I loved both 24 and 25. But I have to say the Tuxedo unveiling in 24 had me bouncing off the walls! I guess, because I wasn't expecting the princess to show up for a few more acts and I was confused when the image of Serenity fragmented from the shot of Sailor Moon crying over Tuxedo's body. I was like, whoa!! What's going on?!?!?!

24 had more of a WOW factor to me, just because it was the first time that we got to see Mamoru's perspective on things. Previous acts like 19 and 20 were all from Usagi's perspective and it made Mamoru seem cold and harsh. But he really softened up in 24 (and even more in 25) and I thought that was very well done.

I like 24 better because it's what starts the ball rolling, with Usagi and Mamoru's car scene and Usagi finding out about Mamoru's study abroad. It just felt like things were starting come apart at the seems in 24 and so I liked it better. The pieces of the story were starting to come together and I was waaaay excited to see Usagi's reaction to seeing Mamoru as Tuxedo Kamen. Yippee!

I'm not sure I can say I like either act better... my favorite scene extends through both Act (end of ep 24 and start of p 25) But I'd say Act 24 garnered a stronger reaction, because the revealation of who Tuxedo Kamen is was very different than the anime and manga (which were also very different from each other) where as Tux ALWAYS seems to be getting impaled with things for his true love. And yess that's badly phrased but get your mind out of the gutter anyway :x

:P I slightly preferred Act 24! I thought Act 25 actually had too MANY characters, scene changes, and subplots running through it! Actually, I thought Act 25 was very WELL done considering how much they were covering in a 26 minute act! Still, I thought Act 24 grabbed me harder and kept me more focused on its events!

I'd say act 25 since 24 left me hanging for what Usagi and Mamoru would do once they learned who they were while 25 left me with the thought of the Moon Kingdom!

I liked both. They were inseparable episodes obviously. And even though Sailor Mars was shown less, I still liked both equally. They also hang on an equilibrium because Motoki is the "clown" of the play (I remember there's a Shakespearean/literature term for it but don't recall) and tries to release tensions in both of the episodes.

I can't decide. I liked Tux's unmasking better than the princess reveal (only slightly), but in terms of the whole episodes it's too close.

I think the term you are looking for is comic relief as was done in many Shakespearean plays before death scenes occured. I remembered that suddenly from 10th grade english class in 95 when reading Othello.

I just watched episode 25 last night and I have to agree, it had more oomph! That was so kick ass and Sawaii Miyu looked hella fine wearing that dress. But it was a shock for the senshi that the princess was really under their noses and their expressions of their faces was priceless. :D

Act 24 was good...but the unmasking of Tuxedo Kamen (in my opinion) was RUINED by playing Kirari! Don't get me wrong, I love the song, but...just not at such a critical moment! I preferred the emotional BGM they played at the beginning of Act 25. But 25 was definitely the better of the two, in my opinion. :D I'd been waiting to see the Princess revelation since...well, pretty much since day one! And the acting was just superb in 25. I hope that Act 26 keeps the ball rolling and knocks our collective socks off with all of its Moon Kingdom-y goodness!

I picked both. To me, they are one big episode. I've warmed up to "Karai" being at the end of Act24 (I like how its in sync with the action), but the BGM in Act25 after the Ginzouishou disappears is perfect.
