Welcome back to another episode of Sailor Moon: Reincarnation is Magic! The last episode had our born again Moon Princess fighting off a really interesting villain who inadvertently was getting in the way of two people finding true love in one another! It was actually a pretty nice change of pace from the formula the show was falling into where Usagi remained pretty much oblivious to the evil machinations of the villains until she finally confronts them at the scene of the crime. So what’s the story for THIS episode? Usagi will remain pretty much oblivious to the evil machinations of the villain until she finally confronts them at the scene of the crime. Well, I guess they can’t ALL be original stories, so maybe they’ll find an interesting angle with what it is the villains will try to exploit this time. Let’s find out!!
The episode begins with Usagi frantically trying to get to school before the bell rings yet again. I mean sure, she’s fighting for humanity’s survival every night, but she should really invest in a louder alarm clock or something. Along her route, she runs past an advertisement and, as any good consumer would do, stops to stare at it and contemplate purchasing the product.
