What If Saban Dubbed Sailor Moon in the 90's Instead of DiC?

As everyone remembers way back in January of 2010 I talked about "Saban Moon" and how it wasn't associated with Saban at all. Instead,it was created by Toon Makers.

But since it was co-produced by Renaissance-Atlantic,an ally of Saban Entertainment,people wrongfully assumed that Saban was responsible for this version of Sailor Moon. Thus why it was called Saban Moon.

Anyway,back in the 90's Saban was could do no wrong,and they had a great relationship with Toei.

So what if,in the 90's,Toei decided to give the Sailor Moon dubbing rights to Saban instead of DiC? Would that dub be better? And what about Cloverway? Would they still play a roll,or do dubbing duties stay with Saban?

A 90's Saban Sailor Moon dub would be superior. Why? Because the Writing and Voice Acting would be way better,that's why. Also,Haim Saban and Shuki Levy would've create excellent music for the series. Plus,DiC Can't Handle Anime,Saban Can. This has been proven fact.

So? what about Voice Actors? Who would Voice who? I have no idea. But I'm very sure Saban would use Californian VA's (the ones that they always use for their anime dubs).

Plus,I believe Saban would either change names or keep them as is. Maybe do a bit of both. Change the names to what? Who knows? I'd be up to Saban. I doubt they'd keep the DiC or Cloverway names,though.

Also,the series would've aired on FOX Kids and/or Fox Family. Reruns would've aired on Disney's Jetix block.

Now,with all of this said,it's time for the billion dollar question: Would Saban dub the final season,Sailor Stars? Well the answer isn't very clear...for a few reasons:

1 - Sailor Stars is somewhat controversial.

2 - Toei may decide to pull the plug on the Sailor Moon dub before Sailor Stars,despite Saban doing a good job.

And 3 - There's a chance that Disney would've purchased Saban,before they even had a chance to dub Sailor Stars. So it would've been too late.

So,why did DiC get dubbing duties for Sailor Moon and not Saban? I have no idea. DiC either got to the bidding table first with a good deal or Saban wasn't interested or was preoccupied with something else.

Whatever the reason,Saban not acquiring the dubbing rights to Sailor Moon was a huge missed opportunity. But we can always dream...dream of what should have been.

Make no mistake,had Saban acquired the dubbing rights,we would've been treated to a really great Sailor Moon dub in the 90's. Let's face it,DiC did a bad job and Cloverway did even worse.

Soooooo,what are the Downsides to Saban dubbing Sailor Moon? Well,for starters,Saban will still be editing the Anime for General Audiences. And Haruka and Michiru would have to be just good friends,instead of lovers. Same with Zoisite and Kunzite. But on the bright side,Saban edits anime way better than DiC and Cloverway do. So there's that.

Also,since Saban would be handling the dub,Sailor Moon will be exclusive to Fox Kids,Fox/ABC Family,and later,Jetix. So it can't and won't be on Toonami. Which really sucks.

No time for the Good Aspects of a hypothetical Saban dub. Well like I stated earlier,Saban handles anime way better than DiC and Cloverway. There's a chance we could've had ZERO missing episodes for this dub. Plus,I think the 1st Season Finale would've remained un-spliced.

Another good apect besides the editing would be the Voices and Voice Acting. Trust me,If you watched any of Saban's 90's anime dubs,you'll instantly notice the quality of the Voice Acting is vastly superior to Optimum Productions. The scripts would be better too.

And finally,an original musical score done by Shuki Levy and Haim Saban. How great is that?

I think it's safe to say that Saban would've handled Sailor Moon way better than DiC and Cloverway. Shame it never happened,though we do have our imaginations.

Until next time,
Stay Gold,Space Cowboys!

Holy Tragedies! Adam West Goes To That Great Batcave In Sky!

Ladies and Gentlemen,I regret to inform you that...the Original TV Batman,has died.

The (oftentimes bias) Reaper has struck again,and Adam West was his latest victim. West died at age 88. Leukemia was the cause.

We all knew Adam as the first TV Batman,but after that,he went on to do other roles,most notably Voice Acting. He did VA roles for shows like Superfriends,Fairly OddParents,Batman:The Animated Series,Kim Possible,The Simpsons,Johnny Bravo,Soace Ghost:Coast to Coast,Spongebob Squarepants,and many others.

But despite all these,West will Always be remembered as The 1st TV Batman. The Adam West Batman show was my very first exposure to the Batman franchise,so I will always hold a special place in my heart and mind for that series.

