Sailor Moon SuperS episode 158 - Chibiusa kissing Pegasus

As with every Monday two new episodes of Sailor Moon have been added to Hulu and Neon Alley. This week we get Sailor Moon SuperS episodes 158 and 159. A ton of plot is given as Chibiusa switches ages with Usagi, deepens her relationship with Pegasus and keeps it all from her friends.

Sailor Moon SuperS episode 158 - Old Sailor Chibi Moon and Young Sailor Moon

Episode 158, Pegasus’s Secret: the Boy Who Protects the Dream World, is sort of like the plot of a 1988 comedy movie. That year brought us Vice Verse and 18 Again, two movies where the main characters envied each other’s ages and through magic switched bodies! Something like this happens as Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon, bickering in front of PallaPalla, are complaining that the other has it better at their age. PallaPalla uses her magic to grant their wish, and high jinx ensues. Usagi is young which is mostly silly. Chibiusa gets older which to her is a big change. This hasn’t happened since that time she was evil! Oddly old Chibiusa doesn’t look that much like Black Lady which doesn’t make much sense to me. Well Chibiusa is old but it seems Pegasus isn’t all that into her anymore, which is oddly inappropriate. Chibiusa meets him once again in her dream and he gives her the exposition of all exposition. We learn that he’s really a boy named Helios and that his kingdom of Elysion was attacked and that he’s being held hostage by the villain who we still don’t really see. We kind of get more plot now than we have all season. Chibiusa finally goes back to being young again, sparking Pegasus’s interest once more. They go to kiss each other as Pegasus reveals his true form as Helios.

Sailor Moon SuperS episode 159 - Makoto and Rei quizzing Chibusa about the mysterious boy

Episode 159, Chibi-Usa’s Little Rhapsody of Love, is a great comedy episode. Chibiusa’s love of Pegasus is beginning to become obvious to Usagi and her friends, but Chibiusa is never actually seen with any boys so everyone is wondering just who it is she’s infatuated with! Thus begins the inquisition! First Rei and Makoto try to drill her for information, but this just results in Makoto repeatedly assuming it’s her “sempai”. When Minako and Ami try to get to the bottom of it they learn that Chibiusa is in love with someone who is white with a long face. The audience knows this is Pegasus but without knowing this is a horse this sounds like the description of a frightening looking man with a horse face. Chibiusa is at a pond looking at some fish and there happens to be a terribly unattractive man there who everyone decides must be the object of Chibiusa’s affections. Sadly he is not but by sheer coincidence he is being targeted by JunJun so a little battle ensues.

Sailor Moon SuperS episode 152 - Nanako and Rei

The two latest episodes of Sailor Moon SuperS were added to Hulu and Neon Alley this morning. This week we get a couple of hilarious episodes with episodes 152 and 153. First Rei has an admirer who wants to be just like her and then Usagi and Chibiusa get cavities as a fake dentist pops up in town.

Sailor Moon SuperS episode 152 - Nanako Baba

Episode 152, Flames of Passion: Mars’s Raging Super Attack, is the one where Sailor Mars powers up sort of. Rei is on the cover of Boys’ Press magazine, which is better than the last time someone from the Hikawa Shrine was in a magazine, that being the warning that her grandfather was harassing girls. Boys from all over are dropping by to get a look at this beautiful Shrine Maiden, generating good business. Nanako, a young girl who idolizes Rei, takes up a part time job at the shrine and goes so far as to wear a black wig to look just like her. Nanako is a strange girl with actual stars in her eyes, something that occasionally happens to characters in the series but not in a permanent way. Rei has a bunch of dreams, which basically lead to international success, but she doesn’t think Nanako’s dream is legit as it’s just wanting to be like someone else, but when Nanako overhears this she’s heartbroken. VesVes doesn’t think her dream is too shabby though as she’s targeting her in this episode, which leads to a humorous monster ManeMane Musume who imitates the Sailor Guardians all while suggestively shaking her butt. Finally Sailor Mars uses her Mars Flame Sniper for the first time, continuing the trend of Sailor Guardians powering up since getting their Super transformations. Nanako has moved on from emulating Rei and now works at a McDonalds’ style restaurant and even makes it to the cover of the ever popular Boys’ Press magazine. How often does this thing come out?

