Episode #34: A Shining Silver Crystal! The Moon Princess Appears.

• RECAP: A tense meeting by a lighthouse. On the left, four Sailors and a cat. On the right, one Sailor and a cat.
Rei /holds out hand to shake. "Thanks for the timely rescue. ¡We're pleased to meet you!"
Venus /strikes a pose and smiles.
Rei /looks at her hand to see if there's something wrong with it.
Usagi: "You wouldn't happen to also be the Moon Princess we've been looking for, would you?"
Venus /says nothing, and keeps smiling.

Beat.

Long beat.

Usagi: (sotto voce) "Does she speak?"
Ami: (sotto voce) "Maybe she's mute."
Rei: (sotto voce) "Maybe she's dumb."
Makoto: (sotto voce) "Maybe she doesn't speak Japanese? I'm trying to be charitable, here."

Venus /keeps smiling. It's getting kind of scary now.



• AND NOW, PART 2:
Venus: "Oh, heck, no! I'm just another Sailor Warrior like you all."
Makoto: "You had to think about your answer to that question?"
Usagi: "My favorite superhero! In person! This is awesome!"
Usagi /shakes hands with Venus.
Rei /shakes hands with Venus.
Ami /shakes hands with Venus.
Makoto /shakes hands with Venus.
Luna /shakes-
Artemis: "Sorry to interrupt, but we've been in the middle of an investigation. Shall we meet at your Shrine and discuss it tomorrow?"
Luna: "Uh, sounds good to me."
Artemis: "Fare you well, then."
Sailor Venus /leaps the nearest building in a single bound, and is gone!
Ami: "She can jump? We can't jump."
Makoto: "Have you tried?"
Rei: "I can jump. ¿Did she seem a bit… spacey, to any of you?"
Usagi: "SHE WAS SO COOL. I need to get her autograph."
Rei: "¡Caramba, there's two of them!"



• LENG:
Kunzite: "Your Majesty!"
Zoisite: "We were about to cream them!"
Kunzite: "Well, I wouldn't go that far."
Zoisite: "Honest we were!"
Kunzite: "That's a matter of opinion."
Queen Beryl: "Sorry, boys, orders from above."
Kunzite /?
Zoisite /?
Queen Beryl: "You know, our great ruler?"
Kunzite: "…"
Zoisite: "Isn't that you?"
Queen Beryl /points irritatedly at the giant non-Euclidian figure that surrounds and towers above the throne. "HER! The one we're trying to free!"
Kunzite: "Oh, right. He Who Drums At The Gates Of The Oceans. The Great Tentacled One. Yes, of course. Sorry, I thought we were talking about… well, never mind."
Zoisite: "…Er… he, or she? It? Gave the order? I thought they were dead?"
Kunzite: "It depends on one's point of view."
Queen Beryl: "The order was most explicit: Tuxedo Mask is to be taken alive."
Zoisite: "Well that's a bit difficult."
Queen Beryl: "Well then it's a good thing you're my best Generals then, isn't it?"
Kunzite /ushering Zoisite out of the room. "We'll get right on it, Your Majesty."



• DAWN! At Mamoru's Place.
Mamoru /bleeds in front of the bathroom mirror, tries to bandage himself as best he can, stumbles into the living room with a stiff drink, slumps onto the couch, and switches on the TV.
Zoisite: (via TV) "Hello, sailor!"
Mamoru /!
Zoisite: (via TV) "Nice place you've got. And you've been working out!"
Mamoru /pulls on a shirt. "You figured out my name and address from my face? I'm impressed."
Zoisite (via TV) /toys with a stray lock of hair. "You should be."
Zoisite (via TV) /seriously. "I challenge you to a duel, with the remaining rainbow crystals as the prize."
Mamoru: "I accept."
Zoisite: (via TV) "Good boy. Nakatomi Tower, 1700 hours by your Earth reckoning. I'll be waiting." /signs off.
Mamoru /glances out the window, and observes Nakatomi Tower, a crystalline refugee from 1970s sci-fi anime, sitting serenely by the bayshore.
Mamoru: "When did that get there?"



• THAT AFTERNOON: After school.
Usagi: "LATE! It's already spring!"
Usagi: "I mean, 4:30. My digital watch must be screwing up the subtitles again."
Usagi: "Shit, I'm gonna be so late, Rei is gonna do horrible not fun things to my fragile self-esteem."
Usagi: "Hello, is that…? Yes it is!"
Usagi /slaps Mamoru heartily upon the back. "HOWDY, JERKFACE!"
Mamoru /shrieks in pain. "GAAAAH!
Mamoru: "…As perky as ever, I see."
Usagi: "I can't help it if I'm perky 24/7/365! What's with the screaming?"
Mamoru: "Those are surprising measurements. Never change, huh?" /staggers off.
Usagi /notes the trail of blood.
Usagi /?!



