The Astrology of Sailor Moon – Part IV: Chibi Usa and Black Lady

It is now that we arrive at the heart of the second story arc of Sailor Moon. In Part I of this series, I discussed the Plutonian overtones and continued with them in Part II. In Part II, we also encountered Sailor Pluto for the first time. In Part III, we arrived in Crystal Tokyo of the 30th Century and learned about Planet Nemesis. Now we are ready to learn Chibi Usa’s story, and to discover what happened in the 30th Century.

Before we begin with that, at the end of Part III, we left with the abduction of Sailor Moon. I will briefly state that with the help of the spirit of Neo Queen Serenity and her own determination, Sailor Moon is able to free herself and Sailors Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter. While this is an interesting and dramatic part of the plot, there is not much astrology involved, so please forgive me for this cursory description.

While all of these events were taking place, Chibi Usa, seemingly upset by Usagi-chan’s jealousy and coldness towards her, runs away to Crystal Tokyo, and we learn her backstory.

Chibi Usa/Small Lady

Chibi Usa is the central character in this story arc from an astrological point of view. Her full name is Usagi “Small Lady” Serenity, and she is first born Princess of Crystal Tokyo. As discussed in Part III, in the manga and Sailor Moon Crystal, despite her appearance, she is approximately 900 years old. She is the Heir Presumptive and hope for the future for Crystal Tokyo. There is one serious difficulty, however. She is unable to transform.

It seems that Chibi Usa’s inability to transform led to her being ridiculed by other children. They accused her of being a nisemono Princess, or a pretend or fake Princess. Upset with the ridicule which likely echoed her own insecurities, Chibi Usa ran off and found the forbidden door guarded by Sailor Pluto. Sailor Pluto befriended her and taught her ways to cheer herself when she was sad and upset. It is often our fears and pain that lead us into Plutonian territory.

vlcsnap-2018-07-09-18h25m29s218

Later Chibi Usa went to the Crystal Chamber where the Maboroshi no Ginsuishou was housed and she stole it. The Maboroshi no Ginsuishou was the item that Sailor Moon used to transform, so presumably, Chibi Usa was trying again to see if she could transform. Immediately afterwards, the villains from Planet Nemesis appeared and destroyed Crystal Tokyo. Her father, King Endymion, had told her that Sailor Moon from the past was muteki, which literally means, without rival, but is often translated as invisible. It was for this reason that Chibi Usa stole one of Sailor Pluto’s time keys and returned to the past to find Sailor Moon, which is where the second story arc began.

Toxic Shame, Guilt, and Trauma

It was toxic shame that led Chibi Usa to find the forbidden door and Sailor Pluto in the first place. She was ashamed that she was not yet able to transform. I think that what made this shame toxic was that there was nothing that she could do about this inability. There was not a training course she could take; it had nothing to do with anything that she had any control over. She believed that being the daughter of Sailor Moon and the Heir Presumptive to Crystal Tokyo “should” have given her the ability to transform, but at that point of time, it did not. Yes, other children ridiculed her, but I do not believe that this ridicule would have affected her had it not echoed her own internal shame.vlcsnap-2018-07-09-18h22m50s002

The villains from Planet Nemesis arrived and destroyed Crystal Tokyo immediately after Chibi Usa stole the Maboroshi no Ginsuishou, which led her to believe that she was responsible for this destruction.

Returning to the present story line, when Chibi Usa runs off, she is captured by Wiseman, who is the leader of the villain group. In the older anime, Wiseman manipulates her memories, planting two traumas in her mind. The first trauma was of her falling and her parents refusing to help her get up, and the second trauma was everyone refusing to acknowledge or celebrating her birthday.

In this story the memories were altered and twisted. When Chibi Usa’s parents would not help her up, it was because they were trying to teach her to get up on her own when she fell, and the reason that everyone ignored her birthday was that they were planning a surprise party for her. Wiseman used true memories and manipulated them so Chibi Usa saw them in the worst possible light. This made Chibi Usa believe that her parents did not love her.

vlcsnap-2018-07-09-18h28m35s961The toxic shame, guilt, and in the earlier anime, the trauma planted in her memory, all led Chibi Usa to be vulnerable to being recruited by the side of Evil. Toxic shame, guilt, and trauma, real or imagined, are all dangers of Plutonian forces. Chibi Usa literal found the door to the Dark by entering into forbidden territory and finding Sailor Pluto, and the villains seized the opportunity and completed her journey into Darkness.

