This was a little better than the first 2 episodes. Sailor Mars enters the story and if I recall her backstory was fairly interesting. She wasn’t just a student, but a shrine maiden that is already connected with unusual powers–a lot of shows tend to thrown in teenagers with mystical powers without a moments notice but Sailor Moon gradually builds up the drama here. Parents worried about their missing children developed this at length, I was surprised at how much time the creators spent with creating this atmosphere for Rei.
Jadeite is called out for his failures by Queen Beryl and once again he is allowed to fight the Sailor Guardians using his ice powers. Captain Earth followed a formula between episodes 13-17 and here we’ve got a fairly similar formula– as the Shittenou attempt at finding the legendary silver crystal they are thwarted by a new Sailor Guardian each time. It’s great to see as this story is a simplistic straight-forward anime in the shojo- genre.
OVERALL IMPRESSION: 6/10
