  • Summary (almost a script ^_^;;) version 0.9 by Hitoshi Doi, 1996.03.09
Mimina was crying at Helena's bed.

Mimina: Helena, I shouldn't have looked into her memory. She's my friend. I like Ririka a lot. Why does it have to be destined this way?

Mimina: Isn't there any way to save Ririka? Isn't there a way to save you, Ririka, Earth, Queen Earth and everyone?

Helena: The final battle is going to begin.. Ririka.

[title screen]

In Ririka's room, Kanon was standing in front of Ririka.

Ririka: Kanou-senpai, what did you just say? Kanou-senpai, it's a joke right? I'm going to die.
Kanon: I found out why the flower of life couldn't be found. I found out why it wasn't anywhere on Earth. The answer was deep in your memory. You didn't know it yourself. There was a memory of a distant legend.
Ririka: A memory that I didn't know myself.
Kanon: In the distant past, the dark joker was on the Earth. To them the flower of life was the base of the black vaccine too. The nurse angel was born from the feeling of love and justice of everyone in the universe. She was just one girl who faced the dark joker. She made a decision, not to give the flower of life to the dark joker. She destroyed all of the flower of life herself.
Ririka: The nurse angel did that..
Kanon: The dark joker lost their base for the black vaccine, so they returned to the darkness. But the nurse angel knew that the dark joker will revive, and there will be a day when the flower of life was needed again. So she combined a destiny with the flower of life. She put the seeds of the flower of life into her own life.
Kanon: And now, the dark joker returned, and the nurse angel was revived. Ririka, that's you. You're the regeneration of the nurse angel. So the flower of life is you.
Ririka: Then how can I take out the flower of life?
Kanon: You should know how that can be done.
Ririka [started crying]: I don't know. I don't know.
Then a flash of memory went through Ririka's mind.

Kanon: The flower of life will bloom in exchange for the life of the nurse angel.
Ririka: It can't be. It can't be, senpai!
Kanon: The Earth is already infected by the black vaccine. The life of Princess Helena and Earth are about to get perished. Tomorrow, on your birthday, everything will be destroyed.
Kanon started crying too.
Kanon: The only person who can stop that is the flower of life, you.
Ririka: It can't be.. It can't be..
Kanon: We need your life.
Ririka: Please say it isn't true. Please say it isn't so. Help me, help me.

Ririka's mother knocked on Ririka's door. She wanted to get Ririka so they can choose the cake for her birthday. But Ririka didn't answer. Madoka (mother) thought that Ririka had already gone to sleep.

Ririka: Soon, the black vaccine will come destroy this peace.

Ririka was lying on the floor of her room.

Ririka: I want to live. I don't want to die. I want to keep on living.

Meanwhile, Kanon was in his house thinking about Ririka. Helena talked to him (via telepathy).

Helena: I'm sorry for making you feel so miserable.
Kanon: Don't worry about my pain. But a destiny like this is too cruel for a 10 year old girl who had grown up with so much love.
Helena: Even if there is such a thing as destiny, don't we humans have the power to change that..

Then Ririka came into Kanon's house.

Ririka: Senpai, tomorrow there is a birthday party at my house. Everyone's going to celebrate my 11th birthday. Please wait for that to end. I want to finish it with a smile. Please come too.

Then Ririka left.

[CM break]

At Ririka's birthday party, everyone was having a great time. Everyone was trying to give Ririka their presents.
Ririka: Thank you everyone. Thank you.

There were 11 candles on Ririka's cake. All of the guests were going to give Ririka a message, one at a time, and then Ririka was going to blow out the candles one at a time.

First it was Ririka's mother, then Ririka's father, Karin, Anna, Ririka's grandmother, Shou (Ririka's younger brother), Seiya's parents, and the people from Seiya's father's hospital. Then Miyuki and her friends arrived, along with Dewey. There was one candle left. Karin and Anna mentioned that Seiya wasn't around.

Ririka: I'm happy to have been born.
Then Ririka started crying.

Seiya came carrying a large bouquet of flowers. Since Seiya had run out of money, he had made part of the bouquet out of tissues.

Ririka: Thank you, Seiya. I'm very happy.

Then Ririka and Seiya blew out the final candle together.

Everyone left as the party ended.

Ririka went out and saw Kanon (wearing a suit).

Ririka: You came for me.
Kanon: Happy birthday.
Ririka: Thank you very much, senpai.
Then Ririka cried and went into Kanon's arms.

Meanwhile Dewey and Seiya were pigging out on the food.
Seiya: Ririka's late..

Then they both rushed outside, and saw Kanon standing there.

Kanon: Seiya, Dewey, I want you to watch her final act.
Seiya: What!?

Ririka was on a hill by herself.
Ririka [said to herself]: If there is a god, please if I'm ever going to be reborn, make me Moriya Ririka.
Ririka: Seinaru chikara.. [The holy power..]
Seiya [screaming and crying]: Stop it! Don't die!
Ririka: Seiya, Dewey, Kanou-senpai.
Seiya: Why do you have to die!
Dewey: You're the one who said it, nurse angel! That nobody was going to be sacrificed.
Ririka: I've already decided.
Seiya: Don't decide by yourself, stupid! We're going home, Ririka.
Ririka: Don't come, Seiya!
Ririka: I'm happy that I was the nurse angel. Because of me, I can protect all of the people that I love.
Seiya: What about us? What about the people that loves you? Even if the Earth is saved, if you're not here, your mother and father, and me..
Ririka: Kanou-senpai, I have one last wish. If the Earth is saved, please erase the memory of me from my father, my mother, and everyone.
Seiya: What?
Ririka: If a person called Moriya Ririka never existed, nobody will be sad.
Seiya: What are you saying, Ririka?
Kanon: Ok, Ririka, I promise.
Seiya: What, Kanon! I won't let you!
Ririka: Seinaru chikara.. [The holy power..]
Dewey: Ririka, Moriya Ririka!
Ririka: Oh, Dewey called me Ririka.
Dewey: I'll call you Ririka as many times as you like. The reason I stopped being the dark joker was not just because of the green vaccine. It's because you were there, Ririka. It's because of you.
Ririka: Seinaru negai.. [The holy wish..]
Seiya: Ririka.. Don't go! Ririka!
Ririka: Koko he! [Come here!]

Ririka began her transformation into the nurse angel.

Then Helena used the last of her power to combine with Ririka to form a dual transformation (or something like that).
[The animation here is identical to the bit of animation in the second OP, where Ririka and Helena come together and kiss.]

Ririka: The flower of life, I'll give you my life.
Seiya: We promised! When you grow up that you'll become a nurse, and I'll become a doctor..
Ririka: Seiya..
Seiya: Ririka!

Then the flower of life started growing.

Seiya: Is this the flower of life?
Kanon: The Earth is becoming full of the flower of life..
Seiya: Ririka!

They all looked up to see a nurse angel holding Ririka in her arms. Then the nurse angel and Ririka both vanished.

The flower of life started to spread. Seiya was crying and screaming out. Tears were streaming down Kanon's face.
Dewey: It was saved, Ririka. The whole universe was saved because of your life.

After the flower of life spread, the Earth became normal again.

Ririka was lying in a pasture of the flower of life.

[ED music begins]

Ririka's eyes opened.
Ririka: I'm alive.

[ED song]

[The very end of the ED animation had some images of a healthy Helena.]
