Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon: Serenity's First Fight and Usagi's Last Stand

Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, as anenko said in her picspam, is pure cheese wrapped around bad special effects and hilarious battle scenes. And it will end up breaking your heart.

You get two picspams for the price of one, here, because, in my own head, they are connected. The first is echoed in the second. The first makes me cheer like a lunatic, and the second leaves me in tears.

...anenko and biases are laughing their asses off at me right now. I can feel it.

Spoilers for major plot points for the second half of the series and includes a ridiculous amount of caps.

Beryl wants Usagi's man. Bad.

Bad enough that she threatens her own men, who were Mamoru's generals in their past lives. She's going to make them stab themselves if Mamoru/Endymion doesn't come to her of his own choice.

Usagi is understandably distressed, but Mamoru doesn't see any other options to keep his guys from eviserating themselves, so he forces himself forward.

Right before Beryl gets her long nasty fingernails on Mamoru, Usagi..kind of snaps.

Her head goes down, her voice drops, and she declares, "You will not touch him." Seeing as Usagi, as awesome as she is, is generally rather silly and upbeat and more prone to flailing over things like this, people are a little shocked by this.

Especially Mamoru.

Usagi is overtaken by the spirit of her past life, Princess Serenity, and Serenity REALLY has a problem with people touching her man.

Serenity starts striding towards Beryl and Mamoru, intent on reclaiming what's hers. Beryl starts attacking with flames and balls of death and stuff like that.

Serenity grabs a sword OUT OF FUCKING NOWHERE, catches Beryl's attacks with the sword, and negligently flings them to the ground. Huge explosions all around her as she continues relentlessly forward, looking PISSED.

Clearly, the lesson we should be learning here is DON'T FUCK WITH SERENITY'S MAN.

Beryl orders Mamoru to stop Serenity, and she gives him incentive..

She forces Nephrite to kill himself.

The Sailor Soldiers and Mamoru are shocked and horrified. Serenity DOESNT EVEN NOTICE.

Unwilling to see anyone else die, and probably kind of freaked out by Serenity, Mamoru stops her the only way he can. By bringing Usagi back to herself.

"I'm definitely coming back," he tells her. Then he disappears into Beryl's creepy fingernails clutches.

He does come back. He was right about that. Unfortunately, due to his desire to save the planet by taking an entire force of planetary destruction inside himself, he comes back COMPLETELY EVIL.

Wearing black and killing evil girls without a second's pause, Dark!Mamoru is BAD NEWS.

Usagi can't heal him. The Sailor Soldiers don't have a chance against him.

There is only one way to stop him.

Remember Serenity's kick ass explosion flinging stride across this same ground? Yeah, THIS IS NOTHING LIKE THAT.

Usagi is staggering forward, sobbing, dragging the sword behind her on the ground as Dark!Mamoru throws explosions at her. Her friends are screaming at her to stop, not to do it, because there is no way she can do this and not break.

She wins, but her friends are right. She couldn't do it and not break.


Those fights were EPIC!!! and Princess Sailor Moon was one of the BEST things about Live Action. You're totally right, this was an amazing show with bad special effects.

Mamoru is so hot.
Mamoru is EXTREMELY hot! that teeny little dimple! *dies*

i love the live action SO MUCH.
yessssss, epiccc. Epically sad but okay I loooved Serenity's fireball-slinging so much when I first saw it. So I will focus on that a lot right now. k.
Serenity flinging explosions is my favorite sequence of the entire show. she is so completely BAD ASS while she is doing it!
OMG! i love the scene where she kills Endymion, is so touching. The acting of Sawaii Miyuu is priceless, i love her as princess sailor moon.
I love this series.
Great job!
she kills me when she is staggering across the field, sword tip dragging behind her. i love this entire show, but these two scenes are so POWERFUL.
The part where Usagi snaps and goes into hyperbiatch mode has me squeeing hyserically every time. Myself and my spork thank you for feeding us :D

.....and I never noticed the fingernails until you pointed thm out, and now A) I cannot help but notice and feel icked out and B) wonder what the hell I thought they were before I realised they were fingernails. That rather disturbs me.....
that is SERIOUSLY my favorite sequence in the entire series. up next? Nephrite, cookies, and steer horns!

the fingernails are TERRIFYING. they want to come after you!
Just a quick question: Isn't Princess Serenity actually from Usagi's future? That was the plot in the anime--that she somehow had memories from her future.
no, in the live action, Princess Serenity is her past life, not her future. Confusing, isnt it?

just take them all as their own mythology - it makes things a little less headachey.


