Writer: Sukehiro Tomita
Animation Director: Kiyoshi Matsumoto
Synopsis: Minako tries to cheer Usagi up by taking her to a new salon. However, the place is just a storefront for Kunzite’s plan to find the Silver Crystal. Sailor Moon is happy to see Tuxedo Mask return, but he’s not who he used to be.
- Venus Power Make-Up is shown for the first time.
- The animation sequence and music for Moon Healing Escalation were both changed.
- Kunzite’s main mission from this point onward was to find Sailor Moon and the Silver Crystal. Mamoru actually knew her true identity, but Queen Metalia’s magic wiped his memory clean.
- The phone number for Kariko Tokoyama’s hair salon was 03-05X5-2X13. Although the number is fake (two digits are replaced with an “X”), “03” is a Tokyo area code. The Sailor Senshi reside in Azabu-Juuban, an area within Minato in Tokyo.
- The monster-of-the-day was youma Mitsuami. Her name means “braid”.
- Queen Beryl glossed over Kunzite’s failure.
[ANIMATION: CHARACTER] Sailor Mars (I).
