Since the new version of Sailor Moon is going to be aired in a few months time, iA, I decided to re-watch some of the Sailor Moon episodes. Even though I watched the anime when I was 4, I haven’t gotten bored of watching it again. I’ve seen the missing episodes that were in the Japanese version too ’cause the dubbed version didn’t include them. >_<
I know the opening theme song of Sailor Moon by heart. xD Fighting evil by moonlight. Winning love by daylight. Never running from a real fight… I recently noticed that in one of the scenes in the opening theme song in which Serena is running towards Tuxedo Mask, the background is that of Vincent Van Gogh‘s painting, The Starry Night.
Furthermore, after watching the first four episodes of the dubbed version, which is before Amy aka Sailor Mercury is introduced, I realized that Luna has a sense of humor and Tuxedo Mask‘s lines are so cheesy that they make me cringe and laugh. Hahaha! I also love the “Sailor Moon Says” segment. I always found that part inspiring…a lesson for all viewers regardless of what age they are.
Let’s watch Sailor Moon together! =P
Episode 1: A Moon Star Is Born
Underachieving schoolgirl Serena learns from a talking cat named Luna that she is destined to become the heroic Soldier of Love and Justice, Sailor Moon. She saves Molly‘s mother from the Dark Kingdom‘s forces and meets the snobby Darien and the mysterious Tuxedo Mask.
Melvin: “Look! I didn’t study and I only got a 95.” LMAO!
Serena: “I wish I could be like Sailor V. She’s so beautiful and smart. Something exciting is always happening in her life not like mine.” I hear fans say this quite often when admiring their favorite star! What you see on the outside isn’t always what it’s like on the inside. Sailor V has a sad past. She’s my favorite character from the Sailor Moon series! ^^
Episode 2: Talk Radio
Ms. Haruna and Molly submit love-letters to a late-night radio show. When they fall into a coma-like sleep, Serena must investigate the radio station undercover.
Jadeite speaking on the Love Line for the purpose of collecting energy from the humans reminds me of K-Pop stars/K-Pop companies saying cheesy things so they can have our money. LOOOL. EVIL!
Sailor Moon: “Tuxedo Mask, thank you! He’s so handsome…and mysterious.” Bleh…can’t believe I once said something like that about SOMEONE. Now I know how silly I looked saying that in one of my early blogs posts. *smacks head*
Episode 3: Slim City
Serena gains a couple of pounds and starts to obsess about her weight. Jadeite starts a health club to drain energy out of people. Serena and her friends sign up after seeing how much weight Ms. Haruna has lost. Serena discovers tanks in the basement which are sucking the life energy out of her friends.
Sailor Moon‘s daydreams are too cheesy. I can’t. They make me cringe. =P I know someone like Darien in real…very annoying. -_-
Sailor Moon Says: “Please remember, real beauty really does comes from inside.” ^^
Episode 4: So You Want To Be A Superstar
By making a youma possess a human celebrity, Jadeite draws a huge crowd of would-be superstars. Serena tries to juggle her duties as Sailor Moon with her desire to be popular and famous.
Luna: “Besides, being in show business is serious work. It’s all too strange. Too suspicious. And look at what’s happening between you and your friends.” O_O Wow…Luna really knows.
Sailor Moon Says: “It’s fun imagining being a movie star or a rock-and-roll idol. All that attention, money, and fame, but it’s no good trying to be somebody you’re not. What makes a real star isn’t about fame or money, but being the best person you can be and feeling good about yourself. Be a star in your own life, that’s what really counts.” It’s like she spoke the words right out of my mouth. xD
