A blue-haired woman in black calls to the students of Mugen Gakuen; they all march
into the school. From a rooftop, Haruka senses that the wind is rustling.
Michiru says it's scared of the unknown future.
Chibi-usa sits in the bathtub and thinks of Hotaru. Usagi is showering and looks
at her worriedly. She walks towards Chibi-usa and starts to tell her not to
worry about Hotaru, but she slips on the wet rug and falls into the bathtub.
Chibi-usa glares at her, then pushes her under the water. They have a dunking
fight. Afterwards, Chibi-usa runs up the stairs saying she won. Usagi puts a
towel around her. At their doors, Chibi-usa tells Usagi not to worry about her.
She thanks Usagi and says goodnight. The door to Usagi's room opens, and Luna
and Artemis look at her. She nods.
Usagi runs towards Mugen Gakuen; Artemis's voice says that the students are
gathering in numbers there. Usagi thinks she didn't tell Chibi-usa about this,
but she'll save Hotaru.
Hotaru is breathing harshly. She whispers, "Chibi-usa..." Tomoe and the blue
haired woman watch. Tomoe says that Hotaru is suffering; the girl says Hotaru
needs heart crystals quickly. She says that she, Cyprine, the last and best
of the Witches 5, will do her best for Tomoe. Tomoe tells her she's the only
one he can rely on; he puts his hands on her shoulders. Cyprine says she's
much better than Kaolinite. Behind them, Kaolinite appears in the air. She's
angry that even Cyprine is sneering at her. Cyprine sees her and smirks.
Kaolinite disappears and reappears on the ground. She digs her hand into a
pillar. She thinks to get back at Cyprine, she'll get a pure heart crystal
from Hotaru's friend, Chibi-usa.
Chibi-usa is in a strange hazy fog. A cross appears in the distance. Hotaru is
tied to it, and many hands are reaching up towards her. Hotaru lifts her face
and tells Chibi-usa to help her; the hands grab her face and body, and she
screams as she's dragged away. Chibi-usa wake up from her nightmare and thinks,
The Mugen Gakuen students, including Haruka and Michiru, march in file towards
Cyprine's voice. They enter a huge room with multicolored glass windows. In
the front is a huge statue of a woman holding a scythe; a black star is on it.
Cyprine stands before it, and she tells the students to give their heart crystals
to the Death Busters. The students in front fall down as their heart crystals
speed towards the statue. From behind pillars, the Sailor Team gasps in horror.
Cyprine smiles and snaps her fingers; a red light appears from the ceiling and
encases the girls in a bubble. She says non-students are not permitted. The
bubble flies to the ceiling and disappears. Cyprine then leaves to deal with
them while the other students continue giving their heart crystals. Haruka and
The girls appear in the office of Cyprine. She greets the senshi and introduces
herself as the last of the Witches 5. Since Cyprine knows their identities
anyway, they transform, giving speeches at the end of their transformations.
Cyprine smiles and says that the Death Busters will win since the Silence is
Mars uses "Burning Mandala"; the attack destroys the windows. Mars wonders if
she got Cyprine, but from out of the smoke, two lights blast Mars- one red, one
blue. She looks up and dodges a red blast coming towards her but gets hit by
the blue one. Cyprine is floating in the air laughing; she holds a staff.
Venus uses her "Venus Love-Me Chain" and lassos it around Cyprine; Cyprine only
laughs, and then a red blast hits Venus. The senshi see another girl, the
mirror image of Cyprine, only with red hair, standing next to her. Cyprine
introduces herself again, and the red haired girl says she is Ptilol. "One
is two, and two is one."
Jupiter says it doesn't matter if it's one or two. She throws a "Sparkling
Wide Pressure" at them, but they call each other's names and put their staffs
together. The staff absorbs the attack, and then the two throw it back at
Jupiter. Cyprine and Ptilol blast the senshi, who dodge the attacks. The
two girls laugh.
Chibi-usa stands outside of the Tomoe house. She tells Hotaru to wait; she'll
come save her today. She transforms into SailorChibimoon. Kaolinite watches
from inside the mansion and is surprised that Chibi-usa is also a Sailor Senshi.
Chibimoon stands in front of the doors to the house; they suddenly open and
Chibimoon gets frightened. She then tells herself that she isn't scared and
runs inside. The doors close behind her. Chibimoon looks around the rooms and
sees Kaolinite by the window. Kaolinite says that Hotaru is waiting for her,
as well as her pure heart. She walks towards Chibimoon but Tuxedo Kamen throws
a rose between them. Kaolinite then blasts Chibimoon, who is knocked out the
window. Pluto uses "Dead Scream" but Kaolinite creates a smoke screen; she
then grabs Chibimoon and flies into the air. She disappears saying she has the
Mercury uses "Shine Aqua Illusion," but Cyprine and Ptilol reflect it back.
