This Month's Princess

Hello. Sorry for being so late with the update once again! I gathered and read the mail from July through September! (I'm reading all of it!) The one from farthest away was by a 13-year-old girl in the Republic of Tatarstan, Russia (thanks for your support!). The most popular in the three-month period were Jupiter and Chibi-Usa.

The delayed DVDs of R and later series, and the musicals, are scheduled to be released in order. Look forward to them. The hard-to-find original comics are also scheduled for release next year in shinsouban format.

And thank you very much for all the mail saying, "Do a new Sailor Moon series!"! I might not be able to do the serial anymore, but I'd certainly love to see the Sailor Team active on television. It might take time, but I'd love to be able to report some fresh news to all of you someday. I'll keep at it! I've got it! If you have ideas for what would be a good new story for a new Sailor Moon, do let me know.

My event this month is the second birthday of the little prince (my son). His present this year is a piano. I had decided on it half a year ago. I've also got the prince's Christmas present prepared. Of course I also got him Sanrio Purin-chan goods. (Right now the prince is going wild collecting rare Purin goods through auctions. And things like idol knives.)

Well then, let's meet again next month!

The TV series DVD box tried to imitate the package of my son's favorite "Oshiri Sukkiri Nagaseru Sheets".
