I 'm not ashamed to admit that I loved the BSSM series! >>> by firesenshi
Well, for one, like in the first season BSSM TV series that generated the appeal, there are no pink brats hanging around. Just a blonde one. And it's always a good idea not to exhaust the franchise just yet. Why? The plot is straightforward. No exaggeration, no too much sugary sweet stuff. It greets you right there in the beginning. You see the sailor senshi having a great time until it was interrupted by a visitor who makes him and his mission known. Ahh... no too much guessing. We know the Bishoujo Senshi series is intended to be something that we should easily understand anyway, ne?

The villain himself is not too complex. Or at least, not trying too hard to be complex like the Deathbusters in the third season or Galaxia in the last season. Yet he draws the entire conflict of the movie all to himself with ease. There's his inner conflict clearly shown in the movie. The themes of love and friendship is a recurring theme in all things Sailormoon. Expect a little drama here. It's necessary anyway. The best part? All the characters here are given enough focus in this movie. They share in the drama of love and friendship. They exemplify cooperation in the senshi teleports. They throw cool attacks! They're not just accessories to the main character! Hnn... well, they do linger in the background in the end. But that was expected since that was part of the waning concept of an overexaggerated main character.

Individual Rating: Art 8; Story 8; Characters 9; Sounds 10
