Sailor Moon Art of Fukano Youichi

February 2nd, 2015 || By Lisa

Senshi no Tsue by Fukano YouichiWhen fans of Sailor Moon think of art work from the anime, they think of the names: Tadano Kazuko, Hasegawa Shinya, or Ikuko Itoh. Many fans are familiar with the art work of Fukano Youichi but don’t realize it. This brilliant man illustrated many images of Sailor Moon which ended up on CD covers, toy boxes, Sera Myu pamphlets, and more. His illustrations were everywhere but many fans didn’t know they were drawn by him.

Fukano Youichi is very active in the recent years on Twitter under the username of @hoypoykoy. He has also been active in releasing many new artworks in the Sailor Moon doujinshi community, these last three years. Though they were released in extremely limited numbers and are hard to find, I took the time to hunt down each doujinshi piece. Not only do you get to see Fukano Youichi’s version of Eternal Sailor Moon (Fukano Moon), but also his new art style for the Outer Senshi.

"Senshi no Tsue" by Fukano Youichi

"Senshi no Tsue" is a doujinshi book published by Fukano Youichi in early 2012 at the Wonder Parlour Cafe in Japan. It was extremely limited in numbers and is very hard to find. In the book, Fukano Youichi discusses his work on Sailor Moon during the 90′s. He also drew little quick sketches of the senshi in maid outfits. I think "Senshi no Tsue" is a book Sailor Moon fans should definitely hire Miss Dream to translate. If anyone starts raising funds to do so, please contact me: I’ll throw in $20. Enjoy the scans everyone!

“Secret” Sailor Moon Books

April 14th, 2014 || By Lisa

Sailor Moon SuperS Himitsu AlbumBeing a fan of Sailor Moon for over 20 years now, I feel like I’ve seen almost all the merchandise that came from the anime and manga. However, I was fairly surprised to learn three years ago, that Sailor Moon had some "secret" books that wasn’t really common knowledge. The books I’m referring to, are the "himitsu" books published by Kodansha for the Sailor Moon anime. Not many people know about these two books, but they are mass produced and aren’t really that rare.

"Himitsu" means secret, so its definitely amusing that not many fans know about these two books’ existance. Here is the reason why so few people know about these volumes: It is common knowledge to fans that Kodansha published short hard-cover childrens’ books during Sailor Moon’s run on TV. These hard-cover books are made of board, and have no more than a few pages summarizing the storyline of the anime. Some fans collect these hard-cover books, but most fans do not because they are made to be simplified for pre-school-aged kids.

“Final Sailor” by Tadano Kazuko

March 12th, 2014 || By Lisa

Final Sailor by Tadano KazukoHello! Just scanned in "Final Sailor," an awesome genga art book, published by Tadano Kazuko. This lovely lady was a character designer and animation director for Sailor Moon Season 1 and Season 2. She was a very important part of Sailor Moon’s anime production, so its pretty damn cool that Tadano Kazuko decided to self-publish a genga art book, featuring her work on the show. This genga book presents many concepts that were used and not used in the series. She even drew a few exclusive images of the Sailor Senshi, just for the publication of "Final Sailor." Her updated drawing style on the Sailor Senshi is definitely one of the best things about this doujinshi. Please enjoy the scans!

“Earth Wind” Doujinshi by Pale Lilac

November 12th, 2013 || By Lisa

Earth Wind by Pale Lilac

Yes! Finally sat my butt down and finished scanning the "Earth Wind" doujinshi series by the talented Pale Lilac. I just added in "Earth Wind 3" and "Earth Wind 4" to the Doujinshi Gallery, so its all there. One thing that I absolutely love about doujinshi from Pale Lilac (Ohmori Madoka), is that you get to see the improvement of her artwork. Ohmori Madoka, who was a production assistant for Takeuchi Naoko, published the first volume of "Earth Wind" in 1997. By the time she completed "Earth Wind 4" in late 2000, her art work improved dramatically. There are some beautiful pages in the later volumes of this series. I hope you guys enjoyed "Earth Wind" as much as I did. I will be scanning Pale Lilac’s other Sailor Moon doujinshi in the future!

Electro World by LEGO!"Electro World" by LEGO!

I am going to start scanning doujinshi by the circle LEGO!, beginning with "Electro World" There have been tons of requests by fans of Three Lights to scan in doujinshi by this circle, because Nakagawa Waka from LEGO! draws bishounen beautifully. Basically saying, the Three Lights look really hot in all of LEGO!’s pages. LEGO! was actually already a really popular circle with bishounen anime fans, because of published doujinshi work featuring Uta no Prince-sama and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. All of Nakagawa Waka’s work is extremely high-quality and professional, so its no wonder why this circle instantly became a hot commodity with Sailor Moon doujinshi fans. Please enjoy the scans! I will scan in more work by LEGO! in the future. Hopefully Nakagawa Waka will continue to draw Sailor Moon doujinshi. *fingers crossed*
