Having been reborn, the Outer Guardians explain they intend to prevent her return by killing her reincarnation: Hotaru Tomoe. As Usagi and her friends disagree, Chibiusa rushes to Hotaru's house to check on her. But Mistress 9, the Daimon entity within Hotaru that has finally gained strength from being exposed to the future Legendary Silver Crystal, takes over her host while stealing both Chibiusa's legendary Silver Crystal of the thirtieth century and soul.

This causes the talismans react, awakening Sailor Saturn from what remained of Hotaru's body. Explaining to the Outer Guardians that her role as a destroyer is necessary for renewal, Saturn proceeds to mortally wound Pharaoh 90 as he recognized her as the light from his visions. Saturn then prepares to swing her Silence Glaive down, the Outer Guardians explaining that Saturn intends to wipe out the entire planet with her weapon's motion.

With Sailor Saturn finally awakened within Hotaru, she brings the utter annihilation of both Pharaoh 90 and the world. Usagi liberates the power she amassed to deal a fatal blow on the already fatally damaged Master Pharaoh 90. Seeing no need to wipe out Earth as Usagi is still alive, Saturn instead intercepts Pharaoh 90 during his attempted escape back into the Tau Star System and has Sailor Pluto use her Dark Dome Close to seal them both away. When the Legendary Silver Crystal evolves all the other Sailor Guardians to their Super forms, Usagi briefly transforms into Neo Queen Serenity and uses her power from the Spiral Heart Moon Rod to restore the city. Shortly afterwards, an infant Hotaru appears, fully reborn with the spirit of Saturn once again slumbering within her, prompting the Outer Guardians deciding to care for her while bidding farewell to Usagi and the Sailor Guardians, and leave to parts unknown. One year later at the beginning of April, Usagi and her friends are now 16-year-old high school students while Mamoru enrolls into a university. The day comes for Chibiusa to return to the 30th-century Earth after having completed her Sailor Guardian training. While watching a solar eclipse with Mamoru, Usagi and Chibiusa hear the clear and mysterious sound of a bell.
