SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT EPISODE VII ARE THE GUARDIAN SENSHI TO BE FOREVER ALONE? One of the major complaints about the Sailor Moon franchise is that it seems that Usagi, Chibiusa, and Haruka & Michiru are the only Senshi who … Continue reading

From The Archives: The Feminism of Sailor Moon

The Animation Art of Sailor Moon: Ikuko Itoh – Sailor Moon R Opening Sequence II

Observations: Not going to analyze the lyrics of “Moonlight Densetsu,” since everyone knows that song already. Similarly to how the 2nd OP for Season 1 started out, the first thing we see is the moon in the night sky, surrounded … Continue reading

The Animation Art of Sailor Moon: Ikuko Itoh – Episode 159

Episode 159: Chibiusa’s Little Rhapsody of Love         Observations: I’m gonna be rather opinionated today. I am not a fan of the Chibiusa/Pegasus pairing. I’m fine with it if you like it. Watch out for falling rant bombs. My, my, who’s … Continue reading

The Animation Art of Sailor Moon: Ikuko Itoh – “Rashiku” Ikimasho

SuperS Ending Sequence II: “Rashiku” Ikimasho    I was planning to go back and show off the opening/ending animation sequences Ikuko Itoh animated, so I thought I’d start with “Rashiku Ikimashou” since that’s the ending theme used for SuperS. This is … Continue reading

The Animation Art of Sailor Moon: Ikuko Itoh – Episode 139

Episode 139: Try for the Best of Japan! The Worries of a Beautiful Girl Swordsman         Observations: We’ve got a huuuuuge jump down in quality, especially in writing, from episodes 124/125 to episode 139. Itoh’s animation is decent, but this is … Continue reading

The Animation Art of Sailor Moon: Ikuko Itoh – Episode 125

Episode 125: A Bright Shooting Star! Saturn and the Messiah         Observations: This is my absolute favourite episode, so I’m going to discuss a LOT. I took over 200 screenshots, and cutting the extras was HARD. Check out the use of … Continue reading

Episode 124: The Horror of the Approaching Shadow! Eight Senshi in a Tough Battle         Observations: Episodes 124 and 125 are my absolute favourite episodes in the entire series, so I’m probably going to gush a LOT. The episode starts off … Continue reading
