29117Re: What's the big deal about Sailor Moon?
- Nov 8 11:50 AMMany people still like Sailor Moon. I am one person, my wife is another. All the many people who have bought and enjoyed the new manga are also interested.
I was just looking at the website for a doujinshi circle called Studio Canopus. She has been drawing and writing Haruka and Michiru doujinshi since the show was on Japanese TV in the 1990s...and she is still drawing and writing about them.
For many people, the series has some of the most charming characters ever created. I know I will forever consider Haruka and Michiru the Queens of Yuri. I'm not alone in this. Yuricon would not exist if Sailor Moon hadn't existed.
It's fine if you left it behind, of course, but there are many people for whom it still holds an important place in our hearts. ^_^
