The good: More expressiveness on the faces. Ami's debut! Usagi doing a ton of blushing and thinking "wow, she's cute" over Ami's debut. (And it's gonna get even gayer when Rei shows up, you watch. That was the manga meeting where Usagi literally had hearts in her eyes.) That little flash of the Moon Kingdom palace when Ami's hands brushed Usagi's. More Sailor V references.

Full version of Moon Pride! (Including bits from the other senshi's transformations.)

The bad: The Dark Kingdom scenes being all unsubtle exposition. (This is supposed to be targeted at young-adult women, right? We don't need things spelled out like this? Especially those of us who already know perfectly well who these people are.) Some of the action not nearly action-y enough. (Tuxedo Kamen's dramatic rescue being reduced to a series of slashes across the screen. At first I seriously thought that was the youma's claws tearing up the paper.) And while I didn't mind the CGI in Usagi's transformation, the cheap-looking CGI water in Ami's is awful. My expectations for the rest of them are so lowered now.

Yeah, the CGI water for hers was *really* awful, but I really liked Ami's debut and everything about their interaction. The blushing! The 'she's cute'! The arcade scene! (I loved loved loved the arcade scene.)

I am with you on the action-y bits being insufficiently action-y, but I was totally fine with the lack of teaching-related puns this time around.

I think it's an amazing trainwreck >.>

There's more emoting in this episode, which is good! But there's not a face that stays on-model to be found, which is bad. And some of those faces have their features sliding around, which is even more bad, and then there's some of Luna's body models, owwww ...

That and I'm not thrilled with this take on Ami; between the emphasized sad-sack existence and that she actually just up and gets brainwashed instead of being resistant, it's hardly a great entrance. Blah.

(the jade-green eyes of her brainwashing, and the youma's claws ditto, those were a nice touch.)
