Ah. It's interesting the way that different subtitlers handle certain names. Like, whoever did the first volume of Sailor Moon S wrote "Kaoriknight", but then after that, it was "Kaolinite". :-) One subtitler put "Fire Mantra" for Mars' attack, all the others use "Fire Mandala". I haven't seen the first two seasons, tho. So I had to get a summary of them. :-) The friend I'm borrowing the tapes from only has subbed for all of Series 3 and 5 and parts of 4. I tried to watch the dubbed, but couldn't - it was just too awful. :-) I don't know how they did it in France, but in America, they changed a *lot* of stuff. Like, Sailors Uranus and Neptune they made into sisters (or maybe cousins, relatives at any rate), and changed all the names into American names. Plus, the people they got to do the voices for the American version sound really annoying. :-)

Hee hee. I just finished the fourth series, haven't gotten to that, but I've heard about it. :-) I'll probably be getting my fifth series fix tomorrow. :-) -- Cenedl heb iaith, cenedl heb galon A nation without a language is a nation without a heart - Welsh proverb ICQ: 18656696 AIM Screen-Name: NikTaylor42
