SpeedRcr_X
yeah the new suits will have bike ports on them
Rule34Rocks
"Bike ports" eh? Since Japanese road laws prohibit them from ridding bikes they can just "ride" each other and truly become the Kamen "Rider".
SpeedRcr_X
...
Flame_Sniper
I could live with that...
FireFly_9
ugh you people
SpeedRcr_X
You know every time I hear about Netflix' "Squid Game" all I can think about is that scene in Tampopo where the guy has a squid in a glass jar and then puts it in--
spiritflame
just stop right here
FireFly_9
...disgusting
Flame_Sniper
What a way to mark 20 years... 20 YEARS of us hanging out here on this site.
SpeedRcr_X
That's two decades
FireFly_9
...I wouldn't have guessed, Haruka-poppa. Now, like Snorlax in the Pokedex, you will finally have been able to stand up.
.'~SugaBB_2999~'.
i tink dat onli tok snoarlex 15 yars
C'est_La_V
We weren't even 20 when we all first met back when The Dark Kingdom attacked...
// J_Daito //
I was over 20
C'est_La_V
YOU DON'T COUNT!!
GERMATOID
I WAS OVER 20 TOO
C'est_La_V
Stop Messing with the point!!
setsy_meioh
I was.. oh, you know what, f[BLEEP]k all of you
SpeedRcr_X
Y so Serious
Flame_Sniper
A pretty neat way to mark the anniversary is that a huge piece of Sailor Moon history was found by Ray Mona... the Saban Moon pilot episode
Flame_Sniper
It starts 1 hour 46 minutes into the video
Mdm_Maestro
They put a lot of work into that documentary, dear, why encourage people to skip past all of it?
Flame_Sniper
I didn't encourage anything :P I just like to cut to the chase
SpeedRcr_X
So basically, for the 25th anniversary I'm hearing that we should make the occasion in pure Suburban Senshi style, with an MST....
Mdm_Maestro
We should do both an MST and a movie review of it.
SpeedRcr_X
So taking a look the actual pilot is only 10 minutes long
Reverend_H
Gotta leave room for the commercials, yo
Reverend_H








Reverend_H
Yo they're starting out the music wit da in' bars from Hybrid's Dawn of the War yo
SpeedRcr_X
This was 1994 there's no way that music's that old
FireFly_9
"Eve of the War."
Reverend_H
Whatever yo it's the same
SpeedRcr_X








SpeedRcr_X
Here we go~
// J_Daito //
So there's a long intro narration here over planets. You'd think you were watching Lynch's Dune or something.
// J_Daito //
Interestingly they make a point of noting that Beryl took over the outer planets and stole their "jewels of power." Good jorb
SpeedRcr_X
...
setsy_meioh
...
Mdm_Maestro
...
C'est_La_V
...Talisman?
FireFly_9
LET'S NOT START THAT AGAIN
// J_Daito //
And they're called "Princess Warriors."
SpeedRcr_X
I'll take that over "Pretty Guardians" any day.
// J_Daito //
Agreed, especially since "Pretty" is such a terrible misnomer for you, Ten'ou
SpeedRcr_X
That's right! I'm more suave than pretty!
Reverend_H
"Queen Beryl must defeat the remaining Princess Warriors and obtain the remaining Jewels of Power..." Gotta catch 'em all, I guess yo.
FireFly_9
God we're still on the opening narration with nothing happening on screen. Interestingly the inner planets formed an alliance to stop Beryl, making the moon their capital. That actually makes sense as it's sort of neutral territory.
Flame_Sniper
"To affirm the new confederation"... oh no.
// J_Daito //
With a rebel yell?
Flame_Sniper
No just... no
FireFly_9
Wait. It goes on to say that to affirm this new treaty between Venus, Earth, Mars, Mercury and Jupiter, Queen Serenity [of the moon????] gave her daughter to be wed to Darien of Earth. How does this tie any of the other planets together?
GERMATOID
A SECRET FIVE WAY?
Flame_Sniper
<_< *wipes off a nosebleed*
SpeedRcr_X
Someone saw Sailor and the Seven Balls I see
GERMATOID
<-- IS A MAN OF CULTURE
Flame_Sniper
I ADMIT NOTH-- oh
FireFly_9
Okay the ceremony's starting and we finally have visuals
FireFly_9








SpeedRcr_X
Moon looks high AF right now
SpeedRcr_X








Flame_Sniper
WTF?! Mars looks like she came out of some late-night Cartoon Network sketch show!!
Flame_Sniper








