Looks like Kerochan no Miko has done some great work cleaning up this page, making paragraph breaks make more sense, etc. One note - I wrote that Usagi introduces her performing friends as "Ami, Rei, Mako, and Mina" because she actually DOES introduce them as "Ami, Rei, Mako, Mina." I found that notable, so I put it in quotes. --Dallbun 17:46, 31 March 2007 (MST)

Okay, so I just added the article. I'll be the first to propose that my summary requires a bit of summarizing... I went back over it for that purpose at the very beginning, but then I just decided to throw it all out here and post the thing. Also, I propose, as I did, providing links to the songs when they're listed. We do have that whole music section on the wiki. How do people like inserting when songs occur during the summary? I think that's a good idea as well. For formatting, I took my cue from the Sailor Moon S musical summary, but I don't know if that layout's going to recieve any revision in the future. Thoughts? --Dallbun 01:36, 15 August 2006 (MST)

Looking fine! That's one really long summary, yes. ^_^ While it would probably benefit from a bit of shortening I don't think that's a big priority. Mentioning when the songs appear seems like a good idea (they are musicals, after all). I'll add it for the S musical shortly. Other than that the S summary is basically done, unless someone else restructures it. I was going to add some notes about the Death Busters and how they differ in the musical from other versions... it's just that my day job keeps demanding my attention too. ^^; --Rosen 01:51, 15 August 2006 (MST)
It does look good; nice and detailed. A few things, though. I'd match up the song titles throughout the article, either making them all Japanese, or at least adding the English translations to the list of songs. Also, I think I remember the Three Lights being women disguised as men in civilian form, like the manga, but you use male pronouns for them. I could be wrong, though, I haven't seen this musical, and I saw both Eien Densetsu and Starlights raw. Michie 13:08, 15 August 2006 (MST)
It's never established, at least in this musical (and I don't THINK it is in Eien Densetsu). But since these Starlights seem anime-inspired to me... they do the snapping silhouette introduction when they appear, for instance... I decided to refer to them as male when they're not transformed. It just so happened that I never ended up using pronouns on them when they WERE transformed. If we want, I can just edit the summary so that I never refer to the Three Lights by gendered pronouns, either - that might be the best way of doing it.--Dallbun 17:46, 31 March 2007 (MST)

And, length cutting-down aside, a wee bit of basic proofreading would be good. Yeah. --Dallbun 01:41, 15 August 2006 (MST)

It's looking pretty good. Link to the songs, certainly, although use the Japanese names rather than translations. We don't have a real policy to it, but right now I'm only linking to vocal tracks and not instrumentals. dooky 01:58, 15 August 2006 (MST)
Agree; the song titles should be given as they are under "Musical Numbers". (Speaking of which, 'Overture' is featured as a track on the soundtrack CD but is it a vocal number?) --Rosen 02:07, 15 August 2006 (MST)
It's not vocal. Remove it from the list of musical numbers?--Dallbun 08:46, 15 August 2006 (MST)
If what we want to have under that header is the numbers that were sung onstage, then I think so -- especially if there are going to be separate articles on the soundtrack CDs later on. --Rosen 13:15, 15 August 2006 (MST)
Yeah, the CDs will all have their own articles (we have some up already). So I guess the best policy is to leave out any instrumentals. dooky 13:55, 15 August 2006 (MST)
Counterpoint that I just thought of: like all the other songs, the Overture gets a little bar at the bottom of the screen displaying the name of the song (in this case, "Overture") when it begins. Given that, I'd argue that it should stay where it is on the song list.--Dallbun 17:46, 31 March 2007 (MST)

So much text and not a single photo. We probably want at least two or three.--WikiSysop 00:51, 18 August 2006 (MST)

Anime Death[edit]

Mamoru and Saturn died in the anime didn't they? Their star seeds were removed unless I imagined it. o.o They're effectively dead without a sailor crystal. Yes? Or thats been my understanding. Cartwheelingfiesta 22:22, 23 April 2011 (MST)

They were as dead as you can get in the anime. Changed back. Kerochan no Miko 22:23, 23 April 2011 (MST)
No, they weren't killed in the Nehellenia arc, just trapped in the mirrors... Silver 22:29, 23 April 2011 (MST)
I don't think that part of the trivia refers to Nehellenia, since it says Galaxia's attack. Galaxia didn't appear properly until 173, besides Sailorsimon's note said "they were never killed in the anime". Cartwheelingfiesta 22:31, 23 April 2011 (MST)
I mean The Queen Nehellenia Arc of the anime. That part of the musical is similar to episodes 170 and 171, only that the Senshi are killed in the musical, not trapped in mirrors like in the anime. Silver 22:36, 23 April 2011 (MST)
Ah, that makes sense. The way that note was phrased, however, is a little weird and somewhat pointless (since events there diverged from the anime anyway) so I took that part out. Kerochan no Miko 22:39, 23 April 2011 (MST)
Hm, Eien Densetsu also had elements of the Nehellenia arc, I'll add that as a note there too. Cartwheelingfiesta 22:44, 23 April 2011 (MST)
Yes, I was also too sleepy to get it at first. ^^;Silver 22:49, 23 April 2011 (MST)
Yeah, I got confused too XP it was talking about Galaxia and my mind went poof because Galaxia wasn't really in those episodes... bleehh i'm too tired Cartwheelingfiesta 22:53, 23 April 2011 (MST)

Frog Hair[edit]

Its still worded poorly. She has found in japanese the "hair of a frog". Its wrong to say, "how she found it wasn't explained". She picks it off the shoe. It should say something about how she recognizes it as frog hair is unknown. Besides its probably a minor joke to begin with - _ -. Cartwheelingfiesta 00:09, 21 June 2011 (MST)

It's just a trivia note. If you can come up with a better wording, feel free, but there's no reason to just summarily remove it. Kerochan no Miko 00:13, 21 June 2011 (MST)
