As promised this week's episode is getting reviewed much sooner than last week's. And it seems like it has been confirmed that the series will have twelve episodes in addition to the movie later in the year.
I thought the previous episode was setting things up for a larger story arc but even though that is not completely wrong it went a direction I was not quite expecting. Though I don't mind it as this story line helps a lot with making the girls more interesting characters and not just background dressing and seems to be setting up the finale, and perhaps even the movie.
Of course now the big thing is how will the other girls react to Mana being the traitor and of course who the boy Mana has been talking to is.
I do confess to geeking out a bit with Koike Rina in this episode as I am a long time Sailor Moon fan and do remember her from the live action series where she played the character Sailor Luna, Luna's human form for that version of the series. So I would not have any issue with her showing up again in the drama.
