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…
It’s been a week since our last Fierce Fangirl Friday, and yes, I’m still fangirling about Sailor Moon. I’m just calling it my new lifestyle now – a constant state of fangirling about Sailor Moon, Sailor Scouts, adorable kitties, and of course, Tuxedo Mask. I’m stuck, gals and guys, and I DON’T EVEN CARE.
So, what has happened since the last time I fangirled about Sailor Moon? I sent two nights in a Sailor Moon manga spiral and knocked out five volumes (until I disastrously ran out of them since my second boxed set had yet to arrive) AND I WAS LEFT IN A SERIOUS STATE OF D:
It was my birthday this week as well, and my lovely parents indulged my newfound state of eternal Moon fangirling and bought me a lovely dress, socks, and t-shirt of my new obsession (oh, Hot Topic, how I love thee). I’m very much trying to convince myself that no, it is not acceptable nor practical to wear them all at the same time. BUT THEY ARE JUST SO CUTE. AND NOW I REALLY NEED A LUNA PURSE TO MATCH.
Oh, lastly but certainly not least – by the grace of the sailor gods, I HAVE FOUND A WEBSITE TO WATCH THE NEW SAILOR MOON ANIME. THAT’S RIGHT – I CAN WATCH ALL OF THE EPICNESS OF MYSTERIOUS MEN IN MASKS, CRAZY EVIL QUEENS, SOMEWHAT QUESTIONABLE FATHER/DAUGHTER RELATIONSHIPS, AND AMAZINGLY LONG FIGHT SCENES BECAUSE LITERALLY EVERYONE HAS A LONG CATCHPHRASE.
BUT I CAN SEE MY BABIES. FOR FREE. *forever screaming*
*stops screaming so she can hurry up and finish this post so she can actually have time to go watch an episode or two*
Apparently, it’s really hard to actually get the Americanized version from the 90s, but the ones that they are producing now (the Crystal version and the one from a few years ago reboot) are much more original manga – which is still epic. They aren’t “Serena” and “Darien” here, but if you’re looking for the glorious Sailor Moon in action, these are the shows for you. I’ve watched about three so far, and I have so many heart eyes.
If you are interested, here is the website (I’m not sure if it’s good for international audiences, but it is good for America for sure) – it does require you to watch a few ads, but it has subbed and dubbed versions of the two different animes.
ALSO…my second boxed set has just arrived and a new spiral is about to begin. ❤
Update: if you remember from a while back, I posted about how much I loved Sense8 and how devastated I was it was canceled, but just this week, it was announced that Netflix will be reviving it for a two hour finale that will answer and wrap everything up. I AM BACK TO CRYING BECAUSE THIS IS JUST AMAZING. SO MANY HAPPY TEARS. I CAN HAVE RESOLUTION. I CAN SEE WHAT WILL MY BELOVED WOLFIE WILL BECOME. OMG. THIS IS ONE FABULOUS FIERCE FANGIRL FRIDAY (so many f’s there).
Okay, now I’m done.
