It’s weekend’s even and that means GC livestream! 
http://www.livestream.com/gcsmgroup
For those of you new to us and wondering why we aren’t watching Sailor Moon, here’s a quick re-explanation!
GC livestream wants to branch out into other series that are related to Sailor Moon in some way!  Princess Tutu was created by Ikuko Itoh, best known for her animation direction work on Sailor Moon!  Princess Tutu is also a cute but quite dramatic magical girl series with fairy tale and ballet themes. You’ll recognize a lot of the music if you are familiar with ballet and classical music.  Princess Tutu also has similar themes that are in in Sailor Moon, mainly the concepts of fate and free will.
If you haven’t been keeping up with our stream, Hulu has Princess Tutu on there to watch for free!
And with that said… I hope to see you at the stream!

PGSM 30 Day Challenge
Day 2: Favorite character on your first run?

Ami Mizuno
I think that I’ve mentioned several times now how I relate to Ami. But especially so in PGSM. Seeing that image of her sitting alone on the rooftop eating her lunch on her own, I can relate so painfully. That’s pretty much what I did during my undergraduate years. Just this suffocating loneliness, and when she tried so hard to be more open and friendly in Act 5? I understand how hard it is intimately. It’s physically exhausting for me to have to be talkative or perky or be friendly to someone I’ve just met. I know how difficult it is to try and be someone I’m not. And so, of course, Ami and all her struggles stole my heart. Her devotion to Usagi, how she just values all these friendships she’s forged above all others… it’s all so heart-wrenching and just… let me hug you, Ami, because you’re the sweetest human being and nobody should ever, ever hurt you.

GC’s 30 Day PGSM Challenge!
Day 1: I remember first hearing and seeing clips of PGSM on the old Save Our Soldiers website (which saddly bashed it) when PGSM was announced in Japan and was starting to be released. I remember trying to download torrents of it back then, but it was harder to do that since torrents took much longer (slower internet connection) and i wasn’t allowed to let the computer run all night (family shared computer). I only watched a few episodes, rather enjoying what I saw. A year or so later, I found an ebay listing that was PGSM DvDs for $30 and i was like “OMG”. Unbeknownst to me, it was just someone taking a fansub and burning it onto DVDs… I still own them.They have hilarious translations too. If I can find the DVDs (they are somewhere… xD), I’ll have to post screenshots. Anyway, I watched it all back then and really enjoyed it, but wasn’t really hooked. I considered it my least favorite version of SM.Some years past and I start running the livestreams on the Galaxy Cauldron Forums and we do a PGSM rewatch and WELL got me hooked and realized just HOW good PGSM is. It is pretty much the best version of the Sailor Moon story. I can only find minor faults in it and people that complain about the “graphics” and “ballet-fu” obviously don’t know anything about Japan and Japanese tv show genres. PGSM belongs to what is known as tokusatsu. Everything in PGSM sets out to do what it’s supposed to and does it just fine. It’s not cheesy or bad. Its supposed to be like that because that genre is incredibly popular in Japan and its too be expected.Anyway, I think I went on a tangent there. So yeah, thats how I got introduced into PGSM. xDFun PGSM fact: the head writer of PGSM is also a head writer on Attack on Titan :D
Also I have to add, Miyuu Sawaii IS Usagi. Don’t you dare say otherwise! xD

Day 1: When were you first introduced to the live action (referred to as PGSM)?

Only as recently as last year. I’d seen gifs and pictures of it on Tumblr, and I was always weirded out by them. But one fateful night I decided to watch it for no reason at all (the PGSM goddesses told me to I guess) and I have never looked back since.

I wish the story of how I got into PGSM was more epic… but it really wasn’t. It was like one day I didn’t care for it and laughed at it and the next I did. I fell so hard. In my PGSM life, there are only extremes. Always.

Don’t worry, we fell hard too.

GC’s 30 Day PGSM Challenge:  Day 3
Favorite character now (after several rewatches, of course)?
Erm…well, I’ve actually only seen PGSM once time through, but hypothetically speaking, I could see myself adoring Ami.  She is just so sweet and innocent, and her outfits are absolutely adorable.  She learns so much about friendship, and she tries so hard to fit in and be a good friend to everyone.  Her backstory with her mother is so saddening, and I sort of love that.  Ami seems like the perfect, spoiled, intelligent rich kid, but in all honesty, she’s lonely.  She has a lot riding on her shoulders, but she doesn’t let that take away her ability to enjoy herself and be with her friends.  Ami goes through so much, and gets through it with a smile on her face.  She is inspirational and a role model to me, especially because our lives are so similar.  I just love everything about her :)

When were you first introduced to the live action (referred to as PGSM)?
Well, when I was younger and really into Sailor Moon, I would go on Youtube and just look up “Sailor Moon in real life” and all of this PGSM stuff would come up.  I would watch the PGSM transformations CONSTANTLY, because I just thought it was so cool.  So when I got older and re-entered my Sailor Moon phase, I remembered all of those cool videos I saw and decided to do a little more investigation.  I also had someone recommend it to me, I don’t remember who or from where, but that pushed me to watch it and AM I GLAD I DID!  PGSM was so amazing, and I would watch it every day if I could.  Just…the FEELS.
