ("Get Across the Moon (What For! Shinjitsu no Kajitsu (The Fruit of Truth) Ver.)"). Sailor Moon arrives with the Starlights and Kakyuu. Moon tries to attack, but it is ineffective. The Animamates offer the Senshi Galaxia's bracelets, but they refuse out of loyalty to Sailor Moon. Galaxia takes their Star Seeds ("Sorezore no Elegy (Each One's Elegy)"). Sailor Moon lets out a scream of despair. The Outer Senshi arrive too late to save the Inner Senshi. Moon begins to lose hope of defeating Galaxia, and the Outers begin to fight Galaxia and the Animamates.

The Dark Kingdom interrupt the skirmish to ask about Galaxia saving the Earth for them. Galaxia brushes them off. They bring in Tuxedo Mask, who is now under their thrall, to Moon's shock. Since Beryl brought her the Star Seed of Earth, Galaxia now considers their business settled. Beryl agrees and attacks Galaxia with the help of Chibi-Moon's Silver Crystal. Galaxia reminds the Shitennou that she brought them back, and of the meaning of the bracelets. She taunts them with the fact that Moon can't even use the Crystal's full power, much less the Dark Kingdom. Galaxia attacks, and Pluto jumps in front of Beryl to protect her. Beryl is surprised by this act, and Pluto tries to offer her empathy due to their similar plights ("Onna no Ronsou (The Women's Dispute)"). Tuxedo Mask appears to come to his senses during their exchange. Sailor Saturn uses Silent Wall to send Beryl and Tuxedo Mask away. After some more fighting, Uranus and Neptune decide to side with Galaxia and put on the bracelets ("Orleans no Sei Senshi ~Uranus to Neptune no Uragiri~ (Holy Soldiers of Orleans ~Uranus and Neptune's Betrayal~)"). They briefly muse on their relationship before taking Pluto and Saturn's Star Seeds. When Galaxia orders them to take the rest of the Star Seeds, they turn the bracelets on Galaxia, only to discover that Galaxia lacks a Star Seed. Galaxia kills them for their disobedience.

Kakyuu calls Galaxia out for her actions and warns Moon that Galaxia is no longer human. Moon tries to stop Kakyuu from getting involved, but Kakyuu insists that she do this. Kakyuu tells Galaxia that the Senshi have been sacrificing themselves to release the Silver Crystal's power, and reveals to the Senshi that Galaxia's true goal must be to destroy everything. The Dark Kingdom arrive, now unencumbered by Pluto's interference, and are displeased. They present an unharmed Chibi-Moon and reveal that the crystal they presented earlier was fake. They attack Galaxia, who shrugs it off. Kakyuu attacks Galaxia in order to create an opening for the Starlights, but it fails, and Galaxia fatally attacks both Beryl and Kakyuu. Beryl releases Earth's Star Seed before she dies. Kakyuu maintains her defiance as she dies ("Teikou no Hana (Flower of Resistance)").

The Starlights, galvanized by the death of their princess, lead the charge, now aided by the Shitennou and Sailor Moon ("A Shooting Star Light"). They all attack Galaxia. She disappears, but a new, ominous voice takes her place. It refers to the various incarnations of evil that Sailor Moon has defeated over the years as her "siblings" from the Galaxy Cauldron. A power too intense for the remaining Senshi to withstand floods the area, and the entity speaks through the Shitennou and their bracelets. It intends to swallow up the Silver Crystal and revert the universe to a primordial state.

The entity, Sailor Chaos, arrives. Moon refuses to give up and vows to defeat this heart of evil. Chibi-Moon calls out to Chibi-Chibi, who enters and reveals that she is Galaxia ("NEW Mou ii no (Enough)"). She approaches Sailor Chaos, who tries to back away. Moon hears Galaxia's voice warn her of the will of the darkness. Tuxedo Mask returns and returns the Shitennou to normal. The Shitennou kneel before him and exchange apologies. Chaos is heard once more. Now that it has been released from Galaxia's body, it has become true Chaos. With Galaxia's disappearance, the Senshi return. Chaos arrives with Queen Metalia (using Beryl's appearance), and the final battle begins ("Koi no Senshi ja Irarenai (Can't Just Be Soldiers of Love)").

Eternal Sailor Moon defeats Chaos and Metalia. Kakyuu returns, along with Chibi-Chibi, and Kakyuu calls Moon the light of hope. Kakyuu says that the enemies drawn to her were seeking friends, and Moon says that it is because everyone is alone and seeking each other ("Densetsu Seitan (Legendary Birth)").

Third Stage (Marina, '04-'05)

    Shin Kaguya Shima Densetsu (New Legend of Kaguya Island

Act 1

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Sailormoonmusical_seramyu_flyer.jpg
Outside of Juuban Municipal High School, the girls sing "Chikyuu Iro wa Salad Time (The Color of the Earth is Salad Time)", and express their delight that school is out for summer vacation. Ami, Setsuna, and Haruka bring down the mood a little, however, when they announce that everyone will be getting a special training schedule for the summer to improve their skills as Sailor Senshi. As the girls are discussing their faults which need correcting, Chibi-Usa and Mamoru arrive. Mamoru introduces two foreign exchange students from Sumatra, Cern and Serpen, with whom he has made arrangements for an overseas trip for their special training. Cern and Serpen say that their ancestors were people of Artuka, an ancient kingdom, of which only Kaguya Island remains. The two of them add that jewels were recently discovered on the island. The girls become immediately excited about the trip and rush off to get packed; once they are gone, however, Cern and Serpen exchange meaningful looks.

Kraken and Selkie report to Loof Merrow that the holder of the Silver Crystal is among those invited to Kaguya Island. Loof Merrow is pleased that her chance has finally come to revive her people and stop Dark Plasman, and she sings about her plans ("Onna Kaizoku no Sakusen (The Female Pirate's Strategy)"). The group makes plans to prepare a ship to transport the Sailor Senshi to the island, and talk about the imminent arrival of the comet Coatl. At the heart of the comet is the being known as Dark Plasman who, five thousand years ago, tried to destroy the Earth, but was stopped by "Princess Moon." In the process, however, Princess Moon allowed Artuka to be destroyed. The survivors are now prepared for revenge as Coatl returns to the Earth.

Inside of the comet Coatl, Dark Plasman observes that he has arrived back at the Earth, and orders his minions to prepare ("Suisei Coatl no Hibou (The Comet Coatl's Inordinate Ambition)"). Once alone, Dark Menorah sings about her plans, then the scene changes to the deck of the passenger ship, where the girls are all very excited about their trip ("Ankoku no Menorah ~ Yume wo Kaimasu Shima no Tabi (Dark Menorah ~ An Island Trip to Buy Our Dreams)"). As they discuss the features of the ship, the captain makes a brief appearance on deck and charms the girls. After she has left, Chibiusa asks about Ami's telescope, and she explains about the rare sudden appearance of a comet. Ami then lectures at length about the nature of comets, and Usagi wonders if this comet, Coatl, might have visited the planet in the past.

Selkie joins in the conversation, and is introduced by Kern as an anthropologist from his country. The people of Artuka tell the legend of Coatl's previous visit five millenia ago. According to their legend, as the comet caused a massive flood and destruction on the planet, a bamboo rocket arrived from the Moon. Inside the rocket as a princess dressed in jewels who told the prince of Artuka that one of her jewels would save the Earth, and he could choose which one he wanted. Once he chose the diamond above her heart, she turned into a chest of drawers, which gave Kaguya Island its name. After that, Artuka was destroyed by a huge flood. Ami worries about the fact that the comet heralded destruction in the past, and just on cue a huge storm hits and the ship begins to fall apart. Dark Menorah and Dark Mirror arrive, and use their Mirror Plasma attack to prevent the Senshi from transforming. The girls run below deck, and the Artuka people fight back against the invaders.

Sailor Moon arrives on deck, and is soon joined by the Outer Senshi. The five Senshi battle against the invaders with the help of Tuxedo Mask ("Moonlight Justice") as Loof Merrow watches. The two easily shrug off the attacks of the Sailor Senshi, however. Even when the Inner Senshi arrive and the nine of them use Sailor Planet Attack, they remain completely unaffected. Dark Plasman arrives, recognizing Sailor Moon as the Moon Princess from the past, and uses his power to intensify the storm and destroy the ship ("Arashi no Naka no Zenshousen (Skirmish in a Storm)").

On an empty beach, Mick and Hook are amazed to see humans on their island, and wonder about what is going on now ("Natsukashii no wa Naze? (Why Is This Familiar?)"). They run away quickly as Ami, Minako, Rei, and Makoto arrive, looking for their friends. The others soon arrive, safe and sound. After a moment they are joined by the Artuka, who have changed into different costumes, and are welcomed to Kaguya Island by a performance of native music ("Toraware no Artuka (Captive Artuka)"). Kraken leads everyone to an empty house where they can stay, and once alone on the beach, Selkie and Loof Merrow confirm their plans to obtain the Silver Crystal before Coatl arrives.

Back on the comet, Dark Plasman sings about the goal he has been hoping to achieve for the last 5,000 years, while at the same time Dark Menorah sings about how she has also been waiting for something ("5000nen Kaguya Shima ~Dark Plasman-iri Ver. (5,000 Years Kaguya Island ~Version with Dark Plasman~)"). Dark Mirror arrives to bring her partner back to the comet, but Dark Menorah says that she needs to look for her children, as she has been waiting for this long to find them again.

Outside of the cave, Mick and Hook argue over whether the brooches they wear are shining or just reflecting the moonlight. Chibi-Usa interrupts them, and they are surprised she can understand their language. She asks where their mother is, and they reply that she has gone away, but she left them their brooches. The two sing about what they remember of their mother ("Okaa-san te Nan darou? (What's a 'Mother'?)"). Mamoru arrives and chides Chibi-Usa for being out by herself late at night. Loof Merrow emerges from the cave and claims the cats as her own, and when Chibi-Usa asks if she can understand their language, Mamoru and Loof Merrow both laugh it off as a child's fantasy. Loof Merrow and Selkie offer to show them the ruins in the cave, and they follow the cats inside.

