There are really people who didn't discover their waifu in the 90's.
Venus was good, but I still loved Mars and Jupiter more.
Mars cause she speaks to my love of shrine girls while Jupiter was the wholesome girl one hopes to marry someday.
Pluto used to turn my dick into diamonds tho. probably where I got my love for longhaired christmas cakes, pic related.
Jeez, the more time it has been since I finished this show, the more sexually I start seeing these girls.
and i thought shaft neck was weird
great googly moogly
both are top tier
all sailor senshi are best
I'm not going to lie here. Minako was more than likely my favorite for as long as I can remember.
Who is best depends entirely on the individuals likes and dislikes. All of them are good waifus though. Except Saturn and Uranus for what should be obvious reasons.
To Minako lovers:
Why do you prefer her to Usagi? They literally look exactly the same, apart from hair style
I know the show has a lot of sameface in general but at least the others have height/eye color/hair color differences
Minako is single and cuter.
Literally and figuratively Mars
I want to bend Mars over.
That is the most fantastically scene that was wasted on virtual filler. They could have actually used this episode to explore her relationship with her absent father (which is brought up earlier) and/or come to terms with being a social fuck up for most of her life. Instead, it's just an awesome looking, but otherwise fluff scene.
No, this is just from a random SuperS episode. You should know by now that the actual series is way better than any of the OVAs or movies. The Hatsukoi special was based off a manga chapter, and has nothing anywhere near as good (Ami just has her shallow manga personality in it).
>Ami just has her shallow manga personality in it.
It was just a comedic side story. It didn't need any deep character development when the actual Dream arc had a chapter devoted to each girl.
Does anyone know if the Sailor V movie's director was based on anyone?
mah niggah, Venus was my first fap to anime as well
Exactly how how many dicks did Minako suck to get a movie deal
Depending on the animation quality of the episode, sometimes it is
It's awful, every time a SM thread appears I want to marathon it but never find the time to do so.
It's legit. Sailor Stars(season 5) episode 8.
Shit, I'll punch of a webm of it in a sec.
Here we go.
4chan doesn't like subs, but the first image shows what they're saying.
Sailor Moon, DragonBall Z and Pokemon would be the three shows most responsible for getting older millenials(i.e., 22-30) into anime.
She's mid tier.
Mercury = Mars > Venus > Jupiter > Moon
>When you're tall like me
those Japanese are so gosh darn cute. Like a nation of marmoset
Have we gotten a suitable replacement to host large, besounded webms after the original Pomf pomfed out?
I know pomf.cat, but it still has the message that still has a message that it's a work in progress and is dealing with limited space.
Still, some of the older webms I've uploaded seem to still be there.
Moon is the greatest in everything except the original version of the anime, in which she's the worst. It really sucks that it works out that way, since the anime is otherwise the best adaptation.
Even science agrees that Venus is hotter.
Pity Mercury is cuter overall though
I'm going to marry Usagi! And worship her yummy butt!
Do people like the Sailor V manga?
There always comments about wanting to see it get animated, but never anyone talking about the manga.
Because its a meme that people like the idea of. The idea of Minako getting spinoff episodes where she goes around fighting crime sounds great, but Naoko's manga is just pointless for the most part and few people really give a damn about it outside of random panels.
>Should I watch the new anime?
>the old one?
You should read the manga from the point where the princess is revealed, up to the end of that arc, once you get to that point in the anime. Trust me, you'll see why.
If I made a Sailor V anime, it probably wouldn't follow the manga at all, because, well, I have never read it, but also because I have a cool idea for it.
In my headcanon, being the first sailor soldier was just awful. She is all alone, she doesn't know what to do, and she is up against violent and sadistic enemies. The show will be about Minako bravely accepting that this may be the rest of her life.
I like this, because it fits the impression I got from that one episode when she was telling Usagi about how a dude once lobbed a grenade at her, and because I think it sets up her personality in Sailor Moon nicely. She has the most zest for life, and it would make sense if it's because she appreciates it more than anyone else that there are other sailor soldiers.
The anime would be just a short spin off series. It's a simple story that doesn't take very long to tell.
SM is super interesting
The old anime without question. But, should you watch Sailor Moon at all? I can't tell you.
In my case, I didn't know anything about it either when I first started watching it, but here I am, three months after finishing it, still depressed that it's over.
>But, should you watch Sailor Moon at all?
I feel like the best way to test this is to watch the episode where Ami is introduced first (ep 8 of the original). It's probably the best thing to use as an introduction/test as to whether you will see the rest of it as being worthwhile.
>mfw I apply for comfort for any tender girl
Did any of his other shows have direct references or nods to Mars?
