[15:01] <Arrlaari> Last time on Sailor Moon: we got a new toy. Usagi Get Equipped with: Moon Wand
01[15:01] <Froborr> lol
01[15:02] <Froborr> Credits over, ad.
[15:02] <Arrlaari> Indeed
[15:02] <Arrlaari> I'm getting the short crunchyroll devices ad
[15:02] <Arrlaari> 2x12 seconds, and it's done
[15:02] <Arrlaari> Yours?
01[15:02] <Froborr> Not me.
01[15:03] <Froborr> back
[15:03] <Arrlaari> I guess Crunchyroll divides the US into regions for ad sales
01[15:03] <Froborr> Oh no, please don't be a Tuxedo Fedora focus ep.
01[15:03] <Froborr> WTF "Who are you?"
01[15:03] <Froborr> Didn't he show up at her HOUSE last episode?
[15:04] <Arrlaari> He doesn't know who the figure in that dream we just saw is
01[15:04] <Froborr> "Who are you, girl I'm stocking and making out with when she's unconscious?"
01[15:04] <Froborr> Oh.
01[15:05] <Froborr> Okay, he totally posed for that picture.
01[15:05] <Froborr> That's not a news photo, that's his headshot he uses to apply for roles in local TV productions.
01[15:06] <Froborr> Are they watching TV on a crystal ball?
01[15:06] <Froborr> Like, they're using the ball to remote-view a TV that's showing the news?
01[15:06] <Froborr> That's AMAZING.
01[15:08] <Froborr> That's pretty legit power for a magical girl show.
[15:08] <Arrlaari> I like how the planet whose destruction gets imagined is Jupiter. That's what you get for asking questions!
01[15:08] <Froborr> LOL, point.
01[15:08] <Froborr> I'm always amused by these super-advanced alien civilizations that have nothing between "slightly worse than most handguns" and "planet-killer."
01[15:09] <Froborr> Silly Scouts, don't you know ALL cats are from the moon?
[15:09] <Arrlaari> Ad soon
01[15:09] <Froborr> Likewise.
01[15:09] <Froborr> Ad.
[15:10] <Arrlaari> Same as before?
01[15:10] <Froborr> No, now it's for a new Batman show.
01[15:11] <Froborr> back
[15:11] <Arrlaari> I gotta say, seeing that same crunchy ad twice every break gets old
01[15:11] <Froborr> Yeah, I hate that.
01[15:11] <Froborr> How does everyone suddenly know what the Legendary Silver Crystal is?
01[15:11] <Froborr> ...oh, mind control, that's how.
[15:11] <Arrlaari> Tuxedo Mask told them
01[15:12] <Froborr> Oh, so that's where that room is.
[15:13] <Arrlaari> I tell you what, they didn't have this swanky secret base in the old cartoon
[15:13] <Arrlaari> Hm, "taskete" translated as "save" is a poor choice here
01[15:14] <Froborr> Yeah, "help" would have been a lot less obnoxious.
[15:14] <Arrlaari> It's often used in that sense but in this case it's clearly used for "help" which is being very generous
01[15:15] <Froborr> Aw, Mars and Jupiter's transformation have been de-badassified.
01[15:15] <Froborr> Wait, why is Usagi losing energy?
[15:16] <Arrlaari> I dunno any more than you tbh
01[15:17] <Froborr> Damn skippy you don't have special abilities, you non-teleporting loser.
[15:18] <Arrlaari> I dunno what Usagi is talking about she is not at all in the same no-powers boat as Mamoru
01[15:18] <Froborr> Yeah, she has the Tiara of Death and the awful crying thingy.
01[15:19] <Froborr> I was not expecting a confrontation with Queen Beryl this early!
01[15:21] <Froborr> Is this the first time seeing her full sequence since ep 1?
[15:21] <Arrlaari> I think they've made time for it at least once since then
[15:21] <Arrlaari> Not sure
01[15:23] <Froborr> That's an interesting effect for a move with "Healing" in the name.
01[15:23] <Froborr> Okay, this latter part is more like it.
01[15:23] <Froborr> BUT WHY WAS HER ENERGY EBBING?
01[15:24] <Froborr> Oh hey, she figured it out a lot earlier than I expected.
01[15:24] <Froborr> So that's good!
01[15:25] <Froborr> Ad but I think we no longer care.
01[15:25] <Froborr> So, thoughts?
[15:25] <Arrlaari> Zoicite identified himself as Beryl's European commander
01[15:25] <Froborr> Yeah, that was kind of interesting.
[15:25] <Arrlaari> That's something I heard about being a thing in the Manga, it didn't come up in the old show
01[15:26] <Froborr> Ah.
01[15:26] <Froborr> I feel like last week's episode was a LOT better.
01[15:26] <Froborr> But this was all right.
[15:26] <Arrlaari> So it wasn't fully on screen, but Mamoru totally kissed Usagi after she fainted.
01[15:26] <Froborr> Are you serious?
01[15:26] <Froborr> I missed that.
01[15:27] <Froborr> So now it's officially a thing, he's a necrophiliac.
01[15:27] <Froborr> (IIRC, despite the name, it includes fetishizing unconscious people.)
[15:27] <Arrlaari> 21:15
[15:27] <Arrlaari> As he moves in for the kiss, his watch falls off
01[15:27] <Froborr> Already closed the window, I'll take your word for it.
01[15:28] <Froborr> Dude is SERIOUSLY GROSS
01[15:28] <Froborr> Okay.
01[15:28] <Froborr> Well, I'm going to watch the last episode of Saikano.
[15:28] <Arrlaari> Other than presuming consent because Memories of their Past Lives & Destiny etc., he's mostly about telling Usagi that She's Awesome and She Can Do It
01[15:29] <Froborr> Yeah, but the presumed consent thing is kind of spectacularly awful.
[15:29] <Arrlaari> It's worth remembering that Usagi is more or less admitted to be the author's self insert, and Mamoru is her personal fantasy boyfriend
01[15:30] <Froborr> That doesn't make it less creepy IMO?
[15:30] <Arrlaari> It says something unfortunate about the way romantic tropes in fiction shape everyone's expectations
01[15:30] <Froborr> Yeah, it really does.
01[15:31] <Froborr> Tuxedo Fedora is like living concentrate of Everything Fucked Up About Fairy Tale Romance.
