Show Notes

What if you had one chance, one shot to talk with a super-fan about Sailor Moon fandom and how it lead to moving across the globe from to Japan? Well, you'd be in the position Nick T is in as he chats with Jason, author of _Tuxedo Unmasked_ to get a better understanding of what Sailor Moon fandom is like, and what life as a fan is like in Japan! ## Where can I learn more about Jason and _Tuxedo Unmasked_? > I’ve been a fan of _Sailor Moon_ since the late 1990s (1997, to be exact) and have been passionate about the series and characters ever since. I’ve run multiple websites (and fanfiction archives) dedicated to the series over the years, but unfortunately university and work life took over and I fell out of all that for several years and just “being a fan” had to take a back seat. > > However, with the new release of the web-based series _Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon Crystal_, I’ve started re-reading all the old manga and watching through the old anime, and really wanted to dig deep into all those questions that were left unanswered. I realized that making this in-depth analysis into the history of – and stories behind – _Sailor Moon_ was my chance to (finally?) make use of my degree in Japanese history and occupation as a Japanese translator. > — [Tuxedo Unmasked - About](https://www.tuxedounmasked.com/about/) If you want to learn more about Jason and his work, you can check out: - Tuxedo Unmasked: https://www.tuxedounmasked.com/ - On Twitter: [@t_unmasked](https://twitter.com/t_unmasked) - On Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/tuxedounmasked ## Sources - Opening music, ["Sailor Moon"](https://soundcloud.com/nospoonkid/sailor-moon) by Nospoonkid used under [CC BY-NC-SA 3.0](https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/) - Ending music, ["Bounty Hunter"](http://music.djcutman.com/album/volume-iv) by Dj CUTMAN used under [CC BY-NC-SA](https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/)

Minisode: Has Fandom Gone Too Mainstream?

If elected, T will ensure that all fans, no matter what they believe, will be able to walk around with Dakimakura in public, without being ridiculed.
