With Queen Beryl defeated and her Dark Kingdom destroyed, Usagi and the rest of the Sailor Senshi have returned to their normal lives, with one exception: none of them have any recollections of ever being Senshi! When a new threat appears in town, will the girls regain their memories in time for Sailor Mars, Sailor Venus, Sailor Jupiter, Sailor Mercury and Sailor Moon to save the day once more? And just who is that little girl with the pink hair? Only time and transformations will tell!
Just like the first Memorial, the Sailor Moon R Memorial is an almost hour and a half long summary of the season. It’s narrated by Usagi and Chibiusa. After the summary, there’s a brief look at some of the monsters, and following that is all of the fifteen second commercial clips for each episode. Most of what I said about the first Memorial applies here as well. There’s no new information being added here, and is just a really long summary. It’s great if you haven’t seen the season in awhile and want a refresher without watching the season all over again. Also, it does really well at hitting the dramatic moments, even making you tear up a few times. However, I do feel it’s a little long. Even with all of the emotional stuff to keep me interested, it starts to drag on after awhile. They could have shortened it a little more than they did. Also, the very end, with all those commercials clips? It was interesting to see how they advertised each episode, but it got really old really fast. Content warning for brief nudity, but you should know that if you’ve watched the show. So, overall, this memorial was fairly well done for as long as it is, and it captured the emotions and the essence of the show really well. It’s just kind of long, without adding anything new to the show.
