  1. Things We Saw Today: Harley Anna and Poison Elsa Serve Up Some Awesome Frozen/Gotham City Cosplay

    Plants never bothered me anyway.

    Cosplayers Tesla Isley and Atari Girl totally pick up on the sisterly camaraderie between Gotham City villains Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, and capture that in this creative Frozen/Gotham mash-up cosplay that gives us Harley Anna and Poison Elsa. The plants never bothered her anyway.

  3. Looking At Female Characters in Anime and Manga Through a Western Feminist Lens

    Well, here it goes.

    The portrayal of female characters in anime and manga is a complex discussion, not only because of the various tropes that exist but also because of the cultural perspectives through which they must be filtered and digested. While the subject of female characters in anime and manga is not as frequently written about here at The Mary Sue, it nonetheless has become a topic of discussion not only by the Japanese consumers but those like myself.

  7. Sailor Moon Newbie Recap: Episodes 67 & 68

    It’s a wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey kind of day in the Mooniverse.

    Okay, so I take back my earlier rant about how we’d have to wait 20 episodes to find out what’s going on with Chibiusa. The creative team didn’t string us along for very long at all, and we pretty much have all the gaps filled in at this point. Now all that’s left is for Usagi to take down the baddies, save the future, and rescue the Queen. Who is, um… herself. This probably won’t cause any gaping rifts in the space-time continuum. Probably.

  8. There Will Never Be a New Sailor Moon Video Game in the U.S. and Here’s Why

    It seems a Bandai Namco representative by the name of Tak Miyazoe made some remarks last weekend at a press event suggesting there is sudden interest in a new Sailor Moon video game.

  9. Sailor Moon Newbie Recap: Episodes 65 & 66

    Better late than never, no?

    It was a fun week, with some subtle plot bombs and slightly varied character dynamics—all good things, really—but in the interest of getting this out before the end of the week (I’m typing this during the, like, three-hour window between parties and chores), I’m going to unleash my little-used superpower: EXTREME BREVITY. Prepare yourself, Kakarot!

  11. Sailor Moon Newbie Recap: Episodes 63 & 64

    Secrets may not make friends, but they sure do stretch out the episode count.

    I don’t know what it is about this arc that’s making me so impatient, but when Chibiusa didn’t just tell us everything that was going on at the end of this week, I wanted to jump through the screen and throw Beanie Ballz at her. (What? I have a small collection, so it makes sense to throw those specifically!)

  16. Why FIGHT! Is An Important Zine For Women In Gaming And Comics

    I grew up on Sailor Moon, so my love for tough female characters started at a very young age. The last zine project I curated was Moon Power, which was a Sailor Moon fanzine, and after the success of that project I decided I wanted to do a new zine that focused on female characters and had original content from artists. I’ve always loved the character design and art direction behind video games such as Street Fighter, Darkstalkers, Guilty Gear, Soul Calibur and others.

  17. Sailor Moon Newbie Recap: Episodes 59 & 60

    And so as one Sailor Moon aRc ends, another begins…

    And no, we do NOT have time for a retrospective! There was FAR too much happening this week. So I’ll cover my reactions as we go, with my usual blend of exaggeration and irreverence. But don’t let my cheekiness fool you: I quite enjoyed both episodes this week, and I’m looking forward to telling you kids all about it.

  18. Sailor Moon Newbie Recap: Episodes 57 & 58

    The plots (and tree roots) thicken!

    The Makai Tree is glowing an unpleasant purple color and making the kind of noises that, if your car was making those noises, you’d take it to an exorcist, ‘cause hell if the mechanic is gonna know what to do.

    Aliens are people too!

    These two episodes encapsulate pretty much everything I love about Sailor Moon, using supernatural events to develop characters and provide commentary on love, friendship, and gender roles. And it doesn’t hurt that they were darn amusing, too.

  20. Sailor Moon Newbie Recap: Episodes 53 & 54

    Poor, poor Ami.

    Sometimes I worry that Sailor Moon will run out of episodic plot lines - then I remember that Cheers ran for 11 years, and they never had any aliens to battle, and I know we'll be okay.