vlcsnap-2018-07-09-18h34m22s377Black Lady

After being taken over by the side of Evil, Chibi Usa does transform, but not in the way everyone had hoped for. She became an adult instantaneously and called herself Black Lady. As Black Lady, she became one of the villains, and indeed, became one of the most powerful of the villains. She managed to also turn Tuxedo Kamen, her future father into an automaton under her complete control, and began to engage in what appeared to be a romantic relationship with him.

vlcsnap-2018-07-09-18h36m54s024I think that this dark transformation is one of the real dangers of the Plutonian principle. In our day and age, children seem to grow up very fast. They engage in many adult behaviors at a very early age, and thus grow up warped and skewed.

The metal of Pluto is the radioactive plutonium, which is used for nuclear weapons and nuclear power. Plutonium is inherently unstable, and in a sense allows us to “grow up” or gain power very quickly, but the consequences of this are obvious. In Modern Astrology, Pluto is often considered the planet of transformation, and all of this does represent “transformation” of a sort, but I do not think that it is quite a dangerous one, not one to be celebrated.

Restoration

The story climaxes as Black Lady and Prince Demando, who was the leader of the villains before Wiseman, and who brought the villains to Wiseman, go back to Crystal Tokyo to complete their destruction. During the battle that ensued, Prince Demando came into possession of Sailor Moon’s Maborishi no Ginsuishou and the one from the future. We learned earlier that if both of these Crystals come into contact with each other it will destroy everything everywhere, Good and Evil alike.

vlcsnap-2018-07-09-18h16m39s655In the midst of all of this, we return to Sailor Pluto, who senses the danger and is told what is happening by Diana, the kitten we met much earlier. Sailor Pluto knows it is forbidden for her to leave her post, but she wants to do something to help. The kitten Diana offers to guard in her place, and she goes through the door to fight with the other Sailor Senshi. We also get a flashback to a conversation between a younger Sailor Pluto and Queen Serenity from the Silver Millennium. In this conversation, we learn of three taboos. It appears that Sailor Pluto has the ability to stop time, but that it is forbidden for her to use this ability, and if she does it will destroy her.

vlcsnap-2018-07-09-18h51m13s713When Sailor Pluto enters the scene, she sees Prince Demando bringing the two Maboroshi no Ginsuishou together, and she uses her power of stopping time, which enables Sailor Moon to take back the crystals. As per the taboo, using this power does destroy Sailor Pluto. Black Lady is moved by the destruction of her dear friend and goes towards her crying. Through her tears over love for her friend, she reverts back to her true child state, and she then transforms into Chibi Sailor Moon.

vlcsnap-2018-07-09-18h49m28s023I think that the destruction of her friend does lead Chibi Usa towards a feeling of true shame and remorse, which is very different from the toxic shame and guilt that led her to the side of Darkness. Chibi Usa had turned away from the Light, and feeling shame for this led her to tears of repentance. She was also able to then tell her mother, Neo Queen Serenity of her believe that her theft had led to the original destruction, and her mother was able to tell her the original destruction was not her fault.

vlcsnap-2018-07-09-18h56m56s910After this, Chibi Sailor Moon chose to assist Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Kamen in the final destruction of Wiseman, who we learn is actually Planet Nemesis. All is restored, and there is a happy ending.

Pluto and Transformation

I think that in this story, Sailor Pluto does not represent the Plutoian principle, but instead represents the guardian protecting us from this principle. She is the keeper of the forbidden door. Chibi Usa ventured into this forbidden territory, which led her to a Plutonian transformation into Black Lady, which was marked by an unnatural growth into adulthood and a turning to the side of Evil. Sailor Pluto protected her and the world from the consequences of this “transformation” through her own self-sacrifice. This in turn enabled Black Lady to shed cleansing tears of repentance, which led to a true transformation into Chibi Sailor Moon.

Did the Plutonian principle enable Chibi Usa’s eventual true transformation? Perhaps. An argument can be made for this. On the other hand, all of the previous Sailor Senshi had gained their transformation abilities without ever venturing into Plutonian territory. The common thread to the transformations of all of the Senshi was the willingness and courage to resist the Dark and stay strong in the Light. The difference is that Chibi Usa needed a longer and more complicated journey than the former Senshi.

