Anonymous said: what do you think about the new sailor moon crystal?
An excellent question, anon, because I was just going to make a post concerning my next podcast episode—which will be all about the Sailor Moon revival!
Yup, it’s been a year since my last podcast episode about Sailor Moon, and now the internet is even more ablaze with Sailor Moon fever, thanks to Viz Media’s re-release announcement and Sailor Moon CrystalFINALLY airing after a long wait. So my guest and I (possibly 2 guests!)—who’ve all been Sailor Moon fans since the 90s—will be discussing our thoughts about Viz’s new translation so far, the recent new dub clips they’ve released, and of course, the first few episodes of Sailor Moon Crystal.
And of course, I’d love for listeners to send us any questions or Sailor Moonstories of their own they might want to share with us! If you have any questions, comments, or stories you want us to answer or talk about on the episode, feel free to message me here, reblog with your comments, or email them directly at AnimeNostalgiaPodcast@gmail.com! Any questions relating to original Sailor Moon, Sailor Moon Crystal, or even the new musicals are more than welcome! Or do you have any nostalgic stories of Sailor Moonyou want to share? Are you watching the new or old series with your kids now? Let me know! (And don’t feel like you have to be 100% positive—if you have issues with the new show, Viz’s new translations, their new dub…that’s ok! You can ask questions about that, too!)
We’ll probably be recording the new ep in the next couple of weeks, so get those messages and emails to me ASAP! ✨

If you haven’t seen it yet, the Moon Animate Make-up project is finally finished! Over 200 artists came together to re-animate an episode of the 90s DiC dub version of Sailor Moon. It’s amazing to see so many different styles of animation in a single video. Even if you’re not a fan of the old DiC dub, it’s pretty fun to watch, check it out!
eff-blog said: Dororo and Gordian are not actually taking pledges for DVDs, but for the streaming of the first 13 episodes for now. So no need to contribute $30, even a small $5 will do plenty good! They might get DVDs later if the streams are funded quickly enough.
A short, ReView episode this time around! What is a “ReView” episode, you might ask? Well, it’s my highly-clever (ok not really) title for episodes where I go back and watch an older title I haven’t seen in a long time, and see if what I remember (and what my opinions on it) are still the same now that time’s gone by and I’m a little older. This time, a title so forgotten that it never even made it onto DVD: the SanctuaryOVA.
News! - Anime Sols has added 3 new titles to their streaming/crowdfunding site! The titles include Dororo (1969), The Warrior Gordian (1979), and the new Kindachi Returns (a sequel to the 90s TV series). All 3 are now taking pledges for DVD releases, so if they interest you, please consider donating! Dororo is another series from Osamu Tezuka, while Gordian is mecha series, and Kindachi Returns is a detective drama. Check them out!
