I mean... Serena and company are 14. You're 14 in 9th grade. It's not a terribly hard to understand mistake (and really the mistake is on the part of Naoko and Toei since at 14, Usagi *should* have been in her third year of junior high. In any case, the timeline is an absolute disaster.)
I mean 13 turning 14 for 8th and 14 turning 15 in 9th. Since the series starts in Spring Usagi should have been 13 at the beginning and then 14 around Nephrite. Or in grade 9/third year middle school and turn 15

Rewatching some clips of the S dub and Mistress 9's voice and laugh are so iconic and over the top lmao. Did we ever figure out who voiced her? Hotaru, Sailor Saturn, and Mistress 9 sound like they had different VAs.

Hotaru and Sailor Saturn are clearly voiced by the same person though. She (Jennifer Gould) just dropped the scared trembling Hotaru voice for the more dutiful and sure of herself Sailor Saturn voice but you can still tell she’s voicing both.
 
I never realized that DiC was gonna make "Victoria" a high school student instead of middle school. I wonder if there was a reason for that or if they hadn't actually seen the show yet and assumed she was in high school.
There are a lot of countries that don't have a middle/junior high school, so it could've been just a simple mistake. In Australia we have primary school prep-6, and our high school is year 7-12.

I think Frenchfries's point is that having junior highs / middle schools is the norm in the US and Canada, so it's doubtful they were going to localize Usagi/Victoria into a high school student as a result of some kind of cultural difference in school system design.

Speaking of OP here's the lesser known Cloverway and Pioneer edited version of the openings



Unlike the DiC opening the Cloverway opening just uses clips from S and SuperS episodes instead of a mix of clips and footage from the actual OPs (although they most certainly had them available)

At least the footage was made to fit the song. In the Uncut dvds they just paste the song over the Japanese OP and it doesn't work at all (i.e the Sailor Scout Roll Call doesn't show each Scout as they name them)
