In the Death Busters' lab, the Professor asks Kaolinite if she has found a new
target. Kaolinite says yes, and this time she's certain it has a Talisman.
The Professor says, "Oh?" and Kaolinite says that this heart crystal is the
purest ever, so it definitely has the Talisman. The Professor says he'll
give her his strongest daimon and creates a daimon egg. He tells Kaolinite
he's counting on her, and she thanks him.
Usagi's super-excited, telling the other senshi that today is June 30th, her
birthday. The others are reading books and look up disinterestedly. Rei
says, "Oh, happy birthday," and Makoto says, "Good for you." Minako says,
"Oh, it's your birthday?" and Ami tells her she should act more mature now.
Usagi sweatdrops, saying they're cold. She falls backwards. The others
close their books and stand up in unison. They leave the park, and Usagi
tells them to wait, is that all they're going to say? Rei tells her that
even if it's her birthday, she should be at their four o'clock study session.
Usagi falls to her knees and starts crying.
Usagi walks past a display window with a pair of glass shoes on display. Usagi
thinks they're beautiful and wonders if someone could buy her a pair. She
remembers that the prince gives Cinderella the glass slippers (??) and says
she'll get her prince to buy them for her. Kaolinite watches her.
Haruka and Michiru are sitting in a cafe and see Usagi running past outside.
Usagi sees Mamoru near a telephone booth. She snuggles him while he asks why
she's so eager to see him. Usagi thinks he's playing dumb. She tells him
that she wants glass slippers, saying they're on sale and where to buy them.
Kaolinite is in a telephone booth across the street and says Usagi wants
glass slippers? She disappears. Meanwhile, Usagi is tugging on Mamoru's arm,
but he tells her Christmas is a long time off. Usagi gets upset, asking if
he doesn't know what today is? Mamoru sweatdrops and says he couldn't forget
such an important day. Usagi is happy, but then Mamoru says today is the day
they first met, right? Usagi slaps him across the face and runs off crying.
Mamoru stands, stunned, while everyone in the street crowds around behind him.
Usagi is in the park, sitting on a bench and crying. Haruka puts her hand on
her shoulder and asks her what's wrong. Michiru says that tears don't suit Usagi
and gives her a handkerchief. Usagi thanks her and blows her nose into it.
Haruka and Michiru are surprised, then laugh. Usagi tells them what happened,
and Michiru says, "Forgetting a girlfriend's birthday? That's terrible of
Mamoru-san." Usagi says that Mamoru's not her boyfriend anymore, and Haruka
says, "Does that mean I have a chance?" Michiru gets an annoyed look and says,
"Not again, Haruka." Usagi is looking uncomfortable and blushing while Haruka
says she's not joking, she finds Usagi attractive. Usagi suddenly remembers
she has to be at Rei's; she stands up and says bye, then runs off. Haruka
laughs, saying Usagi's very cute. Michiru says, "But what if she has a
Talisman?" Haruka looks stunned, saying, "That's impossible...!"
At the Hikawa Jinja, Rei gets a phone call. It's Mamoru. He tells Rei he
made Usagi angry and doesn't know why; Rei tells him he's still the same,
he doesn't understand a girl's pure heart. She tells him today is Usagi's
birthday, and Mamoru says that's why she got so upset.
Usagi is climbing the steps to the Hikawa Jinja. She looks at her hand and
wonders if she did a terrible thing to Mamoru by slapping him. She slides
open the door to Rei's room apologizing for being late, then is surprised
as the girls shout, "Happy birthday!" She looks around, stunned, as Minako
tells the birthday girl to sit down at the table, which has a lot of food
on it that Mako says she baked with her heart. Ami gives Usagi a present,
saying it's an exam book with questions often used on real exams. Usagi
thanks them. Rei asks Usagi why she isn't more excited after they organized
a surprise party for her. Usagi smiles and says, "Hai!" As Rei serves
Coke to Ami, Usagi looks at the present and thinks she actually wanted a
gift from Mamo-chan.
It's night, and Mamoru is running towards the store Usagi told him about.
Kaolinite is inside the store with a uniform on, the body of the real sales
clerk lying on the ground. She watches as the daimon egg enters the slippers.
Mamoru runs in and asks if he can buy the glass slippers. He runs out with
them. Michiru and Haruka watch him from behind a telephone booth. Kaolinite
appears outside of the store, then vanishes. Michiru says that was Kaolinite.
Haruka wonders if Mamoru is the next target.
Back at the shrine, Usagi blows out the candles on her cake while the other
girls clap. Usagi sighs, and Ami asks what's wrong. Usagi tells them she
slapped Mamoru; the girls are shocked. Usagi says it was a mistake but she
wasn't thinking when she did it. Rei says that maybe Mamoru didn't forget
her birthday, he just didn't know. Makoto asks her if she told him her
birthday. She says she didn't, and the others fall down. Usagi says but he
should've felt it if they were truly in love. Minako asks her if she knows
Mamoru's birthday then. She says of course, then goes through several dates
as the others watch her. She then admits she doesn't know, and her friends
fall over again. Usagi stands up and says she's going to apologize to Mamoru;
she races off.
