Idk if this has been a thread already, but if it hasn't, well here we go!

This can be a discussion about anything pertaining to Saior Moon's very first season such as art styles, goofs, character development, character introductions, plot and storylines that you liked and disliked, friendships , character bonding, romances , ships, episodes that you liked or disliked, conspiracy theories (lol), mysteries that haven't been explained , debates about the events that happen or the character's motives, and how it might affect later seasons,etc.


Just trying to start a new thread that may interest people since the forum has been looking less active lately. Please share your thoughts! I don't wanna feel awkward.

Sailor Moon season 1. Where do I start... this was obviously my introduction into Sailor Moon, and I still remember having the old video cassets that my cousin would record for me to watch. I think I've seen the first episode about 50 times.. at least hahaha. I was introduced into sailor moon with the DiC dub, like many and to this day it will still always be my favourite of the English dubs. I don't really know what else to say other than I'm glad I was able to get into this anime, it shaped a big part of my childhood and adult life. Moonie for life! :)

Whenever I feel like re-watching episodes, this is the season that I usually come back to. I like the simplicity of the story and the introductions of all the characters, plus the monsters looked cooler and more threatening than in the later seasons. This season also feels a little more quaint than the later seasons since there aren't as many characters to focus on. My only true gripe is that Minako's more goofy side could've been a bit better developed.

It's perhaps one of my favorite seasons, second to S. It is in a season like this that had a good balance of pacing and filler. While some areas of the story could use some improvement (nothing's perfect) I really enjoy rewatching that season a lot. Decent beginning, we are given some filler episodes to get use to new Senshi before more introductions, most of the villains had enough to make them interesting, and an excellent conclusion. Overall, love the season.

^ Yeah I loved most of the fillers of season 1. I also liked how they first started to develop the Naru/Umino ship when he was hilariously impersonating Tuxedo Mask :D :P .

Then there's the Zoisite/Kunzite ship l, where I think that Zoisite was a bit jealous of Queen Beryl, and disliked her lol but then that's my theory

Poor Jaedite, he's all alone......wait he has Thetis, but that was unrequited love.

Naru/Nephrite ship made a lot people like him

The start of Usagi/Rei's beautiful yet antagonistic rivalry/friendship

Theories that I have seen or me up with:
Is It possible that Naru was a descendant from the Silver Milenium?

Was Neo Queen Serenity reincarnated on Earth somehow as well? (I know she died after using the Silver Crystal,and we saw her hologram when they went to the moon, but it is possible.)

^I ran out of room.....

One more thing, who was Usagi's father in the Moon Kingdom, and why was he never shown or mentioned? I can understand if he was just irrelevant plot-wise, but he is one hell of a mystery. Did they asexually reproduce back then in the Moon Kingdom or something? lmao.

I really enjoy the first season, it's the group of episodes I've seen the most. I've always found that it has a good story pace throughout and the characters have some good development.
I also have a fond memory of this, as it's something that started and solidified a good friendship for me in my teens.

SMC was an awesome that turned the super quick manga into an expansive immersive tale. I love the comedy, action and final battle. A good build up to a satisfying conclusion. It was a series that could survive on its own.

He's probably in the same place Takumi Fujiwara's mom is.

I feel ok I what I enjoyed the most about season one of the 90s anime was it told a complete story. The Sailor Stars finale felt more like a typical season finale than an actual series finale. The first season wraps up all it's main stories and character development and you could stop at that point if you wanted and feel like you got a whole story. I also appreciated the writers took a lot of creative risks with the adaptation. They didn't stray too far from the source material like SuperS did, but still expanded on the story with a lot of original subplots and new characters while still keeping the basic outline of the manga. It's the kind of risk taking in anime adaptations you just don't see as much these days in modern anime.

I like Crystal and the Manga (story wise) purely because it seems like the writers went off and did some fan-fiction (which is what I honestly see Stars as.) I like that they expanded on the villains a bit, but they had so much more to run with. The rainbow crystals arc was a disservice in my opinion as it just only provided monsters of the day. I liked that they focused on Usagi being Sailor Moon on her own however- and the trio of Mercury and Mars.

But in reality we get half way into the season and 2 major characters aren't even introduced. That's a bit ridiculous. Even in the manga/crystal we get to see more of Jupiter and Venus than in the anime. And then it seems so rushed to cram stuff in there because they were getting closer to the end. The brainwashing was trite too.

Overall; I have fond memories but all it does for me now is set up a prolonged introduction with less action and weaker character development than it could've gotten.

What do you think that arc should have been then? I'm honestly curious.

Neo Queen Serenity and Queen Serenity are not the same person. Neo Queen Serenity is the future Queen form of Usagi. Queen Serenity is her mother in the Silver Millennium. Also I don't know if she was reincarnated I think her spirit basically just lives on the Moon.

Well in the Stars manga it was implied that Princess Serenity was basically the result of a virgin birth by the power of the Galaxy Cauldron. Further cementing her whole Messiah and Jesus connection in S.
