PostSubject: Hello! Hello! HELLO!!   2nd May 2015, 7:25 am


  • I have no idea what title I should give to my intro post so I just wrote whatever popped in my head..




Hi! I'm new here! Please say hello to me.  Or maybe not and that's ok as well.


Anyways, I have always been visiting this site since I can remember but I never had the urge to make an account. I guess that's just the way I roll. I spy around forums as an anonymous guest and if I find the need to say something or to just join, then I will. I feel like it's the right time for me to join but I'll leave my unimportant reason for later.

So I'm a male and I'm 19 years old. Oh, and I come from the planet Earth. Yes, I'm a human being. Sadly, I'm not a guardian nor the representative of the planet like Endymion/Mamoru so I'm just a normal, not-really-special, human being. 

As for my history with Sailor Moon, it has always been with my childhood memories. I thought it would stay as that but I still remember the time I had some sort of reconnection with it. It was the early days of 2007 and we finally had our first internet at home. While surfing through Youtube, I thought to myself "hey what about that show about girls wearing really short skirts and they save the day? What was the name of that show again? **SAILER MOON?** *types in the search bar with the same spelling* "Oh! It's SAILOR MOON. Haha!"

And that's how my story begins. 


My views and opinions with Sailor Moon has drastically changed since that very day but one thing has and will never change: the magic still lives within me and I will likely held that little spark tightly for as long as I can. Over the years, revelations and insights rush by my side like a wind and the more flawed or perfect this piece becomes, the more I want to keep it for eternity.

My favorite character is Sailor Venus with a very obvious reason: she is my fictional and childhood crush. My initial impression with her is that she is this beautiful and graceful lady but of course the anime and the manga gave me a clearer view of her. Especially with the manga. I fell for her even more by the time I started reading the manga. My second favorite is Chiba Mamoru. I'd like to choose that name because his human side is what made me like him in the first place. While watching the original anime, I never cared about him. I guess he had his moments but for the most part, he's the dude throwing deus-ex-machina-roses to villains and gives an eloquent speech to Sailor Moon to save the day. As with Venus for me, the manga gave me a totally different side of him. His story and his character, I felt a familiar feeling with him. It's like his character resonated with me. I can't explain much but one thing I can honestly say is that I aspire to be like him. Of course I can't look exactly like him but his achievements pushed me to improve as a person. Just like him, I'm an introverted shy person who mostly keeps his feelings to himself and struggles to throw away his self doubts. My third and fourth is Mars and Moon with almost the same reason with the other two (especially with Usagi. My goodness, she is so likeable and more well rounded as a character in the manga!)

Given the paragrach above, you can see how much I've stated the manga and that is the biggest reason why I decided to join this forum. You see, I just started reading the manga last October of 2014. I read one act per day from that point on and it was an exhilerating ride! I read volumes one to five from October to November, six to ten from January to February, and now eleven to twelve this May! Over the years, I always hear many fans comparing the original anime to the manga and I do have the interest to read but never had the perfect chance or dedication to do so. So what pushed me to read the manga? It was all thanks to Crystal and my strong desire to finally read the Stars arc. Crystal was supposed to be the more faithful adaption and though it is such a flawed series, it gave me more interest to read the original source. What more when I hear fans talk about the vast differences of Stars of the anime and manga? The distate of Cj (Train to Galaxy Cauldron blog?) when it comes to Crystal and his past articles about the manga really helped as well.   Isnt't she a member here as well? Tell her to say hi! I read her blog a lot of tines snd though I still generally like Crystal regardless of it being crappy, his viscious reviews is such an entertainment. 


YAY!! I'M FINALLY READING THE STARS ARC! You have no idea how excited and devestated I am. I'm scared and thrilled with the last story of Sailor Moon. I was supposed to read it last April but volume twelve was out of stock from Amazon jp and I had to wait two to four weeks for it to arrive so I decided to postpone to May. I reread the previous volumes several times already due to that delay but I ain't complainin'. Oh, and not to mention the HUGE customs tax and shipping fee I paid.  But enough of that. THE STARS ARC!!! Lol! I read the first act yeaterday and it left me speechless and lifeless for a long moment. I already know the huge amount of spoilers with this story arc due to Youtube comments but I was prepared for that first death. Goodbye, my second favorite character.  Oh, and Usagi's state after that made it even more depressing and intense. Gah! I should stop writing and read the second act right now. As with my schedule, one act per day and it's already 10 PM of May 2.  So I should go. Bye!


NOTES:
I meant to write yesterday but my wait for my account activation forced me to do it today. 
Sorry for the unnecessary long intro, I got too excited. 
I don't usually talk like this in real life. 
I made my avatar and signature two days ago as some sort of teaser and preparation for my reading of Stars arc. It's nothing professional or even a beautiful edit but I like it. I shared it on my Instagram and even used it as mu wallpaper on my iPad. 
I've been listening non-stop to Galaxia's locket melody while writing this and will probably do the same thing while reading the Stars arc. It's so intense and melancholic.  Is it really titled "Golden Queen Galaxia (Orgel Version)?" Does anyone know any Sailor Moon CD I can buy with this track included aside from the Memorial Music Box? I can't seem to find it in any of the Stars soundtrack albums and the music box is way beyond my money limit as of this moment. 
My dream is to make a third anime adaption of Sailor Moon by the time its 30th anniversary arrives and it will rock!
I also want to write another two story arcs for Sailor Moon. One of them focusing on Sailor Cosmos. Does anyone have the contct number of Naoko Takeuchi so I can persuade her to work with me?

