Usagi has a day off and spends it looking at shop windows, being secretly followed by Seijuurou. She daydreams about going on a date, and Seijuurou is ready to fulfill her wish. Mamoru is in a bookstore where Natsumi finds him, and asks him out. Both couples happen to go to the same café. Seijuuro and Natsumi get angry with each other because none of them knew that the other one was dating. They leave their dates and return to their apartment, where they are shocked to see that the Makaiju is losing its leaves. Desperate to keep the tree alive, they decide to gather more energy.
Usagi and Luna see a sign advertising a Sailor Moon live action show, and Usagi is happy about her new fame. Umino and Naru are in the audience when the show begins. The show is interrupted by the Cardian Yamandakka who throws huge leaves at the audience to steal their energy. When Usagi and Luna appear, Yamandakka has vanished, and the entire audience lie unconscious.
Umino, Naru, Natsumi, and Seijuurou are all absent from school the next day. Usagi brings Ami and Makoto with her to visit the Ginga siblings. Usagi says that this time, it will be a while before Umino and Naru recover, as so much of their energy was stolen. When they ring the bell to the apartment, the door is opened by Seijuurou and Natsumi, wearing similar clothes, so Makoto remarks that they look like lovers. Natsumi is not happy to see them, but Seijuurou invites them to come in.
Seijuurou is making coffee while the three Sailor Senshi sit and talk with Natsumi. While Usagi says they just wanted to see whether she was ill, Natsumi does not understand their concern and says it was impolite for them to come without an invitation. Makoto gets angry and is about to leave, when Usagi finds the automatic door to the Makaiju's dimension. She is about to open it when Seijuurou stops her, claiming that the room behind the door is too messy to be shown. Natsumi tells them to leave, and they do, despite Seijuurou's attempt to serve coffee for Usagi. Seijuurou tells Natsumi that for the first time is his life, he feels something warm and nice inside, and is surprised that Natsumi cannot feel it.
Usagi rises early the next morning, and goes to Natsumi's apartment to follow her to school. Seijuurou invites her in for cake, much to Natsumi's annoyance. Unwatched, Usagi opens the door to the Makaiju, and is attacked by the tree. Seijuurou pushes the button to close the door and save her. He convinces Usagi that he conducts a botanic experiment behind the door. Natsumi asks her to leave again, and as she waves goodbye to Seijuurou, he feels warm again.
The Makaiju has sprouted a new bud. An theorizes that the sprout was formed with the energy the tree stole from Usagi, and suggests that they steal all of her energy. Ail summons Yamandakka and asks her to feed energy to the sprout, but this makes it wither and die, while the tree emits a strange sound. An believes that the tree is speaking to them. Ail doubts this, and tells what he thinks the Makaiju is: A tree, handed to them from their ancestors, that stores and distills the energy they consume.
Usagi, Ami, and Makoto sit and talk in their schoolyard. Makoto picks a twig out of Usagi's hair, and they all get scared when it moves. The Sailor Senshi, Luna, and Artemis meet at Hikawa Shrine to examine the twig. When Luna touches the twig, it wraps itself around her paw to steal her energy, so Luna removes it quickly. She tells the Senshi that it comes from a Makaiju, a cosmic energy-stealing tree. They realize that Natsumi and Seijuurou might be Ail and An, though Usagi does not believe it.
Usagi goes to check out the Gingas for herself, but stops outside their apartment when Luna warns her. Mamoru appears, holding a bouquet of flowers. He ignores Usagi's warnings about the Makaiju, and goes up to the apartment to give the flowers to Natsumi. She is surprised as she feels warm inside, but her good mood vanishes when Usagi appears in the doorway. The Gingas invite them both in. While they are having cake, Natsumi asks Seijuurou to show Mamoru the view from the balcony, so she can be alone with Usagi. She pushes Usagi into the Makaiju's room and closes the door behind her. Yamandakka attacks Usagi, but the tree speaks, and says it has had enough.
Natsumi, Seijuurou, and Mamoru are shocked as the Makaiju begins moving, which shakes the entire building. The Makaiju breaks the door and captures Usagi and Yamandakka with its roots, making Yamandakka fall unconscious. The four other Senshi arrive to find the building covered in branches and roots, and they all transform. Sailor Jupiter uses Supreme Thunder against the Makaiju, but it has no effect. They listen with fright as Usagi screams.
