    Despite being the dominant Shojo anime in comparable status of DBZ for Shonen esp internationally, Manga's Sales Does not match the Franchises's Rep

    I think it's not that the senshi didn't have development, they clearly have. It's just that after their main arc/focus was over, their development wasn't clearly shown when playing pure supporting roles. PGSM only got DK arc so it's easier to handle.

    Did ppl get wrong with Beryl's character?

    The main issue I have with Beryl's "love caused her to go evil" was that she never truly showed love towards Mamoru. All she did was to brainwash him and force him to do things he didn't like. In the anime she even said "I will kill you, too" when he refused to marry her last life. If her love...

    Disagree, they all got development through the friendship built up. Chibiusa was changed a lot throughout the series. Hotaru was shown to open her heart as well. Villains like Nephrite, Four Sisters, Demande and Nehelenia all got fine development arc.

    Did ppl get wrong with Beryl's character?

    If we talk about story quality, I think it should go middle ground, the character needs to be wise and respected, but at the same time also showed some dark side that caused the downfall instead of a sudden turn. Also she only wanted Mamoru as a trophy, so I don't think love is a good reason for...

    I always want to know, is Fiore related to Makai Tree, like being its offspring?

    A Study in Tragedy, Thoughts and Opinions

    I will say both in the manga and anime, Beryl was not really a "tragic woman without love". She was very ambitious and wanted to rule everything, her love for Endyimon was just a reflection of her trying to gain power and everything else. The anime made it quite clear, the manga also showed in...

    Yeah the problem is there, I think it's because Demande was completely changed in the anime so it would be odd for him to destroy everyone all together.

    Why Michiru didn't get more independent plot?

    Yes, she does have a very good heart inside. But instead of trusting others like Usagi and the Inner Four, she didn't trust others' judgement and thought most of the ppl are not wise and tough enough to face the situation. She was seeking Haruka also because she thought Haruka share similar...

    Both have advantages, the anime has better characterization and some plot. The manga has a quicker tempo and dark tone.

    Mamo gets roasted again!

    I think we all agree that Mamoru was most well handled in the DK arc both manga and anime. In the manga he and the romance was the main focus. In the anime he was shown well as a cool independent character with interaction towards everyone rather than just Usagi's lover. The romance wasn't that...

    Hehe I was talking about Mamoru with my friends these days.

    Did ppl get wrong with Beryl's character?

    If Beryl was such a wise and respected sage before her corruption, I think it would feel shallow if she just went evil to get love by force.

    Digital Full Color Manga Release Announced

    Was Beryl's hair in the flashback black or still red?

    Rank the Shitennou's efficiency as villains

    Both Demande and Wiseman got more respect to Rubeus than Esemeraude as well. I guess the writers did it on purpose to let Mamoru stay in the center. The manga and Crystal we saw Demande was more of a focus than him, many ppl even support Demande/Usagi. But I do like Demande's characterization...

    Rank the Shitennou's efficiency as villains

    I think he is a more competent and menacing villain compare to his sucessor Esmeraude.

    Rank the Shitennou's efficiency as villains

    He did collect huge amount of energy from Naru and caused Metallia to awake.

    Rank the Shitennou's efficiency as villains

    I think Rubeus of the Black Moon Clan is similar to Jadeite's personality, just he was far more menacing and had more interaction with others.

    Rank the Shitennou's efficiency as villains

    Nephrite thought Metallia has already awakened, so it's pointless to collect energy anymore and further failure might get him into trouble again. I don't think Jadeite is that bland. He just focus all his effort to do his job and had the greatest fear/respect to Beryl. Just he didn't realize...

    Rank the Shitennou's efficiency as villains

    Beryl did point out about Zoisite being fruitless during the episode of Nephrite showing his idenity. I don't think it would be wise to do anything without Beryl's permission. Jadeite's end got to do with it. Even Nephrite got into trouble. It's obvious that Beryl had assigned someone to do...

    Rank the Shitennou's efficiency as villains

    Zoisite was given the task of finding the Silver Crystal at least during the same time Nephrite has taken the task. Nephrite and Kunzite didn't have any mission before they took command.
