Sailor Moon in Greece

Sailor Moon in Greece refers to the Greek language dub of the Sailor Moon anime which aired in Greece beginning in 1995. Greece was one of the first countries in the world to air a foreign-language dub of the anime on television.

The anime first aired on the channel ANT1, and became very popular among young viewers and teenagers. Two episodes were broadcast every week, on Saturday and Sunday; though the hour changed twice it was always aired in the morning hours between 9 and 11 a.m. Each episode lasted for about twenty minutes, eliminating the eyecatches, but adding commercial breaks between scenes that faded in and out. The final episode was broadcast in 1998. After repeating the last three seasons, ANT1 aired Sailor Moon for the last time in early 2000. There were some changes and censorship, but overall the dub stayed very close to the original Japanese version.

In late 2002 the show was licensed again, this time for broadcast on Star Channel. The show was re-dubbed with a completely new cast of voice actors and aired at different hours. Star Channel broadcast one episode each day at 7:30 a.m. and sometimes at 8:30 a.m. This broadcast kept the episode run time to 20 minutes, and the script was more or less the same as the one used for the ANT1 dub. Since it was a completely new dub it drew more attention, but many fans criticized the fact that old mistakes were not fixed in the script, the quality of the voice acting, and the broadcast times. The second dub ended with episode 88 in late 2003.

After that, Star Channel started re-broadcasting the show from the beginning up to episode 86, though some episodes were replayed. The hours and dates of broadcast also changed several times during this period. This repeated many times, until episode 88 aired for the last time on Monday, June 20, 2006.

General Dub Issues[edit]

Fans praised the ANT1 Greek dub for its cast and dubbing direction, though since there were only a few voice actors many of the characters had similar voices, and the casting changed even within the same episode. Bunny was one of the few characters to have consistent voice direction. All of the villains had echo and pitch change effects applied to their voices, which could make them difficult to understand. Also, some of the alterations to the dialogue made a few conversations sound out of context: for example, in episode 78 Artemis claimed that Makoto had accompanied Minako to Ami's home instead of saying that Minako had separately visited both Makoto's and Ami's homes.

Also, due to a translation mistake, Sailor Mercury was named "Sailor Kronos" (the name for Sailor Saturn) for the first two seasons and a few episodes of Sailor Moon S. Even after the talk about the Messiah of Silence who was actually Sailor Saturn herself, there were a few occasions where Mercury was still called "Kronos."

Zoisite remained a male, but he and Kunzite were depicted as close friends. Fisheye became female, but the moment where "he" showed his chest was kept, and episode 140 remained uncensored. Zirconia became male. Artemis was female in the first episodes, but later was male. The Three Lights had male voices that turned into female voices after they transformed into the Sailor Starlights. Haruka and Michiru were depicted as close friends, similar to Zoisite and Kunzite.

The Star Channel dub had a larger cast than its predecessor, but the voice direction was considered to be poor by fans. The voice alterations for the villains were removed, though the translation and dialogue issues persisted.

Music, Openings, and Endings[edit]

The ANT1 dub kept the original opening but with a different logo, and the opening and ending theme songs were replaced by a translated version of "Moonlight Densetsu" called "Eimai ego i sailor moon" ("I Am Sailor Moon"). None of the other theme songs were ever translated or used. For the first season and the first few episodes of Sailor Moon R, the opening animation was the same as the original first version of the opening. The first and second versions of the original R season opening animation were used for the rest of the Greek-dubbed R season, and the early episodes of the S season used the third version of the original S season opening. All later episodes, however, used the second version of the R season opening.

The Star Channel dub kept the original openings and endings and did not make any changes, although from episode 10 until the end, the original song was replaced by an instrumental version.
