Well, as the screencaps that Blazing Bat posted show, so did the actual animators. So don't feel too bad!
They mostly struggle with the hair around the neck though, which sometimes varies in length from scene to scene, especially in Season 4 where she wears her hair a bit longer.

And while on topic of art style differences through different seasons, I (completely arbitrarily) consider season 3 Ami the 'real' one. Her hair is very close to season 1, but the art style is of a bit higher quality in general.

Sailor Moon R Episode #55: Is Seijuro the Moonlight Knight? Mako Falls in Love.

CUE THEME FROM "LAWRENCE OF ARABIA"
Moonlight Knight, the camelback photo sessions.



MEANWHILE, IN REALITY
Ami /waving hand before Makoto's face. "Makoto? Makoto?"
Mako: "…huh? What? Oh! Sorry."

It's morning, they're at the school, hangin' in the quad before the start of classes.

Ami: "You were drooling and mumbling something about the Moonlight Knight."
Mako: "…The way he says 'adieu' is just like the way he always spoke to me."
Ami: "The upperclassman who broke your heart used to say 'adieu' and disappear, dramatically, with swirl of cape?"
Mako: "Okay, he REMINDS me of—"

Umino and Naru pass by. Umino made lunch for Naru.
Naru: "Again? But you always make the same thing, and too much."
Umino: "I do different side dishes! And there's no such thing as too much for you."
Naru /blushing, irritated. "STOP it!"

Ami: "…He made lunch for her? I always kind of suspected she was wearing the trousers in that relationship…"
Mako: "…man, I haven't done that in a long time."
Ami: "Worn trousers?"
Mako: "Made lunch for someone."
Ami: "Rei, last week."
Mako: "A special someone."
Ami: "Oh. Right."
Mako /sniff :(
Ami: "No one ever makes lunch for me."
Mako /sniff :(
Ami /Subject-Changing Prana. "…landsakes, when is Usagi going to get here? We were supposed to discuss the Moonlight Knight situation."
Mako: "…You expected Usagi to arrive someplace on time?"
Ami: "Touché."



TSUKINO RESIDENCE
Usagi: "LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATE!"
Luna: "You forgot your lunch!" /tries to drag it, but it weighs as much as she does.



THAT LUNCHBREAK, AT SCHOOL
Ms. Haruna: "You were late, you didn't have your homework, and you fell asleep in class. What have you got to say for yourself?"
Usagi: "I am made of fail." :(
Ms. Haruna: "I wouldn't go that far, dear. Go ahead and go to lunch."
Usagi: "…I forgot my lunch, too." /watches couples go by carrying shared lunches. "…I am so jealous of them."
Ms. Haruna /also watches. "…Me too."
Usagi: "You forgot your lunch, too? Wanna go halves? I can pay you back next Monday."
Ms. Haruna: "What? No. What are you talking about?"
Usagi: "Oh, you meant the couples? But I thought you were dating Na—"
Ms. Haruna: "All right, missy, get out of here! Go! Go! Shoo!"

Usagi: "I can't keep sponging off of others… but damn it, I'm starving. Hey! There's Naru and Umino. Looks like Umino made a big—"
Naru and Umino are in the middle of one of those irritating new couple games. "Open wide!" "No no no!" "Just one little bite for woogums?" etc.
Usagi: "…right. Well. If only that took my appetite away. I'd better leave them alone. I know! Mako always brings plenty! Oh, and we were gonna plot, with Ami. Where is she?"



