Sailor Moon Episode #63: Women Should Be Strong and Beautiful! Rei's New Killer Move.

A DAY AT THE SHRINE
Gramps: "I haven't seen any girls coming here lately. I wonder why?" :(
Yuichiro: "Don't ask me, sir."
Rei /throws a magazine on the ground before him. "Page 20."
Gramps /?
Gramps /opens up the magazine.
Gramps: "'Top 6 places to avoid in Azabu-Juban'?! 'Number 1: The Hikawa Shrine—'"
Rei: "—'because of the dirty old man who runs it!' With pictures. ¡Congratulations, Papi! ¡National exposure! ¡You're in the running for most famous lech in all Japan! ¡And I hope you're proud of yourself!"
Yuichiro: "…Congratulations, sir!"
Gramps: "…"
Gramps: "Today, I retire."
Rei and Yuichiro: "WHAT?!"
Gramps: "Rei, you are now in charge of the shrine."
Rei: "¡Wait, wait, wait! ¡I haven't received qualification as a shinshoku yet!"
Gramps: "As of today, I must find myself a new profession…"
Rei: "…As high priestess, I must inform you that if you become a pimp, I am kicking you out."



TSUKINO RESIDENCE
Luna: "Wow, Usagi's really studying har— she's asleep again, isn't she?"
Usagi /jerks awake. "No, I'm not!"
Usagi /eyes focus.
Usagi: "Chibi-Usa, why do you have your hands down my dress?"
Chibi-Usa: "…I'm looking for the Silver Crystal."
Usagi: "I DON'T HAVE IT!"
Chibi-Usa: "…tickle attack!"
Usagi: "AAAAAA!" /manages to reverse and get Chibi-Usa in a headlock.
Chibi-Usa: "If you spank me, I'll explode again!"
Usagi: "Not if I restrain you with an alpha-level fractal seclusion spell."
Chibi-Usa: "A what?!"
Usagi: "Also known as noogies." /noogie noogie
Chibi-Usa /flails arms and legs. "AAAH! Mercy! Oh, I wish I was your size!"
Usagi: "If you were my size, I'd fight dirty."
Luna: "…Didn't you say you had something planned today?"
Usagi /drops Chibi-Usa. "Oh, yeah! Rei hired me."
Luna: "What?"



THE SHRINE
All members of the team are kitted out as miko, and helping out at the gift shop.

Rei /finishing touches on Usagi. "There you go, a perfect shrine maiden."
Usagi /admires Rei's work. "Now this is a cool uniform. Why can't ours be like this?"
Chibi-Usa: "Because you'd trip and fall because you're a dumb mean dummy."
Usagi: "I'll grant her the tripping."
Makoto: "Now that Gramps is gone, business is booming. Wow!"
Usagi: "Well, when five such lovely ladies are here, it's only natural that a crowd gathers. How you doing, Fraulein Mizuno?"
Ami: "I am earning money while practicing math."
Minako /shakes head and smiles.
Ami: "…This is a concept that honestly had never occurred to me. Are there other jobs like this? I am earning money while studying, at the same time."
Minako: "Maybe you should tutor!"
Rei: "And, yes, before you ask, everyone, you are getting paid for this. I'm not taking unfair advantage, here."
Makoto: "Speaking of taking advantage, what did your grandfather come up with as his new career?"
Rei: "…sigh. It's… sigh."



