The first time I ever saw Sailor Moon was when I was in the Philippines. It was in Tagalog and I didn't understand a word of it, but it looked funny. I stocked up on tons of Sailor Moon, Sailor Venus, Sailor Mars, stationary, but that was about it.
Fast forward to a year and a half ago. I walk into my neighbor's house only to discover Sailor Moon comics on her kitchen counter. Casually I asked "You know about Sailor Moon?" And wham, from that moment on I became a Sailor Moon fanatic. I watched all five season of the cartoon (barrowed from my neighbor), I even stayed up all night finishing the series. I loved season 5 so much that I asked my husband to get it for me last year for Mother's Day. He did without even questioning why a grown woman would want a cartoon for a gift. There is just something about the story that grabs at you.
In October I discovered Sailor Moon Live Action. Yes, they made the cartoon into live action and it is the best. They switched the story line up, gave it a bit more information and depth, added more romance, got super cute actresses that fit the parts perfectly, gave it a killer soundtrack. My favorite part however was how badly it was subtitiled. I laughed the whole way through (except the episode that I cried in). This really is a fun fun show. If you are ever in the mood for a fun show, and you don't mind foreign films and bad subtitles. Check this out.
Now that I am done I will probably have to watch them again, but until I find time to do that, I will just listen to my Sailor Moon Cd and wait for Mother's Day to come again so I can get another season, or maybe the Live Action ones!
In the name of the moon I will punish you!
