Sailor Moon at School

Post by Celexa » Sun Dec 28, 2003 12:23 pm

Have you ever put Sailor Moon into projects or reports? What were they like? I know I definantly had some experinces, some good, some not so good.

1) Nothing too major, I was asked to write questions on elements, so I wrote about how I was glad about how they had Plutonium, Uranium, and Neptunium, but why they didn't some some elements Saturnium or Jupiternium.

2) Once again nothing too major, but whenever I'm asked to draw a picture for any reports, I draw anime style.

3) This one's sorta major. We were asked to make a project on any seven choices about the novel Freak the Mighty, so I chose to write about the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). I took the coloring book picture of Usagi and Chibiusa in nurse outfits, and since I didn't want to have to deal with that "Anime sucks quit using it" look from this kid in class, I made the hair "sensible" (down and brown instead of multicolored) and made it look like me and one of my otaku senshi. For the "The End" slide, I erased the bowl of porrige and put "The End" there. Everyone loved it! They said it was so cute! Even one of the "Arielle (that's my real name) Needs To Stop Watching So Much Anime" kids complimented me!

4) This one is not so good. We were asked to do either an oral presentation, or powerpoint and talk thing on any book, along with a list of 50 (no exaggeration, they were numbered!) project ideas. One of them was to compare a book to a movie, so I decided to do the Sailor Moon S movie and tankouben 11. And for note, this project was given at the middle of the year, due at the end. I worked my arse off for just about every day that I had after school, and created a nice powerpoint with five sections, some fanmade GIFs, movies (they didn't work on the teacher's laptop...sniff...), images, introductions to the senshi, and even background music. When I tried to save it the night before it was due, the whole thing wouldn't fit on a floppy, so I quickly deleted the introductions to the senshi and put on the pictures of the Senshi wedding and planned to introduce them like that. The day it was due, my mom put my hair up in odanges like Usagi's as I was talking from her point of view. I also wore a locket I bought to school to represent the ginzishou. I also spent an hour of my time learning how to do Sailor Moon's hand movements. To add to all that, I brought in the Sailor Moon S DVD and tankouben 11 for viewing. I did my powerpoint, but I forgot to explain some things about the senshi, so I happily answered the teacher's questions. Then, my teacher decided to throw in the damn (Excuse me, just thinking about this now makes me sooo mad) comment "Who else didn't understand Arielle's presentation?" Everyone raised their hands except one girl, who had previous experince with Sailor Moon. I was just about ready to buckle down and start crying. If I hadn't taken my anti-depressant pill (keeps my from crying easily and being too sensitive) I would have collapsed on the floor and sobbed. Then a girl complained on how it was too long, when it was only ten minutes! I sat next to the girl who knew about Sailor Moon, and she told me it was wonderful, which helped a little bit. I told my friends that I while giggling madly that I lost all sanity except 5 percent to not start crying right there. When I got home, I just collapsed on the couch and told my mom what happened, and cried for about an hour. Everyone I talked to about it, even my friends to tends to like to disagree with me, told me how rude it was. While I've gotten over it, I can never quite forgive that teacher.

I dislike people at my school who find the need to show off the fact that they enjoy anime. I find it a bit obsessive.

I like it because it tells me who my fellow otakus are, and who I can be more lenient about my obsession with. After being hurt by that evil teacher I tend to not show it off as much, but I still do.

I was one of those people my first two years of college, so I must defend myself. It's not showing off if you're honestly wanting to teach someone about it. For example, I had to do a powerpoint presentation over ANYTHING I knew about. I chose anime. I worked damn hard for weeks, showing the art style, the types of anime, several different creators' works, and so forth, and I got an A on that presentation and a lot of people were fascinated. In another incident, we had to write a "something you know about" essay in my english class. Again, I wrote about anime, and made sure to define any foreign word in there and I made it easy enough to understand. I got an A on that paper, as well.
It's not obsessive if you honestly know enough about something and you have the opportunity to share it with other people. How is that any different than if you know about, say, the Islamic religion, and you want to share it with other people?

