This week’s Sailor Moon Crystal started with the sudden announcement that Chibiusa is, in fact, currently dead. People don’t really seem as concerned as they should be, because duh, they simply need to restore her soul to her body. Said soul was ripped out by Mistress 9, who swallows the Legendary Silver Crystal by the time the episode is done. Mamoru uses himself as life support for Chibiusa’s body, which they have no problem stealing from whatever hospital she resided in. While that happens, the outer senshi decide that killing Hotaru is for sure the only way to help Chibiusa.
Mistress 9 makes it clear that Kaorinite must take care of the sailor senshi, so Kaorinite revives the Witches 5, ’cause that worked so well last time. The Witches 5 separate the inners and trap them in their dreams. Sailor Moon sees through the ploy and the outer senshi see that the inners are in trouble. Finally, finally, finally we see them all fight together.
Everyone lends Sailor Moon their power and she becomes Super Sailor Moon again. This was a fantastic moment, and a great episode!
I’m looking forward to Sailor Saturn awakening… soon! Thoughts?!
