Crystal Star, Cosmic Heart Compact, and Crisis Moon Compact mirror brooches by Starlight Studio:
I own all three of these mirrors (in addition to the old Crystal Star brooch, which is no longer available) and I can’t recommend Starlight Studio’s work enough! Not only is the craftsmanship outstanding, they ship very quickly and for free!
I colored another doodle from one of my furoku sets! I wonder why Usagi’s crying? Maybe she’s thinking of Mamo-chan?
Just a few samples of the Nakayoshi Sailor Moon card set I got off of Yahoo Japan. I’ll post better pictures later!
I bought yet another furoku (Nakayoshi promotional goodies) set, this time a notebook. It was filled with these doodles (along with others, which I’ll post later), which where never reprinted anywhere else (to my knowledge). I’ve never seen these posted online before so I figured I’d share them with the world!
They’re watermarked because the furoku set was bought, scanned, and edited by me. Please let me know if you want the original scans to edit! You can also see more of my exclusive furoku scans here.
Destruction: Saturn vs Galaxia
It’s interesting to note that both Sailor Saturn and Sailor Galaxia are known as “The Soldier of Destruction.”
However, it’s clear that Saturn and Galaxia’s methods and types of destruction are very different.
Galaxia’s destruction is of the worst kind, senseless and brutal. She destroys for the sake of destroying, wiping out entire planets without a second thought. This type of destruction is all too common in our world; we’ve seen it throughout history and continue to see it to this day, watching as lives and even entire habitats are obliterated.
But not all destruction is terrible; in fact, the purest form of destruction is actually creation and rebirth, and this is what Sailor Saturn represents. For example, in real life, grasslands need to utilize the destructive power of fire in order to grow; the fire burns down the old vegetation and turns it into nutrients that new plants use to grow. And humanity actually owes our entire existence to one of the most devastating mass extinctions in Earth’s history; had the dinosaurs never been wiped out, mammals wouldn’t have been able to evolve and thrive, eventually leading to the birth of our ancestors. For our world to be born, the old one had to die.
This is exactly what Sailor Saturn’s duty is. She wipes out worlds that have run their course in order to make way for the growth of something new. She’s the exact opposite of Galaxia: A force of nature that utilizes her power for something good instead of something senseless and selfish.
I know that Sailor Galaxia is technically Sailor Moon’s antithesis (and for good reason), but I would have loved to have a showdown between her and Saturn.

Headcanon: Rei’s necklace
In the manga, Rei is often shown wearing a necklace. In fact, during the earlier arcs, she’s never seen without it.
The Materials Collection even makes special mention of it.
It also mentions that, after transforming into Sailor Mars, the pendant moves to her waist and becomes a tool that helps her generate fire.
To me, this seems to imply that Rei’s pendant has a special significance to her. So I did a little digging through the manga, and lo and behold:
That’s right; Rei’s deceased mother, Risa (name revealed through PGSM, btw), owned the exact same necklace! See?
So my idea is that, before she died, Risa passed her necklace onto Rei and Rei’s treasured it ever since. She treasures it so much that it actually becomes a part of her fuku and helps her with her powers; in a way, it’s almost like Risa herself is supporting and helping her daughter even though she died years ago.
I bought a custom pin of the Prism Heart Compact off of Yahoo Japan and it’s finally here! It’s a lot smaller than what I was expecting (as evidenced by the size comparison with my hand) but it’s still adorable and very well made!
More importantly, this means that I finally have at least one representation of all of Sailor Moon and Chibi Moon’s brooches in my collection! Well, I’m still missing hrs Eternal Article, but I’ll work on that!
