Sailor Moon Swedish Logo

The Swedish Logo of the series as shown in the anime opening.

This article refers to the translations and merchandise of Sailor Moon that was distributed in Sweden. The anime covered the first two seasons of the anime, first airing in Sweden during February 1996 as part of the children's programming block Junior on TV4, which at first only aired up to episode 23 at the time, and did not return until the year 1999. Episode 88 first aired September 2001, and the dub was later sold to a different network where it had continuous reruns until July 2004. Only episodes 1-18 have been commercially released on VHS. The translation contained some sexual references which the original didn't have, the roster of the cast covers over the Sailor Moon logo, and a male voice said the episode name as the Japanese text for the titles remained intact, which caused fighting among the fans. The ending is a Swedish version of the first Japanese opening and ran creditless. Episodes 49, 54, and 68 & 89 have never been broadcast.[1]

Starting in 2002, the Swedish dub has also been broadcast in Finland on SubTV with Finnish subtitles.

Dubbing Errors

The Swedish dub of the anime had a lot of mistakes or untranslated parts, like these down below:

  • In episode 2, Tuxedo Mask calls Sailor Moon Annie for two times, but he doesn't know that they are the same person.
  • In episode 5, In the scene that Naru can't accompany Usagi to the pet shop because she has three more lessons left for the day(Strange since these two are on the same class).

  • In the introduction of episode 69, when Chibi-Usa thinks the story is boring, the dialogue Is the below:

Original:

Usagi: I'm trying to be a nice cousin

Chibi-Usa: You're not my cousin really

Swedish:

Usagi: This Is the best place In the whole book

Trivia

  • A long-lived fan rumor stated that Zoisite was changed to a woman in the dub due to the homophobic implications of having a homosexual villain. The dubbers countered this by claiming that because Zoisite's voice was so feminine in the original Japanese, they never knew he was a man in the first place. Olav F. Anderson translated English scripts of Sailor Moon into Swedish singlehandedly and later described their linguistic quality as atrocious.
  • During the scene at the church's graveyard in episode 26, the writing on one gravestone was changed to Swedish.
  • Episode 46 was called "Sailor Moon och Döden"(Sailor Moon and the Death)