The Inner Senshi are already in the cave, being led on a search for jewels by Cern. In the meantime, Serpen and Kraken are with the Outer Senshi for the same purpose. The two groups accidentally run into each other, and join up on a "mystery tour" of the cave, eventually meeting up with Mamoru and the others. When Minako finds a jewel, the others excitedly gather around, but are hit by an unexpected blast of vapor, which the Artuka tribe say is just harmless steam from an underwater volcano. Hotaru faints, however, and the others are concerned. An earthquake hits, forcing everyone out of the cave. Dark Menorah and Dark Mirror are waiting for them and they attack the group, but the Sailor Senshi find themselves unable to transform. The minions of Coatl are stopped when Hotaru arrives, dressed in strange clothing; she introduces herself as Kon, who protects the spirits of the island. Kon chides them for fighting, because war is foolish and unproductive and everyone should love each other, but she is interrupted by Dark Plasman ("Hitosuji no Hikari no Kokoro ~ Yabou no Kao (The Heart of a Ray of Light ~The Face of Ambition~)"). Super Sailor Moon arrives and declares that she will not let him succeed, and he is stunned that she was able to transform.

Act 2

Inside the comet, Dark Plasman wonders how Moon was able to transform. Dark Menorah wonders if there is something wrong with the Dark Crystal they planted inside the ruins, and Plasman orders her to fix it. They sing about how their ambition had been to become a planet, but Princess Moon stopped them and humilated them, and now is their chance to take the Silver Crystal and triumph ("Star Glory").

On the island, the Inner Senshi and Chibi-Usa are worried because they cannot transform, they are out of food, and they do not know what to do ("Hyouchaku Shita Keredo... (We Washed Ashore, But...)"). Usagi arrives with food, followed closely by Mamoru, Setsuna, and Hotaru, and they set up a picnic. Haruka and Michiru arrive, and Haruka reports to Setsuna that there is no sign of the enemy and even the comet has vanished, and they wonder if Hotaru is really all right. Mamoru wonders if the Artuka tribe can really be trusted, but Usagi insists that they are good people, since they supplied the food and did not lie about the jewels. She shows off a ruby that she had found in the cave, and the girls wonder if they should go look in the cave themselves. Just then, the cats arrive, and Chibi-Usa translates their demand that Usagi return the jewel. Usagi and Chibi-Usa argue over it, but are interrupted by the arrival of Loof Merrow and her crew, back in their pirate garb. Usagi immediately offers to return the jewel, but Loof Merrow replies that she is not interested in it (though Hook quickly snatches it back).

The pirates instead demand that she give up the Silver Crystal because they need it to defeat Dark Plasman. Usagi says that they can fight together, but Loof Merrow refuses. She says she is the last princess of the empire of Artuka. 5,000 years ago, Dark Plasman planted crystals of dark plasma in the temple on Artuka, but before he could finish putting all four in place, he was interrupted by Princess Moon shifting the orbit of Coatl. By doing so, she saved the Earth, but caused a flood that swallowed Artuka. For the last 5,000 years Loof Merrow was trapped in ice deep in the Earth, along with all her people, and they are angry at the Moon Princess for her actions. When they go to attack, they are stopped by a rose thrown by Tuxedo Mask. He tells them that the Princess sacrificed the Moon Kingdom for the sake of the Earth, and encourages them to believe in each other ("And Believe In All"). After a brief scuffle between the untransformed Senshi and the pirates, Tuxedo Mask and several others collapse, struck by a sudden fever. Loof Merrow smugly tells Usagi that she will eventually have to give up the Silver Crystal and leaves. Those afflicted head off to find shelter, but Haruka and Michiru stay behind, pretending they are fine because they do not want to show weakness. Haruka wonders if the vapor in the cave was not harmless after all, and the two of them declare that even if they cannot transform, they are still Senshi.

In the cave, Loof Merrow sings about her sorrow and the members of her crew try to reassure her ("Ice Doll"). As they talk, it turns out that Loof Merrow has fallen for Tuxedo Mask, much to the dismay of her crew. While they argue, Chibi-Usa and the two cats arrive unnoticed; Loof Merrow is embarassed to be overheard. Chibi-Usa says she understands, but Mamoru is Usagi's and their love is eternal. When they discover that Chibi-Usa is the Sailor Moon of the future and also has a Silver Crystal, the crew grabs her, but Loof Merrow orders them to leave her alone because she is impressed by the girl's courage in coming alone. Serpen leaves with her to guide her back to the others. Selkie reminds Loof Merrow that the future of Artuka rests on her shoulders, and the princess replies it is too heavy for her. They hear an explosion and rush off to the temple.

On the way back to the camp, Chibi-Usa pauses, upset that everyone feels the need to fight. She sings about a story her mother used to tell her and a nightmare she used to have ("Chibiusa no Umi (Chibi-Usa's Ocean)"). Usagi and Mamoru find the group and Usagi tells Chibi-Usa that she would also like to live in a world without fighting. Serpen says that in ancient Artuka, nobody felt the need to fight, unlike modern humans. Mamoru and Usagi tell the story of Princess Kaguya, saying that since the legend survived it must have come from Artuka, and therefore the modern humans must be descendants of people of Artuka who survived the flood. Mamoru, Usagi, and Chibi-Usa set off to rejoin the others, wondering why they are the only ones who are not ill. The cats then tell Chibi-Usa that they know of the illness and have a cure for it. Serpen quickly leaves then; Mamoru and Chibi-Usa go with the cats to fetch the medicine, and Usagi goes to tell everyone else about it.

Makoto, Rei, Minako, Ami, Setsuna, and Hotaru talk about the mysterious illness, and wonder if it came from the smoke in the cave. They remember that Usagi was right in front of the smoke, though, and wonder why she is not sick. Ami realizes that it must have been a trap, and the Artuka tribe took them to the cave on purpose. The girls begin to despair because they no longer have their powers, but Minako says that even if they are sick and powerless, they are still Sailor Senshi. The girls all resolve to fight, no matter what, and are joined by Haruka, Michiru, and Usagi ("Sailor War").

At the ruins of the temple of Artuka, Loof Merrow and her crew interrupt Dark Menorah as she awakens the Dark Crystal. Dark Mirror arrives and realizes that Loof Merrow has a fragment of the Crystal, and that is why it did not work properly. As the two of them prepare to attack the pirates, Tuxedo Mask, Sailor Chibi Moon, and the two cats arrive and join the fight ("Pinky Typhoon"). Dark Mirror and Dark Menorah once again ignore their attacks, and the former traps the two cats with her power, declaring that they hold fragments of the fourth Dark Crystal within them. Dark Menorah, however, recognizes the brooches they are wearing as fragments of her own ruby, and realizes that they are her missing children ("Yatto Aeta Ne (At Last, We Met)"). Dark Menorah refuses to allow Dark Mirror to kill her children, saying she will have to be killed first. Dark Plasman arrives, saying that the children are merely rubbish, just like humans, and they all should be destroyed. Dark Menorah attacks Dark Plasman to defend the children; he and Dark Mirror both attack in unison and she dies, apologizing to her children for giving them this kind of life.

The Sailor Senshi all arrive, having managed to transform, and confront Dark Plasman. They declare that he cannot become a star because he lacks a heart, and kindness, and love. He says that he hates this solar system because it cast him off, but Sailor Chibi Moon and Tuxedo Mask point out that he did the same thing to Dark Menorah's children, and they lived on with hope. Dark Plasman replies that they simply have not known the darkness of despair, and Sailor Moon tells him that the real darkness is inside his heart. He only laughs and calls Coatl, announcing that the Earth will be destroyed soon. The Sailor Senshi refuse to let him succeed, and they begin to fight as he sings about his ambition to become a shining planet ("Gesshoku no Crime (The Lunar Eclipse's Crime)").

During the battle, though, the Sailor Senshi begin to be overcome by their illness. Sailor Chibi Moon and the cats arrive with the Silver Pollen which will cure them, but the cats are struck down by Dark Plasman and Dark Mirror. Serpen stabs Dark Mirror from behind, but she is unaffected and counter-attacks him, and he collapses. Selkie draws a shining dagger and stabs Dark Mirror with it, and seems to kill her. She then turns to Loof Merrow and admits that the dagger, which was given to her by Princess Moon, is made of a fragment of the Silver Crystal and was what allowed her to live for so long - and now that she has drawn it, she will die. Dark Plasman then attacks; the crystal fragments that were inside the cats form the fourth and final Dark Crystal, and Dark Mirror rises again, declaring that she is the nucleus of the comet and cannot be killed so easily.

Sailor Chibi Moon gives Sailor Moon the Silver Pollen and she heals the Sailor Senshi of their illness. Loof Merrow decides to destroy the temple in order to also destroy the Dark Crystal, saying that preserving this beautiful planet is more important than preserving the royal bloodline of Artuka. The final battle against Dark Plasman and Dark Mirror begins ("Junketsu no Narcissism (The Narcissism of Purity)"). Loof Merrow turns the key which will bring down the temple, and the Sailor Senshi use Sailor Planet Attack to destroy the Dark Crystal. Kon's voice can be heard again then, telling Dark Plasman that he truly does not want to destroy the shine of the Earth, but he is burying his heart in darkness.

Kon tells Sailor Moon that she wanted to use her power to shine in the sky as well, and the island begins to rise up. Sailor Moon calls upon the power of sleeping Sailor Crystals throughout the galaxy, and she and Sailor Chibi Moon use Starlight Honeymoon Double Therapy Kiss to purify Dark Plasman and Dark Mirror, combining the remains of Kaguya Island with Coatl and sending both of them to the far side of the sun to become their own star. Sailor Moon declares that she is sure everyone will be able to become a star someday, as long as they keep hope in their eyes. The Sailor Senshi then all sing of how everyone is loved, and about their hope for the future ("Minna Dareka ni Aisarete (Everyone is Loved By Someone)").

