In the Professor's lab, Kaolinite appears and says that she's found a new target:
the pure hearts of lovers. She asks if the Professor has a new daimon egg ready.
The scientist asks her how many daimon eggs she will waste to achieve their
goal, since at this rate, they'll use many without success. Kaolinite says she'll
be ready this time. The Professor gives her a new egg, and she leaves.
Usagi is at school, looking for Umino. She can't find him and wonders where he
is. Then Umino calls Usagi's name from an alley. Usagi asks what he's doing
there, and he tells her he has a secret story. He recounts how Naru has been
acting strangely, but when he asked her if she was hiding anything from him, she
laughed and said no. He's very worried and wonders if she has a new boyfriend,
then says how he's been working hard to make fried shrimp for her everyday. He
gets very emotional and worked up over the shrimp making, and Usagi comments
how sad he is. Usagi says she'll ask Naru about it anyway, and Umino says he's
counting on her.
Later, Usagi and Naru are sitting in front of a fountain. Usagi asks Naru how
she's doing with Umino, and Naru says she's worried because Umino's been acting
strange lately. Usagi says Naru feels that way too? and Naru's confused, but
Usagi asks her what she means. Naru thinks Umino might have a new girlfriend,
and Usagi reassures her that's not the case since Umino can't be *that* popular.
Naru gets a bit angry, saying Umino is a good person, then leaves. Usagi
thinks that the two of them just have a misunderstanding that needs to be resolved,
so she'll go to Rei for help on the subject, since Rei told her to come to her
anytime for help with love.
Usagi is at Rei's place telling her the story. Rei says that the problem is they
just want reassurance from the other that they still love each other, so she has
a solution: enter Naru and Umino in an Affection Contest. The winning couple
gets to turn on the light on the heart monument in Lovers' Park. Rei figures that
during the contest, their love will deepen. Usagi gets excited and wants to
enter with Mamoru, but Rei tells her if they win, Naru and Umino's relationship
will suffer. Usagi says, "Oh," then comments how Rei is so smart. Rei gets
irritated but just tells Usagi that she should hurry since the contest is on a
first come, first serve basis.
Usagi runs up the steps to where the contest is being held in Lovers' Park.
Umino and Naru follow her, wondering where she's going, but Usagi tells them
to hurry up. However, when she reaches the top, she sees a sign that says the
contest is not accepting any more applicants, and she falls down, upset. She
tells Naru and Umino that she hoped to help them by entering them in the contest.
Naru and Umino both say at the same time, "Well, to tell you the truth..." and
pull out tickets for the contest at the same time. They look at each other
surprised and blush. Umino says he wanted to enter the contest all along, and
Naru says that's why he was nervous. Usagi points out that Naru was the same
That evening, Umino prepares for bed by stretching. He gets into bed and starts
counting sheep to fall asleep. (He also makes sheep sounds (baaing)). (A big
poster of Naru's face hangs above his bed.) Meanwhile, the daimon egg enters
the big heart statue. The next morning, Umino is still up and is still
counting sheep (he's at 13,000), trying to fall asleep.
Haruka and Michiru sense the prescence of evil in Lovers' Park and think a daimon
will attack there soon. Haruka says she won't let the enemies have the Talismans.
Usagi is with Naru and Umino at the contest. Umino is acting funny, still baaing,
and unable to walk properly. Usagi spots Minako, Makoto, Rei, and Ami and asks
them what they're doing there. Rei says they're here to cheer Naru and Umino
on; Minako says whereever there is love, she will appear; Makoto says it looks
fun; and Ami says it's for her "interest." The others ask "What interest?" and
Ami says it's just a figure out speech but blushes anyway, covering her face in
Usagi notices Haruka and Michiru; Rei says they look great. Mako wonders if
they're entering the contest, and Mina says, "Between girls?" But they say
that Haruka and Michiru look like a real couple.
An announcer says that the contest will begin soon, so please come to the stage.
