Day 20: Which arc is the most rewatchable? Is it also your favorite arc?

SuperS. I wouldn't call it my absolute favorite but it's definitely up there and has a special place in my heart.

Day 26: Funniest moment or episode?
Me and my sister are musicians, albeit I haven't played the trumpet in years now though. we never got to see it originally but after watching the episode with the jazz musician it's one of our favorites because it was so funny. xD Ami's first appearance was also pretty funny......we're smart people. xD

Day 27: Did any moment in the anime make you cry? If so, which one?

The events leading up to the final battle against Beryl, I was so invested into knowing the characters of the inner senshi that watching them die was very painful for me. GC's 90's Sailor Moon Anime 30 Day Challenge! - Page 8 2869872805

Day 23: If you were trying to get a friend into Sailor Moon, but could only show them one episode, what episode would you show and why?

The Battle in a Demonic Dimension! The Sailor Senshi's Bet. It's a well-rounded, wacky episode that's one of my favorites.

Day 24: Have you seen all 200 episodes of the anime? If yes, was it worth the time?

Yes and yes, it was very much worth it. I didn't think I would be able to get through the whole thing when first starting out but sure enough I did. I consider it quite the accomplishment on my part considering my poor attention span and how many anime beforehand I never ended up finishing.

It's the final countdown!!!!

Day 28: Was the Sailor Moon anime ahead of its time, perfect for its time, or behind its time?

Well and truly ahead of its time. I can only really speak from the point of view of an Australian otaku, the rare breed that we seem to be. ^^;

Sailor Moon became popular at a very unusual time; it grew while competing with wildly different anime at the time such as Dragon Ball Z and Pokémon. I learnt from one of my anime friends living in America that the industry itself was having a bad time getting any global traction in the 70s and 80s, many amine were trying to muster some support by creating stories set outside of Japan - if you've ever read articles about how Australia doesn't exist in anime I'll just drop the MAL links to Lady Georgie and Kazoku Robinson Hyouryuuki. I'm still trying to find a way to see these. Even Sailor Moon briefly created the side story of Sailor V and put her in London prior to returning to Tokyo.

So when Sailor Moon did become popular in Japan and syndicate into the global market their probably wasn't a lot of expectation for just how well received the anime would be. I've mentioned this a few times before but during the time of the DiC dub here Australia wasn't in the best place to accept it, having to deal with a wave of anti-Asianism and a strong masculine identity - a sentiment that is regularly challenged on Sailor Moon. Challenging such strong issues, action anime and leaving a mark on a generation of young kids and adults. Is Sailor Moon ahead of its time? The scripts were cheesy sometimes but the stories were thought out - albeit not all the time - and the messages were true and valuable. Sailor Moon needs to be aired today, it was certainly ahead of the 90s.

Day 25: Favorite UsaxMamo moment?

Probably the scene when they were alone in the Starlight Tower elevator together, where Mamoru tells Usagi about his past and Usagi reveals a bit of her feelings towards him.

Day 29: What are your thoughts on Usagi and Rei's relationship in the anime?

Complex. I do like the conflict the characters created but I personally don't like the idea of a friendship like that. If I wrote the Rei character she wouldn't be so jealous or hostile in general towards Usagi, but that's just me.

Day 1: How were you first introduced to the anime and which episode was it?

In 1999 or so when I was about 10, Cartoon Network was showing Sailor Moon (as well as Dragon Ball Z, Reboot, and some Johnny Quest show) in their afternoon Toonami block, and occasionally late at night. I can't quite remember which episode I saw first, especially since my parents didn't approve of anime (or of "Eastern Culture" in general) so I only watched in secret. But the first episode I remember any of must've been the finale Jadeite episode, because I definitely remembered the airplanes. I barely understood what was going on XD

I tried again by downloading one episode, painstakingly on 28k dialup internet in tiny resolution, in 2003. It was the first episode, subtitled, which I liked but downloading and storing them was too arduous at that time, and I didn't find the DVDs for sale (plus I was still worried about my parents at that point).

I think there was a failed third attempt to start on the show where I saw the first five episodes of the DiC dub...?? I forget when that was.

I finally started watching for real in 2011 though, on DVD with subtitles from the beginning, in my own apartment, and saw it through.

Must... resist!... Must... not... answer all other days' questions in one giant unending megapost...!

Day 26: Funniest moment or episode?


Seeking Friends! Chibi Moon's Actions, Episode 104. It's chock full of chuckles all animated by my favorite animator Ikuko Itoh, and had I not rewatched it recently which reminded me of such things, I'd have picked Minako's Two-Timing episode again for this category.

