French is syllable-timed, for instance.

Haaa... <whisper> Subtitled Sailor Moon... If only we had that in France... The only bits of Sailor Moon I have in original version are MPG and AVI files I found on Internet and put on a CD-ROM. They contain the transfos and the attacks of all the senshi in all five series, plus nearly all the end of Sailor Moon Sailor Stars (including a 5min. video of the last battle of Sailor Moon against Galaxia, you know, the one when she is naked and has angel's wings). It's not bad, but not enough for me... My dream is to have the 200 episodes of Sailor Moon in original version. Do you know a place where I could get them? Christophe.