// J_Daito //
Oh look it's Sailor Merida... I mean mercury
SpeedRcr_X
That sanctimonious smirk is sure on point though
Mizunomics01
You just envy her self-confidence and poise.
SpeedRcr_X
ZOMG the camera just whip pans and the narrator afterthoughts Venus and Jupiter
SpeedRcr_X








SpeedRcr_X








FireFly_9
Why does Jupiter have my hairstyle.
C'est_La_V
...what the hell did they do to my hair...
// J_Daito //








// J_Daito //
And now we get to the happy couple who look like they are going to play a game of pattycake. How salacious. It's even more lewd than holding hands.
SpeedRcr_X
Those big, lavender patty-cake hands...
SpeedRcr_X
Even here he likes the purple
// J_Daito //








// J_Daito //
They're even getting participation trophies. How sweet.
// J_Daito //








SpeedRcr_X
Why does Darien look like Ted Raimi here
FireFly_9
And why is he biting his lip like that...
.'~SugaBB_2999~'.
mmm yas dadi yasss pthbhbthpbththhhh
FireFly_9
ewww
Reverend_H
Dude must really like Roses, yo.
// J_Daito //








// J_Daito //
Queen Serenity what are you wearing
Mdm_Maestro
It's like something out of Galaxy Express 1999
C'est_La_V
"999"
Mdm_Maestro
DON'T you CORRECT me AINO MINAKO
SpeedRcr_X








SpeedRcr_X
Mercury what
// J_Daito //
She's a cripple
Mizunomics01
Fools that is obviously a highly-mechanized battle chariot.
SpeedRcr_X








SpeedRcr_X
LOL WTF Beryl has a battleship and it has the same boomerang thing she had stuck to her head
// J_Daito //
Don't mock the Boomerang.She used it to great effect to torment us and of course we could never seize it from her because it would always return to her.
// J_Daito //








Flame_Sniper
Well she's sure vamping it up
SpeedRcr_X
Is this supposed to be Super Beryl's metallia-infused form?
FireFly_9
Yes it's all in the fabulous eyeliner.
// J_Daito //








GERMATOID
THE SHIP IS GIVING BIRTH THROUGH ITS MOUTH LIKE SOME SPECIES OF FISH APPEAR TO!
Flame_Sniper
It really looks like some kind of avant-garde Cirque de Soliel performance.
// J_Daito //








// J_Daito //
One motherf[BLEEP]ker's always got to try and be different.
SpeedRcr_X
Blue / Grey / Red Color scheme? That motherf[BLEEP]ker is you, Jed!
// J_Daito //
...you go straight to hell Ten'ou
SpeedRcr_X








SpeedRcr_X
They sure are taking this "Sailor" thing literally
setsy_meioh
...why do the inner senshi get cool gimmicks like flying spacecraft?
IrnChef_Jovian
You all had helicopters. Personal Helicopters. Personal.
SpeedRcr_X
BUT OUR HELICOPTERS COULDN'T FLY THROUGH SPACE
SpeedRcr_X








SpeedRcr_X
Oh my god it's Red Battler / Rhett Butler Youma
=/\catablanca/\=
Why does he look familiar...
C'est_La_V
Because he's one of the guys Luna cheated on you with, Artemis...
=/\catablanca/\=
OH GOD I'D BLOCKED THE MEMORY. WHY.... WHYYYYYYYYY
// J_Daito //








// J_Daito //
...he has a GUN
SpeedRcr_X
..That there is some furry's powerful erotic dream imagery right there
Crwn_Frt_Gmer
....
IrnChef_Jovian
NO MOTOKI! REMEMBER THE REVELATION. HUMANS ARE ANIMALS TOO
IrnChef_Jovian
SAY IT WITH ME
Crwn_Frt_Gmer
Humans are animals too...
IrnChef_Jovian
That's right... that's right!
IrnChef_Jovian








ThatGuyWith_Maskses
They accurately captured the angst of my inner soul
// J_Daito //
So they just told "Darien" to go save the Space Galleon with all their families on board. This will end well I'm sure
SpeedRcr_X
Oh hey they're handing Moon the POWERFUL CRYSTAL
SpeedRcr_X








