CoE '18 - 10/20/18 (Grape/Suzuran/Housenka)
CAREER OF EVIL '18 - YOUMA-CON
YOUMA #21, 22 & 23 (EPISODE 024): GRAPE, SUZURAN & HOUSENKA

Appearances: The plant ninjas share a similarity in their appearance, wearing leotards and face-masks while with pointy ears, showing them of the same race.  Grape is a short-haired blonde with her left hand made up of a huge collection of grape vines, some of which she uses as a claw to attack.  Suzuran, named after the plant "balsam", wears a plant-like two-piece with long hair and looks the most humanoid.  Housenka, named after the "lily of the valley", has purple hair with red highlights as one huge bang.
Scheme: Use Naru Osaka as a hostage to assassinate Nephlite and take his Dark Crystal for Zoisite's usage.
Abilities: The three ninja possess similar ninja powers, such as working in the shadows and flight, but each have one specialty.  Grape's is the offensive usage of sharp vines to attack an opponent, tough enough to pierce the skin.  Suzuran

CAREER OF EVIL '18 - YOUMA-CON
YOUMA #20 (EPISODE 023): YASHA

Appearance: An oni-themed Youma with huge white kabuki-esque hair, green skin and yellow eyes while wearing an ornate kimono.  In masked form, she takes on the form of a maiden in a mask, wearing a white kimono with yellow skirt similar to her true form.
Scheme: Spy on and take down both Sailor Moon and Nephlite for his failure for Zoisite.
Abilities: Her main abilities appear to be physical, using a slap attack against her opponents while disguised; in her true form she appears to have the power to use her horns for combat but they're never seen due to being destroyed rather quickly.
Thoughts: Yasha is the first oni-themed MotW and she does look rather elegant in her appearance...but she doesn't really do much.  Her real means seems to more be Zoisite's spy than any sort of threat to Usagi's group or Nephlite; it would have been interesting to see more with her but there isn't much more one can say..

Appearance: Both twins appear identical despite their separate colors: one is Red and the other Blue.  They both have shirt hair with two pieces (deep red for Castor; Teal for Pollux) and one long boot on their left side; they also wear open skirts and are notable for long tails that must be kept together for them to use their powers.
Scheme: Collection of the energy for Nephlite from the body of Hiromi Matsuno, an animator.
Abilities: The twins possess powers similar, if not copying, that of respective Sailor Senshi: Castor can use Fire Soul like Sailor Mars; Pollux can use Sabaon Spray like Sailor Mercury; but only when working together and with united tails.

YOUMA #17 (EPISODE 019): REGULUS

Appearance: Regulus is a blue lion with a pink main and red eyes.
Scheme: Defend Nephlite from Sailor Moon's attacks as he tries to absorb the energy of Naru Osaka.
Abilities: Regulus possesses the power of a lion; it's strength, animal instinct and sharp teeth and claws.
Thoughts: I'm sort of cheating regarding Regulus considering the others I don't want to do...because Regulus is sort of a Youma...but not.  The weird thing about it is that Nephlite just creates the creature from a constellation to protect him from attack as he tries to get away or absorb Naru's energy, and then pulls him back when he's done with him never to be used again.  I sort of wonder then: if Nephlite can take a lion constellation (presumably Leo) and turn it into a Youma...then could he do the same with any other constellation?  The strange thing is that the next Youma he creates are obviously based on Gemini, the Twi

YOUMA #16 (EPISODE 018): JUMEAU

Appearance: Jumeau is supposed to be a naked doll, but is closer to a wooden artist model with stylish green hair; most notable is her lack of joints, with her body parts floating and under her control.
Scheme: Collection of the energy for Nephlite from the body of Mika Kayama, a young doll maker.
Abilities: Her main ability is limb control: any of the detachable limbs she controls can be fired at will by her through telekenisis.  She also can control any dolls created by her vessel Mika, turning them into small demonic servants.
Thoughts: I sort of wonder why Nephlite created so many overpowered Youma during his period as leader, with this one being another of the sort and even more ridiculous due to how it's weakness is utilized and what she can do.  One thing I notice that probably adds to how ridiculous Jumeau is involves her limbs; she not only can telekinetically control them but appears to jus

