Happy Miss Dream Monday everyone! It certainly has been the exciting weekend, with the big news of a new Sailor Moon musical to come this September! Today, we have received our copy of the July 2013 edition of Nakayoshi magazine with another flyer of information!

|It appears that the new Sailor Moon musical will be a relaunch, with the Dark Kingdom returning! For those interested in actually going to these performances, you can find information here on Nakayoshi’s website, as well as more details about the schedule, questions, contact info, and more here. On this page, you can actually pre-register for tickets. These are going fast, as of this post the last day of performances have already sold out!|
For those of you unfamiliar with Nakayoshi and possibly coming here for the first time with this huge news, Nakayoshi magazine is a famous publication in Japan which has features shoujo manga for many decades. Sailor Moon is one of many series that was featured in this magazine. News relating to any franchises serialized in Nakayoshi is usually posted within the magazine as well.
| We here at Miss Dream have been working on obtaining magazines that include chapters from Sailor Moon and other of Naoko Takeuchi’s work, which feature differences between the magazine and the eventual book releases.|
Some months after the new anime announcement last year, we subscribed to the magazine to be able to bring scans such as above as soon as possible. We also post full issues of our collection for everyone’s enjoyment. While we do get the issues as they arrive, we post the full issues a month after the publication date on the first Monday of each month. Therefore today, the May 2013 issue is being posted!
We started doing recently what I call the Nakayoshi Rush. Previous to a couple weeks ago, we were only posting anywhere between 1 – 3 Nakayoshi issues a week. Well, when we saw how big our queue was and how many more we have on the way, we decided to really up our posting rate for our backlog to post 5 Nakayoshi each week no matter what, which will still have us covered until late August. The other four issues going online today all include different chapters of Sailor Moon, which are:
That’s all we have this week. Next week, expect the Nakayoshi Rush to continue, and we will also post more news as we see it! Until then, follow us on Twitter for breaking news updates and more! Also, please considering donating to a fund to help staff member Jen bring her pet cat to the vet as he is getting really sick. Thank you, and see you next week!

Happy Miss Dream Monday everyone! In this Memorial Day posting, we have some nice additions to our art books section. All five of the Pretty Soldiers Fan Books have been scanned and are ready for your viewing and downloading pleasure! This books are very rare and highly sought after, many thanks to staff member Tommy who let us scan these gems for your pleasure!
We also continue our Nakayoshi Rush this week! We are continuing posting up issues in the order of publication that are in the queue. You’ll notice that the first issue is out of place in comparison to last week. This is because I was unable to locate the RAR archive in time for posting, which is why it has been posting this week. I have gone through and ensured that everything else is in the proper place, naturally the only thing out of place was what was just mentioned for the first week of the rush. -_-;; Without further ado, here are this week’s postings!
While checking to ensure everything is in place, I plotted the schedule for the rush. All issues that are prepared and in queue at the rate we intend to post them in, we won’t be done until mid-August! Yes, with the five a week rush rate! Crazy! @[email protected];; This does not include issues we have purchased that will be on the way to us over the next month or two. Next week, expect the rush to continue, and possible more fun postings as well. Also, please don’t forget about our garage sale! Own a piece of internet history for a fraction of the cost, and make room in our house for more goodness to post! See you next week, and enjoy this week’s downloads!
Happy Miss Dream Monday everyone! Today is the day you have all been waiting for, the v2s of Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon are finally online! Head on over to the PGSM portal to get the bulk download torrent, and all of the direct download links have been updated as well. Enjoy y’all’s massive downloading spree!
This week, I am starting the Nakayoshi rush! As of this typing, we have over 60 issues prepared! (A good chunk of these are for sale, buy them!!) We have more on the way next month (clear out my house!!), and the 2 – 3 each week just isn’t going to cut it, or all of these will take forever. Starting this week, every update will have at least 5 issues posted online. About three and a half months seems a lot better than over a year to get up just what we have ready, not even counting the ones on the way. This week, we’re going 80s! All issues today are from the late 1980s! While none of these have any work from Naoko Takeuchi, there are a lot of classic shoujo titles that you will not find anywhere else!
* January 1986
* September 1986
* February 1988
* April 1988
* October 1988
That’s going to finish this week! Please buy our old magazines to create space in our house for the new ones! These are cheaper that what you would find them for elsewhere, and can be bound back together with just a little effort. Next week, the rush continues! We’re also working on getting another interesting thing posted that I’m aiming for next week as well. See you then, and enjoy today’s downloads! =D
Happy Miss Dream Monday everyone! I apologize for the brief unannounced break. In order to be able to be ready for our garage sale, a high portion of my free time was devoted to scanning individual chapters from the issues that merited it (yes, this means manual scans of Naoko’s work will be on the way instead of the auto-feed versions you see now), while simultaneously prepping the sales page with Elly. This year’s sale has certainly been going a lot smoother than last year, however it is far from over. In case anyone missed it, last weekend we cut the prices of all remaining merchandise in half! Please buy this stuff, everything must go! We need room in our house, especially with another giant batch en route sometime to us next month. Own pieces of internet history! =D
As for new postings, we have two more Nakayoshi issues up today. First, we finally finish off 1996 with its December issue. The Stars arc comes closer to the end, along with other favorites from the 90s in this issue. Being the first update of the month, last month’s Nakayoshi is up with April 2013 going online!
That is all for this week. In the coming weeks, I will likely be expediting our Nakayoshi magazine postings, given the amount I have in queue and the ones previously mentioned that will just add to this. Work is still going on for the PGSM V2s. While I don’t have a solid ETA, I’m told the majority of this work is done, and then we can finally release a batch torrent that y’all have been requesting. Also in line will be a number of our releases in multiple different formats to make them more accessible. These have been done over the past few months by staff member Messenger Star, and I’m hoping I can catch up with what she’s done so her work can be part of the weekly update. As for newly translated material, work continues on Toki Meca, however I wouldn’t expect anything from that until later in the summer. Next week will be another bit of a surprise week, will be posting other things that were mentioned earlier this year. Enjoy today’s postings and we’ll see you next week!
And seriously, buy stuff from the garage sale. Please allow us to reclaim space in our house. ;_;
