Sailor Moon in China refers to the Sailor Moon translations and merchandise released in mainland China, which included a Mandarin dub of the anime and simplified-Chinese translation of the manga. The Mandarin title is "Meishaonu Zhanshi" (美少女战士), a transcription of "Bishoujo Senshi" (美少女戦士).

Anime[edit]

Both the Cantonese dub from Hong Kong and the Mandarin dub from Taiwan were aired on television in mainland China, but the first two seasons of the anime were also dubbed into Mandarin by the Liaoning People's Performing Arts Theatre Group (辽宁人民艺术剧院) specifically for broadcast in that country. As in dubs done in several other countries, the Chinese dub changed Zoisite to be a woman. In addition, some of the voice actresses were changed between the first season and Sailor Moon R.

The opening theme of this dub was an instrumental version of the original opening theme, "Moonlight Densetsu."

When the translated manga was released in China, the translators did not use the same names as the characters had in the anime.

Musicals[edit]

In 2004, a Fan Kansha event was held in Shanghai for Shin Kaguya Shima Densetsu, at which the songs "Tsukiiro no Syndicate", "La Soldier", and "LINK" were performed.

The first overseas performance of one of the musicals happened in China, when there were five performances of Petite Étrangère in Shanghai in January 2015.
