I Pity da Fool Who Don’t Celebrate Mother’s Day

Featured Image: “Magical Girl Meet Up” by anime-gal.

I think I can name every title referenced in that picture. From left to right, Shugo Chara!, Magic Knight Rayearth, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Kill la Kill, Cardcaptor Sakura, Sailor Moon, Revolutionary Girl Utena, and Princess Tutu. How’d I do?

Happy Mother’s Day. I should have a review up tomorrow, and then of course we’ll have another chapter of Jake and the Dynamo on Monday.

Now let’s hear from the wisdom of Mr. T:

Art Wednesday

Magical Girl All Star” by hecoheio. That’s it, DeviantART. Get some users whose names are easy to spell or I’m going somewhere else.

I have a series I want to discuss with you all, but I neglected to get any screencaps, so that’s what I’m doing tonight. Have you some art, this one being, apparently, an advertisement for a Hong Kong electronics studio.

How come magical girls don’t advertise things in my country? I would buy way too much stuff if they did.

Not Sure Where, but Beautiful

… and maybe creepy.  This is a life-size statue of Princess Serenity and Prince Endymion from Sailor Moon, somewhere in Kawasaki, courtesy of @tiffako.

First version I’ve seen where it looks like maybe, maybe, Tuxedo Mask has finally learned how to wear white tie correctly.

Addendum: Tiffa informs me it’s a whole Sailor Moon exhibit in Roppongi Hills (so not actually in Kawasaki if I’ve got the geography right; that’s apparently a mistake in the geotag). I’d love to see that myself, but I’m nowhere near Japan.

Art Saturday

Title unknown by タンネ.

I’m behind on reviews, but I’m busy today putting polish on the twelve existing chapters of Jake and the Dynamo before starting in on the thirteenth, and I also need to finish up that essay on The Powerpuff Girls and read Herman Hesse’s Demian before I dive into my attempt to discuss Revolutionary Girl Utena. So I’m busy. Have you some artwork I stole.
