My Next Scheme Of Trying To Make An Original Site!
So, I was siting back; breathing and thinking and whatever. You know, stuff like that. I starting thinking about this site (and my devotion to Sailor Moon!) and was thinking what would be great for this site? And I figured there was only one thing never done on any other site before: an interview. Yeah sure, tons of people have interviewed the seyiuu people and Naoko like all the time. but has anyone ever really interviewed, say, a random person off the street? Well, I wasn't about to do that but why not family or a friend?
Me, doing that thinking thing, thought it was a great idea. Actually, I was thinking of one friend in particular who knows quite a bit of Sailor Moon herself. I figured we could sit back, watch Promise of a Rose, drink some Pepsi, and have a nice mature interview. Then I deceided to wander into my brother's rrom and borrow a CD.
I love my brother. He's smart and likes bagel chips and the Yankees. But, he is an absolute clueless fool when it comes to Sailor Moon. So I went and grabbed my CD of choice and we were chatting about the concept of an interview on the site. He said it sounded good and all, and he's a smart guy. So I asked him:
"You wanna be interviewed?"
His responce: "Huh?"

He eventually agreed after several threats I MEAN pleas. So I took out a tape recorder and started the interview.
Before this interview, I asked him what he wanted his alias to be. It went in this evolution:
"Johnny Fro to Johnathan Fro to Johnathan to Jon to J.F." So, on March 30, 2002, the fateful interview between my self (Azimel) and J.F. began...

  How It Worked... Divided up into several parts, the interview had several key points which will be lead by headings. This interview was done via a tape recording so any sort of laughter in backround comments are explained now. In the beginning, I had to make sure my tape recorder was working...(A=Azimel {me} and JF=J.F.)

JF: Dude.
A: Dude?
JF: Dude.
A: Dude?

A: Yeah, well, do you wanna reminisence on that a little?

JF: Yeah, well, convince me to go on!
A: Convince you? I'll beat you up if you don't! (I didn't really beat him up, we just argued a bit. My obligation as Older Sister is to threaten him a bit every now and know. Keep him on his toes.)

So that was the spaztic interview. I'll take his e-mail off my site so he isn't harrassed anymore. :D Our parting note will be from 'Johnny Fro' himself, on his opnion on the interview:
"Oh geez, you're actually gonna put this on the site? Geez, I am gonna sound like SUCH a moron..."

Did the interviews go that badly??? {Notice, even the star has a sweatdrop!!! :D}

I couldn't resist. I had to ask someone who REALLY knows something about Sailor Moon to talk to me. So, I went with my first choice: Spacey, my (not really) sis! It was scary, I wasn't sure how to interview her knowing she actually is a SM fan too. Since I did the interview months ago and not on a tape, I wrote down quick answers. I'm sorry if the true humor of the situation isn't all there, but believe me...there was laughing all the way through...
{A=Azimel, S=Spacey}

Well, the setting: I went to a sleepover at her house. We went outside and sat on a swinging bench. I had my notebook and was trying desperately not to show her the questions. The interview started well before sunset but when it ended it was dark outside. Lots of too much laughter was involved in this interview.

Getting Back to the Basics:

A: What is Sailor Moon? In Your Own Words
S: A cartoon about a ditz and WAIT! Sailor Moon is tha almighty symbol of hope and love and hope and love and hope and...optimism. Serena loves her friends, nature, and everyone. She can see the light. ^^
A: Which is your favorite episode?
S: I don't have a definite favorite.
A: How about moment or "saga?"
S: It's definitly the whole Mistress 9 and Sailor Saturn thing. The whole story behind that, especially when she dies to save everyone and comes back chibi.
A: Do you consider yourself a fan or fanatic?
S: *thinks deeply* FANATIC! *laughs* Why do you think they call me SPACEY??!?! Who else is in space? Sailor Moon!
A: Which is you favorite movie (in SM)
S: Well, probably Black Dream Hole, my favorite part being when they are all chibi and when Sailor Moon gets hit by that metal ring! I like the end of Promise of the Rose too.
A: How did you become a fan?
S: I dunno, because Maybe it was a Pokemon connection (?)
A: Why do you like Sailor Moon? (the series or comic)
S: It's fun! It's really fun and silly. All the characters have their own "thing." Also, there's Sailor Saturn...
A: What pisses you off the most about Sailor Moon?
S: *this is obvisiously a big issue she's been wanting to talk about for quite awhile. She gestures wildly to convey her emotion* The diffrence between the manga and the anime, or the US (dub) and the original Japanese changes! Plus it doesn't come fast enough (this was during a time when SM was off the air. She's talking about that)
A: What was the one thing you heard someone else say about SM that got you mad?
S: When people say it sucks and those idiots who watch it for hentai.