Appearance: A lavendar Youma with teal hair and one long strand over side of her head; with a red stripe over her right eye; her shoulders are massive and protrude outwards like an extra joint within her arms.  She wears a black swimsuit and a violet sweater with one exposed shoulder, similar to the heroine from Flashdance.
Scheme: Collection of the energy for Nephlite from the body of Kijin Shinokawa, a photographer.
Abilities: Her only main ability is a laser fired from her, either a lens in camera form or from an eye on her right palm in Youma form.  Anyone hit by the laser becomes trapped in a photograph that she creates, inescapable unless she is defeated.
Thoughts: Cameran is a supremely simple Youma; her only power and her only ability is simply "a laser to turn things into photographs.  However because it is such an overpowered ability, it ends up making her one of the tougher opponent

Appearance: An orange-skinned, violet-haired spider female with actual spider attributes, including four extra "legs" to lead to an arachnid 8 and a massive abdomen.
Scheme: Collection of the energy for Nephlite from the body of Higure Akiyama, a sewing teacher at Juuban Middle.
Abilities: Her main abilities are spider-based as her appearance: she can walk speedily on her legs and emit a powerful silky thread that unfortunately is quite flammable.  She also possesses strange abilities while possessing Higure, giving her the power to seduce males through increase attractiveness and absorb energy from those around her.
Thoughts: While I think that Petasos in the previous episode is rather overrated in her power and potential, Widow on the other hand I consider supremely underrated.  While Widow herself is rather just "cute" as a spider, I do like how her possession of Higure transforms her from a meek,

Appearance: A violet skin Youma with the appearance of a wild-woman, with long fluffy green hair, leaf wrists and a yellow outfit/armor used as a corset-style top while wearing green leggings similar to spandex.
Scheme: Collection of the energy for Nephlite from the body of a park manager.
Abilities: Petasos has control of both flora and fauna combined in her abilities: she can control animals within a range of her to attack those surrounding her, usually park creatures such as butterflies, birds ands squirrels.  The flora side are her own abilities, including turning her hair into vines that can constrict and opponent and likewise with special "hand flowers" from the flower wrists.

Appearance: A white-skinned, flat-topped Youma with black "eyeshadow" surrounding her eyes and a black outfit with massive red pointy shoulderpads.
Scheme: Collection of the energy for Nephlite from the body of Rui Saionji, a skilled tennis player.
Abilities: Tesuni has the ability to create a racquet made of pure energy; this energy racquet can volley powerful tennis balls that can be used either as projectiles or to transform an opponent hit by one...into a literal tennis ball.
Thoughts: After Murid, Tesuni is one of those Youma that really sort of introduced me to the potential of MotW in this franchise (the funny thing: after seeing the Murid episode, I didn't start taping/watching Sailor Moon more regularly until this episode, thus I missed Thetis and the last battle with Jedite until a following run).  She sort of gives off this "demonic Ziggy Stardust"/Gozer look with the flat-top haircut and the w

The Freaks' Encounter
She never really considered herself that much of a looker; her skin was too dark and pimply, her nose was too big, her teeth had metal braces over them and her glasses just looked rather huge as if they covered most of her face.  Her bust was a nice D but not really that impressive because of the gut that she had and the lovehandles that made her appear more pear-shaped; with wide hips and a soft backside.   Sure she loved poetry and was studying the classics in university, but that was merely the beauty someone else created and not someone like her.  She wasn't really a freak but she considered herself just rather plain and not that interesting to look at.
It was through a dating site that she ended up meeting Robbie; he was several years her senior having graduated from university.  He too had been an English major, but had taken about a year or so off in order to find himself.  The two of them weren't members of the site but were able to communicate with one

Appearance: When in battle mode, Thetis apears as a white, faceless Youma with red eyes, purple gloves, a crescent headress and a blue spandex body suit.  She also is notable for her beautiful long-haired humanoid form, generally in a one-piece dress.
Scheme: Collecting Energy for Jedite by trapping an entire boat (a salvaged derelict) filled with couples in love to gather their love energy for themselves.
Abilities: Thetis' abilities are associated with water, but the strange thing is that her power is generally best used around water since she can't seem to summon water herself.  On the other hand, Thetis can create water clone servants, erupt massive geysers she can manipulate around a major body of water, and even turn a derelect ship into a working cruise vessel for the length of her and Jedite's entire scheme!

