Sailor Moon (1995) s02e25 Episode Script

225 - Sibling Rivalry

I'm sorry I'm not straightforward, I can say it in my dreams My thoughts are about to short circuit, I want to see you right now Moonlight that makes me want to cry, midnight that keeps me from calling Because I'm so innocent, what should I do? The heart is a kaleidoscope Guided by the light of the moon We will meet again and again I count the sparkle of constellations to foretell the future of my love We were born in the same land, miracle romance I believe in it, miracle romance Berthier, deceiving and using others isn't all there is to life.
Even if it might be unanswered, truly loving someone, being considerate of others and desiring to help each other are the most important things in life.
And humans have a capacity for incredibly deep love.
I want you to understand that! For Friendship! Ami and Berthier Clash For Friendship! Ami and Berthier Clash For Friendship! Ami and Berthier Clash For Friendship! Ami and Berthier Clash Check! I've lost.
Brilliant! Chess Master Chess Master Man, and I did my research, too.
Man, and I did my research, too.
But I guess you're good at chess as well as schoolwork.
Chess is the perfect game of the intellect.
It cultivates a calm mentality and accurate judgment.
Calm and accurate.
Words that you'll never be associated with, no matter what you do.
You are so not cute! But you're amazing, Ami! Come to think of it, you're the Junior Chess Champion of Japan; aren't you, Ami? Oh, that was just luck.
All right, let's all learn chess from Ami and aim to be future champions! I think I'll pass.
Being calm and stuff like that isn't really my thing.
Oh, I can totally understand! You're even worse than me at those things! You didn't have to say it like that That's the pot calling the kettle black.
Hey, Usagi, you wanna play with me? Sure.
Bring it on and don't hold back.
I'll show you just how harsh competition can be.
Check! Oh, wait wait a minute! No! The world of competition is harsh! Oh, brother.
Chibi-Usa, you're very good.
Oh, I think I'm going to head home soon.
Oh, no.
I have something to do, too.
What? Do you have cram school, Ami? No, I'm going to Chess Tower.
Chess Tower? Oh, you look beautiful! Really? Pitiful! Thank you very much! She's a disgrace to the Four Phantom Sisters.
Yes, may I help you find something? But why? Why did Koan want to become a normal human? I wouldn't know what goes through the mind of a traitor.
She is no longer our younger sister, and she doesn't mean anything to us now.
Our clan has no need for traitors.
Foolish Koan.
Well, we'll think of how to deal with the traitor later.
This is the newly discovered Crystal Point.
Master Rubeus, leave this to me! Berthier is eager for success.
There is nothing wrong with that.
If all goes well, we'll just join in and share the credit.
That's true.
I will trust you to take care of the rest.
Yes, sir! The glory will all be mine and mine alone.
In the end, you guys are nothing but expendable pawns to protect the king, me.
Just keep up the hard work until I have no further use for you.
Hmm, this shape looks really familiar.
It's shaped like a cake.
It's not a cake; it's a rook.
Rook? Mako, it's a chess piece that's shaped like a castle.
The owner of this building is a huge fan of chess.
I see.
Next Sunday, they are having the opening ceremony for this Chess Tower, and they're holding a worldwide chess tournament.
I get it! You're entering that tournament, aren't you, Ami? Then, you'll win for sure! Oh, no.
I just like to play chess.
The result isn't an issue.
The result is the issue.
A competition that you don't intend to win is a waste of time, don't you think? After all, the point of a competition is to win.
Who the heck are you? Even if you lose, if you did your best, then who cares? That is the sour-grapes rationalization of a loser.
Oh, of course, I suppose your nice, friendly games of chess are nothing more than child's play.
Hey, look here! Oh, pardon me.
I'll play your little game with you some other time, okay? What is her problem? Meanie.
Ah, it's you, Ami.
I haven't seen you in a while.
It has become a wonderful building.
Thank you.
By the way, you're entering the tournament, too, aren't you? Yes.
What do you say? Since it's been a while.
I often played with your grandfather like this, too.
Ami, has something happened? What? Before, it seemed as though you played to forget your loneliness.
But not anymore.
You seem somehow more I made some wonderful friends.
I see! I'm glad to hear that.
Good friends are a treasure won'th more than anything in the world.
Yes, I think so, too.
Just between the two of us, would you mind letting me rethink that move? You haven't changed at all.
Well, well, that smile is quite nice.
Um, the reception desk closed at six, right? Yes, the only ones left on this floor should be you and me.
Would you mind if I look around the place a little? Oh, not at all.
Would you mind if I look around the place a little? Oh, not at all.
Thank you very much.
So, this is the center of the Crystal Point.
Dark Water! Stop it! It's that nice, friendly girl.
Little girl, you're very brave.
But the world is not so easy that you'll be able to stop me alone.
Besides, I hate goody-two-shoes like you.
I'll send you to Hell! Lt'll be better for you not to get up.
Because, see Oh, did that hurt? I'm sorry.
Don't worry, I'll end your pain with the next blow.
Mercury Mercury Star Power Makeup! My, what a surprise! So, you're Sailor Mercury.
Now, I'll have a nice souvenir to take back to Master Rubeus.
Shine Aqua Illusion! How dare you interfere with my work?! Sparkling Wide Pressure! That hurt! You're terrible! Three against one is playing dirty! I'm against violence! Look who's talking! You want me to fire off another one at you?! I'm mad now! You will pay for this; I assure you! Oh, no! Did something happen? She knows who I am! What?! I transformed right in front of Berthier.
I'm sorry.
If Berthier is after Chess Tower, she's sure to show up again.
Don't worry about it! We'll take care of it somehow.
Thank you.
Oh, it left a scratch, just as I thought.
