Jadeite establishes a fortune telling house that turns its visitors, including the unsuspecting Umino, into Dark Kingdom minions.


Jadeite is summoned to Queen Beryl. He has been investigating a fortune teller, and claims to have another energy-gathering plan in motion.

The following morning, Usagi is once again late for school. Today, Umino seems to be paying a lot of attention to her. Umino later confesses to Naru that he wants to go on a date with Usagi. Trying and failing to supress her amusement, Naru advises Umino to consult a fortune teller, since a new fortune telling house has recently opened in the area.

Usagi meets her usual fortune teller on the way home, and finds that there are no customers. The old man points out the new fortune telling house located opposite, and says the competition is too great. Nevertheless, she asks for a palm reading. The old man tells her that somebody she sees every day likes her. Across the road, Umino enters the House of Fortune.

Pondering the identity of her admirer, Usagi goes to the Crown Game Center and sees Motoki, who she has a crush on. He shows her the new Sailor V game, giving her a treasured opportunity to get close to him. Luna interrupts them, and Usagi decides to go back to the old man and check if Motoki is her admirer. She finds that he has finished for the day, and considers going to the House of Fortune instead. To decide, she kicks her shoe over her shoulder. It hits the same boy she hit with her test paper. He berates her again and she storms off.

Inside the House of Fortune, Umino and the other customers are hypnotised with mind-controlling tarot cards that also drain their energy. Outside, Usagi meets her father, who is shopping for her mother. He asks abou Luna, and Usagi says she is her friend.

The following day at school, Naru tells Usagi about Umino's crush on her. Suddenly Umino comes in wearing a suit, and asks Usagi on a date. When Haruna objects to his behaviour, he flips up her skirt to her utter horror. Later, Umino and some other students become increasingly rebellious. Naru tells Usagi that some of them visited the House of Fortune. Usagi and Luna go to investigate, and Usagi transforms into Sailor Moon.

Inside, the Youma in charge of the house, Balm, instructs her hypnotised subjects to wreak havoc in the city. Sailor Moon bursts in, and the customers turn on her. Tuxedo Kamen briefly distracts the monster, freezing the customers, and tells Sailor Moon to keep fighting. The Youma attacks again, but Sailor Moon destroys her with Moon Tiara Action. The customers return to normal, although Umino is later horrified when he finds out what he did under hypnosis.
