Do you like female super heroes? The Japanese Wonder Woman trailer is out and it is narrated by none other than Kotono Mitsuishi, the Japanese voice of Sailor Moon in the original Sailor Moon anime and Sailor Moon Crystal! Watch the trailer below!
For years I’ve tried to argue that Sailor Moon is the most iconic female comic super hero! This was certainly true in the 90s when Sailor Moon was a worldwide phenomenon. Wonder Woman is the other obvious answer people give when asked who the most popular female comic book character is. I have no interest in detracting from her importance as a character but having been featured in one TV series 40 years ago and only in 2017 having her first theatrical film she has some catching up to do! Still when most people in the English speaking world hear “comic book super hero” they think of Superman, Batman, capes and tights, which brings Wonder Woman to mind.
The Wonder Woman film will be released on June 2nd in North America and August 25th in Japan. It stars Gal Gadot who will be reprising her role from the Batman v Superman movie from last year. I think she did a great job in the last film and am looking forward to seeing this film. It’s always great to see a film like this promoting women as being strong, independent and kicking ass.
If you’re a fan of Sailor Moon and Wonder Woman crossovers check out TeePublic to get a cool looking shirt for $14. It will also be on sale at Ript Apparel on Sunday March 26th for just $13. Don’t miss it!
Today, June 30th 2014, at Ript Apparel you can pick up two great looking Sailor Moon shirts for $10. Select Sailor Scout features Sailor Moon, Mars, Mercury and Jupiter in a character select screen reminiscent of old video games such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. There are actually already a bunch of Sailor Moon beat ‘em up games of that style which were made in the 90s. This screen is an original design, not one from one of those games. The second shirts is Lunar Express featuring Luna as the Cat Bus from My Neighbour Totoro which we’ve posted about on the site before.
Today’s Ript Apparel shirt, SailorPuff Girls, features Sailor Moon, Sailor Venus, Sailor Mars, Sailor Mercury and Sailor Jupiter drawn in the style of The Powerpuff Girls. This shirt is $10 today only, February 26th 2014. The shirt was previously sold at TeeFury, though the colours have been touched up and so unlike the previous shirt this version has brown hair and green eyes for Sailor Jupiter, instead of the original black hair and blue eyes which was criticized by some fans.
Today, November 18th, this Sailor Mars “Spirit of Fire” shirt will be available from Ript Apparel for $10. The shirt is done in an Art Nouveau style, as have many others in this series. The “Esprit du Feu” on the shirt are French for “Spirit of Fire”.
The cat is Luna from Sailor Moon taking the place of the cat from an old poster advertising “Le chat noir”, a French 19th century cabaret which had a touring troupe that advertised with this poster. The French writing on the shirt roughly translates to “Tour of the black cat from the moon”.
This great looking Sailor Venus art nouveau shirt will be available beginning at midnight on January 17th. The shirt will be $10 at Ript Apparel for one day only.
This shirt is designed by Eriphyle who previously designed many shirts including similar styled art nouveau Sailor Moon and Sailor Mars shirts. I have both those shirts and am quite happy with how they turned out. Check out Eriphyle’s web site and facebook page for more of her other art and to keep up to date with new stuff.
This shirt features not only Sailor Venus but also Sailor V as well as Artemis. The caption “L’amour et la beauté” is French for “Love and Beauty”. If you missed the 24 hour window you can order this shirt and others like it from this Redbubble store.
Tomorrow (as of this article being posted) this “We Can Punish It!” Sailor Moon themed t-shirt will be going up for sale for just $10 at Ript Apparel. This shirt will only be on sale for 24 hours after which time it will be gone … forever! I became aware of this sale through Ript Apparel’s newletter. This is confirmed in the ad shown above which is on the artist’s facebook page.
This shirt’s design was done by GoldenLegend. Here we have who are arguably Anime’s most prolific man and woman portraying North American comics’ counterparts. Check out more shirts by this artist in his Redbubble store. If you missed your chance to pick up this shirt or are looking for a different colour you can get it from Redbubble for the shirt’s full price.
Sailor Moon shirts sure are getting popular on these shirt a day sites, no doubt because Sailor Moon fans are happy to buy them. Today Ript Apparel have this lovely $10 Sailor Moon shirt showing Sailor Moon in an Art Nouveau style with the words “Au clair de lune” on it. This roughly translates to “By moonlight” which is the title of the shirt. This is likely a reference to “Fighting evil by moonlight”. “Au clair de la lune” happens to be a popular French folk song which, at least in my day, was something kids would sing a lot in kindergarten at French schools. As is always the case for these kind of deals the shirt is only available for a day, this one being September 15th. This leaves about 10 hours as of this posting.
