THE END IS NEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Okay, maybe not. But the world of Sailormoon? Possibly.
You've seen the signs. On of the biggest ones are huge,
wonderful Sailormoon web sites
coming to an end. Why? Because the creators just "aren't
interested anymore", or they've
"moved onto other things".
And I wonder "How dare they?!" I'll admit, Sailormoon has
ended, but I'm a true,
dedicated fan of SM, and I still enjoy watching it. Since I
didn't have cable, and I
remember *begging* friends for tapes of the DiC dubbed
Sailor Moon, that were
recorded from television, and practically squealing my head
off every time I got to
see a new show. I remember getting so pissed off at how
they didn't finish dubbing
the entire series, that I nearly tore the walls down of my
house. I remember sneaking
away at the supermarket, just to buy a bunch of Sailormoon
trading cards. I remember
trying to obtain every single thing related to Sailormoon;
articles, clippings, dolls
and any other type of merchandise.
I remember how Sailormoon could make me laugh one moment or
cry the very next.
I remember how I felt when I watched Sailormoon, and how I
could forget everything else in the entire world, and be temporarily caught
in a world of princesses and
princes; a world of magic, romance, and of course, a world
Don't YOU remember?
It is likely that the world of Sailormoon is indeed coming
to an end. Why? I think
the main reason is that people have just stopped watching
it, and have started
watching other types of anime. And I think that's great, to
broaden your interests of
anime, but to abandon Sailormoon entirely? I know I will
NEVER abandon Sailormoon entirely, I owe Sailormoon a lot, and I'll never
And what if you say to yourself, "But I just don't like
Sailormoon anymore." Well,
why don't you start watching it again? I know that I
thought I didn't like Sailormoon
at first, that is until I actually started watching the
show, then I really got into it,
and couldn't stop. I'll bet that once you begin to watch
one show again, you'll be hooked.
Especially on the internet, who knows what could happen to
the world or SM? With
the presumed possibility of the Y2K bug, the 'world' could
actually end. But I see that
as a chance to start over, the begin again, with a fresh
new start. If you do think your
sick of maintaining a SM web site, why not begin again? Go
ahead, delete everything,
and go back to the beginning, start with the DiC dub, and
bring yourself back to a much
simpler world. Start a new web page, one that's simple and
small so you'll be at ease.
Or you can always split-up your web site, and give it to
others to maintain. But what
I'm trying to say the most is DON'T GIVE UP!!
In the future, I hope that there will still be SM on the
internet. And I'll know that
I'm going to do everything I can in order to keep my SM
page up, even if it'll just be
there to remind people of the forgotten past. I want to
share Sailormoon with those
that will be younger than me. I want to share the feeling
of joy, happiness, sorrow and
laughter that I received from Sailormoon. I know that SM
can be re-discovered, if not
by us, then by a younger generation. Don't take away that
chance for them.
No, Sailormoon will never be forgotten in my mind and
heart, and I wish the same
for all of you out there.
