My list:

  • PGSM!
  • Manga
  • A tie between the original 90's anime and Crystal! (Neither SM anime is all that good, imo. Though, 90's is more fun.) :twistedevil:
  • Musicals?

1. 90s anime
2. Manga/Crystal. Its a tie because Crystal has the advantage of having music, improving some manga scenes and just seeing it in action in general but on the other hand manga feels more firm whereas Crystal (mainly season 1) had some unnecesary changes and cuts
3. PGSM
4. SeraMyu
5. Toon Makers

1. The Manga - It may have flaws re: pacing and character development and the Stars arc but the artwork is so beautiful and I think the actual plots and themes explored are very interesting.

2. PGSM - The only reason I'm not ranking this #1 is its lack of the Outers. Also Princess Serenity's hideous dress.

3. The Original 90s anime (Both DiC/CWi dub and JP original)- I have so much love and nostalgia for this show. It did great things re: character development, especially for the villains, and has a lot of iconic scenes, but there's just a bit too much filler and uneven writing for my taste. Especially compared to the manga, I feel like its plots just aren't as interesting.

4. The Musicals - I love the music, the costuming of the current run (previous run not so much :lol:), and the wackiness.

5. Sailor Moon Crystal Season III - Apart from the kind of derpy art style, this was a pretty good adaptation of the Infinity arc and makes a good companion series for future re-watches of S.

6. Sailor Moon Crystal - The first five episodes were good, then it all went to hell.

7. ToonMakers - Would love to see that pilot someday. Until then, last place by default.

Did you fall in love with these eyes, too? I lost my sleep ever since seeing them for the first time. They are so expressive. So dreamy and mysterious. :love:

I have noticed a distinct trend among more recent Japanese anime to draw girls with only one (lower) lip, as opposed to classic style, where mouths were typically drawn only with lines, without lips. I wonder if this transition has something to do with most anime series these days being outsourced to various South-Asian countries where artists gradually move towards their own drawing style for characters.

Spoiler: show

Most probably in a few years from now all anime girls will finally grow the second lip.

I meant story-wise, not animation-wise! (Though they did improve the animation at least a little bit for the BD/DVD release...)

I guess it looks "sexier" that way? :kiss:

1. 90's - truly the best and offered so much for the video gaming community. =^_^=
2. PGSM - I used to think it was a Power Rangers rip off. Was I wrong. Wished there was season 2 and 3. :cool:
3. Another Story - an interesting mix of the 90's and manga. 8)
4. S3 Crystal - we get to see :hotaru: in action. :keke:
5. S2 Crystal - Better than S1. ^_^
6. S1 - terrible execution of the general x sailor arc and poor animation for some of the episodes.
7. Manga - not a fan of the artwork.
8. Toonmakers - worth a laugh. But we still need to see the pilot. :ohmy:
9. Artemis' Lover - a laughable and distasteful fan fiction. Surprise, surpise! It's still searchable in youtube. :googly:
10. Chibiusa's 7th Birthday - So glad someone here mentioned what's it all about so I don't have to bother reading it. Probably written at the time grunge and metal music were still mainstream. :grey:

All the versions have their strengths and weaknesses and I enjoy all the versions more or less to the same degree.

1 TOON MAKERS SM: Cripple Mercury is such a game changer.
2 PRETTY GUARDIAN SAILOR MOON: Top notch CGI and costume designs.
3 SAILOR MOON CRYSTAL: Quality animation and revolutionary views on romance and female empowerment.
4 SERA MYU: Tony Award deserving acting.
5 SAILOR MOON MANGA: Strong character development.
6 SAILOR MOON ANIME: Not Senshi/Shittenou pairing? EPIC FAILURE.

Nice list, Sailor Starlight. I truly love how you put PGSM after the original 90's anime.

Thanks! Well, PGSM is a great adaptation. I really wish there was more. I mean, they managed to do wonders with the weakest manga arc, imagine what they could have done with the rest of them.

I would have loved it if PGSM covered the other arcs. I do think that PGSM would have faired better if instead of it being live action if they made it the second anime adaptation of Sailor Moon. I think had it done this and covered all the arcs it would have been more beloved then Crystal and would be sharp competition to the 90s anime in terms of popularity.
