We’re back with another episode of Sailor Moon Z! The last episode managed to really kick the story into high gear which was good considering that several of the episodes prior to that ground everything to a screeching halt as we circled around the same plot points with no real forward momentum. Ironically, the show that is known for going too damn fast ended up slowing things down TOO much. Does this episode finally find a happy medium between the two, or is the concept of a properly paced episode of Crystal as likely as Uranus’s and Neptune’s actions actually making any sense? Let’s find out!!
The episode begins where the last one left off, mainly with the non-royal family members beating the hell out of each other and the Doublemint Twin Witches bragging about it. Fortunately, the Holy Grail has just materialized and has the power to release the Scouts from the mind control spell the witches had cast on them. Not only that, but the Outer Senshi’s talismans (Aqua Mirror, Space Sword, and Garnet Orb) are all reacting to the Holy Grail and getting a significant power boost! Yeah, Sailor Moon would only get in the way MY ASS!!
