@Deadlyinx

Its slice of life done right. With a bit of fantasy fighting and drama to keep it from being all slice of life.

They really hit on a good formula back in the 90s. Wish a few more shows would try it these days. Especially since the guy who directed the first two seasons of Sailor Moon is still working on anime.

But as shows like Real Drive proved, people these days don't want that. They want total slice of life or total action. Not a mixture of both.

Because the original anime took the generic one-off monsters/villains and gave them some depth of personality. Senishinta is one of the more memorable monsters because of this.

haveahappyday
haveahappyday

@cum2soon

Most of them are suppose to be joke monsters. Sailor Moon takes a lot of influence from Sentai such as Power Rangers. So most of the lesser demons are just comedic tools to have an excuse for action. Only the main antagonists get serious.

The subordinates become even more of a joke as the show goes on. But in a good way. They become full characters themselves.

@Lord_Tryzalot

I don't think Sailor Moon gets enough credit for its design. Their use of shadows and angles is actually pretty crazy and really makes the show instantly identifiable. I also like that they go into a lot of back alleys, convenience stores, residential towers and etc. It gives the show a ultra urban feel that most shows even in 2015 don't attempt. As a kid, a big part of the reason I liked watching the show, outside of the unique slice of life comedy, was seeing the Tokyo setting. Obviously it is a highly stylized fictional version of Tokyo. But I actually think that makes it even more unique and interesting.

I think they started doing it so stupid people wouldn't think their 16:9 TVs were broken.

That is exactly right. And that's why I personally like the anime more than the manga.

I also think that's the major reason people dislike SMC so much. Well, aside from the horrid animation. But it just lacks all the slice of life comedy and reaction images that the original anime did so well.

It really sucks that such an otherwise interesting character, who has to deal with shit like being a fucked up suicidal princess in other adaptations, gets reduced to a vaguely annoying simple character who exists to be foiled by everything else then always win at the last minute.

I can't either, it really sucks but the show has so much great shit in it that you just have to look past this major flaw.

Is the manga better?
No. Despite what its fans say, it has just as much proportional filler as the anime, it's just a quarter of the length and much less complex. Certain chapters are, in my mind, the definite versions of certain acts (seriously, the Moon Kingdom/lore stuff in the manga shits all over what the anime did), but it's otherwise terribly written.

What I liked about the live-action is how Naru bitterly resented Ami over being friends with Usagi.

@Dreamworx
I think they did. I was a 5th grade male who watched Sailor Moon back in 2000 and loved it.

I think what made Sailor Moon a great success was the fact that it showed the girls doing everyday things in their civilian lives. It wasn't always about the conflict, but their school routine and social activities.

Or the episode about Minkao's past in England. Holy shit, why the fuck did they cut that out?
Because it implied that Minako had sex. Can't allow any talk of sex in a cartoon aimed at 10 year old girls.

At least not in America/Canada.

I actually saw the seiyuu for Minako at anime expo in 1999. And during the question and answer panel, I asked her if she knew that episode got cut from the western release. She said she didn't know, but didn't sound surprised.

Rei has that totally fire attitude, so I've always thought she would be the craziest in bed. I always imagine her riding on top, covered in sweat, with a lewd look on her face while she grinds back and forth. The kind of girl that would still keep going ever after you cum.

Usagi would probably be really fun, though. She would probably like being doubleteamed.

They didn't blatantly say they had sex. But the dub of Sailor Moon was so worried about even implications, they removed the episode. The same group removed 2/3 the episodes and every single mention of romance from CardCaptor Sakura. Which shows how stupid dubbing can be, since relationships were the entire point of the plot in CCS.

But nope, can't show relationships on a cartoon. Even completely innocent, heterosexual relationships between kids.

It aired around late 90s-early 2000s during Toonami's golden days, about a few years after Cartoon Network got the actual conclusion to the Black Moon Clan arc. (The original run was syndicated and ended at the episode where the last of the Four Sisters defected.)

They also tried eliminating all of the religious references in S. Saying "Holy Grail" on children's TV would have offended the Bible-loving Amurrikans, after all.

