Firesenshi's Description:
When ChibiUsa meets Peruru, she considers herself lucky for having such a friendship with a cute boy. However, when the children are being led to the song of Sanji no Yosei (Three O'Clock Fairy), the sailor senshi had to help to get them back. A group of villainous toys greet them in a land of candy and toys. They themselves have turned back into children. Is there any way they can get the children back?

NOTE: This description was written sometime in 2001 and was recorded in the classic Otaku Fridge as ??.??.2001. Unfortunately the database would not accept non-numerical values, so this review is now dated January 01, 2001 by default.

My original grade was 4 but... >>> by firesenshi
The opening sequence of the film was so cute! See the second screenshot above? Totally kawaii! Good thing about this film? Animation. The animation is at its best. But is that enough eye candy for you? Nope. If you want to see your favorite senshi besides the main characters do things differently, this is not it. Combining even the henshin (transform) sequences into one scene isn't exactly different. You've seen that before, haven't you?

The plot is as the theme of the movie -- sugary. It's all coated with nice sweet and cute stuff but it's not good for you. Introducing a new character here, Peruru, makes him a simple pawn in the storyline. I think that you if you removed him, there'd be no difference whatsoever. At least in the BSSM S movie, Kakeru has a more intimate connection with the characters of the series. The villain is nothing new. After seeing the TV series, you know how this will turn out. And if you could go as far as thinking she looks like somebody else you've seen in the series, you're not alone. The plot is very predictable. It just got sugary. And another thing why this movie is sugary -- it's too pink.

Individual Rating: Art 9; Story 3; Characters 6; Sounds 7
