Argh! Some things should not be allowed to exist. A good example of this is "Sailor-Moon". Another is "Fan-Fiction". Some concepts should not co-exist. One example of this is "Sailor-Moon Fan-Fiction". My world is crumbling around me, for not only DOES such evil exist, but somebunny has managed to combine it with "Dark" and - most horrific of all - yes, "Good" - to produce "Good (Dark (Sailor-Moon Fan-Fiction))". Such things were not meant to be.
I read it, I liked it. Can I no longer regard myself as beyond such gross horrors of the internet?
Oh wait. The author claims it not to be a sailor-moon fic. That makes it all alright then. Because he is LYING. (Well, it doesn't appear to share the universe just the culture and... I never said that. I would have no idea about it. IKnowNothing. you CantProveAThing.)
So, that would make most fantasy stories LordOfTheRings "fics" then? And you'd call StarWars a StarTrek "fic"? SailorNothing bears the same (or less) relation to Sailor-Moon than those pairs do. It's correctly described as in the same genre: "bishoujo sentai", i.e. "pretty girl fighting team", usually highschool girls who have a nice magical transformation sequence. But, as is made abundantly clear by the skit at the start of the first chapter, it's definitely not got the same attitude as those do - it's a dark parody of the normal MagicalGirl? genre. ...Not that I'm particularly fussed about convincing you, since we both think it's a good story worth reading, which is the important thing :) -- AlexChurchill
I refuse, in the face of all fact, that any other group of people would be so evil as to create a whole genre of sailor magical girls with wands and cats. I refuse also to believe that there were sufficient quantities made to build a ladder to orbit out of them. It never happened. SailorMoon is bad enough - there being more of it is just too horrible to contemplate.
I can understand this point. Perhaps we ought to try to convince the [Animanga Database] of this? They currently list at least 12 MagicalGirl? series, and they've not got every popular anime in the database by any means... --AlexChurchill
