Today, August 15th 2015, is International Sailor Moon Day. This event is not confined to any single city as many cities around the world are celebrating small Sailor Moon gatherings in their own cities. Check out the Sailor Moon Day web site or Facebook page to see if your city has anything planned. Put your best costume on and head out to have some fun with other fans.

  1. I wish I knew this was a thing! I would’ve celebrated years ago! As it is I’m in another country where apparently nothing’s happening, and even if there was it’s 5:30 in the afternoon, so I’ll probably start work on dinner soon. Otherwise, I’d go to the thing happening in my hometown, if I felt like I could make the trip and I could afford it.

  2. International Sailor Moon Day? On my birthday!? My favorite things to celebrate are Sailor Moon and my birthday. Surely this is fate :D

  3. sadly there’s nothing going on in my country… and I’m not at home either to celebrate…
    At least for this special occasion I started re-reading Sailor Moon manga :D

  4. This stuff is great, I didn’t even know yesterday was the International Sailor Moon Day ! But there was nothing in France, nothing in Paris where I live (and I think I would have learned about it if something had been planned)… I’m not even suprised, this is France and here, Sailor Moon remains but a well-known show for the kids that was aired in the 90’s. Even the SM fandom in France seems quite underground… I wish so hard I had been in London yesterday ^^ .

    Zéro pointé pour la France !!!

    • Yeah, that’s weird since Ross Island has no inhabitants, from what I’ve read on the French Wikipedia…

      But I’ve just found this :

      “Since both New Zealand and the US have their principal Antarctic stations on Ross Island, in summer it becomes a hub of activity, with science groups passing through on their way to field camps all over this side of the continent, and to the South Pole. It’s also the location of three famous historic huts, Mt Erebus and several penguin rookeries.” =>

      So this might explain why there is an ISMD on Ross Island, Antarctica XD .
