I've decided to check out the original Sailor Moon anime. Before people start convincing me to read the manga instead, one of the reasons I want to check out the the anime specifically is because the later seasons were directed by Ikuhara.

Thing is, I've been told that there's lots of filler episodes, so I'm wondering if I should drop those.

Don't read the manga. It has horrible pacing. The anime is way superior.

All you really need of Sailor Moon is the old anime.

Filler episodes are the reason the anime is better than the manga.
You should also read the manga because some of the story points are lore is better than in the anime.

Of you weren't such a new fag, you'd know the manga is shit compared to the anime

The manga is worse. Don't bother unless you have really awful taste.

And if filler bothers you there's not much point watching the anime either. The plot just isn't good. Cute girl antics are the show's strength, and why it's remembered fondly.
>>
>>135220158
No I wouldn't? I've just never taken that much interest in it. I mean, I couldn't tell you the names of any of the characters in the big three besides the mains and some of the hotter girls, because I might have fapped to them at one point. Not cause I'm new just cause I never took interest.

Ok, that's helpful, guess I'll watch the full thing then.

No one will

No, practically all episodes are very good written and enjoyable regardless of how "filler" they are. You can skip one episode about Chibiusa and dino island in season two though.

>>135220264
Manga goes straight to the point, it's a tragic magical girl genre. Anime downs that a lot in exchange of SoL antics and monster of the week episodes and a lots of punch clock villains.

sailormoon is for little girls.

How was SuperS even allowed to exist?

Real talk though, Dub or Sub?

The Sailor Moon manga is mediocre as all hell. Don't skip any of the anime episodes; they're what makes SM so good. A lot of the charm and personality comes from those episodes.

That's fine though, since I am a little skinny blonde girl actually.

I understand that you are trying to be helpful towards anon but this just doesn't fly anymore and it's irritating to me that a manga like sailor moon is still considered a godsend and Madoka Magica TV is given the same sort of praise for this fast pace. The very fact that the manga has this trait is more of a detriment than something in its favor. SMC shows the glaring flaws of the manga because of this. When a show is quickly paced, something is lost pertaining to characters and plot. It's He reason why compilation movies feel so empty and hollow unless you are a diehard fan.

I was kinda surprised when I found this image of William Gibson, it makes Prof Tomoe much more based in my book.

The filler its what makes it superior to the manga.

Which is the superior Mahou Shoujo? Sailor Moon or Cardcaptor Sakura?
>>
>>135227519
SM is good but not even remotely in the same league as CCS.
>>
>>135229061
>>135227519
Is CCS really that good?
Manga or anime?
>>
>>135227519
I'd say CCS is a better story and is told better, but there are good reasons why SM is more popular.

Being nearly three times as long is a help there, but it also has more memorable moments. Including season end tragic stuff, goofy shit, and a host of memorable girls, villains, and monsters. CCS is a lot more grounded when it comes to that.

Naw, that ain't gonna happen. The anime is the darling of Sailor Moon.

The only filler you should probably drop are those in the first ~20 episodes, which there are a lot of. Save those until after you watch the series.

I noticed in the first arc of season 2 that they were going to make one episode for each senshi in which they would get a new attack, so I knew nothing was going to happen for the next 3 episodes, which I guess made those episodes a little less fun to watch, but I don't suggest skipping them.

Towards the end of the first half of season 3, I got a little desperate for the plot to move on. Maybe 3-6 of those episodes could be skipped. I am not sure which ones would be best though.

The rest of the series is filler free from my point of view.

>>135220323
Aw, but that's such a nice episode.
>>
>>135220718
SUB ALL THE WAY. It ain't even close.

Because it's perfect, bro. I never wanted the adventures with the Amazon Trio to end.

Who is your favorite senshi /a/?
Am torn between Mars and Pluto.

Hard to pick one over the other because they each have something I like.

I remember having a crush on Uranus when I was young because of the eyes. Then I saw the subbed episodes...and loved her even more because of her being a massive flirt.
