The American Sailor Moon that never aired (for a good reason too)

Ah yes, Sailor Moon. One of the greatest mahou shoujos in anime. For some reason, the execs at Toon Makers thought it would be a good idea to produce an Americanized Sailor Moon. Thankfully, it never really got off the ground. However, this 2 minute promo was made to show what it would’ve been life. As you could probably tell, it would’ve been an instant disaster. According to Comics Alliance “The idea behind the show seems to be that Serena and her Burger King Kids Club-Approved gang of school-chums would be filmed in live action as they got up to highly coordinated line-dances and Mayim Bialik cosplay, but when they actually transformed into their super-heroic alter-egos, the show would switch it up into animated action. As much as that sort of defeats the purpose of doing a live-action show, it is a pretty interesting take on things — especially considering what the plan was for the action.”

See, this is why westernizing anime doesn’t work. Isn’t that right, EVOLUTION?!

I watch anime on nearly a daily basis. I also try to read some manga every now and then.
