Changes From the Manga

Changes From the Original Anime

  • Sailor Moon, as Neo-Queen Serenity and Chibiusa in her own Princess form both tapped into the full strength of their respective Silver Crystals and annihilated Death Phantom and the Malefic Black Crystal for good.
  • Usagi received the Cosmic Heart Compact in the second episode of the third season when she and Tuxedo Mask had combined their strong love. In a vision, she became Princess Serenity and Tuxedo Mask became Prince Endymion, the Spiral Heart Moon Rod appeared between them and the broken Crystal Star then became the Cosmic Heart Compact.
  • Sailor Moon never met her future self, Neo Queen Serenity face-to-face.
  • Chibiusa did not return from the future until later on in the third season to have proper training as a Sailor Guardian.
  • Sailors Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Venus were never given stronger planetary powers that enabled them to transform into their third evolutions under their own strength. They continued to transform into Sailor Guardians via "Star Power" until they evolved into Super Sailor Guardians from Pegasus's power in the fourth season.

First Appearances



  • This episode officially concludes the Black Moon saga; the second story arc of the manga.
  • After the end of the episode, the final frame ends with 'À bientôt', a message which means "see you soon".
  • When Chibiusa returns from the future with a letter from her mother, she is wearing the Cosmic Heart Compact. This is was corrected in the Viz Media dub.
