Sailor Moon SuperS: Black Dream Hole review

(Remember, if this review is helpful or well-written, please give me a good rating (down below)! Thanks for your support! *^__^)

Fantastic animation here, as is to be expected from anything with the words "Sailor Moon SuperS" in the title. SuperS was already leaps and bounds ahead of the previous seasons of SM, and the movie goes beyond that with some great stuff.

About as much as you'd normally expect out of Sailor Moon. Usually I give Sailor Moon, whether movies or TV seasons, good scores for plot because of the characters and not because of the story itself, and the same thing is true here.
The basic plot is basically the same as every other SM plot: Evil character needs energy from many, many people in order to achieve some ultimate evil goal involving destroying the world.
However, what makes the plot here and in all of the SM universe is always the wonderful characters, and this is no exception.
The piper-type character who Chibi-Usa makes friends with is especially a welcome addition because of his in-between role, where he's with the bad guys, but he doesn't agree with what they're doing.
And the shining moment here is definitely the last scene with Sailor Moon holding Chibi-Moon, completely determined to protect her...
That's probably the single most brutal scene you'll ever see out of SM outside of actual deaths, and it's a very strong scene to watch. In honesty, it made the movie for me.

Probably the funniest thing about this movie was that the enemy was bringing candy wrappers to life for underlings and Sailor Moon actually ran despite the fact that she could apparently take a sick amount of hits from the big bad guy at the end.
But with that ridiculous bit aside, this movie suffers like the other two in that it really doesn't have much in the way of comedy except for things that probably aren't supposed to be funny.
For example, when the Sailor Senshi are put under a spell to think they're kids, it's funny in its own way for the short time it lasts, but funny in an "Awww, how cute" sense.
Still, it's better than what the other two movies pulled off.

Just like all other SM shows, we've got solid stuff here that works for the mood, but isn't really outstanding in its own right. I usually give SM shows a 9 in the soundtrack, but simply put, I felt I had to knock off a point for the simple fact that I had to listen to Sanji no Yosei for longer than 30 seconds. In fact, probably about two minutes more.

Sailor Moon is always one of my favorite shows, but I prefer the TV anime to the movies. Movies like this show why:
The TV show usually turns what could probably be a 120-minute storyline into about 500 minutes of show, which means lots of humorous filler episodes and character development, whereas the movie tries to condense what would have been a 120-minute storyline in the show into a 60-minute movie, which means virtually no time for the everyday "around-town" activity that makes SM as great as it is, at least as far as I'm concerned.
Still, being "almost as good as SM" is quite a compliment, and this is a great movie... I feel that it could have been longer, but then again, I say that about all good anime.
