Only strong shipping mainly annoys me, usually Usagi X Seiya, although that ship doesn't seem as common anymore.

I also dislike people who look past every flaw the DiC dub has. In my opinion for what it was the DiC dub was pretty good, it did the most it could in my eyes and many of its changes were necessary. But wow....some people defend this dub like a they are some kind of lawyer...seriously. Ok, maybe the DiC dub isn't that bad, but its not exactly anime dubbing's magnum opus.

Cloverway doesn't seem to get that treatment for some reason.... I will never understand why....

Mine is when other people bash on people who haven't seen the entire series. I stopped at R, yet people make a big deal about it. Also, complaining that Mercury is the weakest senshi, her attacks are mostly counter-offensive that's why she rarely destroys anyone.

I'm not a fan of Seiya x Usagi shipping AT ALL .

Also my biggest pet peeve (next to rampant Crystal hating) is the 90's anime elitism .
It seems like a widespread issue that a lot of fans think that the 90's anime is the de facto best and death to all who disagree .

That complaint proves that the complainer stopped watching at the end of the first series, or they'd know she's as powerful as the other Guardians. Except Venus, but considering her level of experience that's to be expected.

I was recently re-watching some of Super S and reminded of what may be my biggest pet peeve of the series...something that to me seems like a really questionable writing choice that occurs in the final episode of the season.
Image

So you know those Lemures that Sailor Moon has been killing the entire season without a second thought? Those strange seemingly evil inhuman nightmare circus monsters who wanted to steal people's dreams and cast the world into darkness...yeah turns out they were actually innocent people under Nehellenia's control after she stole their dream mirrors. WTF! Seriously just give that a minute to sink in... Sailor Moon who has been all about redemption and offering second chances even to people who did some truly terrible things of their own free will like the Black Moon Clan and Nehellenia was straight up killing actual innocent possessed people for an entire season! Holy crap is that dark. It is a good thing that Usagi doesn't get the visual aid to Nehellenia's story that the audience does which shows this or this realization may have completely wrecked her as adamant of a defender of life as she thought she was.

To add to that, you can see that once their Dream Mirrors left their bodies, Nehellenia's subjects instantly turned into Lemures, yet whenever the Amazon Trio/Amazones Quartet removed the VOTD's Dream Mirror, said VOTD did not turn into a Lemure. CONTINUITY!!! :wry:

And here's one of my pet peeves: Singular parsing of terms that are meant to be singular and plural at the same time. "A Lemures" ("lem-ress"), not "A Lemure".

my pet peeve with Super S is how stupid the villains are I lost count how many times Chibi-Usa summoned Pegasus and the villains still couldn't figure out whos dream he was hiding in, you'd think after seeing a girl summon the very being your looking for that maybe just maybe he might be hiding in her dreams XD

@magic713: The original artist is a member here, btw (though not online frequently), you could ask her to link up the strip in question herself. ;)

Fans who tweet at the Sailor Moon 25th Anniversary official account or Osabu's twitter asking "Where's Crystal S4?" in ENGLISH.

First off, it's already kind of rude and weirdly entitled to be demanding information via twitter. No company is like "well some random fan just asked for the release date, so let's reveal it!" But it's when worse when you're not even tweeting them in their native language... If you're going to bother to try and communicate with them, do it properly.

Also, as much as I disliked Crystal's first two seasons, tweeting hate towards the staff's personal accounts was also incredibly wrong. Leave an Amazon review, if anything. But don't bother their personal accounts.

TL;DR - Sailor Moon fans need to think before they tweet.

People who call the "Black Moon arc" the "Dark Moon arc." :evil: :evil: :evil:

People who refer to the Dark Kingdom, the aliens, and/or Black Moon Clan as the Negaverse.

To be a little fair, the clan does refer to themselves as "Ankoku tsuki no ichizoku Black Moon" in the original, which translates to "Black Moon, clan of the dark moon", "Black Moon, the dark moon clan", "The dark moon clan, Black Moon", "The clan of the dark moon, Black Moon", etc.

Xenox33 I don't see what the issue is in Usagi killing the Phages again she had no way of knowing their backstory and there wasn't much she could do to help them.

Also to MementoNepenthe they turn into Lemures because their Dream Mirror is extracted and taken from them to Nehellenia. Pretty much all of the people who had their Dream Mirrors taken in SuperS still had their Dream Mirrors connected to them. I also imagined that part of Nehellenia's magic turned them into Lemures.

That being said all of this is a moot point because at the end of the Nehellenia arc in Sailor Stars Sailor Moon restores Nehellenia's Kingdom and resurrects everyone with the help of the other Senshi.

There's just one problem with that theory, the Amazon Quartet had the Lemures eat the Dream Mirrors thereby taking away their dreams. Shouldn't they also become Lemures?

And Usagi once had her own Dream Mirror destroyed, which rendered her in a death-like state instead of turning her into a Lemures either.

It always kind of bugged me that Sailor Moon would revert to her Princess form for big fights, especially once it was revealed that she would someday be Queen. But again, it seems like the anime team went off on their own with this. I mean, in the manga and Crystal, it becomes clear that Sailor Moon/Usagi wants to have a life separate of her old Princess identity. Furthermore, in all continuities, the Princess was pretty much defenseless. That's why she needed the Inners to look after her on the Moon. But in the anime, if there's a big fight or something, Sailor Moon turns into a princess.

She wasn't Sailor Moon back in the Moon Kingdom and therefore had no power or combat experience to fight her own fights. It's different now that Usagi is both a princess and a warrior.

Agreed. Also I'm pretty sure it's explained at some point that Usagi can only use the Silver Crystal to its full potential in her princess form.