New Myu (Satomi, '13-'15; Hotaru, '16-'17)

    La Reconquista (The Reconquest

Act 1

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/smlr_pamphlet_cover.jpg
Lemures Baba and the Lemures introduce the audience to the Anti Game Show (“Overture ~ Welcome! To the Game Show!”). The Inner Senshi in their civilian forms play the video games, including one cell phone game called ‘’I Am Your Cupid’’. The app offers love advice, so Usagi downloads it onto Ami’s cell phone. As a promotion for an otome game called “Pandemic Love”, an idol group called the Pandemic Four, who play the love interests from the game, perform a song (“Erosion Boy”). The girls are sent home with free copies of the game.The Pandemic Four recognize the girls as the Sailor Senshi; therefore, one of them must have the Ginzuishou. Queen Beryl appears, swearing revenge for her past defeat (“Fukkatsu! Higeki no Joou (Revival! Queen of Tragedy)”). She orders the Dark Kingdom to find and steal the Ginzuishou so that they can offer it to their ruler. Lemures Baba intends to steal energy through the video games to appease her in the meantime. Beryl orders them to take the Senshi alive until they find the Ginzuishou. More than anything else, Beryl wants to rule the Earth alongside Endymion.

Usagi and Mamoru play catch in a park. Usagi tends to throw it wildly, knowing that Mamoru will go and get the ball no matter what. Mamo gently scolds her for being too dependent upon him (“Negai (Wish)”). The other girls show up. They discuss their investigation of the game show because people have been collapsing after playing the games. Usagi gets upset after being scolded for staying up late to play the video game and storms off. Mamoru says to let her be and leaves. The rest of the girls chat, and Minako jokes that real love is three-dimensional. The Pandemic Four show up and invite the girls out on a date, so everyone pairs off (“Koi wa Sanjigen (Love is Three-Dimensional)”). Ami is the least willing to join in, so Zoisite talks to her in order to get her to open up.

Usagi comes back to find that everyone else ran off with the boys. Lemures Baba approaches her and Usagi recognizes her from the show. They briefly bond over being scolded, and Lemures Baba airs her frustrations with Queen Beryl. Usagi mentions that she spent all night playing the game, so Lemures Baba summons the Lemures to attack. Usagi tries to transform, but can’t because she played the video game. Tuxedo Mask arrives to help her (“Sanjou!! Tuxedo Kamen (On the Scene!! Tuxedo Mask)”). The Lemures retreat. Tuxedo Mask offers Usagi some of his power from the Earth. The attack confirms their suspicions about the game show, and they realize that the other girls are in danger from the Pandemic Four.

Elsewhere, Venus, Jupiter, and Mars face off against Kunzite, Nephrite, and Jadeite. None of the other Senshi played the video game, so they can still transform. Jadeite, Nephrite, and Kunzite escape, but Ami and Zoisite are somewhere else by themselves. At first, the Senshi aren’t worried about Ami since she was the first to suspect that something was wrong, but they quickly change their minds and run off to find her.

Ami and Zoisite play shiritori. It starts to rain, so Zoisite leaves to fetch an umbrella. Ami gets nervous. Both Ami and Zoisite realize that their feelings are strangely familiar, and Ami consults the “I Am Your Cupid” app for help (“Memory Duo”). Zoisite seems reluctant to follow through on the plan. Before he can do anything, the other Shitennou arrive. Ami attempts to transform, but the Shitennou grab her. Sailor Moon arrives to help Ami and is quickly joined by the other Senshi (“Soroibumi!! Shiratsuki Gonin Onna (The Lineup!! 5 Women of the White Moon)”). Moon tries to attack them, but her power is still weak. Zoisite manages to escape with Ami. Tuxedo Mask intervenes and demands that the Shitennou introduce themselves. Tuxedo Mark says Zoisite's name despite the latter not being present, and appears to remember something. Beryl appears and identifies him as Endymion. Tuxedo Mask offers to go with Beryl in order to ensure the Senshi’s safety and promises Moon that he will rescue Ami. Beryl attacks the Senshi. Lemures Baba tries to get the Ginzuishou from them, but Beryl calls it off since she promised Endymion that she would let them go. Beryl invites them to come to her palace with the Ginzuishou.

Moon blames herself for Ami and Tuxedo Mask's kidnapping and worries because she doesn’t know where the Ginzuishou is. The Senshi hear Queen Serenity's voice. Queen Serenity guides the Senshi to the Moon (“Tsuki he no Kaidan (Stairway to the Moon)”). Moon feels her power come back, and the Senshi use the Sailor Teleport to travel to the Moon.

In the Dark Kingdom palace, Beryl has dressed an unconscious Tuxedo Mask in Endymion’s armor. The Shitennou are distressed by how Tuxedo Mask knew Zoisite’s name and reacted to hearing their names. Zoisite visits Ami in her cell. Neither he nor Ami want to fight each other. Ami and the Shitennou feel as if they are on the verge of remembering something. The other three generals confront Beryl directly about when and how they became her subordinates. Beryl puts a stronger spell on them to ensure their loyalty. Queen Metalia calls for Beryl and demands that she bring the Ginzuishou as soon as possible. Even Beryl seems concerned about Metalia growing more and more demanding, but there is no turning back.

The Senshi find a sword in a stone on the Moon. Queen Serenity asks them to remove it, which Jupiter does in a single one-handed pull, revealing that Queen Serenity's will lives on in the sword. Queen Serenity asks if they remember their past lives. Both Queen Serenity and Queen Beryl recount the arrival of Queen Metalia in a meteor and the resulting fall of the Silver Millennium. Queen Serenity charges Sailor Moon with the task of sealing away Metalia once and for all with the Ginzuishou, and the Senshi with protecting their princess. The Senshi rally around Sailor Moon, and both sides prepare for the final confrontation (“Sailor Battle La Reconquista”). Queen Beryl calls upon Metalia’s power to awaken Tuxedo Mask as Endymion, who is now under her thrall.

Act 2

In the past, Princess Serenity frets about getting ready for a visit from Endymion. Queen Serenity offers her one of her dresses. The Senshi and servants receive Endymion and his entourage. Endymion, the Shitennou, and Senshi tease Zoisite and Mercury. Serenity and Endymion greet each other excitedly, and everyone pairs off to dance at the party. Zoisite takes Mercury aside and warns her about Queen Beryl and the other Shitennou, who he suspects are working with her. The Shitennou brand Zoisite a traitor and reveal that the Moon is about to be invaded. Zoisite is killed for his betrayal, and the invasion begins (“Tsuki to Chikyuu (Moon and Earth)”). Queen Beryl claims that the people of the Moon are trying to take over the Earth. Endymion and the Senshi jump into action to defend the princess and queen. Princess Serenity tries to stop the fighting, and Endymion dies protecting her from Beryl. In her grief, Princess Serenity kills herself with his sword. Queen Serenity uses all of her power to seal Metalia and the Moon away.

In the present, Sailor Moon has regained her memories of the past. The Senshi have also regained their memories. To prevent the past from repeating itself, they secretly plan to fight the Dark Kingdom without Sailor Moon.

The Dark Kingdom holds a wedding ceremony for Beryl and Endymion. During the festivities, Zoisite sneaks away to set Ami free. He is caught by the rest of the Shitennou and killed for his betrayal. Kunzite finds a blue stone where Zoisite died. He presents the stone to Beryl, who gives it to Endymion as a gift. Venus, Jupiter, and Mars arrive before Beryl has a chance to kiss Endymion. Sailor Moon also shows up because she also went alone to protect everyone else. Mercury, newly freed, also joins the battle. The “I Am Your Cupid” app interrupts them briefly. Beryl demands the Ginzuishou, and Moon says that she doesn’t have it. The newly reunited Senshi fight the Dark Kingdom (“We are the Pretty Guardians”). Mercury is noticeably upset when Kunzite reveals that the Shitennou killed Zoisite.

Moon demands that Beryl return Tuxedo Mask. Beryl introduces him as Endymion, who now calls himself “the Dark Kingdom’s strongest soldier”. Endymion attacks the Senshi. He appears to be affectionate toward Sailor Moon, but he uses the opportunity to choke her and demands the Ginzuishou. Moon begs him to come back to his senses, but to no avail. She begins to cry, and her tears begin to shine and solidify into the Ginzuishou. Endymion advances to seize the Ginzuishou. Sailor Moon takes up the holy sword and fights Endymion. She remembers Mamoru’s words and finds the strength to strike Endymion down (“Unmei (Fate)”). She tells him that she loves him and stabs herself with the holy sword with the hope that they will be reborn and fall in love again.

The Senshi, Shitennou, and Beryl are all distressed by this turn of events. Metalia demands the Ginzuishou once more. Beryl tries to take it from Sailor Moon, but is held back by the Shitennou, who have returned to their senses and swear to atone for their actions. They sacrifice themselves to kill Beryl. Metalia swallows up Sailor Moon to force her to release the Ginzuishou’s power within her core. The Senshi try to fend Metalia off with a Sailor Planet Attack, but it fails and Sailor Moon disappears.

Venus rallies the rest of the Senshi to give their lives to awaken Sailor Moon (“Kakugo (Resolution)”). Sailor Moon wakes up within Metalia. She hears her friends’ encouragement before the last of their power leaves them and they die. Metalia taunts her and Moon begins to worry about how to release the Ginzuishou’s power. Mamoru wakes up and discovers that the zoisite stone saved his life. He praises Sailor Moon for doing the right thing and vows to help her. Moon overcomes her doubts with Mamoru’s support and releases the power of the Ginzuishou (“Inori (Prayer)”). At first, Metalia absorbs its power. Moon hears the Senshi’s voices and continues to pray. The moon shines brighter, and Moon gathers enough power to seal Metalia away.

Metalia disappears, leaving Mamoru and Sailor Moon sitting together. Moon begins to mourn her friends. They reappear, brought back by the Ginzuishou's power, and share a tearful reunion. Queen Serenity’s spirit appears once more to remind Sailor Moon that the power of the Ginzuishou is within her and asks her to remember that she is still an ordinary girl (“Wasurenaide (Don’t Forget)”).