Mamoru is running down the street, and he and Usagi meet. They hug, and Usagi
apologizes. Mamoru says, "I've been looking for you, my princess" and takes
out the glass slippers. He asks her to try them on, but when she does, it
glows and turns into an armored daimon, Senishienta.
Senishienta tells Usagi it'll take her pure heart that's thinking of Mamoru.
Mamoru runs towards the daimon but it throws him into the fence. It grabs
Usagi's shoulders, pushing her against the display window of a building.
Usagi starts kicking its face but can't get free. She thinks there's no choice;
she takes off her brooch and starts to say, "Moon Cosmic Power-" but the daimon
slaps the brooch away onto the street, saying how Usagi is dangerous for trying
to throw it at it. The daimon then pushes Usagi into the display window so
she can't move.
In the alleyway, Uranus and Neptune appear. They see that Usagi is the target.
The daimon starts to take Usagi's heart crystal. Neptune asks Uranus if she's
not going to save Usagi? Uranus says it might be the Talisman. Neptune says
she can tell that Uranus is torn, and Uranus tells her not to joke. Suddenly
Usagi's heart crystal comes out; it's unusually bright and Uranus and Neptune
watch it. The daimon says it must be the Talisman because of its shine.
Uranus says she's never seen a Talisman shine like that; Neptune asks what she's
going to do, and Uranus says if it's a Talisman, they must go and starts to
run out. Neptune grabs her wrist and pulls her back, saying that's not what she
meant. She says if it's the Talisman, Uranus isn't going to give it back.
Uranus looks upset and says she won't. Neptune says that means Usagi will
die. They both watch Usagi.
The heart crystal starts to float to Senishienta and almost reaches her when
a rose flies by, hitting Senishienta's hand and embedding itself in the
window over Usagi's head. The heart crystal reenters Usagi's body, and the
window shatters. Uranus and Neptune say, "That's...!" Tuxedo Kamen appears,
saying he will protect the shine of the pure heart crystal. He throws
several roses which form a circle around Senishienta and release energy.
Tuxedo Kamen shakes Usagi awake, then lifts her up and jumps up with her
to the roof. He tells her to transform into Sailormoon, but Usagi says,
Below, Kaolinite appears. Senishienta says there was some interference and
the girl got away. Kaolinite sees the brooch and picks it up, realizing
it looks like Sailormoon's. She thinks Usagi might be Sailormoon. Usagi
says this is bad. Tuxedo Kamen says they should retreat; Usagi protests
but Tuxedo Kamen says they're after her. He looks upset, saying it's his
fault he got Usagi into this mess. Usagi says it's not his fault, and they
should just leave. They jump onto another roof and Senishienta sees them.
They enter the building through the roof top and run down the stairs with
Senishienta following. Usagi tells Tuxedo Kamen to leave her, it's her
fault they're after her, but Tuxedo Kamen tells her she's wrong.
They reach the parking garage, but Kaolinite is there. Usagi tries to call
Luna on her communicator watch, but Kaolinite uses her hair to break it.
Kaolinite tells her: "I won't let you call for help, Sailormoon." Usagi
Nearby, Uranus and Neptune watch. Neptune asks Uranus if she's sure she
wants to go through with this. Uranus says determinedly that their
mission is to get the Talismans, so she has to ignore some sacrifices.
Neptune watches her sadly.
At Rei's, the girls have eaten Usagi's cake. Minako wonders if it's okay,
and Makoto says it is since Usagi's probably reconciling with Mamoru now.
She and Rei say they envy Usagi. Ami isn't paying attention to them,
instead going through some equations. Her wristwatch goes off, and Luna
tells them something's happened to Usagi and to get going.
In the parking lot, Tuxedo Kamen and Usagi are backed into a corner between
the wall and a car. Tuxedo Kamen tells her to run off when there's a chance.
The daimon's hand turns into a sword, and Tuxedo Kamen pulls out his cane.
The two fight. Usagi doesn't want to run, but finally does. Kaolinite is
in front of her and says she won't let Usagi get away. She pulls out Usagi's
brooch (it was in her DRESS, blech), asking her if she wants this. Usagi says,
"That's-", but Kaolinite says if Usagi doesn't want it, then she can break it,
right? She drops it and puts her shoe over it. Usagi yells at her to stop.
Tuxedo Kamen breaks Senishienta's sword and runs towards Usagi, but Senishienta
opens her mouth and glass comes out, encasing Tuxedo Kamen in it. Usagi screams
"Mamo-chan!" and runs towards popsicle Tuxedo Kamen, crying while Kaolinite and
Senishienta laugh. Uranus is still torn over wanting to save Usagi and wanting
the Talismans. The episode ends with Usagi holding Tuxedo Kamen on ice.
