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.
This week we've decided to just keep going with Rainbow Crystal arc, even if it confuses/infuriates us. We do our best to analyze and make sense of this particular 90s plot device but end up with more questions. Meanwhile Lola considers becoming the kid in the DARE PSA we were all warned about.
We've returned to our usually scheduled Sailor Moon programming with some filler shenanigans! This time we are joined by voice actor, friend, and Sailor Moon novice: Chris Rickabaugh! We decided to start him off with episode 31 of the 90s anime, Loved and Chased: Luna's Worst Day Ever. Join us as we do our best to guide Chris through the extensive moonie mythos while also emphasizing the point that Bob Barker was right when he said spay and neuter your pets.

Kicking it old school once again! Going off the rails and on tangents, like always! We're back it: revisiting the anime of our early fandoms. Today it's The Vision of Escaflowne! If you're old like us, you might've caught this gem on FoxKids back in the day. This story rich anime is one of our favorites, even if we do have difficulty remembering all the details. We highly recommend it either way!
Get ready for a trip down memory lane if you're thirty-to-thirty-five-ish. The hilarious Joe Starr, writer of Honest Trailers and host of Flash and Friends on Screen Junkies, joins us to reminisce about simpler times when all the main characters were introduced in episode one and stated their intentions outright. We're talking about what was once known as Ronin Warriors in the U.S., possibly better known now by it's original title, Yoroiden Samurai Troopers thanks to its current availability on Crunchyroll. We also reference MANY other animted series from our childhood so good luck to anyone born after 1986. Or anyone who didn't get all the random first run syndication cartoons on their local UPN network.
It's here! Our uber-sparlky, full of happy Sailor Moon feels 100th episode! There's nostalgia! Giveaways! A dramatic fanfiction reading! And even an impromptu musical performance! But mostly there's a whole of love coming your way for supporting our lives podcast and making our lives brighter every day. Happy 100th episode. We love you.
By popular request – and just before our 100th episodes – we proudly present our episode on one of our collective favorite anime series, Revolutionary Girl Utena. Named "one of the most important anime series of the 90s" by Anime News Network, it's a beautiful mosaic of classic shoujo styling, takarazuka, shadow puppetry and a whole lotta symbolism. We barely scartch the surface in this 1.5 hour episode so don't be surpised if we revisit it somewhere along the road. Because revolutionizing the world is complicated and kind of like escaping the Matrix.
It's all fangirls all the time on this special Gundam Wing Edition of Love and Justice! (Yeah, we know, we're supposed to be a Sailor Moon podcast) Kelby and Emma delve REAL deep into their weeaboo backstories and reveal how they went from innocent, Mary Sue-writing baby Otaku, to Total Fujoshi Trash thanks to a series that was supposed to be about giant robots fighting a war. There really aren't too many spoilers for the series as a whole, so if you're in the process of watching Gundam Wing you needn't fear. And if you're not in the process of watching Gundam Wing GET ON IT because it's on Hulu now.