Day 30: If you could change one thing about the anime, what would it be and how do you think it would affect the continuity?

I love the idea of Chibiusa and time paradoxes but I didn't like the execution of them in Sailor Moon. I'd personally rework the stories involving Chibiusa and her future presence and tidy up the timeline better. I'm not aiming to affect continuity so much as making the stories more coherent and less prone to plot holes.

Day 27: Did any moment in the anime make you cry? If so, which one?

There were certainly some moments which made me emotional but I don't think I've ever cried at any before.

Day 28: Was the Sailor Moon anime ahead of its time, perfect for its time, or behind its time?

Perfect for its time if not a bit ahead considering characters like Haruka and Michiru.

Day 2: Favorite episode?

This is a tough choice! I'm going to have to go with either Episode 24: Naru's Cry! Spoiler Spoilers For Spoiler, or Episode 26: Bring a Smile to Naru's Face! Usagi's Friendship.

Both have wonderful heroics and heartbreaking moments, with the second being a little more hopeful and funny and the former being... well. (Honorable mention for Episode 23: Wish Upon a Shooting Star! Naru's Pure Love... and maybe 31, too... and 45?... okay, this is getting out of hand XD)

Episode 24 is where I really went from just liking the show, to being something unforgettable to me, and being so attached to it. It hit me on a very personal level (let's just say I really identified with Naru), and it also is when the show really has it's first wham episode, showing you just how serious it can really be, as well as establishing the anime's wonderful penchant for sympathetic villains.

Episode 26 follows up really nicely on 24 (which is nice after seeing many shows that never get around to this type of followup, especially for recurring cast members); while not being able to set everything right, it certainly bandages the wounds. (Plus 26 introduces the Orgel, which is my favorite object in the show, and has some intriguing Rei moments that I think highlight how much she grows in later episodes; and Boxsy is absolutely hilarious).

I love both, and I don't think I can choose between them!

But there are also so many wonderful episodes after those, I feel like picking some bonus (lesser) favorites from each season!

R - Episode 47: Moon Revived! The Mysterious Aliens Appear
This might seem like a copout answer (honorable mention to Episode 86 - Spoiler Spoilers! Wiseman's Trap), but, this episode had so much on it's shoulders and it lived up perfectly. The somber ending is perfect, and beautiful. I also love the moment when Usagi poses, then wonders what she's doing. And on top of that, it's a wonderful Luna and Artemis episode, as they try so hard to handle it themselves. Plus Umino gets hit with a flute (Okay, not really that part,  XD I'm laughing with you, Umino, not at you, I swear!! Except he's not laughing...)

S - Episode 120: Invasion From an Alternate Dimension! The Mystery of Mugen Academy
I need to rewatch S so I might reassess this, but, I really loved the backstory reveal of Professor Tomoe and Hotaru. I also love the dramatic growth for Chibi-Usa, standing up for Hotaru and even coming into conflict with Sailor Pluto, who she's previously been very close with. I'm not completely positive this was my single favorite but I remember it being a really good one. Also, Mimete goes out like a chump, and Tellu gets one moment to be intriguing and spooky. Plus, We get to see Professor Tomoe being a nicer boss than typical Beryl or Rubeus fair, because when he thinks it's time to take Mimete off the job, he tries to do it gently instead of, say, killing her or ordering her death himself. Unfortunately, the Witches Five don't play by his rules, but it's a nice change of pace from previous (and future) villains, and another reason I like him so much.

SuperS - Episode 149: Mirror of Dreams! Amazons' Final Stage
Although the Amazon Trio arc is possibly my least favorite overall arc, this episode (and the one before it, and a couple other really fun moments) really turns that around. Before this, I had found myself, for the first and only time in the series, wanting to get on with the next minibosses and be done with these- but after this episode, I was sad they didn't appear again! I feel much more sympathetic to the Trio here in spite of the revelation of where they came from and how little they really know, and how they were more or less created for this job. They way the three of them all grow and change in this episode is wonderful, and we see an act of overt kindness from Helios, too, which is great. Plus Usagi is pretty nice to Fish Eye in a nice scene. Definitely a favorite.

