Elemental Goddess is a fanime and Sailor MoonFan Film created by Youtube user diamant88. The show is about 5 girls who have been given special rings by Mandana, the Goddess (in name only, it seems) of Virtue/Goodness, in order to transform and save the planet from the evil (partly) alien group known as the "Demonic 5", who are wrecking havoc in a nameless Middle Eastern country. Basically, it's your standard Magical Girl fare with schizophrenic plots and the potential for a lot of racial faux pas and awkward looking animation.Episodes of the show can be found here.Nico Nico Dougamirrorsoftheepisodesalso exist.
Animation Bump: During transformation sequences and attacks...because they were traced.
The second half of Episode Two also qualifies.
"Blind Idiot" Translation: the deleted Wikipedia article gives "Chikara no Ikari" as the Japanese title for the first episode, "Power of Anger". The words are in the wrong order - it should be "Ikari no Chikara".
Good Is Not Nice: Mandana, Queen of Goodness, is rude and bitchy towards others (most of the time it's uncalled for), is immature as her teenage charges, opted to run away from a restaurant when she saw she had no money as opposed to work off the bill or something (and we never do find out if she paid them back later), and is just a rude woman in general.
Hair Flip: Gypsy does this. In the video "Gypsy's Revelation," it's this that clues Stephanie and Susan as to who the random girl approaching them is.
I Do Not Own: "REMARK: Sailor Moon-fanmade! That means there's no originality in it! It's just for entertaining and NOTHING else."
Informed Ability: According to the wiki, Jessica has "one of the purest hearts." You would never come to that conclusion by watching her.
Informed Flaw: Mandana says that Jessica always becomes "incredibly arrogant" after winning a battle. Thing is, we only saw her win one battle before. However, given how there's about two episodes made so far, it might not be the case.
Chip: "Yeah, like that one time. That one time ever."
Mood Whiplash: In the special episode, the Token Trio are once again bickering amongst themselves, the Big Bad acting thoroughly embarrassed, zany music is playing...and then he ties all three girls to a tree and sets it—oh, no, the area around them on fire, and the mood instantly sobers.
Hmm, this seems like a pretty unremarkable Magical Girlfanime...wait, are they talking about Islamic fundamentalism?
Mukokuseki: All of the characters, except for the villains, look Caucasian... even through the show takes place in the Middle East. (The only indication of this is the Farsi on some of the buildings, the mosque that Jessica falls into in Episode 2, a nearly throw away mention of Mt. Damavand (an active volcano and the tallest mountain in Iran), and the abayas that only the 2 diehard (and evil) female Muslim characters wear. Otherwise, the city just looks like a traced version of Azabu Juuban.)
Old Shame: The special episode, which diamant88 has taken off of Youtube along with the MSTed version via a false DMCA.note It's technically more legally sound than the original video is since it's commentary/a (albeit harsh) critique, thus falling under Fair Use. Not to mention he's claiming ownership of a video full of elements, story and image wise, from Sailor Moon (Along with the other MSTed episodes. But that was more of a backlash against the show being mocked.) Both can still be seen on other sites, however.
Yank the Dog's Chain: In episode 2, Mandana wins three-million dollars in the lottery, but her winning ticket gets soaked and the ink blurs so no one can read the numbers.
You Have Failed Me: Whenever a Monster of the Week is defeated, four vines come from the ground, grabs said monster, a pit pops out from the bottom and there is a large sign saying "Game Over". The vines then drag the monster to what might be hell.
