A question that's probably been asked to death, but after all this time, I thought maybe the answers would have changed.

What are the good retail stores to find the new/relatively new Sailor Moon merchandise? I know F.Y.E. carries a lot of it. Do they have the plushies? I know Hot Topic has shirts. B&N has the manga.

Any other retail stores common in the U.S. where the merchandise can be found? Note that I'm looking for stores you can walk in, not online stores.
25th-Aug-2014 03:21 pm - Further Plushie Dilemmas
Sorry to make another post so soon, but as I figure probably the big Chibiusa plush is out of my reach, I suppose I should focus on the ones much easier to get. I can always get a second plush later if it turns out I have some amazing stroke of luck with the big one. ;)

But I'm having a hard time deciding between Great Eastern and Bandai's new plushies. I don't really like how disproportionate they both are, but it looks better with Chibiusa than it would with an older character.

I kind of like Bandai's expression better, which is a surprise to me since I usually don't care for Bandai expressions. I suppose on Chibiusa it's fine, since my main complaint with Bandai is that everyone looks too young.

But I kind of like Great Eastern's hair better, even though it's not as accurate a shade. It looks rather amazingly soft. I don't like, however, that the hair clip things look like they're just decals.

So does anyone own one or both of these plushies and can give further recommendation for which they think is better? Also, are either of them available in retail stores like F.Y.E.? It's always nice to see in person before buying.

I love Chibiusa more than is probably healthy and I've long wanted to get a plush. Problem is, the plush that caught my eye more than any other was one I saw just once, cruising late-night on eBay, and have never seen again, so it's very likely it's way too expensive for my blood. I longed to buy it at the time, but of course I only saw it when I didn't have the money for it, and this was several years ago.

But just to at least finally have the mystery solved so I won't be going bonkers wondering ... it's a large plush, I want to say at least a foot and a half to two feet. (Part of me wants to stay 3 feet, but I can't fully believe it was really that big!) When I saw it, it was new in plastic, but I don't know if that's the standard way it always came.

Does anyone know of a Chibiusa plush that fits that description? Man, I wish there was a Sailor Moon website that archived merchandise pictures, like Sonic Gear does for Sonic the Hedgehog....

Also, as I adore Nephrite/Naru, I'm wondering if there's any decent doujinshis with them I could look out for? Preferably ones with plot and not PWP. ;)

4th-Aug-2014 11:35 pm - My nits...picked
Okay, first couple of episodes I kind of liked that the anime had a lot of manga like images, they're thrown at you in a fashion similar to the manga too, bang, the image like turning the page to find a full page image. Unfortunately my original concerns about low framerate seem to be bearing out. And then there's the hair, I mean the amount of hair in Usagi's bangs is too damn high. People have brought up the alien head shape, and now they put this mound of hair on top of it like a scoop of ice cream. And finally, it seems like there's not as much BGM, to me. Okay, so much for picking nits. I'm actually really happy with the series overall. I'm glad that it's following the manga. There will be departures, hopefully nothing as abrupt as say, killing - - - - - from some uncurable disease, for instance (like PGSM). We have been told to expect some changes. But more side stories? Pretty sure they won't have time for that. I think we will be devided on the same old manga/anime lines on Crystal, but that's OK I like both!

So nobody here is talking about Sailor Moon Crystal now that it's out. Why? Come on guys, what do you think? Love it? Hate it? Indifferent?

I'm not that crazy about the way the eyes are being drawn; they don't seem to have the same sparks of life as the original anime's eyes had. But otherwise, I'm pretty happy with it so far. And I'll be even happier if they keep the Four Kings all around like in the live-action version and show their backstories, like there and in the manga. And I wish that for once they wouldn't have to die and stay dead/turn into crystals/etc.!
