|We are also continuing Nakayoshi Rush, with five more issues of the Japanese periodical going online. Today, we continue through 1998, having Nakayoshi issues of spring and summer, covering the months of March, May, June, July, and August. Nakayoshi magazine is a famous publication in Japan which has featured shoujo manga for many decades. Sailor Moon is one of many franchises that was featured in this magazine. News relating to any franchises serialized in Nakayoshi is usually posted within the magazine as well. While there are no Sailor Moon or Naoko Takeuchi works in these issues, they do contain chapters from the popular shoujo series, Card Captor Sakura.|

|That’s all for this week, we hope you enjoy today’s downloads, especially the highly sought after Sailor Moon Shin Kaguya Shima Densetsu Kaiteiban MARINAMOON FINAL musical! Next week will continue our Nakayoshi Rush postings, and we will finally have some more additions to our raw downloads page as well.|
Once again, please join me in wishing Elly a very Happy Birthday! We will see you next week!
Available today via Premium Bandai’s Creer Beaute website are a new line of Sailor Moon T-shirts, Necklaces, Wall Scroll, and Microfiber Mini Towels. :D
The T-shirts are retailing for 4988 yen each (roughly $50 USD), while the necklace collection is much pricier – retailing at 12600 each ($127). The wall scroll is 3150 yen ($32 USD), and the microfiber mini towel is 600 yen (roughly $6).
The t-shirts are in ladies sizes, so these are not intended for children, but young women (ages 17-20, as listed next to each size that is available for order). Since these are listed as a “Summer Collection”, perhaps we’ll see more Sailor Moon apparel coming this fall as well.
The necklace items are made of sterling silver and are pretty small (approximately 17 mm across and high!) These necklaces are not lockets and do not appear to open like the items in the show do.
This has been linked on Anime News Network with some additional pictures as well. Thanks for the source link guys!
| Happy Miss Dream Monday everyone! Today we continue Nakayoshi Rush, where the Nakayoshi 1995 issues are now complete! Nakayoshi magazine is a famous publication in Japan which has featured shoujo manga for many decades. Sailor Moon is one of many franchises that was featured in this magazine. News relating to any franchises serialized in Nakayoshi is usually posted within the magazine as well. The Nakayoshi 1995 issues contain chapters from Sailor Moon, as well as other famous shoujo from the time period. Magic Knight Rayearth and Saint Tail are among the titles which can be found in these Nakayoshi 1995 issues downloads and galleries.|
Outside of the Nakayoshi 1995 issues downloads postings is the Nakayoshi February 1998 issue. While there are no Sailor Moon or Naoko Takeuchi works in this issue, it does contain a chapter from the popular shoujo series, Card Captor Sakura. This issue just happens to be one of the ones we acquired in our quest to obtain all the issues that feature work by Naoko Takeuchi. A lot of issues were in bulk pack sales, and rather than just do nothing with them, we figured that these could be enjoyed by all of you!
This week we also welcome a couple of new members to our staff, so please welcome Krysta and Senshi-chan! Long time visitors might be noticing that we are doing a lot of reworking of various pages, and Krysta will be doing wirte-ups for many of our pages to go along with these changes. Senshi-chan, who some of you might know as the organizer of Sailor Moon NYC Meetup, will be doing graphical work for items that we translate. We’re happy to have them added to the team! If anyone else would like to join, please contact us as we would love to have you aboard. Primarily we are looking for more graphical design people, as we never have enough.
This is all we have this week. We hope you enjoy the download and galleries for the final Nakayoshi 1995 issues as well as the Nakayoshi February 1998 issue! Next week we shall continue the Nakayoshi Rush, with more issues from 1998 to be posted online. Work is continuing on translations, where we hope to be able to start posting more within the next month or two. As always, we will do our best to post news as it happens, in which you can always refer to our news posts section. You should also keep an eye on our Twitter account for updates as we post them, as well as the official English translation Twitter account for Osabu-P as we translate his updates from Japan. We hope you enjoy today’s downloads, and will see y’all soon!

|Happy Miss Dream Monday everyone! Nakayoshi Rush comes back today, where we focus on the Nakayoshi Summer 1995 issues! Nakayoshi magazine is a famous publication in Japan which has featured shoujo manga for many decades. Sailor Moon is one of many franchises that was featured in this magazine. News relating to any franchises serialized in Nakayoshi is usually posted within the magazine as well. We especially saw this last week, with a lot of Sailor Moon merchandise and other news being announced in the August 2013 issue released. The Nakayoshi Summer 1995 issues all do contain chapters from Sailor Moon, as well as other famous shoujo from the time period. Magic Knight Rayearth and Saint Tail are among the titles which can be found in these Nakayoshi Summer 1995 downloads and galleries.|
Outside of the Nakayoshi Summer 1995 downloads postings is a more recent Nakayoshi issue. Nakayoshi June 2013 goes up for download and viewing today. While there are no Sailor Moon or Naoko Takeuchi works in this issue, it does contain current works such as Doki Doki Pretty Cure. For those wondering why we are not posting the full August issue that was released last week, that is actually part of the reason. We post up current Nakayoshi issues on the first (in this case, second) Monday of the month following the publication date. However, as seen last week, we are more than happy to post any Sailor Moon content in the current issues as soon as humanly possible.
We are still working on more translations for the future, and even more Nakayoshi magazine issues have recently arrived. We have started to work on getting these scanned, and bring more vintage goodness to the site for your downloading and viewing pleasure. The Nakayoshi Summer 1995 issues can be seen in the image links below, and June 2013 issue in the link to the left. We hope that you enjoy these new downloads, and will see you next time!

Breaking news: Sailor Moon eyeliner, gashapon, apparel, and more! I’m pressed for time today, but here’s some breaking news from the August 2013 issue of Nakayoshi magazine, which goes on sale in Japan today:

Momoiro Clover Z, the JPOP idol group who is confirmed to be performing the new Sailor Moon anime theme song, will be having a concert August 4th in which they will be making an announcement regarding the new Sailor Moon anime series. The flyer recaps Momoclo’s performance in Paris during the 20th anniversary Niconico Douga live stream event in which the new Sailor Moon anime was announced, and gives ticket information and concert schedule for Momoiro Clover Z’s upcoming tour.

This flyer confirms a few cool things. First, new merchandise. We will be receiving:
Plus, it says that the new merchandise is aimed towards young women in the 20s. Which we kind of already knew, but hey, an official confirmation is nice.
There’s also some information about when the new anime series will premiere. It says that the series is officially in production, and will be scheduled to begin sometime between this November and January of 2014.
Sounds pretty cool! My copy of Nakayoshi magazine for this announcement is here, so I’ll be making a more detailed post about this tonight. There’s some information about the release dates for the new Sailor Moon 20th anniversary figurines, as well as release dates for some of the previously announced new Sailor Moon merchandise like the Shining Moon Powder compact, the Nail Collection, the smart phone cases, etc. Nothing too revolutionary, everything that is new I’ve listed above.
I’m especially eager to see the new Sailor Moon eyeliner and new Sailor Moon apparel that is referenced in the release schedule, but the gashapon are super adorable as well. I bet collectors are going to go nuts over that! :)
