As far as the anime goes, the horrible dumbing down Americanization was never orignal. What DiC and CWi did was take a very good series, and PC it to the level of both disgraceful and stupidity.

I know you're pointing out at the manga here, as it was also dumbed down too and kept those lame un-needed americanized names.

It's a breath of fresh air to know that this will not be the case now.

So do you all think Funimation doing a re-dub is possible? (though I'm worried about how they'll do it...)

I wasn't talking about the anime, only the manga but I agree - the American dub was repulsive, and yet...Without it, anime and Sailor Moon wouldn't have become so popular. I guess you can call it a blessing in disguise.

I think the original for the original manga, they tried to make it more appealing by making it more familiar in the sense of Americanization; and it worked, for some time until more and more people found out about the original.

I would love if Funimation would re-dub Sailor Moon; I like many of their dubs, and I like some dubs in general better than the original Japanese (Princess Tutu, Fullmetal Alchemist, Inuyasha, Magic Knight Rayearth, Twelve Kingdoms, Witch Hunter Robin, Fruits Basket...) to name some lol. I think it's a stereotype that every dub, or American dub in particular fails - and that's far from true.

If people want to hate they will, and often times they hate for more than one reason.

Due to Sailor Moon's incredible popularity even after what...17, 18, 19 years...I should think they would be mad not to re-dub it. IT's just one of those animes (and mangas) which have touched a generation, and continue to touch and inspire various people. It's a classic, and there will never be another quite like it.

And if there is; I don't want it.

It was my first ever anime and first ever shoujo anime ( why I think the only one while I'm at it XD ).
I'm happy to hear the news, eventho I already did on the day it was relieved.
Then again, I'd be even happier if they made new anime seasons - which probably won't ever happen. Yeah, guess it won't.

Good for american fans I guess, with the manga part.
