THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.

Welp, this episode reached a climax..

It's about damn time Sailor Moon and the others fought back though. Seems like we also got a bit of problems on the enemy side with Saphir. Neo Queen Serenity's presence was a highlight though.

Now they just need to find Tuexdo Mask and Chibi-usa. Sigh.

Kinda okay episode storywise. Lots of off-model shots in animation, though.

Goddamn, Wiseman. I hate you.

They don't have to find Tux and Chibi-usa, because...

Wiseman was such an ass today, I loved it.

Definitely a good ep. Can't wait for the.... "Queen".

The girls reunite and return to Sailor Pluto and Kink Endymion. However, they have to go back and find Chibi-usa and Tuxedo Mask. Well it was a nice episode. The Wiseman has a creepy laugh, sicko.

Some parts were pretty creepy, I really liked it :o That Venus moment was so weird and a bit force into that tense scene. Toei could at least put a jolly ost in that part to emphasize the comedy scene :s Except some few errors there were many moments with very good art. The music was not a let down either. Generally a very good episode art and story wise IMO. And OMG... now wait 3 frickin' weeks for the next episode... =___="

I'm so glad we're finally getting in depth in the Black Moon arc. This episode was so great and I'm glad all 5 senshi are back together. The art style was a bit inconsistent this episode but that's not a big deal.

Annoying small lady turns into evil black lady. Either way, Chibiusa sure is causing trouble for the Sailor scouts!

I'm really liking Sailor Pluto's larger role in this series than the original anime! It didn't seem like Pluto did as much in R.

I actually started watching this episode and understood nothing. Then I realized I hadn't seen last week's episode and had to go back and watch it before continuing. It's all coming together now! This arc is finally interesting

It took Crystal 22 episodes just to figure out what direction they should take with the animation....

I'm happy to say this episode was enjoyable, and it was great seeing some action in the form of Neo Queen Serenity.

So we get Moon Crystal Power Make-Up, but no new transformation animation? They just replace the broach and that's it? Okay then... maybe not in this season.

That's 22 episodes too late, but better late than never, I suppose.

At least things are picking up, but it's still not as enjoyable as it should be. I feel like Tuxedo Mask picked up the idiot ball this episode, and I don't get how Usagi being called a detestable woman triggered the Silver Crystal's power/Neo Queen Serenity showing up to give her power.

haha I feel it to >-<
that laughter at the end...lol...like a girls and Chibiusa the same.
They cut soo much and it feels rushed to me...but I still get the sory better than in the old series. Maybe that's because I was a child back then...and didn't get eveything.

Geez~~I would really like the old sory like it was + the animation of this series. The osts are good. And I hate the 3D transformations...I don't know why...

One thing goes right, 5 things go wrong.

The girls just come across as so weak compared to the first series...maybe that's just nostalgia talking I don't know but I hate the way they come across.

And then there's Chibi Usa...ugh.

They haven't changed the transformation since Moon Crystal Power was introduced.

That's some nice dad, not going for his own daughter, when she got lost in Fourth Dimension, while the guy, who isn't even her father yet, went =/

No, that is exactly how it is. I've just rewatched original series about two years ago.

What about Chibiusa, well... Some people think that her motivations are better in manga. I am not part of them though.

Wiseman's voice is really strange. It would go from normal to a really childish voice. Pretty funny actually.


Story is getting somewhat interesting...

How far can Endymion's spirit be separated from his body would be my question.

its sad the series took this long to actually get interesting, but its still pretty boring at least to me :/ the most exciting part was seeing chibiusa as black lady.

Good Episode. They sneak in some funny scenes with Venus :)

New animation attacks are good, but kinda feels weak tbh.

Lol Black Eye reminds me of Dio's Time Stop XD

Chibi-usa became Black Lady. It'll be interesting how they handle the fight :D

Can't wait for the next episode!!

I feel that way too. In the original series I felt like they were normal emotional teenage girls... who also kicked butt! But now Usagi's emotional rants seem to overpower more than I remember, and everyone seems less powerful than I remember :( I think it's just nostalgia goggles though... :( Kind of wish I could come back to this series fresh.

This episode felt a bit hollow to me. I wasn't really impressed with it :/
