This is a reshowing of the 1995 movie Sailor Moon Super S: The Movie. The first part is a 16-minute short film about Ami, and her rivalry/crush with a person known only as “Mercurius”. The main film itself is about the sailor guardians rescuing Chibiusa from Badiane, the big bad who is kidnapping the children of the world to power her Black Dream Hole. The guardians must team up to fight off her evil henchman and their bonbon babies in order to save all the children, and there are even a few special appearances that fans of the series will love.
This is part of the Fathom Events series of broadcasts where classic or indie movies or live events are shown at participating movie theaters around the country. It’s significant that Fathom has an entire anime category for events, showing some of the most classic movies that never made it to the big screen in the US, but now can be enjoyed that way.
Growing up in a comic book store was probably not the way to make an already awkward and strange boy very popular, but it did lead to me having a large knowledge of anime and manga, and I have always had a soft spot for Sailor Moon. Sailor Moon Super S was fantastic cheesy 90s nostalgia joyride that I am so happy that I got to share with my 3-year-old daughter. Getting to watch it and see her little face light up, listen to her laugh at all the jokes and hijinks that the characters got into was wonderful. I am happy to have been able to share that part of my childhood with her and seeing that they are bringing back older anime films to movie theaters.
