    Revisiting the Tokyopop Manga

    All of the manga translations released in the nineties flipped the artwork (except the Chinese translation). I guess that was just more of an acceptable, standard practice back then? Sorry my comment came off as rude. I didn't mean to attack you specifically or anything, it's just that's a...

    Revisiting the Tokyopop Manga

    The '90s anime is more recognizable than the manga, that's a simple fact. The '90s anime and its derivative works used "Moon Tiara Action," so that phrase became better known than "Moon Frisbee." In the interest of perhaps better aligning that attack with Sailor V's similar "Crescent Boomerang,"...

    Revisiting the Tokyopop Manga

    Wham-O holds the trademark (not copyright, you can't copyright a brand name) on "Frisbee." That means they own the exclusive right to produce flying disc toys using the "Frisbee" name. To claim trademark, you have to demonstrate that you use the name for your products (so you can't just...

    Revisiting the Tokyopop Manga

    That's not how trademark works. At all. Like, at all. Fans really need to stop with this "Moon Frisbee was changed because of trademark infringement" myth because it's patently untrue.

    I know Haruka calls her Muffin-head... We shall see what happens :lol:

    Revisiting the Tokyopop Manga

    (The rest of Act 1...) "Cow-Tails"? "COW-TAILS"??!?! WTF!?!? WHYYYYYY? Why not go with, oh, I don't know, MEATBALL HEAD? I wonder if the translator was completely unfamiliar with the dub and actually turned in a faithful translation that was then just incompetently adapted/localized by an...

    Revisiting the Tokyopop Manga

    My first exposure to the manga was with Tokyopop's English translation back in 1999. I have so many fond memories of visits to Borders to get my hands on every volume, of reading them with my friends at school (and then re-reading and re-re-reading them) and trying to piece things together...

    The Lost Episodes of Sailor Moon

    I hope they do (along with the audio from the kigurumi shows), but I'm not gonna hold my breath.

    The Lost Episodes of Sailor Moon

    *bump* There were a few different video games that contained original animated cut scenes. While these are not full-length episodes per se, they are still pieces of anime content that have essentially been lost apart from existing playthroughs that have been shared on-line. The chances of the...

    The Sailor Moon Potpourri Thread

    Dream and Stars pretty much throw the whole 1,000 year lifespan thing out the window by introducing so many characters who are obviously much, much older than that. Come to think of it... We know Luna and Artemis were put in a state of suspended animation by Queen Serenity, but was that also...

    The Sailor Moon Potpourri Thread

    In the manga, Pluto says that only those of the Silver Millennium can reach the Space-Time Door, which raises the question of why it needs protection, unless there was an evil member of the Moon Kingdom who tried to use it for nefarious purposes, necessitating it be guarded at all times, in...

    The Kodansha TV Picture Books

    Apparently it's to be a waitress? MINAKO AINO'S FASHION SHOW Does my waitress fashion suit me? "Welcome." Just kidding.

    The Kodansha TV Picture Books

    None of their dreams are right, except sort of Chibiusa's.

    Season 4 movies update: Sailor Moon Eternal - Delayed to 2021 (Part 1 on January 8th & Part 2 on February 11th)

    I need to start checking this thread more often it seems. I think the new stills look great, especially Helios and the cats. Hope we get a new trailer next month (if not sooner).
