This second collection of short stories actually consists of one long and two short tales. The first and longest story 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 and ends up developing a crush on an astrophysicist whose dream of becoming an astronaut has been dashed by heart disease.
Rei’s background, and her unrequited feelings for her father’s executive secretary are revealed. The final tale is a total comedy that follows the children of Usagi and her fellow Sailor Guardians, proving that apples do not fall far from their trees!
