Subject: 51 Days of PGSM - Act 25
> Act 25 - So Tuxedo Mask's True Identity was Mamoru Chiba
> Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Kamen continue to stare at each other. Usagi
> realizes that Mamoru must now know her true feelings about him. She
> attempts to leave, but he acknowledges her feelings and says "I
> also..." before stopping himself and quickly leaving himself.
> Hina, in packing up Mamoru's room, comes across Usagi's chocolate and
> handkerchiefs (particularly the heart one). She heads off to the Crown
> to find him and get some answers.
> Usagi ponders Mamoru's last words and wonders if he loves her as she
> does him. She heads off to find him and get some answers as well.
> At Motoki's bidding, Mamoru comes to the Crown and finds Motoki in a
> frightening (and not in a good way) turtle suit complete with plushie
> attachments. Motoki is one sad, sad fellow. However, he does fill us
> in on Mamoru's backstory. It turns out that Hina's father gave Mamoru
> shelter, cared for him and raised him. Mamoru has pledged to take Hina
> in marriage in return. In a moment of rare character, Motoki tells
> Mamoru that he should not marry Hina if he does not love her. Hina
> overhears Motoki's words and runs out of the Crown. Mamoru chases
> after her.
> Kunzite recruits Jadeite to set a trap for the senshi. When Jadeite
> asked why Kunzite didn't ask for Mercury's help instead, Kunzite said
> that Mercury was capricious and comes and goes as she pleases (I was a
> bit tickled with that description). To bait the trap, Jadeite creates
> a youma that starts siphoning energy from the passersby.
> Usagi sees the youma and calls for reinforcements. Rei and Makoto heed
> the call and go to confront Jadeite and Kunzite. Before Usagi can join
> them, she finds herself witnessing an injured Hina asking Mamoru to
> stay with her regardless of his feelings for her and regardless that
> he has never stated that he actually loves her. Mamoru swears that
> Hina is important to him and that he will stay by her side forever or
> until she says otherwise. Mamoru looks up and sees Usagi and calls to
> her by her personal name (not even a '-chan'). Hearing that, Hina
> immediately gets it and understands that it is Usagi that Mamoru
> Usagi runs off to the battle and Mamoru follows her after promising
> Hina that he will return. He tells himself as he dons the mask that
> this will be the last time.
> All four senshi end up locked in battle, trapped in a sealed building,
> against Kunzite, Jadeite, Mercury and the youma. The youma
> single-handedly defeats Venus, Jupiter and finally Mars by freezing
> them solid with ice. Mercury and Kunzite argue over who should be the
> one to finish off Sailor Moon. Kunzite pushes Mercury aside and
> strikes at SM with his sword. Suddenly TK appears out of nowhere and
> throws himself in front of SM to take the blow himself. As she holds
> his head in her lap, he tells SM that he is sorry for not being able
> to return her feelings. His injury appears to be fatal as his hand
> drops lifeless to the floor.
> Once again, SM starts to glow with a golden power that destroys the
> youma and thaws the senshi from their frozen state. The DK minions are
> forced to fall back and shield their eyes. We see a similar image from
> the past as the Princess (Usagi with black hair, the Earth in the sky
> behind them) cries over a prostrate Endymion.
> The crescent moon on Venus's forehead is replaced with a tiara and
> everyone, including us the audience, come to realize that the true
> princess is, and has always been, Sailor Moon. The glow recedes and we
> see that SM has transformed into Princess Serenity.
> In a manner very much like the anime version, Sailor Moon starts to
> cry and a single tear stops, suspended in the air, and creates the
> Silver Crystal. The power from this transformation revives the
> unconscious people outside and even reaches the Dark Kingdom where it
> apparently adds to the power of Metalia. Beryl observes the power of
> the crystal and rejoices.
> The power of the crystal, still floating before Usagi, forces the DK
> minions to retreat. As it continues to glow, Tuxedo Kamen is also
> revived. He looks on Usagi's face and recognizes her as the princess
> from his dreams.
> The crystal disappears as this wonderfully tender background music
> swells up.
> As Venus and then the rest of the senshi kneel before the Princess, I
> almost teared up, it was so moving.
> One tiny quibble. In tribute to the original anime scene, I would have
> loved for this moment to have ended silently. But instead we get the
> DiC version as Usagi says to herself "I am a princess?".
