The Best Of The 4 Movies!!!!!
1 January 2015 | by bigjackfilmsSee all my reviews

A fantastic movie. I love everything about it. Hell, the animation is some of the studios best, almost Myazaki Gibli quality.

I especially love the two driving characters, Kagome and Sango. Kagome, though being the main character of the series, she's really put to the test here and I will say that this is probably one of Monica Stori's best performances in the series.

Sango's relationship with Kirara is pushed to the limit here. Its almost if Kirara is like that friend you have that is kinda mentally ill and this is sorta there violent breakdown. And Sango really trying to save her is so touching.

There is a little nitpick of wanting a bit more Kikyo in there, being she's my favorite character in the series, but who am I to complain.

Where as Sailor Moon was the anime of my childhood, this series really treated me like an adult. I love the dark tragic backstories, the love triangle, and the villains are great.

If you wanna start watching it, this is a good place to introduce new fans. One of the best outta the four and defiantly in my Top 50 Films. 10/10