AN OUT-BUILDING OF THE SHRINE
Usagi /reads sign. "'Protect Esthe'? …Like, 'est?' Those training seminar things from the 1980s?"
Rei: "Almost but completely not like that. Though I wouldn't put it past him to try to sponge off the name."
Usagi: "Is it a cult, or what?"
Rei /quotes the brochure. "'Protect Esthe is a new sport activity combining self-defense moves and calisthenics.'"
Usagi: "Okay, so like Tae Bo. Marketed to busty young women, of course?"
Rei: "Of course. I wouldn't mind if he'd set up a proper dojo in something traditional—I mean, he helped train me—but to set up this McDojo—"
Gramps /flings the door open. "It is NOT!"
Rei: "Grandfather, this is simply embarrassing… and to drag poor Yuichiro into—"
Yuichiro, in training leotard: "Yes?"
Rei: "…"
Usagi: "…"
Rei: "…I lost my train of thought."
Usagi: "Nice arms, 'Chiro!"
Yuichiro: "Thanks! I've been working out a lot."
Rei: "That is not relevent to the conversation at hand."
Gramps: "Rei, you wouldn't try to take away this old man's sole source of pleasure in this life?"
Rei: "Yes. Yes, I would. Don't come crying to me when you get nailed with a harassment suit." /storms off.
Gramps: "I won't! Say, Usagi, wanna join, and learn the thrill of honest exercise?"
Usagi /runs
Chibi-Usa: "…How much do lessons cost?"
Usagi /comes back to rescue Chibi-Usa, then runs some more



MEANWHILE, AT THE DARK OMEN
?????? the red: "…Rubeus, have y'all seen Koan?"
Rubeus, the redhead: "She's already on her next operation. We've located another Crystal Point, it's part of some old shrine—"
?????? the red: "Why is Koan getting all these here assignments? It ain't fair."
?????? the green: "Yeah!"
Berthier, the blue: "Yeah!"
Rubeus /leans around the others to look hard at Berthier: "You really want another go? This soon?"
Berthier: "…"
Rubeus: "Come on, guys, Koan was just so excited, I didn't have the heart to say no. You'll get the next one, promise."



OUTSIDE THE SHRINE
Gramps is leafletting, to recruit for his new 'dojo.'

Several hours later.

Gramps: "…well, all that, and I got one person to take a leaflet… which they threw away after reading it… and I got ordered to move along by a policewoman. People are so distrusting these days."
Chibi-Usa: "I'll sign up! I'll sign up!"
Gramps: "…you're not exactly the target audience, honey, but at this point I'll take anyone just to justify the project."
Chibi-Usa: "Will I become stronger than Usagi?"
Gramps: "You'll become as strong as we can make you!"

Enter Yuichiro, excited, in a suit.

Gramps /dives for cover.
Yuichiro /?
Gramps: "Sorry, dressed like that, I thought you were this guy from Public Security again."
Yuichiro: "Er, anyway—look! Recruits!"
Yuichiro dramatically reveals scores of young women, excitedly chattering about this new exercise program and the hunky young coach.
Gramps /faints



BUT THAT NIGHT
Koan phases through the roof of the dojo, and applies DARK POWER to the exercise mat. WHOOSH! WHAM!

Koan /exulted. "Tomowwow will be something to look forwahd to!"



TOMORROW
Usagi: "Good morning, Rei-chan!"
Rei /busy doing clean-up. "It's one o'clock. GOOD AFTERNOON."
Usagi: "…Bite my head off, why don't you?"
Luna: "What happened?"
Rei: "¡Yuichiro helped Grandfather recruit about a million girls for that stupid McDojo of his!"
Usagi: "…Oho! Someone's jealous."
Rei: "¡I AM NOT! It's a perversion of—"
Gramps and Yuichiro walk by in exercise leotards.
Rei: "…"
Usagi: "…My, Yuichiro fills that out nicely, doesn't he?"
Rei /is not looking. "He does not."
Yuichiro: "Aww." :(
Usagi: "Come on, let's check it out."
Rei: "I don't want to—"
Usagi: "—oh, come on, come on! If it's half as crazy as you make it sound, it'll be good for a laugh, and you need one. Come on!"



