Sailor Moon S (美少女戦士セーラームーン S Bishojo Senshi Sera Mun S) is the continuation of the Sailor Moon series that spans from Episode 90 to Episode 127. It originally aired in Japan from March 13, 1994 to February 25, 1995 on TV Asahi.

Synopsis

Sailor Moon and the senshi are up against a new set of villains: the Death Busters (Professor Tomoe, Kaorinite, the Witches 5, Mistress 9, Pharaoh 90). The Death Busters plan to rule the world by using the energy from the pure heart crystals of innocent victims, but Sailor Moon and the senshi must stop them, with the help of the outer Senshi

Dubbing History

With the popularity that the Sailor Moon series saw upon airing on Cartoon Network's Toonami block, YTV and Cartoon Network ordered more episodes to be dubbed. DiC Entertainment declined on licensing any further episodes, so Toei's then-North American branch Cloverway, Inc. stepped in to license further episodes. Optimum Productions was, once again, chosen to dub the series; however, many of the original voice actors did not return (including Sailor Moon's voice, Terri Hawkes, who was on maternity leave) and were replaced.

Cloverway's adaptation stayed relatively close to the original Japanese version, without skipping or merging any episodes and keeping the original music. Cloverway gave Optimum almost complete creative freedom as long as 77 episodes were recorded in four months. This rushed Production meant that as many as 11 episodes were recorded in each 4-hour session with the voice actors recording each line only twice, with the better take used. In addition, the new ADR director, Nicole Thuault, relied on an English interpreter to communicate with the actors given that she only spoke French. The writers at Optimum worked independently without any kind of "bible" on what the attack names, transformation phrases, etc. were supposed to be, resulting in them changing many times throughout these episodes.

Sailor Moon S premiered on Toonami in the United States from June 12, 2000 to August 1, 2000. "Uncut" versions of the Cloverway dubbed episodes were released on VHS and DVD by Pioneer Entertainment along with the Japanese audio. Though visually uncut, the dub still contained significant toning down in the script; most infamously the depiction of Sailors Uranus and Neptune as cousins rather than lesbian lovers. In 2003, Pioneer and ADV Films lost the distribution rights to the DiC and Cloverway dubs, which have not been re-distributed since.

In 2014, Viz Media announced that they had acquired the Sailor Moon anime series and would redub all the series uncut, including S. Viz's redub of S was first released on Blu-Ray and DVD from November 15, 2016 to June 20, 2017.

Notes

  • Momo is now referred to as "Melanie" or just "Melly" in Cloverway's dub. She was previously named "Melissa" in DiC's dub of the previous series.
  • Tamasaburou's gender is changed in the Cloverway English dub, likely due to him crossdressing at the end of the episode and his overall feminine appearance. Despite the sex change, her name in the dub was still Tamasaburou, which has the kanji character "郎" ("rou"), meaning "son" in it.
  • Pharaoh 90 had no dialogue during its appearance in the anime, though in the DiC dub it's given one line.
  • 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.

Transmission

Note that only the Cloverway dub has aired on Television.
