Sailor Moon Video Games
Sailor Moon is a massive franchise, pervading all types of media. This also includes video games! Unfortunately, it is estimated that 90% of these games never have seen official releases outside of Japan. However, fans being amazing as we are, many of these have been translated over the years! I have played a good chunk of these myself, but am still working my way through the vast library of these titles. There are also tons of fan-made games for the franchise, many completely worth playing!
My current focus is the Super Moon Fighter series that was created by Sprite Team (a Japanese gaming company), for the X68000. There are several versions of Sailor Moon fighting games that this company has created, and through the power of the internet I have been able to experience NEARLY all of them. 💫
Sadly, the version of the game that sparked my interest, Super Moon Fighter DX, is the single version that appears to be missing from the internet. Any help in unearthing this version would be greatly appreciated. Below is the character select screen, and some additional sprites for reference. The specifics for this version include that Sailor Moon is now Eternal Sailor Moon, and has Luna as a side kick who can also attack. Also, Super S abilities were added in such as Venus Love and Beauty Shock, Mars Flame Sniper, Jupiter Oak Evolution, etc. It is also the only currently known version of the game to include Sailor Saturn, who is extremely powerful.
Super Moon Fighter aside, I would love for this to just be a general Sailor Moon Video Game Discussion Thread. Speak about whatever you like regarding that subject here! I'll start.
Of all the Sailor Moon video games out there, my favorite would have to be Sailor Moon Another Story. If you are unfamiliar, it's a turn-based battle style JRPG that was officially released on the Super Famicon (SNES) by a company called Angel in 1995. To date, it has never seen an official English translation. However, there have been two largely recognized translations done over the years.
The original fan translation of the game was done by Bishoujo Senshi Translations released in 1999. This translation heavily relies on knowledge of the fan-subtitled Sailor Moon anime, and fansub anime in general. Additionally, the creators had to do some major re-programming to get it to work properly. The translation is not perfect, but is still very well done and does not impede on enjoyment of the game. Some technique descriptions are inaccurate / funny. Example: The link technique that combines Sailor Mars, Sailor Jupiter, and Sailor Uranus is called Fire Thunder Shaking. The description for this attack is "An old man?"
Released 20 years after Bishoujo Senshi Translations' initial release, this is a complete English re-localization of the game. Featured are several fixes to issues and bugs in the original game. There is also a version of this that has some small changes to increase quality of life: that being, double EXP per battle and 1/2 enemy encounter rate as well as adding an attack enhancement item to a shop for Sailor Mercury's solo quest. (Because most people had no idea that her Shabon Spray attack is actually the most useful ability in the game).
Both versions of the game are available online. Google search the game title, plus "Fantasy Anime" and you'll find it.
Sailor Mercury - From Useless to OP
Back when all we had was the original translation, and very limited resources, those of us who were able to play it had absolutely NO idea that Sailor Mercury's ability, Shabon Spray, didn't do direct damage. It is even listed in the fan guide as simply causing minor damage. It wasn't until playing this game as an adult, and becoming obsessed with the fact that her 2 CP cost attack did so much less than everyone else's, and also seemed to have a strange damage limit to it (the numbers never seeming to go higher than 20), for it to just be straight damage. I tested it out, figured out that the numbers popping up are showing exactly how much you are reducing the enemies attack by , and then promptly ran to the internet to find that someone else had discovered the same thing a few years prior. LOL! But still! That was an exciting moment for me, and to this day I do not think it is very well known.
Because of this ability, and the fact that Sailor Mercury has one of the highest Defense Stats in the game, Sailor Mercury has successfully taken the spot as Most Useful Character in Sailor Moon Another Story. Feel free to disagree below.
I've watched plenty of anime, but I've been looking around, and need some help finding some good anime with comedy and action...anyone got some ideas? or perhaps can help me out?
I've been looking on some websites, and found some decent stuff, but nothing i'm interested in...like I said, perhaps you guys could help! Thanks!
Is Saya Kisaragi from the anime Blood-C actually just a Filipina aswang from pre-Spanish colonial era Philippines?
In the anime Blood-C, Saya Kisaragi's origins are shrouded in mystery. She isn't even Japanese. And her real name is just Saya. Her last name Kisaragi is fake. In all honesty, we don't even know if her real name is Saya at all. Her real name would have probably been native female Filipino Tagalog such as Luwalhati, Diwa, etc. Her real last name on the other hand, would have been native Filipino Tagalog such as Atabay, Dimasupil, Una, etc.
