the dead moon circus

Nehelenia became Chibiusa’s ‘mini moon’. The power of the First and Third Taboo of Pluto’s power given to Sailor Moon made Nehelenia’s timeline and her kingdom skip forward into the future during her rebirth. Nehelenia was 'reborn’ during an eclipse and grew up during Older Chibiusa’s future. Since no one in the Moon Kingdom was born under an Umbra, Nehelenia was gifted to be Sailor Eclipse.

Long time no post! I’ve been kind of occupied with my full time job and my sketchbook doodles recently, so I’ve really only updated my instagram. But I missed updating my tumbles. Here’s a tiny collection of inktober stuff I did. Been deep in that Sailor Moon love recently. 

…Also wow, what a horrible week. This is a dark time for the citizens of the united states. Sending all my love out to others who are grieving. I will stand with all of you.

TRIVIA

  • The opening animation was altered to include the four guardian Sailor Senshi in their “super” forms, the Stallion Rêve, the Crystal Change Rods, and the Amazoness Quartet. The Amazon Trio was also removed.
  • Starting here, the episodes would no longer have previews narrated by Usagi at the beginning. The previews would return in Sailor Stars, though.

  • This episode marked the first physical appearances of Queen Nehelenia and the Amazoness Quartet. The latter was finally named as well.
  • The Golden Mirror plot was introduced.

LASTS

  • Fire Soul was seen for the last time in the television series.

OTHER VERSIONS

  • Cloverway’s English dub (titled “A New Nightmare”):

    VesVes, PallaPalla, and CereCere’s names were respectively changed to BesuBesu, ParaPara, and CeleCele.

    The Amazoness Quartet was renamed the Amazon Quartet.

    In the English version, Zirconia said to Queen Nehelenia that she had trained new Amazons. Yet Nehelenia was the one who discovered the four girls and gave them their powers.

    The Quartet commented that the Amazon Trio told them about the Sailor Scouts. However, the Amazoness and the Trio never actually met.

  • The original Korean dub:

    While all episodes with the Amazon Trio were omitted, some footage from those episodes were edited into this one.
