Sailor Moon R The Movie~ The Promise of the Rose Review

25th June 2017

Dear Chibi,

Sailor Moon R The Movie: The Promise of the Rose is out on DVD remastered! I haven’t seen this movie in quite a while, but it was by far my favourite of the 3 Sailor Moon movies. Seeing it again so many years later, my thoughts largely remain the same.

Sailor Moon R The Promise of the Rose

“Long before Mamoru found his destiny with Usagi, he befriended a lonely boy who helped him recover from the crash that claimed his parents. This long-forgotten friend, Fiore, has been searching the galaxy for a flower worthy of that sweet gesture long ago. The mysterious flower he finds is beautiful, but has a dark side. Faced with an enemy blooming out of control, it’s up to Sailor Moon and the Sailor Guardians to band together, stop the impending destruction and save Mamoru!”

As with most anime movies, this film is best enjoyed as a standalone. Nothing in the film affects the main story at all, and the actual villains from the series (The Black Moon Clan) are never mentioned. The events portrayed in the film seem to take place somewhere between episode 77 and 82, after Chibiusa learns of everyone’s identity and when Usagi and Mamoru get back together. It makes sense since the film debuted in Japanese theaters on 5 December 1993, a week before episode 77 aired. While it’s not necessary to watch the movie, it’s a delightful experience with plenty of emotion and drama.

Feared Soldier~ Sailor Saturn (Seramyu) Digital Painting

4th June 2017

Dear Chibi,

I once joked about only doing one digital painting per year… and it looks like that’s actually happening XD. Well, here it is! This is my first time painting Japanese singer Karin Takahashi as Sailor Saturn from the Sailor Moon Musical Un Nouveau Voyage :D I really enjoyed her performance and had the sudden urge to do a Sailor Moon fanart (it’s been a long time!)

Please click on the thumbnail for a larger view :)

I end up spending my entire weekend at the computer with my wacom tablet. All up, it took around 24 hours to finish. I’m really quite happy with how it turned out :) I took some liberties with her eyes to give it a more anime-ish feel. Hopefully she still has some resemblance to Karin XD

See it come together (Work in progress below)

Ramen and Chocolate

3rd June 2017

Dear Chibi,

June is upon us..and so is winter. It always amuses me how much the temperature seems to change the moment a new season hits. I’ve already taken out my jackets, gloves, scarves and electric blanket :’D The only thing left is a beanie and I don’t think there’s much else I can wear on top…

I’ve also caught up with latest Game of Thrones. Thankfully the wait isn’t too long till the new season :D I didn’t think I would be watching this, but here I am… 6 seasons in and excited for what’s next! In the meantime, we’re back to watching Better Call Saul season 3. Gus is here!!

Tonight I caught up with my Tee Buddies Roy and Robbie @Ippudo for dinner. The pork bun was delish~

Birthday at The Grounds

28th May 2017

Dear Chibi,

Today I got to hang out with my sisters at The Grounds of Alexandria. Kat treated Kaz and I to lunch at The Potting Shed~ our last birthday outting for the year. Last time I was here I ordered the cheese burger so I wanted to try something different. I end up going for the ‘Braised Rabbit and Fresh Egg Tagliatelle’..I know, weird choice…. braised rabbit?? Not long after I ordered it, I started to get nervous about the idea. Oh god please taste normal ^^” Well, thankfully it just tasted like braised beef in a tomato base sauce.

After our meal, we browsed around and checked out the markets & farm animals. This place looks amaziiinnggg. The flowers are gorgeous too.

Winter is coming..!

16th May 2017

Dear Chibi,

Last Saturday Hubby and I went up to Mt Wilson to see the colours of Autumn. Prime time would’ve been early April, but there’s something charming about leaves falling to the ground as well (as long as it’s not in your backyard, then there’s work to do! ;D)

We didn’t get to spend a lot of time here, but it was fun :) Next time we’ll bring a DSLR, hehe.
