An Okay Start
30 June 2013 | by KatherinePetersdorfSee all my reviews

I loved Sailor Moon as a child, but I started with the English Sub. Sometimes I find that I enjoy Japanese more and sometimes I enjoy English more, it just depends on the episode.

For the pilot episode I thought it was an okay start, however, if I hadn't seen it in English first I don't I could have gotten into the series because it seemed like she was lazy girl who loves Sailor V more than the lovable Usagi Tsukino that we all cherish.

I think that part of the episode could have been played way down, other than that it was a great episode. In fact I have seen the episode so many times that I can probably tell you all the lines in order in English and Japanese. (Well I can do that for all the Sailor Moon episodes)
