For a article in Dension magazine about Fairy Tales and the changing nature of how these stories are told — from Grimm’s tales, to the super-scrubbed happy Disney tales through to the darker popularity of shows like Breaking Bad now. Fairy tale expert Maria Tatar also discusses how some of the world’s oldest tales help us navigate modern life.
Big thanks to Erin from Em Dash for this very interesting project!
Happy Valley “Sailor Moon” || ハッピーバリー’セーラームーン’
Happy Valley “Sailor Moon” is a hybrid orchard flower and a special breed of Cymbidium. The yellow color of the flower inspired scientist Shigeru Makoto Kono to name it after Sailor Moon since the yellow color of the flower matched the color of Sailor Moon’s hair.
The flower makes appearances on three manga images in the 5th artbook as well as on the cover of the 18th volume of the original manga.
