efore I get started I'll like to get a few things out of the way. First of all, I'm going to make a lot of rants about this anime since it's one of my least paborito animes. Second, I am only reviewing the classic anime nothing will be judged from the manga ,crystal,SuperS, etc.(meaning only up to episode 127) This review is pretty much me having a blast ripping this thing apart one sa pamamagitan ng one until an angered tagahanga decides to give me a piece of their mind. In other words if you hate this ipakita too, this will be an enjoyable review/rant for you. If don't you'll probably hate me. With all of that out of the way let's begin.
When I started this anime, I truly expected that I would enjoy it but, I guess I was wrong this
is actually too cheesy and predictable to be called good quality. Especially since madami than half of the anime is basically action ipakita cliches. The villains try to get control,destroy kingdoms or anything else that is a generic and evil goal. The heroine/hero falls in pag-ibig with a attractive person, and ends up with that person. The villains usually have no depth apart from being evil or the villains decide they don’t want to be evil because of love. The Heroines/heroes always have things going their way, etc. This ipakita is almost identical to it’s brother “The Original Power Rangers ”. Pretty much everything is skippable, there’s rarely anything new added into the anime. Even as you continue to watching it feels like you are watching the same bland episode over and over. The formal stays the same through the whole series with only slight changes and trust me that gets annoying very fast. Especially if what you started out with was very generic in the first place. Most of the anime was pretty hard to go through. I know it was made in the 1990’s but, take in mind most of these cliches are from like the beginning of action shows.
Another huge problem Sailor Moon had is it’s inability to create an emotional response. The first reason I believe Sailor Moon fails to create an emotional response is that the creators fail to develop the villain’s character and instead try to siksikan in a generic sense that the villains are missing something from their lives. It is also to predictable that they are getting ready to kill off the villain. On tuktok of that if the villains do survive they usually turn good and get their happy ending after that. The only one who did die for good was Nephrite who didn’t get any development besides “I’m in pag-ibig with a 14 taon old” and then dies after that is established to death(no pun intended) and the fact is that most of the villains deserved what fate they got. It wasn’t funny.I just wasn’t deep enough into the ipakita to cry when the villains died. Same goes for the bayani because we all know sailor moon doesn’t take enough risks to not guarantee everything will turn out just fine.Not saying it didn’t get me at least once (it did) but the emotion was Nawawala after that.
I should probably be a little madami positive though. I don’t just want to rant about the ipakita and make a lame complement like “the music/art style is nice”; it wouldn’t be fair to the fans who actually took the time and effort to read this and are trying their hardest, to be polite and respect my opinion. So I am going to go madami positive for a little bit because I don’t want to make the impression that everything about this ipakita is bad. Mostly because that simply isn’t true there are good things this ipakita has to offer.
First of all the universe created in this anime is creative,ingenious and unique. In fact I think this is probably why it’s so popular. I’m going to disagree with the NC on the theory that the formula made it popular. The first reason for that being that at the time this type of universe was created it actually was pretty popular. The whole concept of a world with action against evil and good, add magic, focus on friendships and romance of the main character, add in a little about puwang and you have a popular concept (especially in the 1990’s). Though it doesn’t sound that distinct; it somehow became unique sa pamamagitan ng how they use and explain the universe that they made; too bad they didn’t focus on it that much it could’ve been my guilty pleasure.
I also like how some of the characters are put together. One of them being Usagi herself. Usagi is actually a pretty well put together character. Her personality is pretty unique, even today I don’t know any other characters who act like her. I really like how they develop her to get madami mature as you go on and she’s a very likable character even if she’s very annoying at times.I also think Sailor Saturn is a well-written character.Though you have to get to episode 100
to get to her so, I’m not going to spoil anything about her but, she’s a really good character.Besides those two characters I don’t really think any of the others are interesting or well put together characters.
pangkalahatang this is an anime I won’t suggest watching if you are looking for something new and distinct to watch but, it’s an anime I think you should at least give it a chance before judging.It’s entertaining in the sense of getting a strong opinion out of you and it’s harmless though cheesy and pretty much everywhere...
I mean everywhere…..
again I think it is worth giving a try even though I really don’t like it.
