THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
So Mamoru takes the name "Endo" after hypnotizing the real one? How odd.

I feel bad for Usagi because what she has to face now. Same for Luna although I have to say that she is a brave cat. About time Usagi found her resolve to fight back though.

At first, I thought one of Dark Kingdom's top underling is imposing as Mamoru. But then I realized it's probably him actually, just that he's being controlled by Queen Beryl.

It took Luna to go against the fake Mamoru and get injured badly before Usagi regained her resolve to fight. Not that I blame her, since she must be having a difficult time facing someone she loves, even though he's only an imposter.

Decent episode. The only part I didn't like is that, all the other Sailor Guardians got owned a bit too easily. Fake Mamoru is that OP?

Luna took one for the team all because Usagi was having conflicting thoughts over Tuxedo Mask.

Tuxedo Mask returns to Earth but he doesn't appear to be himself. Luna notices he is acting different than usual.

Wonder where Artemis is.

Kind of annoyed me how easily Tuxedo Mask and the other guy beat the girls. I expected more of a fight, but it turned out one sided. Jupiter got knocked out by Mars since she was brainwashed. Hopefully next episode isn't a one sided battle.

Not fake. Just extremely controlled by Queen beryl. Dang, at least she wasn't easily influenced by his "Hypnotic suggestion", although Mako was unfortunately.

ahh now the bad ppls have the silver crystal. WTH is going to happen now!!??

Finally! Feels like forever since a new episode came out.

The Art faltered a bit this episode, but the transformation scenes looked really good. Mamo-chan got the Silver Crystal which is now in Queen Beryl's hands, this can't be good at all. Now we have to wait 2 weeks to see what happens next. :/

I like how Usagi didn't want to fight with Tuxedo Mask even though he hurt her fellow sailor warriors, lol. Way to go, choosing a male you barely know over closest friends. I just remembered why exactly I hated Usagi when I was a child.

It was a solid episode when things weren't repeating themselves in an endless loop. 50% of the episode was Usagi crying and reciting "Mamo-chan, I miss you", "Mamo-chan, is that you?", "Mamo-chan, blah blah?", etc. Real talk here, Usagi. There is only one way to lock him down and it's to bring out this secret weapon:



Also, I didn't like how they went through each Sailor Guardians full transformation sequence. We have to wait 2 weeks for each episode anyway so I'd like for there to not be so much filler/fluff time. Other than that, I'm looking forward to the next episode.

Yeah that wait felt like forever and not much progress happened this time.

To me it just feels like there aren't any stakes in this series compared to the original. I don't feel any tension at all.

Decent episode. The extended transformations are hopefully going to be done with soon. We got a few instant transforms a few episodes back, so I'm hoping we'll revert to that now that we've seen Venus' full transformation.

Plot wise it was okay. Kind of boring but that may be because I knew what was coming. (Though to be fair I pretty much always know what's coming, as I'm sure many here do as well.) But somehow this week it seemed more bland than usual. I am glad to see that egregious animation errors have mostly gone by the wayside.

Mind controlled Mamoru is OP. I know that the Senshi are still mostly new to this and not that strong yet, but this isn't Venus' first rodeo. (And for that matter, where was Artemis?) Also they've had most of their memories unlocked after the trip to the moon. They should be stronger. The only reasonable explanations are either that the magic from Beryl* has made him super OP or that the girls are weaker because they don't want to hurt him. But #2 doesn't make sense because they thought he was a fake -- not that he'd been mind controlled. I don't know, but the fight was very unimpressive.

Luna was whiny. Way too whiny. I'm your partner, Usagi. Don't you love me, Usagi? I understand, you really love him, Usagi. Therefore I'll put myself into harms way so you'll realize that you care about me too. It's almost kind of abusive in a way. And it misses the points that love is not a finite commodity and there are many kinds of love. I don't really think that Luna is aiming to be Usagi's lover. I mean, come on. But she's apparently starved for attention or something.

I mean, I can understand the idea that it would be good to remind Usagi that there are more people (and cats) in her life than just Mamoru considering the circumstances. That makes sense. But why is Luna suddenly (jealously) comparing herself to Mamoru? It's just weird. Like yes, Luna, you're her partner and her babysitter and her friend. But the man she's loved forever is in the hands of the enemy and being manipulated and possibly tortured (as far as she knows). She's drowning in a sea of memories triggered from the Moon Palace. Where, if you recall, she committed suicide in a previous life after her lover was murdered in front of her while defending her. Cut her some slack, damn it. Stop making it all about you.

Well, I kinda knew what was coming but this episode still felt a bit underwhelming. All that pining for Mamo-chan made the episode feel a bit draggy.

