Given the sheer amount of hilarity Shadowjack produces, singling out the Crowning Moments isn't easy...

Non-Episodic Posts

  • Shadowjack: You realize, of course, that I'm actually leeching the soul energy from everyone in this thread to feed my Dark Master. "Otaku are a powerful source of energy."
  • Shadowjack (regarding the SNES RPG): Because there's nothing that says "Sailor Moon" so much as grinding mobs.

 Usagi: Right, how many is that, Ami? Ami?

Ami: …What? Sorry, I fell asleep.

Usagi: You can cast Bubble Spray in your sleep?

Ami (yawns): Apparently. Where's Rei?

Rei: Walking in circles and casting Fire Soul on automatic.

Ami: Wake me when we reach level 40.

  • ru (about the speeches): for some reason, it always cracks me up when Usagi does a long-ass into <sic>, and then the others just pop up with "likewise!" that, and the fact that i always hear Sailor Moon as "Sailor Mooo"
  • Shadowjack (regarding episode 19): It occurs to me that Nephrite's lucky that happened, though. What if half the class had disobeyed orders and showed up?

 Random Girl 1: I'm Sailor Moon!

Random Girl 2: No, I'm Sailor Moon!

Random Girl 3: I'm Sailor Moon and so's my boyfriend!

  • Shadowjack: "Kenny provided much energy for the Dark Kingdom! And he's a renewable energy source!"
  • JohnBiles, in response to a scene in episode 21:

 Ami: Picard never hit me!

Nephrite: ...

  • Shadowjack's response to a response to episode 21, featuring: "Yowza!"
    • Cruton's response to Shadowjack, featuring: "Beryl, darling, we are going about this invasion all wrong! How <sic> you met the Japanese?"
      • Shadowjack's response to that:

 Luna: Usagi, try the Crescent Wand!

Usagi (picks up Wand and waves it around): Drat. I can't sense anything. Must be interference.

Ami (picks up Ryo and waves him around): How about you, dear?

  • The Fireballed Mage (regarding one of the photos in episode 27): Damn right. That look is the last thing you remember before you wake upon satin sheets, tied spread eagle with a lit cigarette in your mouth, while nearby, a very confused donkey looks at you reproachfully.
  • Just before episode 29, Evil Midnight Lurker misreads the Transformation Sequence counter.
  • Shadowjack: I did know about the Rei-Rei connection, which is why it was a terrible temptation to draw Rei in bandages and blankly staring for those recaps.
  • The Fireballed Mage (regarding a negative opinion of "Ami's First Love"): I will pull myself over broken glass with my lips to fight you over this opinion, good sir.
  • Episode 31 outtake:

 Ami: Are you even sure that's even a real cat?


Makoto: Oh, calm down, we're just joking. Tomato? (offers him one.)

Rhett Butler: (turns blue with rage, launches off like a rocket.)

Ami: ?!

Makoto: What's the matter? (eats tomato.)

Ami: This is getting too strange by far. Where's Usagi?

Makoto: (points.)

Usagi: (flies by, using her pigtails for lift.) Hey, Ami. Want to borrow them? (takes her pigtails off and offers them to Ami.)

 Ami: (wakes up.)


  Ami: I'm trying but she's not making it easy.

  • Peter Svensson: There is a LOT of Sailormoon fanfic. My favorite being the one where Usagi gets stuck in a comma. Well, that's not what the writer meant, but the imagery of Usagi being in a punctuation mark can never escape my mind.
  • Tinkerbell's response to episode 44, mostly because, well...

  No-Brand Hero: Thanks for quoting the entire thing for that. <insert wth-smiley here>

