Poor Image: Franchise.Sailor Moon get usage counts

So I've noticed this page was recently set up to be an umbrella covering the multiple branches of the anime Sailor Moon. I noticed that the image has switched from an image from the characters of the original anime to the North American anime logo. I think it's strange to use that, however, since the entire set of pages is written from the perspective of the Japanese originals and the page even covers adaptations that were never adapted into English at all. I'd suggest it either switch to a Japanese rendering of the logo, or a representative image of the character that can reasonably cover all of the media.

I'm mainly bringing this up since the image appears to have shifted a few times and it's probably best to hammer it out here.

Image? Not sure what that logo looks like...
Becky: Who are you? The Mysterious Stranger: An angel.
Huck: What's your name? The Mysterious Stranger: Satan.

I don't have a huge problem with the current image, but I'd also be happy with a pic of Sailor Moon herself or the logo from the original anime.

The top of this page is a good example of the classic logo, though it obviously needs to be resized.

Here is an example of the logo they've used since the 2005 live-action series. This may be preferable since it also has English incorporated into it, though it also needs a slight resize.

Here's a couple of pics of Usagi.

Here's one that combines the logo with the main character, though it is (obviously) an anniversary picture.

There's also a version of the same image that is altered to switch the logo out to an English one.

[up][up] I like the second one. DAT iconic pose. cool

I do like that pose. here's another one of it

Even though it didn't originate in an English-speaking country, I prefer the English logo, as in post 7.

Huck: What's your name? The Mysterious Stranger: Satan.

No, the other one.
[up]It's at least better than the current. The anniversary bit is a little distracting, though.

Looks like we're gonna need a crowner for this one.

While I don't like the "20th Anniversary" text, I am fine with [up][up][up][up]. Also, while it's an English logo, it's also an official logo used by Kodansha for overseas releases, so it's not as odd as the 90s American logo. Which was my only real beef.

And the text isn't all that bad since the show is at its 20th anniversary.

The 20th anniversary won't last forever.

Crowner's hooked. I'm not where I can look at the pics, so one of the items needs a description.

I'd prefer we don't use an image from the anime. It's already everywhere. I'd prefer something that better represents the franchise.

[up] What about using a cover from the original manga?
They hit harder, but you can always get up. They don't

[up][up]fair enuf. it turns out that image is already on Sailor Moon Main Cast anyway. Man, those images need resizing.

[up]wouldn't that make more sense on Manga/SailorMoon?

[up] Gee, you're right! Those images on the character sheet could really use some help. sad

...aaaaand it's still in the green. This would wrap tomorrow, so I think it's safe to go ahead and call. The new pic's up and tagged; locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
