A Few Quick, Yet Interesting Sailor Moon News References!

Sometimes, we run across small references in news stories that are best described in one sentence. And though in the past we’ve stretched these references and done full posts on them, it’s a little time consuming, especially if the reader is going to go ahead and read the article anyway. So, we’re going to post these stories in a different format and try this out for a few weeks. This is only going to be done for articles in English – but those in Japanese (or if in rare instances, French), will be summarized and/or translated. If our readers have any suggestions or comments about this new format, please let us know by sending us an email – our address is posted at the bottom of this page.
