Finally picked up some Sailor Moon Stuff

Being a male fan, I held back for quite awhile when it came to getting 'anything' Sailor Moon. Most of the shirts just struck me as too much for a guy to sport. But, then again, my favorite color is pink after all...and yes I'm straight :lol:

I finally decided on a few items, one of which was a Luna plush, as she's one of my favorite characters ... at least through the first two seasons. My other two favorites are Sailor Jupiter and SaiIor Venus. I've yet to get through the other 3 seasons. Two of them, as I cannot stand Linda's voice-over of Serena in the English dub..to the point I may watch the Japanese version subbed instead. I wish Terri Hawkes had been able to return for those two seasons instead.

The other 3 items, 2 backpacks and a shirt I'll include links to below. Curious what people think considering I have every intention of making public use of them. I would suggest using the 'open in new tab' function for the link opening. Thanks for your opinions and comments! :)

Can hardly wait till they get here. The longest wait is on the first bag, as it's coming from Italy ... the only place it was available from. I think it has something to do with the comeback SM is making.

The backpack's my favorite item out of the three... nice artwork on it, and the Sailor Moon silhouette on the back is a really nice touch.

That luggage backpack is interesting... I wonder, is that really an official piece of merchandise? I guess it could be, it just seems like a pretty unusual item to be sold as a Sailor Moon product. Then again, on Youtube I've seen commercials from Japan where they're selling everything from socks to sausages, so maybe that isn't so unusual.

The shirt's pretty cool, I like that it's a black shirt instead of something overly colorful. It's just great to see that in the year 2012, many years after Sailor Moon originally came out, there are stores all over the US selling Sailor Moon shirts (in several different designs, too!). On a side note, I wonder who came up with the unusual Sailor Moon logo on there, not that it looks bad or anything, just different.

Now if you don't mind, let me switch to another topic- are you implying that you haven't seen the Japanese version of Sailor Moon? If that's true... then please, PLEASE do yourself a gigantic favor and go watch the Japanese version. I would recommend starting over from the first episode... they censored out and re-wrote soooooooo much and made it so much worse, I can't even begin to explain it.

The editing and re-writing problems became smaller and more tolerable starting with the third season... but as you've noticed, the new voice of Sailor Moon is not a pleasure to listen to.

But anyway, to you or anyone else who hasn't seen the Japanese version, I cannot emphasize enough how much you NEED to see the original version. It's sort of like if you're a huge movie fan, but you've only ever seen the PG-rated edited-for-TV versions of movies, broadcast on TV with commercials inserted... and you're about to go see a movie in a theater for the first time in your life. Except I would say the difference is even more dramatic than that.
