When I was first informed of the re-make of my favorite childhood series, I was ecstatic. I was head over heels for all things Sailor Moon before it was even brought over to the West. I had the trading cards, artbooks, and basically anything I could get my hands on. I watched the anime but only a few episodes a month as they were difficult to get a hold of. I wanted to learn Japanese, so I can read the manga as they were released. I copied art from the artbooks and wanted to be a manga artist. Sailor Moon inspired me to draw and was my gateway drug to all things anime.
