Sketch of Sailor Mercury signed and drawn by Sailor Moon and Wedding Peach character designer, Kazuko Tadano ( 只野 和子 ).

Tadano was the first character designer for the Sailor Moon series. Her designs were used for the first two Sailor Moon seasons as well as the first Sailor Moon movie. I've never particularly cared for her interpretation of the characters as it feels as if the designs would be more at home in a 1980s anime instead of one from the 1990s.

Tadano and her husband, Hiromi Matsushita, were special guests at PMX 2014. I knew that I would have to attend as it had been years since she had attended a con in the US. Although not a large convention, Tadano had one of the largest autograph lines I'd seen of any PMX guest. I was very happy to be one of a handful of people who were able to get a sketch from her.

I gave Tadano and Matsushita a small gift, and in return, they both gave me some Japanese candy and an origami crane they made. A friend of mine happened to interview Tadano and received her business card, which he then gave to me.
