Over the years, we've seen Sailor Moon stationery, fancy clothes, bags, pens, headphones, chopsticks, video games, underwear, toys, figurines, perfume, anime, dinner plates, live-action musicals, and now as Yahoo! News reports, there's this: Sailor Moon sanitation pads.

As IT Media also reports, Japanese brand Elleair is rolling out the Sailor Moon feminine hygiene napkins on November 1 in Japan. Unlike many anime and game themed product collaborations, which tend to only feature the characters only on the packaging, this actually has Sailor Moon designs emblazoned on the pads.

Elleair already makes a line of all-night sanitary napkins that features a crescent moon logo, so perhaps that explains the branding? Maybe? That, or they've run out of things to put Sailor Moon on.

Be sure to check out the above video for a truly impressive collection of Sailor Moon merchandise. And, in case you missed it, check out (here, here, and here) some of Kotaku's previous Sailor Moon Crystal coverage.

DISCUSSION

You know what? Considering that products that already have gender-specific marketing for men's toiletries (e.g., body sprays, soaps) that crosses over with stereotypical men's interests (e.g., video games, sports), I see no problem with this. Equality, my friends. If a guy wants Batman Band-Aids (and don't you dare tell me that only children use them), and a girl wants Sailor Moon sanitary pads, then by God, let it be so. Come, let us be nerds together. And then, someday, perhaps, there will be Sailor Moon Band-Aids and Batman sanitary pads, and all will be right in the world. Amen.