Tiffu, did the people in your class like anime, not know about it, or hate it? In my case for the powerpoint, two people in class hated it, one liked it, the rest were ignorant. The class had about 20 people.

Doing a project or two on anime is fine, but there are some people who don't know when to quit. They try to incorporate anime into anything and everything. It makes me embarrassed to be a fan of anime, because I do not wish to be associated with those who have nothing else to talk about.

My very first question was, "How many of you have heard of, let's say, Dragon Ball Z or Sailor Moon?" About two guys knew what DBZ was, and one woman had seen sailormoon once. Everyone else was ignorant, and they listened to my presentation with great interest. I even had some questions at the end. This is coming from a class that was full of immature football players and middle-aged women.

Sounds like my class, except most of them listened with confusion rather than interest. It made sense in the beginning though, I explained the legend of Princess Kaguya and that. What everyone didn't understand is about the senshi coming from their own planets and how they protect the earth. It was kinda funny though.

Teacher: Why do they protect it?
Me:
*thoughts*: What else would superheroes do?
*words*: Because they love the planet and want to protect it's beauty and the people that live on it.

But she didn't have to be rude about the forgotten information though. Before she said "who else didn't understand Arielle's presentation" bit, I clearly aplolgized to the whole class about the forgotton information, and explained how it was hard to put together the powerpoint s, along with the previous eighty-some episodes and thirty-some acts, while only picking out the main points.

I guess you can say I'm one of those 'obsessive' people. But I'm not like "Yo dude ANIME IS SO KOOL!" "ANIME IS GOD!"

-My first book report was on a Sailor Moon book
-For a long time I've used names from anime characters when writing stories.
-I did a 'How to draw a manga character' last year
-I did a Chobits book report this year (In which most people were impressed) ^^
-Last year, I did an essay about anime and manga. Explaining about censorship, and stuff.

Now a days, people act like they know ALOT about anime. --
"Yeah, dude I heard Chobits was like gay"
"Sailor Moon, yeah I like hated that show"- Everyone
"Oh, MAN-GA that's where everyone looks alike right?" -Teacher

And here's my favorite
"Eww, go away"
"Why? I'm just going waiting for someone"
"You like Sailor Moon"

--

I think I'm not going to do much more anime related stuff in school anymore. God, do I hate everyone in Tinton Falls --

I agree with Jeff, mostly. However, what Tiff, Celexa, and Umino did were acceptable to me. Speeches explaining anime or manga are good, if presented correctly. Like, if it is indeed an informative speech and not a 10 minute rave about anime and how "it's so kool." I've a friend whom I introduced to anime, and now, she won't shut up about it. I dislike it alot because she doesn't really know anything about it, but she goes on and on, to anyone, which makes anyone else who's a fan of anime (a real fan), seem like her. We are not raving lunatics. Most of us know what the hell we're talking about. :wink:

Anime at School

Post by wsleigh » Sun Dec 28, 2003 1:32 pm

The difference between our schools is just crazy. You guys have it so hard. In High School we had an Anime Club with over 50 members, we only watched anime that was subtitled we stayed at school past 7 at night when school ended at 3:10. The club sponsered Anime nights where we'd rent the auditoruim and watch like 5 hours of Anime, win prizes and have people from different schools over. The leader was unreputable, sold fandubs (that are not sellable, they are fan for fan only) but we did anime parties behind her back and had a good time without her.

In college there was this mighty big anime club. There was a charge per head to get in to pay for the room and the rental of the equipment and we'd watch 8-9 hours of anime on Saturday. If no one had anything better to do we'd stay longer. The leader was nice, she talked to you like a real person and as a bonus you could give her blank Cds and she'd copy this new type of video format for you with all the newest anime from Japan.

I hope your schools change for you and you can have this much fun.

One of the problems at my school was the fact that it was a small school in a rural area, so you had to actively seek out anime to find it. You know what I mean? It was never "pop culture."

The high school I'm going to go to has an anime club! Mark my words, I.Shall.Join! The best part is that everyone there, according to the newspapers, preferrs to watch the anime as it originally is, so I might be able to have as fun as you!