Hello! Now, I don't feel like the only one who's a newbie, ha!

Glad to see another member, especially one who's so adamant about Sailor Moon. I can tell by your enthusiasm! I know you're reading the manga right now, but have you ever seen the musicals or PGSM? They're awesome and you should really check them out!

This forum is pretty awesome and there's TONS of things to do. There's a roleplay section, trading section, guilds, clubs, etc. We also have a good fun community, everyone's so nice here. I'm sure you'll find something you enjoy on here! Very Happy

Hello and welcome to GC! Very Happy I'm Vivien! Smile



First off, props to this long text! Very Happy As PrincesseNee already mentioned, if you didn't get the chance to watch the musicals or PGSM yet, I really recommend to see them! Both adaptations differ in some parts from the original story which makes them to its own, unique story! Smile

Also, do you have a favorite villain? Smile

Since you're lurking on GC for quite a while, I guess you already see how the wind blows. Nonetheless, if you still have any questions, I'd recommend to sign up for a mentor here Smile

According to your wish to write two more arcs, I'd assume you are a writer? If so, we have a Writers section in the Creativity Corner where you can share your works. Or if you want to play these stories with other people, then you should really check the RP section out! Smile

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it here! See you around the boards! Smile

PS. Just a little note - unfortunately your signature is too big for GC's standards. Please read the Signature and Avatar rules, so that you can adjust your signature to the allowed size! Smile

Hey, and welcome to the forums! I'm so glad you decided to join! Very Happy

It's always great to meet someone who is so passionate about Sailor Moon! I also started out with the anime, and I am currently reading through the manga. Have you heard of PGSM or SeraMyu? If not, I definitely think you should check those versions out! 

Who's your favorite villain in the series? 

I hope you enjoy your time with us here on GC, and if you ever have any questions, please feel free to shoot me a message! Very Happy

Miss Moon Rose already pmed me regarding my signature and I already took care of it. And yes, my dream is to become a writer. Aside from already working on my own novel, I'm also formulating the structure of my "new Sailor Moon story arc." They're not past the well defined world building or even a solid plot so I'm keeping them in my mind for a while. But I'll be sure to share it once I've gone past the brainstorming and put them into words.   I'd like to join the creativity corner as aside from writing, I draw a LOT of Sailor Moon sketches since last year but I'll think about it. I'm still a rookie when it comes to drawing so my strokes aren't well crafted. But I'll keep striving to improve.  I'm currently drawing Eternal Sailor Moon. That drawing in the first act of Stars. I'm also planning to draw Galaxia and Cosmos and if they do work out or come as decent, then I'll be sure to share them. 



Also, yeah I've been hearing a lot about the musicals and live action adaptions. I don't want to offend anyone but my first reactions to them is that they're quite chesy and cringe-worthy. But then again, I'd like to be more open-minded and I shouldn't put judges without experiencing them at first hand. By the time I'm done with Stars, I'll be mourning and feeling lifeless for the rest of the month (that's what happened last November and February). Once I've gone past that stage, I'll be sure to check them out. Haha! For now, the manga is my priority. Heck, I missed a lot of the episodes of Crystal due to my hectic rereading and reading schedule of the manga.

Oh yeah. As of this moment, Galaxia is my favorite villain. I'm still in Act 51 and she still hasn't fully arrived but I already know more than enough of her manga counterpart to understand her character (thank you reading the manga section of this forum for the last few months). But even with that, her anime counterpart is still amazing. I'll be anticipating her backstory in the manga. Her locket melody really suits her well. 



Sidenote: Act 51!! That scene with Mercury and Jupiter still haunts me. This story is starting to feel like a massacre of some sort.

Ohh, you also are an artist? Then I really recommend to check the Creativity Corner out Very Happy
And don't worry about still being a rookie. Everyone starts on a shoestring Smile

To be honest, I thought the same about the Myus before I started watching them. But once you started, you'll love it! Very Happy PGSM has a good reputation here as well - so they can't be that bad Very Happy Razz

My boyfriend and I had the same reaction too. Both of us were saying how we were never going to watch the whole thing because it looked cheesy. One day we were on Youtube looking for clips showing the costumes used in the musical just to see what the villains looked like. The moment we started the video, we got mesmerized. A couple hours later, we had watched through an entire musical and got hooked. Like Princess Moon, I'd definitely recommend giving it a shot if you have nothing else to watch. Wink I don't normally like musicals, but these ones were done pretty well--even if they seem a bit cheesy. xD

BTW, Welcome to the forums! I'm Andi!  Do you have a deviantart? I also like to draw! Very Happy
