At Crown Karaoke, Motoki taps at the glass of Kamekichi's cage.
Usagi and Ami walk in, and Usagi quickly flashes her passport.
Ami hesitates, showing her passport but asking if it is okay.
Usagi tells her it's all right, and leads her back to the
In the secret, room, Luna hosts the first ever Sailor Senshi
Quiz! Ami and Usagi sit with buzzers and Luna acts as the
host, asking questions. Her first question is how many
companion senshi are left. Ami buzzes in quickly and first,
although Usagi is bashing her buzzer. Ami answers 'two'
correctly, and Usagi laments that she knew that one. The second
question Luna asks is what the mission is. Usagi buzzes in much
quicker this time, and is elated to find she is first. She
answers 'to fight the youma that are stealing human energy' and
Luna tells her the answer wasn't complete enough. Ami steals
the point by adding in finding the maboroshi no ginzuishou and
the princess. Usagi asks Luna what exactly the maboroshi no
ginzuishou is, and Luna chides her for not paying attention.
Luna explains that the ginzuishou is a powerful gem that could
destroy the Earth if it was in the wrong hands. Luna says she
is worried about 'this' right now and turns a monitor on
showing a clip of Sailor V. Usagi wonders if she could possibly
be their companion senshi, and Luna ponders that. Ami asks if
she could possibly be the princess. Luna says she doesn't know,
that she'll have to investigate it further. Then she gives Ami
her Teletia S.
At Hikawa Jinga, a young miko meditates in front of a fire.
Meanwhile, on the path way outside the shrine a young girl
walks from school. A patch of the sky seems to distort, and the
girl stares up at it as a hole is ripped in the sky and a pair
of unnaturally long arms reach out of it, grabbing her and
pulling her through the hole screaming. The hole closes up
behind the girl, leaving only swirling leaves on the path. Two
crows circle. Inside the shrine, the fire distorts and the miko
grips her hands.
At Juuban middle school, Usagi and her friends discuss the
girls who have been going missing lately. The girls tell Usagi
that its rumored the miko puts curses on people. Usagi is
obviously uncomfortable with hearing this spooky story, and
covers her ears, so the girls decide to tease her and continue
on with the story. They talk about the miko's creepy spiritual
sense, the ceremony room inside of the temple that is for
making curses, and that if you hear the sound of a raven, the
miko is right behind you. The girls all cry out after this last
proclamation, scaring Usagi even more. Naru assures Usagi that
it's just a rumor, and Usagi wonders if that's true but is
quickly distracted when she sees Ami going off to eat her lunch
alone. She calls out to her to have lunch with the group, and
Ami declines politely, saying she has to review when she sees
the confused looks that Usagi's friends are giving each other.
Naru asks Usagi why she is suddenly so interested with Ami, and
her other friend pipes up that she seems suddenly very familiar
to her. Usagi doesn't really answer the question and looks away
After school, Naru and Usagi exchange goodbyes and begin to
each walk their separate ways. Usagi sees Ami on the bridge
they both cross to walk home, and calls out to her. Usagi asks
her why she didn't have lunch with her today and Ami explains
that it would be suspicious if they suddenly started to hang
out together without explanation. Ami then tells Usagi that she
is concerned that the missing girls might be the work of a
youma. Usagi gets excited, thinking that she and Ami might be
able to take care of it without Luna's help and begins to talk
rapidly while walking backwards in front of Ami. As she is
chattering, she bumps into a girl in a different school
uniform, hard, and Usagi apologizes. The girl gives her a cold
look but keeps walking. Usagi mentions that she thinks the girl
is a little strange, then notices a bracelet on the ground. The
bracelet says "REI" on it and Usagi wonders if the girl might
have dropped it just now. Usagi tells Ami to go on ahead
without her and that she'll be right there and begins to run
after the Rei. Rei walks through the arch of Hikawa Jinga.
Meanwhile, in the Dark Kingdom a youma dances while pulling out
the energy of several girls. In the throne room, Jadeite tells
Queen Beryl that soon the seven holy girls will have maximum
energy. Queen Beryl warns Jadeite against failure.
Usagi makes her way down the path, wondering which way that
girl went. Passing through the temple archway, Usagi remembers
the creepy rumors that her friends told her about the temple
and the miko. Rei meditates in front of the fire as Usagi
approaches. Usagi is startled by the sound of two ravens
perched on the rooftop. Remembering her friends' words, she
turns around but instead is greeted by Rei asking who is there.
Panicking, Usagi screams and runs away, leaving a confused Rei
behind her and bumping into another girl on the way out.
That evening at the Tsukino residence, Ami tells Usagi she was
being silly and there is no curse of the miko. Usagi tells her
that she panicked, but tomorrow she will try to return it
again. Ami tells Usagi that she has been collecting information
about the missing girls and hopes to gain some insight onto
what has been happening. Ami punctuates this statement by
sitting up straight and lady-like, and Usagi grins and tells
her she doesn't need to be so proper. Ikuko knocks on the door
and brings in a tray with a couple mugs, telling the girls it's
the deluxe cafe'. Usagi teases her mother by saying it tastes
plain, and Ikuko and Usagi fake wrestle, leaving Ami to feel
uncomfortable and out of place.
Outside in the dark cityscape, Luna chases after Sailor V, but
can't make the jump that V does and loses the ground she
gained. As she climbs up the wall, she calls out for Sailor V
to wait, but Sailor V just keeps leaping from building to
building. Luna wonders about the crescent moon on V's forehead,
and if it means she is the princess.
