      >> This tale is about how the evil Lady Vadiane intends to trap all the
      >> children of earth in order to tap into their dreams and use the
      >> resulting energy to conquer the world. So what else is new you say?
      >> Not much, but there are some cute subtleties and little delights even
      >> for the most jaded.
      >>
      >> In the opening scene, we hear a captivating little melody played from
      >> a flute as children wake up from their sleep in response to it. As one
      >> of the children awakens, we see in the background a cuckoo clock as it
      >> strikes 3:00. Then the camera zooms in on the little bird as it pops
      >> out to note the hour. The children are enraptured and follow the call
      >> of the flute. While they walk, they sing to the melody which is called
      >> "san ji no yosei" (Three O'Clock Fairy).
      >>
      >> Three O'Clock Fairy? Cuckoo clock? Is there a connection? We shall
      >> see, we shall see.
      >>
      >> The movie titles run and we see the girls learning to bake cookies
      >> from the capable hands of Makoto. While they are so engaged, the
      >> cuckoo clock in the kitchen strikes 3 o'clock and Makoto remarks that
      >> it is the three o'clock fairy. The other girls are intrigued and ask
      >> Makoto to explain. Makoto tells how her mother often baked cookies and
      >> treats in the afternoon. This was because of the fable of the Three
      >> O'Clock Fairy, who would tell mothers everywhere to make sweet snacks
      >> for their children. Makoto, back in her young innocence, did not know
      >> about fairies, so she thought it was the little bird that came out of
      >> the clock.
      >>
      >> Along with the story of the cuckoo, Ami tells of how her mother baked
      >> cookies for her as a child and told her that these cookies would cheer
      >> her up a 100 times over when she was depressed. That gave Chibiusa the
      >> inspiration to claim that _her_ cookies tasted so good, they would
      >> increase your energy and courage a hundred times over as well.
      >>
      >> There must have been something special about that moment as we will
      >> see.
      >>
      >> As the story unfolds, we find out there are four fairies in the employ
      >> of the Lady Vadiane who are gathering the children of the world
      >> through the music of their flutes. But one of them has rebelled and
      >> joins the senshi to defeat the Lady Vadiane.
      >>
      >> About half-way through the story, the three remaining fairies are
      >> defeated. In their defeat, they are transformed back to their true
      >> form, that of a bird. But wait! What is that faint sound in the
      >> background? Did you actually hear the sound of a cuckoo? Was young
      >> Makoto right after all?
      >>
      >> Despite the defeat of the fairies, the evil Lady Vadiane remains. And
      >> what's more, she has trapped Chibiusa in an endless sleep. What will
      >> Sailor Moon do? And where will she ever find the courage and strength
      >> to free her future daughter?
      >>
      >> Thus goes the original Japanese version. However, the dub writers, in
      >> all their ham-handed ignorance or in reverence to the god of political
      >> correctness, have totally destroyed ALL of these subtle little
      >> interconnections.
