Gaming and Sailor Moon? While looking at PlayAsia, most games that perk my interests are otome, indie, and rhythm games. Plus they still had the Sailor Cosmos fanbook.

I'm waiting if eBay screwed me over once again. I got one item that wasn't what I ordered.

Anyways, the 90s anime had puzzle like games, mainly games to attract girls playing the Famicon. Each had well detailed sprites and even had voice lines. Also, Sailor Moon Another Story RPG was the bank of games.

You also got fighting games, which used to be in online touraments, until Toei arrived and stopped it.

There was this Sailor V game by fans on iOS, only to it being taken down. Could explain the downfall of an official iOS game too because women who buys 1600$USD phone definitely wants to play a Bejeweled/Candy Crush clone on said phone.

With their other IPs, like Precure, which is geared towards kids and uses the joy-cons in various positions. One Piece had their own Dynasty Warriors games and a feature length fully scaled RPG for the PS5.

It sucks Toei likes to shut down fan made games. Sonic Mania was embraced by SEGA to create said pixelated games.

I known with PS/Switch Online libraries of older games can at least bring back classic games. Look at Magical Drop VI.

If Toei wants Sailor Moon reboot to continue making revenue, they might be in discussions with the creator in hope companies can make money market for their IPs.

But no. Sailor Moon is geared towards the insanely rich elite. Seriously, the crystal encrusted boots that are sizes 6 to 8. Can anyone even afford those boots?

Sailor Moon is dead. All we can do go to cons and take picks of cosplays dressed as characters from that series, cause even panels of Sailor Moon aren't happening anytime soon.

I still need to pick up Vol. 4 and Vol. 5 of the NT collection next month. Just a mini rant.

I think the franchise may've become a "toy" of Takeuchi nowadays, on which the maximization of profit isn't her foremost concern, at least not as important as whether she can have fun, such as experimenting this or that w/ it, among others - that's how a godlike figure (as she's professed to be in a recent interview) would be thinking & gods don't need to be concerned w/ money like mortals. :)

I deeply admire Naoko Takeuchi and kinda agree that the franchise became a “toy” for her.

But she is not a God.

I am pretty sure she is a human being like the rest of us. Plus, nobody know what is happening in her private life.

The Chanel catalog with Naoko Takeuchi’s illustrations is worth about $250 USD (new).
The price of an individual item doesn't necessarily imply anything in the overall P&L statement. :wink:

Of course she's not a god, lol nor has she said anything that she is - she's just said she's a godlike figure & all in an interview. :wink:

CD Japan is basically Yes Asia or Play Asia with more features you have more options in shipping there.

Seeing YesAsia site, but I don't have a DVD Region 2 player. They have a lot of stuff that's not on BluRays. I hadn't seen any of the musicals. It sucks the loved franchise might stay doormat again, because they literally have nothing to showcase for it.

I thought the manga ending in Dreams/SuperS arc was a way to tie down the series. Then Stars came to f*** around and bring out characters with very litte background that will only to make Usagi seem like a godlike figure who ends up in marriage.

Least Cat Cosplay had a mini wedding with their cats and using a Usagi x Mamoru cake topper.

It came just 10 minutes ago. Package was tough.

EDIT: As looking through the book, there is only one small screenshot of the Cosmos Guardian in the whole entire book. I'm probably going to do some doodles of the characters for my iPad. Plus they had pics of the Sleepwear x Sanrio crossover and their lottery.

I really need self control with my spending habits.

First piece of Cosmos fanart, Sailor Galaxia. When I was introduced to her, I thought she is the perfect sailor troll. The Nehelina episodes in Stars was interesting, then it went downhill with MOTD Phages and the Three StarLights fighting with other senshi.

Yeah, their leather type sailor suit was geared towards kids. I still want to owe a Sailor Moon Eternal doll, but they're very pricey. I guess I can look for a Q Posket figure.

You can make your own Eternal doll. Just customize it. Plus, it’s a fun project.
I'm good with my hands with art, making food, and daddle writing for a bit...

But I am clueless on sewing.

Two people I can go to custom dolls, Minature Corture from Hong Kong.

And this person from Spain.

You can learn how to sew… it shouldn’t be difficult… and then you can customize your dolls and even open your own shop.

:kero:

So both her & Takeuchi are trollish in that part of the story. lol Anyway, she always feels like a troll to me. :zoid:

90s anime vs Manga? My opinion I was introduce by DiC version. Still fuming with my late mom to not pick up a Prince Diamond doll in The Bay.

I was introduced to the French manga and thought Hakura was a tomboy, hence they called her Frederic. But wanting to get Sailor Moon anime, I bought CDs and VHS of SuperS in Chinese Quarters/ChinaTown. Sadly, you can't find anime swag in said place anymore. Hence heading to Plaza St. Hubert to Chez Rhox and Otaku Planete.

I want the NT collection cause it'll be it's a proper translation of the English versions to have. When I'm bored, I tend to draw my OCs as parts from of the manga.

