Punishment Awaits: the House of Fortune Is the Monster Mansion is the second episode of the first season of Sailor Moon, and the second episode overall. The episode first aired in Japan on March 14th, 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 violent, 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.

The next day at school, he tries to kiss Usagi, and flips up Ms Haruna's skirt, revealing her light pink coloured 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 parlour 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 first 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.

First Appearances


  • This is the first filler episode, as none of the events in this episode occurred in the manga.
  • This was the first of six episodes that were completely cut from the DiC English dub, but is included in the Viz Media English dub.
  • The Tarot card Balm used to control Umino and her other victims was card XV, The Devil.
