I re-read the manga to make this post about the top 3 or 4 things that we can expect from Sailor Moon Crystal - Act 6. For those who don't know, let me explain.
The new adaptation of Naoko Takeuchi's work follows the manga very closely, yes there have been some variations, but overall we can predict much of the new anime plot from taking a look at the manga itself.
For this episode I went back and read Act 6 - Tuxedo Kamen, and for me everything in this episode is important. Why? Because it's the core of Usagi's relationship with Mamoru! But, ok, not everything can be about them, so I choose a few moments that I would like to see animated.
Let's take a look
Ami and Mako crushing on Motoki
Yes, everyone crushes on Motoki! Well, that's not true. Rei and Minako never do. But for from our current Sailor Team, these two girls have a crush on the arcade guy. Sailor Moon at this point is only crushing on Tuxedo Mask and in Mamoru Chiba a little bit. She doesn't know yet that the two are the same person. Which is odd, since Luna clearly knows the truth.
Ami finds the secret control room
Luna decides it's time to introduce the girls to the secret control room under the arcade. Ami is the first one to know and they find out where the bad guys are hiding thanks to this!
Everything about Sailor Moon/Usagi and Tuxedo Kamen/Mamoru
Well, as I mentioned in the opening lines of this post. This is a very important episode for the two of them. Sadly after reading I can tell that Tuxedo Mask really doesn't do anything.
The guy starts a treasure hunt for the crystal and Zoisite takes advantage of that to dominate the city absorbing their energy through the television. When he sees everyone in danger he goes to the only person he knows has the power to fix things, Sailor Moon.
He finds Usagi and asks her to transform and heal everyone. She does, and the best thing the guy does is taking care of her after she pases out from exhaustion. I'll give him credit for that.
I sometimes feel really bad for how awful Tuxedo's reputation is online, but is hard to defend him in especially due to the fact that he is somehow useless during the first acts of the manga. Is not until a few volumes ahead that he finds more power to help the woman he loves as much as possible, but in the beginning, the guy really is powerless. He grows a little bit more as a character as the story moves forward.
