Since I'm new to Sailor Moon i have yet to hit that point but considering I've been more interested in things than this and have had periods of not caring like Pokemon or Sonic, I most likely will get bored of Sailor Moon from time to time

i only got into sailor moon at the start of 2019, so I'm still pretty new to the series. I do remember losing a lot of interest in Sailor Moon when I started to watch the fourth season, but I regain interest in season five.

How did you get into it? Had you heard of it before?

How did you get into it? Had you heard of it before?
So when I was in 2nd grade i started reading manga with the Zelda OoT manga and it came up in conversation with my older sisters, I find out they liked anime as kids. DBZ and Sailor Moon in particular. About a year later I played DBZ Legacy if Goku 2 and thought I really liked the story so I watched Dragon Ball and now it's one of my favorite shows of all time till this day. I never decided to give Sailor Moon a go since I got bullied enough by classmates for liking Pokemon and then there's my dad making sure I only got masculine interests. So fast forward to January 2019 a couple years after I stopped caring about that stuff and got into moe anime, it just hit me that if my sisters sorta got me into Dragon Ball then they must have good taste in anime right? So then I gave Sailor Moon a spin and... Didn't dig the first season a whole lot but a lot of anime I like has lackluster first arcs so i continued watching and whaddya know this show is my new love right now.

Edit: sorry for the Bible here

There are phases when I don't care about anything, and every favorite franchise wanes and waxes in terms of my ability to care.

Sailor Moon is one of those series I usually have slow-burn love for even when I'm not into as strongly, but there have been times where my interest has waned.

My love for the series is currently at a low. The biggest reason why I'm here now, at all, is due to petty spite ("I just have to have the last word"), and secondarily due to an improved quality of discussion. But right now, I'd rather watch NFL Rush Zone than Sailor Moon. The Sailor Moon I love is just my memory and no one else's. As a result, I can't really care for this series as I did in my youth.

Sailor Moon isn't just Sailor Moon, but an individual fan's whole personal experience of it & of w/e related to it, which can be quite unique, but even if looking similar to some other fans', it can't be exactly the same & is still different in some ways. :)

I completely agree. I've noticed that for a lot of people (myself included) it's tied to fond memories of their childhood/that era.

Do my threads fall into that category? :D

When it comes to interests, most times for me, they burn fiercely for a few weeks, before dying down and I move on. Sailor Moon is one of the few that has endured for me in the long run. I might take a break of it for a day or so, here and there, but ultimately I stick with it.

From mid 2002 to dec 2003 then again 2004 till 2005 summer

the 2002 reason is Toonami kept repeating s and supers I got tired of re watching the same eps and kinda moved on for a while watched other anime

the 2004 was soon after seeing the japanese sub and PGSM for the first time but nothing else for a while kinda just wasn't in a sailor moon mood for a while

2005 I did a film project for fun and I used 90s sm footage and re watching it kinda re awakened the urge to re watch sm and I finally got more japanese sub dvd's leading up to Stars by 2006 and the drive to watch sm came back stronger than ever and I never abandoned it again

As a lifelong fan I can say yeah, I go through long phases where I don't actively care about Sailor Moon- I don't particularly lose interest, it just becomes more passive for me and I don't go out of my way to do anything Sailor Moon related and I keep all of my SM stuff in boxes until I'm back into it. I find it helpful tbh, I have so many interests and I certainly can't be into them all simultaneously, and I don't want to sour Sailor Moon (or any of my other interests) for myself by forcing myself to be interested all the time. Constant exposure like that can really ruin things for me.
