Lovely Blog Award!



Medieval Otaku recently honored me with a nomination for the One Lovely Blog Award! For that, I’m grateful. So the rules are (from Medieval Otaku’s post):

  • You must thank person who nominated you and include a link to their blog
  • You must list the rules and display the award
  • You must add 7 facts about yourself
  • You must nominate 15 other bloggers

With that out of the way, let me get into some facts.




  1. I think the first ever anime I really got into was Sailor Moon, back in the day when it ran heavily edited on Cartoon Network. Yeah, I know, I’m a dork.
  2. I have Asperger’s and depression, which I talked about in my old blog. Suffice to say, it’s been a rough time dealing with both, but I’m getting through OK.
  3. Terry Pratchett is one of my favorite authors. He will be missed.
  4. I haven’t been posting as often as I once had; that’s due to depression, which also explains why I have a new blog (I deleted my old one).
  5. I enjoy playing games such as Munchkin and Chrononauts.
  6. I’m a big cinema buff; some of my current posts deal with early cinema.
  7. Currently, I’m looking for a job.


Well, that’s all for now! On to the blog nominations; I don’t know that many people, so I’ll name who I can.


  1. Illogical Zen
  2. LitaKino Anime Corner
  3. Anime Girls NYC

Sailor Moon remains one of the most iconic anime series, because of its timeless nature as a mahou shoujo series – there were certainly magical girls before it (such as Mahou Tsukai Sally/Sally the Witch), but Sailor Moon really helped codify and popularize the trends within the genre (such as the Power Rangers-esque team dynamic and the use of specialized attacks unique to each member of the team). For Sailor Moon Crystal, the most recent show, it provides a reboot of the franchise and a 21st-century invigoration; anime diversified greatly after the 1990s, after all, and Sailor Moon now sees a reboot during the new millennium.
