Time to get down to studying!
Ever wanted to see how you stack up in terms of how much raw Sailor Moon trivia you’ve managed to commit to memory over your years as a dedicated Moonie?
Well, fortunately for you, now’s your chance! Today, you’re officially invited to take a stab at the this manga-focused Sailor Moon trivia quiz, with a selection of questions, chosen from across the seasons by me aimed to test your Sailor mettle.
Good luck, and be sure to share your results — not only is it a great way to challenge your friends, but I’d love to see how everyone does so I can adjust the difficulty for future quizzes going forward!
Prism Power (Paperback)
After several long years in the making, I’m excited to finally be able to announce that my first book, “Prism Power: A Fan’s Guide to Sailor Moon,” is finally published and now available in both paperback and hardcover versions on Amazon stores across the globe!
So what is “Prism Power” about and how does it tie into the blog? Essentially, the 311-page book is a love letter to the Sailor Moon presented in the only way I know how: through in-depth reviews of each and every episode and manga act across the Dark Kingdom story arc and filled with bits of trivia, story inconsistencies, and cultural references along the way.
- Reviews of every anime episode and manga act in the Dark Kingdom arc
- Trivia, art and story inconsistencies, cultural and language references
- Interview with series director, Junichi Sato
- Breakdown of each of the Guardians’ school uniforms
- Glossary of important terms and characters
- … and more!
Prism Power: 173% Funded on Kickstarter and Counting!
Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined when I started this blog two and a half years ago that not only would I be writing a book about Sailor Moon, but that I would be sitting down for coffee to chat with those involved in bringing the series to TV.
The world apparently works in mysterious ways, however, and that’s exactly what’s happening.
I’m incredibly pleased to announce that the Prism Power book will be featuring an exclusive interview with Sailor Moon series director and critically-acclaimed anime veteran, Junichi Sato!
Unlike the other stretch goals — including the 悪霊退散 (Akuryo Taisan) bookmarks printed on Japanese-style washi paper and the oh-so-close-to-being-funded illustrated map of Sailor Moon‘s Azabu-Juban — this exclusive interview with Junichi Sato will be joining the anime episode and manga act reviews as a part of the book itself.
If this is something that interests you, there’s more information available in today’s Kickstarter update, including some of the questions I plan on asking, and an opportunity for you to submit your own! It’s not every day that we get to ask why certain choices were made to someone who personally had a hand in Sailor Moon‘s creation, so I’m hoping to make the most of it!
In closing, I just want to say how immensely thankful I am to all of you who read Tuxedo Unmasked, and have even turned this personal project of mine into an exciting two-way dialogue. None of this would be possible without you.
“Prism Power” now live on Kickstarter!
Update: 320% funded! (199 backers)
After months of preparation, I’m incredibly excited to announce that the Kickstarter campaign for Prism Power: A Fan’s Guide to Sailor Moon is finally live!
Exclusive Kickstarter extras include:
“Prism Power” (cover design not final)
Picking a name for my upcoming Sailor Moon book was surprisingly much harder than I ever expected it to be. After all, I had quite the opposite experience with this blog. I actually already had the name “Tuxedo Unmasked” picked out before I even knew what I wanted the blog to be about. After two or three false starts, I settled on what you see here today.
But! I’m happy to announce that the name issue is finally behind us now.
Prism Power: A Fan’s Guide to Sailor Moon is now starting to take shape! I’ve hammered out the direction a bit better, and the slow,
painful exciting drive toward writing all of the content continues to chug along.
I’ve got a few more announcements about the book — including the Kickstarter launch date and details on that — and about some other new Sailor Moon-related projects I’m hoping to start up soon.
Stick around, I’ll try to keep this interesting!
