Favorite Intro Sequence of all seasons and dubs

Post by smfan423 » Sun Jun 01, 2008 3:37 am

So what intro sequence is your favorite out of all seasons and I am including any and all dubs including English, German, Turkish, Chinese, Lithuanian, etc.

I must say even though the Lithuanian version looks like it was used for all five seasons that background sounds excellent for Sailor Moon. So I chose it, followed closely by original Sailor Moon Classic season intro (though this may change as I still haven't seen any of S, SuperS or Stars subbed yet).

Original:
I'd have to say the S or Super S seasons beacuase those openings are more bright and I like the way Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon is written on both of these, they're very fluent in colour and to me, have the most appealing animation.

European:
The Italian openings. Mainly Classic, R and Stars because they have the most appealing songs. The clips are also put together well to make the opening fluent.

I do still like the NA opening because the song is catchy and I always remembered this one growing up.
Ross: You got me a cola drink.
Chandler: And a LEMON LIME!

They're all great, but my favourites are the second Classic one, Second R one, third Super One, and the Stars one.

I've only seen the North American and French dub openings so I don't have a favourite of any other than the original.

I'd have to say my favorite openings are original Supers and Stars. Supers felt way more fantasy and I really enjoyed it. And Stars was a nice change after 4 seasons.

I can't pick one favorite....I'd have to say I like the second R opening, the third S opening, and the second Stars opening. If I had to choose a least favorite I would say the first Classic opening (it felt like just a bunch of Usagis and flower petals until the end). I can't say I have a favorite other than the Japanese openings because the only dub I've seen is the English one, which wasn't terrible, but not appealing.

The opening of the Japanese version of Sailor Moon R is the one I really like the best.

There's two different R openings. Unless you meant both. I guess you could say there's 3 if you count the four-way opening from the last episode.

The very first S opening, the one before Uranus and Neptune shorten the attack scenes, and you get to see what appear to be Mars Snake Fire and the other attacks on its level...

Sailor Moon SuperS opening 2. It was just.... the one that I grew to like.
My favourite Cardcaptor Sakura quote *contains spoilers*:

Sakura: I love you Yukito-san!
Yukito: I love you too, but the one you love most isn''t me.
Sakura: *looks confused*
Yukito: You love your father right?
Sakura: Yes.
Yukito: And what about me?
Sakura: I love you.
Yukito: Aren''t the feelings quite similar?
Sakura: *realizes* They are. You have known for awhile haven''t you?
Yukito: Yes, you have always loved me as if I were a part of your family and I am grateful for that.
Sakura: Is there someone you love?
Yukito: Yes
Sakura: Is it..brother? (Touya)
Yukito: *eyes widen and then he smiles* Yes, I don''''t know what I would do without Toya. He made sure I didn''''t disappear.
Sakura: I''m sure he loves you too! He did everything to make sure you didn''t disappear! But if brother ever does anything to hurt my dearest Yukito-san, I will teacher him a lesson!
Yukito: *puts hand on her cheek* Thank you, Sakura-chan. When you find the one you love, if he ever hurts you, I will teach him a lesson.

Id say its a toss up between the Japanese opening of the first season and the opening for the Stars Season. I loved the song in Stars, but I loved the imagry in the first season

that's what it is for me. I love the Sailor Stars song and I love the psychedelic imagery of the first classic opening.

My all-time favoritehas to be the very first Japanese intro. I loved how everything looked like a Salvador Dali painting. I really liked the scene where Usagi, Ami, and Rei appear as nude silhouettes with cloaks. Overall it was a very "artsy" opening.

Second has to be a tie with both Sailor Moon R intros. I like the focus on Usagi, especially when she's "with" Sailor Moon. I especially like how Ail and En were represented with "masks". Once again, very artistic. The second intro was just beautiful. We have beautiful animation by Ikuko Ito, and again we have some Dali influences. I especially like how Pluto, Chibiusa, and The Black Moon family appear.

And finally, I really like the dub opening to Sailor Moon S included on the edited tapes. It's a neat showcase of various clips from S (along with some... SuperS clips). It's problemly the best opening used in the dub. Too bad it was only used in the edited tapes.

I like the intro of Stars best. With the new song, it was refreshing. I also liked the intro to Sailor Moon S, and all 3 of the movie intros.