WELCOME STUDENTS
Gramps: "Good afternoon, students!"
Hordes of Ladies: "Good afternoon, master!" :)
Gramps /has died and gone to heaven.
Koan, wearing leotard and cat ears /perky. "Good day, sir! With this many students, you'll need some female instwuctors, won't you? I happen to be an expert in—" /leeeeeeans over "—physical instwuction, and my associate Dumble—say hewwo, Dumble—"
Dumble, seven-foot tall redheaded lady wrestler: "Ugh."
Koan: "—is quite expewienced in handling young women. Won't you hire us? I can pwovide some excelwent wefewences."
Gramps /drools as he looks at her talent. "I'm sure you can!"
Koan /snaps fingers. "Dumble!"
Dumble: "Grunt." /picks one of the students. "You."
Sweet Little Thing: "Me? Uh—"
Dumble: "Growl." /grabs Sweet Little Thing and begins to thrash her in the training ring. Over and over.

Meanwhile, watching from outside:
Usagi: "…holy shit. That woman's built like a bulldozer and about as friendly."
Rei /!
Usagi /?
Rei: "I SENSE EVIL."
Usagi: "Really? Wh—?"
Chibi-Usa /materializes, in exercise outfit. "Hello!"
Usagi: "…"
Usagi: "Too easy."
Usagi: "Uh, Chibi-Usa, I don't know if you really want to get involved in this."
Chibi-Usa: "Of course I do!" /opens door.
Chibi-Usa /watches the first victim getting thrashed for about thirty seconds.
Chibi-Usa: "…Never mind!"
Usagi: "Are you sure? Hey, I know, how about you go in and give it a try, just to see?" /push push
Chibi-Usa: "No! I'm good!" /squirms free and bolts.

Back inside:
Gramps: "Uh… I'm not sure this is exactly in keeping with the kindly spirit of 'Protect Esthe.'"
Koan /tenderly violates his personal space. "But Master, surewy—"
Yuichiro: "Don't call him Shirley! And I'm Assistant Coach around here!"
Sweet Young Thang /from under Dumble's foot. "Yes, please! HELP!"
Koan /does something with her hand, and whispews sweet nothings in sugah-daddy's ear.
Gramps /!
Gramps: "…"

To his credit, Gramps holds out for several minutes, until…
Gramps: "You're hired!"
Koan: "Yes!"
Yuichiro: "No!"
Rei /storms in, string of Spanish expletives. "¡Grandfather! ¿HAVE YOU NO SENSE OF DECENCY?"
Usagi /in tow. "Yeah!"
Gramps: "…Decency is overrated!"
All the students stare.



OKAY, LET'S COOL THINGS DOWN
Tea and sympathy in the break room.
Minako: "Heard you had a big fight with him, Rei."
Rei /angrily making tea.
Makoto: "I don't blame you. He mistreated your beloved Yuichiro."
Rei: "HE IS NOT MY BELOVED YUICHIRO."
Makoto: "Sorry!"
Rei /clatters tea tray. "My romantic issues, whatever they may be, are not the problem here."
Ami: "The harder the problem, the more it's worth solving."
Rei: "If this is another speech about math I will slug you."
Ami: "Hear me out! Hear me out! Look, see this math problem in this book here? That look me three hours to solve, because I was going about it all wrong. What I finally had to do was break it down to what the actual problem was—to figure out which piece of it what the real issue. The rest was just confusing the issue. You're angry, obviously, but you need to work out specifically why. Then you can start to fix things."
Rei: "…"
Usagi: "…Ami, I'm going to take back some of the things I've said about you." /hands her a sweet bun. "Go ahead, you've… you've earned it."
Ami: "Heh." :) /om nom nom
Usagi: "Anyway, that coach was kind of weird, don't you think? She shows up out of nowhere with that Amazon, and—"
Rei: "¡WHATEVER HAPPENS TO HIM, I'M NOT RESPONSIBLE! ¡I WARNED HIM!" /sloshes hot water over herself.
Rei /!
Rei: "¡AY! ¡AY! ¡OW! …damn it."
Minako /helps her mop up. "This isn't like you, Rei."
Rei: "¡No, it's not! …sigh."
Rei /thinks.
Rei: "I guess what it gets down to is that his endless lechery is deeply offensive to me, and it's all the worse because other than that I love and respect him dearly. And now, instead of taking this public shaming as a sign to stop, he's cranked it up and is now doing it openly. And shoved all responsibility off onto me so he can pursue his selfish little games."
Usagi: "There's a saying that we like a person for their virtues, and love them for their faults."
Rei: "But they're still faults."
Usagi: "True."
Rei: "And also I'm a little worried he might be going senile, and I don't know how I'd cope with that. He's pretty old, you know."
Usagi /pat on shoulder. "Whatever happens, you'll make an awesome high priestess some day."
Rei: "Woop-de-fucking-hoo. …Thanks."
Rei /suddenly. "…Did anyone else sense that?"
Usagi: "Sense what?"



