An introduction my fandoms and why I love them. Also all my favourite couples. Beacuse I'm a hopeless romantic and fangirl, and just can't help myself. ;P
It’s hard to describe in words what Sailor Moon has meant for me over the years. It has played a part in almost every aspect of my life ever since I discovered the series back in 1996, and even more since I became a real moonie in 2001.
It has influenced my hobbies, as I started drawing seriously and also took up web design because of it, my sense of style is heavily influenced by she series' aesthetic, and most importantly: my values and outlook on life has changed for the better because of it. It's not just a manga and fandom for me, it's a lifestyle! It’s also my passion, biggest interest and inspiration in life.
Even though I got into manga because of Sailor Moon, everything I have read afterwards has paled in comparison. The reason I haven’t really had any other fandoms besides it (with the exception below) is because I haven’t had to, Sailor Moon has everything I’d ever wish for a series to have: strong female characters, magic, destined romance (both heterosexual and homosexual) and lots of humor.
It almost feels like the series was made for me. I know it's not a perfect story, but it's perfect for me and I’ll love it till the day I die!
My favourite to least favourite versions. My hands-down favourite version is the manga, which is also the version i base in my fanworks on, even though I take inspiration and elements from all of my top 4.
I like all of the versions for different reasons, but I only the first four incarnations speaks to my heart. 💕 Except for the manga, I apparently tend to prefer the live-action versions, for reasons I don’t know myself. l tend to prefer manga and drama over anime in general though… ^^’ (I actually haven't wathed the 90's anime in years...)

Just like with Sailor Moon, I'm a manga fan. I just think the story is better written and I like how it isn't as much of a Sailor Moon rip-off, with its own imagery and themes. Romance wise, I'm really glad how it omitted Takuro's (unnecessary) crush on Momoko and had him interested in Hinagiku from the start. And Dean Butler is much better love interest for Scarlett than Clark Oasis. The only thing I prefer in the anime version is Hinagiku's wedding dress...
Once again I'm a canon shipper, and it's even more evident with Wedding Peach as all the couples are 100 % established. They all get married in the end for god's sake!
- Wedding Peach X Viento
- Angel Lily X Limone
