This update, it’s all love, love, LOVE! Sailor Moon style! If it’s not Naru’s heart moving on, it’s Ami having her first love that she’ll conveniently forget about in three seasons! Or it’s Usagi and Mamoru sending their sexual tension through the roof when posing for a romantic portrait! Makoto and Usagi set their sights on winning Motoki’s love – whether he has a girlfriend or not! Even Rei has to contend with the affections of a guy that may or may not be a crazed hobo while her Grandfather finally loses it. All this and more, on episodes 26-30 of Sailor Moon!

Yea yea, the next recap of that OLD anime is coming. Now make googly eyes about the new one!
The show is intended for a simultaneous worldwide release, so it will be interesting to see how the localization process is going to be handled this time. Obviously I’d prefer they stick to the script this time – no DiCization, Japanese names. The fact that the current English edition of the manga is using the original names and (stilted scripts aside) staying close to the script, as well as the fact that anime dubbing is a lot better in the almost two decades since the original dub was produced, keeps me hopeful. I’d also expect that it would be REALLY tricky to handle a localization on that scale with the level of content edits that previous international dubs saw.
Regardless, this is great news and suddenly my recap project is a lot more relevant!

In the meantime, the last project that I worked on came out in May 22nd. It’s game entitled Sorcery for the PS3 Move. The reviews for it have been pretty good, and though I’m not sure how many of my readers actually have both the PS3 and the Move, I’d suggest picking it up if you meet those requirements. And for fun facts time, I’ll add that I voiced the cat, Erline, during the game’s development before the official voice cast signed on. So I’m more than a little attached to her

Yea, remember how I said this was going to be a media blog? Yea, I meant that – it’s not just going to be Sailor Moon stuff (even if the rewatch is taking precedence at the moment.) I watch other things too! So since Nickolodeon was so kind to start streaming the first two episodes of The Legend of Korra ahead of their official premiere for this current weekend, I figure I can toss out a few words.

Apparently the LA Times had an article about the 20th anniversary of Sailor Moon. It’s kind of interesting to see the show appear in such a mainstream publication, though not too odd considering the popularity of the relaunch. The article, obviously, focuses on the English dub, which is kind of funny considering the DiC dub didn’t air until 1995…thus “Serena” is still a few years shy of her 20th Anniversary. Also funny because they interviewed Kodansha USA, which uses the Japanese naming conventions.
Next recap is coming soon – GDC ate last week, but I have a post in the pipeline that will cover Episodes 6-10.
