Punishment Awaits: The House of Fortune is the Monster Mansion is the 2nd episode of the 1st season of Sailor Moon anime and the 2nd episode overall. It aired in Japan on March 14, 1992. This episode was never dubbed by DiC (see trivia for more), but Viz Media did dub the episode.


A new house of fortune opens up in the Juban District and quickly gains popularity for its accurate predictions. But soon, the customers who had their fortunes read begin to act violently including Gurio Umino, a boy who has a crush on Usagi. Suspecting that this is the work of a monster, Usagi and Luna decide to investigate the situation.


Umino has a crush on Usagi, and accidentally gets her in trouble. He goes to a new fortune teller to find out what he should do to win Usagi's heart. The new fortune teller is actually the youma Balm in disguise. She brainwashes him.

Later, At the Game Center Crown, Usagi was (once again) Playing the Sailor V Game and fails. Then Motoki Shows up to give Usagi a little trick on how to beat enemies. A few Minutes Later, Usagi Leaves. Then She sees the fortune teller again and thinks of something. To Decide, She Kicks her shoe which accidentally hits Mamoru and the head. Mamoru Scolds Usagi and tells her that if she does that again, She will no longer have a boyfriend of any kind. This Infuriates Usagi, who puts her shoe back on and She and Luna Walk-Off.

The next day at school, Umino is Wearing a Different School Uniform and Naru tells him that He can't come to school dressed like that. Then he tries to kiss Usagi and flips up Ms. Haruna's skirt, revealing her light pink colored panties with a happy face, and she walks off crying and embarrassed. Naru and Usagi talk about Umino's behavior and realize that it started after he visited the fortune teller. Sailor Moon goes to the fortune teller's parlor and is attacked by lots of fainted boys under Balm's control. She forgets how to use Moon Tiara Action, but then she remembers and defeats Balm.

The next day while walking to school, Naru tells Umino about what he did yesterday. He feels very guilty and ashamed. Usagi comes up, and he goes to apologize to her, and Usagi tells him not to worry.

Changes from the Manga

Dub Changes

  • This was the 1st episode of the series to be completely cut from the English line up until Viz Media dubbed the episode. It was also the first episode to be cut from the Korean dub.
  • DiC skipped this episode possibly due to a possessed Umino's trouble-causing: flipping Miss Haruna's skirt, vandalizing a teacher's window, and forcing Usagi to kiss him.
  • The scene when Umino flipped Haruna Sakurada's skirt was cut out in the French and the Hungarian dubs.
