Happy Halloween one and all! At last the saga of the Dracula myus has finally come to a close with this episode's coverage of the myu Last Dracul Saishuu Shou. We're not quite sure what happened in this one. Mandrake siblings, tiny werewolf babies, and a triangle box that is a prison sometimes but not all the time raise a lot of questions. But we do our best to put our heads together and figure it out. Not too sure if the mystery of the triangle box will ever be solved though. Stay safe and spoopy out there, you crazy kids!
It's been a while but the L&J crew is back to close out the Nehelenia arc of Stars! That's episodes 171 and 172. While we enjoyed this arc overall we're a little fuzzy on Nehelenia's origin as well as the ending. Was it a dream? Is it a parallel universe? Who knows! But all that aside, it is undeniable how badass the senshi are, especially Hotaru. Get you some, you adorable murder machine!

We're talking episodes 169 and 170 of the 90s anime, AKA episodes 3 & 4 of Sailor Stars, AKA two of the BEST episodes of the 90s anime. Especially episode 169, which is a beauitfully contructed horror story of the psychological thriller variety. Though Mercury and Uranus's unlikely partnership in epiosde 170 provides some really nice character development for the latter, making for a compelling and satisfying viewing experience.
We're back!! And we're cutting through all the fat and getting right into what many (many being we) consider to be some of the best episodes every churned out by the 90s anime - episodes 1 & 2 of Sailor Stars, AKA episodes 167 & 168 overall, AKA "oh crap, we forgot to put the Outer Senshi in Sailor Moon S. We finally solve the mystery of babies in clown pajamas, theorize that Uranus and Neptune have, in fact, just been hanging in this aquarium for the past year and are confused as to why litrally NO ONE is alarmed that Sailor Pluto, who was last seen dying in an exploding helicopter is suddenly alive again.
Our personal Cosplay Idol Jessie Pridemore joins us this week to share tales of the struggles of being a weeaboo back in the late 1990s. In addition to her totally endearing cosplay origin tale, which is 100% Sailor Moon related, she talks about branching out from the Star Wars Expanded Universe into the weird, wonderful world of manga, the life changing power of Battle Angel Alita, and the trouble with animated adaptations of CLAMP.
It's round 2 of our in-depth moonie interview series. This time we are joined by the talented Ashley Robinson. Ashley hails from the Great White North (Canada), where the 90s dub originated so we get a whole new perspective on early anime, or Japanimation, consumption. Be it in the basement of a comic book store or the perfect high school locker heist, the moonie love is strong.

We're launching a brand new type of episode to help fill the void until Sailor Moon Crystal [eventually] returns. Kicking off our long form interview series is Malika Lim, indie game developer and Twitch streamer extraordinaire, who you might recognize today from her many streaming sessions on Hyper RPG. But if you were living in Florida circa 2005, you might recognize her from a local newspaper article highlighting her work, and that of her best friends, on a Sailor Moon inspired student film project. Her tales of using a Lazy Susan to create spinning motions in transformation sequences, early Avid hacks, and creating animations in MS paint will warm your heart and make you feel like you can go forth and achieve your dreams.
