- Just thought I'd relate a recent incident from my anime club...
Our new president is a bit of a yuri fangirl, and we've been
conspiring to get as much yuri into the schedules as possible. We're
having yuri vs yaoi week soon (to make up for the fact that none of us
can afford to go to Yuricon), but last week was Magical Girl week,
wherein we decided to show Episode 92 of Sailor Moon (you know the one
I mean ^_^).
In charge of locating this episode was my friend Colin, who has
virtually every episode of Sailor Moon, but hasn't ever got round to
watching any. Having heard from me that there is more yuri potential
in Sailor Moon than just Haruka and Michiru, he decided to watch a
random episode to see if it was true...
Most of you have probably read Erica's article relating to the first
episode of Sailor Moon she watched (if not, it's mentioned here-
http://www.worldshaking.net/FAQ.htm and indeed here-
http://www.asgard.gen.nz/anime/yuri/archives.html ). With this in
mind, see if you can guess what my friend told me the following day... ^_^
"I just picked a random episode. Rei wins tickets for a romantic
cruise, and decides to take Ami with her. Then Usagi gets jealous and
follows them. It was baltant shoujo-ai..."
Suffice to say, he is now a convert. It just amuses me that out of the
200 episodes available, he managed to pick the very same episode that
converted Erica. And had precisely the same reaction. Well, he didn't
go and set up a huge convention/mass media conspiracy dedicated to
yuri, but it's early days yet. I have high hopes for him... ^_^
"Convertin' like Dokken"