The next day, Usagi decides to go back to Hikawa Jinga to
return the bracelet. As she approaches the temple, she notices
a large group of girls in the same TA School uniform as Rei
bullying the girl. Rei wants them to give her birdhouse and a
plant back, but the girls tell her they won't return them
unless she promises to stop cursing girls. Rei tries to explain
that she wasn't cursing anyone, and the girls tell her she is
suspicious. Desperate, Rei lunges for the pilfered items and
the girls continue to accuse her of making the girls disappear.
The lead girl tells her that just yesterday they saw a girl run
screaming from the temple. Usagi realizes they are describing
her, and steps forward even as they accuse Rei of making that
girl disappear, too. Usagi tells the girls that she was the one
running away, and that she was just scared from the ravens. She
asks the girls to give back the items, and they do and leave.
Rei begins to walk away and Usagi follows, asking her to wait a
sec. Rei continues walking, so Usagi calls out "Rei-chan!" and
Rei turns, surprised. Usagi explains that she knew her name
from the bracelet she found, and returns the item, apologizing
for being the cause of the bullying. Rei tells her that it
happens all the time and to not worry about it.
The girls go their separate ways. Rei meditates in front of the
fire again, and Usagi leaves the temple. As she is stepping
outside the gates, Usagi's TeletiaS begins to ring and she
answers it, finding Ami on the other end. Ami tells Usagi to
hurry to the Manjukaku Wedding building and that she knows
where the next girl will be targeted.
At the Manjukaku Wedding building, Usagi meets Ami and asks her
where the next girl will be targeted. Ami motions towards the
window and points out a couple of miko in the lobby. She tells
Usagi that all the missing girls were priestesses in the
festival this year. Ami tells her that the girl who is inside
the building is the last of the seven girls who would be in the
festival, and that if they keep an eye on her they should see
what is happening. The two girls get out their TeletiaS and
snap photos of the miko inside.
As Usagi and Ami make their way through the building as miko,
Ami asks Usagi how it turned out with the priestess. Usagi
tells Ami that it was only a rumor that Rei was cursing the
girls, and that she only seemed suspicious because her
spiritual sense was real. As they are chatting, Usagi stops in
her tracks as she notices Rei walk through the building. She
wonders why Rei is around, and as Rei walks outside, a girl's
scream is heard. Ami and Usagi race after Rei.
Outside, Rei is standing over the final miko from the festival
who is collapsed. Usagi calls out to Rei and asks what she is
doing. Rei whips her head around and stares at Usagi and Ami,
who begin to question her motives. Rei quickly performs
"Akuryou taisan!" and the girls think she is attacking them.
They duck, only to see a unnatural swirling pile of leaves
disperse and fall to the ground. Rei says that she has finally
found the one behind the missing girls. Usagi realizes that Rei
was simply investigating the missing girls case. Ami suddenly
calls out "watch out!" and the leaves begin to swirl and create
a new vortex in the sky. Again, the arms reach out, this time
grabbing Rei. Usagi grabs Rei's legs and they are both pulled
inside. The vortex closes, leaving Ami behind. Ami quickly
calls Luna for help.
Usagi and Rei are deposited in a forest. A youma approaches and
Usagi tells Rei to hide. Usagi then transforms into Sailormoon.
Rei watches and wonders what is going on. Sailormoon begins to
fight the youma. The youma makes some hand gestures and vines
wrap around Sailormoon's arms, legs, and waist, then hang her
up in the air from the trees. The youma turns to face Rei next,
and Sailormoon tells her to run. As she turns to flee, Rei's
bracelet begins to sparkle and transforms into the silver
Back in Tokyo, Luna approaches Ami and tells her to transform
and then rip open a hole to the subspace Usagi and Rei were
taken. Ami agrees and transforms into Sailor Mercury. Using
"Mercury Aqua Mist!", she attacks the area where the rip
In the subspace forest, Sailormoon realizes that the bracelet
means Rei is a sailor senshi as well. She yells to Rei to
transform. Rei seems confused, and the youma attacks Rei and
covers her with leaves. Sailormoon manages to free herself from
the vines and drops to the ground. Suddenly, the pile of leaves
Rei was under explodes in a dazzling red light. Rei jumps up
and transforms with "Mars Power, Make Up!" Usagi is
impressed by Rei, who begins to attack the youma gracefully
avoiding it. She uses "Youma Taisan!" and defeats it
The girls begin to awaken, and the rip in subspace reopens and
Sailormoon, Sailor Mercury, and Sailor Mars quickly help the
girls escape the subspace. Just as Sailormoon is about to leave
through the tear herself, vines once again wrap around her legs
and drag her away. Before she can get too far, a cane suddenly
appears, snapping the vine in half. Tuxedo Kamen rushes over
and frees Sailormoon, and the two run through the tear while it
is still available.
Sailor Mercury is happy that Sailormoon is safe. Watching as
Tuxedo Kamen leaves, Mercury asks Sailormoon if he is also a
companion. Sailormoon admits that she doesn't know, but that he
has saved her before. Luna approaches Sailor Mars and tells her
she is the third senshi. Mars says she finally understands why she
has her powers, and that they are not an ill omen after all.
In the Dark Kingdom, an enraged Queen Beryl yells out to an
apologetic Jadeite, and she curses at the Sailor Senshi.
Usagi, Ami, and Rei are walking along together. Usagi tells Ami
and Rei that they should have a party together now that they
were all friends and companions. Usagi quickly grabs Rei's arm
and suggests a Karaoke party. Rei tells her that she hates
karaoke and she has no plans to be their companion. She then
walks away, leaving Usagi flabbergasted.
