List Of Sailor Moon Episodes

The 200 episodes of the Japanese anime series Sailor Moon were adapted from the eighteen volume manga series of the same name written and illustrated by Naoko Takeuchi. The episodes were directed by Junichi Sato, Kunihiko Ikuhara, Takuya Igarashi, Takao Yoshizawa and Hiromichi Matano, and produced by TV Asahi and Toei Animation. The first four seasons were dubbed and released in North America by DIC Entertainment and Cloverway. The series concentrates on the adventures of Usagi Tsukino, a schoolgirl who learns that she and several other girls can transform into superheroines, Sailor Senshi, and fight against evil forces that threaten the world.

The series aired from March 7, 1992, to February 8, 1997, on TV Asahi in Japan. In North America, the episodes aired from September 11, 1995, to December 21, 2000, on YTV in Canada, and in first-run syndication (and later on Cartoon Network) in the United States. In addition to the 200 episodes (159 in North America), three feature-length films were produced, as well as five short films. The fifth season, Sailor Stars, has not been licensed for release in English. As of May 2004, the series has officially been taken off the air in all English-speaking countries due to lapsed licenses which have not been renewed; this news was met with great controversy among English-speaking fans.

The first two seasons of the series, Sailor Moon and Sailor Moon R, were sold across 20 VHS volumes in Japan in 1995, and by the end of that year, each volume had sold more than 300,000 copies. In 2001, ADV Films released the English dubs of the first two seasons to 20 VHS volumes. The two first English language seasons were released on 14 Region 1 DVDs in 2002 by ADV. ADV also released subtitled and uncut versions of the first two seasons in two separate Limited Edition DVD box sets in 2003. Pioneer Entertainment released the English dubbed (edited and uncut), and subtitled versions of the third and fourth seasons, Sailor Moon S and Sailor Moon SuperS respectively, on DVD and VHS in 2001 and 2002.

At the start of Sailor Moon S, the episode numbers for the dub were adjusted by YTV to match those of the original Japanese version. There had previously been a gap in numbering because of the seven episodes that had been cut or merged in the previous two seasons. Because of this, episode numbers 83-89 were never used for the dub. However in the United States, 83-89 were used for the dub on Cartoon Network, and did not match those of the original Japanese version.

Famous quotes containing the words list of, episodes, moon, sailor and/or list:

    The advice of their elders to young men is very apt to be as unreal as a list of the hundred best books.
    Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. (1841–1935)

    What is a novel if not a conviction of our fellow-men’s existence strong enough to take upon itself a form of imagined life clearer than reality and whose accumulated verisimilitude of selected episodes puts to shame the pride of documentary history?
    Joseph Conrad (1857–1924)

    Like the moon her kindness is.
    If kindness I may call
    What has no comprehension in’t,
    But is the same for all
    As though my sorrow were a scene
    Upon a painted wall.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    He is the best sailor who can steer within the fewest points of the wind, and extract a motive power out of the greatest obstacles. Most begin to veer and tack as soon as the wind changes from aft, and as within the tropics it does not blow from all points of the compass, there are some harbors which they can never reach.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Shea—they call him Scholar Jack—
    Went down the list of the dead.
    Officers, seamen, gunners, marines,
    The crews of the gig and yawl,
    The bearded man and the lad in his teens,
    Carpenters, coal-passers—all.
    Joseph I. C. Clarke (1846–1925)
