This week on Moon Makeup we give Zoisite the goodbye he deserves! Yes, it’s finally time for our favorite general to kick the bucket, but at least he gets to do it in a big time two-parter (really a three-parter if you count the final episode from last week, as it bleeds right into this one). First it’s episode #34, The Shining Silver Crystal: ...…
