How About PGSM?

I recommend it as the best version of Dark Kingdom arc
Aside from Sailor Luna and other elements that I consider cons
A couple of pros it has the best Rei and probably my favorite Ami I love beryl and the shittenou here too
Also a competent version of tuxedo

There are but YouTube tends to delete so you gotta strike when the iron is hot
I think in the drama section crunchyroll has them, at least they did in '07 when I finished it ^_^'

I personally love all the versions of Usagi. I think they all have their own strengths and weaknesses and no one version is going to be perfect. I love that Usagi is more mature n the manga and Crystal but I was also always inspired by Usagi's pacifist ideals in the original anime.

My main issue with Manga or Crystal Usagi is how every character, from her friends to even sometimes her enemies, revere her... Sometimes even worship her to the point where it feels a little unrealistic.

Like, putting aside how little development we see the relationships between Usagi and the Inners get in the manga (at least you know they spent considerable time together during the Silver Millennium, so arguably their bonds cross over spacetime)...Why exactly did the Outers look up to Princess Serenity during the Silver Millennium? They never met the girl. In fact, it's weird to me that they wouldn't even be a little bit bitter towards the fact that their Queen made them fight in complete and total isolation since they were possibly children. Don't get me wrong, I love Haruka's interactions with Usagi in the manga and Crystal and how it's refreshingly less antagonistic, but it made me cringe when the Outers said that Princess Serenity was their light of hope during the elevator scene because it felt completely unearned... And this is one of Naoko's biggest flaws as a writer.

That said, the '90s anime had like the total opposite problem where the jokes toward Usagi would sometimes go a little too far. I love that the original anime portrayed Usagi as imperfect. I VASTLY prefer flawed and imperfect characters vs. characters that seem to embody flawless ideals (not accusing Manga!Usagi of this before someone gets hysterical). But at the same time, some of the jokes went too far for a cheap gag.

It's like both series never managed to find a healthy balance with the two. Except for PGSM!Usagi, who honestly is much more realistic than her manga and anime counterparts (so much so that sometimes she appears less brave than her other counterparts... But I find that refreshing.)

It's obvious that 90's Usagi is the clear winner!

Classic Usagi is what made me fall in love with her & her character development.
