Sailor Moon is my all time favourite anime/manga series. I was first exposed to it when I was in Grade 2 and now as a 23 year old my love for the series hasn’t diminished at all. The manga is absolutely gorgeous and the story is even better. Many people don’t like Sailor Moon because they have been exposed to the English dubbed anime in North America, with it’s repeated and censored storyline. The manga is much different. It is fast paced and contains so many elements that I love including strong female protagonists, elemental affinities, life and death, LGBTQ themes, a mixture of religious symbols to make you think about all the differences, personal responsibility, and the importance of self confidence. In addition, the manga starts off so happy that it always brightens up my mood. As an older reader, I am finding more things about the series that I originally missed such as looking at the series from a feminist perspective. There’s always something to think about.
Questions for readers:
- Do you read manga? If not, why?
- What manga do you read?
- Are you a Sailor Moon fan?
- When was the last time you read a comic?
- Do you think comics are too “young” for your age, or that there is an age that you should stop reading them?
