Sailor Moon S Part 2 DVD Review

17th September 2017

Dear Chibi,

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been spending my free time indulging in the newly released Sailor Moon S Part 2 on DVD :D Madman has also recently announced we’ll be getting the 90s Sailor Moon on Blu-Ray for the first time ever! The first 3 seasons will be available as complete Blu-Ray sets starting from 6th December 2017, and the remaining sets will roll out along with the DVDs. SuperS and Sailor Stars (the final 2 seasons) will use newly created masters from Japan for both the DVD and BD sets. Ahhhhh, I can’t wait to see how these look :D!!

For the meantime, here are my thoughts on Sailor Moon S Part 2! (Check out my Sailor Moon S Part 1 review here)

Sailor Moon S DVD Part 2 Madman

“Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune’s search for the three talismans has led them to become targets of the Witches 5, the Death Busters’ beautiful and deadly agents, who also seek the talismans to summon the powerful Holy Grail! Now, Sailor Moon and the other Sailor Guardians are on a race against time to save their friends’ lives and prevent the power of the Holy Grail from falling into the wrong hands. 

Meanwhile, Chibi-Usa befriends a young girl named Hotaru, whose mysterious power quickly attracts the attention of both friend and foe. Is there a connection between Hotaru and the enemy? And who is the Messiah of Silence that is said to bring destruction? Will Sailor Moon’s new power be enough to protect the world from the impending apocalypse?”

Somps & Dong’s Wedding @Milton Park, Bowral

5th September 2017

Dear Chibi,

Last weekend I had the pleasure of witnessing my dear friend Sompies wed the man of her dreams. I’ve known Somps for over a decade. Sweet and kind, she is one of the most easy-going and down to earth person I know. She kind of reminds me of a boy sometimes (girls are usually much more dramatic XD). Over the years, Somps has always treated me like a younger sister and I wish her nothing but happiness in this next chapter of her life.

Congratulations to both the bride and groom! You guys looked fabulous. Below are some moments of the day captured by my talented Hubby. Enjoy the eye candy!

Kat’s 31st Birthday @COOH & Karaoke

27th August 2017

Dear Chibi,

Today we celebrated Kat’s 31st with lunch at COOH Organic Cafe at Alexandria. It was our first time here and we were not disappointed! The food was fresh and delicious. Out of our 3 meals though, I think Kat’s pumpkin falafel is the winner.

A wedding gift for Somps & Dong

6th August 2017

Dear Chibi,

Today I spent most of the day working on a new painting as a gift for Somps & Dong’s upcoming wedding :)! I wanted this to look soft, as though it’s been done with pencil & water-colour. I’ve always liked the look of water colour art, but since I’m not too confident with traditional methods, I decided to do it digitally.

I’m really happy with how this turned out… I think it’s really pretty ^.^

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.
