Sailor Moon Crystal, known in Japan as Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal (Japanese: 美少女戦士セーラームーン, Hepburn: Bishōjo Senshi Sērā Mūn Kurisutaru), is a 2014 original net animation adaptation of the shōjo manga series Sailor Moon written and illustrated by Naoko Takeuchi, produced in commemoration of the original series' 20th anniversary. Produced by Toei Animation and directed by Munehisa Sakai (Seasons 1 and 2) and Chiaki Kon (Season 3), the series was streamed worldwide on Niconico from July 5, 2014, to July 18, 2015. Season 1 and 2's episodes were released twice a month. Instead of remaking the 1990s anime series preceding it, Toei Animation produced Crystal as a reboot of Sailor Moon and as a more faithful adaptation of the original manga by omitting much of the original material from the first series. The story focuses on Usagi Tsukino, who is a young girl that obtains the power to become the titular character. Other Sailor Guardians join her in the search for Princess Serenity and the Silver Crystal.

Indonesian censorship[]

  • Any scenes involving romance or nudity were edited out.
  • Any scenes prominently showing bare legs were replaced with alternate shots.[1]
  • Any shots of Chibiusa using a toy gun on Usagi in episodes 14 and 15 were edited or removed.

Portuguese censorship[]


Season 3[]

  • In the anime, Haruka aka Sailor Uranus is a lesbian woman who in one episode flirted with Usagi and almost kissed her asking if her gender matters for romance, but was interrupted by the arrival of Mamoru. In the Portuguese version, the scene was shortened, it was only used the part of her approaching Usagi after she asked why Haruka doesn't talk to her, and in the Portuguese dub she made a mystery about why she walks away like that.
  • There was also censorship in the episode that addresses Haruka's gender identity, and there was censorship in the lesbian kiss episode that gave the protagonist Usagi.

Where to find it uncensored[]
