Yes, I am still alive!! I haven't updated in a long time due to some real life stuff going on... we bought a new house, among other things! How exciting is that?? Anyway, there has been a lot of news that I didn't want to neglect, so this is basically a news update. Expect a large content update some time in the next week... I have lots of things planned (and have already started working on many of them!)

Sailor Moon News


There's some pretty big Sailor Moon news going on lately! The Japanese and international rights to Sailor Moon have been frozen for quite some time now, which is why products are out of print and Sailor Moon no longer airs on television. Well, word in the Genvid forums is that Sailor Moon will soon be re-airing in Italy!! An Italian member of the forum wrote that a recent post on Italian forum Anime Fun, cites an interview where Fabrizio Margaria from Mediaste Italy confirmed that the rights had been released and that the show would air again in 2010. This is pretty exciting news, but should we take it with a grain of salt? At this time, the only reports of this comment are on forums. The Moon Chase blog makes an excellent point that the rumors are pretty much unconfirmed at this point.

In the words of our dearly departed Billy Mays: But wait, there's more! According to this Japanese press release, Sailor Moon will be airing on the Japanese Animax Channel (which is partially owned by Toei) beginning on Mondays at 4:00 PM in September!!! Kotono Mitsuishi, Sailor Moon's seiyuu, also made a special appearance at a Tokyo press conference to announce this exciting news. You can find more information here, here, and here.

Brad from my affiliate site MoonKitty.net has pointed out this press release from Toei introducing a new mobile-only website for Sailor Moon!! The site currently offers animated downloads and mobile ring tones, but will soon be offering all 200 episodes for free download to phones. Unfortunately for North American fans, the site is only for cell phone users in Japan. However, if you have that access, check it out at http://www.smoon.jp!

Long time, no see! I've made a few small updates and a few large ones, plus I have more in the works! Let's start off with the bigger updates...

I've recently been working a lot on adding a new interviews section. I thought it would be beneficial to post and archive of various Sailor Moon-related interviews all in one place before they disappear from the web forever, and are lost in oblivion. For that reason, although I have given credit and shown sources for the interviews, I had to post a few of them here without permission from the original people who posted them on the 'net. For many of them, there was no way to get in contact with the original poster (for example, the website closed). For others, I simply never heard back when I emailed the original poster. But I've made efforts to give credit where credit is due. I hope that this will be a useful feature on this site; these interviews are so scattered and I don't want them to be lost forever!

Moving on, I added two new splash pages from the official Sailor Moon website, Sailor Moon Channel. It seems that the new trend is for using older color manga pictures rather than new illustrations. The splash page for May shows this picture from Artbook IV (scroll down to see the part that is used; this is a two-part image!). The splash page for June uses this cute image, also from Artbook IV. I miss seeing the new illustrations, but it's nice to see a revival of the fantastic older work!!

For my smaller updates, I updated the shopping guide and some minor typos and things. Episode 115's images were not working properly, but were updated so they appear fine now. Thanks Sui for telling me! I also improved the search function a little bit (see the navigation bar on the left to search the site). I hope that having the ability to search the site has helped you use The Oracle and find everything you need!

I have been very busy lately with site updates!! Some of them are more noticeable than others, of course. For my content updates, I've added 13 new desktop wallpapers and 2 new SM Channel Splash Pages for March and April 2009.

Most of my updates have been most on the "administrative" side. As you can see, I've revamped the layout. Now that it's spring, I wanted something more colorful! It's also a tad wider, so I can fit more information in on your screen. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

You'll also notice that there are more ads on this site. I decided that additional ad revenue will really help me out with hosting costs and everything (it's pretty expensive to maintain all the content on this site with the amount of visitors I have). They are pretty unobtrusive, so they shouldn't bother you. In fact, I have found that the ads for Sailor Moon content are really great!! There are several places I had no idea existed until I saw them on the ads. Tons of great shopping places where you can get great deals. I have really been amazed by how good the ads are.