• SUNSET: Mamoru is observing the tower.
Mamoru: "Hmmm. No sign of guards… but there's someone behind me!"
Mamoru /spins and karate chops!
Usagi /blocks and backpedals. "Dude, wtf?!"
Mamoru: "What the hell are you doing here?!"
Usagi: "Worrying about you. Look at this, you're bleeding all down the back of your Miami Vice jacket! How'd you get hurt like that?"
Mamoru: "I'm fine. Go home."
Usagi: "Don't pull this macho crap, get your butt to the hospital!"
Mamoru /walks off.
Usagi /follows. "Jerk! Dork! I don't know why I'm bothering."
Mamoru: "Look, following me right now would be a bad idea."
Usagi /puts her foot down, arms akimbo. "Why?"
Suddenly! They are surrounded by a force field bubble, and the light redshifts as they are accelerated toward the tower.
Mamoru: "Well, that's one reason, I expect."
Usagi /wtffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff…
{Mamoru has left the scene.}
{Usagi has left the scene.}



• CUT TO: The Shrine.
Rei: "Okay, even for the nutbunny, this is too late. Something has happened to her."
Ami: "I checked, she's not at home."
Makoto: "Nor at school. Rei, did you get any visions?"
Rei: "No."
Luna: "No response on the gizmophone, either, not even the homing signal."
Venus /dramatically. "She's at Nakatomi Tower!"
Rei: "Sorry, who are you?"
Artemis /starts to pull out the beatbox again.
Venus/Minako: "Oh, gosh, did I forget to introduce myself last night? I'm Minako Aino, but my friends call me Sailor Venus."
Minako/Venus: "…Strike that. Reverse it. Carry on."
Artemis: "We've been monitoring Nakatomi Tower ever since it went up, as a possible center of Dark Kingdom activity."
Luna: "What led you to that conclusion?"
Artemis: "It was constructed by a corporation called Ackbar L–"
Luna: "Say no more."
Minako: "I bet this 'Usagi' decided to take it on by herself without waiting for backup."

Pause.

Luna /starts giggling uncontrollably.
Rei: "Yeah, no."
Ami: "She obviously doesn't know our Usagi very well."
Makoto: "Well, she is new to the team."
Minako: "No, you're the new ones. Now, let's hurry to the Tower!"
Rei, Ami, Makoto: "Uh… okay!"
Artemis: "Tallyho!"
Ami: (sotto voce) "Does anyone else find that cat a trifle… snooty?"
Rei: (sotto voce) "Well, Luna's often a bit snooty. Maybe that's just how cats talk."
Ami: (sotto voce) "Maybe."



• CHERENKOV RADIATION SHOULD BE BLUE! So this must not be.
Shoop! Mamoru and Usagi appear on an empty floor of the tower; Zoisite is waiting.
Usagi /BARF
Zoisite: "Here are my crystals, as proof I'm in earnest." /sets them down in the middle of the room, backs off.
Mamoru: "Before we get to business, let the girl go."
Zoisite: "LESS TALK MORE CRYSTALS."
Mamoru: "All right, all right." /sets his crystals down in the middle of the room, backs off.
Zoisite: "She's right, you are a dork!"
Suddenly! Kunzite beams in and steals the crystals.
Kunzite: "These? These are mine now. Not yours."
Zoisite: "Cause trouble and we'll mertilize the girl."
Kunzite: "Handle this for me." /beams out.
Zoisite /calls after. "You know, my first name is not Kozo."
Mamoru /flings a rose at Zoisite's face.
Zoisite: "AAAAUUUGH!" /bleeds. "BASTARD!"
Zoisite: "I'll see you on the observation deck, you murderer of beauty!" /petals out.
Usagi /feels a lot better now. "Whew. Sorry, motion sickness. What was all that you were saying?"
Zoisite: (via magic voice) "And here's an appropriate parting gift for a man who kisses like a cold fish."



• SUDDENLY! Temperatures in the room dive below freezing, and the humidity level soars. Massive ice crystals grow everywhere, and the floor begins to crumble…
Mamoru /grabs Usagi and runs. "RUN!"
Usagi /grabs Mamoru and runs. "I forgot how much I HATE MY JOB!"
The floor shatters and collapses behind them—and several other floors, too. They make it into the elevator just in time. Elevator music starts.
Usagi: "Interesting architecture this building has!"
Mamoru /recoils from the alien, still-living vines that make up the elevator. "You noticed that, huh?"
Usagi /recoils from the weird orifices in the wall. "What's that?!"
Mamoru /listens. "…'The Girl from Ipanema', I think."
The elevator starts going up.
Usagi /waves out the window. "Hey, there's the Tokyo Radio Tower! GO BOY, GET HELP!"



