145 "Prima wo Nerae! Usagi no Ballet"
(Aim for Prima Ballerina! Usagi in the Ballet)
138 "Tutu Treachery" 00-10-19

Usagi and Chibi-Usa have a sudden urge to become ballerinas. They enlist in a local dance studio to learn ballet under the teacher Yamagishi. He is putting on a show named "Jezel", about a girl who loves someone and then dies and comes back as a ghost. A girl named Kiriko wants the part, but when Fish Eye comes along, it seems as if Yamagishi wants to give the part to him. Kiriko is crushed, but with some kind words from Chibi-Usa and Usagi, she decides to go after the part anyway. In the studio, Kiriko walks in on a conversation between Fish Eye and Yamagishi, where Yamagishi explains that he never intended for Fish Eye to get the part, that Kiriko was the only one to get it. Fish Eye is crushed by this and attacks Yamagishi. Sailor Moon and Chibi-Moon appear to help but Fish Eye sends the Lemures, Kurumiwario, to attack. With some aid from Tuxedo Kamen, Sailor Moon defeats the Lemures and saves Yamagishi.

This episode was ok. I think it was written by Lisa Lumby-Richards since they say they are the "Champions of Justice", but it fared ok. The episode did lose enough though for the jokes to lose meaning. Oh well, it could have been worse, it could have been like episode 143.

Another good episode, nice script, nothing to really bitch about. If more episodes done like this come around, I'll be happy.

The script for this episode was ok....I don't want to repeat what I said in my two cents, so I'll just say that it kept the story line intact, but there was a bit to be desired.

Kiriko retains her name.

Yamagishi retains his name.

Kurumiwario retains his name.

In reference to the ballet, Mina says this,

"It sounds phat, Serena"

*gets out the barf bag*