AT THE OTHER END OF THE QUAD
Ali, as 'Seijuro', is playing flute for a very appreciative audience. And also Makoto and Ami.
Mako: "He's really very good. It may all be variations on the same tune, but I could just lose myself in that melody."
Ami: "So does Seijuro play music just like him, too?"
Mako: "No…"
Ami: "Heh."
Mako: "…but he loved music."
Ami: "GAAAAAAAAAHHHHH."
Ami: "Say… I just realized… Seijuro showed up at about the same time that the Moonlight Knight did."
Mako: "…That's right. Whoa. No way."
Ami: "There may be a correlation…"

The music ends.
Appreciative Audience: "Seijuro, you're so cool!" "Yay, Seijuro!" "Seijuro, eat my lunch!" "No, eat my lunch!" "I have something better than lunch!" "Please!" "O-Seijuro-sama!"
Ali /starts to speak.
Appreciative Audience /holds breath.
Ali: "I'm sorry, but I never eat… lunch."
Appreciative Audience: "We don't care!" "Please, pick me!" "No, me!"
Ali /exit, pursued by Appreciative Audience.
Mako /gazes after him, enraptured by fantasies of shared meals and secrets.
Ami /realizes she's unleashed a monster.
Mako: "Ami!"
Ami: "Sigh. Yes?"
Mako: "Leave the investigation to me! I'll find out whether or not he's the Moonlight Knight!" /strides off to war.
Ami: "Hoo-boy. Watch out, Mr. Seijuro Ginga."



AFTER A BRIEF LIGHT CYCLE CHASE SCENE
Ali finally uses his ninja powers to escape the Appreciative Audience, by jumping onto the roof. Makoto witnesses this.

Mako: "No way! Maybe he really IS the Moonlight Knight. What should I do? Subtlety isn't my schtick…"

Up on the rooftop, Ali pauses…
Ali, still as 'Seijuro': "They are truly beyond my comprehension. What is so important about this 'lunch' business?"
Mako /ran up a dozen flights of stairs. "It's because…"
Mako /pant gasp.
Ali: "Yes?"
Mako /gasp pant. Holds up hand.
Ali: "Take your time."
Mako /pant gasp pant deep breath let it out.
Mako: "…it's because they like you!"
Ali: "Okay? And you are?"



SCHOOL COMPUTER LAB
Ami really should not be eating in the computer lab, but she has an arrangement with the lab T.A.
Ami /eats sandwiches with one hand and types with the other.
Ami /hacks into the student database, and adds the info on 'Seijuro Ginga' to her own observations.
Ami: "Right, let's see… Seijuro Ginga, Male, Canadian exchange student, Date of Birth unknown, estimated 1978-1979, younger sister Natsumi, mother Audrey, father John, contact info just a phone number, that's a hotel up on the Heights, huh, no medical file here, transferred near the beginning of the Spring Quarter, Moonlight Knight appeared that same week, excellent grades, best in science, poorest in liberal arts, plays music, quiet personality, and append analysis of physical appearance.
Ami: "Let's run the numbers…"
Computer: "0.2% probability of personality match."
Ami: "Well, that's a fairly definite 'no.'"
Usagi /staggers in. "Ammiiiiiiiiiii…"
Ami: "Usagi! What's wrong?!"
Usagi: "Do you have any sammiches left?"
Ami: "…No."
Usagi: "…Do you have any sandwiches left?"
Ami: "No."
Usagi /faints from lack of food.



MEANWHILE, ON THE ROOFTOP
Ali /analyzes Makoto's lunch. "This looks like a sea creature of this planet, but the quality of the material is different. Is there any reason why they're made to look like this?"
Mako: "Um, Seijuro, you wouldn't happen to like white roses, would you? And, to, uh, dress in Arabian costume and maybe fight crime sometimes?"
Ali /takes a bite.
Mako /watches closely.
Ali /chews slowly.
Mako /watches closely.
Ali /swallows.
Mako /watches closely.
Ali /doesn't die.
Mako: "Do you, um, like it?"
Ali: "…Let me try another one?"
Mako: "Yes! Of course!" :D

Speaking of facial expressions, here's En, as 'Natsumi', watching from the doorway:


