The latest English episode of Sailor Moon Crystal is now available on Hulu and Neon Alley. Act 23, Covert Maneuvers – Wiseman, is all about Black Lady and Black Lady making out with her dad. We only got glimpses of her last week but here we see here normally. Her voice is provided by Sandy Fox, who also plays Chibiusa, though naturally it sound different from her child voice.
I love to make fun of the fact that Black Lady loves making out with her dad but this is a bit of a complex issue. Chibiusa has fairly normal feelings for her father but add time travel, magical aging and a bit of evil into the mix and things and get a bit confused. Next Friday is Act 24, Attack – Black Lady, which is a lot more Black Lady!
It is a bit sick to me the storyline of Chibusa and Mamoru. I guess Naoko wasn’t sure what else to do with Chibiusa. I understand she wanted to portray chibiusa as lonely time traveler, but Mamoru and Usagi don’t look different from her parents. This is probably less understandable than her being a little bratty.
Did you notice that Pluto technically walked away from the Space-Time Door, even though in the next episode or two she’s like, “I can’t leave the Space-Time Door. I need a cat to guard it for me!”
Also, is Diana wise beyond her age? Because she was talking like someone far beyond her years to King Endymion in this episode.
If Chibi-usa is 900 years old, I assume Diana must be too.
That could also be because of her species – maybe the cat-people of Mao are wise and mature far beyond their years when compared to a human. It could be why they’re advisors to Moon Royalty, maybe that is one of the traits of their race, if that makes sense.
Oooh, that’s a pretty good answer! I bet she’s old like Chibiusa, but maybe you are right, maybe cat people are highly sought after as advisers.
The family was completely screwed up
