Rei: "Er... not quite."

Sailor Jupiter looks like she's doing really well, don't you think? (Gogo, my favourite Inner!)

Hi, Krystal! Welcome to the forums, I hope you enjoy your time here. :)

Hey there, RF! Nice to meet you! I've seen you around on DA, so it's nice to get to know ya finally.The creepy mandatory uke/seme binary in yaoi that seems there for the
purpose of fetishizing and heternormatizing gay couples for the pleasure
of a straight audience
GUH, thankyou! While most of my irritation comes from the fact that ALL fanfic seems to try and make one character the "seme" and one the "uke" even though it would be perfectly fine if they were, you know, the way they are
... I have to say it's infinitely more irritating in real life. It gets even creepier when they start describing the "seme" character as "rapist-y" or whatever nonsense, and then you see them apply those same standards to real-life people... it's like gay people only have two modes, "Wanting to be ravaged" and "Wanting to ravage".When people insist that the Starlights are HOMG MEN MEN MEN DAMMIT not
because they are misinformed but because they just don't want there to
be any OH NOES GAYNESS in their Sailor Moon
Can we get married now, plz
And awww, your rats sound adorable. My sister used to raise rats - they were very sweet, she would even put them in little dollshouses and make story books with photos of them (they were really effective). I've always wanted a rat, or a ferret... or a snake. (But they probably wouldn't get along very well.)

Hi there, Ely! Welcome to the forums, it's nice to meet you!
Don't feel bad about being a mom/villain in the Sailor Moon universe, since it'd probably also mean that you're smokin' hot. (ooh queen serenity ooohhh)
As for whether Fiore will show up, who knows? I had some plans early on, but now the comic has changed so much I can't say for certain. Is he a favourite character of yours?

That "Sailor Gemstones" opening is really interesting-! I adore the
timing of the animation with the music. Although, I have to say, I've
never really been a fan of drastic "re-designing" of the Sailors'
uniforms... and this is a good example why. I mean, really? They look
like meringues... pretty, perhaps, as a royal outfit, but for every-day
battle armour? I think Haruka would have a fit.
That being said, it's a shame the author didn't continue it, because it looks ballin'. I would subscribe the heck out of that.
(I couldn't watch the others because of my lousy Internet. As soon as
it improves, I'll be back here watching all of these!)

Yeah, that didn't make a whole lot of sense, did it? I guess, since we
know Ami's mother is a doctor, Ami may have vouched for them and then
her mother pulled some strings... or, something.
Rewatching the episode... it just really seems like the hospital let
Mamoru take a baby home with him for three days. Maybe he's registered as a carer with the hospital or the daycare center? Does that even work?
Obviously he just Tuxedo'd his way into the office, and swooned the nurses into agreement.
Speaking of "odd moments", if you look at the scene just after the MoTD has attacked the babies, and Ami and Usagi are freaking out, Mamoru just... appears out of nowhere! Like he can sense that somewhere, children are vulnerable! Creeper.

First video: Oh! Is that MUGEN? It seems pretty badass!
Queen Beryl was the final boss in the Sailor Moon arcade game, if I recall correctly. Her sprites were beautiful and she was a BAMF (a nightmare to beat, too). And I think you're right - with the power of "Moon Continue? Power!" on her side, Usagi would never lose that way!
And ahhh, that Robot Chicken episode. I'm gonna have to agree with that Monster there.
I'll forever lol @ Queen Boner.
This isn't a lulzy video, but it's quite impressive:
Posted on 24-11-2010 3:12 PM
I think my favourite part of that clip is how embarrassed Ami seems
about it. "Garlic..."
And the two Moons' reactions are priceless!
Here's a great clip from one of my favourite episodes:

Hey there! Welcome to the forums. I love PGSM, too! What do you think your favourite aspect is?
And I know exactly how you feel with the MP3 thing. "No! NO! YOU CAN'T DO THIS TO ME! You can't stop halfway through a speedcore remix! That's like shifting gears without the clutch!" Mental record-skip.
And aww, cats. They are, indeed, fluffy.

