The next episode of Sailor Moon Crystal, Act 25, Showdown – Death Phantom, will be available this coming Saturday, July 4th, at 7pm Japan Standard Time which is 6am Eastern Time, 3am Pacific Time. Since that’s nice and early you’ll have more than enough time to watch it before your mandatory yearly viewing of the hit film Independence Day. As always the episode will be available to stream on Crunchyroll, Hulu and Niconico. This week we say goodbye to a Sailor Guardian and hello to a new one as everything changes.
Where the last episode left off Prince Demande was just about to put the two Silver Crystals together, which is meant to be a disastrous suggestion of the scope of crossing the streams. Sailor Pluto has three rules and she’s broken two so why not just break the third now? Judging from the next episode preview a lot of the episode will show Chibiusa struggling to free herself from Black Lady, though this internal struggle is not something we see a lot of in the Manga. It’s finally time for Chibiusa to come into the role she was born to play, but will she be just a moment too late?
And will we find out if they’ll be doing the Infinity Arc in two weeks? There’s the question fans everywhere have!
It’s been 25 episodes and Sailor Moon still hasn’t held anyone in her arms, except for Luna.
If you wanted to see Pluto and Chibiusa’s relationship animated…you’re gonna have a bad time….
About 75% of this episode was literally pan ins, pan outs, and pan side to sides of still images T_T and not even good still images *sigh*