    Petite Étrangère (Little Stranger

Act 1

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/petiteetrangere_pamphlet_thumb.jpg
A little girl is teased for being the Queen’s daughter but not being able to produce the Ginzuishou. She sings a song to herself to cheer herself up (“Abracadabra”). She holds up her mother’s Ginzuishou to the light and admires it. An explosion happens in the distance and she runs to her mother. Her mother demands to know who is there and is attacked. A camera zooms in on the image of her, standing defiant, as a man, Prince Demand, looks at her image.

Another woman, Esmeraude, isn’t pleased that Demand is fixated on the woman in the image. Saphir admonishes Demand for going overboard with the attack. The power of the Jakokuzuishou has turned 30th-century Earth into a dead planet, but the Ginzuishou protected the queen and castle. The group, the Black Moon Clan, plans to send Droids back in time to rewrite history and take over the Earth (“Codename: Replay Operation”). A shadowy figure appears and reveals that they have found the Ginzuishou on Earth in the 21st century. Esmeraude volunteers to go into the past to track it and the “Rabbit” down.

The little girl wakes up screaming from a nightmare and clings to Mamoru. Usagi is not pleased with her attachment to him, especially because she calls him “Mamo-chan”. Usagi doesn’t trust this mysterious little girl who fell from the sky because she won’t say who she is or where she comes from (“Petite Etrangere”). Mamoru calls her “Chibi-Usa” and offers to let her stay at his house for the time being. Mamoru wants to keep an eye on her since no one will believe that she fell out of the sky. Usagi is concerned because she noticed that Chibi-Usa is wearing a pendant a lot like the one she keeps the Ginzuishou on. Chibi-Usa gets ready for bed and Mamoru reminds Usagi to get ready since she’s singing at a festival tomorrow.

The next day, the other four girls perform at the Azabu Juuban Festival with Rei on lead vocals as “Usagi Band” (“Eye Candy”). Usagi arrives after the end of the performance because she was so worried that she couldn’t sleep at all. Chibi-Usa tags along and the other girls fawn over her. The Azabu High School dance team (really Esmeraude and the Droids in disguise) starts their performance (“We Are Your Nemesis”). Makoto realizes that they are impostors because one of them called her “Mako-chan”. The group tries to transform, but their power is sucked away by Esmeraude and the Droids. The Droids grab Chibi-Usa and attempt to make off with her, but Tuxedo Mask intervenes and drives them off, killing Esmeraude in the process (“Sanjou! Tuxedo Kamen (On the Scene! Tuxedo Mask)”). Chibi-Usa runs to him. Usagi demands to know where Chibi-Usa came from because the enemies were clearly after her. Chibi-Usa yells that she didn’t do anything. Tuxedo Mask insists on accompanying Chibi-Usa. Before they leave, Usagi asks Chibi-Usa to confirm that she isn’t an enemy and and asks her how they are supposed to trust her if she won’t tell them anything. Usagi runs off and Tuxedo Mask reassures Chibi-Usa before leaving.

The girls discuss whether or not to trust Chibi-Usa. Minako is skeptical, but Ami feels that Chibi-Usa is very scared of something and empathizes with her. She wants to believe in Chibi-Usa because she remembers how it felt when Usagi believed in her. (“Belief ~ Shinjiru to wa (Believing Is...)”) The other girls gradually come around. Rei shares that she saw a black moon symbol in the sacred fire, and Makoto connects it to the symbol on Esmeraude’s forehead.

Rubeus and Saphir strategize. Rubeus has been ordered by Demand and Wiseman to fight the Senshi next, but Saphir wants him to slow down. Saphir mentions that Demand has been acting strangely since he started listening to Wiseman and doesn’t like the idea of putting everyone in danger to get the Ginzuishou when they already have the power of the Jakokuzuishou; he would rather conquer through infiltration with his near-flawless Droid copies of human beings. Demand enters and Saphir urges him to take the Senshi seriously and forget about the Ginzuishou and “that woman”. Demand snaps at him to not interfere and sends Rubeus off. He looks at an image of Usagi and vows to get what he desires.

Usagi is deeply unsettled about an enemy getting close and the feeling that Mamoru is pulling away from her. Mamoru tries to cheer Chibi-Usa up and gently asks her her name (“Yokan (Premonition)”). She finally reveals that her name is Small Lady and that her home is “somewhere far away”. The key is not a key for her house, but a key that she can’t go home without. Chibi-Usa evades his question about the crystal around her neck, but asks him about how strong Sailor Moon is despite being scolded in real life. She shares her loneliness and insecurity about not having any powers. Chibi-Usa asks if Sailor Moon will help her mom. Usagi sees something emerge from the clouds, and Mamoru sees a vision of a metropolis exploding. Chibi-Usa screams about her mother and runs away.

Chibi-Usa encounters the droids and Rubeus and Mamoru rushes in to help her. The Sailor Senshi arrive to fight them off, and Rubeus responds by sending out Droid versions of the Sailor Senshi ("Shiratsuki Gonin Onna (5 Women of the White Moon)”). Sailor Moon has difficulty using her attack. Once the Droid Senshi are defeated, Rubeus uses the Jakokuzuishou to steal the Senshi’s energy and reveals that he is part of the Black Moon Clan and what they are after. He demands the Ginzuishou from Chibi-Usa. With his next attack, Rubeus kidnaps Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter. He overwhelms the rest of the group at first, but Tuxedo Mask hears a voice and manages to unleash a new attack. Rubeus manages to kidnap Tuxedo Mask as well before Venus finishes him off, leaving Moon, Venus, and Chibi-Usa alone. Moon blames herself for everyone else being kidnapped. Venus gently, but firmly insists that Chibi-Usa tell them everything. Chibi-Usa tells them about the explosion in the 30th century and that she has her mother’s Ginzuishou from the future. Moon asks Chibi-Usa to take her to the 30th century. Venus reassures Chibi-Usa and asks that she also take her to the future. Chibi-Usa uses the time-space key to take Moon and Venus to the future.

A lone Sailor Senshi, Sailor Pluto, senses the disturbance in space-time. (“Chronos Guardian (Who Goes There?)”) She confronts Moon and Venus and prepares to execute them for disturbing space-time, but relents when Chibi-Usa tells her that she brought them there. Pluto scolds her for stealing her key and going back in time, but is relieved to see that she is safe. Pluto thanks Sailor Moon for guiding Chibi-Usa there safety and lets slip that Chibi-Usa is a princess. Pluto opens the Door of Time for the trio and they enter the 30th century.

They enter the Crystal Palace and Chibi-Usa shows them her mother, Neo Queen Serenity, who is asleep inside a crystal. King Endymion reveals that she is in fact Usagi’s future self, which means that Chibi-Usa is her and Mamoru’s future daughter, Usagi Small Lady Serenity. The crystal protected Neo Queen Serenity, but King Endymion and the Sailor Senshi were rendered unconscious by the attack; the Endymion before them now is only a projection. King Endymion tells them more about the Dead Moon Clan and their attack on Crystal Tokyo with the power of the Jakokuzuishou. On Nemesis, the Senshi feel as if the planet is somehow alive (“Silver and Black”). Venus asks if Chibi-Usa could use the Ginzuishou since Neo Queen Serenity is unable to, but King Endymion tells her than Chibi-Usa has no power of her own. Chibi-Usa apologizes and runs away, upset. Demand orders that the Senshi be locked in the dungeon and sends the Droids after Chibi-Usa. Demand praises Saphir for successfully replacing Rubeus and Esmeraude with Droids. Saphir tries to reason with Demand that listening to Wiseman is dangerous, but Demand rebuffs him once again.

King Endymion keeps a vigil next to Neo Queen Serenity while Pluto prays from the Door of Time ("Todokanu Omoi (Unconveyable Feelings)"). Chibi-Usa runs to hug Pluto and asks her to promise that they will always be friends. They sing the song that Pluto taught her together (“Abracadabra (Dark Reprise)”). Once Chibi-Usa cheers up, Pluto sends her off to her friends. Before Chibi-Usa leaves, King Endymion arrives to look for her. Endymion asks Pluto to help the other Sailor Senshi. Chibi-Usa watches Pluto’s interactions with Endymion from afar and notices that she has never seen Pluto look so happy before. Her loneliness and insecurity wells up again as Wiseman appears and leads her into the darkness with promises of belonging somewhere. Moon catches up to Chibi-Usa, but it is too late. Chibi-Usa disappears with Wiseman and Sailor Moon is seized by the Black Moon Clan.

Act 2

Usagi has a dream of Tuxedo Mask running off with another woman. She wakes up in a dress next to Demand, who introduces himself and the Black Moon Castle on Nemesis. Usagi demands to know where her friends are. Demand demonstrates his control over Usagi's actions, to her horror ("Junpaku no Megami (Pure White Goddess)"). Demand shares his disdain for the stagnated society of Crystal Tokyo. He corners Usagi on the bed and kisses her. She manages to push him off and tries to transform, but fails. He gives her a token that allows her to move through the palace freely, but not before letting her know that he has also taken Chibi-Usa and Tuxedo Mask in a “different” way.

Venus asks Endymion why they had never heard of Pluto before. He explains that Pluto’s mission is to guard the Door of Time, and that breaking any of the three taboos of her duty would result in her own death. Endymion struggles to stay in his form and speculates that something strange is happening to Tuxedo Mask. He asks Venus to keep believing before he disappears. Venus calls out to Moon, who hears her within the palace. Usagi worries about her friends, who hear her voice. Usagi finds the resolve to search for them, and they tell her to keep believing and do what she always does (“One Heart”). Usagi finds strength in her friends’ words and regains her self-confidence.

