Reflections of a Dreaming Girl

*SPOILERS*

Watched the second ep of Sailor Moon Crystal this morning. Had to watch it on my phone as our wi-fi at home is on the fritz again. But I have Hulu on my phone, so I still watched it legally.

Anyway, this episode debuts my favorite senshi, Sailor Mercury, and as you can see from this video her henshin is gorgeous. Anime-influenced, naturally (there are no “henshin sequences” in the manga) but with the manga outfit. Also in Act 2 of the manga, we don’t actually see Ami transform, so glad they put that in. They also went with calling her first attack “Mercury Aqua Mist,” as in the 2003 reprint of the manga and in PGSM. (Her first attack is unnamed in the original manga run). Though they kept it as a defensive mist like in the manga and 90’s anime, as opposed to it being an offensive attack like in PGSM.

Speaking of PGSM, Usagi says “Chenji” (the English word “change”) when using her disguise pen, which also happened in PGSM with the camera phone transformations.

Also they kept in the element of the manga chapter where Usagi earns her disguise pen and Ami her henshin pen from the Sailor V game! I was so happy! I always liked that idea and was hoping they’d include it.

One change they did make was to have Ami also get brainwashed by the Crystal Disk. I don’t think this was in the manga but it works, as it allows for a more poignant awakening moment for Ami as Mercury.

One other change is that Usagi checks on the Crystal Disk at home. Cause in SMC Usagi suddenly has a laptop. Eh, that’s cool. Her laptop even has a bunny on it. :)

Anyway looking forward to next episode where we meet Mars! Also, the OP/ED single comes out on July 30, and I pre-ordered it, so hopefully by the time Act 3 airs, I’ll have it!

DOCTOR: You sound very happy, Jamie.
JAMIE: Oh aye, Doctor, I am now. You know I never thought I’d say this, but, well it’s great.
POLLY: What is?
JAMIE: All this. I’ll never know what makes it go, mind you, but, well, at least I feel safe in here. It’s only the wee things outside that are, well, alarming.
DOCTOR: He’s got a point there.
BEN: Yeah, you can say that again.

He doesn’t get how it works, but he knows it’s safe. Jamie McCrimmon, I love you.

Doctor: (German accent) I’m glad you’ve come, Sergeant. I was waiting for an escort. Sergeant: Who the devil do you -Doctor: Civil tongue, Sergeant! You are in charge of these men?Ffinch: No, I am. Doctor: A gentleman at last. Doktor von Wer at your service. Sergeant: Doctor who? Doctor: That’s what I said.

Pleeeeeeeease can we find this one?
I agree!
What makes this scene funnier is that “Doctor Wer” in German means “Doctor Who.”

Went to Barnes and Noble to get the DVDs of William Hartnell’s era which I had chosen to buy, but could only find the one for The Keys of Marinus. Apparently, my local B & N has narrowed down their DW selection considerably.

I also got the DVD of The Infinite Quest, an animated Ten/Martha adventure that I initially watched via Hulu and really liked.

I almost bought the Complete Series 3 (which I have been meaning to buy for a while) but it was $80(!) so I passed.
