Why Do So Many Fans Like My Only Love?

Why is it that there are so many Sailor Moon fans who love the dub song, My Only Love? It seems like even most sub fans agree that it's the best song Dic ever had (though, personally, I think The Power Of Love was a better song myself). I just don't understand the appeal of this song. The lyrics har...

The only VAs changed were Serena's, Mina's, Amy's, Chad's, Grandpa Hino's, and Rini's friends at school had their VAs changed. I'm pretty sure the rest of the English cast is the same.

Another dub line I thought was hilarious was in English episode 76 when Serena finds out she's Neo Queen Serenity. Serena: Neo Queen Serenity, queen of Crystal Tokyo in the future and the entire planet?! Does she always wear her nightgown in public?

One thing I noticed was that Rei's past is inconsistent in the R movie compared to the rest of the show. Like the movie shows that Rei had a lonely past where she was hated for her powers by others, but then in the TV series Rei was the most popular girl at her private school and even had her own fa...

One thing that annoyed me about the dub was its treatment of religion was rather inconsistnent when you think about it. Like the dub had no problem mentioning that Raye worked at a temple as a priestess, but would changes the names of the Messiah and the Holy Grail, and made it look like Raye's spir...

I always wondered why Darien was on that train, anyway. Some of my favorite funny dub lines: Episode 30. "He is Tuxedo Mask, I don't believe it." It's just the way Serena delivers this line that cracks me up. Another one of my favorites is in episode 33. "You must not slurp, slurping will not be tol...

As far as I'm aware in the subbed anime or in the manga, there is no explanation, but in PGSM, their hair changes color and style when they transform from what it was in their secret identities.

I don't know the exact reason why Mixx used the DiC names in the English manga, but I think it may have to do with how anime and manga wasn't very popular back when the Sailor Moon manga was first released in English. Back then the Sailor Moon anime was more popular with kids who had only experience...

For a change of pace, I'm actually reading a non-fiction book for a change, and I've started on reading God Is Not Great by Christopher Hitchens. I'm also nearly finished with reading The Amber Spyglass by Phillip Pullman.

Re: A Sailor Moon Re-Dub (Sorry if posted before)

The only problem with their DVD's were that there are no english subtitles (who knows why; I know that Both SailorStars & the Live-Action DVD's don't have any english subtitles at all. Can someone confirm for me if the first four seasons & the movies have them please, thanks.). There are no English...

What if Ail had gotten the part of the prince and Usagi the part of Snow white? I think En would have just done the same thing Ali did and send a monster to interrupt the play. What if Rei's grandpa fell for an old lady he met at the shrine? Rei's grandpa would become Kimura-sensei from Azumanga Da...

I just recently watched the Tin Man mini-series and I have to admit that it was actually pretty good.

One thing that I noticed was how the story about the Legendary Lovers and the lake monster in episode 40 paralleled the story of Serenity and Endymion's past. I wonder if this parallel was intentional?
