    Faithful to the manga - what does that mean (to you)?

    If "faithful to the manga" means having the manga animated page by page, with no filler, then it's going to be bad. The manga is rushed, especially the first arc, and I think that adding new stories is a good thing. Crystal attempted to do add more depth to the story by having the senshi have a...

    Should Usagi have forgiven Beryl in the 90's anime? Why didn't she?

    In that case, we can say that Beryl was possessed by Metallia and that Sailor Moon could have healed/saved Beryl with the power of the Silver Crystal.

    Should Usagi have forgiven Beryl in the 90's anime? Why didn't she?

    I think Beryl was simply possessed (by chaos) and could have been healed. As a human being, she simply loved Endymion and was jealous of Serenity.

    The international Sailor Moon dub thread

    I consider myself 100% American, I am an American citizen, but I was born & spent childhood in Brazil. Grew up with Latin American dub of Sailor Moon. Classic (Portuguese), remaining seasons (Spanish).

    The international Sailor Moon dub thread

    United States. But I spent my childhood in Brazil and speak and read Portuguese.

    The international Sailor Moon dub thread

    I wanted to see that scene so badly! I grew up with the Brazilian Portuguese dub (the one made for the first season) and I remember wanting to cry in front of the TV while watching that particular scene. That dub is special to my heart. Sadly, video is banned here.

    Is the original anime "bad" enough to be considered a guilty pleasure?

    The 90's anime is exceptional. Episodes 45 and 46, for example, are memorable. Even SuperS, as flawed as it may be, is a beautifully animated season.

    For you, who is Usagi's mom - Ikuko, or Queen Serenity?

    A better question would be: Who is Princess Serenity's FATHER?

    Season 4 movies update: Sailor Moon Eternal - Coming in 2020

    So, just out curiosity, are contemporary TOEI movies as good as the old ones; for example, "the promise of rose"? I am being realist and not having any expectations that this will be a masterpiece, but I am curious if TOEI makes its movies a little better than its anime shows.

    Manga ending question?

    At age 22, she will retain her youth and stop aging biologically. I always thought that was the coolest part.

    Sailor Moon was the first Magical Girl Deconstruction

    She didn't write it. According to my understanding, she always wished to see Sailor Moon as a tokusatsu show. As for her involvement with PGSM, she only helped to choose the actresses to portray each senshi and designed the costumes of Sailor Luna and Princess Sailor Moon. I don't think she did...

    Season 4 movies update: Sailor Moon Eternal - Coming in 2020

    I want a nice soundtrack, new songs, and, if lucky, a clip like the one they made for Moon Pride.

    Sailor Moon was the first Magical Girl Deconstruction

    My position is that if Stars had been adapted into anime back in the 90s exactly like it was in the manga, then Madoka and Sailor Moon Stars would feel very identical. While watching Madoka for the first time, what came to my mind immediately was the Stars arc of Sailor Moon, manga, of course...

    Sailor Moon was the first Magical Girl Deconstruction

    I agree with you about the Stars arc being a descontruction of the genre. In fact, I feel Madoka feels very much like the Stars arc, as seen in the manga. All the characters die, Sailor Cosmos wants to end the universe, and the ending that was given to us is that Sailor Cosmos will exist as...

    Season 4 movies update: Sailor Moon Eternal - Coming in 2020

    Re: Precure. I have always been under the impression that TOEI treats Precure far better than it treats Sailor Moon because Precure is TOEI's baby. I don't think it is possible that Setsuna had parents; if I recall correctly, she just appeared on earth right away as a grown woman. Neptune and...
