"I Love Idols: Mimete's Dilemma" is the 25th of Sailor Moon S and 114th episode overall of the Sailor Moon anime. It aired in Japan on November 19, 1994. The CWi English dub title for this episode is "Mimet's Mess" and it aired in North America on July 14, 2000.



Minako and Mimete both learn of an 18-year old idol, Araki, who is holding auditions for a co-star for his movie next summer. Both have been his fans for years and so they compete for the top prize. Mimete goes so far as to decide to quit the Death Busters if she wins - however, when she loses the audition, she attacks Araki and the audience with her daimon. The daimon proves ineffective however, comically forgetting how to use its own attacks, and thus allowing Sailor Moon to purify it with the Rainbow Moon Heartache. As Mimete tries to retrieve Araki's pure heart however, Venus knocks her hand away with the Venus Love-Me Chain and Mimete is forced to retreat.

Notable Occurrences: We see Mimete's doubts about being a Death Buster in full display as she agonizes over being a Death Buster. Tomoe begins to make the connection that all of Mimete's targets are celebrities as well. Finally, the Outer Senshi (watching from the sidelines) realize for the first time that the Death Busters may be collecting pure hearts because they already have their own messiah, though they do not yet know who that may be.
