“The Last Sailor Senshi! Sailor Venus Appears” is the 33rd episode of season one of Sailor Moon, and the 33rd of the overall series. It first aired in Japan on November 21, 1992. The DiC English dub title for this episode is "Sailor V Makes the Scene", and the episode first aired in North America on October 19, 1995.
Zoisite disguises himself as Sailor Moon in order to lure Tuxedo Mask and the Senshi out into the open. The Dark Kingdom injures Tuxedo Mask's identity, but they are foiled by the appearance of Sailor Venus.
Queen Beryl was watching the scene where Nephrite died. Queen Beryl is very upset. Zoisite says that Tuxedo Mask has always appeared to save the Sailor Senshi. Zoisite wants to draw him out. Zoisite wants to get the two Rainbow Crystals that Tuxedo Mask had. Queen Beryl says that it is his last chance. Then Kunzite comes and says that he would get Tuxedo Mask apart from the Sailor Senshi. Queen Beryl tells him to do it. Zoisite says that he would throw his life away for Kunzite.
Later, a bank robber is holding up a bank with a gun. Then Sailor Moon comes and hits the bank robber. But it isn't the real Sailor Moon. This makes the news. Luna sees it and thinks it was Usagi. She can't believe Usagi would do something that great.
Meanwhile Usagi and Makoto are out in the city having fun. Usagi is eating a lot of crepes. Two window washers are outside on a platform washing the windows of a large department store nearby. Mamoru is inside looking at some books and sees the ropes holding the window washers get cut by something. One of the window washers is holding on to the rope. But the rope gets cut and he falls. Then Sailor Moon (the fake one) comes and saves the guy. All of the people on the crowded street below saw it and think that it was great. But Mamoru can't believe that Sailor Moon would cut the rope on purpose. Usagi starts crying. She can't believe someone is using her name. Makoto says that they should contact Luna and the others. The fake Sailor Moon escapes.
Kunzite is waiting at a dock. He has set up the trap. Kunzite says that only Tuxedo Mask or the Sailor Senshi can follow the speed of his fake Sailor Moon.
All four girls are gathered at the dock. Rei says she saw the news about Sailor Moon catching the bank robber. She doesn't think that the real Sailor Moon could do it. Makoto said that she wishes the real Sailor Moon was that good. Usagi is disappointed. Then Ami says that they should find out what the fake Sailor Moon is up to. They don't know if it is a friend or foe. Usagi says, "How can she use my name without my permission! I'll have to get some money out of it!"
Then they hear the scream of a girl. They find the fake Sailor Moon hanging on a rope. They also see Kunzite. Usagi wants to save her. But Ami says that it might be a trap. Usagi says that she can't stand seeing Sailor Moon that way. So they transformed.
Kunzite is watching the lights of the city. He says, "What a waste of light. I want to see the darkness." Sailor Moon says, "I won't let you. That's a bad hobby to tie up girls like that." Then the Sailor Senshi appears in front of Kunzite. But Kunzite traps the Sailor Senshi in a large dome. Sailor Mars tries her Fire soul, but the energy is sucked by the barrier. Then Kunzite attacks them. The Sailor Senshi is scattered away. Sailor Jupiter tries her Supreme Thunder. Again the energy is sucked by the barrier. Then Kunzite says, "Is that the strength of the Sailor Senshi?" Kunzite makes the dome smaller and smaller, trapping the Sailor Senshi closer together.
Tuxedo Mask arrives at the dock. He thinks it is a trap. But he spots the fake Sailor Moon tied up and saves her. When he carries the fake Sailor Moon into a nearby building, Sailor Moon stabs Tuxedo Mask in the back. Then Zoisite takes off the Sailor Moon costume. Zoisite attacks, but Tuxedo Mask runs away. Since his shoulder is injured, Tuxedo Mask tries to hide.
The barrier surrounding the Sailor Senshi is very small. Sailor Jupiter tries her Supreme Thunder again. It is no good again as the barrier sucks the energy. Kunzite says that it is impossible for them to break the barrier.
Zoisite goes around trying to draw out Tuxedo Mask. When Tuxedo Mask comes running out of hiding, Zoisite attacks. Tuxedo Mask blocks Zoisite's sword, but Tuxedo Mask's mask comes off. Queen Beryl sees Tuxedo Mask's real face, and is surprised as she recognizes him. Zoisite is going to finish off Tuxedo Mask. Then a girl's voice says, "Crescent Beam!" and something blasts Zoisite's hand. Zoisite gets mad as Tuxedo Mask escapes.
Zoisite goes to Kunzite. Kunzite is disappointed in Zoisite when Zoisite tells him that Tuxedo Mask has gotten away. Kunzite has the Sailor Senshi in the dome, and the Sailor Senshi can't breathe any more. Zoisite calls out for Tuxedo Mask. "If you want to save them, bring the Rainbow Crystals and come out." Then Sailor Moon yells out for Tuxedo Mask to not come out. But Tuxedo Mask comes out. Zoisite says to Tuxedo Mask and the Sailor Senshi, "There's no hope. You should give up now." But a girl's voice says, "No matter how hard it is, you shouldn't give up." Then Sailor Venus appears. It is Sailor V, but she takes off the mask and is revealed to be Sailor Venus. Sailor Venus uses her Crescent Beam attack and blasts Kunzite and Zoisite's hands. Then the barrier breaks.
Sailor Moon gets out and looks at Sailor Venus. She asks, "Sailor V. You're Sailor V-chan right?" Then a white cat comes out and says, "Sailor V is Sailor Venus." Luna recognizes the cat as Artemis. Zoisite is going to fight them and tells Kunzite to go. But Queen Beryl appears and tells them both to retreat. Sailor Moon looks for Tuxedo Mask, but he is gone.
Later Artemis says, "The five Sailor Senshi and two cats have gathered. Everything is ready." Sailor Moon asks Sailor Venus, "Are you the Princess?" Sailor Venus just smiles at her.
Changes From the Manga
- When Minako is introduced in the manga, she is still under the identity of Sailor V and not Sailor Venus.
- Sailor Venus kills Zoisite as soon as she appears.
- Zoisite never disguised himself as Sailor Moon in the anime, although he did disguise himself as a female appearing on a television newcast.
- The DiC dub changes Zoisite's plan to be both Zoisite and Kunzite's plan, and changes it from a plan to exclusively lure out Tuxedo Kamen to one where Sailor Moon and the others will be trapped and ransomed for the two Rainbow Crystals Tuxedo Kamen has. It also removes Zoisite's line about being willing to die for Kunzite.
- In the scene where Usagi first sees the fake Sailor Moon, Minako and Artemis can be seen in the crowd.
- This would be the last episode that would have Usagi introducing herself to the audience at the beginning of the episode.
- At least one American promo commercial for the show used one clip of footage of the fake Sailor Moon (Zoisite in disguise) from this episode.
