Protect the Girls' Hearts in Love” is the third episode of the first season of the Sailor Moon anime, and the third episode overall. The episode first aired in Japan  on March 21, 1992.

Summary

All the girls in town are tuning in to the late-night radio program called "Midnight Zero" that reads out love letters sent in by the listeners. Meanwhile, a strange sleeping sickness is plaguing the town, causing people to fall into a coma-like state, including Ms. Haruna and Naru.

Plot

Naru, Usagi, and Ms. Haruna listen to a midnight radio program, "Midnight Zero" that reads out love letters and does song dedications for people. A competition is announced for good love letters — if they are read out loud on the radio, the writer will receive a flower brooch prize. Usagi tries to write a love letter, but it's too hard because she doesn't have a boyfriend. Naru and Ms. Haruna get flower brooches from the show and get their energy drained. Usagi and Luna go to investigate, but have trouble getting into the radio station. Luna gives Usagi the Disguise Pen, and she changes herself into a beautiful talent scout, and sneaks in. She confronts J Dite, and shouts out on the radio a warning that the flower brooches are dangerous. Jadeite and the youma Flau attacks her. She fights back, and is overpowered by Jadeite. Tuxedo Mask rescues her, and Jadeite retreats. The next day at school, she writes a love letter to Tuxedo Mask and is teased by Naru and Ms. Sakurada.