OVER AT THE DOJO
Things have spiralled completely out of control. Koan's enchantment of the ring has caused all the women to be as violent as the Dumble Droid. A chorus of suplexes, body slams, and headlocks makes the room vibrate with dark energy.

Gramps /utterly dismayed. "Okay, really, miss, your kink is not okay."
Koan: "They don't seem to mind. Oh, girls?"
The women rise up in a mob and attack Gramps.
Gramps /Seven-Fold Swallow Defense.
Gramps /Puissance of the Tiger.
Gramps /Rushing River Technique.
The women collapse unconscious.
Koan /?
Gramps: "…What? You didn't think I knew what I was doing? Of course I do! This 'Protect Esthe' thing is just for fun."
Koan: "Well, this isn't. Dumble! I choose you!"
Dumble /HULKS OUT

Several minutes of kung fu fighting ensues. Gramps gets worked.

< Gramps is hit! >
<< Dumble uses Elbow Drop! >>
< Gramps is—
Rei /daring last-moment SAVE!
< Rei is hit! >
CRUNCH!
Rei /¡!
Rei: "…I think she broke my leg."
Gramps: "Rei, what are you doing? I can handle thi—"
Dumble /picks Gramps up and slams him into the ground. Twice.
Gramps /dazed. "…Stop the room, I want to get off…"
Dumble /throws Gramps into a post.
Rei /interposes.
Gramps: "Rei! No!"
Rei: "¡You're the only grandpa I have!"
<< Rei : Tech > Fire-Forged Fist : Dumble >>
Gramps: "No, Rei! That technique won't—"
< Dumble goes flying! >
< …but Dumbles bounce! >
< Dumble counterattacks! >
Rei: "Frell."
Gramps: "See?"
<< Rei : Tech > Double Sacrifice Defense : All Friends >>
Gramps /!
<< Dumble uses Cannon Kick! >>
< Rei is hit! >
< Rei is hit! >
< Rei is hit! >
Gramps /manly tears. "Such heroic sacrifice!"
Rei: "…owie…"
Gramps: "Move out and use your kicks, girl! You've got the speed advantage—use it!"
Koan: "Too wate! Dumble: Finish Him!"
<< Dumble uses Double Lariat! >>
< Gramps is down! >
<< Rei : Tech > Snapping Turtle Stance : Self >>
Rei: "…"
Koan: "Awl too easy."
<< Dumble and Koan use Dual-Technique: Dark Power Flip! >>
Usagi /just steps in. "Rei, aren't you done ha-WHOA!"

CUE: GONNA FLY NOW (THE ROCKY THEME)
Sailor Mars bursts from the building, dramatically.

Koan and Usagi freeze in mid-brawl and stare at her.
Rei /eyes aflame. "¡VENGEANCE SHALL BE MINE!"
Usagi /puts down the birdhouse and steps aside. "All yours, Mars!"
Koan /sneers. "Bwing it on!"

