Animator and musician Laura joins CC and Ashley to talk about Episode 24 of Sailor Moon Crystal: “Attack –Black Lady–.” We delve a little bit more into the secret dystopia that is Crystal Tokyo — is there some form of OSHA that Sailor Pluto can get in touch with? Is Neo Queen Serenity a union buster? Is the royal family in desperate need of some family counseling? (Spoiler alert for that last one: Yes. Yes, they are.) Also in this episode: even more Jupiter Ascending tie-ins, The Bishounen Beauty Myth, and occlumency for Mamoru. Don’t forget to give the gift of slow-and-painful-demise-inducing yaoi hands this holiday season!
