InterMeows: What's next for Sailor Guardians in the upcoming Shadows arc?

Luna: Welcome to InterMeows, a show by your favorite cats! We're Luna...

Artemis: Artemis...

A little gray kitten: And I am Diana! Hi everyone!!

(continues under readmore)

Luna: Diana?! How did you get here?

Diana: Come on, Mom, aren't you happy to meet your future daughter?

Artemis: Ehm, Diana, we're very happy! But we're actually in the middle of something...

Diana: Oh, a show! InterMeows, I see! Who are you interviewing?

Artemis: Well...

Luna: We could interview you if you like!

Diana: Oh, yes, I'd like that! What are your questions?

Artemis: Well, I believe the first question is - why are you here? What made you come back from the future all of a sudden?

Diana: Oh, I came to warn you! There's a big threat awaiting you and the Sailor Guardians! Sailor Pluto sent me to tell you this!

Luna: Oh, well... Did she specify what exactly the threat will be and how we combat it?

Diana: N-not exactly... But she told you to look out! And that you might get help from where you least expect it!

Artemis: Well, that isn't making things much clearer...

Diana: You know how the laws of Time are! She can't exactly tell you the future...

Luna: Yeah, that's fair. So the danger is approaching, huh...

Diana: It seems so...

Artemis: To be fair, we've kind of suspected that already.

Diana: You did? But why?

Artemis: Sailor Moon Space's second Arc is coming soon! And it's going to be ten episodes long! That's twice as long as the Crystals arc was, and what happened there was already pretty intense...

Luna: Well, let's not make any assumptions yet. What else do we know about the Shadows Arc? Are there any promo pictures out yet?

Artemis: There is one! Look, it says there's going to be a new character!

Diana: Cool! Can I see the picture?

Luna: Here it is. What do you say, Diana? Have you seen this person in the future?

Diana: No... I haven't. But that doesn't mean they aren't there, you know? I don't see the Outer Guardians much, too, they're on their duties far away from the Crystal Palace all the time! I almost forgot how Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus look like.

Artemis: Well, we don't see them often here, too. Maybe they will return this time to help us fight this mysterious enemy? That would be nice, wouldn't it?

Diana: From what I've seen in the future, it's possible! They might appear in your next adventure!

Luna: Well, the more, the merrier. Don't know about this new character though... Something's bothering me about them.

Artemis: What exactly?

Luna: Well, they hide their face with those sunglasses, for starters.

Artemis: So does Tuxedo Mask, and yet he is on our side. He has helped us countless times before we even knew him! And, well, Sailor Venus used to wear a mask too.

Luna: I guess you right... This new Sailor Guardian might be on our side. But if they truly are, why won't they come up to us and talk? Why hide in the shadows like that?

Artemis: Maybe they aren't hiding from us. Maybe they're just trying to confuse the enemy. That's what Minako and I did, back in the day. We can't judge them now, Luna, they haven't even appeared in an episode yet!

Luna: Sorry... It's just... Diana told us to be aware. That's what Sailor Pluto said, right? We have to be careful!

Diana: She also said that you'll find help where you least expect it!

Luna: Yeah, I suppose...

Artemis: We don't have to trust this new character fully. We just have to give them a chance. We haven't met them yet!

Luna: Maybe we have... They seem to be awfully good at hiding. But you're right. We should wait and see. When's the first episode airing, anyway?

Artemis: Uhm..

Diana: Uhm...

The author: Uhm...

Artemis: ...At some point in 2021, that's for sure.

Luna: Well, that's encouraging...

Diana: Mom, Dad, I have to go back! It was nice meeting you, but I can't stay any longer! Thanks for the interview!

Artemis: Okay, Diana, take care! Stay close to your home and don't get lost!

Diana: I will, dad!

Luna: And don't forget to drink water! It's very important!

Diana: Fine, mom!

Artemis: Should we end the show now then?

Diana: Oh! I almost forgot to tell you one last thing!

Luna: What thing?

Diana: Sailor Pluto told me... She told you to beware of the Shadow Entities! Okay, this is it, bye!

The gray kitten disappears.

Artemis: Shadow Entities... Do you have any idea what those are?

Luna: Guess we're about to find out...

Artemis: And that concludes the show for now! See you in the next episode!

Luna: Don't forget to stay home and drink water! We will see you in the next episode!

InterMeows: Who is Neo-Queen Serenity?

