"When i originally saw these episodes i thought this would be the end of the 3rd season S saga. But turns out there were still a few episodes left. In this volume we find out that Serena is not the Holy Messiah that will save the world from destruction as she is unable to sustain the power of the Holy Grail 100% when she comes into contact with it. The identities of the outer scouts are revealed for Uranus and Neptune and a secret scout appears that made an appearance back in season 2 which is Pluto. The identities of the holders to the Talisman are revealed. In this volume it's also revealed that there is a 9th sailor scout. But Sailor Saturn doesn't appear till the end of the 3rd season. Overall this is a great series and compared to some of the anime titles released today this series is 100 times better then what we currently see in the anime realm. Of course season 3 is my favorite season out of all 5 season because the story was amazing and it just kept you hooked. I do like that the 3rd & 4th seasons of Sailor Moon stuck really close to the Japanese scripts and only certain wording was changed. That is a great thing that the American version was kept so close to the original. One thing that made this series stand out was the English dubbed version which was having fun with the script, things were changed around, and it also had a lot of comedy and humor involved with the lines that were being said from the cast. That isn't so relevant in season 3 & 4 as they kept pretty close to the original script. So the lack of 5 stars is from the fact that the American version lacked a bit of creativity and originality that was there for the first 2 seasons. Also of course i was so disappointed that the original voice cast for Serena did not return for the dubbing of Serena. The new voice actress for Serena is down right awful. Amy & Venus is also changed. Sailor Pluto's dubbing was a bit annoying at times as well. I also missed the American music. The music was not changed for this release and so the music actually sounds very low at certain times because of the English dubbing that takes precedence. The Japanese music worked so well with the Japanese audio but not with the English cast. So i was a bit disappointed there was no change involved in that department. Overall this is my fave season and any fan should pick this up even though the DVDs have been discontinued."
