Sailor Moon in Latin America refers to the Spanish-translated versions of the Sailor Moon series released in Latin America.

Anime[edit]

Translation and Channels[edit]

The Sailor Moon anime was dubbed by Intertrack and produced by Cloverway in Mexico, beginning in 1995. The dub was directed by Gloria Rocha for the first season, and by Patricia Acevedo (who also provided the voice for Usagi Tsukino/Sailor Moon) for the second through fifth seasons.

All five seasons were dubbed, as were the three movies. None of the specials were dubbed. All of the episodes were aired without major changes except for episode 89, which was the only episode never dubbed. The Sailor Moon R movie was dubbed under the title "La leyenda de la Reina Xenian" (Legend of Queen Xenian), the Sailor Moon S movie as "La princesa de la luna" (The princess from the moon), and the Sailor Moon SuperS movie as "El milagro del agujero negro de los sueños" (The miracle of the black hole of dreams").

From February 1996 until 1999, the show aired on Mexican local station, Azteca 7. At first it aired Monday-Friday from 3:00-4:00 pm, but it was later moved to Saturdays from 11:00 am-12:00 pm. Reruns aired on Cartoon Network Latin America. In August 2017, 21 years after its original broadcast, it returned to Azteca 7, which showed an hour (three episodes) of the show. Other Latin American local stations which aired the anime included Telecentro in the Dominican Republic, from 1995 to 1998; Canal Uno and Caracol Televisión in Columbia, from 1996 to 2000; CHV and ETC tv in Chile, from 1996 to 2002 and again from 2011 to 2015; Magic Kids in Argentina, from 1996 to 1998; and Repretel 6 in Costa Rica, from 1996 to 1999 and again from 2016 to 2018 (only the first season). The first season was broadcast on on Bitme in Mexico, showing every Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 to 11:30 am beginning January 20, 2020, and the second season is currently showing on Canal 1 in Columbia every day at various times.

Home Media Releases[edit]

Several episodes from the first season were commercially released on VHS in Mexico and Argentina, by Comarex and PLUS, respectively. Comarex also released the three movies on VHS in Mexico.

In 2011 Towers Entertainment began to release remastered DVDs in Mexico and Latin America. These limited edition sets, called "Talk Boxes" because they had a button at the bottom that played a recorded message, were colored metal boxes that featured art of a specific character of the series. The message that played when the button was pushed was recorded by the original voice actress of the character on the cover, except for Talk Box Jupiter, which was voiced by Mariana Ortiz, daughter of the original voice actress, Araceli de León, who passed away in 1999. Each DVD set included Japanese and the Spanish tracks from Intertrack, Spanish subtitles, and remastered video and audio taken from the R2 DVDs. They also included newly recorded dubs for episode previews, as these were not recorded during the original dub of the series. However, due to limited budget, only the character for that Talk Box would be talking through the preview; for example, in "Talk Box Venus," even if Luna and Usagi were talking in a preview in the original Japanese version, Minako would be telling the story of the new episode from her point of view in the dub audio.

  • Sailor Moon Vol. 1, "Talk Box Moon," was released November 6, 2011, contained episodes 1-23, and featured the voice of Patricia Acevedo as Sailor Moon.
  • Sailor Moon Vol. 2, "Talk Box Mercury," was released July 14, 2012, contained episodes 24-46, and featured the voice of Rossy Aguirre as Sailor Mercury.
  • Sailor Moon R Vol. 1, "Talk Box Mars," was released April 29, 2013, contained episodes 47-69, and featured the voice of Mónica Manjarrez as Sailor Mars.
  • Sailor Moon R Vol. 2, "Talk Box Jupiter," was released October 26, 2013, contained episodes 70-89, and featured the voice of Mariana Ortiz as Sailor Jupiter.
  • Sailor Moon S Vol. 1, "Talk Box Venus," was released November 8, 2014, contained episodes 90-107, and featured the voice of Maria Fernanda Morales as Sailor Venus.

In 2014, Entertainment Supplies released all episodes from the fifth season on 9 DVDs exclusively for the Argentinian market.

Censorship and Changes[edit]

  • The first ending sequence which accompanied "Heart Moving" in the first season was used for the first three seasons, but was replaced by the one that accompanied "Rashiku Ikimasho" in the fourth, and by the one which accompanied "Kaze mo Sora mo Kitto" in the fifth.
  • Zoisite and Fisheye were both changed to be women, just like in the English dub, but starting from episode 137, there were some hints that Fisheye was a man, and starting from episode 140, Fisheye became officially a man instead. He still had the same female dub actress, however, which led many Latin American fans to believe that Fisheye was a woman. According to an interview in the Argentine magazine Lazer in 1997, Gloria Rocha stated that the actress, Magda Giner, was selected to play Zoisite because the production staff did not have enough information about the character and his relationships and were not certain if Zoisite was supposed to be male or female.
  • Zoisite's death from episode 35 was partially cut when the episode was first shown in the 2017 run on Azteca 7, but the scene was intact in all subsequent reruns.
  • The Holy Grail was renamed to "Copa Lunar" (Moon Cup), and the Messiah was mentioned once by that name and later renamed to "Enviado del Bien" (Envoy of Good) or "Enviado del Mal" (Envoy of Evil). Star Gentle Uterus was also changed in its translation, and became "Estrella de Sailor Maker" (Star of Sailor Maker).
  • In episode 104, instead of talking about his "little elephant," Shinnosuke yelled "¡Por el Poder del Prisma Lunar!" (By the Power of the Moon Prism!), Sailor Moon's first transformation command.