Usagi stumbles into Saphir’s lab and asks him where her friends are. Saphir starts to choke Usagi, but Demand interferes. Saphir expresses his frustration with Demand’s inability to stick with Saphir’s plan and obsession with Neo Queen Serenity. He tells the Esmeraude and Rubeus droids that they are droids and controls their actions with their programmed loyalty to prove his point. Demand and Saphir continue to argue. Saphir reveals that he killed Demand and replaced him with a Droid because he interfered with his plans. Saphir orders Demand to kill Usagi. Demand initially obeys, but tells her to run before he is killed by Saphir. Usagi is upset by Saphir’s actions, but Saphir justifies his actions because Demand’s obsession with the Ginzuishou and Neo Queen Serenity drove him to it ("Dark Madness"). He goes after Usagi again, but she hears Neo Queen Serenity’s voice telling her to combine their powers. The Ginzuishou begins to shine, and Usagi transforms into Sailor Moon. She reawakens Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter’s powers and calls them and Venus to her location. Saphir orders the Droids to kill them, and the battle begins (“We Are the Pretty Guardian (Instrumental)”).

Saphir calls out to Wiseman and asks him for more power, only to be knocked aside. Wiseman reveals that the Black Moon Clan were just pawns and that he had no intention of allowing them to rewrite history. Saphir tries to unmask him, but Wiseman is nothing but a rotted corpse. In his place appears an apparition calling itself Death Phantom, the criminal sent to Nemesis for attempting to take over Earth. In time, he assimilated with the planet Nemesis.

He introduces his new avatar, a woman who calls herself Black Lady, the queen of Nemesis (“When Black Lady Sings”). Death Phantom’s power allowed Chibi-Usa to grow up and gain exceptional power. She summons a brainwashed Tuxedo Mask to her side and lets him fight the Senshi. Moon tries to reason with him, but to no avail. Black Lady taunts Moon with the fact that he now loves her, to which Moon responds that it isn't love at all. Black Lady responds by shooting a second Jakokuzuishou into the 30th century Earth and continues to lash out at the Senshi, fueled by her pain. Black Lady shoots a third crystal, to be followed by a fourth, but Sailor Moon uses the power of the Ginzuishou, which causes the Crystal Palace to shine.

Moon makes a last-ditch effort to reach out to Black Lady to prevent her from firing a fourth crystal, which would end the world ("Last Wish"). Moon apologizes for not seeing how much pain Chibi-Usa was in. Black Lady starts to falter. Moon briefly manages to hold Black Lady, who attacks her at close range. Wiseman orders Black Lady to take Moon's Ginzuishou. Black Lady, now shaken, lets Tuxedo Mask to retrieve the Ginzuishou instead. Before he can give the crystal to Black Lady, Saphir steals both, intending to use their power to end all life on earth. Before he can touch the crystals together, Pluto orders time to stop. She allows Tuxedo Mask to move and begs him to return the crystals to Sailor Moon. The other Senshi move and Moon realizes that Pluto was the one who saved them.

When time begins to flow normally again, Pluto kills Saphir. She walks toward Black Lady, but collapses. Venus asks her why she stopped time when it was effectively suicide. Pluto begs Moon to save Small Lady. She thanks Small Lady for coming to visit her and tells her that she was happy to be her friend ("Not Loneliness"). Pluto dies in Tuxedo Mask's arms. Black Lady breaks down in tears for her only friend. Her tears shine and crystallize into her own Ginzuishou, allowing her to transform into a Sailor Senshi. Chibi-Usa wants to show Pluto that she finally transformed, but cannot. She holds Pluto's staff and cries.

Moon has a brief moment of doubt and wonders if the Ginzuishou invites chaos. Tuxedo Mask reassures her to follow the path she believes in and swears to support her. The Senshi rally around Sailor Moon, who vows to punish Death Phantom ("Ai no Starshine (Starshine of Love)"). Chibi-Moon combines her power with everyone else's, and they defeat Death Phantom together.

Neo Queen Serenity thanks everyone for their help. Chibi-Usa prepares to leave, and she and Usagi bicker about how much Usagi is going to miss her. The two of them hug and cry it out together before everyone else arrives to see her off. Chibi-Usa admits that she loves Usagi the most before she runs away and uses her time key to return to the future. Usagi begins to cry, and Mamoru reassures her that they will meet again ("Pretty Dreams ~ Mata Aeru Hi Made (Until the Day We Meet Again)"). At the end of the curtain call, Chibi-Usa presents a letter from Neo Queen Serenity to Usagi asking her to keep taking care of Chibi-Usa.

    Un Nouveau Voyage (A New Journey

Act 1

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/smunv_pamphlet.jpg
As screaming fans cheer for an encore, Haruka stumbles offstage after having a vision. Another girl backstage, Michiru, says that their time has run out. Haruka says they have to find “them” or else the world will end. Haruka goes back out for the last song of a farewell concert while Michiru watches from backstage and muses about their duty (“Last Dance”).

The Inner Senshi talk about Haruka as they leave the concert. Minako is upset that Haruka decided to quit being a singer so suddenly - only two years after his debut. The concert was held at Infinity Academy, which is having its entrance tryouts the same day. The student council welcomes the girls to the tryouts (“The Road to Mugen Gakuen (Infinity Academy)”). Each of the girls demonstrates their talents in a particular area: Rei in religious philosophy, Ami in science, Minako in dancing and singing (but not without some resistance from the course leader), and Makoto in gardening.

Despite her best efforts, Usagi doesn’t qualify for any of the courses. Her friends leave with the course leaders, so Usagi wanders around alone. She hears the sound of violin music just before she happens to encounter and recognize Haruka. Haruka asks if Usagi tried out and tells her that it might be better to stay away from the school. Apparently the farewell concert was a ploy to get more students to try out. Usagi asks why Haruka quit. Haruka brushes it off as “something I had to do” before changing the topic of conversation to flirting with Usagi about her hairstyle.

Michiru joins Haruka with a gentle scolding for flirting with other girls. However, Michiru agrees that Usagi’s hairstyle is cute. Haruka introduces Michiru and Usagi recognizes her as a genius violinist. Haruka and Usagi shake hands and pause as if they both felt something.Chibi-Usa and Mamoru interrupt them as Chibi-Usa accuses Usagi of “cheating” on Mamoru (“In a Flurry”). Mamoru doesn’t take it to heart. Haruka and Michiru take the opportunity to leave while Usagi and Chibi-Usa bicker. Mamoru brought Chibi-Usa to Infinity Academy so that she could try out. Chibi-Usa wants to attend because she made a friend who goes there. As it turns out, Chibi-Usa qualified for all five courses. Chibi-Usa introduces her friend, Tomoe Hotaru, the daughter of the founder of Infinity Academy. Hotaru collapses and struggles to breathe. Mamoru and Chibi-Usa escort her to the nurse’s office, leaving Usagi alone again.

Ami takes a tour of the planetarium, which displays the Tau Star System. The student council member with her attacks her to take her Hostie. The rest of the girls are brought in. The student council's attack leaves them too weak to transform. The student council catches on that the girls are not human beings since they managed to withstand their magic. Makoto tries to fight them off to the best of her ability, but is knocked down. The student council president reveals that the cost of attending the academy is one’s soul - their Hostie - while leaving their empty bodies for the academy’s use.

Sailor Moon arrives to rescue her friends. The student council send creatures called Daimon to attack Sailor Moon, but she manages to defeat them in a single attack. The student council is impressed with her power and leaves to report back to Kaolinite. The Inner Senshi regroup and identify Infinity Academy as a new enemy. Elsewhere, Haruka puts two and two together and realizes that Usagi is Sailor Moon. Michiru and Haruka have to find the “God of Destruction” before the third Talisman appears.

The Death Busters prepare for Mistress 9, their queen, to awaken (“The Awakening”). Pharaoh 90 tells them to collect more superior Hostie. Their time is limited by the dwindling power of the Taioron Crystal and the impending destruction of the Tau System. If Mistress 9 awakens, she will call the Tau System to Earth, which will allow Pharaoh 90 to take the world’s energy and turn it into the Death Busters’ second world. The Hostie they have gathered so far is not enough to awaken Mistress 9. Their plan to lure students to the academy and have the Witches 5 pose as the student council to steal their Hostie has worked so far, but Sailor Moon is an unexpected hitch in that plan. The Witches 5 report that she has a light that rivals the power of the Taioron Crystal; they could revive Mistress 9 with that power. Professor Tomoe warns them that he will not tolerate further failure. Mimete, Eudial, Tellu, and Viluy wait for their superiors and Cyprine to leave before they gossip over tea. Cyprine was recently made the leader of the Witches 5, leading to friction between her and the other four. Viluy proposes that they steal Sailor Moon’s Hostie without Cyprine.

Professor Tomoe sees himself as someone chosen by God and seeks to make more Daimons like Kaolinite and Witches 5 (“Chosen One”). He visits Hotaru, who is currently suffering from a fit despite taking her medicine. He gives her a piece of the Taioron Crystal as an amulet to ease her pain, which appears to help. Professor Tomoe vows to help her return to good health, if not better. Hotaru begins to practice playing the piano. She is plagued with feeling that she is not herself, as if her body and soul are mismatched (“Who Am I?”).

Usagi and Chibi-Usa talk about Chibi-Usa’s friendship with Hotaru on their way to investigate Infinity Academy. Chibi-Usa notices that Usagi is in low spirits. Usagi deflects it by claiming that it’s because Chibi-Usa accused her of cheating. Usagi has a meeting with Mamoru, so she tries to get Chibi-Usa to go on ahead. Before they can go their separate ways, they are interrupted by Eudial, Mimete, Viluy, and Tells, now calling themselves the Witches 4. Chibi-Usa manages to run away to get help. Usagi recognizes them as the Student Council ("Mystic Beauty"). Cyprine shows up and scolds them for their insubordination, then orders them to capture Usagi.

