I'd like to see her transformation spin.

EvilHomer - 2015-03-16

Wouldn't be my first choice, but she'll do.

You've got a stupid, blonde, inexplicably popular cartoon character. All she needs now is crossed eyes.

EvilHomer - 2015-03-17

No, this is Sailor Moon, not Applejack.

At lest this isn't the live action Sailor Moon that was wheelchair bound.

You're wrong. This video just cuts out the controversial "Moon Polio Magic" storyline.

It's really quick but it's in there.

It... just now occurred to me that she doesn't actually sail anything. There was never a boat. She's not actually a sailor.

I feel betrayed.

There was an episode where she, Mars, and Mercury were on a cruise ship. That should count.

But she's strongs to the finish!

It's a reference to their outfits, which are patterned on a Japanese school uniform known as the sailor fuku. This name, in turn, was derived from the fact that said school uniforms were based on the outfits of the British Royal Navy.

In-universe, it's also important to remember that the Sailor Senshi were all natives to a Lunar kingdom that existed in ancient times, long predating the English language, let alone the first recorded use of the word "sailor" in it's currently intelligible context (according to various etymological sources, this occured in the 16th century). It is entirely possible, indeed likely, that in the Moonese language the word "Sailor" meant something entirely different from what it means today - not only were there no/ few tall ships on the moon, thus rendering the word contextually meaningless in it's original incarnation as "someone who travels the ocean on a sail-powered boat", but it also seems to have been a noble title of some prestige, like "knight" or "Viscountess". Indeed, it's even possible that the word "Sailor" is wrong, the result of an English mistranslation! In the original Japanese media, the word used to identify the girls is セーラー (Sērā). In a normal context, this would indeed translate to "Sailor", but only assuming that the word they are using is English in origin, and not Moonese! Why would Moonese girls living in Japan be using an English term for a position that has existed in their society for thousands of years, if not more? It *could* be that they are actually *Sērās*, and not Sailors - a false cognate, leading to a mistranslation that has gone uncorrected now for decades.

I have to think that there are at least a handful of Korean-American seamen whose lives have been ruined by this show.

There's no greater sin than losing seamen.

Cena_mark - 2015-03-17

I don't know about the navy, but I've never heard a sailor being referred to as "sailor ______". Though It would be awful to be Seaman Swallows.

Donald Duck has been cosplaying this whole time.

Donald Duck is a veteran and you should thank him for his service.
