I must say, as much as I enjoyed the episode, it gave me many deja vus.
Forex, it sometimes got as whacky as the Doom tree arc; which I enjoyed too, if only for that...:D

TSUKINO RESIDENCE
Chibi-Usa: "BUT YOU PROMISED!"
Mom: "We're so very sorry, dear."
Dad: "Really we are."
Yeah, I always loved the family background of Usagi. It explains her weirdness even without mystic rebirth stories et all...:)
Usagi /big sister mode: ON.
At last.
Yeah, always shouting and bickering get´s annoying...
Chibi-Usa: "…I dunno. I bet you're just using me as an excuse to see him."
No wayyyyyyy....
Chibi-Usa: "No bantering! I need a favor! Please."
Mamoru /?
Sure, for Chibiusa he does it...
Petz /is eating strawberry cake.
Calaveras: "That'll go straight to your hips, darlin'."
That was my thought exactely ! I guess I watch too much Shojou animes...
Petz: "Calaveras, vhy are hyu placing lemon on hyour face?"
Calaveras: "Authentic 20th-century skin care technique! Ah'm goin' native. Why don' you give it a go, Petz? A little freshenin', and you'll knock the boys dead!"
Pah, all just primitive human superstitions !
Calaveras /frantically hides the lemons in her mouth and looks innocent.
Rubeus: "…"
Calaveras: "…"
Calaveras /sour! sour! *PTUI!* Ack!
Rubeus /facepalm.
See ? Whacky funny villains. :)
Petz: "I VOLUNTEER! I VOLUNTEER!" /rushes out.
Calaveras: "Bleeeehhhh. Ick. Cheater! Wait for the order!" /rushes after.
OK, this is definitely a reminder of the last episode...
Rubeus: "…Maybe this was not such a good plan after all."
Yeah, see, the Generals were working directly, and they even made it work. Those were some good evil Generals. I know I repeat myself, but what can I do? I confess, I am an Terran Kingdom sympathisant at heart...can you blame me ? :D

MIZUNO RESIDENCE

Cue Swedish Chef music.
Yay, whacky senshi private time, nearly as whacky funny as the villains...:)

THAT EVENING
Walking to the store. Mamoru holding Chibi-Usa's hand, Usagi reading the shopping list on her hand, Luna walking behind.
D'Awwwwwh...
Luna: "…Kiss already, you fools!"
Shalalala, don`t be shy...
again old Disney canon, ne...?
AND NOW, TONIGHT'S EVIL SCHEME
Petz and Calaveras are doing a food demo in a grocery store. The product? Well… the sign says "Mysterious Dark Fruit," and the fruits on display certainly are both those things. As to the ladies themselves?
They are wearing stupid hats. They have a booth babe. Neither will admit whose idea any of this was.
Hey, for ruining a supermarket, it`s the perfect scheme...
Random Shopper #1: "Me?"
Petz: "Are hyu feeling anxious about your life? For an unhappy person like hyu, BLACK is PERFECT. Have some of these mysterious dark fruits with me, and we can both be… unhappy."
Random Shopper #1 /avoids eye contact and hurries on.
Calaveras: "Petz, honey, you're just not cut out for this line o' work, are you?"
As I keep repeating myself, none of those sisters seems trained in subtle behaviour...
Petz: "Vell, if hyu wish to try—"
Calaveras /squee! :) "KONNICHIWA JUBAN SUPERMARKET! Let me introduce you to our mystery fruit. It is our A-NUMBER ONE special today! The color is a trendy, trendy black, and it is absolutely DELICIOUS. Today, we're offering this at half-price! SUPER CHANCE! Try a taste with me, neh? neh?"
Booth Babe /starts working the crowd.
Petz: "…I admit it. That vas good."
They look like some marketing department turned into a covert ops department...
Petz: "I suppose that is how hyu manipulate men, also."
Calaveras: "Wrong!"
Petz /?
Calaveras: "A woman don't need to manipulate men, if she looks half as good as me."
Petz: "…you vill be hurt some day. Und I vill laugh."
...with extra bickering.
All the shoppers turn into zombies.[/i]

