Trivia

According to an advertising promo, DiC originally planned to make the Sailor Warrior's English names Victoria, Blue, Dana, Sara, and Carrie rather than Serena, Amy, Raye, Lita, and Mina. See more »

Goofs

Many character's names were changed in the dub, yet when porting the series to America, many references to their Japanese names were not removed/edited out/etc. For instance, Unazuki Furuhata is called "Elizabeth" in American versions of the show, yet her doorbell, even in the dub, clearly says "U. FURUHATA." Likewise, Michiru's name is changed to Michelle in the dub, yet at the end of one episode, her journal clearly has "Michiru" written on the cover. See more »

Quotes

Tuxedo Mask: Bullying little kids, how far you go, pal? Are you just a schoolyard bully?
Rubeus: Find out, cape boy!

Crazy Credits

The American opening theme music is the same as the Japanese version song, Miracle Romance, however it has been given English lyrics that are actually about Sailor Moon (as opposed to the generic romantic lyrics of the Japanese version). See more »

Alternate Versions

In "Star Struck, Bad Luck", when the daimon attacks, it pulls apart its robe to reveal the star it uses to steal Heart Crystals is on its chest. We don't actually see its breasts, simply cleavage. It was covered up by zooming in so only the star is visible and cuts to the next scene more quickly. See more »

There's something about Sailor Moon...
28 February 2005 | by IkuharaKunihikoSee all my reviews

"Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon" was a hugely popular anime based on the Manga by Naoko Takeuchi. It's 200 episodes are a hermetic fantasy that many don't like and never will. But I like it and I can't help myself!

I remember how it was the first time I saw it. I was in trans, completely overwhelmed by its magic. I loved all characters, especially the clumsy Minako and Usagi, whom are sometimes almost acting as twins. There was one very funny episode in which Usagi and Makoto were both in love with Motoki but Makoto found out that he already has a girlfriend, Reika. But Usagi didn't know that and started asking Makoto questions: "You look so sad! Do you need an advice in love?"-"Yes."-"Tell me whom have you fallen in love with?"-"...with...Motoki."-"Noooooo!( Scene of Usagi falling into a dark pit)"-"Calm down! I thought you liked Tuxedo Kamen!"-"...well, I like them both!"-"Unfortunately, Motoki already has a girlfriend."-"...He has?! That must be...me!"-"NO!!!!Its Reika!" The thing that everyone is complaining the most are the demons. Many regard them as a completely abstract thing in this other vise realistic drama/comedy about adolescence . But you can also make that complain for "Shin Seiki Evangelion's" angels that Shinji is fighting against. You just have to regard them as a metaphor, maybe as a symbol for Usagi's low self esteem. That's why the more demons she beats, the more mature she gets. Also, they sometimes work like a Greek chorus, progressing the story and changing Usagi from a clumsy child to a grown and mature woman.

--------------------

Some episodes are hilarious. For example, the 5 girls are fighting over who should play Snow White in a stage show. Makoto, whom has the biggest breast, just simply brags with them and says "I should get that role. I have the biggest...talents." In another episode in season 4, Minako is trying to seduce a kindergarten teacher with these words: "Mr. Honyo...How many children would you like to have? I would like 2, but if you want so many to fill a whole soccer team...I wouldn't mind!"

The directors Junichi Sato, Takuya Igarashi and Kunihiko Ikuhara made a wonderful job, especially in the last season 5. There the wonderful pop group Three lights( Taiki, Yaten, Seiya )appears and almost steals the show. I just loved the idea that they were transfered to Usagi's class where all the girls fell in love with them. Even Minako wanted to seduce one of them, Seiya; she pretended that she had something in her eye and asked Seiya if he can bend towards her face, so that looking from the profile it looked as if he was going to kiss her! At the same time Usagi was hiding and ready to make a photo of them and publish a false story in the newspaper that they are a love couple. Also very interesting characters: Michiru and Haruka, whom are lesbians, but that is always only subtle hinted. Haruka looks like lady Oscar from the anime "Versailles No Bara". The story only gets better from season to season, and has a lot of emotions, imagination and humor. For some reason, that mix worked, unlike some other anime like "Wedding Peach" ( 6/10 ), "Card captor Sakura" ( 6/10 )and "Cutey Honey" ( 6/10 ).

An evil alter ego inside me, the one that always found the bad side at everything, waited for one false move in this anime that could cause the whole story to collapse. But that didn't happen. "Sailor Moon" created its very own world, and in it made itself comfortable. It's guilty pleasure and high art in one. Genius.

Grade: 10/10
