On the fan project front, Sailor SolarS, a fan sequel to the old Sailor Moon anime, has released its first episode in two parts. Sailor SolarS is a very good project, and one we ask any reader to check out.
The existence of Sailor SolarS serves as a counter to one of the arguments against using "Serena." Even though it is based on the original version of the anime, it uses the names from the English dub. For those who dislike the English dub, the names indicate that the story does not have to be altered because the names have been changed. For those that prefer the English dub, the names serve to ease viewers into a different continuity. "Serena" serves as bridge to unite Sailor Moon fans. That's why we want her.
