Plot: As the Sailor Senshi fight the last of the Witches 5, Chibiusa continues searching for Hotaru.



  • Mistress 9 first appeared.


  • This episode featured the final appearances of Kaolinite and Cyprine.
  • Ptilol was first and last seen here. In previous episodes, only one of the Witches 5 twins was seen in silhouette. Based on the side (left) that her braid was on, the twin that showed up earlier was theoretically Ptilol. However, Cyprine is considered the “main” twin, but her braid is placed on the right. The voice actor for the mystery Witches 5 girl in episode 117 differed from the two actors credited in 123.


  • Cloverway’s English dub (titled “Wake Up Call”):

    Rini/Chibiusa’s nightmare of Hotaru on a cross was edited for the television airing.

    “Venus Love Chain Encircle” and “Venus Love Chain” were both used.

    "Mars Fire Ignite” became “Mars Fireballs Flash.”

    Rather than saying “Make Up,” the Sailor Scouts said “Planet Power.” Additionally, Usagi/Serena’s vocal command was “Moon Cosmic Power Transform.”
