I haven't ever really posted something like this before but seeing as I have seen the ep I figured why not. ^_^

As eps go I give it an eight...Minako sings! and there is more Mamoru but this time he is fully clothed...even Mio sings in this for a brief period of time.


Act 30 Spoiler summary


Mio has the class under her control and they all turn against Usagi....

At the crown Motoki is outside trying to get up the nerve to ask Mako out...he has two tickets with turtles on them[the movie is titled "Finding Turtle"]...he really has it bad for her and makes all kinds of funny faces...that scare two nearby girls...he then runs back inside just in time to make sure that he looks good for Mako's arrival....he then proceeds to act crazy around her and well she is clueless as to what he is trying to get at...flashes him her pass and walks away...poor Motoki

The girls gather to cheer up Usagi and end up being ordered by Luna to do their chopstick catch the flying paper training ...

In London Mamoru ponders whether he wants to remember or not and Zoi is there to urge him on to remembering....in the dark kingdom Kunz confronts Jade about what he is doing only to be summoned by Beryl who attempts to use the black rose to gain control of him again

Mio is doing a recording session and Minako is watching clearly not impressed...Mio interrupts her session to greet Minako and gets the cold shoulder...Mio does her hurt feeling routine and everyone is angry at Minako for being a bully.

Usagi is persona non grata with everyone accept Naru and Ami...Usagi and Ami have lunch on the roof...Naru tries to find out the truth but Mio does something to her that makes her hurt...Ah a sign that there is more to her than meets the eye.

Usagi is met by Mio after school and she suggests that Minako make an appearance in fact she'll arrange it....[NOT!] Usagi falls for it of course.

They set up for the concert all the students are excited...however Minako has yet to arrive...as the minutes tick by Usagi is getting nervous...Mio asks to borrow her cell phone and she makes it look like she calls Minako...this is part of her plan...to make Minako and Usagi look bad. The students start chanting Minako's name over and over...Usagi bites the bullet and goes up on stage to tell them that Minako is either late or not coming...Much to Mio's delight Usagi says sorry to the crowd they kids are not happy and continue to chant...suddenly there is a huge commotion in another part of the amphitheater...their are fireworks going off and there on another stage a 100 yards away or so is Minako and her band. Minako says she is sorry that she is late...starts singing "Romance" the crowd goes wild as does Usagi...who is thrilled to see Minako...

Mio however is not...as she singings the song she point to Mio...Mio summons the youma but Usagi sees it and excused herself to go take care of business. Sailor Moon chases after the youma and they clash...the youma from Act 29 [told ya it got away] uses its web attack on her...she is trapped but then her crystal activates in a really cool sequence her moonlight stick appears and proceeds to cut her free...Major power up for Moon...she is now on the offensive with the Youma and proceeds to take it out this time after super jumping up to a taller ledge and dusting it for good this time...but then you never know.

The concert over Usagi runs over and thanks Minako...she and Minako have a conversation with Mio watching...Minako says some sharp things to Mio and she does her whole tear thing again...which melts our fair princess's heart...she is such a softie. She gives Mio a second chance...Minako well doesn't seem surprised and Mio acts all happy...the cell phone rings the girls have been waiting for he to meet them somewhere and are not pleased...Usagi tells them she'll be right there...She turns to Minako and Mio and once again thanks Minako then tells them she has to meet her friends and yes Usagi is once again off an running.

Minako and Mio stand on the steps and have words...its clear the even though Mio thinks she Minako is none the wiser that Minako doesn't trust her at all...the moon closes on Mio's face and she flashes a scary smile.


the preview for at 31
Motoki's arm is in a cast or something...Motoki and Mako go on a date...

Well there ya go I am off to get a head start on the storyboards :)

Finding Turtle? A spinoff to the popular Finding Nemo? I feel sorry for Motoki because he seems scared to be Makoto, let alone a girl for a date. :|

A repeat of Act 2 (Where Usagi meets Ami on the rooftop)? Did you mean 'except' in the 1st setence?

I knew that Mio was evil! ^_^ But, did anyone see that Mio actually summon a youma or did the youma just appeared.

Lolx..

I have some questions to ask. are the revealed spoilers of Mamoru going missing and all true? I was just wondering how did the summary got into hand.

Aww man. You guys are gonna hate Mio even more today.

Mio planned to make Usagi look stupid in front of her classmates by telling them that Minako would perform. And she was over an hour late. The fans were getting annoyed so Usagi had to go up on stage and apologize. Mio laughed at Usagi. Apparently she finds it very amusing to make Usagi look bad. But then, Mio got punk'd. Minako was on this other small stage and performed. Yay.

Minako's performance was great, by the way! I'm sure Aino Minako fans will be happy! :D

And for the Shibue fans...yes...he was seen today.

Overall, a great episode. Good acting from Mio. I guess she likes to cry to get what she wants....


... So who thinks Kuroki Mio is an enemy? She made Naru weak in the knees! What was up with that?