• GROUND LEVEL:
Ami: "What's that, boy? Up high?" /pulls out the tricorder and scans.
Ami /points. "He's right; Mamoru and Usagi are trapped in that twisted parody of an elevator."
Rei: "Doors are sealed tight."
Makoto: "Door?"
< MAKOTO : TECH > THUNDERGA : DOOR >
BLAM!
Makoto: "What door?" /strolls through the smoking wreckage.
Rei: "¡She scares me!"



• TOP FLOOR:
Kunzite: "Sheesh, what a bunch of pests."
Kunzite: "They look like little ants from up here! I squash you, little ants." /pinches fingers.
Zoisite /sporting an enormous bandage. "Is that a suggestion?"
Kunzite: "Go ahead and pay them back for what he did to one of the Seven Wonders of the Dark Kingdom."



• ELEVATOR:
Usagi: "…the girl from Ipanema goes walking, and each time she passes the one she passes goes… AAAAGH!!! This elevator is taking forever!"
Mamoru /bleeds some more.
Usagi: "Hey, you. I'm going to ask a question I'm going to regret. I couldn't help but notice that: A) you're wounded the exact same way Tuxedo Mask was wounded last night; B) you were talking about rainbow crystals with Zoisite, something that I thought only the Sailor Senshi, the Dark Kingdom, and Tuxedo Mask knew about; and C) in profile you look an awful lot like Tuxedo Mask. Are you…? Oh, gawd." (sigh) "Are you Tuxedo Mask?"
Mamoru: "…Yeah."
Usagi: "Okay, dude, the crystals! What is up with that?"
Mamoru: "When I was six–"
Usagi: "Is this relevant?"
Mamoru: "Yes."
Usagi: "Proceed."
Mamoru: "When I was six, my parents—my biological parents—and I were in a car accident. Off a cliff and into a lake. They died. I lived, but with amnesia. Ever since, I have been haunted by a dream of a beautiful, blonde-haired princess with twintails, who meets me beneath a shining moon in a fairy castle and begs me to seek the MacGuffin. By finding it, I hope to find myself."
Usagi: "Well, I wish you luck, Corwin. Blonde hair with twintails, huh?"
Mamoru: "Yeah, I don't know anyone like that."
Usagi: "Brother, I am so not a pretty princess. I'm not even a plain-faced baroness."
Mamoru: "But you do seem awfully well-informed, Meatball-Head."
Usagi: "You know, Jerkface, I used to think you were the most obnoxious guy in the world. But upon careful consideration, I think I'll move you down to second place." ;)
Mamoru: "Thanks, I think." :)



• TOP FLOOR:
Kunzite /snaps fingers, and every single light in the entire Tokyo Metropolitan Area goes out. A storm coalesces about the tower, and the tower facade crumbles and falls off, revealing a misbegotten abortion of building that looks like a raw extrusion of the Dark Kingdom's realm into our reality, because it probably is.



• INSIDE: The Sailors are taking the stairs.
Rei: "¡SUCH POWER!"
Ami: "Hey, Venus, what's going on?"
Minako: "…I dunno."
Ami: "Wonderful."
Makoto: "Where are we?"
Ami: "Looks like we're in the teens, somewhere."
Makoto: "Well, let me know when we get to Twenty… 'cause I'm gonna throw up."



• TOP FLOOR: Zoisite listens to the whistling wind, and starts juggling with fireballs.
Zoisite: "FAREWELL, TUXEDO MASK!"
Flames rush down what passes for an elevator shaft.
Mamoru /stares up at the impending doom. "We're fucked."
Usagi: "Fuck that."

• MASSIVE EXPLOSION!
THWAAAAAAA-KOOM!!!! CRASH BANG BOP BING CLATTER CLATTER clatter clatter roll roll roll roll roll…

Zoisite: "'Your Majesty, I'm afraid Tuxedo Mask fell down the stairs while trying to escape. A terribly unfortunate accident.' Heh heh heh."
Usagi: "ACCIDENT MY ASS!"
Zoisite /!
Usagi /strides out of the smoke, soot-stained but very much alive. "I am the terror that trips in the night!"
Usagi /sets down Mamoru, dusts him off. "I am the building inspector who condemns the cheap tenements of Crime and Injustice!"
Usagi /points dramatically. "I AM SAILOR MOON! And if you recall, I promised to end you, Mister."
Zoisite: "Well, well. I'll have the chance to take care of you and Tuxedo Mask."
Usagi: "Uh… Tuxedo who?"
Mamoru: "Don't bother, he knows."