// J_Daito //
That is some powerful sag
FireFly_9








FireFly_9
Looks like Artemis got a glow up...
=/\catablanca/\=
am I a Maine Coon?
SpeedRcr_X
Hate to tell you buddy... but that's Luna.
=/\catablanca/\=
WHAT THE F[BLEEP]K SHE STOLE MY HEART THEN MY MONEY FOR CHILD SUPPORT NOW SHE STEALS MY LOOKS?!!?!
=/\catablanca/\=
SHE'S A F[BLEEP]KING DEMONESS
FireFly_9
Don't overreact
=/\catablanca/\=








FireFly_9
...I... oh... oh dear.
SpeedRcr_X








SpeedRcr_X
This whole art style is very Filmation. It could fit right in with He-Man or She-Ra.
C'est_La_V
I hate that Mercury gets her own special chair
// J_Daito //
Wow didn't know you were ableist, Aino
C'est_La_V
IT'S GOT A VISOR AND EVERYTHING IT'S NOT A WHEELCHAIR. WHY DOES EVERYONE ELSE HAVE TO STAND AND SHE CAN SIT DOWN
FireFly_9
That's not... I'm sure she would love to stand
C'est_La_V
WHY WOULD YOU LOVE TO STAND WHEN YOU CAN SIT DOWN, HAVE A PERSONAL SPACE SHIELD AND FIRE LASERS FROM YOUR SHIP SURFBOARD THING
SpeedRcr_X
She has a point
FireFly_9
Don't you start. Haruka-poppa
// J_Daito //








// J_Daito //
And Darien's mission ended as we knew it would. In flames.
// J_Daito //








// J_Daito //
And tears. Flames and tears.
setsy_meioh








setsy_meioh
Oh god this... this "fashion". What is it, Space Renn-faire?
SpeedRcr_X
Is this... is this the reason why she's evil because when she was a tiny blue demon-child dressed up in fluffy shoulder-winged medieval vests complete with her hair done up like goat horns no one had the balls to tell her she looked stupid out of some misguided sense of gentle kindness and as a result she paraded herself everywhere strutting like the c[BLEEP]k of the walk and then there was a lot of giggling and snide comments about her looks by the cruel kids in the back and then someone finally told her the truth and the shame and rage of it all collapsed her into a dark ball of bile and hatred and she just snapped and decided to end everything
FireFly_9
sure why not
Flame_Sniper








Flame_Sniper
So now they're going "through the vortex and beyond oblivion"...
Flame_Sniper








Flame_Sniper
...in other words, to Earth.
SpeedRcr_X
Yeah I feel that way about Earth a lot lately too
SpeedRcr_X
Wait
SpeedRcr_X
So... is our Earth the same as their Earth, or an AU, or what...
SpeedRcr_X








// J_Daito //
Serena Victoria has no time for these questions. For she must par-tay.
SpeedRcr_X








SpeedRcr_X
What even is happening right now
spiritflame
trying to undress / so hard; gravity flings / self-tacking schoolgirl
FireFly_9
Per the lyrics of the insert song "[Sailor Moon]'s got a life in the sky and another here on Earth."
SpeedRcr_X
That clarifies exactly nothing?
Crwn_Frt_Gmer








Crwn_Frt_Gmer
The only queen here...
IrnChef_Jovian
.............
FireFly_9
The lyrics to the insert song call them "Princess fighters" now not "Princess Warriors".
SpeedRcr_X








SpeedRcr_X
Well it's so they can have their own special club they can never talk about with outsiders.
SpeedRcr_X
This montage is so painfully 90s. It's cringe, but I have to think some children would have been hypnotized
// J_Daito //
can confirm (was hypnotizing children all through the 90s)
SpeedRcr_X
They weren't hypnotized just dumbstruck by how stupid you looked man
// J_Daito //
Don't be jealous because these days the only looks you get are ones of pity
.'~SugaBB_2999~'.
ow barrrn ror
SpeedRcr_X
That's not true! Tell them, Michi!
Mdm_Maestro
...
SpeedRcr_X
TELL THEM
Mdm_Maestro
...well at least you get looks dear. Not like Setsuna, who doesn't even have a name.