Minako's performance was sooo cute! That song "Romance" certainly is great for this episode. Loved Minako's hand movements. :)

The only thing that seemed out of place, I'm sorry to say, was Sailor Moon's fight scene. Though there was some nice choreography and special effects, the whole youma arriving seemed unnecessary.

What exactly was Minako and Mio talking about that made Usagi suprised?
I'm having doubts that Mio is Beryl, but the way she hurt Naru seems really suspicious :)

Great episode...looking forward to Act 31, hopefully no more Mio :)

I just need that mean girl's Mio to die ASAP, cannot sssssstand herrrrrr!!! :twisted: When she was laughing at Usagi on the backstage, she was so wicked. She don't even seems to be like a human at all. I just want to get a knife and slaughter her into tiny pieces and then bury her ASAP.

Anyway, now let's move on to Motoki. Man, he is so funny in the beginning. I was laughing out of my chair when he was practicing his kissing scene in front of those two girls that were staring at him. They must had thought that he was crazy. Don't worry I think he's not, but I know he want Makoto really badly.

There are a lot of scenes that really confused me. What is the relationship to Mio and Minako? I think Minako felt an aura around Mio, then how does Mio knew about it. If not, why are they enemies then? Queen Beryl finally knows how to act like a boss here. You go lady!!! :D

Ah, no Sailor Venus in this ep. I thought this is the ep. where Usagi will finally find out who Sailor Venus really is. Maybe later on she'll find out. Minako, we are still waiting for you in the group, love ya!!!

Minako is indeed the hottie in this ep.. She have the looks and the outfit that match with her song "Romance." Love the hand movements she made with the heart signs!!!

Preview 31 totally rock. Cannot wait for it. :heart: Motoki holding Makoto's hand. :heart: Whoa, is Motoki's left hand got injured or something!!!

Overall, Act 30 is a average ep., without Mio will be a lot better. Minako you are so pretty!!! :)

This was a decent episode, but it does fall into the filler category REALLY nicely.

I'm glad Minako learned not to be so stiff during her performances, the one she did at the hospital looked like a joke.

Mio needs to have her head, yes, her HEAD shaved off with a blunt knife. I hate this chick, but i can't help but love her like random spots of evil...



Things that bothered me in this episode:

1) Usagi being so... Usagi. I'll retract this if this isn't true, but from what I got Minako basically said Mio had no intention of Minako showing up, then Mio breaks down, I longed for Minako to push her @$$ into the stream that was behind them. But nooooooooooo, Usagi believes Mio OVER Minako. (This is pure observation, I need the transcript ;-;)

2) Very slow middle... very slow for the most part actually. Act 31 looks like it will rock though, and it'll feature all 5 inners, which is sweet.

I LOVE MIO! OMG, she is the best villian EVER! She seriously sent chills up my spine when she was talking to herself like a psycho at the concert.

This episode rocked the house, assssss usual. Minako looked really hot, whereas Sailor Moon looked pretty rotten...The moment when Minako came to Usagi's rescue was sooo sweet! And when she basically told Mio that she isn't like Usagi (and isn't going to be afraid to be a bitch), I was cheering. ;_; Haha, I'm liking this new protective side to her. Damn, though, I still can't get over how GOOD Ayaka looked this time around.

Poor poor Motoki...but it looks like he and Mako get a huge episode next week. I CAN'T WAIT!! Finally a real Makoto episode! I knew it would happen.

I loved the new Dark Kingdom set! In fact, I just enjoyed the way this whole episode was filmed...it looks like they might have gotten a boost in funding? Or maybe they just got a little smarter. The fight scene was much better than usual too--Moon actually KICKING the youma (as opposed to just lifting her leg like she usually does). Also, that scene of her jumping backwards onto an upper level was wicked (even though it was probably just her jumping down in reverse, but who gives a crap).

The moonstick appearing was kinda random though...I mean, before it was like, "Yeah, she's awakening as a Senshi," "Yeah, she's awakening as the princess," or "Yeah, her power is being released because she's feeling fiercely protective of someone she loves," but this time it was..."Yeah, she has some webs around her...?" Don't waste those glowing moments, man, I don't want to get jaded.

Great last scene with Usagi naively believing Mio (who is just FABULOUS with that fake crying. I mean, god, she makes you love to hate her). It was very classic Usagi to me, which made me happy. ^^ Naru defending Usagi was also really refreshing to see, since we haven't seen much of her lately...Does anyone think she knows Usagi is Sailor Moon? She seemed to hint at it in the dialogue... At any rate, wtf happened to her? Guess we'll find out next week.

Jyoji, come home. :x

That is all. ^^

Mio reminds me of Sae from Peach Girl.
Are you referring to the same Sae who sings the theme track for PGSM?

As for this episode... Wow. That's totally not the same #1 I remember from the animé. She actually managed to start and finish a battle scenario on her own. Mio? Ha! She's definitely playin' all of those people for chumps. Just call her an "actress squared", or just plain "square", if you think about it enough.