Jupiter says they're too strong; Mars add that they make a good combination.
Sailormoon says that have to try something different. Mercury says if they could
separate the twins... Cyprine and Ptilol laugh; now the real fight begins. The
senshi might die if they're hit by their true power. The senshi say they'll
never give up and will show them their team work.
Mercury uses "Shabon Spray" to create a mist around the two Witches. Venus uses
"Venus Love Me Chain" but Cyprine and Ptilol use their staffs against it. Moon's
"Moon Tiara Action" and Mars' "Fire Soul" are likewise absorbed. Cyprine and
Ptilol tell them their attacks are useless; they're only helping the Witches grow
stronger by letting them absorb their attacks. Then Jupiter leaps up and hits
Cyprine on the back. Cyprine gets angry and runs after her. Ptilol yells at her
not to chase Jupiter, but then Mars hits her. Ptilol chases after Mars. Jupiter
and Mars dodge the attacks by the Witches; the Witches laugh and charge up their
wands. Ptilol thinks she has Mars, and Cyprine thinks she has Jupiter. Then
Mars sees Ptilol's attack and dodges just as Cyprine launches her attack where
she thinks Jupiter is; they realize that they're attacking each other too late and
are killed. The glass statue of the Messiah of Silence is destroyed; it releases
the heart crystals.
The senshi think that they just barely pulled through. Suddenly, a portal appears
in front of them. Mercury says that the hallway is a spatial disturbance.
Jupiter says it must lead to the Death Busters' true hideout. They agree to
Meanwhile, Uranus and Neptune are already walking down the hall. They see Tomoe
at the end of it. Tomoe greets them; Uranus says he's finally shown himself.
He tells them they're lucky to witness this great event. A light shines and the
two senshi see that behind him on a platform is Chibimoon. Uranus runs towards
him, but she's blasted back by a force field. The other senshi arrive; they see
Tomoe and Chibimoon. Tomoe says, "Kaolinite." Kaolinite appears and tells them
that the Messiah of Silence will finally awaken by taking Chibi-usa's pure heart.
On the throne atop some stairs, Hotaru starts to glow. Sailormoon yells and runs
towards Chibimoon; Uranus shouts a warning but Sailormoon hits the field and
falls back. Hotaru glows even more. Tomoe says, "Our Messiah of Silence!"
Sailormoon screams, "Chibimoon!" and goes against the field again. Hotaru stands
up. and a strange purple hand comes from her body; it reaches into Chibimoon's
chest. Chibimoon starts screaming, but she sees Hotaru and says she's glad to
see her. She then faints as the heart crystal comes out. Sailormoon starts
Tomoe says the heart crystal is perfect for their Messiah. Uranus says that if
Saturn awakens, then the world is doomed. Sailormoon yells at Hotaru to stop.
She then pleads to Tomoe if he's really Hotaru's father, and if he really loves
her, then stop this. Tomoe looks and them and says, "Love? What is love?"
They stare at him shocked.
Hotaru swallows the crystal; her hair becomes long, and her body becomes adult.
A black star appears on her forehead. Uranus and Neptune are shocked- that's
not Sailorsaturn! The woman says she is the Messiah of Silence, Mistress 9.
The Sailor Team says it isn't Saturn so what does that mean? Mercury says
Hotaru's become a Death Buster.
Kaolinite is happy that they've won. Tomoe thanks her for her hard work, and
she's glad he said that. She's about to say more when a wave of electricity
throws her against the electric field; she falls to the ground and dies.
Mistress 9 says Kaolinite's work is done; now they move on to the next step.
She and Tomoe disappear along with the field. The ceiling begins to cave in.
Sailormoon goes to Chibi-usa's body, and Uranus tells her to hurry since it's
going to collapse.
Great energy explodes out of Mugen Gakuen as parts of the building collapse.
Tuxedo Kamen, Pluto, and the cats are outside. The other senshi run out with
Chibi-usa's body. Sailormoon says Chibi-usa isn't breathing. The cats say
all the students are out, and everyone runs off. Pluto stops and sees Uranus
and Neptune standing on a nearby pillar.
In Mamoru's apartment, Mamoru links his life to Chibi-usa's to keep her alive.
Usagi says there's no point in fighting if Chibi-usa doesn't live. Setsuna
tells the Sailor Team that she's going back to Mugen Gakuen with Uranus and
Neptune to destroy the Messiah of Silence. The others yell that Hotaru is the
Messiah of Silence. Setsuna says there's no way to save Small Lady without
killing the Messiah. She turns and leaves.
Usagi says she doesn't want to see any more tears. Mamoru says, "Usako," and
she nods at him. The Sailor Team then walks towards Mugen Gakuen as Mamoru
says they have to fight for the sake of what they believe in.
