New Sailor Moon Dub is online

story imageHave you always wanted to share the silly fun of Sailor Moon with your geeklings? Now’s your chance! 23 episodes of the original, newly re-dubbed anime are now available online through Viz Media and Hulu.
If you suffered through the Sailor Moon DiC dub in the 90s, you’ll find things are different now. In Viz’s new dub, character names now match the manga. Sorry, Serena! The voice acting seems to be higher quality, with an admirable effort at matching the animated mouth movements without rushing the dialogue too much to fit the words in. Usagi is appropriately cute and whiny without being grating; my five-year-old commented more than once, “Sailor Moon is hilarious!”

The opening and ending songs, as well as the background and transformation music, remain unchanged and undubbed, which made me happy as an anime watcher who prefers subs over dubs. (I’m a sub snob.)
1 This article is a bit of an experiment. Never covered manga and related on Pipedot before. If you're interested in this topic, speak up; if you're not I probably won't submit similar articles since they're not really my cup of tea.

If it was three or for anime articles in a row I might be inclined to agree with you, but one every now and then isn't an issue. I for one am an anime fan and thought this was a nice piece to skim over. You could have chosen to just not read it if you don't like anime. For a lot of us "geeks" anime has been a part of our lives since we were clacking away on our first keyboards.

BTW, I've really enjoyed the content coming out of the pipe for the last few days. Lots of great and interesting articles. I've noticed the comments are also increasing too. Keep it up.
