We’re almost done with the current run of episodes of Sailor Moon Crystal. This Monday we will get the second last episode of the Infinity arc, Act 37, Infinity 11 – Infinite – Judge. The episode will air on Japanese TV on Monday June 20th at 11pm Japan Standard Time. After that, starting at 10:30am, it will be available to stream on Crunchyroll, Neon Alley and Hulu. This week is all about the appearance of Sailor Saturn!
I’ve long griped about barely being able to see Sailor Saturn in the original Sailor Moon anime. Well now we’ll be able to see her first, but still somewhat brief, appearance in Sailor Moon Crystal. A transformation sequence seems unlikely at this point as Hotaru doesn’t really turn into Sailor Saturn, she’ll just sort of show up intent on destroying the world. Let’s see how that turns out for everyone!
Can’t wait to see my fave Outer Senshi.
Here’s hoping we’ll also hear something about Dream arc sometime.
I think we’ll get that on the episode next week which is technically the last on this arc.
cool so were get english dub some time soon then also will sailor moon s or super s becoming to crystal?????
This Sailor Moon Crystal Season lll is Sailor Moon S from the 90s anime.Sailor Moon SuperS is the next season of Sailor Moon Crystal( I dont know how it will be called,Dream arc like the creator ,Naoko Takeuchi named it or season lV )
Tomorrow it is!
Beautiful screenshots !
I’m looking forward to seeing this episode !
I also hope for a Pokemon/Sailor Moon anime crossover soon. The original voice actors from the original anime will reprise the Inner Scouts.
Enroll yourself in design school, mix the media to make the dialogue using the old voices, write a letter to Toei or make it happen on your own, but dear god stop spamming about it here.
Mind your own business. It is going to happen whether anybody likes it or not.
Um, no it’s not and you’re delusional if you really think it is.
Has there been an announcement yet? Or a rumor?
Not yet, but I want everyone to stop hurting my feelings. I want a Pokemon/Sailor Moon anime crossover to be announced and I want it announced now.
Its Monday all ready! How time flies.
There will never be this cross over. Well unless you count hentai doujin (sp) I’m sure you can dig some of that up if you like this is the internet after all.
My expectations are on a seesaw.
I cannot wait for seasons 4 and 5! To have all the asteroid senshi represented and the left out metal senshi like Sailor heavy metal Papillon, Leth et al!
Here was to hoping all these comments were actually constructive commentary and opinions, not punk ass luke basically being a hoe again. Throwing water? That’s the shit girls do on tv shows like Mob Wives or Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. Goodbye.
On a related note, unfortunately I don’t think we’ll get a Saturn transformation, as there is no Hotaru body to transform from…
You know nothing, John Troll.
Shows how much you know since we did get one, hah.
You’re right, I don’t know, I didn’t know, it was a speculation, an idea, an educated guess. Saturn emerged from an alien daimon. Hotaru’s soul has been gone, it made no sense. Don’t be ignorant.
However, I’m extremely happy and content with the result, as you can see on my comment below. Again, don’t be fucking ignorant.
For someone who does a lot of smack talk, you sure have thin skin.
There’s a meltdown in here! Need help!
What you need is a shower. #SourCream
Hey TROLL, your comment is getting old.
Troll or realist? You decide.
I am actually talking about Luke’s meltdown not yours.
So back off and I don’t care what you are.
You replied to me, idiot. Luke’s not even on this thread.
Careful, he can’t take it as well as (he thinks) he deals it.
Yes you are right saintfighteraqua, what a thin skin indeed and a disdainful character!
And I would stop with the name calling oh I forgot, I am not even sure if I am talking to a “real” person. LOL
This is my post!
Ignorance and shit talking, are two different sides of the spectrum. However, if you think you’ve won an argument by teaming up with fellow nerd, then please carry on and use that as an excuse to continue living.
I just watched the episode, and it was amazing! The animation was one of the best so far! We got a small kind of transformation from Saturn so that’s a big plus! Great episode I must say! Really looking forward to the final episode of the season! Hope it’s as good as this one!!