Despite her youthful physical appearance, she is actually much older. A lot of people said that she is an Elder Bairn but there are also ones that say that she is something else. As for her looking like a Japanese teenage human girl, this probably isn't even her real form. Her real form is probably that of tanned skinned Filipino teenage girl with large eyes and not that of a pale-skinned slanted eyed Japanese teenage girl.
Her real form could have probably been like this long-black-haired tanned-skinned Filipina girl. She probably could have looked like Mayari from the webtoon Mayari. The webtoon Mayari is created by Azilim. Seriously, search up Mayari.
I am not saying that the webtoon is connected to the Blood-C universe. I am just saying that Saya Kisaragi's real physical appearance could have been like that of Mayari.
She could have probably used a supernatural power that changed her physical appearance from that of a Filipina teenage girl into that of a Japanese teenage girl. Keep in mind that aswangs have the supernatural power to change from one human form into another different human form. Seriously, those are one of the aswang's supernatural powers.
Another thing that sets her apart from Elder Bairns is that she is a monster but looks like a human. She's probably not even an Elder Bairn but something else.
So again, is there a possibility that Saya Kisaragi is actually just a Filipina aswang from Pre-Spanish colonial era Philippines?
By the way, search up aswangs so you can understand what I am saying.
So I didn't stumble upon any forum mentioning about this amazing anime "No Game No Life". Well come on guys please give me some revuews about this anime, because personally I love it. I mean the plot and the characters are just so fitting !! The intelligence level of this anime alone can defeat that of Isaac Newton's(just kidding, maybe). The use of psychology and some of the truth of life just hits so hard from this anime. Tell me about your opinions !
I don't know if you know about this horror anime but can you tell me its name?
This horror anime is about a scary demonic sorceress teenage girl. In the anime series, it's not explained why she is absolutely passionate and happy about her job.
Now this is where it gets interesting, her job is basically brutally attacking evil people. She doesn't attack evil people on her own will because she only does these grim jobs at the request of innocent people. Speaking of innocent people, she doesn't attack evil people at the request of other evil people. She only accepts requests from truly innocent people. More than that, no one can ever request her to attack innocent people.
In her grim job, she had many ways of brutally attacking evil people. This includes:
Brutally killing one or more evil people.
Laying a curse that brutally torments an evil family/group for their whole lives. Sometimes, the curse brutally kills one of them.
Giving an evil person torment and extremely bad misfortunes for the rest of his/her life.
Taking one or more evil people to supernatural realms where they will be brutally killed, tortured to death, or tortured for all of eternity.
Torturing one or more evil people to death.
It's been shown in one anime video clip that the types of evil people that the demonic girl attacks included brutal government dictators, ruthless clan warlords, terrorists, gangsters, perverted stalkers, and high school bullies.
As for the innocent people that requested her to attack evil people, it's also not good for them because they will eventually pay heavily for requesting the sorceress girl to do her grim job. The ways in which they have to pay is by them dying, dying brutally, being tortured to death, or having to do something very difficult in order for the sorceress girl to grant their requests then they will brutally die or be tortured to death after the sorceress girl completed their requests.
About the demonic teenage girl
The sorceress girl is very powerful as she is basically omnipotent. She is also immortal because she doesn't age and her life doesn't expire. She lives forever. She rules multiple supernatural dark realms. She has legions and armies of demons and monsters. She is basically the most powerful entity in the entire anime according to the anime video clip.
It seems like she has 14 demonic servants that are important in the anime according to the anime video clip. Her legions and armies of demons and monsters act in very inhuman otherworldly freakish ways. They never act like humans or show human emotions. They are very bizarre. For example, some of her demon servants don't act like humans or show human feelings and instead, are mostly quiet while showing weird faces and the only noise they make are creepy inhuman screams.
The sorceress teenage girl is mysterious, quiet, and a loner. She rarely speaks but if she does, she talks in a calm voice. Sometimes, her facial expression is blank and other times, she smiles calmly and modestly.
She is still mysterious in that nothing is known about her past or her background. It's not even known if she is originally human or something else but it seems that her origin lies in Japan and she speaks fluent Japanese. She doesn't go to school and just roams the whole world. She doesn't have a human family.
During normal casual times, she is calm. Such as when she's just calmly talking to a random innocent person on the streets in the morning. But during times where she is doing her grim job of brutalizing evil people, she is creepy and monstrous but there are also times where she is scarily quiet. She is very passionate and happy about her grim job of attacking evil people and feels no sadness or horror from it. Despite all of this, she never kills or hurts innocent people except when they request her to attack evil people. She also only attacks evil people when innocent people request her to do so.
