Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon's weapon - Moon Stick-shaped chopsticks

 

No doubt that almost all girls in Japan from their mid-20s to mid-30s were into the significant 1990s "Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon" anime series when they were children, which started as a manga series first published in 1992 and later became very popular as a TV series. The major characters are regular teenage girls but transform into heroines with names based on planet names including Sailor Moon, Sailor Mercury, Sailor Mars, Sailor Jupiter, and Sailor Venus.

Last year, on its 20th anniversary, it was announced that Soldier Sailormoon will make a comeback in 2013 as a TV series with a theme song sung by the currently most popular female idol group, Momoiro Clover Z.

Currently, production of the TV series has been postponed and the details of the comeback haven't been unveiled yet.

However, Bandai just released a kawaii chopsticks series in the motif of Sailor Moon's weapons. The models are: Moon Stick, Cutie Moon Rod, and Pink Moon Stick.



If you are a big Sailor Moon fan, we guess you would like to swing the chopsticks around saying "Moon Healing Escalation!", but please keep in mind that swinging chopsticks is bad manners at the table!

Price: ¥1,575
