Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon - Act 06 [x]
Here’s another thing I really enjoy about the manga—shit makes the newspaper. Tuxedo Mask, Sailor Moon, and Sailor V all have made the newspaper, they’ve been noticed and even stopped to ask questions about their involvement (or at least Tuxedo Mask has) and I really like that!
I don’t need hyper realistic grimdark stuff, but I enjoy that there’s a touch of realism in the manga. ….even as you have a strange cat reading the newspaper like Ikuko isn’t even phased by this apparently. Whatever.
This comes up in the Black Moon arc as well, where Berthier goes on tv to talk about the White Moon family and it’s nothing that massively impacts the plot, but I feel like it makes the characters less disconnected from the world they live in, that their activities are noticed and actually impact the world, beyond just the saving of it. it makes Crystal Tokyo make a little more sense to me, that people could recognize the efforts of these people, even if they’re only just going WHY ARE YOU TRYING TO STEAL THIS SUPPOSEDLY SUPER VALUABLE CRYSTAL??? at this point in time.
