Sailor Moon Crystal Act 13 - Sailor Moon attacks Metalia

The latest episode of Sailor Moon Crystal is now available to view in English on Hulu and Neon Alley. Act 13, Final Battle – Reincarnation, is the final full episode of the Dark Kingdom story arc. Everyone is putting their life on the line this week to defeat the evil Queen Metalia!

This is the version of the episode with modified animation, originally used for the Japanese DVD and Blu-Ray release. Amongst the changes is Queen Serenity’s dress who in the streaming version, shown above, shows a dress that looks like Princess Serenity’s. This was changed to reflect a style of dress that was similar to what Queen Serenity wears as an adult. I didn’t like this change at all. I thought it was nice to see Queen Serenity in a different light, dressing like her daughter later would, perhaps when she was still Princess herself. Oh well. At least we still have kitten Luna!

Next week is Act 14, Conclusion and Commencement – Petite Etrangère, which will sort of span both story arcs. We will conclude the Dark Kingdom story arc and then end with a setup for the Dark Moon Clan arc with the arrival of the “small stranger” Chibiusa.

Note: I will be traveling all week so this post was written last week and scheduled to go online after the episode airs. Should the episode not go online for whatever reason, I apologize for the confusing and misleading post!

  1. I liked some of the dialogue changes to this episode. It really does add a bit of character development that the Japanese version was lacking. I especially liked Luna’s when she and Artemis went to the moon.

    Next week, we get to rewatch one of my favorite acts! :D

  2. The one criticism I would have for this episode is that during the flash back episode with Queen Serenity, it kind of sounds like Queen Serenity already knows her daughter’s going to be reincarnated. Not sure if they said that in the Japanese version, but it’s a little weird here in the English.

    Other than that, I have no problem whatsoever with this episode.

    • And did anyone else think of Ursula from The Little Mermaid when Metalia spoke? It was that confidence, that conceit and nasty sense of pride. They also sound a little bit of like. I don’t know, what do you think?

  3. Was that flashback of Queen Serenity really of her in her younger years? I never got that impression when I first saw it and I always thought her dress was an animation error. While I have genuinely enjoyed Crystal, I still think the ending to the first season was better in the original anime. The original anime’s ending was shocking and heart breaking and it still makes me cry every time I watch it. The Crystal ending feels rushed and a bit cliched though I love the ending to the Crystal version of the Black Moon arc better than the 90s anime ending of R.

  4. When are they focusing on sailor moon S 90s dub it’s seems like their taking forever.
    The only news they have given was the cast.
