Hi everyone! Um, I don't exactly know how to start this introduction. "I'm new here." "I'm a Sailor Moon fan." I don't want to say those because those seem obvious.
Anyway, I'll continue with this introduction!
I first heard of Sailor Moon when I was in 2nd or 3rd grade or somewhere around that time. I wasn't alive when the DiC dub was streaming, so luckily, I've never seen it
. I was told about it by an aquaintance, though she wasn't a close friend. I watched 4Kids sometimes at the time (ahh censored dubs!), so I already had an interest in anime. At one point, 4Kids stopped operating (I later found out that it was because of something with Yu-Gi-Oh; I think I only found that out this past summer, or even more recent), so I stopped watching any anime.
When I reached 5th grade, I found out about Vocaloid (a singing voice synthesizer) and became interested in it. It turned out that many Vocaloid fans were also anime fans, so eventually, I became interested in anime, too. I recalled what my aquaintance said, and decided to check out Sailor Moon. Luckily, it was 2014, and the 20th anniversary was kicking off!
I watched the first episode of the first anime. I was not too fond of the art style. Then, I found out about Sailor Moon Crystal, which was supposed to be more accurate to the manga. Eventually, I started watching that, and I didn't continue the first anime after the first episode (though, at one point, I did watch a random Viz dubbed episode from the Makaiju arc of R and part of the second episode). I think I started watching Crystal after the 7th episode aired.
Sometime between the airing of Crystal episodes 15-23, I started lurking this forum. It was interesting! Now, I have obviously decided to sign up.
By now, I have read general plot points of the original anime's seasons online, so I'm not completely clueless
. I have finished the manga (shinsouban).
Thank you for reading this! I know this was super long, and I appreciate if you read or skimmed through this.
