Hello! This is Mangaka-chan. I'm a fanartist/fanwriter by night and a scientist by day. I mostly post about Sailor Moon and Princess Tutu, as well as any fan work I make for my two favorite anime series.

Many thanks to Miss Yunie from elysiansgarden for the custom layout. <3

Do you own any Sailor Moon merchandise?

Yes, I do! In terms of newer merchandise, I have the complete set of Kodansha manga, as well as a Chibi Moon plush. I own some merchandise released in the 90’s, like a Sailor Moon cushion, the DiC PC game (which I never really figured out how to play :p), the Materials Collection artbook, and the Best Song Collection CD. I also have some non-official merchandise, like doujinshis, artbooks, and posters that I’ve accumulated over the years.

It’s done! This is the first time I’ve done paper art and I underestimated how much work this was going to be. XD;; I probably should’ve done something simpler, but I just couldn’t help it! I don’t know if I’m going to make more paper art, but if I do I’ll probably do a Princess Tutu one next. :)

I told my mom today that I was working on a Sailor Moon paper art project and she asks me, “You still like Sailor Moon? Aren’t you too old to be playing with paper dolls? You should make something besides Sailor Moon.”


Still working on the Sailor Moon paper art project, and with this piece I think my fangirl qualification had just increased by 10 fold. >_>

Suddenly got the urge to try making Sailor Moon paper art yesterday. I know this looks really weird right now, but hopefully if and when I’m done it’ll look awesome. ;D

Went to a club with some coworkers tonight. I spent the first hour watching ESPN and the second hour reading the BBC on my phone. Yeah.

Today was my first day at work, and although all I did was do paperwork and getting my ID and parking permit ready, I am exhausted!


Compared to Usagi and Mamoru’s Miracle Romance, I much more prefer Helios and Chibi Usa’s future relationship because their story has so much potential. Under what circumstances will they meet again? What sorts of trials and hardships will they have to go through? Their love story could be just as epic as a Miracle Romance, if not more so, for the simple reason that it has yet to be told.

All of my yeses! Plus there’s also a strong hint of forbidden romance like in Serenity and Endymion’s story, though i think in this case the challenges these two face are somewhat different from the challenges Serenity and Endymion faced during the Silver Millennium. Chibi Usa and Helios come from very different circumstances and places. Not only will distance, duty, and status be a problem for them, heck, even time is an obstacle!

Which do you like better: Manga!Helios, or Anime!Helios? The same thing with Chibiusa, Manga!Chibiusa or Anime!Chibiusa?

For this I’m going to break the “like” distinction into character development and character appearance.

I like manga!Helios’ design more, mostly because I never liked the look of the horn and the manga is more consistent on when it shows up (i.e. when Helios is under Nehellenia’s curse) and when it doesn’t (i.e. before and after the Dead Moon threat). However, I like the character development of anime!Helios more so than manga!Helios. I think the anime had and took the time to fleshed out his personality, while the manga focused more on developing the main cast and kind of neglected the supporting characters.

With Chibi Usa, I prefer her manga incarnation in terms of both personality and character design. I feel like her physical growth (i.e. growing taller) is more pronounced in the manga, and in terms of character growth I feel like her growth to becoming a leader in her own right is more complete at the end of the manga than at the end of the anime. Also, we get to see her in her own distinct princess gown and her eternal form, something that we never saw in the anime.

I just found out today that a good friend of mine had gotten engaged to her boyfriend. She told me the news in person while we were sitting at the local Mitsuwa food court and I was about to dig into a plate of curry tonkatsu. XD;;

Also, instead of an engagement ring, her boyfriend-who-is-now-her-fiance got her a very nice DSLR camera. Personally I think the camera is a much better present than a ring, which can get lost or stolen, plus it’s far more practical and useful. :3