YOUMA #10 (EPISODE 011): MURID

Appearance: Murid is notable for having two appearances: that of the cherubic "Dream Princess" with pink hair, pink dress and blue eyes and a tiara; and that of, what the dub I think appropriately calls, the "Dream Dolly" with a metal ring that reminds me of old royalty, a black and red dress and a more puppet-like appearance.
Scheme: Collecting Energy for Jedite by trapping people that go to the "Dreamland Amusement Park" in a room where their energy is siphoned away by an apple she holds in her hand.
Abilities: Her main power is the distribution of a "dream dust" that gives people hallucenogenic fantasies: once you breathe in the dream dust, you are at Murid's will and whatever she says is happening will happen with nothing you can do to stop it due to being trapped within your own mind.  Likewise while the apple that she uses steals energy for Jedite, it also controls machines such as the animatronic an

Appearance: Kigaan reminds me of a cross between a scarecrow and Sally from "The Nightmare Before Christmas", having a decrepit look but with long red hair and a black dress that reminds me a bit of Morga...in fact she feels a bit like Morga's more attractive sister at times.
Scheme: Collecting Energy for Jedite by transporting people departing the Hikawa Shrine on buses sent into another dimension, trapping them within.
Abilities: Her only known ability is the control of the jailing dimension where the buses go into; likewise she's the driver of the buses and has the ability to make them levitate and fly into her special jailing dimension.
Thoughts: Initially I really wasn't onboard with Kigaan, since she really seemed very much a one-trick pony: she drives you into the dimension and that's it.  But the more I think about it, the more I realize that she's sort of the type of Youma you wouldn't typically s

Appearance: A mature-white-skinned Youma with long violet hair and a red dress; with her most notable attribute being two fang-like stripes that go down her face and cheeks similar to tears.
Scheme: Collecting Energy for Jedite by special clocks that force those who use them to rush, exerting energy to a point where it is collected as it is wasted.
Abilities: Ramua's abilities are associated with a grandfather clock she protects within the store she and Jedite set their scheme up in; through the clock, she can use the remote clocks sold to speed up people in order to collect energy; she also controls a temporal dimension that manipulates age, has a beam that can slow time down, and has a schythe as a physical weapon.
Thoughts: What a waste of a Youma.  Seriously, having a Youma that controls time at this point in the franchise is a boon and could actually have been enough to deal with the Sailor Senshi supr

Scheme: Collecting Energy for Jedite by absorbing it from genius students at a certain cram school by way of a floppy disk telling them to submit to the Dark Kingdom's will.
Abilities: Aside energy collection, her abilities are two.  One involves being punished for answering a trivia question incorrectly, leading to her summoning papers and pencils and stabbing you with them.  The other involves using parts of her body and transforming them into weapons such as an axe.
Thoughts: Garoben is bizarre in that she sort of appeared in the manga...but not.  Her adorable cram school teacher form was in the manga...but the whole carrot-top form with the weird axe hand and test powers were not.  The schme was way more generic involvin

Interests
-I think I'm much better after my little incident from a few days ago.  I shouldn't let the stress of the world and things I can't control get to me.  The reason I do is...just sort of wanting to control things that sometimes are beyond my control.  But hey, all I can do is just whatever I know I can and that's that.  Nothing wrong with a little adventure as long as I don't go off the deep end.

-At this point I'm really starting to think about just going onto a strategy website and using it to cheat my way through the rest of "Breath of the Wild".  It's an engrossing game but it just isn't really something I really say that I "love" like everyone else.  Thing is, I never really was that good at any Zelda game but got this thinking it would be something different...it's different alright but at this point I just want to see it through to the end of the story and that's that. (though I do want to finally start Hyrule Warriors...seriously, slicing thing up with Zelda avatars feels more fun than obtuse puzzles and dealing with weapons that break if you sneeze at them)  

-On the other hand, I took :icongodforoth:'s advice and picked up "The Pirate's Fate"...I haven't done that many Visual Novels (well...one...maybe...) but it was fun and I had a fun campaign through it.  Sort of wish it had more potential for muscle girls but I did like seeing the lizard woman Tam-Tam become extremely hourglass voluptuous...and then screwed that over sadly by turning her into a male Scot bunny.  Sniff...Tam-Tam...you were so beautiful...

Scheme: Use Naru Osaka as a hostage to assassinate Nephlite and take his Dark Crystal for Zoisite's usage.

Abilities: The three ninja possess similar ninja powers, such as working in the shadows and flight, but each have one specialty.  Grape's is the offensive usage of sharp vines to attack an opponent, tough enough to pierce the skin.  Suzuran uses distortion waves that harms the opponent's senses; while Housenka uses explosive bombs that explode upon impact.

