PostSubject: sailor moon abridged   8th January 2012, 6:10 pm

I don't think there's a sailor moon abridged discussion on here. I looked through search couldn't find it. I also wasn't sure where to put this either. Seeing how it's fan work really doesn't belong under the anime section, right? Anyway so how do guys feel about sailor moon abridged? At first I thought it was hilarious! Then they got to the R arch and did the R movie. Now I don't find them funny anymore. The jokes are getting old and kind of wish they stopped after the first arch.

I like it up until Sailor Mars comes in. I can't stand the yelling.

There are many people doing an abridged series so I'm confused as to which one you are talking about...

Sorry, I wasn't aware that there were more Sailor Moon abridges. It was the one made by Megami33 and her friends.

Here's a link.

I wanted to like this, I really did, but it's not really all that good in my opinion. It seems like they rely way too much on fandom stereotypes to progress through the series with an occasional joke about how bad the dub was. They just picked one extreme thing about the characters and decided that would be the joke and then it just isn't funny anymore. Mars is a demon worshiper and Venus is a slut. Really?

Dragonball Z Abridged manages to use some of those jokes, but mainly relies on inconsistencies in the story as well as over used things (like transformations) to push through and make something really special. The characters pretty much remain true to who they are while poking fun at them. That and it's just edited so beautifully that SMA really just pales in comparison. I know they put a lot of effort into their series, but it just comes up short.

That's the way I feel it should work with an abridged series. SMA I think is popular because of the things they do at the cons they attend, like the one year they all cosplayed as parodies of the senshi and the fact that Megami33 is a part of Team Four Star.

Making Venus Slut has always bothered me. I don't even know where they go that from. As for Mars being a demon worshiper. I have no opinion on that, but her voice kind of bother me. It just sounds painful to talk like that.

I stopped watching it after a few episodes from the R arch. They kept using the same jokes and just got boring. I think they're doing the S movie. I am going to watch that because I want to see what did to the Outers. Innocentvenus, I agree with your statement about Team Four Star.

I tried to watch teh first episode. I really did, but it was just so...blah. the voices were grating on my ears and the jokes really weren't that funny. I'm pretty sure the BF and I could come up with something better, imo. (also it helps that my bf doesn't like sailor moon that much so like i bet he could really think of some hilarious shit, plus he's just a pretty funny person one of the main reasons i love him XD).

I also heard just so much about stuff like the Venus Slut and using bitch and...just...yeah.

Also if an abridged series isn't up to the quality of TFS DBZA then well...I'll have an even harder time enjoying it. XD TFS really set the standard on these anime abridged parodies.

Well I have to agree with everything you said Small Lady, except for the fact I couldn't come up with something better myself since I consider I have no sense of humour at all. Actually people laugh at my jokes but I don't think I am funny LOL

For the voices, my ears really couldn't stand it.

I think you are indeed a natural very funny person Small Lady. Especially when we are in the chatroom, out of nowhere you always say something that makes me laugh. It was mostly true the day you were explaning your ``how to make a grilled cheese sandwich`` to Roro. It was hillarious and both my cheeks and belly hurted like hell since I couldn't stop laughing. Don't you ever change Small Lady, you are lovely!

At time when I saw this it was before Team Four Star and the only main abridged series out there were LK's Yugioh, MascoX and Vegeta(a bunch numbers I can't remember), and Laniaptor's Yu Yu Hakasho so to me it was funny. Now, when I look back it's not as funny anymore. However, I did enjoy their parody over that horrible Dic's promo commercial of Sailor Moon.

I only liked the part where they made of Chibibusa being pink haired and red eyed. I won't say much because I don't want to spoil it. I only liked the first three episodes and that's it.

I watched only part of one episode. As others have said here, I didn't find the constant yelling and vulgarities to be funny. Vulgar humor is generally better suited for punctuating a comedic point; Team Four Star is especially effective in making such jokes. But if you yell, scream, and drop F-bombs every other line, it quickly becomes stale and the humor---whatever it may have been---is quickly lost in the substandard delivery.

