Can I just say that Mars’ top is actually amazing.

I was really poorly yesterday so I made myself feel better with a screencap redraw. Finished it off this morning as a bit of a warm-up. Not entirely happy with it, but it served a purpose!

Screen cap from the lovely Sailor Moon Screencaps, as always.

Sera Myu (セラミュ; abbreviated from the words “Sailor Moon musical” (セーラームーン・ミュージカル) in katakana) refers to the series of Sailor Moon musicals staged in Japan between 1993 and 2005. Many of the productions were based on plotlines taken from the anime and manga, while others were based on original stories. The Myu has had 29 separate productions with over 800 total performances.
Termonology:
Fan Kansha or “FanKan” - A special performance for the fans of the musicals.
Guide Video - Behind-the-scenes footage of the making of the musical, as well as interviews with the cast and Fan Kansha footage.
Omake - Bonus footage that appears on a video, including things such as rehearsal footage.
Kaiteiban - A revised version of a previous musical.
Senshuuraku - The final day of a particular musical. Senshuuraku performances often had more ad libs or jokes, and at the end of the performance, the graduating cast members would be given a special farewell.

Notes 

♡ = a musical I think you should watch if you’re casually interested in Myu
None of the musicals were ever professionally subtitled in English. Every sub is a fan sub so keep that in mind.
Please don’t feel overwhelmed by this list - unless you’re serious about watching every single video release I highly suggest you just ignore “FanKans & Omakes.”
The Third Stage / Dracul Arc doesn’t have any ♡’s because it’s a series so watching them individually wouldn’t make any sense (except maybe Last Dracul Jokyoku because it has some old plot elements) however it’s a really interesting stage with a vampire theme so I do recommend watching the whole thing.
Which brings me to my last note about stages- technically there are only three stages (the first ending at 1998 Eien Densetsu (Kaiteiban), the second at 2004 Kakyuu-Ouhi Kourin and the third of course with 2005 Shin Kaguya Shima Densetsu (Kaiteiban)) but Western fans consider each Moon’s run a stage of it’s own so that’s how I tag and label my posts.

Going by the logic you've presented, are stories like Sleeping Beauty and Snow White (using the Disney versions as an example) wrong because their princes kissed them while they were sleeping?
Anonymous

keyofnik:

Yes.

Like I said, consent doesn’t have a grey area, it’s either given or it isn’t. Both Snow White and Sleeping Beauty are unconscious and cannot give consent. Those princes and those kisses are wrong. More importantly, the creators of those stories — Disney or otherwise — are super wrong for creating, perpetuating, and glamourising the idea that not only is consent not important, but that its absence is a romantic ideal everyone should hope for.

However this doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy those stories or movies.

Judging from some of the messages waiting for me this morning, it seems this could use being specifically said:

It’s okay to like problematic things. Everybody who has enjoyed any form of storytelling or media or entertainment has liked problematic things. EVERYBODY. Nothing is completely perfect.

It’s okay to like problematic things. It’s not okay to pretend things aren’t problematic because you like them.

Once you've seen the Sailor Moon story in all of its incarnations, do you think you would like comparing and ranking how each incarnation handles each story arc? I know it's no easy task, but I think it would be interesting to see the strengths and weaknesses of each version in those arcs.

Oh I’m positive some in-depth comparing and contrasting is coming. No doubt at all!

You know what, I’m just gonna say it now. I think mamoru is just as important to the story as Usagi is. He is the only one that has been around for the whole damn story. Fuck you if you think he’s any less a main character than the inner senshi, and double fuck you if you think the outers are more main characters than he is.