<< Rei : Cast > Fire2 : Koan >>
<< Koan casts Dark Fire! >>
The two streams of fire meet in the middle and contest. Both women sweat and strain. Rei's fire begins to be forced back—
Usagi: "Rei's losing! I'd better—"
Mamoru: "—better duck safely into hard cover over here." /gently guides her.
Rei: "If you thought Mercury could get mad…"
Usagi /?
Mamoru: "GET DOWN!"
Rei: "¡O, ARES, GOD OF STRIFE—hear me now! Help me burn this wretch's pride to ashes."
<< Rei : Cast : BurnMandala : Koan >>
Millions of rings of fire swirl out and overwhelm Koan's flames with a searing bullet hell that explodes into fireworks.
Usagi: "Ooooo!"
Mamoru: "Aaaaah!"
< Koan is hit! >
< …her dress is also on fire! >
Koan /!
Koan /panics and teleports out.
{Koan has left the scene.}
Rei: "¡Huh! Wimp."
< Rei has levelled up! New technique opened… >



AFTERMATH
Usagi: "That hit awfully close to home, didn't it? That's twice now we've set your shrine on fire. Maybe they're onto us."
Rei /sighs and extinguishes the flames with a wave of her hand.
Rei: "I cannot believe that Papi's stupid McDojo was considered worth attacking by these people."
Usagi: "Hey, maybe I should sign up!"
Mamoru: "Do whatever you want. It's none of my business."
Usagi: "Methinks thou dost protest too much, Tux."
Mamoru: "Sorry."
{Mamoru has left the scene.}
Usagi /stamps foot in frustration.
Rei /comes up from behind, gentle hands on Usagi's shoulders. "Twice is coincidence, three times is enemy action—I think it's obvious he still cares."
Usagi: "Then why is he running away? Do I come on too strong?"
Rei /absent-mindedly starts a backrub. "It's part of your charm."
Usagi: "So that's a 'yes.''"
Rei: "…You are really tense, here."
Usagi: "Well, this whole thing has got me— Hey, wait, did I ask for a backrub?"
Rei /stops and saunters off. "You looked like you needed one."
Usagi: "…Was I complaining? Hey, don't stop!"
Rei: "I gotta see to Gramps." :)
Usagi: "Sheeeeesh. Can I get a rain check?" :D
Rei: "Sorry, I don't do rain." ;)



DENOUEMENT: SOME DAYS LATER
Usagi: "So, you scrapped the McDojo?"
Gramps: "Yep! We're doing JAZZERCISE now!"
Chibi-Usa: "Yay!"
Yuichiro: "Okay, people, work it! Work it! Feel the burn!"
Rei /facepalm.

hm,
"Wie geht es Ihnen?" - "Wo ist die Jugendherberrge?" strikes me like a pun I know from somewhere, I just cannot say from where. Possible ? A-Team maybe ? I recall they flew to Germany once...
BTW, is it coincidence that Ami wears the same hat in Gargoylewings video link than in your strip, or did you do that on purpose...?
:)

Ah, well, Shadowjack, the episode in itself was maybe not that bad, I must say...
Although I wished Mercury was in there, so we could have an "Ice-cream Koan" joke, but well...:)
OTO: I loved that episode, because it contains the awesomest 7 seconds of Gramps appearance in the series !

