This is the best series in Sailor Moon, with Sailor Stars in a close second, Classic third, and SuperS and Return last. Surprisingly, this one is much more mature than Return, Classic, and even SuperS. Rei has a dream of the oncoming silence, and witnesses death all around her. Unfortunately, she keeps this to herself, until the end of the season, when all of her sadness comes pouring out. This series marks the debut of Sailor Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and Saturn. Chibi-usa also plays a much bigger part here, too, as she befriends Hotaru and awakens the truth within. The relationship between Uranus and Neptune is beautiful, and is probably one of the reasons this series has fared so well. For those of you out there who have only seen the dub, and not the Japanese version, you are missing quite a bit. The biggest and most noticeable change is that in the dub Uranus and Neptune are cousins, however, in the original, they are lesbians. There is also more death and violence in the original. Themes that are covered in this season are friendship & kindness, death & sorrow, rebirth & reincarnation, and the fact that love can triumth over all. Those of you dubbies out there should try to find yourselves a fansub of this series..you're missing out! My rating: 10 out of 10...perfect!
