Seeing as the New England weather has finally begun to feel like spring, it’s high time for hanging out with friends, soaking up the sun, and studying for those darn finals.
Or, we could just stay in and watch anime.
While I was hardly impressed by last winter’s lineup – with the exception of ERASED, of course – the current season definitely has a few shows worth looking into. I have a strong preference for anime featuring strong female protagonists, so the following list of three may seem limited to the Magical Girl genre. This is an issue I’ve had with Japan’s latest releases since, well, the beginning of their rise in popularity in the U.S. But nonetheless, Aggressive Retsuko, Flying Witch, and the third season of Sailor Moon Crystal have plenty of action and comedy to offer.
You know those rare instances where you don’t want something to end? These are my exact, blunt feelings having finishing the most recent installment of Sailor Moon Crystal. Could this be an episode with good pacing, character development, and animation? Shock. So brace yourselves for this week’s Simulcast Corner. It is gonna be real, trust me.
Welcome back to Simulcast Corner. This week, we’re gonna travel back in our time traveling, moon kitty-approved mobiles and discover the secrets of Neo-Crystal Tokyo. Yes, it’s time again for another Sailor Moon Crystal adventure. Will our senshi discover who Chibiusa’s parents are? Maybe even find out the meaning of life? Let’s discover all this and more for ourselves! So grab your Cutie Moon Rods, and let’s get this Moon show on the road.
Welcome back to Simulcast Corner. This week, we’re gonna return via a door to the 30th Century. Yeah, you know what that means – it’s time for another Sailor Moon Crystal review. Will it be yet another boring installment? Will this actually bring on the feels? At this point, who knows. But lets board our senshi-decorated Delorean and go back to the future, I guess.
Let’s get down to business, to defeat…. the Rabbit!? Yes, it is that time again to visit the ultra dramatic and somewhat hilarious antics of Sailor Moon Crystal, where we guess based on the episode title which senshi will get some focus, and then be stolen, and ultimately ignored, at that point in the series. But maybe something different is in store for everyone’s favorite 90’s magical girl? Or maybe we’re just in for another snoozer of an episode…. let’s take a look.
Ah, Toei. I think it is about time you admit something that is becoming painfully clear: You love the heck out of Sailor Jupiter. Toei, baby, it’s okay to tell us the truth. In fact, many of us love the Thunder Senshi just as much as you do, but at this point, your favoritism is becomingly incredibly, almost laughably obvious.
2014 has gone, but the moon sure hasn’t. Welcome back to a more productive and opinionated Simulcast Corner, where this time we’ll travel back to the Sailor Moon Crystal universe and explore what the heck is happening–’cause trust me, it’s a lot. If you’ve been watching the series since my last review, you’ll know that our Senshi are raging war with the Dark Moon peeps, big time! So grab your moon specters, and prepare for some battles, ’cause it’s time for more Moon-approved action.
Fan fiction is a thing, and it was something I never took too seriously, except on rare occasions. One such situation is related to Sailor Moon (duh), and it involves a set of characters that by most standards were never huge fan favorites. They had their moments of admiration, but they were no senshi or Ms. Moon. But with this weekend’s past episode of Sailor Moon Crystal, we finally get to see a fandom wish of quite a few come true. So prepare your heart for this installment of Simulcast Corner …. it’s gonna be good.
