Rini's Lovely Rhapsody
Jap.159 "Chibi Usa's Little Rhapsody of Love"
Rini is with Pegasus in her dream world. He tells her that the power of the Golden Crystal has the power to save Elysion and protect the Earth.
The two then fly up into the clouds. Pegasus then reveals that Rini has wings of her own. Rini looks back and sees that she now has giant white wings on her back. She lets go of Pegasus and flies besides him.
Rini tells Pegasus that she loves him and that she now knows why she was born.
The next day at Crown the girls and Darien talk about Rini. Serena says that she's heard her talking to someone at night. They all conclude that Rini has a boyfriend and that they should find out who it is.
Raye and Lita take Rini out for ice cream but are so obvious with their questions that Rini doesn't open up at all.
Amy and Mina then take Rini shopping and convince Rini to describe her boyfriend if she can't say his name. Rini gets excited and tells them that he has a long face and is as white as the snow. Mina begins joking with Amy about how weird he must look. Amy whispers for her to be quiet but Rini as obviously heard her and isn't impressed.
In the Dead Moon Circus, Queen Nehelenia looks at Helios' unconscious body and becomes frustrated of her inability to find the Golden Crystal which he protects. She summons Zirconia and commands him to double his efforts.
Zirconia confronts the Amazoness Quartet and sends Jun Jun off to check a new target.
Elsewhere in a rather expensive restaurant, Darien has taken Rini out for a big dinner. Serena and the others are spying on them from another table. As Rini begins to open up to Darien about who she likes the girls sneak closer and closer, hiding behind random objects until Rini and Darien are surrounded by a piano, statue and more. Rini becomes furious and yells at them.
Later on they watch as Rini looks sadly at a nearby pond. The girls see a man with a long face and white hair across the water and assume he's Rini's boyfriend. Before they can do anything though, Jun Jun arrives and removes his Dream Mirror. It isn't the Golden Dream Mirror that contains Pegasus though.
All the girls transform and confront Jun Jun who summons the Lemres, Baku Baku who takes the form of a giant koi. Jun Jun teleports away.
After a lot of running around, Tuxedo Mask stops the Lemres with a rose giving Mini Moon the chance to summon Pegasus with Crystal Twinkle Bell and Sailor Moon to defeat it with Moon Gorgeous Meditation.
Afterwards Rini tells them all that, yes she is seeing someone but she can't tell them his name just yet.
Secretly Rini wonders when Pegasus will let her tell the others about him.
Monster of the Day
Baku Baku was a rather bizarre koi Lemres which really had no strengths other than it's size.
It was defeated by Super Sailor Moon's Moon Gorgeous Meditation.
A rather strange blooper (or was it deliberate?) from an amazingly animated episode was in the dream sequence at the beginning of the episode. Rini in her princess form was missing the crescent moon symbol on her forehead!
The original Japanese name for this episode and the English dub name are remarkably similar!
All the koi imagery in this episode was due to a pun involving the Japanese words for "love" and "koi" which sound similar in this episode.