Sailor Moon Anime

Princess Serentity was not just her past life in the live action pretty guardian series it is also her past in the anime series and magna series two, and just to tell you her future life she is known has Neo Queen Serenity Queen Of Crystal Tokyo.
You're right, I was laughing at you . . . right until the point where I started sniffling over Usagi and Mamoru's EPIC DOOMED LOVE.

The look on Usagi's face, and the way she's dragging herself down that battlefield to face Dark!Mamoru! Why hello there, cheesy show, why don't you just *stomp on my heart* (again!)

I totally got all teary while capping that scene. AND I DIDNT CRY THE FIRST TIME.

so, what's your next picspam? i tried to cap the S-Oke performance, but it just doesnt work. it's too dynamic for a still medium like capping to work for me. i have to remind you that you already have the Nodame scene where he comes for her all capped and spammed already..have you crossposted it already?
I haven't decided yet! There's the Nodame Cantabile hug scene (already capped, as you pointed out), the Dark Mercury vs. Sailor Moon fight, possibly the ice cream scene from BOF, the flower scene from Full House (if I can remember what episode it takes place in!), and I still want to get a scene from Mighty Princess. And there's another tearjerker from the One Piece anime that I'm thinking of.

Damn. My capping fingers hurt just thinking about all of those picspams!
Dark Mercury vs Sailor Moon would be AWESOME, as would the ice cream or the face kicking or the fake drowning followed by a punch to the face from BOF would be AWESOME, the flower scene from Full House would be GLEEFUL (although i want a series of proposals like WHOA. all..three? of them), and then all those other things.

..yes, get right on those, please. i have to go deal with Nephrite and steer horns.

..should i cap the Dark Mercury/Nephrite stuff, too? just so i can give background?
I think I'm going to work on the PGSM caps next, then!

I wanted to do the roundhouse kick to the face from BOF, but it was almost impossible to get Jandi in action the last time I tried. I capped the massive bullying scene from ep. 4 (5?), but I'd rather post something where she's being awesome.

Do you remember what episode the flower scene took place in? (I'm a bad fan in general--I don't know how everyone else remembers those sorts of details!)

Yay for Nephrite and his horns! If you're up to it, I'd say yes to the Dark Mercury/Nephrite stuff, both as background, and because it's awesome.

(I think we're going to need more days in the month!)
Do you remember what episode the flower scene took place in? (I'm a bad fan in general--I don't know how everyone else remembers those sorts of details!)

i dont, and it's one that's on disc, not on my hard drive, and im entirely too lazy to buzz through the unsorted discs in my dvd case to try and find the discs and then have to do to all the trouble of OPENING MY DVD PLAYER and hitting PLAY.

...laziness generally wins out for me. if it was on my hd, i'd go through them real quick, but it isnt.

im thinking of just capping all the scenes of Nephrite being human. that would cover all of my issues.

dude, we SO need more days in this month! also, we'll need to do a round up post at brokemycaps pretty soon.

..i should probably get around to posting that Mei-chan ficlety thing i wrote for you.
all the trouble of OPENING MY DVD PLAYER and hitting PLAY.

Why hello there, THAT sounds familiar. And then you have to FAST FORWARD, and omg, how much WORK does one picspam call for?

(I might go through dangermousie's Full House posts; I'm almost certain she talked about the flower scene).

More Nephrite can be nothing but good.

And yes to the Mei-chan fic! There's so few fics in the fandom that I'm sure yours will be appreciated.

(I set up a page for Hanadan at Fanlore, but I'm not especially *involved* in the fandom. What sort of fannish info would you include for the jdrama?)
AHHH I love the live action sooo freaking much. They just turned the first season mythology completely upside down and twisted and AWESOME. Love evil bitch serenity, man.
the live action is the only one ive seen, honestly. I dont do anime, but i LOVE dramas, so yeah, this is it for me. Ive been trying to figure out bits of the other mythology, but it makes my head hurt, so i stick with what the drama tells me.

thanks for looking!
