Shut up and take my money! Also last episode needs a seizure warning.

In the 17 years since I started partaking in anime viewings, I will not lie when I say this is the 1st review I have ever written. I just never felt I needed to write a review until this moment.
From the first time I saw it on Toonami, I have never stopped loving the Sailor Moon series. What can I say, I have a love for shows that use the 'monster of the week formula'. I will not let my nostalgia bias this review though.

Sailor Moon is a show that is over 20 years old and was animated in the old tradition cel style. This means the quality may not be as superior as the newly rebooted series, SM Crystal. In some of the later episodes like episode 44 during a talk with Kunzite, the picture shakes up and down. Yet due to the animation process being shot with a camera and not done on a computer I can overlook it.

Now as for content, this show I said is over 20 years old, but I won't spoil a thing. This volume follows the Sailor Guardians on the search for the reborn Moon Princess and the Silver Crystal while fighting the Dark Kingdom to prevent the sun from being enveloped by dark shadows for all time.
Even though I just summarized the basic story into one sentence, there are more plot points like new character introductions, betrayals, and back stories. This is all spread out over 23 more episodes with severely altered canon. This is in part to when Sailor Moon first aired in Japan, the manga it was based off of had yet to be finished. So as a common practice with mostly all anime produced for TV, Studio Toei who animated the series created several plot points that are anime exclusive. Seasoned veterans of Sailor Moon will know that I speak of the Rainbow Crystal and Bewitched Endymion arcs. 1st time viewers may be turned off by them, but if they choose to follow through, a satisfying, climactic finale will be their reward.

Speaking of the final episode, I never remembered the flashes of sometimes white and other times red and purple being so abundant during that deciding battle. I am not susceptible to epilepsy or seizures but as a warning to those who can't handle strobe lights, just don't watch the last episode at night in a dark room. I got a headache during those 4 minutes. Still the picture quality is not at all grainy on the TV I viewed it on.

The scripts are more professionally done and I can't complain with the job the new actors are doing. I actually felt emotion and cried this time when Nephrite dies because Naru had a voice this time that wasn't insufferable.
Stephanie Sheh manages to capture the moments of a crying Usagi without it ever being intolerable as opposed to former Sailor Moon voice actress Linda Ballantyne *shudder.*

All around this set looks and sounds superior to the original DiC releases.
I cannot compare VIZ's release to the ADV subbed sets because I never bought them, if only because I prefer to watch and not read my anime.

So I am eternally grateful to you VIZ. Keep on rolling them out and you'll get my money every time.

Judge by what it IS, not what it could never have been

I can't understand why the other review gave this 2 stars. Criticizing something for being a part of it's time is WRONG. Sailor Moon is not my favorite anime by far, but within the framework it does a good job.

I found the ending incredibly moving. Sometimes a story about a less than perfect hero somehow managing to pull off a victory is better than any amount of superhero saves the day.

Getting better and better

The 2nd half to season 1 and it’s just as good as when it started. A top notch and classic magical girl anime that I feel can be watched by men and women, young and old. It’s got great characters and a story that goes deeper than you think. I have been enjoying Viz’s new dub of this show and everything sounds and looks great, albeit a little fuzziness here and there. And the 2 episode finale really caught me off guard. It’s not about monster of the week with teen romance no more. We’re gettin serious now. I gotta say, this really moved up the show as a whole in my view. A great ending to the first season. Hopefully the next seasons will follow. Recommended if you haven’t seen this show before or want to relive it.

Still going strong!

A great follow up to the last volume. I enjoy the different personalities working together to their common goal, even if they often get into conflicts with each other.

I can't stress enough, this is a great anime. I'm one of the many male fans that also exist. This anime has inspired me so much that I was thrilled to finally add a Sailor Moon figure to my room to remind me of Usagi's unconditional love and compassion for her friends, (as well as her enemies.) :)