  • Evil Midnight Lurker's response to episode 44.
  • Shadowjack, on desynchronous reincarnation: "Right! Now to find my minions. Oh, damn. He died three hundred years ago, and she won't be born for another two hundred. Um."
  • The conversation about Beryl and rope-climbing.
  • Thread 2, post 522.
  • Evil Midnight Lurker (after S1 epilogue): Tragically, we never see how badly Ami freaks out when she realizes she's been left back...
  • Gargoylewing's Motivational Posters.
  • This post.
  • Tiara del Fuego.
  • Spam-bots.
  • Radio Free Ruritania: Also, I just realised that I have two co-workers with upwards-pointing anime noses. One a short lady with sensible short hair and one a giant with a pony tail and a couple of locks hanging down her cheeks. :eek: Thankfully for the sake of my fragile sanity it is the taller of the two who is called Amy.
  • knightsky confesses as to how s/he finds the thread.
  • The Awkward Zombie digression.
  • Cruton: They fell into a game plan pretty quickly, so I think it's safe to assume A&E has done this whole "planet vampirism" thing before. Which may also be their motivation for acting so picky -- once you spend a few decades killing the Planet of Orange Starfish Who Go Spoo by hand, you'd rather have a bit of luxury in your life.
  • Oh, No-Brand Hero, how we love thee...
    • Oh dear, I love you too!
  • Drunken Makoto and Ami, taking potshots.
    • Phigment (related to above, vaguely): I'm not sure their relationship has reached the "tying each other up" stage.
  • Cruton: Damnit, where's that flow chart--?
  • Jhiday: Megumi Ogata gets yet another cameo, voicing the taller of the two bullies here. Which means that Mie is bullied by Shinji --ing Ikari. Er, yeah. Maybe the smackdown laid by Minako here could explain a lot of his issues...
  • The Fireballed Mage comments on Beware the Nice Ones.
  • Also The Fireballed Mage: With that expression you can't tell if she's being normal Rei and thinking, "......" or else, "For this insult, I will kill you, your family, your pets, and everyone you ever talked to on a Tuesday."
  • Sailor Moon has been subbed in Klingon.
  • Blazing Bat brings us a series of screenshots from episode 55:

  Ami (nonverbal): Oh dear, sweet, merciful gods, my poor, useless shoulder!

  • Shadowjack, on the subject of Makoto's new attack (during "Doomtree" arc):

  I did think of writing in a scene afterwards where she summons the lightning dragon to go for a ride, alá Never Ending Story. But the dialogue would basically have been:


  • From the "Mostly Makoto" sketchdump:

 Evil Midnight Lurker: I am now officially worried about Bailesu-sama. :eek:

Shadowjack: Yeah. :eek:

  Still Shadowjack: Hey, Mr. Biles! You having lag issues, or you just waiting for someone to jestingly tell you you're full of it?

  Still Shadowjack: Because you are! You totally are! As full of it as you like! Okay? :P

  Still Shadowjack: Wow. Hectuple post. Is that a local record? I've only ever doubled.

  • Cruton: I think this was the notion behind the "Princess" homebrew project at work up in TTO. The nWOD magical girl stand-ins could draw splat points by getting involved with people to make their lives better and then using that to power for, well, whatever they felt like, basically. It was pretty much a nicer, fluffier, simpler take on Forsaken. I'm... not sure where the design of the game stands now. Last time I glanced in that thread, there was a running debate about whether or not the Dark Kingdom was a dyson sphere.
  • Shadowjack: It suddenly occurs to me that Luna may have "lost" the wand intentionally.
  • The Dungeon Keeper Ami digression, culminating in:

 Usagi: At last my sweet!

Mamoru: At last! And now—

Naoko Takeuchi, coming off of a harsh break-up: Fuuuuck youuuuuuuuu!!! (blam blam blam blam blam)


 Davies: ... you really must permit me to be cut to pieces on your behalf sometime.

Shadowjack: That is perhaps the most interesting compliment I have ever received.

Series General

Sailor Moon

 Luna: [Extends claws] Now then. Let us get some things perfectly clear about our relationship.


Luna: When I say your job is to fight demons, I expect you to hop to it! And if you don't, it's the CLAW for you!


Usagi: Eep! YES, MISTRESS!

Luna: [purrs] Good. Now let's go save your teacher from herself.

 Beryl: Jadeite, new plan?

Jadeite: I have a magic iguana.

 Shingo: I remember I kicked open the door once because I thought they were killing the cat.

Usagi: [laughing] I was so angry that time.

Anonymous cat, face blurred out: The singing was bad enough, but it was the choreography that killed them.

    • Also Episode 7 (at Naru's house): "A bizarre scene ensues in which Naru secretly invites Umino over to her place and convinces him to dress in drag and play Usagi's part in the act, by implying that this will improve his romantic chances because Usagi is into this sort of thing. I really can't make this any stranger than it already is."
      • Later, at school:

  Naru (blushes): Er… Umino, you don't have to do that off stage.

    • Know what? Just Episode 7.
  • Episode 8: Umino's materialization.
    • Ami's reaction to pre-reveal cram school youma.
    • Usagi: "…This is my life. My cat knows more than I do about everything."
  • Episode 9:

 Mom: …so then I went shopping with Naru and Umino's mothers—

Usagi: Umino has parents?