Stars - Episode 197: Ruler of the Galaxy, Galaxia's Threat & 198: Disappearing Stars! The End of Massive Spoilers
Oh man. There's a lot of really heavy moments in Stars, but this part has to be my favorite. It's very much an uninterrupted two parter out of the arc, so I don't really distinguish between them. The twist in 197 managed to genuinely surprise me, this close to the end of the series! And the conclusion to it in 198 is no less hard-hitting. This one is heartbreaking and wonderful, and I feel like it perfectly fits not only Stars' story buildup, but also follows up on S in a way. The stakes feel so high in this entire finale arc, and I think this moment (along with the episode before) is it's highest peak. (Also, why do the rainbow sparkle fades get to me every time in this show...?)



Short answer though: still 24 and 26.

Day 29: What are your thoughts on Usagi and Rei's relationship in the anime?

Their constant bickering got pretty stale, it would've been more humorous had it been less frequent.

Day 3: Least favorite episode?



Although there's no episode I hate, After some thinking, I'm going to go with Episode 138: Drive to Heaven! Love Riding on the Car of Dreams.

It was a close call, though, against Episode 139: Try for the Best of Japan! The Worries of a Beautiful Girl Swordsman and Episode 142: Mansion of Secrets! The Menu of Love to You. These three are the least good examples of the Trio arc to me, where it really feels drawn out and episodic and is focusing on total randos, and in each of these cases, I didn't even like the story about the randos very much.

The reason I choose episode 138 is that it feels unusually depressing. Hawk's Eye does something absolutely deplorable (probably the worst we see of him) by dressing up semi-similarly to a widow's dead husband to target her, but they're also still trying to play him for laughs when this isn't funny (it could've been played for sympathy, as him misguidedly wanting to help her by "being" her husband, but, it didn't come off that way). The plot about Natsumi (the widow; no relation to Natsumi Ginga) trying to fix the junker car when her own health isn't in good shape, and when the car seems beyond salvaging, is weird and doesn't really sit with me as anything inspirational, just kind of bleak. The animation directed by Masahiro Ando is pretty bad here, too.

On top of that stuff, another peeve for me is the drama about Mamoru being mistaken for cheating on Usagi, which is the deadest of dead horses by this point in the show (although it's less exaggerated here than in Usagi the Ninja, which gets a pass because it has some pretty funny parts and the final appearance of Yuuichirou... but I generally find Usagi's jealousy in SuperS feels like character regression after the maturity she was showing about it in S and later parts of R), and that aspect is made worse that it's Ami, who should be smarter than this, jumping to the conclusion.  It seems out of character for Ami.

The only thing particularly cool about 138 is that it's fun for Ami to play mechanic for a while. (But apparently her skill is limited...)

I still don't hate episode 138, but it's the least appealing of the series that I remember. Sailor Moon's worst day is still a pretty passable day, honestly, as I've seen far worse in other shows. And fortunately, the ending of the Amazon Trio arc was much, much better.




Regarding the infamous plesiosaur episode from R (67: The Sea! An Island! Vacation! The Senshi Relax)... that one's certainly awkward too, and itseems the most cheaply made of the series, with it's maximum usage of transformation and attack stock footage and Usagi attacking... a volcano?? Although I guess that part's sort of a cool idea and it's interesting to see an episode without a monster. But everyone acts sorta weird, and a lot of still shots.

And yet, I really kind of like it anyway! It was so jarringly cheaper and out of place that it was hilarious to me, and I can kind of dig having secret plesiosaurs even if that's kind of random for the setting. Plus, it feels like Chibi-Usa wrote the episode herself as some sort of fanfiction of her own life, which is kind of amazing. So it's pretty bad, but I have a weird soft spot for it.

Also, the first subtitled version of 67 that I found (since it wasn't on the ADV release) included such great lines as "Chibi-Usa, did you come here to get cool?" and "Oh, she has become shark food", gloriously amplifying the awkwardness. So it's really still kinda fun, even if it doesn't live up to the quality of other episodes.

Day 30: If you could change one thing about the anime, what would it be and how do you think it would affect the continuity?

To make a long story short, I'll have to second what Ktenshi said for her answer to this question which is giving Mamoru his powers and crystal from the manga. That alone would have made a lot of difference, and for the better I think.

And with that I'm now done with the challenge.

I've been mulling this over for a while now, but I've finally decided to go through with this, I'm bored, so. Think I'll finish this in time too, as organised and compulsive as I am, it should be over by 21st July. Well, unless I get bored and I drop it, it all depends on my whims. Anyways.

Day 1: How were you first introduced to the anime and which episode was it?

In early 2006. I was browsing through the television guide and I saw Sailor Moon in one of the programme slots. It was Ami's introduction episode, episode 8, well, episode 5 going by the original dub. I was hooked instantly and I followed it faithfully for a couple of months.
