“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

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*

Small Soldier: Unmei no Deai

October 6th, 2013 || By Lisa

Small Soldier Unmei no Deai

Finally scanned in and uploaded is the douga art book Small Soldier: Unmei no Deai from the doujinshi group Hyper Graphicers. Like previous books that I scanned in from Hyper Graphicers, this is a doujinshi (self-published) book from the animators of Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon. It features douga and genga art work from the Sailor Moon anime. This is Volume 2 out of the four-book collection, and was published in May 1996. Unlike it’s subsequent releases (Lunatic Soldier and Selenity’s Moon), this book is MUCH harder to find and is worth more in monetary value.

Sailor Moon La Reconquista Program BookSailor Moon La Reconquista Program

I finally got my hands on a copy of the Sailor Moon "La Reconquista" Program Book and scanned it in. La Reconquista is the Sailor Moon musical for 2013, and features an all-female cast. The program (pamphlet) book for the musical features full-colored high-quality images of the cast members in costume, and even has three new Sailor Moon manga images from the goddess, Takeuchi Naoko. Please enjoy the scans!

The Best Sailor Moon Doujinshi Post

August 27th, 2013 || By Lisa

I consider myself a pretty hardcore Sailor Moon doujinshi collector. Always on the look-out for amazing new Sailor Moon doujinshi on the market, and buying them up as I go. The reason why I love doujinshi so much, is because they are always unexpected. The Sailor Moon fandom have some really great story-tellers and artists. Some are so incredibly good, they can make you forget that you are reading a doujinshi. I have been lucky to come across quite a few of those delicately written fan comics. These three I have scanned below, are definitely among my favorites. If there are any Sailor Moon doujinshi that you should bug your favorite scanlators to take on, these would be it.

Yume no Tsuzuki by Tsuki Kioku"Yume no Tsuzuki" by Tsuki Kioku

"Yume no Tsuzuki" by the talented Hana Ame (from the circle Tsuki Kioku) was the doujinshi that turned me into a Helios x Chibi-Usa fan. The art work in the doujinshi is drop-dead gorgeous, and is definitely reminiscent of the Sailor Moon anime style. The storyline takes place in the future of Crystal Tokyo, when Chibi-Usa is a teenager and is the new generation of Sailor Moon. She is the leader of the Sailor Quartet. The doujinshi tells how a teenage Chibi-Usa is re-introduced to Helios again. Its very romantic, and brings up some pretty interesting points that can definitely happen in the real Sailor Moon storyline. What fascinated me about this doujinshi, was that Hana Ame did such a wonderful job of creating this future generation. The world she created felt REAL. Adding on Hana Ame’s beautiful art style, this doujinshi is simply amazing.

Lady in the Tower by Studio Canopus"Lady in the Tower" by Studio Canopus

If you are new to collecting Sailor Moon doujinshi, many collectors would immediately recommend anything by the talented circle Studio Canopus, headed by artist Yamada Mario. Doujinshi by Studio Canopus are mostly about the relationship between Tenoh Haruka and Kaioh Michiru. Yamada Mario is very good at narrating the emotions and circumstances surrounding Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune’s destiny. His art work for the doujinshi he publishes are also extremely beautiful and detailed, which make items from Studio Canopus very sought after. One of the most popular and well known doujinshi in the Sailor Moon community is "Lady in the Tower" (also known as "Tou no Naka no Himegimi"). This fan comic is told from Elza Gray’s point of view, about the time when Michiru first meets Haruka. Once again, this is a doujinshi that is told so well, that it feels REAL; Like it could really be part of the Sailor Moon storyline. The beautiful art work definitely helps wrap your mind around the setting. This is a must-read for Sailor Moon doujinshi fans. "Lady in the Tower" was released in several different volumes, so I scanned in all the different covers for this doujinshi. The cover art work are all stunning.

Earth Wind 2 by Pale Lilac"Earth Wind 2" by Pale Lilac

This last one I’m posting up, is a doujinshi by the production assistant of the goddess herself, Takeuchi Naoko. Her name is Ohmori Madoka and she publishes her doujinshi under the circle name Pale Lilac. Ohmori Madoka’s art work is extremely similar to Takeuchi Naoko’s manga style. Because of this, doujinshi by Pale Lilac are highly sought after, and are often expensive because they are rare. Pale Lilac published a set of short doujinshi titled "Earth Wind," consisting of four volumes. The first volume can often be found in stores like Mandarake, but the other three books are very hard to find. I scanned in "Earth Wind 2" by Pale Lilac. The art work inside is beautiful and very nostalgic because it is so similar to Takeuchi Naoko’s style. The storyline is a bit silly but in a good way. And of course, there are the sexy stuff too. *cough* I think fans will overall enjoy this doujinshi. Some of the characters are written to be very “out of character,” but it makes the doujinshi funny in a cute way.

Complete Sailor Moon 3″ Inch CD Singles

May 1st, 2013 || By Lisa

YAY! I finally finished collecting all the Sailor Moon 3″ inch CD singles. I don’t know why, but I have always thought the 3″ inch CDs to be really cute looking. Plus, there are images printed on many of them, that are exclusive to only the CD singles. I went ahead and scanned them all in. There are only thirty-three singles to collect, and they aren’t that expensive (similar to Sailor Moon trading card prices). Rakuten sell these for pretty cheap. So it was relatively easy to finish this collection, which is a nice feeling. Enjoy the scans everyone!
