Kengo Ibuki is in his cabin on a windy night, inspecting his various pottery creations. Disappointed in their quality, he begins furiously smashing them, but Sailor Aluminum Seiren interrupts him to take his Star Seed.

Rei, Minako, Ami, Makoto, Usagi, and Chibi Chibi are taking the train to the lake to go camping. They have great hopes of finding romance and love on the trip (despite Usagi having to baby-sit). It turns out that the site they chose is near the home of Rei's cousin, a temperamental ceramic artist who destroys any of his creations that is not absolutely perfect; Rei shows the others a ceramic bird pendant that he made and she rescued from one of his rampages when she was younger.

When the girls arrive at the lake, they're warned to be careful, because lately someone has been going around destroying campsites.

Elsewhere near the lake, the Three Lights are busy making a sentai-style movie where they, as Chou Blue (Taiki), Chou Red (Seiya), and Chou Yellow (Yaten), save people from an evil undead lake monster with a chainsaw. During a break in filming, the three decide that since it is so hot, they should take a swim in the lake to cool off.

Rei goes to visit her cousin, but when she arrives at the cabin she finds it deserted and in complete disarray. She begins to feel concerned about Kengo.

In the meantime, Usagi, Minako, Makoto, Ami, and Chibi Chibi go swimming in the lake. While Usagi and Minako engage in a furious water fight, Ami spots shadowy figures approaching them under the water. As it turns out, though, it is just the Three Lights. Seiya tells the girls about the movie that they are making, with its scary lake monster, and the girls mention there's something destroying camps around this lake, too. In an attempt to scare Usagi, Seiya suggests that there could very well be an actual monster there.

Seiya, Taiki, and Yaten get called back to filming, and Usagi and Chibi Chibi go to gather firewood. While they are out in the forest, Usagi, already jumpy from the stories earlier, is startled when Rei suddenly appears. Rei tells Usagi that her cousin wasn't there, even though she had told him she was coming.

The Three Lights finish filming for the day, and Seiya sneaks into the props truck and takes the monster costume. Taiki and Yaten tell him he will get in trouble if he gets caught, but he insists that he has an idea.

As the girls set up camp and prepare dinner, Taiki and Yaten come running in, saying that they saw a monster destroying someone's camp. Rei wonders aloud if her cousin was attacked by the same person destroying the camps, while Taiki and Yaten exchange knowing winks. As they hear screams from other campers, Sailor Artist appears and begins wrecking their campsite with a large hammer. The girls run away, screaming.

Taiki and Yaten watch the goings-on, commenting on how Seiya is getting carried away, and wondering why he has the hammer when he had a chainsaw earlier. Right about then Seiya finally appears wearing the lake-monster costume. When the other two chide him for taking so long and ask if he has done enough yet, he only gets confused and says he has yet to do anything. When he notices the wrecked campground, they suddenly realize that the other monster was real.

The girls run away from the Phage, but Rei trips and falls, narrowly missing a blow from his hammer and dropping her bird pendant on the ground. Sailor Artist seems distracted by the pendant, and Usagi and Rei take advantage of that to transform into Sailor Moon and Sailor Mars. The Phage begins to fight them by hurling ceramic pots formed out of his stomach, then picks up Rei's pendant. Sailor Mars realizes that the monster is Kengo; when she says his name he stops and clutches at his head momentarily before attacking again.

Sailor Mars uses Mars Flame Sniper to stop the Phage from attacking, giving Sailor Moon the chance to heal him with Starlight Honeymoon Therapy Kiss, which turns him back into Kengo. Sailor Mars rushes up to catch him as he collapses and notices that he is still holding the bird pendant in his hand. The Sailor Starlights watch this from up in the trees and observe that the Sailor Senshi actually can fight when they need to.

Later, everyone gathers in Kengo's cleaned-up cabin. Minako attempts to throw a pot and fails miserably. Rei sadly observes that all of Kengo's works have been destroyed, but he says that it is all right; he was trying so hard that he had lost sight of what he was doing, and could use a fresh start.

Outside, Usagi makes fun of Seiya for getting scared and running away when the camp vandal appeared and says that his fans would never forgive him. While they talk, Chibi Chibi suddenly opens the door into him so that he falls over and takes Usagi to the ground with him. As everyone stares at them in their somewhat compromising position, Usagi screams that he is a pervert and throws him, despite his protestations that it was an accident.

Episode trivia[edit]

  • The monster in the movie wore bracelets that were similar in design to the Galactica Bracelets.
  • In the Portuguese dub, Kengo was referred as Rei's friend and not cousin.
