Plot: The final battle between the Sailor Senshi and the Death Busters begins.
The Space Sword and Deep Aqua Mirror were returned to Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune respectively. The two Sailor Senshi performed unnamed attacks with those weapons, too.
Shabon Spray and the original Crescent Beam were both seen for the last time.
Germatoid physically appeared for the first time, but this episode included his final appearance as well.
Haruka and Michiru’s helicopter was destroyed.
This episode featured the only use of Time Stop.
Cloverway’s English dub (titled “Who’s Really Who?”):
Burning Mandala was called “Mars Fire Ignite” rather than “Mars Celestial Fire Surround.”
Sailor Pluto seemingly died to save her teammates from the helicopter explosion. When the missing Talismans reappeared, Sailors Uranus and Neptune heard Pluto say “talisman.” Yet in the dub, Pluto actually had a brief conversation with Uranus and Neptune despite the fact that she is supposed to be dead.
The mute, doll-like daimon were given clownish voices.
As she ran towards Germatoid with her sword, Sailor Uranus just shouted “Uranus” instead of an actual attack name.
Sailor Moon’s four guardians referred to their force field as a “Sailor Box.” The scene, originally silent, was filled with dialogue between the Sailor Scouts.
Textbooks reluctantly write it as 384,400 km on average. But How on earth did they figure out how far the moon was? Here is an interesting way:
The Lunar Laser Ranging Experiment.
The ongoing Lunar Laser Ranging Experiment measures the distance between the Earth and the Moon using laser ranging.
Lasers on Earth are aimed at retro-reflectors ( device or surface that reflects light back to its source with a minimum of scattering.) planted on the Moon during the Apollo program (11, 14, and 15), and the time for the reflected light to return is determined.
The distance to the Moon is calculated approximately using this equation:
Distance = (Speed of light × Time taken for light to reflect) / 2.
(since distance=speed* time )
The reflected light is too weak to be seen with the human eye: out of 1017 photons aimed at the reflector, only one will be received back on Earth every few seconds, even under good conditions. They can be identified as originating from the laser because the laser is highly monochromatic.
There you have it! The distance between the moon and the earth, and also conclusive proof that astronauts did land on the moon.
Can you test this in your backyard ? Unfortunately no ! You would need highly sensitive detectors and a laser that can shoot 1017 green 532 nm photons per pulse. Not to mention the fancy electronics ! Phew !
So here’s the Team Galaxy fanart I said I would do. So idk if it’s clear or not, since I’m didn’t know how to make the movement more clear, but Space is hitting Buster (the blue one next to him) on the head, because he’s beeing a jerk to Fluffy all the time… because he’s the newer “better” version of Fluffy and should replace him.
If you want to see for it yourselfs, it’s episode 23. Every episode that’s about Fluffy is a good episode imo. xD (spoiler: Buster did not replace Fluffy. ;P)
Also I just realized while drawing and looking at the references that Fluffy and Buster have some weirdly shaped legs. ok, I tryed the best I could. ^^” I spend so much time with the lineart, yet it still looks kinda meh. :P And sorry for the lazy background, but after a while I just wanted it to be finished.
