I'd like this to be the "gateway" article, featuring a short history of the franchise as well as short summaries of the different incarnations. Dooky 00:49, 29 May 2006 (MST)

We should probably link to the "around the world" Sailor Moon category here, as I don't think there are many ways to get to those right now.--WikiSysop 01:00, 16 August 2006 (MST)

Actually there is another version: the "creepy mascot version" (of both the anime & PGSM) if you like. But I wonder if anyone is knowledgeable (& interested) enough to write articles about it. lol Tho I can point to a Japanese source if anyone wants it. 210 22:47, 28 August 2006 (MST)

Was there ever actually a kigurumi "series", or was it just isolated shows? Kerochan no Miko 22:48, 28 August 2006 (MST)
I guess it's sthg like the musicals, but I'm no expert about it.
Ah, and the 5 PGSM Senshi actresses have done VO for the PGSM kigurumi shows. lol 210 22:56, 28 August 2006 (MST)
The anime seiyuu also did kigurumi voiceovers (and Doi speculates that Aya Hisakawa may have recorded a special version of 'Koibito ni hanarenai kedo' for them). I've seen no info on whether or not there was a particular cast doing these shows, but there seems to have been one show per year performed at different venues much like the myu, so I guess that'd be the case. Note that several of these shows did include original characters (Doi mentions an alien queen called Bodiconian, a cellphone daimon, Miyago the cat daimon, and singing aliens from the planet Aidoru (Idol?)). They're not canon - at least I hope not - and the chances of getting any additional info on them must be quite slim, but maybe one shouldn't forget about them either. --Rosen 01:40, 29 August 2006 (MST)
Ok, I've added it for the PGSM page. If any kigurumi fan writes an article about it, I'll turn it into a link. 210 06:43, 29 August 2006 (MST)
For consistency purpose, it's now got an official name & a currently empty link in the PGSM page. There're a couple of Japanese sites (some w/ good photos) for it, but their full addr. can't be shown on my screen (won't explain the techies), so I can only tell how to get there if anyone wants. 210 04:03, 16 September 2006 (MST)
Now I've linked the sites' addresses here. --210 21:33, 12 May 2007 (MST)
On a marginally less creepy note... what about the audio dramas? These are very noteworthy indeed, but I've only seen a handful of translations (all from the first one, in which the Sesnhi audition to become voice actors and get into a bizarre wordgame battle with Zoisite. There was also a quiz about the series which Umino won easily, and some strange diary entries in which Mamoru complains about the price of roses and considers switching to fake ones). I'd love it if we could get some summaries up, but we'd the help of someone who has them, can speak Japanese and is willing to write a lengthy English summary. dooky 00:16, 29 August 2006 (MST)
There're also the PGSM radio dramas, tho they've already been linked in the PGSM page ("DJ Moon") & the Sailor Moon Music page ("DJ Moon Album" 1-3, etc. in the PGSM section). But I also wonder if those yet-nonexistent linked pages will ever be filled due to the similar reasons mentioned by dooky. 210 00:44, 29 August 2006 (MST)

This would be properly described as not a "series", but a "franchise". -- DENelson83 00:28, 29 August 2006 (MST)

The musicals could also be understood as a "franchise", but are nonetheless alternate continuities. 210 00:48, 29 August 2006 (MST)
To me series is appropriate for the title of this page because it's a listing of the various Sailor Moon series.--WikiSysop 03:31, 29 August 2006 (MST)

To Dooky regarding the comment starting with "On a margnally less creepy note..." there's a translation available for the first sound drama, if anyone's interested. Although, it's probably plargiarism if we copied and pasted the summary and I'm not sure if the webmaster is still contactable or not. Btw, I listened to the sound drama while refering to the above summary.. and it's super funny at some parts! I couldn't stop laughing! --Secretss 21:42, 12 May 2007 (MST)
