Disguised as their "Ginga" counterparts, they entered for a round of the game with Mamoru and Usagi.
And with this, we get our first good look at the "love square" between Usagi, Mamoru, Seijuurou, and Natsumi.
During the course of this, the plan is unleashed, and it is later revealed that Mamoru is not the Knight of the Moonlight. Toru Furuya did a nice job of making his voice deeper for the Knight.
So, he isn't Mamoru/Endymion after all. Hmmm...
Once again, I have problems with the title. It addresses an issue that was revealed much later in the episode (around seventeen minutes in). Therefore the title is misleading, inevitably making you assume that was what the episode would focus on the entire way through. But, no, that was not even part of the main plot; the Soldiers still were able to defeat the Cardian without the tiara. However it is probably an important point. But I just don't think such a small trifle was important enough to be featured in an episode title where it did not focus on that aspect at all with the exception of a mere few seconds.
Dude, you are preaching to the choir on this.
Shingo and Usagi's father were actually very much active in this episode, and it was nice to see them back in action after that "family trip" episode. And although Usagi's mother was not active, we still saw here quite a bit more than we usually get to.
I liked this too. Seeing Kenji actually try to put up a fight against the Cardian, as well as seeing all of the main three males in Usagi's life at this point (Shingo, Kenji, and Mamoru) interacting together in the same scene.
This was a sole Usagi episode. Haven't seen that in a while, and it really annoyed me how the Soldiers come in at the last minute to save Sailor Moon. They were shown in line before this, but that was it. None of them had very many lines either.
At least they still broke the tradition of them weakening the enemy only for Moon to make the final killing blow. It's nice to see someone other than Moon destroying the monster of the day.