I havent watched Penguindrum, but I dont recall any.
It seems like something he would have sneaked in at some point.
Let CJ explain it to u.
Did she have some kind of magic chant to summon thunder in the original, too? I always wondered.
She always said some kind spell in the German dub:
>Hör mich an Schutzplanet Jupiter. Ruf' die Wolken, erzeuge den Sturm und schick mir deinen Donner!
Which was kinda extremely weird.
Nope. It was just Jupiter and that#s why it was so strange.
>Heed my call, guardian planet Jupiter! Call the clouds, create the storm and send me your thunder!
Clashed with everything else, desu.
Zoisite is cute.
>All of the other Guardians are basically side characters that cease all development after their first appearance episodes, exceptions being of course Usagi, Mamoru, Chibiusa on the second half covering R/Black Moon Clan, and Setsuna (a little bit)
>adding to that, even the villains are not memorable at all and get unceremoniously killed off like nothing (especially disheartening for those who liked what they did with the Spectre Sisters in R anime)
>Story only really based on the mirakuru romansu with everything else being peripheral to that, and done in a boring and sort of cheesy way, at that
>stiff, bad animation and QUALITY, even with the BD fixes
>bland as hell music (supposedly the staff had it playing while they were animating which explains a lot)
I liked that they went more in depth with Usagi and Mamoru etc.'s past lives in the Moon Kingdom, and the sword thing in the final battle of the Dark Kingdom arc was pretty cool. But that's it. Watch, if you dare, otherwise don't touch it.
Oh, yeah, and also
>CG Pig Disgusting transformations. Even bit parodies within shows these days like Shokugeki no Soma anime's Magical Cabbage thing can afford 2D transformations and yet fucking Sailor Moon can't. Thx Toei.
Chibiusa/Chibi Moon got one though.
I have a few theories about the Sailor V manga which Naoko seems to hint to, and I hope an anime doesn't ruin them.
I think the Dark Agency are the people who joined Queen Beryl to fight against the Moon Kingdom. Their "true forms" don't look like youma, but very similar to the Shitennou that Metallia "altered" (Act 9).
Just in case anyone wasn't aware, "new-half" is Jap slang for transvestite.
Jupiter did the chant for supreme thunder in all versions.
Looks like either the S or SuperS movie.
Makoto and Minako are bae.
I wish I was half as cool as Rei
That guy was so cringeworthy
>Rei treats him like shit
>he grovels at her feet anyway
>even the monster of the week asks him why the fuck he does that when she treats him like shit
>guy says he doesn't mind being treated like shit because he loves her
I don't think even fedora whiteknights are this deranged.
Yeah it's great for faces. I love Ami's blush.
Rei's face after getting the coffee dumped on her head is pretty fun, too.
Jesus christ why is every single Senshi without exception such a semen demon?
OMG！ For real?
yeah despite sailor moon being perhaps the worst character it dealt with what girls want to deal with: real life, growing up, relationship building and toxic relationships
good atmosphere despite the utterly atrocious production values
USAGI is the best. I really loved the chemistry of those kawaii chicks.
I would say that Usagi is my favorite character. It's how relatable she is; we're all nerds, there's a little Usagi in all of us to some capacity. And when she rises above that, it makes her so much more the better.
Isn't that the one where Venus unbirthed Jupiter and turned her into a pig, or the one where they all turned into snails?
Mars = That girl you have spite sex with
Mercury = Nerdy girl who has FREAKY FETISHES
Venus = That top shelf pussy that becomes boring after it's finally obtained
Moon = That girl you fuck in high school and foolishly get tied down to without knowing any better
Jupiter = WIFEY
nah I can recall one where Jupiter was trying to get out of the forest and got trained by an older man the whole way out.
And one where Mars got fucked by an old man in a shrine.
Black Dog's style is really nice tho
thank you anon
the shitty thing is girls who are in between
sluts KNOW and are intelligent, they will force you to wear protection
sub girls who seem like they don't fuck around, they fuck around and get aids
the more you niggas know
>Three years old
Black Dog proved to me good Sailor Moon material could exist. All I had at the time was all of that crude western shit and the infamous Dragonmoon X bile.
>it's a Masahiro Ando episode
His stuff could get pretty goofy sometimes
>Out of the entire team, she seemed like she had less episodes.
She's by far the least used or developed major character in the series. She technically has a fair number of episodes where she's the 'focus', but the bulk of them do something incredibly minor with her that could have been done by anyone else and then actually concentrate on something else entirely. She's just there to be the one left over to fill out the main five.
Guys, why all senshis are this fappable? I already fapped 2 times reading this thread. But I have to fap at least three more times just to appreciate inner senshi. And there're outer ones also...