Usagi says they'll go cheer Umino and Naru on, and the others agree. On
stage, the MC begins the show and says that the couples on stage (five couples,
all pretty goofy-looking except for Haruka and Michiru) are full of love, and
the winners of the Affection Contest are the ones who are most pure-hearted in
that love. Kaolinite watches from behind a tree in back of the crowd and
Usagi cheers for Naru and Makoto for Umino, but Rei calls to Michiru how great
she looks, and Minako yells at Haruka to look at her. The other three look at
the two, asking them who's side they're on. Ami says that that's what's called
a "stumbled assassin." Rei and Minako bow their heads and grin, apologizing.
The first test is sort of a warm-up. The girlfriends are behind doors with only
their hands visible through holes in the doors. The boyfriends must identify
their girlfriend's hand. Haruka finds Michiru's hand within a few seconds. The
MC's surprised at how fast Haruka is. The younger girls watch. Usagi says,
surprised: "Haruka-san..." and Ami wonders if they really have such a relationship.
Everyone looks at her and she blushes. On stage, the MC asks Haruka to tell
them the name of her girlfriend. Haruka is irritated by the request, but the MC
says he's just doing what he's supposed to. Haruka closes her eyes and says
confidentally/arrogantly, "Michiru" and Michiru comes out. The MC says Haruka's
right. The other boyfriends continue to search for their girlfriends.
Usagi says Umino is next. On stage, Umino is deciding between two hands. One
has a bandage on it, the other doesn't. Umino remembers how one day Naru gave
him a handkerchief and had a bandage on her hand, so he decides the bandaged
one is Naru's. The MC tells him to call his girlfriend's name, which he does.
The girl behind the door says, "You're wrong," and the MC repeats it. Umino
is certain that it's Naru's hand and pulls on it; the girl says he's hurting
her and punches him in the face. Everyone laughs, and Usagi says, "Yare
yare..." Naru is exasperated, thinking that she had her bandage six months ago,
then realizes Umino still remembers that even though it happened a long time ago.
The MC asks Umino, who's on the ground, how he feels. Umino says bad, but it's
not as bad as Naru must feel in her heart. He lifts his arms up and yells to
Naru to forgive him. The MC sweatdrops and says he'll move on to the next
contestant. Haruka has her hand on her forehead, saying that this is just a
game (so Umino shouldn't take it so seriously). Michiru looks away and says
she thinks it's wonderful that Umino is taking it to heart. To him, it's not
just a game. Haruka has on her face the look of a person who's been criticized.
Next is the "three-legged contest of love," which is a three-legged contest but
the contestants apparently have to balance an egg on a ping-pong paddle (@.o;;;)
Michiru and Haruka win of course. Following that is the "karaoke of love"
contest, which Haruka and Michiru win again. Umino sings something about turtle
eggs, while Naru sweatdrops and tells him that's wrong. Haruka says that
Umino's horrible, but Michiru says that he's number one in love. Haruka agrees,
and they hope that Umino wins the contest.
Afterwards, all the contestants are back on stage. The MC says it's the final
part of the contest where the lovers have to confess their love for each other.
The audience will be the judges through their applause. The MC points the
microphone at Haruka, telling Michiru Haruka will confess "his" love for her.
Haruka and Michiru are both smiling confidentally with their eyes closed,
and Haruka says, "Show is over" (in REALLY bad English). The MC is surprised.
Haruka says the show is over and they give up. They only entered for fun,
but if they keep playing, they might win. The ones who should win are those
who are truly in love. Haruka demonstrates her showmanship by saying with
feeling, "Love... love is everything!" The audience stares at her in awe, and
Haruka says, "That's all" and leaves. Michiru pauses, then follows saying,
The MC moves on to another couple: a man in a trenchcoat, Takao, and a round
woman with pigtails and glasses, Hanako. The man tells the girlfriend that
he wants her to come with her, and she says she's happy, but hugs the MC
tightly instead. The man says her eyes are so bad. The next guy says love is
a fight and runs towards his girlfriend; she shrieks and hits him with a
hammer, and he says, lying on the ground, that love is to endure.
