She first meets Usagi and the others after transferring to Minato Ward Juban Public Middle School from her old school.
It's soon revealed that while Makoto considered transferring because of the emotional pain of being rejected by an older student, the real inspiration for the move was a sense that something more important was waiting for her, suggesting that she had begun to remember her past life and awaken as a Sailor Guardian well before Sailor Moon, Sailor Mercury and Sailor Mars.
Makoto fully awoke as Sailor Jupiter when Motoki, the video arcade guy, was possessed by the enemy. Makoto seeing a resemblance between him and her previous crush allowed herself to be seduced by him though once Sailor Moon and the others arrived and revealed that he and the possessed bride creature had been using people, Makoto defended herself by throwing the "bride", seemingly destroying it. Suddenly the symbol of the planet Jupiter began glowing on her forehead, symbolising her awakening.
Luna threw Makoto her Transformation Pen which quickly transformed her into the Sailor Guardian of Thunder and Courage, Sailor Jupiter. Sailor Jupiter immediately attacked Nephrite, who had been watching, with both her Flower Hurricane and Jupiter Thunderbolt attacks, destroying him.
