I want to buy one but there's no guys shirt. =(
Yeah, it's a pity. Then again, you know how gender stereotypes are...
I wish they'd release more gender-neutral Sailor Moon stuff. Like, maybe a black T-Shirt with the just the Japanese logo of Classic on it done in a gender-neutral color scheme.
You see, it's things like this that make me wish for a more 'neutral' approach in general. We've all seen how different you can make "S.M" look by marketing it in different ways (the Toonami ads/intros, for example).
Kind of like what you said, it's gender stereotypes. If something's 'girly' chances are, it'll put off a large portion of a potential male audience. But if the... product in question is shown in either a 'neutral' or even 'boy friendly' way, it's more open to a larger audience. Girls, generally, won't mind it and boys will be more open to liking it. I'm not saying this is right, but it's the way things are.
But this is why I'm not keen on the new international logo, or the bright pink cover for the first volume of the manga re-prints. I just think that if 'they' want "S.M" to be a success this time around, they should be trying to cover all bases with potential audiences. Although the show may have originally
been aimed at a young, predominantly female audience, over the years the fanbase has grown and is mixed, both age wise and gender wise. And there is plenty that can appeal to boys in "Sailor Moon." For all the cutesy elements, the unicorn, the pink and sparkly stuff, you have the darker moments (on screen character deaths, plenty of action, occasionally creepy looking monsters, a main cast of girls in ultra-short mini-skirts...). It's actually a fairly balanced show, if you look past the exterior.
Anyways, rant over, haha!