Luna: Hi and welcome to the second episode of InterMeows! I'm Luna (she/her)...
Artemis: I'm Artemis (he/him).
Luna: And we're here again today to... Break the fourth wall a little bit!
Artemis: Don't... Say it like that.
Luna: This really isn't new, Artemis. Sailor Moon has interacted with viewers before. But let's face it, we are more consistent than her...
Artemis: And we know more than enough about Sailor Guardians and events surrounding them to have our own show!
Luna: Oh, that's true. That's what we've talked about the first episode. A lot! By the way, if you have no idea who Sailor Moon and her Sailor Guardians are, I suggest you read the previous episode first. That's where we're introducing them, and we also talk about their past and Moon Kingdom.
Artemis: And now, let's continue where we left off.

(read more under the cut)

Luna: We've talked about the past before, let's talk about the future! Spoilers ahead, I guess...
Artemis: The future of Planet Earth is discussed a lot in the second season of Sailor Moon.
Luna: That's when we first met Chibiusa, a little girl with pink hair, who came to us from the future! Completely unexpectedly...
Artemis: Her home was invaded by the evil Black Moon Clan, and she ran away to the past, hoping to find the Silver Crystal.
Luna: And then the enemies followed her back to our time, and Sailor Guardians were protecting this little girl.
Artemis: Eventually, Chibiusa has brought us to the Time Gate she came here through. Time Gate is guarded by Sailor Pluto - the Sailor Guardian with the powers of space-time manipulation. Sailor Pluto opened the gate for Chibiusa as she escaped, and she let Sailor Guardians, Tuxedo Mask, and us in to look at the future.
Luna: That's when we found out more about Chibiusa's family and who she really was! She showed us her home.
Artemis: The city Chibiusa brought us to is called Crystal Tokyo, the future capital of Earth. Chibiusa's parents live in the Crystal Palace since they are royalty. Their names? Neo-Queen Serenity and King Endymion.
Luna: Sounds familiar? Well, that's because they're the future Princess Serenity and Prince Endymion, also known as Usagi and Mamoru!
Artemis: We've learned that one day, Usagi will be able to fully possess the true power of the Silver Crystal. This power is going to save the Earth from a natural disaster and ensure the long and peaceful lives of all humans. And that's when she gets proclaimed the queen of the world!
Luna: She won't be singlehandedly making all the political decisions in the world, though. I wouldn't trust any single person with this, let alone Usagi...
Artemis: But she can be trusted with Silver Crystal, which is the most reliable energy source when it comes to banishing darkness from deep space. So, Neo-Queen Serenity's mission is to protect the Earth from possible invasions...
Luna: This is also the mission of her King and her Sailor Guardians.
Artemis: Now, we all know it's going to happen, but we don't know exactly, when... But I have a feeling this events might be close already.
Luna: Oh! Do you remember the tiara Usagi has in the first episode of Sailor Moon Space, in her Celestial form? This tiara resembles the tiara Neo-Queen Serenity has. That's why I consider her new form an awakening as Neo-Queen Serenity!
Artemis: And that's probably why the episode is called "The Queen Awakens".
Luna: That means, soon, Sailor Guardians will be fully responsible for the safety of our planet...
Artemis: What do you think about this? Should we start training them for that?
Luna: It seems right, but... I don't think we should. The next few years might be the last chance our Guardians get to live as ordinary girls... And they deserve that life.
Artemis: You're right. We can't stop them from chasing their dreams. Ami wants to become a doctor, Rei is continuing her spiritual journey, Makoto plans to open a cafe, and Minako still dreams about being an idol...
Luna: And Usagi... She has a lot of dreams. But her biggest wish is probably to have a beautiful wedding... And to be a good mom. Again, we don't know when exactly that will happen, but... Chibiusa has stopeed coming to our timeline, since she feels like she's getting close to her own birth. And intersecting with your own self while time traveling for an extended period of time is against the time travelling laws.
Artemis: Speaking of which...
Luna: What?
Artemis: Chibusa is not the only one in the show who comes from the future...
Luna: Oh... Do you think we should tell them?
Artemis: The author says it's important...
Luna: Fine! In season four of Sailor Moon, Chibusa is accompanied by a tiny grey talking kitten with pink eyes.
Artemis: Her name is Diana.
Luna: And she is...
Artemis: Our...
Luna: Future...
Artemis: Daughter.
Luna: Don't ask, humans. It's none of your business.
Artemis: R-right...
Luna: Anyway, we've told them plenty of stuff already. Do you think it's time to end the episode?
Artemis: Perharps... I think this is all you need to know to finally start reading Sailor Moon Space!
Luna: And if you have any question, send an ask to this blog and we'll gladly answer them!
Artemis: We can also talk more in-depth about Usagi's new abilities and the power of Silver Crystal! But that will happen later, most likely...
Luna: Until then, bye!
Artemis: Bye!

