Act 18 - Invasion, Sailor Venus is the eighteenth episode of the second anime series. It first aired in Japan on March 21st, 2015


With Sailor Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter all in the hands of the Black Moon Clan, Minako suggests that she and Usagi talk to Chibiusa directly and get the information they need out of her on their new enemies so that they can rescue their fellow Sailor Senshi and eliminate the Black Moon once and for all. But the last of the Spectre sisters' is resolved to avenge her fallen sisters by turning all humans against the people of the White Moon.



Changes from the Manga

  • Calaveras' trap for Sailor Venus took place in a studio, not an open field.
  • Rolling Heart Vibration is not used in the Black Moon saga, but in the Dark Kingdom arc.

Changes from the Original Anime

  • Sailor Venus had been taken captive along with Sailors Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter by Rubeus to force Sailor Moon to surrender Chibiusa to him.
  • Calaveras did not perish at Sailor Moon's hands, but was reformed as a human woman; alongside her three sisters by Sailor Moon's healing ability, Moon Crystal Power, from the Silver Crystal.
  • Rolling Heart Vibration was never once used.
  • Calaveras did not have the ability to channel spirits of the dead, but used an energized whip as her main weapon.
  • Mamoru never had the four colored stones that had contained the spirits/souls of his four devoted servants-Kunzite, Zoisite, Jadeite, and Nephrite-nor did they appear again after the first season.
  • Tuxedo Mask never had any other types of attacks; other than hurling red roses at his enemies to immobilize or weaken them.
