Determined to become more like the princess she is supposed to be, Usagi decides to enlist in Countess Rose's Princess Seminar.


Usagi ran to school because she was late as usual. Usagi met Naru at the school gate before school and thought she had been running late. Then Naru listed all of their assignments. Usagi didn't know that she had that much homework. She hadn't done anything. Then a fancy car came up. Three very rich and pretty girls came out of the car and walked into the school. Usagi thought they were very cool. Naru told Usagi that they were the girls who were going to the princess seminar at the Rose Mansion.

During the English class, Usagi was sleeping. She dreamed that Princess Serenity was at a party. Everyone thought she was very beautiful and classy. Tuxedo Mask came and asked her to dance. Usagi also dreamt that Haruna came and asked about her homework. Princess Serenity scolded Haruna and said, "What are you saying toward a princess?" Then, Haruna quickly apologized. Haruna was standing next to Usagi who was still sleeping. Haruna told Usagi to wake up. Usagi slowly woke up and muttered, "What are you saying toward a princess?" Then, Usagi woke up and realized her mistake. Since Usagi hadn't done her homework, Haruna sent Usagi to the hall.

When Usagi was standing in the hall, she decided that she had to act more like a princess. Luna came and said that it was great. But then Usagi said that it was because if she didn't, she wouldn't be able to dance with Tuxedo Mask.

At the Dark Kingdom, Queen Beryl asked Endymion to team up with Kunzite. But Endymion said that he didn't want to. He said that he would do it alone. Kunzite also said that he wanted to work alone.

Luna was talking to the computer. Luna said that Usagi was still not acting enough like a princess. Then, there was a problem with the computer. An image of Artemis wearing a headset appeared. Luna found out that it had been Artemis who had been giving Luna the instructions. Luna got upset, but Artemis said that nobody had asked before.

Usagi and Luna were sneaking around the Rose mansion. They were in a tree and spying inside. There were a lot of rich girls were sitting around while Lady Rose read a poem. Usagi got excited when she spotted a fancy cheesecake inside. Then, one of the butlers finally spotted Usagi and Luna.

Usagi and Luna fell out of the tree. When Edward asked what they were doing, Usagi said that she wanted to join the seminar. Edward said that one needed an introduction from one of the members to join. Usagi said that Luna had introduced her. Then, Edward said that an introduction from a cat wasn't good enough. Lady Rose came out and laughed. She said that it was all right. But she said that there was one condition. Then Usagi said, "The tea ceremony, arranging flowers, cooking, sewing, cleaning, wearing kimono, and also studying.. I'm bad at all of them."

Lady Rose laughed. Then, Edward brought a Frisbee. Lady Rose said that one had to be good at throwing the Frisbee to join. Usagi was happy and took the Frisbee. She threw it around, saying that she was very good at it. Then, Lady Rose said that Usagi can join.

The other girls were talking about Usagi who had joined the princess seminar. Minako wondered why Usagi couldn't just stay as she was. Artemis said that Usagi had to become like a real princess, otherwise she wouldn't be able to use the power of the Silver Crystal. Then, Ami suggested that they join Usagi. They all quickly agreed. Usagi was with the other girls outside throwing the Frisbee. Everyone was throwing it very lightly like an elegant girl. But Usagi threw it very fast, scaring the girl she was playing catch with.

Lady Rose and Kunzite were on the second floor looking at the girls. Kunzite said that Sailor Moon used the Moon Tiara Action technique that was very similar to throwing a frisbee. Kunzite said that Sailor Moon would come and would surely fail the princess course. During the lunch training, Usagi slurped her soup. Edward told Usagi to drink it quietly. Usagi tried again but slurped it again. During the seminar, Usagi almost fell asleep. She thought it was just as bad as school. Lady Rose came and asked Usagi how she would offer coffee. Usagi tried to come up with some polite words, but all of the other girls laughed as she made a fool of herself.

That night, there was a dance lesson. It was the last lesson in the princess seminar. Usagi was dancing with a guy and stepped on his foot. Then, Usagi tripped over her dress. Rei, Ami, Makoto, and Minako were there too. Ami and Makoto were dancing very gracefully. But Rei and Minako were bad at dancing. Rei, Minako, and Usagi stepped on their partner's feet. All of the girls passed the princess seminar except for those three.

The girls who passed were escorted to another room. There were a lot of figures for girls in the room. The figures looked very real. Then, Lady Rose appeared and turned into a youma. The youma sprayed wax on the girls and turned them all into wax figures, including Ami and Makoto.

Usagi, Rei, and Minako noticed something wrong in the other room. Then, the youma appeared. The youma said that one of them had to be Sailor Moon. She said that Sailor Moon would not be able to pass the princess seminar because she was very clumsy. Rei and Minako agreed, but Usagi was very disappointed. Then, the youma tried to spray the wax on them. But they dodged it. Luna and Artemis came and jumped on the youma. While the youma's face was covered by the cats, the girls transformed.

Sailor Moon, Sailor Mars, Sailor Venus fought against the youma. But Fire Soul and Crescent Beam didn't work against the wax. The youma went toward the Sailor Senshi. Then Endymion's black rose came flying by. Endymion appeared and said that he would let the Sailor Senshi live if he got the Silver Crystal. The youma said that that was not Kunzite's plan, but Endymion asked Sailor Moon for the Silver Crystal.

Then, Kunzite appeared and argued with Endymion. Kunzite wanted to kill Sailor Moon, but Endymion just wanted the Silver Crystal. The youma didn't know which one to listen to. Sailor Moon went to the youma with some coffee and said (incorrectly), "You must be tired. Here's some coffee." Sailor Moon caught the youma off guard and turned her back into Lady Rose with her Moon Healing Escalation. Sailor Moon tried to use her healing to fix Endymion. But Endymion escaped, saying he would come back later for the Silver Crystal. Then all of the wax girls in the room returned to normal.

The next day, Usagi was late for school again. She met Luna and said that she would try to be her type of princess. Usagi had a piece of toast in her mouth, which fell out when she was running and bit too hard.
