Well, controversy surrounds the SailorMoon community:
Gorilla Purists vs.
The DiC worshipers. Who will win? I'll tell you who’ll win.
As corny as this
may sound, we all will win.
What do we have in common?
That is the good stuff.
Now for the bad stuff:
- We like SailorMoon.
- Some of us have websites.
- Did I mention we like SailorMoon?
- We have differing opinions on what is "good".
- Flames are constant between the groups.
- The battle lines are drawn and nobody is moving. (Trench
War I. Very bad.)
Okay. So some of it may equal out. But I don't see why
about the DiC dub. Yes, they did cut an episode and made 2
into 1. Sounds
like the Spice Girls song. *shudder* Purists make a big
deal about it, where
I find nothing wrong. Remember, the show was designed for
GIRLS, between the
AGES OF 9-12. Do you honestly think a 9-year-old likes
Jazz? You have to
remember that the censors also have to approve the show for
us. Mistake #1:
The government takes control and butchers it. Go cry to
mommy. Nothing is
going to change (especially when it involves the
The DiC Worshippers (myself included) have some
understanding about the
Japanese show. But we still go back to the show we first
started to watch,
when it came on USA and/or Cartoon Network. I don't know
about the other dub
lovers, but since the "lost" 17 episodes came on, I have
lost some interest
in SailorMoon. Unlike DragonBall Z, which has new episodes
coming in a short
time, we have SailorMoon and SailorMoon R to watch. We have
to wait for
SailorMoon S, which will come around 2020 (when or if
people agree on what
to do.) So we dub lovers either go buy fansubs or fandubs.
Or we can wait
for SailorMoon S to appear on American shores. Knowing some
people, we are
impatient and I doubt we can last much longer.
What can we do in order to see SailorMoon S? Well, duh.
Either buy fansubs
or fandubs. Spend some of your hard(?) earned(?) money.
Dubs and subs range
in cost. The Purists and Gorilla Purists already know this.
Okay, why are Purists and Gorilla Purists evil? Well,
they are not evil.
People have differing opinions on items. Some say people
take stuff too far;
you can never take anything too far. I say Purists and
Gorilla Purists have
more pressure than we do. Some people expect Purists and
Gorilla Purists to
know the seasons inside and out. *puts on "Pressure" By
Queen and David
Bowie* I feel sorry for the Purists and Gorilla Purists,
people expect too
much from them.
In closing, there is no war between DiC Dub Lovers,
Purists, and Gorilla
Purists. It is just a misunderstanding. Why can't we get along?
