Super Recaps: Sailor Moon Crystal (Episode 16)

Has it been a fortnight already?  Well we find ourselves with yet another episode of Sailor Moon Crystal!!  Will the show continue its upward swing from the last episode, or will reality come crashing down once again to remind us that we’re watching a rushed and under budgeted remake that doesn’t understand why COPYING THE MANGA EXACTLY TO A TV SHOW ISN’T A GOOD IDEA!!  We can only hope for the former.  Let’s get started!!

The episode begins with a recap of Sailor Mars getting kidnapped by the big bads of this story arc.  Sailor Moon is clearly upset but notices that Chibi-Usa is standing off to the side.  Usagi confronts the brat and demands to know what’s going on!

The episode begins with Usagi firing off her Moon Staff thingy at Queen Metalia which reduces the would-be tyrant to dust.  No wait, it does diddly squat.