Sailor Moon SuperS episode 153 - Chibiusa and Usagi get cavities

Episode 153, Dentist of Horrors? Palla-Palla’s House, is all about cavities. We see a time stamped summary of an average night for Usagi and Chibiusa. This seems to involve a lot of eating sweets and not brushing their teeth. The excuse for not brushing is that it will remove the sweet taste from their mouth. Is this a real thing? I have quite a sweet tooth, and the cavities to back it up, but I’ve never delayed brushing because it felt better to keep sugar in my mouth. Chibiusa seems to go to bed at 10:51pm, which seems a bit late. The next morning Usagi and Chibiusa have cavities! They are afraid of the awful Juuban dentist but that’s okay because there is a new dentist in town! The dentist is actually made by PallaPalla who made the building, dentist and dental assistant out of dolls. She ripped the head off of the woman and so she wears a scarf! So weird. During the fight Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon use the Supersonic Waves attack, one we have not seen since the first episode, in which loud screaming is amplified to cause disaster. It turns out this was all a plot and most of the children who are going to this new dentist have fake cavities, but Usagi and Chibiusa’s cavities are real. Oops! Now they have to go to that creepy dentist.

Sailor Moon SuperS episodes 150 and 151 are now available on Hulu

Sailor Moon SuperS episode 150 - The Amazoness Quartet in civilian form

This week on Sailor Moon SuperS we are introduced to the Amazoness Quartet as episodes 150 and 151 are added to Hulu and Neon Alley. First the Dead Moon Circus, which arrived in town over 20 episodes ago, arrives in town? and then Ami has an Internet romance with a young musician.

Sailor Moon SuperS episode 150 - CereCere attacks Ziriconia

Episode 150, The Amazoness: Nightmare from Behind the Mirrors, introduces us to the Amazoness Quartet. Last week I mentioned that not much had happened this season and this episode reminds us of that. There is a circus in town! The Dead Moon Circus. That damned tent showed up out of nowhere during the eclipse in episode 128 and we’re only now getting around to addressing it? Nehelenia, this season’s main villain, is seen only briefly in a mirror at the beginning of this episode. Better late than never! I am kind of joking when I say that nothing has happened yet this season, but the Korean dub actually skipped everything up to this episode and just had to insert something about the Super transformations into the fight to make it all make sense. Anyway, the Amazoness Quartet are kind of cool. CereCere, VesVes, JunJun and PallaPalla are terribly behaved young girls. They not only argue with Zirconia but CereCere tries to actually fight her, which only ends because Zirconia turns out to be more powerful. As villains they are less objectionable than sleazy pick up artists and seem to fit with the whole circus theme more as they do acrobatics. The target this week is Momoko. Again. But there isn’t much focus on her as she just sort of tags along with the gang to go to the circus. The Amazoness Quartet aren’t quite as invasive in getting the Mirror of Dreams from their targets as they do so by knocking a pool ball into them, usually after doing some sort of elaborate trick shot. The episode closes with the Amazoness Quartet getting massaged which is a testament to their slacker attitudes.

Sailor Moon SuperS episode 151 - Ami naked

Episode 151, True Power Explodes: Ami’s Melody of the Heart, is the episode where we see Ami naked. Ami was chilling on the Internet before it was cool! Remember that this episode was released nearly 20 years ago, in November of 1995. The Internet wasn’t what it is today back then. Ami is downloading music on a computer network almost 4 years before Napster! She downloaded some music by user N. T. and is so into him that she’s writing poetry inspired by his music. Ami meets up with N. T. who is actually Toshiyuki Nishino, a young piano player who, much to Ami’s disappointment, has a girlfriend named Kyouko! Note that the initials N. T. apply because in Japanese the family name comes before the given name when stated, so he would be Nishino Toshiyuki. Then we get into this whole Ami powering up to Sailor Mercury thing. During the fight we cut to a scene with a fully naked Ami which should make some fans happy. She talks to Sailor Mercury, which is odd since Ami and Sailor Mercury are never before shown as being different people, and this causes her to do some kind of awakening. Why are we doing this? Pegasus powered everyone up a bunch of episodes ago. Now we are making every character do some sort of episode centred on them so that they can embrace their new powers. Another sign that we could have completely skipped the first half of the season and just started with episode 150 and using these sort of special episodes as reasons to power everyone up one at a time. Perhaps Ami just talks to herself because she has no family, as we learn briefly about her dead beat father who isn’t around and sends her a painting.
