*** The Nehelennia arc in Stars is in a weird position of filler and not. Yes, it doesn't fit with the rest of Stars, but that's because it's source material wasn't Stars. It's actually a very loose adaptation of the second part of the manga for SuperS (The third volume of SuperS focuses on what the Outer Senshi are doing and Hotaru's reawakening as a Senshi. After they (the Outer Senshi) get their upgrades from Hotaru they go to join the rest of the Senshi against Nehelennia and combine their powers to give Sailor Moon her Eternal Form).

** Something to note is that the manga and anime versions of Galaxia are very different. While anime Galaxia could very well draw power from the Milky Way, manga Galaxia is pretty much a straight up villain being used by Chaos. Manga Galaxia's flashback shows her traveling from planet to planet to find one that suited her tastes and destroying the ones she didn't like (i.e. all of them). She explicitly plans on stealing Sailor Moon's Sailor Crystal for it's power and plans on creating a new galaxy where she's the ultimate ruler. The manga version of Galaxia probably named herself.

\n**It's ValuesDissonace. In Japan an older man is seen as better able to care for his female partner. It's also worth pointing out that the main problem in the relationship is Usagi's age. 14 and 19/20 is squicky but 20 and 25 isn't. The manga also implies that while the two might have some heavy makeout sessions, Mamoru is determined to sit out TheJailbaitWait.

** When ADV acquired the license to Sailor Moon, they also acquired the rights to distribute the DiC Dub too. Why bother spending money on redoing the dub when you can make money on the one you already have. ADV released the dubbed episode to video years before they released the subbed sets.

to:

** Actually the Cardians started attacking ''before'' the girls had their memories awakened, so perhaps the shock of all these memories blurring together has muddled their perception of time just a little. And maybe Ami has noticed that the two aliens behave like lovers, giving her little reason to suspect a brother and sister.




to:

** We do at least get to meet Rei's father briefly in the live action. Ami's mother likewise gets an episode to her. Minako doesn't appear to have parents there, since her manager behaves like a surrogate father to her.




to:

** And if it helps, once Usagi becomes Neo-Queen Serenity, she loses the ability to become a Sailor Soldier. So as Princess Serenity, she's still Sailor Moon powered up. Neo-Queen Serenity is a new identity completely.




to:

** At the start of Season 2, Luna uses the crescent moon to awaken the girls' memories.




to:

** The anime doesn't use that plot point, so most of the villains are unrelated to each other. Nehelenia is hundreds of years old now, isn't she? She was once a little girl who got slowly corrupted by loneliness and vanity. That's bound to take a while, and she had to pick up her power somewhere.




to:

** It seems to be the case. The possession manifests as a blackout where the victim can't remember what they did or where they were. Only Ami's psychic love interest was able to figure it out I think. The possession never seems to last too long - only a few hours at the longest. Except in Nephryte's case - where the victims would be under his spell for a few days.




to:

** Like in ''Equestria Girls'', everyone is AmazingTechnicolorPopulation. It doesn't correspond to any real world race. Just that universe's rules and system.


Added DiffLines:

** Note that Zoicite doesn't know the jig is up until Beryl is right about to kill him. He didn't have time to flee.


Added DiffLines:

** In the anime at least, the Outers showed up to stop Sailor Saturn. Once that mission was completed they had no reason to return. And isn't it Pluto herself who approaches Uranus and Neptune in the anime to tell them they have another mission - and getting Hotaru back?

*** In the manga it's explained that they lost the power to transform when the solar eclipse that kicked of SuperS took place. They come back about halfway through the arc when Hotaru gets her powers back and then upgrades the others. ItMakesSenseInContext. The Nehellenia mini arc at the star of Stars is an adapted version of it to bring the outer senshi back into the story.

*** The problem with this is that Sailor V was written and released alongside Sailormoon. In fact, the first chapter of V was published mere months before the first chapter of Sailormoon, and then V releases became very staggered from then on (16 chapters over the course of six years). Sailor V was originally a predecessor that ''quickly'' became a prequel, providing extra insight on the life of Sailor ''Venus''; it's supposed to be read alongside Sailormoon as chapters come out. Yes, a lot of people are unfortunately going to read V like a predecessor (people already have this thing about reading prequels ''before'' the chronologically later works they're supposed to be familiar with ''beforehand''), and things like what you describe are exactly why. On the other hand, the vast majority of people who are even aware V exists are probably pretty familiar with the general ideas of Sailormoon, if not outright fans.

* One about the manga and Anime/SailorMoonCrystal, based on Act 23: How can destroying the ''future'' affect the '''''past''''' so much to make Usagi and the others feel their bodies torning apart?

* Usagi's transformation sequence always starts with (cue music) a shot of her hand up, her nails going all sparkly and ending up being polished pink. By the end of the sequence, she has her classic elbow-length gloves on. Why does it lead with the manicure? HER NAILS JUST GET COVERED UP!



* When Sailor Moon finds out the day's monster stole a boyfriend from Sailor Venus, she is fully in the mindset of not saving her/letting her die.
** This is the same episode where Minako, upon learning that said boyfriend and said friend were truly in love with each other, ''faked her own death'' instead of just breaking up with the guy and going home. Yes, teenagers can be dramatic, but wouldn't it have been more work to keep up the "I'm dead!" charade? So yea, I don't think anyone was in their right mind that episode.
*** Except you seem to forget that Minako flounced the country after faking her death. Pretty sure it's not hard to trick some people that you're dead if you're on the opposite side of the world. Isn't that the whole premise of Witness Protection?
*** Then again, given how popular Sailor V was, and that Sailor V herself had been spotted in Tokyo several times before the anime began, at least well enough to get a video game, anime and other merchandise, she was doing a very poor job of playing dead. It's unlikely that public sightings of a superhero wouldn't make some sort of international news.
*** Forget about how hard it would be to "remain dead" for a second and think about how horrible it is to trick someone who loves you as a little sister that you've died. Am I the only one upset that Katarina didn't punch Minako in the face after she returned to normal?

** It's more that entangling the heroes in something is a good way to put them at a disadvantage and keep the challenge/danger level up while still keeping the violence fairly "soft" and doing minimal actual injury to the girls. It's also really handy for cutting down on the number of active combatants to manage during a fight scene when you're working with a regular team of five girls plus possible allies against a single monster: tangling up several of the girls allows the action to focus on one or two.
