Sailor Moon Crystal Season 4 Plot
The plot of Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal revolves around a 14-year-old girl, Usagi Tsukino, who is in her second year of junior high. Although clumsy and easily brought to tears, Usagi’s life is completely changed when she encounters a mysterious black-talking cat called Luna, who bears the mark of the crescent moon on her forehead. During their encounter, Luna bestows Usagi with a magical brooch that allows her to transform into Sailor Moon, a magical girl in a sailor uniform who serves as the guardian of love and peace in the world.
Meanwhile, the queen of the Dark Kingdom, Queen Beryl, also sends minions to the town where Usagi lives to obtain the Illusionary Silver Crystal, which has immense power. This causes strange events to unfold.
With her new powers, Usagi is then tasked with finding a legendary artifact of immense power called the Silver Crystal. In her quest to find the Silver Crystal, Usagi also has to find other Sailor Guardians like herself, and the lost princess of the Moon Kingdom, which is Luna’s home. As the show progresses, Usagi and Luna come across other Sailor Guardians, such as Sailor Mercury, Sailor Venus, and Sailor Jupiter. They also come across a masked vigilante searching for the Silver Crystal, and the vigilante later reveals himself to be a boy called Mamoru Chiba. Later in the show, Usagi and Mamoru, along with other Sailor Guardians, start investigating the mysterious cases of students from an elite school called Mugen Academy who are inexplicably transformed into monsters.
