Being that I'm from the older generation Transformers / Voltron were my first animes. Sailor Moon wasn't put on TV for me until I was about 14. But it was the first anime that showed me what "anime" was, but I believe I have to tie it's time frame with the same time Ronin Warriors was first put onto US TV as well. So my true introduction is split up between those two animes.
My obsession with SM shot above the others. And when I learned how much different the Sub version was from the Dub (IE; the travesty that is dub Neptune/Uranus ;__; ). I swore off dubbs for life (unless I happen to be watching with someone who can't follow subtitles).
And for those I saw back on page 2 questioning the Hentai angle on SM. There IS a Hentai SM. Called Venus 5. But it's not written or sanctioned by Naoko...so....it's up for you to decide I guess hahahaa.
I'm just glad Naoko just released the live action Sailor Moon series because it really reintroduced my love for the show again. It's a shame she won't do more then one season I would have loved to see the Outers and the Stars appear in the show.
