Usagi and Chibiusa overhear two girls talking about the Sailor Senshi after they see a poster. Humorously, as the girls discuss which is the smartest, most elegant, strongest, and the leader of the Senshi, Usagi claims those titles for herself. Chibiusa shakes her head at Usagi's delusion. Clips are shown from the debut of each Sailor Senshi, and that girl's image song is played in the background. When even Tuxedo Mask is mentioned, and the girls go to leave without having mentioned Sailor Moon, Usagi butts in on their conversation and asks them directly about Sailor Moon. The girls give a series of glowing compliments about Sailor Moon, but unlike they did for the other Senshi, they also list her faults. After the girls leave, Usagi sarcastically apologises for being a clumsy cry-baby and then bursts into tears.
I did not see a review for this so I decided to write one.
Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon R: Make Up! Sailor Senshi is a Sailor Moon special that probably showed right before Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon R: The Movie. For some reason MyAnimeList thought it would cute to explain everything that happens in the synopsis. So if you haven't read it yet don't it's major spoiler. Also this special and review is for people that have watched the original series and R. If you have yet to watch those go watch them and come back. This special is only 17 minutes so don't expect a
long winded review.
I was surprised to see such an iconic series as Sailor Moon to have something unreviewed. Somehow this little special seems to have gotten pushed into obscurity. I love Sailor Moon and rated the previous two seasons a 10/10 so I was excited to see I would be able to review something of it (I only review the unreviewed). But sadly this special was lacking and rather boring.
The single episode consists of various scenes from the anime with some new ones mixed. This feels more like a recap than anything and I hate recaps. The special has two girls talking about the Sailor Senshi while Usagi listens. While they talk about the characters it shows some scenes from the previous seasons. The girls pretty much just explain the personalities of the characters and by this point you should definitely know how each character is. This was really boring and I was constantly thinking "when will this be over?" The new scenes mixed in are not exceptionally entertaining as well. I gave the art a 6/10. I like the Sailor Moon style and 90s vibe but it's still like 80% scenes I've seen before. I usually dislike rewatching stuff and it pissed me off. I gave sound a 6/10 too. As the girls talk about Sailor Moon and Co. the character's image songs play. I didn't really pay attention to them but they weren't that exciting. The whole thing is mediocre.
Sadly I do not really have anything good to say. I watched this because it was a quick add, Sailor Moon, and I could review it. I only recommend this if you are currently experiencing amnesia and don't remember how the characters act. Or if you for some reason enjoy recaps that don't really recap anything.
