Sailor Moon
It's not to bad, the only thing I got tired of was the constant telling the "bad" guy they were going to beat them and why. By the time they get done preaching the bad guy would have whooped thier butts easily. They lucked out by them being to dense to figure this out.

Sailor Moon
Aaahhhh..... Nothing like Strolling down memory lane. I remember this show very well, it was my first anime after all, and my favorite for quite some time until "Rurouni Kenshin" came along. But I'm writing in the "Sailor Moon" title, because nothing is better than classic "Sailor moon" for me. So....after about a year or two of not being here, I have decided to write another review for this site. As always (or recently anyway) I go by the catagories given, while adding a summary as well.

Summary: Usagi is a very clumsy, ditzy, and blonde (no offense to blondes....I have blonde hair myself) 14 year-old-girl who on her way to school, sees a group of kids harrasing a cat. Usagi chases them off and helps the kitty, which has a cresent moon on her forehead that was hidden under a bandaid. As Usagi comes home after going through the day, she notices the cat in her room, and soon finds out that its a talking cat named Luna (of coarse she is freaked out). Luna tell Usagi that she is a guardian soldier from the moon. Luna give Usagi a locket that allowed her to transform into the pretty soldier Sailor Moon. very soon after finding out she finds a friend of hers in danger as a Yokai demon attacks her. Usagi saves her friend, while at the same time, she is saved by a mysterious man in a mask, known as Texuedo Kamen. Not only does that happen but She finds out that there are more soldiers like her. Now Usagi has to find the others, save the universe from Yokai, and ponder who her love, Texuedo Kamen, is...all while trying to juggle her normal life at the same time. Needless to say, her life is now anything but normal.

Animation: For a show made in 1992, "Sailor Moon" wasn't bad at all. It had rather clean flowing animation for its time. Of coarse, now its considered nothing special, or average. I still find the animation for "Sailor Moon" quit nice to look at, and it only improves as you get further and further into the series. Sailor Moon also has that typical Magical Girl genre animation and art, so if your looking for something origional or different, you may want to turn away, although, Usagi's hair style I think is rather unique.



Plot: Its nothing more than your typical magical girl series. But for its time, it set the standard for alot of magical girl shows after it. In a way, "Sailor Moon" is what made the magical girl genre popular. I think it deserves credit for that. Though it may be a typical plot, its still one that can be enjoyed by most. It isn't a very bad plot at all, and its actually very fun, even if it is basic.

Humor: Since when has there ever been a Magical Girl series without humor? "Sailor Moon" is no exception. Just about every episode of "Sailor Moon" has some sort of comical fun, wether its Usagi's clumsyness, her fights with her comrads, or her spats with Mamoru, the man who tends to tease her everyday. Though the humor in this show isn't over the top, it does manage to get a few laughs ever now and then. Most of the humor is no more then cutsey fun, but it can suprise you every now and then and do something outrageously funny. It really all depends on your sense of humor though. Some people don't find cute light-hearted humor funny, where as others think its the best.

Soundtrack: I admit, I'm not really fond of the music for Sailor Moon, I find it rather boring actually. but others may think different. I do think, however, that the dub song that plays during the series's turning point (trying to keep this free of spoilers) is very beautiful and moving, I was moved to tears during that scene, and I think the music has something to do with it, that makes up for the otherwise bland music I hear.

Overall: This a very fun anime that I still enjoy to this day. Even if your not into the Magical Girl, cutsey, girly anime, I still suggest you see this. "Sailor Moon" happens to be a classic anime. No anime fan should go without seeing at least a few episodes of this in my opinion. So go pick it up, its worth a look. Just be warned that "Sailor Moon" all together including all seasons is 200 episodes long, so if your going to be commited to buying this, be sure you have alot of money in your pockets.

Sailor Moon
When I was younger I really liked this one. More suited for the younger ages in my opinion. But none the less, good animation, some humor, fun characters, etc. Although it was predictable, it was good.

Sailor Moon
Before I begin, I need to establish one thing: you can't rate anime series from an absolutist viewpoint.

This is a common mistake that people make when they judge the quality of anime series. You can't just say a given series sucks because it's different from the types you like to watch. Every anime should be judged within the genre it belongs to, and within the context of the time period it was produced in. You can't give Love Hina a rating of 1 just because you're a mecha fan and there aren't any mechs in it (Well okay, there are, but you get my point...). You can't say Galaxy Express 999 sucks just because you're used to the state-of-the-art animation and graphic that you get to see in anime series nowadays.

The question that should be asked is not "Is this a good anime?" but rather "Is this a good fantasy anime?" or "Is this a good 70's anime?" Love Hina is a damn good romantic comedy, and Galaxy Express 999 is a superb series produced 20 years ago. You have to try to look at anime series from within the categories to which they belong, and judge them accordingly.