It really ticks me off that they scratched my perfect skin.
Oh, are you hurt? No way! Oh, it's true.
Oh, sisters! The thing is How awful.
It's bleeding.
Don't tell me you failed.
Of course not! I'd hope not! If you failed after volunteering for the mission, you couldn't just come crawling back here like nothing happened.
I would be so humiliated that I would die.
Oh, please, sisters! Of course! I won't be needing your help.
I'm relieved to hear that.
One ninny like Koan is more than enough.
Ami no, Sailor Mercury, let us compete at chess, the game you're so proud of.
I can't wait.
I'd like to enter the worldwide chess tournament All right, what's your name? Let's see, what should I do? What? I haven't decided yet.
That way, please.
Thank you.
My heart's pounding! Yeah! Oh, she won another one! Wort it be great if Ami wins? Yeah.
And so, let us cheer her on! Rah, rah, Ami! Go for it, go for it, Ami! Usagi! You girls Oh, I'm sorry for being so rowdy.
No, no.
That is, are you girls Ami's friends? Yes! I see.
So, you girls are the wonderful friends she mentioned.
Who are you, mister? Just the eccentric old man who built this Chess Tower.
Then, you're the owner! Right.
Excuse me, but do you think Ami has a chance of winning? Her rival is the problem.
See? She won another one.
This girl is good.
It's Berthier.
What is she doing participating in this tournament? All right! Ami sure is good! She'll win this round with no problems again! Oh, that girl won another one, too.
She really is good, just like the owner said.
It's the final round at last.
Her opponent is that girl, just as expected.
Let's have a fun game of chess.
Her hand is so cold! I will beat you soundly and fill this place with Dark Power.
I can't wait.
I'd like to use these pieces for the final game.
They're beautiful.
They aren't just beautiful.
What? Berthier She's good.
Oh, Ami's pieces Ami! Come now, what's the matter? It's your turn.
Oh, I know! Yay! Their positions are reversed now! Check.
She did it! Check.
She did it! Not yet.
The match isn't settled yet.
What? The real competition has only just begun, Sailor Mercury.
Playtime is over! Quiet! Goodness, are they having technical difficulties? Wait! We'll go check on it.
Stay right here! Moon Crystal Power! Mars Star Power! Jupiter Star Power! Venus Star Power! Makeup! Hold it right there! You're a million and fifty thousand years ahead of yourself if you think you can challenge Ami in a game of chess! For a girl who doesn't know her place In the name of the moon, I will punish you! You little dummies.
Sailor Moon! Everyone! As they say, "Those born stupid, die stupid.
" Sailor Mercury, I challenge you to a match.
If you don't play the game you're so proud of Oh my god, it's cold! It's no good! What's going on?! See? Feel like playing now? All right.
Okay, good girl.
Since you're being good, I'm also going to give myself an advantage.
That's terrible! If you don't hurry up and escape, I'll put you in check you.
It's no use.
Oh, I forget to tell you.
When you play with my special pieces and lose a piece, your body becomes frozen.
Mercury! Hang in there! You can't lose! Believe in your own strength! If you forfeit, I will let you and you alone live.
Let's continue.
I think you might be quite a dummy yourself.
Mercury, that's enough! Run, Mercury! All right, since it's come to this Burning Mandala! Mars, you idiot! I'm sorry! Check.
Just stop being proud and pretending that you're okay.
Are you going to give up your life for these strangers? That would be stupid.
You're wrong.
What? They're not strangers; they're my friends! Friends? Even if costs me my life, they're my precious friends, and I have to protect them! Stop trying to buy time.
Good work, Berthier.
All three of us will work together to finish them off.
Honestly, you two have some nerve! Oh, but the three of us make up the Three Phantom Sisters.
That's right; we should all be nice and share the glory.
You, again.
Check! Ouch! If you do not understand what it feels like to be a pawn, you have no right to handle a queen.
Sisters! This is your tactical mistake, Berthier.
That's right! As befits a member of our clan, you will pay for your failure with your life! We expect you to do the right thing.
See? In the end, that's what you get, even from sisters related by blood.
Moreover, no one would ever protect a complete stranger at the risk of their own life.
What's the matter? You look so somber.
Come on, laugh.
Even I think it's laughable that I held out hope until the very end that I could rely on my sisters.
It's so laughable Laugh, damn it! Dark Water Full Power! I'll take all of you with me! Ultimately, people are alone both when they're born and when they die! Love is Love is Useless! Stop it, dear elder sister Berthier! Koan! So, you've come to laugh at me, too! Berthier Berthier, you are not alone! A traitor like you could never understand what I'm feeling! No, Berthier.
I can understand how forlorn you are at heart! Shut up! Koan! Berthier, please live.
Humans have Humans have the capacity for incredibly deep love.
Berthier! Koan Will I also be able to see that love? Berthier! Koan! Are you crying? Did that hurt? No, I'm just so happy.
Koan, I'm so sorry! Berthier, I love you.
Moon Crystal Power! Refresh! Isn't this wonderful? Yes.
Thank you.
You hung in there well.
Berthier, could you please take back that move? No way.
We may be sisters, but there are no time-outs.
That's not fair! You were using an extra piece?! Now, now, don't be such a stickler for the rules.
That's not fair! Berthier, I love you.
I'll never give up, no matter how tight a spot I'm in That's right, that's the sweet maiders policy For the person I'll really meet and cherish someday I'll raise my chin and leap into the fray Deep in my heart, with a poignant ache Love will awaken There's nothing I'm afraid of It's better to be passionate I have big dreams That's why I'll try to be brave I'll become what I want to become It's better to be someone who does her best Every so often, there are tears, too But even so, I'll try to be brave