Coming Soon: The Third Story Arc and the Outer Planet Senshi

The Astrology of Sailor Moon – Part III: Crystal Tokyo and Planet Nemesis

In Part I of this series, we talked about the astrological and metaphysical symbolism is the first story arc of Sailor Moon and the beginning of the second story arc. In Part II, we continued through the second story arc, faced Sailor Pluto, and arrived in the 30th Century, where we encounter a woman sleeping inside a large crystal encasement who looks like Sailor Moon and a man who looks like Tuxedo Kamen. As the story progresses, we discover that the woman is Neo Queen Serenity, who is the future Sailor Moon, and the man is the spirit of King Endymion, who is the future Tuxedo Kamen. We also discover that Chibi Usa is the daughter of Neo Queen Serenity and King Endymion and that in the 30th Century, she is called Princess “Small Lady” Serenity. We also meet a kitten who is the daughter of Sailor Moon’s feline partner, Luna, and Sailor Venus’ feline partner, Artemis. The kitten’s name is Diana, and she will be important later.

vlcsnap-2018-05-31-19h28m16s116In the manga and Sailor Moon Crystal, Sailor Moon became Neo Queen Serenity at the age of 22 and ascended to the throne of a newly created Crystal Tokyo. We learn that during the prior Silver Millennium,  people had a lifespan of around 1,000 years. When Queen Serenity ascended to the throne, by the power of the Maboroshi no Ginsuishou, everyone else began to enjoy similar long life spans as in the previous Silver Millennium, and their aging stopped as well. In this version, Chibi Usa is around 900 years old.

In the original anime, there was a cataclysm which put the world in a deep freeze. Sometime around the 30th Century, Sailor Moon awoke as Neo Queen Serenity. With the Maboroshi no Gunsuishou, she woke up and cleansed the world, and Crystal Tokyo was born.

Traditional Vision of the Future

In traditional thought, time passes through four ages. In Vedic philosophy, this cycle is called the Manvantara, or the Great Cycle, which starts with the Satya Yuga, or Golden Age, and continues in turn through the Treta Yuga, or Silver Age, the Dvpara Yuga, or Bronze Age, and finishes with the Kali Yuga, or Iron Age. The length of these ages is proportionate rather than equal, and the ratio is 4:3:2:1, with the Golden Age being the longest and the Iron Age being the shortest. According to this doctrine, we are currently living in the final stages of the Iron Age, which may have started around 6,000 years ago, and when this Age is complete, there will be a new Golden Age.

This doctrine was also explained by Plato, and can be seen in a very abbreviated and simplified version in the description of the “end times” and the “Second Coming” in Christian theology. The actually length of the various ages is unknown, and no legitimate tradition will say when the end of this Age will be. In the Christian written tradition it is said, “about that day and hour no one knows, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” Matthew 24.28, NRSV.

It is also unknown what the new Golden Age will look like, except  that in comparison to the Late Iron Age it will seem like Paradise. It is unlikely, however, that we will live in physical bodies in the same way that we do in this Age. It is interesting that the old anime series describes a cataclysm and a period of time where everyone is asleep. From our limited Iron Age perspective, this is how the next Golden Age may seem. On the other hand, even though from a purely physical perspective we may seem “asleep,” we will likely be living in an idyllic dreamlike state.

vlcsnap-2018-05-31-19h37m06s706

In the Sailor Moon original anime, this sleeping state lasted about a thousand years; however, the next Golden Age will likely last tens of thousands of years until it passes to the next Silver Age.  I find it interesting in Sailor Moon Crystal and the manga that peoples’ lifespans in the Silver Millennium and Crystal Tokyo were about a thousand years because in traditional doctrine, we did have much longer lifespans in former Ages. In the Judeo-Christian written tradition, before the Great Flood there are descriptions of individuals with very long lifespans, the longest recorded being Methuselah, who lived 966 years.

Planet Nemesis

After the explanation of Crystal Tokyo, we learn of the 10th planet, Planet Nemesis, which is the base for the villains, Black Moon. Planet Nemesis produces Minus Energy, which is causing destruction in the 30th Century and in the century where Sailor Moon lives.

vlcsnap-2018-05-31-19h40m19s833.jpgThe Sailor Moon manga was first serialized from 1991 to 1997, and the original anime series was broadcast between 1992 and 1997; the second story arc was published in 1993. More than 10 years later, on January 5, 2005, the dwarf planet Eris was discovered, and given its official name in September of 2006. Eris is the Greek goddess of strife and discord. True to its name, Eris’ discovery prompted a great deal of strife and discord because it was thought to be larger than Pluto. For a time, Eris was considered the 10th planet, but later it was classified as a dwarf planet and Pluto was demoted to dwarf planet as well. An asteroid, Ceres, was promoted to dwarf planet, and two more bodies, Makemake and Haumea have been added to the list.

