Fierce Fangirl Fridays are put on by the wonderful and lovely Jackie @ Too Much of a Booknerd. If you’re not following her already, seriously, go do it, because she’s amazing. Now, what is Fierce Fangirl Fridays? Basically, it’s where you fangirl/boy over anything – that’s right, each week you pick a different thing you’re fangirling about the moment and JUST RUN FREE WITH THE FEELS. Only rule? Just pingback to her post here! It’s so easy that it hurts. 😄
This week I will be fangirling about…
Sailor Moon was my childhoodddddddddddd. I don’t remember how old I was when I first discovered it, but it was on one of the channels when I was kid. AND I WAS SO IN LOVE. And when I accidentally found some Barbie-like dolls of them? Well, I was sooooo sold forever on the Sailor Scouts. Although apparently I wasn’t into poor Tuxedo Mask (I apparently didn’t grasp the concept of a swoon or ship as a kid).
Anyway, for YA Summer Reads Bingo, one of the choices was to read a graphic novel and I bent the words a little bit, and decided to read a manga instead – a copy of Sailor Moon I grabbed after getting hit by a bout of nostalgia during a Book Outlet shopping trip.
AND NOW I AM A MESS. LITERALLY A MESS. I CAN’T STOP THINKING ABOUT THIS SERIES. I DIDN’T EVEN SPELL ANYTHING IN THAT FIRST SENTENCE CORRECTLY BECAUSE I WAS SO EXCITED BY THIS.
I want to read the rest of the volumes. I want to rewatch the shows. I want to buy all the accessories (there are some fiercely adorable Luna purses out there) and clothes that exist (thank you, Hot Topic). I want to just bask in the glory that is Sailor Moon.
So, immediately, that night after I read them…I may or may not have gotten the two box set of the rest of the mangas. o.o I do have a birthday coming up, so I mean, it’s a gift, right? It totally was necessary and epic BUT OMG, I JUST CAN’T HANDLE IT. SAILOR MOON IS EPIC. SAILOR MARS IS EPIC. LUNA IS EPIC. THERE IS GIRL POWER AND A CUTE SHIP AND SAILOR MOON WON’T STOP CRYING AND LITERALLY SHE IS ME IF I WAS A SUPERHERO AND I CAN’T DEAL. I HAVE NO BEEN REDUCED TO ALL CAPS AND I JUST WANT TO CRY BECAUSE MY BOXED SET HASN’T ARRIVED AND I CLEARLY HAVE A LOT ON THE TBR BUT I WILL TOTALLY BE HOLED UP IN A CORNER FOR LIKE 24 HOURS STRAIGHT TRYING TO READ THE ENTIRE 12 VOLUMES THE MOMENT I GET IT.
I have finally convinced myself that all caps is not the way to live and now turned them off. But wowsies, gals and guys, I’ve officially reverted back to childhood between Disney Princesses and Sailor Moon. Welp. I just need the Barbie and Bratz dolls to complete this insanity.
What are you fangirling/fanboying over this week? Are you/were you a Sailor Moon fan? What from your childhood still brings on the feels? Let’s discuss in the comments below!
