Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon: Another Story is a role playing game for the Super Nintendo. It is based on the popular anime and manga series of the same name.
Sorry Toonami-lovers, but this translation heavily relies on knowledge of the fan-subtitled Sailor Moon anime, and fansub anime in general. Names will be left as-is (expect to see Usagi instead of Serena), some items are left untouched (like Ginzuishou instead of Silver Moon Crystal…what), and even some general words are left alone (does someone seriously say “sonna” as an expression of disbelief? That is pretty inscrutable for more casual fans).
As for the translation itself, FuSoYa has done a superb job, even adding new code for a variable width font which looks really nice. Even the signs have been translated, which is a really nice touch.
ADDENDUM: Make sure you apply mteam’s fix (link) over the English translation, which makes the intro work as intended in modern emulators.

User Review Information
Translation Not As GoodReviewed By: julayla on 31 Jan 2018
I gotta be honest. I respect the translators for trying. But something about this? Well, I’m not talking about the names and such, I’m talking about how the game is not as good. Some of the meaning is lost and well, to be perfectly honest, the dialogue itself loses meaning when it takes on the form of literal translation. Maybe if there was some revised translating that could make the game in certain parts feel the same way as its Japanese text translation, then I may probably enjoy the game.
