This was a pretty good episode. It felt fillerish but that's okay.

Usagi is a fool. How can she still believe Mio? I love how she's so nice and trusting and bla bla bla, but come on! :twisted: I'm frustrated.

Mio's song sounded kind of boring. Hopefully it will be better than that. I used to think Alisa was pretty, but her hairstyle as Alisa makes her face look weird. She looked so much better in Candy.

I loved Minako in this episode. Show Mio who's boss! Those hand movements she did at the concert were so cute!!

Did anyone notice that around episode 23 Rei had a more natural makeup look? I noticed last week and again today that she has more makeup on again, and a new razored hairstyle. It looks very good.

I want it to be next Saturday! I hope Makoto doesn't break Motoki's heart!

All I gotta say is... Mio is pure evil. :grey: Shibby didn't do much, he just sat there while it rained and then lightning flashed a few times. Not very clear. I like Minako so much! She's so pretty and cute! Yes with the hand movements, lol! What exactly did Mio do with her eyes to hurt Naru?

I will temporarily stop chasing after Hama Chisaki and go for Komatsu Ayaka. This is the power that she has over me for this act! Oh my! SHe is absolutely gorgeous, and she literally took my breath away when she made her literally flashy appearance. I especially love Neeko's HOTW picture... that is EXACTLY what I liked about her during this episode... her beautiful eyes, fluid hand movements, flowing dress, amazing black tresses and oh my, the beautiful gesture she made to Mio. Pardon my ogling and gawking.

I finally saw why Mio was chosen to play her role. She may be on the ugly side, but she DELIVERS her role. She scares me whenever she plays Miss Goody-Two-Shoes. At the same time, she portrays her innocence and naivete very convincingly to Usagi.

Will dream about Ayaka tonight. Will think of kicking one's girlfriend aside.

P.S. for Neeko: Will you not add the Best Shibby Moment if he doesn't really appears for the episode? I seriously appreciate your awards and mainly stand by them, but recently, the Best Shibby Moment awards have been rather pointless, bordering on spoiling your other perceptive choices of awards.

I hate to do this, since you were so polite in your suggestion, but I gotta say, I find that quite obnoxious. Why do people let these things bother them? Why would people want someone to stop something harmless that others enjoy just because they and a few others don't like it? She does these awards for fun and does them in her own free time. What's it matter if she wants to include something on Jyoji to amuse herself?

Personally, I enjoy all of the awards and hope you keep all of them, Neeko. But I have a feeling after this, you won't. -.-;

<--will miss the award

<--stomping away

I enjoyed the change of settings and the pacing of this episode since it took place over several days and actually featured new environments. As for Mio I hate her but thats what makes her special she is there to be hated and possibly pitied in the future. The fight scene impressed me though I wish that they wouldn't have Usagi's brooch glow each time cause we know its not going to change anytime soon. Also did they forget that Usagi has the ginzuisho, I would like to see that used in some attacks from time to time. Next episode looks good, which of Makoto's attacks will be upgraded? Or will she get a new one ? I can't wait.

I forgot to add this... I found out that Ayaka cuts out a motherly sort of figure... especially in the last few scenes with Usagi and Mio. It was like she was mediating peace between them, albeit a Mio who was shedding crocodile tears.

The Motoki scene was quite funny too... it's memorable and hilarious moments like this that actually makes me remember PGSM for all its goodness.

To reply to Nae, calling me obnoxious may just defeat my tone of politeness. I am exercising extreme tact, and you just shattered it with one single word. Couldn't you have used a more polite term? And I'm not trying to dictate Neeko's actions... I'm merely making a suggestion for her to leave out the Best Shibby Moment award if there really isn't any to put down. For really memorable moments of Shibby, I will be more than happy to see it tagged with an award.

