    This episode I will say was the first blow in heavy tragedy delivered to all Anime and Sailor Moon fans male and female alike, everyone was just heartbroken over it. Even though most of us would probably of predictably guessed that things will turn out alright in the end, I and a lot of people didn't feel reasured of that after what I saw it felt very far away, because the whole episode wasn't just an episode it was an experence that just tears your heartstrings. I'll admit this is a hard episode to watch but I watch it because of how emotionally powerful it truely is. And I might be putting things on a bit thick but I'll admit not just did I feel sad but also a sense of powerlessness, like why couldn't I of done something, why couldn't I have been there to help them. That's one of the things that makes this episode a bit of a devestating experence, because theres nothing you can do.

    I'll make something clear before I go on, sometimes I always get a little emotional over a character or characters that just die. Whether it is animated or a live action character, superhero or mortal it doesn't matter. I guess that is because of how much we truely know them which makes us really invest a lot of emotion in them. When we see them long enough we actually care about whether they live or die, but at times take for granted they'll get out the next sittuation with no problem. But even the world of fiction has a way of pulling the rug from under us, and when the least expected thing happens we then realize how much those chracters/character ment to us but most of all see how truely human they are.

    And that is exactly what we see here, each of those characters Ami, Makoto, Minako, and Rei we've all known very well. We liked/loved them not just because of their powers but because they were all human beings. When I saw each and everyone of them one by one die, I saw it but I just couldn't believe it, I mean how the hell can it just happen. This whole thing was approached with a somber suttlety from the somber music or lack of in some places, it just had that rather quiet feeling. The sound effects of their high pitched screams, really gave that feeling on how truely painful what their all going through, I could almost feel it. But the thing that got to me the most that did it was seeing each one say their last words before dying (which of course was in the form of an image of themselves and then a fade out), the words of Makoto and Rei got to me the most because both of them as well as Ami and Mina all had plans on what they would do afterwards may'be even the rest of their lives and now it's never going to happen. But I understood why they all fought and sacrificed themselves and I admired and honnored them for it.

    I'll admit after my favorate chracter Rei who was the last in the battle to fight to her last breath and seeing the image of all the Sailors as spiritual presenses, I actually cried. No one ever knows why anyone acts heroic, why they continue to play the role, and why they do what they do. It's usually because they fight and defend not for country or even humanity as a whole but something much more, usually it's love, love of a friend, love of family, love of a significant other, or just a portion of what you hold that represents good. And that is exactly what all of them have done. This doesn't just make them heroes but beautiful and wonderful human beings, which is why they will never die.moreless
  • Until recently TV shows (and more importantly anime) have never actually stroke me emotionally. However, this has started to happen a lot lately, more often in Sailor Moon then any other. And this episode is deffinately no exception.moreless

    It was cetainly saddening seeing the Sailors go done one by one. Over the series I'd really got to like them, before this I've liked anime characters but I don't think I've never really cared about what happened to them, maybe I did I'm not sure. As the series has progressed I've watched what's happening very often in shock as I couldn't believe what was happening sometimes. I really don't think I have a definate favourite of the 5 sailors (all I know is that it isn't Usagi!) and so I was watching my favourite characters go down in four heroic deaths one by one. Roll on the next episode...moreless
  • The best example of how a show that looks \\\"girly\\\" isn\\\'t all rainbows and lollipops.

    This is, without a doubt, one of Sailor Moon\\\'s saddest episodes. It\\\'s a crime how this episode was treated by DIC Production. If you watch dub ep 40 (Day of Destiny), you\\\'ll notice how inconsistent the episode is. *Spoilers*

    You watch the first scene and see how worried Luna and Artemis are as Usagi has a last dinner with her family. The sailor senshi transform and teleport to D Point. The DD Girls use illusions to trick the senshi. Jupiter is the first to die as her Supreme Thunder backfires. Mercury is being roasted in volcanic heat. Venus at least takes out one DD Girl with her Crescent Beam before her death. Sailor Mars goes down protecting Sailor Moon. Usagi is all alone when the ghosts of the fallen senshi encourage her to go on and defeat the Dark Kingdom.moreless

  • NOTES (4)

    • The title of the English dubbed version of this episode is: Day of Destiny (That episode was combined with Usagi's Everlasting Wish! A New Reincarnation to make one episode.)

    • Each of the four senshi - Jupiter, Mercury, Venus and Mars - are 'killed' in this episode, and each has a small segment of the episode dedicated to herself and her death.

    • Sailor Mercury shows that 'Bubble Spray' has two further usages - 1. To stop barricades of lava in its tracks, and 2. To form a protective barrier around herself.

    • This episode shows the first use of "Sailor Teleport".


    • "The King of Hell will put out your tongue" is a popular Buddhist belief that Yama-sama, the King of Hell, will pull out the tongues of liars.
