Here’s my complete Sailor Moon card set! This set was produced by Nakayoshi in the early 90s as a way to promote Sailor Moon and trying to buy a complete set can be difficult; I was lucky enough to this set for a decent price on Yahoo Japan.
Luna and Artemis are the Joker cards, and that picture of Sailor Moon holding playing cards is on the back of each card. The cards are random for the most part, but there is a pattern:
- Sailor Moon is always the ace
- Minako is always the 2nd card
- The Shitennou represent each of the jokers (Jadeite is the joker of hearts, Nephrite is the joker of clubs, Zoisite is the joker of diamonds, and Kunzite is the joker of spades)
- The Senshi represent each king and queen (Usagi represents hearts, Mako is clubs, Rei is diamonds, and Ami is spades; I don’t know why Usagi got a suit and Minako didn’t, especially considering that Usagi’s the ace)
I’ll post better pictures later, especially of the cards that feature rare artwork!
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.

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.

"Call me back when you’ve got a title like "Eternal" or "Infinite" or "Cosmic" tacked onto your name and your magical girl uniform has a ridiculous amount of frills and lace and baubles on it. Gawd, Madoka, you’re so fucking basic.” ~Silvermoon424
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.
