Latest Sailor Moon Doujinshi Additions

Sunday, March 11th, 2018

Its been a while since I’ve added Sailor Moon doujinshi to the gallery, so much apologies! I think you’ll enjoy the three I’ve selected for this update though. There is Yamada Mario’s latest "Times" by my favorite circle, Studio Canopus. Its a nice short pamphlet with plenty of adorable Sailor Uranus & Sailor Neptune illustrations.

I’ve also added this beautifully drawn doujinshi called "Yume no Tamago" by the very talented circle Bebop//Dog//Duo. Its a short little story about Fisheye, Amazon Trio, Helios, and Usagi. I think you’ll enjoy it because its beautiful and super cute!

Last but not least, I’ve added the self-published "Otome no Policy" book by Obata Kimiharu. For those of you who aren’t too familiar with this author, Obata Kimiharu was a key animator for Sailor Moon and Sailor Moon R. He published this short book as a tribute to Sailor Moon for the anime’s 20th Anniversary. It features some very beautiful and intricate illustrations by Obata-san, which is a real treat to see him revisit this period of anime in his life. Please enjoy the scans!

The Best Sailor Moon Doujinshi Post

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

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.

Sailor Moon R TV Magazine Deluxe Volume 1Happy New Year everyone! Starting this year off with scans of Kodansha’s Sailor Moon R TV Magazine Deluxe Volume 1 book. The periodical is full of iconic pictures from the Sailor Moon series, and even have a few images that aren’t commonly seen on the internet. It covers the end of Sailor Moon Season One and the first arc of Sailor Moon Season Two, which introduces the character of Ali, En, and the mysterious Tsuki-Kage no Knight. It briefly introduces the Black Moon Clan, before the book ends. After this volume, I have one more Kodansha Magazine Deluxe to scan!

Moonlight Legend by Studio Canopus"Moonlight Legend" by Studio Canopus

I also scanned in a rather rare doujinshi by the popular circle, Studio Canopus. Its called "Moonlight Legend" and is actually about Sailor Moon Musical, rather than Haruka & Michiru; which is what Studio Canopus is famous for. "Moonlight Legend" is an anthology, but I only scanned in the few short plots that was done by Yamada Mario. Content left unscanned were written scripts by other artists. Anyhow, enjoy the update everyone!
