It’s time for the first new Sailor Moon card post at Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon – Shine Like Justice – V3.0. This update contains 150 or so highly sought after cards from Marusho, Morinaga and other obscure sets.  You will find new  Morinaga “R”  & “S” Plastics, and Sailor Stars foils. You will also find new Marusho Super-Mini Pull Pack Sailor Stars cards and Sailormoon World Coaster Cards. There are also some very exciting adds from the more familiar sets, Hero 2, 4, 5 & 6 regs & prisms, as well as Banpresto SuperS Set 1, regs & prisms and a few Pull Pack, Grafitti & Carddass cards too. These have been added to the cards from the last update, I still have a good selection of Tanzaku Pose Seals and Movic Idol cards left. Theres more to come,  awaiting shipping in Japan so keep checking in.

Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon – Shine Like Justice – V 3.0 Is Here!. Whats new, you say?

There is also an archive and recent comments dashboard. This Theme also supports additional security measures, always a good thing.

In other news I have a new lot of cards on the way and will be adding them soon, so stay close.

Update time again, I have added new Sailor Moon cards from Morinaga, Nissui, Marushō, Movic, Yamakatsu etc. these are getting much harder to come by. I’m really happy with this last lot, more rare cards than usual, a lot more than just the big five sets.
I would like to share this with you too… The Sailor Moon Collector’s Purity Test. It was developed and written by Sarah “Sakky” Forde – http://Sakkysmoonbag.deviantart.com/  (She has an great collection on display). Not at all to my surprise I made it just over the threshold of “The Holy Moon Collector”, lol
I really enjoyed it, Thanks Sakky!.

It’s today! HAPPY 20TH ANNIVERSARY SAILOR MOON! The anime was released on March 7th 1992 at 7:00 PM, to be precise. Odd that there seems to be no official announcement at the Toei, or at the Sailormoon Channel site, not yet anyway.

I suspect there will be more people queuing up episode one of Sailor Moon today then any time in the last twenty years. lol

Are you looking for North American Sailor Moon cards, or Japanese Sailor Moon cards? it’s been a few months since I have been able to put together a decent sized update but they are finally up. I have added new cards across the board to almost every set at my Extra Cards page. I have a few new sets as well, so have a look at my Extra Sets page too.

It’s getting harder to find new cards at the competitive prices you’ve all come to expect here. It seems that Sailor Moon cards are getting more popular/expensive in Japan as the Sailor Moon 20th anniversary gets closer. I have seen some large card lots selling for more than the $.50 ea. that I sell them to you.  If you couple that with the already high exchange rate, well it makes it a lot harder. The good news is that I have a large stockpile of cards and those prices are set. This update is due in a large part to some unexpected domestic sources, and contains both North American and Japanese Sailormoon cards, so happy hunting!

How would you feel if all Sailor Moon material of any kind was removed from the net? If you were prosecuted for your fanfics, fan art and AMV’s?

This Bill would allow essentially allow A Great Firewall of America and would be a shameful desecration of free speech and any sort of reasonable copyright law. The new Law would allow copyright holders to force websites which have any copyrighted material to be blocked by ISP companies around the country, without requiring that the websites be given time to take the offending material down. It would also put pressure on ISP companies to monitor their users like never before, a gross invasion of privacy. This bill is a direct assault on a free Internet and a shameful attempt by copyright lobbyists to destroy net neutrality. Essentially it’s a censorship law that would end the Internet as we know it in America.

Reddit Founder Alexis Ohanian on CNBC:

“Why is it that when Republicans and Democrats need to solve the budget and the deficit, there’s deadlock, but when Hollywood lobbyists pay them $94 million dollars to write legislation, people from both sides of the aisle line up to co-sponsor it?”

Hi all, just a mini update. I’ve been going to Anime Conventions for, well a loong time. In all that time I’ve never seen a Naoko Takuchi fan panel held in a ball room. I know they did have a pretty big room at Animazement when all the voice actors where there but usually you have to get there early to get a seat because the room is always to small for everyone. Anyway this year at Youmacon that’s exactly what’s happening, this is a large room (400+ seats), it’s being followed by a Sailor Moon fan panel so two hours total. Now Detroit seems an unlikely place for any significant announcement, annd none of the voice actors or production staff etc. are scheduled as guests, so I suppose it must just be great management skills on the part of Youmacon staff in anticipation of a large turnout of Sailor Fans. But well, like I said, Hmm… I’ll let you know.  :3
