i was in high school, when i first saw sailormoon and started wathing it. i have become a super otaku of this anime and even collected lots and lots of stuff and even did cross-stitching! now, its almost 10 years ago since my sailormoon fever but i still love sailormoon! i dont collect SMN stuffs anymore though. but whenever, i feel like it, i take out my SMN cds and watch them. ^__^

Sailor Moon - Sailor Moon--the first Japanese anime I have ever seen.So this work is very important in my life :D.
Hi,secretbear! I began to saw it when I was in primary school,then I became a OTAKU of this anime.I spent much money on it.This is the first Japanese anime I have ever seen in my life so that Sailor moon is very important to me. My friends around me nearly have seen this anime,if someone tells us that she/he has never seen it before,this person will become an odd person in our circle.His/her life isn't complete!

hi shinjiao! I love your avatar btw. ^__^ I love gaara! yeah. sailormoon was really popular during its heydays. when me and my friends were talking about sailormoon at school, anyone who would hear wouldn't be so lost coz they are familiar with the anime. even those that are not fan of anime are familiar with this. it was really popular and i've spent a lot on this too! LOL I'm a super otaku of this too and it made me watched more anime other than it. ^__^

Hi,secretbear! Sailormoon,it is an unforgettable anime in my life.I remember when I was young,if this anime showed on TV,I wouldn't miss each episode.Moreover,I always wrote something important down on a notebook.^_^Now I'm a college school student,but when my friends and I talked about Sailormoon,we still have lots of words to say. By the way,if there was a Gaara in the world,I hope he would be my boyfriend.HAHA~

I also have a notebook with information on sailormoon! I have there the list of all the characters also the villains, and then what was the moon kingdom called, their transformation yells and powers... everything. then I have another notebook where I wrote the summary of all the episodes of sailormoon super. LOL all handwritten. ^__^;; and I have a collection of sailormoon notebooks too. I also have a small towel with sailormoon and artemis. LOL I wish I could meet someone like gaara. he'd be super cool for a friend. we'd use his power non-stop. LOL

well, i saw it about 14 years ago, and i think that's enough time for anyone to outgrow an average anime. but i do still love the manga. what can i say, the mangas are always so much better than the anime. i can read them over and over again and not get tired of them

well for me, i dont see sailormoon as an average anime since, like i said, its the first anime that i saw and loved. in fact, that made me interested with the solar system and the planets. ^__^ i like the manga too. i love naoko takeuchi's art! very beautiful. back then i have lots of sailormoon manga images in my computer. but they got erased when my pc got infected by a virus and it had to be reformatted. but i have lots of sailormoon cards and stickers. ^__^

I'm almost embarrassed to say it, but I'm not certain if I've ever actually seen an episode of the series. I got into watching anime later on after that series had ended. "InuYasha," "Shikabane Hime," and (the all-too brief) "Full Moon," are a few of my favorites. I must say, though, that it is clear that many of the series I've watched have owed a bit (sometimes, more than a bit) to "Sailor Moon."

Yeah, Sailor Moon is already a classic! A lot of shoujo animes are based on it.

Sailormoon is one of my first anime so I really place importance in this anime. I also have the manga (I even have the softcopy of it). I even watched the movies and the OST. I love this anime a lot. My favorite's Makoto/Sailor Jupiter :D It's a great movie. I missed it a lot when it finally ended. By the way, are you aware that the creator of "Yuyu Hakusho (a.k.a Ghost Fighteres & Poltergeist Report) is married to Naoko Takeushi, Sailormoon's creator.

Hi keihimekawa! It's so nice to meet another Sailor Moon fan here in myLot! I have never read the manga of Sailor Moon but I've seen a lot of the artworks and Naoko Takeuchi really draws beautifully! I miss it once in a while but I can watch it anytime because I have some dvds of it. No! I wasn't aware of that! That's nice to know.

I was still in grade school when I first watched Sailormoon. I really loved it back then. I still like it a little now at present but not so much anymore. Probably because of the many different great Animes out there. This is the first Anime that I have ever watched. But I have to say this, the Sailormoon manga is A LOT BETTER than the anime itself. I never get tired of reading it over and over again. :)

Hi ellen! I've seen some of the Sailor Moon manga but I never really did read all of it. I love the drawing style of Naoko Takeuchi though. Really beautiful.