They changed the sex of some character in one episode of S because he cross-dressed at the end of the episode. Problem: it's implied ChibiUsa had a crush on him, and the dub doesn't change this. Because of this, I always say that Rini IS bisexual.

For reasons no one knows, they changed Zirconia's sex, too.

By far, Cloverway's biggest issue was consistency. The dub was so rushed that it seemed no one checked scripts, so it took them a long time to decide on what to call the Holy Grail and the Talismans. Poor Sailor Jupiter had a new attack name every day.

DiC was shit, but at least they were consistent and not sloppy. Both DiC and Cloverway sucked ass, just for different reasons.

And here I'm reminded that I had to watch the Japanese version before realizing that the animal shelter Usagi was talking about in the second episode of S was the same one Artemis found in the Black Moon arc.

Usagi is so kawaii in this outfit, and she has a SWORD! So, what is it supposed to be? The subtitles say thief.

She's supposed to be a ninja. Mamoru is staying at Rei's to work on his college stuff and Usagi dresses as a ninja in order to spy on them.

Looks like a typical Ninja/Assassin outfit to me.

This is her 'thief' outfit.

Crystal and the new re-release being a complete Toei cuckholding mess (hopefully the Australian release fixes this but I'm sure Toei will find a way to fuck that up) smashed together to create a black hole of anti hype from which no joy escapes.

People claim they hate SuperS
There are people who dislike that Rei and Mamo had a thing in the first season

WTF? The dynamic here is fucking gold, we have the MC sneaking around quite literally and explicitly because of the dick. The way this episode ties together so much unresolved shit from earlier is fantastic, SuperS is the GOAT anime slice of life/comedy and it's a shame it isn't seen as such.

Frankly you've got more chance of a pokemon adventures adaptation than a good Toei anything that's not precure.

And Mamoru is voiced bt Amuro Ray.

So Misato and Amuro flirt a lot in SRW

Because I'm pretty sure that wasn't in the manga.

Exactly, who gives a shit? Thank god the anime implies that the dude's bagged heaps of pussy before the show even began.

It probably would just go unnoticed. Saint Seiya is big in Spicland and there wasn't any uproar about Omega in general when it aired, only angry spics as it was airing in Japan.

Crystal has absolutely no soul compared to the 90's series.
Why is that?

-Totally new staff not related to the original anime
-Lacks the amazing music of the original show
-Is a straight adaptation of the manga, where the original anime altered and added a lot compared to the manga
-Fails to adapt the manga correctly
-Total lack of the reaction images and comedy of the original anime
-All the voices are changed except Usagi and Mamoru for some strange reason
-Third rate animation

No the issue is the opposite, it's too similar to the manga.

And the manga wasn't anywhere near as good as the 90s anime.

It adapts the manga more closely at the beginning but inexplicably deviates at some points as well. Like Venus and the sword at the end of the first arc.

Also, I agree that the 90s anime is superior to the manga and is a lot more responsible for Sailor Moon's popularity.

Adapting a show from another source is extremely tricky. In this case, it 'adapted' the manga so closely, it even kept to the manga's strange body proportions (huge pointy heads, dead eyes, legs 2x as long as the torso, etc). In a manga with still images, these things can pass. But when seen in actual moving animation, its very jarring and just doesn't look right.

And as time went on with the show, the animation just got worse and worse. To the point that it didn't even look like the manga anymore. Further breaking the suspension of disbelief.

Long story short, it set out to faithfully adapt the manga. But it did it so poorly, it isn't even comparable to the source material. While the original anime staff knew what would be needed to change to make it work in the medium of animation.

Is it just me or did Rei become Usagi's mom in Crystal? Also, I feel kinda bad that Kotono got involved in this. :/

It barely even got the Manga's style at that. Whether it was Naoko's flow or including the silly faces from the manga

It's already been pointed out that this is one of the biggest reasons why Sailor Moon is so good, it's pretty much unmatched in this regard. There's basically no TV show, whether live action or otherwise, that portrays the spaces its characters inhabit in such an immersive way on the same scale.