(The timing of this animation kills me. Everything goes on at once except—wait for it!—the… hat.)



• TADA!
Usagi: "I can't believe Jerkface and Tuxedo Mask are the same guy."
Mamoru: "Please don't distract me. Now, Zoisite, prepare yourself!"
Usagi: "I told you to get your butt to a hospital. Go exit out the window, dramatically, with swirl of cape. I'll handle him."
Mamoru: "This whole situation is my fault. This is my responsibility."
Usagi: "Nuh-uh. It's all the same fight. I'll do it."
Mamoru: "I have to protect you."
Usagi: "No, I have to protect you."
Zoisite: "I don't really care who goes first, since I intend to kill both of you."
Mamoru: "I'll duel with you if you promise to leave her out of it."
Zoisite: "Sure, yeah, fine, whatever!" /fingers crossed.
Mamoru: "En garde!"
Zoisite /summons a crystal death shard the size of a telephone pole to stab Mamoru in the back like a leaf on the wind.
Usagi /!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mamoru /spits blood, and collapses in slow-motion.
Usagi /!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mamoru: "…ow…"
Usagi /!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mamoru: "…if i'd known this was going to happen, i would have changed the carpet, like motoki said…"
Usagi /crying. "STOP TALKING YOU IDIOT!"
Mamoru / "…why are you crying…?"



• THIS IS A TERRIBLE TIME for the rest of the team to arrive.
Minako: "Oh, God, we came too late!"
Rei: "¿¡Tuxedo Mask!?"
Makoto: "And there's the bastard that did it!"
Ami: "Look at Usagi's tears! They're… they're glowing like stars."
Zoisite /?!



• QUICK CUT TO: Kunzite.
The seven rainbow crystals start glowing.
Kunzite /?!
The seven rainbow crystals shoot across time and space.



• CUT BACK TO: The battlefield.
The seven rainbow crystals merge with Usagi's first tear, causing it to solidify and glow with the inner fire of a Silmaril.

Everyone is awe-struck.

Artemis: "It's the MacGuffin!"
Luna: "Usagi is the MacGuffin?! A main character can't be the MacGuffin! I was searching for the Silver Crystal all this time and she was right there?!"

The Moon Crescent Wand and Silmaril are orbiting each other now, and merge their powers. Usagi reaches for it as if in a dream.

There she is, Princess of the Moon…

There she is, your ideal…
Artemis: "Indeed, she has finally awak–"
She'll take the town by storm…
Luna: "You didn't TELL me?! I've been running ragged trying to find her and she was right freaking there?!"
With her all-Selenian face and form…
Luna: "You son-of-a-bitch! After I help Usagi kill that Dark Kingdom bastard, you're next!"
And there she is,
Walking on air, she is
Fairest of the fair, she is
Princess of the Moon.


And Princess Usagi opens her eyes…














Rei: "…and that's when the screaming starts."

Rei: "I can jump. ¿Did she seem a bit… spacey, to any of you?"
Usagi: "SHE WAS SO COOL. I need to get her autograph."
Rei: "¡Caramba, there's two of them!"
Heh, it's true to a point. Mainly a feature of her being the protagonists of the original manga, I think, though her personality is different in a number of ways - it's just this takes a while to become evident.

Pacing wise, I think it would have been a good idea to have another episode in here to give Minako at least some time to settle in before the plot goes critical.

Artemis: "Tallyho!"
Ami: (sotto voce) "Does anyone else find that cat a trifle… snooty?"
Artemis is kind of a dick in these episodes, it has to be said.

Usagi /waves out the window. "Hey, there's the Tokyo Radio Tower! GO BOY, GET HELP!"
:D

Re: Episode #34: A Shining Silver Crystal! The Moon Princess Appears.

Ah, my favourite episode of the season.

• RECAP:
For the first time ever, we eschew the standard recaps and go for a straight repetition of what happened last episode. This is only the first step.

• AND NOW, PART 2:
Venus: "Oh, heck, no! I'm just another Sailor Warrior like you all."
And thus ends the cheapest cliffhanger ever.

The manga at least had the decency to try and string us along for a whole chapter.
On the other hand, the live-action series made a major plot point out of it, spanning at least half the show, and milking it for all it's worth.

Rei: "I can jump. ¿Did she seem a bit… spacey, to any of you?"
Minako's personality is in a bit of flux in the first season : they obviously hadn't decided yet what to do with her. Thankfully, there are solid backstory reasons explaining the drastic changes.

