It’s about to get very pink up in heah. And I’m not talking about punky chicks singing self-absorbed lyrics, neither.
I never understood gender demographics, even as a kid. If it was colorful, I liked it. If it was different…well, sometimes I liked it. Sailor Moon aired when I was in junior high, and like everybody else in my class, I was hooked — Imagine my surprise when I mentioned on the bus (in embarrassment) that I liked the show, only to have my mean-ass peers start talking about how much they liked it, too. Look at the slews of merchandise and you’ll know how big a hit this gaudy cartoon was.
This is what remains of my Sailor Moon collection. Foreign goodies all.
No, I never used this stocking on Christmas. Well, not for myself. I think we used it as the dog’s stocking one year.
Cutest towel holder ever. EVER.
It should be noted Jupiter was my favorite. I used to have more Jupiter stuff — this gallery is really only half of what I used to own. I dunno what happened to the rest of it.
Adorable Sailor Stars ink stamps, each with three different stamps that attach on the base of their respective figures. The one on the far right is the cutest of the bunch.
Oodles o’ keychains. I used to have a chest packed with anime keychains I got from various hobby shops.
These are known as Pachi Pachi figures — you can swap their “hero” uniforms for the tackiest goddamned outfits you ever saw. Jupiter really got the short end of the stick here, dressing like a carnie from Willy Wonka’s failed theme park project.
Tux is my favorite of the lot. They don’t make many toys of him.
Lastly, the ever-popular Petit Soldier figures by Bandai. I have every “inner senshi”, pictured here, and later I managed to get my hands on Uranus and Neptune in separate boxes.
Uranus strikes a rather posh pose, while Neptune…isn’t quite sure what she should be doing.
Mars is my favorite from this line because of her sexy swimsuit model posture. I guess she was determined not to look as silly as the other girls post-transformation.
