First Anime I Ever Watched

Hi, hi! I decided it would be fun to do a 30 day anime challenge! I’ll be answering these questions:

The very first anime that I saw was Sailor Moon!

I don’t exactly remember the very first time that I saw it but I do remember always talking about it to my friends, making sure to watch it with every opportunity I had, wanting to be Sailor Moon EVERY Halloween, begging my mom to drive an hour to the next city every time I had money to buy the dolls from KB Toys and snatching up the one Sailor Moon book that managed to show up at our school book giveaway. (I actually still have this book xD )

Sailor Moon is still an anime I love and will watch over and over again. There’s so much to it. Throughout the seasons, and even the movies, there is so much character development. I laughed with the characters and I cried with them. I even looked up to them as I didn’t have any role models in the real world.

I always loved the art style as well. I will say I’m not a huge fan of the new art style for Sailor Moon Crystal. I think it’s beautiful in itself but in all honesty, I think it’s a bit too elegant for Usagi’s clumsy nature.

What was the first anime you ever watched? Let me know here or on Facebook!

Sailor Moon also know as Bishōjo Senshi Sērā MūnPretty Soldier Sailor Moon and Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon started as a manga series by Naoko Takeuchi and was originally published in Nakayoshi. It has since aired as a television series from 1992-1997 and has recently been rebooted as Sailor Moon Crystal, there are also 3 movies (the first is now out on blu-ray), Sailor V manga, musicals, video games, card games, figures, etc.

Inner Senshi

There were some issues with the western releases of the original series however, for instance, the love scenes between Haruka and Michiru were taken out and they were depicted as cousins rather than lovers and there was an entire season that was not allowed to air here in America.

Sailor Moon is about a group of girls, known as the Sailor Scouts or the Sailor Senshi, who team up to save the world from various evil doers. The Sailor Scouts consist of the ‘Inner Senshi’ and the ‘Outer Senshi’.

There is a lot to this series and I won’t go into all of the details in this particular post but if you enjoy magical girl anime, I highly recommend checking Sailor Moon out. Personally though, I prefer the original. I feel that the art style of Sailor Moon Crystal did not fit the personality of Usagi at all. I’ve only seen the first few episodes of Crystal so far because I’m having a hard time getting past that aspect.

Thanks for reading! Tell me what you think of Sailor Moon Crystal so far! ^_^ Let me know here or on facebook!
