The Sailor Team and Chibichibi. ... For the first installment in the series, see Final Fantasy (video game). ...


The game appears to be set between the third and fourth story arcs, though some elements appear to come from later (including specific powers possessed by the characters). The story combines its own elements with those of both anime and manga, such as Tuxedo Mask's anime-based rose-throwing, or Chibiusa's manga-based use of the Holy Grail to become Super Sailor Chibi Moon. Throughout the game, the player can also collect puzzle pieces which make an image of the Senshi and Tuxedo Mask. If the puzzle is completed, there is a reward at the end.


While the game was never internationally released, a fan translation exists, though it gets some of the characters names wrong and sometimes uses fan names or names from the dub instead of the Japanese names.


In Another Story, an evil woman named Apsu arrives from the 30th century. She has gathered a group of girls from Crystal Tokyo and ordered them to affect the past in order to change the future to her liking, with the ultimate goal of attaining the Mystical Silver Crystal. Her followers are called the "Oppositio Senshi," and succeed in changing the fates of the defeated villains from the first three story arcs, bringing deceased villains back to life and turning reformed and healed individuals back to the darkness. The 30th century of the anno Domini (common) era will span the years 2901–3000 of the Gregorian calendar. ... The Mystical Silver Crystal, or Maboroshi no Ginzuishou (lit. ...


With the advice of the ghosts of the Shitennou, the Senshi set out to regain the Barazuishou, Tuxedo Mask's stone (which replaces the Golden Crystal in the game) in order to change Sailor Moon's destiny back, and to save Crystal Tokyo. This does not adequately cite its references or sources. ... To meet Wikipedias quality standards, this article or section may require cleanup. ...


The game has two endings. If the player loses to the final boss, Chibiusa and the remaining Senshi will fight a slightly easier form of it and the player will receive the "bad" ending.


Characters unique to the game

  • Apsu: The woman controlling the villains.
  • Sin: The Oppositio version of Sailor Moon.
  • Anshar: Sin's younger brother, who becomes a friend to Chibiusa.
  • Nabu: The Oppositio version of Sailor Mercury.
  • Ishtar: The Oppositio version of Sailor Venus.
  • Marduk: The Oppositio version of Sailor Jupiter.
  • Nergal: The Oppositio version of Sailor Mars.

Changes made for the game

  • Pluto's Garnet Rod is green on the puzzle and silver on Plutos sprite instead of its normal purple.
  • In the unofficial English translation, the Holy Grail is called the Moon Cup.
  • The Grail is present even when the eight Senshi needed are not present (Manga) despite being broken (Anime)
  • The Barazuishou (Rose Crystal) replaces the Golden Crystal, as it had not been introduced into the continuity at the time the game was published.
  • Sailor Pluto can stop time without falling into a dimensional rift.
