Fiore, an old friend from Mamoru's lonely childhood who couldn't survive on Earth, returns with flowers he promised Mamoru. But, the evil flower Kisenian overpowered Fiore's weak mind and manipulated him into spreading Kisenian's seeds over Earth in an effort to drain energy from everyone on Earth. Kisenian manages to do this because he's deceived Fiore using Fiore's long-lost friendship with Mamoru. It is up to Sailor Moon and the Sailor Senshi to stop Kisenian.

Did You Know?


Due to Chibiusa's inclusion in the main cast and her knowledge of the Sailor Senshi's identities, and also Mamoru and Usagi's intact relationship, this story most likely took place after Sailor Moon: Thoughts the Same! Usagi and Mamoru in Love Again (1993) and before Sailor Moon: Journey to the Future. Battle in the Corridor of Time (1994) since Chibiusa was still in the present. See more »


Tuxedo Mask knocks Fiore's sword out of his hands and it lands between Artemis's legs. As Fiore's nails are growing, Luna is where Artemis should be and she has the sword between her legs. The other cat is missing. Then when Tuxedo Mask falls down, both of the cats are back and they are lying down by the sword with Artemis in front again. See more »

User Reviews

A must-see, brilliant
19 December 2002 | by moon_angel2002See all my reviews

Sailormoon was created for kids, but adults can enjoy it too. The plot is unique, and all over the characters interesting and complex for a cartoon. The movie is definitely worth watching if your in the mood for a very good amine. Sure there are some lines that are a bit cheesy, but things are lost in translations. 4 1/2 out of 5 stars if you rate it by itself, and 4 out of 5 if you compare it to some of the other stuff that's out there.