How Big of a Fan AREYou???

A: On a scale of 1-10, what would you say on how big of a fan are you?
S: Probably an eight. Not complete fanatic cause I don't buy EVERYTHING Sailor Moon.
A: Would you go to an anime convention?
S: yes
A: Would you go dressed up as a character?
S: yes
A: Tape all the episodes?
S: Yes, given the chance to.
A: Obtain all the comics...dubbed or original Japanese?
S: Yes, both original and dub!
A: Go to Canada to go get the soundtracts released only there and not the US?
S: Sure, point me in the right direction.
A: Watch another cartoon or show knowing the seyiuu actor/ress as in it?
S: Sure, I already did with Braceface. (yes, one of the scouts voices is in Braceface, take a guess at who ^^)

Picking Only the Best

Here I asked Spacey to pick between the choices I gave her
A: Best Term? Senshi or Scout?
S: senshi
A: Better Term? Fuku or uniform?
S: fuku
Better Character? Serena or Usagi?
S: Usagi
A: Better Choice? Anime or Manga?
S: Manga
A: Better Attack? Kamehamaya or Moon Tiara?
S: Moon Tiara
A: Who Would Win? Saturn or Pluto?
S: Saturn!
A: Better guy? Trunks or Mamoru?
A: Better Darien? Boyfriend of Serena, Moonlight Knight, Future King Darien, Tuxedo Mask, or Evil Prince Darien?
S: *thinks* uhhh...I hate them all
A: Better Gal? Michiru or Haruka?
S: Well, Michiru is lipstick and Haruka is butch...I can't pick, I like them both.
A: Cooler Mom? Queen Selenity of the Old Moon Kingdom or Mrs. Tuskino?
S: Mrs. Tuskino...she's a little bit ditzy
A: Better Talking Cat? Salem (from Sabrina), Pwar (from DBZ), or Luna?
S: Salem irrates me...definely LUNA
A: Better Band? Sailor Stars or NSYNC?{TM}
S: duh, Stars
A: Better Ride? Darien's convertible or Amara's motorcycle?
S: Motorcycle all the way
A: Sadder Moment? Destruction of the Moon Kingdom or when the scouts encounter Crystal Tokyo and learn of it's story?
S: (after I gave her a brief description of both) Oh god, the Moon Kingdom one. That's really sad...
A: Okay. last one. Bigger Boom? When that Helicopter blew up with the Outer Scouts inside it or the destruction of Queen Beryl when she's possessed by Metallia?
S: Queen Beryl's destruction.

Improving Sailor Moon?

