For all my complaining last week, I ended up loving the Sailor Moon Crystal season wrap-up. I still think the cats were under-utilized, but hey, what are you going to do?
The battle was really over. It took a jolt to Sailor Moon to awaken the power of the Legendary Silver Crystal and drive Pharaoh 90 away. With that, Sailor Saturn did not have to swing down her Silence Glaive and destroy the world. She was able to sacrifice herself to finish the job and, with a little help from Sailor Pluto, seal him and the Tau Star System away for good.
I don’t know how I had forgotten about baby Hotaru until Sailor Saturn started talking about rebirth. So sweet. Michiru picks her up and decides she, Haruka, and Setsuna will all parent this girl who is getting a second chance at life.
I think we ended on a good note– sort of bittersweet, but leading right into the next season. Thoughts?!
