they never showed sailorstars in america because of three sailors that are guys tranform in to girls when they fight. they didnt know how to explain it so they never put it.

That most definitely would have been dubbed inappropriate for american television. I figured it much because a long time ago I used to have a picture of all the "sailor" characters then when one of my friends saw it, they said that a few of the sailors were men. Of course, I didn't accept what he said at first, but after a while I thought it might have been true. That is when I stumbled across wikipedia.org which told me everything I needed to know about the Sailor series. Voila, now I will not be the same again. :oops:

I still liked the series even though something like that is in it. The fact the three sailor starlights disguise themselves as male pop stars on Earth in search of a missing princess sounds weird, but it's not a problem for me.

I was just thinking of this a while ago and it's pretty ironic that they won't air Sailor Stars because of the transgender senshi but they did depict Haruka and Michiru as cousins when they clearly aren't which is pretty much boarderline incest if you ask me.

But anywho, I am a proud Sailor Moon fan! I loved it as a kid, I still have the 6 inch dollies both with normal and shiny outfits. I've seen everything but season 1 (I know, I'm a bad person! >__<), my favourite season is R (Love the 4 sisters from the Black Moon) and Stars and my favourite senshi are Venus and Pluto.

I've only recently gotten back into it, after the show disappeared from TV, I lost interest but a few years ago when I learned about the original Japanese version, I got hooked on it again. Sadly when I did, the DVD's were out of print as well as many other SM merchandise - a prime example of how my timing sucks :P

Ever heard of "THE INTERNET". You can get merchandise, DVDs, and "illegal" (but seriously nobody cares, we all do it anyways, just don't ask us where to get it) downloads of anime.

My situation is pretty much the same as yours, Red_Kitsune; only difference is, I've had the ability to look them up and watch them if I wanted, and just never did. I stopped watching them when I was a kid, and just never felt like going back.

Got a few anime I'm already chipping away at, so I dont see any sense in taking a step backwards into the '90s to watch something - just to get all nostalgic.

I've never, and will never, deny being a fan of Sailor Moon.

I have browsed through Ebay for merchandise but the bidding can get very outrageous and right now, I just don't have the money. As well, one of my local anime shops where I bought the Japanese manga from has mysteriously decided to close up.

So I found an old issue of Anime Insider today and there was an interview with Catlin Glass where she admits to being a Moonie and even said she'd be very interested in voicing Usagi if Sailor Stars ever gets dubbed. (slim chance, but we can always dream. . . )

So, they don't seem to have fucked up Crystal, which is nice. I'm not a fan of the series at all (I've seen the new remaster of the fast 6 or so episodes, which I liked but didn't love) but I would still have been annoyed if they messed it up big time, just because it's such a big deal. The first episode was plenty enjoyable, when the Nico Nico stream wasn't completely crapping out on me and showing me something that can best be described as an artifacting orgy. The only real problems with it were that the background art (pastel stuff that looked like a cheaper, digital version of the backgrounds from the original) didn't compliment the character designs (which I think look fine, I don't know what everyone's complaining about) very well at all, and that the CG transformation sequence looked kind of shitty. But hey, they haven't massively fucked it up yet. I think that's enough to be happy about.

First ep was really underwhelming IMO. The animation was pretty soulless. Not really expecting much out of this remake.

no remake for a series as high profile as sailor moon is going to live up to expectations, they are also keeping somewhat more faithful to the original manga which came out in 1991, when this genre didn't exist yet. I'd say this is more of a love letter to the sailor moon fans out there rather than trying to break any new ground in any other areas.

I think the enjoyment level will improve as it goes on. Ep/Act 1 never deviates very much from the original manga, so it's pretty boring to watch the 4th incarnation of that act. I think it'll get way better as it goes on. I do think the animation was a little iffy, but I'm gonna give it a chance.
