The first and longest story of this collection pays homage to one of the oldest folk tales of Japan, the 'Tale of the Bamboo Cutter'. Usagi's faithful sidekick Luna is saved by an astrophysicist who she develops a crush on. When he happens upon a mysterious crystal shard, a sinister power from the outskirts of the galaxy is revealed to be on the warpath. Another story reveals Rei's background, as her feelings for her father's executive secretary are unravelled. And the final tale is a comedy that follows the children of Usagi and her fellow Sailor Guardians!
