What if she was in the 2013 anime though?
that would be great. HBIC and shameless fangirl always need more of those.
"I don’t think he can really capture you anyway"
I LOVE HER.

(TW mention of suicide)

She blames herself

It is that feeling of helplessness and uselessness that causes her to remember, because she honestly blames herself for what happened that day.

She failed in her duty, she wasn’t able to keep her princess safe and everyone suffered and the Princess, the person she dedicated everything to, killed herself right in front of her.

And she thinks it was all somehow her fault.

And that is why lying there as the flames surround her, feeling so hopeless and inadequate the memories finally start flooding back.

What shocks me is that this never happens for any of the others, none of them hit a point of such emotional resonance that they remember the past, because none of them are carrying around the blame and hurt and sheer emotional baggage Venus is.

She blames herself.

V is captured and desperatly wishing someone, anyone, could show up and save her.
And then, she sees them in her head, smiling and waving and oh gosh look at how happy Venus is to see her team?
As little as we know about their past, and even though most of what we do know either involves that final battle or Serenity and Endymion’s ill fated romance, at least panels like that one make it clear that the inner senshi were always friends.
I mean, just look at those smiles!

we need inner senshi hanging out in silmil flashbacks in the new anime like burning

ROUTE VENUS! My first ever MANGA MUSIC VIDEO! From both the Codename: Sailor V and Sailor Moon mangas.

I mean I’ve done superhero comic vids before but…this is manga…so it’s different…even if the principals are the same…

okay so this was really hard but I absolutely adore the depth and intensity of Minako’s story in the manga so it was worth it. Also badassery. Minako/ holy sword of asskicking and enemy stabbing otp.

The song is Minako’s Sailor Moon R image song “Route Venus”, sung by her voice actor Rika Fukami and written by Naoko Takeuchi herself. It’s awesome.

I’ve added subtitles now! Some of you may want to turn them off, since with still pictures they cover up stuff plus reading two things at once etc. All you have to do is look among the options at the bottom of the video window, click the CC button and click “turn captions off”. You can turn them back on when you want to. I just love the lyrics a lot and did make an effort to match them with the pictures a little, so I wanted the experience of being able to match them to the voice to be an option.

I’ll add the subs later. Don’t feel like it right now. once they are added, be aware there’s an option to turn them off, since I know it can be harrowing to read two things at once.

Manga Rec #3: Codename: Sailor V by Takeuchi Naoko! Shoujo, SFF/action/dramedy. Originally collected in three volumes, Sailor V was later republished in two oversized volumes. Kodansha Comics has published both oversized volumes in North America (the first time Sailor V’s been made legally available in English in the USA, whoo!).
Sailor V is the predecessor (later retooled partway through its run to be a prequel) to Sailor Moon; it was published sporadically throughout Sailor Moon’s run, with the final chapter in Sailor V published after Sailor Moon ended. As such, it’s interesting to see how certain elements from Sailor V were copied over to Sailor Moon (Minako and Usagi have the same basic family and very similar friends), but how different they are from each other, too.
Sailor V stars Aino Minako, a cheerful, boy-crazy junior high athlete who leaps at the call (given to her by a talking white cat, naturally) to become a fashionable soldier of love and beauty. She loves video games and hates injustices and the opportunity to live out what seems to her to be a real life arcade game is 100% awesome. The first half of Sailor V is thus largely comedic and action-oriented, with a great deal of slapstick and romantic hijinks running through it. But as time goes by, Minako begins to realize being a soldier—even of love and beauty—isn’t the endless fun she thought it would be. The police are chasing after her, she doesn’t have much time for her friends, the bad guys she’s fighting are growing nastier, her cat keeps telling her there are bigger things at work here—bigger things she must do than just punish some jerks, the love she’s chasing after looks more and more like a desert mirage, and her own tragic past life is catching up with her.
While Sailor V is more overtly comedic than Sailor Moon, in a lot of ways it’s also bleaker; tragedy marks Sailor V deeper than it does its sister title. Minako must weigh personal aspirations against the sacrifices asked of her, love against duty, the life she wanted against the life she must assume. It’s sad, but sweet, too, and as Minako grows through her struggles and her sacrifices, she finds new purpose and another, more mature hope within her.
Sailor V is a wonderful complement to Sailor Moon, but it’s also a fabulous title in and of itself. I am really, really happy it’s finally been published in the USA! If you still aren’t ready to commit to the longer time and energy investment that is Sailor Moon, give Sailor V a shot first; see if you’re interested in this mythos. It’s worth it, I think!

More of all my feelings.
