teen idol in Japan. Minako herself is a huge fan, admiring Mimi's beautiful voice and cute appearance
. So when
Minako hears that Mimi would be holding a "Mugen Academy Students Only" concert, Minako
was determined to go claiming that the team should go for investigative purposes. While the others are at Michiru's concert,
Minako, using her Crescent Compact
, disguises herself as a male Mugen Academy student and sneaks
into Mimi's concert
. However, the true reason why Mimi wanted to have a concert was so she could brainwash more people
for Pharaoh 90. Realizing this, Minako quickly slips out of the concert to transform and confront Mimi. In the end, Mimete is
defeated by Sailor Neptune and Uranus.

pre-debut days and on hearing that he will be holding auditions to find a co-star for his new movie, she rushes to
