Thoughts/Review:

This episode was mostly dedicated to lovely shoujo romance. Ah, shoujo romance. Isn’t is all so very sweet and shoujo. Well, shoujo romance is what it is.

As to the story, I can’t remember why Luna lied about not knowing anything about Sailor V to Usagi. I’m sure there was a reason, assuming it was in the original manga at all.

Also, I don’t remember Queen Beryl having her own plans for the Legendary Silver Crystal. Well, it has been a long time since I read the manga, and the manga didn’t impress me that much to begin with (which is why I stopped reading it after the initial story arc).

As for Usagi, it is so laughable to have her as the heroine. She can’t do a thing for herself and is constantly getting her bacon pulled out of the fire. This time, Chiba couldn’t save her in his Tuxedo Mask gear (she being in her Sailor Moon garb), but thankfully, Sailor V was there to save the day.

It is also laughable how the Sailor Babes are so easily defeated after their introduction. Zoisite blinks and the girls drop like flies.

Oh well. Time to move onto the next episode and try to get caught up.
