Sailor Moon Episode 2 Sub/Dub Comparison Placeholder (Undubbed)

SMEP2SCREEN1

Plot: Fortune tellers are the latest craze in the city. Jadeite has taken this opportunity to collect more human energy for Queen Beryl by using another of his minions, Balm, to pose as a fortune teller and control the people who see her for readings. Umino goes to her for a reading to help guide him with his crush on Usagi, but he, as well as many other students from their school, gets caught up in Balm’s spell. Can Sailor Moon defeat Balm and snap her friends out of her spell?

This entry is simply for completion purposes. DiC never dubbed this episode. Why? Well, according to some sources, it could be because of three factors.

  1. Umino flips up his teacher’s skirt and shows her panties.
  2. Umino and other boys vandalize the school by breaking windows with rocks.
  3. The fortune telling theme of the episode might’ve been deemed too controversial?

Well, every excuse I can think of really holds no water to me. The skirt scene and the window scene could’ve easily been edited out if they were problems. DiC has already shown that they’re not shy when it comes to putting the scissors to anime, so it’s not a valid excuse.

As for the fortune telling thing, there’s really nothing religious about it. They make no religious references or anything. So, I honestly don’t know why this episode wasn’t dubbed. Only logical reason that I can think of is that DiC wanted to lose some filler episodes to bring on the other Sailor Scouts faster.

I have nothing really of note about this episode either. It’s rather forgettable.

Next time, a late night romance show on the radio has tons of women and girls clamoring for love. But when people start succumbing to a weird sleeping illness, it seems that Jadeite is behind both it and the radio show.
