I go with the theory that Luna rigged those games to drop out the pens, that that’s why they’re magical items and why it perfectly matches their colors. I’m pretty sure that A LOT of the game arcade stuff was rigged by Luna. IF THEY CAN PUT A BASE UNDER THE CROWN ARCADE, THEY CAN RIG A GAME’S PRIZES.
And I love that Usagi’s only jealous when Ami gets a pretty pen as a prize, that she wants one, too. It’s adorable and I’m so glad they kept her beating on the machine until it gave her one!
But the thing I love most of all. The thing I love most in the world.
Is that Luna put that second pen in there. You know why? Not because Usagi was good enough to get the pen herself, because Luna knows she stinks at the game. But because Luna knew that Ami was a genius and good with computers/hand-eye coordinated skills, and she knew that Ami would get her blue pen and then KNEW THAT USAGI WOULD THROW A TANTRUM TO GET ONE, TOO.
SO SHE PUT A PEN IN THERE FOR USAGI, TOO.
Fucking bless that talking cat, her life is so fucking hard sometimes, I bet.
Very sweet scene and awesome commentary.
