Out of all the filler in episodes of Sailor Moon, which one would you say is your favorite? My favorite is probably episode 186 of Sailor Stars, "The Mystery of Chibi Chibi! The Big Noisy Chase!" I love this episode because it's always hilarious no matter how many times I've seen it. I love how everyone just mindlessly follows Usagi and Chibi Chibi around without even knowing Usagi is following her for the most absurd reason ever. I love all the cute jokes in it, like when they Chibi Chibi making friends with a big dog only for them to be chased by it, and how the monster tries to make them pay for all the expensive pottery stuff. And this episode just has a lot of really great funny lines that I still love to quote. I also love that it shows more of the Starlights' goofy side and I feel like they're at their best as characters when they're not being super serious and angsty all the time. It just never stops to crack me up no matter how many times I've seen it.

Was that really a filler episode? Because it sounds pretty important to the overall story of S.

My top three would be.....

1. Palla Palla's Dentist House - Because I saw it for the first time (and before I saw any of S) when I was 12 on a trip to Cozumel Mexico. As my family and I were waiting to get on our second plane, we saw it on TV in the airport. I vividly remember my excitement for new Sailor Moon, and turning to my sister and saying "I SO knew Rini would become a scout too" lol. I also thought the episode itself was a hoot, showed a bit more creativity compared to a lot of the other episodes in that season (who else of the Quartet set up a business to check dream mirrors?) and it was great to see an episode where Toei actually adapted a manga story again.

2. Save the friends! Moon and Uranus work together - I always loved this one because of getting to see Haruka at the motor bike races, her and Usagi getting chased on her motorcycle, and Haruka proving that girls can kick some serious butt on and off the bike. I also appreciated the more cleverly written plot of having Kaorinite target someone to purposely lure out the senshi and destroy them vs. the same usual filler episode plot. Uranus and Moon's teamwork and Moon jumping in to save Neptune were wonderful touches too.

3. Chibi Chibi's Big Noisy Chase - Just hilarious and cute I agree OP. The part that always gets me is when Chibi Chibi tickles the phage in the belly with the feather :lol: . Plus I own a cel from this episode.

Hard to say, probably any number of episodes in SuperS. Most of the eps were filler, but filler done well, which is why I like SuperS :)

I liked most of the filler from the first season.

My favorites are:

"Learn how to be skinny from Usagi"- I think this episode is a hoot. I think the DiC version was good as well. I don't really care for the way VIZ adapted this episode when she started beating butts to burn calories, since that was my favorite part. Best way to lose weight- go kick the crap out of baddies twice your size. The fat jokes were good too, especially with Luna's drawing. I think it makes the atmosphere lighter for a topic that involves people who are too sensitive to change, or flat out too lazy.

"I want a boyfriend: the luxury cruise ship is a trap"- I love Usagi's disguise for this episode, with Ami and Rei on board I just think this one is plain fun.

The snow white episode where Mako, in the DiC dub, says she has the most talent while pointing to her boobs.

The Supers episode with the blonde foreign princess who kept stealing balloons and giving them to kids.


I'm sure there will be more from StarS when I rewatch it, since the first time I saw it was way back when Sailor Moon was on youtube in potato quality.

I thought it was a filler episode because it wasn't based on anything in the manga.

I would also add since someone mentioned it the cruise ship episode with Thetis. I love Thetis as a character. She was a Youma equal in rank to the Shitennou. You know it is funny in the DiC dub Thetis makes references like she has battled Sailor Moon before with Jadeite even though in the original and the DiC dub she never did.

I'm glad to see another fan of this episode here! Another one of my fav filler ins is episode 31, "Loved and Chased. Luna's Worst Day Ever." I loved all the cute references to Gone With The Wind, even though I'll always love Luna/Artemis the best, Rhett Butler's devotion to protecting Luna was cute, and I love the scene where Zoisite gets attacked by all the rats and Usagi gets back at Luna for all the times she nags her.

The Akayashi Sisters (is that how is spelled?) versus the Senshi. Tuxedo Mask fights Rubeus. The episode is called "The Battle of the Ten Warriors" IIRC.

The episode with the bakery that was giving away free pastries.

Ep. 31 - Zoisite is chased by sewer rats :lol:

The episode regarding Minako's past; It's the closest we've ever got to a Sailor V anime </3

S, IMO, had the most filler episodes that were very fun to watch. Chibiusa's episode with the tea ceremony and the episode with the Twister scene are episodes that come to mind. However funniest filler episode is probably Nurse Minako's in R.

And yes I also agree that episodes such as Haruka and Michiru's past and Inner Senshi vs Ayakashi Sisters weren't necessarily filler as they were important to their season's respective stories.

There are many that I like but I can't remember them all. One of them is episode 20 "It's Summer! The Sea! Our Youth! Also, A Ghost”.

I love how there were only 3 sailor scouts around in the beginning.

My favourite fillers are:
1. 167-172 Nehelenia arc
I just loved the mini-arc with Nehelenia. It was interesting to watch how inners and outers were forced to work with each other. It was definetely the best part of Stars. Later when Starlights appeared the show turned into "Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Starlights"

2. 70 "Battle of the Flames of Love! Mars vs. Koan"
Koan is my fav villian in R, so I really enjoyed this episode. I loved how dramatic this episode turned out to be. And that part in the end when she just looses it and attacks inners is so amazing and touching.

3. 97 "The Labyrinth of Water: Ami Targeted"
After this episode Ami really grew as a character to me. I always thought that she was just "the smart girl". But this episode showed us that even she has her insecurities. Also Michiru finally showed her bitchy side. I knew she had it in her :lol:

4. 109 "The Shocking Moment: Everyone’s Identities Revealed"
Definitely one of the funniest episodes in the whole show. Minako's faces and thoughts still get me every time :D . Also stealing her own pure heart was priceless :happy: I miss this humor.

Most of SuperS. Even though I'm big on action, I love SuperS for some reason. The fights were better than in Stars at least.

I especially love the episode where Usagi and Makoto help this girl Tomoko with her Pegasus story. It was such a heartwarming episode and the fight wasn't lame. It was funny and I loved when Jupiter threw the bomb back at the Lemures. So badass!

I also love the one where Usagi is jealous cause she thinks Mamoru and Saori are gonna be a couple. This was one of my favorites on VHS when I was little. :lol:

Recently I've been fully watching some Stars episodes since I never watched most of the season, just the fight scenes and important episodes, and I liked the episode where Michiru performs in a joint concert with the Three Lights. It's nice to see fun interaction with Uranus and Neptune and the Inners rather than super serious all the time.

But the fight was bad like most Stars fights. It's always Eternal Sailor Moon jumping around until a Starlight saves her and she does the attack.
