IMDbTV Pick: Showtime's "Penny Dreadful"

The subtle trick Showtime's "Penny Dreadful is that it is far less about the blood, gore and the specter of gruesome death than the sharp pain and exhilarating pleasure of living, and the terror of feeling alone even in close company. Read our review in the May Picks section.

Whiney 14-year-old Tsukino Usagi has forgotten about her past as a Moon Princess, and Sailor Moon in this sequel series to "Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon." But the dubious super-heroine is revived when two aliens attack people to steal their energy. The intimate aliens, Ail and Ann, disguise themselves as Junior High Students, and each get jealous at each other for finding interest in Mamoru and Usagi. The other senshi are revived as well, and eventually, this story is wrapped up. The next portion of Sailor Moon R deals with Chiba-Usa, a tiny girl with an uncanny resemblance to Usagi, who is trying to find the ginzuishou (Silver Moon Crystal) so she can go back into the Future Moon to protect her parents from the Black Moon Family, which is trying to seize the ginzuishou so their Black Crystal can be at full power, and open the Gate of Time, allowing them to cloud the world and future with dark power. The Sailor Senshi must protect Chiba Usa from the Black Moon family. Written by Ondre Lombard <>

Ruined by DIC.
7 January 2000 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Really, I personally think that whenever any form of Japanese animation is sold to the American anime companies for the process of dubbing it into english, the whole thing is ruined. The opening theme song (American version) sounds really horrible, making the Japanese version sound ten times better than the english version. Obviously, the Americans are trying to make Sailormoon "American" rather than "Japanese", which entirely ruins the series. Sailormoon R is divided into two plots. The first plot explains what happens to Usagi and the rest of the senshi after they had defeated Queen Beryl during the first season. Consequently, they lose their memories of their past as senshi's, but eventually regain their memories in time to battle new enimies, two aliens who feed on human energy to survive. The second plot is more interesting. Chibi-Usagi is Usagi and Mamoru's future daughter, who has escaped from 30th century "Crystal Tokyo" in order to escape from more powerful enimies, the Dark Moon Family who have also travelled back to the 20th century in order to kill Chibi-Usagi and destroy the "moon crystal" Queen Serenity (Chibi-Usagi's mother) uses to destroy all evil. For Sailormoon fans who can speak and understand German, you're in luck. The German dubbing of the anime is much better than the American dubbing. Unlike the Americans, the Germans respect that Sailormoon is purely Japanese. All of the characters name, scripts and plot have not been changed. Only Usagi's name (changed to "Bunny", probably because Usagi is too hard to pronounce for most of us Westeners) and the language have been changed. Overall, 9 out of 10 for Sailormoon R anime series.
