Rei has been Sailor Mars for 26 seconds. I timed it.
I also LOVE how Rei is the first Senshi to defeat the Monster of the Day on her own. I think you can count the amount of times on two hands that someone other than Sailor Moon vanquishes the MotD.
I find it so sad that after being introduced as senshi and fighting maybe one single battle on their own, all of the inners couldn’t handle a fight anymore without Sailor Moon’s help, nor defeating an enemy all by themselves like in this episode. Not even combining their powers and not even in the episodes focusing on only one of them. Heck, there were 200 episodes <_<
I really hope in the new anime the other senshi (especially the inners) can have their episodes where they have to fight THEIR own battles (and win of course xD) relying only on their strenght and powers… not always on Sailor Moon’s last minute attack. It would be so cool! *_* (and would make the episodes less repetitive ^^’)
It kind of makes sense though, since Usagi’s attacks advanced a hell of a lot faster than the other senshi. Especially when she became the princess. But I guess it would be nice to see some variety at who wins.
I also would like (if they get to the Outer Senshi) for them not harp on how the inners are weak compared to the outers. They each have their own strengths AND weaknesses.

That was a very cute video! I love the song with it from Anastasia. :) And it wasn’t like I was trying to discredit Manga!UsaMamo because they are amazing…..and of course, perfect.
yet I just think that Anime!UsaMamo doesn’t get enough credit. The manga’s relationship of them gets ALL THE CREDIT, which I don’t mind but I just think people tend to either hate, gloss over, or ignores the feels in the anime. :)
Happy V-day, Soul Sista! <33

WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? omg. I THOUGHT I RAN YOU AWAY. :(
When something is judged for being plain. First of all, I pretty much hate the word plain in every context. It’s an adjective that I’ve had all too much experience with.
Peers: Wow Claudia you act so plain, you’re never exciting!
Professors: Well, I really liked your story but it’s just…
I reblogged this from my personal blog, and I think it can be easily applied to characters from Sailor Moon.
I’ve seen bashing of everyone from Setsuna to Ami to Mamoru for their character traits. So I’m assuming they need to start making allegiance to Chaos or have flower petals floating past their heads in order to makes some sort of dent in the fandom on the importance pyramid.
It’s sort of ironic how a show that is centric to a young 14 year old girl who’s the most unlikely candidate to be the most powerful senshi in the universe comes with a fandom that does the most horrible bashing of characters/characteristics.
Of course everyone has their opinions, AND YES, parts of the anime become a little monotonous with some characters. However, my take is, as a writer and a person, if a character wasn’t meant to be important, then they would not be written into a series. There is a reason to every character,every setting, every POV.
So what if you think Mercury’s attacks are weak because they are ice/water-based? I don’t see any attacks on Neptune, and they have similar elements. Mamoru’s boring? Tell me something that hasn’t been said to me before. Plus, with him being Tuxedo Mask, Prince Endymion, freaking Moonlight Knight, and a child who has a unexplored past with the death of his parents and being an orphan, I really will never see THAT point. Then there are the supporting characters, the monsters of the day, the villains that have all been called plain and boring. Sorry, but there wouldn’t be an anime without them. It fleshes out the story and gives a lot more perspective that could never be explored in a couple volumes of a manga series.
But of course, who I am? I’m just a plain blogger! So I’d advise you to take this with a grain of rice (and you can find rice with Ikuko Tsukino, who’s also been called (you guessed it) too plain)
silvermoon424 requested a rebloggable version of my thoughts so here I go!
xosailormars said: I 100000000% agree with you. With the obvious exception of Haruka and Michiru, I don’t ship any of the senshi with each other. It’s much better for them to be amazingly close friends, like sisters, than anything more. If they were anything more, to be quite honest I think it would ruin the overall messages of friendship :S
YES YES YES EXACTLY. Of course I have no qualms (hehe…..qualms) with anyone who wants to ship senshixsenshi, but I just have never seen it with the exception of that one short story with Rei and Minako. Even then, I just thought that they were asserting their independence rather than “coming out.” Plus, the fact that their friendship is SO CLOSE, I just think that is something to praise. I feel like nowadays, people don’t respect close relationships and think it’s weird or that you’re attracted to someone. I think the theme of friendship is a powerful standpoint on it’s own.
Even with Usagi and Mamoru, I like their relationship a lot more in the anime because it shows they can be good friends rather than lovey-dovey all the time. Romance isn’t the BASIS for the show; love is, and that can be familial love, friendship love and romantic love. That’s what makes the show so special. <3 :)
Thanks Abby! I needed something to talk about today. haha