There were no other significant changes to the series: the Senshi deaths, the nude scenes, and Haruka and Michiru's relationship all remained. The Sailor Starlights still changed gender when they transformed, and were even given different voice actors in their male and female forms.

Names[edit]

In the Latin American Spanish dub, the Inner Senshi were called "Sailor Scouts," the same as in the English dub. The Outer Senshi were called "Sailor Guerreras" (Sailor Warriors). Sailor Pluto's name was changed to "Sailor Plut;" this was reportedly because of copyright issues with Disney, but no official reason was ever given. In most cases, the Senshi's civilian names were changed to use the English dub names for the first two seasons, though with their original surname (for example, instead of becoming "Molly Baker," Naru was "Molly Osaka"). Some characters had different names, however; for example, Umino was "Kelvin" in the first two seasons and "Kevin" in the third and fourth, while Yuuichirou was dubbed "Nicholas." From near the end of the second season onwards, however, most of the new characters kept their original names; Momoko, the exception, was renamed "Momo." The Dark Kingdom was called the "Negaverse," and the Shitennou were given the same names as in the English dub. Almost all the Youma were kept unnamed, and were sometimes simply referred to as "Maligna."

Ail and An were named "Alan" and "Ann," and their civilian names were "Steven Alpha" and "Melissa Alpha." The Cardians were called "Naipes," the Spanish word for playing cards.

The Spectre Sisters were renamed "Las Hermanas de la Persecución" (The Hunting Sisters), and were given the names of the actual minerals from which the original names were derived, so they were Kermesite, Berthierite, Calaverite, and Petzite. Rubeus kept his name, but the other members of the Black Moon Clan were given the Spanish-translated versions of their namesake gems; Esmeraude became "Esmeralda," Saphir became "Zafiro," and Prince Demande became "Diamante." Black Lady was referred to as "La Dama de la Oscuridad" (The Lady of Darkness). Droids were called "Droidos."

Most of the villains in Sailor Moon S either kept their names or had them directly translated, as in "Dama 9" (Mistress 9) or "Faraón 90" (Pharaoh 90). The only exceptions to this were Eudial, who was renamed "Yuyal," and Kaolinite, who was renamed "Kaolinette." The Death Busters were called either "Los Maldecidos de la Muerte" (The Cursed of Death) or "Los Cazadores de la Muerte" (The Death Hunters), but later their name was kept as a direct translation. The Daimons were called "Demonios" (Demons).

In the Sailor Moon SuperS season, most of the main villains' names were either kept or directly translated, though Queen Nehellenia became "Queen Neherenia." Hawk's Eye became "Ojo de Águila" (Eagle's Eye) for unknown reasons, and PallaPalla became "ParaPara." The Lemures became either "Sombras" (Shadows) or "Comesueños" (Dream-Eaters). In the Sailor Moon SuperS movie, Perle became "Peruru," Poupelin became "Púrpura" (Purple), and Queen Badiane became "Miss Vadiyanu."

Sailor Galaxia and the Sailor Animamates kept their names, although they were pronounced like the Japanese version (e.g. "Aluminum Seilen" or "Red Kurow"), but the Phages were referred to as "Zombies." Princess Kakyuu was called "Princesa de Fuego" (Princess of Fire), "Princesa del Planeta de Fuego" (Princess of the Fire Planet), or "Princesa del Planeta de las Flores de Fuego" (Princess of the Fire Flowers Planet).

Phrases[edit]

In the original, Mamoru called Usagi "odango atama," a reference to her hairstyle. In the Latin American Spanish dub, Darien called her "cabeza de chorlito," which translates approximately as "scatterbrain" or "airhead." Instead of teasing her about her hair, he was actually being rude to her. Haruka called her "cabeza de bombón" (marshmallow head). Seiya called her "bombón" (a cute way of saying "babe"). Mamoru called Serena by name instead of a pet name, and Usagi called him "mi Darien" (my Darien).

Sailor Moon's trademark "I will punish you" speech was translated into two different forms. The first one, which was used for almost the entire series, was, "Soy una Sailor Scout que lucha por el amor y la justicia, soy Sailor Moon! Y te castigaré en el nombre de la Luna!" (I am a Sailor Scout who fights for love and justice, I am Sailor Moon! And I will punish you in the name of the Moon!). The second version, which appeared only in a few of the first episodes, was, "Defiendo el amor y la justicia, soy una Sailor Scout con traje de marinero, soy Sailor Moon! Y te voy a castigar en el nombre de la Luna!" (Defending love and justice, I am a sailor-suited Sailor Scout, I am Sailor Moon! And I will punish you in the name of the Moon!).

