Has anyone noticed how awful the sailor moon dubs are? I'm refering to their new names, their new transformation phrases and the voices.
Just want to see everyone else's opinion.

Sailor Moon was actually the first anime show I ever watched in America, so I absolutely did not pay attention to the people who made the show in the end. A few years later, I began learning about the companies and the people who did the voiceovers. At the time, I did not know it was a dub until I actually came across Minitokyo and learned that the dubs aren't as good as the original. Then again, when is a replica or a multiple edition of something better than the original?

I think you never know how bad it's something until you see something better.

When I watched SM on TV, I watched the Mexican dub...
Years later, when I started downloading episodes, the first ones were of the American dub. God, I loved it :D maybe the translation wasn't great, but I liked the voices.

And then...I got the Japanese episodes. Now I think that almost all the dubs sucks :D But they're good if you want to get your first impression of an anime, in your tv...

Yeah, the voices are very high pitched, but then every japanese girl has a high voice.

I also grew up on the Sailor Moon dub. I just accepted it and didn't really care either way. Even now it doesn't bother me, except for giving Naru that ny(?) accent. But I guess if it were the opposite scenario, I would probably have a very different opinion.

i did see some episodes subbed and yeah those senshi have very high-pitched voices.

Firstly, nothing beats the original. Dubs are about 99% bad, but....
You have to think about all those newbies that we want to attract to anime.
S.M. was my first love of anime. At that time it was dubbed in English, but in the beginning it was not that bad. The voices for the first 2 seasons are still better than many of the high pitched Saturday morning cartoons/anime I see today.

The worst dubbing of an anime I have ever seen is SuperS. I couldn't even sit through the whole episode when it came back on tv as specials. I think you meant this. Yes the names were changed horribly and the voices sounded so corny, it was painful. All the jokes were changed and some scenes were completely cut. I feel bad that many potential fans probably got scared off.

On the other hand, I have seen all the Japanese episodes and some are not that great either. Actually S.M.'s orig. transformation song, if any, in the beginning was pretty bad. They would just repeat her name over and over. Other weapon attacks had the actual toy sound in the attack, which sounded very cheesy.

Finally after the horrible plot in SuperS, Sailor Stars was such a great way to end the season (even though it is almost completely different from the manga). We finally got to see the the ending for SuperS, the inner and the outer work together, Sailor Saturn use her attacks, Darien/Serena, a real strong enemy that actually kills people! Lots of serious and emotional situations and some nudity. Probably why it will never be shown in the U.S.

Everyone should SEE Sailor Stars! The Final and one of the Best seasons!
^_^' Sorry, I can go on and on sometimes so thanks for the thread and maybe we can chat again sometime. Take Care

Just because it's a dub doesn't make it bad. Chances are because you aren't from the native Japan you won't catch flaws that are in the originals of shows. Shows can suck in the original language, too. Being the original voice over doesn't mean that they always fit the character. It has alot more to do with being open minded. I think some people would be shocked to know there are Japanese people who *gasp* like English dubbings more than the first voices!

There was no need to be rude.

I was first introduced to Sailor Moon by watching the dub version. But as I got hold of the subtitled versions of the series as well as the "Super S" (Fourth season spin-off movie), I really stated to enjoy the original dialogue a lot more. You can easily pick out the differences in translation between the English dub and the subtitles. And easily determine why the people at DiC Enterprises did not go too well when translating Sailor Moon from the Japanese dialogue to English (no offence to the translators at DiC Enterprises by the way). Sure you can understand it a bit more by having the English dub, but you just can't beat the original dialogue - hands down.
