INFINITY 6 – Three Guardians

Recap: Sailor Pluto is back, as we saw in the previous episode, and Chibi Moon immediately asks her if she’s real. She answers that she was brought back by Neo Queen Serenity’s power, and Sailor Moon transforms into Serenity in front of the entire group. Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune introduce themselves to her as the Outer Solar System Guardians, and Pluto follows suit.

INFINITY 5 Setsuna Meioh – SAILOR PLUTO

Recap: 

Setsuna was introduced at the very end of the previous episode, as a student at the Academy. (How is she alive? It is a mystery that may be explained in a future episode.) At the beginning of episode 32, she’s in her lab researching the distorted space around Sankakusu. Sankakusu is looking pretty bad, what with giant dark clouds looming above it and all…

INFINITY 4 Haruka Tenoh, Michiru Kaioh – SAILOR URANUS, SAILOR NEPTUNE

Hey, we’re finally at the episode where we get to see Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus’ transformations!

Recap: As soon as the episode begins, Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus face off with the other Sailor Guardians, insisting that they’re not allies. After Chibimoon remarks that Neptune’s mirror is one of the talismans (since Michiru called it her talisman last episode) the group assumes she’s been causing their bad dreams. Instead of stating if she did cause them one way or another, Sailor Uranus performs a World Shaking at the group to get them to go away. It works. We don’t see exactly what happens, as the scene changes, but the main group is physically unharmed when we see them again. They’re mostly angry that Uranus attacked them, but Moon really wants to know if they’re actually their enemy or not.

INFINITY 3 – Two New Soldiers

(I like how the title says Soldiers but the subs/official merchandise all say Guardians now.)

Recap: Immediately after being kissed by Sailor Uranus, Sailor Moon wonders if she’s Haruka. When she meets up with the others at headquarters, she recollects the kiss, but refuses to tell any of them about it.

That night, she dreams of Haruka/Uranus, and is told in her dream that Uranus and Neptune have a limited time to complete their goal of collecting the talismans. Hotaru, Rei, and Mamoru are also seen waking up from a nightmare that explains that collecting the three talismans will appease the Deity of Destruction, which is a Bad Thing. Rei in particular feels that this is a bad hunch.

Sailor Moon Crystal Episode 29 Review

Where’s episode 28? Read this post to find out why I skipped it.

Recap: Two mysterious Sailor Guardians (who are totally Neptune and Uranus) have been watching the group, seemingly every time something of note happens. The current Guardians are wary of the two, and wonder if they’re friendly or the enemy.

Hotaru Tomoe is comforted by Chibimoon, who grows fascinated by the quiet girl’s healing ability. Hotaru tells everyone they should leave the grounds of the school before the guards catch them, and they do so upon reassuring the two mysterious Guardians are gone.

The scene changes to Hotaru at home, where we learn that the woman seen in the previous two episodes, Kaolinite, acts as a mother-like caregiver for her, since her actual mother passed away some time ago. Hotaru doesn’t approve of Kaolinite, and her ways of sucking up to her father, Dr. Tomoe. Dr. Tomoe is seen giving Hotaru a crystal while she tries to sleep, so that she feels better. Apparently, Hotaru has some sort of health condition which causes her to collapse/feel faint. She notices that when her father gives her the crystal, he feels unusually cold.

Sailor Moon Crystal Episode 27 Review

 INFINITY 1 – Premonition – First Part

Much like JoJo, Sailor Moon Crystal has started up again! Unlike JoJo, though, Sailor Moon Crystal‘s schedule wasn’t the clearest. Up until the day it aired, I had no idea what time it was going to start. Was it going to be in the morning, the afternoon, or what? How often were episodes going to be released? Twice a month again? I read from some sources that the episodes were to be weekly, unlike the first two seasons, but I wasn’t sure if that was true or not. (This is why I said they were probably using the ‘first and third Saturday’ a month schedule again when I reviewed the trailer. Turns out I was wrong! Oops!)

Apparently Sailor Moon Crystal will be airing every Monday for 13 weeks. Good to know!

Anyway, I was hesitant about this episode because of how inconsistent Crystal was before. I mean, just how much could Toei improve?
