Yah, evidence is evident...We catch the barest glimpse of the central temple, filled with light, where about the city's center crystal point stand four women, clad in white and colors, hands clasped. From their combined efforts pours elemental power.
We recognize the four immediately, of course.[/i]
And grows more...Rubeus: "Interesting. Their uniforms resemble those of these 'Sailor Scouts' who oppose us in this world…"
I remember. Nice that you do, too, Shadowjack...Luna: "If you'll recall, you possess a similar power. Remember when you were still learning the ropes?"
Usagi: "…Oh, yeah. The sonic scream crybaby attack. I'd almost forgotten. Hm. I suppose there's got to be a better way to handle a magically-empowered girl than shouting at her."
Using those thingies is difficult at best...Pink bolt, starshine, swirling smokes… and a portal appears. Chibi-Usa begins to be drawn upward, into the portal—
Chibi-Usa: "I did it!"
—which flickers and fades out.
Chibi-Usa /stands up. "WHAT? WHY? Why didn't it work?!" /starts to cry for real.
Ah, Chibiusa besting 2 dabbling sisters, Luna fighting (again), and, yes, 2 dabbling Phantom Sisters.Berthier /appears on the stairs below Chibi-Usa. "Aw, did somezing sad happen, little rabbit? Quel dommage!"
Koan /appears on the stairs above Chibi-Usa. "Berthier, I found the Wabbit first! I should have the honow!"
I am sorry, weren´t you talking about another cat...?Koan: "Cat? That's a master-wevel judoka shapeshifted into the fowm of a cat, I'm sure of it. How's the spine?"
She could ! She really could...Minako: "If you like, I could act chirpy enough for two!" /LOL
Puu is wise...Chibi-Usa: "Puu, I'm not strong, I'm scared!"
Puu: "Be brave. You have powerful allies."
Usagi /assumes a guard position before Chibi-Usa. "Where're the rest of the Otaku Girls?"
Koan: "That's PHANTOM SISTERS. And I do bewieve that—"
Aaaand...even more exposure.Calaveras: "From Planet 10—"
Berthier: "—La Luna Noire—"
Koan: "—the Bwack Moon Cwan's finest!"
All together now: "The Four Phantom Sisters!"
Petz: "In the name of the Dark Moon, ve vill punish hyu."
Now we have arrived...• CRANK UP THE MUSIC
Enter the Sailors, dramatically. Time for the slow-motion "The Right Stuff" Power Walk.
Oh hell yeah !Rei: "Sailor Mars, priestess of fire!"
Ami: "Sailor Mercury, mistress of waters!"
Makoto: "Sailor Jupiter, who calls the lightning!"
Minako: "Sailor Venus, knight commander of love!"
Usagi: "And Sailor Moon."
See, this is the part which I wished would have been brought into epic lenghs. Would have been better than an episode with cute dinosaurs...Koan conjures brilliant freezing flame and hurls it forward in a wash of blue. Mars makes all the welding fuel canisters burst, and directs the swirling flames into the cold wave, warming it and sending the fire right back at her.
Berthier and Mercury stand apart, a torus of water suspended between them, as each condenses water from the air and feeds it into the pattern. Neither surrenders an inch.
Venus and Calaveras leap up, down, and over the construction stacks, whip vs. chain. So swift and accurate is their combat, not a single brick is disturbed, but the crackle of their weapons fills the air like a drumbeat.
Petz hurls upon Jupiter lightning bolts of all-absorbing darkness, but Jupiter moves as fast as lightning, and simply steps aside. Disdaining magical attacks, she comes on, fists cocked, but Petz, smiling, remains ever just beyond her reach.
And now you knowRubeus: "Our mission is to change the future course of this city. Sorry, lady, but the kid's gotta die."
As said...and blot out that history !
Which strenghens the theory that Halation is less cleansing, and mostly "cutting"...<< Usagi : Cast > Halation : Rubeus >>
< Rubeus is hit! Rubeus is seriously hurt! >
It gets closer...Chibi-Usa /sobs and hugs Usagi. "PLEASE SAVE MY MOM! Puu said Sailor Moon and her sailor warriors could help me! Please save my Mommy! Please!"
Usagi "—but I suppose questions can wait a moment, kiddo." /hugs back.
Glass towers and domes in curved and twisted shapes glimmer above a smooth reflective plain (glass or water?), that is itself divided by elevated roadways. But this great city is nonetheless dwarfed by mesas of ice that stand in back of it, and high above the stars shine coldly
At last they stopped going around that for episodes, ansd made it outright clear finally...And he glares at the image of Chibi-Usa's mother, held imprisoned, asleep?, in a magical stasis: An elegant woman in the prime of life. She wears a dress of purest white, folded to evoke angelic wings, and also a mithril crown. Her fair is long, blonde, and tied in odango twintails… a hairstyle more than familiar, for her face is also the spitting image of Usagi.
DUN DUN DUN!
See, Jhiday, someone who agrees with me...It's a great episode. It would be greater with more budget. But I like having a giant brawl, even if it's basically inconclusive.
Spheres of raw purple hate, perhaps?The episode also underlined the symetry between the senshi and the sisters. Mars and Koan use fire, Mercury and Bertier water, Jupiter/Petz lightning, and Venus/Calaveras whips. It only breaks down at the leadership level, where we have Usagi using death rays made of love, while Rubeus uses explody spheres. Well, at least they are pinkish. Maybe he's more of an equivalent for Tuxedo Mask?
