In the anime, Minako, because she's a loon. I'm still working through the manga, but thus far it's actually Usagi. Her negative qualities aren't played up so much on the manga, and it makes her a lot more likable. Her relationship with Tuxedo Mask is a lot more interesting in the manga, too.

Favorite character in general is probably English Dub Zoicite though. I know she's a whitewashing of a homosexual man and that's Not Cool and everything, but her performance was just so much fun!

I could never really pick between Mercury, Mars and Jupiter. At the time that it first came out (4th through 5th grade), I had a personality that mixed-and-matched from all three of them, good and bad.

I really like them all and Sailor Moon was a favorite anime of mine, I picked a lot of fights over being told guys couldn't watch it.

I always loved the ballsy monster designs, I mean i had it's share of cheesy but awesome Kamen Rider-eske critters, but you got some really creepy motherfuckers every so often.

I love all of them, really.

I used to rush home from school when I was little to watch it and I had all the dolls and toys that I would play with constantly. It was my first anime and manga.

If I had to pick just one, though, it would probably be Pluto.

I'm actually catching the series for the first time on Toonami Aftermath. I... I like Serena. She's clutzy, ditzy, selfish, whiny, and a complete space cadet, but... there's just some kind of weird charm about all her faults that makes me love to see her succeed.

Second favorite would be Sailor Jupiter as she us straight up kicks ass

I only ever saw the Dic Dub as a kid and barely remember it, thus I most likely have no idea whatsoever what Sailor Moon is actually about. But I remember hating Serena and liking Mars.
>> No. 74664
Jupiter and Mercury are the best sailors. I was never really crazy about the series, but I'd watch it because my sister liked it and because it was good enough to keep my attention between the things I already watched (VR Troopers on UPN and everything on Toonami).

It still astounds me that FUNImation hasn't acquired this series at all. I know it was off the market all together for a while, but it's back on the market for the US and it would definitely make money for FUNI. Slap together a TV version to air on Nick or CN, get out some affordable DVD sets, and they could finally put out the Sailor Stars arc. It makes me wonder just what kind of deal Toei wants that isn't looking good to FUNI.

I hated Sailor Moon because it was so formulaic, please tell me there's a version of it that cuts most of the monster of the week elements and condenses it down to stuff like Dragonball Z Kai does. And for that matter, what other magical girl series are there that avoid the whole monster of the week approach (not counting series like Madoka which are just too short to do that)?

There is. It's called "the manga."

The Toku series does it to a certain extent, too, in the sense that it's shorter and...."denser," I guess would be the word?

You can always cut out the nonessential episodes. I think there's more you could probably cut but I haven't watched it in a while so I'm not sure which ones.

Like anon said above the manga handles this much better.
>> No. 74724
Well, less Kai, and more like Brotherhood.
>> No. 74725
In that case, I guess the Toku series is the closest thing to Brotherhood. In that it re-adapted the manga, and veered a little closer to it in some ways. It wasn't a 1:1 adaptation either, though, and added some entirely new elements to the lore, like Dark Mercury and Princess Sailor Moon.

Oh yeah, forgot to add this in the OP:
This place has plenty of SM related stuff, including the toku series. I need to get updated with that as well.

PreCure rule: everyone is gay to each other.
In SM case, everyone BUT Darien and Serena.

Are those custom figures?
>> No. 74808
>In SM case, everyone BUT Darien and Serena.
I don't know. Those two are definitely an item and exclusive and everything, but did you see the googly eyes she was making towards Rei when she first met her?
>> No. 74812

people remember: Japan doesn't interpret homosexuality the same way we do.

We see two women in a "relationship" like status? That's considered "training wheels" for when they eventually have to settle down with a guy. That's literally how Japan sees lesbians and women are expected to "grow out of it".

Could the writer for SM actually want her characters to be lesbians? I dunno. But it actually wouldn't be out of character for them to have distinctively male husbands at the end of the series.

