Silver Moon Crystal Power Kiss!

My favorite caps of Mako-chan thus far <33

A comparison between the end of the transformation poses in the Moon Pride music video (left) and in the actual series (right).

In my personal opinion, I think the Moon Pride ones look better (especially in Jupiter’s case). However, I do like the roses at the end of Moon’s transformation, and I love how they added in Phobos and Deimos to Mars’. The screencaps on the left are probably what we can expect to see in the DVD release!

Here are the Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter cards from my Sailor Moon card deck! There are only 3 of each (Minako got 8, however). The artwork is so pretty! The cards themselves are sort of damaged and dirty (due to their age), but I tried my best to clean them up.

Also, here are Minako’s cards!

Oh, COME ON. I keep getting sidetracked by all of these fucking amazing Mako scenes! How am I ever going to finish the episode when it’s packed with Mako being the best?

Okay, so first of all, Mako’s reflexes are KILLER. She was just startled by Usagi sneaking up behind her and commenting on her cute bento, but, when the baseball started rocketing towards them, she had enough time to react and catch it before it nailed Usagi in the face (and can I just say how incredibly painful it is to be hit with a baseball, especially one that’s just been batted? Once I got hit in the leg and the marks from the baseball’s stitches stayed for like two days even when the skin bruised. I can’t imagine being hit in the face with one). 

Then, when the guys apologize and ask for the baseball back, Mako angrily throws it as hard as she can (so hard it sails way past the baseball field) while yelling what seems to be her signature line (given the amount of times she’s already said it), “Be more careful!” She knows that it was an accident so she doesn’t confront them (if they had purposely thrown or hit the ball at Usagi, there would be hell to pay) but she’s still really pissed at their carelessness; they could have seriously injured someone. 

BUT THEN, the real kicker is that she didn’t even know that it was Usagi. Mako didn’t have the time to process Usagi’s face before the ball incident so she’s surprised. That’s right; Mako didn’t protect Usagi because she was Usagi, she protected her because she was a person in trouble. From what we’ve seen, it seems like Mako has an almost instinctual need to protect those in danger. When she saved Usagi from being run over in street or when she caught the ball, they didn’t seem like totally conscious decisions; they seemed like reflexes. Someone’s in trouble, so Mako helps them. It’s that simple.

Of course, Sailor Jupiter is later known as “The Soldier of Courage/Caring/Protection,” and it really shows here. Crystal’s writing is truly excellent so far!

OKAY I REALLY, REALLY LOVE THIS

Our first glimpses of Mako emphasize two things: Her femininity (the cute rose-patterned umbrella and the pretty rose-shaped earrings) and her sense of courage and justice. The second she sees Usagi, an innocent girl, in danger, she rushes in to protect her despite the very real possibility of getting hit by the car. And, after she saves Usagi, she doesn’t stick around; she’s not after praise or rewards, she just does the right thing and then leaves.

MAKO-CHAN YOU’RE ALREADY SO PERFECT 

I don’t think you realize this but

MOTHERFUCKING MAKOTO "I’LL KICK YOUR ASS THEN BAKE A CAKE" KINO IS DEBUTING IN 8 HOURS

PREPARE FOR THE STORM

I bought yet another furoku (Nakayoshi promotional goodies) set, this time a notebook. It was filled with these doodles (along with others, which I’ll post later), which where never reprinted anywhere else (to my knowledge). I’ve never seen these posted online before so I figured I’d share them with the world!

They’re watermarked because the furoku set was bought, scanned, and edited by me. Please let me know if you want the original scans to edit! You can also see more of my exclusive furoku scans here.
