Sailor Moon in Tokyo ViVi May 2014

This page is a translation of the Sailor Moon in Tokyo ViVi May 2014 article. The article itself promotes Sailor Moon 20th Anniversary Project merchandise, and also features a spread with Japanese model Rola. Sailor Moon in Tokyo ViVi May 2014 is really worth picking up because of the limited edition Sailor Moon pouch that came as a bonus gift inside of the magazine. :)

Tokyo Vivi is a Japanese fashion magazine aimed towards women in their 20s. It often features small articles or promotions for iconic anime series such as Sailor Moon. It has heavily promoted Sailor Moon since 2013 and will likely continue to do so throughout the 20th Anniversary Project run.

Sailor Moon came out when I was about eight I guess? I had just come back to Japan and couldn’t speak Japanese very well, but I was aaaallways watching the anime! My family got me the transformation goods and at home I was like “In the name of the moon, I’ll punish you!” (lol) I also liked the lines that were like How dare you take advantage of the beautiful love of young maidens! I, Sailor Moon, will stop you from manipulating love!” The guardian I most loved was of course Usagi Tsukino aka Sailor Moon. She wasn’t just beautiful, her heart was strong and kind and I loved the way she always acted naturally~! So when I heard that I’d get to transform into Sailor Moon for this shoot I was so excited. It’s become a treasured memory I’ll never forget~! Thank you~!!!