Minako's performance was great, by the way! I'm sure Aino Minako fans will be happy! :D
I am. I like that her competitive spirit is focused on an enemy this time instead of a fellow senshi. I was marking out when it seems like Minako had a "Got you beat this time" look on her face as she pointed to Mio. I look forward to a Crecent Beam flying across a Super-Powered Mio sometime soon. :)

am still in the process of downloading... saw about 50% of it

poor Usagi-chan, for a girl who always have a friend (correction: lots of friends) around, this is just too much for her. :(

looks like Beryl is mad at Kunzite for disrupting Zoisite's peeping on Shibby (and serenading him with his melodies), formerly known as 'awakening the Master plan'. Well, at least it shows that she was _not_ clueless on what her generals were doing and is actually supporting Zoisite so she can get her man (little does she know that Zoisite's gay :shocked: , just kidding 8) ).

Ooohh I just looveee how minako stood up from usagi :heart: . 'didn't you hurt your hand?'. (yes! protect me minako-sama!!!!!!!). She was just too cool. I always love how protective the senshi are towards their princess, especially Venus (and Uranus : both more evident in the manga version). from what i read here, didn't minako just basically came and saved usagi from Mio's plan? I want to be usagi!!!

i'm kinda into the venus/princess serenity pairing mood now. Minako just knew what happened in jyuban school and what Mio did to Usagi (of course, you guys can say one of the senshi told her about it but i prefer to think that Venus keeps a close eye on her princess). The manga Venus is alive!!!!

This ep was pretty interesting!

I'll start off with Mio-chan. What a dramatist... really. She still reminds me of Hexadecimal with the face change. And she does it "on the fly," though you could tell what emotion she'll put. And I'm surprised Usagi-chan didn't hear Mio while she was on the stage.

Speaking of, when the students were chanting, "Mi-na-ko!" I was at liberty to chant the whole song "We will rock you" the whole time. I only got to the second verse, but that's okay; the solo didn't really matter.

Minako-chan looked fine! I was rather surprised. This ep made her look different and ostentatious for some reason; I think it was the sparks that emitted off the trailer. I loved it when she "laid down the law" on Mio. That was priceless.

In the beginning, Motoki was holding up tickets -- I think -- and Mako-chan sort of didn't care. And then in the previews they're on a date?! I can't wait to see how Motoki pulled that one off.

The fighting scene between the youma and Moon was kinda subpar. I was expecting more than her illuminating and the moonlight stick popping out of nowhere. Then again, the simplest things can make little kids happy...

And finally, Rei-chan... baby, that look on her face (when Mako-chan was on the phone) literally paralyzed me. It was a seductress look! *thinking of watching the ep 20+ more times*

Really interesting act! And the next act, Mako-chan gets dirty (in more ways than one)!

I think we're in for a typical anime Usagi deal with this. Mio is going to turn really evil and attack everyone and Usagi will want to protect her, blah blah blah and Venus will protest, etc.

Even though it's a typical type of situation, I still like the fresh storyline. And Mio is an awesome villainness. She's completely got the whoa-I'm-psycho thing down. I'm just hard put to figure her out because Beryl and them never discuss it specifically.

Oh God, lighten up, seriously. Neeko's Awards are just that -- Neeko's. If you don't like'em, then go ahead and make your own.

But if you're still insistent on making that critique, you really have to find a different tone other than the one you're using here; her keen, yet notably light-hearted awards do not merit such a pedantic and fastidious response. I think it's highly inappropriate in that context. "Rather pointless" and "bordering on spoiling your other perceptive choices of awards?" As John Stossel of 20/20 would say, gimme a break.

Aww, calm down, I didn't mean to say *you* were obnoxious, but that what you were asking for is obnoxious. ^^ You didn't just say, "Hey, if there's no Shibby, don't make the award"--you said that the Shibby award being there for eps where he's not featured that much seemed to spoil the rest of the awards. I still think that's a bit extreme. Sorry, next time I will use a thesaurus.

