Why, so the US companies can chop up, reorganize, and otherwise neuter the last two seasons of Sailormoon? No thanks....

Exec A: "In this scene, we have Hotaru and Michiru gingerly holding hands. It's definately lesbionic, but the dialogue is important."
Exec B: "Sir, we can cut the scene and introduce the dialogue in a fabricated memory sequence planted over some of the non-dialogue parts over the next few scenes. We can cut clips from episode 256, 257, and 291 to make a sutiable flashback."
Exec C: "Won't they know it's not a flashback when they see those scenes later?"
Execs A & B: "SHUT UP!"

It does not help to bump a thread 30 minutes after it is created. People will see this if they are interested. So try to calm a little down.

I don't really understand Mandolins post, tho'.. Maybe because I never watched the show.

US version of Sailor Moon vs the Japanese version...
There were two generals of the "evil side" that were in love with each other. In the english version, they animated in some extra eyelashes and got a female voice actor to make it acceptable. (Homosexuality on TV is bad, apparently)

Sailor Moon gets slapped by her mom and kicked out of the house for failing yet another test in school. This is edited out in the US version.

Numerous scenes were dubbed too violent and cut.

Some scenes were cut for no apparent reason (NOT time constraints). A scene where the Moon Princess falls off a balcony and slows her fall with a parasol is for some reason reversed (so she's flying upward) and given a voice-over.

The WORST of it all was the fact that the last two episodes of the first season were condensed into a single episode for the US, because it took out the fact that the other 4 sailor scouts died in their fight to get to the big bad queen.

Those last episodes are very emotionally driven, but significantly cheapened by the editing.

There's lots more issues in this series (and others) of the emotional guts being torn out of anime just because they're brought to american audiences. Heck, they even edited out ALL the blood from Naruto... and it's not like naruto is intensely gory to begin with.

I'll start supporting corporate US dubbing franchises when they stop editing them. If a show isn't appropriate for "US children" then market it to an appropriate age group.

great, now i have this german techno-remix version of the Sailor Moon theme song running through my head and it won't go away. :o

i've got to agree with mandolin, you're better off *not* getting it back on US tv and instead hunting down fansubs on the internet.

If Sailor Moon came back, you think it'd be on Adult Swim? Highly unlikely. It's been billed and marketed in the US as a little kid's show. It'd probably be impossible to market the 5th (and best, IMHO) season as adult fare.

Too many parents would not even bother to -check- before letting their kids watch. Then you have a huge hullabaloo about how CN put a kids show on the air that features *gasp* transsexuals (Yes, the Starlights are BOYS, who transform into GIRLS). And they thought one scene of Malachite and Zoicite gazing fondly at each other was too risque to risk showing to kids.

Someday, you'll learn how the world really works and why things never happen the way you hope they will.

If season 5 were imported and dubbed, it would
A ) get chopped up to be "suitable" (most likely option)
or
B ) run a few episodes before parents threw a hissy fit about the content of what is "supposed" to be a kid's cartoon and it gets ripped off the air

A ) the fans get gypped
B ) the fans lose anyway

You're petitioning for a lose-lose situation here. You're not going to get what you want, the way you want it. Many parents these days expect the media to take care of censoring itself. Parents already think that Sailor Moon is for little children. They're NOT going to check to see if it's STILL for little kids or not, and they WILL be pissed off if there's transsexuals on their kid's show.

It's not about the teens, it's about the parents of children who will be upset at the content. They'd rather have their spongebob fart jokes than a show with actual life lessons like "Love can't always be what you wish it was" as is (one of) the lesson(s) in Season 5 (Poor Seiya....).

*sigh*

I'm done arguing. I loved season 5 too much to see it FUBAR'd by the US editors. If that's what you really want, go for it, but I'll always be against it myself.

EDIT1: Dumb smilies....
EDIT2: Gundam and DBZ don't have transgenders or homosexuals, or blood.

Its not what I want its that I have too. If it was up to me then perhaps but Im not doing it for myself theres people out there that Im trying to help and giving up is not an option. a true fan dos not care if the anime is dubbed or uncut, a true fan just wants its fav anime to be shown uncut or not. And Dragonball Z HAS tons of blood and plenty of adult themes that were cut but are now being aired Uncut on cartoonnetwork.
