ACT 0 [Sailor V]
  • [sorry, this took me awhile my mom had to take me somewhere]
  • I mean.... if you squint a little and look from a specific angle, I agree, Artemis does indeed look exactly like a hill myna bird. Has anyone noticed that. :artemis:
  • A cat fell from the sky dressed Minako in lingerie and told her to "Do exactly as I say" I like where this is going :happy::minako:
  • What's that.... blue stuff in Shingo's breakfast. :blueghost:
  • "Go-Bangs?"
  • The police need their own series.
  • Akai needs a Snickers bar.
  • "It's Hanako. That's sexual harassment!"
  • "REVENGE" I'm worried what this cop's gonna do when he get his hands on robbers.
  • Sailor "N" ..... not even gonna
  • AW YEAH, MY FAVORITE INTRO MUSIC :
  • "This TOTALLY feels like a place a thief would target." :kiss: ...I'm starting to wonder how so many robberies are happening.
  • "We've got a grudge against Sailor V" She literally started just yesterd-
  • :usagi:: [Throws the fire hydrant and eats the key]. SHE'S MY SPIRIT ANIMAL!!!:mameshiba:
  • One of the robbers start dance fighting Minako
  • It wasn't effective at all.
  • :artemis::" That girl, could she be... -Yes Artemis she's gonna kill you all one day :wow:
  • "I sent my soul soaring". - I bet he just looked them up on the internet. :|
    So that VERY MOMENT Minako CGI'd past Tuxedo Mask was when she became an Angsty matyr queen.
[Hina afterwards]
  • She's an actor and falls in love w/ Mamoru's secret long lost twin.
[Tuxedo Mask's birth]
  • So, Mamoru ran away from home & some magician guy purposely tripped him. Caressed his arm :siren:. Cheered him up with cartwheels [that was sweet]. Preformed a "magic trick" on him while no one's watching ::eeklez:. And inspired Mamoru to "train" long enough to transform.... Somehow....
  • Wow and I though Sailor V had an interesting backstory :wow:
So you already know that he literally looks like that ( ::tuxspeedmask: ) in one of the shorts coming w/ the prequel?:)
Yes, you can NEVER escape his Tuxedo A**
  • ::tuxspeedmask:: Alright, might as well rob a jewelry store :-P
  • The man still watches Mamoru from the bushes to this day. :)
  • [I may edit this more later]

This! :cool:

AW YEAH, MY FAVORITE INTRO MUSIC :
They should include that on an OST disc for the show.

She's an actor and falls in love w/ Mamoru's secret long lost twin.
It's nice that they didn't forget her & gave her a new life after the breakup. :)

The man still watches Mamoru from the bushes to this day. :)
Would be great if he'd also appear as a cameo from time to time in the main series. :D

Overall thoughts:
  • I love it. ::love:: very happy it exists for the franchise
  • How the series had incorporated each of the girls' individual lives into the story.
  • The idol direction they went w/ Minako. It made her especially stand out. I love how they use it to show the effects she and her songs have on others spirit. :minako:
  • I like that we got physical Sailor V sightings/interactions early on. I wish the 90s version gave Sailor V more presence in season 1 [I haven't considered whether it would be a good decision or not, just thinking]
  • I enjoyed the whole decoy princess plot. I feel REALLY stupid I thought Sailor Venus could actually be the princess. I was thinking: "Ohhhh they're really changing things up this time around" [I'm so stupid :googly:]
  • The humor was perfect for me. :happy:
  • I adore that they had the girls think about their past lives this time. Like Usagi being upset that she could possibly not be Ikuko's daughter. or Mako coming to the conclusion that it was her destiny to be alone forever based on her previous life :grey:.
  • Their take on Princess serenity with her being responsible for the end of the Earth many previous times, it felt especially interesting to me how they used a calming elegance of her harp and her heroic theme when she appears as a sign of impending doom. There's something about the dissonance of it all:usagi:

  • OTHER STUFF
  • Usagi having to isolate her self.
  • Beryl's relationship w/ the Generals. It felt more interesting to me how she wanted them to do it 'For her sake'. In the OG It felt kinda silly when Jadeite had Important info, she just killed him [although I found it hilarious the way they used it in the Quiz #2 audio drama where she banishes Zoisite then the next question asks who were the monsters that killed Nephrite's exact names and she's all like: "Fuuuuuuuuuuudge Zoisite would've known that wouldn't he:P"]
  • Kunzites whole deal.
  • Mio - EVERYTHING about Mio :whee:
  • Darkury was fine I guess but, I wished the relationship they planted for her, and Nephrite were more explored. I mostly liked its ending :ami:
  • I'll be honest. Once Mamoru left for London[I think] I didn't care AT ALL for what he had going on until he returned back.
  • Mako/Motoki's relationship was nice. Wished they had more time to go into it though. :mako::hug:
  • I was perfectly fine with Sailor Luna. she didn't really do much, but I don't dislike her or anything. Had some funny moments. Transformation's kind of suspicious though. :luna::creeper:
  • Sailor V's backstory was an absolute delight!
  • Jupiter's dangerous decision being the sight that gets Sailor Venus to ease up on the whole "destiny" thing. :mako::minako:
  • Venus and Mars's opposition :rei::minako:
  • [may add more]