The other Senshi arrive with Minako impersonating Sailor Moon and Chibi-Usa impersonating Sailor Venus to trick the Witches 5 into letting Usagi go (“Shiratsuki Gonin Onna (5 Women of the White Moon)”). Unfortunately, the deception is revealed when one of her odango falls off. The Senshi and Witches 5 struggle before Tuxedo Mask intervenes (“When Destiny Calls”). Usagi transforms and joins the battle alongside Tuxedo Mask. The Senshi manage to dispatch Tellu, Eudial, and Viluy, but Mimete and a Daimon seize Chibi-Moon. Cyprine realizes that Chibi-Moon’s brooch has a power just like Sailor Moon’s, and decides to take her instead. Before she can, she is interrupted by Sailor Uranus and Neptune. They rescue Chibi-Moon and kill the Daimons along with Mimete and Cyprine (“Eye of the Storm”). The Inner Senshi are amazed by how easily Uranus and Neptune won the battle, but the latter have no intention of staying around to chat. Uranus even attacks them to force them to back off, which leaves the Inner Senshi shaken.

Kaolinite watches the Sailor Senshi through her reflecting pool. She sees a new light - the light of destruction - within Mistress 9’s body. Neptune and Rei also see the light of destruction in their mirror and sacred fire, respectively. All three are unsettled by this omen and feel that something is about to happen (“The Time is Near”). Rei has trouble concentrating further on meditation because Mamoru and her friends are getting ready to eat dinner. Rei finally gives up and joins the rest of the group. Chibi-Usa has invited Hotaru to join them for dinner. Everyone gives Hotaru a little bit of their food. Chibi-Usa gives Hotaru a gift: a replica of the legendary Holy Grail that she made in her art class. She based it off of her mother’s Grail. Chibi-Usa and Hotaru leave to play outside.

The rest of the group get down to business. Minako wants to consider Uranus and Neptune enemies because they attacked them earlier. Rei feels similarly. Usagi is quiet and has barely even touched her food. Minako suggests that it’s because she was caught cheating, which Minako heard from Chibi-Usa. Usagi goes outside to think. Ami notes that Usagi has been down ever since the two new Senshi appeared.

Outside, Usagi runs into Haruka, who came to warn her to stay away from Infinity Academy. Usagi has already figured out that Haruka is Sailor Uranus and begs her to tell her more about what is going on. Haruka explains that Infinity Academy is the enemy’s base and that the Daimons steal people’s Hostie, or souls. The Daimons are the empty bodies injected with human and animal genes. Usagi wants to help, but Haruka insists that it’s too dangerous because the other Senshi won’t be able to beat the God of Destruction. She doesn’t want to put Usagi in harm’s way (“Making Up With You”). Mamoru sees them and asks if Haruka did anything to her. Usagi breaks down sobbing and tells him that Haruka is Sailor Uranus. She apologizes to Mamoru for her interactions with Haruka. Mamoru reassures her that he believes in her, but he can get a little jealous. They head back to the shrine together.

Chibi-Usa and Hotaru play the piano together in Hotaru’s room. Hotaru goes to get the sheet music for a song that she wants to play for Chibi-Usa, but she starts to have another fit. She asks Chibi-Usa to bring her the amulet. It doesn’t work, so Chibi-Usa lets her touch her brooch, which stops the pain completely. Hotaru asks her about it, and Chibi-Usa tells her that the Ginzuishou is inside it. At the mention of the Ginzuishou, Hotaru reaches out for it again, speaking in a strange voice. She quickly snaps out of it. Professor Tomoe enters to give Hotaru her checkup, so Chibi-Usa leaves.

Professor Tomoe asks Hotaru about Chibi-Usa and says that she should invite her over again. Hotaru tells him that the amulet stopped working and that it feels like there is something else inside her. He implores her to wait just a little bit longer. Hotaru begins to change for her checkup, revealing scars all over her body. Chibi-Usa returns for her bag and accidentally intrudes. Flustered, she apologizes and runs away. Hotaru fears that she has driven away her only friend, and Chibi-Usa blames herself for hurting her friend’s feelings by running away in shock (“Chiisa na Kagayaki (A Small Sparkle)”).

Uranus and Neptune confront Kaolinite on the rooftops of the Infinity District. Chibi-Usa, Usagi, and Mamoru happen to see the battle. Uranus and Neptune end up surrounded by seemingly endless Daimons since Kaolinite keeps summoning them. Moon, Chibi-Moon, and Tuxedo Mask arrive to help them over Uranus and Neptune’s protests. The rest of the Senshi join the battle shortly thereafter to support Sailor Moon. Kaolinite uses her magic to amplify the tensions between the Inner Senshi and Uranus and Neptune and manipulate them into fighting each other (“Hoshi-tachi no Tairitsu (Confrontation of the Planets)”).

Sailor Pluto breaks up the fighting by attacking Kaolinite. Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto reveal that the God of Destruction appears when their Talismans - the Garnet Orb, the Space Sword, and the Deep Aqua Mirror - are brought together. Chibi-Moon rushes forward for a tearful reunion with Pluto, who was revived in the 21st century by Neo Queen Serenity. Moon tries once again to ask Uranus to let the Inner Senshi join them, but this time Pluto refuses her. She reveals that the “God of Destruction” is Sailor Saturn, who has been reborn as Hotaru. If she awakens, the world will end. The Outer Senshi’s mission is to kill Hotaru in order to completely seal Saturn away. Moon objects - that objection was precisely why Uranus and Neptune insisted on acting alone. Chibi-Moon also can’t bear the thought of Hotaru being hurt and runs away.

Hotaru plays the piano in her room (“Piano Symphony, 1st Movement: Scat of Destruction”). Kaolinite and Tomoe are determined to use the Ginzuishou to awaken Mistress 9 (“Piano Symphony, 2nd Movement: Awakening”). Pluto observes that something has gone wrong for Saturn to be reborn, and the Outer Senshi resolve to carry out their duty, terrible though it may be. The Inner Senshi swear to protect both Hotaru and the world. Mars, Neptune, and Kaolinite feel a sense of urgency based on their respective visions. Chibi-Moon runs to Hotaru and tells her to run away. Hotaru steals the brooch, triggering a transformation. The Outer Senshi realize with horror that Sailor Saturn hasn’t awakened because the Talismans haven’t activated. Mistress 9 gleefully tells Pharaoh 90 that she has awakened as Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask desperately try to get Chibi-Moon to wake up.

Act 2

In a flashback to four years ago, one of Professor Tomoe’s attempts to create a Daimon ends in failure. His assistant, Kaori, is not sure that creating a creature with two sets of DNA is possible, but Professor Tomoe speculates that it would be if one of those sets was human. Professor Tomoe seeks to elevate humanity to a higher level of existence by creating a super-organism. Hotaru excitedly enters the laboratory to show her father that she passed her piano exam. Suddenly, the power goes out. Tellu briefly restores the power, but then an explosion rocks the laboratory. The explosion kills Hotaru, sending Professor Tomoe into a state of shock. A mysterious voice speaks to him and offers to save Hotaru and the rest of his staff on the condition that they will all be implemented with the DNA of beings from the planet Tau. Desperate and presented with an opportunity to create his super-organisms, Professor Tomoe agrees. Haruka and Michiru explain that Hotaru miraculously came back to life, but her body was so badly damaged that most of her internal organs had to be replaced. To save Chibi-Usa, Hotaru must be defeated because the invaders will take over the Earth with the Ginzuishou’s power. They are determined to save not only Chibi-Usa, but the whole world as well.

While Usagi and Mamoru keep a vigil by Chibi-Usa’s side, Pluto laments Chibi-Usa’s current state and prays for Usagi and Mamoru to not give up (“Kibou wo Sutezu ni (Don’t Give Up Hope)”). As Chibi-Usa fades, Mamoru starts to use his life force to keep her alive. Usagi feels trapped between wanting to help Chibi-Usa but not wanting to kill Hotaru. Mamoru urges her to go and get the Ginzuishou back. The Inner and Outer Senshi separately vow to do all that they can. Usagi returns to her friends.

Mistress 9 takes Chibi-Usa’s Ginzuishou into her own body and marvels at its power. Pharaoh 90 orders her to use her power to summon the Tau Star System as soon as possible, which she intends to do so that she and Pharaoh 90 can inhabit Earth in their original forms. They have no more use for Professor Tomoe. Professor Tomoe and Kaolinite enter and kneel before her. Mistress 9 thanks Professor Tomoe for helping her awaken and sends Kaolinite to take Sailor Moon’s Ginzuishou. She notices that three “rats” have snuck in and sets off to test her power on them.

Professor Tomoe is elated that Hotaru’s body transformed into the “super-organism” that he desired. He tells Kaolinite that she should start to worry about her body soon, but Kaolinite knows better and is determined to keep living. She uses a spell to revive the Witches 5. As soon as the Inner Senshi arrive in the 13th floor of the basement, Kaolinite creates the Infinite Labyrinth, which separates them from each other. Cyprine immobilizes Sailor Moon and forces her to watch helplessly as the Witches 5 tempt the Inner Senshi with visions of their dreams and desires beyond fighting to force them to lose their morale. Mars tries to fight, but Eudial uses the fact that new, stronger Senshi have appeared to get her to lose faith. Cyprine blames Sailor Moon for drawing her friends into battles instead of letting them pursue their own dreams before letting her go. Alone in the maze, Sailor Moon remembers that her friends always thought of her before themselves and protected her. She swears to use the light that they have given her to save them in return (“Hitosuji no Hikari (Ray of Light)”). Sailor Moon shatters the illusions and kills the Witches 5 in a single attack. She tries to apologize for making it so that the others couldn’t pursue their dreams, but they insist that they would rather fight because she gives them the strength to do so.

Kaolinite is astonished that they managed to break her strongest spell. The Inner Senshi try to use the Sailor Planet Attack, but are interrupted with a blast from Mistress 9, who arrives accompanied by Professor Tomoe and some Daimons. Kaolinite tries to beg for forgiveness. Sailor Moon calls Mistress 9 “Hotaru”, but she responds that Hotaru has been destroyed and introduces herself as Mistress 9, queen of the planet Tau. The Inner Senshi demand to know where Chibi-Usa’s Ginzuishou is, so Mistress 9 demonstrates the power it gave her by showing them the Tau Star System, which is now approaching Earth. She also summons the defeated Outer Senshi, who have been bound to panels and tortured. Professor Tomoe leaves to check on the Tau System.

