A heart crystal fads into the blackness. Hotaru's voice says, "Chibi-usa,
I'm sorry..." The star on Mistress 9's forehead glows. Mistress 9 murmurs,
"Finally, you're gone."
Sailormoon yells, "Hotaru-chan!" Uranus snaps that this isn't Hotaru. Mistress
9 agrees- Tomoe Hotaru just died. Sailormoon says that isn't true. Mistress
9 ignores her and tells them that the strange ball floating towards them is
Pharaoh 90, the master of the Death Busters. When it arrives into this world, the
Silence will begin.
Uranus and Neptune say they'll defeat her then. They use "World Shaking" and "Deep
Submerge". The two attacks combine into one powerful one, but Sailormoon jumps in
front before it can hit Mistress 9. She's thrown back by the force. Mistress 9
just smiles. Uranus and Neptune scream at her, and then Mistress 9 uses her long
hair to tie them against a statue of the Messiah of Silence.
Mistress 9 tells Sailormoon if she doesn't want Uranus and Neptune to die, then she
should give her the Holy Grail. Some more hair strands wrap around their necks
and start to cut off their air. Mistress 9 wonders if she should kill one first;
the hair tightens around Neptune's neck. Neptune manages to yell at Sailormoon
not to give Mistress 9 the Holy Grail- if she does, Neptune will lose all respect
for her. Sailormoon thinks: "But...!" Uranus screams at her not to give it up,
and Neptune yells, "Sailormoon!" Mistress 9 laughs.
Sailormoon stands up and starts to form the Holy Grail. Mistress 9's eyes widen.
Uranus screams, "Stop!"
Then Tomoe Souichi stumbles in; he's badly hurt. Sailormoon recognizes him as
Hotaru-chan's papa. Souichi says, "Hotaru..." He puts hands on Mistress 9's
shoulders and tells her he's her father. He says it's his fault all of this
happened. Mistress 9 stares down at him in disgust. She says he's the container
for Gerumatou; she tells the filth not to touch her. She knocks him away, then
uses her hair to hold him up by the neck. Sailormoon starts crying and tells
Mistress 9 to stop.
Outside, the four Sailor Senshi are struggling to hold back the daimon barrier.
It's growing stronger, and the daimon are clawing to reach them.
Souichi says, "Hotaru..." as he is strangled.
Then Hotaru's voice says, "Papa!" Sailormoon, Neptune, and Uranus stare at Mistress
9 in surprise. Mistress 9's body is shaking as she says, "Papa...!" She puts her
hand on her face, her eyes wide, and says, "It can't be...!" Sailormoon says
hopefully, "Hotaru-chan?" The hair holding the senshi and Souichi loosens; Souichi
hits the ground. Mistress 9 is breathing harshly; she says the body is rejecting
her. She falls to the ground and says, "I can't breathe, Papa!"
Uranus yells at Sailormoon to kill Mistress 9 now. Sailormoon yells back that
Hotaru-chan is still alive. Neptune yells, "Don't be fooled!"
Souichi crawls to Mistress 9's side and asks if she's okay. "Hotaru" says she
needs the Holy Grail to recover. Souichi asks where he can find it. Inside
Mistress 9, the heart crystal appears and a voice says, "Papa!" Mistress 9
stands up and screams. Then Sailormoon stands and calls the Holy Grail into
her hands. Uranus yells, "Why?!" Neptune screams that Sailormoon is not the
Messiah so has no right to decide. Sailormoon says that Hotaru is still alive;
she believes Hotaru doesn't have to be sacrificed to save the world.
Mistress 9 reaches for the Holy Grail. Sailormoon walks over to Souichi; he says
he needs it to help Hotaru. She hands it to him. He smiles and thanks her.
Then he gives it to Mistress 9. Uranus and Neptune hang their heads, silently
Mistress 9 reaches for the Holy Grail. As soon as she grabs it, she stands up
triumphantly, blasting Sailormoon and Souichi back as the Grail glows in her
hands. Mistress 9 laughs. She says that when Pharaoh 90 appears, she'll thank
Sailormoon by letting her live as a daimon container. Sailormoon desperately
cries, "Hotaru-chan!" The heart crystal disappears again.
Mistress 9 says there's nothing that Sailormoon can do. Sailormoon determinedly
says that she will save Hotaru and the world. Mistress 9 tells her that the
Holy Grail is a collection of all emotions; it's the ultimate in pure heart
crystals. Sailormoon can't possibly defeat Pharaoh 90 once he has the Holy Grail
unless she finds a heart crystal more pure than it. Mistress 9 then thrusts the
Grail into the machine and laughs. Power erupts from the machine and explodes
from the building top. The daimons suddenly get a huge burst of energy and
viciously attack the Sailor Team as Mugen Gakuen is leveled.
The container holding the Holy Grail disappears, and then the Holy Grail is
destroyed too. Sailormoon stares in shock: "The Holy Grail!" Beams of power
erupts from the mini universe's dome. Mistress 9 laughs and says, "This way,
Pharaoh 90!" The pinwheel ball, Pharaoh 90, starts to sparkle and comes closer.
Uranus yells that this is all Sailormoon's fault. Sailormoon holds up her rod
and uses "Moon Cosmic Power!" She tries to repel Pharaoh 90, but it blasts her
back. Mistress 9 says that without her second transformation, Sailormoon can't
stop the Silence. Soon her Master will appear, and the world will be theirs.
Then a beam from the dome blasts Mistress 9 as she screams, "This can't be!"
