Super Recaps: Sailor Moon Crystal (Episode 19)

We’re back with another episode of everyone’s favorite remake of a much more beloved series form the nineties!  Last time around, the remaining Scouts were actually able to prevent another kidnapping and Chibi-Usa finally decided to tell everyone what the heck was going on.  The story arc overall has been pretty good, but last episode was definitely starting to wear thin, what with it basically repeating what made the episodes before it so good.  Will this episode take the series in a new direction to inject some life into it, or are we in for yet another downward spiral into mediocrity and broken dreams?  Let’s find out!!

The episode begins with everyone reeling over the drama bomb that Chibi-Usa just exploded in their faces.  For those who don’t recall, she reveals that she came here from the 30th century to try and get Sailor Moon to save the future from some terrible disaster that befalls it.

“There was this guy named Sombra, and he messed things up for EVERYONE.”

Super Recaps: Sailor Moon Crystal (Episode 18)

We’re back with another episode of Dark of the Black Moon!  For the past few weeks, we’ve basically had the same story but they’ve used that time to give some development to the Scouts who AREN’T princesses which I guess makes them less important.  Still, the formula seems to have gotten stale already and we running out of Sailor Scouts to kidnap.  Will Minako get kidnapped like the other three Scouts, or will they finally be able to take the offensive against the Black Moon clan who’s been kicking their asses on a regular basis for the last three episodes?  Let’s find out!!

The episode begins with the remaining members of Team Sailor Moon mourning the loss of Sailor Jupiter to the evil machinations of the Black Moon.  How bad have things gotten for them?  They actually give Artemis some screen time!

“Holy crap!  I get to be in an episode for once!!”

Super Recaps: Sailor Moon Crystal (Episode 17)

We’re back with another episode of Sailor Moon Crystal and boy is getting harder to wait those two weeks for another episode!  With the stakes getting high and the writing getting sharper, are we in for another great episode of this born again series, or is this this the beginning of an inevitable spiral downwards into mediocrity and animation cutbacks?  Let’s find out!!

The episode begins in the aftermath of Sailor Mercury’s kidnapping.  The scouts are now down two members and none of them have any idea what these new foes are after or how to strike back against them.  This causes Usagi to be mopey in her room once again (she’s been REALLY sad this story arc) and so Chibi-Usa’s freaky cat head thingy tries to cheer her up.

“KILL IT WITH FIRE!!  Oh great.  NOW I thought of Rei again and that makes me sad…”
