This page is about
episode 67 of Sailor Moon
"Rubeus Strikes Out"
The second new episode this year
The orginal japanese episode was episode
74) "Go and beat up Rubeus! A Deadly Battle in Space"
This weeks Sailor says was reused from episode 15) "Dangerous Dollies"
"Even the best friends have misunderstanding..." It's about Sammie
having trouble apologising for breaking Mika's doll. Neither Sammie
nor Mika where in this episode. The issue of apologising never even
came up in this episode.
I have noticed something in common about all three sailor says that
have been used this year (This one being the second). None of them include Terri Hawkes as the
voice of Sailor Moon. The come from, in order of this years apearance,
episodes 6, 15 and 2. Terri Hawkes was in 12-13; 16-20; 22-68;
New music was used in this episode. Its a variation of DIC's
canadian music. I personally prefered the original japanese music but
I respect the work they put into redoing the music.
Althought there is new music some of the original sound effects were kept:
- Reenie's growling stomach
- The clock ticking sound when Luna and Artemis were thinking of a plan
- The sound when Sailor Moon looks at the earth from Rubeus' ship
- The sound of Rubeus' power amplifier
At one point when Rubeus is looking in his mirror while talking to
Emerald his arm is all screwed up. It look like the animation cells
weren't well aligned. Naturally this is also in the japanese version.
This episode has the Stargate scene. When Rubeus' ship explodes doesn't
it look like when Ra's ship explodes in Stargate. (In episode 39-"The
Past Returns" aka 44-"Usagi's Awakening a Message from the distant
past" When the moon kingdom is destroyed it looks like the white house
exploding in ID4, also by Roland Emmerick. Could Roland Emmerick be a
Sailor Moon fan?)
There are some slight differences from the original episode:
Reenie told Tuxedo Mask that this scary man snuk up on her. That
In the english version the reporter on TV said that they shouldn't
panic about the UFO. Originally he said that many citizen's were
concerned about possible effects.
When Luna and Artemis are shown dressed up as Reenie they didn't
say "Try your hardest Ruby-doop, your never gonna catch me." They
said "I'm the Rabbit, I'm the Rabbit"
In this episode Serena told Rubeus that it wasn't Reenie but her
cousin Trini (Saber Tooth Tiger). In the original episode Rubeus
refers to Reenie/ChibiUsa as the Rabbit. He doesn't know her as
ChibiUsa (Chibi for small Usa short for Usagi. Her real name
is Tsukino Usagi, like Sailor moon. Usagi means rabbit.) The
original line was "This isn't the Rabbit. It's my cousin ChibiUsa".
When Reenie's crescent moon apears on her forehead Serena screamed
"Reenie" in the english version and this was what led Rubeus to believe
that she was really Reenie. The real reason Rubeus discovered that
it was the Rabbit is because he knows that she does the moonbeam thing.
Reenie never said that her pancakes had to be blueberry.