Mako /nostalgic. "I used to bring him lunch on days like this. He used to tell me how good it was… and then he dumped me."
Ali /talking with mouth full. "So, you're trying to recapture the magic by repeating past events, but with other people?"
Mako: "What? No! Of course not! Hahahaha… heh. Um."
Ali: "Maybe I don't understand this 'lunch' concept."
Mako: "If we, you know, like like someone, we try to express our feelings by doing something for them. Sometimes we even try things we can't do well. Sometimes, we even feel we could die for that person."
Ali: "That's insane."
En, as 'Natsumi': "BROTHER DEAR."
Mako: "That's your sister, right?"
En: "Stop putting unknown objects inside your body!"
Mako: "EXCUSE me! I happen to be an excellent cook! I use only quality ingredients. It's perfectly safe! Uh, unless he has an allergy, or something."
En: "Leave my… brother alone!"
Mako: "A sister shouldn't be jealous of her brother!"
En: "Says you! I will CUT you!"
Ali: "…say… uh… what's an allergy? I'm feeling kind of strange, here."
Mako /takes the knife away. "Seventh-graders shouldn't play with knives."
Ali: "Really, really strange."
En: "DIEEEEEEEE—"
Ali /barf



END OF THE SCHOOL DAY
Ms. Haruna: "You were late, you didn't have your homework, and you fell asleep in class twice. What have you got to say for yourself?"
Usagi: "I am made of double-fail." :(
Ms. Haruna: "All right, just go home, get some rest. We'll try again tomorrow."

Ami /waited for Usagi after school. "How do you feel, girl?"
Usagi: "I'm so hungry I can't feel anything."
Ami: "Someone came to see you."
Luna /looking like something the cat dragged in, and dragging behind her Usagi's lunch.
Usagi: "Luna! You brought my lunch! But what happ—?"
Luna: "DON'T EVEN ASK."
Usagi: "…"
Luna /bathtime.
Usagi /bows. "…Thank you. Thank you. Thank you."
Luna: "Mm."
Usagi /tears into her lunch.



MEANWHILE
Ali: "This is just a misunderstanding—"
En: "HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW?! And what happened to the other one?! Are you running around on the pigtailed bitch TOO?! And I can't believe you were so, so, fucking, besotted to try to eat human food!"
Ali: "Well, I figured the biochemistry wasn't that incompatible. I was wrong, but—"
En: "It's not that! You've DEFILED our beautiful world built on pure Doom Tree energy by taking nourishment from the hands of some—"
Mako /steps up. "Is this a bad time?"



Mako /?!
Ali: "Uh, I don't think I'll be walking you home tonight."
En: "OH, GO AHEAD! KNOCK YOURSELVES OUT! DON'T WORRY ABOUT ME! "
Ali: "En! I mean, Natsumi!"
En: "TAKE YOUR TIME! PICK A NICE HOTEL! BUY A FUCKING CRUISE TICKET! I DON'T CARE!"
{Natsumi has left the scene, in high dudgeon.}
Ali: "Eh heh. She can be quite a handful."



A CONVENIENTLY ISOLATED PARK AT NIGHT
Mako: "You and your sister seem to be… pretty close."
Ali: "I wonder if she's angry at me."
Mako: "…"
Ali: "What did you say?"
Mako: "I think your sister hates me."
Ali: "Of course not, she's just, um, cautious. Uh… I want to ask you something, actually."
Mako: "Ask away!"
Ali: "Uh… this whole 'lunch' and 'liking someone' thing and, uh…"
Mako: "You didn't understand a thing I said earlier?"
Ali: "No."
Mako: "What are you, from Mars or something?"
Ali /looks at sky. "…Which one's 'Mars'?"
Mako /cracks up.
Ali: "What's funny?"
En /is stalking Ali and watching them and BURNING WITH JEALOUS FURY.