As an astrologer who uses Classical methods, I do not use the new dwarf planets in my interpretations, and I do not see myself using them in the foreseeable future. I do make limited use of Pluto, though, along with Uranus and Neptune. The Classical planets provide more than enough information for my purposes, without the need to clutter the chart with an ever increasing number of heavenly bodies.  Even so, I do find it interesting that the 10th planet Nemesis seems to have foreshadowed the discovery of a dwarf planet that was named after a goddess of strife and discord.

Return to the Present

In Sailor Moon Crystal and the manga, after the explanation, King Endymion instructs them to return to the present, and extracts a promise from Tuxedo Kamen that he will protect Chibi Usa/Small Lady with his life. This induces further jealousy on the part of Usagi-chan. She quarrels with Mamoru-san. Chibi-Usa, apparently hearing the quarrel, runs off. She returns to the future, and Tuxedo Kamen, Sailor Moon, and Sailor Venus go after her. They are confronted by Black Moon, and though they find Chibi-Usa, Sailor Moon is abducted in the process.

Part IV: Chibi Usa and Black Lady

The Astrology of Sailor Moon – Part II: More Plutonian Overtones and Sailor Pluto

In Part I of this series, I talked about the rich astrological symbolism in Sailor Moon, beginning with the very first story arc, which is a very traditional story, with classic mythic and fairy tale elements. In the first story arc, we met the Sailor Senshi* associated with the Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Venus, and from an astrological perspective, everything about them is absolutely correct.

I then discussed the beginning of the second story arc, which began with many Plutonian overtones. We met Chibi Usa, a child who was far from innocent. Sailors Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter were all abducted by villains who called themselves Black Moon. Sailor Venus was almost abducted, but was rescued just in time. Tuxedo Kamen discovered his power, the power of the Earth. We learned that Chibi Usa was from the 30th Century, which was in trouble. We left as Sailor Moon, Sailor Venus, and Tuxedo Kamen had agreed to accompany Chibi Usa to the 30th Century.

More Plutonian Overtones

vlcsnap-2018-05-11-14h53m05s193After the rescue of Sailor Venus and before the decision was made to go to the 30th Century, at Chibi Usa’s insistence, they all spent the night at Mamoru-san’s (Tuxedo Kamen’s) apartment. The night was a difficult one. Usagi-chan admitted to feelings of jealousy over Mamoru-san’s attention and affection towards Chibi Usa. She said that Chibi Usa was in love with him. Mamoru-san dismissed this, saying that Chibi Usa was just an elementary school student, and Usagi-chan said that she was a girl, and that her age did not matter. They both became embarrassed at this conversation. As they were talking, Usagi-chan seemed to fade away momentarily, which alarmed Mamoru-san. Mamoru-san and Usagi-chan embraced, and Mamoru-san reassured Usagi-chan of his love for her and his commitment to her protection. They then retired to the bedroom together.

These are interesting developments from the perspective of the overall Plutonian themes of this story arc. In Modern Astrology, Pluto is seen to represent the deeper and darker recesses of our psyche, as well as death and destruction. Modern Astrology considers all of the Outer Planets as “transcendent,” and there is a tendency to see Pluto as a “Higher Octave” of Mars. Some even go so far as to consider Pluto a planet of “transformation.” Modern Astrology also assigned rulership of the sign Scorpio to Pluto, which was traditionally ruled by Mars.

Pluto is not visible to the naked eye, and was not discovered until 1930. As such, it is not one of the planets that was used in Traditional Western Astrology. Many Traditional and Classical Astrologers do not use Pluto at all, and if they do, they do not assign Pluto the rulership of any sign. In my own work and practice, I have come to believe that Pluto represents the modern poison of deformation, or the fascination with disturbing images and the inversion of right and wrong.

