MAMORU THIS IS LITERALLY THE DORKIEST AND MOST RIDICULOUS THING YOU’VE EVER DONE AND THAT’S SAYING SOMETHING

YOU RENTED A MINI BLIMP. YOU HAVE GIANT DERPY REINDEER BALLOONS AND A SANTA SUIT WITH CHRISTMAS MUSIC. ALL OF THIS JUST TO ENCOURAGE YOUR GIRLFRIEND TO KICK ASS.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN PLANNING THIS. DID YOU ACTUALLY BUY THIS STUFF SO YOU COULD UTILIZE IT AT A MOMENT’S NOTICE? OR DID YOU RENT IT FOR THE CHRISTMAS SEASON, ASSUMING THAT THE MONSTER OF THE DAY DOESN’T TAKE HOLIDAY BREAKS? OR BETTER YET, DID YOU JUST WALK INTO A STORE SOMEWHERE AT THE LAST MINUTE AND DEMAND ALL OF THESE THINGS? 

Ladies and gentlemen, our future King.

ALRIGHT LET’S GET THIS STARTED.

A few things to enjoy here.

1. Usagi’s space helmet is designed with her odangos in mind.
2. Nevermind the fact that she and the senshi can (and have) use Sailor Teleport to get there, LET’S GO TO THE MOON ON A ROCKET.
3. Moreover, LET’S RIDE ON TOP OF THE ROCKET. BECAUSE REASONS.
4. The moon, the very place where Usagi was originally born and was to be the queen of, is utterly done with her nonsense hahaha.

Okay so first, a question.

I think someone else may have brought this up before - @keyofjetwolf perhaps? - about how they thought it was odd that Minako actually called her Super Sailor Moon, and I have to say I agree (and Jet Wolf please correct me if this wasn’t you!).

Has anyone ever actually CALLED her Super Sailor Moon before? Like to her face (haven’t watched the S arc in a long time)? Why is it necessary? Super Sailor Moon is her power upgrade, but she’s still Sailor Moon, and they’ve always referred to her as such. And you certainly don’t see the senshi in later seasons actually calling each other Super Sailor Mars, etc.

BUT ANYWAY

Haruka’s “I won’t let her die!” is actually killing me. Because at this point in the series, Haruka had been lecturing Usagi about her idealism, how not everyone can be saved all the time and that one (or a few) people dying for the greater good of all was necessary. And here, Usagi is actually about to do just that. She knows the Silver Crystal could take her life, and she’s planning on using it to stop Kaguya (also I’m crying about how when it’s other people in danger or sacrificing themselves, Usagi is all “NO I WILL FIND ANOTHER WAY” but when it’s her turn to lay down her life she’s all “I DON’T CARE WHAT HAPPENS TO ME I JUST WANT TO SAVE EVERYONE”. BASICALLY AS LONG AS EVERYONE ELSE LIVES, USAGI IS OKAY AND THAT JUST DESTROYS ME OMG I LOVE USAGI SO MUCH).

But Haruka won’t allow it. This time, Haruka is being the idealist. They have to find another way BECAUSE HARUKA WON’T LET USAGI DIE.

I JUST HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS

Oh god, the scene afterwards when Usagi and Chibiusa thought they were dead…

First of all, Mamoru freaking out and screaming because he thought he lost Usagi. And then the look on his face when he realized she was fine. It gave me too many feels.

And then when Usagi wakes up…At first, she’s very weak. But then she realizes Chibiusa hasn’t woken up yet and she quite literally springs to life and practically jumps at her to make sure she’s okay. And then the look on HER face when she realizes Chibiusa is just fine.

Seriously, if you don’t love this family, then you are wrong.

Okay, it’s funny, because I distinctly remember the English dub version of this episode from when I was a kid. When Zoisite spoke to Mamoru/Darien in his room in the dub, before she left, she was like “Oh, by the way, your shoulder looks bad. You should get it checked out or something LOLOLOL BYE BITCH.” And he obviously didn’t say it in the original.

I kind of like how dub!Zoisite said that. It was snarky and bitchy and I loved it.

Also, I am having Minako feels.

She just met up with all of the senshi. She realizes how important it is to protect the princess and be the leader, so she feels like she can’t really be herself. Even when she is Minako and not Sailor Venus, she is still acting like Sailor Venus.

And that must kill her a little bit. She was alone for awhile before the rest of the girls had even awakened. She was the lone senshi who realized her destiny before everyone else. She probably really missed her fellow soldiers and friends. And she has her soldiers back, but not her friends. She realizes she doesn’t have time for friends. Their mission is more important.

Minako bby, let me love you.
