True, Mercury gets most of Mercury's astrological associations, from knowledge and education to medicine to water and compassion. Mars only slightly gets her associations though, Mars is a extremely male astrological symbol and Mars is pretty feminine overall. Going by their usual associations, Rei's take charge attitude and Mokoto's martial artsy masculinity would of meant switching their planets.They have other associations thought... Mercury "smarts" and Mars being war leader in anime.
IIRC, a later flashback provides a reason why they're so "Great," despite not being all that at this point.It's interesting that they never thought of awakening the Seven Great Youma before it became clear they were related to the MacGuffin. Of course, the reason why becomes obvious by the end of the episode : they're crap, barely above the level of a random Monster of the Week. The main problem for the Sailor Team was how not to kill their host, and they found a way around that quickly.
In my fanfic, I wound up decreeing that the Moon Kingdom's elemental system was based on the planets, so there were nine (well, ten, in that story) elements, one for each Senshi, that precisely matched.The associations of later Senshi, especially Uranus and Venus, can be.. confusing at times.
Well, they all are, really. It's kinda the point: divergent, equally-valid takes on what it means to be female.Mars only slightly gets her associations though, Mars is a extremely male astrological symbol and Mars is pretty feminine overall.
That's because there is no current U.S. licensor. The Japanese company pulled the license and has refused all subsequent officers. I haven't the faintest idea why, since they would stand to make quite a bit of money. But these days the only options are expensive used copies or less-than-legal ones.As an aside, I looked for this on Amazon, and was quite appalled at the price. And Netflix doesn't have it.
I am sad. (Only saw the dub when it was in syndication.)
Shadowjack said:"Dragon of the West."
Naturally, I have no idea to what you are referring!Gargoylewing said:Wait, WHAT !? First, stop interwining WIW threads, plus, Shadowjack, don´t spoiler Shadowjacks WIW thread with future hints. They could be seen as full out Spoilers !
True. True.Except I don´t think the mentionning of green suns is appropriate here. Savvy ?
Fine by me. Here's what we know so far, officially:At the end of the series, we should start making an overall image of this guy that dumped Mako in her past...I thought about it once for fun, but was too lazy...
I noticed that, and it surprises me—and gives a reason why he kept dropping in on Nephrite. He just couldn't bear to watch him sit back and plot, and he couldn't bear to just sit back and send nasty telegrams urging him to action.Kreuzritter said:Zoicite, on the other hand, doesn't dick around. he just gets right in there and does the deed with his bare hands.
Now that you point out it, yes, that's right… and it is odd.ru said:around the time this aired, a girl having an extra-long skirt was a sign of delinquency. wierd, huh?
Yup, and you can spot the others in the pile…*among with various monsters and other critters. A number of green things just reminsicent enough of the little dudes from Toy Story to make me think of that movie ("Farewell my friends! I go to a better place!") but not enough so to make me think Pixar was riffing.IIRC the prize he's picking up in the crane game is a chibi Sailor Mercury
Oh, good lord, yes.As an aside, I looked for this on Amazon, and was quite appalled at the price. And Netflix doesn't have it.
I am sad. (Only saw the dub when it was in syndication.)
Well, it was dormant before that : it took all the energy Queen Beryl fed her at the beginning of the episode to slightly awake it.Why didn´t [their great ruler] say this earlier...
Considering all the other guys that are supposed to "look just like him" (none of them looking alike), he's either a shapeshifter or a Picasso painting come to life.At the end of the series, we should start making an overall image of this guy that dumped Mako in her past...I thought about it once for fun, but was too lazy...
There's nothing inherently wrong with the adaptation introducing original plots, if it's done well. And for the first season, it IS done well : the Naru/Nephrite subplot was a lot of fun, and the Rainbow Crystals arc will be even better.Yes, but you know what ? Despite this, those Youma episodes I really liked, even if it only brings in some once-then-off-characters. But the characters were even interesting, and made up for interesting episodes, so... I ALLOW IT !
The amount of Ami/Makoto fanfics is indeed phenomenal.sorry Rei, Ami's still your freind, but she's only got eyes for mako
Indeed, and that's another thing to like about him. I wouldn't be surprised if all of my favourite villains in this series adopted these tactics.Zoicite, on the other hand, doesn't dick around. he just gets right in there and does the deed with his bare hands.
It's a visual reference back to the old sukeban all-girl gangs of the 60s. Part of the gang culture was the conceit of maintaining chastity and purity (while huffing paint thinner and going at rival gang's faces with razors), so members would wear longer, conservative skirts to project the right image. These particular gangs faded away in the seventies, but the image remains popular in Japanese culture. Now, much like t-shades or a leather jacket, it's just a quick way to say, "Hey, this character is a bad cookie."Now that you point out it, yes, that's right… and it is odd.
There's a line of dialogue confirming this theory in this episode (though I think she just got it in one of her previous schools).Although, the first time I watched Sailor Moon, I assumed that because Makoto was so tall, they just didn't have a school issue uniform in her size, so she wore a personal one.