And yes, there were a lot of stock footage, but at this point, that’s normal in SMC and sometimes they are needed to fill the 20 minutes of each episode when there’s not enough “source material” from the manga, giving that some acts are shorter than others, so just don’t pay much attention to that anymore!
Yooooo! We got a Saturn transformation! We got a Sailor Saturn fucking transformation son oh my God I cannot believe it!
Wait, they couldn’t do that for Pluto though?
I would use the word “transformation” loosely… more like an introduction.
Well, we got Saturn, along with the most recaps and stock footage yet. The Death Busters are terrifying. Germatoid was pretty creepy in the 90’s anime, but that whole fusion thing with Mistress 9 was pretty dark!
Hurray for a somewhat Saturn transformation!!!! Finally! But I am so sick of stock footage :/ on the other hand…..if they make Act 38 according to the manga and don’t leave anything out – we should see Helios at the end of next weeks episode
Thank god they made some descent animation. The flashbacks are getting to be obnoxious, the stock footage is way overused, but just seeing the faces looking good and not all jacked was enough to make me happy.
And can we just talk about how fucking sick Saturn’s entrance was?!? Freaking out, #fangirlinghard
*decent. not descent. #grammarfreak #stupidisasstupiddoes
To me, It does not look like there will be enough time for the Eclipse scene in last episode…
well lets just remember they snuck in chibi usa falling from the sky after the dark kingdom arc and took us all by surprise with the black moon arc so here is hoping that we see the eclipse and Pegasus next episode, plus we will have to get the super sailor scout outfits if there staying true to the manga, fingers totally crossed that we get the dreams arc and stars arc here
Saw the episode. Loved how disturbing Pharaoh 90 was. And I liked how beautiful Sailor Saturn was (which is a nice contrast, since Saturn is going to destroy all). But why, oh why, can’t those translators get that it’s “Death REBORN Revolution” not Death Ribbon Revolution. Fans have been complaining about that error for years, you’d think they would listen.
The translator made a mistake in translating “Death Reborn Revolution”.
The subtitle was “Death Ribbon Revolution” because as the Wikia states, “due to both names being written the same in katakana”
I know, but again, it’s a translation error that’s infamous to many fans for years. And it keeps happening. I worry it will happen with the dub as well.
The pun is that “Reborn” and “Ribbon” are written and pronounced the same way in Japanese. The attack involves ribbons surrounding Saturn and the enemy, while her powers are that of death and rebirth, hence “Reborn”. While I think “Death Reborn Revolution” is the best way to get the pun across, they’re not actually wrong in using “Death Ribbon Revolution”. No matter what the translation can’t truly reflect the pun.
As I said…
“due to both names being written the same in katakana”
the more angular form of kana (syllabic writing) used in Japanese, primarily used for words of foreign origin.
But the point is there was no mistake. Both are correct because there’s no proper way to translate the attack. There’s no way for an English translation to accurately use the same word for “Ribbon” and “Reborn”.
Sailormoon Wikia will back me up.
***Not to be confused with the video game attack “Death Ribbon Revolution.”
You’re citing a FAN wiki as a source.
デス・リボーン・レボリューション can be interpreted as either “Death Reborn Revolution” OR “Death Ribbon Revolution”. The original intention of the name is that it means both. Its a pun. A proper English translation must make the choice of either one, but neither are incorrect. There was no mistake, fact. I also prefer “Death Reborn Revolution” as the translation of choice but NEITHER are wrong.
I just wish some official source could settle this matter.
Please do not dismiss this FAN wiki because they are as passionate and loyal as we can get.
Hey ugly, I read that they were two different attacks, one being stronger than the other.
You still know nothing.
Did you know that the full moon in last night’s episode coincides with the Strawberry moon and summer solstice in real time. Amazing isn’t it?
It was a pretty moon, too!
Decent episode, good animation. I actually found the stock footage reasonably tolerable this episode, even though there was a lot of it. It’s sad that they have to resort to stock footage and flashbacks, but that’s the challenge of trying to match the manga 1:1 chapter per episode.
