PGSM Act Zero, Special Act, and Much More!

We’re back and hitting the ground running! This week we’ve got a lot of new content for you to enjoy, such as…

The finale of PGSM! Please enjoy downloads of:

Act Zero direct download | torrent
Special Act direct download | torrent

Which officially wraps up our PGSM project! We’ll be releasing omake videos from the DVD box set, as well as the Kirari * Super Live and Dance Special – but no real time line on those since they aren’t high on our priority list.

A big thank you to everyone who has been watching PGSM along with us! It took us roughly a year to finish this series so this is a big achievement for us as a group! Since we have wrapped up the main leg of this project, I want to open this post to comments so everyone can weigh in on their thoughts, comments, and corrections they have found.

I am particularly interested in people’s corrections for issues they’ve had with our past releases; over the next week or two we will be adding a giant bulk download and torrent of the entire series and I want to have corrected, updated episodes available in those packs that are absolutely perfect. I want to create an archival version of the series, if you will. So please let me know your thoughts, as they will be credited for directly improving our work!

Next up, I’d like to share a few more issues of Nakayoshi magazine from my growing collection:

August 1994 feat. chapter 32 of Sailor Moon & Magic Knights Rayearth
July 2001 feat. Musume Monogatari (about Morning Musume)
August 2001 feat. Musume Monogatari & Tokyo Mew Mew (chp. 12)

I’ll be adding more and more issues of Nakayoshi over the coming months; thanks to my very own Daddy Longlegs I’ve been able to obtain quite a few back issues of the magazine featuring the works of Naoko Takeuchi. There are many significant dialogue and artwork differences between what appears in Nakayoshi and what is printed in the comic book formats.

Lastly, today I would like to share a project that I’ve had in development for roughly six months.

As it turns out, I am not the only crazy person in the world trying to track down issues of old Japanese magazines to find Naoko Takeuchi’s original works.

Unfortunately, it is a very difficult task, no matter what your native language is. Most of the information one would need to figure out which issues you need is almost impossible to find. Making matters worse is the fact that it is very difficult to find anyone selling issues of the magazine – often times the issues you need are more than a decade old. Most Japanese book stores throw out their unsold copies of Nakayoshi every January to make shelf space. So they’re hard to come by and also super expensive.

My research on this topic isn’t complete yet, but I’d say it’s about 90% done. This database is bilingual so that you can copy and paste the correct Japanese titles into search engines when you try to buy something. I hope many of you out there will find it useful!

I’ll also be adding in a guide for North American publications over the coming months; look out for it!

That’s all for today. We’ll see you next week with more Nakayoshi downloads and more! :)

PGSM Acts 47 – finale + Nakayoshi October 2012

Miss Dream Monday is back! Today we are finishing off the main story line for Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon:

Act 47: direct download | torrent
Act 48: direct download | torrent
Final Act: direct download | torrent

Next week we will be posting Act Zero and the Special Act. After that, we intend on releasing the Kirari * Super Live event and the Super Dance Lesson, but when will be determined by demand. We’ll likely get them both online some time before the end of the year but we’re not sure when at this point. Ditto for the DVD omake videos. :)

Today I am pleased to announce that we finally have our lyrics database back online! You can access it via the “translations” drop down menu or by clicking here.

Also worth checking out is the Nakayoshi October 2012 issue, featuring an advertisement for the 2013 Sailor Moon anime, as well as DVD and manga box sets to be released this month.

I have a subscription to Nakayoshi magazine and there is no mention of Sailor Moon anywhere in the November or December issues of the magazine. However, since I now have a regular subscription I will be providing full scans of all the current issues of Nakayoshi magazine for the foreseeable future. If Sailor Moon makes a random appearance again (and I have a feeling it might) we’ll have copies of it here for your downloading pleasure.

That’s all for today! Check back next week as we wrap up the PGSM project and kick off a new one. <3

PGSM Acts 44-46 + Spa Magazine

Hello everyone, and welcome back to Miss Dream Monday!

Although a majority of our staff was affected by Hurricane Sandy, we’ve managed to pull through with some updates for today. Here are the next three episodes of Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, for your viewing enjoyment:

Act 44: direct download | torrent
Act 45: direct download | torrent
Act 46: direct download | torrent

Next up, please enjoy a download of the ultra-rare SPA Magazine, featuring an exclusive photoshoot with Sailor Moon series creator Naoko Takeuchi. The images from this photo shoot are extremely difficult to find and were never released outside of this magazine – so having nice, 600 DPI scans is definitely handy for any die-hard fan! But please be aware, this magazine is intended for an adult audience. Definitely not safe to flip through the entire publication at work.
SPA magazine issue 5.25 download

We are a bit behind schedule in our scanlation releases, but this is due to the fact that several of our graphical designers have been left without power in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Please send your thoughts and/or prayers to our designer Rebecca of fame, as she and her family have been left without power for almost a week now.

If you can, please consider donating to the Red Cross in their effort to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy.

We’ll see you back next week with a massive haul of Nakayoshi magazine back issue raws. Until then, enjoy!

PGSM Acts 38-40

It’s Miss Dream Monday, and we’re back with more goodies!

Here are the next three episodes of PGSM; we’re getting close to the end now!

Act 38: direct download | torrent
Act 39: direct download | torrent
Act 40: direct download | torrent

Also give a read to Misty’s latest Kodansha error guide, detailing the mistakes made in Sailor Moon 7.

Today we are also releasing Prism Time volume 2, by Sailor Moon series creator Naoko Takeuchi. Prism Time 2 is a collection of short stories that were made long before Sailor Moon ever became a serialization, and was released in tankoubon format after Sailor Moon’s manga had ended. It is definitely worth checking out if you’re a hard core fan of shoujo manga!

Check back next week for a slew of new raw additions, as well as the resurrection of our lyrics database. MarioKnight has been hard at work manually re-coding the section and we expect to have it ready next Monday. Until then, enjoy and have a great week!

Also – happy birthday to Aino Minako, AKA Sailor Venus!
