Well That Was Nice: The Sailor Moon Theme Performed With Traditional Japanese Instruments

July 27, 2018


This is a beautiful video of musicians Name Kineie, Eikiko Kumazawa, Makoto Takes, Luo Jun, and Masko Watanabe performing the Sailor Moon theme on traditional Japanese instruments. It was all very lovely and made me wish I was more musically talented. Unfortunately, the only instrument I know how to play IS THIS *pushing sleeve over shoulder* "Please no armpit music." But it's all I've got! "Sometimes it's better to have nothing than something." *pulling sleeve back down* Dammit, Confucius, you're right.

Keep going for the video (as well as the actual cartoon opening for reference) while I make a traditional Japanese music playlist to listen to for the rest of the afternoon.

Thanks to carey, who informed me she has a Sailor Moon duvet cover on her bed -- valuable information I plan on taking straight to the bank.

    The internet has ruined me for most anime. I keep waiting for it to turn into tentacle hentai futa stories and get deeply disappointed when it doesn't.

    I never understood the appeal of Sailor Moon.

    Or anime in general.

    the thing with anime is that it's broken up by general age groups. https://kotaku.com/how-to-i...

    I sort of get Sailor Moon from the perspective of it being a power fantasy kind of thing. Sailor Moon is a normal what-the-fuck-ever by day and a super-what-the-fuck-ever by night and some other shit happens.

    It had a pretty okay story.

    I really liked Excel Saga which is kind of a mockery of Sailor Moon to some extent where normal what-the-fuck-ever by day decides to work for some supervillain and she's extremely bad at it.

    The thing about anime is that it's really just Japanese cartoons and "anime" as a genre is kind of like "cartoons" as a genre.

    There are anime equivalents of basically ever cartoon ever.

    Sailor Mars was my favorite but I'm sure it's just the red skirt more than anything.
