Aurorae Lunares

A bot bumped this post, then I had something to add, then the bot's post was deleted before I could post.

Anyway, decades ago when I had a Sailor Moon fansite, I actually composed a list of episodes I deemed essential for the DiC dub. It differed from the lists others compiled at the time. Rather than let the compilation rot on my hard drive, I'll post it here, dub titles and all. I actually presented the episode list in alphabetical and sequential order, but because that would be redundant, I'll just post the sequential order with my (old) justifications here:

Sequential Order
