Episode Summary

EDIT
Wish Upon a Shooting Star! Naru-chan's Pure Love
AIRED:
Nephrite gives up trying to get power from humans and focuses on finding the Silver Crystal. He uses a black crystal to help him identify its location. He thinks that Naru (who is still in love with his human guise) may have the clue. However, when he asks for the Silver Crystal, she brings him a jewel from her mother's store. Sailor Moon busts in on the scene just as Nephrite realizes that maybe Naru's love for him is itself a powerful source of energy. A monster sent from Zoisite, who mistakes Nephrites's locating crystal for the Silver Crystal, also appears. Sailor Moon dispatches it and tries to finish Nephrite as wel... but Naru throws herself over him, and Sailor Moon is forced to stop her attack.moreless

  • What's in the heart.

    The interesting thing about this episode is it's basically a Neferite and Naru centered episode. I love how we see character development in both characters in this episode. From Naru who is now begining to act on her feelings of love that she kept for a long time. Neferite has been my favorate sub villian on first season and the reason for that is he seems a little more emotionally complex. This episode demonstrates that, thoughout his run he's mainly been using Naru, manipulated and manuvering her from her feelings toward his own gains. But now we see he's begin to discover that he actually might have feelings for her, he thinks of her as more than a pawn.



    Even in the interaction scenes we see he actually does enjoy her company, in fact when you think about it she's the only person he's ever really been able to talk to and even get close with, thats got to be telling him something.



    One of the most memorable scenes ever has to be in the final confrontation when Neferite is getting defeated despite everything Naru hear's from Sailor Moon and the Senshi she can't believe it is all true and she still expresses concern and love for Neferite. Then as Sailor Moon throws her tiera to finish Neferite off she then does something rather suppriseing, she jumps in front of it to shield Neferite, I just love how truely brave and strong she expressed herself, and how she is staying true to her feelings no matter what. And of course then she gives a rather deep monalogue that rings true to feelings within anyone for another. Then of course Neferite does something supprising as well she saves Naru life in return by blasting a Yoma that was about to attack her, it's right then and there he discovers his feelings truely go far for Naru.



    They say that most of the time we never chose who we love, it's more like love finds us and usually it's in the most unlikely person. We love them not because of what's on the outside but what's in the heart.moreless