When the blast ends, Sailormoon falls to her knees- she took the energy beam
for Mistress 9 and Souichi, who is holding Mistress 9 in his arms.
Power continues to erupt from Mugen Gakuen.
A black whirlwind surrounds Mugen Gakuen. The daimons push past the senshi,
and the senshi are swept up into the tornado. They are unconscious. Then
the black field starts growing outwards at a faster speed.
Sailormoon is breathing hard. Souichi holds Mistress 9 in his arms and says,
"Hotaru..." The heart crystal appears. Hotaru's voice says, "Papa... Where
are you? It's dark in here... I can't see you." Souichi says he's right
here. Hotaru says, "I have to save Chibi-usa! Papa, help me out of here!"
Souichi says to forgive him, he doesn't know how. He says he wants to go
back to happier times.
He remembers how when Hotaru was a little girl, and they were happy together.
He closes his eyes, crying. He tightens his hand around hers. The heart crystal
shines brighter. Mistress 9 opens her eyes and says, "Papa..." Souichi looks
down at her and says, "Hotaru..." The others stare in surprise.
Suddenly Mistress 9 regains control and shoves Souichi forcefully away, screaming
at him not to touch her. She's breathing harshly. She tells Hotaru to disappear
since she's useless and unwanted. The force field continues to move outwards.
Mistress 9 tells Hotaru to die. Then Hotaru gains control and yells back, "No!"
Mistress 9 fights back, but then Hotaru thinks about her father and Chibi-usa.
She yells that she has loved ones. The sign of Saturn appears on her forehead,
and then Mistress 9 screams as her body is disintegrated, leaving only the symbol
of Saturn, which then too fades. Uranus says the senshi of destruction has been
reborn. Souichi yells, "Hotaru!"
In Mamoru's apartmen, he looks up to see Sailorsaturn. He says, "You're..." The
cats appear behind them. Saturn tells Chibi-usa she'll be okay. She floats
forward and returns Chibi-usa's heart crystal; Chibi-usa reswallows it. Artemis
says, "Sailorsaturn..." and Luna says, "Hotaru-chan!" Saturn smiles and says,
"Thank you, Chibi-usa-chan, thank you..." She then disappears.
Neptune says that Pharaoh 90 is getting stronger. Uranus murmurs that they don't
have the power to stop it. Souichi yells, "Hotaru!" again, and then the ground
beneath him and Sailormoon crumbles. The statue falls apart too, and the three
senshi and Souichi plummet to the ground. Master Pharaoh 90 appears in the
center of the black whirlwind. A fire has started where he is.
Sailormoon is lying on the ground; her uniform is torn everywhere, and she's
bleeding. Uranus and Neptune are a distance behind her, also badly hurt. Uranus
says that all their work is meaningless. Neptune says it's over. Uranus yells
to Sailormoon that she must be happy now. She screams, "Answer me!" then falls
to the ground.
A voice says, "Sailormoon." Sailormoon looks up and sees Saturn. Saturn thanks
her for protecting her body. Sailormoon says, "Sailorsaturn... Hotaru-chan!"
Souichi, from a distance away, weakly says, "Hotaru...!" Saturn smiles and says
she's no longer Hotaru. She is now the only one who can stop the Silence. She
must do so by entering the center and destroying everything. Sailormoon says
she'll go too; Saturn stops her and says that she does not have enough power since
she is not SuperSailormoon and Pharaoh 90 is using the power of the Holy Grail.
Sailormoon asks what will happen to Saturn when she destroys Pharaoh 90? Saturn
says that she is the Senshi of Destruction because she is given the power to
destroy; however, when she uses that power, she herself will... Her voice trails
off as the Silence Glaive appears in her hand. Sailormoon screams, "Don't!" and
runs forward, but is stopped when Saturn points the glaive at her. Saturn then
says, "Sayonara" and flips backwards into the center.
Pharaoh 90 starts screaming as there are blasts of a battle in the center.
Sailormoon yells, "Hotaru-chan!" and tries running in, but she's blasted back.
Sailormoon stares at the center, then starts screaming, "Crisis! Make-Up!" It
doesn't work. She clutches her brooch and screams over and over, "Crisis Make-Up!"
After the fourth or fifth time, she starts slamming her fist on the ground and
cries. Uranus and Neptune silently watch her. Sailormoon cries, "Crisis Make-Up..."
The other senshi are floating; they awaken and say, "Sailormoon" as the stones on
their tiaras glow. The stones on Uranus and Neptune's tiaras glow as well. Then
the crescent moon on Sailormoon's tiara glows with the combined powers of the other
senshi. She yells, "Crisis Make-Up!" one final time. A large heart crystal
appears in front of her, and she transforms into SuperSailormoon. Butterflies float
past her as she glides towards the center; her tears are blank with tears, and her
hands are in fists. She enters the battlefield. Master Pharaoh 90 gives one final
scream, and then the black whirlwind stops. There is one large blast of black
energy, and then the sky clears.
Uranus and Neptune stare at the huge crater where the battle was. They remember
Pluto saying, "If you find the true Messiah..." Uranus says, "True Messiah..."
They look up and see glittering objects in the sky. The members of the Sailor
Team, now lying on the ground battered and beaten, look up too. Butterflies in
the sky float towards the ground, and where they end, SuperSailormoon appears.
Her costume is torn, and she holds a black haired baby in her arms. Her eyes
are blank, the large heart crystal floating in front of her. The butterflies
trail away into the sky.