BACK AT THE SCHOOL
Usagi /demolishes her lunch, like Corwin after a campaign. "Mako's on a DATE with SEIJURO?!"
Ami /from behind cover. "Well, not a date, date. She said she's trying to find out if he's the Moonlight Knight."
Usagi: "Bull! I could have told her that."
Usagi /finishes eating, dainty napkin, says grace.
Ami /peeks out from behind cover.
Usagi: "I'M OFF! To find out if they're really dating. Damn it, Seijuro said he liked me, that two-timer!"
Luna: "Wait, didn't you say he really irritated y—?"
Ami /muzzles Luna. "You go on! We'll catch up."



THE PARK
Ali: "So love and lunch are things you just… just… give to another person? With no assumed benefit? Don't you think they're just doing it for show, out of social convention?"
Mako: "What? No. Hell, no."
Ali: "Love is something you TAKE."
Mako: "…I find that kind of a sad attitude."
Ali: "…?"
Mako: "I mean, there are all sorts of ways to express love, and I'm okay with that—"

En /bursts in, dramatically, in space-elf form: "SILENCE IMPUDENT HU-MAN FEMALE!"
En /PK blasts Makoto across the park.
Ali /!
En: "You're just an ignorant human!" /stomps Makoto's lunch bag.
En /stomp stomp STOMP STOMP GRIND kick STAMP
En: "You don't deserve to talk about love!
Mako: "Y—"
Ali: "W—"
En /PK blasts Makoto and Ali across the park.

Usagi /just showing up. "WHOA!"
Ami /just showing up. "Agh! Makoto's down?!"
Usagi: "Luna! Whaddawedo?! Whaddawedo?!"
Luna: "Ami, get Makoto to cover!"
Ami: "Right!" /dashes off.
Usagi: "And me?"
Luna: "…"
Luna /very small words. "Transform. And. F—"
Usagi: "Oh. Rightrightrightrightright. The usual."

BATTLE IS JOINED!
Mako: "HOW DARE YOU DESTROY MY PRECIOUS LUNCH BOX FILLED WITH LOVE AND KINDNESS AND LIGHT AND JOY?!"
En: "What shit is this? Shut up and die."
Usagi /bursts in, dramatically. "FREEZE!"
En: "Crap! Sailor Moon."
Usagi: "I AM THE— Oh, good, you recognize me. I can't forgive anyone who ruins the date of a girl in love, er, without a very good reason! You annoying PEST! I shall punish you!"

Moonlight Knight: "The moonlight still shines on those who wander after losing their love."
Mako /stares at the Moonlight Knight.
Mako /stares at Seijuro— Hey, where'd he go?
Mako /stares at the Moonlight Knight.
Mako /what is this i don't even
Moonlight Knight: "Love that you give at the risk of your life: that is true love. It is something that is filled with courage and shines brilliantly."
Mako: "Love and courage. Hey! That's me!"

Moonlight Knight: "One day, you shall know who I am. Adieu!"
Mako: "…"
Ami: "Say, did anyone else notice that Seijuro disappeared at about the same time as—?"
Mako /dancing around. "The Moonlight Knight knows what Love is all about!"
Rei /man what
Mako: "Seijuro can't be the Moonlight Knight. Someone else is the Moonlight Knight!"
Usagi: "I could have told you that."
Mako: "He's just like the boy who broke my heart!"
Everyone /dies
Luna: "I need a drink. Anyone want to join me?"
Mako: "And next time I'll bring him my lunch! And we'll eat it in the tree! And I'll do Arabian cuisine, ooh, yes! And I'll wrap it up special! And he'll give me a—"
Ami: "Yeah. I'm in."

Ali /is getting lucky tonight
En: "But…"
Ali: "Hm?"
En: "…what am I supposed to do with it?" :confused:
Ali: "…I honestly have no idea."
En: "…Am I supposed to… eat, it?"
Ali: "I don't think so. You wouldn't have it to keep, then." /realizes he never did ask Makoto about that part.
En: "But it'll rot."
Ali: "Not if we put it in stasis."
En: "Brilliant as always!"

Re: Sailor Moon R Episode #55: Is Seijuro the Moonlight Knight? Mako Falls in Love.

