Spirited Away: A wicked paradise
Sailor Moon - Black Lady / Wicked Lady
I’m just crazy over this character… I love my Black Lady cels very much. I haven’t watched the show in forever so once I do I hope to do commentary and have a better more detailed description on them
Sailor Moon has a complicated unpleasant history at least in the English speaking countries
To anyone who doesn't know Sailor Moon has been revered as the most successful, important and popular animes of all time
it had become hugely popular in the U.S as a children's series in its edited form, Although in its native Japan it is a far more sophisticated and mature series. Sailor Moon follows a girl named Usagi (aka "Serena" in the English dub) who has been given super powers by a magical cat. Soon, Usagi has recruited the Sailor Soldiers, a group of junior high school girls who use their powers to fight evil.
No uncut english dub exists of the first two seasons of Sailor Moon though all the other seasons and movies have one which I find very odd. Still uncut or not there were critical changes made that could not be reversed in the engilsh dub. The SuperS specials and the final season of Sailor Moon "Sailor Moon Stars" were never aired in the U.S or dubbed into english either.
Sailor Moon known as Bishojo Senshi Sailor Moon (officially translated Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon) originally ran in Japan from 1992-1997 which consisted of 5 seasons 3 movies and 5 specials/shorts

My favorite character Black Lady is From Sailor Moon R (Season 2) who is Usagi/Sailor Moons daughter from the future known as Chibiusa/Small Lady who longs to be a grown lady, she travels to the past for Sailor Moons help from the Black Moon Clan who has sent the future to a screeching halt. Further along into the story she is brainwashed by the enemy and is transformed into an adult, now calling herself Black Lady (Wicked Lady in the English dub). Believing her parents were cruel and nobody loves or cared about her she stops at nothing to kill the Sailor Soldiers even if it meant destroying herself.
Black Lady is only shown in 4 episodes 85-88 (78-81 in the English dub)
here’s something interesting I found online I don’t know how true it is though
“Takeuchi struggled with a name for Black Lady, initially calling her "The Black Queen" “
