Plot

Changes

Changes From the Manga

  • In the manga, the Sailor Starlights were not as hostile towards the Solar System Senshi as they were in the anime.
  • After the senshi identities were revealed the Three Lights continued going to school.
  • Although Seiya and Usagi cared about each other, they weren't as close in the manga as they were in the anime.

Dub Changes

  • At the beginning of the episode, when Usagi is at school upset about Seiya, the original background music is a sad, melancholic song. The Mexican dub changed the song to a more cheerful one. The scene, however, was kept intact.
  • In the Mexican dub, "Towards the Shooting Star" was completely removed. In order to replace it, an instrumental song was played.

Trivia

  • Sailor Mars used Mars Flame Sniper for the last time in the anime.
  • The third and final animation sequence of Star Gentle Uterus was first featured in this episode.
  • When Seiya autographed a board after the radio show ended, his signature was in fact Shiho Niiyama's, Seiya's Japanese voice actress in the anime.
  • FM No. 10 is the same radio station that appeared in episode 3.
