As Usagi walks home from school, she passes a pizza parlor and realizes that she's hungry. She hurries home and calls to her mother asking where the snacks are, but Luna tells her that her mother has gone grocery shopping. She goes into the living room to find Chibi Chibi holding a strange doll and eating snacks. Usagi wonders where she got the food and watches her plaintively. Chibi Chibi offers to share, much to Usagi's delight.
When Ikuko gets home, she is greeted by Usagi, who begs for snacks. Ikuko admits that she forgot some, and Usagi declares that she is being unfair, because she gave Chibi Chibi so much to eat. Confused, Ikuko says that she didn't give Chibi Chibi any snacks, and when Usagi goes to show her, Chibi Chibi and her snacks have vanished.
In her room, Usagi wonders about how Chibi Chibi sometimes goes off by herself. She and Luna discuss how they don't really know anything about her, and wonder if she might be Chibiusa's daughter or little sister. Usagi starts to whine again about how hungry she is, and Chibi Chibi reappears, still holding her doll. When Usagi asks where she'd been, Chibi Chibi hands her some candy.
When Chibi Chibi leaves the house again, Usagi and Luna follow her. Usagi declares that there must be a world of sweets somewhere. Luna just bows her head in despair, wondering how a high school student could believe that. They lose sight of Chibi Chibi and keep walking in hope of finding her, and Usagi bumps into Rei and Makoto. They notice Chibi Chibi walking on top of a wall, and they become concerned for her safety - but as she slips off the wall she opens her umbrella and floats down safely.
The girls continue following her and along the way encounter Artemis, Minako, and Ami, who join in. They spot Chibi Chibi crossing a busy street, and despite heavy traffic she gets across unscathed. She then walks by a large dog, which greets her in a friendly manner, but when the girls try to follow the dog chases them up a pole. The Three Lights arrive and wonder what they're doing up there.
Chibi Chibi wanders along, greeted by various people that she passes. She finds some money on the ground and promptly turns it in to the police. Rei and Minako think that she's a lot like Chibiusa, making them wonder if she was Chibiusa's daughter (to the confusion of Seiya, who thought she was Usagi's little sister). Chibi Chibi arrives at a large mansion and enters the front gate; as the others follow after her, Taiki notices that the name on the gate says "Kiriyama".
Inside the gates, the mansion is surrounded by many expensive objects and there are even more inside. They hear Chibi Chibi's voice and follow it to an open window. They see her inside with an older gentleman, and Yaten realizes that her doll is a very expensive antique doll. Other items in the room, including the tea cup Chibi Chibi is holding, are also very rare and expensive. The older gentleman turns around and the Three Lights recognize him as Jotaro Kiriyama, the head of the Kiriyama Group and a sponsor for their next concert.
Chibi Chibi drops the cup she was holding and Usagi cries out, wondering who's going to pay for it, and Kiriyama notices their presence. He invites them inside but doesn't recognize the Three Lights, disappointing Yaten (who thought they were more famous than that). Chibi Chibi breaks another cup, upsetting Usagi, but Kiriyama tells her not to worry about it. He says that she and Chibi Chibi have a strong resemblance, almost identical.
The butler arrives and tells Kiriyama that he has a guest; he goes to leave, but pauses and invites them to take some treats with them when they go. Usagi is pleased to discover that this really is where Chibi Chibi was getting her sweets. As they leave, everyone asks Usagi what they were doing there; she explains her theory about the world of sweets, which everyone greets as completely ridiculous. They are about to head home when Usagi notices that Chibi Chibi has vanished again. She goes back to look for her, but hears a cry and runs toward it. Sailor Lead Crow and Sailor Aluminum Seiren confront Kiriyama and take his Star Seed, but it turns out to be a blank.
Just then, Eternal Sailor Moon appears and gives her intro speech, whereupon Kiriyama transforms into Sailor Antique and Crow and Seiren leave. Sailor Antique begins throwing expensive items around, so Sailor Moon begins diving around catching them before they break. Chibi Chibi joins in and throws her doll. Sailor Moon catches the doll, but misses a vase, which shatters, infuriating Sailor Antique. Sailor Moon retorts that the price of the antique isn't important, but rather the hearts of the people who own them.
Sailor Antique summons a horse with which to attack, but Sailor Star Healer uses Star Sensitive Inferno and knocks him back (breaking a chandelier in the process). At the prompting of Sailor Star Maker and Sailor Star Fighter, Sailor Moon uses Starlight Honeymoon Therapy Kiss to turn the Phage back to normal. Sailor Star Healer mourns the broken chandelier, and Sailor Star Maker replies that everything breaks down someday. Sailor Moon congratulates Chibi Chibi for keeping the doll safe, and in reply the girl drops the doll and it shatters.
As Usagi and Chibi Chibi walk home, Usagi wonders if the two of them really are related.
