Sailor Moon S TV Vol. #3

The Review!
Its official the spore is finally on DVD. If this is a good thing or a bad thing I will let you decide.

I first watched all 6 episodes in Japanese with English subtitles. I found no problem with the subtitles or the sound quality. I watched two episodes (the second and the last one) and the voices were not as good as the Japanese ones. Most of the cast is OK (especially Rini's new voice it just yells out "hug me") but I think Serena's let the main cast down. I just don't like her voice. I didn't really like the voice of the tea server who Rini fell for (who changed gender).

The packaging is very errr... PINK. I had to reverse it to the mature Haruka and Michiru side as what 17-year-old boy has a bright pink disc on his shelf? The back has a basic outline of what happens on the disc. The insert is also pink with Sailor Jupiter.

The menu is also Chibi-usa orientated like the front and the top of the disc. It is very easy to find your way around. The menus are animated with little time needed for loading like the previous two volumes. The extras are a little rundown on Chibi-usa (I never knew Luna-p was made by the future Sailor Mercury) and the original opening (but shouldn't this be on the episodes).

CONTENT spoilers by the bucket load.
The disc starts with a summer festival episode. Rei is one of the organisers and gets a famous drum player to play the drums at the festival. She becomes the first target of Eugeal a member of witches 5 who are working for Doctor Tomoes deathbusters. The mad doctor has a new way of making Daimons. He makes them in this machine that looks like an oven. The Daimon nearly has Sailor's Moon and Mars defeated but Chibi-moon shows up and distracts the Daimon with her pink sugar heart attack. It does not quite work the way it was meant to and Sailor Moon defeats it. In episode 2 Chibiusa goes around looking for friends and ends up falling in love twice. But the Professor's next target is the boy who performs the tea ceremony. Episode 3 Makoto goes up into the mountains because after losing badly to a Daimon and that makes her feel weak. The fourth episode shows us how Haruka and Michiru first met and how they became Sailor senshi. Episode 5 and Chibiusa starts going to an art class and develops a crush with a boy in her class. The only problem is he has fallen for Michiru. The last episode features Mamoru and the girls are invited to a party where English exchange students are having a formal party. These episodes are great to watch. Recommended.
