Sailor Moon R episodes 87-89 review
So I’m finished with Sailor Moon R. (And so I like to start a lot of sentences with the word “so.”) The first two of these three episodes (87-88) were fairly good, the final battle with Prince Dimande and Wiseman, where Sailor Moon gets Chibi-Usa to use “the power of love” to defeat the enemy. Eventually it simply takes enough convincing, and Chibi-Usa gets enough power to break free of her spell and beat the bad guys.
Then Episode 89 is something I’ve never seen before, a cross between a clip show and a preview show. Basically it’s a recrap episode, except of future scenes rather than past ones. And the Sailor Guardians spend the entire episode arguing with each other during these scenes. They’re the same scenes over and over, too; very little is actually revealed. This wasn’t the way to get me interested in a new season, that’s for sure.
But I will start reviewing Sailor Moon S, sometime. Look forward to it!
