I actually really want the new sailor moon dub to come out already even if it means buying dvds
ugh I’m such a sailor moon nerd even long past my weeaboo phase, I mean I watched the original dub on TV as a kid but then I became one of those anti-dub anime purists when I was 12 and I eventually got the first season and all the movies subbed on dvd and I finally watched Stars online, the only thing I haven’t watched is SuperS but it wasn’t a good season anyway
but like… the original dub holds a special nostalgic place in my heart, but the original show is actually really good
