Storyline

Fiore, an old friend from Mamoru's lonely childhood who couldn't survive on Earth, returns with flowers he promised Mamoru. But, the evil flower Kisenian overpowered Fiore's weak mind and manipulated him into spreading Kisenian's seeds over Earth in an effort to drain energy from everyone on Earth. Kisenian manages to do this because he's deceived Fiore using Fiore's long-lost friendship with Mamoru. It is up to Sailor Moon and the Sailor Senshi to stop Kisenian.

A fantastic movie, as long as you watch the Japanese version
14 May 2000 | by chibidracoSee all my reviews

In my opinion, this is the best of the three Sailor Moon movies. However, if you're a true Sailor Moon otaku then watch the Japanese version with subtitles. The English dub is filled with mistakes in attack names, translation errors to protect America's "sensitive children", the bad American voice actors, and the list goes on. They also replaced the movie's trademark song "Moon Revenge" with a cheesy, watered down teeny bopper song called "The Power of Love."

Overall, the uncut movie has an engrossing plot that shows how Sailor Moon has matured both as a character and a phenomenon from the first season. The film has something for everyone in it: romance, drama, comedy, and hooks for both young and old anime fans alike. The music is infectiously catching, and they actually pulled off making ChibiUsa likeable.

If you want a good Sailor Moon movie that will keep you hooked then go for this one. Rent it, buy it...just make sure you watch it!
