This Japanese import featuring five teenagers with superhero powers may turn out to be for older girls what Pokémon is for the pee-wee set. The fantasy-action story lines of Sailor Moon (named for the leader) is typical anime fare--which means it's

5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't help but give it 5 stars... December 23, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
The Sailor Moon R Movie is by far the best of the movies. It has an intriguing plot, something that American viewers don't get to see much in Sailor Moon, and great art as usual. The best part, however, is that it's translated word for word from the Japanese. Which means DiC didn't hack it apart and edit it for younger children.
Take note, this is definitely not for younger children. First of all, the main villain is gay. To quote Mercury: "It appears Mamoru is popular even with the boys." There's also cursing, but it's very minor. Mostly by Jupiter and the villain. The last thing is that there's some nudity. The villain yanks Sailor Moon's brooch, which detransforms her... however, ribbons still fly about to cover key areas, so don't worry.
You'll absolutely love this video. The somewhat more adult aspect of it makes it even more enjoyable. The laughs are endles... and not all are intentional. Many people find the scouts' chanting of their names during their transformations very amusing (Serrraaa Juptah!) and the cheesy British music during Moon Scepter Elimination is to die for!
Get this movie, or you'll regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A rose by any other voice actress... February 11, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
By now you've probably ascertained the Sailor Moon R movie is, by general consensus, the favorite of the three. But how does the dub hold up? Well, it's not Princess Mononoke, but it is a Silver Millenium ahead of the butchering done to the battle with Beryl. Yes, the dramatic tension is toned down, and yes, there are a few censoring edits, but they're minor. And quite understandable considering the age level the video is geared towards. (Pioneer certainly isn't about to tell three year olds that the best way to revive someone is to suffocate them until they wake up.) Children who love Sailor Moon will adore this dubbed version. As for the older crowd (and I presume we all already own the subtitled version) the dub grows on you quickly. I've always been willing to forgive poor Terri Hawkes's cheesy dialogue in favor of the sheer energy she gives to her character. Stephanie Morganstern in particular screams a very passionate "Don't!" as Venus rushes to her Moon Princess's defense. We mourn the loss of "Moon Revenge" but "The Power of Love" works surprisingly well in it's place. At first I thought Fiore's voice sounded too adolescent, but in retrospect it gave the character a snese of warmth that the Demando style aloofness of the sub never really achieved. My advice: buy the sub and give it all of your otaku honor. Then buy the dub, cringe through the less-than-inspired plant puns, throw your best MST commentary at the television, then calmly admit to yourself that down inside, you really do love these girls deeply and are already searching Amazon for the S Movie's dub.

5.0 out of 5 stars You've gotta get it. January 15, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
The Sailor Moon R Movie is easily the best of the three movies, and far better than anything in the series - at least in the American dub. The art work is of the highest quality and the humor is great (picture Usagi kissing a slug.) But this movie's greatest strength is it's intriguing plotline. The villain has motivation! *GASP*
There's only one drawback... it's not for little kids. It's in the original Japanese form, so it's not watered down. First of all, the villain is gay. To quote Ami, "It seems Mamoru is popular even with the boys." (Hehe.) Also, there's really minor nudity. The transformations show a little more of the body lines, plus the bad guy yanks Sailor Moon's Crystal, which makes her un-transform. Fortunately, streaming ribbons cover the important places. The last thing is that it's a tad more violent... as in there's blood. But none of these things should bother people over ten. Soooo... go out there and buy it! You won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yeah..We Are On our Way! November 21, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
The Sailor Moon R Movie is finally going to be dubbed! I don't know about anyone else but i couldn't help myself so i got the subtitled version of this Movie on a month ago and Loved it! This movie contains Loe, hate, and pure happiness. It was the sweetest movie every created and probably one of the best in the three Sailor Moon Movies! So please what are you waiting for, no more annoying subtitles...get something you can understand for this GReat Movie! Also be sure to get the other two Sailor Moon movies when they come out in the dubbed version also! I have heard these are un-edited too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sailor Moon R is the best SailorMoon Movie January 4, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Out of the three Sailor Moon movies (R, S, and SuperS) SailorMoon R is by far my favorite. The first time that I watched it I had spent around 3 hours downloading it from a site that I had found on the internet. I feel that the time spent was well worth it. When I got the chance to buy it on VHS I snapped it up and bought it as quickly as I could. The villian is one of the best that I have ever seen ((and he looks like Ali/Alan to boot)). I'm not sure that the dubbed version is gonna be as good because it'll be cut and you need to see some of the homosexual themes in the movie to really understand the feelings of jelousy that Fiore has towards Usagi and Usagi has towards Fiore. Of course Mamoru just has to be in the middle of it. Personally I think that Usagi could do a lot better but that's just my opinion. The battle with Fiore on the asteroid is awesome. And how at the end he gives up his life and energy to save Usagi because of his love for Mamoru. The soundtrack is one of the best that I have heard. Any die hard Sailor Moon fan needs to have this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Decent DVD release, better English dubs than later seasons
Beyond that, there's not much I can add that Moonies don't already know. A re-release notwithstanding, if you can get a copy, it's a must-have for Sailor Moon fans.
