Ribbon no Kishi

130941lThere once was a king called Plastic
Whose smarts were less than fantastic
Dawn ’til dusk he was sleeping
Sucking candy and eating
When he wasn’t cranky or sarcastic

God gives children about to be born either a boy’s heart or a girl’s heart, but one of his cherubs messed around and the future ruler of Silverland got two hearts – both a girl and a boy. Because she’s a princess she has to pretend to be a prince and the cherub’s at the same time trying to get her boy’s heart out of her.

Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon SuperS

40267lUsagi Tsukino (CV: Kotono Mitsuishi) is the reincarnation of the Moon Princess. She now is the magical girl Sailor Moon with her friends and her boyfriend. Her future daughter, Chibiusa (CV: Kae Araki) has been sent from the future to train with her mother’s past self. Earth is now threatened by the queen of the dark side of the moon and a priest, Helios (CV: Taiki Matsuno), who has been captured, is hiding in Chibiusa’s dreams.

I haven’t covered the three past seasons, but some day I will. Although, I might not want to re-watch the third season at all, because although I started to find this season grating, the previous one was more so. However, in a sense, this is much worse, because Chibiusa completely steals the spotlight from Mamoru Chiba (CV: Tooru Furuya), who barely even showed up in this fourth season of Sailor Moon and is forever a shallow support character. I love Mamoru to death (because I read the comic years ago before watching anything of the show not aired in Sweden) and I don’t really mind Chibiusa, but this season was supposed to be about Mamoru. I could complain about it however much I’d, but it won’t help anyone 19 years after it has aired. Continue reading