I like Sailor Moon a lot, but when I used to watch it I was a kid so I kind of forgot about it after the only channel that used to show it was gone... I spent 4 years (or more) without watching any Anime... When I started watching animes again, Sailor moon was the first one I wanted to watch and try to remember everything... I like it a lot but I have to confess that I've only watched the old seasons... Sailor Moon Stars or any other seasons I haven't seen yet because I'm now watching other animes ^^

Sailormoon Sailorstars is the last season of Sailormoon. you have to watch it! its good too. when sailormoon was still being aired in one of our local channel, i never managed to finish it. i had to buy it and it was good that i did. but you still like Sailormoon right? even if you're not watching it anymore?

I know it's weird, but I was never really into Sailor Moon. I watched it a few times in the morning, but it was never an anime I ever connected with. So, I don't think it's possible for me to have outgrown it, lol. But I remember the first anime I fell in love with -- Rurouni Kenshin, and I still haven't outgrown it!

Hey, another one who did cross-stiching! I embroidered Tuxedo Mask on a small pillow in school. :D I wouldn't say I've outgrown Sailor Moon completly, I still watch it from time to time and I love the characters. Maybe I've developed from a huge fan to a nostalgic fan?

Heh, it's been eleven years since they started to send SM here. I'm not as big fan anymore, so in that sense I guess you could say I've outgrown it... but I still have the manga and parts of the anime ^_^

11 years! imagine that... its been so long isnt it... i guess i have outgrown too.. a little.. ^__^;; coz any image from the anime i see draws me where that image is. like if i see something on a display in the mall, i'd immetdiately go to it. ^__^;; and that immediately is really in a hurry and excited rush of feet. LOL wow! i envy you! i dont have the manga and i only have the sailormoon sailorstars vcds. oh, i have one manga and it was given to me by a male friend who is like a brother to me and believe it or not, is a huge sailormoon fan before. LOL he even gave me a lot of printed pics and a poster. before, i never thought of him being weird because of that. but now, i think i do. LOL

Actually I'm STILL into Sailormoon :) That for me was the one that started it all. Now I'm actually collecting FIGURES.. When I was a kid, I used to be content going to the shop with my notebook and pen and righting down the prices...sort of a wishlist. NOW I go out and BUY them. Ironic really, a kid that used to do maths in a toy store to a grown up that buys toys T_T

i am so jealous! ^__^;; i used to go to the stores too to adore those sailormoon figures. but i dont write the prices though, you're odd on that part. LOL i couldnt afford to buy those expensive toy figures. but now that i can, i still dont buy. because now i think its impractical to buy some expensive toys even if that was my favorite anime character. ^__^;; i rarely go to the stores too. but i still buy some stuffs, the not so expensive ones like stationaries, stickers, notebooks, etc. ^__^ at least i can use them. but y'know, i still dream of buying even just one sailormoon toy figure. maybe that time will come if i have so much money. ^__^

I dicovered Sailor Moon in freshman year of high school. (It was the only thing on at 5:30am lmao)I didn't get to get too many of the collectors items, since it wasn't too popular ins my little piece of the nation, but I fell in love with it nonetheless. I even wrote a fanfiction on it, although I never finished *blush* I do agree with previous responders, I've come to realize the show is a little girly, but I still had to purchase the 5th season (Something DIC never intended to show in the United States), and at about to be 26 years old (Started watching at 14) watch it every now and again. Sometimes you need to be that 10 year old watching it for the first time.

your profile image is cute! ^__^ i've written some fanfiction too on sailormoon but i didnt upload it in the internet. it was like for personal reading. ^__^;; i tried to get my bestfriend to read it but she wasnt really into sailormoon nor even anime for that matter and then i got tired of waiting for her comments so i took back the copies and enjoyed it with myself. lol i admit there was times when i thought it was too childish for me when i reached the age 20+ but then i just couldnt get over it. actually, i had to buy the sailorstars season too. ^__^;; and i loved it! my sailormoon collection is still intact somewhere in my room. ^__^
