Tips to reading the cue sheets
- Pages 104-117 are the master Cue Lists for the music used in each season, categorized by theme. The final column lists the position on the CD the cue is on. This could be on a Music Box disc or one of the series Music Collections. For example:
2-2-2indicates Music Box disc 2, track 2, cue 2 while
ST2-5-2indicates Sailor Stars Music Collection Vol. 2, track 5, cue 2. The abbreviations EX = Sailor Moon Music Collection Extra Version, R = Sailor Moon R Music Collection, etc.
- Pages 118-123 list the BGM cues used in the movies
- Pages 124-195 are Cue Sheets for all 200 episodes. The third column in each episode sheet contains the cue identifier (a letter-number combination), which you use to refer back to the series cue lists (pp. 104-117) for the specific disc that music is on. The cue ID follows the format
CD name-track#-tracksection. The cue IDs are listed with the track titles on each disc (see above).
Unreleased Music: Studio Library Cues
Many music cues used in Sailor Moon were not published on the original soundtracks because Toei Animation did not own the rights to distribute this music. These are studio library pieces which Toei purchased from commercial production music publishers. Some of the unreleased Sailor Moon library pieces are from classical compositions.
Some of the Sailor Moon studio library pieces are known to originate from BMG Music Publishing, which was later acquired by Universal Publishing Production Music and C MUSIC Professional Library (source: this thread on SailormoonForum.com).

Studio Library Audio Rips
These TV episode audio clips were ripped from the Sailor Moon DVDs by a Sailormusic.net Forums [closed] member named RattleMan. They contain dialogue. If the piece of music you’re looking for appears in this directory that probably means that the music cue is not available on the original soundtracks. Episode descriptions are available at WikiMoon.
