So yeah, today it is International Women’s Day so what a better way to celebrate (we should celebrate women every day tho) than listening to female empowerment anthems (Sailor Moon related of course!).
Crystal might have not been the female empowerment show that the classic anime was but at least the opening song is truly female-empowering and has a strong and important message of women being strong and confident and not needing men to fight for themselves. You’re strong enough.
So here you go, this iconic song with English lyrics so you can know the powerful message of this song.
- English Lyrics -
Moon Pride I want to be your strength Tears roll down my face, eyes burning red Violent like lightning, someone cries out for love
No matter how dark it is, you’re not alone you know? The moonlight is shining on us
Ahh girls don’t give away your self-respect Don’t throw away your destiny for a prince, fight for yourself
Shiny make-up Shine on Collecting the starry sky We aren’t weak girls who need men’s protection
Even if you’re in a flood of sadness, or in the flames of hatred Swear upon a love as dazzling as lightning
You’re not alone, even if you’re by yourself, you know? We’re connected by Moonlight
Ah Girls have an invincible weapon It’s the strength to accept everyone, to comfort the weak
Shiny Make-Up Glittering Nestled in the starry sky The bonds of time travel have given me strength
Even when you want to cry and you’re lonely, and you miss them That’s when you’re running towards love’s awakening
No matter how many times we’re reborn in this universe I will love you
Shiny Make Up Flying on Wings Towards the starry sky Even though there’s sin in this world I believe in the future
And so Shiny Make-up I’ll fight clad in the starry sky A new legend begins from here
La La Pretty Guardian SAILOR MOON put your name in here
Hope you liked it and don’t forget to celebrate women around you and celebrate yourself!
Thank you SM for Super Junior, Girls’ Generation and SHINee. Thank you also for the other groups that even though I’m not a dedicated fan of but I love the major songs and all the members of. Thank you for keeping everything clean and not jumping on the bandwagon of sexual MVs. Thank you also for Superstar SMTown. I owe a lot of the enjoyment and happiness in my life to SM. I just hope you’d work on your treatment of idols please.