Mom: I'm as surprised as you are, dear.

 Shadowjack: Hey, Rei, have you ever been mistaken for a man?

Rei: No. ¿Have you?

Luna: [[[Face Palm]]]

    • Followed by the next two segments, one of which contains an instance of actual dialogue.
    • Actually, most of the episode.
  • Episode 11: Everything after "A New Dream."
    • A NEW DREAM: A pleasant field and forest.

 Luna: Be careful, guys! It's another illusion!

Rei: Don't worry, we're alert this time.

Usagi: Yeah, we're not going to fall for any stupid tricks!

[Enter Tuxedo Mask.]

Usagi: See? Obvious trap.

[—riding a horse.]

Rei: …but it might not be.

[—riding a unicorn.]

[Usagi and Rei run off to play with Tuxedo Mask for ever and ever.]

Luna [facepalm.]

 USAGI BREAKS THE SOUND BARRIER getting to the mall.

[…and loses the raffle. Repeatedly.]

Rei [just happens by, and listens to Usagi's explanation.] ¡Ha! ¿You really want this silly prize? I, of course, haven't any such interest in such childish things.

Rei [pushes her way up to the raffle machine.]


Rei [draws.]

Rei wins!

Rei: :D :D :D

Usagi: You are such a hypocrite.

  Ami: I'm sorry, Mars, but I do not want to be covered in flaming jet fuel before I'm eighteen. There's a blast radius on those things, you know.

  • First Recap: (regarding Rei) "Finally, I have been portraying her as Latina for absolutely no good reason at ALL."
  • Episode 14:


The fucking scariest bit of animation in the series to date. All seems to turn blood red, light and shadow twist inward upon each other. Rui screams in pain, her face a contorted mask of pain, her eyes roll up, and she collapses in a twitching heap. The dark energy swirling from her racket begins to coalesce, and then, terrifyingly, assumes the suggestion of a human form… and then abruptly is one.


  • Episode 15: Small running gag with poor Luna being in Usagi's arms during her small fit:

 Luna [is still in Usagi's hands. Flail flail waaaaa-hey.]

And still later...

Luna [is still in Usagi's hands. Flail flail waaaaa-hey I feel sick]

    • Ham!Rei.
    • The entire scene in its gloriousness:

 [Usagi is playing Captain Commando and getting schooled, Ami is backseat driving…]

Ami: Want to play Street Fighter II for a bit?

Usagi: I swear this will be the last quarter I drop on this machine.

[…and Rei is grilling Motoki about Mamoru.]

Motoki: …and he lives by himself in a fancy loft apartment because he's the only son of a rich family. Can I get up now?

Rei [stands on a chair.] By Crom, I vow that I, Rei, WILL take this– ¿what's his name?

Motoki: Mamoru Chiba.

Rei: ¡–Mamoru Chiba on a date! And oh such a date it will be. A date to grind all other dates into the dust. Why, I myself marvel at the sheer perfectitude of th–

Rei [discovers that the chair had a loose leg.]

Ami: What was that crash?

Usagi: Me dying. Okay, last one, I swear.

Rei: ¡My spine!

    • Ami: My friend Mister Gardener told me never to come to the park again or the squirrels would get me – no, seriously! – because 'humans are not worthy of the boons that nature provides.' I'm a little… disturbed.

 A few moments later...

Corporate Flack: And see if you can do something about those carnivorous butterflies. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to throw this cigarette butt on the grass.

[Squirrels kill the Corporate Flack.]

[Cue shocked Ami and Luna]

    • The result of Rei entering the fray.

 Enter Rei!


<< Petasos Rope is destroyed! Ami is freed! >>

<< Ami is immune to fire. >>

<< Hand Flower is destroyed! Usagi is freed!>>

<< Usagi is now on fire. >>

Usagi [stop, drop, and roll.] Dammit, Mars!

  • Episode 16: the scene at the temple
    • Ami and Luna arrives at the temple only to see Grandpa chasing Rei ('Grandpa displays a remarkable aptitude for catching teenage girls'); upon catching her, he retrieved the rental wedding kimono Rei had tried to 'borrow' and this scene ensures:

 Grandpa: You're not entering that shameless contest at the competition's secular wedding chapel, are you?

Rei: …No, no, of course not.

Grandpa: You're not eloping?! With this girl?!

Rei: ¿What? No. Hell, no.

