Which Sailor Moon musical DVD should I start with?
The Sailor Moon musicals are well worth watching first of all and I can't express how much I want everyone to watch them. But which one should you start with?
I would say if you're planning to eventually own them all or watch all the Sailor Moon musicals, start with the first musical and watch them all in order as while each musical can be watched on it's own (with the exception of the late Miyuke Kanbe's Dracul Trilogy which must be watched in order, though is only available on VHS anyway) the musical themes build on each other as the musicals progress offering subtle emotional cues later on.
For example the instrumental for a song from one of the earlier musicals may be used to introduce a character in a scene in one of the later musicals. Some songs even change and evolve such as Sailor War which gets more and more dramatic with each version as more and more characters are added.
If you've never seen one though and want to spend your money on just one or two DVDs because you want the best musical I highly recommend the Third Stage Legend of Kaguya Island musical which has some of the best music out of all the musicals with some new and classic songs from previous musicals, some great choreography and effects as well as some cool special features. It also offers a story that's 100% unique to the musicals (i.e. not based on the manga or anime) so you definitely get more bang for your buck that way.
I may be a bit biased as I actually managed to see this one performed live in Tokyo ;) but it still holds up as one of best musicals and definitely my favourite and is a great place to start your collection even if it is the second last musical performed. Happy shopping!