The MC moves on to Umino and Naru. Umino isn't sure what to say, but walks
towards Naru and trips over the microphone wire. Everyone laughs at him.
Umino, on the ground, starts to talk sincerely about how Naru is like the sun.
He's probably not perfect enough for her and isn't sure why she's dating him,
but he's always happy when he sees her smile, so to protect her smile, he'll
dedicate his life to her. Naru and everyone in the audience is crying from his
speech. Even the MC is stunned into silence from the moving words, and the
audience cheers loudly for Umino. The MC says that Umino and Naru have, without
a doubt, won.
Umino and Naru head towards the love monument. Umino thinks this is a testament
of their love for each other and reaches out to touch it. Suddenly a bright
light shines from it, and it transforms into a heart daimon, "Daiheart." Everyone
runs away, and Umino stands in front of Naru. Naru tells Umino to run away, but
Umino says that it's their love monument. Naru doesn't care, but the daimon
says that Umino must be have a Talisman in his pure heart for thinking of his
girlfriend. The black star under her eye shoots out a beam towards the two;
Umino pushes Naru out of the way and takes the beam. Naru screams, "Umino!" and
so does Usagi. The five senshi transform (Usagi's full transformation sequence,
the other four thankfully have condensed versions).
The daimon is about to take Umino's heart crystal when the Sailor Team stops
her. Sailormoon says that even if Cupid forgives the daimon, she won't. The
other senshi say their names. Kaolinite laughs, and Daiheart puts its hand
in its heart-chest. Suddenly five men appear and invite the senshi to dance:
"Let's dancing." All the senshi but Mercury eagerly accept (Mercury clearly
wants to but is too shy). Then the men turn into monsters and wrap vines around
the senshi's bodies, electrocuting them. The daimon walks towards Umino, and
Naru stands in front of him. The daimon slaps her out of the way and is about
to get Umino's heart crystal again, but cherry blossoms and music somehow signal
to the daimon that it's not alone. Daiheart turns around to see Uranus and
Neptune behind her.
Uranus and Neptune introduce themselves. Kaolinite laughs and tells Daiheart to
get them dancing partners too. Uranus says she'll find her own dancing partner
and uses "World Shaking" on the daimon. The monsters holding the Sailor Team
captive disappear, and Uranus tells them not to be fooled. Kaolinite laughs, and
Uranus and Neptune turn to face her. Kaolinite says that even if the senshi
defeat Daiheart, they (the enemies) will just produce more daimon eggs. Uranus
and Neptune say then they'll defeat Kaolinite. Kaolinite laughs, saying, "Oh
really?" and snaps her fingers. A bolt of lightning shoots down and Uranus and
Neptune dodge out of its way. Kaolinite says they're 10 years behind her and
Naru is cradling Umino on the ground, telling him to hold on. The five Sailor
Senshi run forward to help him but are stopped by the daimon. Uranus says the
heart crystal is not a Talisman. Naru asks who they are, and Neptune tells her
to take care of Umino, returning the heart crystal to his body. Umino awakens,
and Naru is relieved. Daiheart is about to repeat its old attack, but
Sailormoon says they won't fall for it again. She uses "Moon Spiral Heart
Attack" and defeats the daimon.
There are a few people left at the park, and they watch as Umino and Naru turn
on the love monument's switch. It glows ghastly pink, and the two turn to
applause. Usagi thanks Rei for her help, and the others say how happy Umino
looks and how well he did. Ami says she envies Umino and Naru, and the others
look at her as she blushes.
On stage, Naru tells Umino he isn't bad at all, then asks what's for lunch
tomorrow. Umino says he'll make a big fried shrimp, and Naru gives him a look,
