All of Sailor Moon S is now available on Hulu

Sailor Moon S episode 126 - Chibiusa, Hotaru and Professor Tomoe

This week with the two latest additions of Sailor Moon to Hulu we get episodes 126 and 127. This completes the Sailor Moon S season, so fans can now watch all of the first 3 seasons of Sailor Moon for free on Hulu and Neon Alley. We actually wrapped up the main story of Sailor Moon S last week with episode 125 so now we have a couple of sort of terrible episodes focusing on other things which happen following the main altercation with Mistress 9, Pharaon 90 and Sailor Saturn which no one ever asked for but that we are getting anyway.

Sailor Moon S episode 126 - Sailor Uranus and Neptune bow to Sailor Moon

Episode 126, A New Life: Parting of the Stars of Destiny, seemingly immediately follows episode 125. We don’t actually follow up with what Super Sailor Moon and Baby Hotaru will do but instead we start by seeing Chibiusa asleep. We eventually do see where Baby Hotaru ended up. She is with her father, Professor Tomoe, who is obviously still recuperating from his injuries. Chibiusa is happy to see that Hotaru is healthy and safe, though it seems like it might be a while until they can hang out again. It’s important to note that Professor Tomoe is relatively innocent in this whole affair. He was controlled by an evil entity all this time. The only thing he did which was wrong was that he agreed to allow some unseen unknown power to bring his daughter back to life while still suffering from the trauma of seeing her die. Almost anyone would have made that same decision. At this point it seems like there is a happy ending for Professor Tomoe and Hotaru. It would certainly be bad if in not too much time some girls who previously tried to murder this baby came by and forcefully took her from her father. All that is well and good but now the episode gets really awful. Everyone should have been totally cool with Usagi being great but instead Sailor Uranus and Neptune randomly start to fight Sailor Moon because they want her to prove that she’s really worthy. She doesn’t really do anything to prove this worth, and just fights for a bit, and maybe because they respect that she’s kind of scrappy they have a complete change of heart, kneel to her and we’re all friends again. What an awful waste of time that leaves a sour taste in our mouths for characters that were otherwise so well handled for the rest of the season. Too bad we won’t be seeing them at all next season.

Sailor Moon S episode 127 - Usagi and Chibiusa say their goodbyes, again

Episode 127, A Guardian’s Realization: Strength Lies Within a Pure Heart, may seem a bit familiar to fans. Didn’t we just see this in Sailor Moon Crystal? It’s time for Chibiusa to leave, again, but she’s quite sad about it. The real failure of this episode is that Chibiusa gave a better and more emotionally touching goodbye at the end of episode 88, after she left at the end of Sailor Moon R. Here we sort of do a weaker version of that sadness and Chibiusa once again leaves. She returns almost immediately though, which is reminiscent of the manga. When Chibiusa leaves after the Black Moon story arc of the manga, as seen in Sailor Moon Crystal episode 26, she immediately returns. This doesn’t happen the first time around in the anime as Chibiusa remains gone for a number of episodes. Perhaps the writers would have kept her away had the plot of Sailor Moon S, based on the Infinity arc of the Manga, not required her to be linked to Hotaru’s story. I feel this episode should simply not have happened and instead we should have seen this in Sailor Stars. By the time Chibiusa finally leaves for the future she’s fake left three times before finally leaving anti climactically between episodes. Chibiusa isn’t being forgotten any time soon though. She’s about to dominate the screen for the entire next season as Sailor Moon SuperS, which will begin streaming on Hulu next Monday, is all about Chibiusa!

  1. Dream arc and Super S are both awesome!! I love the Chibiusa and Helios moments. Besides the Dead Moon Circus minions kinda look like the Sid and Marty Kroft characters.

  2. I personally enjoyed these episodes myself. Certainly I think it’s a better ending than that pointless recap special we got in R. I felt like these episodes were important in helping to wrap up the loose ends. I was disappointed you didn’t bring up what happened to Sailor Pluto and how confusing it is if she’s dead and some ghostly form or if she’s in another dimension. I always just assumed she went back to guarding the Gate of Time myself but most everyone else in the fandom seems to think that’s her ghost or something? I think the Outers fought Usagi to let out their frustrations they’ve had pent up the whole season and I suppose it’s better to let it all out now instead of keeping everything bottled up. I also love the cute scene where Chibi-usa comments about how Rei cares alot about Usagi even if it might not seem like it and how she wished she had a friend like Rei that she could speak freely with too. I’m disappointed you didn’t mention anything snarky about Ami giving Chibi-usa a floppy disk that will likely be useless in the 30th Century. I hope Viz will make some sort of announcement soon about how they’re going to handle the release of the Sailor Moon movies. It’s been two seasons with movies attache to them so far and every time Viz has been asked, they said they’re still working out how the release is going to be handled. I hope it comes soon as I would love to see a new uncut redub of the movies, especially the R and S movies, as those two are my favorites of the Sailor Moon movies.

    • Ha. Yes nothing is worse than episode 89!

      I enjoyed the baby Hotaru stuff personally but the rest I just can’t stand.

      Looking forward to the movies too! It’s been a while since I watched them. I’ll probably watch the French DVDs I bought some time soon.

    • Sailor Pluto was able to come back to 21st century because the time become distorted since Galaxia have invaded Earth, she clearly stated that in the first episode of Sailors Stars

  3. I enjoyed and loved Sandy Fox’s portrayal of Chibiusa. She’s cute. I hope Sugar Lyn Beard comes back if Viz hires her for Crystal or video games.

        • No. It won’t ever happen, why can’t people just let go of the old VA’s? That was then, this is now. Plus, doesn’t she live in Canada? If so, forget about it right now.

        • She can live in Los Angeles and still be into voice acting all she wants, doesn’t mean it’s going to happen. It isn’t location and career choices keeping Viz from using the old VA’s, it’s that they DON’T WANT THE OLD VAs.

          • The others don’t concern. Only Sugar Lyn should be the choice since Viz can make decision. If you can’t say something nice don’t say anything at all!

        • I’m terribly sorry the truth and facts are so hurtful to you, but you can shove the Polyanna crap.

          Sugar Lyn can want whatever she wants, Viz does not want her or any of the rest of those voice actors. No amount of you twisting the facts can change that.

          • Stay out of comments Ashley. Viz does want Sugar when they want, that’s your opinion.

          • Personally it seems a bit rude and somewhat stalkerish to me that Sam seems to have this obsession with getting back this one VA back for this one character yet is rude and dismissive to the rest of the old dub.

          • No Sam, how about you stay out of comments, you’re only causing trouble. Viz not wanting Sugar or any of the old cast is a FACT. You’re the one with opinions. Ashley didn’t say anything mean at all, clearly you aren’t mature enough to accept that Viz does NOT want Sugar, and it would be in your best interest to either GROW UP or stay out of the comments and do everyone the favor of not putting up with your shit.

        • Nah, I think I’ll stay right here, Sam. You’re a creep, your obsession is unhealthy and Viz doesn’t want any part of your hero.

      • I’m sorry but in my state they say eagles eye (sy shqiponje) and I thought that it is named like this in English to

        • Do they? My apologies on the correction!

          What a weird thing to do. In the Japanese original, his name is Hawk’s Eye (said in English), I believe his name is also Hawk’s Eye in the English dub, but I don’t know for sure.

          Can I ask where you’re from? I’m just curious.

          • Maybe they changed his name because if you say hawks eye in my language it sounds like something offensive and maybe they tried to fix it however it is his name so they shouldn’t change it
