  • A great adaptation of a great anime.

    WARNING: Review may contain spoilers.



    Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon is something that I have always wanted to see: a live-action version of Sailor Moon.



    The show was kind of a return to the franchise in 2003, as the Sailor Moon anime ended back in 1997. When this series was released, the manga was re-released as well.



    Like the original series, it stars Usagi Tsukino, a fourteen-year-old girl who becomes Sailor Moon (she also has her manga personality, so she's not as ditzy, but still very bubbly), as well as her friends Ami Mizuno (Sailor Mercury), Rei Hino (Sailor Mars), Makoto Kino (Sailor Jupiter), and Minako Aino (Sailor Venus), who's a idol singer in this version, and she's much more serious in this series than the anime and manga. Artemis, Minako's cat, and Luna, Usagi's cat are there too, but instead, they are stuffed animals that can walk and talk (probably because real cats are too much of a pain in the neck to train). Also (spoiler!), Luna becomes a Sailor Senshi!



    The villians from the first story arc return (the Dark Kingdom), and more is revealed about their past than the anime.



    The show usually ranges from being a lighthearted comedy to a serious drama. The last few episodes aren't as cheery as they were at first, just like how the Sailor Moon anime worked. The jokes are very funny when there's a humorus scene.



    Of course, it does have it's flaws. The CGI for the transformation sequences isn't that great, and it's pretty obvious that it's CGI. Same goes for the cats. They're usually played by puppets, but they're in CGI for more difficult scenes, and the CGI is obvious. The monsters are also obviously played by guys in rubber foam suits (like Barney), but it's supposed to be similar to Power Rangers. I really wish that the show could've gone on longer, such as episodes based on the other story arcs, since I would've loved to see Sailors Uranus, Neptune, Saturn, Pluto, and Chibi Moon in there as well. But the show was put on a crappy time slot (7:30 AM on Sundays), so vieweship was down. And they would have to find new actresses for the Senshi, as the original ones are too old for the roles now. And of course, I wish that they would release the series on a subtitled DVD in America!



    All in all, if you love Sailor Moon, then this is a good series for you.moreless

  • Hurray, teenage girls save the day!

    This is a classic show with a awsome storyline. I love to watch it as it stays closer to the manga storyline than the anime does. However the ending is very different.

    I like the side storylines too, they give the story that little bit more intrest. Also the characters draw you into the story in a different way. You grow very attached to them very quickly. When I first herd of this I thought it would be rubbish but I soon grew very attached and began to enjoy it far more than I thought I would. The characters although different and there are new ones still have everyday problems (as well as saving the world) and always find a way to save them. I think they should make another serises.moreless
  • Regular teenage, Tsukino Usagi, finds out that she, along with four other girls, must save the world from destruction.

    When I first viewed PGSM, i giggled at the special effects and how similar the show was to Power Rangers. However, around episode 4, I realized how different PGSM was from the anime. I was soon sucked into the show and couldn't stop watching. In a way, PGSM is much more developed than its anime counterpart since it delves more into the individual characters and presents more plausible plots (in a strange, reverse psychology way). A classic for years to come!moreless
  • Funny, but a little bit to childish.

    Having already reviewed the Anime version of "Sailor Moon" I came across episodes of the live action Japanese version which ran from 2003 to 2004. I have to admit I couldn't stop until I watched all 50 episodes. Lets get one thing out of the way, the special effects are bad and there are times you are watching a power ranger fight, but the similarities end there, because the show has a real good storyline and characters you actually care about, plots such as Rei (Sailor Mars) trying to patch things up with her estranged father who wasn't there when her mother died and Minako (Sailor Venus) who fights despite having a life threatening illness. The actors are all perfectly cast as well: Miyuu Sawai who plays Usagi/Sailor Moon is not as whiny as her anime counterpart but she is just as sweet and bubbly, Chisaki Hama (Sailor Mercury) is the same brainy girl we all know and love. Keiko Kitagawa's Sailor Mars is not as tough or mean as her anime counterpart and comes off softer, but still stern. The big difference is Sailor Venus (Japanese pop star Ayaka Komatsu) who is nothing like the anime but her background story is touching and is wonderfully acted.Sailor Jupiter(Myuu Azama)is still the same tomboyish girl we all love, rounding out the cast is Jyoji Shibue who plays Tuxedo Mask,who is very good in the role. I highly recommend "Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon". I personally feel if this was dubbed in English it would as big a hit here as it was in Japan. Bad effects and all.moreless
