    Will there be shorts in front of the Dream movies?

    Since Ami's First Love preceeded the SuperS movie, it would be fitting to adapt Mako's Melancholy before the first Dream film, and Rei and Minako's Girl School Battle before the second. And that's exactly why it won't happen. Toei has proven time and time again they are incapable of doing...

    When Was "Sailor Moon" Born?

    Another weird thing is there's an ad in the February 1992 issue for some prize giveaway thing. The top prize is a Super Famicon with a copy of Super Mario World. The prize is labeled the "Usagi-chan Prize" but the picture used is of Minako! So it seems from the very beginning this franchise...

    Nakayoshi Fan Mail Corner

    MAY 1993 Fan. Usagi, I bought all of the Sailor Moon tankoban and anime books. Good luck in the future. :usagi: Thank you. The Anime Album: Volume I, full of information about the anime, just got released. There's a section in it called the Sailor Moon Cheer Squad where we included lots of the...

    When Was "Sailor Moon" Born?

    Did a bit more sleuthing. This poster, which was one of the giveaways for the January 1992 issue of Nakayoshi, is dated November 5, 1991 - the same date as that character description page. So at that point Naoko either seriously intended for Usagi to carry a gun, or she really had no idea what...

    [US] Sailor Stars Viz English dub, DVD & Blu-ray thread

    They put way too much stress on the vowel sounds. CHEEEEEEBEEEEEEEYOUUUUUSA. Like... Say her name normally, it's not that hard.

    The New Dub of The Movies

    It sounds like they did. That trailer was so extra, lol. The SuperS movie is, like, the least dramatic of the three, but whatever. God I hate how they say "Chibiusa." It's so unnatural.

    When Was "Sailor Moon" Born?

    Looking at the two-page spread ad from the January 1991 issue, I noticed the tagline in the upper right hand corner says: 2月号はおもしろさ The February issue is gonna be interesting 2倍のVサイン Two Times the V Sign We can see that all of the characters are making the V-sign. The speech bubble text is...

    When Was "Sailor Moon" Born?

    For anyone interested, I translated the first ad (the one featuring just Usagi in her school uniform): 正義の戦士巻頭カラーで華麗に登場!! The Soldier of Justice Makes Her Splendid Debut!! First Page in Color 美少女戦士セーラーV 武内 直子 Pretty Soldier Sailor V Naoko Takeuchi 世紀末スーパーアクション End of the Century Super Action...

    I think we might get the movie this year

    That's true for Japan, but I think a DTV series would probably do fine in the US and other countries. It's just a matter of Toei being willing to let other studios handle such a project for an international market.

    Nakayoshi Fan Mail Corner

    My bad; I misunderstood what you meant. I think someone translated them somewhere, but I can't seem to find a translation at the moment.

    I think we might get the movie this year

    SuperS and Sailor Stars flopped not because people no longer cared about Sailor Moon, but because those seasons were excessively formulaic and did away with the popular Outers for the most part. But Toei doesn't understand that because they're stupid. The live action series did poorly because...

    When Was "Sailor Moon" Born?

    The first page is just a sales pitch for Sailor V. It says something like: Girls are leading the era right now. Both boys and adults are jumping on things that girls noticed first. The comics industry is also being supported by enthusiastic girls. . . . With that as the backdrop, the...

    I think we might get the movie this year

    After the anime (which didn't really follow the manga), we got the live action series which also deviated from the manga in some fairly wild ways, and we all know Naoko loved that show and was heavily involved in it. Clearly Naoko is fine with new content. It's possible she wanted Crystal to be...

    I think we might get the movie this year

    Naoko's wasn't upset so much as disappointed, but she got her wish with the S movie and remarked that she regretted being such a pain. For the SuperS movie she just contributed character designs and maybe some basic plot ideas. When the musicals started up again she gave the producers her...

    I think we might get the movie this year

    The conceit for Crystal was to do a faithful adaptation of the manga as a celebration of the franchise's 20th (then 25th) anniversary. At the same time, the musicals were revived and did the same thing. Celebrating the series' milestone anniversary by closely adapting the source material makes...

    When Was "Sailor Moon" Born?

    Not exactly. Chibiusa mentions that she's 900 in the R season memorial.
