Sailor Moon

  1. Sailor Moon Newbie Recap: Episodes 77 & 78

    Man, I’m really gonna miss that breakup subplot—said no one ever.

    Juuban’s most famous power couple is back together, everyone’s health is falling apart, and Esmeraude continues to follow the Villain’s Handbook to the very letter. Admittedly not my favorite pair of episodes—while the central story of R is much stronger than that of the first season, I haven’t found a ton of R’s character episodes all that memorable, and that’s pretty much what we’re getting this week. Also, since when has Minako been Usagi 2.0?

  2. Sailor Moon Newbie Recap: Episodes 75 & 76

    A wild Time Lord appears!

    The story moves forward a bit and then settles into its next mini-aRc as new (surprisingly likeable) villains take the stage and Chibiusa’s mysterious helper at last introduces herself. Also, cake! And really, what’s not to love about that?

  3. Sailor Moon Newbie Recap: Episodes 73 & 74

    Everything’s comin’ up Rubeus!

    While Episode 73 was pretty much just me shouting at Chibusa for 25 minutes, I kinda loved Episode 74, partly because we got us some fast-acting karma, but mostly because it did a good job of showing how much Usagi has matured since the series began—heck, it showed how much she’s matured since the end of Season 1, even.

  5. Cosplaying While Black Is Actually A Far More Positive Experience Than You Might Think

    I’m a black cosplayer and…no one cares.

    Okay, so, I know we’ve all read the horror stories, all with the same refrain: “Everyone HATES ME AS A BLACK COSPLAYER.”Well, here’s the thing about those articles - they make you not want to cosplay when you have a certain amount of melanin in your skin. I mean, what’s the point, right? Someone’s going to sling racial slurs your way or you’ll be catcalled off the internet.

  6. Sailor Moon Newbie Recap: Episodes 71 & 72

    Sailor Moon: Encouraging you to quit your crappy job since 1993!

    No week with an Ami episode can ever be a bad week. Throw in some villain redemption and a climax revolving (literally) around a black muthafuggin hole, and we got ourselves a recipe for a good old-fashioned Sailor Moon Romp.

  9. 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.

  13. 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.

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

  15. 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!

  17. 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!)
