Well, originally, when I thought of this idea for this music video, it was going to be my tribute to the R season in general. However, it morphed into something entirely different: a tribute to Chibiusa/Black Lady from the R season.
The reason I tacked on the "R season" at the end of that sentence is because I felt that this video clearly stated Chibiusa's character in the second season. She had dilemma's, unresolved guilt, anger, and fear. In S and on, her character changes subtly, back to being a kid. I felt, in R, she was forced to grow up some, try to be older than she was. She also had any number of problems and was hiding from the Black Moon. And not only physically hiding from them, but also emotionally, she was hiding from Usagi and the girls. She was wary of them, unsure, and much more suspicious than any other child her age should have been, after all she had gone through. It's a hefty burden to know that it was inadvertently (she certainly didn't intend it, but it happened) that your mother is trapped in the crystal and you don't even know if she's alive or dead. So she's was a much more complex character, in that way, than the other seasons. In S, she was complex in a different way in that she wanted to be friends with Hotaru, but Hotaru was with the Death Busters...in a manner of speaking. I haven't seen the SuperS season, so I can't comment on that one.
Wow, I talked a lot there....Anyway, I think I've talked too much about this. My point being, before I prattled on and on and got off on a tangent, was that she was different in the R season than in the others and I respected that. She had Black Lady to deal with, her memories, her guilt...I felt bad for her in the R season and I usually barely like her at all. But I did feel bad for her because of what she was trying to accomplish at her age with only herself. She couldn't afford to trust anyone at all. So I'm glad how this tribute worked out to her in the R season because for all the fighting that Usagi and Chibiusa did in the R season, for all her bravery, she was just a scared little girl who just wanted to hide away from her fears.
Anyway, please watch it.