This pic was from Usagi being carried by Prince Demande.

People hated my art because when I draw a character via reference, it looks exactly as if someone was tracing it.

In other words, I guess I prefer the manga than the 90s anime, despite my fave season was SuperS. I hadn't had time to read them currently because of gaming and doodling characters in my style.

This is another reference.

So Drachea did this piece as idea of the original movie concept of the SuperS movie.

Which lead to walkouts, a movie heavily focus on kids being forced to sleep forever, and more Chibi Usa spotlight for being a target for enemies. It then brought out a new anime series, Revolutionary Girl Utena.

Now I know SuperS is my fave season. But I can understand the quality Toei was producing is not good during that time. The first six episodes of Stars shown quality, but of course the rest of it is Seiya trying to grind on Usagi, regardless that she has an engagement ring and only sees Seiya as a friend.

The whole Saturn must be awaken to have all the sailor crystals falls flat because of those f***en Starlights. Oh, Pluto and Saturn then get off screened killed by possessed Uranus and Neptune. So much for using Saturn. She was so important to be awaken and I think throughout the entire series, she only appeared in 10+ episodes. Such power of revolution and rebirth./sarcasm

I can see why fans are bitter on how Toei handles Sailor Moon and Naoko wants to cater her art for the rich elite, hence she’s drawing for Vogue.

Drama Thread: Is Mamoru x Usagi relationship the worst?

Sailor Moon Has The Worst Romance?

I'm gonna go take the bite out of this bait article with my opinions.

First Season: Mamoru was the cold heart ass who felt just by saying the right things as Tuxedo Mask to Moon to encourage her to fight onwards. Usagi had Umino crushing over her and she liked Motoki. When the whole princess reveal, Usagi sees his soft teasing and confidence, which makes her worried about him, regardless he became an enemy. Let's not forget Beryl went to war against the Moon Kingdom cause she saw Endymoin kissing Serenity. Such tragedy. As for Rei dating Mamoru? I'm kinda against it, especially when Rei hates the company of boys/men due to her father being a political figure and dropped her to live with her grandfather after her mom died. I think in Japanese society would see Mamoru dating Rei for good publicity and graces for their government. But I can't see them blossom. Onto the second season.

Second Season: People hate this. Yeah, you got two aliens who don't know human customs and are trying to help their tree to strive, hence needing human energy.Of course their curiousity made them like Mamoru and Usagi. They could be great friends. Instead, you see Usagi acting very possessive of Mamoru with Ann flirtations. It was irritating, then she came. Pink menace that falls from the sky and kisses her dad. Welcome to 101 Electra Complex folks. Then we get a mysterious figure demanding Mamoru to be a d*ck towards Usagi in order to save her. Finally later on in the season, they stopped that. Oh yeah, we got Demande the gentleman nice guy who probably j*** off to a hologram of Neo Queen Serentity. If there was AliExpress during the time this series was made, you know Demande has a Neo Queen Serenity dakimakura to sleep with. I'm not sorry of calling Demande a d*ck. Spoiler Alert: Demande/Diamond is voiced by Matt Mercer, host of Critical Role and voice of Cassidy. I swear, I might be thinking there's a ASMR of Mercer's voice acting lines, fangirls will go nuts.

Third Season: We're lesbians. We hinted of Makoto x Ami with one screne. I know my fiance was mistaken for not knowing my birthday, but yeah. Usagi can get hot headed when she assumes Mamoru doesn't cater to her. I know you got new sailors, but holy jesus, they were like the departed Tommy in Power Rangers, being a d*ck to anyone who wanted to help them. The mission was to not get the challice/holy grail into enemies' hands. Then Moon hands said piece to Mistress 9 and it's destroyed. You know, I prefer the ending of Monty Python's Holy Grail movie than the ending of this season. At least cops came and did something. This season rubbed me the wrong way.

Fourth Season: My fave season. You get Moon literally can't breathe moment in order to save Mamoru. But somehow, we decided to move onto b*********. Whatever the directors were snorting when this season was geared towards kids, gimmie that good sh*t.

Fifth Season: Search for your...shut the f*ck up Seiya. I loved the 4-6 episodes of the Nehelenia arc. But the Starlights were leather cladded warriors seeking for their princeness, who's apparently loves Love Live. Hence they becoming idols to seek said princess. Don't change my mind that Princess Kakyuu is a Hatsune Miku fan. Sadly Mamoru had got the axe, so Seiya tried to fill the hole in Usagi's heart. The funeral hadn't started and now you want to bang the widower. Patience is not Seiya's strong suit.

In conclusion, throughout painful pandering, forcing to change markets, self entitlement from the author and Toei is focusing on One Piece, Mamoru x Usagi seem like the sanest pairing throughout said series.

Well, at least they didn't get on Jerry Springer to settle these romantic disputes. Oh wait...


Here, have an update on MissDramu.
