Only hardcore Sailor Moon fans will probably get this. That’s why we left this one out of the original anime arc. I still thought it was funny enough to post as an outtake.
Sometimes humor that references relatively obscure cartoons gets really obscure when you consider that the material in question may have aired a lot differently in other countries. Early ports of anime here got chopped up to make it “kid friendly”. It was pretty bad, but sometimes it also became awesomely bad – or just made for some really, really odd situations.
The Catena reboot will probably have less focus on pop culture humor since I’d like for it to live within its own world. With that said, I would like to do another anime arc sometime. That may take on a life of its own as an infrequent spin-off or something. Time and funding will tell really.
I hope everyone has managed to stay out of the blistering heat. It is absolutely brutal here. The grass has gone crunchy and it’s even hot at night.
Stay safe – and cool – out there!
