Atari Sailor Moon

No, I'M The Crown Jewel In This Collection!

animism -- (n) The belief that all things, from living beings to the silverware in your kitchen, possess some sort of soul and awareness.

I don't believe in animism, but I'm starting to wonder if there is some sort of rivalry between my Deadpool game for the XBox 360 and my Sailor Moon games for the Atari 2600.

At present, both games have four signatures on them.  A week ago, I discovered that Veronica Taylor, the voice of Sailor Pluto, would be at C2E2.  As I am passing on Stan Lee's signature, that would mean Sailor Moon has five sigs while Deadpool is stuck at four.

Today, checked the guest list.  And a new guest is listed, Steve Blum.  Blum does a TON of voice work, in anime dubs, regular animation, and video games.

Among his credits is the voice of Wolverine in the Deadpool video game.  Which would take the total up to five, tying it with what I anticipate for Sailor Moon.

At C2E2 in 2016, I got the sigs on Sailor Moon and two on Deadpool.  I got the third and fourth on Sailor Moon, and then got the third and fourth on Deadpool.  Now, a week after discovering Target #5 for Sailor Moon, I discover Target #5 for Deadpool.  And that's disregarding one sig that would give Poolie D. six.

I don't know what's going on, but maybe I should make a Doctor Who game and see how many sigs I'll get on that.
