The Year of the Magical Girl

Hello Hello, Lil Buns!

Hope you're all doing well! Today, I'd like to talk to you about Magical Girls - particularly the merch. I grew up watching the original Sailor Moon, Pretear, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Cardcaptor Sakura and one of my personal favorites - Magic Knight Rayearth.

I Love Being a Magical Girl!

Did you know that Sailor Moon is celebrating 25 years this year?! That's right - everyone's favorite soldier in a sailor uniform has been fighting evil for 25 years! 5 years ago for the first anniversary, we saw a lot of Sailor Moon specific goodies. But this year we're seeing a ton of collabs with other brands for all kinds of merch! 

The one I'm really waiting for is with My Melo!

How adorable is that art?! It looks like they made My Melo into an honorary scout ♥

For this collab, we will get all kinds of goodies including bags, plushies, stationary and even household items!

The collab items are slated to be released for sale on Aug. 3rd! 
And if you're lucky enough to be in Japan as early as July 29, there will be special events for the release in different locations!

I hope we can all get what we want :)

Shop Here!

Looks like Creer Beaute is at it again! Known for their Sailor Moon and Cardcaptor Sakura items with Bandai, they announced another magical girl makeup line! This time it's with one of my favorite series - Magic Knight Rayearth!

It looks like this set features Hikaru with her sword and chest plate designs!

The sword actually "unsheathes" to become a lipstick. How adorable is that?!

The "chest plate" is actually a powder - complete with a puff and mirror.

You can pre-order now and they will be shipped out in September.

I'm hoping they will release pieces for Umi and Fuu as well ♥
Is there anything you want to get?

That's all for now! See you next time!


  1. Yes, this year has been awesome for magical girls! I bought the Cardcaptor Sakura set, visited the Cardcaptor Sakura pop-up cafe (branch from Japan), and bought some memorabilia!!!

    I'd nearly forgotten about Magic Knights Rayearth as I was very young when I say it. But hopefully I'll be able to save my money not blowing it on collaboration items!!! I even missed out on the Cardcaptor Sakura lucky bags T^T But my friend got the staff mirror (lucky!)

    1. Awww you're so lucky! I wish stuff like that would be available here T_T

      MKR was one of my absolute favorite series! You just didn't really expect the plot twist! There was a lucky bag for CCS?! Where and when was this?! I have to find out what was inside!
