Sailor Moon Crystal Set 2 (Limited Edition) Review

30th April 2017

See my review of Sailor Moon Crystal Set 1 Limited Edition.

Dear Chibi,

Sailor Moon Crystal Set 2 (Madman release)

Guess what? Sailor Moon Crystal Set 2 is finally here!! :D I was super excited to find it in the mail (thank you Madman!) and proceeded to quickly unbox it like a child during Christmas. Except when I finally held it in my hand, my first thought was ‘Wait.. what is this?’ I swear all the promo pictures had the box looking white, but when I held it in my hand the box looked gold! Thankfully, it’s not actually white but a slight beige/gold because I wasn’t a fan of the white. This looks a lot prettier in person than it did in the pictures :)

Part 2: Azabu Juban Summer Night Festival & Sailor Moon Real Life Locations

29th August 2014

Part 1: I flew to Japan for the Sailor Moon Musical (and it was awesome!)

Dear Chibi,

JapanTrip2014-34

On Sunday 24th August, Kaz and I dressed up in a Yukata to experience Japan’s Summer Festival for the first time!! And what better festival to check out, than the one in Azabu Juban where the story Sailor Moon is set? We managed to find these Yukata sets in Harajuku (Takeshita Dori) for a reasonable price. We’ve never worn one before, but luckily thanks to youtube, it wasn’t too difficult and was a lot of fun to wear! We met up with Brad in the afternoon at Hiroo Station, who then took us around to several Sailor Moon real life locations! YOU ARE AWESOME BRAD, THANK YOU :D!

Arisugawa No Miya Memorial Park

A lot of scenes from Sailor Moon took place in this park :D

Part 1: I flew to Japan for the Sailor Moon Musical (and it was awesome!)

29th August 2014

Dear Chibi,

I’m finally back from my “SAILOR MOON TRIP TO JAPAN” adventure~ flying to Tokyo for the Sailor Moon Musical :D Instead of always ‘wishing I was there’, I decided I was going to make it happen this time. The idea itself excited me just as much as being there :D Sailor Moon is one of my most favourite things ever, so being able to watch a live show for its 20th Anniversary, meeting other moonies, buying merch and shopping in Tokyo in general (I LOVE JAPAN)~ was going to be great. So the journey begins, with just me and Kaz (my twin sister) who’s also into Sailor Moon!

Unfortunately, the trip didn’t go as smoothly as I had hoped. The moment I got off the plane from Narita Airport, I was hit with the crazy humidity and 36°C heat and got sick… so sick that I end up wasting an entire day lying on a couch without air con :’D Thankfully, Kaz came home that night with some dinner and meds for me :D She spent the day exploring Shibuya herself.

Kaz with our 7-Eleven dinner :’D We stayed in Shin-Okubo.

The next day was the day of the the Musical~ Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon: Petite Étrangèr :D :D Brad helped us and Cycyn get tickets to the first show, so we met up to see it together. Both Brad and Cycyn have been my long-time online Sailor Moon friends, and it was my first time meeting Cycyn in person!! SHE IS SO CUTE AND BUBBLY!! AHHH I’M SO HAPPY I COULD FINALLY MEET HER :D!! (She’s even appeared in my dream before…lol that sounds kinda creepy XD)

My first impressions of Sailor Moon Crystal

7th July 2014

Dear Chibi,
2 days ago, we finally got to watch the very first episode of the highly anticipated new Sailor Moon reboot: ‘Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal

sailormooncrystal-01

..AND I LOVED IT!!  IT WAS FREAKIN AMAZINNNNGG!!! :D :D :D

I basically spent the entire weekend re-watching the episode over and over~ and listening to the new theme song ‘Moon Pride‘ by Momoiro Clover Z on loop. It’s no surprise why it’s been stuck in my head ever since. But hey, I don’t mind one bit! :D

When I first saw the teaser trailer, I had some mixed feelings. I liked it, but it also seemed a bit low budget and it worried me. I tried my best to remain optimistic. You never know until you’ve seen the real deal, right?

So July 5th was drawing near…we’d already spent months counting down to this date. However, an exclusive event in Japan was announced for June 30th for Usagi’s Birthday, with an advanced screening of the first episode. This meant that there were going to be people who would see it before everyone else.  I knew the chances of leaked footages and visuals were highly likely.  I really dislike spoilers, especially for something I care so much about. It was only 5 days away… There was no way I’d let others ruin it for me. I decided to avoid social media and all Sailor Moon related websites altogether. I had unsubscribed myself from all Sailor Moon pages from Facebook so nothing would come up on my news feed. It was a bit hard at first (always tempted to tweet!), but it helped a lot that I was really busy with work which took my mind off it. IT WAS TOTALLY WORTH IT! :D NO REGRETS!

I was so nervous staring at the countdown timer on Crunchyroll… my heart was racing! When the opening credits started playing, I started screaming with joy. I had this massive smile on my face the entire time. It basically blew my mind. OMG THE FEELS T^T
