The Black Moon story arc of Sailor Moon Crystal is now available to view in English on Hulu and Neon Alley in its entirety. Now that the first 26 episodes of the series have been dubbed we should expect a lengthy break before we see any other English episodes of Sailor Moon Crystal. The Infinity arc has only started to be available subbed so it will be a while until that dubbing takes place.
Crystal Tokyo is finally saved, thanks to the help of Sailor Chibi Moon. Sailor Moon must be careful not to see the future version of herself, which she does anyway with no consequence. This is the home video version of the animation which is updated from the original streaming version. The main change here is Chibiusa’s updated broach in the final scene. I mostly wrote but never got around to posting my final Blu-Ray review and that’s the most significant thing I recall from it.
The final episode of the Black Moon story will be available to view in English on Hulu and Neon Alley May 6th starting at 9pm Eastern Time. Act 26, Replay – Never Ending, will be the last English episode we will see for a while. Will the Death Phatom be defeated?
This episode features this silly thing about the old and future versions of Usagi not seeing each other. Ready to see the universe implode?
The latest English dubbed episode of Sailor Moon Crystal is now available on Hulu and Neon Alley. We’re almost at the end of the Black Moon story arc this week with Act 25, Showdown – Death Phantom. Sailor Pluto stops time which is a taboo and the consequences might get Diana a full time job.
Chibiusa finally became a Sailor Guardian this week as we see her transformation into Sailor Chibi Moon. Next week is the last episode of this story arc and it will also be the last English dubbed episode we’ll likely see in a while. The new Infinity episodes of Sailor Moon Crystal won’t likely be dubbed for some time.
The next English dubbed episode of Sailor Moon Crystal will be available tomorrow at 9pm Eastern Time on Hulu and Neon Alley. This story arc is almost done with Act 25, Showdown – Death Phantom, as the gang are trying to defeat the evil Death Phantom.
This episode marks the first appearance of Sailor Chibi Moon! There’s also potentially good news for Diana who might have a full time job in her future!
The latest English dubbed episode of Sailor Moon Crystal is now available to view on Hulu and Neon Alley. This week on Act 24, Attack – Black Lady, Chibiusa continues being the evil Black Lady. She has enslaved her father to make him her boyfriend!
With things getting real Sailor Pluto must abandon her post and to do so… she leaves Diana in charge. This update is being scheduled to be posted automatically while I’m on vacation in Italy. To do this I had to leave someone at my work in charge to cover my duties, and I was lucky to have someone well versed in my duties to do so. What exactly is part of Sailor Pluto’s job that Diana is able to do? Does she get paid for it? Oh well. At least we get a look at young Sailor Pluto this week!
Next week is Act 25, Showdown – Death Phantom. The season is almost done with just a couple of episodes left. Big changes are in store for Chibiusa!
The next English dubbed episode of Sailor Moon Crystal will be released on Hulu and Neon Alley this Friday at 9pm Eastern Time. Act 24, Attack – Black Lady, continues with Chibiusa being Black Lady and making out with her dad.
We will get real cute moment with Sailor Pluto this week as we see a flashback to when she was young. Sailor Pluto will also give Diana a part time job which makes one wonder what her actual job is if a tiny kitten can do it.
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!
The next English dubbed episode of Sailor Moon Crystal will be available on Hulu and Neon Alley this Friday, April 15th, at 9pm Eastern Time. This week on Act 23, Covert Maneuvers – Wiseman, we finally get a proper look at Black Lady, the evil older version of Chibiusa who’s all about making out with her dad. Chibiusa has used magic to be aged and time travel to meet a younger version of her father. The result? A father/daughter combo that is the same age and Chibiusa is all about kissing her dad!
I joke but the reasons for Black Lady having these feelings for her father are complex. Take a young girl without a true understanding of her feelings who naturally has a love for her father and artificially age her prematurely and the result is this mess we’ve found ourselves in. Usagi is, naturally, not terribly pleased with the situation! Black Lady, who was heard briefly last week, is voiced by Sandy Fox who also plays Chibiusa. Her voice for Black Lady is quite different from what we’re used to hearing.
The latest English dubbed episode of Sailor Moon Crystal is now available on Hulu and Neon Alley. This week is Act 22, Hidden Agenda – Nemesis. Black Lady is still not really here. She’s semi visible, mostly obscured in a kind of mist. The technique used for this was changed slightly between the streaming release and the DVD/Blu-Ray version which is what we’re getting for these English versions. This screenshot is, lazily, from the original streaming version.
Act 21 and 22 of Sailor Moon Crystal are based on the equivalent chapters of the newest version of the manga, but these were actually originally a single chapter, though it was a long one. This makes gives this and the last episode an odd pace, which is why Chibiusa’s transformation into Black Lady is teased out over such a long time that it seems like a powered up attack from Dragonball Z or maybe Ryu’s multi episode Hadouken from Street Fighter II V.
Next week on Act 23, Covert Maneuvers – Wiseman, we will get a proper look at Black Lady.
The next English dubbed episode of Sailor Moon Crystal will be available on Hulu and Neon Alley this Friday, April 8th, staring at 9pm Eastern Time. Act 22, Hidden Agenda – Nemesis, is all about not really seeing Black Lady. We see these shadows of her throughout but we don’t get a clear look at her. The obscuring of Black Lady changed a bit for the Blu-Ray release, which is the updated animation we’re getting for the dub. This screenshot is actually from the original streaming version.
I feel like this episode is kind of slow. That’s probably because Act 21 and 22 were originally one manga chapter which was broken into two. It gives this episode a weird pace.