  • [Rewards or something]
Favorite episode: "Act 14", "Act 0", "Special Act", "Act 30",
honorable mentions: "Act 35", "Act 36", "Act 43", "most other episodes honestly"
Favorite battles: "
Rei vs Night Youma [ACT 33]", "Serenity vs QB & Generals [ACT 36]

Questions: [honestly none of these matter to me]
  • Did they answer why Kunzite was a human?
  • What was Minako's condition. Did she have it in her past life? :minako::sick:
  • Mamo and Motoki's ages?::tuxspeedmask:
  • Mio's resurrection? [I headcannon their universe just DECIDED there wasn't enough Mio in the world]
  • Did that cop in "Act 0" ever get "revenge."?
  • Did Darkury have the students brain washed or was she just talking to empty husks. :ami:
  • Did Rei just live by herself in a shrine for all those years? :rei:
  • Who killed Endymion but just left Serenity there? Did she kill the other person? :usagi:
  • How did Mercury jump those buildings in "Act 14" :ami::creeper:
  • How did the others reach Beryl near the end. Was there like.... a shortcut?
  • Where's Queen Serenity in all this!? Was she just chilling every time Earth ended? :usagi:
  • Did Kamekichi ever hook up w/ Marylin? ::love::

CHARACTERS: [part 1]
  • :usagi:: I really love her infectious personality. I wish we got more schemes from her; I thought those parts were hilarious. I like how they eventually use her personality against her [Mio using her kindness to put her in cruel situations and her emotions fueling Matalia for example] I'm not completely sure whether I prefer her to 90s Anime Usagi but I'm not sure if it's completely fair since it has over 200 episodes worth of content for that one.
  • I think her actor did an amazing job considering her portrayal of Usagi and Serenity. I really felt like they were two entirely different characters.
  • :ami:: I do like Ami and really dig where they were going w/ her early on. It just seemed like they didn't have enough time to focus on her later on. I felt the arcs she goes through resonated with me more than the 90s version I kind of wish we could see a version of Ami that mixes her 90s self w/ her behaviors/arcs in PGSM. I adore her dynamic with Usagi! I just don't remember her interacting w/ the others that much [as they don't really have enough time to]. I would LOVE to see her interact with Mio with how protective she is of Usagi.
  • I think her actor did good. Not much to say specifically
  • :rei:: This Rei is quite different from 90s Rei. I felt mostly engaged w/ her dynamic with Venus the most and as 90s Mako said" The more you argue the closer you get" [or something like that]. I admire that they went into her relationship with her father! I never thought I would see that. I especially like how she was able to open up to the others [like I wasn't expecting to see her wear makeup at that slumber party :kiss:]
  • Her actor did great. I especially liked her emotional scenes.
  • :mako:: While I do feel like Ilike the 90s counterpart more. Everything about this one still felt like it made sense to me. l REALLY appreciate [running out of synonyms for like] that they delved into how her family life affects her mindset. The built up of her relationship with Motoki was also nice. And she still got that Mama bear feel :kero: [I don't even dislike Mamo, but I liked how they went far enough to have her sock him in the face] She also had some really funny moments as well.
  • Her actor also did good.
  • Felt a bit stoic for me but still did a great job like everyone else]
  • :minako:: I enjoyed every scene of her. I also appreciated her passion for her idol...ness. Her relationship with Artemis was also really sweet, I wish we could see more of them two. Not sure where I stand if I compare her to 90s Venus though as she's also quite different. I may actually like this one more but as I said I'm not sure where I stand. She also didn't have time to interact w/ Ami [same for the 90s version] she doesn't exactly feel friendly with Ami, they feel more ...."friendsly" if you will. [look it up]
  • As I said I enjoyed every scene of her.

[May add more in edit also wait for part 2]

CHARACTERS: [part 2]
  • ::tuxspeedmask::I mostly like him when he interacts with other characters. I wish he could still have more positive downtime with Usagi.
  • Jadeite: It DEFINATELY feels like he has more going for him in this version. Mostly his whole deal w/ Queen Beryl. This one's also younger than the 90s one and the only thing that one had going on was he possible relationship w/ that one monster. I wish he had more of a dynamic with the other generals though.
  • Nephrite: I like this one w/ his anger issues and stuff. It's just the 90s version's arc had got me feeling much more emotionally invested towards the end of his arc. BUT I enjoyed this one's general personality more than the 90s version. If this was animated, they NEED to have Neflite's actor he'd be perfect w/ that rough voice. I wish we got more of Nefukichi P-:
  • Zoisite: I Really enjoyed Zoisite as a villain but when he gets on Endymion's side I didn't care as much at all. His "death" still affected me though. Also, 90s Zoisite is one of my favorites. :mameshiba:
  • Kunzite: I like this one more. He was INCREDIBLY threatening. You could feel his presence wherever he went. Probably my favorite actor.
  • Mio: She's delightfully malnutritious! I've always enjoyed comedic mean-girl characters and Mio's just so perfectly unhinged. I wish we got more of her. :whee:
  • Queen Beryl: As I said I like this one more than the 90s one. Her actions and behavior feel more complex. I think this ones especially engaging. :kiss:
  • Motoki: I found him really funny albeit a little too over the top sometimes. His relationship with Mako was really nice to see unfold. :yoshi::mako: plus he's a great wing man for Kamekichi :thumbsup:.
  • Ikuko: She funny. I like her :cool:.
  • Naru: She feels the most similar to her 90s counterpart in my head [not sure how good of a measurement that is :unsure:]. I like them both about the same It feels like they could both be in each other's situations and not too much would change. I do wish the 90s version could clarify if she knew Usagi was Sailor Moon as that episode near the end of R implied.
  • :artemis:: He's adorable!!! OMG!!!
  • :luna:: She's good too. I don't have much of any distaste for her human form either. [still transformations kind of suspicious]