:wtf: is up with that bra commercial in the beginning?!? Like the kids watching this show in the morning are going to say, hey mom, can I have a bra like that even though I haven't gone through puberty yet? Can I?

Ok, anyways I've got to say I loved Minako in this ep! Even though her dress sucked, I loved her jewelry. I kept wanting to yank her earings off and put em on myself.

Ah, Motoki. He's my number one guy in PGSM, always. Sorry Shibby, you'll have to take 2nd place, but I always loved all the cute and adorable moments that Motoki delivers. And it's sooooo hilarious the way Makoto just brushes him off after he put all that effort to be 'cool'. :D

But my biggest biff against this ep? Uh, Mio needs to die a horrible, painful, embarassing, unforgetable, awful death. :wtf: is shoved up her @$$? That thing she did to Naru and all that evil music that played and her evil laughter and her little soliliquy offstage was just friggin annoying to me. I'm really disappointed that Usagi still thinks they're friends after all this. I was kinda hoping for Minako to say "WTF? Don't forgive that B****!" to Usagi or "Oh no you didn't! Are you trying to sabotage *my* princess?!?!" to Mio. I really wanted to kick Mio in the face when she was grovelling on the ground. *sigh* Too bad Alisa isn't really evil in reality, it would make hating Mio even more fun.

PS I totally support Neeko's awards. There may be times when I kinda disagree, but I'm just amazed at her abilities that it doesn't matter. You go girl!

Hey, someone wants to give an award, I'm all for it! I don't have to look at them, right.....???


Anyway. On to the sp.

Lots of fun. Like all of you, I love Motoki trying get Mako to go on a date. What is the event, a turtle convention?

Mio is of the Dark Kingdom - and she's deliciously e-e-e-v-i-l! Looks like Usagi's big heart might be a problem here....

Just wondering, but does anyone think we're going to see more of the "backstage" world of girl idols? I could see their record comapny (why else would Mina-chan be @ Mio's recording session?) thinking a duet would be good for both careers....

Thanks blackbird! ^^ It was hard to make a scary-looking ish banner when most of them were all angsty and glowy and.. err, happy.

CG bras; because every girl wants one.
Thanks Nae, Alisinoa, theedqueen and donnarl! *hugs for all* Oh, I'm not stopping these awards. The only thing that'll ever stop me is when PGSM is over, or... another virus inffects my computer which.. would suck. x_x

As for Lt Razak, there are only a few episode where Shibby actually has a shining moment. For about 80% of the episodes, he has what I call, a "2 minute screentime moment." Generally, a Shibby moment is always put up when Jyoji appears in the show, whether it's 1 minute, 2 minutes, or 40 seconds. (Flashbacks don't count, of course!) Why? 'Cause I just love him. Even if the thing I choose for that award isn't spectacular, or it makes the award seem pointless to you, then hey, that's great, just scroll past it and continue on, because to me they're not pointless, which is why I'll continue to post them. ^^

Like donnarl said, you don't have to look at them. You can just scroll past them! I have a right to do these awards, but you also have the right to scroll past them. The suggestion is appreciated, but I'm not gonna remove the award. ^^

Err, back on topic! I would love to see a duet between Minako and Mio. Did anyone notice that Mio was actually singing? (Or was it me and my bad skills of listening and watching?)

finished watching the entire thing. YES!! I'm still standing by my initial response. Rescue me minako-sama!! so i'm a girl who wants to be saved by another girl. yeah! :D minako is all prince-ly in this episode. didn't understand the japanese (did the girls told her about the concert?, i really do hope she knew about it herself *sigh*)

Hmm.. i'm starting to wonder about Mio being Beryl, she's suddenly not all powerful here, i would believe that Beryl knew who Minako is.All she does is squat and cry. I thought it was funny when Minako said 'chotto matte', she was like you believe that c*** she's telling you? But i think that'll be something Minako loves about usagi. Okay enough of this talking about girls. Let's move on to other things, like whether the green muffler actually has moss.
