Makoto is daydreaming about the Moonlight Knight. She discusses with Ami how he is like her senpai, then they watch Umino give Naru a lunch he made for her. Ami tells Makoto that making lunch for your boyfriend is popular at the moment. They wait a little longer for Usagi so they can discuss the Moonlight Knight, but she does not turn up.
Usagi is running to school because she is late. Luna runs after her with her lunch bag, but trips and it flies through the air.
The teacher scolds Usagi for being late, forgetting her homework, and falling asleep in class, but lets her go eat her lunch (which Luna wasn't able to give her). Usagi watches Umino give Naru her lunch, but decides not to bother them to give her food. Then she has a bright idea to ask Makoto for lunch. She heads off, but Makoto arrives in her place after she leaves.
Makoto and Ami notice Seijuurou playing the flute, and go over to watch. They note that Seijuurou showed up around the same time as the Moonlight Knight and wonder if they might be the same person. After Seijuurou finishes playing, the girls surrounding him try to get him to eat their lunch, but he says that he does not eat lunch and leaves, followed by his fans. Makoto daydreams about him eating her lunch with her, but Ami brings her back to Earth. Makoto tells Ami she will investigate whether Seijuurou is the Moonlight Knight or not.
Seijuurou eventually avoids his fangirls by jumping atop a building. Makoto sees him up there after arriving after the other girls leave. Seijuurou wonders aloud why girls keep offering him lunch, and Makoto tells him it is because they like him.
Meanwhile, Ami calculates the chances of Seijuurou being the Moonlight Knight on her computer and gets 0.2%. Usagi appears behind Ami and cries because Ami had already eaten her lunch.
Makoto offers Seijuurou some of her lunch and tries to subtly ask if he is the Moonlight Knight, but he does not answer, as he is trying out the food she made. Natsumi watches from the shadows, jealous and angry. Makoto discusses eating lunch with her old senpai. Seijuro asks her why they offer lunch when they like someone; Makoto says that if it is for someone they like, they try to do something for them, and that sometimes they feel like they could die for them.
Natsumi comes up to them and gets into an argument with Makoto. Seijuurou starts choking on some of the food and the girls rush over to him. Natsumi and Makoto glare at each other, while beneath them Seijuurou changes to Ail and back while they do not notice.
Back at school, Miss Haruna scolds Usagi again before letting her go home. Usagi bumps into Ami, and then Luna arrives with her food, much to Usagi's delight.
Seijuurou tries to explain things to Natsumi, who is disgusted with him for eating human food. Makoto appears and offers to walk home with Seijuurou. Seijuurou refuses, but Natsumi gets angry and walks away from them. Makoto feels a little guilty, but wants to talk with Seijuurou more. They talk under a bridge, but Seijuurou does not seem to be listening. Makoto says she thinks Natsumi hates her, but Seijuurou denies it. Seijuurou asks Mako about the lunch and liking someone. Natsumi watches from the bushes, and gets really mad at them. She changes back into An.
While she is eating, Usagi asks about Makoto and Seijuurou "going out on a date", and Ami says that Makoto said she was investigating whether Seijuurou was Moonlight Knight. Usagi finishes her meal and runs off to find out if Makoto and Seijuurou are really dating.
Seijuurou and Makoto are still talking about food and love. Seijuurou argues that love is something you should take by force, but Makoto does not agree with him. Then An appears and blasts Makoto, and she falls to the ground. An steps on Makoto's lunch, and Makoto gasps. When An raises her hand to blast Mako again, Seijuurou tries to stand up to protect her, but An just blasts both of them.
Usagi, Ami, and Luna arrive; Luna tells Ami to get Makoto and orders Usagi to transform into Sailor Moon and fight.
Makoto gets angry about An destroying her lunch box, and An is just about to finish her off when Sailor Moon interrupts. Seijuurou becomes Ail, and suddenly Sailor Moon cannot see anything and everyone cannot move. Ail appears behind An and An tells him to not interfere, but then Ail kisses her on the cheek and she blushes. He tells her to pick a Cardian; she picks the Cardian Utonberino and Ail summons it with his flute. The Cardian then attacks Sailor Moon, but she dodges its attacks.
Makoto transforms into Sailor Jupiter and stands with Sailor Mercury to fight. Ail tells Utonberino to get the Sailor Senshi. It traps the three Senshi in individual ropes, then ties Sailor Moon and Sailor Mercury together. A white rose breaks through the rope holding Sailor Jupiter, allowing her to fight again. She then uses Supreme Thunder Dragon on the Cardian and weakens it.
Sailor Venus appears and uses Crescent Beam Shower, but Ail pushes An out of the way. Sailor Mars arrives and uses Fire Soul to free Sailor Mercury and Sailor Moon. Sailor Moon then uses Moon Princess Halation and destroys the Cardian, after which Ail and An disappear.
The Moonlight Knight congratulates the Sailor Senshi, and Jupiter takes the chance to ask him who he is; he simply replies that one day they will find out his identity and leaves. Sailor Jupiter realizes that he is not Seijuurou Ginga. She promises that she will bring Moonlight Knight her lunch next time.
At their apartment, Ail gives An some food he made as an expression of his love, but she is confused about what to do with it.
- This episode was the only one in which Supreme Thunder Dragon appeared.
- When the Moonlight Knight rescued Sailor Jupiter, he revealed that he knew she was a good cook and that An had ruined her lunch, implying that he knew her secret identity. None of the other characters present seemed to notice, however.
- During the scene in which Makoto and Ami were talking about the Moonlight Knight, one of the kids running past had a key chain that looked like Usagi.