BTW, is it coincidence that Ami wears the same hat in Gargoylewings video link than in your strip, or did you do that on purpose...?
Oh, good question !
Isn´t it ?
A DAY AT THE SHRINE
Gramps: "I haven't seen any girls coming here lately. I wonder why?"
Yuichiro: "Don't ask me, sir."
Yuichiro is still here ! Yay! And Rei seems to acknowledge his existence, so hope is still here.
Gramps: "'Top 6 places to avoid in Azabu-Juban'?! 'Number 1: The Hikawa Shrine—'"
Rei: "—'because of the dirty old man who runs it!' With pictures. ¡Congratulations, Papi! ¡National exposure! ¡You're in the running for most famous lech in all Japan! ¡And I hope you're proud of yourself!"
It had to happen once...
Gramps: "Today, I retire."
Rei and Yuichiro: "WHAT?!"
Gramps: "Rei, you are now in charge of the shrine."
Rei: "¡Wait, wait, wait! ¡I haven't received qualification as a shinshoku yet!"
Now that´´s a surprise !
(I wonder if that keeps, tho...)
Oh, and without that, Rei is not yet "high priestess", is she ?
Chibi-Usa: "…I'm looking for the Silver Crystal."
Usagi: "I DON'T HAVE IT!"
Chibi-Usa: "…tickle attack!"
Persistent little bug, isn´´t she ?
Usagi: "How you doing, Fraulein Mizuno?"
Erm, will you stay with this now ?:confused:
Ami: "I am earning money while practicing math."
Oh dear, here it is again...
Yuichiro, in training leotard: "Yes?"
Rei: "…"
Usagi: "…"
Rei: "…I lost my train of thought."
Yoruichi still is as athletic than back in the Kunzite arc.
?????? the red: "…Rubeus, have y'all seen Koan?"
Rubeus, the redhead: "She's already on her next operation. We've located another Crystal Point, it's part of some old shrine—"
Hm, looks like my "theory" is in fact a memory of how it really was. Needs one more proof though.
Yuichiro: "Er, anyway—look! Recruits!"
Yuichiro dramatically reveals scores of young women, excitedly chattering about this new exercise program and the hunky young coach.
Yeah, Yoruiche really got it.:)
(Hey, athletic, rich and religious...he must be something for veryone.)
Koan, wearing leotard and cat ears
Hm, subtlety really is not their strengh...
Rei: "I SENSE EVIL."
Usagi: "Really? Wh—?"
Chibi-Usa /materializes, in exercise outfit. "Hello!"
Usagi: "…"
Usagi: "Too easy."
LOL !
Makoto: "I don't blame you. He mistreated your beloved Yuichiro."
Rei: "HE IS NOT MY BELOVED YUICHIRO."
Makoto: "Sorry!"
Rei /clatters tea tray. "My romantic issues, whatever they may be, are not the problem here."
Well, Rei, tell yourself that long enough and we will believe you. You can take that one sunday out of the memory, but you can never get the....memory...ot...whatever...
Ami: "The harder the problem, the more it's worth solving."
Rei: "If this is another speech about math I will slug you."
Ami: "Hear me out! Hear me out! Look, see this math problem in this book here? That look me three hours to solve, because I was going about it all wrong. What I finally had to do was break it down to what the actual problem was—to figure out which piece of it what the real issue. The rest was just confusing the issue. You're angry, obviously, but you need to work out specifically why. Then you can start to fix things."
Rei: "…"
You changed that to keep the cram school characterization a bit smaller, didn't you ?
OVER AT THE DOJO
Things have spiralled completely out of control. Koan's enchantment of the ring has caused all the women to be as violent as the Dumble Droid. A chorus of suplexes, body slams, and headlocks makes the room vibrate with dark energy.
Some moves looked actually dangerously illegal, too !:eek:
The women rise up in a mob and attack Gramps.
Gramps /Seven-Fold Swallow Defense.
Gramps /Puissance of the Tiger.
Gramps /Rushing River Technique.
The women collapse unconscious.
And...here we go-ho...
Of course Gramps knows all those Charms, as he is still a bit a devil inside. A Grandpa devil, but still...
Dumble /HULKS OUT
Literally...
Rei: "¡You're the only grandpa I have!"
:eek:
He sometimes seems like the only family Rei has...
<< Rei : Tech > Fire-Forged Fist : Dumble >>
Gramps: "No, Rei! That technique won't—"
< Dumble goes flying! >
< …but Dumbles bounce! >
< Dumble counterattacks! >
Rei: "Frell."
Gramps: "See?"
<< Rei : Tech > Double Sacrifice Defense : All Friends >>
Gramps /!
Doumble really is a machine; and Rei semms to have gone more on the "Priestess"-part than the "Kung-Fu-Master part...
<< Dumble and Koan use Dual-Technique: Dark Power Flip! >>
(I hoped more for a Slam, but ok...)
SUDDENLY!
Enter Sailor Moon, dramatically, armed with +5 Holy Lunar Scepter.
Hey, only because she uses not her tiara anymore, does never mean she forgot how to use that trick.:D
SUDDENLY!
Enter Tuxedo Mask, dramatically, armed with +3 blessed throwing roses.
Koan: "Now what?!"
Tux, otoh, still has always one more throwing trick up his sleeve.:cool:
(parry with distant attacks is, tho, funnily, a Lunar charm...)
<< Mamoru : Tech > Flying Kick : Dumble >>
< Dumble is knocked over! >
Mamoru: "All yours."
Plus, Mamoru still has the Warrior tricks in his inventory (plus the Connection powers, too, granted).