Spoiler: Show
I'm pretty sure Minako's ditz act only became cemented in the "Nurse Minako" episode in season 2, but I could be mistaken.


Rei: "¡Caramba, there's two of them!"
Remember : the first few chapters of the Sailor V manga were basically a pilot for Sailor Moon. So it shouldn't be a surprise if Minako had some similarities with Usagi (which is why her characterization had some growing pains in the first season, as they tried to find a distinctive role for her).

Makoto: "What door?" /strolls through the smoking wreckage.
This is one of the reasons I love Makoto. She has such a practical outlook.

Mamoru: "When I was six–"
Usagi: "Is this relevant?"
Mamoru: "Yes."
Usagi: "Proceed."
Enjoy, this was one of the only times we learn anything about Mamoru's background.

(The timing of this animation kills me. Everything goes on at once except—wait for it!—the… hat.)
Yeah, it would look so impressive if it wasn't for the clumsy hat animation. It kinda kills the moment.

Zoisite /summons a crystal death shard the size of a telephone pole to stab Mamoru in the back like a leaf on the wind.
Actually, he was aiming at Sailor Moon. Tuxedo Mask jumped in front of it.


• THIS IS A TERRIBLE TIME for the rest of the team to arrive.
Ami: Oh my god, he killed Tuxedo Mask !
Rei: You bastard !

(I had to do it.)

The seven rainbow crystals merge with Usagi's first tear, causing it to solidify and glow with the inner fire of a Silmaril.
And this is the reason why the anime was able to add the whole "rainbow crystals" miniarc without changing anything to the wider plot. Ultimately, they don't matter, as the Silver Crystal was inside Usagi all along. But it was a nice way to pass time and build tension.

For reference, most of the final scene is taken straight from the manga : Tuxedo Mask sacrifices himself to save Sailor Moon, she cries in anguish, the Silver Crystal comes out, and she's revealed as the Moon Princess (the actual context was different, obviously). The live-action series also adapted it with minor variations. After all, it's one of the key scenes of the first season, with strong emotional resonance.

Next episode : Exposition ! Backstory ! The plot finally explained !

Fun note, according to notes on the storyboards, Usagi is slightly hesitant to transform in front of Mamoru because he'd get a glimpse of her in the nude. :D

And indeed, in the middle of the transformation sequence, there is a lingering shot of Mamoru getting an eyeful...

Makoto: "What door?" /strolls through the smoking wreckage.
On a lighter note:
To S. Jupiter, she follows the rule:
"If all you have is a hammer..."
(Unless you count her two hands as hammers too. And you really should.)

BTW:
Am I the only one who is surprised about the fact that Usagi carries those important McGuffins with her all the time ?
I mean, she´s our bunny, I do know, although even to her, it should seem kind of stupid to cary the objects that can be crucial to the fate of the world at her "talent", where it easily can get stolen or lost.
I hope Mamoru only caried them with him this time. As I hope, Mamoru knows that those objects need to be hold at a safe place, like a secured room in an underground ase full of capable agents or something...

Well, but at least, now these questions are not mattering anymore. Now, let´s move on with some backstory.

Re: Episode #34: A Shining Silver Crystal! The Moon Princess Appears.

Remember : the first few chapters of the Sailor V manga were basically a pilot for Sailor Moon. So it shouldn't be a surprise if Minako had some similarities with Usagi (which is why her characterization had some growing pains in the first season, as they tried to find a distinctive role for her).
Naoko Takeuchi, when she came up with "Sailor V", modeled the lead character after herself - a girl who's a bit of a space case, with a working father, a stay-at-home mom, and a younger brother. She then gave the lead heroine a talking cat companion, and the ability to transform into a sailor-suited warrior of love and justice.

When, at the urging of her editor, she came up with Sailor Moon, she essentially recycled the main character, with a few minor changes. Normally, this wouldn't be a problem...except Takeuchi decided that Sailor V and Sailor Moon both took place in the same universe, rather than one being an early draft of the other.

As a result, she ended up with two copies of what are basically the exact same character. Since Usagi was the star of the "main" version, she got to keep all the characterization and attributes. But the show didn't need TWO Usagis, so Minako had to find her own, new characterization.

It was kind of a long and fumbling process, but she got there eventually. That's why, for the first season of the anime, poor Minako basically comes off as a cheap copy, personality-wise, of Usagi, and so seems like more of a bland nonentity than she should be.

Saying that, there's a fair amount to Usagi that isn't in the original Sailor V. Usagi's a bit brattier and a generally more comedic character.
