Galaxia's death in the manga is strange. From what I can gather, Galaxia is so in her feelings about Sailor Moon's love and forgiveness that she loses the will to fight. Her bracelets just spontaneously(?) shatter, and she vanishes into oblivion. Thinking about this strange, abrupt demise, it just occurred to me -- did Galaxia deliberately kill herself?

It's very hard to make sense of a lot of the Stars arc, but I think the idea behind the scene is that Galaxia grew dependent on her bracelets to the point that they kept her alive. I'm assuming the bracelets have some connection with Chaos and since she tried to get close to Sailor Moon's light, they just disintegrated? I'm assuming that's the idea because one of the biggest driving ideas behind that entire scene at the Galaxy Cauldron is that while the dark and light seek each other out, they're normally unable to become one... Or maybe not, I don't know!

So, parallel to the anime, Sailor Moon's light renders Galaxia powerless?

It's possible I'm interpreting things from a melodramatic lens. :P

Sure looks that way when you look at the scene again. Galaxia admitted that she stood no chance against Chaos and the situation she and Usagi were in was dire. After Usagi revealed how much of her own self she saw in her rival and how much she understood the unbearable weight of loneliness, this caused a moment of self reflection. It's open to interpretation, but Galaxia either committed suicide - most likely as a way to atone for her actions - or the Sapphire Crystal, which had been built on a foundation of malice and greed, simply shattered after Galaxia had that change of heart.

I understood that she was going to the cauldron, where perhaps she could revive in the future. According to the guardian of the cauldron, anyone could revive at any time. It's a bit confusing at the end, yes. I was left with many doubts.
