SMC10-SM9

Meat and Veggies

-The Sailor Guardians are still living their lives, carrying on with strength and confidence as they move closer to their lunar odyssey

-The strength of Usagi’s emotions growing with the waxing of the moon feels sweetly symbolic of her being ready to face what will come on the Moon and save her love.

-All that exposition from Queen serenity was so heavy.

-The Sailor Guardians pulling the sword from the stone was so boss! Makoto’s enthusiasm initial was great, Mako’s determination and confidence was a great follow up to that.

-The programming that set Queen Serenity to awaken for a final message after the sword was pulled was a nice touch, especially with how present she was.

-It so tragic that this lady was taking her daughter to visit the place which is theirs to tend to and then her daughter kills herself out of grief and yet Serenity has to carry on fighting Metalia.

-I teared-up when serenity killed herself. Thankfully there was no blood, but the composition of the shots and the sound design was so visceral that I think I shuttered. Full disclosure: I am the father of two girls.

-Queen Serenity’s redirection of the Sailor Guardians’ mission has been desperately needed. As much as I have enjoyed the love story and the personal drama, there needs to be a clear mission for our heroes, and now we have it.

-Silver Millennium worked to protect and help progress humanity, when Queen Serenity sealed away Metalia, both the kingdoms of the Moon and Earth were destroyed, at which point Earth’s history re-started. Since then, Silver Millennium has been turned to stone.

-Beryl is using the Four Kings who had served as Prince Endymion’s Knights (see the mirroring there?) to help her and Metalia to dominate the Earth as they once had.

-The Sailor Guardian’s and Endymion’s Knights being in love is a cool, if slightly clichéd touch. What made it work so well was Beryl’s wicked delight in controlling the men to attack their past loves. Usagi stopping their attacks and saving the world from her orbit in outer space is a perfect embodiment of her position as the heir to Silver Millennium and shows how amazing sailor Moon is.

-WOWZA Beryl is going to use Mamoru… who she embraced almost lovingly and called Endymion with a certain velvety tone in her voice to kill Usagi and take the LSC.
