Sailor Moon in India refers to the version of the Sailor Moon anime which was translated into Gujarati and aired in the Gujarat state of India under the title Sailormoon.

Translation and Channels[edit]

All five seasons were shown on ETV (now Colors Gujarati) from late 2009 until 2015.

Censorship and Changes[edit]

  • Most transformation and attack phrases were left unchanged.
  • Similar to the Albanian dub, the dubbing studio did not buy the rights from TOEI or another rights holding company. Music was re-used in order to cover the parts where the characters were speaking.
  • The opening sequence with "Moonlight Densetsu" was used for all five seasons. The music was slightly altered and the lyrics dubbed into Gujarati. Two versions were used, each performed by different singers.

Transformation and Attacks[edit]

Below are listed only the phrases which were changed.

Crystal[edit]

A Gujarati-dubbed version of Sailor Moon Crystal was produced in 2015 for brodcast on Gujarati Colours, but only the first season was dubbed due to low ratings.

Censorship and Changes[edit]

  • The first opening sequence was altered so the part where the logo was shown was replaced with the last scene from the opening, in addition to the English logo. To avoid repetition, the last scene was replaced with footage from Moon Prism Power, Make Up.