She has long straight black hair. Her hairstyle is basically the classic hime-cut that is often featured in many animes except that her bangs aren't straight cut but are a bit pointy downwards. Also, the bottom ends of her long hair are pointy downwards. She looks like a 15 year old girl. She has fairly pale skin. She is not fat or thin because she looks fairly physically fit. Her eyes are not red, blue, violet, etc. but are black.
During normal casual times, she wears some kind of old-fashioned Western clothes. The clothes have a skirt that goes below her knees. She does not wear a Japanese school uniform.
During scenes where she is doing her grim job of attacking evil people, she wears completely weird clothes that aren't even traditional clothes(like a kimono or a medieval European dress) or even old-fashioned clothes but just something straight up weird and otherworldly.
The only sources where I got all of this information from are the anime video clip and two full episodes of the anime.
During my vacation in Japan, I watched the two episodes on a Japanese channel that doesn't seem to be popular. During my vacation, I visited an important person I needed to meet. I visited him for two days. It was in those two days when I discovered this anime that I am talking about. I was watching the two episodes on his television. Unfortunately, I haven't completely watched the whole episodes so I don't even know the name of the anime, the sorceress girl, or even the names of the two episodes.
The first episode that I watched involves an African lawyer adult guy doing extremely difficult things such as cutting off both of his feet as some kind of ritual to the demonic girl so that she will brutally attack a violent thuggish African rebel group who kidnapped the African lawyer adult guy's daughter and held the African daughter captive. The African lawyer completed the ritual. After completing the ritual, what happened is that the demonic girl supernaturally teleported the entire African rebel group to some supernatural realm where she and her demonic army brutally tortured all of the African rebel group members to death. In one of the following days, the African lawyer was brutally killed by the sorceress girl in front of his daughter which made his daughter cry.
The second episode I watched mostly takes place in a city and this involves a teenage girl requesting the sorceress girl to exact vengeance against an abusive powerful rich political upper class family who is constantly oppressing the teenage girl's middle class family. One member of the middle class family who was a girl was raped by one of the members of the upper class family. Another member of the middle class family who was a boy was killed by another member of the upper class family. The teenage girl requested the demonic girl for help. What happened afterwards is that the demonic girl placed a curse on the upper class family that gave them extreme misfortunes and extreme sufferings and this curse tormented them for the rest of their whole lives. Two of the upper class family's members even brutally died.
As for the short anime video clip that I just watched, I just watched it on some website that isn't even popular. Unfortunately, the person who posted the video clip on the website didn't even give the name of the anime. It's kinda like those Youtube videos where they show interesting shows or movies but do not give their title. Also, I can't find the website anymore so it was probably taken down and I don't know why.
You're probably asking how I found this website. Well after I watched the horror anime's two episodes, I got interested in the anime so I started browsing about this anime on the Internet. Since I don't really know the title of the horror anime, I just typed whatever I know about the horror anime and that's how it took me to the website. Unfortunately, the person who posted the video on the website didn't even put the title of the anime. Another thing that sucks is that there is also nothing in the video clip that reveals the name of the sorceress girl. Nothing! Absolutely nothing.
I don't really know much about this horror anime except for the fact that it started to be made this year 2022. I don't know if it was based on a manga or if it started as an anime.
The anime is truly scary except for the fact that evil people have it far worse. What makes it charming is that it isn't just scary during the scenes where the demonic sorceress girl attacks evil people but the entire episodes. Basically, there is always a tension and thrill involving the mystery of the demonic girl and there is always drama in the lives of the innocent people that requested the demonic girl's grim help. This anime is indeed a true horror anime about demons and monsters but it's not just that because it seems like it also touches on serious mature real-life human issues such as revenge, terrorism, bullying, corruption, tyranny, greed, crime, racism, oppression, murder, rape, economic discrimination, social discrimination, etc.
Another thing that I like about this anime is that it is multicultural in that it isn't just Japan where the anime takes place but also in other countries. Also, one unique thing about this anime is that the characters originating from other cultures and nations speak their own languages and not just Japanese while in most animes, all of the characters can only speak Japanese. For example, the first episode I watched featured the African characters speaking local African languages instead of Japanese. I think this is the first time that the Japanese creators hired diverse voice actors. Overall, I like this diversity.
So does anybody know the name of this horror anime?
