Infinity Arc

In the manga, Mimete first appears as idol Mimi Hanyu, a teen idol giving a concert to celebrate the opening of the Infinity Academy Memorial Dome, which only students are allowed to attended.

During the concert, she attempts to steal the souls of the Infinity Academy students using her song. Minako Aino, who snuck into the concert disguised as a student, realizes that Mimete is an enemy, and transforms to fight her.

Sailor Venus then calls the other Sailor Senshi. Mimete requests help from Kaolinite, and she sends several Daimons. The Senshi are about to be overwhelmed when Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune defeat Mimete and the rest of the Daimons.

Mimete is briefly resurrected by Kaolinite, along with the other witches, in Act 34. After being separated from the other Senshi, Sailor Venus hears a song, causing her a headache. She remembers that she has heard the song before. Walking into a room, she is overwhelmed with cheers, and Mimete welcomes her as her "special guest". Venus is given a microphone, and is wrapped up in wires. Mimete urges her to sing, reminding her that her dream is to be an idol. This causes Minako to question if she wants to continue being a Senshi.

In the end, Mimete and the rest of the Witches 5 are destroyed for good by Space Sword Blaster, Submarine Reflection, and Chronos Typhoon.
