Sailor Moon R (美少女戦士セーラームーン R Bishojo Senshi Sera Mun R) is the continuation of the Sailor Moon series that spans from episode 47 through episode 89. It was produced Toei Animation and directed by Junichi Sato and Kunihiko Ikuhara. The series originally aired in Japan from March 6, 1993 to March 12, 1994 on TV Asahi in Japan.

Synopsis

After the defeat of the Dark Kingdom, and now no memory of those events, the Sailor Guardians now face a new threat with the arrival of two aliens named Ail and An on Earth. They disguise themselves as students in the school Usagi attends, and begin stealing energy using their Cardian Monsters to sustain their "mother," the Makaiju. To assist Sailor Moon in defeating them, Luna and Artemis are forced to restore the Sailor Guardian's memories of the past.

The story later takes a new turn with the appearance of a mysterious girl named Chibiusa, who has an inexplicable knowledge about the Silver Crystal. The girl stays at Usagi's house, pretending to be a cousin of hers. In addition, she is pursued by a new group of enemies, the Black Moon Clan.


Dubbing History

Sailor Moon R was originally dubbed alongside the first series by DiC Entertainment, with much of the same mandated edits as the previous season.

The dub of R first aired on the Canadian channel YTV from October 25 to November 28, 1995 and later in Syndication in the United States the same year. Due to DiC only being interested in a standard 65-episode cartoon only the first 25 episodes were dubbed. However Irwin Toys ended up paying for the final 17 episodes to be dubbed in 1997. Due to the time gap, Sailor Mars and Tuxedo Mask's voice actors were unavailable and had to be replaced. Compared to the first series, which had 6 episodes removed, only 1 was removed from R (episode 67).

This would be the last series licensed by DiC Entertainment. When the show proved popular in re-airings on Cartoon Network's Toonami block, Cloverway, Inc. and Pioneer paid for licensing, dubbing and distribution for S and SuperS. The show was still produced by Optimum Productions, who also provided the dubbing for season 1 and 2 for DiC.

In 2014, Viz Media announced that they had acquired the Sailor Moon anime series and would redub all the series uncut, including R. Viz's dub of R was first released on Blu-Ray and DVD from July 14 to October 27, 2015.

Additional Voices

Notes

  • Due to Viz not using any custom credits (just the original Japanese credits); most of the voice cast (aside from the main cast revealed by press releases and the actors) is unknown.
  • In 1997, the series had an English dub that was recorded in Malaysia by Speedy Video. The dub has the same poor quality as their Dragon Ball Z movie dubs. It was released on VCD. At least 6 volumes were released consisting of almost the entire Makai Tree arc; it is unknown if any further volumes have been made.

Transmission

Note that only the DiC dub has aired on television.
