Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (137-139)

It’s time for more of Sailor Moon SuperS! And this time around, the remaining Amazon Trio members FINALLY get to do something! I guess Naoko Takeuchi finally debuted their powers in the manga, so the animators had something to go on. They’re still hunting down the “Holders of Beautiful Dreams” based off of whom they want to bone, though. EPISODE #137: Holy Hell! FINALLY Fish’s … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (137-139)

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (135-136)

We’re back for more! So far, we’ve had a few Sailor-Centric episodes, established the villains and their hunt for Pegasus in the “Dream Mirrors” of our Victims of the Week, and shown Zirconia as being their leader. Episode #135: The Amazon Trio & Zirconia discuss the nature of Pegasus, and how the creature that manifests in reality is but a “shadow” of the real creature. … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (135-136)

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (132-134)

Sailor Jupiter gets a focus episode this time! We’re back with more of Sailor Moon’s silliest season! The bad guys are still hunting for Pegasus, but are actually still just trying to score dates. Look at this interesting new character who is super important to one of the main characters and we’ll never meet again! EPISODE #132: Oh wow- FINALLY. Another episode featuring Usagi & … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (132-134)

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (130-131)

And we’re back with more! This one features two regular episodes, and one strange longer version. Pictured: Hawk’s Eye, the pursuer of sexy older women. Figures the Sailor Moon character most like me would look like this. EPISODE #130: In a rather infamous one, the MILF-hunting Hawk’s Eye chooses a target- USAGI’S MOM!!! “In the name of my dad, I’ll punish you!”, lol. Usagi blows … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (130-131)

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (128-129)

SAILOR MOON SUPERS: Typically called Super S in the West by my recollection, it’s actually called SuperS, but most of the online Sailor Moonfandom had never seen it at the time (the mid-90s). This whole season has a very palpable sense of “… so, I came up with their past, their future, then added the Sailors for the missing Planets… well SHIT. NOW what do I do?” So Naoko … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon SuperS (128-129)

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon R – The Movie

SAILOR MOON R- THE MOVIE:Yes, they made three movies for the Sailor Moon franchise. The animation is of course glorious compared to anything you’d see in the cartoon, with bodies having both shading AND highlights, and the frame-rate going up a bit, too, with lots of glamorous shots and better posing than the “straight-on” stuff from a more mundane TV episode. The three middle seasons, Sailor Moon R, S and SuperS, … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon R – The Movie

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon S (124-127)

Sailor Saturn- The terrifying “Senshi of Destruction”, with the power to destroy the entire world. And now we’ve reached the finale of Sailor Moon S! The story- Hotaru Tomoe has been transformed into the evil Mistress 9 by her father, Professor Tomoe. The Mistress calls forth her master, the faceless Pharaoh 90, who shall now enact “The Silence”- the end of everything. So… Armageddon. Sailor … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon S (124-127)

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon S (121-124)

Mistress 9- the Messiah of Silence. And we’re back with the penultimate set of episodes for Sailor Moon S! When we last left off, there was a ton of stuff revealed- our villain is called Pharaoh 90, and is an unseen otherwordly force. His primary agent speaks through innocent young Hotaru Tomoe, and her father, the mind-controlled Professor, creates monsters as part of the “Death Busters” … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon S (121-124)

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon S (112-116)

Look at how happy, harmless and innocent she is! She surely won’t cause the apocalypse! Welcome back! This time, we get the proper debuts of two important characters- our new “General”, Mimete, and the darkly mysterious Hotaru Tomoe. Who everyone familiar with the show knows by her later identity, but try to look surprised, because they run with it all season long, okay? The show … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon S (112-116)

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon S (116-120)

Mimete- aka Best Villain Ever. And we’re back for more! Chibi-Usa and her friendship with Hotaru (who is both genuinely sweet and kind, and also possessed by Satan) is now the focus of the show, with the “Outer Senshi” (Sailors Uranus, Neptune & Pluto) being bitchy and unhelpful to the younger Sailors again. EPISODE #116: Kind of a “filler” one- Chibi-Usa, Usagi & Hotaru disregard … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon S (116-120)

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor MooN S (109-111)

In this set- the debut of Super Sailor Moon! You can tell it’s a Super Form because it’s even more girly and detailed than the LAST one. And now it’s time to close the book on the first chapter of Sailor Moon S, as we uncover the Talismans that everyone’s been hunting for! And OMG, the whole “the Talisman holder will DIE if it’s removed!” … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor MooN S (109-111)

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon S (106-108)

The Sailors lend themselves REALLY well to fancy fanart. And we’re back for more episodes! Hopefully with MORE exposition, now that Chibi-Usa is back and we can start HER little bit of characterization. And we hit the halfway point of Sailor Moon S, which is good, because that’s about when they really kick things into overdrive. EPISODE #106: The girls are visiting High Schools now, … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon S (106-108)

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon S (101-105)

Sailor Moon and Mars reacting to Sailor Chibi-Moon’s debut. Pretty fitting. Welcome back! When last we left off, we learned that The Silence is coming- a potential… Armageddon, basically. The Sailors are all still after the Talismans, along with the villains known as the Death Busters. Kaolinite and the shadowy “Professor” are still engaging in their mad scheme. EPISODES #101 & 102: It’s Usagi’s birthday! … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon S (101-105)

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon S (97-100)

DVD Box Set wooooooooooooooooooooo!!!! Welcome back! We now enter the set that includes the ONE-HUNDREDTH episode of Sailor Moon (and is thus the mid-point for the entire series). We’ve just learned that the Talismans both sides are searching for are apparently to be combined into the Holy Grail, which will be wielded by The Messiah. In short: Shit is now Biblical. This one features lots … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon S (97-100)

Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon S (94-96)

The most famous lesbian couple in the history of cartoons. Like, who’s even #2? And we’re back! When last I left off Sailor Moon S (for Super!), we were introduced to Sailor Uranus & Sailor Neptune, a pair of… VERY close young women, both of whom were on a mission to collect the mystical Talismans, same as the other Sailors. But instead of being close … Continue reading Jab’s Reviews: Sailor Moon S (94-96)
