Summer of Sailor Scouts

Fighting evil by moonlight
Winning love by daylight
Never running from a real fight!
They are the one named Sailor Scouts!

Welcome to the Summer of Sailor Scouts! (Aka July!)

Earlier this year, Alexa of Alexa Loves Books, Cristina of Girl in the Pages, Kristin of Super Space Chick, Sierra of SDavReads, and I all discovered that we shared a mutual love and appreciation for Sailor Moon! After exchanging plenty of flailing tweets and constantly bringing up our love for this magical girl story, we felt it was only right to celebrate it, and that’s what’s happening this July! Every week will feature a brand new blog post per day from each of us, and we’re excited to be sharing the Sailor Moon love with all our readers!

If you’re curious about what to expect from Summer of Sailor Scouts, here’s the official schedule:

  • June 29: The Sailor Moon Book Tag + Event Announcement (Today!)
  • July 4-8: Sailor Scout Book Recommendations
  • July 11-15: Sailor Moon Favorites
  • July 16-22: Sailor Moon Swag
  • July 23-29: Sailor Moon Manga (Vol 1.) Read-along + Discussion

Also, the event will be going from blog to blog, so please make sure you’re following all of us! Here’s the posting schedule:

And that’s it! I really hope you’ll be joining us in celebrating our love for Sailor Moon.

*Fun fact: the planets in the banner for The Summer of Sailor Scouts are in order of the Scout’s first appearance of the show! :D

  4. Eeek! I’m definitely going to participate in the book tag tomorrow! Summer of Sailor Scouts is such an epic idea! I’m super behind on Sailor Moon Crystal, but I love it! It gives me such nostalgia! Sailor Moon was my first Shoujo experience when I was little. I’m even cosplaying Sailor Mars at an anime convention at the end of July. #TsundereGirlsRock The English dub actors for Sailor Mars and Tuxedo Mask will be doing a panel there, and I’m so excited!

    Awww…I just found Tuxedo Mask funko so I’m definitely gonna start collecting the sailor ones. I use to love sailor moon when I was younger (still do) My favorites were Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn
