Sailor Moon Crystal – Act 8: Minako

That was a long break… it has been a few months since I last wrote about Sailor Moon Crystal. Traveling, work and stuff got in the way of actually watching the episodes, so I just left them accumulate a bit. On my way from SP to LIS, I was finally able to catch a couple of episodes, so here we go again!

Sailor V is in the house… too bad everyone thinks she’s the Princess… I mean, really people?! I know she looks like Serenity, but it’s pretty obvious throughout this episode that’s she’s hiding something… big.

Minako feels like protecting the Princess is her responsibility, so she withholds the truth from Usagi, which doesn’t go really well.

This episode is heavy on Sailor Venus, but it has some pretty nice Usagi/Mamoru moments, such as when they agree to exchange the tokens they have from one another, or when she kisses him in the middle of battle… or, my sad favorite, when he jumps in front of her to save her from Kunzite… oh Endymion…

I’m really digging their relationship in this anime, although I will admit that it felt somehow more “real” in the original one, because of all the bickering that lead to it.