Welcome to the forum, SailorShadow! We're glad to have you on board.
Sapphir/Saturn? Well... that's a pairing I haven't heard before.
And don't be embarrassed! Most of us are massive Pokedorks - you should totally show us ur pokemanz some time. And please keep us updated on your Pokemon/Sailor Moon hack!
I've always wanted to draw a Pokemon/Sailor Moon crossover doujin... I don't know if I'll ever have time to see it completed, but one can hope, right?

This is an interesting idea! But I'm a little confused by what you said
about Galaxia's bracelets. They do keep the Sailor Animamates alive,
but they don't stop their powers - in fact, as I understand it, they do
the opposite, allowing them to use powers that aren't really theirs. See, while Tin Nyanko, Lead Crow, Aluminum Seiren and Iron Mouse do come from their respective planets (Mau, Coronis, Mermaid and Chuu - plus Cocoon if you count Sailor Heavy Metal Papillon), they're not the actual guardian Sailor Soldiers of those planets. They were... well, predictably enough, Sailor Mau, Sailor Coronis, Sailor Mermaid, Sailor Chuu and Sailor Cocoon. The Animamates were normal citizens of those planets who - with the help of Galaxia - overpowered those Sailor Soldiers and stole their Star Seeds. I'm not sure if this is clarified canonically, but as far as I understand it, Galaxia's bracelets allowed these otherwise ordinary beings to harness the power of the Star Seeds properly. Without the bracelets there to regulate the power, their bodies wouldn't be able to handle it - so, if they were removed, they would definitely die.
But anyway, after the Animamates died and all the Star Seeds that Galaxia stole were reincarnated, I imagine that they would come back as the original Sailor Mau, Sailor Coronis, etc. rather than as the Animamates.
So the idea that newly-discovered planets in the solar system could be considered Mau, Coronis, etc. is a very interesting one, but a story about them would be better to focus on the original Soldiers, not reincarnated Animamates; although a story about the Animamates could be just as interesting! I wonder, after the Star Seeds were returned, were the Animamates reborn on their planets as well? Did they realise the error of their ways? Or did they get their butts handed to them by some seriously pissed off Sailors?
I really like the idea of newly-discovered celestial bodies being tied in to the Sailor Moon canon! I wonder if we could find a place to call Astarte, for Sera Myu fans?

