Also, what do you think is happening to Mamoru in the episode "Nephrite's Evil Crest" (the tennis episode)?
This is quite different from the way he usually uses roses (he throws it backwards and it sticks to the enemy) and he never uses roses like that again.
I think he is using the rose to stun the enemy long enough for Usagi to perform her attack and it is draining his power.
It looks like he is literally fading into and out of existence, maybe he is just changing back from Tuxedo Mask to Mamoru.

Isn't that chaos itself that was sealed in Galaxia by herself?
It's been so long since I watched Stars (and I have a bad memory) but I remember it does have an episode on Galaxia's origins so maybe I will see that daemon-thing again there. Thanks.

There're several random scenes of random demons in various OPs of various seasons - I'd suggest not thinking too much about them other than their artistic purpose. :wink:
True, but you can't help but wonder what Sailor Moon would have been like had these demonic elements actually been more explicit and present in the series instead of being imagery.

As much as I love the Classic episode where Sailor Moon and the others were sent back to the Silver Millennium, I always thought the recap scenes in the episode where Mamoru is kidnapped showed a much more dynamic and intense attack. I am disappointed it was artistic license and not a literal retelling. Can you imagine if our heroes had to actually go up against this?

I used to watch Sailor Moon in italian and they had their own composed songs and the opening material was edited together from the original openings and some episodes. Back then I didn't know Sailor Moon had many different openings, so I thought those scenes were actually from episodes I missed to watch. Later on I was a bit disappointed to find out that they where just a placeholder. The battle between Serenity and those purple demons in the 2nd opening looks epic!

^ Yeah, those random demons in the OPs often look more epic & menacing than many MOTDs in the actual episodes. lol

This imagery doesn't suit shoujo anime at all.

May be its the strain of keeping that transformation since he's not fully awakened.

Also he's got a lot of 1 time use attacks like his evil version of using black purplish roses to ensnare and electrocute :usagi: and throwing multiple roses to cancel out Rubeus' energy spheres.

But my favorite one is (and I believe that this is the anime 90's version of La Smoking Bomber) a chain of roses ala Blackheart.

There's still that other member within the Blackmoon clan we used to speculate about.