InterMeows: Who are the Sailor Guardians and the Moon Princess?

Luna: Hi and welcome to InterMeows, a show by your favorite cats...
Artemis: Where we... interview ourselves, I guess.
Luna: This show is all part of Sailor Moon Space, a fan-made project based on Sailor Moon anime. The first five Sailor Moon Space episodes are already launched, you should check them out if you haven't yet!
Artemis: If they haven't yet... And what if our readers have never seen Sailor Moon? Unlikely, but not impossible...
Luna: Oh! That means they don't even know who you and I are!
Artemis: That means we should introduce ourselves properly. Ahem. My name is Artemis (he/him), this is my... friend, Luna (she/her)...
Luna: And to you, humans, we are probably what's best described as "talking cats".

(read more under the cut)

Artemis: It's a bit more complex than that... We speak a lot of languages, but actually the crescent moons on our foreheads are what helps you to understand us!
Luna: That's why, if you see a cat with a crescent moon on its forehead, you should never try to cover that with bandages or anything. It's not a scar or a bald spot, it's there for a reason. Just... Don't interfere. Trust me.
Artemis: Luna, did someone... Actually try to do this?
Luna: Some kids have caught me on my first day on Earth. I was careless. They were specifically interested in this crescent moon.
Artemis: Those bastards!...
Luna: Anyway, back then I was actually on a mission to find a girl called Usagi Tsukino. I needed her to awaken her powers and transform into a magical girl - Sailor Moon. At this point, everyone probably knows what she looks like. You know, sailor suit, blonde hair in an odango...
Artemis: Yeah, she is more famous than Sailor V now. I'm not complaining, though...
Luna: We'll get to her. As I was saying, the evil powers were sealed away long ago have awakened and were invading the Earth again, so I had to give Usagi the transformation brooch and teach her how to fight the demons! And, well, I also became her cat, so I live in her house now. That's also where her younger brother and her parents live. It's such a cozy place, and, her mom is a pretty good cook!
Artemis: My magical girl only buys me canned food...
Luna: You chose her first.
Artemis: It can be delicious, though! You should try some when we're at her house next time.
Luna: Okay...
Artemis: Good! So, yeah... Before Luna, I've arrived on Earth and found Minako Aino. I've taught her about her powers and gave her the transformation wand. She was fighting the evil powers by the name of Sailor V, and she was pretty famous! There was even a game about her. Later, she joined the team as Sailor Venus.
Luna: Usagi told me something about Sailor V right the day I met her. I didn't think too much about it back then... Anyway, we kept encountering new Sailor Guardians. First was Sailor Mercury, then Sailor Mars, then Sailor Jupiter... I saw the power in those girls and gave them their transformation wands so that they could fight alongside Sailor Moon.
Artemis: And then we've met and Sailor Venus also joined in.
Luna: So, what do you think about Sailor Guardians? Between us and the readers...
Artemis: Minako... This girl! Sometimes I think she's so obsessed with idols and romance novels, she loses track of reality.
Luna: Oh my God. Totally the same with Usagi. Head in the clouds every day... And she's so emotional, too!
Artemis: I have to say, Minako knows when to be serious. She's learned a lot while fighting on her own, and even more when she joined the Sailor Guardians. I can't think of a better person to lead the team...
Luna: Ahem.
Artemis: Well...
Luna: You are right. Venus is the leader for a reason. And Usagi... She still has a lot to learn, but she has come a long way since I've met her. She's truly changed, and she has changed everyone around her, too. Her kind heart truly brings out the best in people. I have to say, I'm really proud of her.
Artemis: Aww, Luna...
Luna: Don't tell her I said that. She'll probably strangle me with hugs...
Artemis: What about the others? Sailor Mercury?
Luna: Ami Mizuno is such a good girl. She went to the same school Usagi did, they are the same age. She's a straight-A student, very polite and intelligent.
Artemis: Why can't everyone be like her?...
Luna: I wonder every day. Next, we have Sailor Mars...
Artemis: Rei Hino, yeah. The shrine maiden. Hot-headed, passionate girl.
Luna: Her and Usagi tease each other a lot, but Rei cares about her deeply. I believe those two have a strong connection.