Greetings! This thread is a collection of links pertaining to Sailor Moon, both to educate and entertain. There are a wide variety of Sailor Moon fans on the internet, from those who only remember it vaguely from early morning cartoons, and those (like myself) who are probably a bit too obsessed for their own good, but are ever-curious. Hopefully, no matter where you fall on the radar, you'll find something here to click on.Information
To watch the Anime online:
You can probably find YouTube videos of the entire series to date, but these have a habit of being incomplete, out-of-synch, and perpetually deleted whenever Toei gets bored. So here are a couple of (slightly) more permanent links:http://www.watchsailormoon.com/
With a name like "WatchSailorMoon.com", you'd expect this to be the only website you'd ever need. However, with the exception of StarS, the last season, all episodes are from the English Dub. If that's all you want, or if you only want to watch StarS, then this probably is
the only website you'll ever need. Just be wary that there are a lot of ads (but that's to be expected from a website that has so many videos).http://www.instantz.net/anime/Sailor_Moon.html
This is a collection of Veoh video links (similar to YouTube), which, as well as being whole episodes instead of having to divide them into thirds like YT, appears to be entirely in Japanese with subtitles. Note: episode links open full-screen videos.http://www.sailormooncenter.net/
This is pretty well-known, and it offers a few direct downloads of episodes, YouTube links to watch online, and some Torrents as well. Recently they seem to have gone through some difficulties, and many episodes are not available, but they are very active in trying to recoup their losses.To read the Manga:http://digital-wing.com/neonobility/
This wonderful website offers comprehensive, quality scans of the entire main Sailor Moon Manga story, available in convenient direct downloads. The version offered is the MixxZine (who later went on to become TokyoPop) English "translated" Manga, which falls into a sort of "grey area" of legality, but it is close enough to the original for this not to be a major concern.http://www.kurozuki.com/takeuchi/
"The Manga of Naoko Takeuchi" is another well-known website that offers text translations of... well, the Manga of Naoko Takeuchi. As well as the Sailor Moon
manga, the website offers information about the other stories she's written, like Sailor V
, Toki Meka
and PQ Angels
, and a few articles pertaining to lyric and text translations from the Sailor Moon Anime + Live Action. Especially useful when combined with the scans from the link above, to make sure you're getting the right story.http://missdream.reisei-sa.net/
Miss Dream is a "Sailor Moon translation project", and their goal is to translate everything they can possibly find that isn't already in English - and they do a fine job. Among a variety of incredibly interesting things, they have a few of the Manga side-stories that are currently absent from Neo Nobility, and can help to round out your collection. They're worth a visit no matter what you're looking for...http://www.crimsonnight.com/
Crimson Night, a website that "features a variety of games from online shooters to weird arcade style pinball/maze hybrids", seems like an odd place to find a scanlation of the entire Codename: Sailor V
manga... and it is, but you can! An incredibly "retro" issue, the version available was translated by Grand Theft Fansub
and Anvil 3133T
, and it includes a lot of clever in-jokes that make the reading experience even better.
If you weren't aware, the Codename: Sailor V
manga is both a prequel to and predecessor of the Sailor Moon metastory, and it details Minako's life as a 13-year-old Sailor V before she began to fight alongside the other Sailor Soldiers as Venus. It's highly recommended.To watch PGSM (The Live Action):
Again, you might be able to find the entire series on YouTube, but here are a few alternative links:http://www.veoh.com/collection/HJUPGSM
Another Veoh video collection that encases the entire series. You may need to download a site-specific program to watch them all in full. Watch "TV-N_Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon - Act"
first - "Act 0" is actually a sort of "prequel" episode and should be watched after
everything else (as it contains a lot of spoilers, and you probably wouldn't know what the heck was going on).http://www.tvnihon.com/
TV-Nihon is the group who first subbed the Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon
series, and their videos are the most widely distributed. Be aware, though, that as one of their first projects, their subtitles in PGSM can be a little bit... shall we say, "embellished"? Just take what you're reading with a sizable chunk of salt, though, and you'll be fine.
Oh, and this website offers Torrents, for those of you who prefer to download that way.http://kirari-pgsm.net/
Kirari-PGSM, a quite comprehensive PGSM website in its own right, also offers direct downloads of individual TV-Nihon subbed episodes, for those who don't do Torrents but still want something to show at the end of their downloading.To watch Sera Myu (the stage Musicals):
... Yes, as with any Sailor Moon video, you might be able to find some Sera Myu stages on YouTube, but it can be very confusing for the viewer to sort them out. Here! Alternatives!http://www.seramyuantics.net/
Among other invaluable Sera Myu information, you can find many streaming Sera Myu videos, in their entirety, and in the right order. Ahh...
that's the sound of satisfaction. If you like what you see, Sera Myu Antics also has lots of options for people looking to purchase their own hard copy!http://soul-hunter.com/sailormoon/
This website known as "The Oracle" also has, among other wonderful things, a couple of Sera Myu videos available for direct viewing and download.For Resources:
I'm lumping these two together (not just because they're by the same person), but because they're both websites any and all Moonies should already know. Manga Style
offers high-quality scans of every Manga artbook, including the Material and Infinity Collections, while Sailor Music
gives us information and downloads pertaining to almost every facet of Sailor Moon music. They're both incredible websites.http://moon-prism.net/
This is the approved overall Sailor Moon fanlisting
, but even if that doesn't mean much to you, they're worth a bookmark just for their extensive and high-quality gallery of Sailor Moon anime laserdisc and cover scans. Some of the most beautiful resources this side of the 'net.For Hard Information:
The Oracle, linked to above, has a lot of comprehensive Sailor Moon information about a variety of aspects, in an attractive Encyclopedia format.http://wikimoon.org/
It's a Wikipedia.
For Sailor Moon.Of course!http://www.usagi.org/doi/smoon/index.html
An oldie, but a goodie, Hitoshi Doi's Sailor Moon website is a plethora of authentic information.www.sailorsystem.com/
Another blast from the past, "Castle in the Sky - Sailor Moon" is a good mid-step for fans of the dub who'd like to learn more about the original Japanese version. Includes interesting articles on episodes that were dropped from the DiC/Cloverway releases, and some insightful observations relating to animation.http://eternalsailormoon.org/
"The Sailor Senshi Page" has also been around for a while now, but it still has a lot of entertaining and informative articles and opinion pieces.For More Links:http://digital-wing.com/deepsubmerge/Deep Submerge
is a directory of quality Sailor Moon websites in all shapes, sizes and forms. You can easily lose a weekend here.For Funhttp://www.sailorvgame.org/
A comprehensive website dedicated to Sailor Moon video/computer games, both official and fan-made, with several entertaining contributions from the website author himself. If you can play it, you can find it here. (And if you've never played Sailor Moon: Another Story
before... then you definitely should! Right now!)http://www.sailor-games.com/
The SSP, or Super Senshi Playground
, is another great game-based website that will entertain you for hours, if not days. There are even Oekaki boards and forums! Includes a gallery of massive and high-quality Anime images, to boot.http://legend.neo-romance.net/
Although I'm somewhat inactive now, I can tell you that Moonlight Legend
is an incredibly entertaining and, above all, friendly online Trading Card Game dedicated to the Sailor Moon Anime. If you've never played an online TCG before, well... there's no better time to start than now!
Disclaimer: This website is insanely addictive and you may not see sunlight for a few good days after signing up. You've been warned! ;)http://www.sailormoon.biz/
A Sailor Moon Doujinshi Library (a "doujinshi" is a fan-made comic, in this case for Sailor Moon - 4KH could be considered a "doujinshi", though most that fall under that distinction are published in a magazine/comic book-like hard copy). Contains many NSFW images, but they are easy enough to avoid, and there are plenty of PG stories that all fans can enjoy. I recommend the "A-Zone" series, by the same author as Azumanga Daioh

