It's Christmas vacation and time for the shuttle to launch into space. Unfortunately, an unnatural ice storm has struck the city and it's up to our heroines to find the cause. That's if they weren't trying to find Luna. Ah, love... Even Luna has caught the bug and has become the smitten kitten when she is saved by a kind astronomer. Fallen in love with a man? Poor Artemis...
What a sweet movie! >>> by firesenshi
Based on the original manga story and the myth of Kaguya-hime, I was expecting something more. It was sweet, I tell you, how all the drama about love was carried out! In this movie, it was in the form you never expected. The story is about Luna, Usagi's cat. Not Usagi. Ridiculous? Hardly. Like all stories of unrequited love, this one doesn't fail to thug at a few of our (hidden) emotions. The new character here, Kakeru, has a dilemna worthy of a (Japanese) soap opera. The events that happen in Luna and Kakeru here will make you understand why they feel a certain way. It is very touching. And for once, the mushiness isn't dominated by Usagi and Mamoru! That's always a plus!
The entrance and motive of the villain, though grand in scale (as in world domination anyone?), isn't as deep as that of Fiore in BSSM R movie. A grand villain needs a grand attack, ne? Here is where the sailor senshi appear as simple accessories to the main character. If you want to see a lighted human merry-go-round, go see this movie. That's all the sailor senshi did. There are a gazillion BSSM fans who want to see their main character perform differently in the movie. This is not it. But at least you get to see a good bonus with the star of this movie.
