    Series that took inspiration from Sailor Moon

    Inspired by the Wedding Peach thread, let's make a list of fiction that you personally feel is similar to Sailor Moon and might've took inspiration from it. After all Sailor Moon is the premier Magical Girl, one might even call her the face of the genre. She certainly is in the West at least...

    Sailor Moon and Wedding Peach

    Yeah, the manga-accurate reboot of Fruits Basket is absolutely amazing when compared to Crystal! I don't know why Naoko just doesn't take the IP away from Toei and sell the rights to another studio already, besides anybody who was even responsible for making Sailor Moon a hit like Junichi Sato...

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

    They only ever mention the 7 Great Youma being reincarnated as regular humans and that's probably only because the Rainbow Crystals were sealed within them. They never make any specific mention of Beryl and the Shittenou though as far as I can recall. I think you could headcanon it either way in...

    Discord?

    I saw a post about a Discord for this forum having been created and I'd like to join however the link was outdated and no longer worked. Could someone please send me a new link to the discord that hasn't expired yet please?

    Sailor Moon and Wedding Peach

    Just to make sure we're on the same page, you know I'm talking about right? That's who you were thinking of too? If so I'm also relieved to find out I wasn't alone in thinking that the parallels between them and Mamoru & Usagi were simply uncanny! I can't help but feel or at least wonder if...

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

    Nephrite managed to redeem himself so it actually did in fact start in Classic, granted it was only through death but who's to say Beryl shouldn't have gotten a similar scenario? And Galaxia genocided out not just one but multiple planets and yet she was still redeemed? I just more find it...

    Sailor Moon and Wedding Peach

    I find that the more and more anime and manga I watch and read the more I notice Sailor Moon's influence all over the place, not even just in the Mahou Shojo genre but Shojo as a whole. For example in Fruits Basket, (which is just a regular shojo, not even Magical Girl) there's this one couple...

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

    So we all know by now that in the 90's anime Usagi had a penchant for forgiving and redeeming the baddies, in fact I believe she pretty much forgave and redeemed every big "Human Boss" the one and only exception being Beryl. This always struck me as strange since with the 90's anime being big...

    Manga arc vs. anime season

    Classic: While there are some elements I prefer in the manga such as the Shittenou having originally been Endymion's retainer, Venus's bigger role/Decoy Moon Princess plot, the Holy Moon Sword, the more fleshed out details on the Silver Millennium and even some stuff I like equal to the anime...

    Why didn't mamoru get his memory back his life with his parents who died?

    I think Naoko definitely intended Sailor Moon to be horror-esque, or at least have horror elements, just look at some of her youma designs in the manga or that scream-inducing pic of Evil Endymion when Beryl brings him back from the dead all zombie like. This goes back to why I say Sailor Moon...

    Sailor Moon was the first Magical Girl Deconstruction

    Actually there is some debate to be on whether Beryl and the Earth were in the right, I mean Queen Serenity did kinda shut them out of the Silver Alliance and forbid contact with them, for no discernible reason also. Like what would you do if you had this incredibly powerful galactic wide empire...

    Sailor Moon was the first Magical Girl Deconstruction

    I still firmly believe that Naoko actually executed her ideas pretty well with what she had, people also have to remember that she was under a lot of pressure and was on a time crunch for SM as well. Perhaps the manga would've been smoother if she had more time? I feel PGSM is a better example...

    Why didn't mamoru get his memory back his life with his parents who died?

    Because ultimately his memories of his present life don't really matter in the long-run. :P See this is exactly what I mean when I say Sailor Moon is some fridge horror [BLEEP] and an attempt at a deconstruction. Mamoru's whole story alone is some depressing ass [BLEEP] and showcases just how...

    You have to admit though that it was weird as [BLEEP] that the 90's anime chose to go in that direction with having her already be in love with Helios before finding out he's human when in the manga she only starts developing feelings for him after she sees his human form. Like why change that and...

    Sailor Moon was the first Magical Girl Deconstruction

    The thing about Sailor Moon is that it's both a deconstruction and a trope codifier at the exact same time. It's the first of it's kind of a Magical Girl Sentai team and combining Tokusatsu with Mahou Shojo but it's also not afraid to deconstruct those very elements (at least the concept of...

    Sailor Moon was the first Magical Girl Deconstruction

    The problem is is that as an American we never got these early Mahou Shojo shows sadly. Sailor Moon was likely most Americans introduction to the genre as a whole. You're right and I do still like Madoka and think it's good, don't get me wrong. I just think newbies to the Magical Girl fandom...

    Which 90's Anime Season Most Deviated from the Manga?

    I concur with everyone else, definitely SuperS and StarS and they're honestly tied and are equally as divergent from the manga as each other, there's honestly no contest. Though really none of the seasons of the 90's anime do a good job in following the manga, this isn't necessarily bad though...

    Sailor Moon was the first Magical Girl Deconstruction

    No deconstruction has a very specific meaning, it doesn't just mean "dark and grim" all it means is taking a common wish-fulfillment trope, like being a magical girl, and applying realistic consequences to it by showing that it's not all cracked up to be and bringing the trope back down to...

    Sailor Moon was the first Magical Girl Deconstruction

    Yes thank you! I'm glad I'm not the only one that can see that Madoka was totally took it's concept and was inspired by the manga Stars. So really Madoka fans have Sailor Moon and Takeuchi to thank for the reason why the series and even the entire "Magical Girl means suffering" genre even...
