Some of my favorite shots of Rei Hino thus far :3
I… I know that feel.
From one of my personal doujinshi <3 I love Phobos and Deimos so much, I wish they got more attention!
…..they call her Usagi because that’s her name LOL
Her birth name is not Sailor Moon, it’s Usagi :P
I can see how someone who grew up ONLY with the English Dub would find it hard to transition, and it’s not right for someone to get mad at you and tell you that “THAT’S NOT HER NAME!!!1!!!11!!” because in one version, it IS her name. You shouldn’t have to use the Japanese names if you don’t want to.
But you also do need to realize that Usagi, Makoto, Mamoru, etc. are their original names. So if someone is using that name, YOU have to also accept that and not be “offended” or whatever. If you use the dub names and someone tries to correct you, you can tell them that you’re a 90’s dub watcher and THAT’S OKAY!!!! but the original names are going to be more prevalent than the dub’s names, and unfortunately you’re going to have to get used to that :/
Especially with the NEW dub, because that will be using the original names.
I grew up with the 90’s dub and the original sub, and I often myself using the names interchangeably :P Sometimes even in the same sentence!!! I catch myself with “Usagi and Darien” a loooottttttt ahahahah :P
Okay this actually pisses me off because
USAGI TSUKINO IS HER NAME.
SHE WAS GIVEN THAT NAME BY HER CREATOR, NAOKO TAKEUCHI.
"Serena" is just an adaptational name. She also goes by Bunny (in most foreign dubs, as it’s a direct translation of Usagi), Sera (the Korean dub), Yuè Yětù (Cantonese), and Annie (Swedish). The other characters are the exact same.
Idk, it just really annoys me when people act like the first North American dub is somehow more “official” than other dubs or even the original itself. And you can use whatever names you want, but you’ve got to understand that the majority of the fandom sticks with the original names because that’s what we all watch and understand.
Honestly, this is one of the best moments in television history. There was a criminal lack of this scene on the internet, so of course I had to change that.
Hey, this could have gone in a much darker direction.
WELL SOMEONE HAD TO SAY IT
*searches through likes*
I imagine that the blind date would entirely consist of me cuddling this puppy while cooing “WHO’S THE MOST PRECIOUS LITTLE BABY IN THE ENTIRE GALAXY IT’S YOU YES YOU ARE YES YOU ARE IT’S YOU”
imagine life without copy paste
so here’s a fun story about this movie. guess who loves this movie? me! i do! i love this movie. i love this movie so much that when i was in the 7th grade and i saw “first wives club 2” on pay per view i was like: HELL YEAH!! FIRST WIVES CLUB TWO!! NO ONE TOLD ME THERE WAS A SEQUEL!!!
here’s the synopsis for first wives club 2:
disgruntled first wives take their ex-husbands’ new lovers under their wing.
sounds great, right? awesome viewing material for a precocious 11-year-old.
so i buy this movie, and like, three minutes into it i’m starting to feel suspicious?? like it’s really low quality and my girls are nowhere in sight?? how come none of the first wives are the same?? how come they’re alone in a bedroom with mood lighting?? why is she taking off her shirt?? why are they both taking off their shirts?? WHY ARE THEY—
here’s what i did not know about first wives club 2:
- it is a lesbian porno of no relation to the beloved 1996 classic.
so of course i, horrified that i’ve accidentally bought porn on my family’s account (and in that state of panic that kids work themselves into whenever anything regarding sex is mentioned), quickly shut off the TV and go upstairs and watch an episode of veggie tales to like, cleanse my soul and apologize to jesus, and that’s that.
EXCEPT, OF COURSE:
- you have to pay for pay per view.
so the end of the month comes and i have completely put this incident out of my mind, haha, i accidentally bought porn, how funny, TELL NO ONE. right? and i’m sitting at a nice dinner with my mother, my stepfather, and my very religious aunt deb, and we’re just talking about farm things, whatever, when suddenly my mother puts her fork down and says, “okay, there’s something we need to discuss. as a family.”
- AS A FAMILY.
and i’m like, running through a list of people i know who could conceivably be dead, and fantasizing about my mother announcing that she’s going to buy me My Own Computer Just Because U Earned It Kiddo, and she pulls out a piece of paper that says DIRECTV across the top. and i’m like: OH NO.
"i received the tv bill today," my mother said, and i was like, shoveling potatoes into my mouth as fast as i could because i knew that when i went to PORN PRISON they weren’t going to feed me this kind of quality starch. "does anybody want to tell me who purchased the pornography?"
as a reminder, a quick table survey:
- my mother, surprised and disappointed by the porn bill (innocent)
- my stepfather, a grumbly old cowboy who just wants to sing along to kenny chesney and watch the hunt for red october (innocent)
- my aunt deb, a super religious catholic whose best friend is a nun named Sister Placid (innocent)
- me, the 11-year-old with a mouthful of potatoes who definitely purchased the lesbian pornography
my mother said, “i’m not going to ask again.”
my aunt looked at my stepdad. my stepdad looked at my aunt. NOBODY LOOKED AT ME, THE 11-YEAR-OLD WITH A MOUTHFUL OF POTATOES WHO DEFINITELY PURCHASED THE LESBIAN PORNOGRAPHY.
my mother shook her head and put the bill down. “this was incredibly inappropriate,” she said. “skip, deb, whoever. buy that shit on your own time. i’m not paying for it. what if molly had seen it?”
- WHAT IF MOLLY HAD SEEN IT?
"don’t expose my kid to that crap."
- MY KID
- TO THAT CRAP
"if you want to watch porn, fine, but do it in private and don’t expect me to pay for it. i can’t believe one of you did that in the living room."
- I CAN’T BELIEVE ONE OF YOU DID THAT
- IN THE LIVING ROOM
but molly, why didn’t you own up to it and explain that it was an accident?
- are you fucking kidding
- i did not want to go to porn prison
the fun conclusion to this story is that i never owned up to it, which means that there are 3 people in the world who have not solved the mystery of the lesbian porn. a quick survey:
- my mother, who lives every day wondering whose porn she paid for
- my stepfather, who probably wishes he knew less about his wife’s sister’s porn preferences
- my aunt, who probably wishes she knew less about her sister’s husband’s porn preferences
but molly, why don’t you own up to it now, with the safety of time and distance and the knowledge that porn prison isn’t real?
- are you fucking kidding
- this is the best thing i’ve ever done
