This week’s Sailor Moon Crystal was another seemingly slow episode to me because I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of Sailor Saturn.
Hotaru & Chibiusa were the stars of this episode. Trapped inside the body of Mistress 9, Hotaru is guarding the soul of Chibiusa and the Legendary Silver Crystal. Since Mistress 9 can’t pull at the crystal’s power, she devours the souls of Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Venus… only Hotaru won’t let her have those either. Realizing she herself is just a soul, Hotaru restores the souls of the sailor senshi. She revives Chibiusa and promptly fades away out of existence. Still, she felt something greater in herself… we see a silhouette of Sailor Saturn for now.
Chibiusa is heartbroken over the loss of her dear friend. It gives her the strength to fight along with the other sailor senshi. It’s funny, but her Pink Sugar Heart Attack does more than Sailor Moon’s Moon Spiral Heart Attack. Chibi Moon wishes to be like Sailor Moon, and when the senshi lend Sailor Moon their power for a Super Sailor Moon upgrade, another chalice appears and we meet Super Sailor Chibi Moon.
And the battle is on! Thoughts?!