Grandpa: Well, good. [changes gears.] Then she might be available…? [winks]


Rei [smites Grandpa.]

  • Episode 17: "And how you doin'? ;)"
    • Usagi: Wait, where was I hiding the brooch in this swimsuit?
  • Episode 19: Naru's got it really hard for Nephrite.
    • Which, of course, baffles Nephrite.

 LATE, LATE THAT NIGHT: The Shinjuku stores are starting to close.

But one store suddenly opens.

Naru [walks in.] Hello?

Tuxedo Nephrite [dramatically.] HELLO!

Naru [jumps for glee.] ZOMG it is you it is you! Masato Sanjoin is Tuxedo Mask!

Nephrite: ?!?!?!

Nephrite: How'd you know it was me?

Naru: …Your voice? Your stance? Your beautiful flowing red hair? The fact that the mask doesn't really hide your lovely face all that much?

Nephrite: Obviously you're Sailor Moon in disguise! No one else could be so perceptive!

Nephrite [casts spell.] REVEAL YOURSELF, SAILOR MOON!

Nothing happens.

 Nephrite: ?!

Naru: …Do you… want me to be Sailor Moon for you?

  • Episode 20: Ami, Rei, and Luna gangs up on Usagi.

 Rei [throws the ball at Usagi]

Usagi [falls down.] OW!

Ami [throws the ball at Usagi]

Usagi [falls down.] OW!

Luna [throws the ball at Usagi.]

Usagi [falls down.] OW!

Usagi: When did it become Pummel Usagi Week?

    • Ami: It's pronounced 'Shining', dear. You know, you remind me of how I was not so long ago, because you're all sad and by yourself. The best thing to do… well, okay, a good thing to do would be to become friends with Usagi. She'll cheer you right up! Or drive you slowly mad. But it's a fun ride, either way.
  • Episode 21:
    • AC Kazuko: …If you're practicing the facial expressions for the villain, you've got it down pat.

  • Episode 22: "You have been waiting, dying for the justification to say those words, haven't you?"
    • Also: "Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwww…"
  • Episode 23: Regarding the MacGuffin

  Shadowjack as Narrator: I suppose this defenestrates the "Naru's Mom is actually Queen Beryl" theory, since why would Queen Beryl send people looking for something she already knew she had?

  Shadowjack as Narrator: Unless she was just being a dick.

  Shadowjack as Narrator: Which is a strong possibility.

Luna /reads that again. "Trips over a what?"

Usagi /turns to Bandana. "Okay, shoot."

Bandana: "Banban banban banban banban banban. Banban banban banban banban banban banban banban? Banban banban. Banban banban banban?"

    • Ami visiting Usagi while she's standing in the hall:

 Ms. Haruna: "Miss Mizuno, you are certain to come to a bad end if you become involved with Miss Tsukino."

Ms. Haruna: "'ACCIDENTALLY'?"

Usagi: "You know I'm clumsy!"

Ms. Haruna /explodes.

Ami: "…I don't recognize half of those words she's using."

Usagi: "See? Hanging out with me is educational."

    • One potential problem of having a long gap between battles against evil:

Usagi: You mean I'm being hunted by the Mary Kay Commandos? That's all I need.

 Makoto: Look, Ami's over there! She's playing now! She's very good. Think she'll win? It'd be neat if she won!

Minako: (shakes head and smiles.) Yes, dear, yes it would.

 Ami: Wand produces an infinite amount of energy; Rubeus reverses the flow; wand absorbs an infinite amount of energy. And thus is conservation of energy maintained. Mathematically it's all quite simple. Too bad it's going to kill us all, Stephen would love to get close observations on this.

Makoto: ... How do you mean, Ami?

Ami: I don't know, like adultery or something. A shameful secret from society. Not something you'd see openly.

Minako: Dude, that's whack.

Usagi: Yeah, what kind of messed-up world would that be?

Makoto: You've been reading too much sci-fi.

Ami: Eh, it was just an odd thought. Now eat your burgers. They're good for you.

  • Episode 73: The aftermath of the Sailors trying to talk Chibi-Usa out of stealing Sailor Moon's brooch and the Silver Crystal

Achiral: "You've probably never experienced anything as big as this."

Achiral: "I know a few tricks that may surprise you."

Minako: "Oh, we like surprises—"


  • Episode 85: Mamoru's reaction to seeing Chibi-Usa as Black Lady

 Mamoru: "I don't believe it! She's become a moody teenager!"

