    How Should the Manga Be Adapted Next?

    Of the choices, I'd be most interested in a translated audio book, because my biggest problem with the manga is sometimes I can't tell what's going on in it. Forcing someone to read it aloud and describe it would make it more clear, and it could be a companion to actually viewing the pretty...

    What Should Get an Official Translation Next?

    Definitely PGSM. Even though I'm not that big of a fan of it, it's a critical continuity of Sailor Moon that the fan base has wanted to be accessible.. I also would like to see the animanga released. It's a shame they stopped doing it, as I love the idea of Sailor Moon in an actual comic...

    You can only pick 2

    I would choose Sailor Moon and Sailor Saturn. Sailor Moon has plot armor that refuses to let her or anyone who is under her protection fall, while Sailor Saturn is powerful enough to do the dirty work of slaying the others, if necessary. The ultimate forces of creation and destruction, if they...

    Sailor Moon licensed in Spain by Selecta Vision

    If so, then good. The old Sailor Moon anime has had its time. Neither of those are going to happen. The original dub won't get re-released because the redub was meant to erase it, and despite people fondly remembering the old dub, people haven't organized around it. That and a certain...

    new mahou shoju animated short film! clearly inspired by SM!

    It's...so-so. There's nothing wrong with having a magical girl-type hero, except this girl is clearly more of Western archetypes in terms of powersets and fighting than Eastern ones. It's basically another girl who is supposed to be deemed a loser and invisible who is able to really beat...

    Can a dub actually improve upon the source material?

    Then these fans never wanted a faithful dub to begin with. They wanted a progressive dub and used the "faithful" card as an excuse to retcon Sailor Moon. That's precisely the opposite of following a creator's intent. At least I outright say that I don't care about how it was originally. These...

    Who is your favorite Black Moon Clan member(s)?

    For me it's Black Lady, and not just because of the "Evil Chibiusa" factor, but because unlike most of the other Black Moon Clan members, she was effective and devastating in her own right. She is the only villain who not only successfully deflected an attempt to heal her to keep on fighting...

    Did Professor Tomoe know that Hotaru was Sailor Saturn?

    I'm going to argue that it was to save time and to draw the season to its conclusion faster. Most of the episodes of Sailor Moon S were filler to allow the manga to maintain a steady distance. However, as the season began to draw to a close, the anime unfolded its plot in a markedly different...

    Can a dub actually improve upon the source material?

    I definitely believe a dub can improve on the original material. I believe the DiC dub just did that. However, you can't want a close dub and want a dub to deviate from the source to make it more palatable. I do believe a proper dub is a complete localization, which is not merely translating...

    What Sailor Squad is Your Favorite?

    As a team, definitely the original Sailor Team. I love Sailor Pluto and Sailor Saturn while I am pretty much an anti-fan of Sailor Mars (at least in the original anime) but the "Inner" team as a whole actually works better. Everyone has a purpose and a reason for being there. The "Outers," by...

    AI writes new Sailor Moon stories

    I am bumping this because I found something that was a little more interesting. There's a branch of the Transformer prompt called Write With Transformer First, here's a sample with the Talk to Transformer site: Now, let's see what happens with the Write With Transformer prompt: Hmm, this is...

    Series that took inspiration from Sailor Moon

    MIraculous Ladybug definitely takes inspiration from Sailor Moon, although it seems more like in the creative process, it was intentionally made more Sailor Moon-like with Toei's influence. The biggest similarity between the two properties is that the monsters of the episode are really normal...

    What's Your Favorite Style Sailor Uniform?

    I stick with what I like. The basic Solar System Sailor Uniform is hands down my favorite, although I admit, I like the Codename Uniform as well.

    AI writes new Sailor Moon stories

    Okay, I get it now. You have to feed this thing an actual prompt. ******************************* In another universe, Sailor Mars and Sailor Mercury fell in love. They became parents. After a while, the evil Sailor Moon disappeared. With the new Moon and Neptune's help, they discovered the...

    Sailor Venus (semi-WiP)

    Wow, this is one awesome piece! You chose a very difficult (and unique) perspective, one that requires her hand and forearms to be just right on, and you nailed it. This is absolutely more daring in terms of POV than most Sailor Moon art, fan or official. At the same time, this captures Sailor...

    AI writes new Sailor Moon stories

    I put in the first sentence from some of my really bad, really old discarded fanfic. This is the result. Prompt: “Another canister has arrived, your Highness,” reported a servant. Prompt: Prince Darien crouched behind a crate. Prompt: On a quiet early Friday afternoon, the mighty sun...

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

    I think they made her less sympathetic for three reasons. First and foremost, they may not have known what direction the story was going in the manga, so they did have to wing it, and were only able to incorportate manga elements sporadically. Basically they had to figure out what the story...

    What Obscure Attacks Should Make a Comeback?

    I kinda get it, but it's awful. That scene with Kunzite horribly done in the original anime, made even worse by the fact that the Shitennou's past, which was an important plot point of the manga, was reduced to a hint or two. So it was confusing, especially since one of the critical points of...

    What Obscure Attacks Should Make a Comeback?

    I'd love all of the Sailor Moon R "filler" attacks to not only be canon, but also close to ultimate attacks since their effects were more impressive than later standard attacks. I would also like to see "Double Shabon Spray Freezing!" the dub-only "Mars Firestorm Flash!" since that was supposed...

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

    As mentioned by others, Sailor Moon was not "Forgive & Forget" in Classic. This was a heroine petty enough to suggest killing a monster of the day instead of healing her just so her human self wouldn't be with Venus' crush. Furthermore, Toei clearly had no intention of trying to make Beryl...
