Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon .com is getting a new host. The switch will take place this week 12/10 -12/15. These things rarely happen without a hitch so if you have a hard time finding me rest assured I’m not going anywhere… Well actually I am going somewhere, to a new host but I’m not going away! Stay tuned, soon I will announce… -The Return Of Cyber Moonie Monday- (slightly delayed edition).
A new batch of Sailor Moon cards have arrived including the rare Sailor Moon SuperS set two Jumbo Banpresto cards. These are sometimes referred to as “White Frame” Jumbo Banprestos and they are beautiful! And I have most of the Sailor Moon “R” series 1 & 2 Jumbo Banprestos. Also included in this update are a smaller collection of Sailormoon Pull Pack cards as well as Grafitti, Carddass, Amada Sailor Moon PGSM Bromides and some Sailor Moon Marusho Heart Ribbon cards.
I still have a good selection of Sailor Moon Nissui “S” cards left from the last huge lot, but the foil cards are getting grabbed up. I also have a bunch of bargain store junk up on eBay this month, but… I have a couple of real jems ending VERY soon so have a look.
There’s a new link added to the menu at http://bishoujosenshisailormoon.com
You will find my small collection of Sailor Moon card YouTube Videos HERE. Please be kind, I am just starting out and have no editing skills short of adding a soundtrack so these are all one takes. I hope to improve and enlarge this part of the site so check back every month or so to see how I’m doing. Likes and subscriptions would be nice too.
The New Sailor Moon Cards are here, Nissui, Tanzaku, Movic and quite a few others. In this newest update I have added nearly all of the Sailor Moon “S” Nissui cards from both set 1 and set 2. These cards are all in great condition and include many hard to find foils from the “S” season. I have one set of five Floral Scented cards from Movic/Seika Note. And you will also see new cards of all types added across the entire list.
I have added many items to My Ebay listings this week (ending 7/21/13). Many “smalls” start at $0.99

Sorry for the delay I know some of you have been asking for this since I got back from Japan.
The Talisman Cafe is in a small residential/industrial neighborhood in Osaka, just over the river from our hotel in Nishinakajima so we walked over the Shin-Mido-Suji bridge to get there. We do a lot of walking in Japan, you miss so many of the small delights if you don’t get out and walk the neighborhoods. As we approached there were bikes parked by the door (immediately images of Rei and Mina sliding to a stop on their bikes flash through my mind). Across the street is a park with a small baseball diamond and some playground equipment. Across corner from that, a round underpass that looks like it came right out of the manga.
When we walked in the staff, two young ladies, seemed surprised to see foreigners, they were very friendly they showed us to our table and gave us some menus, the menu says “please do not take pictures” so I have respected their wishes. They asked how long we have been in Japan and and where we lived. They offered me a business card and a point card and I returned mine in true Japanese fashion and that was a hoot for me because I had never had the opportunity for that traditional card exchange and bow before.
All around the room you notice Sailor Moon touches but its nicely done, it doesn’t jump out at you. Down low under the bar at knee level is a shelf with a few sailor moon toys and figures on it, I assume they are there for kids to play with because how could they be ignored, right in their faces like that. By the door there is a magazine rack with Sailor Moon books available to look at. Around the room are a few framed pieces of art and each table has a small Sailor Moon themed centerpiece. When we arrived there were two other customers, the two young women sat chatting and looking through the Tokyo Vivo magazine with the sailor moon art, they were hoarding a stack of art books on their table but that’s fine I guess, I’ve got them at home. It was a bit hard to see them all dogeared though. Sailor Moon music was playing and they seemed to be specialising in covers while we were there because I never heard so many Sailor Moon songs by other artists in a row.
I ordered a Lunatic blend and Chocobanana pancake, everyone ordered some thing different so we could see the various Sailor Moon themes, my late had Luna carved in the foam, They have a couple of small lunch items but mostly sodas, coffee, deserts and cake just the way Usagi would want it. The prices were quite reasonable, and all profesionally hand crafted to the last detail, Oyshi! As I was leaving I did take some pictures outside including the menu plaque.
There are so many wonderful things to do in Japan its hard to pick your favorites, and after all its just a visit to a local cafe right, but I know I had a big smile on my face as we left and walked towards Umeda and if you are lucky enough to find yourself in Osaka you will be glad you visited the Talisman Cafe
In memory of Miyuki today I post this vid by littlenoelyan. Miyuki singing Rainbow Notes from Pitchi Pitchi Pitch.
Osabu-P has just confirmed that the popular musical series based on the hit manga (known as “Sera Myu”) will return with its sixteenth installation this September! Cast, staff, and further details will be released tomorrow on the official Sailor Moon website when tickets will also go on pre-sale.

So this is our last night in Tokyo our hotel is in the Hamamatsucho Area it’s the train station closest to Azabu Juban. It’s a sad thing to be leaving Tokyo, when you spend a couple of weeks here you develop a feel for it, and get pretty good at going where you want to go and finding the right restaurants /clubs etc. basicly figuring out how to live in Tokyo. And then it’s time to go home, I wouldn’t mind if this was my home mind you, It’s a wonderful country and full of friendly, polite people. There are so many things happening in the city, the museums, temples, shrines, street life, the various reigional hapenings for the lollies, fruits, rockers. Spontaneous music shows, rainging from bagpipes in Yoyogi Park, to random girl bands playing just outside the train station. not to mention the jazz singer on the lower observitory at Tokyo Tower tonight. Its just an incredible place, like no other in the world. For those of you who have been patiently waiting for me to return so I could complete our trades. I promise you I will take care of that promptly because ACen is in two weeks but that’s another post,and speaking of other posts I will have one coming up on my visit to the Sailor Moon cafe, Ja….Ne!.
I went to the Tamashii Nations display of the S.H.Figuarts Sailor Moon in Akihabara today. I was there when the gates went up at 12 noon. It was a lot of fun to see new Sailor Moon merchandise being offered. Of course I do realize there have been new American releases, but this is the first big figure announcement, and a sign of things to come.
The display featured three examples of the figure in different poses, several life-size posters, and the promo video on loop. The pictures I’m going to post are the best I could manage with my cellphone today. If you could please turn your computer monitors 90 degrees to make up for my lack of smart phone picture editing skills. Thank you. Oh,and thank you to the random volunteer who held up my card in front of the giant mural, awesome job!
