4:8 – Hearts that Communicate! Chibi-Usa and Pegasus
Unable to form any connection with her students, she is then attacked by Tigers-Eye, who plans to use her as bait to draw out Pegasus. Using a specialist Remless, he plans to infect the dreams of the person Pegasus is currently residing within… HEY.
Hurl abuse, please! Right so this episode is the beginning of the deeply troubling episodes focussed on Chibi-Usa and Pegasus having what is clearly an inappropriately romantic storyline between an 11 year old and a fucking magic horse.
The talking horse, in return, simply does an equine equivalent of a shrug. Strong opening. This is all rather circuitous, but I like it. The characters are actually thinking about the mechanics of all this. I feel like mechanics are pretty thin on the ground in SuperS.
Whereas Super had this theme of science, reason and development, SuperS has gone for a more fairytale mythos. This is interesting narratively and aesthetically, but I do wish there was more care involved in exposition. Bit of a chuckle there. My this episode is looking lovely. I have a coldsore. SO many parks in Sailor Moon. Chibi-Usa is on a field trip with her art class, so we get a bit of Momo-chan now with purple hair!
I mean, just look at him. She initially tells Chibi-Usa off for wearing a stupid fake moustache and glasses, but just kind of tails off after Chibi-usa says it made her better.
Artists take on commissions. So suck it, Chibi-Usa. The kids comment that Morino is cold and hard to approach, and suggest that she hates kids. Why do you think that is you turds? Man this anime can be depressing sometimes.
I think the teacher is just a bit too real and depressing to make for a good Sailor Moon plot. I really miss our Senshi, who have had such little screen time. What is rather good is Tigers-Eye trying to hit on Fish-Eye love it and Fish-Eye getting extremely annoyed at this and running his mouth off. It works a lot better than when Tigers-Eye is stalking and hitting on strangers in the street.
Just make these two flirt for the rest of the season, please. Coupling these two together would be far less repulsive then seeing them stalk people We get a rather great scene between Chibi-Usa and Usagi.
Usagi always loses, because of course she does. I laughed a lot. But it also made me sad, because Usagi feels like a comic side character then our shining beacon. Or dead. Whichever is easiest, really. If I were a teacher I mean. And Japanese. And a woman I guess. I had to give a wry laugh. Horrid this may be, but I was just thinking how lazy Tigers-Eye was being.
Where has everyone on the street gone? I swear I saw people in the background before this. This only started happening from the third season, too. Lazy writing I suspect. It just does not get less creepy. This climax is a bit different from previous episodes. For one, it lasts half the episode. He whips them a bit until Tuxedo Kamen turns up.
This is all according to plan, of course. What do I do!? Well that was easy. Tigers-Eye chickens the fuck out right away, which is damn shame because 5 more seconds and he would have seen Chibi-Moon have an extremely obvious reaction to Pegasus being disabled.
I like the aesthetic. But, alas, the actual subject matter, as I said, is heavy-handed, saccharine and a little dull. Well, obviously. Another great performance. Feisty as hell. And Sailor Moon does not question why Chibi-Moon went into a fugue state whatsoever. Well that was satisfying. So what was the trigger for this?
Why did we follow this character arc? Bad guys attacked you but Sailor Moon chased them away! Sailor Moon. She was just rescued by a super hero and that was her reaction. I think someone has spiked the water supply of Tokyo with laudanum or something. Chibi-Usa submitted the painting with Pegasus anyway, because she thought it was better art, not really giving a shit about the score.
Morino agrees with her in a rather lovely way. Still gives her an F though. And damn straight. Pegasus leaves Chibi-Usa a final gift. Also to watch her while she sleeps. Yes, this is exactly as horrifying as it sounds. Would you feel ok with an 11 year old being given a communication device that no one else knew about, warning her to keep silent about it?
This thing allows me to watch you all the time. They will judge you forever, and I say that from experience. All those other bath scenes were innocent in their portrayal.
