"The Doom Tree Strikes is a terrific DVD for Sailor Moon fans of all ages. Six episodes feature the wicked couple Alan and Ann, who are seeking energy for their beloved Doom Tree, which is also the source of their own lives. Alan and Ann enroll at Serena's school. Despite their mission, Alan immediately fixates on Serena, Ann on Darien. But Darien doesn't return Ann's affections. In fact, he doesn't return Serena's affections either, for Darien has lost his memory of the Sailor Scouts, Tuxedo Mask, and the recent battle with Queen Beryl.
Although Tuxedo Mask is AWOL, the Scouts do have a mysterious ally in the gorgeous, Lawrence-of-Arabia type "Moonlight Knight." Serena immediately thinks the Moonlight Knight is Darien, but Darien says he has no idea who that guy is.
Serena's lovely lavender-haired mother makes a rare and beautiful appearance in the episode "Cherry Blossom Time." Each of the scouts stars in an episode, except Mercury, because Serena is featured in two episodes.
The dubbing is very good. Don't waste time - buy this DVD for your collection."

"When I buy sailor moon DVD's I buy them because they contain the original Japanese Uncut version. This doesn't have that. If you liked the American version and want it on DVD then your wish has been granted because this is it. Personally, I'm disappointed with the fact that all the other series have the original Japanese versions but this one. It makes my collection incomplete. But as I said if you liked the American versions and weren't looking for the Japanese I'd say this product is for you."
