Makoto, in a white karate uniform with a black belt, is running barefoot through
a forest. She trips over a root and falls to the ground. She wonders why she
couldn't beat the daimon. She remembers how the daimon, Aiangaa, was very strong.
She tried going against it, but it lifted her up and threw her down. She then
tried using "Sparking Wide Pressure" on it, but it had no effect on the daimon.
Sailormoon's "Moon Spiral Heart Attack" finally beat it. Makoto thinks she
needs to power-up and continues running.
The Professor calls Eudial. Eudial tells him that she has a new target- a priest,
Yakushiji Kakusui, who has been living in the mountains for four years and four
months in order to reach spiritual reawakening. Eudial then asks the Professor
how she'll know what the Talisman looks like. He tells her that if the heart
crystal has a Talisman, it will take that form. The three forms are the sacred
mirror, the sacred sword, and the sacred gem. When brought together, they will
form the Holy Grail. (Images of all four objects appear on the screen when
their name is mentioned.) He puts a ball with a face on it in the oven, and
Eudial's car appears out of the water and drives on the railroad.
Usagi receives a postcard from Makoto. Makoto says that she's training at a
temple in the mountains; Usagi looks at the return address and sees that the
temple is near the resort hotel where Mamo-chan is working part-time. She
says, "Lucky..." and grins.
The remaining four girls ride a train to visit Makoto. Usagi scarfs down her
food while Minako sweatdrops. Rei tells her to slow down since she's getting
food on her face. Luna and Artemis pop out of identical bags; they complain
that they're hungry so their owners should feed them. Usagi and Minako say
simultaneously, "Hai hai" and both drop shrimp into Luna and Artemis's mouths,
who chew with the same expression on their faces.
Rei asks Usagi how she convinced Chibi-usa not to come. Usagi says because of
her position as Chibi-usa's future mother, she explained to Chibi-usa why she
shouldn't come. At Usagi's house, Chibi-usa says that Usagi said she was
going to the bathroom but snuck out the back instead. Furious, she says she
won't forgive Usagi and throws down her bag. On the train, a bag falls on
The girls get off at a bus stop. Usagi says that she read there's a hotel nearby;
the girls see it and think it's great. Usagi says why don't they stay there?
Rei points out they came to help Mako with her training, but Usagi says it
doesn't matter where they stay as long as they help Makoto. Rei reluctantly says
that's a good point; Ami says she doesn't mind if she can study. Luna yells,
"STOP!" in English and tells everyone not to fall for Usagi's scheme. She says
that Mamoru-san is working at the hotel. The other girls get angry at Usagi
and accuse her of lying; they storm off to the temple with Usagi following
Usagi climbs the many steps, feeling exhausted. The other girls are really
tired too; Ami says that there are 52 times more steps than at the Hikawa Jinja.
The girls finally reach the top and see Makoto punching and kicking a tree.
They say, "Mako-chan!" She sees them and asks what they're doing here. They
tell her they came to help with her training, but she should have told them
before she left.
Suddenly, Kakusui comes running up the steps and flips over the girls. Makoto
says he's great, he runs around the mountains 50 times a day. Usagi says Mako's
in love with him, but Makoto turns red, saying that's not it. She runs off,
saying she has to train. Kakusui is standing under a waterfall. Makoto steps
into the water, which is freezing. She says she'll join Kakusui and stands
underneath another fall; a few seconds later she comes out, saying she can't do
it. She tells Kakusui she's in a slump and that her power was ineffective
against an enemy. She wants to get more power, but she needs willpower like his.
He comes out the waterfall but doesn't say anything; she demands to know why,
and he says he couldn't move his mouth because he was so cold. He sneezes and
asks if he caught a cold. Makoto laughs. He tells her the smile suits her.
She blushes. Kakusui says his favorite phrase, "'There is no other path to make
myself feel alive. That is why I take this path.'" Makoto repeats it. Kakusui
says he is uncertain, though, if he should continue following his path if he
doesn't finish his training. Mako, in surprise, asks him if he has doubts.
Kakusui laughs and says no one has more doubts than he does.
Above the falls, Eudial says she's found her target.
That evening, the girls are sleeping in the same room at the temple. The girls
ask Makoto why she is training; Makoto says no real reason, but Rei says if she
has problems, she should share them. Usagi tells her not to pile up all her
problems; Rei makes a slight at Usagi, who gets mad and throws her pillow at Rei.
Rei throws two pillows at Usagi, but one hits Minako. Minako throws her own
pillow but it hits Ami. Soon the girls are having a pillow fight. Afterwards,
all the girls are asleep except for Makoto, who is outside on the deck. She
thinks that everyone came to see her, but she wants to solve the problem herself.
