** It's not really touched on but a lot of people were suspicious of Rei for ages because of her psychic powers. They don't know the extent of her powers but everyone thought she was creepy. So as the disappearances are happening near the temple, and Rei's already suspicious, they decide to pin it on her.

* Why were all the vilains (Except the BigBads) named after gemstones?

* Why were OK. Serious question here. At the end of the fifth season, all of the vilains (Except the BigBads) named protagonists are revived after gemstones?defeating Chaos, with the curious exception of Luna and Artemis. Yet at the same time, we're shown evidence that they must have survived, since we've seen their KidFromTheFuture, Diana. So how can they go on to have a child if they weren't revived?

* Come to think of it, why did Viz get really bad masters to the series? If Toei was ''finally'' willing and able to relicense the franchise to outside countries, wouldn't they want Viz to get the best masters around? I heard that even Toei might not have had great masters, but why didn't they just source them from the Italian DVDs if that's true? I've heard those have really good remasters on them, so why didn't they? Plus, why did the company that put the DVDs and Blu-Rays together pay more close attention to the quality control for Season 1's sets? Overstauration of colors, ghosting, and the DVDs apparently having the ''worst'' of the problems if you watch them on a non-widescreen TV making the episodes in black boxes? Did they not check the things after printing the first copies to make sure there wasn't any noticeable problems? This doesn't make much sense.

** Another theory: maybe the girls' hairstyles aren't as distinctive in universe as you might think at first. Remember, the senshi are celebrities--Venus had an anime about her and the girls are all merchandised; it's not that crazy to assume that people decided to do their own hair in similar ways, kicking off a "senshi hairstyle" fad. Maybe there's other girls running around Tokyo with a "Moon bun and pigtail" hair, maybe tiaras are the latest craze, maybe blonde hair dye sales are through the roof. It might throw later enemies off the scent if there's plenty of senshi lookalikes are running around.

* Why do the original Moon Kingdom/Queen Serenity senshi wear Japanese schoolgirl outfits designed from the 20th century British Royal Nayy uniform?

** The thing is, Galaxia seems to have a lot of information about the Solar System, such as knowing she needed a secondary threat (Nehellenia) to awaken the currently dormant Saturn crystal, or the way she goes straight for the kill with Mamoru. It's hard to think she didn't know wxactly who had the Sailor Crystals. It's a bit of a stretch, but a logical explanation could be that she keeps her minions in the dark on purpose so they get increasingly stressed for the constant failures and get to the point of wreaking enough havoc to draw Princess Kakyuu out of hiding. After all, she only lets them fool around until Kakyuu shows herself, then she disposes of the last remaining one and gets down to business big time. Considering how effective she is when she handles things herself, she was probably just buying time to get the Kinmoku crystal before proceeding to take over the Solar System.

** No, because they actually look different, what we see as viewers looks the same so nobody gets confused (and because it's cheaper to lot alter the character models too much) but it's acknowledged in universe as them being unrecognisable even to each other. The only exception seems to eb Tuxedo Mask, who isn't a Sailor Scout and Princess Serenity.

* How/why was Mamoru reborn years before the rest of the characters who died and were sent to earth at the same time? Just because Takeuchi wanted him to be the hunky older guy and didn't think/care about the time line?

to:

** For Pluto at least her Deadly Scream attack seems pretty linked to her relationship to the Underworld and her time abilities are the result of her job (much like how Sailor moon gets her own sailor powers as well as using the power of the Silver Crystal). As for Uranus, maybe there's some obscure lore that links her with the Earth? Or maybe she's blasting wind through the Earth? It's hard to tell since her attack is just a big yellow ball.

* What is it with Pluto and Uranus' powers? (I specifically mention them because the Inner Senshi can all be explained with the Japanese names of their planets.) Pluto/Hades was the god of the Underworld, and Sailor Pluto even mentions it in her post-transformation speech, yet she has powers over and guards the gate of ''time'', which is the domain of Cronos, otherwise known as ''Saturn'' by the Romans. She even PRAYS to Cronos for some of her more powerful attacks. (The only other Senshi I can recall praying to their respective deity is Sailor Jupiter invoking Jupiter/Zeus for Supreme Thunder.) Uranus, in the meantime, was the deity of the sky, expressly called as such by Sailor Uranus' post-transformation speech, Sailor Uranus calls herself the Soldier of the Wind, yet her attack is... an ''earthquake''? How?
