"Act 35 - Sailor Venus and Zoisite are Working Together?" is the 35th episode of Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon. It aired in Japan on June 12, 2004.
The episode begins with Usagi getting ready for bed, even though the sun hasn't quite set just yet. Luna is surprised by this. Usagi explains to Luna that she has to be up early the next morning to buy tickets for Minako Aino's concert. Luna is unhappy that Usagi is going with Mamoru even though their relationship is forbidden. Usagi replies that Luna might as well just approve since they have already have decided.
At Azabu Public Hospital, Mamoru sits by the bed where Mio is sleeping. When she wakes up, he explains that she had fainted in the road and had brought her here. Mio expresses her thanks to Mamoru and puts her hand on his, which makes him look uncomfortable. At the same exact moment, Queen Beryl declares that soon her hand will reach his and that the Princess will not be able to interfere.
Mamoru calls Usagi from the Hospital to tell her what had happened and that he will stay at the Hospital a little longer since none of Mio's family arrived. Usagi, who had been awakened by the phone call, dozes off in the middle of it. After Mamoru realizes it, he wishes her an amused good night and hangs up. As he heads back to the room where Mio is in, he sees a room where Minako is a patient.
As Minako is lying in bed with an IV in her arm, Artemis expresses his concern that Minako is still relying on just some basic treatment for her condition. She reminds him that they had already agreed to not waste time on unnecessary things and that the reason she is alive is to stop the past from repeating itself. Remembering what Mamoru had said to Usagi about proving that would not happen, she observes that both of them are wrong and that she will need to find a way to stop them.
After a nurse tells Mamoru that the visiting hours are over, he starts to leave. Mio tries to convince him to let her do something to repay him for his help but Mamoru refuses and he leaves. Mio pretends to be hurt by this, until he turns away, at which point she casts a dark scowl in his direction.
Queen Beryl observes that even in the past, Endymion never saw her, but this time it will be different.
Kunzite mentions Queen Beryl's obsession to Zoisite, who thinks that everyone with memories from their past life drags the past along with them. Kunzite suggests that he could take advantage of it and gain power over Queen Beryl by controlling Endymion. This idea angers Zoisite, who thinks that he might need help in protecting his Master.
As Minako is leaving the Hospital, she sees Mamoru in the hallway. She races after him but he reaches his motorcycle before she can stop him. As she stands in the parking way garage, Zoisite appears. He notes that the Sailor Guardians are after his Master. Minako transforms into Sailor Venus and attempts to use Venus Love Me Chain to attack him but he dodges it and easily grabs her from behind, holding a knife to her throat. He warns her to stay away from his Master. Sailor Venus and Artemis are shocked that Zoisite remembers his past life as well. She tells Zoisite to stay away from the Princess so that the planet won't be destroyed. Zoisite realizes that they both have a common goal after all. He suggests to Sailor Venus that they have a talk.
Meanwhile, at the Secret Base, Luna, who is in her human form, complains about Usagi going to bed early. When she explains why, Makoto abruptly begins packing up her things. She was not really listening as Luna says that Sailor Venus and Artemis will not be happy about Usagi and Mamoru being together. Ami and Rei wonder if Sailor Venus is so very strict because she remembers more about her past life. In the meantime, Makoto rushes out the door.
Zoisite tells Sailor Venus that in the past, they were unable to stop the tragedy that was caused by Endymion and Serenity. Sailor Venus agrees with him that this time they need to do so. Zoisite says that Queen Beryl is after Endymion, but he can't completely separate himself from her. He asks Sailor Venus to protect Endymion instead and he offers a music box in exchange.
Usagi arrives at the ticket seller's booth to find that Minako's show has completely sold out. She wanders away, dejected, just before Makoto arrives and is in turn disappointed to not get a ticket.
Usagi is slowly walking down the street. She is disappointed that she is not able to go to the concert after all. Then, a van pulls up beside her and Minako invites her to get in. Usagi is absolutely ecstatic to be with her favorite idol and Minako is amused by her antics for a moment until she glances down at the music box on the seat beside her. She remembers Zoisite telling her that once Usagi has heard the Music Box it will make her completely forget about the one she loves. She also remembers Zoisite telling her that Music Box will only work if it used by someone she trusts. Minako turns back to Usagi and invites her to lunch. That makes her even more excited.
Once they are at the restaurant, Minako starts to pull out the music box when Usagi suddenly says she has to thank her. Usagi tells her that there was someone she really liked and things were not going very well. But whenever she was depressed or wanted to give up, she would hear Minako's music and it made her happy again. And now that things are going well, she believes it is going well thanks to Minako's songs. Minako begins to look uncertain and Artemis, who is watching, is concerned.
Mamoru turns away from his motorcycle and he finds Mio standing behind him. She says that she wants to thank him and reaches out toward him but he slaps her hand away. Undismayed, she moves in quickly and embraces him before he has time to stop her and she begins to laugh as the both of them were being surrounded by swirling black flower petals.
Dismayed, Zoisite bangs his hands down on the piano keys as he now realizes that Mio was Queen Beryl's shadow.
While Usagi eats, Minako looks down at the music box. She is telling herself that she has to complete her mission. Usagi abruptly comes up beside her. She asks her what's wrong and she drops the box. This allows the lid to fall open so the music plays. When Usagi hears it, she freezes in place.
As Mamoru stares vacantly at nothing, Mio takes his hand and she leads him away.
Usagi stands frozen, unseeing, as her memories of Mamoru burn away. Suddenly, Zoisite appears and warns Minako that Queen Beryl is trying to abduct Endymion and he demands that she honor her end of the deal. As soon as Usagi hears the name "Endymion," she turns and starts to walk away slowly, as though sleepwalking. Minako follows after her, ignoring Zoisite's demands that she help Endymion and opens the music box again. She apologizes to her princess. She says that it is for the sake of the planet.
As Mio leads Mamoru on, Kunzite suddenly appears and attacks him but he is stopped by Jadeite. The 2 of them fight and one of Kunzite's blows is deflected and it injures Mamoru's arm.
Usagi begins to sing "C'est la Vie" and Minako sadly observes that she also knows how it feels to forget. As she watches Usagi, she now realizes that the princess truly does love Endymion that much. She drops the music box. This causes it to shatter on the floor.
The spell on Mamoru is broken and he calls Usagi's name which surprises the Dark Kingdom minions. Sailor Moon arrives and uses Moon Twilight Flash. This causes Mio to retreat. The other 2 find themselves facing both her and Prince Endymion and the four of them fight. Sailor Venus appears in time to deflect one of Kunzite's attacks who then joins in the fray. Their fight is interrupted by the arrival of a bank of dark clouds, upon which appears the image of Queen Beryl. She orders the Shitennou to stop and teleports them away.
Sailor Venus hands Sailor Moon an envelope, telling her that it is an apology for what happened that day. Then she leaves. Sailor Moon opens it to find tickets to Minako's concert and wonders why Sailor Venus had them. Endymion says that it's because that is her own concert and is startled to find that Sailor Moon didn't know. It takes her a minute to figure out what he means. But once she does, Sailor Moon is stunned.
At the concert, Minako performs her song, "Romance" before an enthusiastic crowd. Usagi and Mamoru rush in late and stand at the back to watch. While singing, Minako suddenly becomes dizzy and collapses on stage. The stage crew rushes in and surrounds her while Usagi watches, distressed as the episode ends.
