Rocky Baboa once said, "Life is not about how hard you it, it's about getting hit but picking yourself up." At this point in the arc, I was just emotionally drained and wasn't sure of anything.
There is a degree of suspense as your hopping not just will Sailor Moon/Usagi triumph but she will have the guts to do what has to be done. In a way this is sort of similar to the final arc "Sorsin's Comet" from "Avatar the Last Airbender" as Ang despite the chances he has to destroy his enemy, he is reluctant as what he has to do violates the principles he holds dear despite those principles being somewhat flawed. This is the same with Usagi with her fight with Galaxia, though her pacifistic views aren't entirely correct; personally I'm not a pacifist I don't always think it really works.
It really increases the jeopardy because as Usagi is blowing chances it also mean her chances of survival and success are dwindling. On one hand we are sort of for Usagi's views and way of disarming the conflict; but on another hand we're honestly hopping Usagi will just say frak it this isn't working and just take necessary action.
I don't really mind how this final conflict went, though personally I would of just gone completely ballistic on Galaxia, just beat the living crap out of her because I just completely hate her. Which I'll admit is one tiny con I have with this arc, it seems strange that Usagi kept her cool despite the fact that she's practically been pushed over the edge (I know I've been), it would of been interesting and in fact human to of seen Usagi actually get angry (which is something I rarely see her do which is kinda weird when you think about it)and just go all out, just blast away with each of her powers, or may'be even somehow utilize the lost senchi's powers at Galaxia may'be even go fist a cuffs.
But oh well, from how Usagi is able to resolve the conflict it reminds us why we really love this character and why she's a true hero. In a way this was sort of a spiritual conflict, Galaxia/Chaos despite having all of the power isn't really strong spiritually, as an old philosophy goes power without perception is spiritually useless and of no true value.
Usagi however is strong spiritually, because she doesn't really on magic, weapons, wands or any kind of power to resolve problems and conflicts. She uses her compassion and love which is to me her true power why she has triumphed most of the time, because these things feed her spiritually and make her strong enough to take action and do just about anything. Even when her friends and significant other are gone she still remembers their love and her love for them which lives on forever.
The final minutes after Usagi triumphs I'll admit were emotionally moving when in the aftermath we see everyone has been resurrected. Just seeing the Sailor Senchi back especially Mars again I couldn't help but actually produce tears of joy and I thought "Thank God" or should I say thank Sailor Moon/Usagi Tendo. After all of the crap both she and I been though just seeing them all alive again was well earned and just goes to show love can triumph over chaos.
I now leave with these words, I'm going to really miss this show, I honestly wish this wasn't the end I honestly feel this show can have more seasons it just felt like there was a lot more that could be built or even explored. Or heck even have a next generation where it would take place in the future go the fantasy/sci-fi route. But like any book I read sooner or later you reach the end.
So, farewell Sailor Moon and the rest, just like the moonlight and stars in the sky you will always shine bright. But most of all farewell Sailor Mars/Rei Hino, like an eternal flame you'll always burn strong and bright.