The main thing that's changed is that I've moved to a new host. My old host wasn't very good, and I felt like I was being overcharged for the service they were providing. Well, now I've fully moved this site to LunarPages. I have had a secondary account with them for a while, and they are just wonderful. They are so easy to work with, have friendly and quick service, and most of all have affordable hosting plans with all the bells and whistles! I just love them. Their basic plan is just $4.95 per month, offers a free domain, and unlimited storage and bandwidth. It just doesn't get better than that, folks!! I definitely recommend them if you are looking for hosting.

Happy New Year, everyone!!! This is the first update of 2009, and it's a pretty big one!

I have been working on episode summaries a lot lately. I recently added summaries for episodes 051, 052, and 053... and I'm working on the next episode right now! Hopefully I can finish that up soon. I also added 8 new screencaps of episode 051, when the Cutie Moon Rod appears. Of course, episode summaries mean that I've updated lots of related pages as well! Here's a comprehensive list of pages I added or updated:

I have also updated my shopping guide to add a new place for purchasing manga: Animaxis. This site was referred to me by Nana. Check out the Shopping Guide for more information!

My very active affiliate site, MoonKitty.net, has updated its gallery of splash pages from Sailor Moon Channel (the official Sailor Moon website). This inspired me to update my own gallery of splash pages. I am always saving them onto my computer whenever the page updates (plus I had a donation in November from a forum member), but I never get around to updating my gallery! So I've added 10 new images to the splash page gallery. If you want to read translations of the Sailor Moon Channel updates and more, you should definitely visit MoonKitty.net. The site owner, Brad, has provided a ton of very cool information in recent updates!

I've got a new affiliate! I'd like to welcome Snowdrop, my newest affie! Snowdrop is one of my favorite sites. The layout is very cute, so it's definitely easy on the eyes! Besides that, it has a great info section, as well as tons of media including awesome graphics and manga downloads. I hope you'll check it out if you haven't already!

Since I've been writing summaries of the Sailor Moon R episodes with Cardians, I wanted to share something really cool that I've found. SailorVGame.org has a set of cards for download that look exactly like Ail & An's Cardian cards. They were drawn on the computer, and they are exact replicas. The cool thing about these is that you can download them, print them out on card stock paper, and have your very own set of cards! I was really impressed by these drawings, and I know you will be too.

I've also added some new links to the links page:

I haven't updated in a while, but I haven't forgotten about this site! I've just been very busy lately with the holidays and everything. We also did some traveling around Thanksgiving, so it's been very hectic! Today, I fairly extensively updated the entire links page. I removed all of the buttons because they just seemed to make the page load slower, and they looked pretty disorganized. Besides that, they were kind of hard for me to keep track of! So the page looks different now, and it also includes more links. I had to remove a few, but I added many more! I've made a complete list of changes below. I also updated the link swap page to include a convenient form. If you want your page's link to appear, just use the form to contact me!

It's been a while since the last update, but I promise I haven't forgotten about this website! I've just been very busy. Today, I added the summaries of episode 048, episode 049, and episode 050! I've also started adding cast lists to the episode pages, and will continue to do so for episode. At some point, I will also go back and add the cast lists for episodes that I have already summarized. Several pages have been updated as well, so here's a long list of those:

UPDATED PAGES:
Ail
An
Cardian
Falion
Hell Ant
Juuban General Hospital
Mikan Shiratori
Minotauron
Moon Stick
Moonlight Knight
Shinozaki
TV Ashita
Virtual Reality Theater

Tiny updates here and there....


Did you notice... that I've changed around the "Did you notice?" (DYN) pages? Each episode used to have its own DYN page, but now I've moved those directly to the episode summary page, along with cast lists for each episode. I'm trying to consolidate and put more info on one page... which means less clicking around for users. I've also updated the DYN sections for episode 042, episode 048, and episode 050.

There is a new section on the menu for items. This is section is very small right now and is certainly not complete, but I will be adding more to it in the future. Another tiny update that you may not have noticed: I changed the links for the PGSM MP3s so that they now point to queenserenity.org. Again, this is small update, but something that needs to be noted in order to avoid any confusion!

I've already got a few more things in the works, so I hope to update again soon!
