Sailor Moon cuteness from Japan

2nd April 2018

Dear Chibi,

Kaz recently came back from her Japan trip and was lucky enough to catch the Sailor Moon x My Melody Cafe in Osaka :D The photos looked super cute and I got all excited just hearing about her experience. Even though I didn’t get to go (It’s only there for a limited time) Kaz brought back this adorable cushion as a souvenir ^^!! Yay, thankssss!

Sailor Moon Crystal Season 3 (Limited Edition) Review

19th March 2018

See my review of Sailor Moon Crystal: Set 1 and Set 2.

Dear Chibi,

Sailor Moon Crystal Season 3 finally made its way to Aussie Bluray/Dvds :D! The wait for Season 4 has been painfully long (we still don’t know when it’ll be out) but at least I can now revisit the latest season in its full glory. It has both the original Japanese audio with English subtitles as well as Viz Media’s English dub.

The Packaging

As you can see, the packaging is on point! Like the previous two sets, this limited edition case is glossy and really pretty :D I do feel like I’m getting a premium product.

Sailor Moon Season 1 Set Bluray Review

3rd January 2018

Dear Chibi,

Ready for the first review of 2018?

Sailor Moon season 1 is finally out on Bluray in HD format for the first time in Australia. It uses the newly created High Definition masters from Japan which is super exciting~ but what about the DVD sets fans have been collecting so far?

Madman will continue to release SuperS and Sailor Stars on DVD, but will be using the Japanese HD upscales instead of the European masters. I actually really liked the European masters used for seasons 1-3, so I’m hoping these will be just as good.

Comparing the limited edition DVD next to the Bluray boxset, the packaging is basically identical (just different sizes)

Sailor Moon Musical~ Le Mouvement Final

23rd December 2017

Dear Chibi,

Another year, another Sailor Moon musical :D This year’s seramyu is based on the 5th and final season: Sailor Stars. I’ve really enjoyed watching these the last couple of years, so it’s a bit sad that it’s ending. Nevertheless, it had a really good run and we made lots of fun memories :)

My previous blogs: Petit Etrangere (2014) | Un Nouveau Voyage (2015) | Amour Eternal (2016)

I invited Kaz and Kat over to watch the show together. It’s sort of become our little tradition. But first~ home made lunch :)

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?”

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.

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)

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 :)

Wow…so pretty and shiny *_*