The reason why I have gone on and on about a seemingly irrelevant issue is because Bishoujo Senshi Sailormoon is exactly one of those anime shows that get treated differently than they should. A lot of anime fans, particularly male fans between ages 11 to 16, give Sailor Moon horrible ratings because either (1) they're not into shoujo animes and they think the series sucks, or (2) they fear that somehow their manhood would be threatened if they didn't think Sailor Moon sucks, and/or failed to let the world know about it. (To be consistent, I'll also point out that Sailor Moon also gets unduly large amount of high ratings from female fans, which isn't the right way to judge an anime series either.)

You have got to try to look at this anime from the perspective of its main target audience: girls from ages 7 to 16, or somewhere around there. It's a GREAT shoujo anime. Easily one of the best, if not the best ever. And that's because it has a magical power to allow young female fans to associate and identify with the characters. It touches all kinds of things that girls like to fantasize about:

- An ordinary girl, just like them, becoming a superheroine, and yet still struggling with her emotions, and all kinds of emotional trials she has to undergo because of one man she has fallen in love with.

- A lover who is always there to support her no matter what ordeals and trials she has to go through ("Kimi wa tatakae, kimi no ushiro ni wa boku ga iru" -- the one line that has fascinated many young ladies who were fortunate enough to catch it).

- Love and friendship the heroine gets to enjoy in the company of four other girls of her age, etc.

Sailor Moon is a show that made its young viewers realize that all of these things are in store for them and great things like that await them in their future. And the catch is, the show did all this in a marvelously elegant way, using captivating plotline, a few unexpected turn of events, and some of the greatest emotional scenes that have graced the screens of shoujo animes. Yound ladies who watch the anime are captivated by one Tsukino Usagi, a character who in many ways may be just like them. Usagi grows on them as the plotline advances, and they eventually identify with Usagi as the series reaches its climax.

They become Usagi when she cries in Tokyo Tower, distraught with the emotional shock and trauma of finding out that her tuxedo-worn lover is Chiba Mamoru who she could never have guessed, and then promptly having him taken away from her by villains. They are Usagi when she finds out that Mamoru is brainwashed and now working for the bad guys, and desperately tries to reach him and get him back. They hurt every bit with Usagi when she (they) witnesses her dear friends protecting her powerless self and meeting horrific deaths.

You'll be hard-pressed to find a shoujo anime that was able to move so many young girls more deeply than Sailor Moon did.

This is a great shoujo anime that was superbly planned out and produced. The seiyuus are all top-notch voice actors/actresses as well, and some of the best voice-acting talents are featured in minor roles such as the Monster-of-the-Day's and the daily "guest" characters. And the music/soundtrack is quite possibly the best of the entire 90s, period. No matter what your age and gender may be, this is more than a worthy anime to watch if you're willing to step in Usagi's shoes just a little bit and try to identify with her throughout the series. You will cherish the experience.

Sailor Moon
Sailor Moon is what introduced me to the anime world. It is one of my favorite anime.The animation is ok, I've seen better but its still good and gets better as you move further into the anime. The plot is very yoi (good). The charicters have there very own unique personality. The humor is also very good. The soundtract I havent herd much of but the stuff I have herd is good. The only problem was that there was so much stuff cut out that they didn't even need to and some episodes that weren't shown were also needed, like the one one about sailor V. Overall this show is very good and a definet must see.

Sailor Moon
I think I may haver already voted. I am a long time Sailor Moon fan. I've been watching since it first came out. I have seen both American and Japanese episodes. I made an earlier post like this, but I want to edit it. Anyway, I am a huge Sailor Moon fan. I've watched it since way back in 1995. THat's when it first aired in America. Then after watching it everyday at about 6:00 I got the Japanese episodes. I loved them. Tuxedo Kamen/Tuxedo Mask is my favorite character. I've been in love with him forever. I love Tuxedo Kamen/Mask. I love Darien/Mamoru. I love both the English and Japanese versions of Bishoujo Senshi Seera Muun. I am also a huge Mamoru/Darien and Usagi/Serena supporter. I love Mamo-chan. I love Darien/Mamoru. This show is full of five seasons of love, romance, action, drama, and more. It takes you into the lives of characters you can relate to. It brings back memories of 1995 when it first aired and I watched it before it became popular and then got the Japanese version. This show is so memorable. It has tons of wonderful characters. Lots of romance. The Sailor Senshi and Tuxedo Kamen/Tuxedo Mask are wonderful. Along with many supporting characters. Their are tons of characters which we all love. This show is my favorite anime.
