Sailor Moon Abridged: HILARIOUS!!!

Years ago (1995, if I recall correctly), I saw a single episode of Sailor Moon. I normally have a pretty good memory, but even I can't remember much about the episode that I did see. I remember the main character Serena/Usagi and Luna, the talking cat. That's pretty much it. Although now that I think about it, I do remember how little sense it made. Now it could be argued that anime in general can be really screwed up, but this was also the time when anime hadn't really hit it big in America so dubbing companies took far more liberties with this and mucked things up more than usual.

Flash forward to 2009. Anime is huge just about everywhere and numerous "Abridged" series are pretty much all over the internet. I thought I could get along just fine with Dragon Ball Z Abridged and Yu Yu Hakusho Abridged, but after watching the very first episode of Sailor Moon Abridged, I see that I've really been missing out.

Like many other Abridged series, SMA is a gag dub, poking fun at the English dub and the anime itself. This series easily rates up there with TeamFourStar's aforementioned DBZA series so mass props and kudos to the crew behind SMA for providing me with an unfathomable amount of laughs over the last few days. Despite not being a fan of the actual SM series, I still find SMA a hoot and I recommend it to anyone that likes to laugh. You can check out episodes on YouTube, or go to the official SMA website.