CUE: GONNA FLY NOW (THE ROCKY THEME)
Sailor Mars bursts from the building, dramatically.
YEAH!
Transformation this time, to the, again playing, "Sailor Senshi Assemble!-tune !
:cool:
Koan and Usagi freeze in mid-brawl and stare at her.
Rei /eyes aflame. "¡VENGEANCE SHALL BE MINE!"
Usagi /puts down the birdhouse and steps aside. "All yours, Mars!"
Koan /sneers. "Bwing it on
!"
As if we gave up that episode so easily...;)
<< Rei : Cast : BurnMandala : Koan >>
Millions of rings of fire swirl out and overwhelm Koan's flames with a searing bullet hell that explodes into fireworks.
Power up: the rings literally cut through the fire blast of Koan !
< Koan is hit! >
< …her dress is also on fire! >
Koan /!
Although I am happy they never (and I mean: NEVER) get/got rid of the burning jokes following Rei's attacks.:D

So, the episode was actually not strife to watch.
And I like that you now went over and reduced the lines in the transformation counter (I still call dibbs on Mamoru), by giving it with "plusses".

BTW, Shadowjack: Remember the City Hunter/Sailor Moon AMV back in this thread ? The "Spoilery attack" we warned you from performed by Rei in the background was, of course, the Fire rings of the Burning Mandala; but you surely realized that already by yourself...

>*Claps hand*That should do it.<

Re: o_O

Speaking of Black Lagoon and voice actors, I think Shadowjack should give a listen to Roberta's and let us know what you think ;)
At that point in the video, I was expecting her voice shift. But chirpy Revy-chan!, who then shifts in mid-sentence to the Goddamn Two-Hands, then back. That slew me.
And the voice actress is? :)

I think we've got a misunderstanding going on here, or I totally blew the question.

To summarize, I asked Shadowjack a question about Roberta. Shadowjack commented about Roberta (I thought), then commented about Revy. I asked who the voice actress was, meaning Roberta's voice actress. And Ashikaider looked up the actress for Revy.

So let's try it again. Shadowjack, can you tell who the voice actress for Roberta is by listening? (and it's cheating to look it up, everybody)

In some traditions, one dresses up a little when one goes travelling, e.g. businesswear, or uniform.

Or the animators just didn't think of it.

Or decided against it for reasons of iconic imagery.
I'll tell you something else the animators didn't think of. Or the western rights-holders were just anal.

This was the episode where, in the dub shown on US TV, Amy's wearing a seat belt (complete with shoulder strap) when riding in the car. In the original version she is not.

yeah. I think the dub rights holders were just anal.

God when the live action introduced that attack I ranted about its name for weeks. I mean what did she do look up random english words?
I also swear what the voice actress actually says is Shin/ing/ Aqua Illusion, which would not only be grammatically correct but was also the US version.
