chibi-koun said: Whaaaaat but I totally said that during your stream how could you not remember every single thing I type during every stream. XD Those subs are completely amazing.

I wish people would stop going on about Usagi’s sex life. She had sex with Mamoru at the end of StarS manga for certain but nothing is certain before that. You can make out without having sex. How about we just have a heroine who represents ALL girls, including ones that hang out with their boyfriends without going all the way? We exist, too. Disney princesses may be virginal till marriage but superheroines? No, most aren’t virgins in their canon. Usagi wouldn’t be the first by a long shot.

Okay but just because a character exists that has had sex with her boyfriend before marriage doesn’t magically mean representation for the opposite doesn’t exist- it very much does.
You say you want a heroine who represents all girls, but then you are ignoring again the girls that do choose to have sex before marriage- and what’s more, you honestly seem to be shaming them for it  and their own choice and that is not okay. You are shaming them for choosing to have sex and being in control of their own sex life. They’ve decided that they’re ready for sex, and so they’ve made the choice to have it, and they are not worth less than girls who wait. Nor are girls who wait worth less than girls who have sex before marriage.
The big thing with Usagi and her sex life in the manga is that her entire character is based around the concept of “purity”. Society generally views purity as something that is lost the moment a girl has sex, and there are many narratives in which a girl with purity based powers loses them when she ceases to be a virgin- the meaning of these narratives is very clear.
Usagi doesn’t do this. It doesn’t happen with her. She has sex, and has full and complete control over her own sex life, but she doesn’t lose her powers and doesn’t become any less pure, therefore completely rejecting the purity myth that so many other forms of media perpetuate.
*That’s* why it’s fantastic, and that’s why people praise it. Nobody’s saying that she’s the first superheroine to have sex, but it is incredibly noteworthy that she’s a very purity correlated character who loses no aspect of this purity upon having sex.
You are completely misrepresenting a very powerful argument and narrative, and you really need to reexamine what people are actually saying in regards to Usagi and sex.

Viz will be handing out another exclusive Sailor Moon coin at Otakon! They’ll also have a tshirt & poster.
Can anyone going help me get the coin & tshirt? >3< I can trade with the silver AX coin! Please let me know!! ♥ ^_^

Omg why did I have to get married and have a family and have responsibilities? I JUST WANT GO TO CONVENTIONS

I can try to see if I can get you some of the items but I’m not sure how fast they’ll go, lol. I’m not going to the panel/autograph thing though and i think that’s the only way to get the poster but I could try for the t-shirt or coin thingy?

Wow, there’s so much of the plot of Napoleon I really didn’t get til now, thanks to Jess’ subtitles XD Things make so much more sense now! lol

Like omg, Murat designed his own uniform?? That’s fantastic XD

No, I’m looking at the same and actively hating on those prices, because good god. =W=
Yeeeaaaaah…lol Well I did have warning that this would happen so the prices don’t shock me. Its just debating on whether I should go through with it or not. Though I’m starting to think the extra price may be worth it just to have a somewhat better seat (since if I’m reading this right, only B-seki and standing is available for same day?) and well, peace of mind. lol Since its hard to plan everything else out and I’ll only be there like 2 days. This is also most likely a one-time thing for me since even if I do go back in the future, it won’t be for several more years at least since I need to figure out my life and use my money for actual important things soon.
How bad are the second hand ones for the day you want to go?
The site I’m looking at (the one zukarevue posted http://www.ticket.co.jp/sys/search.php?com=init&ki=13741&st=20140911) has a few S-Seki left going at like 20,000-27,000 yen right now. There’s a few B and A but they don’t seem worth it for the price. And they’re all for the 15:00 show. The 11:00 only has a few outrageously priced SS ones still up. I could go that Friday instead but so far I think those are a higher price.

Unless you know of another site I should be looking at. XD
I think if you try same day tickets on a weekday, you should be fine (if you show up early enough).
You think so? I’m just nervous since it will most likely be the very first show I see when I’m there and I’m not sure if I’ll get a chance to go over to the theater beforehand (worried I might get a little lost on the way). My hotel is in Osaka and I’m trying for a Thursday. There are 2 shows that day so do they do the same day tickets for both shows in the morning or is the later one later on?
So we all have the same problem, basically.
Pretty much. Don’t think I know of anyone who actually managed to get ones when they went up. lol But ugh the 2nd hand are so expensive and are going so quickly, I don’t know what to do. T_T

Hmm…

So do I want to try my luck with same day tickets for Elisabeth or just buy an overpriced 2nd hand one? I’m really not sure. While its more expensive and I hate giving money to what is basically scalping, it might be less stressful to just have a ticket ahead of time and the A and B seki tickets aren’t too bad of a price from what I’ve seen…
