Honestly, this is something I’ve thought about, but I have no clue how I think it’ll turn out. If I had to take a guess, though, I imagine it’ll likely end up being similar to the art style that Naoko had evolved to for the manga re-release covers.
(Which, truth be told, I’m not nearly as fond of the re-release covers or Naoko’s mild evolution in style, but it’s still very lovely and I’d be excited about it nonetheless.)
Of course, I know it’s going to be more modern and shinier, but I hope it retains the distinct style that sets both the anime and manga apart from other series.
Guess what blog is kind of back, ya’ll.
For all intents and purposes, Magical Compact is essentially closing up shop. I’ve combed through the series multiple times, and I believe really and truly that I’ve captured some of the best panels within the series (if not the ones that aren’t covered by text I can’t reasonably remove). I have no doubt that I’ll be updating once in a while with more panels or gifs or colorings, but those updates will probably be sporadic. There are thousands of you now, and I’m so stoked that you’ve followed and enjoyed the panels with me. This began as a blog that I wanted to keep just for my own entertainment, and so many of you got on my wagon — I’m still kind of shocked. Sailor Moon is an amazing and gorgeous series (although I can’t honestly bring myself to read through it one more time for a good, long while).
This isn’t an official closure, but more of a notice that the blog won’t be very active anymore. There are still quite a few days of posts left in the queue, so fear not! At this cease of activity, what I really want to say to everyone is just “thank you”, and I hope you might come stop by at deliciouspunch.
