  1. 200 Plus Artists Reanimated an Episode of Sailor Moon Shot for Shot, and Now You Can Watch the Whole Thing

    Transform me into a gorgeous animator!

    For the better part of a year, animators labored to reproduce an episode of Sailor Moon, with each person taking a single shot (though some of them more than one), and now the fruits of their efforts are finally available to watch!

  7. Welcome to Sailor Moon, the Newbie Recap: Episodes 1 and 2

    Be nice to cats.

    Good day, and welcome to our Sailor Moon newbie recaps! Just for a change of pace, I, Susana, will be your resident newbie, and not our Newbie Recap Veteran (not an oxymoron) Rebecca. Over the next few weeks, I'll be watching and recapping two episodes a week from the show's original 1992 run, because I am a child of the '80s who never actually watched Sailor Moon, except once, alone, on late night Toonami, at my aunt's house in California where they had Cartoon Network.

  10. Changing the Face of Women in Anime: The Importance of Ugliness

    Essay

    Since the “girl power” wave of the 90s and early 2000s, many media-makers stateside have been much better about including diverse female characters in media directed toward a younger audience. But while Sailor Moon was one of the forerunners of this well-intentioned movement, much of the material from Japan which has been licensed for release in the States is marketed toward boys or men, and magical girls have fallen out of popular favor (recent reboots notwithstanding). Needless to say, when there are female characters in this kind of media, they are often a love interest, and they often fall into one of a handful of anime stereotypes.
