Episode 58 - Sailor Moon Super S
It's time for episode 58, which means we're knee-deep in Sailor Moon  Super S! Want bizarre circus performers, crop tops for boys, and sweet  horse loving? Look no further.

Warning: There's a bit of  Freudian analysis in here, which is almost deserving of a warning in  itself. But, more importantly, there's some discussion of genitalia with  regard to some of the imagery of this season—this episode may not be  the best to listen to with children unless you want weird questions  about what penis envy and castration anxiety are.

Mistakes: Missy definitely meant that it was Usagi who was less jealous in the Sailor Moon R movie, but oh well.
