I like Uranus a lot, and I am very glad that Venus isn't such a ditz and is more serious. HOWEVER, I DON'T want them to make Venus Uranus...and while I like Venus being more serious, she's starting to get on my nerves.
I don't think anyone posted this but, here is the translation of the Act 22 Preview on Toei's site:
"Escaping is useless"
It is Kunzite's trap, the soldier of badness, Sailor Mercury, is changing. It (Sailor Mercury) attacks three people.
"Ami-chan cannot fight!"
Usagi/Sailor Moon is worrying while "Princess" Venus has order to beat the enemy....even if a companion (friend)!
Its looks like Venus will be in this episode and is still leader. I like how Babelfish put the evil Mercury's title, "the soldier of badness". These reminds me of a book I read called "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe". Ami-chan would be Edmund in the story because of betrayal. Can wait till next week!
Also, I found this on Toei's site, too:
A dolphin with Mercury or Kunzite? Can anyone say whats the meaning of this?
Honestly, I dislike the wat they've portrayed Venus. She is a lot like Uranus, and to me it's kinda sad. She was always happy and bubbly, a lot like Usagi, who everyone said was just like her sister. Now, she's a lot like Rei
It looks like there will be more "Darkury" in the next episode, but I hope they make Ami-chan return back to normal. Ami-chan is my favorite scout out of all....(well I do like her evilish costume tho, its better than the regular one)
Since Mako-chan is the only one who knows TK's identity as Chiba Mamoru, I hope Usagi-chan and the others find out real soon too. I suppose if Usagi where to find our who TK really is then maybe she'll be revealed as the princess soon. I hope is like the manga, where Usagi healed everyone and she fell unconscious and TK brings her to his apartment and then she'll find out who he is..
Oh yeah, it looked so fake how TK is blowned by one punch by Mako-chan...
As for the Hina thing, up for all that Hina could be actually someone who is supposed to stay by Mamoru, till he discovers he is Endymon. But gahhh I want her to be out of the arc soon..
Hey there everybody out there in forumland! Guess who? Nope, I'm not Burton Cummings. Who said that?
Gotta say, the style of their episodes have gotten deeper. We have a Dark Ami, now? Cool! Still, I kinda liked the earlier stuff...the characters were really having fun with their parts....the more serious stuff does tend to drag at times. <<shrug>>
Hard to believe we're approaching Act. 22...that means the show is almost half over. Maybe we can convince the suits to to a PGSM T, or something? One can never have too much of a good thing.
I feel like I'm repeating myself from my previous post... hehe. (sweatdrop)
Nope, at least one senshi became "evil" during the Dark Kingdom arc. Tux turned evil, then he used mind control on Makoto to get her to work for him, using her to find out about the underground control room. Makoto then tried to take the ginzuishou from Usagi afterwards, but had been kicked away by Minako. Only then did her senses return.
As for Minako being harsh like Uranus, it really does seem like the characters in PGSM are based more on their manga counterparts than the anime. In the manga, as Minako she's is quite bubbly and all, but as Venus, she's also pretty strict. She had been willing to attack evil Tux and Makoto without hesitation, the latter of which had been stated earlier.
The way you said it made me laugh... sounded sarcastic. Oopps..
Finally got Act21 downloaded and have to agree that the punch Makoto gave TK was a bit too light to send him down on the floor. Accroding to my calculations.. (haha.. was just joking) the impact by the punch should only be enough to take a step back, and no, it's not called dadging since he didn't attempted to dodge it. I guess he felt that he deserve the "punishment" for saying such a cruel and harsh lie.
Ahh! Back from Cuba and quite impressed that the Mercury situation didn't clear up in one episode. I do think that there is a point to it all though. I think it will eevntually lead to Moon being revealed as princess. Who knows, maybe they'll all (minus moon) get taken?
I must say though, Dark Mercury's fuku looks mighty spiffy.
Fallen into Kunzite's trap, Sailor Mercury, who has changed into an soldier of evil, attacks the three [other senshi].
"I can't fight with Ami-chan!"
<Princess> Venus orders a troubled Usagi/Sailor Moon. Bring down the enemy....even if it's an ally!
Wow, who knew that Sailor Venus would be seriously belligerent? And I wonder how long it would take Mamoru to break his engagement with Hina and finally make Usagi happy... I would think this episode is a filler. Nevertheless, the Princess is in this episode, so that's got to count for something. Down on the ground for a reason that we won't get to see until the end of the week, but she's still there... so, all five senshi in one place at the same time!