It's early morning, and the girls are awakened by Makoto's practicing. They see
that Makoto is concentrating very hard and decide not to bother her. They sit
in front of their breakfast, which is very simple, but Usagi complains she can't
live like this. Ami says it'll improve her thinking, and Rei says Usagi will
become slimmer. Usagi says she doesn't care if she gets fatter, she just wants
to eat good food while traveling. Luna and Artemis come up and say that Makoto
has already left; she is working very hard. There's a silence. Then Usagi says
they should go to the hotel to eat breakfast. Everyone falls over. Rei yells at
her if eating is all she thinks about. Usagi, upset, tells her not to be so
serious. Rei says fine, they'll go to the hotel. Ami asks what about the food,
and Usagi says she'll eat it all. Minako takes out her swimsuit. Luna and
Artemis are surprised, and then Rei and Usagi take out their swimsuits. The cats
think only Ami was serious about helping Makoto, but Ami blushes and takes out
her swimsuit. The cats drop their faces.
At the hotel, the girls sit at an table with an umbrella at the poolside. There
are a lot of people there. Usagi is happily stuffing her face when Mamoru walks
by. He's surprised to see them all here. Usagi asks him if he wants to go
somewhere with her, but he says he's too busy. He gets called by his boss and
leaves. Usagi sits down, pouting. Then some boys say, "Those girls are cute!"
The three guys say that they're pretty and want to go talk to them. Usagi,
Minako, and Rei show off a bit. Then one of the boys says there's a prettier
girl elsewhere, and they go to see her. Usagi, Rei, and Minako are suitably
Usagi, angry, stands up. She then sees that the boys are looking at Michiru and
Haruka, who are lying down in lounge chairs. Michiru has a black bathing suit
on and shades; Haruka has a blue and white swimsuit but has white shorts and a
shirt over the suit. Usagi goes over to talk to them. Haruka is surprised that
they're there; the younger girls greet them. Minako says Michiru-san looks
great in her swimsuit. Michiru thanks them but says they look great too; the
Ami tells Usagi maybe they should return to the temple. Usagi says she wants
to stay longer though. Rei says that even if Usagi stays, Mamoru won't go on
a date with her, and that's what Usagi was thinking about, right? Usagi says
Rei is mean for taunting her and jumps at her, but Rei moves and Usagi falls
into the pool. A sudden breeze comes by- Michiru says it brings the smell of
the sea and something will happen soon. Haruka nods. Usagi, in the pool,
spits out water of her mouth.
Usagi walks alone through the forest. Eudial's car drives past her, and she
runs after it.
Makoto and Kakusui are in the forest, sitting on rocks meditating. Makoto can't
concentrate and looks at Kakusui, who looks deep in meditation. She tries to
concentrate again, then hears snoring. She sweatdrops. Kakusui's head falls
forward, and he wakes up and stretches. He starts laughing. Makoto says he's
supposed to be training. Kakusui says it's important to relax sometimes, then
laughs, saying that wasn't a very good excuse. Mako smiles. She hears the
sound of a car and looks up. Eudial has her gun pointed at Kakusui. Makoto
stands in front of him but he pushes her out of the way. Eudial shoots and
Kakusui's heart crystal appears. Kakusui tells Makoto that people can't be
alone, then falls to the ground. Eudial walks towards his body. Makoto dives
into the bushes and transforms. Usagi transforms too.
Jupiter jumps in front of Kakusui saying she won't forgive Eudial. Eudial calls
out to the daimon, Darumaa. Darumaa has a weird body- the midsection is
composed of pegs and it holds a brush. It shoots needles at Jupiter with the
brush, then throws a peg at Jupiter which knocks her down. Sailormoon appears
introducing herself. The other three Senshi arrive too. Jupiter tells them
she'll do this herself. They're surprised. Jupiter throws a "Sparkling Wide
Pressure" at the daimon, but it reflects her attack. The attack hits the rock
Sailormoon is standing on. The rock explodes, knocking all the senshi down.
Eudial is about to get the crystal, but Sailoruranus gets it first. She and
Neptune are standing on a tree branch. Uranus compliments Eudial on her good
work but the heart crystal isn't the Talisman. Eudial retreats. Uranus
comments that Eudial runs away very quickly; she returns the crystal. Uranus
then asks Jupiter if she needs help; Jupiter says she'll do this on her own,
and Neptune tells her not to be too desperate. They leave.
Darumaa uses its brush and releases bristles towards Jupiter. The other senshi
surround her but get trapped by the bristles. Darumaa uses its eyes to
electrocute the senshi. The other senshi tell Jupiter that they should work
together, and she remembers Kakusui's words. She agrees that they should work
as a team; they combine their powers to break out of the bristles. Sailormoon
raises her wand, but Darumaa knocks it out of her hand. The senshi are shocked.
Jupiter confronts the daimon. She remembers how Kakusui says you need to
relax sometimes; she closes her eyes and relaxes, surprising the daimon. Then
she yells, "Sparkling Wide Pressure!" The daimon tries to reflect it, but it's
too powerful and hits it. The daimon is destroyed and turns back into the ball.
Jupiter is very happy.
The girls are riding the train back home. Both Usagi and Makoto are stuffing
their faces. Rei says that Makoto's problem must be solved. Makoto sees
Kakusui standing outside, waving. She waves back and mouths, "Thank you!"
