The Sailor Moon anime turned 20 on March 7th of this year and to celebrate this milestone Nico Nico will be holding a live event which will include announcement of a “special surprise project” . Attending from Japan will be Sailor Moon anime voice actors Kotono Mitsuishi (voice of Sailor Moon) and Toru Furuya (voice of Tuxedo Mask) as well as Fumio Osano, the editor for many of Naoko Takeuchi’s manga who she refers to as “Osa-P” in liner notes. Also appearing from France will be the music group Momoiro Clover Z who’s colourful look is very reminiscent of the Sailor Team.

The event will take place on Friday July 6th at 7:30pm local Japanese time, 6:30am Eastern Standard Time. Though the event will be streamed online it would appear a paid membership is needed.

The Powet Top 5 – Pokémon

Welcome to the Powet Top 5, where we explore the top (and bottom) 5 items we think are relevant to any of a variety of topics that span the imagination. Sit back, read, and respond.

Top 5 favourite Pokémon who's that Pokémon - Jigglypuff, Psyduck, Magikarp and Caterpie

Pokemon! There are over 150, as the Pokérap tells us. It’s been a long time since that original set over 15 years ago. These days there are 648. Here I find myself tasked with distilling this list down to 5. Naturally with such a huge sample, everyone will have their preference. Narrowing it down a team of 6 is hard enough! If I wanted to be fair I could pick a Pokémon from each generation and fill out the list, but I’m hardly fair. I’m a biased human who remembers the best of times from my day and resents all this new stuff, so as far as my list is concerned there might as well be 150! Despite my love of the games and all the time I put into them over the years it seems my choices are highly influenced by what I saw in the anime, which was a great show up until Tracey showed up and then it was lame. With that, here are my Top 5 Pokémon. Feel free to share your own.

Terri Hawkes, voice of Sailor Moon, at Florida Anime Experience

Terri Hawkes voice of Sailor Moon at Florida anime experience

Terri Hawkes, the English voice of Sailor Moon, was recently a guest at the Florida Anime Experience, her first anime conversion. She talked a bit about her experience and then fielded a number of questions about her time on Sailor Moon.

Amongst other things in this panel Terri talks about jobs she did with Tracy Moore, fighting the Negaverse, her favourite episode to record and dodges a question about which Sailor Scout is her favourite.

Terri Hawkes was the second voice of Sailor Moon, following a few episodes recorded by Tracey Moore. She voiced the majority of the first two seasons of the dub so she’s likely the voice most fans associate with the character, besides the original Japanese voice of course. In later seasons Linda Ballantyne provided Sailor Moon’s voice.

Check out Sailor Moon Obsession for more about this panel and the convention.

The Powet Top 5 – Best Sailor Moon episodes

Welcome to the Powet Top 5, where we explore the top (and bottom) 5 items we think are relevant to any of a variety of topics that span the imagination. Sit back, read, and respond

Sailor Moon episode 45 - Sailor Moon mourns her friends' deaths and is touched by the ghost of Sailor Jupiter

Sailor Moon is, in my opinion, the greatest series of all time. With that being said, what’s the best of the best? Sailor Moon at it’s best was epic, emotional, exciting and often hilarious. Picking my 5 favourites isn’t easy. I tried to put a little variety in here so I selected from different seasons and chose different kinds of episodes. I hope you like my choices, and I also hope you share your own list of favourite episodes in the comments.

Samurai Pizza Cats coming to DVD

The Samurai Pizza Cats Polly Ester, Speedy Cerviche and Guido Anchovy

Discotek Media has made an announcement on their facebook page that the complete Samurai Pizza Cats animated series will be coming to DVD soon, with separate releases for both the English dubbed version and subtitled Japanese version. Pricing and a specific release date have not yet been announced.

Samurai Pizza Cats - Bad Bird marrying Princess Vi

This is great news for fans who have been waiting to see this series again for years, and who have never had the pleasure of seeing the original Japanese show, Cat Ninja Legend Teyandee. Now all of you will need to make that difficult decision of whether to buy the series subbed or dubbed. Surely, many anime fans prefer to watch shows in their original language as was originally intended, but with shows from this era, and Samurai Pizza Cats more than most others, a lot of new dialog was added to the dub. This is a comedy series, and the humour in each language is distinctly different, including many added jokes in the dub version that we have all come to know and love.

Thanks to Raptor Thomas for letting us know about this news.
