Usagi and Chibiusa were really cute in their yukata. It would have
been a nice treat to see the entire gang dressed up.

The first time I saw this episode, that was a real spit-take moment
for me. There is also a scene with the more subtle, physical humor
that just cracks me up. Earlier, there was a four way conversation
between Mamoru, Usagi, Chibiusa and Princess Lubina. Mamoru promised
to buy Usagi anything she wanted since he would not be able to go to
the fair with her. As Usagi was jumping up and down with glee,
Chibiusa said something to the effect that you should not buy a child
everything she wanted. Mamoru thought that was a very wise saying and
you could see that Usagi was fuming. The scene cut to Mamoru walking
away and then back to a very thoughtful looking Lubina. Off to the
side, you see Usagi and Chibiusa wrestling in a face-stretching
contest as a result of Chibiusa's comments. That little off-centered
scene makes me smile every time I see it.
I suppose the lesson for today would be how love of country can
supersede the other forms of love. But such a love does not come
without great personal sacrifice. You must give up your own love and
desires for those of your countrymen. Not an easy thing to be sure.
The dub was OK, except that they made Princess Lubina into Duchess
Rubina. Also, where in the original the balloon vendor was encouraging
the boy to continue his tantrum, in the dub the vendor was attempting
the exact opposite, to discourage the boy.
