Thoughts/Review:

Sheeze. Work always getting in the way of my having some fun. No wonder I’m so far behind. ^_^;

Sailor Moon Crystal - 06

Anyway, this episode is another one by the numbers. Bad guys come up with a plan, start to execute it, Sailor Jail Bait get into gear, all looks hopeless, one of the Sailor Jail Bait girls finds a way, bad guys retreat while vowing to return, which they will do next episode.

Sailor Moon Crystal - 06

As I watched the episode, the part where the hidden operations center was revealed to be under the arcade made me wonder what people would think who hadn’t read the original Sailor V manga series.  Obviously, enough hints are dropped to point people back to that series, should they wish to find out more. Since Sailor V had an actual cameo this episode, I guess she’ll be showing up pretty soon.

Sailor Moon Crystal - 06

Regardless, since I’m so far behind and this episode didn’t do much other than have Usagi discover that Chiba knew she was Sailor Moon and that Chiba is Tuxedo mask, I’ll move on to watch the next episode since I’m still two behind.
