Like its predecessor, the new Sailor Moon anime is bound to have a stunning new soundtrack. We've heard the opening theme, and here's hoping there are varied image songs and battle songs. Until July comes, here's a countdown of the(my) top 10 SM songs!
10.) THE GODDESS OF LOVE'S "HOW TO LOVE"
The image CD single for Minako in the fifth season, this mock matchmaker's guide perfectly captures her fun, flighty personality.
9.) TOWARDS THE SHOOTING STARS
The most heard Three Lights song, it is the main song used in their attempt to communicate with Princess Kakyuu. Notably, the lyrics were written by Naoko Takeuchi herself.
8.) ETERNAL MELODY
Episode 54 featured this image song for Rei. The English dub used the basic melody for their adaption, call 'Oh Starry Night'.
7.) YOU ARE JUST MY LOVE
This duet between Usagi and Mamoru was played at the end of season 1, basically narrating their fated love and their inevitable return to one another.
6.) DON'T GIVE UP!
The Sailor Stars opening theme was a full on epic with a sweeping orchestra and dramatic shouts, compared to the much more subdued 'Moonlight Legend'.
5.) CARRY ON
The original song played in this scene was 'Moonlight Legend' - not exactly a great battle theme. The English dub made a rare improvement by creating this electric guitar heavy tune, set to their edited scene.
4.) MOON REVENGE
Played at the end of the R movie, each of the Sailor Senshi gets a solo verse in this song.
3.) MY ONLY LOVE
The original song from this scene, 'Illusionary Silver Crystal', was not bad at all, but the Japanese and English versions are incredibly different in tone. The Japanese version is rather surreal, while the English dub is a dramatic love scene, with a fitting song.
2.) AI NO SENSHI
In episode 68, the showdown between the Inner Senshi and the Ayakashi Sisters is set perfectly to this song, down to the last beat.
1.) MOONLIGHT LEGEND
The iconic opening theme for the anime, with 2 versions existing: the version DALI was used in seasons 1+2, while Moon Lips sang the one sued in seasons 3+4. The basic melody of the song was kept for the English dub theme song, which is also iconic in its own way.
