Usagi, Ami, Rei, Makoto, and Minako are walking down the street together, talking about Luna has been missing for a week. As they pass by a store window they see Yaten on the television and realize that he's holding Luna.

Once back at school they decide to speak to Yaten about Luna. A girl comes up to them and gives Usagi a love letter and, after some misunderstanding, asks her to give it to Yaten. When they find Yaten, he is reading a book and does not want to be interrupted, but Usagi hands over the letter anyway. Yaten throws it away without reading it, and Usagi becomes very upset.

Later, the girls have gathered at the Hikawa Shrine, and Artemis is upset because he misses Luna. Luna suddenly arrives and says that she was with Yaten all this time, and explains what had happened. The Three Lights were going to be on a television show about pets, and Yaten had bought a chameleon. It escaped, however, and as Seiya and Taiki helped him look for it they spotted Luna and decided she should be their pet for the show. Luna was not interested at first, but when Yaten smiled at her she changed her mind.

At Ginga TV Yaten is preparing to leave when the idol Noriko Okamachi arrives and invites him to her home. Yaten coldly turns her down, and Noriko cries and leaves.

Later, as the Three Lights and Luna are riding in the car Taiki and Seiya chide Yaten for being so unfriendly to Noriko as well as to his fans, as he throws out every love letter he receives without reading it. Yaten replies that he can't understand how people of this world could love them, because they don't know anything about the three of them. He adds that he is only thinking about one person, which puzzles Luna.

Yaten takes Luna to a pet shop to be groomed, as Usagi and her friends spy on them. Noriko also arrives with her cat and after sweetly insulting Luna, apologizes for asking him over the other day because she didn't realize that he was a homosexual. Luna becomes angry and scratches Noriko, but before Noriko can retaliate Chuuko Nezu suddenly arrives. Nezu announces that she is a reporter and wants to speak with Noriko and Yaten, but Yaten just walks away. Nezu transforms into Sailor Iron Mouse and attacks Noriko.

Yaten and Luna see Noriko's Star Seed being removed, but Yaten doesn't interfere; he is upset because no matter what they do, it doesn't matter if they can't find their Princess. Luna, however, charges into the room and attacks Sailor Iron Mouse, but is blasted through a glass window for her efforts. Yaten is surprised at Luna's actions, and rushes over to check on her.

In the meantime Noriko's Star Seed turns black, and Sailor Iron Mouse is about to leave when the Inner Senshi appear. She ignores their speeches, however, and leaves the Senshi with the newly-transformed Phage Sailor Ojou.

Elsewhere in the shop, Yaten cradles an unconscious Luna before finally making a decision. He sets her down and, as Artemis arrives, tells him to watch over her. Yaten then runs back toward the battle and transforms into Sailor Star Healer. She uses Star Sensitive Inferno against Sailor Ojou, knocking the Phage down, and tells the Senshi she is helping them only for Luna's sake. Sailor Moon uses Starlight Honeymoon Therapy Kiss and turns Noriko back to normal, after which Sailor Star Healer disappears.

Later, at school, Yaten opens his shoe locker and a pile of love letters falls out. Usagi watches and complains that he's just going to throw them out again, and Luna says it's all right because he already has someone that he loves. Yaten gathers up the letters and sees the two of them, and invites Luna to come see him again any time. As he walks off with the letters, Usagi is startled by his change in attitude, and Luna hopes that Yaten finds "her" soon.

Episode trivia[edit]

  • This episode featured the only time a character in the anime had a nosebleed (a usual anime sign of perverted thoughts), as Minako developed one when thinking about Luna being with Yaten.
