Sailor Moon in Sweden refers to the translations and merchandise 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, 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 have never been broadcast.[1]

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

Trivia

  • A longlived fan rumour 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)
  • Epiosde 19 has no Swedish title.
