Why, a question that can be asked with childlike Innocence, but can also demand, plead and weep, it leaves us bewildered. It’s the currency of philosophers and theologists, perhaps the nature of our existence.

Why is, once asked, past tense. Perhaps the solution is in the present tense, now.  Please Text Now,

Present perfect is formed by combining have/has with the main verb’s past participle form: I have donated. A negation is produced by inserting not after have/has: I have not donated. Questions in present perfect are formulated by starting a sentence with have/has: Has she donated?

Present perfect is used for describing a past action’s effect on the present: He has donated. Now he is sincere. This holds true for events that have just been concluded as well as for events that have not yet occurred.

Here are the brand new 2011 Sailor Moon Italian sticker cards. Last time I promised you the low down on the box make up, so here we go. First off there are 24 prisms and 216 regs. A total of 240 cards! All of them from the first season. Here’s how you want to open a full box of cards! Open the box and remove all stickers in the same order they were packed (50 packs), take 20 off the top, and 20 off the bottom, these 40 packs will contain the entire 240 card set. You now have the 10 unopened packs in the middle to sell, trade or open, if you choose (after you confirmed that no one shuffled your packs, LoL)

And now to the cards, they start on the first episode with cards #1-30, first, Usagi asleep in bed dreaming of her encounter with the spooky staring cat (not quite as spooky as the one staring at you right now), and focusing on that episode until card #30. The set then becomes largely character driven, the next group, #31-43 is devoted to Sailor Moon and her arsenal, 4 nice prisms here. Then #35-54 devoted to Tux. Mercury and her introduction are the next set from #55-90. Followed by #91-126 for Mars and #127- 160 for Jupiter. But then it seems they could not resist the temptation of episode #33 (The Last Sailor Soldier, Venus Comes), or as I like to call it “The Sailor Zoisite episode”, cards #161-174 touch on that before continuing with Venus #175-204. Tux and all the other Senshi get 3 prisms ea. devoted to Attacks and transformations. The rest of the cards deal with dramatic scenes from the latter episodes of season one, and singles of all the bad guys, nice prisms here too.

The last few cards do not depict specifically the final battle,  not really many show stoppers (spoilers). I guess we have to wait for season two? Lets see, 240 per season, could add up to 1,200. That would be the largest set of Sailor Moon cards ever produced, by far!

I usually start a post with “The new Sailor Moon cards are in” referring to my latest arrivals from Japan. But in this case I can say ” The new 2011 Italian Sailor Moon sticker cards are in”. I recently got one box from Italy and the good news is, one box gets you the whole set of 240 stickers. The bad news is it only left me with ten unopened packs (6 stickers ea). So I have a few if you want them. The real news here is the scans, This is just for your information, so you can look them over and decide if you want them. For the most part they are similar shape and design to the original Merlin Italian cards, though there are a lot of fresh images here.  You’ll find the scans   HERE.   You can also see them by clicking an image of the box and pack in my Gallery.  This will open a folder with 16 files, each file is 15 cards. The cards are in order, top to bottom, left to right.
