Sorry, just never got around to it. *shrugs* May as well just wait to see it dubbed now.
Hopefully they pronounce all the new names in the short correctly, so as to not leave a mistaken first impression on you.

^Yes because mispronounced names is what would ruin the special....

Other than Mercury’s Aqua Mirage destroying the monster (the only time Mercury destroyed a monster not counting combing with Moon and Mars against the Gemini Twins) you’re not missing much honestly. Ami acts ooc and the special forgets Ryo exist

I think "Ami's First Love" is a funny little side-story, and [much like the movies themselves] is very well-animated, compared to the series itself.

And I managed to see the Dubbed double-feature a few days ago (though I got in the theater immediately as the R Movie started ^_^'). As for the S movie dub, I thought Viz did a good job as usual, the stand-out of the new cast members in this film being Melissa Fahn, who's always a pleasure to hear. I will say that Luna's crying scene... kinda just sounded like someone pretending to cry, but it was still better than the cat noises in the original dub. XD

I remember I had the SuperS movie on VHS subbed with Ami's First Love and after there was an interview with the animators and artists.
Must have been a fansubbed bootleg of the movie's Japanese VHS release.

I don't really feel Ami is OOC in it just obsessed with winning. Also honestly I always felt Ami's First Love as a title was a misnomer she honestly didn't act like she loved Mercurius more like she wanted to crush him in competition totally different then how she felt about Ryo.

The R Japanese track is still that low-quality mono presentation.

S on the other hand was a surround track and it sounded SO GOOD...maybe not compared to modern sound design but it was so cool to hear the music and sound effects coming out of more than two speakers lol!

Was the dub track surround?

My friend went to a showing in Boston last night, and apparently they mistakenly played Ami’s First Love and the beginning of the SuperS movie by accident...
 
Good Lord, I don't remember the English version of Luna sounding like a putty patroller from Power Rangers at all.

Yeah, I like the new dub as she actually cries like a human. The original director was wrong for making Jill try to emulate a cat. She just comes off like a putty patroller drowning in a lake or something.

I think the Japanese version is the best. I can appreciate the logic of having Luna cry like a cat, but it is a bit strange. Jill still gives a better overall performance than Michelle. My only real complaint with the Pioneer version is its improper grammar :lol:
