Just as Sailor Saturn is about to swing the Silence Glaive, Usagi liberates the power she amassed to deal a fatal blow on Pharaoh 90. As Pharaoh 90 attempts to escape by a portal back to the Tau Solar System, Sailor Saturn chases after him and urges Sailor Pluto to close it in order to trap both on the other side, which she regrettably does. By the power of the Legendary Silver Crystal, the other Sailor Guardians obtain upgraded costumes and Usagi briefly transforms into Neo Queen Serenity, using her power to restore the city. Soon after, Hotaru reappears, reincarnated as a baby, and the Outer Guardians decide to take care of her before bidding farewell to the others and leaving to parts unknown. One year later at the end of April, Usagi and her friends, now 16, become high school students, while Mamoru enrolls into a university. The day comes for Chibiusa to return to 30th century Earth after completing her Sailor Guardian training. However, while watching a solar eclipse with Mamoru, Usagi and Chibiusa hear the clear and mysterious sound of a bell.
