Film Talk: Pretty Guardian Sailormoon, Act 8

Awwww. We’re not actually doing the Usagi is rabbit-shape Sailormoon is moon-shape? I am disappoint. I liked that idea.

Anyway! Last episode, Mamoru learned Sailormoon’s identity, I still can’t settle on spelling and names, Usagi learned that Motoki is not Tuxedo Mask, and the senshi are introduced to the Dark Kingdom. Or at least to Jadeite. Onwards! To spoils and spoilers!

Least favourite classic? Why?

A while ago — actually, a pretty long time in blogging and internet terms — Lynn from Lynn’s Books put up a classic book-themed meme. Since I was looking for questions to natter about at the time (you’re still more than welcome to ask them!), I decided to just nab the whole meme and work through the questions point by point. (Except for the time-specific ones like “What are you reading at the moment?” because scheduling that in advance is silly.)

Least favourite classic? Why?
