Sailor Moon is Back! #Yasss



Not sure if you’ve noticed, but we’re basically a bunch of big kids here at CollegeCandy. We love anything glittery, pink, pretty and animated because obviously, true adulthood is boring. I won’t even front – I still watch cartoons in my downtime with one of my favorite being vintage “Sailor Moon” episodes. I saw my first episode of “Sailor Moon” when I was in the third grade. I was never really into action shows like “Pokémon” or “Yugioh”…the shows with predominately female characters on Nickelodeon and Disney Channel were more my speed (umm – “Taina”?). But Sailor Moon was different. It combined the girly goodness that I loved while providing a dose of ass-kicking action. What 8-year-old wouldn’t want to fight evil by moonlight and win love by daylight?! Exxxactly.

Good news for the fangirls and boys – the series is being rebooted! Woo hoo! “Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal” features a few character design makeovers and more serious treatment of the show’s LGBT characters according to Jezebel. The trailer is in Japanese, but hopefully the series will be dubbed for us stateside Sailor Moon fans. Watch the video below!