The Outer Senshi hurriedly tell the others to leave them and defeat Mistress 9, who attacks them in response. Sailor Moon begs her to stop, so Mistress 9 demands her Ginzuishou in return. The Outer Senshi beg Sailor Moon not to do it. When Sailor Moon hesitates, Mistress 9 tortures Neptune further. Sailor Moon refuses to let anyone attack, insisting that Hotaru is still alive, despite everyone else’s pleas to the contrary. Sailor Moon decides to give Mistress 9 the Ginzuishou, but before she does, she tries to speak directly to Hotaru (“A Chain of Thought”). She entrusts the Ginzuishou to Hotaru and asks her to use it to save everyone, reiterating her belief that she is still alive and has a good heart. Sailor Moon collapses, leaving Mistress 9 seemingly victorious as she ingests the Ginzuishou and the Tau System approaches even faster than before. Mercury continues what Sailor Moon started by appealing to Hotaru and begging her to protect both crystals. The rest of the Inner Senshi join her.

Mistress 9 resists at first, but she collapses and a strange light emerges from her body, revealing Hotaru’s soul and the crystals. One returns to Sailor Moon, who immediately awakens. Hotaru’s soul thanks her for believing in her and promises to return Chibi-Usa’s crystal. Neptune is visibly moved by Sailor Moon’s actions. Professor Tomoe runs in, alarmed, and carries Mistress 9’s body away, begging Pharaoh 90 to help her. The Tau Star System is now close enough for Pharaoh 90 to swallow up the Earth and his appears in the sky.

The Sailor Senshi decide to join forces, and Sailor Moon’s brooch begins to shine. The Holy Grail appears. The Senshi offer their power to Sailor Moon through the Grail, which allows her to transform into Super Sailor Moon. United at last, the Sailor Senshi are ready to fight (“Music of the Spheres”). Sailor Chibi-Moon and Tuxedo Mask join the battle as Professor Tomoe sends Daimons after them. Super Sailor Moon engages Kaolinite one-on-one and destroys her.

As Pharaoh 90 continues his approach, Professor Tomoe gloats and asks him to bring Hotaru back one more time. Tuxedo Mask tries to reason with him, but it’s no use. Pharaoh 90 kills the professor for outliving his usefulness and prepares to devour the planet. The Senshi use the Sailor Planet Attack to no avail. Moon tries to rally everyone for another attack, but no one is in any shape to stand, much less fight. Pharaoh 90 is set on using this world to save his, and Moon steadfastly refuses to let that happen. She decides to set off alone to release the Ginzuishou’s power inside of Pharaoh 90.

Right after Moon disappears, the Talismans begin to shine, and a light shines where Hotaru’s body once lay. In her place stands the harbinger of death, the soldier of silence: Sailor Saturn. Senshi are worried that this is a sign that Sailor Moon has died. Chibi-Moon calls out to Hotaru. Saturn clarifies that she is not Hotaru - Hotaru was supposed to die in the accident four years ago, but because she lived on by artificial means and Professor Tomoe summoned invaders to the planet, Saturn’s soul awakened. She prepares to lower the Silence Glaive, which will end the world.

The Senshi wonder if it was all for nothing. They see a light - it is Sailor Moon fighting Pharaoh 90. She is absolutely set on protecting her friends and the planet (“Piano Symphony: Light of Destruction, Movement 3: Ruin and Rebirth”). Invigorated by her determination, the Senshi vow to support Sailor Moon. She continues to struggle against Pharaoh 90. The Senshi offer her their support - she is their ray of light, and they are hers. With her friends’ support, Sailor Moon releases the Ginzuishou’s power, stopping the Tau System’s approach and freezing Pharaoh 90 in place. Weakened from the effort, she stumbles into Tuxedo Mask and Chibi-Moon’s arms.

Sailor Saturn appears and introduces herself to Sailor Moon. Dismayed at first, Moon asks her if there is really no future for the planet. Saturn uses her power to move the Tau System away from Earth and weaken Pharaoh 90. Sailor Moon’s actions gave Saturn a chance to save the world. She intends to bring her Glaive down upon the Tau Star System. Sailor Moon asks if this means that Saturn will go along with it. Saturn reassures her by telling her that where there is an end, there is the hope of rebirth because Sailor Moon will bring it about. She orders Pluto to close the portal once she goes through. Pluto uses Dark Dome Close to seal away the Tau Star System as Saturn lowers her glaive.

At long last, the battle has ended. The Senshi hear a baby’s cry, and Sailor Moon discovers a baby who looks exactly like Hotaru. It appears that Hotaru has been reborn. Neptune proposes that the Outer Senshi raise the baby, and they set off together on their new mission. They promise that they will see each other again. Moon says that in the meantime, they must shine brighter and take a step forward together (“Un Nouveau Voyage”).

    Amour Eternal (Eternal Love

Act 1

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/smae_pamphlet_thumb.jpg
Usagi talks about her dream for the future: to defend the planet together with everyone in Crystal Tokyo. She hopes that nothing will interfere with it. The Inner Senshi muse about the future (“Speed of Light”).

A pegasus appears to Chibi-Usa, apparently in pain. He is searching for a maiden with a beautiful dream and enters Chibi-Usa’s dream. Mamoru and the Inner Senshi catch up to her. The Inner Senshi are now all high school students. They have all gathered to watch a solar eclipse. The characters wish on the lunar eclipse for different things - Chibi-Usa wants to grow up and find a prince, Ami wants to become a doctor, Makoto wants to be a wife and open a bakery or flower shop, and Minako wants to be an idol. Mamoru feels strange once the eclipse begins.

They all hear a strange sound and something emerges from the eclipse - a circus. The Dead Moon Circus suddenly appears and sets about entertaining the group (“Viva Viva Dead Moon Circus”). The troupe is led by Tiger’s Eye, Hawk’s Eye, and Fish Eye. They announce that will be holding auditions during the coming weekend and encourage the girls to try out. Fish Eye seems particularly taken with Mamoru, to Usagi’s chagrin. Zirconia, a strange, bug-like old woman directs the circus to find Pegasus for their queen, Nehellenia. Everyone goes their separate ways to prepare for the auditions. Tiger’s Eye doubts that they will find who is hiding Pegasus, but Hawk’s Eye and Fish Eye are more optimistic. The Senshi all have beautiful dreams, so they intentionally invited them to audition. After some squabbling, they try to force each other to say what their dreams are, only to realize that they don’t have any.

Chibi-Usa and Pegasus go flying together. Chibi-Usa notices that the Dead Moon Circus tent looks pitch black from up above. Pegasus doesn’t seem to want her to go there. She tries to give him carrots as a gift. He begins coughing up black blood, so he goes back into her dreams for safety. She can hear his voice within her dream, and he reassures her that he will be able to heal in her dreams. He tells her to call him with the bell if she needs help and that he wants to save Elysion. Chibi-Usa wonders if she is really the maiden that he is looking for.It doesn’t last long because she has to hurry and get into bed before Usagi and Mamoru realize that she’s up past her bedtime. It doesn’t work, and she and Usagi briefly argue. Mamoru tells them a bedtime story about a dark world on the other side of mirrors. Usagi complains that she won’t be able to sleep because it was a scary story, but Chibi-Usa takes it in stride. She wants to be a grown-up soon, and Mamoru reassures her that she will be in time. He feels a sudden pain in his chest, but brushes it off as a cold. Trapped within a mirror, Queen Nehellenia resents the notion of light always winning of the end and is determined to plunge the world into darkness (“Yami no Shin’en - The Abyss of Darkness”).

The girls each demonstrate their skills, including hoop tricks, ball balancing, and dancing with ribbons, at the circus auditions. Everyone passes except Usagi, who has some difficulty focusing because she’s worried about Mamoru. Usagi is made an understudy at the other girls’ insistence that she be included somehow, and gets stuck with cleaning duty. Fish Eye tries to impress Mamoru with a performance of his own that culminates in him asking Mamoru out while Usagi looks on (“Flower Garden of the Mind”). Mamoru gently but firmly refuses him because there’s already someone that he loves. Fish Eye even offers to “save [him] when the time comes”. Usagi finally intervenes when Fish Eye gets too familiar, and Chibi-Usa joins them, which only serves to confuse Fish Eye. Usagi tries to reassure Fish Eye that he’ll find someone else because he has beautiful dreams. He runs away.

Chibi-Usa warns Usagi that this place is suspicious. Mamoru came because of Chibi-Usa’s suspicion. Usagi remembers that everyone is off signing their contracts. They hear a scream and run off to see what happened.Rei is being attacked by Tiger’s Eye, who looks into her dream mirror. The other three girls arrive, but initially mistake her and Tiger’s Eye for making out. Hawk’s Eye looks into their dream mirrors as well. Because Rei’s dream is to make the others’ dreams come true, they assume that she is the leader. Minako tries to correct them, leading to everyone offering the Trio a second look at their mirrors so they’ll let Rei go.

An embittered Fish Eye returns and tells them to stop dawdling and finish the girls off. Sailor Moon and Chibi-Moon arrive to help them and give the others a chance to run away and transform. The Trio sends the Lemures to attack ("Shiratsuki Gonin Onna (Five Women of the White Moon)"). Chibi-Moon gets captured during the scuffle, so Tuxedo Mask joins the battle ("When Destiny Calls"). Just as he is about to attack, he collapses, clutching his chest. Chibi-Moon calls for Pegasus' help, and he leads the Dead Moon Circus away. Jupiter helps Moon and Chibi-Usa take Tuxedo Mask home. Venus isn’t sure whether to consider Pegasus an ally or enemy. At the very least, Mercury is sure that he isn’t with the Dead Moon Circus. Mars and Mercury wish that the Outer Senshi were there to lend their support. Venus takes it as a personal slight against her as a leader, leading to a short argument between her and Mars before she runs off.

