The US Version of Sailor Moon was dumbed down severely, and therefore, APPEALED to kids much younger than the Japanese version. ...whose manga ran in Nakayoshi, a magazine aimed towards 3 to 8 year old girls . The same audience, incidentally, the English version also appealed to, to some extent. I ...

How about the commcercials for Sony's PSP, which mimic an art style similar to the ones on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim shows (i.e.; ugly and half-assed)?I find those to be incredibly stupid, and Sony still fails to understand that some people play video game systems for GAMES.

Team Ninja was bought out by Microsoft much like Rare was in 2003. So they can only make games for the X-BOX and X-BOX 360. Uhh... Team Ninja is very much part of Tecmo, which, as far as I know, is independent of Microsoft. In fact, while Fatal Frame was an XBox exclusive, Fatal Frame II & III are ...

The anime. I liked how much more developed the villians were in the anime, and some of them (Beryl's generals, the Amazon Trio) are some of my favorite anime villians. I also liked the Japanese voice acting a lot (except for Tomozawa Michie's Hino Rei), and I thought the art was clean and very pleas...

And, like Sailor Moon, Bandai will make Toei drag out the series as long as they make money off the toys. That's how Sailor Moon went on beyond R.

The instrumental and vocalised versions (even though I love Riyu Kosaka @[email protected]) are just too sugary for my tastes, and so is the song Love Love Sugar (another Riyu Kosaka song). Love Love Sugar is sung by Noria, another member of BeForU (and the only one who guess publicity in her native Japan sans Ri...

Yes, but as pointed out already, it's a really bad cover of it. Easily the worst song in the game.

I, too, have only seen the R. Kelly episode, and am afraid to watch anymore. The comic strip was awesome around the 1999-2002 era, but recently it's been pretty boring. And though I like the art of the show, I don't like the lack of animation, nor the constant swearing.

Aren't the 'Eternal' titles (sans Sailor Moon's) fan inventions, or do they really mention a "Eternal Sailor Mercury", etc., in the manga?

I played it. In Japanese (big mistake).

I defeated one monster, and that's all I could do. I didn't know how the English patch thing worked, so I never used it.

ADV's actresses have never been good in their dubs IMO. Their actors are far better than their actresses.

Sailor Moon != Ghost in the Shell. Bandai relies on putting extras in everything they have because, well, people aren't going to buy their products without some persuasion sans Gundam. Most of Bandai's releases are either cookie-cutter action/harme show....or, well, Gundam. Also, people still care a...

Go Nagai didn't happen to be the assistant to Tezuka Ozamu, did he? The guy who did Cyborg 009 was, and it wouldn't surprise me if he was too.

Decent audio quality would be nice. Even the original laserdiscs somewhat stumbled in that aspect.

I'd also like to see image remastering, and not feel like I'm watching a show from 1979 (although, for some odd reason, I think the faded colors and dust are part of the Sailor Moon charm).

Then I forgot about it, and when it was licensed it just looked like another Lain to me (I HATED Lain) Then I watched it...and was hooked.

Right-to-left, using the Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon volumes as the source material, as well as the standard paper they use in their manga. Anything else (character names, attack names, etc.) I could live with.

Nelvana tried to turn CCS into a boys' action show believing the series would get better ratings that way, but Dic actually kept in the "girlyness" of Sailor Moon, so they might actually leave the romance in CCS had they tried to dub it instead. I disagree. Optimum often made lines changed to avoid...
