THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
"It's the moon".
So it begins this episode...

It's pretty quiet on that moon tbh and it looks like they found a sword. Queen Serenity is beautiful in this episode imo and she reminds a bit of Usagi's past. I'm curious to see more of that since she apparently had a history with Mamoru.

Queen Beryl gives me a bad feeling since she wants to use Tuxedo Mask rather than getting rid of him. Welp, it's also revealed about the truth regarding the princes as well. Leave it to Usagi to save the day though along with the others although I got a bad feeling about Bery's new servant..

Finally a good episode. Though this thing with Shitennou is rather strange. I dunno if they stay evil till the last episode, or not.

I say this anime so far is adding a lot more to what the manga did since it was only Kunzite in the original material.

Well they are no longer just hinting at the guardian and king pairings anymore, which will probably upset some people.

Ok, I can see the logic why they re-arranged things between Shitennou. But I was surprised that they were paired with the 4 Senshins, and how handsome they were

Too much this about this episode:

1. I like the face of Usagi's dad when she says that ths silver crystal is somehow a present of her boyfriend.

2. The past about Endymion and Princess Serenity is really tragic but you know In the original anime has its own charming. I mean, Maybe Serenity did not comite suicide like in this version, but is also sad.

3. ABout the 4 generals, O.o Yhe truth about the 4 has finally revealed.

So Jadeite, Kunzite, Nephrite, and Zoizite finally remembered who they were and who their master was, but Queen Berul brainwashed them again.

I don't remember Princess Serenity dying like that in the original show. Still sad that in this show Endymion died in front of Princess Serenity.

So Venus said something about then falling in love, I assume she meant falling in love with the 4 generals.

Heh I guess Takeuchi-sensei has finally gotten her wish regarding the Shitennou. I wonder why it was never included even in the manga I mean it's her original plan all along right?

1. How the hell the astronomers haven't found the palace on the Moon until now? (Before someone claims it: The palace isn't at the back side of the Moon.)
2. How come Usagi's father wasn't shocked and didn't question her when he saw such a big and precious crystal under Usagi's possession?
3. How the f-ck they could breath on the Moon??
4. How was the park and streets so empty and silent? Wasn't there even one homeless loser sleeping in a bench? The background details are as bad as they are in Fate Stay Night.

Bit of a slow "information" episode. Nothing surprising happened... I just don't recall things going down quite like this in classic.

It just isn't worth saying "In the name of the moon, I will punish you." if you don't do the pose with it!

That's probably because Crystal doesn't have much to do with the classic anime, but is a 'one chapter per one episode' adaptation of the manga instead, with some changes approved by the manga author herself. There'll be many more HUGE differences in the future, many plot points and characters that the classic changed or cut out, so look forward to some more surprises.

i loved the outfits they had before they went to the moon.

some of the details are new from their past...well to me at least. The scene from when Serenity sneaked out and then came back to her protective guardians, was cute and funny. :) so cute love it.!

wow, this episode is so full of win. The girls kicked ass. And now we see why they didn't kill of those guys, they were intended to be kept as past life loves of the girls. I love how the girls are so much stronger in this version than the original. The story is totally different, same plot, or was it vice versa?? heh...anyways
I just am glad of this outcome.

and now Endymion is under the b***h's control....great!...not... :P

I wonder if the knights will start remembering again, since I did see their gems totally not blocked/bricked.

I friggin love the art too! it looks so pretty! specially when she is in Serenity mode...:) <333

Lately I have been reading Sailor Moon because I don't want wait Crystal, but I find very weak the end of the Dark Kingdom Arc. But I like this episode more that in the manga (the queen departure, the Shitennou past, so many feels there) , so hope that the next episodes be like this.

And Usagi is so strong now. In the original anime I saw until the episode when appear weird princess of the D Kingdom and I never like Usagi there. In fact I like that she is so cheerful and goofy, but it is great that she also have so strong resolution when it is necessary.

Another very solid episode that showed us what remained of the Moon Kingdom and revealed even more about the past especially in regards to the generals and girls. Now I understand why Venus was always calling out to Kunzite (aka eye banging him) during their skirmishes. The fight itself wasn't much but it looks like the gloves are coming off in the next episode. I expect to hear many high-pitched cries of "Mamo-chan" and "Endymion" from Usagi. However, I don't want to wait two weeks...