Black Lady: "…I'm… I'm totally twenty-one!"

Usagi: "Moody teenager? What makes you so sure, Tux?"


Mamoru /hair long, ratty black T-shirt. "You can't keep me from going out tonight! The Cure is, like, my life!"


Mamoru: "Just a hunch."

    • Followed shortly thereafter by Usagi's reaction

 Usagi: "Young lady, you are not going out like that! You look like a hussy! You go back to your room and put some decent clothes on right now, or I'll have your father talk to you!"

    • As well as the denouement

 Mamoru: "Are you okay, love?"

Usagi: "I'm not sure. I jumped straight from single motherhood to my kids wanting to kill me. At this rate, I'll be suffering menopause by next summer."

Side Stories

  Ami: ... It's for school?

    • Taxes are due today:

 Mr. Tsukino: I have no choice. Only one thing to do.

Luna: File for an extension?

Usagi: Oh noooo...

Mr. Tsukino (grabs keys): MOTOR POWER, GEAR UP!!!

 Usagi: "Side Story?"

Ami: It means that this episode is non-canonical.

Minako: If that means anything.

Makoto: So nothing we do in this one has any impact upon the real storyline?

Ami: Exactly.


Rei: (kills Usagi.)

Rei: (makes out with Minako.)

Rei: (steals Makoto's wallet.)

Rei: (runs away, giggling.)

Ami: …That was unexpected.

Minako: (gasp!) But not entirely unpleasant!

Makoto: Speak for yourself.

Usagi: (stinks up the room a bit.)

    • Usagi's sleepwalking, Rei made a couple attempts to wake her (they fail). Then this happens:

 Ami: Mako, wake her up your way.

Makoto: Right! …Which way's my way?

Ami: Pick her up and dunk her head in the water fountain until she reacts.

Makoto: …My way's not very sporting. (picks up Usagi and dunks her head in the water fountain.)

    • After an attempt to rouse Usagi from romantic daydreams goes... poorly:

 Artemis: I'm not sure that was the best tack to take with Miss Tsukino. She tends to repress bad memories.

Luna: Like homework.

Artemis: And chores, yes. So you can see that the fall of an entire world kind of goes off the scale.

  • Legend of the Dark Kingdom's Resurrection, Part 2: In this part, Minako's caught ogling a boy, the rest of the team... persuade... her to ask him out, they all (sans Usagi, something about "sick voyeuristic tendencies") get caught spying, boy calls out his buddies (also hiding in the bushes), and... interesting... flirtations ensue:

 Student A: ¡I am Student A! (approaches Rei) ¡YOU! You are like the flame. ¡Student A like you very much! ¡Passion fruits!

Rei: …Passion fruits?

Student A: (sexily.) ¡Mangos! ¡Papayas! ¡You ignite an entire fruit salad of desire in my heart!"

Rei: …What the hell. Talk fruity to me some more, you Latin hunk.

 Student B: I have a strong psychological attraction to intellectual women, due to various complex personal insecurities. I'd do anything within reason, and some things beyond reason, for such a girl.

Ami: I'm told my IQ is over 300.

Student B: (swoons)

 Student C: I like a strong woman.

Makoto: Well, that's nice, but I'm afraid you just don't push my buttons.

Student C: (in His voice.) I can also do impressions.


    • Shortly followed by:

 Saito: Hey, gang, let's check out the astrology booth!

Ami: (throws horns) Woooo! Astrology! Yeah!

 Queen Beryl: Bait, nothin'. Once we use him to extort the Silver Crystal out of the Sailors—I'm a-gonna marry that wonderful man! BWAHAHAHAHA!


Zoisite: I wanna be an usher! Or a flower girl, I'm not picky.

Sailor V

  • Chapter 1-1: Sapphic death zeppelin.
    • Takeuchi understands cats.
    • "Just open it up. Open it. OPEN THE COMPACT."
  • Chapter 1-2: "…Well, for starters, the uniform is so uncool."
    • And let's just think about that here: Artemis arranged for the development of an entire arcade game prototype, and associated advertising copy, solely for the purpose of a single training lesson for Minako. This boy's got a blank check. "Okay, Minako, for today's survival training, we've rented Okinawa. Yes, the whole island. Now pay attention, damn it!"
  • Chapter 1-3: So, uh, you'll only kill some of them, then? I suppose I should be glad at her restraint. :D
    • "This definitely rates about a 9.0 on my weird-shit-o-meter."
