Summary of "Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Cosmos"
Usagi Tsukino and her friends had regained a brief period of peace and were living normal high school lives. Suddenly, Usagi's boyfriend, Mamoru Chiba, decides to study abroad in America. At the airport, Mamoru gives Usagi an engagement ring. Just after they promise their future together, Mamoru is suddenly made to disappear before Usagi's eyes. As Usagi struggles to accept this reality, Sailor Galaxia and her Shadow Galactica, along with the Sailor Starlights, appear. The Sailor Guardians are unsure whether the Sailor Starlights are friends or foes. One by one, the Sailor Guardians are overpowered by the overwhelming strength of Sailor Galaxia, who steals their power sources, the "Sailor Crystals," and makes them disappear. In this desperate situation, Usagi challenges Sailor Galaxia to the final battle as a Sailor Guardian, believing she will meet her loved ones again. This is the beginning of the final story of the Sailor Guardians, who face their mission and inner struggles head-on.