Artemis: Indeed. Next, we have Makoto Kino, Sailor Jupiter...
Luna: She is so strong! I was a little shocked when I first saw her. She brought down a demon twice her size with her bare hands before she even transformed!
Artemis: And yet, she's also very sensitive to heartbreak. She has a gentle heart, this girl...
Luna: Yeah... Well, now our readers know a little bit about our main characters!
Artemis: A little bit of terminology now. The team of Sailor Venus, Jupiter, Mars, and Mercury is called Inner Sailor Guardians. Yeah, I know, technically Jupiter is an outer planet, but...
Luna: That's how it was called since the Moon Kingdom days. There are also outer Sailor Guardians - Uranus, Neptune, Saturn, and Pluto. We don't interact with them as much, but they're still part of the team.
Artemis: Will they appear in Sailor Moon Space?
Luna: Spoilers!
Artemis: Right... Where was I? I think I was telling the readers about Sailor Venus joining the team... Oh, that's when we found out Sailor Moon was a reincarnation of the Moon Princess!
Luna: Dear readers, we should probably tell you about the Moon Kingdom. But it's such a sad story...
Artemis: We have to, Luna. It's an important part of Sailor Guardians' past, and about the Earth's past, too.
Luna: Well... A long time ago, there was a kingdom on the Moon called Silver Millenium, ruled by the Moon Queen, Serenity. The people of the kingdom lived long and happy lives thanks to the power of the legendary artifact, Silver Crystal, which belonged to the Queen. Her daughter, Princess Serenity, was a sweet, lovely girl, and she liked to visit the Earth. She fell in love with the Earth prince, Endymion. Even if they couldn't be together for a long time, they cared about each other dearly. I and Artemis lived in the Moon Kingdom back then. Everything around us felt so beautiful and peaceful, and then... Then...
Artemis: There was an invasion. Possessed by evil forces, Earth people attacked the Moon Kingdom suddenly. Endymion tried to protect the princess, and so did her Guardians, Sailor Guardians... But they failed.
Luna: The only way to seal the evil away was to use the power of Silver Crystal, which Queen Serenity did in the end. But handling this incredible amount of energy has cost her her life... Our dear Queen...
Artemis: She loved the Moon Kingdom and her people with all her heart. She was willing to make that sacrifice if that meant for everyone fallen in this tragic battle to be reborn on Earth, the planet her daughter loved so much.
Luna: And that's what happened. Moon Princess and her Sailor Guardians have been reborn on Earth. They've lived the lives of ordinary girls, but they still had their power within them, so our Queen told us to find them in case the evil forces break free again.
Artemis: Which they did... By the way, Endymion was also reborn on Earth as Mamoru Chiba. He now fights alongside Sailor Moon under the name Tuxedo Mask.
Luna: Funny how when they first met, Usagi and Mamoru both found each other really annoying. But now, they're dating each other, and their love is so strong...
Artemis: They've found each other in their second life... Truly, the star-crossed lovers!
Luna: Sailor Moon ended up using the Silver Crystal to destroy the darkness for good this time. I was so scared for her, but in the end, all of the Sailor Guardians survived!
Artemis: And then there was an alien invasion...
Luna: Then the evil dynasty came here from the future...
Artemis: Then a mad scientist wanted to steal everyone's hearts...
Luna: Then there was an evil circus...
Artemis: And then, we had to battle the Chaos itself...
Luna: But we won!
Artemis: And now, three years later, in Sailor Moon Space, we have to deal with some sort of evil power yet again...
Luna: I wonder what will happen.
Artemis: Well, I can only hope Sailor Guardians can handle this. After all, stories like ours usually have happy endings!
Luna: At least, that's all we can tell you. Spoilers, remember?
Artemis: Yeah, and that's probably enough of the show for today. But we still have a lot to talk about in the next issue! Like, your planet's future!
Luna: Artemis... The readers are currently in 2020.
Artemis: Oh gosh. That's rough. Hang in there, everyone.
Luna: But there's really something to talk about. For example, what's Crystal Tokyo? Will Usagi, that clumsy girl I know, really become the Queen of the Earth?
Artemis: That's more likely when you think!
Luna: We'll talk about this next time. Stay tuned!
Artemis: Bye!