I have the impression SMA became popular primarily through the tight networking of the Abridged community and the fact it was the only halfway decent Abridged version of Sailor Moon.

Too true, after SMA I just didn't want to watch any other abridged versions for that very reason you stated.

I forgot how I found it, but remember before them there was a guy doing one and he only got two episodes out. He was pretty good. I kind of wish he didn't stop.

I... I actually got into Sailor Moon because of Megami33's abridged series. I watched it back in 2008 and got curious about the series, and well, here we are now. xD;

So yeah, I quite like the SMA folk, they seem like nice people and while their episodes lately have been not as funny as they used to be, I still find them enjoyable.

That's really cool,TheNerdetteKara! That happened to my friend too! Or at least I think it did...I knew she was watching the dub at some point in time.

They have very few good parts.
Rei's yelling is horrid. I think they could have portrayed the characters better minus the ridiculous stereotypes.

I...love SMA. To me, it's funny in a really weird way. It's kind of like, when you love your friend, it's okay to call them names and poke fun at them because you love them and you don't really mean it to be mean, and you're both okay with it. But when somebody else talks to your friend like that it's out of line.

I feel like that's Megami's relationship with Sailor Moon. I know the SMA crew made that fabulous Sailor Moon movie short, so you know they love the fandom and the series as a whole. So they're making fun of it in a loving way.

Also, I just find it really funny.

Oh, yes. I totally understand and agree with the sentiment. I love ragging on series that I enjoy, especially with friends. I don't believe any Moonie really takes issue with that particular matter. I personally just find the comedic style to be somewhat of a one-trick pony. :/

I used to love SMA. It was one of the reasons I really started to get into Sailor Moon. I still think it was great during most of their version of Classic. Then it just... really went downhill :/ I can handle some vulgar humor if it is genuinely funny, but it just got way more vulgar and way less funny to me. I stopped watching altogether after the second episode of R when apparently all the sailor senshi were raped at some point offscreen? The idea of the sailor senshi being violated that way was so unsettling to me that I just couldn't watch anymore.

I enjoy Sailor Moon Abridged, but I admit to being biased. I have hung out with the SMA crew a few times and have experienced their passion for Sailor Moon firsthand. I really think that it takes true fans to be able to make some of the jokes they do. Their pokes at some of the flaws of the dub are hilarious to me. But I do understand that humor is subjective, and it may not work for everyone.

probably from Venus is the roman name for Aphrodite and Aphrodite is the goddess of love.

Anyway, I loved abridged, it made me and my brothers laugh Laughing

I used to be obsessed with SMA, and I still have a fond spot for it, but I honestly have to say it just isn't that funny anymore. Like Yami said, they really went downhill in the R season. It just isn't that funny and the jokes are stale. It seems like they keep rehashing the same jokes over and over.

Honestly, the only abridged series I like is Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged. The best part? I don't even LIKE Yu-Gi-Oh. I never even watched it. All I have are a few memories of watching my older brother watch it. And I STILL find it hilarious. I've laughed at every single episode and all of the specials. It's because littlekuriboh picks the scenes he wants first, and comes up with jokes for them later on. I think the SMA crew comes up with the jokes first, and then picks the scenes later. Hopefully that makes sense. I just feel like Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged and littlekuriboh are extremely effectual in that they can make somebody who's not even a fan of the original series laugh their lungs out.

But I don't really blame SMA. There are only a couple of good abridged series out there. I just feel like the series could do much better in the hands of more capable people.

And this sounds extremely egocentric but I can't help but feel I could do a better job. XD

@Cosmos: I felt as though they went stale awhile, too. In this new 50th episode, I laughed really really hard. I felt as though they refreshed themselves.

@ Lust- I watched the 50th episode too, and unfortunately, it didn't elicit any laughs from me. True, I feel like it was way better than any of the other R season episodes, but it just didn't mesh with me.
