Usagi Tsukino is still struggling to balance her home life with the duties of being Sailor Moon, the guardian of love and justice. Along with the other Sailor Guardians and her boyfriend Mamoru Chiba, they begin investigating cases of students from Mugen Academy, a school for the most elite students, who are being transformed into monsters. During the investigation, they meet three strange individuals: Haruka Tenou, a handsome racecar driver; Michiru Kaiou, a talented violinist; and Hotaru Tomoe, a mysterious girl with a weak constitution.

As more incidents occur, the Sailor Guardians are met with another surprise—the appearance of two new planetary protectors with motives of their own. Despite the newcomers' questionable allegiance to Usagi and her comrades, they all face a threat from a common enemy: an evil entity who calls himself Pharaoh 90.

You can check out my review of the previous seasons here:

Generally an improvement on seasons 1 + 2, season 3 of Sailor Moon Crystal is a great anime held back by a lack of character development.

This season follows my favorite arc in Sailor Moon - the Infinity arc. This arc is definitely a much darker feeling arc - with some interesting nihilistic-feeling mysteries that would not feel too out of place in a Madoka Magika spinoff. I mean, it's still sailor moon - so don't get over hyped; but if you've been hoping for a bit more lore, the Infinity arc has you covered.

Mixed Feelings
**Warning: English is not my first language**

Sailor Moon S3 shows itself as an improvement from its previous seasons (Both art and music were certainly something to work with, CGI was ruining everything this thing stands for) and a remake of its classic 90s counterpart. Working with such a classic as Sailor Moon will get high expectations from everybody, and it did keep us hype about possibilities.

So, it's quite disappointing to find that Crystal S3 couldnt handle that hype properly. Instead, S3 seems a lot rushed (It's only 13 episodes, so of course pace will be faster), even though it had a really nice arc to ...

When I wrote my review of the first season, I decided to pretend I’d never heard of Sailor Moon before. And I stand by that review. Even more so now that I’ve watched season three. Complaint number one, the amount of time this show spends on assembling the characters. If you watch the opening sequence, you know eventually Sailor Pluto arrives. At least Neptune and Uranus are the mysterious new characters from the onset. But it takes so long to introduce her one wonders why she was included on the opening. Complaint number two is pacing. I am willing to bet if you removed the ...
