Heya, budding new fan here from the UK!

So, hey there. I'm a guy from the UK who's hoping to watch Sailor Moon and become a fan of the series in the process.




Background:

So, I've been aware of the series for a while, but I've never actually watched anything official from the franchise itself, half because I've only been trying to get into anime in general in the last 1-2 years, and half because, from what I've heard, Sailor Moon kinda dissapeared from the UK sometime in the mid-2000s, of which I was only a wee baby at the time. I've now put an effort into gaining access to the series by buying the following DVD to see if I would be interested in the series, which should be here by the end of the month:

I WOULD put a link in, but i cant at the moment.





"Wait, that's a Reigon 1 DVD, and you live in Reigon 2. How could you watch that?"

I'll use VLC Media Player on my PC, which can play DVDs reigonless. If push comes to shove and that doesn't work, I'll use one of my PC's limited amount of reigon changes to change it to reigon 1, Since PC game DVD are apparently reigonless and I have other reigon 2 players anyway.




It's not JUST anime I'm interested in...

I'm also a fan of video games (Currently playing a fair amount of Team Fortress 2 at the moment) and animation from the other side of the pond, ususally known as cartoons (I like me a bit of Ed, Edd n Eddy).




I hope you'll enjoy my presence!

Welcome to GC!!! I feel ya on the region problems, I swear I need a region 2 player so I can play my Japanese DVDs on a TV (I've never had a problem with playing DVDs from any region using VLC though, so hopefully that works for you, too! Plus if you have an HDMI cord, you can still get it on a big screen!)

What anime do you like other than (hopefully!) Sailor Moon? Are you a magical girl fan in general, or is this your first?

Well, I've taken a gander at other anime, although the only one I've finished is Gurren Lagaan. (Also I'm caught up on RWBY if you count that as one)

This isn't my absolute first magical girl anime, as I have gotten 5 episodes into HappinessCharge! PreCure as well, but I do want to get into those kind of series, so why not start with the most well-known one in the West?

Video game music? Nice! Have you heard any video game music composed by Kenji Ito, or any of the tracks from the SaGa series? (I own at least 40 albums from that series, no joke! I love the work that Ito has done for it!)


I would like to point out that GC has a Video Game Club! If you would like to learn more about it, you may do so here!

Welcome to the forums, btw!

Welcome to the forums! And I had no idea VLC media player was region less. You learn something new everyday.

It's great that we've got another videogame lover on the forums? Which platform do you play the most? I'm mostly on steam/PC. 

And edd edd n eddy is one of my favorite childhood cartoons! Do you like other cartoons from that era on cartoon network?

I guess so. For example, I just learned that Japan is region 2 as well!

I mainly PC game as well, but I do like some Nintendo as well.

From CN's own Cartoon Cartoons, EEnE's the only one I've seen in any full capacity, the others were simply before my time. Although I do want to give Codename: Kids Next Door a look in particular, and not just because I was born on the day the full series premiered. (Yes, that is actually true, I don't believe it either)

Also, a general thank you to all that said hi! I feel so welcome Smile

I.. haven't seen any of it yet. Did you read the first post properly?

Also, my name isn't that special. I just took part of my surname and stuck 'inator' on the end. (Shrug)

Depends on your preference really! I find the new dub is relatively ok. About on par with current dubs of anime. Nothing weird or bad but I didn't find it anything to sing home about either. If you don't mind reading subs and are used to hearing Japanese speaking people, then go for sub! I absolutely love the original Japanese VA cast and may or may not be biased towards it due to having so many years having to choose between the original Dic dub or hte Japanese. And Japanese always won lmao.

Also, welcome to gc! I hope you enjoy the series once you get the DVDs!

Hey! Welcome to the forum! Happy to see another gamer join the community. I'm Sephazon, former Miiverse community manager at Nintendo now living in Tokyo. ^^ I'd like to hear about what games you've played over the year.
