A Sailor Moon reference from the lastest episode of The Simpsons

Sailor Moon reference in The Simpsons - Kumiko as a Sailor Senshi and Comic Book Guy as The Stargate

Last week’s episode of The Simpsons, “Married to the Blob” which first aired January 12th 2014, contained a Sailor Moon reference! The episode’s plot revolved around Comic Book Guy falling in love with a Japanese woman named Kumiko. During a montage of them galavanting around town and falling in love the two of them are seen cosplaying at the Bi-Mon Sci-Fi Con. Kumiko is wearing a Sailor Moon inspired costume while Comic Book Guy is dressed as the Stargate. The costume does not look like that of any specific Sailor Soldier. It’s colours somewhat resemble Sailor Saturn or Sailor Mercury’s Sailor Fuku but the pigtails are clearly meant to be reminiscent of Sailor Moon’s, though they are black and not blonde. It’s unclear if this is meant to be an authentic costume of a show in The Simpsons universe which is simply Sailor Moon like or if Kumiko is wearing a costume of her original character based on the series Sailor Moon which would in that case fully exist in the Simpsons world.

The episode is riddled with comic and pop culture references including special guests Stan Lee and Harlan Ellison. In this same scene Kumiko even jumps through the Stargate and turns into a Wizard from Hogwarts from the Harry Potter franchise.
