Rei's Grandfather is wondering why girls are not coming to the Hikawa Shrine. Rei points out an article in a magazine that warns of a perverted old man who lives there. Rei's Grandfather gets flustered, and states that he should retire to let Rei handle the Shrine duties.

Luna sees Usagi sitting at the table, believing that she is studying. She soon discovers that Usagi is sleeping. Usagi wakes up when Chibiusa shows up, reaching around her body for the Silver Crystal. Usagi picks up Chibiusa and begins to spank her. She then realizes that she is supposed to be at the Hikawa Shrine, helping out Rei.

At the Hikawa Shrine, Usagi and her friends are wearing temple robes. Rei states to her friends that Grandpa has started a strange new job called "Project Esthe". Rei, Usagi and Chibiusa decide to spy on Grandpa and Yuuichirou, who are working out. Rei begins to argue with Grandpa, alleging that his motivation for starting Project Esthe was to attract young girls to the Shrine.

In the meantime, Rubeus sends Koan out on an assignment. A crystal point has been discovered, this one being in the building where Rei's grandfather is holding Project Esthe.

Rei's grandfather is having trouble attracting girls to participate in his new project, due to his reputation as a pervert. Chibiusa then approaches him, asking to join so she can become strong and spank Usagi in return. Yuuichirou soon arrives with his recruits, all young girls. Grandpa becomes very excited at the sight of the beautiful young women that Yuuichirou has grouped together. Later that night Koan arrives and fills the building with Dark Power.

The next day Usagi and Rei decide to watch Project Esthe. There, women in tight spandex clothing cheer Grandpa and Yuuichirou on as they enter the building. Koan approaches Grandpa about a job as an assistant, with a Droid disguised as a girl. The disguised Droid picks out one of the contestants and begins to throw her around the ring. Rei feels an evil force, then Chibiusa shows up, wearing a cute looking outfit. After watching the disguised Droid beat up the contestant, Chibiusa becomes scared and runs away.

In the meantime, Koan is trying to impress Rei's grandfather, much to the chagrin of Yuuichirou. Rei attempts to step in to Yuuichirou's defense. Koan gives Rei's Grandfather the choice between Yuuichirou or her as the coach. Grandpa decides on Koan, and Yuuichirou walks away dejected.

The Dark Power begins to spread and everyone begins to fight. One of the girls attacks Rei’s Grandfather, but he dodges the attack and knocks all the girls out. Koan's assistant changes into the Droid Dumble and begins to attack Rei's Grandfather. Rei jumps in to the ring to defend him, getting injured in the process. Dumble then tries to kick Rei's Grandfather, but Rei intervenes again, getting kicked in the back repeatedly. Usagi soon arrives and transforms into Sailor Moon.

As Dumble begins to attack Sailor Moon, Tuxedo Mask appears. He attacks Dumble with a kick, then Sailor Moon uses the Moon Princess Halation to finish Dumble off. Koan gets upset, and she begins to attack Sailor Moon. In the meantime, Rei vows to avenge her Grandpa's injuries, so she transforms into Sailor Mars. As Koan is about to attack Sailor Moon, Sailor Mars arrives to push Sailor Moon out of harm's way. A battle ensues between Sailor Mars and Koan. At first, Koan resists Sailor Mars attack. Sailor Moon tries to intervene, but Tuxedo Mask holds her back. Sailor Mars then develops her Burning Mandala attack to blast Koan, setting her outfit on fire in the process. Koan disappears, trying to stop her clothes from burning.

Sailor Moon suggests that she should join Project Esthe to become an elegant woman. Tuxedo Mask sees the image of Princess Serenity crumbling in ruins, so he walks away coldly. Sailor Mars comforts Sailor Moon, stating that Tuxedo Mask still cares for her.

The next day, Rei's Grandpa starts a new program called Project Jazz Dance. Usagi and Rei watch as her Grandfather, Yuuichirou and Chibiusa dance inside the wrestling ring.
