I know we have a "which version of Usagi is your favorite" poll, but this applies to all characters, all aspects, all plots of the series. :D

The manga, written by the series' creator. More power for the Senshi and a more intriguing development process.

Manga version. It's what the creator's original story was, and is the standard by which all other continuities are judged.

I loved the Manga most overall. It is the Bible to everything Sailor Moon. I love how the story is darker and there's less fillers plus more affection between the main couple.

I'm stuck between the Manga and the Musicals.
I have some affection for the ShitennouxSenshi couples. ♥

The Anime is my favorite definitely, the plot was better overall, there was more character development, and the villains had better personalities.

I don't agree with the second part about character development, but I definitely agree about the villains. The villains tend to be my favorites in a show, and for that much, I'm going to have to go with the anime.

Because there were more episodes in the anime there were more chances for the characters stories and development to be explored. However it is true that in the manga certain things were explored that were not in the anime and the Outer Senshi certainly got more character development then they got in the anime especially in SuperS and Sailor Stars but over all the anime had the lions share in character development. However I agree on the villains the fact that they were given personalities and great ones at that definitely is better then the manga where most of them had none.

Oh, they certainly had chances. I don't think that they used the chances wisely though.

The characters do seem more, well... complex in the manga, perhaps thanks to their backstories and more focus on that. In the anime, they were lucky to get their "spotlight" episode about twice a season.

For me its the anime cause that is what introduced me to the series, but PGSM is closely behind it as it did a lot of things right such as more character development for everyone not just the senshi, vastly improved the relationship between Mamoru and Usagi than in the anime and really fleshed out the villains and side characters. Oh and gave some of the girls their own boyfriends such as Makoto and Motoki :)

I say the Japanese dub of the anime. I haven't read or seen anything else so it's all I got, well besides the english dub of course. And I'm satisfied. Maybe someday I'll check out the others but for now I love the anime. On that note I generally prefer anime or television and stuff. Books are cool because you get to use your imagination yes, and manga is cool because it gives you the pictures with you filling the blank areas, but I just like the anime better because it really brings characters to life. It's hard to replicate their energy or emotion on paper.

The anime by far. I love how the story, plot, and characters are brought to life.

The anime and the manga are tied and the highest voted in the poll with 10 each. :loltext:

Even though the anime is what I was first introduced to, I voted manga. Not that the original Japanese version was bad or anything, but I preferred the way everything was laid out in the manga (most especially the focus on the Outers in the Dream arc). The anime is a close second though since it fleshed out the stories' of the villains a bit more, and the musical is third. ^-^

Slightly leaning towards the anime, although both the anime and manga have their strengths and weaknesses.

The manga.

I love the anime to death, but I feel like the manga had a better story. Everything came to full circle in the end, it didn't really feel like that in the anime.

They did try to (sorta) do that at the end of the last anime episode, tho, but that's not a full circle plot-wise.

Yeah but... the manga revealed the villians to all have the same origin (which makes more sense) and had Usagi and Mamoru get married. P-:

There for it wins.

I believe in the Anime the idea of the villains having the same origin still applies even though it wasn't stated explicitly. Of course with the exception of the Makaiju, Xenian, Snow Queen Kaguya, Badiane and other villains. Though yes the marriage thing didn't happen on the anime.

So in this sense even PGSM has done better than the anime on this regard - it's got them married & Act Zero has literally completed a full circle. :)
