Battle Description and Commentary
[S. Moon points her spiral heart moon rod at Kenshin and shoots a stream of sparkles.]
S. Moon: Moon Spiral Heart Attack!
[Kenshin dodges and rushes S. Moon, slashing rapidly.]
Johnny: Kenshin is shattering Sailor Moon's attempts at a defense.
[She parries some of the blows with her wand, but receives several bruises. Kenshin jumps backward and up, screaming into the air.]
Nick: That's an impossibly-complicated uppercut-and-downstroke combo that Kenshin's attempting.
[He tries an aerial downstroke, but S. Moon blocks and rolls low at the last moment and sweeps his leg as he's landing.]
Johnny: But look! Sailor Moon has dodged...
[S. Moon topples Kenshin while he's off-balance]
S. Moon: Sailor body attack!
[and sits on his chest, getting her legs around his neck.]
S. Moon: Sailor scissor-strangle!
Johnny: ...and she's strangling him in a leg-lock!
[Kenshin pushes her off and she flies away, landing safely. But he flies at her, spinning, and lands a solid blow to her chin...]
Kenshin: Ryu-Kan-Sen Tsumuji!
Nick: Kenshin's not out yet, he's using his spin-and-slash technique to knock Sailor Moon to Jupiter!
[which sends her into the rails. S. Moon is down;]
Nick: This guy's incredible!
[Ref. Mills Lane goes in for the count while the Sailor senshi move towards the ring.]
Mercury: Get up, Sailor Moon!
Venus: You can't let yourself be beaten by a girly-man!
Jupiter: That foxy-woman is making eyes at your boyfriend again...
[Kenshin stays alert for a possible recovery, and shows no surprise when S. Moon stands to face him again.]
S. Moon: You certainly fight like a red-haired tornado, but you won't send me to Oz!
[Ref. Mills Lane ducks out. S. Moon becomes a blur, hurling energy-bolts at Kenshin in rapid succession.]
S. Moon: Rainbow Moon Heart Ache!
Johnny: He may be amazing, but that girl's got a lot left in her. See how she isn't letting up on Kenshin? He can't dodge all of those blasts.
[Kenshin deflects or dodges most of the bolts but she penetrates his defense, leaving painful welts and cuts on his body. Kenshin bends low and runs, going for a powerful uppercut,...]
Nick: If Kenshin can evade her attack long enough to get in another high-powered hit, he'll take the match!
[but S. Moon precludes the move by tossing out her tiara like a boomerang.]
S. Moon: Moon tiara action!
Johnny: And she knows it, too. He can't launch an attack if he can't stand, and no one can escape a tiara-toss.
[The tiara captures him mid-stride. He falls face-forward, hitting the mat with a thud and held tightly by a glowing ring of light.]
Nick: Ouch! That's gotta hurt!
[Ref. Mills Lane goes in for the count and an agitated "Kenshin-gumi" also rushes to the rails.]
Kaoru [screaming]: Kenshin, you'd better get up, or don't come home!
[the crack of a whip is heard in the background]
[The audience cheers and jeers as S. Moon calmly clasps hands with her friends through the railing then straightens and waves to the crowd.]
Johnny: Sailor Moon certainly knows how to play to a crowd. Just like an elegant little princess.
Nick: Uh, Johnny, she is a princess.
[Kenshin strains and bursts the energy ring, rising to face S. Moon. His clothes are tattered and blood-stained, but his eyes have a serious cast. Kenshin sheathes his sword and assumes the Battou-jutsu stance. (cat-like forward crouch; left-hand on sword sheath, right-hand poised above the sword hilt)]
Nick: Kenshin is up again and playing for keeps...finally. He's got that stone-cold stare of a killing master. This Deathmatch just got more interesting with the appearance of the legendary Hitokiri Battou-sai!
[S. Moon shudders slightly then raises her arms to attack-position, an object clasped in one hand.]
S. Moon: Starlight Honeymoon Therapy Kiss!
[Kenshin abruptly hurls himself at S. Moon, flipping his sakaba sword to the killing-position and slashing S. Moon just as a huge heart envelopes him and explodes in an incandescent burst of light. The studio is silent until the light subsides, then the audience goes nuts when a bruised-and-bloody S. Moon is sprawled out on the mat and Kenshin is nowhere to be found.]
Johnny: Did you see that! Blasted him in the middle of the fastest-of-the-fast attacks!
Nick: The crowd's going insane...
[Kaoru looks up and lets out an anguished scream, pointing towards the roof, where Kenshin's body is slung across the light fixture like a sack of rice.]
Megumi: Oh my god, they killed Ken-san!
Sano: You bastards!
[Ref. Mills Lane whistles...]
Nick: Well it looks like Sailor Moon's won this ma...hold on, Ref. Mills Lane has called a foul on Sailor Moon!
[and heads into the ring to haul S. Moon to her feet. He pulls the unknown object from her hand and holds it up to the camera.]
Ref. Mills Lane: Illegal performance of a "Starlight Honeymoon Therapy Kiss". Use of a prohibited item, the "Eternal Moon Power Tier". Sailor Moon forfeits, Kenshin wins the match by default!
Kenshin [falling from the rafters]: Oro ro...[thump]