... except for Uranus and Saturn. Those two are a bit too much on the far left.
>> No. 74813
You mean Uranus and Neptune. And yes, those two are definitely lesbians. It's been confirmed by the author.

I'm halfway convinced they were POSITIVE the series was ending after the first season so they decided to leave off on a simple/ambiguous note.

Course the manga DID continue and the anime still had to follow it.
>> No. 74879
I'm pretty sure they had more than that first season's worth of the manga when they finished season one.
>> No. 74881

Then they thought the anime's popularity was fading or something.

Either way they left season 1 off with them all suddenly having amnesia and returning to "normal". I can't see much of a point for doing that unless they thought they couldn't keep going and needed to end it off ambiguously enough for them to imply that the whole thing was at an end.

>Sailor Moon was originally intended by Takeuchi to run only one season, but the first became so popular that Toei asked Takeuchi to keep drawing her manga.
>Because the production of both manga and anime occurred at the same time, Sailor Moon R begins with a 13-episode sub-arc that does not appear in the manga, created to give Takeuchi time to catch up.

Anyway, maybe it's just me but I cannot watch the dub. I watched it as a kid and loved it but after I watched some of the sub I went back and tried to watch it again and everything about it irked me, especially Serena's voice and how mean everyone is to each other (especially Raye who is such a bitch). Maybe I've become one of those crazed pro-sub people or something.

Look, much as I hate the elitism of sub-snobs, there's nothing wrong with thinking that one version of something is better than another on a case-by-case basis. Especially with older works when dubs were legitimately generally of poor quality.

So I've been on a magical girl kick as of late, and decided to start up into this one, along with W.I.T.C.H. How many different manga and seires does this have? Mangareader only has as far as Volume/Chapter 12, (prolly chapters, they seem real short) where they're already fighting Queen...Metalia? Is that what it is? Also, Tuxedo Mask is apparently dead and his body is possessed by the queen. I ask because this is all going at kind of breakneck speed, they only have the first five Sailor Scouts, but it looks like it's all but ready to end.
>> No. 76004
Only one manga, which is called simply Sailor Moon in english, though I think the new re-release puts "Pretty Guardian" at the top in tiny letters. Japanese purists may also label it "Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon" or "Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon."

There were somewhere around fifteen volumes of the manga in the original release. I think the latest re-release (both in Japan and in the US) had higher page counts and brought it down to about ten volumes. But the English re-release is only up to like Volume 5 or 6 or so right now.

There were five anime series, but they were basically just different seasons of a single series. The seasons go like this:
1. Sailor Moon
2. Sailor Moon R
3. Sailor Moon S
4. Sailor Moon SuperS
5. Sailor Moon Sailor Stars

All in all the anime is about 200 episodes, as I recall. There are also three anime movies--Sailor Moon R, Sailor Moon S, and Sailor Moon Super S. These are separate stories from the seasons they're named for, and I don't think they're based on stories from the manga. They're pretty good, and I'd personally consider the Super S movie to be better than the Super S season, all told. There was also a Sailor Mercury special that was based on an omake in the manga I think. I haven't seen that one. I don't think any of the other senshi got their own special.

Finally, there was a Tokusatsu series three or four years ago called Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, which is inspired by the same storyline as the first arc of the manga and the first season of the anime, but is probably at least as different from either as the anime adaptation is from the manga.

There are also some musicals called Sera Myuu, but they're little more than fan productions and I don't know that you can even find recordings of them.
>> No. 76020
Hold up there, home slice. I'm pretty sure that the musicals were sanctioned by toei. And La Soldier is the bees knees. If anyone here is interested, you can find some translated on YouTube. More info here:;

Not sure, but I think it's been a bit longer. I remember watching the first episodes in some small convention quite sometime ago. I'd risk saying... six years?
>> No. 76041
They're sanctioned by Toei, but I don't think they're part of any of the other continuities or have any of the staff of any of the official productions. Officially sanctioned fan-productions, basically.

I was just saying "They're there if you're interested and can find them, but don't feel like you're going to be missing out on an important of Sailor Moon if you don't."
