omg ever since I doodled this I’ve had sailor nico moon stuck in my head all day….and I felt the need to draw everyone else haha

take most of these assignments with a grain of salt lol I mainly just wanted to draw them in these outfits I didn’t really have a reason for these haha though now that I look at them they kind of make sense (umi is serious and seemingly cold but is a big sweetie, hanayo loves being online/using tech n tracking idols/getting info etc, kotori has a famous alter ego n is very much one of the pillars of the group, and honoka tries to be tough and support everyone and tries not to show her inner suffering etc)

I guess it would’ve made more sense to make rin one of the cats but idk…I can just imagine a smug nozokitty giving nico advice n whenever nico needs help or is in trouble nozokitty is just like “HMMM let me consult the cards” while nico is like struggling in the bg with a fight haha

that and idk nozoeli luna and artemis is just….too good to pass up it’s almost too perfect haha plus I think rin would be a good school friend for nico :3c cheering her up and making her realize the good she’s fighting for etc

and ofc….tuxedo maki…..tall and beautiful and smug, sweeping the serious sailor nico moon right off her feet and constantly worrying over her cause she’s just so tiny…I love it;;

There’s a lot happening here in these frames, and it’s kind of exquisite, the places we go. COME LET’S TAKE A TOUR.

Our first stop is Haruka, who just puts it all out on the table. Like I said a couple posts ago, she’s not into playing games really (when she seems to be, it’s not a game so much as “I HAVE GIANT FEELINGS AND NO MEANS TO DEAL WITH THEM”). So when Minako’s trying to act like she’s digging into Haruka’s deepest darkest psyche with her questions about loneliness and ordinary happiness, Haruka’s response is basically “Do YOU?”

Which isn’t too terribly surprising. Depending on the details (and precisely how far up her ass her head is at the time), Haruka does have a knack for figuring people out.

It helps, too, when Minako is being as subtle as brick to the head. 

Which brings us to our next stop: MINAKO’S SHOCK AND WONDERMENT

It’s hilarious because while I do give Haruka some credit for insight here, YOU’RE STILL THE FUCKING BRICK MINAKO. You may think Minako is being sarcastic here, but I truly don’t think so. I believe her surprise that Haruka just cut right to the heart of it all is completely genuine, AND THAT IS FANTASTIC.

For as much as I love to talk up Ten Steps Ahead Minako (and I do, I believe in her utterly), the fact remains that she’s also incredibly young, as well as incredibly inexperienced, despite her experience. She’s also distressed right now and going through some shit, and I think she got so absorbed in playing her game with Haruka, she forgot that she was showing her entire hand in the process.

SHE’S JUST SO FLOORED THAT SOMEONE WAS ON TO HER

In one quick move, Haruka’s turned it all around on Minako, and she was entirely unprepared for it. She lies (of course she lies), but she’s too stunned to sell it. She can’t even look Haruka in the eye as she does it. (Wonderfully contrasted by how earlier she spent an entire conversation cheerfully lying to Kid Volleyball’s face.)

Which brings us to the final stop on our tour, and that’s the expression Haruka has in the bottom cap. There’s such warmth and fondness in that moment. I think it’s more than just solidarity, too. Yeah Haruka DOES know about sacrificing happiness and feeling lonely and isolated because of those choices. She gets where Minako is coming from, even if she couldn’t possibly guess right now just HOW closely their experiences align.

That’s part of it though. That Minako can innocently ask these questions, that the full breadth of her worries and concerns would be “I have to study for high school entrance exams and don’t have time for dating right now, WOE MY ORDINARY HAPPINESS HOW BITTER IS MY SACRIFICE”. That’s exactly the shit Haruka is fighting for, willing to kill for. So that bright, lively, wonderful girls like MInako can worry about school tests and dating.

The other part, I think, is just Haruka happy in this moment that she can help. SHE can help. Her, Haruka, not Sailor Uranus. She doesn’t have to kill anything or fight anyone. She doesn’t have to be a soldier. She just has to be a compassionate shoulder and an understanding voice and she can make a difference.

I hope I will live long enough to see a Sailor Moon live-action movie.

In which Rei cannot stop being Rei for even three seconds and in which Minako asks a question that you know she has asked Rei and will continue to ask Rei on a semi-daily basis for the rest of their very very very long lives.

Saw a thread on Reddit about me wearing kumacrafts ’ Sailor Moon necklaces on the show and they wanted to ask me if I’m gonna design a SM-themed line!

YES.
THIS HAS BEEN AN IDEA FOR QUITE SOME TIME ♥

I have loads of sketches/graphic ideas compiled over the last year that are SM-specific, but I’ve been saving money and gathering resources so I can follow through with a lot of other projects on my plate. But this is definitely something I want to do :)



Sailor Moon Lives On :)

Today I was babysitting my two sisters (ages 4 and 5). We had just finished our breakfast and I was just about to put on Disney Junior when the youngest one came pouncing- and I mean pouncing- in screaming, “How dare you turn on Mickey Mouse instead of Sail Moon! In the name of the moon, I shall punish you!”
Shocked by this I sat there staring at her while the other proceeded to keep yelling, “Jupiter thunder” at the top of her lungs. It amazed me how after watching a couple episodes last week could take such a great hold on them.
They sat for hours watching season 1, giggling at the old dub Usagi aka Serena and claiming characters they wanted to grow up to be like.
Even though there is no such thing as a real transformation brooch or pen (Somebody should seriously make one) I remembered how much courage Sailor Moon gave me back when I was younger. A role model who I swore to help defend love and justice with. Watching the two goof balls acting the same way I noticed even to today Sailor Moon will live on and teach everybody a few minor lessons.