The time of the discovery of Pluto was near the end of the life of Sigmund Freud. Freudian psychology, tended to probe into the darker recesses, which coincides with the modern interpretation of Pluto, proposing that our emotional difficulties stemmed from “repression” of these feelings. In modern times, there is a popular belief that these deeper, darker feelings are our “real” feelings, and that our kinder, gentler, and more noble feelings are “phony” or just for show. I think that this way of thinking is part of the poison of Pluto, and that yes, all of us have both virtues and flaws, and all of us have darker emotions and impulses: however, we all also have the choice as what feelings to embrace and what feelings to set aside. I believe that this is what Free Will is truly means.

vlcsnap-2018-05-11-15h12m17s302That night, Sailor Moon’s feline partner, Luna, had a dream that she was back in the past in the Silver Millennium. Sailor Moon’s mother from that time, Queen Serenity, was looking for Luna. It appeared that Luna found her way to a forbidden doorway. Queen Serenity became alarmed. She retrieved Luna from this place, instructing her to forget about it. There is a theme emerging in the story of hidden and forbidden places being found and disturbed.

Sailor Pluto

The next morning, they do leave for the 30th Century, with Chibi Usa leading them. As they were traveling the Senshi and Mamoru-san became separated from Chibi Usa, and in the process, they almost lost Luna. They arrived at a mysterious door and encountered Sailor Pluto, who attacked them. It appears that Sailor is a guardian for this doorway, which is the doorway to space and time, and it is her job to defend it from anyone who breaches it.

vlcsnap-2018-05-11-15h35m58s474It is clear that Sailor Pluto is not a part of the regular world of material existence. She is the guardian for a forbidden area outside of space and time. As an astrologer who uses Classical methodology, I found this really interesting. While Classical Astrologers and those who use Classical methods are divided on whether the Outer Planets have meaning, they agree that they are not a part of the planetary rulership scheme. In Modern Astrology, Pluto rules Scorpio. Classical Astrology teaches that Pluto does not rule any sign, and uses the traditional ruler of Mars for Scorpio. Whether or not the role of Sailor Pluto has any metaphysical accuracy, it is in the realm of possibility. To my surprise, I found that I had no issue with Sailor Pluto from a Classical Astrological perspective. Whatever she represents, it is certainly not a New Age notion of a Higher Octave Mars. I also am in complete agreement with Pluto representing a place where we are not supposed to go.

vlcsnap-2018-05-11-15h59m46s920

Before Sailor Pluto delivered the finishing blow, Chibi Usa arrived. Sailor Pluto stopped her attack immediately and talked to Chibi Usa. Chibi Usa confessed to stealing Sailor Pluto’s key and bringing the Senshi there in order to rescue her home. Sailor Pluto was stern, but then embraced Chibi Usa and said she had been worried about Chibi Usa’s disappearance.

We then learn that Chibi Usa is a princess in the 30th Century, and after a brief discussion, Sailor Pluto allowed them to go through the door. When they did, they found a world, the 30th Century Crystal Tokyo, that had been completely destroyed by an explosion, followed by the appearance of a large, mysterious black crystal.

vlcsnap-2018-05-11-16h17m15s827.jpg

Chibi-Usa began to lead them to her home, the Crystal Palace, but some villains from Black Moon appeared. During the battle, Sailor Moon’s powers would not work; however Tuxedo Kamen’s did, and they were able to win the battle.

After the battle, they arrived at the Crystal Palace, and found a woman who looked like Usagi-chan sleeping inside a large crystal, who was the mother of Chibi Usa and whose name was Neo Queen Serenity. They also met a kitten by the name of Diana. Then, from behind a curtain, a man appeared that looked like Tuxedo Kamen.

Part III: Crystal Tokyo and Planet Nemesis

_____________

*In Japanese, senshi means soldier, and the transformation outfits of the Senshi are reminiscent of sailor themed school uniforms

The Astrology of Sailor Moon – Part I: Foundations

Like many people, my first introduction to anime came through Sailor Moon. Unlike most, however, I first saw Sailor Moon a little over 5 years ago as an adult. As an astrologer, I was immediately impressed by how well the series incorporated astrology and traditional wisdom into the characters and plot of the story.  Indeed, I can give a lot of credit to Sailor Moon in inspiring my Japanese studies, and I was fortunate that the newer series, Sailor Moon Crystal came out in my first few years of these studies. I also used Sailor Moon manga as I was learning to read Japanese.

