The five sailor scouts are finally all together, just in time for the Dark Kingdom, headed by the evil Queen Metalia and Queen Beryl, to start tearing them apart. Kunzite steals Tuxedo Mask away from them just as they all regain their memories of their past lives in the Moon Kingdom. The group finally finds their lost Moon Princess, and they must protect her from the Dark Kingdom. A trip to the moon helps shed some light on who the enemy is and how it impacted their former lives.
This volume is full of action sequences as the team learns some new attacks and bands together to stop the Dark Kingdom. We also see some of the romantic build finally pay off, which will delight some readers. Usagi has some major growth in this volume as she develops into a leader and leaves behind some of her crybaby tendencies. We get our first glimpse of the Moon Kingdom when it was in all of its glory, and the illustrations are breathtaking. The cliffhanger at the end signifies the beginning of the second arc of this series, so keep volume three close by.
