Celebrating 20 years in Anime pt. I :*Sailor Moon* -First air date in the US: August ’95
This would be the first anime I watched way, way back in the day. Unfortunately for it and the original Dragonball, it was both plopped at 5:30 in the morning, making it pretty hard to watch it, especially since back then, I was in school.(!). Sailor Moon’s break came when USA network, and ultimately Cartoon Network aired the show on it’s animation block(USA’s Action Extreme Team, and Toonami). The show gained so much support on Toonami that they aired the third and fourth seasons on their block In 2005, the rights to the show expired, and it disappeared for almost 10 years, only to recently return thanks to Viz Media. Favorites on this show include Minako Aino(Seen in the pic), and Hotaru Tomoe/Sailor Saturn/???.
