Naoko loed the old anime, minus some changes in Stars, she was close with the voice actresses, she even liked the old dic dub. People use her as a tool for whatever they don't like.
Only things she also wasn't happy with besides the gender bender Starlights (whom I oddly still see as males in Sailor form in Sailor Stars :confused:) was no Eternal forms for the Inners/Outers, no Sailors Cosmos, Heavy Metal Papillon, Lethe, Mnemosyne, Phi, Chi, Sailor Kakyuu, Sailor Quartet. I'll bet she also was disappointed how there was no whole place with Sagittarius Zero Star (that has to be a Saint Seiya reference, I know it) being the birthplace of everything in the whole universe.

She even liked the DiC dub? I didn't know that...

She mentioned it in some side notes - that she was in the USA, she watched it and she felt excited, something like this.

I really like also all versions that we got till now.
I think it’s funny how much people speaking about the point of view from Naoko when she clearly never gave any clue about her feeling . The only things that we’re sure (taken from her notes in the 1st edition of the manga ; who were translated in French also in the manga) is :
1/ she was surprised that the Senshis were killed during the first season
2/ she was surprised about the personality of Rei in the first anime but still liked it
3/ that she constantly buy sailor Moon merchandising and make a big party during the final of the show
4/ wrote some songs for the anime
5/ she draw one picture with the Inner and the Shitennou in one Artbook because at some point she had the idea to mix them together (but drop the idea because of time issue...)
6/ she particularly enjoyed the cast from the first anime, met regularly for party etc.. and even watched the American version and was surprised to see so many advertisements during it lol.
7/ she wished sometimes stories were more similar between manga and anime (specially at the end). I still think it would have been amazing to adapt the Galaxy cauldron part in a final movie for the classic anime :)
5/ the rest is more or less bla bla about her life, car etc...
From one interview she gave in France for “Animeland” (magazine) she said that she was surprised that the Starlights were male because Senshis should be girls... and had at this point an idea about OAV about V (1997).
And we know that she was implied at least at the beginning for PGSM (but at which point no one really knows; she designed Sailor Luna costume).
But to be honest her reactions were never about hating something or being mad at something.

For me, she a very discreet person and show tendencies of depression when she was producing the manga and never did any new famous work after Sailor Moon and getting married. All the rest is pure speculation from fans :)

I agree that we really don't know what or how she feels, though many sources allege she is difficult to work with, judging by her let down of how some things didn't carry over from the manga you can bet she was protective. I'm one of the few that like the Eternal forms. It makes them all look like this one powerful unit, and it's nice to see this kind of uniformity as warriors/guardians. I actually would like to see the Eternal full like Naoko. I love the layered skirts.

Hope we get to see that one day, animated properly.

I still believe that she threw the missing PQ Angels manuscript down the toilet. :creeper: It's just not good enough to give her a new Porsche unlike her magnum opus :usagi:. :yoshi::yoshi::yoshi::yoshi::yoshi::booze:

According to snowgeisha's translation, she said, "Furthermore, the fact that the Sailor Starlights were men when they became the Three Lights, which was not the case in what I had done, seemed very different to me." She was surprised the anime made them men because it was different from what she had done, not because only women can or should be Sailor Senshi.

I myself remember reading how she wasn't happy with not being able to collect all the Sailor Moon goods (I agree with her, there are too many), people used to confuse her for working on the anime when she didn't, she liked the portrayal of the Starlights in the Sera Myus better and I heard the whole way the Inners died in season one was actually how she wanted them to die in the manga, but her publisher wouldn't let her (and yes, they should have had the Galaxy Cauldron part as a movie).

would be cooler if that would change into the Princess Sailor Moon style Fuku [which is the one thing I like about PSM]
Aren't they gonna be using the bubble sleeves (if we manage to reach Stars before 2030) cause its the one in the covers for the eternal edition?

While I still think its tacky I much prefer it over those horrible ginormous bowling bowl sleeves. Only 80's Princess Allura manages to make it look good for some reason even when she's poorly drawn and/or animated.

Since I just re-read "The Lover of Snow Princess Kaguya," I thought I'd post Naoko's post-chapter notes (Tokyopop translation) since they offer more insight into her feelings regarding the original anime:

This makes me wish I saw something on her thoughts about Sailor Moon Crystal.
She's mostly revealed her thoughts in relative depth in the notes in her works like the manga & artbooks, & since she no longer produces works like those nowadays, there's lil opportunity we can get to know about her present thoughts.

Girl oriented sounds about right lol

S movie is my fav of the 3 films I'd watch it a thousand times before I see R movie again [which I dislike ]
SuperS movie is second fav though

strangely enough I been really into the manga lately I got the first 3 volumes and plan to get the rest eventually cause instead of reading online as I always have I wanna own it

^ It's a pity that she didn't participate in the production of the next movie like that. *sigh*
She did design the villains (and Perle) for the SuperS movie, which has always made me wonder if perhaps she initially intended to write it as a side-story first, or what?

I always like the S movie the best too. It’s the only one to be wholly unique. R and SuperS kind of just rehash their respective seasons

I agree S movie was really a great story and it was nice to see luna as more than the talking cat with exposition but actually care about this man who saved her life and wants to return the favor and despite it all still loves artemis

I love Luna so much

I'm not really invested on the S movie.

Feels like one long well made filler episode.

The final battle felt so Metalla infused Beryl-ish. The only difference is no one died this time.

Though I have to admit the :chibiusa:, :usagi: and ::tuxspeedmask: scene was the funniest. That bad engrish was epic.