Lots of parts of Tokyo are very empty late at night and very early in the morning. (I'm not talking about places like the Ginza or Shinjuku or the Tsukiji Market.) I've wandered around Tokyo in the wee early hours of the morning ( like 3 AM to 5 AM) thanks to jet lag and I haven't seen a soul in lots and lots of areas. Parks in particular.

(Actually, lots of parks in Tokyo are pretty empty even during the daytime on weekdays, except for those where homeless folks camp out.)

Come 8:55 or so, all Hell breaks loose as everyone rushes out of subway stations on their way to they 9AM jobs...

I'm curious as to why they are keeping all the Shitennou alive. At this point in the manga they are all dead except for Kunzite. I guess so they could show that part where they remember being in love with the Sailor Guardians?
Still very enjoyable though. 4/5

You know what I've been wondering? Why we never learn anything about the moon KING, since I doubt moon people can ignore biology and just let Queen Serenity have a baby without a Mate. Who was he? What happened to him?

Solid 5. Animation has really smoothed out by now, and while not the best it could possibly be, it's no longer a major distraction. Story and plot are moving along nicely. The first episodes were clunky but pacing has been much better, especially in ep 8 and ep 10.

I am also glad to see that Naoko got her wish about the Shittenou, although I figured as much considering certain changes we'd already seen. I recognize it's a divergence from the source material, but seeing as it was already headcanon for the author, I really don't have a problem with it.

Discussions of the Shittenou under the tag.


Very happy to see the suicide shown (as twisted as that sounds, I know). I was worried that they'd censor the story to make it friendlier as they did in the original, but they stayed true and let it be. It's an incredibly tragic story, and unfortunately there's only more tragedy to come. SM is the kind of story that punches you in the feels. And this episode did a really good job of doing it.

My only complaint is that when Venus announced that they'd fallen in love on Earth it felt kind of rushed/forced/hammy. I get that they kind of wanted all of it in there this episode, but it just felt a little weird to me. And since that's my only real complaint here, I'm genuinely happy because it was such a minor thing. It's good to see this show finally come into its own a bit.

A solid episode, Usagi got a lot of good development. I loved the flashbacks in this episode, they were pretty emotional and well done. The four Knights remember their pasts, but will that change anything? Mamoru/Endymion under Queen Beryl's control is not a good sign either, can't wait to see what happens next.

Well now the Generals past is known, the question will be do they die. I don't like how their lives are so tied down into their pasts. Its like their current lives mean absolutely nothing.

Quick question was the manga as exaggerated and ridiculous as this anime?
"Hey the moon has absolutely no oxygen and only 1/6th of earths gravity." 10 seconds later they walk and talk on the surface. U guise ok?

Shitennou remembering their past before being brainwashed again. It's great that they have more part in this adaptation compared to the manga. What remains to be seen now is how they will break free from Dark Kingdom.

From the preview, it looks like Sailor Venus' full transformation sequence will finally happen. Now we have to wait for 3 weeks for that. What on earth will make the studios schedule it as a weekly anime instead?

This show is my first contact with the SM franchise, and although it has it's flaws, I'm actually enjoying it. Still, I'm not really looking forward to this Shitennou subplot. I was aware they died in both the manga and the classic anime, but even though I thought they had kept them alive so the Sailor Warriors would have to fight them individually, it seems silly to point out the girls' feelings towards them now.
The first half was really good, but I was a bit disappointed about this.
Now, they're teenage warriors who just managed to get to the moon by using their super powers. I don't think anyone is expecting real world physic laws to show up here.

I never liked the manga version of Serenity's death, too much being 'Romeo & Juliet' like, old anime did it better imo.

But wow, so they actually responded Generals x Senshi picture, wonder what they are going to do with it now. Hopefully not much forced drama, huh.

Very handsome indeed.

Honestly I can't remember much of SM except few major plot points/scenes since I watched most of it when I was very young, so it feels very new. I liked this episode quite a lot though, and I also actually enjoy Usagi's VA when she doesn't use her screechy, sharp, and childish voice. She sounds great when Usagi was super serious and saved the sailor senshi. But oh dear, next episode will not be fun with Mamoru being manipulated...

So 2 things I don't remember (or never knew because I only watched the anime and I've never read the manga):
1. The "ite" dudes were Prince Endymion's knights
2. Princess Serenity killed herself

Not a bad episode. I still think the original version is better, though. The animation quality has been going noticeably downhill...

The same happened with the episode 5, when Makoto/Jupiter was introduced, if I'm not mistaking. Compared to the earlier episodes, that one was much better in terms of quality/animation. I think the next episode will look very good. We'll see :)