Oh, my gosh, I think I've died and gone to fangirl heaven. Minako is so freaking cute during the concert. *dies* That was the absolute highlight for me. I also liked the two times where Minako told Mio off. Evil villain certainly deserves it.

When Mamoru is looking at Zoisite in the mirror, did anyone else get the feeling that Mamoru was going to go into the mirror to find himself? I dunno, maybe I'm just weird.

(PS, I posted up my Act 29 awards in case you're wondering.)

What an awesome episode! I loved Mio in this episode! That girl is just too fricking evil for her own good! If you haven't seen this episode yet, go get it ASAP! Or look at screenshots! This is my favourite non-plot moving episode yet!

Act 30 Awards!
This week's awards are brought to you by: CG bras; because every girl wants one.

Hottie Of the Week:


I was going to make Alisa the HOTW again, but once Ayaka came on stage, I was totally blown away. Like Nae said, Ayaka looked SO DAMN GOOD this episode! And the way she acted to Mio was just... wow, you'd never imagine Minako acting like this, but when Ayaka acts it out, it seems so believable. I've always liked PGSM!Minako, but right now, I'm LOVING PGSM!Minako. Ayaka is a Goddess, I swear.

Best Shibby Moment:


I see we're going back to the 2 minutes of airtime Shibby deal, which hey, is okay, because Ayaka's hot and she makes up for it. Mm, so which of those two delicious minutes is the best Shibby moment? That confused look he got when he saw Zoicite in his mirror, but this time, with no words; just the sound of his piano. Okay, either Zoicite needs to A) Jump out of the mirror and just JUMP him, B) Quit teasing poor Mamoru, or C) Let me know how to appear in his mirror.

Funniest Moment:


Have you ever noticed that the majority of funniest moment scenes are Motoki-based? That's because Masaya is a GENIUS. I love this man to death. There's nothing more sexier than a guy who can make you laugh! I was laughing my ARSE off when he was kissing the air and those girls were like OMGWTF, and when he went inside to fix his hair and was all like, "Welcome," being all suave and stuff. That's why I love PGSM!Motoki; he's interesting and HILARIOUS, unlike his other incarnations, who are.. well, boring and plain. I love you Masaya. You kill me, in a good Holden-esque kind of way.

Cutest Moment:


Just when Minako couldn't get any hotter, they HAD to add in the hand movements. This totally beats the finger kiss noise they make. THIS is the ultimate move of cuteness. I have to learn how to do it. God, how ADORABLE were her movements? *runs off to make icons out of them*

WTF of the Week:


Ayaka, you're hot. Your dress, is not. Although it's a nice design, the way it's really loose around the waist makes it look like you have a HUGE waist line, which you don't. It would have been a lot prettier if the waist line wasn't so huge.

Coolest Moment:


Go razor blade crescent moon wand! Yep, Sailormoon's new Moon Twighlight Flash was awesome. I'm sorry to always have the new attacks the coolest moments, but flashy lights and CG effects always lure me in. xD What can I say? I'm a sucker for them.

And to replace the Saddest Moment award, I present:

*New Award!Best Delievered Line:


Mio: "Usagi-chan, daijoubu da yo! Watashi ga iru kara! Usagi no koto DAIKIRAI na watashi ga." Didn't you just feel the shivers going up your spine? It's amazing how she switched from "Ganbatte Usagi-chan!!*^^*~~" to "I HATE Usagi. ャャ"

Over all thoughts: GOD THIS EPISODE ROCKED MY SOCKS OFF. I don't know why, I just REALLY liked this episode. Mio owns me. Mio owns you all. I love her, I loved Minako, and I loved the hand movements. That's about it. <3 Oh yes, I think the song Mio was singing was that Change of Pace song. It sounds pretty cute, actually!

Things we learned from this episode:
  • *Cute hand movements are hella cute. Do them, a lot.
    *To get what you want, just cry.
    *Ever stuck in a binding? Just hack away at it with your moonlight stick.
    *Even though a girl got everyone to hate you, embarrassed you in front of everyone, and even made your IDOL look bad, just forgive her. Or she'll cry.
    *When a crazy turtle guy asks you to watch Finding Kame, ACCEPT IT!

Can't wait until Act 31! MakoxMoto action! ^^

I agree. Minako looks much better than the past episodes. When watching the concert of Minako, I wanna tell Mio that this is what an idol looks like. For that Mio bxxxx, pls go back home!!! Minako is especially cool when she's talking with Mio and Usagi after the show. Good that Minako doesn't believe in Mio.

I just can't wait for the next episode. Sounds interesting betweem Motoki and Mako-chan.

If you hadn't written that, I'd had written that with even more CUTEs and KAWAIIIIIIs and AWESOMEEEEEs :D
Minako was so sweet this episode.
I really like her improved stage performance ^-^

Mio .. wow! I'm really enjoying her bitchy style.
But it's so creepy, isn't it?
