new sailor moon anime is making dudebros piss and moan and it isn’t even out yet. I’m so proud.

how is that pissing and moaning? they’re rightfully pointing out that you can’t gender a fucking anime

It’s not gendering an anime to point out it was made for women and the majority of the consumers are women. Sailor Moon DID capture the hearts of girls everywhere. It isn’t like there’s a footnote that says “BUT NO BOY HEARTS WERE CAPTURED”
It means a whole fucking lot to a lot of girls because it is rare to get a superhero that is aimed to empower them. Naoko Takeuchi said she made Sailor Moon for girls, to empower girls. She has said this. That was her goal. She wanted to reach girls. You have a problem with that, and the advertisements acknowledging this was the aim of Sailor Moon, that’s really fucking sad.


seriously how is anyone surprised by this.
Whenever dudebros see one thing in this world not aimed towards them, they piss and moan about their balls shriveling up. number one, balls /=/ being a guy. Number 2- go watch the thousands of other things FOR YOU. 
In America, you have plenty. Women aren’t considered an audience worth drawing in. Media studies have shown executives often only target men and figure women don’t need to be targeted bc they’ve been forced to watch shit aimed at men, to put up with male aimed fanservice, their whole lives. They will come with the dudes. They CANCELED superhero cartoons recently using the fact it was too popular with the female viewership instead of the male viewership. Girls don’t often get stuff for them. Disney princesses (which are currently avoiding putting the name of female characters in the movie titles  so boys will go see them). my little pony, which gets a bunch of dudes taking it over, making porn and actually making it uncomfortable for little girls to attend it.Definitely not fucking superheroes (say Wonder Woman and NOT SINCE THE 1970S notice how she doesn’t have a movie or a cartoon and her comic panders towards dudes). 
So when I see American dudes feeling put upon that Japanese media aims some stuff towards girls? zero sympathy. 
Aiming towards girls is what made Sailor Moon what it is.
I feel intense pity for men who can’t handle being put second ever. This is not made for you. You can still enjoy it. Just try to resist the urge not to be catered to or put first in every series you watch.

Naoko Takeuchi is a Japanese feminist and Sailor Moon is definitely a series created “for girls, by girls”. It’s always been that way for the entire 20 year history of the show, even BEFORE production plans were made during Sailor V’s serialization. 
Boys are welcome (and I would even encourage them!) in the Sailor Moon fandom, but just as women are expected to deal with the fact that comic books aren’t created with their focus in mind, I think men can be expected to not demand that a little girl’s anime series be catered to them.

Sailor Moon: Where to Begin

So you’re excited for the Sailor Moon reboot, but you haven’t watched the show since you were eight years old.  Or perhaps you have never—gasp!—had the pleasure of experiencing the pretty sailor suited soldiers.  You want to get into this thing before Sailor Moon Crystal comes out this summer, but it’s intimidating trying to break into a 20-year-old fandom.  Worry not, friends!  This primer is for you.

What is Sailor Moon?

Sailor Moon is a manga, an anime, a stage musical, and a live action show about a teenage magical girl who is the reincarnation of a moon princess.  It’s about friendship and love and fighting evil with magical jewelry.  

Did you say musical?

I most definitely said musical.

Where do I start? 

Anywhere you like!  But let’s begin with the original: 

* * * THE MANGA * * * 

Buy || Read Online

Written in 1992 by Naoko Takeuchi, the manga is considered the foundation on which all other versions, including the upcoming Sailor Moon Crystal, are based.  The current English-language edition, released by Kodansha Comics, consists of 14 volumes, and is widely available in bookstores.  

Wait!  I had some of the manga in the 90s, and it looked different, and the main character was named Bunny.

That version, released by Tokyopop, was based on the first edition of the Japanese manga.  Because it was released while the English dub of the anime was still on TV, characters were called by their English names for the sake of consistency.  The modern Kodansha version retained the original Japanese names. 

I went to the bookstore and they also had this thing called Sailor V.  What’s that about?

Sailor V is the prequel to the Sailor Moon manga.  You do not need to be familiar with it to understand Sailor Moon, but it is a good read and I recommend it.

* * * THE ORIGINAL ANIME * * * 

Buy || Download

At 200 episodes and three movies, the original Sailor Moon anime is likely the most iconic and well-known version.  While it has been confirmed that the new anime will not be a direct adaptation of the original one, it will almost definitely be taking cues from many of its most memorable aspects.

200 Episodes?  That’s way too much!

The anime is broken up into 5 seasons, with each season spanning its own story arc.  Season One is only 46 episodes long, and can be enjoyed on its own.  At this time, we do not know whether Sailor Moon Crystal will cover the events of the other four seasons.

What about the English dub?  That’s what I watched as a kid.

The English dub is its own entity, with different names and different personalities for many of the characters.  In addition, it only covered the first four seasons, and some scenes and episodes were skipped.  You can enjoy it on its own, but you will be missing out on a lot of content.

* * * MUSICALS AND LIVE ACTION * * * 

Watch Musicals || Watch Live Action

The musicals, called Seramyu, ran from 1993 to 2005 and again in 2013, with a constantly evolving storyline.  The recent 2013 musical, La Reconquista, ran as part of the 20th Anniversary celebrations.  

The live action series, called Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, is a 49-episode super sentai-style TV drama that aired in 2003.  It covers the events of the first season of the anime (or first story arc of the manga), with its own unique take on the story and characters.  While easy to pass over because of the cheesy CG animation and fight choreography, the live action is charming and well-written.  

Do I have to know any of this to enjoy Sailor Moon Crystal?

Probably not!  The new anime will be its own entity, starting from the beginning, not a continuation of existing canon.  But with so much great content out there to enjoy already, why not take advantage of it?  Sailor Moon is great in any incarnation!
