One thing I think is funny about Haruka, is how much she dislikes Seiya. In fact, most of my favorite out hand) 'I'm Kou Seiya! Nice to meet you!" Usagi- "Haruka, please accept my apology for him. He can be rude, but.
If you do not share my influences, well, I encourage you to try out my writing anyway. Why is the stuff I watched as a kid important? Because writers steal shamelessly. Also, it is interesting to find those old shows and movies I loved as a kid and re-watch them with an adult eye. Occasionally such an exercise makes me wonder about myself as a child. I blame the sugary snacks the commercials kept trying to sell me.
Sometimes they really do not have any more to offer. But to criticize a media does not mean it cannot be enjoyed, hence guilty pleasures like soap operas, for example. Which brings me to the title of this entry. First, in my defense, I was a kid when I first watched this. Second, it was only my second or third anime. The subtitled versions are also a lot more honest and accurate. Also, Usagi meets and initially hates Mamoruwho is about 18 or 19 and in college and they end up dating.
When I was a kid, I did not get this at all.
I was a kid. So, there we go. And yes, the skirts on the 14 year old heroines are too short. So what on Earth did I like about this show? Well, when I was a kid, it was very different from the other cartoons on at the time. The structure was different, the animation style obviously different, and also I was a kid. To be fair, no one figured out He-man was just Prince Adam with a tan and a fur loincloth. I thought it would be interesting. And I still liked it well enough. Here are some assorted reasons.
They are super-powerful compared to the other five girls except Usagi, who is as powerful as she needs to be. In the formulaic battles, the other girls generally soften up the monster of the day so Sailor Moon can finish it off.
Uranus power of the sky and Neptune power of the ocean just defeat it. This series starts with Rei having a vision of the end of the world.
They also meet up with Sailor Pluto yes, this was before Pluto lost its status as a planetwho is the oldest of the senshi in her human disguise as a college student and has the power of time and unlike all the others carries a long staff roughly shaped like a key. She is absolutely terrible.

Then the other girls had to go and Troll. When Minako, then Ami, tease about Usagi having Mamoru's baby, they make Usagi go all red and blurt out that they're crazy.
Even Mamoru had to give them a weird look. And then later, Ami catches the two of them holding hands and Trolls again: Of course, this is all pretty ironic given what's discovered later during the main arc of R see below.
The monster then goes right for the ducks rather than the girl in front of him, prompting Ail to go "What is wrong with you?! Makoto demonstrates dicing the vegetables. Minako says she wants to try. Minako is much worse and sloppier at dicing than Makoto, and she warns Minako not to cut herself.
Even Ami and Rei are panicking. It turns out she only nicked herself. The Entirety of Episode To explain it, all of the Senshi are down with a virus except for Minako, so she tries to treat them. And then at the end, the tables are turned Enter Usagi, and cue the horror on Minako's face when she realizes karma's about to bite back.
At the beginning, when Minako's trying to help Rei, the moments pile up. First, in her enthusiasm, she's shaking the basket she's brought with her, forgetting that Artemis was in the basket!
When we finally see him, he has several bumps on his head. Sure enough, Minako messes up again, but it doesn't end there. She spills the porridge on Rei, then in trying to clean the sheets, dumps Rei out of her bed. Rei put it best when she said if Minako weren't doing this out of ditzinessshe'd be more evil than Esmeraude.

The topper is her trying to play some music only to first produce extremely loud rock music credit to DiC for leaving it in and then finally blowin up the boom box. Gets funnier when you remember her passion for music, thus that she's supposed to be proficient with cassette players and the like And even better when the manga reveals that she's actually the second most tech-savvy of the Sailor Soldiers, topped only by Ami.
Rei finally reaches her Rage Breaking Point. Earlier versions just had her scream, but Viz refines it into a fantastic " Get Out! Rei even calls up Usagi, begging her to lock her doors and barricade herself in, anything to keep Minako out. She ended up jumping on the wall outside and from there straight onto her balcony! And now to Usagi's place.
With a side of Chibi-Usa for good measure. She takes Usagi's temperature, but the battery-powered thermometer dies on her. As she's shaking it, she accidentally flings it through the bedroom window! At least Usagi turns down the rice porridge and Artemis stops her from touching the CD player. But then following a cute one-off scene transition with Luna opening her mouth—again, credit to DiC for leaving it inshe and Chibi-Usa try to clean things up downstairs after falling down the stairs.
