North 221AB Anime

Friday June 2, 2023 - 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm

Sailor Moon was one of the most influential shows of the 90's, often being heralded as ahead of its time for its feminism, heavy topics, queer inclusion, and general storytelling. This panel will dig into what made Sailor Moon so captivating and influential, along with lesser known influences on the show itself including 1910's romantic era prints, high fashion, and tropes from queer-coded Japanese female-female love stories. It will also consider whether anything in modern media is successfully filling the spaces Sailor Moon filled for so many 90's kids.