There was also this guy who showed up for maybe two-and-a-half episodes in the first season for Mercury.
Toon Makers' SM, the half western-animated/half live-action piece of garbage they were gonna make until Toei said nope and DiC got it.
Most here have probably already seen That Video.
best girl coming through.
>you will never be babysat by a sailor senshi
You forgot cripple ginger Sailor Mercury.
Reminds me of that early 90s attempt to do an American Gundam show where a bunch of kids turn into the robots.
Had a wheelchair kid who turned into a Guntank.
Since no one else wants to post it, here's the Sailor Moon clip
And the DoozyBots.
lol, I was confused right away and asking myself if I was listening to a boy or a girl. I can never tell these days.
She shows her face though.
I just got through watching Avatar and they have a kid in a wheelchair with a hang glider attached. What the fuck is up with America and adding cripples to their fucking shows?
Dragon Tales even had one named Lorca.
Politically correct inclusiveness hit a mainstream high point in the late 80s.
That is, inclusiveness without acknowledging sexuality in any way. That's the modern inclusiveness agenda.
It's just the difference between being well-written and being cliche-driven drivel.
Toph is a good example. She's blind, but she's not defined solely as "the blind one." She has a personality that's pushy, stubborn, outspoken and a bit self-righteous. But she also grows and matures and mellows out.
Her blindness plays very little into her actual characterization and that makes her a good character by writers who wanted to make a good character.
Too often you get characters written by hacks who don't know how to actually write and so give a character a gimmick and then define every bit of their characterization around that gimmick. That's just poor writing in general.
Staying in Avatar, look at Bolin in the first season of Korra. He was written to be the silly comic relief character like Sokka. Only they forgot that Sokka also would take charge of a situation and was always coming up with ideas and plans for the group. They weren't always good ideas, but Sokka at least had more going for him than just trying to be the funny one.
That sums it up perfectly. She was well written and had character, one of my favorites from that show.
I really love Minako. I hope something comes from that.
>Cause i know in the anime it's obvious that usagi is the princess the whole time.
This is true in general, though there is some sense that this might not be so. But this isn't at all why you should read the manga at this point.
>Does the manga handle it better?
It's what happens once the reveal occurs and after that really changes how the rest of the arc plays out. It gets really heavy and plays around with the backstory of everything more along the full implications of this. It ends up completing the arc in ways the anime doesn't really get into properly.
The princess being suicidal is fucking amazing.
Nurse Venus from the Black Moon arc. Also, that one from the Makaiju arc where Makoto tries to use her culinary skills to woo Sejiro. Loved the ending to that one (pic related) plus the episode was a goldmine for reaction faces.
This one had me yelling at my screen. I got so into it.
...anyone got this completed?
Going to become my wallpaper if someone has it.
Simply, I wanted to see Hotaru's courage pay off for her, but it looked like it wasn't going to happen, hence the yelling. I yelled "NOOOOOOOOOOO".
I just became totally enveloped and engrossed in S after I saw pic related, because I could finally see where the season was going, and I loved it.
Lol faggot go outside and stop watching your girl cartoons. Maybe thats why you are a virgin and don't have friends is because you're a degenerate waste of space. Kill yourself.
>I've seen too many of those. Wiseman sounds more interesting.
Assuming you haven't actually seen the series properly, you have no idea. Wiseman is no where near as good. I can assure you you haven't seen "too many of those".
Just realized that you're talking about the anime version and not the manga one, who is incredibly shallow in characterization and action. Besides, Wiseman sounds like the cosmic version of the devil but not exactly Nyarlathotep.
Yes! Even without the weird thing on one of the lenses of his glasses, it would have been completely obvious who he was. That's how I could tell the direction of the season.
Like, at first he was just some maniac, and I was like "wow, this guy is pretty lame", but then out of nowhere they show us that this maniac was also a caring father, and he cared about Hotaru no less, who I already loved too and wanted the best for, so he totally won me over with that. So, all of a sudden he had some depth, and I got so much hype and anticipation to see them reconcile his two opposing traits (plus all the other things that were going on).
I was interested in him all of a sudden, and that's more than I could say for other bads up to then like Queen Beryl, Prince Demando, or Death Phantom.
I don't remember too well, but I think Wiseman in the anime was supposed to be an embodiment of some inner demon that Chibiusa had and maybe inner demons that the other Senshi had. In that respect he's a solid and purposeful villain (unlike Queen Beryl), but he never had me excited and rooting for him like Dr. Tomoe, which is why I liked Dr. Tomoe more. Wiseman wasn't really "his own person".