The resulting montage shows the disaster that follows. When the other Sailors appear to try and wake her, Amy asks, "Why am I floating around in your dream? After Sailor Moon defeats the Droid, Venus has to call out to the others and beg them to get her down from the wall. The original Japanese was pretty straightforward, but the two dubs each made the moment a bit funnier: Hate to break up the nice "Aren't We The Best" session but Would one of you guys mind helping me get free from this wall?
I have to pee! When Sailor Venus first stumbles upon the bad guys trying to attack Chibiusa, they assume Venus discovered the hospital was a Negative Point and found out their plan to spread the infection.
And they ask her how she found out about their plan to create and spread the infection. Without missing a beat Venus says their plan was so obvious. Chibiusa thinks Venus is a good actress and should do improv.
Haruka Hates Seiya!
Several funny ones here. First, Ami is with Makoto and wonders if memorizing English words a day is too few. Then there is a bit of a running gag when a dog pees on Esmeraude's leg.
Sadly, this only became apparent in uncut releases. The first time was always cut from the original dub while the second may or may not have been seen depending on the specific cut being shown. Her talking is intercut with Artemis screaming. Especially the last one at the very end, which follows another moment where Chibi-Usa goes full Bratty Half-Pint and is running around in a tantrum in the tantrum, she accidentally throws her bag and it lands right on Artemis, triggering that final scream.
Episode 63 has Usagi spanking Chibi-Usa after she busts her again trying to steal the Silver Crystalbut that's not the funny part. No, the funny part was when Chibi-Usa, later in the episode, had a daydream where the situations were reversed and she was spanking Usagi.
Sadly, for reasons of decency at the time, all instances of spanking in the series were cut out of the original dub. When asked to join, Usagi rushes off Later on, while Grandpa is having trouble recruiting women for the course, he's forced to consider Chibi-Usa's offer until he's saved by Yuichiro, who had no trouble in his recruitment drive. This creates a scene the following day when Rei vents her frustration and Usagi Trolls her by recognizing she's jealous since Rei will never admit she has feelings for Yuichiro.
Episode 55 DiC Episode 49where Makoto tries to woo Seijuro with lunch when Natsumi shows up jealous as usual, telling her he's off limits. When Makoto fires back over what on the surface looks like an incestuous relationship probably why it had to be edited in the old DiC dubSeijuro, in a moment of shock, starts choking.
Meanwhile, Makoto and Natsumi are so worked up they just glare at each other while Seijuro is struggling so much he's suffering periodic Glamour Failure which the girls fail to notice. Oh, and when the idea hit Mako to try wooing him with food, she got so pumped up she slapped Ami on the back so hard she knocked her to the floor and left a distinct impression on Ami's back.
Meanwhile, Usagi forgot her lunch again and is desperate for something to eat while she's barely conscious. Worse yet, her usual recourse bum some off Mako is not available due to the above. She tries to bum off Ami but arrives just after she finishes her lunch. She promptly faints and Ami has to shake her and tell her to get a grip. When Luna finally catches up to Usagi at the end of the school dayUsagi is so famished she eats like there's no tomorrow and Ami has to hold up her handkerchief to avoid getting sprayed with rice.
She ends up eating even faster when she learns Mako is "dating" Seijuro. When the girls argue over who should play Snow White in the school play, Makoto claims it should be her because her bust is the biggest it's also pretty funny in context when the new Viz dub is particularly frank with the dialogue at this point.
This is even better in the DiC dub, which attempted to censor it by making her claim she had the "most acting experience and talent" Ami's reason to play Snow White was just ridiculous because the character has less lines for her to memorize so would give her more time to study for school. The others give her weirded out looks.
In the same eposide, the DiC dub give Sammy a good line to Serena, "Hey, the ham belongs in the fridge! From the DiC dub Serena: Oh no wonder the little brat annoys me so much!
She takes after YOU! Cristina Vee's delivery of the line in the Viz dub is golden. In the original dub when Serena finds out that she is Neo Queen Serenity. Her delivery is priceless. And my teacher says I won't even get out of grade school.
Ami notes that since she's here she'd pick up on her studies noting a very long list of subjects. The other girls Sweat Drop and Makoto then ices the joke when she sheppishly notes she just came for a shake what's nice is that this joke actually got preserved in both dubs. Then later, when Chibi-Usa tries to open the gate to the future and instead turns the inside of a restaurant into zero-gravity.
The girls start floating and Rei's head floats up Minako's skirt. Uh, do you MIND?!
