    Any ways the plan after finishing off Sailor Moon is to change directions with what I have of
    Chibi Vampire and then go on to Tenchi. I think if I hadn't been spending so much time reading SM I wouldn't be overly OCD about the whole Stars thing. I have a grand total of 18
    volumes of it: 2 of Mixx' SuperS the 2 Code Name Sailor V plus all 12 of the regular
    Sailor Moon and add the 2 of the Short Stories.So I think next time around I might take a break between. Especially between the arcs as I think that's the reason I'm being all drama queen about the finale. Rolling Eyes Twisted Evil

    Doesn't it mean SM is good? or do you regret it. =^_^=
    Well, the anime version of the Stars is better (entertainment wise) imho, although, less detailed.


    There's this new "Sinking of Japan" the same title (story) as an old movie and it's remake. Btw. Tomino (of gundam fame) appears in the remake.
    So far it's so-so, art isn't great but suffice,
    the scanlation is so noobish, a bit slobby ... and somewhat uninformed .. they still didn't realize the difference between a cicada and a cricket. Duh!

    No,it's nothing like that,I really enjoyed it and look forward to when the
    inevitable DVD/BD Combo Pack of the new anime comes out so I can get it.
    I think really my problems were:
    1.Reading too much spoilers.
    2.Terrible habit of looking at the next volume to see what happens.
    3.Overthinking everything too much.
    4.Getting too much emotionally attached to Ami/Sailor Mercury,my favorite Senshi of all of them.It do happen to me too much I find a female character that I get emotionally attached to and then bad things happen to herNo No No Mad Sad 

    Overall though I did enjoy the chance to finally expierence all of Sailor Moon the way it was meant to be.
    Aside from Ami my other four favorite Senshis were Rei and Minako among the Inners and Michiru and Setsuna among the Outers.

    My favorite villian has to have been Galaxia now.Before I had read the entire thing I would' have said either Nehelenia or Beryl but I think Galaxia was the best of the lot.

    That said I still rank Sailor Moon as my #11 favorite overall and my #2 favorite Magic Girl series after Wedding Peach.

    Yeah, understandable. SM got every character for everyone so it's not surprising if you get to like any.

    This means another WP vs. SM war! Laughing

    Laughing 

    that be fun!
    Though I think that Angel Lily versus Sailor Mercury would be what I would love to see.Two very quiet and very polite and intelligent young
    ladies who rarely get angry.Methinks that it would end with the two of them sitting down and having a cuppa tea with Tokyo Mew Mew's
    Mew Retasu or Mew Minto and Magic Knight Rayearth's Fuu.

    Now Angel Salvia versus Sailor Mars....That could get very VERY
    nasty!

    btw:I'm not saying that either Lily or Mercury can't get pissed off royally,after all there was that one WP episode where Yuri lost it after the school principle caught the girls on a triple date with their boyfriends and even Jama-P was surprised at how pissed she got!
    I really don't think we've seen Ami ever get that pissed off...except when the other girls don't take studying as seriously as she does. Laughing

    Pretty sure Mercury does get pissed from time to time, at least once per arc or so.

    Anyway, one good thing about SM is that despite touching on difficult themes quite often (e.g. regarding genders) it's still accepted without much problems.

    That's because it isn't preachy when it comes down to it. Very Happy 

    Read volume 1 of Short Stories yesterday.Basically broken off into two main sections and a stand alone story.The two main sections were:
    Chibi-usa's Picture Diary and Battle Exams.
    I already read Battle Exams in Mixx' copy of the SuperS
    manga volume 2.The main difference is Mixx using the NA dub names and
    a bit of localization,but the main stories remained intact.

    My three favorites were:Beware of Cavities in which Chibi-usa and
    Usagi along with Mina have to go to the dentist after eating too many sweets without brushing or flossing.Favorite scene:Ami examining Usagi and Chibi-usa's teeth...but really Ami do you really carry a dental probe around with you all the time? Laughing 

    Ami-chan's First Love, yeah I love this one and especially the way that she acts to getting the love letters.It also shows how obsessed she is with getting the best possible scores on tests.I also loved Mina's
    line toward the end: "' Rival equals enemy,'" eh?I think I'll stop trying to improve my grades,then,since I don't wanna be killed by Ami-chan!"
     Laughing 

    Finally the stand alone story Hammer Price Hall.This was another
    Chibi-usa story and involved her two fashionista/cosplaying friends from school and Hotaru.Hotaru was miffed that the other two claim to be
    Chibi-usa's BFFs.The main involved a pawn shop that has a lot of SM
    stuff including Sailor Moon and Sailor Mercury costumes.They even had some figurines of the Senshis(including Neptune,but no Saturn and no
    wonder Hotaru goes and gets possessed...)I think this is in another
    SM reality from the others because they mention the manga in it.