Any faults come from the manga itself rather then Crystal. I always thought Super Chibi Moon’s introduction sucked in the manga. Heaps of hype, only for her attack to fail spectacularly and for her to run out of power almost immediately. Lame!
Saturn’s introduction was suitably epic and full of dread. I don’t have any complaints there! Interesting to see that they really have settled for a purple tiara over white, but I guess it’s so her “Eternal” tiara’s colour is consistent with her normal and “Super” tiara. I wish the ribbons in DRR were yellow though,a little video game homage would’ve been cute!
That sounds quite likely!
Can we talk about how much of a bitch Sailor Saturn is? I fucking love her. “I’m always the uninvited guest” her expressions! She’s life.
She gives zero fucks!
She’s the Maleficent to my Philip.
Haha, I thought about Maleficent too. Under her reign, everyone falls asleep…
I had never paid attention to Saturn in the classic anime but now, she has become my second fav’ Senshi behind Pluto ! Naoko Takeuchi had a brilliant idea to give Saturn the appearance of a child : it’s even more terrifying…
Ooooh, good connection Aurelia, I didn’t even piece that part together!!
Thanks Matt .
Can you imagine Yzma awakening as Sailor Saturn. I think her spine would crack from those poses.
You’re right…Maleficent would be much more graceful.
Speaking of that, guys, what would you think of a Disney/Sailor Moon/Pokemon crossover ?
It WILL happen, and that’s that. And Elsa will hold Anna in her arms.
That is a brilliant way to describe her!
Saturn!!! My fave Outer was so Badass!!!
When I saw the purple ooze soup stuff I kept thinking about this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qJXWNV2wGu4
Also, is anyone else as bothered by the constant bullying on this blog? I mean, some teasing in good fun is okay, but there are some real trolls and morons posting on here and when it crosses over into bullying others, it goes too far.
I am really bothered because it does not have anything else to do. I strongly suggest a new love life or a long vacation is highly effective.
I’m sure it’s hard for Adam to control the comments when it’s just one person running his blog. This is why I mostly comment on the Facebook page these days.
I don’t spend a lot of time moderating, aside from approving stuff. I had to delete a few things the other day though since it’s getting a bit out of hand. I’d prefer not to spend too much of my time deleting posts and banning people instead of doing my posts and reviews!
Well, you can’t help it if bullies come to your page.I’m not blaming you for that.
But some of them have really been crossing the line lately. It’s too bad there’s not a flag button…though I can definitely see that getting abused.
And having to approve every message would delay some of our fun conversations.
It seems the only choices we have are to either ignore them or keep calling the jerks out.
Yes, I’m really bothered too. Sailor Moon is a cool stuff to talk about, it relieves our lives and that’s why I don’t understand why some people need to wage war on it… I like to tease people in good fun, but the thing is that on the Internet, indeed, all barriers tend to fall, and it “allows” some frustrated people to unleash all the repressed violence they have deep inside them. Internet often leads to dehumanization…
I don’t blame Adam at all, he has a lot to do in his every day life, like every single one of us here (yeah, even the trolls ! When they are not trolling, of course ).
On the contrary of Neon Genesis, I don’t use facebook anymore so I keep on posting here.
Same, I prefer here to facebook since it’s where I get to chat with you guys.
+1 to all points
It’s in good fun, no true hurt feelings intended @Luke Yannuzzi
But srsly, Felicia, stop spamming.
How about the other one?
Yaaass! Those boob sails, they just…
I can imagine the Witches 5 sailing on a big bunch of whatever Pharaoh 90 is while Kaorinite watches through her viewing pool singing this.
Omg it needs to happen!!! When Luke goes to animation school and makes his crossover (because let’s be clear, that’s the only way it’s seeing the light of day #dig #kindasorry #butnotsorry #gotoschoolluke) you need to put in a special request. Maybe the they sing their song from the musicals.
On closer inspection I think the sails are made from stockings…but it looks more like a giant bra with tassles!!