Shopper #1: "Uhhhhh."
Shopper #2: "Unnnnnnnnnnnnnhhhhhhhhh."
Shopper #3: "Bargaaaaaiiiiiiinnnnnnns."
Booth Babe: "Miladies? I think we're ready now!"
Calaveras: "You just sayin' that because—"
Petz: "I vill never! You say—"
Bicker, bicker, bicker.
Booth Babe: "Miladies? …Oh, well."
Booth Babe: "Okay, all you zombies! Touch everything in the store, now! Rub your hands all over, real gross now, 'kay?"
I have to admit, this plan seems like actually working. Maybe because the rottening is not only coordinated, it really does show actual, visible results of...corruption...
or, as they
said it:
Destroy All !
Chibi-Usa: "Did he dump you, too?"
Mamoru /!
Perceptive little darling, as Usagi put it...
<< Avocado Girl throws Peeled Lichee Bomb! >>
Luna: "Oh no! Not a Peeled Lichee Bomb, deadliest of all exploding fruits!"
Not even SJ could revoke another nickname, for the dreadly Peeled Lichee Bomb !
(Why lichees ? I have no idea...)
Usagi: "See, I told you we think alike!"
As you laid it into one of the enemies mouths a while ago:
"I see you know each other "
:p
Furious Avocado Tuxedo Battle! Excellent Compliant Monkey Rod vs. Banana Knife!
Yeeepieh ! I love it when they go melee !
:cool:
"It's like looking in a mirror."
"I know, right?" :D
See ? As I told.
Thefact that their landing ship is filled with those, makes it only punnier...
SUDDENLY!
The other three Sailor Senshi burst in, dramatically! Petz and Calaveras are surrounded.
Hey, cool, it seems like they remembered to use the Gizmophones. That or the other 3 just used to walk by, which could also have happened...
DENOUEMENT: MAMORU'S PLACE
Usagi: "Okay! Here we go! Curry Rice, Tsukino-Style!"
Usagi spends about an hour making a total disaster of the kitchen. Finally, out of the cloud of smoke—
...while this seems to be an deja-vu of the very first (?) episode !
Mamoru: "Did you have to use every utensil in the kitchen?"
Chibi-Usa: "Is this curry rice? It doesn't look like curry rice."
Mamoru: "Now, now, Usagi tried very hard to learn how, and I'm sure it'll be perfectly… edible."
Looks like the writers were even noticing, and playing along with it.
Usagi: "Of course it will! Everyone, dig in!"
...and so did Shadowjack, it seems...:)
Mamoru /om nom nom
Chibi-Usa /om nom nom
Mamoru /!
Chibi-Usa /!
Mamoru: "…This is pretty good, Usagi!"
Chibi-Usa /casual. "…It's edible."
Usagi /pumps fist. "Yes! So are we on for tomorrow?"
But yet, with lovely character devellopment:
Usagi learnet to cook !

Usagi: "Ami, let me run this theory past you: The bad guys are space communists."
Ami /considers. Finally: "Plausible."
Usagi: "They're attacking places of business, right?"
Hm, that one here indeed made me considering myself.
Let us see what we have now so far:
Ice cream stall, Beauty shop, Charm crystals/cheap chewellery (typo'ed for additional alliterations), the dojo, which by the time of attacking, was a commercial place (a fitness room/training ring), and now the super market...

But did I see the crystal points correctly, there were actually 10 of them, one per point of the pentagramm, and one per point of the inner pentagon...?

Rubeus's map only shows 4 blinking points in the center, making it 9.

On the other hand, he never points to which Crystal Point he's targeting each time, which makes it difficult to make up how the city is laid out. (From what I've seen, the fans didn't have much luck mapping out the star-map to current Tokyo's).

The kitchen scene was my favourite one of this episode. Delicious chaos!

Also, the "bargaiiiins" zombie had me laugh out loud.

I'd point out Ami producing a pile of books in response to being asked about curry as another silly characterisation thing, but I found it actually fairly endearing. I also tend to read an unwholesome amount of guides and tutorials before I try something.

"Serenity Jr., what the heck happened in your bedroom? Were there monkeys? Some terrifying space monkeys maybe got lose?"


"I would appreciate it if one person in this kingdom would not assume I'm an evil, lecherous hump."
"No one's saying that, sir."
"Yeah, we're pretty much just giving each other significant glances and laughing incessantly."



"Are you in pain?"
"Absolutely. I got stabbed, you know. Right here."
"I saw."
"Don't care much for fancy parties. Too rough."
"It wasn't entirely a disaster."
"I got stabbed! Right here!"

Yeah, she was pretty clearly helping, there. "Okay, here's the recipe for… wow, that's a lot of spices. Are you sure you have time to make it from scratch, Usagi?"

Re: Sailor Moon R Episode #66: Usagi's Parental Love? A Curry Triangle Relationship.

Next episode : Oh yeah, THAT episode. I actually quite like it, despite the diabetes-inducing plot and things like Makoto's sudden boat permit. There are certainly worse episodes than that in R.
*looks it up*

Ah, yes. R's equivalent of the haunted house episode.

You, sir, never fail to crack me up completely.