At least we finally get Venus' full transformation sequence.

Mind-controlled Mamoru's behavior was so over-the-top evil (and not in the good way) that I cringed several times during this episode.
And he hurt a cat. Mind control or not, nothing will ever redeem you in my eyes, Mamoru.

I am happy that other girls are getting some characterization, although Minako was a bit weird at the beginning. And Ami letting her destroy a diamond... Are you girls all set on forgoing your current lives that strongly?

I didn't mind the full transformation scenes, it's been what, 4 or 5 months since we've seen some of them? I don't mind as long as there's a blend of the abbreviated transformations and the full ones when appropriate for each.

It's really hard to get any momentum going on a series that has such a sparse release schedule, especially when they decide to go tri-weekly for whatever reason. I'm also pretty sure I missed an episode in there somewhere ... I'm starting to think it'd be better to just wait for the series to be over so it can be watched at leisure.

Ah well. Decent enough episode, though the Inner Senshi got bitch-slapped there. Was amused by Sailor Venus asking if she looks suspicious while she's carrying around a huge-ass claymore ...

There is so much random crap thrown around this episode. Why was Makoto the only one to confront Mamoru and Furuhata in the arcade? Where was Artemis during the fight? When Venus was trying to keep Mamoru from the Silver Crystal, it looked like she was the only one doing anything; what were Mercury and Mars doing? Where the heck did Endou go? Why in the world would Usagi just *leave* from Ami's condo? What was the whole point of the "let's break a diamond ring with this big sword" scene? Also, why the hell would you just destroy a *diamond ring* like that? Where did Ami even get that?

Also, I feel like the animation was even worse than before. How is it that the episodes are released so infrequently that the animation quality is so poor? And this is also considering the amount of time being filled up by stock footage, like the long transformation sequences.

UGH. I had such high hopes for you, Sailor Moon Crystal!

I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned that "Sugu moderu." note.
I though Usagi had problem only with Kanji, not Hiragana.

They started to add more background music. Not bad, the action seems more alive than in some previous episods.
I really hope the final battle will be drawn better. I have no ideas what they will do with Shi tennou, but I'll expect something with epic stuff and so on ^^

This episode was quite of a letdown after waiting for 3 weeks to release this episode. Like the few posters that have already mentioned, the biweekly schedule ruins the momentum of the series. I guess it's better to put the show on hold and wait until it finishes airing.

I know, it's magical girls genre, but given how dreary this show is, it stands out even more.

Ooh Mamo-chan is using his mind control powers to get what queen beryl wants. Naughty boy!

I still don't like Sailor moon and Sailor Mercury's transformation sequences.

They're following the manga almost panel for panel so it feels weird when its animated. For a bi-weekly (sometimes tri-weekly) release it doesn't work very well, I feel like Crystal is a show that's better to be marathoned.

I guess Ami just wanted to prove that the sword is special.

You can hurt me....
You can hurt my friends...
But no one hurts my cat!!!!!

And I agree with Ciara....their transformations lasted 25% of the episode only to get their asses handed to them in one second.......

I'm really disliking Sailor Moon's character more and more each episode...
She never used to cry this much...
Every 5 minutes, this chick cries!!!!

Good episode, even though there was a lot of filler....especially since we have to wait so long for each episode....I mean shit, I will have probably completed 500+ anime by the time this is over lol.

So one thing that drives me crazy about anime, is when some character has changed, and they change their eye color (usually drastically) and NOBODY seems to notice. I mean, I get it if they were just an acquaintance, but it is usually someone they care about. Like Usagi really fucking loves Mamo....you would think she would notice the DRASTIC DIFFERENCE between his extremely blue eyes, to the now red eyes....

Great episode, but wow the plot moves too slowly :P

Why are people standing there waiting to be attacked!?! This is not a turn based game!

They really need to improve the fighting scenes here!

And wow how can you not tell that is Mamo-chan! I'm pretty sure if he was a clone or imposter they would be able to tell right away, but not even the real real Mamo-chan?

I love how Mamoru is much more aggressive here when being controlled. Definitely much more realistic.

Poor Luna being hurt after protecting Usagi. Stop being a spoil brat and fight! Come on now Usagi it's time for you to grow up!

And yeah i was behind Happiness Precure for about 7 episodes. But here i'm only behind 3. Bi weekly definitely sucks, but at least i'm almost at the latest episode.

Can't wait for the next episode though!

I know she's supposed to be an airhead but that's a bit too much! Haha. Maybe they did it in hiragana so young kids watching the show would notice it?

This was just an average episode. I was thinking there would be more to it considering Episode 10 was so good xD