With respect to astrology, there are many obvious correct associations, such as the Sun Signs of the various Senshi matching their planetary associations.  For example, Usagi-chan (Sailor Moon) was born with her Sun in Cancer, and Ami-chan (Sailor Mercury) was born with her Sun in Virgo.  Another obvious correct association is the thunder-based attack of Sailor Jupiter. While the association between Jupiter and thunder is correct in the Western system, it is also correct in the Eastern elemental system.

vlcsnap-2018-04-26-14h54m55s448

It seems that the Senshi attacks are based on the Eastern, rather than the Western, elemental associations.  In the Eastern elemental system, each element is associated with a non-luminary planetary principle.  Indeed, in Japanese, the non-luminary planets themselves are named for their element. Jupiter is 木星, or “wood planet.” Mercury is 水星, suisei, or “water planet,” and Sailor Mercury’s attack is water-based.  Mars is 火星, kasei, or “fire planet,” and Sailor Mars’ attack is fire-based.  Venus is 金星, kinsei, or “gold planet,” and Sailor Venus’ Crescent beam is gold colored.  Also, heavily featured in Sailor Venus’ transformation and attack is the pentacle, the five pointed star, which is also associated with Venus.

Aside from these surface associations, there is much deeper metaphysical wisdom in Sailor Moon.  In the series, it is revealed that the Sailor Senshi have been reincarnated from Moon Kingdom of the Silver Millennium. The Silver Millennium can be seen as symbolic of the Silver Age, or Treta Yuga in traditional teachings. In the Silver Millennium, Sailor Moon was Princess Serenity.

Silver Millenium

The entire first story arc in the manga and Sailor Moon Crystal has a very traditional mythic theme. This theme is present in the original anime as well; however, in the original anime, it is muddled with many other story lines and sub-plots. (As an aside, for this reason, I will be using Sailor Moon Crystal and the manga rather than the original anime series in my discussion.)

The single male main character is Tuxedo Kamen, or Tuxedo Mask. Over the course of the first story arc, we learn that he was Prince Endymion of Earth during the time of the Silver Millennium. In true mythic or fairy tale form, Princess Serenity and Prince Endymion have a forbidden romance which ends tragically. The rest of the story arc is the cleansing and resolution of the tragedy from the past. This is a very traditional story.

The Second Story Arc: Plutonian Overtones

Given the soundness of the first story arc, I was a little worried when I came to the second story arc, particularly as I was told that I would encounter the first of the Outer Planet Senshi, Sailor Pluto, in this arc. As an astrologer who uses primarily Classical methods, I am dubious of New Age associations for the Outer Planets. I make limited of the Outer Planets in my practice, and I tend to view them as representatives of the poisons of the Modern Age.  I see Pluto as a representative of deformation, or of inversion of Light and Dark.

vlcsnap-2018-04-26-15h43m19s092Before we meet Sailor Pluto in the second story arc, there is a clear theme of deformation, or inversion. In the very beginning of this story arc, we meet Chibi Usa, a child who has clearly become hardened and cynical, and who has apparently lost her innocence.  In the first three Acts of the story, the villains abduct the Sailor Senshi one by one, first Mars, next Mercury, and then Jupiter. They abduct these Senshi by using an inversion of each of their own elemental attacks.

vlcsnap-2018-04-25-15h28m41s641

After Mars, Mercury, and Venus have been abducted, we are left with Sailor Moon, Sailor Venus, Chibi Usa, and Tuxedo Kamen. Chiba Usa steals Usagi-chan’s brooch with the all important 幻の銀水晶, Maboroshi no Ginsuishou, the literal translation of which is something like Illusory or Dream Silver Crystal.  As a result of this, Sailor Moon is unable to transform when the villains attack and attempt to abduct Sailor Venus. Fortunately, Tuxedo Kamen finds his power, which is the power of Earth.

vlcsnap-2018-04-27-02h06m42s512

He is able to hold off the first attack of the villains, and this is long enough for Chibi Usa to repent of stealing the Maboroshi no Ginsuishou. She returns the Crystal to Usagi-chan, who transforms and saves Sailor Venus from the secondary attack that was meant to abduct her. After this, we learn that Chibi Usa is from the future, the 30th Century to be precise. She then asks Sailor Moon, Sailor Venus, and Tuxedo Kamen to help the future Earth, and they agree.

vlcsnap-2018-04-27-02h24m59s030

Chibi Usa has her own Maboroshi no Ginsuishou from the future and a special key. With these two items, she is able to travel back to the future with the remaining Sailor Senshi and Tuxedo Kamen.