A: What is your ideal fan fict? What happens, who's in it?
We had to keep coming back to this question because she had so many ideas but wasn't really sure how to put them in a fict
S: Well, one with the marriage of Usagi and Mamoru for one. Another would be with Hotaru and Chibiusa when they are older. Sort of a "what happens now?" or how life and being a scout for so long effects her life.
A: Otaku senshi? Who, powers, fuku, hair?
S: Probably my version of Sailor Saturn (before we saw the outer senshi, we would go and see what they really looked like but took guesses at it. Both me and her drew our own versions of the Outer scouts. Neither of us was even close to the real thing). Damn, this is a hard question. Well, the character would be a bit of a mix of Saturn's personality and Sailor Moon's importance...ugh, can we come back to this later?
A: If you could take one character from any other anime, animation, TV show, whatever, and put them in SM, who, why, how?
S: *gets hyper abou question* See, it's Trunks and Frieza. Trunks because I wanna see how Serena acts around him and Frieza because he would lok so out of place. It would be funny as hell.
A: You're making a live action SM movie. What's it about? Who are the actresses?
S: It would be about the StarS Saga. niece would play Chibi Chibi can be Raye...I would play Sailor Moon or Princess Kakyuu...
A: Ever notice how many characters die or leave in Sailor Moon? Who wpuld you bring back? Why?
S: It's that vaccuum cleaner youma. It was so stupid. Also, I want more of Sammy or even better: Helios would come back. I want to see Helios and Chibiusa interaction.
A: Likewise, you get the chance to kill off one Sailor Moon Character? Who? Why?
S: Sometimes I wish anime Serena was dead. Oh yeah, and the dubbers must die too. I didn't like Mistress 9 or Wicked Lady...I hated her...
A: You can improve one character in Sailor Moon. Who? How?
S: Amy in the manga I feel didn't mature quite enough like the other scouts. Also, Darien in the anime doesn't appeal to me, he isn't interesting enough to me..I dunno. Maybe if you hear more about him when it doesn't involve Serena.


All of the following question began with "why?" I don't write it because it's implied

A: ...does Reenie have pink hair and red eyes?
S: Uhh...uhh...she was born with lots of love. (this gets an "aww" from me to which Spacey replies with a laugh and a "shut up.")
A: ...did the Silver Crystal get created from a tear from Serena?
S: Because she was losing hope and that tear symbolized her hopes and dreams
A: ...wasn't there a SM/DBZ crossover episode?
S: Because SM is like soft anime but DBZ is "hard" anime. I think that's the only reason seperating them.
A: ...weren't there more people freakin out when Rubeus landed that UFO in the middle of Tokyo?
S: Well...he...he...made all their necks broken so they could only look at the ground and...and...(I fell off of where I was sitting I was laughing so hard)...and...they couldn't look up so...OH SHUT UP ^^!
A: Helios's animal form a Pegasus?
S: Because of Chibiusa's age, she would relate well to a Pegasus
A: ...don't we know who Usagi's father was in the Old Moon Kingdom?
S: I like to think that a really high power...not a God but something close...just made her? I'm not really sure
A: ...does Professor Tomoe laugh so much?
S: Because of the thing possessing him is laughing at the crazy things it makes him do
A: Why doesn't anyone recongize the scouts? I mean, come on! It's not hard to figure it out!
S: It's just one of their powers like that.

Final Thoughts

A: Who is your favorite senshi?
S: Saturn and Moon
A: Least favorite?
S: Ami
A: Who gets too much hype? Good or bad?
S: Amy and the thing with that guy
A: If you could be one of the senshi, who and why?
S: Saturn, I love the depth of her character
A: Who your favorite villain?
S: The Amazon Quartet and Birdy & Prisma of the Black Moon
A: Least favorite or annoying?
S: Wickey Lady was my least favorite. Those stupid monsters like the vaccuum and the car droids were irratating
A: Got way too much air time?
S: Serena, not so much her but that the other scouts don't get as much
A: Which villain would you be?
S: Para-Para. She was just funny and silly, plus I like the whole inner "good-bad" thing that you see in the manga.
A: If you could see more of one character, who?
S: Saturn
A: Funny Sailor Moon moments and Scary ones. Tell me
S: Seiya and Serena screaming on their date; Serena drunk, the Bon-Bon babies; Michelle's comments to Amara. Scary would be Tomoe's deciding Hotaru's fate
A: Who's most likely to go insane in future years?
S: Probably Hotaru in an emotional breakdown.
A: If you can ask Naoko, the creator, one thing, what would it be?
S: Can I have a collection of signed manga? Would you like to come over for a sleep over? Just so I can ask you random questions? Can I live with you for a little while?
A: I think that's cheating...I said one...
S: I know

A: And most finally: the SM commercial for the dolls. You know the one. The girls and the cheap dolls and the bad acting. Don't cha just want to shoot them?
S: yeah