In the third season, the Outer Senshi's speech was, "¡Formo parte de una nueva era, soy Sailor Uranus y entraré en acción! ¡Lo mismo digo yo, soy Sailor Neptune y entraré en acción!" (I am part of a new era, I am Sailor Uranus and I will enter the battle! I also say the same, I am Sailor Neptune and I am going to enter the battle!). Their fifth season speech was, "Mi planeta protector es Urano, el planeta del viento, soy la Sailor del aire, Sailor Uranus. Mi planeta protector es Neptuno, el planeta de las profundidades marinas, soy la Sailor del agua, Sailor Neptune. Mi planeta protector es Plutón, el planeta del tiempo, soy la Sailor del cambio, Sailor Plut. Las tres Sailor Scouts que protegen el sistema solar han venido a luchar" (My planet protector is Uranus, the planet of wind, I am the Sailor of the air, Sailor Uranus. My planet protector is Neptune, the planet of the deep sea, I am the Sailor of water, Sailor Neptune. My planet protector is Pluto, the planet of time, I am the Sailor of change, Sailor Plut. The three Sailor Scouts who protect the Solar System, have come to fight!). Sailor Saturn's speech was, "Mi planeta protector es Saturno, el planeta del silencio, soy la Sailor del nacimiento y de la destrucción, Sailor Saturn" (My planet protector is Saturn, the planet of silence, I am the Sailor of birth and destruction, Sailor Saturn).

The "dream, dream" phrase recited by members of the Dead Moon Circus was, "Los sueños se pueden convertir en pesadillas, lo que menos quiere un niño es convertirse en adulto" (Dreams can turn into nightmares, the last thing a child wants is to become an adult).

The Sailor Starlights' individual speech was, "Soy una estrella fugaz que lucha contra la oscuridad, ¡Sailor Star _______, ha llegado!" (I am a shooting star that fights against the darkness, Sailor Star _______, has arrived!). Their group speech was, "Pasamos por la oscuridad de la noche. Y también por la atmósfera de este planeta. Somos tres estrellas fugaces, ¡Sailor Star Fighter! ¡Sailor Star Maker! ¡Sailor Star Healer! ¡Las Sailor Starlights, han llegado! ¡Haw!" (We pass through the darkness of the night. And also too through the atmosphere of this planet. We are three shooting stars, Sailor Star Fighter! Sailor Star Maker! Sailor Star Healer! The Sailor Starlights, we have arrived! Haw!).

When the Spectre Sisters were turned into humans, they cried out, "¡Transformación!" (Transformation!). When Moon Healing Escalation was used on most of the Youma they said, "¡Me transformo!" (I'm transforming!). When Moon Spiral Heart Attack and Rainbow Moon Heartache were used, some Daimons cried out, "¡Hermoso!" (Beautiful!) or "¡Encantador!" (Lovely!). When Moon Gorgeous Meditation was used, the Lemures cried out, "¡Fin de la función!" (Show's Over!). When healed with Starlight Honeymoon Therapy Kiss or Silver Moon Crystal Power Kiss, the Phage cried out, "¡Hermoso!" (Beautiful!).

Crystal[edit]

On March 4, 2018, the vice president of Azteca 7 announced that Sailor Moon Crystal would air on that channel the same year. Cristina Hernández was the director of the dub, with Brenda Nava working on the adaptation. Patricia Acevedo and Rossy Aguirre reprised their roles as Sailor Moon and Sailor Mercury, respectively.

All three seasons were dubbed and were aired on Azteca 7 on Saturdays at 12:00 pm. The episodes were unedited and the theme songs were not dubbed, instead shown subtitled in Spanish. The translators wanted to use the names and terms originally provided by DiC, but after several discussions between the dubbing directors and Naoko Takeuchi herself, they agreed to use the original Japanese names for this dub. Despite this, there were still instances in several episodes in which a character was called by their DiC name.

The first four episodes were shown as a single movie across Cinemax theatres in Mexico starting October 27, 2018.

Manga[edit]

After the anime became popular, the manga was also published in Mexico. It was translated from the English version released by Mixx and was published by Editorial Mundo VID, and only the Dream and Stars arcs were released. They were published in several issues, with each issue containing about 96 pages; half of the issue was for Sailor Moon (in blue pages), and the other half was for Magic Knight Rayearth (in pink pages). The manga was less popular than the anime or the anime film comic for the first and second seasons, which were also translated and released by Editorial Toukan.

The following tables include the names from the original publications. In 2015, Editorial Panini released the twelve volumes of the shinshouban edition of the manga, including Codename: Sailor V and the side stories.
