Sailor Moon in France refers to the Sailor Moon translations and merchandise released in France.


Translation and Channels

France was one of the first foreign countries to screen the Sailor Moon anime, which premiered in the country on Christmas 1993 and aired until August 1997 on TF1's now defunct children's programming block Club Dorothée. Later reruns were aired on AB1, AB Cartoons, Mangas, RTL9, Club RTL, TMC, and Fox Kids. Like the original North American distributors, the French did not originally get the rights to Stars, and ended the series at SuperS. The French dub was produced in the SOFI studios.

There have been three VHS releases in France. The first was produced by MangaLand in 1995. The first 64 episodes were released on VHS by Mangas over sixteen tapes, each containing four episodes. The last tape, covering episodes 61 to 64 was released on January 1, 2001. The last seventeen episodes of the SuperS season were not initially broadcast on TV, but were released on VHS and later on DVD. This release started at episode 149 and used images of Sailor Uranus, Sailor Neptune, and the Moonlight Knight.

The success of the series on TV prompted the producers to release the Sailor Moon R movie in the country as well, dubbed as Sailor Moon, Le Film: La Fleur Maléfique (Sailor Moon, the Film: The Evil Flower). It was first shown in theaters on May 15, 1996, but was considered a commercial failure, with only 17,000 tickets sold in Paris. The movie was shown on TV in the same month, followed by a VHS release in April 1997.

In September 2013, Kazé France started releasing the entire Sailor Moon anime on DVD box sets, containing all episodes in Japanese and French, with new French subtitles. The previously unreleased fifth season, the Sailor Moon S movie, and the Sailor Moon SuperS movie have also been released on DVD, dubbed with a mostly new cast. This dub was produced in the Time-Line Factory studios.

Censorship and Changes

  • The original opening and ending theme songs were replaced with a new song called "Sailor Moon," sung by Bernard Minet. Certain episodes from SuperS used the third opening from Sailor Moon S and featured footage originally used along with "Tuxedo Mirage" as the ending theme, although it was played with "Otome no Policy."
  • Haruka and Michiru's relationship was explained away by saying that Haruka was a man in civilian form, and Michiru was his girlfriend.
  • Fisheye was changed to be female, but the moment where "he" showed his chest was kept.
  • Artemis was changed to be female in some episodes, but later other characters referred to him as "he." Luna remained female, however.
  • A few cultural references were removed and some scenes showing Japanese writing were cut.
  • In several occasions during the third season, Rei's nightmare about the upcoming Silence was cut. It was entirely removed from the beginning of episode 90, leaving only the brief flashbacks she had later on. In episode 119, her nightmare was again cut from the beginning of the episode. Most of the scenes in which characters' Pure Heart Crystals were stolen were shortened.
  • The opening preview and title card sequence were cut from the beginning of each episode, and the French title of the episode would instead be shown in the very first scene. The only exception was in episode 86, in which the opening preview of the episode was shown.

In Kazé's uncut DVD release, all visual changes made to the show by AB were removed and the original theme and insert songs were used.

Character Names

The French dub changed some characters' names without explanation during the show: for example, An was first called "Annette" in episode 47 but was then called "Anne" in episode 59, and Naru and Umino changed from "Nanou" and "Marc" to "Nina" and "Joël," respectively, in episode 131. The villains in the Stars season and the Sailor Moon SuperS movie were the only ones who did not receive localized names.

Kaze France began releasing the show on DVD and Blu-ray, starting in July 2016.

The manga was first published in France by a company called Glénat. It was released from 1995-1999 in paperback book editions, most of which had the same covers as the Japanese editions. The back of each book had no summary and simply featured art from one of the artbooks. Each of the covers was extra-long and folded over, to create cover flaps which also had art from the artbooks. The front cover flap gave a summary of the volume, and the back listed books previous to that one in the series. The logo used was the one from the artbooks, minus "Pretty Soldier" in Japanese, and each volume was given its own title. Three of the French manga covers were printed with mixed-up covers: volume one had the cover for volume two, volume two had the cover for volume six, and volume six had the cover for volume one.

Most of the dialogue in the French editions was accurate, and there were very few alterations of Japanese elements. The only major change in this regard was that Rei Hino became Catholic and her chant was changed to "Vade retro, satanas!" ("Go back, demon!", a Latin exorcism). Her school's name was also changed to the "Saint Anne Academy for Girls."

The bulk of the main characters had the same or similar names as the Japanese version. However, the attacks and transformations were not given exact translations, and some were never called the same thing twice. The villains' names were also very different, and many had their genders changed: Kaolinite became "Elvira," Zirconia became a man, the Amazon Trio were all-female (and Hawk's Eye was named "Oak"), and the Amazoness Quartet were never given names.

In addition, there were some mistakes such as referring to the previously named "Rubis" as "Zoisite" in the short story "Casablanca Memory." A few other characters were given different names for no apparent reason: Sailor Mercury became "Sailor Mercure" by the third book and Séverine was once called "Setusna."

There is a common misconception among fans that Haruka Tenou became a man for the French manga, but this was not the case. She was referred to as "he" at first, before anyone knew she was female. After her identity was discovered, she was always referred to as "she," and her feminine figure was undeniable even outside of sailor uniform. The relationship between Haruka and Michiru remained vague; when they first appeared and Haruka was thought to be male, they were referred to as boyfriend and girlfriend, but later they were called "best friends."

Glénat also published the three original volumes of Codename: Sailor V. In their translations, the names of the enemies were either changed or poorly romanized: Fluorite and Danburite became "Flolight" and "Danbright," and Kunzite was called "Qunsight" instead of the usual "Quartz." Ace's name was spelled as "As," the French spelling of the name of the card.

The first artbook was also licensed by Glénat and was released in a hardcover format with the liner notes translated.

The shinsoban edition of the manga, including Sailor V, was released in France by Pika Edition beginning in July 2012. Their translation was closer to the original than Glénat's, and kept all the original names, although some accents were added to the names to help younger readers with the pronunciation (for example, "Tomoe" was written as "Tomoé"). "Daimon" was spelled "Daemon," and some English words such as "Queen" were unchanged. The names of the attacks were not translated, though Tuxedo La Smoking Bomber became "Tuxedo Smoking Bomber." The two pages at the end of the second volume where the early concept art was shown were left entirely untranslated. In the Sailor V manga, the villains in the "Pet" chapters had their names changed to French versions of their original Japanese onomatopoeia names, and became "Miaw Miaw," "Waf Waf," and "Buzz Buzz."

  • The French dub has also been shown in Monaco and Canada.
  • The first SNES video game was officially translated into French and released in France by Bandai S. A. in 1994. It was the only known official international release of any Sailor Moon video game.
  • Haruka's name in the French manga was "Frédéric," which is a name spelling used only for men ("Frédérique" is the feminine spelling). This was a possible reason why many fans believed that her gender had been changed in the manga.
  • Minako, though she was renamed "Mathilda" in the French dub, was sometimes called "Amélie Morin." This was the name of the voice actress who provided her voice.
  • Frédérique called Bunny "Face de Lune" (Moon Face).
  • Viluy was never given a name in the French dub, and she had two voice actresses: one, Agnès Gribe, for her Viluy form, and another, Amélie Morin, for her Yui Bidoh form.
  • François Leccia, an actor who played a number of roles in the French dub, died in 2009.