But like you said, Dr Tomoe is the kind of story that we have seen before. An example of that would be Claire's dad in Heroes, Noah Bennet, who is the same kind of character, and who of course I also loved.
I hadn't seen that character too many times when I watched Sailor Moon, but maybe the next time I see him, it'll feel trite and played out.
>I think Wiseman in the anime was supposed to be an embodiment of some inner demon that Chibiusa had and maybe inner demons that the other Senshi had
No, that definitely isn't the case. He was an external threat with the power to manipulate other peoples minds. Saphir was the most interesting villain in that arc.
>Maybe thats why you are a virgin and don't have friends is because you're a degenerate waste of space.
How am I that obvious? >.>
Anyway, I have said before that one of the main reasons I love Sailor Moon so much is that it's a great friendship simulator. That is, it does a great job filling the void created by not having any friends IRL.
I also realize that many people don't go into Sailor Moon with the same baggage as me, which helps to explain why (to me) they seem overly concerned with the "filler", the monster of the day stuff, and the plot. It is in part because they don't get as much out of the friend stuff as I do.
The character interaction is great, but the MotW plots are usually terrible and get in the way of everything else. Getting rid of most of them and allowing episodes to resolve themselves naturally would be one of the best things you could do to improve the anime.
Yes, I know he was officially from the planet Nibiru or something and wanted to destroy everything or something.
But I would hope that was all superficial stuff and that his real purpose (from the writers' point of view) was to be an embodiment of the inner demons Chibiusa had. After all, he could not be defeated by physical force, but only by Chibiusa overcoming her doubt that her parents loved her and whatever else was bothering her.
That's how I would have written him anyway, because I didn't think that Nibiru/end of the universe/whatever stuff was anywhere near as interesting.
I do think that Sailor Moon was at its best in Super S, and Stars, in which the MOTWs were limited to some short comedic scene and then gotten rid of.
Before then they tended to be really boring and immersion-breaking, yes. I remember myself fast forwarding through a ton of the daimon egg scenes in S. They were just excruciating.
And then towards the end of each season, Sailor Moon would drastically shift in tone and get all melodramatic for their epic season finales. I didn't like that too much either.
You say that like I watch everything from Love Live to K-ON. I don't. I only watched Sailor Moon, and it was on a whim just because I remember seeing bits of it on TV as a kid.
I'm not someone who actively tries to fill a friendship void with girl cartoons. I just noticed as I was watching it that it was filling a friendship void that I had.
I don't even think it would be a good coping strategy to fill a friendship void with stuff that is all about how great friendship is. It would be a constant reminder of what you don't have, and that would only make someone depressed.
>I do think that Sailor Moon was at its best in Super S, and Stars, in which the MOTWs were limited to some short comedic scene and then gotten rid of.
Purely in terms of the episode to episode handling of the MOTW, the later seasons are definitely better than the crap you get before. S was particularly bad with just how jarring and unnecessary they were, while SuperS was the only time where they actually nailed it and made them both relevant and funny without taking over half the episode with nothing and is a horrifically underrated season for that.
Otherwise I can't say I agree. The two final seasons were way better than R, which was downright painful aside from a handful of brilliant episodes, but neither of them came close to being as all encompassingly grand as classic or as dramatically well executed as S.
>After all, he could not be defeated by physical force, but only by Chibiusa overcoming her doubt that her parents loved her and whatever else was bothering her.
As much as I otherwise can't stand the manga, this is another area where it's handling of the plot was just better.
God I wish Crystal was the refinement and total integration of Sailor Moon that I hoped it would have been.
saturn is the sexiest
>I only watched Sailor Moon, and it was on a whim just because I remember seeing bits of it on TV as a kid.
2BH, this is fine and there's no point in going further. I watched it out of the same kind of curiosity, and nothing else I've seen has handled character interaction in a more satisfying way. All other anime focusing on girls doing stuff in general that I've seen haven’t been able to match what Sailor Moon ended up pulling off. There's a sense of deep honestly to it that I haven’t quite encountered elsewhere.
The only other thing I've seen that vaguely captures a similar sense is the short 'Beyond' from the Animatrix, but that doesn't go into the plot and development SM does.
I never meant to imply that I thought R was better than Stars, S, or Super S. I don't think that at all. I was actually disappointed with the Black Moon stuff after the Makaiju arc, which I loved.
oh, never mind. I guess it's time for me to go to sleep.
He wasn't happy about it, though
I actually liked that everyone's name appears with a different typeface. It gave you an odd glimpse into their personalities that you otherwise weren't going to get from fast-food kids mascots. Lingo was the new kid intro'd to tie in with Crayola introducing their new colors in the early 90s.
