It is nighttime in Tokyo, and Kou Yaten and Kou Taiki stand atop a tall building, opposite Michiru Kaiou, Haruka Tenou, and Setsuna Meiou. Yaten demands to know why they were called there, and the three transform into Sailor Neptune, Sailor Uranus, and Sailor Pluto. Yaten and Taiki are unimpressed, and transform into Sailor Star Healer and Sailor Star Maker. The two groups face off, with the Outer Senshi declaring their mission to protect the Solar System from outsiders and the Starlights retorting that they have no problem with that, and are willing to take advantage of the Solar System Senshi to keep Sailor Galaxia distracted. Before the two groups can fight, however, an injured Kou Seiya stops them, and promises he won't go see Sailor Moon anymore.
At the high school, the Three Lights' desks are empty. As Usagi looks at Seiya's desk, she remembers how he saved her from Sailor Tin Nyanko's ambush and worries about him. Her friends notice and are concerned, but when they try to distract Usagi after school she hardly seems to notice - until Minako arrives and gives Usagi a phone number for a place where the Three Lights are rehearsing, and encourages her to call and find out Seiya's condition. When Usagi calls the number, she speaks to Taiki, who shrugs off her concern. Yaten takes the phone and yells at Usagi that it is her fault Seiya was injured in the first place, and it is too late to apologize. Seiya overhears and looks upset, but does not say anything.
Usagi, once again depressed, meets with her friends at the Hikawa Shrine. Haruka, Michiru, and Setsuna arrive and tell her that Seiya agreed not to meet with her anymore. Usagi gets upset with them for deciding everything for her, but after her outburst quickly apologizes. She believes in the Starlights, but the Outer Senshi insist that since their enemies are also Sailor Senshi, they have to be careful who to trust. Usagi insists that if they just talk, they can understand each other; she runs off in tears, pursued by Luna.
At Ginga TV, Akane Karasuma tells Nyanko Suzu not to try to help her again, and the two of them bicker briefly before Nyanko leaves. Akane fumes, declaring that she will find the true Star Seed. She spots a magazine sitting on Nyanko's desk with a story about an amusement park and picks it up, musing that Sailor Aluminum Seiren loved amusement parks. She flips through the pages and, upon finding a picture of Takeo Shiro, decides that he will be her next target.
Luna finds Usagi in her room, crying, and tries to comfort her while gently reminding her about her duty as a Sailor Senshi. Usagi agrees that she is not going to see Seiya again, but then the phone rings and Seiya is on the line. He tells her to come to their live performance that night and listen to his song, then hangs up. Realizing who was on the phone, Luna pauses, then encourages Usagi to go. Seiya rejoins the group on stage, but collapses. Though the others are worried and ask if they should cancel the show that night, Seiya insists he will be fine.
At the amusement park, Usagi finds that the tickets for the show are all sold out. As she turns away from the booth, though, she spots the Ferris wheel nearby. When the show starts, Seiya looks over the audience and doesn't see her, then spots the shine of Usagi's brooch reflecting the light from one of the cars on the Ferris wheel. As he starts to sing, Usagi realizes that the song is different, and as she listens she senses Seiya's message.
Seiya tells her about how Galaxia will destroy all the planets in her effort to collect all the Star Seeds - and if she gets them all, she will control the entire galaxy. She came to the Starlights' planet and destroyed it, but their princess escaped and made it to Earth, and the Starlights followed. After the song is over, Seiya thinks to himself that he hopes Usagi received his message, and then collapses on stage.
Takeo receives a call telling him about what happened at the concert and rushes out the door, but runs into Akane Karasuma. He tries to rush past her, but she reveals herself as Sailor Lead Crow and removes his Star Seed. It promptly turns black, though, and the frustrated Sailor Lead Crow disappears, leaving behind the Phage Sailor Amuse.
Backstage, Taiki and Yaten discover that Seiya has managed to leave while their backs were turned. He staggers through the park, determined to find Usagi, but once they find each other they hear screams as Sailor Amuse attacks park visitors. Seiya pulls out his Sailor Change Star but is too weak to transform; Usagi insists that she will take care of things and transforms into Sailor Moon. Sailor Amuse attacks by hurling exploding balloons at Sailor Moon and Seiya, and Sailor Moon finds it hard to protect her injured friend. The Outer Senshi arrive just in time, and Sailor Neptune uses Deep Submerge to knock away his attack. Sailor Moon thanks the three for saving them, but Sailor Uranus glares at Seiya and says they weren't there to save him. As Sailor Amuse prepares to attack again, Sailor Uranus uses Space Sword Blaster and instead makes the Phage's attack blow up in his face. As he is distracted, it gives Sailor Moon the chance to use Silver Moon Crystal Power Kiss to heal him.
After the battle, the Three Lights face off against Haruka, Michiru, Setsuna, and Usagi. They argue again and Usagi takes the blame, saying that she was the one who came to see Seiya. When the Three Lights turn to go, Seiya pauses briefly and thanks Usagi for coming; she tries to run after him, but is restrained by Haruka and instead just watches sadly as the three of them leave.
- The animation for Space Sword Blaster in this episode was very similar to the usual stock footage for World Shaking; this episode was also the last time that attack appeared in the anime.