Ah yes, this is one of my favourite episodes of this arc. So many funny moments.

Ami /realizes she's unleashed a monster.
No, really? :p

I thought this also deserved mentioning:


Ami really should not be eating in the computer lab, but she has an arrangement with the lab T.A.
Ami /eats sandwiches with one hand and types with the other.
Ami /hacks into the student database, and adds the info on 'Seijuro Ginga' to her own
Ah, yes I wondered why she wasn't using her own computer.

Speaking of facial expressions, here's En, as 'Natsumi', watching from the doorway:
This episode is so great for facial expressions.

En: "Stop putting unknown objects inside your body!"
En is good at the angry thing.

Re: Sailor Moon R Episode #55: Is Seijuro the Moonlight Knight? Mako Falls in Love.

Ah, yes, this one. A fun episode, and one of the few that actually uses the fact that Ali & En attend (most of) our heroines' junior high school.
(Up to now, most of their "civilian" interactions happened because En randomly met Mamoru in a street, and started stalking him thereafter.)

Ms. Haruna: "You were late, you didn't have your homework, and you fell asleep in class. What have you got to say for yourself?"
Usagi: "I am made of fail." :(
Ms. Haruna: "I wouldn't go that far, dear. Go ahead and go to lunch."
I love this scene.

Usagi: "Oh, you meant the couples? But I thought you were dating Na—"
I think they were too different for it to last. Ms. Haruna is clearly exploring other options, at the very least.

Ami: "Don't mind me! I'm only saving someone's life over here! I don't need a transformation sequence! It's okay! Really!"
Sometimes I wonder whether the writers are always giving Ami the short shrift on purpose...

PICK A CARD! ANY CARD!
Utonberino! A black-and-white jongleur armed with baton, red fright wig, and arm cannon.
The Monster of the week is voiced by Chiyoko Kawashima, whose main roles on the show are... Nelson Shingo Tsukino... and Ms. Haruna Sakurada ! Someone is working through her issues on her students...


Anyway, there's no way I can't like an episode that plays so well on the Ali/Ens culture shock. Tons of hilarious slapstick, too.

Next episode : a meme is born.

Yeah, I really liked the culture shock here. The Dark Kingdom folks didn't understand "love"—it was so long ago or they're now so corrupted that they can't really comprehend it any more. Faerie playing at emotion. Audrey's Children, on the other hand, do—I do think they love each other—but they're from an alien culture, and they seem to be the dysfunctional remnants of that culture. (Which makes them hardly a representative sample; did their culture view love as taking possession of another person, or is that just their twisted personal take on it?). When the only other person in your culture is one other person, I imagine it becomes hard to relate to others. I like that Ali seems genuinely curious about what Makoto is talking about—so curious that he forgets to suspiciously think, "Hey, what's her angle? And won't she think I'm strange for asking all these questions? And why am I listening to a pitiful hu-man again?"

Next episode : a meme is born.
Oh boy!

Re: Sailor Moon R Episode #55: Is Seijuro the Moonlight Knight? Mako Falls in Love.

Aaaaand, we´re back at Doom Tree arc slapstick and hilarity:D !
Proof1: The scene between Ami and Mako, with her heartful shoulder patting.
Proof2: The schoolgirls following Ali Pacman-style:)
Proof3: Ami and Usagi in the fireball (to be fair, the writers will come up and love playing with Rei´s fire)...
Proof4: Ail trying to make/use/comprehend human food stuff...;)

And...did you like Makoto´s new Power Performance ?
You gave not more than a new Attack name to it, so, you didn´t...? :(
I mean...
She even went down to FULL INCANTATION MODE !
(at least *that* you expressed accordingly...;))

BTW, Ami likes sammiches. So she can read AND eat at the same time...
(Of course you still should not do it in the computer room, anyways....)

Random question (not related to the episode in question)... do we ever get to see the transformation sequence of the Sailor Scouts returning to their normal forms?