And I know you weren't saying I was, but I didn't ramble about anime for ten minutes, it was the S movie and all that.

In my sophomore year of high school (I think) I did a speech about anime, mostly focusing on the cultural symbolism aspects of it. I used Sailor Moon pictures for examples and sung the NA theme song. The only problem was that I got lots of requests from students to sing that song again!

On the last day of school for choir I showed the class the first episode of my Sailor Moon fandub, and they (all non-Sailor Moon fans) liked it and begged for more! (of course, it had to be turned off even before her first transformation because there were other presentations to do)
For my english class here in my college, I did a paper on voice acting, and I mentioned anime dubs, but not Sailor Moon (I think I mentioned Card Captor Sakura's dub changes). Also, this is very tiny, but in my college paper (the most recent one) on the British stereotype, I mentioned the NA dub Luna as being a representative of a character whose English accent is supposed to make them seem smarter.

Finally, in Japanese class we were supposed to point out objects and I used my little Mars and Jupiter figurines that I keep in my backpack (I also keep Mercury, Moon, Chibi Moon, Venus, Star Maker, and Star Healer in there too).

The worst Sailor Moon/school experience was just this last year of high school. For our homecoming week we have special days for dressing up. Because we were one day short (the Friday was no school), we seniors didn't get to have superhero day. I saw some people had put up announcements for "Bring back Superhero Day!" and I asked the principal if it was okay for me to dress up with a wig. So I wore my Sailor Mars outfit to school, and there were two REALLY bad things:
1) This one boy made me cry when he said that I would get in trouble for dressing up like that.
2) People called me "Sailor Moon," which made me mad since that's NOT who I was dressed as!! Also, when I wore just the red pleated skirt much later, this one girl who I don't get along with called me Sailor Moon all that class.

My high school and college both have/had anime clubs, but in high school I went for one time, watched the SuperS movie, cried because this girl (who I later befriended) kept saying to kill Chibi-Usa-sama, and then I didn't like going because it was too noisy and I was in a phase where I would just watch Sailor Moon only. I did show my SailorStars fansubs twice, (167-170 one time, 179-182 the other) and those were well-received. At my college, the group seemed too rowdy, not to mention one girl teased me when I entered (she said it wasn't the anime club room). I think I prefer watching my anime alone or with only a few select people, as I do anything.

As a teacher, it was wrong for her to humiliate a student like that. She should have simply said "thank you. Next?" and then either talked to you about it ALONE after class, or written you a note or something. That's just bad teaching.

Exactly. There's a difference between standing up and ranting and raving about anime, especially when you have minimal knowledge on the subject, but if you're asked to do an informative presentation..then why not present what you know?

Anyway, I'm noticing that this thread is going more toward "how is anime treated in your high school", so let's try to stay on topic.

Aww, poor Celexia T_T. What a mean teacher. I think the only thing anime related I've put into my work is the anime-esque drawings I do (but that's only because I can only draw anime-style).

I have always wanted to feature some anime (preferably Sailormoon) in my projects. But that is why I almost never do Sailormoon just because it takes so long to explain everything in order for it to make sense for viewers that haven't seen Sailormoon. :? So for now, I just draw anime-styled art projects.

I've only featured anime in a few reports. For instance, when asked to write a speech about "To Kill a Mockingbird" describing how noble Atticus Finch was, I quoted a line from Utena. It was the one about "Man or woman, one of strength and nobility is always a prince" (from the manga). And my class responded well to the speech. I was also asked to write an article for my school newspaper explaining Manga, and why it was "backwards." And every now and then, I include/recommend select manga for my Library Studies work. We have to take 10 books of a certain subject and place them out to attract students. I did Romance, and included Mars, and my co-assistant did Science Fiction, and I helped him create his bookmarks by finding pictures to put on them. Everyone at school loved them. Of course, who wouldn't love a bookmark featuring Alita (from Battle Angel Alita) with blades, getting ready to kill something.
