Title (Japanese) Bishoujo senshi Sailor Moon Sailor Stars

book cover

Fantasy Novel

Classification shoujo
Review I saw Sailor Stars (that's what the fancy katakana says) on POLSAT. This is a later series, with 8 sailor warriors. Astonishingly, this is the Japanese version with a partial Polish overdub. Sounds wierd, but if the soundtrack doesn't drive you to distraction, it's better than the first series, with super designs, a more extended story scheme, and lots of lovely sailors talking Japanese. The three Sailor Stars are a boy pop group, and also powerful magical allies who wear a rather startling black bra-and-pants uniform! If you're a 14 year old girl, annoy your brother/father/boyfriend till they set up the hardware for you. You won't regret it (nor will they once they see the Sailor miniskirts).

Having seen a few episodes from all the segments, I'd say that Sailor Moon S and Sailor Moon Stars are definitely the best bits and also the segments most likely to appeal to adult viewers. They have better artwork, and also the adult senshi, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. They include on occasion images to die for (like the scene with four Sailors bound to crystal crosses.) I still fast-forward through most of the fighting bits, though.