Well, if you ever did want to read the manga, you can download pretty much all of it here at NeoNobility
. It's the official MixxZine English "translation" as opposed to a scanlation, and they're missing a couple of side-stories, but it's pretty much all you need for a proper understanding of the manga story (paired with these transcripts of the original Japanese manga
during the hairier parts of Americanization).
One of the stories that NeoNobility is missing at the moment is Makoto's "Exam Battle", called The Melancholy of Makoto
. While a simple story, I found it very poignant. Makoto's attitude towards studying is very similar to my own and I found her quite an inspiration, especially the very last panel. This extra story (as well as a few other Manga extras) has been scanlated by Miss Dream, and can be found here
. It doesn't feature Nephrite, but it does offer some insight into Manga!Makoto's psyche.
Naoko's telling of the story is certainly different from the Anime, but it is very beautiful and certainly worth your time.
Posted on 27-10-2010 10:44 PM
Wow, really? I'm flattered that you'd think to do that!
But, vain creature that I am, I went to check (fufufu)... but I can't find it. I don't know if it's because I'm just not looking in the right places, but it is evading me. Maybe a link would be best for everyone?
Posted on 25-10-2010 4:46 AM
Adorable as always!
I think I like the image of Minako teaching Usagi how to play volleyball the best. It's so reminiscent of the anime. Very natural!
