Is it accurate so far?

*For anyone not familiar just google 'iceberg meme'. Better yet I'll just quote it here. :yoshi:
Iceberg Tiers Parodies are usually images of an iceberg, captioned humorously so as to convey that the tip of the iceberg is the summation of the knowledge of most people, while the much larger submerged part of the iceberg is the sum of all knowledge of a particular topic. These parodies are often used in the context of imageboards like 4chan to ridicule outsiders, but they have also spread to fandoms.

Umino without HER glasses? Sailor Satan? Mermaid panic? Luna, Artemis, and their son aren't cats? Naoko hates Moonlight Densetsu? Just...I...what?!

Is the Sailor Venus curse thingy referring to her being cursed to never find true love for herself? Because I think that's what it is. Hunter x Hunter references in Crystal I can understand. Their creators are married, after all. The two works are sorta like brother and sister. I have Hunter x Hunter in my Watch List on Netflix solely for this reason. It was always there, of course, but I had been putting it off to watch Magical Girl. But now that I'm almost finished watching Cardcaptor Sakura, I will get right around to watching Hunter x Hunter(on Netflix, at least, there's still Star Twinkle Pretty Cure, Tokyo Mew Mew, Princess Tutu...) since it's "Sailor Moon's brother" as I like to call it. And I'm sure the references go both ways, too.

1. I think "Umino without her glasses" might just be a typo.
2. "Sailor Satan" is a misspelling of "Sailor Saturn" that was used in the pamphlets for a couple of the musicals (and probably in other sources as well)
3. "Mermaid Panic" was a series of light novels by Marie Koizumi that Naoko illustrated. Her illustrations show characters that look like Sailor Moon characters (I think Mamoru and Mistress 9?)
4. Luna, Artemis, and her "son" (again, probably just a typo?) aren't cats --- In the manga, they're really aliens from the planet Mau
5. I've never heard of Naoko not liking Moonlight Densetsu.

Just my fan theory but I think Neferpitou might be loosely inspired from Sailor Tin Nyanko. =^_^=

As much as possible I don't want to judge people on not knowing certain information or a different way of interpreting information base on their experience with the show. It's not like there's an exam for these things.

As a fighting game enthusiast I got a simple question from a fan who doesn't play fighting games like why a certain character has different colors like :mako: having purple and yellow color schemes. To anyone who has played so many different fighting games this is common knowledge but to someone who doesn't play fighting games its new to them.

And there are those fighting game purists who barely know the lore of :usagi:. With the recent popularity of the fighting game there's been interest from people who've never watched the anime. Majority of them who do watch wouldn't even know the live action or musicals.

There's many different types of fans from casual or new to die hard know it all's. I'm just glad there's been a resurgence of :usagi: content on Youtube lately so they can shed light to some of the things not familiar or obscure stuff.

As for that iceberg I'm disappointed there's no mention of :artemis:'s Lover, :chibiusa:'s 7th Birthday or sailormoonredone. :booze:
