Review

This musical isn't very good in my opinion. Essentially it's the last three musicals combined in some shape and form, or at least the Eien Densetsu musical and the SuperS musical twisted together. It's extremely confusing and most of it is the same-old, same-old, we've-seen-this-before-in-past-musicals. The Amazon Trio is revived and works under Galaxia and Queen Beryl. King Endymion is brainwashed and made to be Queen Beryl's boy toy, and eventually Tuxedo Kamen has the same thing done to him. The Trio's main role is bringing the Dead Moon Circus around; using that ploy, they capture the Inner Senshi and steal their star seeds. The same songs are used for the villains ("Galaxia Gorgeous"; "Queen of Darkness"; the Trio's intro song; and the Zirconia song is revised as she is not in the musical) so it gets pretty dull after a while. The interesting thing is that the Outer senshi are actually not the "bad guys," the Inners are, even though the Inner Senshi pull a Uranus-and-Neptune-pretending-to-be-evil-under-Galaxia thing. Anyway, there's not much interesting plot to discuss since it just becomes the other musicals anyway with Queen Beryl and Pluto doing their duet; Beryl taking the blow from Endymion and dying; the Trio turning on Galaxia but dying like they did with Zirconia; the Sailor Senshi all dying but being brought back to life by Galaxia who turns good; the Senshi all defeating Chaos. Unlike the other musicals, the Trio come back to life (yay), and everyone's happy again as Tuxedo Kamen, Chibimoon, and King Endymion come back to life.

As for the songs, despite the fact that about seven or more came from other musicals (not including "La Soldier" or "La Moon"), several of the new songs were very good, especially "Everlasting Moonlight," a great song, and the Outer Senshi's "Makin' for the Right." The song the Outers sing with Usagi and Chibimoon is also pretty cool as is Tuxedo Kamen's "Miracle Twister" (which is highly underrated). The new cast is good though since they're all cute. It's really disappointing that they had to act to such a rehashed musical though, they deserved some fresh material (it's the start of a new legend, why the heck isn't it NEW?). The new Sailormoon has a different look and voice from Anza-san, but she's still quite good and gets better during Kaguya. (In Kaguya, she overcomes the shy aspect you might see in Shin Densetsu.) The Shin Densetsu Kourin Video Guide is very interesting too, I'd recommend that over the actual musical. The musical is good to get for a few of the songs and to see the new cast in action, but you're not missing much storywise if you don't see it.
