Chapter 3 Rei's and Minako's Girls School Battle? was the third story in the Sailor Moon Exam Battle manga mini-series. It focused on Rei and Minako during the high school exam study sessions, and gives a glimpse into their relationship.
Minako is jealous that Rei doesn't have to take exams at her school like the rest of the girls do. She decides that she wants to go and experience a day at T·A Academy for Girls and does so despite Rei's disagreement. Even disguised as a student, however, Minako is unable to fit in: she breaks a number of rules, is constantly chastised by the nuns, and even accidentally breaks a window with a volleyball, which then lands in a dirty well and causes her to get dirty. As a result, the students and faculty call her uncouth and rude and look down upon her. She also gets Rei in a great deal of trouble by association.
Frustrated by her lack of success at the school and the teasing, Minako yells at Rei and runs off. When Minako retrieves the volleyball from the well, she accidentally unseals the genius loci Ghost Cistern, who immediately posesses Rei. Rei goes on a rampage, and Minako transforms into Sailor Venus, saves the day by banishing the spirit with one of Rei's ofuda, and becomes the school's new hero. Rei, however, is less than pleased, and tells Minako that if the glares from the teachers prevent her from getting into high school it will be Minako's fault. Angry that Minako used Akuryo Taisan without permission, Rei also declares that since she, unlike Minako, has never farted during zazen, the two of them should never be compared.
- Several facts are revealed in this short:
- People still referred to Sailor Venus as Sailor V.
- T·A Academy for Girls had an exclusiveness similar to that of Mugen Academy - it was mostly for upper-class girls (and even in the Mixx version the girls referred to Minako as being a "trailer park" type) - and that the grading went up to junior college.
- Rei had never farted.
