USAGI TSUKINO: HERO

Rei though. Allow me to focus on Rei, as you know I must.

First is how expertly Rei steers Usagi into fighting. Usagi’s worked herself up into such a panic that she isn’t even seeing that someone needs help. (Or if she’s seeing it, it can’t register above how intently she’s freaking out right now.) Doesn’t even stop Rei, this isn’t a problem. She’s only been around for a couple of weeks at best, but Rei’s already got Usagi down. Usagi doesn’t want to fight, the answer is to give her greater motivation. If you DON’T fight, we’ll all become possessed.

AND HELL NO THAT SHIT IS EVEN SCARIER

Rei’s completely talking out of her ass here, she doesn’t know what’s going on. (We know she doesn’t, because she’s wrong about it.) But she picks something that sounds scary and will affect Usagi directly in order to raise the stakes. And it WORKS PERFECTLY.

The other great part is that this is Rei saying, in not so many words, that they need Usagi too. If Rei thought Usagi was useless, she’d just get her out of the way. SUPER easy to do. “Run to your room and lock the door until I come and get you.” Usagi would be gone before Rei could’ve finished the sentence. Rei does the exact opposite. She goads Usagi into fighting, because she knows they’re better for it. They’re stronger with Usagi than without her.

But even more than that, it’s better for USAGI. Pushing Usagi to be better is what Rei does. Even here in the beginning, when their relationship is at their most strained, when Rei’s at her grumpiest, when Usagi’s being her most difficult, still that’s the job Rei has taken on herself. It’s not encouragement as you might typically see it, but it’s encouragement all the same. Rei never lets up on pushing Usagi, because nobody believes Usagi can do it more than Rei does.

image

#omg i’m so touched #by the video admission of a special jjongaholic #it’s a testament of how beautiful they are together #just the aura that they gave out as a couple #because even when watching them #without listening to any sound #my fellow jjongaholic could appreciate the jjongah #and has his mood lifted by their vibe and evergy #makes no different than with any jjongaholic out there #cuz we all felt the same anyways #SOBS THIS IS SO BEAUTIFUL #and you could tell the jjongah is touched as well #yes jjongah #that’s how beautiful you two are #and i hope you keep on doing #whatever it is you two have been doing #because it is indeed something good and rare and special #and i don’t know what it is about you two #but you could touch people’s heart

image

#OKAY #FINE #look perfect together as you write your thanks on the photobook or whatever #what’s with the same exact angling and posturing when you write #like GEEZ jjongah #will you guys stop shooting a drama with everything you do already #sawry #i forgot i just told you guys #to keep doing whatever you’ve been doing #oops my bad #omg jonghyun’s words are so beautiful though #we’ll be a couple that give you good feelings regardless of the sounds #sobs #yes jjong pls keep on being a beautiful couple #no matter what sounds #even those you might hear that might be discouraging #and ahyoung’s notes fits her perfectly #with her cheerful and bright tone and the colourful hearts she drew

THEY NEVER BOTHER TO EXPLAIN WHY THE PLACE APPEARS TO BE RUN BY A VAMPIRE, A WOLFMAN, AND A FRANKENSTEIN’S MONSTER AND THAT’S FANTASTIC

Rei’s just, “Oh they were scared,” and Usagi’s “Well sure, I get that,” AND THAT’S IT THAT IS AS FAR AS IT GOES

Rei is adorably worried about Ami right now, and that is triggering all kinds of Rei and Ami emotions I just did not need at one in the morning.

I’ve already commented how it’s unfortunate that this episode gets wrapped up in such a neat little bow, with Sakiko’s father supposedly seeing the light within approximately the next two minutes, and the implication that he and Sakiko will live happily ever after. I call absolutely no way on any of that. I give her father three weeks, maybe a month, before this incident fades and he’s right back where they started, only this time he’ll be BETTER, he’ll have MORE CONTROL. I say this because her father learns exactly nothing, and none of the issues that caused him to abuse her in the first place are even remotely resolved. This WILL happen again, which is why I remain firm in my headcanon that the Senshi find out, rescue Sakiko, and she and Miharu will become the awesome support that each other desperately needs. IT WILL HAPPEN THE END.

So this episode sort of sucks on the resolution front, but up until that point, it really doesn’t shy away from the issue. I really very much love how it handles the idea of this ghost. It’s all of Sakiko’s pain and anger manifest into something powerful and destructive, and so much bigger than her.