Thank You Adam West,for All that you've done. We,the people,will miss you. And now,the Fans would like to speak.

The Fans: Thank You Adam (clap,clap...clap,clap,clap),Thank You Adam (clap,clap...clap,clap,clap),Thank You Adam (clap,clap...clap,clap,clap),Thank You Adam (clap,clap...clap,clap,clap),Thank You Adam (clap,clap...clap,clap,clap),Thank You Adam (clap,clap...clap,clap,clap),Thank You Adam (clap,clap...clap,clap,clap),Thank You Adam (clap,clap...clap,clap,clap),Thank You Adam (clap,clap...clap,clap,clap),Thank You Adam (clap,clap...clap,clap,clap),Thank You Adam (clap,clap...clap,clap,clap),Thank You Adam (clap,clap...clap,clap,clap).

God Speed,Old Chum!

RIP Adam West

6 Potential Candidates For The List

Here are a a bunch of canidates that I'm seriously considering to be on The List.

Hollywood (they have a long rapsheet to their name,I don't feel like listing)

The Mega Man [Fan] Community (for taking hypocrisy to a new level,among other things)

Disney President Gary Marsh (he has 3 strikes against him..and he only has 2 left)

Youtube (from cowering at the feet of currupt media orgs,to forcing ads upon the watcher. These guys are on thin ice)

Verizon (ever since they removed 'Heroes and Icons' from their line-up,they've become potential candidates for the list)

Capcom Japan (for bastardizing their old franchises,disrespecting mega man,ect.)

Well there you have it,6 potential candidates for The List!

If you're reading this Jason,I would like it if you would add to The List too. Tell me who you want on the list,and I'll put them on there.

So Long...For Now - The Rekka Dragon Starts His Journey of Self-Awareness and Finding Answers on Friendship.

Hey there, Toonsters.

  I thought I drop by and give a heads up on where I have been.  Usually, I am the optimistic, courageous animation crusader. But as of late, I wasn't think like myself lately. I am going through a lot of changes. Although it started on October 13, 2014, when Discovery killed off the Hub and created Discovery Family, and started to buy off friendship using MLP as a scapegoat for the sinister goals, it was watching shows from the Arrowverse, such as The Flash, that got me questioning friendship as a whole, knowing that it can be broken as well. Ever since I wrote that fan letter to Carlos Valdes and gotten no reply, indicating that I didn't get my answer, whether or not friendship is truly dead. And judging from that notion, to me at least, it probably is cause the whole world is dog-eat-dog, every man for himself, looking out for number one and they don't care about friendship. And because of that, I spurned the very people I trusted, especially one of my fellow moonies, who I helped with those scrapbooks, including one for Cristina Vee (which, to this day, didn't receive due to the staff from Anime Revolution rushing up the lines). I almost ended that friendship right here and there, but I patched things up with her. But, that is no excuse for what I did, all because no one, in the world of acting, wouldn't answer that very important question about friendship. Like Cisco once said, "Sometimes when things get broken, they can't be fixed." And that's what I am feeling right now.

So, after some consideration, and since Summer is just around the corner, I decided to take a break from social media for awhile. Because of this, along with other issues, such as death of more voice actors like Dick Gautier, opening more of my dark parts of my past such as bullies using Kamen Rider to torment me and everything in between, I want to take a break from everything, just to re-assess my life and better myself until I fully understand friendship better. I know you guys understand it better than me, but this is something I got take of myself.

Don't think of it as goodbye, this is more like see you later. Until I get back, my brother in arms, Stefan, will be in charge of things here in the ACF. I don't know how long until I get back, I just hope things turn out good for me. But, until then, stay frosty and Godspeed, my friends. And believe me, I am going to need a lot of luck. And as long as the spirits of my virtues are with me, I will never truly be alone.

(Whereabouts of a Smile - Pocketwatch Version plays)








"Friendships can be bought or broken. Either way, I must journey to better myself until I fully understand it altogether. As long as my virtues guide me, I won't feel so alone. God help us all."









So long...for now.

Let's Fail: Anime Jason vs. Discovery Family - Episode 2: Discovery Kids: The Network That Wasn't!


As I promised, here is episode 2 of my retrospective/rant on Discovery Family. Since this part is about Discovery Kids, this one is relatively short.

However, don't expect episode 3 to be out anytime soon. Since Summer is just around the corner (and some personal issues to sort out, including my dilemma over friendship), I am going to take a break from social media for awhile. I will explain everything on my next blog. Until then, stay frosty and enjoy the episode.
