Moon Podcast Power MAKE UP!! – 05 – Sailor Jupiter Ascending

Desperately Seeking Senpai

April 28, 2015 at 3:59 pm

Your hosts take a brief hiatus from hating on Tuxedo Mask to celebrate the arrival of (most) everyone’s favorite Sailor Guardian while discussing Sailor Moon Crystal #5: “Makoto – Sailor Jupiter”. CC and Ashley discuss the episode’s two main themes:  1: Never trust men and 2: Friendship was senpai all along. Rei throws shade at men, Ami throws shade at ghosts, and Nephrite definitely didn’t just wake up like this. Also: senpais we have loved and lost, Misandry Moon Crystal conspiracy theories, and, finally, thrifty wedding tips for a destination wedding in Hell.
