Naoko Takeuchi’s manga “Sailor Moon” has many fans not only in Japan but all over the world. But, of course, anime is better known than manga, but did you know that in 1993 the production of the “American version of Sailor Moon,” which was divided into an anime part and a live-action part, started?
Unfortunately, the “American version” released the pilot version, but it was shelved due to unpopularity. As a result, in 1995, the original Japanese animation was dubbed into English in the United States, and the “American version” ‘s whereabouts are unknown. Such a legendary “American version” was added to the archives of the Library of Congress and opened to the public on August 22nd.
Journalist Ray Mona, who discovered the “American version” of the video, has released it for about 10 minutes on his YouTube account. People who have watched it have given their candid impressions one after another.
“A young actress plays the live-action part, but in the anime part, the bishoujo warriors are generally veterans and look strong. Even on the Internet, “This isn’t Sailor Moon,” “I’m not cute at all,” “I’m going to be a cheerleader for the American football team during the day,” “I don’t look like a girl, I just look like an old lady.”
“For better or worse, it feels like an American comic,” “I can nod my head in the store.” Many people seem to have realized the high quality of manga and animation.” (Female magazine reporter)
