Sailor Moon/Shoujo thread? Anonymous 551
So, uh, what exactly were you hoping to discuss?
Is this a moonie fan thread? or a Shojou General thread? you want us to fan girl about our favorite characters or?
Just wondering OP.
I could be wrong here, but… I'm pretty sure they wanted to discuss the fact that it's Usagi's birthday today.
I never got that into SM… usagi and chibiusa have the same birthday though? Isn't Usagi Chibi's mom or something? Are they also cosmically the same person or something!? Is Usagi her own mom?
I was thinking it was maybe a general mahou shoujo thread.
If that was OPs intentions or not, I now declare this a mahou shoujo because I love magical girl shit
I'm thinking about getting back into watching Sailor Moon again. I was never into it in my life but seeing how popular it's been always made me want to be in the fandom. I last left off at about episode 9 or so due to some stuff that came up but I think it's enjoyable even if the show is repetitive. I love the viz dub the most and I'm not sure if I should be embarrassed about being able to relate to a middle schooler.
Grew up on the original dub, then watched the whole 200 episodes subbed, and now kind of wish I could find the old dub again because it was so bad, it was good. Haven't watched any of the new dub yet.
Ahh, I love sailor moon so damn much. It brings me so many good memories. I also feel like I'm a lot like usagi personality wise (…awful)
It's been a whole year again. Let's wait and see if this thread is still up next year!
I've never watched Sailor Moon
I was humiliated on a stage at an anime convention for saying that I never watched it.
I asked my parents about it once but according to them, they just wouldn't let me watch it.
However, I did watch Cardcaptor Sakura and I do currently love shoujo magical girls such as PreCure.
I should definitely rewatch Cardcaptor Sakura.
I almost finished watching this one but my hard drive corrupted and the only torrent for it was dead when I tried to download again. It was kind of a dumb show but I still wanted to know how it ended.
I watched this twice. Why can I never remember this scene or how it happened
I like Sakura better than Sailor Moon, but Ojamajo Doremi is where its at.
ccs is a great show and – not to pit them against one another – but i wonder why it isn't toted as the "feminist icon" series when it genuinely feels much more feminist than sailor moon? i'm not done with it yet (currently on episode ~23 maybe?) but yeah.
Because Sailor Moon has men dressed like women and girls being airheads, so libfems think it is "empowering".
I haven't seen it but I wonder if Sailor Moon is just more popular because the characters are teenagers while CCS has child characters. People might think CCS is a show targeted for children only and be less inclined to watch it.
I have a male weeb friend whose favorite anime of all time is this. He says it's a masterpiece.
I should rewatch it to confirm that claim. But it seems that a lot more men like CCS than Sailor Moon. Why?
I am obsessed with collecting vintage ccs and sm goods when they're especially cute and rare. I dont care how much it costs, if I see it and I adore it i have to buy it.
This smells like roses and and baby powder. I only have this one.. the next one I'm saving up for is the Alice bottle. I really wish I could locate the CCS shampoo. I've been obsessed with it since I saw it for sale online neqrly 20 years ago. Of course I was a child back then so I couldn't buy it. It haunts me. :l
the sailor moon manga > the anime purely bc the few boys that are in the manga do fuck all aside from get their asses kicked by girls, maybe that's why?
i did binge the entire sakura manga in a week though, and omg it was amazing.
I want to watch Sailor Moon but I feel like I'm too old for it now at 25. My mom prohibited me from watching it as a kid even though it was everywhere and my grandma bought me Sailor Moon merch. I was obsessed with the appearance of the show and loved the fashion. Don't know the plot behind Tuxedo Mask guy, but I was so in love with him since he looked so elegant and really good with Usagi, especially when she's in her white Greek pillar/column dress lol (love that bow/ribbon at the back!). I think he is like older than her and she's in middle school, which is creepy. My child-brain did not get that at the time - they both looked like adults to me.
Tell me nonas, is it worthwhile binging? I tried getting into it in 2015 but wow are the episodes ever formulaic. Is the manga better than the anime?
The episodes are pretty formulaic which is why I don't recommend binging or else you'll get tired. If you still want to watch it I think it's better to watch it more slowly like one episode per week when you have 20 minutes to spare. Then when you get closer to the season finales which are more interesting you can binge watch.
the manga is way faster paced, and focused more on Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask,so i think you'll like it a lot. definitely try it.
Can anyone tell me what anime this is?
Mahou no Tenshi Creamy Mami: Long Goodbye
It's an OVA/Short Film of Creamy Mami from 1984(?) though, so you might want to watch that first.
Thanks ! I really like the style and color palette. I'll check it out
The music from this show is to die for. I will listento it until I'm 80 idc
Does anyone here know where I can find scans of the Shojo Beat magazines in full? I love the nostalgia but no idea where to look..
there are physical copies on ebay. I have a few but plan on buying more.
You are in my eyes anon
She's asking for scans tho not physical copies
I am rewatching the first season right now and I recommend it. It's better than I remember, the later seasons are much more repetitive which kind of tainted my impression of the whole show. Plus in the beginning you have more supporting characters being used aside from just the sailor scouts. Including adorable Naru.
currently watching mermaid melody it’s very good
i’ve been watching through some of the seasons of precure suite is my fav so far
