Let’s distract ourselves with something weird. ZZZnoZ ~Nemuri-chan to Oyasumi~ (ZZZのZ ~ねむりちゃんとおやすみ~) is a new manga series focusing on how to get a good sleep. ^_^ A hardworking, poor sleeper woman meets another woman who falls asleep easily. Comic Natalie tells us it has a little light Yuri. Okay~~~
Yagate Kimi ni Naru, Volume 3 (やがて君になる) has a release date in Japan at the end of this month.
At last night’s Moonlight Party by Viz (which was exactly as excruciating as I expected,) we finally got dub clips of the Sailor Moon S season. I’m pleased to say that the voices for Haruka and Michiru sounded great. Erica Mendez will be a fine Haruka. (I still wish that after 20 years, American VAs would figure out how to pronounce things.)
Viz also announced the release of Sailor Moon R Movie – check out the ANN report for details. While Sailor Moon R isn’t Yuri at all, it did give us “Moon Revenge,” which is a great song. ^_^
I also shared a bunch of pictures of my Sailor Moon goods collection on Twitter, which you can see here. ^_^ It was nice to revisit some of the items.
Live-action Saki is actually a thing. ^_^ I keep thinking it’s a joke, somehow. Here’s some early visuals, via ANN.
I’m not going to lie, this week has been hard for many of us. So many of us are abjectly terrified and not just for ourselves, but for others we know, and the planet itself.
A friend, Claire Monserrat Jackson, developed a concept that will be a key component of me remaining sane in the upcoming year – Keepsgiving. Keepsgiving takes Thanksgiving beyond just giving thanks to giving what we can to actively help one another. I began by setting up recurring donations to Planned Parenthood, since the threat to women’s health has never been so high. I’m going to give to groups like GLSEN, Lambda Legal, NAACP, and to local food banks. You can let folks know you support your local library, or how they can enjoy national parks…anything. It doesn’t have to be anything major. No commitment needed. Here is a list of pro-women, pro-immigrant, pro-earth organizations for you to consider donating to or volunteering with
If you’d like to participate in Keepsgiving, just pop over to the Keepsgiving page on Facebook and share your act of kindness. Let’s Keep Giving. We need each other more than ever.
