"The Sailor Moon R Movie is by far the best of the movies. It has an intriguing plot, something that American viewers don't get to see much in Sailor Moon, and great art as usual. The best part, however, is that it's translated word for word from the Japanese. Which means DiC didn't hack it apart and edit it for younger children.Take note, this is definitely not for younger children. First of all, the main villain is gay. To quote Mercury: "It appears Mamoru is popular even with the boys." There's also cursing, but it's very minor. Mostly by Jupiter and the villain. The last thing is that there's some nudity. The villain yanks Sailor Moon's brooch, which detransforms her... however, ribbons still fly about to cover key areas, so don't worry.You'll absolutely love this video. The somewhat more adult aspect of it makes it even more enjoyable. The laughs are endles... and not all are intentional. Many people find the scouts' chanting of their names during their transformations very amusing (Serrraaa Juptah!) and the cheesy British music during Moon Scepter Elimination is to die for!Get this movie, or you'll regret it."
A rose by any other voice actress...

"By now you've probably ascertained the Sailor Moon R movie is, by general consensus, the favorite of the three. But how does the dub hold up? Well, it's not Princess Mononoke, but it is a Silver Millenium ahead of the butchering done to the battle with Beryl. Yes, the dramatic tension is toned down, and yes, there are a few censoring edits, but they're minor. And quite understandable considering the age level the video is geared towards. (Pioneer certainly isn't about to tell three year olds that the best way to revive someone is to suffocate them until they wake up.) Children who love Sailor Moon will adore this dubbed version. As for the older crowd (and I presume we all already own the subtitled version) the dub grows on you quickly. I've always been willing to forgive poor Terri Hawkes's cheesy dialogue in favor of the sheer energy she gives to her character. Stephanie Morganstern in particular screams a very passionate "Don't!" as Venus rushes to her Moon Princess's defense. We mourn the loss of "Moon Revenge" but "The Power of Love" works surprisingly well in it's place. At first I thought Fiore's voice sounded too adolescent, but in retrospect it gave the character a snese of warmth that the Demando style aloofness of the sub never really achieved. My advice: buy the sub and give it all of your otaku honor. Then buy the dub, cringe through the less-than-inspired plant puns, throw your best MST commentary at the television, then calmly admit to yourself that down inside, you really do love these girls deeply and are already searching Amazon for the S Movie's dub."
THE BEST OUT OF 3

"The Sailor Moon R Movie is finally going to be dubbed! I don't know about anyone else but i couldn't help myself so i got the subtitled version of this Movie on Amazon.com a month ago and Loved it! This movie contains Loe, hate, and pure happiness. It was the sweetest movie every created and probably one of the best in the three Sailor Moon Movies! So please what are you waiting for, no more annoying subtitles...get something you can understand for this GReat Movie! Also be sure to get the other two Sailor Moon movies when they come out in the dubbed version also! I have heard these are un-edited too!"
