Oh hey! Episode 5 of Sailor Moon Crystal is out! Guess it’s time to recap episode 4. Yeah I know I’m behind. Give me a break! I’ve been busy! Anyway, let’s take a look!
That’s funny. He doesn’t look like James Spader
anyone? Anyone get that?
Wait… was that guy in the other episodes’ openings? I thought there was only 3 of them.
“USAGI! Were you up all night reading Yaoi again!?” “Well it’s not like I can read it at school!”
Who took that picture!? Weren’t they in alternate dimension or something last episode!? Unless… TUXEDO MASK IS ACTUALLY AN INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER!!!
We’re only 4 eps in. Do we need a recap? Oh yeah, these come out every TWO weeks, so maybe we do.
“It’s economy is not as bad as Kingdom F’s, but it’s GDP can’t compare to Kingdom A’s.”
“Oh crap! We almost held hands! WITHOUT PROTECTION!!!”
Is “Evil” a plural pronoun now? Either that, or the translation team messed up.
What’s wrong with their legs!? They look like they’re about to snap in two!! You’d think that a show THIS high profile would pick up on something like that.
So “Evil” is an organization now? Oh! I bet it’s an Acronym!
“I got engulfed in a torrent of hell fire, and all I got was this lousy should injury.”
You don’t know!? Your putting a lot of time and effort into a plan that has a HUGE ‘maybe’ in it.
“The key to getting in anywhere is walk with confidence and talk down to the bouncer!”
Well you’ve only been there five minutes. Maybe you should try talking to someone? Nah, I’m sure your Prince Charming is going to find you first!
“Shhhh. I prefer it when you don’t speak.”
“A CAT!? Oh HELL no!!”
Guy in drag! PLOT TWIST!! So was this guy hanging out with the Royal Family long enough to gain their trust (without getting an opportunity to grab the crystal), or did the Princess’s protective detail leave her alone with a strange woman?
“Huh. We probably should have prevented that.” “Does this mean we have to kill her?” “Maybe.”
“AN UMBRELLA!? That only works in cartoons!! Why didn’t you make a parachute!?” “Hey! As far as you know, it’s a MAGIC umbrella!” “IS it a magic umbrella!?” “I don’t know!!!!”
Mental note: Holding hands and dancing with someone will create new tiaras.
HOLY CRAP!! That’s not reflected moonlight! That’s a kamehameha!
“Except of course ganging up on you right now while your still novices and don’t have your full team together. Any cost BESIDES that.”
“The hell? Was I kidnapped by cosplayers?”
Fooled you!! Seriously, how are the bad guys a threat if they can’t even do THIS right!? They went out on a pretty big limb here, and the crystal wasn’t even there!
Come on Usagi! You can’t be falling asleep in your costume! Would Batman do that? No!!
I know fairy tales have fed us this crap for years, but there is NO WAY that isn’t creepy.
“SHE CAN’T GIVE CONSENT WHEN SHE’S ASLEEP YOU CREEP!”
Sailor Brunette next episode! Yay!
So that was episode four! It was very sweet at times. Usagi got to go to a fancy party, and even got to dance with a cute guy. Sure, that guy tried to take advantage of her later, but luckily her talking cat was around to look after her. Wait, didn’t that happen in Adventure Time? This was mostly an Usagi episode, so I’m not too bummed out that the other scouts got pushed to the background, but despite the extra attention to her (and Tuxedo Mask) we didn’t get a lot of character development. All that said, it was still a fun episode and was good enough that I don’t mind it pushing back Sailor Brunette’s episode back another two weeks.