    Overall I enjoyed the first volume and can't wait to get the second one read. cheers

    I finally finished all of Sailor Moon for this time around. Cool 

    Feel like I been living with the characters for a long time now. Laughing 

    Now to something totally different:Chibi-Vampire for the next
    3 weeks and then Tenchi.

    And so on to the first three volumes of Chibi Vampire.Maki and Anju remain my two favorite
    secondary characters,though it is a bit creepy that Anju carries THAT doll around with her all the time(meaning Boogie)and let's not go into her lolita goth look.
    In the anime I remember there was an episode where Maki finally gets a chance to stay over at the
    Maaka house and it was hilarious to see how Karin's mom went to look like June Cleaver aka a normal
    human mom. Laughing

    Claymore chapter 151
    Claire briefed Teresa on the recent events, her gains and many losses. Poor chibi Claire. Teresa isn't happy about her choice to follow her but she's happy for her she "growth" and gains. Teresa defeats Cassandra with ease and is about to face Priscilla.

    Finished what I have of Chibi-Vampire and so now on to what I have of TenchiSmile 

    Vol. 3 of Chibi-Vampire had a special Anju side story.Y'know for
    a 11 year old grade schooler she has to be the creepiest member of the entire Marker/Maaka family,I think part of it is she tends to know more than even her parents and then there's that entire grade school goth/loli
    look.
    That and her favorite doll houses a serial killer's spirit. affraid

    Gundam 「ADVANCE OF Z 刻に抗いし者」第二十四話『Nothing's Gonna Change My Love For You』
    http://dc-dist.dengeki.com/aoz/

    Gundam - Thunderbolt
    Looks like the Gundam franchise is copying the Armored Core franchise.
    It also seems to be a continuation of Ecole du Ciel...

    Gundam - Ecole du ciel
    has already ended. It's kind of left me dissatisfied in the end mostly because it's too soon and kind of open ended.

    Finished Inukami. Took Yoko a long time to admit the truth to Keita. Looks like her dad wasn't found of the idea of his little girl with a human.
    Anyways aside from Yoko my top 3 favorites were: 1.Nadeshiko,2.Tamahone,3.Tayune.
    And now on to Rin-Ne.

    Btw.
    Kimagure Orange Road  Manga Vol.1
    official translation is now available after 30 years....
    https://www.emanga.com/detail?itemid=1472

    Well, I have already read it more than once (can't say how many times Razz )nearly 20 years ago...
    The art is old and classic but the stories...
    All I can say is there's hardly any romance mange that's better other than MI (Maison Ikkoku). It's better than the anime.
    You will regret it not having read it and die of pain!! Laughing

    I should mention that the original japanese KOR is multilingual (japanese, english, spanish, french, german) which I expect to be lost with the official translation. The Deluxe (text) fan translation had retained everything and more. In part I that very interesting. I kind of feel pity for the new fans if it's lost for them.

    Yes.I got into anime around 2001 and KOR was still popular back then.Now it's nearly 30
    years old and since a lot of noobies are in their teens probably won't be so many interested in
    'ancient' series.

    Re-started what I have of Inubaka:Crazy For Dogs. Very Happy Very Happy
    Suguri is such a sweet naive girl and somehow understands dogs like she is one,or Teppei suspects
    she might be.
    Chizuru is one of those characters that takes a bit to take to;after all her first appearance makes one think she's snotty,but when her dog Ricky dies and she decides to adopt Melon she shows her true colors.
    OTOH:Kaneko-sensei turns out to be as much as a air-headed snob in much of the series as she appears at first.

    Hmmm....so around 2009 they made or were in the process of making a live action Inubaka
    movie.Wonder if they ever got through making it.The trailer looked a bit goofy,though they did include the scene where Suguri picks up Noa's doggie poop by hand as well as Chizuru crying in the vetenarian hospital when Ricky dies.
