Although she's unsure of herself at first, Serena quickly learns that with belief in yourself, anything is possible. Together with the mysterious Tuxedo Mask and her friends, Sailor Moon leads the fight for love and justice! And when Amy discovers that she is really Sailor Mercury, the Negaverse and Queen Beryl don't stand a chance! Earth has a new protector, and her name is Sailor Moon!