Nehellenia asks Zirconia why the people of the Moon Kingdom are living on Earth when her curse should have destroyed them. Zirconia informs her that it was because of Queen Serenity’s power. Nehellenia is incensed, so Zirconia tries to soothe her by telling her that she is the only one fit to rule the world. Zirconia plans to steal the Ginzuishou, a plan which Nehellenia immediately approves of since she will be able to use it to become the true queen of the moon. Zircon allows her to see Mamoru, Usagi, and Chibi-Usa as Mamoru suffers from coughing fits.

Mamoru has been coughing up black blood. He recalls that he started feeling pains on the day of the eclipse. Chibi-Usa recognizes the black blood as the same kind that Pegasus had. She begs Pegasus to tell her if there is a connection between his black blood and Mamoru’s. She calls him, and he appears in his true form. He introduces himself as Helios, a priest of the holy land of Elysion, which protects the Earth. Endymion’s life is tied to Elysion, which has become a world of nightmares under Nehellenia’s curse. Nehellenia was able to invade with the Dead Moon Circus because her curse weakened Elysion’s protection. Nehellenia strengthens her curse on Elysion, causing a black rose to appear on Mamoru’s chest. Mamoru begs everyone to stay away from him so they won’t be afflicted with the curse. Nehellenia orders the Lemures to capture Helios.

Usagi frets about what they should do. Helios tells her that she needs to use the power of the Ginzuishou and the Golden Crystal. He doesn’t know where it was sealed away, but he does know that only the Ginzuishou can release its power. Makoto tells Usagi to stay by Mamoru’s side and leave defeating Nehellenia to the rest of the Senshi. She leaves to inform the others. Mamoru feels useless, but Usagi swears to do her best to cheer him up. Chibi-Usa feels similarly useless for not being the “maiden” that Helios was looking for, but Helios reassures her that she has helped him and admits feelings for her (“Double Encouragement”). Mamoru begins to cough again as the Lemures capture Helios and deliver him to Nehellenia. He remains defiant, but rather than than kill him, she decides to show him his “true form”.

Haruka and Michiru return from a month-long trip abroad. Setsuna explains that while they were away, Hotaru began growing up rapidly. All three of them felt something after the eclipse; Setsuna has seen a disturbance in space-time. However, none of them have been able to transform. Haruka wonders if it means that they aren’t needed anymore. Hotaru enters, now a young woman again, and tells the others that it is time to awaken (“Mezame no Toki (Time of Awakening)“). She thanks her Haruka-papa, Michiru-mama, and Setsuna-mama for raising her and shows them their crystals - their new source of power. The Outer Senshi set off on their new mission.

Determined to prove herself as a leader, Venus sneaks into the Dead Moon Circus tent at night. She sees Pegasus, but it turns out to be a trap set by the Lemures. She starts to fight them off, but gets cornered (“Inner Venus”). The other Inner Senshi catch up to her and help her fight them off. Zirconia appears and traps each of them in nightmares based on their deepest fears and desires. Mercury’s reflection reveals about her loneliness and desire to be loved. The Senshi are immobilized, and Zirconia sends the Amazon Trio to finish them off.

The Outer Senshi transform and reunite with the Inner Senshi to fight off the Black Moon Circus (“Shuuketsu - Yume wo Atsumaru Basho (Assemble - The Place Where Dreams Gather)”). Usagi and Mamoru reaffirm their promise to each other to protect the world together. Usagi deduces that the Golden Crystal is sealed inside of Mamoru and feels everyone gathering for their sake. The Dead Moon and Sailor Senshi fight to a stalemate, but the Dead Moon flee when Moon and Chibi-Moon arrive. Chibi-Moon is overjoyed to see Saturn again. The Sailor Senshi swear to protect the world, the place where their dreams lie, come what may. Helios appears once more, but he moves strangely before falling and fading away. Chibi-Moon feels that something is wrong and cries out to him.

Act 2

The Amazon Trio chat with the audience about beautiful dreams. Fish Eye tries to look at Tiger's Eye's mirror, but is shocked to realize that he lacks one. Zirconia joins them. Fish Eye asks her why they don't have any dreams, and Zirconia tells him that it's because they are mere animals given human form with her magic. She tells them that if she obtains the Ginzuishou, she will be able to give them everlasting human forms.

It's showtime at the Dead Moon Circus, featuring a variety of acts. The Sailor Senshi interrupt the show with one of their own, fighting the Dead Moon Circus all the while ("Koisuru Satellite (Loving Satellite)"). Neptune uses the Deep Aqua Mirror to expose the tear in space-time above the tent that is allowing the nightmares to come through. Uranus proposes going straight to the source. Moon feels that it will be alright if they go together, so they use the Sailor Teleport to enter the nightmare.

A lone dark figure stands in the center of the nightmare. The Senshi use the Sailor Planet Attack, but it’s ineffective. Chibi-Moon recognizes it as Helios, and he seems to be in pain. She tries to call out to him and begs the Outer Senshi not to hurt him, but they attack. Zirconia arrives with the Amazon Trio and confirms that he is, in fact, Helios. She sends him to attack the Senshi. Tuxedo Mask arrives to stop Helios, but he won’t respond. Tuxedo Mask demands to know what Zirconia did to him. Queen Nehellenia reveals herself and taunts Tuxedo Mask with the curse. She reveals that Helios has turned humans’ nightmares into dreams for millennia; it was his destiny to one day turn into a monster from all of those nightmares.

Tuxedo Mask continues to fight and apologizes for the pain that Helios has gone through (“Helios e no Omoi (Thoughts for Helios)”). He tells Helios to give all of the nightmares to him so that they can protect the peace together. This returns Helios to normal, but at the cost of Tuxedo Mask’s life. A light begins to shine in his chest, revealing the Golden Crystal. Sailor Moon tries to touch it, but is blasted by Queen Nehellenia, who takes it for herself and vanishes. Chibi-Moon disappears because Tuxedo Mask’s death undoes her existence, leaving Sailor Moon distraught.

Zirconia orders the Trio to take Sailor Moon’s Ginzuishou, and the Senshi immediately move to defend her. Fish Eye has doubts as to whether the Ginzuishou will really help them be human if they will never have beautiful dreams. Zirconia kills him for his insolence. Sailor Moon refuses to give her Ginzuishou to someone without a heart and swears to get Mamoru’s crystal back. Zirconia orders Tiger’s Eye and Hawk’s Eye to attack, and the battle begins (“Music of the Spheres”). During the battle, Sailor Moon receives the Kaleido Moon Scope. Tiger’s Eye and Hawk’s Eye turn traitor and hold Zirconia in place so that Sailor Moon can kill Zirconia, which she does with her new power. Tiger’s Eye and Hawk’s Eye die. Sailor Moon promises that their sacrifice won’t be in vain and sets her sights on Nehellenia.

Nehellenia beckons Sailor Moon through a mirror into the world of darkness that she inhabits. She shows Sailor Moon a vision of the day that Princess Serenity was born. The Inner Senshi and various well-wishers bring gifts. Nehellenia, the ruler of the dark side of the moon and a clan that fell from an asteroid, arrives uninvited. The inhabitants of the white moon reject her because she insists on spreading darkness rather than seeking peace (“Nehellenia no Noroi (Nehellenia’s Curse)”). She attacks Queen Serenity, who seals Nehellenia in a mirror in response, but not before Nehellenia delivers a curse that will cause the kingdom to fall and the young princess to die.

Moon realizes that the events of her past life were set in motion by Nehellenia’s curse. Nehellenia believes that she is returning the world to its natural state in darkness. Naturally, Sailor Moon disagrees. Nehellenia shows her the fallen Sailor Senshi, which causes Sailor Moon to waver. The Senshi insist that they are still alive, but Sailor Moon is trapped in a nightmare. Nehellenia takes the Ginzuishou, leaving the Senshi in despair. Saturn is the first to stand and declare that they have a chance as long as they don’t give up. The Senshi prepare to give their lives for Sailor Moon (“Changing Fate”). Their combined powers fail to wake her up. Nehellenia gloats that she has at last ended the line of the White Moon. She tries to release the power of both crystals, but fails. Moon reawakens, barely holding on, but she slowly manages to stand as Nehellenia struggles to use both crystals. Moon explains that Nehellenia can’t use power that she didn’t create. Sailor Moon uses the power of the Ginzuishou to release the power of the Golden Crystal, which revives Tuxedo Mask and the rest of the Sailor Senshi.

Nehellenia prepares to end the Senshi once and for all. Sailor Moon asks for everyone to give her their power one more time and transforms into her true form, the form closest to the Queen’s power: Eternal Sailor Moon (“Amour Eternal - Speed of Light”). Sailor Moon combines everyone’s power with her Eternal Tiare and uses it to free Nehellenia from her imprisonment. Sailor Moon shows Nehellenia the light that existed within her all along, which destroys her. Helios reunites with Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask. Before he leaves, Chibi-Moon asks him if they will meet again, and he promises her that he will see her again. Tuxedo Mask feels a warmth in his chest and wonders if it’s the Golden Crystal’s power. Sailor Moon recalls something that Queen Serenity told her in her past life: everyone has a star inside them. Moon hopes that hers will continue to shine (“Ai no Starshine (Starshine of Love)”).

    Le Mouvement Final (The Final Movement

Act 1

Usagi and Mamoru arrive at the airport. Mamoru is about to leave to study in America, and Usagi has come to see him off. The two are briefly interrupted by the idol group Three Lights, who are being pursued by their fans. Once they’re alone again, Mamoru presents Usagi with a ring. Suddenly, Mamoru disintegrates, leaving Usagi in a state of shock. A Sailor Senshi in golden armor laughs, proclaiming that she has obtained the Star Seed of Earth. One of the members of Three Lights, Seiya, tries to help Usagi, but the other two tell him to leave her - there’s nothing that they can do.

Usagi Band performs at the school festival (“Maiden’s Road”). Usagi arrives too late to be a part of it. When asked about how things went at the airport, she doesn’t appear to remember that Mamoru died. Their performance is followed by the Three Lights’ (Wandering Stars). A Sailor Senshi called Sailor Iron Mouse senses Sailor Crystals and decides to attack by cutting the power to the venue. The Sailor Senshi quickly transform and drive her off (“Sky of Jewels”).
