In The Name Of The Moon, She Has Returned.


The classic shoujo animated series “Sailor Moon” is officially returning this summer with a brand new series called “Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal”. It will debut in July and will be available to stream worldwide on the Niconico website.

The anime is a commemoration of the 20th anniversary for the Sailor Scouts. The team of young heroines led by the ever so popular and clumsy Sailor Moon (Usagi) are back to ridding the world of evil. Producer, Atsutoshi Umezawa, says the series will not be a remake of the preceding anime, but instead be an adaptation of the manga, starting on a blank slate.

Usagi Tsukino is a second-year middle school girl who is a little clumsy and a crybaby, but she is full of energy. One day, she meets Luna, a black cat with a crescent moon on her forehead, and she transforms into Sailor Moon, a sailor-uniformed pretty guardian of love and justice! As a chosen guardian of justice, Usagi seems to have a mission to find the Illusionary Silver Crystal with the other guardians and to protect the princess.Meanwhile, the queen of the Dark Kingdom, Queen Beryl, also sends minions to the town where Usagi lives to obtain the Illusionary Silver Crystal, which has immense power. This causes strange events to unfold….

Can Sailor Moon really find the Illusionary Silver Crystal with the other Sailor guardians, and protect the princess…!?

The director for the series is Munehisa Sakai (best known for One Piece). Yuji Kobayashi ( “Saint Seiya Omeda” and “Smile Precure!”) will take on the scripts, Yukie Sako will be designing the characters, and serving as art directors are Yumi Hosaka and Takashi Kurahashi. The soundtrack for the series will be produced by King Records, featuring Yasuharu Takanashi, and Momoiro Clover Z.

The original anime was five seasons, and the manga ran for 52 chapter. There have also been a few OVAs and movies.

Travel The World { Tag }


Found this tag off Zia’s blog “Bits of Days” and thought it would be appropriate since it wasn’t too long ago since I got back from travelling!

1. Where are you from in the world?

I was born, raised, and still live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

2. Have you been overseas? When/Where?

I’ve been overseas numerous of times. I’ve been to Philippines, Japan, Hong Kong, Brunei, Germany, and Italy.

3. Do you prefer summer or winter? Why?

I prefer to travel to a country when it’s summer. It’s easier to pack lighter, it’s more comfortable to just wear variations of t-shirts and shorts, and it just feels more lively.

4. Summer or winter fashion?

I adore both types of fashion. Love crops and high-waisted shorts in the summer, and tons of layering in the winter. But I don’t like humidity or having to wear a jacket.

5. Where is somewhere you would love to travel too?

I’d love to visit the UK, South Korea, Sweden, France, Switzerland, Hawaii, or Australia.

6. Name your essential makeup items for the beach

When I go to the beach, I intend to swim, and makeup does not last when the waves hit your face. The only thing I would even think to grab is probably a waterproof brow pencil because God knows even the fish in the water would die from fright from my sad brows.

7. Are you currently saving up for a trip?

I’m always saving for a trip.

8. Do you like/dislike traveling?

I absolutely love travelling. I love being submerged in culture – language, food, religion… everything. I’ve been travelling since I was 3.

9. Name a place in the world you would love to shop.

There isn’t a specific place, because I’m an avid shopper. I’m sure I can satisfy my shopping hunger in just about any country.

10. What accent in the world is your favorite to hear?

British and French. Easily.

Episodes: 16
Cast: Honoka Miki, Yuki Furukawa, Yoji Tanaka, Koura Kazumasa, Tomomi Nishimura

It all starts at the Tonan Highschool entrance ceremony. Not-so-smart student, Kotoko Aihara (Honoka Miki) is enchanted by the pretty boy and highest-scoring student, Naoki Irie (Yuki Furukawa).

She falls in love and decides she needs to tell him how she feels through a love letter. Naoki’s rejection to her letter was harsh, “I don’t like dumb women”.

If things can’t get any worse for Kotoko, her house is completely wrecked by a small object falling from the sky. Until her house is rebuilt, Kotoko and her Dad are taken in by her Dad’s friend. Little did she know, the temporary house is also home to Naoki Irie.

How exciting is that? A definite must-watch for the romance comedy junkies! The next is a spoiler, but if you’re interested to read my opinion, continue on!