Thoughts: And now for a rather underrated trio, especially considering the likes of other ninja Youma like Oniwabandana around.  If Oniwabandana is the ultimate ninja assassin, then these three are basically the ultimate ninja team, the "Team 7" of the Sailor Moon universe and a nice comparison for where the trio stood in their last outing as a trio prior to the Rainbow Crystals and the fourth member joining next episode.  Alone they aren't much, being a combination of sharp weapons, projectiles and distortion abilities, but working together they are rather effective and probably why Zoisite used them to be able to take down Nephlite in the end.  They are rather weak regardless but it's probably another issue of being a trade-off: their teamwork backs each other up but when out in the open, they still have weaknesses that when exposed will take them down with ease.  As said: they're basically a test to show that Usagi, Ami and Rei have come a long way as a team and that they were ready for any new additions or threats.  Plus they helped Zoisite killed Nephlite...which conisdering how some considering MotW useless, is a rather significant success in itself. (oh and in my fanfic tale, I made them, particularly Suzuran, the final villains of season 1...mainly to sort of show how great they are as a team when used to their full potential)

YOUMA #18 & 19 (EPISODE 021): CASTOR & POLLUX


Appearance: Both twins appear identical despite their separate colors: one is Red and the other Blue.  They both have shirt hair with two pieces (deep red for Castor; Teal for Pollux) and one long boot on their left side; they also wear open skirts and are notable for long tails that must be kept together for them to use their powers.

Scheme: Collection of the energy for Nephlite from the body of Hiromi Matsuno, an animator.

Abilities: The twins possess powers similar, if not copying, that of respective Sailor Senshi: Castor can use Fire Soul like Sailor Mars; Pollux can use Sabaon Spray like Sailor Mercury; but only when working together and with united tails.

Thoughts: The first thought I have regarding these two is simply...how do they know the Sailor Senshi's moves?  How do they know about Fire Soul and Sabaon Spray; and are there two more that can use Supreme Thunder and Crescent Beam as another set of twins? (probably not but it does make one think)  With that said, the two seem to possess both the strength and weakness of being twins; when working together they're rather dynamic and tough to beat; but the moment they start arguing and break up from their combo, then they fall apart rather easily.  I am sort of torn about the "tail linkage" being the only means to use their powers; they don't explain how the tail linkage works and I assume it may have something to do with siphoning one's power for the other to use in combat accordingly.  Obviously if Castor and Pollux could do the powers without the link they would be unstoppable and thus about as close as one could get to something that could even rival the DD Girls; but the link does give them a weakness that the three-Senshi team can take on. And of course there's also the old standby of "we know how to work together...until we don't", thus leading to our teamwork falling apart and our failing: it is funny seeing Castor and Pollux argue but if they realized that their separation of power and disunity leads to weakness, they would probably learn how to work together better to be able to be more successful.  And finally there's this: considering the last Youma prior to the twins was Regulus and the two are named Castor and Pollux...it does make me wonder if/why Nephlite should/shouldn't use full constellation powers more often. (but then again we'd be going away from Sailor Moon and towards Saint Seiya if he did that..)
Admission: with as many problems as SuperS has (and I'm just starting my rewatch of it), the first appearance of the Dead Moon Circus is amazing.  In a very "This is Halloween" sequence, we get some random Lemures that just give off an amazing speech about how oblivious humanity is, and it really works well.

It's too bad they don't matter and are slaughtered by the Sailor Senshi near the end (let alone the Lemures that matter aren't from this group)

Abilities: Regulus possesses the power of a lion; it's strength, animal instinct and sharp teeth and claws.

Thoughts: I'm sort of cheating regarding Regulus considering the others I don't want to do...because Regulus is sort of a Youma...but not.  The weird thing about it is that Nephlite just creates the creature from a constellation to protect him from attack as he tries to get away or absorb Naru's energy, and then pulls him back when he's done with him never to be used again.  I sort of wonder then: if Nephlite can take a lion constellation (presumably Leo) and turn it into a Youma...then could he do the same with any other constellation?  The strange thing is that the next Youma he creates are obviously based on Gemini, the Twins; was Gemini the basis for its creation just as Leo may have been for Regulus?  And what of the Youma he created prior...well OK, I can't see it with the likes of Tesuni or Cameran, but Nephlite literally pulling a constellation from the sky and making it into a warrior to fight for him even briefly feels a bit like a game-changer.  Obviously he doesn't use this before or again despite Nephlite's connection to the stars, but it does open new doors.

M. Bison and his design were inspired by Washizaki (鷲崎? "Eagle Cape"), a villain from the manga and anime Riki-Oh; and Yasunori Kato (加藤保憲?), the antagonist from the fantasy film, Tokyo: The Last Megalopolis (aka Teito Monogatari (帝都物語?)).[6][7][8][9][10][11]