What was Minako's condition.
I think it's implied that she had a problem in her brain, possibly a brain tumor - X-ray films of the brain were also shown near her when she was hospitalized.

Did Kamekichi ever hook up w/ Marylin? ::love::
Are you their shipper? lol

Questions: [honestly none of these matter to me]
  • Did they answer why Kunzite was a human?
Personally, i think they all were at one point. Even Beryl. Beryl gets reincarnated after the Princess goes kablooie, finds Metallia and reawakens as her former self, and then finds the other four.

My guess is Kunzite was still human because she knew he'd be the most resistant to her will. Only wake him up if it were absolutely necessary.

No particular proof, but it would utilize some of the existing lore from the manga, so it's not out of the question.

Kirari Super Live :
  • Is that Matalia's voice?
  • Usagi: Oh no I'm late - Audience:
  • C'est La Vie - I still pronouce it as "Saila Vee":minako:
  • The kids constantly saying their names during the performance.:keke:
  • Sakura Fubiki - very different tone compared to the other songs. "There is no god" :grey:
  • Here We Go- That arm thing they do was cool.
  • Katagusi Ni Itinsei [probably spelled it wrong]- *Any character does anything* Kids: OMG, HAVE MY BABIES! :dance:
  • Romance- I thought this song would be called "Baby Baby", This is appropriate for kids,
  • Kunzite: "The energy in the theater has reached its peak. Especially these distinguished mothers in the front row"
  • Zoisite just air pianoing. He's putting so much passion in it too!
  • Nephrites random cape-flip at 40:53
  • So many kids want to be taken hostage ::eeklez:
  • A heavenly light shined when the kid wished Mamoru luck! Coincidence, I think not!::tuxspeedmask:
  • Human :luna: appears. - The kids: :yay::dance::bow:
  • Sweet little Resistance - I don't even. I liked the song more than I expected.
  • :luna:: "If you peer into their hearts, boys are strange creatures"
    Ok she has a point.
  • 51:32 - 52:00 the adults laughing at the end after the kids' reactions was the cherry on top :lol:
  • "Kirari Sailor Dream" [Sae] - I've never seen a seen a solo performance so I wasn't sure how what she was going to do for parts w/ no singing. I think she did a very good job!
  • Luna's fight was hilarious [58:02]
  • Aw the kids telling Luna to hang in there.
  • [59:15 -59:19] ..... At least he tried.
  • [1:01:45] :minako: to Zoisite]: For a confident guy, sou sure are pale! - ..... Dang.
  • Friend
  • 1:11:08 - He's dancing like he's forced to this.
  • Too bad Mio didn't get to appear and sing.
My favorites, not in order: "C'est La Vie", "Sakura Fubiki", "Romance" and "Kirari Sailor Dream"
:mako::ami::usagi::minako::rei::luna:

^ That occasion is pretty memorable!

Personally, i think they all were at one point. Even Beryl. Beryl gets reincarnated after the Princess goes kablooie, finds Metallia and reawakens as her former self, and then finds the other four.
I wonder if her reincarnated human form still has that Afro hair. :lol:

The kids constantly saying their names during the performance.:keke:
That's just like the audience calling the names of their favorite group members during performances of idol groups. lol

Romance- I thought this song would be called "Baby Baby"
The same as Sailor Star Song being called "Makenai" by many fans. lol

So many kids want to be taken hostage ::eeklez:
One kid was spooked by Kunzite & cried, tho (while his mom was laughing frantically lol ).

Human :luna: appears. - The kids: :yay::dance::bow:
That pretty much proves that the introduction of the character is a totally correct (business) decision, even tho she's hated by many older fans. :cool:

"Kirari Sailor Dream" [Sae] - I've never seen a seen a solo performance so I wasn't sure how what she was going to do for parts w/ no singing. I think she did a very good job!
She's the only performer who didn't lip-sync in that live show. :cool:

1:11:08 - He's dancing like he's forced to this.
He's got that "what the heck I'm doing here" feel XD - in contrast, Kunzite looks pretty enjoying it. lol

Too bad Mio didn't get to appear and sing.
Agreed, & she'd be the only other performer who didn't need to lip-sync. :)