By adding another party in there, one who finds it shameful enough to blush, you introduced another element in there. Have at it. The end. So yeah… I liked some parts, but most of the episode I was just waiting for it to move on. A real shame. Also that ending has so much what-the-fuckness that you will never forget it. I mean, jesus. Bar the end.
Super Chibi Moon Left Super Sailor Moon Right with Pegasus The story begins with the people of Tokyo, Japan, including Usagi Tsukino and her friends, all watching for a particular event that is set to occur that very day; this event is an eclipse, where the Sun is completely enveloped by the Moon so that the Earth becomes darkened. Usagi, Mamoru, Rei, and others, awaiting the Eclipse, as shown in Episode 1. While the Earth is being overshadowed by this eclipse, aliens from another dimension, in the form of a circus, called the Dead Moon Circus, make their landing on the Earths surface in Tokyo, Japan.
They use the darkness of the eclipse to land on the Earth so that they are not noticed. Usagi Tsukino gazing upon the new-found Dead-Moon Circus that appeared in sight just after the event of the Eclipse. Now the concept behind this seasons story has to do with dreams that dreaming children have. Every other dream that is not the chosen dream is within a Pink Mirror, and some occasional dreams are more of a pale purplish, which means they pretty much have no dreams within their hearts at all.
The Golden Mirror that contains the brightest of dreams. Despite how powerful Queen Nehelenia is after being released from her mirror prison after having obtained the Golden Crystal from Pegasus, standing up to even some of the powerful attacks that the Sailor Soldiers can dish out like Sailor Planet Attack, etc. Queen Nehelenia concealed within her mirror in the darkest parts of the universe for all eternity, but not without retaining her youthful beauty.
Overall I thought this season was a great watch, with a very dark and deep storyline, that was on par with the series previous season Super.

Overall I thought this season was a great watch, with a very dark and deep storyline, that was on par with the series previous season Super. She was already weak, too, from having her energy sapped by the mermaid monster. In the end, Mars got the upper-hand when she unveiled Fire Soul Bird. Sailor Mars is the most impassioned fighter, but it feels as if her special attacks got weaker as the series went on.
In the beginning, she was one of the core group's powerhouses. Her Fire Soul Bird is stunning to watch, but it never defeated the enemy in the two times it was ever used. Things seemed hopeless, especially after Ail and An sicced a Cardian on those pesky Sailor Guardians.
Seeing Sailor Jupiter construct a sentient dragon out of electricity, and then sending it to feast on Ail and An's underling, is glorious. Sadly, Supreme Thunder Dragon was only used once, and it failed to eliminate the threat. After all, Sailor Moon still needed to destroy the Cardian. We also didn't see her destructive Death Reborn Revolution technique like in the manga. It was alluded to in the fight against Pharaoh 90, but we didn't see it.
That is, until Sailor Chibi-Moon intervened out of fear of losing her best friend again. Other than that move, Saturn's only other ability shown in the anime was a defensive technique called Silent Wall. It was a force field that shielded her and others from harm.
Effective, but is this all they could muster up for the Guardian of Ruin? It all started with the Dark Kingdom creating a new pet called the Chanela. These chinchilla-like critters were part of the enemy's ploy to seize life energy en masse. Sailor Moon couldn't very well destroy Iguara's victims, which included her brother Shingo.
Luckily, Luna had an idea. After throwing her tiara and saying the incantation "Moon Tiara Stardust," Sailor Moon reversed the effects on Shingo and the others. This was a one-off maneuver that served its purpose.
In essence, it was successful, but was it even necessary? We're pretty sure just defeating Iguara would have reversed the spell on Shingo and everyone else. It's not as if water isn't a powerful element. In the beginning, Mercury's first attack was Bubble Spray. In most instances, Mercury conjured mist to shroud her opponent's vision. This wasn't all she could do, though.
On top of mist, Mercury's bubbles could neutralize explosive devices, instantly cool down a river of lava, amplify Sailor Jupiter's electrical abilities, and more. So, why is Bubble Spray considered to be weak after all that? Despite how creative she was with her very limited power, Mercury was put at a disadvantage. Her friends created fire or shot beams of light.
