Sailor Moon S Part 1 Limited Edition DVD Review

25th February 2017

Dear Chibi,

Sailor Moon S Part 1 DVD Madman

After a one and a half year wait since Sailor Moon R part 2, Sailor Moon S part 1 is finally here!! :D This is my review of Madman’s Australian and New Zealand release, which contains Viz Media’s new English dub along with the original Japanese audio. This is the 5th volume of the set and contains 19 episodes on 3 discs. Only 5 volumes to go!

See my review of Sailor Moon: Part 1 & Part 2
Sailor Moon R: Part 1 & Part 2

Sailor Moon S is my second favourite season (just behind Sailor Stars) and introduces two new outer senshi Sailor Uranus & Sailor Neptune. The popularity of the third season is largely due to this pair, and it’s not hard to see why. THEY ARE JUST. SO. COOL. And ruthless. They also happen to be lovers. What makes this release special is that we finally have an English uncut version that aims to preserve the integrity of the original Japanese scripts. They are no longer “cousins” (Which is pretty hilarious.. xD). This is long overdue, don’t you think? ;)

Sailor Moon Musical ~Amour Eternal viewing

30th December 2016

Dear Chibi,

It’s time for our annual Seramyu viewing again! This year’s performance is titled “Amour Eternal” based on the 4th season known as SuperS/Dream Arc. Fans don’t often quote the 4th season as their favourite, but it’s still enjoyable nevertheless and has a fun group of villains. I’m so glad the Outer Senshi return, because I loved them so much in ‘Un Nouveau Voyage’!

Before we started, I made spaghetti bolognese for lunch and Kat brought along a plate of spinach cob dip! Yum!

Sailor Moon Communicator Watches Gashapon Set Review

24th September 2016

Dear Chibi,

Sailor Moon Communicator Watches Gashapon

The shinies are here!! :D Look how pretty they are!

My bro pre-ordered these cute Sailor Moon Communicator Watches for my birthday back in April. The July release date got pushed back, so it took a while for these to arrive from Japan. I wasn’t sure what to expect in terms of quality, since these are capsule toys after all. Would I be able to wear it? Can I use it as a real watch? Would it be too plastic and fragile? Seeing how much I loved the Sailor Moon mirror compacts, I had a feeling everything will be alright :D

Sailor Moon R Part 2 DVD Review

17th July 2016

See my review of Sailor Moon: Part 1 & Part 2
Sailor Moon R: Part 1

Dear Chibi,

About a week ago I received my copy of Sailor Moon R Part 2 on DVD (AU/NZ Madman release)! This is the 4th volume of the series and contains 21 episodes.

Sailor Moon R Part 2 is where it starts to get really good…and oh my the feels. I really enjoy just sitting down and watching the show. You might think it’s simply a case of nostalgia, but I’d like to think the charm and appeal of Sailor Moon is timeless. While this isn’t a Bluray disc, I never thought the video quality was poor, or outdated. For a show that’s made in the 90s, these remasters are great.

Sailor Moon Micro Block

12th June 2016

Dear Chibi,

This morning we built the Sailor Moon Micro Block I received from Kaz :D And when I say ‘we built’ I meant Hubby built ;D The instruction sheet looked intimidating for me, so I just helped sort out the different pieces XD

Work in progress photos:

 

All up, it took around 50 minutes to put together, while we sipped on tea at our cosy kotatsu. Thanks Hubby :D

 

 

Sailor Moon R (Part 1) DVD Limited Edition Madman release

4th June 2016

Dear Chibi,

See my review of Sailor Moon Season 1: Part 1 & Part 2

SailorMoonR-part1-01

Sailor Moon R (Season 2 Part 1) is finally out on DVD in Australia! Part 2 comes out in just a few days. This release consists of 4 discs starting with episode 47 (Moon Returns: The Mysterious Aliens Appear) and ending at episode 68 (Protect Chibi-Usa: Clash of the Ten Warriors). It covers the entire “Doom Tree Arc” and the first half of the “Black Moon Arc”. I was lucky enough to get the limited edition copy, so be prepared for lots of eye candy!! *_*

The limited edition copy comes in a nifty collector’s box, big enough to fit the 2 DVDs from this season. It also includes an illustrated booklet, which I looooove! You’ll find plenty of gorgeous artwork by Italian artist Marco Albiero, who redrew a lot of the old 90s anime art which is featured on a lot of GE merchandise.

Click on the thumbnails for a larger view:

Everything is visually appealing from the choice of colours, to the art and design. No complaints, really.

Moon Kaleidoscope Proplica April Fools Prank

3rd April 2016

Dear Chibi,

I’m not usually a fan of April Fools, but this year I was tempted to try something myself. The idea came to mind because so much Sailor Moon merchandise have been released over the last 3 years, and so much more are coming. I wondered if I’d be able to convince people of this new Proplica of the “Moon Kaleidoscope”?

Sailor Moon Moon Kaleidoscope Proplica April Fools

I quickly photoshopped this image together while I was at work (bad, I know :P) This beautiful 3D render of the Moon Kaleidoscope is actually created by digitalAuge. The background was ripped off an official proplica image, and I slapped on Sailor Moon’s 20th Anniversary logo and added a fine print. Of course, the fine print in the real promos are in Japanese ;D
