Cliff Notes for Sailormoon Dark

This page contains synopsises of the episodes of SM Dark and art that WILL spoil the story. Looking at ANYTHING on this page will spoil some major plot points for you. But if you're anything like me, you often like to skip to the back of a new book and read the last page so you know how it turns out. ;) Are you one of those people? Then read and look! If you would rather not have any of the story spoiled for you, skip this page entirely!!



Episode Summaries

The following summaries were written by Laurel.

Episode One: University Orientation I. The Broken Mirror!
Years have passed since the end of "Sailor Stars." Usagi is now 18 and ready to enter a university called Mirai Mugen, which was built on the site of the old Mugen high school. While she is sleeping the night before orientation, several figures emerge from her mirror, including a black-haired Usagi! The senshi head off to their new college the next morning; it is obvious they have all changed in some unexplainable ways. The characters Nori, Ban, and Kitaeru are introduced, as are the exchange students Tara and Ursula. Before lunch, Rei sees a disturbing vision of herself, and so separates from the group to try to figure it out. Kitaeru, being the forger of all of the senshi's weapons, senses their presence in the building, and transforms into Sailorvulcan. Ban tranforms into Soldierhyperion, and Nori into Sailorsun. Rei sees the actual physical embodiment of her Dark self. She gives chase.

Episode Two: University Orientation II. Unknown Senshi Save the Day.
While the senshi are in the courtyard eating their lunch, they are suddenly attacked by a little seamonster. Another new senshi, Sailortriton, shows up to fight the creature. Rei meets the evil Sailormars on the roof of the building and transforms. Two Elemental senshi join the fight to help Darkmars overpower good Mars. Meanwhile, in the courtyard, Sun, Vulcan, and Hyperion help Triton beat up the seamonster, which doesn't seem to please Triton. The monster winds up getting hurt and runs away. Vulcan tells the others that she is the one who made the Talismans, which sometimes allows her to feel when other senshi are in distress. At that moment, she feels what is happening to Rei, alerting the others to her plight.

Episode Three: University Orientation III. An Opening Born of Fire.
Darkmars has nearly killed Rei when several more senshi show up to try to save her, Sailorcallisto (Ursula), Sailorganymede (Tara), and Sailorcharon (Ruki). Usagi comes upon the scene. The sight of the gravely injured Rei transforms her into Sailorcosmos by unknown means. She uses her new powers to fry Darkmars and the two Elementals. Rei dies in Usagi's arms. Another new senshi pops in, Sailorodin, to give them a mysterious book, and to tell them to take Rei to the Witches because they will look after her body and her Soul Shield. Off to the side, Triton hides, holding the burned seamonster in her arms. They discuss how their distraction worked in helping to get Sailormars killed.

Episode Four: The Itsubun Gives Clues. We're Off to the Witch!
One of the Elementals becomes Sailorhelium, and reveals that she had been brainwashed into killing Sailormars. She encases Rei's body in cryogenic crystals. They all decide to take Rei back to Usagi's house to ask Luna if she knows anything about Valhalla and the Witches. Charon takes off with the weak Helium in tow. Back at the library, Nori is in trouble for returning from lunch late. Vivian (Triton) takes the opportunity to butter her up by giving Nori a perfect excuse for her tardiness. Nori is grateful. Meanwhile, the senshi begin to read about the moon kingdom legend involving Sailorgalaxia and other senshi like her. The legend reveals it was their battle with Galaxia that split them all into Light and Dark halves. But how did Usagi get split? They figure out that Valhalla is the commune on Witch Hill, and set out to go there. Vivian leaves the library to meet up with the raven-haired Usagi, Tsukino-sama. They transform and go to the Gates of Time. They are currently being guarded by Pluto's future daughter, Sailormiraipluto. Somehow they get past her to 30th century Crystal Tokyo, where they go to the temple of an adult Elios, in Elysion. As he greets them, Sailordarkcosmos bitchslaps him and demands to know where his "pretty girl" is.

Episode Five: The Witches of Valhalla Charm the Present. Sailordarkcosmos Terrorizes the Future!
The senshi go to Valhalla to meet the Witches. In a nearby forest, Sailorcharon takes Heri (Helium) into a cave that leads down into the Underworld. There, they are threatened by five demons. Elios and Sailorelysion, his sister, battle Sailordarkcosmos, and are hurt badly. Chibiusa as the new Eternalsailormoon and her daughter, Sailormiraimoon, enter the scene, but when Chibiusa sees the Cosmos fuku, she knows she is beaten before the battle begins. Darkcosmos gravely injures her and steals her Soul Shield. Back in the present time, the Witches show the senshi the Tree of Life. A rather crazy, evil senshi breaks into the greenhouse and challenges everyone to a fight.

The following episode summaries were written by reader Kagome. (I tweaked them just a little. ^_^)
