That's exciting and pretty cool! I wonder why ViVi is the magazine that does all of the collabs though? Is it because of parent company, or target audience?

I also cannot wait for the cries of sexism.

If it's for a women's magazine, it makes sense, I guess (still, I don't think gender should matter in this sort of situation).

Heh, they don't want it to become a mostly male sausage-fest. Laughing

Usagi's birthday is June 30th?

Apparently, I share the same birth date as Sailor Moon herself.

.....Huh. Neutral

Misandry! Misandry, I say!

Wait, let me put my fedora featuring a Twilight Sparkle sticker on first. There we go.

Misandry!

Not that big of a deal, really, since their moms would be driving them there anyway. They may as well attend with their sons, right?

Like are they going to only check peoples IDs? So if I was in Japan could I dress up in drag and sneak in? Like crash the party?

I could probably just find a girl to go with but that wouldn't be as fun of a story.

That is terrible. I mean it would be fun to have one over on the boys but if I think about it the other way around I would be pissed if I was excluded from anything that is considered a boys thing. It's a really crappy to do no matter how you look at it.

As a male SM fan, that's some BS sexism junk right there. Lame.

I don't see the problem, nor any reason to get worked up over this. I don't give a fudge personally, and even if I would, there is a more effective way than bitching about sexism, and I just hate irritating sour whiny-whining no matter who it comes from, I just enjoy life~ :3

That more effective way will happen automatically: people who can't come to the event and are dissapointed about that will likely be much less interested in buying the blu-ray's of the new show when they come out, so we will just have to wait for the shareholders to ask about the reason behind the lower-than-expected number of pre-orders. Problem solved.
