Changes From the Manga

Dub Changes

  • In the Korean dub, Hurdle only appeared in the scene where Sailor Neptune cuts the Daimon's rope, as the other scenes Hurdle was in were cut.
  • At one point in the English dub, Amara says "Riddle me this, Batman..."

First Appearances


  • The Daimon that appeared in the flashback closely resembled the Daimons of the manga.
  • When Sailor Neptune freed the trapped Sailor Senshi from Hurdle's rope, the white part of her right glove disappeared very briefly.