ANYWAY getting back to the show I gotta say their toy game is on point
GERMATOID
$100 FROM PREMIUM BANDAI
// J_Daito //
No it has a light-up effect you'll need to add another 150
// J_Daito //








Flame_Sniper
Say what you want about the rest of it but I think Moon's boots are way better here.
SpeedRcr_X








SpeedRcr_X
POWER POSE EVERYONE
=/\catablanca/\=
That's the "front of a cereal box" pose
C'est_La_V
...god look at mercury in her space chariot...
SpeedRcr_X
Do you like... kick people with crutches, Mina? This is a new, disturbing side of your personality. Do you envy people on Rascal scooters?
C'est_La_V
SHE'S GOT A FLYING THRONE!!!!
Mizunomics01

=/\catablanca/\=
Why does this bother you so much??
C'est_La_V
WHERE IS MY STUFF? MY HAIR ISN'T RIGHT. I HAVE NO GUARDIAN CAT. BUT SHE GETS A THRONE
=/\catablanca/\=
Wait... you miss me there?
C'est_La_V
OF COURSE I MISS YOU, YOU STUPID OLD MAN

T_____________________T
FireFly_9








FireFly_9
So they are "sailing to the planet Jupiter."
SpeedRcr_X
God they took the title so literally.
FireFly_9
Well step back for a minute. Taking this on its own without reference to the original source material, isn't it an appealing, almost Jules Verne-like idea? Imagine just hopping on your special little sailing ship and taking to the stars... it's romantic in a way...
C'est_La_V
...and Mercury flies in her CHARIOT because she's so much BETTER than everyone
Flame_Sniper
...she literally can't use her legs
C'est_La_V
All I'm saying is... the rest of us could have had space chariots too.
// J_Daito //
I'll break your legs if you want
SpeedRcr_X
Wait so they're sailing back through the vortex... to what, Alternate Jupiter? Are these sailors basically shacking up in an alternate universe until they need to jump back out and fight in their home universe?
SpeedRcr_X
That's actually a pretty rad concept
// J_Daito //








// J_Daito //
So they made it to Jupiter and moon looks pissed. She looks here like the typical 90's Nickelodeon Rugrats angry mom
// J_Daito //








SpeedRcr_X
Fight time is nao
SpeedRcr_X
Oh s[BLEEP]t
SpeedRcr_X








SpeedRcr_X
It's the guy from the "narrows it down" meme
SpeedRcr_X








// J_Daito //








// J_Daito //
Wait Mercury's space chariot has a SPIKE on the end of it
C'est_La_V
SEE! Look how tricked-up it is!
=/\catablanca/\=
"out"
Mizunomics01
All the better to impale people who complain about its design...
C'est_La_V
<_<
SpeedRcr_X








SpeedRcr_X
LOL Mecury is so done with Venus here...
C'est_La_V
"oh no my fancy chariot"
=/\catablanca/\=
Okay Mina you are going in TIME OUT
SpeedRcr_X








SpeedRcr_X
Meanwhile Moon is over here shooting laser beams out of her hands and looking thrilled at the idea. Which, to be totally fair, I would be too.
Mdm_Maestro








Mdm_Maestro
And just like you, dear, she had a little too much to drink and threw it back up spectacularly.

IrnChef_Jovian








IrnChef_Jovian
My face after having watched this
Mdm_Maestro
So how do we rate it?
SpeedRcr_X
Plot - it was an internal pilot, so pretty thin, but also exactly enough to describe the concept, and pretty much on par with 90's cartoons of the day. I'll give it 2/2 dragonballs.
C'est_La_V
Visuals - It was pretty cheap even for the time, I'd say 1 out of 2 dragonballs.
Mdm_Maestro
Music, very basic. 1 out of 2.
FireFly_9
Yes but you need to think of it as an intentionally unpolished product. They couldn't spend a lot of money on it, and the live-action melding was interesting. It certainly lived up to 90's expectations. I will give it the full dragonball for overall feeling. Plus, we should feel privileged we are even able to see this almost three decades later.
SpeedRcr_X
*counts it up* so there we have it... after 27 years... Saban Moon... the Suburban Senshi rating...




SpeedRcr_X
And after Twenty years, we want to thank whoever's left reading our stuff! I know it's been a lot of dry spells... but we're still out there lurking... thinking... plotting and planning...

SUBURBAN SENSHI: WE'RE OLDER, BUT WE'RE NOT DEAD...YET! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Excerpt End - 4:57 PM 08/25/22

https://www.suburbansenshi.com





July 7, 2001: Yuuichiro was hit on by an ambitious policewoman, when Hawks-Eye attacked using Furau, determined to capture Sailor Moon. As the Senshi gasped in shock, The Amazon Trio joined them, castigating the girls for their sentimentality. The Moonlight Knight got distracted, unable to get a haunting tune from the past out of his mind. When all hope seemed lost, the Senshi got a break through a precision-guided rose throw from the Moonlight Knight. Sailor Moon used the Silver Moon Crystal Power Kiss attack to win.
