Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Stars (Episodes #176-179)

More Sailor Stars! This time the other two Sailor Starlights get some focus. EPISODE #176:  School test shenanigans are afoof, as Usagi, Minako AND Seiya fail their tests and need to do make-ups, but Seiya’s ALSO struggling with a stage director, who criticizes his entire performance. Meanwhile, Rei continues her “teleports straight to Juuban High” gimmick, while now copying the “Noblewoman Laugh” anime cliché as … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Stars (Episodes #176-179)

Sailor Moon: Sailor Stars (Episodes #173-175)

Like these douches? You better- the creators fall in love with them and they run away with the spotlight for weeks at a time. Hey, we’re back! And now I finally reach the final, FINAL arc of the 200-episode series, as we hit the “Sailor Starlights/Galaxia” arc! The entire nature of the show shifts from this point out- this ends up being one of the … Continue reading Sailor Moon: Sailor Stars (Episodes #173-175)

Sailor Moon: Sailor Stars (Episodes #170-172)

Welcome back to more Sailor Stars reviews! The series is now in its last season, but has oddly brought back the villain from the PRIOR one, having found the way she went out disappointing. This is probably one of the most well-thought-of arcs left to go, and is the only time we see the entirety of the Sailor Senshi fight as a unit! So let’s … Continue reading Sailor Moon: Sailor Stars (Episodes #170-172)

Sailor Moon: Sailor Stars (Episodes #167-169)

The return of Nehalennia. Welcome back! And it’s time now for the very, very last season of Sailor Moon, as I delve into Sailor Stars! This one is the season I know by far the least about- final notes hadn’t quite been made of it when I first got into the fandom, and later on, the fansites had kinda disappeared and I wasn’t as obsessed … Continue reading Sailor Moon: Sailor Stars (Episodes #167-169)

Sailor Moon SuperS (Final Summation)

SAILOR MOON SUPERS:-… sigh… well, HERE GOES… Out of all the seasons of Sailor Moon, the fourth seasons, Sailor Moon SuperS (said like “Supers”, but with a big “S”, because reasons), is almost universally the most disliked by the show’s adult fanbase. Even back in the 1990s, in the early days of the widespread online anime fandom, SuperS was seen as pretty weak- the only … Continue reading Sailor Moon SuperS (Final Summation)

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon S – The Movie

Luna’s human form. SAILOR MOON S- THE MOVIE:-So they released another one-hour feature after the end of Sailor Moon Super, and again, it’s out of continuity. Unusually, however, it’s based off of a manga story- a side-story Naoko Takeuchi did on larger paper in a “tankobon” (like a trade paperback for us). This movie’s ALSO about a Giant Space Meteor like Sailor Moon R was, with the magical … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon S – The Movie

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS: The Movie

SAILOR MOON SUPERS- THE MOVIE:-And now we come to the final movie in the Sailor Moon movie trilogy, SuperS! This one made less than half what Sailor Moon R: The Movie did, and the SuperS and Sailor Stars seasons did less and less well as time went on, so the studio wisely ended things here. Again, the continuity here is kejiggered, Sailors Neptune, Uranus & PLUTO active, but no Sailor Saturn mentioned at all. … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS: The Movie

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (163-166)

And now, at last, we’ve reached the FINALE of Sailor Moon SuperS! All the endgame moments have ramped up- Helios’s body is trapped by Queen Nehalennia! The Amazoness Quartet have been humanized and met up with the Sailors as enemies and as friends! Sailor Chibi-Moon has redoubled her efforts to save her friend Helios, but was captured by the enemy! Let’s get two it! EPISODE … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (163-166)

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (159-162)

Sailor Moon: Saving the world and interfering in the love-life of a child, all in the same episode! Welcome back! When last we left off, Pegasus revealed that he’s actually Helios, the guardian of the Dream World, where all of mankind’s dreams reside. And he resembles a young-ish boy, making his relationship with Chibi-Usa slightly less weird! Meanwhile, Queen Nehalennia still wants control over his … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (159-162)

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (156-158)

Hey all! Welcome back! Time to get even more into the series, with a pretty famous episode (one based off of the manga, too). So this far in, we have the Amazoness Quartet as largely-interchangeable villainesses, hunting down Dream Mirrors hoping to find the one hiding Pegasus (which, remember, we know is Chibi-Usa). Zirconia leads them, but is herself led by the impatient Queen Nehalennia. … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (156-158)

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (153-155)

Welcome back! We just saw Sailor Mercury & Sailor Mars get their new “Super Sailor” powers, so that leaves only two left! And SURELY they won’t screw them over by making them share, right? So the Amazoness Quartet are still searching for what we now know is a GOLDEN Dream Mirror, and they’re showing pretty same-y personalities, minus one… EPISODE #153: We take a break … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (153-155)

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (151-152)

Back for more Sailor Moon reviews! SuperS finally shook things up a bit, as the Amazon Trio sacrificed themselves and were rewarded with human bodies (and being written out of the series)! The Amazoness Quartet- a band of underage nudists- are our new “Generals!” And we’ve finally been introduced to the tall, freaky, glamorous Queen Nehalennia! And now we finally start getting to see new … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (151-152)

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (148-150)

Welcome back to more Sailor Moon reviews! So our three hapless horn-dog villains are still chasing after whichever Dream Mirror has Pegasus in it, but now… THINGS finally start to happen! Yeah, so Naoko Takeuchi probably added more information in the manga, so the poor writers finally had more stuff to go on and didn’t need so much filler. And so in this set of … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (148-150)

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (146-147)

And we’re back with more! The girls have just gained “Super” transformations into more powerful Sailors, but are a ways away from actually showing new powers. “Filler Episodes” are thus still the name of the game. The villains are still searching for Pegasus in a Dream Mirror (we know that it’s in Chibi-Usa’s), it’s revealed that he and Chibi-Usa have feelings for each other, and … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (146-147)

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (143-145)

Welcome back for more reviews of the “All Chibi-Moon, All The Time” season of Sailor Moon! We just got done a bunch of Filler Episodes while they wait for Naoko Takeuchi to write more issues of the manga, and some times actually move forward and change here! So the baddies are still looking for the Dream Mirror that holds Pegasus, but WE know that it’s in … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (143-145)
