I still find it shocking that this is official art by Naoko. Oh, my word!! Fortunately for us, Kimiharu Obata, 2 key animator for several episodes of Sailor Moon and Sailor Moon R , has kindly put pen to paper to talk about this very issue. So there you are, just sitting in your room minding your own business and watching the Sailor Senshi fight against the latest Monster of the Day. Just then, Sailor Moon transforms to save the day.
The Real World Stories Behind Sailor Moon
The definition of the magical girl genre, Sailor Moon is a beloved manga and television series that has grown in popularity. If anyone in North America is going to know anything about anime, they'll know about this show, as it's probably the most recognizable mainstream anime title of them all. However, questionable censorship has led to arguments between fans about whether the English dub hurt the show's LGBT representation and other elements, since it heavily edited the show's content. Though a lot of this content was added back in thanks to the re-dubbing being done by Viz Media and the Sailor Moon Crystal series. The version of Sailor Moon released in America that was produced by DiC for the first two seasons and dubbing studio Optimum Productions had a lot of censorship, which included the removal of near-nudity and violence, plus the infamous addition of kissing cousins. Even when a new producer, Cloverway, teamed up with YTV to localize episodes in the US and dub the third and fourth seasons along with Optimum Productions , the censorship continued. The show was originally dubbed in Canada, which is often forgotten. Did this censorship promote negative messages or help make the program more kid-friendly? You read that right - Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus were originally lesbian lovers in the Japanese version of Sailor Moon but the company changed it so the two referred to each other as cousins.
Navigation Get Help! The Galaxy Cauldron. Navigation Navigation Get Help! Does anyone know the possible symbolism or the reason behind why Sailor Moon becomes nude in the final Sailor Moon episode in the battle between her and Galaxia? Then when she finally defeats the Chaos inside of her, both Galaxia and Sailor Moon are chatting in the nude. This is something that obviously couldn't be aired on TV in the US so I never got to see these final episodes and was wondering why I had to put in my birthdate before I could proceed watching until I saw this. Does anyone have any ideas or know the idea of having her in the nude? I'm pretty sure that I heard somewhere that nudity in Japan doesn't have well, mostly doesn't have the same connotations as it does in the West.
I'm glad a couple of you doctor wives replied back. So that's something I can't say is good or bad. So I understand how it's easy to believe nonsense when you're brainwashed from birth, and how it can be comforting to believe your life is somehow very important in the grand scale of the universe, and how you don't have to be afraid of death because you'll go on to a better place where you'll live happily ever after for eternity. I have been married to a doctor for 29 years now and think I have felt or experienced many of the worries expressed. It has been very therapeutic to read about other people's experiences. Then we can at least cuddle and go to bed together. Really, I'm interested in this too. I have a small child home full time with me, millions of miles away from any family. I am happy and established successful comp. I mentioned in another post that I am okay with us not seeing each other all the time.
