At the start of the movie, when the Sailor Senshi announce, “Leave everything to us, even world peace!”, a single rose overlaps them after they’ve raised their arms. The overlapped rose is intended to represent their inner beauty. The rose then withers away into the darkness, portentously foreshadowing the coming events and the serious nature of the story that’s about to unfold. … It was the length of that enveloping darkness - I mean - in a pitch-black theatre; it makes you feel somewhat uneasy. … So after the period of darkness, we have the opening, where [the audience] is confronted by a sudden burst of vibrant roses, to relieve the dramatic tension. We wanted this part [the juxtaposition of the roses] to reflect the overarching mood and set the tone for the rest of the movie.

— Kunihiko Ikuhara (director) on the flower symbolism in the R Movie prologue
