I smell trouble brewing

So I was talking to Tobie about this recently: There’s a book called Galactic Rapture by Tom Flynn that I used to own, though sadly I never got around to reading it before most of my old book collection disappeared (so I have no idea if it’s any good, but that’s not the point here). The basic premise is that there’s a large and diverse society of sapients in the galaxy, and Earth is a no-name chump in that society, except for one key export: Apparently, the galaxy really took to Roman Catholicism.

It seems that Pope Francis would get behind this kind of thing.

Yo so I wanna watch more classic Sailor Moon style magical girl anime. I don’t want to watch Sailor Moon classic yet as I’m watching Crystal and don’t want to spoil myself, but I wanna know more about the genre in general.

I don’t want recs of deconstructions like Madoka Magica, I want the original, genuine article.

I’ve already seen Revolutionary Girl Utena (a deconstruction) and Princess Tutu (which I’d actually argue starts as deconstruction but then whips around and becomes a reconstruction)


I asked this question a while back, and you can see the biggest reblog and some of the other responses in the notes here. Other shows mentioned in asks were Mai Hime and Tokyo Mew Mew. Having not seen any of the shows in question yet, their actual quality is up in the air, but there’s a list.
